Volcanic Ash Cloud Could Hamper Travel to South Africa this June

More than 20,000 football fans are expected to travel to South Africa for the worlds premier football event this June. There is however widespread concern that the recent volcanic ash cloud that affected air travel worldwide could lead to further flight delays or trip cancellations.

EPIRB’s

An EPIRB (or an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) is a device that enables anyone that is travelling on the sea to be safe, wherever they are. What the EPIRB does it alerts the Search and Rescue Authorities if the boat or any crew member is in danger and needs to be rescued for any reason. An EPIRB is fitted to a boat and is registered to the boat (unlike a PLB which is registered to the owner). An EPIRB can either be manually activated, usually by pulling a switch or pressing a button, or it can be automatically activated, this happens whenever the device comes into contact with enough water. If the EPIRB is going to be manually activated, then there is usually a guard or a tab which needs to be removed before activating, this is to stop an EPIRB being accidentally activated. When it is automatically activated, the device has a knife which cuts the cord keeping the EPIRB in the housing, allowing it to freely float on the water.

EPIRBS can be fitted into any type of boat but they are required by law to have one on all commercial boats such as passenger boats, cargo

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

Anita Desai, short listed three times for the Booker Prize and honoured by the Padam Shri for her literary forte, is one of the literary luminaries of the contemporary Indian fiction writing in English and a prolific post colonial writer who like Virginia Woolf deals with the psychology of mind and goes deep into the heart of her characters to expose their inner feelings and dig out the hidden questions that spring at the core of their heart and ,thus, she appears travelling with the modernist sensibilities of T.S.

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,
