Supposing, just supposing , you are in Berlin for  a short time. You are a fan of marine life, or you simply are very fond of it, and you would like to see an aquarium. My suggestion is not to try finding an aquarium, if is any in that city. You simply have to go to the Radisson Hotel and take the elevator. It is a glass elevator, moving inside another glass cylinder,which is actually the aquarium. It is really quiet and peacefull in that elevator, zou will be impressed. It is the worlds biggest aquarium, where many marine plants and animals found their natural habitat. Some proffesional divers to the cleaning every day.

One of the most difficult things to figure out when you’re traveling is whether to tip a waiter or not. Below is a basic guideline of how much to tip while you’re globetrotting. Say goodbye to awkward moments in foreign restaurants and bars. Now, you can dodge scowling waiters because you won’t have to tip too little on trips again.

Canada and the United States

When you’re in the US or in Canada, it’s considered rude not to leave a tip for the waiters. This is especially true in the USA where the customer’s gratuity is considered part of a waiter’s wage. You’d be looked down on if you leave less than 15% of your tab. Word even has it that the stakes have been raised today. The new tipping norm is now 17% to 20% of your bill’s total.

In hundreds of places scattered all around the world, archaeologists have studied rock art that were left behind by our ancestors. These ancient images chiseled and imprinted on rocks depict different scenes that give us an idea on how our ancestors saw the world hundreds of years ago, before there were buildings and roads, and super cars with high-powered engines.

Some of these images or pictures, if you will, show animals such as birds and lizards, or groups of people in action; and date back to about 700 years. Some rocks display images of Christian crosses, that are presumed to have been made by colonists who came all the way from Spain, probably during the early 16th century. And yet there are even older types of rock art that are believed to have been made 3,000 years ago.
