Осторожно, двери закрываются! Вчера настроения закрыть Турцию и Тунис были поддержаны в Совете Федерации, а сегодня вообще без комментариев:
"В Думе обсуждают возможность введения выездных виз для граждан России, передает радиостанция «Говорит Москва» заявление зампреда комитета Госдумы по конституционному законодательству и государственному строительству Вадима Соловьева.
Следующей остановки не будет....Collapse )

Вы за закрытие границ ради безопасности граждан?

за (так будет безопасней, отдыхать и путешествовать можно и по России)
7(10.4%)
против (ограничение свободы является нарушением Конституции)

Настало время ежегодной переписи населения в моем блоге и поиска новых интересных журналов в ЖЖ. За прошедший год с момента последней переписи, кто-то ушел, кто-то появился. Активность всего ЖЖ заметно снизилась и я незнаю читаете вы меня или нет. Появились новые интересные журналы, которые по каким то обстоятельствам не попали под прицел моего "объектива". Напишите о себе в комментариях все что считаете нужным, размещайте ссылки на свои лучшие посты, прикрепляйте фотографии, напишите чем занимаетесь и о чем ваш блог. Добавляйтесь в друзья и я отвечу взаимностью! Оставьте весточку что вы еще живы, "неживые" журналы держать не хочется, перед Новым годом собираюсь оставить только все самое интересное.

Блед - воздух, горы и карповый рай для тех кто в теме. [24 Sep 2014|05:10pm]

Озеро Блед расположено в 32 км от аэропорта Любляны, у подножия Юлианских Альп, на высоте 501 м над уровнем моря. Оно подпитывается тёплыми источниками, которые заодно поставляют воду для закрытых бассейнов в отелях. Летом озеро прогревается до +18..+24°C, а зимой замерзает лишь в сильные морозы. Курорт — идеальное место для комфортного семейного отдыха. Здесь роскошная природа в сочетании с интересными памятниками архитектуры и термальными источниками. Купальный сезон начинается в июле и продолжается до начала сентября. Еще до поездки Бледское озеро стало одним их ключевых пунктов в моем маршруте по Словении и мои надежды оправдались полностью, даже несмотря на пасмурную и дождливую погоду.

а теперь прогуляемся вокруг озера пешком...Collapse )

Portraits of West Java Heritage [06 Mar 2011|07:55am]

hadingrh
Anybody had visited to West Java, Indonesia? Let's learn a bit their cultures and traditions. You can also learn more at Bandung tourism

Tradition and Culture


Wayang GolekPrincipally an oral tradition, the people of West Java developed more than 180 forms of artistic expression within 19 clusters, the oldest of these is supposed to be poetry. Traditional epic poems tell of the history and heroes of the people from time immemorial through the Galuh and Pajajaran kingdoms, and continue today. Haji Hasan Mustapa (1852 - 1930) is a giant in the tradition having produced some 10,000 works.

Today the languages of West Java bear an imprint of the oral tradition and remain popular for daily use. They are complex languages attesting to social roles and caste. Puppet plays were often used to transmit both legend and current events and continue to play a role in ceremonial and festive events. West Java is rich also in batik traditions from Tasikmalaya, Garut, Indramayu, and Cirebon.

Traditions handed down the generations mixed with beliefs (nature based and animistic) and religions (Hindu and Islam) formed the culture of the people. Marriages are the joining of families, and socially, most relationships are family-based. Still today a commercial company will refer to itself as a "big family" and seek quasi-familial relationships in day-to-day operations.



Nature and Plantation

With all its active volcanoes, West Java life has always been influenced by the forces of nature, bringing both momentary catastrophe and enduring fertility to the soil. Coastal peoples depend on the richness of the seas and the rhythms of nature form the core identity and very prosperity of West Java.

Colonial power organized the inherent riches with formal cultivation and institutions, providing great wealth for Europe. Plantations crops include tea, coffee, quinine, rubber, copra, sugar, cocoa, and coconut.

Village and City

Traditionally, geography and land use precluded large concentrations of people in the mountainous areas of West Java, but ports on the coasts bustled with trade and business. Villages remain today the most numerous settlements, but cities have burgeoned with population and economic shifts.

Village structures are made with materials at hand: bamboo, rattan, wood, grass, and rock and bonded together through the centuries as stylized and elegant constructions, and organization. Surrounding these villages are the rice paddies and vegetable farms that dictate the local economy.

Cities developed with industrialization and the western imprint is clear. West Java's strategic location and comparatively more comfortable climate made it a target of leisure and academic activities under colonial rule. The capitol, Bandung, was planned to become the capitol of the colony, and bears witness to its 1930's heyday in elegant streetscapes and outstanding architecture.

Yorke Peninsula [07 Dec 2009|12:51am]

longlongwaytogo
Thinking of going to the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia? You might want to watch my blog and see what I'm talking about. I've only made one so far but I intend to write more about my trip around it last week. I'll be talking about what I learnt, where I stayed, what I liked and didn't like, what the issues where, what was fantastic!

Can you believe it's been three months since Christmas?

The decorations are stashed away, the kids are begging for new batteries for their toys, and the Christmas day gifts have now become part of your every day household items. We head towards Easter, with Christmas becoming just a faded memory.

Don't you wish there was some way to keep Christmas with you throughout the year AND be sure you'll be ready for it when December rolls around? Guess what, there is! From the bottom of my heart, I can recommend the Chrisco Christmas hamper club...



Chrisco hampers offer you all the food, accessories and gifts you could possibly need. With a little bit of planning, you can spend the year paying off supplies little by little. You will hardly notice that the money has gone each week, but come Christmas time, it will all add up to a wonderful hamper of Christmas goods being delievered to your house. The sooner you order and start paying, the smaller your weekly/fortnightly/mothly (whatever suits you best) payments will be.

The full range of hamper choices can be viewed online, or you can request a catalogue by calling 1800 830 830.

It may sound like a well-worn advertising slogan, but never a truer word was spoken than when they say you really can save for a magical Christmas with Chrisco.

I am not a troll, nor do I make any profit from posting this. I simply believe in this program, and think you will too if you give it a go. This is not spam.

[ mood | calm ]

So....

I have been traveling for the past 6 months i would have to say. It started when i left Ohio to move to Cali. and i was living in California for almost a year. My boyfriend asked em if I wanted to go to England with him and I said of course cause I have always wanted to go. Well when that moment came around to go I didn't get into London- Heathrowe. So, came back to America and started in Vermont and been traveling across country back to San Diego in a van with my boyfriend. Now, we are back in California and are really thinking about going " down under " and just backpack around. Not really sure where to start...http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e298/Crazy_Hendricks/IMG_4754.jpg

Study Abroad - Australia! [06 Oct 2008|11:06am]

alifay
Hello!

I am writing to ask for information, please. I am an American looking to travel to Australia for a semester in Spring 2009. I am currently trying to pick just where to go!

I would love it if any of you would share your favorite places, information about Universities, or where you would live in Australia if you could live anywhere.

I am a Hospitality major, with an emphasis in event planning, if that helps!

Thank you so much!

Melbourne [07 Sep 2008|07:59pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Hey everyone! 

I'm a 24-year-old female (currently living in Perth, but originally from Canada) who's going to Melbourne for 4 nights next week by myself.  I've looked a bit into things to do there, but I'm wondering what people hear would recommend?  I'm pretty open to seeing or doing anything! 

As well, my flight gets into Melbourne late at night, around 11:30pm.  So I'm looking for a hostel that will definitely allow check-in that late.  As well, if you know of any that have a shuttle from the airport late at night, that'd be super!

Thanks a lot in advance :)

Environmental friendly [21 Feb 2008|10:51pm]

elia85
THE Spanish people are known to being environment-friendly thus when you happen to be in a beach here in Costa blanca spain, always follow simple policies so you can maximize your enjoyment here. A typical costa blanca alicante beach always has lifeguards and very accommodating staff who will help you around should you need directions and assistance. But at the same time, they will courteously remind you not to throw your trash anywhere. Beaches here actually compete with each other because they usually have a quarterly competition on which is the cleanest beach in Spain. That scheme alone can make a tourist want to stay longer here.

I am planning a trip to Australia and am really interested in visiting Uluru/Ayers Rock.

For those of you who have been, I want to hear all about it!

Where did you stay? How much did it cost?
How did you get there? How much did it cost, how long did it take?
Did you do a tour/package/group thing?
What did you do?
What did you think of it? Was it what you expected? Better/worse?

And I would love to see any photos that you took there!

Hello all.

My friend and I are planning a trip to Australia for our first visit, and I was wondering if any of you could give me some insight on where we should visit.
I thought I'd ask here instead of some travel site, because we want a REAL Australian experience...not some tourist attractions. 

Thanks so much.

amybrown584
I need help! Im trying to work out a roughish plan of what to do when over in Australia. I know the likelihood of me sticking to the plan is hardly anything but i need it in order to get myself on the plane :-)

Im gonna be starting in Sydney then i wanna travel and move to somewhere to work for a bit...but i dont know where to work! I wanna be by the sea so i can surf and scuba dive and im not a big fan of big cities. Any suggestions?? Ive been recommended Brisbane but i think thats too big.

Cheers :-)
