These gadgets won’t let you down even whether it’s a rainy or foggy day and you’re shooting old buildings, or it’s a sunny summer day and you’re shooting at the beach, or covering an aquatic event. They’re certainly a bang for your buck.


World’s most fascinating elevators

It is hard to describe or to explain the fascination exerted agains us people, by the elevators. I am sure that, for a jungle or countryside raise child, the elevators are by far the most interesting and fascinating thing in a big city.

In my opinion, there is a strange similarity between elevators and caves. Many people are O.K. in an elevator even due to this similarity, while other people are deadly  frightened by both, elevators and caves. Another important issue are the sexual fantasies that everyone had in an elevator. Most of the people have even fulfilled for real these fantasies. In the most unusual situations (e.g. hostel sex) the elevator is the safest and most exciting place for having sex. Unfortunately, you must avoid the peak hours and the outdoor glass elevators.

Top 4 waterfalls

A waterfall is usually a geological formation resulting from water, often in the form of a stream, flowing over an erosion-resistant rock formation that forms a sudden break in elevation or nickpoint.

Some waterfalls form in mountain environments where the erosive water force is high and stream courses may be subject to sudden and catastrophic change. In such cases, the waterfall may not be the end product of many years of water action over a region, but rather the result of relatively sudden geological processes such as landslides, faults or volcanic action.

Waterfalls may also be artificial, and they are sometimes created as garden and landscape ornaments. See below some of the most interesting waterfalls of the world.

1. Angel Fall, Venezuela, world’s biggest waterfall! 973 metres fall.

Understand

Angel Falls or Salto Ángel is the world’s highestwaterfall, dropping a total of 978m from the summit of the Auyan Tepuy, and with an 807m uninterrupted drop.

History

In 1937 pilot Jimmy Angel landed on the Auyan Tepuy in search of gold. Unfortunately his plane got stuck and he wasn’t able to take off. After 11 days he made it to Kamarata. His plane was later recovered and can be seen in front of the airport at Ciudad Bolivar.


Take Travel Photos on the Go with the Samsung TL220

Samsung-DualView

The Samsung TL220 with 12.2 megapixels shoots pictures clearly – no matter where you are in the world. For years now it has been every traveler’s dilemma to want to take pictures of yourself at a location – but no one to take it. So they settle for crappy self shot pictures and go on their merry way. The new Samsung camera changes that though, with an innovative mini screen on the front of the camera.

While this sounds like a novelty toy, this camera is no joke. It has image stabilization so all of your pictures come out clear and detailed, even if you are shaking in excitement and running to your next attraction. Other benefits include a lithium ion battery that can be easily recharged. Plus you can always buy extra just in case your battery dies at an important moment.


Winter Travel Tips: What to do when you are stranded on the road

Aside from making your list and buying gifts, travelling during the holidays can get quite stressful. If you are travelling by land, the last thing that you want to happen is your vehicle breaking down in the middle of nowhere. Here are some useful tips to keep you safe on the road or help you out if ever you get stranded:

Proper car maintenance

Before a long journey, check your tires, brakes, and exhaust. Better yet, bring your vehicle to a service station and they can prep up your car for the winter. Mechanics will change the oil, replace the rubber of your wipers, check the levels of the coolant, and check the tires. It will also be wise to fill up your gas tank to keep the moisture from clogging up gas lines.

Travel Wisdom: Some words that can get you in trouble

You may be feeling like like your sponge next to the kitchen sink, trying to absorb all the new words for the new language your are trying to learn. All praises to you for the effort and for being open minded.

Learning a language is like going through a cultural immersion or more aptly termed, adventure. You need to be brave enough to pronounce the new words and it can be quite a danger especially for beginners.

Here are some words that you might want to know. They are pretty much innocent for one language and spells trouble if you are in another country:

  • Bimbo – In Italian, this simply refers to a baby. Try using it in English and say “hey, bimbo!” and you will not be getting a giggly reaction but a slap on a face since it means a sexually liberated girl in English.
