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

    • From: TrippinTammy

      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!

  • Great 3 day trip through Halon Great 3 day trip through Halong Bay!

    • From: indochinasails

      Coppy right Blogger BertBo 
      Amsterdam , The  Netherlands 


      We had booked a 3 day trip through  Halong   Bay  with Indochina Sails  on board of their Indochina Sails 1 or 2 and we stayed in two  Superior  rooms. A good mid size boat with in total 15 cabins. 
        filename-sam-2148-1-jpg
      It was GREAT ! Luxury boat , excellent service, nice cabins, great program, fine sun deck with deck chairs, cool lounge, sunny clear weather and above all the stunning beauty of  Halong   Bay . 
        
      Halong   Bay  is actually quite a risky location as is is often foggy and it is known for its rainy days. Well, that is just a matter of 'luck'. In all kinds of weather  Halong   Bay  has a certain magic, and when sailing through you sort of expect a dragon to appear any time..... 
        
      The first day soon we arrived at  Luon   Cave  after an excellent lunch. We explored the area in a sea kayak; great fun and good opportunity to be active. 
        
      Stay on the sun deck having an early afternoon drink and enjoy the stunning sunset in Halong Bay.

      Getting up early the second day we started with a lesson Tai Chi. Quite an exercise as it was already 30+ Celsius at 7 am. We loved it and being home in the  Netherlands  again my wife and I just started a full course.

      During this second day we explored much more of Halong bay using a 'day boat'. I had no idea what a day boat was supposed to be and had imagined a tender or other kind of small motor boat. On the contrary: it proofed to be a mid size fully equipped ship with a nice cool lounge, beautiful sun deck and full staff. And that for about 12 people. Not bad at all. 
        
      kayaking to explore Halong bay Caves
      During this day we really went into  Halong   Bay  visiting a remote floating village, doing some kayaking, visiting a  Pearl  farm, doing some swimming and all being surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. You did not know what to photograph first or last. I would not want to have missed this second day as it opened up Halong Bay  to us. 
       The third day we visited  Surprise   Cave . I usually am not so much into caves, if you have seen one of them you have seen all of them, but I have to admit that  Surprise   Cave  was something special. The size alone is unbelievable and the beautiful rock formations are stunning. 

      This 3 day cruise with Indochina Sails was for sure of of the highlights of out trip through  Vietnam . Perfectly organized and the crew had not lost its personal attention to detail even having done this trip XXX times over. You will regret doing the 2 day only cruise as you miss the most beautiful parts of  Halong  Bay  and all the fun exploring it.

  • Elmina Castle Elmina Castle

    • From: bdinphoenix
    • Description:

      Elmina Castle was built by Portugal in 1491 as a trading post for what was supposed to be a gold trading venture on Africa's west coast.  It quickly turned into a trade in human beings, with Africans going to the Americas and goods from the Americas going to Europe.  Through the years Elmina was owned not only by the Portugese but the Netherlands, Danish, and British.  After the slave trade was outlawed by England in the early 1800s it stood as sentinel against European intruders trying to wrest it from the British. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site and a place that must be visited by anyone wishing to know the history of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, for it all began here.

      While browsing through the flower market in Amsterdam last winter, I happened along this row of wooden shoes. I really, really wanted to take a pair home as a souvenir,unfortunately riding on budget airlines reduces the size of luggage we can take and their simply was no room. Perhaps next time!

      I enjoyed seeing all the bicycles in Amsterdam! But it wasn't only the old fashioned ones I kept noticing. I loved this little scooter parked outside of a yarn shop at the end of a bridge in a neighborhood I stumbled upon. It was so quintessentially Europe!
