  • Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Cup 2014

    • From: TrippinTammy
    • Description:

      FIFA Brazil ExcitementNothing more exciting is scheduled for this summer than FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Sports fans the world over will be making their way to Brazil for the international men's football (soccer to those in the United States!) tournament that is scheduled from June 12 to July 13, 2014. 

      World Cup has a long history; this year marks the 20th FIFA World Cup, with the first World Cup being in Argentina in 1930. It has been held every four years since then, with the exception of 1942 and 1946 due to World War II. In other words, World Cup is on par with the Olympics. 

      FIFA stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association, which oversees the sport. The tournament consists of 32 teams competing at venues within the host nation; this is the World Cup Finals and is the culmination of the previous three years of play and qualification. Currently, the champion is Spain. They won the tournament in South Africa in 2010 and are favored to win.  

      This is just the second time that Brazil was chosen to host the competition. FIFA chose Brazil after deciding that the tournament should be in South America. The last time the tournament was held in South America was in Argentina in 1978; the last time in Brazil was 1950. 

      There will be 64 matches played in twelve cities across Brazil in new or totally renewed stadiums. These matches will include all of the world champion teams since the World Cup began in 1930---Italy, Germany, Uruguay, England, France, Argentina, Spain and Brazil. 

      Brazil has a storied World Cup history as well, with five championships and once fielding the most well-known football player worldwide to ever play the game--Pele, who made 77 goals in just 92 appearances, Brazil's all-time leading scorer, who made a name for himself by making the winning game against its country's rival Argentina at the age of 16. Maracana stadium

      Awesome way to spend a week, or a whole month, in Brazil! My plans are to spend a week in Brazil seeing some of the sights, and I have already scored some tickets for myself and my brother and will be in the stands for the Spain vs. the Netherlands match on June 13 in Salvador! 

      I also got a great tip about transportation from a friend of mine who has spend lots of time in Brazil going to conferences. She said the taxi drivers sometimes scam tourists and it was safer to set up transfers online with Brazil Airport Transfers. She even said her plane was hours late and the driver was still waiting for her with a sign. That sounds like great service!

  • My Typical Oxford My Typical Oxford

    • From: rschoeff
    • Description:

      My concept of Oxford is a place of immense architectural beauty, a college town with plenty of young people and new ideas, mixed in a large dab of practicality. This photo of a wonderful old doorway, a new door, and the most practical mode of regular transporation in Oxford remind me of my impressions every time. It's just a great place to walk around in and gawk at the buildings and other structures. It's alive with young people. And yet is just such a practical place. I hope to visit again.

    • From: European Waterways
    • Description:

       

      European Waterways has officially launched its 2012 hotel barge cruising season with a colorful new brochure that features the newest addition to its fleet, the 12-passenger Panache, and their newest on-board amenities. Europe’s largest and most distinguished luxury hotel barge cruising company, European Waterways’ vessels cruise in France, Italy, Scotland, England, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.

      “With the largest fleet of hotel barges cruising Europe’s picturesque canals, rivers, and lagoons, we offer sophisticated travelers the widest choice of destinations and experiences,” said Derek Banks, Managing Director of European Waterways.  “We have been in business since 1974 and are recognized as the first choice for luxury hotel barge vacations.  Our discerning passengers look forward to escaping the crowded cities and immersing themselves in the scenery, history and relaxed lifestyle of Europe’s beautiful countryside – all while sampling some of the best local and regional wines and enjoying superb cuisine expertly prepared by our on-board master chefs.”

      Every all-inclusive six-night cruise features escorted excursions to nearby historic and cultural attractions, gourmet lunches and dinners onboard, plus meals at select fine dining establishments, an open bar stocked with top quality wines and spirits, the use of all outdoor barge amenities such as bicycles and spa pool, and local transfers to/from the barges upon arrival and departure.

      New this year is the “Barging and Biking” option, for the more adventurous passengers. This complementary option provides clearly marked maps with suggested routes, backpacks containing a hearty boxed lunch, and everything else the bikers might need to explore the surrounding countryside and charming villages along the way.  Some barges also carry tandem bicycles, offering another romantic way for couples to enjoy their relaxing barge cruise.  In addition to booking cabins on scheduled cruises, an entire vessel can be chartered for family events, as well as by groups of friends or members of clubs or associations. The charter cruise itineraries can be customized for family-oriented activities, wine appreciation, walking and hiking, golf, and other interests.

      “All the favorite vessels and cruises are back, from Burgundy to the Scottish Highlands, from the River Thames to the lagoons of Venice,” said Banks.  “Our 2012 season is already shaping up to be one of our strongest yet.  With special pricing on select Spring cruises, it’s an even better reason to enjoy this unforgettable experience, and take advantage of the great value, that is a European Waterway’s hotel barge cruise vacation.”
