Keeping Fit Whilst Travelling

Many of us spend huge amounts of time staying in shape. We spend hours in the gym, running on the track or swimming in pools. Yet when we go on a much needed holiday all this falls to pieces, and most people do nothing to stay in shape – this will undo all your hard work, especially if you are embarking on a long trip.

You need to be proactive to prevent this from happening while you are travelling. The easiest way to do this is by going for regular runs – this works particularly well if you are at a beach-side spot as there’s nothing quite as serene as a gentle run down the beach. This is best done in the evening as otherwise you will be tortured by the heat and the crowds will get in the way. You can also keep your eyes peeled for gyms in your hotel or resort – many people are similarly focused on staying in shape and hoteliers have responded by building simple yet effective fitness facilities.

Not all exercise needs to be quite as intensive as running and you can stay in shape just by being generally active. This

Travelling To Lanzarote – Food And Drink Guide

Lanzarote has hundreds of bars and restaurants, ranging from family-friendly cafes, to Canarian seafood restaurants, to authentic Thai and Indian restaurants.

Lanzarote cuisine revolves around meat such as goat, chicken and beef, most commonly. However, seafood is also widespread – the coastal village of El Golfo is renowned for its fish restaurants. Vegetarian cuisine is largely restricted to European restaurants in the larger towns, but you’ll find tortillas and wrinkled potatoes – the island speciality – everywhere. The local wine, Malvasia, is extremely good, and widely served.

Many people book holidays to Lanzarote’s largest resort, Puerto del Carmen, because of its “Britishness.” This isn’t really the place to come for traditional tapas bars, although the Canarian restaurant of La Tegala is widely considered to be the best on the island. You’ll find some good British restaurants, as well as cosy coffee shops and karaoke pubs. Casa Siam, the island’s only Thai restaurant, serves authentic curries and locally caught fish.

The island’s most famous inhabitant was the artist Cesar Monrique and the El Diablo Restaurant, at Timanfaya National Park, was one of his designs, and serves barbeques over the vent of a volcano! Another great place to dine is the Manrique-designed Casa-Museo Al Campesino,

Heart Of Darkness – Narrative Ambiguity And Imperialist Anxieties

Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is a novel preoccupied with the concept of ’empire’. It also has a rather problematic relationship with the realist aesthetic which was the predominant nineteenth-century literary mode. This article aims to place Conrad’s novel within an imperialist context, assessing some on the underlying fears, for example hidden facets from the individual psyche, which, to a varying degree, appear to have informed its narrative. The article also considers genre issues and narrative framework, revealing some from the literary influences and stylistic techniques which characterize the novel.

Perhaps one with the greatest changes to fiction from the late nineteenth-century was the emergence of narrative ambiguity. This is apparent in Heart of Darkness with the outcome of Marlow’s quest for Kurtz being anticlimactic and ambiguous.

In terms of genre, Conrad’s novel could be regarded as adopting particular Gothic techniques. Perhaps most notable of these being the exotic settings: the Congo and African jungle. Whereas inside late eighteenth-century, Southern Europe was regarded as an alien and exotic region by most English readers, by the following century, the nation’s literary gaze had shifted to Africa – the ‘dark continent’.
