  • Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood believes that if his side had kept hold of Gareth Bale they would be fighting for the Premier Le

    • From: JohnDean
    • Description:

      The Welsh wizard became the world’s most expensive player after Real Madrid snapped him up from Spurs in an eye-watering £86m deal last year on the back of an impressive campaign. predator lz sambaBale was English football’s top performer last term, with his 26 goals in all competitions almost enough to cap a positive season at White Hart Lane with Champions League qualification. After a summer of transfer uncertainty Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy eventually accepted Real’s offer for the 24-year-old, replacing him with a series of stars from across Europe in a £110m spend. Few of these big buys have settled well, and Sherwood – who replaced Andre Villas-Boas over the winter – has been unable to keep the Londoners in the battle for Champions League qualification. adidas samba 2014 Bale netted a dramatic late winner in the Copa de Rey final against Barcelona in midweek, and the now Spurs coach feels that if the club still had him they would be battling for English football’s top prize: “We saw what he did last year: 21 goals and nine assists. He scored the winner in eight games.” He is quoted by Sky Sports. “We could do with that now, by the way. If you put those points that he accumulated for us on top of what we have got we would probably be challenging for the title.” internationaevencourage Sherwood then went on to lament the loss of Luka Modric a few seasons ago – the Croatian now also plays for Real: “The two best players on the pitch (in the Copa del Rey final) were Gareth Bale and Luka Modric and that says everything.” come from http://www.footballfancast.com/

  • The Sky train trip in Bangkok The Sky train trip in Bangkok

    • From: flyaustralia
    • Description:

      The Sky train trip in Bangkok is really cheap, safe as well as is not much difficult. In fact you can pick this up as your mode of transport while being there if you really want to save your time from getting stuck in an enormous traffic jam.

       

      Sky train in Bangkok can also help you take a look around and figure out some of the good hotels, in short it is faster and easy to get around the city and reach close to the place you desire to. It is even better than a motor ride, another interesting fact about it is, if you ask about it to the people out there no doubt that they’ll give you a silly stare, not because they don’t wish to answer your query but, they will just not understand what you are asking for, Sky train in Bangkok is termed as BTS, so ensure that you ask for BTS instead of Sky train if you really want them to answer you appropriately.

  • Three reasons why Japan's Izu Three reasons why Japan's Izu Peninsula is the perfect budget getaway

    • From: ataylor0307
    • Description:

      Tokyo in the summertime is surprisingly humid, for a non-tropical region. If you plan to go outside, even to make a dash from your hotel to the train station, in the name of all that is holy don’t leave without a rag or you’ll regret it. Nothing says summer fun like blinking the burning sweat out of your eyes.

      Don’t worry, relief can be found not north, but just a couple hours west, on the Izu Peninsula. If you’re in the Tokyo area, I highly recommend taking a detour there for a couple of days. It’s still hot, but not as humid, and the sea is only a few steps away. In fact one of my best memories of living as an expat in Japan is packing up and taking over a beautiful, Japanese style hostel in the area with a group of friends.

      K’s House Ito OnsenK's House Ito Onsen

      K’s house is a popular hostel chain in Japan. I’ve been to a few, but none have left their mark on me like the one in Ito. Though modern, the interior retains a traditional Japanese aesthetic. Rooms floored in tatami are hidden away by sliding paper screens. A path of cool, smooth stones leads to the kitchen and common room. And best of all, the hostel has its own public and private onsen (hot springs). There’s nothing like taking a long soak in the hot spring after a day at the beach. The feeling of water just this side of boiling on my aching muscles is bliss, and I always come out feeling like putty. The next stop is the common room, which has a big sliding door opening onto a terrace, a peaceful view of the river right below the hostel, and green hills in the distance. Sitting out there after the hot spring, with the sound of the crickets and the breeze on my still steaming skin, is the closest I’ve ever gotten to Zen.

      This place gives the impression of staying at a traditional and expensive Japanese Inn at less than half the price: about $30 USD for a bed in the dorm, or up to $60 USD for a private room ensuite room.

      Shirahama BeachShirahama Beach

      Shirahama beach in Shimoda is a little bit of a journey from Ito, but worth the trip. Besides, the view from the train is gorgeous, and the ride will cost you around $15 USD one way. About an hour long train ride beside lush, green mountains, palm-tree lined roads and sparkling blue sea leads to Izukyu Shimoda station, on the Izukyu line.  From there the bus, which is about $3.50 USD, goes straight to the beach. There’s also a grocery store five minutes’ walk from the station, perfect for getting cheap snacks.   

      Shirahama beach is popular, and it’s easy to see why. In summer the water is warm and clear, with soft rolling waves. The sky is a luminous blue not marred, but enhanced by the white clouds trailing across it. The scenery is as beautiful as any beach in the Caribbean, but at the edge of the beach is a slight cliff. A rocky path leads to the summit and there sits a Shinto shrine, fronted by a red torii, or gate, which stands aloof and proud as if to say, remember, this is Japan.

      Ito Eats

      Within 10 minutes’ walk of the station is a shopping arcade with a few restaurants, including some Izakaya—traditional Japanese restaurants serving many appetizers and cocktails. Izu, so close to the sea, has some of the freshest and tastiest sushi and sashimi you’ll eat in all Japan. It melts in your mouth, and the restaurants in the area serve it up with delicious miso soup, fluffy rice and pickled vegetables. There are also a variety of other foods. The most daring of us tried basashi—raw horse meat. I really like the fried crocodile. Dinner and drinks is no more than $30 USD a person, and often much less, making Ito, and a stay at K’s Hostel, one of my favorite budget getaways.

  • Top 10 picturesque lakes in Ti Top 10 picturesque lakes in Tibet

    • From: tibettravel
    • Description:

      Almost every tourist traveling to Tibet would drop a visit to a holy lake in Tibet. The most frequently visited lakes in Tibet are the top three holy lakes, Namtso, Yamdrok and Manasarovar. In fact, there are thousands of lakes across the Tibetan Plateau. The following is a list of the top 10 picturesque lakes in Tibet.

       

      1. Lake Namtso

       

      Namtso, meaning a "heavenly lake" in the Tibetan language, is reputed as the most beautiful lake in Tibet and was selected as one of the five most beautiful lakes in China by Chinese National Geography magazine in 2005. It is situated between Damxung County and Bange County, 240 km away from Lhasa, capital of Tibet. The lake, covering an area of 1,940 sq km, lies at an altitude of 4,718 meters. It is the largest salt water lake in Tibet and the second largest salt water lake in China. Its purity and solemnness are symbols of Qinghai-Tibet Platean. Its touching beauty should not be missed by any visitor who makes a Tibet tour.

       

      2. Lake Yamdrok

       

      Located on the way from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp or Kathmandu, Yamdrok is also frequently visited by travelers. Lake Yamdrok is surrounded by numerous snow-capped mountains and has a power station at its western end which is considered to be the highest in the world. The lake is fan-shaped, and is around 72 km (45 miles) long. In Tibetan Yamdrok means "the Lake of Swans". Tourists and pilgrims can be seen walking or prostrating themselves along the lake's perimeter. On a steep mountain slope southwest of the lake lies Samding Monastery, which is the only Tibetan Monastery headed by a living female Lama.

       

      3. Lake Tangra Yumtso

       

      Lake Tangra Yumtso, the largest holy lake worshipped by ancient Bonpo of Tibetan Buddhism, is the third largest lake in Tibet. It is located in Xainza County, Nagqu Prefecture, northern Tibet. Lying at an average altitude of 4,600 meters, the lake covers an area of 1,400 sq km, with 70 km in length and 20 km in width.

       

      4. Pangong Tso

       

      Pangong Tso, meaning "long, narrow, enchanted lake" in Tibetan language, is an endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km (83 mi) long and extends from India to Tibet. 60% of the length of the lake lies in Tibet. The lake is 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its broadest point. All together it covers 604 km2. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water.

       

      5. Lake Manasarovar

       

       

      Manasarovar, meaning "an invincible lake of jade" in the Tibetan language, is one of the highest fresh water lakes in the world.

Chiu Gompa, 30 km south of Darchen, is a good starting point for a circuit around the lake. It is a must-visit for a tour in Tibet covering western Tibet.

       

      6. Basumtso

       

      Basumtso in Tibetan language means 'green water'. The lake definitely deserves that name: the views are breathtaking, and those glaciers, which cover on the upper reaches of the lake, are beautiful and at the same provide fresh water for the whole region. The lake covers an area of 26 square kilometers. You can see the beautiful snow-capped peaks reflected from the green waters of the lake. The beautiful view of the lake and the glaciers even makes some European visitors think of the inspiring Swiss Alps when they see the majestic view on the shoreline of this lake. Standing by the lake side, you can see fish shoaling in the water, birds circling in the air and beasts roaming in the forest. You can find a harmonious scene of animals living a comfortable and easy life in Basum with human. The World Tourism Organization listed the lake as a world tourist site.

       

      7. Selincuo

The natural sights here are absolutely breathtaking and after sunset the deep blue waters melt into one with the shadows of looming mountains, creating an air of mystery and intrigue.

       

      8. Lake Rakshastal

       

      Lake Rakshastal lies close to the west of Lake Manasarovar and Mount Kailash. The Satluj River originates at Rakshastaal's northwestern tip.

The name of the lake literally means "lake of the demon" in Sanskirt. It is also known as Ravana Tal, as it is considered to be the place of severe penance tapasya by Ravana, demon-like egoistic King of Lanka in Hindu theology. In Buddhism, Lake Manasarovar, which is round like the sun, and Rakshastal, shaped as a crescent, are respectively regarded as 'brightness' and 'darkness'. Its salty water, a stark contrast to the fresh water of Lake Manasarovar, produces no aquatic plants or fish and is considered poisonous by locals.

       

      9. Cuona Lake

       

      Covering an area of over 400 square kilometers, Cuona Lake is regarded as the highest freshwater lake in the world. Cuona Lake means 'Heavenly Lake' to the locals. Numerous believers often come all the way to worship this holy lake. The water here is crystal clear with fish jumping freely. Together with the boundless plains and clear sky, the scenery surrounding Cuona Lake are of great beauty, attracting cranes, mandarin ducks, swans and other wild animals. Around the lake is the famous Qiangtang Nature Reserve where Tibetan yak, donkey, snow leopard and so on live.

      Peiku-tso is located 40km to the east of Jirong county town and 250km from the Tingri County. It's just on the way to Ngari, between Zhangmu and Saga. With the elavation of 4,590 meters above sea level, Peiku-tso lake is the biggest lake in Shigatse area. It's a light salty lake with an area of more than 300 square kilometers.

  • Exploring Budapest: Day 1 Exploring Budapest: Day 1

    • From: lavenderdays
    • Description:

      Flying all the way from Los Angeles, my mom and I arrived in Budapest at 9 in the morning - fun.  After making our way to the hotel, we ended up passing out for a good 3 hours on the extremely comfortable beds in our room.

      Miraculously, we were able to wake up and force ourselves to go outside and explore, despite the major jet lag. About 10 seconds after stepping outside, the blue sky quickly vanished and it started pouring so we ran into a cafe close to the hotel and hid out there for a good hour. 

      I was eager to try some Hungarian food so I ordered goulash soup which was really delicious. I’m no food expert so I’m not quite sure if there are several different kinds of goulash but mine had beef, potatoes, carrots, and onions in it. I’d definitely recomend trying it if you’re ever in Hungary! Unfortunately, I only ate goulash once while I was there because the rest of the week was extremely hot and who the hell wants to eat soup when it’s 90 degrees out?

      The rain stopped after an hour and sunshine returned so we decided to walk around the city a bit to get an idea of where everything is. We walked long the Danube River, passed the gorgeous Parliament building, and ended up around St. Stephen’s Basilica which is surrounded by beautiful shops and cafes. 

      Jet lag got the best of us again and we ended up returning to the hotel and falling asleep by 8:30. Yeah. Party animals.
