Travels In Walterboro: Home Of Southern Hospitality

Walterboro is a small city in the Colleton County in South Carolina. This used to be the summer retreat of the rich plantation owners. Since their plantations were built on what used to be a marshy area, it served as the home for mosquitoes that carried a one-celled parasite that caused malaria. As more and more plantation owners built summer homes in the area, it expanded until it became the town of Walterboro.

Today, this city boasts of old structures with 19th-century architectural design, museums, antique stores, and a wildlife sanctuary nearby. There are restaurants that feature local cuisine and wherever you go, you can experience the hospitality for which Americas south has been known for. It’s a great, off-beat location for a sightseeing trip or short vacation.

Top 10 Things To Do In Antigua

With 365 beaches – one for every day of the year – and a packed calendar of sporting and music events, Antigua is the place to go for a holiday or fun and frolics.

With cricketing legends Viv Richards and Curtley Ambrose flying the flag for Antigua, it is not surprising that with such a sporting pedigree these Caribbean island boast such a huge variety of activities and natural attractions. Here are 10 things to experience when visiting the holiday isle.

Relax on White Beaches at Hawksbill

With 365 pristine white beaches, sun worshippers and water-sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice. Along the island’s developed northwestern coast, Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay are the places to go for a fully-loaded resort experience with watersports galore. Hawksbill has four crescent-shaped beaches, including one for nudists. We went on a crewed charter yacht vacation which included Hawksbill, and swimming in the clear waters of the BVI from the yacht is an experience not to be missed.

On the quiet hilly south coast, Doigs Beach and Rendezvous Bay are gorgeous and only accessible by four-wheel drive vehicle or on foot. The southeast corner of the island has great family beaches include Half Moon Bay, now a National Park, and Long Bay, which is completely protected by a reef.

Take a Day Trip to Barbuda

Head over to nearby Barbuda for deserted candyfloss pink sand beaches, created from tiny pink shells which have been washed ashore. While there, visit the wooded interior filled with wildlife and the Frigate Bird SanctuaryBarbuda is just 15-minute flight or 90-minute ferry ride from Antigua, home to over 5,000 frigate birds.

Enjoy Scuba Diving or Antigua Sailing Week

More than 200 ship wrecks provide thrills for scuba divers, while novices can plunge the crystal waters in a new submarine tour and marvel at stingray, sharks and turtles. There is also a lively sailing scene which culminates in the world-renowned Antigua regatta at the end of April. Sign up to help as a deck hand or be a spectator and enjoy six days of challenging racing run and non-stop social activities

Go Ape in the Antigua Rainforest

Away from the beach, hang loose like Tarzan and get a birds eye view of the Antigua Rainforest from zip wires, swings and suspension bridges on this eco experience.

Watch Cricket or Play Golf

The locals are passionate about cricket – and produced legend Viv Richards, Curtley Ambrose and Richie Richardson – so there are games going on all over the island. Stop a while and watch the locals scoring a few runs and hitting the ball for six. Alternatively, sink a putt or two on the two 18-hole golf courses or play tennis, go horse-riding or hiking.

Pick Up a Duty-Free Bargain at Heritage Quay

Pick up a duty-free bargain at Heritage Quay and Redcliffe Quay in downtown St Johns. Browse local arts and crafts, straw goods, pottery, jewellery, perfumes, cameras and crystals. On Friday and Saturday mornings, join the throng at the farmers market and buy folk crafts and juicy pineapples.

Listen to Cool Calypso and Steel Bands at the Antigua Carnival

Calypso music fills the air especially during the vibrant Antigua Carnival (July-August), when the locals take to the streets for a week of dancing, masquerades, steel bands, floats and street jump-ups.

Spin to DJs and the DeJam Festival

The hottest DJs from around the world spin the discs at the DeJam festival in late September.

Tap to Steel Pan at Shirley HeightsThe restored Shirley Heights Lookout, overlooking English Harbour, is the place to be on a Sunday night for stunning sunset views, steel pan and reggae bands, dancing, delicious barbecued food and fruity rum punch. Try refreshing tropical cocktails made with Antiguas own famous Cavalier rum and black sweet pineapple.

Delve Into Nautical History at Nelson’s Dockyard

Visit Nelsons Dockyard in English Harbour, the restored historic district which was developed as a base for the English navy during the great age of sail – it is the only Georgian dockyard in the world. Explore hilltop forts and nautical museums, where 18th century nautical memorabilia including Horatio Nelsons original telescope are on display.

Living On The Costas Of Spain With Children

Spain is a country famous for its close knit family way of life. If you have seen Spanish families out and about you may have noticed that they bring along not only their children but also the grandparents, cousins, friends, neighbours and anyone else who cares to join in.

Children are really welcome everywhere, whether it is a trip to a museum, a theme park, a local festivity or a posh restaurant! I must admit that Spain is one of the places where I can relax about my children’s “noise level”. The Spanish are a loud culture, whenever you see two Spaniards chatting you might think that they are arguing by their volume and gestures, when in fact they are just having a friendly conversation. This is a bit annoying if you are trying to have a conversation nearby. But if you have children with you, then this is bliss, as your children’s screams and shouts of joy will be drowned out by the general noise around you!

The Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol is a fantastic place for family holidays or maybe you will do as we did, and decide to move to Spain. Here, every member of the family can have fun in the same place regardless of their age. You will find plenty of activities to suit all ages and levels of fitness. You can even find shopping centres with “nurseries” that resemble theme parks so you can spend a whole day shopping the best brands, eating delicious tapas washed down with fine wines, stop at the hairdresser for a beauty treatment and even go to the cinema to see a film in English (VO-original version) while your children are being taken care off in the playground and your mom is having her hair done, and all under the same roof! Fantastic don’t you think?

Some of the best places we visited this year with the children were:

Tivoli World

The Tivoli world is a show and amusement Park in Benalmadena. This park is open daily from 5pm to 1am. For 6 Euros entrance fee -free for children under 1 meter- plus 12 Euros for a “Tivolino-bracelet” your children can have access to all the rides as many times as they want.

This is the largest entertainment park on the Costa -75,000 sq m, and is good for toddlers to the most adventurous thrill seeking teenagers and mummies!. There are plenty of rides to keep everybody going. If you are visiting the park with young children or grandparents, I would recommend using the Chu-Chu Train and tour the whole park without getting tired. Unless of course you want to exhaust the children so they go straight to bed while you put your high heels on to go and enjoy Marbella’s night life.

The park has very attractive gardens and fountains surrounding themes bars and restaurants like the Western Square, a replica of an Old American Western Town, where you can enjoy a Far West and Can Can show, while eating a Texas Grill. We all loved it, a fun day for the whole family.

Fuengirola Zoo

I have a special attachment to this Zoo as I have seen it from its beginnings, when it was a pitiful zoo back in the 90s and then when it went under construction for its transformation in what is now the best Zoo I have visited in Europe.

An amazing park considering how small it is. The Zoo developers took advantage of the fine climate of the Costa del Sol to recreate one single ecosystem: the tropical forest of Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia. And in June 2001, the new Fuengirola Zoo opened its gates to the public, transforming the Spanish and European concept of what a zoo could be, shattering once and for all the image of iron bars and concrete, and setting the definitive example for future animal parks. I couldn’t wait to see this Zoo and in July 2001 a month after its opening and just a couple of days after my daughter was born, we “took her” to the zoo, one of her first outings!

We go back to visit the zoo every time we can as it is always changing, introducing new species or having new animal babies born there.

Also during July and August the zoo is open at night time which gives a different perspective to the whole experience. For 33 Euros you can have access to the Zoo and dinner with an African dance show in the jungle.

La Cala de Mijas Fair

This local festivity is full of entertainment, music, food, drinks and attractions both at the beach during the day and at night time on the fair grounds. Wednesday is children’s day so all the attractions at the amusement park are half price.

Every July La Cala de Mijas holds its local festivities. This year from the 24th to the 27th La Cala de Mijas had sporting, musical, dancing and gastronomic events all day and night long. This is one of the most family orientated fairs on the Costa.

Selwo marina

A unique park in Andalucia with a dolphin and penguin sections. It also has exotic birds from the Amazon jungle. Plenty of fun, animal shows and swing parks for the younger ones.

Other places to visit are:
The Crocodile Park in Torremolinos. A whole day adventure.
Selwo adventure Park in Estepona. A safari Park.
Sea Life Centre in Benalmadena.
Funny Beach. On the road to Marbella, this is an excellent beach for families. Apart from the obvious it offers go karts, video games and children’s rides.
Telecabina, Benalmadena. The ride includes visit to the Eagles and Andalucian Horse displays.

The Travel Bucket List For The History-lover

Everyone has their priorities while traveling, or places they prefer to see. For some, they would love to stretch under the sun and drink a cocktail at the beach. There are others who love culture and art, spending hours in galleries or museums. Shopping or exploring big cities might also be another allure for some travellers. Then there are people who love to see old monuments and learn more about history.

There is nothing more thrilling than seeing structures thousands of years older than you, built by people who had very little technology. Visiting them will not just wow you, but you will also learn a lot and appreciate what ancient civilizations have accomplished.
Of course, everyone knows the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Wall of China and the Coliseum. For those who want to find out about lesser-known historical places out there, here is the bucket list for you:

Angkor, Cambodia –
These ornate temples, including the popular Angkor Wat, were built between the 9th and 15th Century. Over the years, they have been eaten by the forest before they were rediscovered. The huge roots intertwined with the stones add to the mystery of this historical site.

Acropolis, Greece –
These monuments are living examples of the ancient Greek civilization. Built around the 5th Century BC, these structures are not just religious temples, but they are also traces of a time of mythology and art. It is hard not to be amazed at the grandiosity that ancient Greece left behind more than two thousand years ago.

Galapagos Islands –
This group of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean made it into history for inspiring Charles Darwin to come up with his theory of evolution and natural selection. You may find here the special species of animals that led to this idea.

Göreme National Park, Turkey
– The volcanic landscape is the site for these strange underground dwellings found in rocks and caves built all the way back in the 4th century. Even more interesting is the location of sanctuaries popular during the Byzantine art era not far away.

Hampi Monuments, India
– Through the epic tales, shrines, and palaces, the culture of pre-colonial India has captured the hearts and minds of travelers. If you are one of those who would love to experience this up close and personal, head over to the Hampi Monuments, where the stone remains of the last Hindu Kingdom can still be viewed.

Stevns Klint, Denmark –
This very little known destination is rich in history of the geological kind. What you will find here are traces of life from millions of years ago, preserved in fossils. You will discover here, specifically, records of an ash cloud that formed after a meteorite crash-landed into Earth. Half of all existing species back then died because of this event, including the giant dinosaurs that roamed the Earth at this time. Here you can learn more about it and even see how life evolved after this cataclysmic event.

These are just some of the places in the world that will educate and inspire you. See more ideas here. These places represent different eras in Earth and mankinds history, and will surely leave you with wonder at how they have survived thousands, and even millions of years. Not only will you leave knowing a little bit more about the world, you will also feel an immense respect for those who have been born a long time before us. Even without the latest technology, they were able to leave behind these structures for us to enjoy many years later.

New Mattresses Everywhere, Which One Is The Best?

In the no so distant past, Marcie Judelson went shopping to supplant her 25-year-old, progressively uneven spring-loop mattress and tumbled down a shopper rabbit opening. “I went searching for a fundamental mattress like the one I had and was stunned to find that world is gone,” said Ms. Judelson, a promoting publicist who lives in San Francisco. “The mattress business took something basic and made it fantastically muddled. Furthermore, not to improve things.”

Is there any home buy more befuddling and laden with uneasiness than purchasing a mattress? A great many studys focuses to rest being indispensably vital to our wellbeing and joy, and it makes sense that a mattress is a foundational segment of a decent night’s rest. But to pick the correct one, customers must explore a Kafkaesque labyrinth.

For one thing, most real brand names mysteriously appear in the first place the letter “s” (Simmons, Sealy, Serta etc), making an obscuring equivalence. Is Simmons a stage up in quality from Serta? Does Stearns and Cultivate offer the Posturepedic, or is that Sealy? Is Rest Number the name of the organization on those infomercials and Select Solace the bed it offers, or the other way around?

Also, regardless of the possibility that you can make sense of the distinctions among the different brands, it’s hard to examination shop in light of the fact that numerous producers offer elite lines to retailers. So the mattress you like at Costco may not be conveyed at Languid’s — or on the off chance that it will be, it’s called something else. After she found a mattress she loved in one store, Ms. Judelson stated: “I’d go into store B and say, ‘Do you have the Serta blah, blah, blah?’ And the salesman would state: ‘I don’t have a clue. We may. However, our own have distinctive names.’ “

At that point there is the immeasurable tech-talk: progressed took curl innovation; PrimaCool gel; viscoelastic flexible foam. It’s as though mattress makers are offering not what is essentially an extensive stationary pad but rather a spaceship. A customer going to the Macy’s in Downtown Brooklyn on a current evening could discover among the many mattresses available to be purchased the Vitagenic Streamline Pad Firm via Aireloom, evaluated at $3,349 for a ruler set and gloating “extravagant talalay latex bolster.”

Talalay Latex?

Presently it seems as though you’re simply making stuff up.

David Perry, a supervisor at Furniture Today, an industry exchange production, has been expounding on the bedding business for right around 30 years. “It’s difficult to get your hands around,” Mr. Perry said. “One of the key focuses is that solace is subjective. In the event that solace was objective, this would be straightforward.”

Since a mattress is something we as a whole should purchase sooner or later, a demystifying appeared all together.

An Ocean of White

It might be ideal if mattresses resembled love seats or eating tables and came in effortlessly discernable styles, shapes and hues. In any case, as Brett Swygman, a VP for deals and improvement at Simmons, conceded, the items his organization and its rivals offer have a puzzling visual consistency. Individuals stroll into a store, Mr. Swygman stated, “and see an ocean of white rectangles.”

Do most mattresses carbon copy, as well as their pith — the segments that recognize well-made models from lesser ones — is covered up. Maybe that is the reason bed names can achieve an elaborate ridiculousness in their push to pass on lavishness, solace and building predominance: Edenton Extravagance Firm (Simmons), Warrington Extravagance Rich (Stearns and Cultivate), Vitagenic Gel Ultra Firm (Aireloom), Half and half Idealistic Withdraw (Serta).

On the off chance that you slice through the showcasing talk, however, characters rise among the significant producers. Simmons trademarked the took curl, a barrel-molded, autonomously moving encased spring.

Tempur-Pedic is known for adjustable foam (all the more later on both of these advances), and its kin brands are Stearns and Cultivate and Sealy, which both make spring and froth mattresses. All are claimed by Tempur Sealy Global. Serta is the No. 1 mattress mark by discount deals. Select Solace is the fundamental maker of air beds, which it showcases under the name Rest Number. What’s more, huge numbers of these brands have a few lines, to hit a scope of value focuses.

“One preferred standpoint of the expansion of items is that you have numerous options,” Mr. Perry said.

Obviously, that can demonstrate overpowering. So Mr. Perry recommended that mattress customers concentrate less on the promoting and equipment and more on what he calls the “product.”

As he put it: “How can it feel to you?”

Mr. Swygman recommended a self-constraining methodology. “I’d ensure the business relate doesn’t demonstrate me more than three beds,” he said. “You’ll have the capacity to discover a bed that is the correct feel, will help take care of rest issues you’re having and fit into a financial plan.”

Still, that isn’t generally fundamental, contingent upon where you shop. While the offering floors of retail establishments and bedding chains like Lethargic’s and Sit ‘n Rest are a fluorescent-lit ocean of white, most top of the line mattress stores have a tendency to look like a tender lake. The more you’re eager or ready to spend, it appears, the less you’re overpowered with choices.

At the Duxiana boutique on the Upper East Side, the Swedish producer of “superior rest frameworks,” as it alludes to its mattresses, gives just three models to test. On a current evening there, Norwegian electro-pop played in the little, peaceful space, while a sales representative took 20 minutes to clarify the distinctions in development and feel between the beds. Shaking a cushion napkin for the client and peppering his pitch with references to look into performed in “Swedish rest labs,” he ran over more like a rest expert than somebody attempting to settle a negotiations.

Maui Whale Watch Tours

Maui can offer you the best vacation in Hawaii. From hitting the beach or just basking in the sun to scuba diving and snorkeling, and from whale watching to shopping and volcano tour, a Maui vacation offers it all with a spectacular island sun, sea, and sand. These are among the many Maui activities and tours you could choose from to have an exciting, fun-filled, within the budget vacation.

Having the chance to experience whales in their natural habitat by taking a whale watching tour could be the one and only chance you have to do so. This makes it important to make the experience count, get the most for you money spent and make sure that the whale watching tour that you book is a reputable company, as you may only get one chance to get a good look.

Things to Look Out For

An experienced, knowledgeable and patient guide will be the first indication that the tour you are about to embark on is legitimate. Most of the time the whale watching tour companies are registered as an official tour operator and happily advertise the information to visitors before the tickets cruise are purchased.
A whale watching tour guide needs to have the right combination of educational and scientific knowledge to make your day a memorable one out at sea. Your guide should have a comprehensive log book, logging sightings of whales, the species, the size of the pod, that kind of thing, along with photos and other information.

Tours to stay away from

So often these days, because of a large amount of migrating whales passing through bays and harbours, you get opportunists that try and make a quick profit by offering whale watching tours for a steep price.
These guides and tour operators are not reputable and are not out to offer an educational experience that will encourage visitors to be more aware of the marine life, and are just out to make as much money as possible. In all cases, these whale watching tour operators must be avoided. A good Whale Watching Tour is located on the west side of Maui

Maui whale watch tours are indeed safe; your tour guide will do a quick run through on the basics of boat safety and should have the proper lifesaving equipment on board. Visitors do not need to worry so much about the safety aspect, a good whale watching tour is not a speed test on the open water, it is a gentle meander, if you will, out on the open sea, and the more care and patience one practices out there, the better your chances of having the best sightings will be.

The idea is not to disturb the beautiful animals, agitate them or invade their space, but to have the chance to observe them and their behaviour in their natural habitat.
A good tour guide will respect the animal’s space, and will not go closer than regulations allow and will not allow human interaction with the creatures. Visitors must take plenty of photographs and enjoy the wonderful and spectacular privilege out with these gentle giants of the sea.

Importance of Leisure Activity in Mental Health

When it comes to leisure time and health, depression is one aspect which cannot go unnoticed. Lack of sufficient leisure time activity has been reported to increase depression if well used. People who engage in leisure time activities, on the other hand, are on the safe side, as it is hard, if not impossible for them to show signs of depression.

People who engage in regular physical activity – however intense – are less likely to have symptoms of depression, according to new research published in the November issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.

rocksResearchers from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London teamed up with academics from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the University of Bergen in Norway to conduct the study. They asked 40,401 Norwegian residents how often they engaged in both light and intense physical activity during their leisure time. Light activity was defined as an activity that did not lead to being sweaty or out of breath, while intense activity did result in sweating or breathlessness. The residents were also asked how physically active they were at work, underwent a physical examination and answered questions regarding symptoms of depression and anxiety.

The team found an inverse relationship between the amount of leisure-time activity and symptoms of depression. In other words, the more people engaged in physical activity during their spare time, the less likely they were to be depressed. People who were not active in their leisure time were almost twice as likely to have symptoms of depression compared to the most active individuals. Interestingly, the intensity of the exercise didn’t seem to make any difference.

Even people who took light exercise, without breaking into a sweat or getting out-of-breath, were less likely to show symptoms of depression.

Would it not be worth having a few minutes or hours increase years in your lifetime? Well, a well spent leisure time has been found to increase life expectancy among both men and women, while black people stand a better chance of a longer lifetime than the whites.

In order to determine the number of years of life gained from leisure-time physical activity in adulthood, which translates directly to an increase in life expectancy, researchers examined data on more than 650,000 adults. These people, mostly age 40 and older, took part in one of six population-based studies that were designed to evaluate various aspects of cancer risk.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the parent agency of NIH, recommends that adults ages 18 to 64 engage in regular aerobic physical activity for 2.5 hours at moderate intensity — or 1.25 hours at vigorous intensity — each week. Moderate activities are those during which a person could talk but not sing. Vigorous activities are those during which a person could say only a few words without stopping for breath.

“Our findings highlight the important contribution that leisure-time physical activity in adulthood can make to longevity,” said study author Steven Moore, Ph.D., of NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, and lead author of the study. “Regular exercise extended the lives in every group that we examined in our study — normal weight, overweight, or obese.”

The researchers found that the association between physical activity and life expectancy was similar between men and women, and blacks gained more years of life expectancy than whites. The relationship between life expectancy and physical activity was stronger among those with a history of cancer or heart disease than among people with no history of cancer or heart disease.

Lack of a useful activity during leisure time, or entire lack of the leisure time itself can easily cause anxiety. This is according to a study conducted on high school students, which shows that a considerable number of students who exercised during their leisure time were on the safe side.

The purpose of this study was to survey rate of anxiety in high school female students and its relation to how to spend leisure time. The Sample consisted of 136 students randomly selected. Two self-report questionnaires were used for the present study.

The first questionnaire includes spending leisure and the second one, that is, GHQ-28 was used to assess anxiety. Kolmogorov- Smirnov test and independent t-test were used for Statistical analyses. The results shows level of anxiety in the group who did physical activity in their leisure time was lower comparing with group who did sedentary activity (t=5.73, p=0.001). Therefore doing sport exercise in leisure can help students to reduce anxiety.
