Nissi Beach : Cyprus

October 2, 2010

The island of Cyprus is surrounded by the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea and has stunning scenery.

Nissi Beach with its lovely white sands and turquoise sea is a beautiful holiday resort. It has some bars and restaurants but is not as active as its neighbor Ayia Napa, for a more energetic night out, the resort of Ayia Napa is a short taxi ride away. Nearby is a superb water park with wild water rides.

Nissi Beach is located 45km east of Larnaca Airport and transfer times to the beach are approximately 1 hour.

Ayia Napa is a thriving resort and has a very lively nightlife, in July and August it is especially popular with the young and dynamic. The bars are open until about 1.30am then most of us head for the clubs which close around 4am.

Stunning young beauties fill the beach with some people in need for fat reduction treatment.

Rio de Janeiro visit

June 19, 2010

A marvelously complex and active city. The beaches are excellent, the entertainment endless, and the people are friendly. Every day appears to be a holiday.

Favorite beaches:
Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach, Leblon Beach. Sidewalk restaurants opposite the beaches. There are many cultural sites pertinent to the history of the country, of samba, and related music.

What’s really great:
The people are what makes Rio special. They are so happy and out-going and they know how to party. Especially on the weekends they spill out of the local bars and take over the streets stopping the traffic all together

Sightseeing:
Sugar Loaf Mountain, this is actually 2 cable car rides and cost 45 reals. Corcovado with Christ the Redeemer – check out the weather on the mountain before doing this trip. It may be clear when you set out but the clouds come in very quickly and you may not see a thing.

Don’t be suckered in to take a tour. They are a rip off!
You can get anywhere in the city for less than 1EURO on the local buses and then pay your own way in. Not only on the tour bus do they take forever picking up and dropping passengers off they also have to give the tour in at least 3 (heavily accented)and hard to understand languages. Avoid it at all costs.

Hangouts:
Pubs and stand-up drink stands are located on most of the off-streets.

Monaco luxury Yacht

April 20, 2010

Monaco and especially Monte-Carlo is a wonderful place to visit right now. The weather is great for going to the beach as well as just walking around.
Tulips in the streets of Monte-Carlo
Flowers are everywhere – Tulips in the streets and a great marina hosting luxury yachts from all over the world.
Marina view Monte-Carlo
The following pictures are of one of the biggest yachts in the world with enormous dimensions: 150 fits X 120 fits.

The yacht with area of 34000 square fits, with seating for 12 passengers and 20 crew is a “green” Yacht.

Using 9000 square fits sloar panels saves 25% of fuel consumption and 50% of electricity consumption on board.

Maximum luxury: Three decks, a 75 fit pool, a spa with hammam, sauna, gym and massage room, a music room, a dining room, a cinema, sun decks, suites, terraces, a lounge.

The suite of the owner: an area of 2000 Square fits and completely covers the third deck. (This is the bedroom) The sea view is great and there is a private terrace of 75 fits long. I like to have one like it:)
