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 »

Tools on 18th Century Convict Ships Sep 20

18 century pleasure boatingBack in the middle of the 18th Century, the jails in Britain were absolutely overflowing, there were so many criminals locked up. Believe it or not, but roughly 150 different crimes could get you the death sentence back then, so there were more people waiting for the gallows than could actually be hanged!

You may have heard that Australia was used as almost a prison island – well, this is how that started. Because there simply wasn’t enough room for all the convicts, we started to ship them overseas in specialised “convict ships”. These ships had their own unique tools, which were of course rather different to what we’re used to nowadays. Here are some of the most commonly used ones.

Torture Devices

Yes, sadly, we were still into torturing prisoners in those days. A number of the bigger convict ships had a selection of different torture devices built in to them, and the ship masters were often all too keen to make good use of them while they could. Read the rest of this entry »

Things to Consider When Chartering a Yacht Jul 04

Getting away on a yacht with your family or friends is a fun vacation idea. Although, just like land-based vacations, you have to consider many things in order to find the right yacht, and make your vacation a success. Here are some of them:

chartering a yacht

Budget
Budget is something that is too important to miss. Remember that there are a lot of agencies that offer charter services around the world. It’s easy to get confused with this variation, so the best thing to do is to look out yachts through their rates. This can narrow down your list, making your decision making easier than you imagined it to be. Word to the wise, though: don’t go for a big yacht if your group is under fifteen. The bigger the yacht, the more it will cost.

Kinds of yacht
As part of the planning process, you will have to decide on which kind of yacht that you will use for your trip. Learn about the different kinds of yacht available first. Then, pick the yacht that can accommodate the specific requirements of your group. “These (sailing) yachts are great for a family holiday, a fun adventure with friends as well as racing charters. It is also possible to charter a few sailing yachts to accommodate larger groups for flotillas or team building activities,” says SailingEurope.com.

Facilities
Obviously, the yacht that you will rent will serve as your home during your sea adventure. So, as much as possible, you want it to be as comfortable and safe as possible. Find out if the yacht has the amenities that you would expect to see such as full kitchen, entertainment center, and Jacuzzi, among others. Wi-Fi is another essential offering that you should not overlook.

Having Wi-Fi access while on board allows you to become updated about news from the mainland, including lottery results. New lottery winners Richard and Cathy Brown can attest to this claim. On the sixth day of their 10-week sailing trip around Britain, the retired couple found out through an app that their numbers came up, and that they have £6,123,395 winnings. Aside from apps, you can also visit lottery.net/ with a stable internet connection. This website features the latest lottery numbers from all of the major lottery draws worldwide, which means that regardless of your location, you can access the results back home even while in the middle of the sea.
