At the same time at Heathrow moved 16 million people, but the British airport remains the busiest in Europe. Last year the picture was reverse as the full year of Heathrow, which remained the first airport in the world for decades, attracted 66.7 million passengers, exceeding 813,000 in Dubai.

In third place came last year the Hong Kong airport, the fourth place is owned by Charles de Gaulle in Paris and the fifth airport is the one in Singapore. In Dubai, however, approximately 50% of the passenger traffic of passengers who choose flights with Emirates, face the strategy of the airline which is the use of large aircrafts, which combine passenger audience for Europe and USA. Dubai itself has relatively few passengers that visit. The superiority of the emirate’s airport is not exhausted, however, the numbers. The luxurious terminal which is dedicated solely to the national air carrier, Emirates, has an area of ​​1,713,000 sq.m. and is the second largest building in the world.

The Joys of Melbourne

0

Although the landmarks of Sydney; the Opera House, Harbour Bridge etc., appear on most Australian postcards, it is surprisingly not the city to visit, should you be planning on venturing Down Under. The city that you should travel to, is Melbourne and if you can only go to one Australian city, then it should definitely be the bustling metropolis of Australia’s ‘Second City’.

Established on August 30, 1835, Melbourne has come a long way since John Batman and John Pascoe Fawkner agreed to share the territory. What was once a village is now a city of 4,347,955 people; second only to Sydney in regards to population – largely thanks to mass exponential growth following the gold rush of 1851. The former tented village that was built upon the embankments of the River Yarra is now the most liveable city in the entire world – a position it has held for the past four years. In the recent Economist Intelligence Unit report, the city was handed perfect scores of 100 in education, healthcare, infrastructure and in the sub-category of sport.

So what makes Melbourne such a great city?

Sport

As you may have guessed by the perfect score, Melbourne is a city that is absolutely loves sport. In 2006, 2008 and 2010 the Victoria state capital was proclaimed the “World’s Ultimate Sports City”. Before we go onto the actual sports in Melbourne take a deep breath.

Aussie Rules is the most popular sport in Australia. The game itself originated from Melbourne, in 1858 and before the Aussie Football League (AFL) was founded in 1990, the game was exclusive to Victorian territory – namely Melbourne. As a result of the sport having its roots in Melbourne, the city has an absurdly large amount of teams, nine to be precise. In a league made up of 18 teams it is crazy to think that half of them can come from just one city. The fact that a city can sustain nine teams pays testament to Melbourne’s sporting appetite.

Believe it or not, Melbourne was not too interested in either format of rugby. In 1997 the Melbourne Storm were founded and within two years they had won the Australian Rugby League title. They won it again in 2012 and Betfair have them as one of the favourites for success in 2014 – at a price of 3/10 to advance from the Telstra Premiership Qualifying Finals when they face the Canterbury Bulldogs on Sunday. In Rugby Union, the city has the Melbourne Rebels.

The definitive sporting landmark of the city is without question the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), which at 100,024 is the largest cricket ground in the world, not to mention the 13th largest stadium in the world. The MCG is referred to as the “Spiritual Home of Australian Sport” and is included on the Australian National Heritage List. This gargantuan stadium plays host the world-famous Boxing Day Test in the Ashes Series between Australia and England in the cricket. It hosts the final of the AFL, Australian football matches, the Rugby League State of Origin match and was the stadia used for the 1958 Olympics. The MCG is so much more than a cricket stadium, it is a sporting institution, its Australia’s home.

Melbourne represents Australia on the international stage with the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit used in Formula One and Melbourne Park hosting the Australian Open in tennis. Now these sporting events are not small by any means: the Australian GP is the curtain raiser for the F1 season while the Australian Open is one of just four Grand Slam tournaments in tennis.

There are two football teams: Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City, the latter is owned by the same family that own Manchester City and due to this new found financial clout they have been able to acquire Spain’s all-time record scorer, David Villa.

And just because they were feeling greedy; Melbourne natives are very much into their open air swimming.

Few cities in the world are so intertwined and synonymous with sport like Melbourne is. The city has premier sporting events from practically every popular sport on the planet. It literally appeases nearly every sporting desire, and that for one, makes it absolutely brilliant.

Culture

Those have little interest in sport usually get their kicks out of literature, music or film and well guess what? Melbourne is a world leader in the arts as well!

Let us start with film. The city plays host to the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Melbourne Underground Film Festival. Both of these festivals are in the right place as the first ever feature films were made in Melbourne, while the city was also the location of the world’s first religious epic, the 1900 Soldier’s of the Cross. The city has given the cinematic world Cate Blanchett, Rachel Griffiths, Olivia Newton-John, Eric Bana, Guy Pearce and Geoffrey Rush – making it very much Australia’s Los Angeles.

Performing arts in Melbourne are in the abundance. The Australian Ballet Company is based in Melbourne, while the National Theatre in the St. Kilda suburb is the oldest ballet school Down Under. In 1853, the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic was formed; not only is it the oldest of its type in Australia, it is also the only to be bestowed “Royal” status. The Philharmonic was also the home of the first orchestra in Australia. You may be slightly sick of the term ‘oldest’ by now, but – as stated – the city has a plethora of performing arts and also plays host to the oldest art gallery in Australia. There are more theatres and performing venues in Melbourne than anywhere else. Melbourne comedy is renowned, while the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the third largest in the world and is considered to be one of the international centres of comedy.

The city was the second in the world to be awarded as a UNESCO City of Literature.

Musically, it has given us Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Jason Donovan, Crowded House and John Farnham. A Music Victoria study found that on a typical Saturday night in Melbourne, 97,000 patrons attend a live music venue to see as many as 900 musicians and 740 DJs perform in their respective locations. The music scene in Melbourne is worth more than $1bn per annum to the Australian government.

There is such a dynamic culture in Melbourne, one that is considered separate from the rest of Australia. Of course, there is some influence from Australian culture but more often than not Melbourne is culturally ahead of the rest of the country and they are playing catch up. No city in Australia can stand up to Melbourne when comparing culture.

Landmarks

The aforementioned MCG is one of the cities biggest landmarks, as to the previously mentioned National Gallery.

Sydney Opera House gets a lot of attention but the Arts Centre in Melbourne is just as much of an architectural triumph, with fabricated steel sprouting off in all directions and looking simply magnificent when lit up in the evening. On the other end of the performing arts spectrum you have the Princess Theatre. Opened in 1857, the theatre is a vision of grandeur and Victorian class; in a city that has rapidly modernized this theatre still manages to hold its own in aesthetics.

Do people enjoy going to the train station: probably not. However, if you are a less-than-frequent visitor to Melbourne, the chances are that you will love going to Flinders Street Station. Like the Princess Theatre it is an old-timey construction, complete with a dome and sweeping arches.

Then there is the other side of Melbourne; the part that looks forward. This is never more evident than with Federation Square. The public space very much fits the modernist mantra that makes up half of Melbourne. The paving is unique whilst the sandstone facades on the building are both innovative and breath-taking.

There are numerous other landmarks in Melbourne; practically everywhere you turn there is a particular building that is the oldest of its kind.

The beauty of Melbourne is that it has managed to assimilate modern architecture into a city with so much revered landmarks. The stark contrast from modern to old is seamless and feels natural. Few places in the world – let alone Australia – can have such a transition.

Even better than the city are the locals. Australians, especially Victorians, love a joke and the atmosphere in Melbourne is jovial at the worst of times. So if you were thinking of vacating, backpacking or relocating, give Melbourne some serious consideration, because it really is one of the best cities on the planet.

The city of Miami has a fairly mild climate: many days with sunshine and a generally warm climate. The city is located by the Atlantic Ocean, and the sea water provides high levels of humidity. Even in summer, the sea breeze can be refreshing. In summer, between June and September, temperatures range from 25 to 30 degrees with few variations, it is a very constant temperature. In winter, the environment and the climate in general continues to be quite mild, with average temperatures between 13 and 25 degrees. It is important to know that Miami has a rainy season that runs from May to October and a dry season that runs from November to March. The coldest month of the year is January and the hottest month is July.

What’s the best time to travel to Miami?

It’s hard to tell when it’s the best time of year to travel to Miami. The “when” depends on the activities you want to do there and we know that not everyone travels for the same reasons. However, taking into consideration the climatology and peaks of tourist seasons, the best time of year to travel to Miami is February to May. At the end of February the temperatures begin to increase, although they remain relatively smooth. Also, during spring, the rains are less frequent and will prevent the hurricane season.

If what you want to do during your vacation is to enjoy the beach to the fullest and have lovely summer holidays to Florida, it is advisable to plan your trip in May or June. If you do it during July or August, be prepared to live on embarrassing days (and maybe some day with rain). The best way to beat the heat will be bathing frequently, either in the ocean or in the hotel pool.

If your main goal is to visit the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando, it would be best to do it at the beginning of the year (January and February). During the first two months of the year the weather is quite good for outdoor activities and the influx of tourists is lower. As it is low season, you will find lower prices and better deals on accommodation.

Traveling to Miami on Christmas is a fantastic choice, the weather is pretty good during the winter and you will find lots of shops, outlets and shopping malls where to do the holiday shopping. In addition, Black Friday represents the bullet of the entire shopping season and it is possible to get real bargains and discounts during that day. Black Friday takes place every year on the last Friday of November and only lasts 24 hours.

Now that you know the best time of year to travel to Miami according to the destination for the trip, you’re ready to plan your trip. If you already have the date for your trip, you can know in advance the temperature and the weather that you will find in Miami. It is ideal to decide what type of clothes to carry in your luggage.

Many people think of traveling as the only real cure which can make everything right, and if you’re one of them, too – welcome to the club! However, a lot of them actually tend to relax too much, which often includes indulging in tons of unhealthy (yet so delicious!) food, alcoholic drinks, and being completely lazy. No matter how attractive this may sound, the fact is that staying healthy while on the road requires a lot of effort and discipline. If you want to learn how to make that happen, just keep on reading – here are three amazing tips, so check them out and accomplish that like a true pro!

Make sure you eat as healthy as you can

Yes, we know that exploring exotic destinations usually means exploring that particular country’s cuisine as well, and we often get lost in all those delicious desserts and signature dishes that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. No matter how attractive that may sound, the truth is that you shouldn’t indulge in such foods if you want to stay healthy while on the road. Eating a lot of fresh fruits and veggies should be your top priority, and you can get them either at the local market or in a grocery store near your hotel/hostel. You can also prepare your own simple meals if there’s a kitchen available. Of course, tasty foods that aren’t particularly healthy are pretty much unavoidable – just be sure you eat healthy before and after such a meal, and you’ll minimize the overall damage!

Don’t forget to stay hydrated

Apart from eating properly, you should also give your best to stay hydrated while traveling, especially if there’s a long flight included. Proper hydration gets even more important if you’re about to take a summer trip since exposure to the sun and sweating a lot can contribute to severe dehydration if you don’t drink enough water. Carrying a reusable bottle with you is always a good idea, and you can always upgrade your water-drinking habit by incorporating marine collagen into your everyday routine. It can rejuvenate your skin by reducing wrinkles and fine lines and strengthening your hair, nails, and bones while keeping you hydrated at the same time. Besides that, you should take it easy on drinking alcohol, too. Alcoholic drinks are full of sugar and empty calories and they can result in weight gain, disrupted sleep, and puffiness under the eyes, so be sure you stay away from them as much as possible.

Embrace the art of travel yoga

Staying healthy while traveling isn’t just about eating the right foods and staying hydrated while on the road – it’s also about being physically active, which can be a particularly tricky and challenging part of your trip. Of course, you simply can’t expect to have your regular intense workouts in your favorite gym, but there are definitely ways to stay fit while far from home.

Yoga is one of the most beneficial activities out there, and it’s the best when it comes to keeping your body, mind, and spirit in balance. It can improve the quality of your sleep and deal with journey-related circulation problems, which often occur during long flights. Yoga is also known for improving your posture, relieving anxiety, and lowering your blood pressure, which is exactly why you shouldn’t skip it. If you’re a passionate yoga enthusiast, you’ll be thrilled to hear that a lot of airports all over the globe have come up with yoga studios where you can relax to the max and practice your favorite poses while waiting for your flight. Besides that, a large number of hostels also offer yoga classes as a part of your traveling experience, so be sure you give them a try and you’ll see why everyone loves them.

As you can see, there are many ways to stay fit and healthy while traveling, so stop making excuses and embrace these habits which will inevitably bring you great results. Once you start eating the right foods, drink enough water, cut back on alcohol intake, and start practicing yoga, you’ll see that your effort was completely worth it!

On Valentine’s Day, millions of people will be able to express their love with red roses by early air travel. The flowers are very sensitive to the long stalk must be transferred quickly and carefully to Europe from countries where grown in Africa and South America.These days, the Lufthansa Cargo fills its commercial aircraft with flowers to ensure that millions of red roses can arrive on time and be sold on Valentine’s Day, February 14. Overall, the top commercial airline in Europe will carry about 1,000 tons of roses from warmer climates in Frankfurt, equivalent to 1,000 small cars.

The logistical process of transferring up to 90 tons of roses on a flight is actually more environmentally friendly than the cultivation of this quantity in Germany. According to research conducted at Cranfield University in Britain, this process would result in the release of larger amounts of carbon dioxide as well as to develop any artificial flower needs water and additional heating. Kenya, Colombia and Ecuador, where the capital, Quito, called the City of Eternal Spring, is the largest exporter of roses. The Lufthansa Cargo connects all these countries with floral production hub in Frankfurt with multiple cargo flights a week. In order to ensure that the special needs of Valentine’s Day have launched additional flights beyond the scheduled.

The Lufthansa Cargo has created a special service for the movement of perishable goods such as flowers or food. A sophisticated logistics system of the airline with specialized cooling systems to freight areas and alongside the experience and specialization of crop producers in exporting countries ensure that roses will arrive fresh at their destination. Immediately after harvesting the flowers are transported as quickly as possible from the nurseries in packing and from there directly to the aircraft. This ensures that they will retain all their freshness upon arrival at the airport in Frankfurt. From there coordinated their transfer to the next destinations of Europe.

5 Things You Shouldn’t Miss In Sydney

0


Australia is full of really cool places to visit. You could almost fly into one of the cities without a real travel plan laid out, start exploring, and still have an amazing vacation. But it’s generally a good idea to at least have some ideas in mind, particularly as concerns the top cities. This site has posted previously about the joys of Melbourne, and in this piece we’ll be turning our attention toward probably the only other Australian city as famous: Sydney, the capital of New South Wales and host city for the 2000 Olympic Games.

In any city this big and famous, and in this interesting a place, there’s enough to do to make your head spin. But to help narrow things down and hopefully show a diverse range of activity, we’re highlighting five things you really shouldn’t miss if you spend time there.

1. The Beaches

Sydney is known for its beaches, and it’s not all about Bondi Beach (which is probably the most famous of the bunch). As another travel writer put it, this city has a beach for everyone, whether you’re looking for a crowded cultural experience, a place to try your hand at surfing, or more secluded beauty.

Manly Beach is a great option if you’re looking for something visually impressive, Bondi is the place to go for the classic Sydney experience, and Bronte is a nice option if you’d like a little bit of a more relaxing time out. But the overall point is to make sure you set time aside to visit a beach or two, because Sydney is right up there with Rio de Janeiro as far as cities where beaches are the main attractions.

2. The Rocks

The Rocks is not a single attraction, but rather a neighbourhood in the city, and effectively Sydney’s “old town.” Quaint, old-fashioned, and historic, it’s just a very pleasant place to wander.

There are famous old pubs, buildings that hail from British settlements in the 1800s, and beautiful views of the water and some of the city’s best sights. You can find specific recommendations of establishments to check out at The Rocks, but we’d recommend simply exploring loosely.

3. The Harbour Bridge

Aside from the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is perhaps the city’s most famous landmark, and it’s actually quite striking. It extends from quite close to the Opera House out over the harbour and far enough that it actually holds the title of world’s largest steel arch bridge.

You can walk or drive across the bridge just for the experience and the views of the surrounding city and waters. But the real way to experience it is through the “BridgeClimb,” which allows you to actually trek up the arches. It’s a little bit daunting if you have a problem with heights, of course, but otherwise it’s a fantastic and beautiful adventure, and something you’ll be glad to say you did after the fact.

4. The Star

This is the biggest casino in Sydney, and not something we might ordinarily recommend. In-person casinos in generally are a bit out of vogue, thanks to all the alternative options people now enjoy.

Live dealer games online offer players the excitement and atmosphere of a real establishment from the comfort of their own homes. And with virtual reality emerging, that sense of physical presence in online games is only going to increase. But certain big cities in the world still have worthwhile casinos, and The Star is a very classy establishment. It’s not overly gaudy or ridiculous, but rather tasteful and attractive, with a focus on keeping you entertained through food, drink, and games. As city casino attractions go, it’s actually fairly unique.

5. Momofuku Seiobo

Recommending a single restaurant among a city’s top attractions isn’t always particularly fair or instructive, but we’ll make an exception for Sydney.

This is one of the more famous restaurants in this entire part of the world, run by a creative chef who fuses Asian traditions with his own Caribbean roots. Momofuku Seiobo is certainly a little bit fancy and expensive, but it truly is an attraction rather than just a restaurant or meal.

How to Make Your RV the Coolest Thing on the Road

0

It’s really cool to go camping with an RV fitted with miniature versions of your home spaces. But there are ways to make your camper the coolest thing yet. Here are exciting ideas on accessorizing and modifying your recreational vehicle.

Motorhome-RV-Class-C-Sprinter-Ford-Chassis

Entertainment

Entertainment devices such as flat screen TV, DVD player and speakers are standard RV fittings these days. However, the way you mount them such that they don’t take so much space makes your RV looking more spacious and cooler. Go for wall or ceiling mounts. Also, use door pockets or caddies to store remote controls.

Cooking Station

Most of your food is going to come from your mini kitchen. You might want to invest in a reliable yet space-saving stove or oven, and combine it with a slide out cabinet system, hanging dish racks, fold out rack, wall-mounted peg board, or over-the-sink rack to organize cooking utensils and food supplies.

Awning & Shades

Most RVs are equipped with solar panels to power up their gadgets and electronics. This means that the vehicle is supposed to be parked under the heat of the sun and not under the shade. To make your RV more comfortable and cooler inside, invest in tarps and drapes for an awning. Also, design a customized plywood or fiberglass roof over your RV to for a much cooler environment. The plywood or fiberglass roof secures the drapes on the sides in place.

Expanda_Interior_250pxl

Heating & Cooling

Vents and fans make your RV a better place to live in while your camping. Install vents on the roof and inside the RV to promote air circulation. A portable heater is likewise valuable during winter camping. Paint the roof of your RV in white to reflect heat. Place screens on doors and windows, so that you can open them for air and prevent insects coming in.

Storage

There are plenty of storage options to make your RV much comfortable and spacious. Hideaway hooks, Velcro, pocket organizers, ceiling storage, suction cups with hooks, dangling jars, hanging basket, hanging shelf, pegboard, veggie hammock, nesting bowls, magnet strips, fold out rack, bedside caddy, hanging pantry, and magazine holders are just some of the possible choices. The more organized your RV is, the more cooler and spacious it becomes, making it easier to move around and locate the things you need.
