Today we take countless pictures of our travels. Thanks to digital cameras that have allowed us to point and shoot. Thanks to the memory cards that can store thousands of images as we hop from one destination to another. If you love traveling and taking pictures of the metropolis you are exploring, here are some photography tips for you:
Give attention to details
Most of us try to get a panorama of the urban jungle. You really do not have to do this all the time especially when you do not have the right equipment or the right location to shoot from. Instead, pay attention to details. You can feature a lot of details from door knobs, to road signs, murals, among others. You can pick smaller details to focus on the shape and the texture of an object.
Take pictures of the city at night
How about a cruise and a music festival rolled into one? This might actually come true before 2012 ends as organizers of the Coachella music festival is bringing the sounds aboard Celebrity Silhouette.
The cruise will be different when you have acts like Sleigh Bells, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, Hot Chip, James Murphy, and Pulp on stage while you cut the waves to your destination. This is set to happen this December.
The cruise line is following the lead of Weezer that offered a similar performance for the passengers of the Carnival Destiny. R Kelly will also perform on the same ship heading to the Caribbean this year.
Celebrity will call its 1,000-foot cruise ship as the SS Coachella for this music festival cruise. The cruise will be able to accommodate about 3,000 music lovers. The company described the ship as perfect for the event with its theater and cabana-style alcoves.
Alaska has a very rugged environment and the best way to experience its best offerings is on a cruise. You can combine the roadways on this state and it will not even cover half the stretch of its coastlines. From the waters, you can have a different perspective of the landscapes, or you can watch bears trying to catch salmons, or simply be amazed with the glaciers.
The cruise lines cater to the different Alaska travel adventures of your liking. Here are some of the best of Alaska cruises you can find:
It may be among the least developed places in the globe but your wallet will complain when you travel to Papua New Guinea. Those who may know will really disagree with the title of this article. A lot of people will say budget travel in PNG does not exist.
The tourism infrastructure in this country is next to nothing and as a result only those who are willing to spend a lot. Budget travel though is possible now. Here are some tips on how you can save some money when you visit Papua New Guinea:
Skip the hotel and stay in a village home
Most of the hotels in this place cater to government travelers and the business folks. You will not find a roadside inn here which does not charge below $35. If you are on a really tight budget, you can sacrifice a bit of convenience and comfort and stay for free with a local family.
The world of travel and architecture has evolved through the ages. We have dreamt of finding cities under the oceans for ages but who would have thought that we will be building structures underwater that offer amazing experiences. Here are some of the most fascinating underwater hotels around the globe:
Jule’s Undersea Lodge
This underwater accommodation is located in Key Largo Florida. This originally served as an underwater laboratory back in the 70s. In fact, the experience is so unique that you have scuba dive for more than 20ft from the surface to get into the hotel. You need to get that deep to see the entrance to this underwater hotel.
Each room has a round window that allows guests to look out into the deep. Of course, expect fish and other creatures of the sea to stare back at you. It is common to see angelfish, barracuda, snappers, and parrotfish since the hotel is built in their natural habitat.
At the time of this writing, the Petco Park might be an area of chaos as thrill seekers and running buffs try to outplay and outrun zombies for The Walking Dead Escape. It is an obstacle course that has been setup in connection with the Com-Con happening in the city.
The first zombie apocalypse survival run happens tonight but there will also be zombie runs between 1pm and 9pm on July 13 and between 11am and 6pm on July 14.
If you want to join you can buy tickets at the park for $75. In case you just want to watch from the sidelines, you can get the tickets for $15.
Unfortunately, you cannot buy tickets to play as a zombie since the tickets were sold out in a wink. These zombie fanatics shelled out $149 but this came with costumes and makeup from the creative team behind the show, The Walking Dead.
Puerto Rico has a new hotel in its San Juan. The Olive Boutique Hotel recently opened its doors to welcome guests in its lively Condado shopping district location.
The new Puerto Rico hotel is just a small one and only offers fifteen luxury rooms. The hotel is divided into sections – France, Italy, Spain, and Morocco– honoring the places where the owners loved to travel.
The unique designs represent the experiences of the owners. You can see a century old wooden furniture and even their personal photographs around the hotel. Some luxe details include spa showers with an all glass surround and bath products by L’Occitane. Modern-day touches for the tech craving guests are answered by video-phone tablets featuring nice websites and of course plasma TVs.
The size of the rooms vary. There are petite chambers fit for solo travelers. There are large suites covering 247 square feet. This fall, the hotel will also have a lap pool on the rooftop, bar, and Jacuzzi.
These towns on this list might be nice travel destinations. Honestly, I have not been to any of them but surely their names make a lot of people smile.
According to recent surveys, the hotels in Wank have the highest rates of single occupancy.
We got a feeling that unwanted pregnancies are not a major concern in this corner of France.
The folks here just are in dire need to go.
Bendova in the Czech Republic
The people here will just do anything to please anyone.
A highly recommended destination for those seeking higher learning.
This is your midpoint on your way to Shitterton.
