The Canals of Venice, Italy
On many peoples bucket lists (including mine) is seeing a Solar and Lunar eclipse, but where to see one?
They are not region or continent specific, they are not nice easy predicable annual events like lets say – St Patrick’s Day. In fact they seem to appear at completely random times in completely random places. So how do you see one?
First decide what type of Eclipse you want to see:
Most nights, just as I turn out the light and try to relax into sleep, my mind devoid of usual daily focuses, floods itself with a jumble of discarded thoughts that have been shunted to the back during the day. Worries, things to do, things to remember; they all come swimming back.
Train Travel is one of the best ways to get around China. It is a vast country and trains are efficient and reliable; they are the most popular way to travel in China. They are much cheaper than planes and the slower ones have smoking areas.
Whales are amazing creatures. They are the largest animals on planet earth today. Some types of whales are such giants that they put the size of the dinosaurs to shame.
Humpback whales, which you can swim with in Tonga, are around 12–16 metres (39–52 ft) long and weigh about 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb).
