Adventure

Adventurers Types: The Most Famous Types of Traveller

September 09, 2019

Adventurers, open-minded, spontaneous, compassionate or playful enthusiasts have an optimistic and diverse approach to life. With the basic desire for satisfaction, people with this mood fear deprivation. They thrive in excitement and love to have new experiences. They are curious lovers. They follow what they want with determination and structure. Because they have a graceful mind that quickly absorbs information, adventurers will be desirable participants in brainstorming meetings, where they come up with unique creative ideas. If you're a travel enthusiast, you'll have plenty of options to enjoy when it comes to exploring things. These people have different ways out of the box. They follow their passion and lead a slightly different life. These junkies are known as adventurers. Now, there are ways to express themselves. If you are unsure about your way, this list will give you certain types to choose from.   What is an adventure? The adventure is a way of getting out of your comfort zone to open yourself to the many experiences and beauties that life gives you, no matter what path you choose to move forward. Types of Adventurers: The Nomad Often, adventurers are looking for a less travelled path. However, nomads take it to a whole new level. Whether it's a new city or village or coexisting with people from different cultures, nomads are there. Their slogan is simple - keep moving. And they go about it with rare pain. They move from one place to another, exploring destinations at will. The Adrenaline Junkie Have you experienced living life on the edge of a knife? No, so you haven't seen adrenaline addicts at action yet. These people are living examples of madness (in a good way, obviously). The thrill is their constant companion. One cannot simply wonder in their awe. For them, there is no elusive risk. From enjoying free fall while bungee jumping to talking to clouds while skydiving, these people did everything. The Flashpacker Luxury means many things to many people. Some find it in free wifi, others in the arms of nature. However, there are some people who expect the best of both worlds. Do you think this is too much? Not quite, if you flashbacker. They plan their adventures in such a precise way that they usually end up collapsing in a well-furnished suite after an arduous journey. Not bad, is it? The Wildlife Fan Steve Irwin is the first name that comes to mind when we hear from wildlife enthusiasts. Since appearing on the screen dealing with all kinds of wild animals in persimmons, he has been a whole generation inspired by his steps. This led to a brigade of wildlife enthusiasts, who wanted to quell their thirst for adventure by spending time with wild animals. The hostel in the middle of the forest is the perfect destination for them. Not quite like Tarzan, but close enough. The Volunteer The best types of adventurers live and feel their experience in another country. However, the volunteer believes in moving forward. They want to go deep into things. It's not just for fun, but for helping with a social and environmental issue. Community improvement is their goal and they want to give their role in bringing about change. The YOLO Traveller You will be under heavy pressure to find a YOLO traveller in the city on weekends. This person works almost always on the road, making the most of user SLs and VLs because they believe in using all their free time to see every inch of the world. They jump everywhere and no opportunity to travel optional itinerary. The Loner Loner is calm while travelling, that is when they do not suddenly disappear and begin to explore themselves. They also have the habit of inviting people on their trips and then going on their own without prior notice. You admire their independence and courage, and they are the best people to get travel tips and advice from. The Feed Goals Friend The Feed Goals traveller has a gift to make places (and their selfies) the envy of everyone - even the people on the same trip! Sure, it becomes annoying when they stop the photo every five minutes, but you can always count on them to capture your journey for future generations, as well as get a great new profile picture for you! The Soul Searcher Soul Searcher is always keen to travel and try new things, so they usually end up becoming the driving force that keeps you and your friends out of town. Apart from spending a lot of time staring out the windows or in the scenery and thinking, you can count on them to find adventures off the beaten track. It's always nice to have a friend that lets you tag his search for himself. Who knows, one of these trips may also find yourself. The Vicarious Adventurer A Vicarious traveller is a friend who always says they travel, but they retreat at the last minute. They are quite satisfied with living on their adventures through Barkada. Maybe not just on the back, or staying in hostels or be a cowboy for the weekend, or maybe they are too busy to make the trip. Whatever the case, the times they manage to achieve are always one for books! Perhaps you will now have a better chance to guess the instincts of your adventurer. If you haven't decided yet, choose and wait for a life full of excitement.

Weird Hotels: 11 wonderful hotel you can stay at around the world

September 08, 2019

In these exotic and weird hotels, travellers do not have to look behind their closed walls for suspense. For the average traveller, the hotel room is just a rest stop, where the real adventure begins once you have left your comfort. But in these stunning hotels - from sea creatures to freezing temperatures - trekkers do not have to look beyond their closed walls for suspense. Check out this list below to find out about the coolest weird hotels around the world.   Capsule Hotel, Japan If you're in a state of extreme fear, choose Capsule Hotel in Japan, it is considered one of the weird hotels in the world. According to its name, this space-saving housing is a heap of glass blocks, measuring 2 million metres by 1.25 metres, with enough space to sleep. Equipped with wireless rooms, TV and shared laundry rooms. Poseidon Undersea Resort, Fiji Poseidon Undersea Resort is located under the sea in the octopus garden in the shade. Built by the President of the US submarines L. Bruce Jones, it was built 40 feet under the clear water of 5000 acres in the form of Lake Fiji. It can be reached by elevator and consists of three types of accommodation - above the ground with a private beach, above the water, and at the bottom of the ocean. If you have thousands of people at night, you are familiar with a fully equipped luxury hotel - spa, bar, restaurant and bootable gym - with panoramic views of the ocean and its creatures, making it one of the world's coolest hotels. The Ice Hotel, Sweden We certainly do not envy the builders of this glacier hotel in Sweden, which they have to rebuild every winter. But we can certainly appreciate the picturesque accommodation, built entirely from tons of ice and ice-covered snow-covered icebergs, and with snowy ice sculptures, an ice bar and ice chandeliers. Although the temperature never drops below 23 degrees Fahrenheit, guests are provided with thermal underwear, hats and sleeping on sleeping bags over a heavy mattress with reindeer skins on a block of ice. Forest Hut Hotel, Sweden Ignoring the comforts of the modern world, the Forest Hut Hotel in Kolarbyn, Sweden, makes it look fun. This hotel offers you a new design for rooms, making it one of the weird hotels around the world. The cottages are located in a farmyard next to Lake Skärsjön, and adopt a simple form of primitive living, with candlelit rooms, shared outdoor dwellings, a lake or creek as an option for bathing, sparkling fire, scenery and aroma and forest sounds to entertain you. The food is self-catering, with the nearest supermarket two miles away by car. Sewage Pipe Hotel, Austria In Ottensheim, Austria, individual sewer pipes - equipped with double beds and waste cleaning - are lined up in a public park. Like the Japanese capsule rooms, the pipe rooms offer a small room to manoeuvre but they have lamps, doors, a power outlet and even a small window. The idea was created by the Austrian artist Andreas Strauss, and since they are sewage pipes, guests can pay what they can afford to support the project. Wild Canopy Reserve, India Wild Canopy Reserve at Mudumalai National Park, Masinagudi, India, shows all childhood treehouses to shame. Two luxurious wooden houses are located 41 metres above ground, with panoramic views of wildlife - elephant, bison and deer - below. Despite the lack of electricity, the suites are fully equipped with a private library, an indoor toilet, running water and even a jacuzzi. The Hobbit Motel, Woodlyn Park, New Zealand Lovers of the Lord of the Rings will hold their breaths. The motel-sized pint-sized barrel rooms are in honour of this small movie located in Waiton, New Zealand. The rooms are built down a hill, which reminds us of Hobbiton, without sacrificing modern amenities. Magic Mountain Hotel, Chile Magic Mountain Hotel is also one of the weird hotels that you might have heard of. This hotel is an architecturally stunning hotel in Chile from all exotic angles and scenic views. The hotel is named after the owner's favourite book, which tells the tale of a mountain that satisfies desires. With a waterfall resembling successive fairy tales from the top of the surface, the surrounding forest and the animals that rise in the sky or rush down, it is hard to believe that magic does not happen here. Harry Potter Hotel, UK Whether you are obsessed with Harry Potter or just a muggle who wants to take a look at the magical world life, the Georgian House, dating back 163 years near Victoria Station, now has rooms that replicate the famous rooms in Hogwarts. The Potter-style rooms are furnished with trunks, cauldrons, potion bottles and spellbooks. In addition to the original Hogwarts experience, the rooms also come with additional extras where a full Harry Potter package is offered to guests. You can get a walking tour of central London landmarks from movies and a trip to Warner Bros. Studio for a Harry Potter making the tour. Manta Resort, Pemba Island, Zanzibar Experience a unique stay in one of the weird hotels, Manta Resort. Manta Resort is a beach villa on a remote island surrounded by pristine water. But you can reserve the Underwater Room and sleep under the roof while colourful coral fish slide through the large windows around your double bed. At night, the lights can be turned under windows to attract fish and octopus. The sea-level floor has a living area and a simple bathroom, and the patio is perfect for sunbathing or lying down in the Milky Way at night. When you do not enjoy your room, get a spa treatment, enjoy a dive or explore the interior of this island full of wildlife and culture. Book and Bed Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan Last but not least weird hotels is Book and Bed Tokyo. It is a sanctuary for book lovers, it was designed like a library of used books, so that guests can open up books and reveal a comfortable corner with a simple bed, reading light and an electrical outlet. Bones Without shame or fear, there are 30 stacked cubes, each large enough for one person, behind shelves filled with 3,000 titles in Japanese and English. Bathrooms are shared and sofas in the area outside the shelves provide a reading area and a common pool. It is more than a hotel.

Ancient Egyptian Sports: Best sports in the Pharaonic civilization

July 28, 2019

Many sports played today, were also played during the ancient Egyptian period. Many illustrations on tomb walls and monuments show that sports such as long jump, wrestling, swimming, archery, athletics, weightlifting, kayaking, fishing and some soccer games were common among ancient Egyptians. Also, many kings and princes of this era had a great interest in attending sports competitions that they funded with equipment. Rules such as choosing a neutral rule, uniforms for players and announcing winners by awarding different medals, are some aspects of ancient Egyptian sports that are very similar to today's sports. Here are some of the ancient Egyptian sports that were played by ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago.   Ancient Egypt sports The scenes on the walls of temples and pyramids clearly show that Egyptians knew how to maintain their physical fitness and health. The sport was an important part of everyday life and culture. Among the most common sports practised by ancient Egyptians are gymnastics, marathon, handball, javelin, boxing, high jump, archery, weightlifting, swimming, rhythmic gymnastics, and balance. What Were Their Favorites? One of the popular ancient Egyptian sports is the javelin sport, which was used for hunting sport for finding food. Archery was another sport of its kind that was a popular way of recreation in Egypt and a popular fishing method. The Archery was often practised by the royal family. Many water sports are popular in Egypt, mainly due to the location of many of the longest river banks on earth, the Nile. Rowing and swimming were among the most common water sports played by Egyptians during this period. Football is a very popular sport in modern Egypt, but the ancient Egyptians also enjoyed a variety of other sports such as tennis, squash and even golf, which were an integral part of the ancient Egyptian sports scene. What The Tomb Scenes Show Ancient Egypt sports Given the many paintings and drawings, it can be said that the ancient Egyptian sports also included a number of ball games. One famous version is the alternative of handball played today. The games were played with balls and bats that were made from palm trees. Ball games seem to have enjoyed both children and adults. It is believed that most of the ancient Egypt sports were active just to enjoy while some seemed to have evolved into a distinct sporting event. These sports were usually watched by royal families for fun and enjoyment. The long marathons were also part of the ancient Egyptian sports scene as illustrated by the texts. It seems that the marathon was an important part of the celebration of the coronation of the pharaohs and kings throughout ancient Egyptian history. Thus we can clearly see that sport in ancient Egypt was very important and formed an integral part of daily life, not only to maintain the fitness of people but also as a means of recreation and entertainment. Hockey Ancient Egyptians played a game similar to the current hockey game. The drawings on the tombs in Bani Hassan in Minia Governorate show the players holding bats made of long branches of palm trees, with a bent end similar to a hockey bat. Hockey was made of compressed papyrus and covered with two pieces of leather in a semicircle. The ball was painted two or more colours. Handball The drawings of this sport were found on the tombs of Saqqara, five thousand years ago. The ball was made of leather and stuffed with vegetable fibres or straw or made from papyrus plants to be light and more durable. It was rarely used for more than one game. The painting shows four girls playing handball. Each team is aiming at the other at the same time. Players can either be on their feet or on the backs of teammates during the exchange of balls. Fishing Fishing was one of the ancient Egyptian sports that has been practised by kings, princes and ordinary people. There are many drawings of fishing scenes such as a hobby on the tombs of Saqqara in the Old Kingdom as far as they are found in the effects of the modern kingdom. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo includes several types of fishing rods and hooks of different shapes, which indicates the progress of this sport in ancient Egypt. Equestrian Sports Equestrian has moved from the world of wars and war vehicles to the world of sport and hunting wildlife. Ancient Egyptians introduced horse racing among young people. They managed to stay on horseback without saddles in full control of the horse, as seen in a picture of an ancient Egyptian knight. Weightlifting Weightlifting was one of the well-known sports of ancient Egyptians. One way of lifting weights is to try lifting a heavy bag of sand with one hand (a clean lift and shiver) and keeping it in a semi-vertical position. The player had to stay in this position for a short time. This is one of the weightlifting rules applied so far. Rowing Kayaking was one of the most demanding sports that require physical strength by the ancient Egyptian. The paintings recorded the collective rowing in which the players relied on matching the rowing according to the directions of their captain who carried the rudder. The leader also controlled their movement by calling for a high standardization methodology to unify the moment when the paddle touched the surface of the water and helped propel the boat forward steadily and quickly - a method still adopted in kayaking at present.

Asian Cuisine: The best 11 Recipes of Asian Food

July 24, 2019

If you have never tried to prepare Asian food at home, get ready for treatment. You can bring the Asian cuisine to your home. Many of the dishes you like from your favourite restaurant are not as difficult to prepare as you think. If you ever enjoy a snack from your favourite fast food and think about it, you can do it, this set of recipes is right for you. These are the dishes we eat most often when we have a passion for eating out, by a big margin: you can make these ingredients with ingredients that are present in your grocery store or even in your own kitchen. When you make it at home, you can adjust spice levels and tailor a meal tailored to your taste. Use these recipes to create a feast for your family, no external menu is required. Try some on your friends and you'll know how easy it is to have your favourites Asian cuisine at home.   Chinese Meat Dumplings (Jiaozi) Jiaozi is a popular dish in Asian cuisine, especially in Dim Sum restaurants and Chinese new year celebrations. This delicious Chinese dumpling is filled with ground pork or beef, cabbage, bamboo shoots, green onion, ginger and garlic. It served as an appetizer, with a refreshing dipping sauce made from soy sauce, vinegar and rice wine. Thai Steamed Dumplings With Dipping Sauce Beef-style pancakes cooked with sliced chicken slices, shiitake mushrooms and Thai flavours. This fabulous dish offers a great light dinner in the summer from the Asian cuisine or an open buffet entree with a built-in dipping sauce. Stir-Fried Sweet Shrimp Stir-Fried Sweet Shrimp is another yummy dish from the Asian cuisine. These fried shrimp are a little sweet, a little spicy and feature all the Vietnamese flavours you like. Make all your ingredients ready before you start to avoid over-cooking the seafood because the shrimp fry up quickly. You can use the properly sized shrimp to make this dish as the main protein or appetizer, or the smaller shrimp to be served on rice or as part of another presentation. Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetables Roasting vegetables on high heat take much less time than many other preparations, resulting in crispy vegetables instead of limescale, grey versions that can often result from boiling or excessive evaporation. This recipe comes with a nice and light sauce that compliments the natural flavour of the vegetables beautifully. Cut all the vegetables into pieces of similar size until they cook as evenly as possible. If you like softer vegetables, cook them for 10 to 20 seconds. Lemongrass Tamarind Chicken The unique blend of lemon and tamarind characterizes this chicken dish, with a sweet and sour flavour that contains the extra fruit flavour of tamarind. The fruit comes fresh, dried and spiced in many Asian markets. If you go to the pasted path, use more fresh or dried to get this firm flavour. Serve on white rice to absorb the sauce. Vietnamese Fried Rice The Chinese influence on Vietnamese cooking is highlighted in this recipe for fried rice. It features lighter flavours of the Chinese type, thanks to lemon juice and fish sauce. Chinese dried fatty sausages and delicious grilled pork give it a piece of meat that can turn this side dish into a main meal.  Sambal Kangkung With Shrimp Paste Kangkung is a semi-aquatic plant with edible leaves and stems. Food stalks take a little longer to mature. The unique vegetables taste great with sambal or chilli sauce. Although there are many types of sambal, this recipe calls for oelek sambal. If you are using sambal with shrimp paste already included, adjust the added amount accordingly. Pomelo and Shrimp Salad Large pomelo fruits can grow up to 10 inches in diameter, but many sellers will sell slices to make them all easier to use before drying. Pouring the grated pulp with lemon juice, ginger, garlic and chilli pepper highlights its sweet flavour. Shrimp works beautifully in this Asian cuisine recipe, but you can also use chicken or squid instead. The dressing improves during sitting, so make it first while preparing the rest of the ingredients. Pandan Rice and Mung Bean Cake Try this colourful Vietnamese answer on the rice pudding to get a unique dessert served in Asian cuisine. Split beans are cooked faster than the whole, so use them if you can find them. Fresh coconut milk contains a richer and deeper flavour than canned ones, but you can use the canned version if necessary. Serve hotcakes or at room temperature, sprinkle with coconut milk and sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds. Vietnamese Beef and Noodle Salad Do not be fooled with the name of this dish. Although it bears the name "salad", it is full of noodles, beef and lots of vegetables to prepare a full meal. Assembled in layers, with rice noodles on the bottom, fresh vegetables and pickled next, then the seasoned beef slices. Finally, take it with fresh herbs, chopped peanuts and fried crisps. The contrasting textures and flavours will make them a new favourite Asian cuisine dish. Vietnamese Spring Rolls Use this practical guide to wrapping and folding Vietnam-style spring rolls for a fun project and a satisfying snack. We respond to nice and small fillings for a uniform fill and get all your supplies ready before you start. It may take a few tries to get this technique right, but you'll need to show all your friends once you've mastered. Serve the final product with a sauce the nuoc Cham.

The blue pearl of Morocco: Explore the blue city of Chefchaouen

July 24, 2019

Welcome to Chefchaouen, the Blue Pearl City of Morocco. Known for all homes and shops painted with different shades of blue. A magical place to get lost in! The sun shines mercilessly, and every colour around you is caught in flames. And since everything is blue, you will feel like you are walking in the mythical Kingdom of Heaven. This fabulous city Located in the north of Morocco, the city's signature colour is a variety of soothing shades of blue that lower blood pressure in seconds. Chefchaouen is also known as the Blue Pearl or the Blue City of Morocco. The buildings are painted with a coating of talcum or chalk that looks worn out. Exploring a maze of narrow blue alleys that smelled of spices, flowers and fresh orange is one of the most important things you will enjoy through your trip to Morocco. Plus it is an incredible place to take pictures. The blue pearl city is a small city in northern Morocco, it has beautiful natural surroundings, rich history and magnificent architecture, but what is famous for it is the bright blue walls of many buildings. Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 and began as a small Maghreb fortress for exiles from Spain, where it gradually welcomed Jews and Christian converts.   Why Is Chefchaouen Blue? Some will tell you that it is a symbol of Jewish solidarity. In the 1930s, numerous Jewish refugees arrived in Chefchaouen, fleeing Nazi persecution and the growing threat of war. Blue is meant to represent peace, security and the power of heaven. In this version of the story, the blue walls spread quickly from the city's Jewish quarter, until the entire city was glowing. Others say that the tradition of painting the walls in blue is Jewish, but it certainly dates back to the founding of the city, in the fifteenth century, when it was built around a castle used to defend the population against the Portuguese invaders. At this time, local Moroccans lived alongside the Jews and the Moriscos (former Muslims who converted to Christianity) for a century or more. Exploring The Blue Pearl City The narrow streets of the blue pearl of Chefchaouen do not try to ease the impact of the hills built on the city. In some cases, stone steps walk straight up the slope, giving your legs a good workout. But when the streets open in the public squares, the views over the city toward the nearby countryside of the countryside look spectacular. The mountains above the blue pearl city give the appearance of the horns and it is believed that this is where the name of Chefchaouen comes from (literally means "watch the horns" in the local dialect). But the rest of the time, keep looking around. This is a beautiful jaw city! It takes you to a different world. The Best Things To Do In the blue pearl This blue pearl small town will give you a unique chance to discover plenty of interesting stories. And here are some of the top places and things that you can do and explore in Chefchaouen city. Get Lost In The Streets of the blue pearl That's why most travellers look for Chefchaouen, aimlessly strolling through the narrow alleys and streets, drawn with an endless collection of blue, turquoise, powder blue, celeste, robins-egg, indigo, cyan, periwinkle. You can shop for blankets or coloured lamps in souks hidden throughout the blue pearl city. Enjoy a variety of beautiful entrances and detailed tile works that adorn every stay. Sit in a cafe on the street, ask for a steaming cup of mint tea, and watch the locals wear robes dressed in everyday life. We all fall into the whole Moroccan experience. Go Cat Spotting If you are a cat lover, then you will love Chefchaouen. It's definitely a cat city like Istanbul. However, local people feed them but generally live abroad in the form of streets. You will find cats in alleys and cats on the stairs and cats in the markets. Cats will be strolling through restaurants and terraces. They hide in trees and shrubs and are on the sidewalks. If you want to attract the cat's attention the blue pearl, try to whisper. It's a great way to get them taking pictures! Meow. Visit The Kasbah Fortress Museum Be sure to visit the 15th century Kasbah Castle which is located in the main square of Chefchaouen - Hammamet Square. It is very easy to find this structure with red walls among all the blue buildings. The Kasbah was built in 1471 by Moulay Ali bin Musa bin Rashid and includes a beautiful garden and a small ethnographic museum. Climb the towers inside for some spectacular views of the city and the Grand Mosque. The Kasbah was built in the Andalusian-Maghreb style to defend Chefchaouen from attacks by Portuguese and Spanish. Spend The Night In A Riad "Riad" is an Arabic word which means "garden", in Morocco it refers to the space in the centre of its traditional guesthouses, which are opened to the sky with a fountain of water. Most of the rooms in Riad refer to the inside of this space, the symbolic heart of the house and when you open your door the first thing in the morning to find the sunlight pouring into the building. Voices of distant Morocco will flow through the hole in the ceiling. You will hear the movement, the morning tea that is being prepared, the Arab call for prayer, and the rhythms of life abroad. Everything is very comfortable.
