Tourist Locations and Delights Of Alappuzha May 09

Alappuzha, better known as the Venice of the East is an important tourist location in India; in fact a pearl in India’s tourist map. Rich in cultural history, Alappuzha even had trade relations with Greece and Rome in BC and in the Middle Ages. A land that veins itself with stretches of backwaters fringed by coconut palms; labyrinth of lakes, lagoons and freshwater rivers makes it an exotic tourist location.

The most delightful experience at Alappuzha is of course it houseboat cruises. The houseboats moving silent, un-disturbing the waters are the ones that evolved from the Kettuvallams of the olden times. The Kettuvallams (boats with knots) are nothing but boats held together with coir knots, they were used as rice barges capable to carry tonnes of rice or spices.

But now, these traditional barges have transformed to peaceful water-habitats with all the creature comforts of a nature inspired hotel that floats on water with facilities including furnished bedrooms, modern toilets, cozy living rooms, kitchen and balcony for angling.

Boating on these houseboats, one can enjoy a peaceful voyage along Kerala’s famed palm-lined backwaters through the quiet, water-bound villages and the state’s lush rice bowl, Kuttanad, is a peaceful dip along the simple lifestyle of the people here which is far cry away the busy crowds of the people in the cities of India. Top tourist attraction is the annual boat race, Nehru Trophy Boat Race featuring snake boats racing each other in the Punnamada lake. Read the rest of this entry »

Celebrity Yacht Vacations This Summer Aug 05

The hottest trend this year in celebrity summer vacays seems to be leading our favorite entertainment, music, and sports stars out to the high seas.  Rather than jet setting to the most exotic or tropical summer locale, celebrities this summer are enjoying the bounty of the sea and the beauty of the world’s coastlines vis a vis renting out luxury yachts.  In true celebrity fashion, not only do they get to cruise around the world’s oceans, but they get to ride in style aboard these super and mega yachts, steaming in the sauna or swimming in the pool as they pull into port.

The Beckham’s, famed soccer star David and lauded singer Victoria “Posh,” have caught the yachting bug.  The couple borrowed designer Roberto Cavalli’s self-named one hundred and thirty-three foot yacht to enjoy their summer, family vacation.  The yacht is estimated to be worth about thirty two million dollars and has also been rented out to other more than familiar faces like Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, and Mariah Carey.  And like the ship’s owner, the ship itself stands out amongst the crowd – painted in iridescent shades of purple, gold, and green.  And the inside matches the outside, furniture decorated in conflicting animal prints and covered with the designer’s monogram.

Protective eyewear, the best accessory investment on your boat Jun 10

Eyeglasses should by no means be forgotten when yachting or sailing. We are saying this because when sailing or yachting, we always tend not to forget the important pieces of accessories which will both make us look better and feel safe and protected. The most important of these is a nice protective pair of eyeglasses.

However, when we talk about eyeglasses, we are talking about eyeglasses in general, whether it would be a nice pair of yachting sunglasses or prescription glasses really depends on the conditions and your current needs.
