The People The people of Angola are steadfast. Angolans have a very deep understanding of patience, and sidestep blaming the difficulties the country faces on the fact that there was war. In reality, Angolans act as if there was no war despite the fact it is deep rooted in every Angolan. The heart and soul of every Angolan is music, it can be heard anywhere and there is always a good excuse for a party. The country has a eclectic range of music, chiefly Kuduro, Kizomba, Semba, and Tarrachinha, the latter being more sensual than all the others. Angolans in all , is safe to say are fun and loving people with a thirst for more of what life has to offer.
Etymology The name Angola derives from the Portuguese colonial name Reino de Angola (Kingdom of Angola), mentioned as early as 1571 in Dias de Novais's charter. The toponym was derived by the Portuguese from the title ngola held by the kings of Ndongo. Ndongo was a kingdom in the highlands, between the Rivers of Kwanza and Lukala, nominally tributary to the king of Kongo but which was seeking greater independence during the 16th century. Angola is the world's twenty-third largest country. It is comparable in size to Mali, or twice the size of France or Texas.

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

Travel Japan: For such a tiny total landmass, Japan has left an undeniable stamp on human history. If you are considering Japan as a destination, here is an overview of the country.
An Overview of Japan for Travelers
Extending along the eastern coast of Asia, Japan is a country consisting of a collection of islands. The mainland, as we think of it, is the island of Honshu. There are three other large islands, Hokkaido, Shikoku, and Kyushu, and roughly 3,000 much smaller islands comprising what we call Japan.
Put together, the total land mass is slightly smaller than California. The geography throughout the islands is mountainous, best exemplified by Mt. Fuji at 12,385 feet. As you might expect, the island country is inherently volcanic, and as such Japan experiences earthquakes fairly frequently, some on a large scale.
Japan is an extremely urbanized country with most people living in major cities. The two prominent religions are Shintoism and Buddhism. The belief systems are harmonious and often share the same temples.
Per legend, Japan was founded by Emperor Jimmu around 600 BC. The current emperor is a descendant of the first. The first interaction with the West was in 1542 when a lost Portuguese ship landed in Japan. Over the next century more Westerners came, but they were not trusted.
The Japan shoguns eventually banned all foreigners and the country was isolated for over 200 years. Not until 1854 did Japan open its doors to the world under the Convention of Kanagawa with the United States.
Once this occurred, Japan quickly evolved from a feudal state to a more modern approach. World War I was a boon for Japan. Fighting on the side of the victorious Allies, Japan gained new respect as an economic and military power following the defeat of the Axis...
Cornwall has always been a favorite holiday destination and its dramatic coastline, picturesque villages, vibrant culture and sumptuous cuisine.
For those visitors who have traveled to the region, the benefits of a Cornish holiday need no explaining, but for our international friends, who have yet to explore outside of London, a visit to Cornwall will give you a very different taste of English life.
In this article, we describe one of the most beautiful walks in Cornwall and thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
Parts of the walk between St Agnes and the Jericho Valley have been trodden so often by countless boots.
It's a favourite stretch of coastal path for its spectacular views across the turquoise waters to the huge stretch of beach at Penhale; the ever-present tang of salt hanging in the air; the dramatic cliffs bordered with a mosaic of gorse, heather and thrift; plus it conveniently links with the beach, the pub and a great seaside restaurant.
St Agnes was once a busy center of mining activity, the relics of which are dotted all around this walk.
Today it is still a very community-minded village with a friendly population boosted during the summer by the visitors attracted by the village's charming unspoilt character, its beautiful coastline and popular beach.
The village is well equipped for walkers, with some beautiful, quintessentially English cottages and hotels and some superb restaurants which take advantage of Cornwall’s fantastic local produce...
Balearic Islands: The islands have been inhabited since prehistoric times, around 5000 BC, and there are many Cyclopean remains. These show the communities constructed dwellings of stone. There is evidence of primitive agriculture including the keeping of domesticated animals. Jewelery, pottery and tools appear to have been manufactured. Later they were frequently visited by Phoenician traders.
In 654 BC the Carthaginians founded what is today Ibiza city. Roman occupation followed and they were in turn evicted by the Visigoths. The Moors invaded the islands during the 8th century and there is still evidence of their 300 year occupation to be found in the islands architecture and the customs of the islanders themselves. Christians reconquered the islands during the 13th century.Mallorca falling first in 1229, followed by Ibiza six years later.Menorca was the last to fall in 1287.
Initially the islands flourished as Catalan colonies but famines and raids by pirates encouraged by isolation from the mainland saw the Balearic Islands decline. Mallorca and Ibiza were occupied by the Bourbons following the conclusion of the Spanish War of Succession in 1715. Menorca however was ceded to the British under the treaty of Utrecht along with Gibraltar on the Spanish mainland.
British rule over Menorca continued until 1802. In the Spanish Civil War, 1936-39, Mallorca and Ibiza were soon under the control of Franco's forces enabling the Italian fleet to use Mallorca as it's base and offer support to the insurgents...

The unique visual theme park, aptly named Parc du Futuroscope, spans over 130 acres of land devoted to entertaining, and inadvertently educating, the millions of tourists that visit each year. Built five miles north to the city of Poitiers, in France, Futuroscope was opened to public in 1987 and the park celebrates 30 years of its existence in 2017.
With new exciting attractions added to the park’s already impressive range of visual themes, tourists are bound to have an enjoyable day when they visit.Being a French theme park, most of the attractions are in French but those unable to understand the language are catered through infrared translation headsets which are provided for free if you leave your ID at the desk as a guarantee. There are, however, some attractions that can only be enjoyed in French; one is The Forest of Dreams, which, in fact, is a laser show so being in French only is not a problem, as dreams are understandable in all languages alike.
The attractions use visual and audio affects to make you a part of the scene; the powerful hydraulic jacks used in The Race for Atlantis take you through the lost city at a high speed and you are sucked into the experience with the dome shaped screen around you, producing a 3D world that is made even more believable with the use of liquid crystal glasses that give the feel of an enchanting underwater setting.That is just one attraction though, Futuroscope holds at least 20 mind boggling, yet glorious shows that give you the sensation of movement while you experience different worlds, whether it is your Peril on Akryls or the story of the Dance with Robots, you will leave the ride feeling you’ve lived the sensations without having left your seat.
The educational side of Futuroscope not only aims at entertaining but also gives us a greater insight into lives we have not experienced and creates empathy as well. A Journey into the Dark is one such attraction that lets you briefly live the life of the visually impaired who concentrate more on the other senses than visual, to gather a sense of direction...

It's not without justification for the local aborigines, who call this rock Uluru, probably a family name, is worshipped as a sacred place.

These main islands are Niihau, Kauai , Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui, and Hawaii. The island Hawaii is the largest, and is sometimes called the "Big Island" or "Big Isle". This phenomenon created Hawaii’s famous black sand beaches and the rich soil from which springs the islands lush vegetation. The climate of Hawaii is one more reason why these islands remain a popular vacation destination.
