The Most Romantic Sunsets in the World

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Many people will agree that a beautiful sunset is a good way to end the day. The dreamy quality it produces when it swathes everything in an amber glow is enough to make you swoon over your partner. However, as most of us know, though there is only one sun, the ambience and the surroundings must be taken into consideration. The real romantics have searched the world over just to find the right setting.

Naturally, a good view, meaning a clear, unobstructed one, is on top of the list. A wide expanse where the sun is directly over a sea or desert may be ideal to some, while other prefer the contrasts offered by a landscape of mountains, temples, or even buildings, which can highlight the setting of the sun. Even climate plays a role, as warmer places can bring out the best glow, and a shower prior to sunset will cleanse the skies of dust that can lessen the vividness of the colors.
Wherever you go, even if you don’t get a chance to see an amazing view of the sunset right away, the best part is that you can always try again the next day.

Part of what defines a getaway is the freedom from responsibility. A new place, some refreshing faces and warm bodies, no reservations. Cutting away the puppet strings from the people we have to answer to and the paperwork on our desks is what a vacation should be.

Believe it or not hotels have the most chill places to lounge or bump and grind the night away. There are the infinity pools, rooftop bars selling the most knockout drinks, the restaurants and hotel-based clubs which only allow A-listers to go through and not to mention the grand rooms which can house concerts or large events. In this list we have compiled the best places to get down for a wild night.

Whale-watching seems to be an enjoyable leisure time nowadays. The biggest mammal in the sea has provided entertainment for these watchers on their past time.

San Diego

There are different ways to catch and see whales up close in San Diego. You can go to Seaworld and see Shamu. If you enjoy the sea, you can also go there and catch Gargantuan Gray whales.

Another option is to ride a boat and be closer to them. You can also visit Cabrillo National Monument set in the city. You can go whale watching in Cabrillo by land. It is more than 400 feet above sea level. It has an observatory made out of glass to better appreciate the sea world.

Best spots for stunning city views

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

A spectacular city view from atop a building is something that appeals to most people. In hotels, the room with a view commands a higher rate and yet they still attract the attention of lots of travelers. Perhaps man’s fascination with an aerial view of a city is brought about by one of the key aspects of life here on this planet: gravity.

We’re perpetually anchored to the earth, and that means being used to seeing cities from the ground up. Turn your gaze to the left or the right and you’ll see walls, buildings, trees, and other structures. But when you’re hundreds of meters off the ground, suddenly it seems that the whole world has opened up. Before you is a sprawling city, without borders, and only endless stretches of land and water as far as the eye can see. Sometimes, the view really can take your breath away.

Video: Top Ten Roller-coasters in the World

Tags: , , , , ,

The best and exhilarating events people experience in life are those that pit them against danger. This is the secret behind the allure of roller-coasters and our insensible desire to continually ride their cars and bite the bullet as the we are treated to the rushes, pulls and close calls lain across the track.

Since the first structured rollercoasters sped across their tracks in 1919 by John Miller, the thrill ride has gone on through various transformations throughout the last century. Now a theme park is not considered one until it builds one of these juggernauts. In fact, theme parks outdo each other in this aspect by designing ones that are faster and that simulate more dangers than their rivals. In this article we feature the top ten rollercoasters in the world. Enjoy the videos!

Top 7 of the Oddest Prisons in the World

Tags: , , , , , ,

While we don’t suppose you’ll be taking a tour around these odd prisons anytime soon, a glimpse of them makes for a fun read. Below are the seven strangest rehabilitation/prison camps you’ll find in the world.

Top 1: Bolivia’s San Pedro Prison

This prison doesn’t look like a prison at all. It’s really more of a community or a small town which keeps criminals from mingling with the rest of society, but which doesn’t isolate them in a gray concrete barren hole with bars. Here, prisoners will have to work (either selling groceries or making something useful) if they want a roof over their heads.

The point is to let prisoners learn to make their lives useful by letting them earn their own cells. At the end of their stay, they might actually miss the community. Hopefully, they don’t try to commit another felony just because they’re homesick.
