Ha Long Bay adventure

The wave rose, its tip splintering into crystal drops. All seven colors of the rainbow were reflected in the droplets, which hung in midair before returning to the sea’s green depths, the sun was setting over Ha long Bay as my partner and I paddled our kayak against a strong current.

In some place, Ha Long’s waters lie still. In others especially those exposed to the open, the water is choppy. In place the waves rush against rocks, the water hissing as it hits, discharging plumes of white foam. There times and places where the swell was so great that even an experienced sailor would have been cowed, let alone amateur kayakers like ourselves, come from the city to try a new water sport.

The swift current inside Ba Ham Cave evoked strong feelings as we struggled to push our fragile craft through three chambers where darkness has ruled for thousands of years.

The water raced around rocks covered with razor – sharp barnacles, the current threatening to shatter our kayak against the rocks.

Ha Long Bay draws travelers who enjoy a challenge. Declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Ha Long’s wild scenery encourages visitors to test their strength and endurance. Alone in the wilderness, the only sounds were those of the waves and the sea birds, I left lost as we searched out spots of interest – fishing village like Cua Van Hang Luon and Hang Manh, Ba Men Temple and Ba Ham Lake…

After hours spent fighting the waves our arms were weary. We carried only a water bottle and a camera in a waterproof bag.

We were both wet from head to foot, salty spray having washed over us. In open water, we could maneuver the kayak with ease, but found steering much harder in tight channel or dark caves. Challenges included strong currents, jagged rocks, and sharp stalactites.

Steering a two person kayak requires teamwork. Both passengers must row in unison. After hours of hard labor, it felt wonderful to let our craft drift and listen to the sounds and of distant waves and seabirds.

With thousands of uninvited islands, Ha Long Bay contains countless surprises. Even today, locals still discover new caves high in the cliffs, or come upon newly – formed sandbars. Exploring Ha Long Bay, I forgot all about urban life, my mind as clear as the drops of sea spray, sparkling with all the colors of the rainbow.

Review: Kinect Adventures

All new format and consoles ends up with a game that defines the technology. For the Wii was the Wii Sports that all Wii owners to enjoy, and Microsoft tries on the same with Kinect Adventures. This is a game that sends you through some very different challenges, and it quickly becomes clear exactly why this game ended up being included with the camera.

Through the various challenges the five mini play Kinect Adventures offers, you will experience most of what Kinect is capable of. You get everything from fast and hectic sessions in which the reaction ability will be put against the wall, the shorter and more tactical challenges. Most important of all, you will eventually use the whole body, and demonstrates how well the game Kinect can read everything from arms to legs. It is easy to be intrigued.

Much of the small

Kinect Adventures is not a great game. It deals with the more to show what we can, but to show how long we can get the player to hold the previous. The game offers five different activities that are all so different that it will be like five different games in one package, although the play is fairly brief. The best of them is without doubt Rush River, a home version of elvenasjonars national sport, rafting.

Xbox avatar is placed in a rubber boat, and all that is needed to set off is a small jump. Zip line down, you still striare currents and must use your body to navigate the tub. It is artigare than it sounds out. Kinect read your movements very accurately, and it feels natural to just sit in one or the other direction to take a turn. Rivers you glide down is also full of jumps where you logically have to jump for himself to come up in the air. The aim of this course. Coins is everywhere, swtor credits and you get all you need to be far more active than most people tend to be (unless you are like a ten years old version of me, and do you get Mario to run faster by lean to the right) when they play games.

It is more than the Seamless control that makes Rush River so engaging. The different river journey is full of antics and detours, which not only makes it a solid demonstration of Kinect their properties, but also a fun game where you always find something new. River Rush could almost have been a game in itself if it had been more content around it.

What keeps Rush River all the way back from the great heights that it has very little to do in the game, even if you add in search of all the detours. The only player that you can do is to jump or swing from side to side. That is all. You can not speed up, you can not do smsprell, and there is therefore little einsformig as soon as the immediate involvement has subsided.

Balance Sport

From a trip down the river, jumped to Reflex Ridge pretty big. In this game, you stand on a platform that moves through various obstacle courses. You have to duck under and jump over different obstacles, as you must take care to move between the right and left to avoid a slap in the face. It also deals with it to collect coins and you get a solid dose each time you come you past an obstacle, or you can strive out his arms in different angles to collect the coins that appear in front of you. Reflex Ridge is without doubt the most physically demanding game since you have to change position in a high pace, and you should eventually have a fairly rapid responses to gather all the credits.

Rally Ball is again something quite different. In this game, you stand inside a channel where you throw a ball back and forth against the crates that are stacked on top of each other. The aim is to smash all the crates, and the challenge marked quickly since the ball comes roaring back. Among the boxes you will also find some blinking that will send even more balls back. It is eventually a fairly chaotic game that gets both your test and Kinect camera's response capabilities. The game read up fairly well, but in the most hectic situations, the technology can slip. I will still not say anything for sure cannot. I've lost a ball someone has thrown at me more than once, although when I was convinced that I would take it.

A far more impressive example of what Kinect are able to come in the form of the wacky game 20,000 Leaks. In a little cage under the sea, you must ensure to close all small holes made by angry fishermen. Yes, that's right. You will be attacked by the fisherman who has seen quite sure tired of over-fishing in the world's oceans, and now have decided that enough is enough. However, there is a job you can handle pretty smoothly since Kinect Adventures has invented an exceptional new glass where all the holes can be permanently fixed with a friendly hand.

It starts easily, and extends up to the right or left to seal all the small holes that appear. In an ever-increasing pace you need to close holes here and there, and the difficulty is even greater when you suddenly see leaks on the floor. You ends up using the whole body to keep the water out and extends the arms and legs in a perpetual struggle against the water. It is never pronounced hard, at least not for a long legs person like me, but it keeps you active, and you will not stand still for long.

So it goes down

The last game in Kinect Space Adventures is Pop, a little worm works by a meaningless pastime. Here you have some flapping his arms to float in the air, while you go forward and backward in order to exploit the three dimensional space you are in. The point is to pop bubbles, and there is no fun. The bubbles come from both top and bottom and from each side, and the whole thing is just frustrating. At first it seems simple enough, but it develops quickly into a game that requires more than you are able to provide. Kinect doing its job, but the game is built in a way that requires faster reactions than what an average person will be able to achieve with the whole body. An analog stick would fit better.

Apart from the Space pop offering them different activities in Kinect Adventures of pleasant fun. The game is structured in a very family friendly way that lets you proceed as you wish. All courses and activities are immediately available in Free Play, but if you want you can take part in an adventure mode where you can win trophies and various prizes for the Xbox your avatar.

This is still not enough to maintain interest over time. Kinect Adventures is a very nice and polished game with colorful graphics and great, but it lacks content. Each of which is solid and fun activities (excluding Space Pop), but you made so small that the whole game almost appears to be a demo of a larger product. You get a good first impression, have fun a few hours, and after it goes a little tired and lost quite big drive to go further. Exactly this is actually quite suck. I like Kinect Adventures, and I want to play any more of it, but I did not bother to go through the same stuff over again.

You can play along with a friend, but this game does not add much. To be two pieces in a rubber boat down a river may be fun once or twice, but it offers more challenges than it's worth. Reflex Ridge is a little better with since one can compete to inroads, but for the rest of the package you earn very little to be two.


As an introduction to Kinect Kinect Adventures works well. It is a completed and steady game that gets the job done. The different activities you can take part in demonstrating all the different aspects of Microsoft's new technology, and it is easy to be enthusiastic.

The game lacks content, however. Each activity has several tracks, but everything is still very similar. You never get the feeling to really want to get a new challenge, and the game supports all the time on the same mechanics you learn in the initial phase. There will soon be difficult to build up the motivation to continue. Since the game comes pre-packaged with Kinect camera one can perhaps accept that Kinect Adventures is not the most detailed game, but it had nevertheless been nice if Microsoft gave us more reasons to spend time in the company of the brand new camera.

The best we can say about Kinect Adventures is enough that it is guaranteed to make people more eager Kinect-experiences.

Safety in Adventure Tourism

In India “adventure” is the new buzzword. There are new companies opening every month. Most of the company owners are experienced professionals who have worked in the industry for many years before branching off on their own. A majority of the companies in India offer safe, responsible and eco friendly adventures, which every one can and must enjoy.

Most adventure travel companies follow prescribed international guidelines for the particular sport they are involved in. However in India, other than traditional activities like mountaineering there are no standard guidelines in place for most other activities. The Ministry of Tourism is in the process of laying down guidelines for all adventure sports. Till this process is complete the trade bodies like the Indian Association of Professional Rafting Outfitters (IAPRO) and Adventure Tour Operators Association of India (ATOAI) play a key role in ensuring self regulation.

These bodies conduct regular training camps on first aid, CPR, Mountain rescue, swift water rescue techniques and early warning systems.

Older and established rafting and trekking companies regularly conduct refresher courses for their instructors and invite overseas trainers to keep abreast with the latest in rescue techniques.

With the adventure travel industry growing leaps and bounds, it is important that as a consumer and as an operator we are aware of the current safety standards accepted worldwide and in India. The important issue here is for everyone involved to understand the sport, market it to the right people and use the right operator to execute the project.

Firstly, one has to accept that the term “adventure” it implies that there are inherent risks that are involved in the sport.

Still, world over there are many more people who are injured or die from crossing roads and other such mundane activities, than from participating in adventure sports. Why is that? The way I see it is that most adventure travel companies today are aware of the risks involved and they train their staff accordingly and are always prepared with back up safety plans incase of any untoward incidents.

However, having said that, one must realize that today the potential risks in adventure travel are much higher. In an attempt to stay ahead in the market, adventure travel companies are today offering increasingly tougher and more exotic adventure trips for the clients to choose from. In the 60s and 70s only a select few were capable of attempting climbing expeditions on Himalayan Summits above 7,000 mts. Today, if you have one year and USD 1, 00,000 you can easily find some one to take to the summit of Everest. Today, you can undertake first rafting descents of Grade V rivers, Heli Ski down 4000 mts peaks, walk into active volcanoes, sky dive from 25,000 ft, trek across Tibet, visit the North and South Poles and even go on a space mission, all for a price. These are just a few example selected from a wide range of insane adventures available all over the world.

Camping Lantern Adventures

There are many people out there, probably including yourself, who love the outdoors. This could include fishing, climbing, hiking, you name it and there are lots of people loving it. The thing that comes with all outdoor pleasures and adventures is camping and with camping you need certain types of equipment. This is where the camping lantern comes in to play.

The camping lantern brings all outdoor activity enthusiasts together because it is what they all need. No matter what you are doing outdoors or why you are camping, the simple fact remains that you need to have some light during the night hours.

There are many types of lantern available to us and people will buy different ones because they have different needs and budgets. That is why there are so many available. To briefly name a few, there are the old school fuel powered ones, the not so old battery powered ones and the newer lanterns that make use of freely available energy such as hand cranking or solar powered ones.

Depending on how much you already have to carry as well as your environmental sensitivity, you will choose accordingly.

Some of you will just be camping and have a large car packed with everything. You will probably get the older models that require more things to run. On the other hand, if you are a rock climber then you do not want to carry much so a solar powered camping lantern where you do not need to carry extra batteries, will do just fine.

Camping lanterns can light up your night for eating and other adventures. You may want to see the night life and see what is lurking around your camping area. Or maybe you just want to light the way to the toilets in the middle of the night.

Maybe you are not camping at all and the power went out. This is where they come in handy for other things that you might not have thought of before.

There are so many uses for the lantern and so many types as well. With a bit of research you are sure to get the exact one for the right price that is right for you and your needs. Keep the environment in mind at all times so preserve it as much as possible and have fun in all of your outdoor and camping lantern adventures.

Be An Adventure Capitalist

Entrepreneurs Know Bold Action Wins The Day

by Michael D. Hume, M.S.

Venture capitalists are investors who specialize in funding start-up businesses, to put it simply. They are money people; they want to invest in viable commercial ventures which create strong cash flows, and then make a tidy profit down the road. They expect to have the occasional "klunker" among the businesses in which they invest, and therefore tend to spread their risk within a portfolio of start-up investments.

They're entrepreneurs, to be sure, willing to take risks to create opportunities for themselves and others, and calculating those risks to pay off (often handsomely).

But not all of them are capital-E "Entrepreneurs" in the way I've often described one of the two types of people out there. There are Entrepreneurs, who take Big Ideas to the marketplace and work hard to make their enterprises successful, and there are Victims, who tend toward criticism and need to be taken care of.

In essence, I see Entrepreneurship as an attitude, a philosophy of life. Victimhood is a rival attitude born of a completely different worldview.

Not all Entrepreneurs own or invest in businesses; not all who do those things are Entrepreneurs, in the attitudinal sense. Entrepreneurs take bold action; Victims are happier to criticize those bold actions. I've described it thus: the Entrepreneur is the actor onstage, taking risks, putting it all out there, performing. The Victim would rather be the theater critic. When it's all over, the Entrepreneur gets the applause (or the boos and hisses)... and the best among them never pays attention to her reviews.

The Victim sits around in bars and coffee shops with other generally-dissatisfied critics, exchanging snarky comments and praising himself for his snide intelligence and the way he "sees through" all the "hype." And the theater critic always forgets that, without the actor, he's out of work.

In my experience, the most successful employees have an Entrepreneurial attitude. They always seem to consider that they are in business for themselves, even if they have the traditional employment arrangement with a company in which they enjoy no ownership. Owner or not, the Entrepreneur works her job as if she owned the company, and they were her assets on the line every day. Entrepreneurs take bold actions - actions their less-Entrepreneurial co-workers often see as risky - with an undominable positivity and lots of energy. They work unpaid overtime, and if the boss asks why, they make a little joke of it by saying something like "Well, I decided to run a special this week on my labor, and I hope you'll be pleased and keep me employed." Can you picture the Victim-type ever doing or saying such things?

Entrepreneurs are Adventure Capitalists. To them, most of whom own a business, the opportunity to create a viable commercial concern - to find and keep happy customers - is the great adventure of life. Like almost all famous businesspeople of all time, they fail time and time again, but never lose that spirit of adventure that tells them they'll hit it big one day.

Don't lose heart. Stay bold. Times are tough, but every time they are, some people get rich. And those people are the Entrepreneurs who refuse to let their inner Victim steal their optimism. They're the Adventure Capitalists, and they (you!) will lead us to the better times ahead.

Find Adventure in Mendoza

The descent down the Atuel and Mendoza Rivers on rafts is now a tourist brand in Cuyo region. All you need to know is that in this group sport each of the crew unites efforts, adrenaline and adventure. Mendoza has a special invitation to rafting, thanks to the decline on inflatable boats in its water flows of varying difficulty. This practice of adventure is perfect for groups or families as well as for individuals, who share the interest with other tourists, housed in Mendoza's Hotels.

Several companies provide the service in three regions: the first is Cacheuta, followed by Potrerillos and Uspallata.

The area closest to the city of Mendoza is Cacheuta town known for its hot springs and natural beauty. Uspallata and Potrerillos are next in terms of the distance. The activity is performed on the Mendoza River with circuits for beginners, intermediates and experts. In each case the descents are done with an instructor on board and others who follow the crew in a kayak.

The second area is on the sothern side of the province, in the department of San Rafael and rafting is performed on the Atuel River waters. This place is known as Valle Grande and it is the main tourist circuit of the area. Even though the services are the same, the Mendoza River is recommended for experts.

In both areas rafting can be combined with other sports such as kayaking, horseback riding, trekking, mountain biking and 4x4. In all cases, companies make the transfer of passenger's hotel-Atuel-Mendoza-hotel.

Since several years, Potrerillos has been one of the leading adventure tourism centers in Argentina, located in the department of Luján de Cuyo and 62 kilometers from the city of Mendoza. It receives tourists and adventurers of different nationalities in any time of the year.

The trip begins at the Mendoza's Hotels, continues through National Route No. 7 in the foothills of the Andes, discovering all its scenic beauty, which can be explored through various adventure excursions. Potrerillos Dam, roads and mountain trails and the Mendoza River are ideal for the practice of sports such as rafting, kayaking, trekking, rappelling, zip lines, mountain biking and horseback riding. The alternatives are endless, every full moon weekend the base camp Andean Rivers coordinates an unforgettable bonfire, where the site is transformed into a party full of music, drinks, rafting, and live bands. A great chance to enjoy with friends or meet new people, mostly foreigners.

Snowy Adventures

It is almost winter and there are exciting winter activities you can engage in. Snowshoeing is a popular winter sport which is easy to learn, accessible, and affordable. Snowshoers are like hikers on a snowy trail or mountain. They climb the backcountry for the pleasure and thrill it gives them. Snowshoeing is also a sport that benefits your health. It helps you burn 600 calories an hour, more than walking or running does. It is a good fitness program to help you lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.


When looking for a pair of snowshoes, there are three types to consider: recreational hiking, aerobic or fitness, and hiking or backpacking. If you are a first-timer, you should get recreational hiking snowshoes. These are designed for hiking on simple terrain.

Aerobic or fitness snowshoes are used by active snowshoers who are also runners and cross-trainers, whereas hiking snowshoes are for experienced snowshoers.


There are snowshoeing techniques you can easily follow. The first technique is uphill. You can do this by pushing the toe of your shoe vertically into the snowpack, shifting your weight to that foot, and repeating the process when the snow is light and soft. If the snow is hard, do the traverse technique which involves traveling horizontally along a slope.


The downhill technique is similar to traverse, except you put your weight on the back part of your shoe. This technique is best applied on soft snow. The last technique you can try is reverse: plant your poles on your sides, jump, twist, and plant again.

You can try baby steps by moving your shoe a little after another. Try learning these techniques on a snowy trail in a resort community where you can stay at a Utah vacation home rental.


Snowmobiling is a fun and safe activity you can do with your family and friends. All you need are winter clothes—snow pants, gloves, jacket, and snowmobile boots. You can buy snowmobile gear from dealers or visit websites where you can find good deals. There are many places you can visit to try snowmobiling, such as in a resort community where you can stay at a Utah vacation home rental.


Lodging in a Utah vacation home rental is especially relaxing after going on snowy adventures. Here, you can spend quality time with your family and friends in front of the warm fireplace.

Mario Adventure Games Online Adventure and Fun

I love enjoying internet flash games simply because they are exciting and enjoyable to experience. Most of the games could be unreasonable oftentimes as well. Nonetheless, the only real kind of games which I like enjoying is super Mario adventure games internet. These kinds of games have pretty wonderful quality for them being free internet and in addition they actually enable you to put them in your weblogs, web sites, or to in your desktop computer for future play.

I mostly have fun with these games when I am bored somewhere there exists computer access. If you want to do several things if you find yourself bored where you work or maybe along at the library someplace and you should think about playing some excellent Mario adventure games online. Some of these web pages have numerous excellent games and several other versions not so very good, however you absolutely will not be weary with any game which you play.

A Thai Temple Adventure

Thailand is a mystical place, filled with a blend of tradition, religion, and beautiful architecture. Now, more than ever, tourists and vacationers are realizing the beauty that can be found in Thailand, and are traveling there to enjoy seeing the majesty of Thailand's temples. In Thailand, travelers can appreciate sacred religious buildings, statues, and artifacts; admire the amazing scenery; and enjoy delicious cuisine, all at the same time. Many travelers plan a visit to Thailand with a particular focus in mind: seeing the temples of Thailand.

Thailand's culture is a mixture of influence from Cambodia, Southeast Asia, and India, creating a very unique culture indeed. Buddhism is the national religion and respect towards ancestors and towards religion is essential in this culture. That is why there are so many different temples throughout Thailand - there are over 31,000.

Historically, temples played an integral part, often surviving war and invasion when other buildings did not. And the temples are also extremely important in everyday life, shaping society by bringing values to the cities that they are located in.

If you are planning a visit Thailand, there are a number of temples you should consider exploring. There are a specific few that should definitely make your list:

* Ancient Palace - The ancient temple is officially called Wat Phra Si san Phet. This temple was the largest temple in the area and was used as a royal palace during its history. The main attraction is a complex at the entrance to the palace which has a number of buildings that visitors can wander through to get a feel for the ancient past of this beautiful temple.

* Wihan Phramongkhon Bophit - This temple is special because it contains one of the largest bronze Buddha statues that can be found in Thailand.

It was restored in the 1950s and was the first site for royal cremations.

* Wat Chaiwatthanaram - This beautiful temple is a must-see for those who are visiting Thailand for the first time. It was built in 1630 on the Chao Phraya River and was designed to look much like temples that can be found in Cambodia. There are over 100 Buddha images and statues in the building, and most travelers state that it is one of the most peaceful and mystical temples that a visitor to the area can enjoy.

The temples of Thailand are much more than historical and religious structures; they are magical as well, prompting thousands of visitors every year, regardless of their religious beliefs, to flock to these amazing and beautiful sites.

Some Great American Adventures

There have been few more eagerly anticipated sequels, with the ever increasing developments in technology it seems there is no better time to release a follow up to the eighties classic, Tron.

The first game was a surprise hit, latching on to a prominent cultural zeitgeist, the modern phenomenon of the video game. Certainly it seemed a risky endeavour, with a seemingly specific target audience its appeal could have been limited, yet it was a tale that was received by a great many.

Perhaps it was to do with the burgeoning cultural interest that the video game was attracting. While Tron may have seemed a full on fantasy in its day, it has also served as a fine parable perceiving the bloodthirsty future of video games.

As they depict gladiatorial battles between players, could the producers of the original Tron ever conceive such games as Grand Theft Auto.? There also seems something pertinent here in regards to the increase in video game based discourse in the papers, the distance between reality and these interactive video games has become more blurred and more questioned in contemporary consciousness.

So now almost 30 years later it seems like the perfect time to reignite the story.

As the technology of video games has surpassed even the expectations of the original film, it seems only right to update the franchise. As yet the sequels and editions to the Tron film legacy has only been expanded in the video game medium and this is its first cinematic update.

Of course along with the sequel there is the inevitable accompanying video game, this, after all is the age of the Game of the movie, in which stories are milked for all the franchising they are worth, and video games are very fertile form of merchandising.

But this particular Tron is primed with an unprecedented hype machine.

Firstly the advents in 3d technology are already exciting fans, and this movie is primed to mark an even vaster development in the facility. But even more exciting to fans is perhaps the buzz surrounding Disneyworld attractions. With its license owned by the Buena Vista entertainment, Disney own all the franchising rights, meaning if the film is successful enough there may be some Tron attractions coming to Disneyworld.

While the film is soon to be released after a year's worth of buzz generating, with a trailer developed and competed by the beginning of the year it seems Disney have been happy to sit on the Tron and let the anticipation build.

The world wide release is scheduled in for mid- December with the film set to hit cinemas for a Christmas time release. Yet there will be advanced screenings in Florida, which has lead many fans to book advance Disneyworld vacation homes, in order to see the movie first.

The plot follows on from the first film, with Jeff Bridges' son coming to find him in the Tron universe, only to find the world rapidly developing as they try to escape.

Adventurous Hikes At Masca

MASCA is the second highest populated village on the island, after Parque Nacional del Teide. It is located at an impressive gorge that is as isolated as it is picturesque. This village is considered the prettiest village in Tenerife. With flocks of tourists arriving in the mornings and late evenings, the village is beset with activity. It was only recently, in 1991 that this village was connected to the outside world by road.

Enriching Hikes

This village offers pretty sights such as old stone houses that give luscious and relaxing palm tree views as well as steep ravines that run down to the Atlantic Ocean. An early hike down the narrow gorge leading to the sea before coming on to the valley is a really memorable experience while at Tenerife.

For those who are adventurous, you can hike from the coast to the village which takes about 3 hours.

The fertile valley is a spacious habitat for its 600 inhabitants at one time, now dwindling down to about 100 with many stone houses left vacant. The remaining inhabitants stay to service the tourists.

The hardier hiker can enjoy a 6 hour hike up and down the challenging Barranco de Masca which is sloped steeply, linking the village to the sea. It is a straightforward path although the gorge has some loose rocks and hands are required to steady one’s hike; nevertheless, it is relatively easy for most experienced hikers.

It is truly an amazing hike as the ravine can go as high as 600 meters above sea level with its narrowest path being 20 meters wide, but this is where the best of landscapes is, as you will view splendid and impressive swirling rock formations and unique vegetation. Soon, the crashing sea waves against the rocks turn into stillness as you head back towards the beach, but strong sea currents here prevent safe swimming.

Getting to Masca

The best mode of transportation to Masca is by car. If you are on a budget or do not want to drive up the challenging steep slopes, the public buses are an alternative but they are not very frequent. The third possibility is to join a guided hike to the valley which is usually offered at most major coastal resorts that also throw a shuttle ride into the town, as well as a boat transfer from the beach after you have enjoyed your hike of the Masca canyon.

Accommodation at Masca

There are not too many available accommodations in Masca itself, as most visitors come for a day trip. Nevertheless, you can find some decent place to stay at a German-managed converted schoolhouse in the village, called El Guanche that offers rooms with shared toilets and half-board.

There are many appropriately located bars and restaurants around town which open for business from noon to 6 o’clock pm. One of the best eateries in this village is Chez Arlette, located near the town church and main road, which offers a splendid view of the valley while serving excellent home-made refreshing lemonade and tasty local fare like the popular tangy grilled lamb and crispy corn cakes.

Madrid Daytrip Adventures

Madrid is the capital of Spain. But there are many interesting sights outside of Madrid. Day trips in Madrid can be undertaken using public transport, rented cars or excursion tours by professional tour operators. You can also opt for guided tours which give you the best of both worlds: good sights and comfort, as you are driven around with a tour guide to explain many interesting sights along the way. Hence, you should opt for many interesting combined guided tours that will take you around Madrid if you are in a rush. This way, you will be able to see more than what you bargain for. Most places listed below can be enjoyed within a day although there are longer stays if you have the time.

Barcelona - The best way to get to Barcelona from Madrid for a day trip is via Spain's incredible high-speed train or AVE system.

It may be a bit more costly but it is an adventure by itself if you have not been on one before.

Toledo – this is the former Spain capital which has a lot of medieval charm to enchant you. Its ancient city walls with its winding streets will captivate you as you travel along them for a view of their past.

Seville – this is a city that is located a little further from Madrid but not when you take the AVE train. You can enjoy the sights better with a guided tour which includes the train ride.

Cordoba – AVE would be the best form of reaching this city so that you can still call it a day trip; else a two-day visit is preferred.

Segovia – A day trip here will set you on the charms of its fairytale castle and Roman aqueduct make Segovia an essential day trip from Madrid.

Valencia – this is the third largest city in Spain with the nearest beach to Madrid.

Avila – this city offers charming and well preserved city walls from medieval times in the best of Europe.

El Escorial – there are plenty of monasteries and crypts of ancient kings that are over 400 years. This quiet town is a nice contrast to the tourist crowd at Segovia and Toledo.

El Valle de los Caidos – the English name of this town means ‘The Valley of the Fallen’ which refers to General Franco and the nation’s Civil War.

Aranjuez – this place hosts the royal residence which can be reached by a Madrid train.

Cuena – this town has unique looking houses that seem to be hanging off the precipice’s edge, known as ‘casas colgantes’.

Fun Online Adventure Games

Today, it has never been easier to conquer boredom with fun, exciting and high quality online games. The demand for these often free services is expanding rapidly and as a result lots of gaming websites are being created. Some of these sites offer amazing games that are incredibly absorbing, engaging and positively addictive. Adventure games, in my opinion, provide the best gaming experience of all the genres. Whether it is solving clues and puzzles on a breathtaking journey that pushes your perceptions of reality; journeying to a far away land on a quest for a ring that holds the key to a loved ones safety; or running your own virtual aquarium, fun is not too far away.

These games are far from complex - very user friendly and have amazing full screen visuals and cheeky, fitting sound effects that enhance your gaming experience to a level that will keep you glued to the screen.

One of the big differences between these types of games and more serious online multiplayer gaming is the bandwidth required. A lot less data is used which makes them suitable for all download speeds. They are especially suitable for those users of wireless internet - which can be both expensive and on the slow side. Many of these adventure games have a G rating making them absolutely perfect for the kids.

One of my favourite games is called "Governor of Poker" where you battle your way through poker tournaments and use your winnings to buy houses and means of transport to get you everywhere in Texas. The game brings a big smile to my face every time I play it. The characters are cute and have funny voices. Some of the other advantages of these adventure games are that they are mentally stimulating because they require a lot of strategy and problem solving, plus they are great for boosting your imagination.

Destinations For Adventure Lovers

A lot of people think about vacations as a time when they can totally relax and have fun, enjoy delicious food and drinks. However, adventure lovers always want a trip from which they can experience something really special and unique. If you are one of those who love adventurous trips, you can get to know some perfect places that can fulfill your desire.



Home of some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere on the planet, trips to Maui for adventure seekers often revolve around some of the gorgeous terrain that make up the mountainous regions of the island. Hiking through some of the primeval jungles of Maui can be awe-inspiring and can be the highlight of any trip to Hawaii. Outside of that, adventure-seekers will also be interested in the surfing that a Hawaii vacation has to offer that brings in people from all over the world.


Channel Islands

Located just off the coast of California, a trip to Santa Barbara or Los Angeles trip is not complete until you get to visit Channel Islands.

This chain of five islands is perfect for anyone looking for a paddling adventure and can be highlighted by sea caves, which dot the shore. Take an expert with you if you can and be sure to bring plenty of water and let someone know where you are when you're paddling around these magnificent islands.


Niagara Falls

This might a little outdated, but Niagara tours used to include a barrel and a whole lot of water. Now however, Niagara Falls tours are more likely to include a trip to this beautiful locale where you can see these raging waters up close and take in stories of adventures of the past.


The Galapagos Islands

The nice thing about a trip to The Galapagos Islands is that not only is this a great place to enjoy an adventurous vacation, but it can also be romantic.

Try snorkeling off the coast and enjoy the wildlife and aquatic life that resides just under the crisp ocean layer on a honeymoon or just go with some friends and enjoy the trip.


The Grand Canyon

Not that this needs much explanation, but trips to the Grand Canyon often include a helicopter ride over this giant chasm that's 18 miles wide, 277 miles long and 6,000 feet deep. After your helicopter ride, check out various places that'll allow other adventure, such as hiking or mule rides down into the canyon.



Likely our coldest mention, Alaska vacations often include cruises. However, our more adventurous travelers might be willing to hop in a small vessel to do a little exploring of their own. While this might not be much of an adventure, it sure brings you up close to parts of the world you probably haven't seen before and hopping in a small boat on an Alaska tour might be one of the more adventurous things you'll end up doing.
