Manda Bay Resort - Manda Island- Kenya’s Best Kept Secret

Manda Bay Resort is a petite lavish private hotel tucked away on the exclusive Manda Island in northern Kenya's Lamu archipelago.

This is the ultimate ‘get away from it all’ secluded comfort if you are looking to recharge, be pampered and self-indulged.

Manda Bay Resort is made up of 16 roomy Swahili chalets with huge wooden beds, huge walk-in mosquito nets and plush en-suite bathrooms.

5 of these chalets are situated on sand dunes while the rest are on the ocean front.

These quiet cottages are placed amid bowed coconut palms, acacia trees and tamarind trees whispering gently in the breeze.

All rooms are open to the elements of nature in that they overlook the sandy beaches, the cool sea breeze wafts into them and a clear view of the ocean is visible.

Also visible from Manda is the Island of Lamu in the distance, Shela village and dhows serenely gliding past.

The island prides itself in creating the rustic ‘Robinson Crusoe experience’ and visitors can mingle with the local Swahili people and learn a few things about their culture.

Cars are not available on both Lamu (the oldest town in east Africa) and Manda, only donkeys and boats, both an experience in themselves.

As a result the pace of life is inevitably leisurely and relaxed...

The Glaciated Allegheny Plateaus in the northeast, well known for their coal mining legacy, give way to busy waters of the Erie.

Machu Picchu - The Inca Trail And Other Trek Routes

Machu Picchu: The Inca Trail is undoubtedly Peru's most popular trekking route.

Recommended for the physical fit only, it runs for more than 40km and reaches 4,200 m.a.s.l. at its highest point, the Warmiwañuska or Dead Woman's Pass.

The stone-paved trail, discovered in 1960 and part of the more than 23,000 km of roads built by the Incas across South America, crosses a remarkable range of natural landscapes and eco systems, from thick tropical jungle to the bear, unwelcoming rocks of the Andean mountains.

All in all it's probably the most beautiful walk in South America.

The Trail takes three to four days of tough hiking, and can be commenced at Chillca (Kilometre 76 of the Cusco-Machu Picchu railway) or, most frequently, at Qorihuayrachina, Kilometre 88 of the railway.

The first day is relatively easy, and includes along the route the Inca ruins of Cusichaca, Q'ente, Pulpituyoc, and Llaqtapata, a site used for crop production remained well preserved.

The second day is the hardest of all, mainly because the ascent becomes increasingly steep.

The trail follows original Inca stonework that climbs uphill, ending just short of the actual Warmiwañuska or Dead Woman's pass, at 4,200 m.a.s.l.

The crossing of the pass opens day three, after camping in the Pacaymayo valley. From here it’s downhill...

Rome - Places To See And Stay In The Eternal City

Roma, Eterna Cita (Engl. Rome, Eternal City)! The capital of Italy is located on the rivers Aniene and Tiber, close to the Mediterranean Sea.

With a population of almost 4.3 millions (2016), it is the largest city in the country.

Rome is also the country's largest and most populated comune and fourth-most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits.

The Vatican City is an independent country geographically located within the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason Rome has been often defined as capital of two states.

The Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo, is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy.

Built of concrete and sand, it is the largest amphitheatre ever built.

The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum.

Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in AD 72, and was completed in AD 80 under his successor and heir Titus.

Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96).

These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius)...

Egypt - Nile Cruise In the Footpath Of The Pharaohs

Egypt is where history first emerged. It is here that we have the first pictographic record of events and persons. Hieroglyphics, the system of writing used by ancient Egyptians can be traced back to about 3200 BC. At about 3180 BC, the nations of Upper and Lower Egypt were brought under the rule of a single king titled Pharaoh.

The first Pharaoh is thought to have been Menes, who set his capital at Memphis, 22 km south of Giza in today's Cairo. The Pharaohs established the systems that brought forth the highly successful Egyptian civilization.

The history of Ancient Egypt lasted for about 3,000 years.

Ancient Egypt declined, was overrun and thereafter ruled by foreign powers. The Greeks and Romans who ruled after the decline were aware of the great similarity between their own gods and those of the Egyptians.

They not only tolerated Egyptian religion, but also expanded existing temples and dedicated new ones to existing cults.

Some of the new overlords, Alexander the Great for example, styled themselves as divine priest-kings in imitation of the Pharaohs.

Emperor Theodosius, who reigned after Christianity became the state religion in Rome, extinguished the last remnants of the living culture.

The Egyptians worshipped hundreds of gods - a great offense against the monotheistic religions; whose first article of faith is that there is only one God. Theodosius decreed in AD 391 that all pagan temples in the Roman Empire be closed.

The Arabs, who brought Islam to Egypt in 640 AD, also had no time for deities such as Anubis the jackal, Horus the falcon god or even Amon the king of the gods.

Ancient Egypt was dead for one thousand five hundred years, until the French came across the Rosetta Stone in the nineteenth century invasion of Egypt by Napoleon. This priceless discovery was inscribed in both Greek and Egyptian, and it was the key that allowed the deciphering of Hieroglyphics by Jean-Francois Champollion in 1822.

The voluminous literature produced by Ancient Egyptians was now accessible to curious scholars. This rekindled great interest in Ancient Egypt in the West that remains undiminished to this day.

Religion is the common theme running through the attractions of ancient Egypt...

In the middle of the Arboretum sits the four acre Baldwin Lake which has been used in filming numerous movies and television shows.

"Johnny Weissmuller swam in LASCA Lagoon/Baldwin Lake for three decades as Tarzan and later Jungle Jim.

A local news story reported that he, in fact, set an unrecorded Olympic swim record when a cage of crocodiles was accidentally opened during filming (Weissmuller beat the crocs to the lake shore).

Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour took up a month-long watery Baldwin Lake residence in homes on stilts for the filming of Road to Singapore in 1939, the same year the Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.,/Madeleine Carroll film Safari managed to sink a paddle wheel boat in the same lake.

Undaunted, television's original "Fantasy Island" lowered a pontoon plane by helicopter onto Baldwin Lake and propelled it across the water to disembark visitors to Mr. Roark's island paradise.

For Alex Haley's "Roots II", Baldwin Lake became Kunta Kinte's river home in Africa."

Germany - Alpirsbach Monastery Medieval Sandstone Island

Germany : Attracting multitudes of tourists every year, Europe promises the ancient, the diverse, and the completely fascinating.

Most travelers scurry past the major sites and cram in as much as possible in order to get through a list of 'must sees.

Unfortunately, much is overlooked due to lack of time and money while the infinite unique treasures sometimes hidden for the resourceful traveler remain undiscovered and unappreciated.

Not that visits to the key attractions should be dissuaded! On the contrary, I'm simply inviting the European travelers to dig a little deeper into their destination country and find the gems that will make them smile as they recall them even decades later.

Remember and celebrate the taste of a fresh German pretzel, the sweet smell of the air in a Tuscan vineyard, or the baby soft petals in a colorful field of Dutch tulips.

Savour an entire spectrum of sensory bliss as you skip from one country to the next, searching for that tiny unique detail that you will fondly relish for the rest of your life.

Nestled in the Northern Black Forest, Alpirsbach Monastery echoes with the souls that once worshipped within its walls.

While clinging to a forgotten time with a white-knuckled grip, the monastery boasts a 900-year history beautifully kept intact while the world outside changed and modernized.

Founded in 1095, the Benedictine monastery easily humbles the proud and quiets the boisterous.

Upon entering its doors with the massive brass lion doorknockers, it's evident that this is a sanctuary of sanctuaries.

The red sandstone beams warm tones during the day and leaps to an almost blinding glow as the sun begins to set...

Festival And Feast - A Comprehensive Explanation

The terms festival and feast,usually,but not always,involves eating,drinking or both,in relation with a specific kind of rite.

It might be passage, death, sacrificial rites, seasonal or commemorative observances, and rites celebrating the ending of fast periods.

Fasting, the opposite of feasting, has often been affiliated with purification rites.

It can also be described as preparatory discipline for the celebration of feasts and rites.

Festivals often include not only feasting,but also dramatic dancing, athletic events, carnivals and revelries at times.

Throughout the history of human culture, certain days or periods of time have been set aside to commemorate, ritually celebrate, re-enact, or anticipate events.

The anticipated events might be changing of seasons, agricultural, religious, or sociocultural.

This gives meaning and cohesiveness to an individual and to his religious, political, or socioeconomic community.

Because such days or periods generally originated in religious celebrations or ritual commemorations, they usually tend to include sacred community meals, referred to as feasts or festivals...

Costa Rica - Points Of Interests And Travel Guide

Costa Rica literally translates into "Rich Coast," so named by Columbus for the gold necklaces worn by the native people when he arrived in the early 16th century.

However misleading the name might have been for gold hunters, it appropriately describes Costa Rica's copious coastline, which is an endless paradise for surfers, scuba divers and those in need of tranquil relaxation.

Costa Rica is also a bastion of political tranquility, which has historically marked the country as an attractive destination for Central and South American travelers.

Not a single gun-shot was fired when Costa Rica earned its independence from the Spanish Empire in 1821.

Democratic development progressed after independence and in 1949 Costa Rica become the first country in the world to abolish its army, setting a historic precedent for other democratic nations in the region.

Spider Monkey Around
