I’m not going to tell you about the tastiest pizza and the beauty of the Amalfi Coast since everyone knows about these facts.

Men oh men, WHAT a crazy night! I slept in a traditional, primitive beehive in the rural area of Swaziland... No water, no shower, no "normal" toilet, no electricity. The beehive was COMPLETELY dark, that, when I opened my eyes in the middle of the night; I thought I was going blind. After a few hours of on-and-off sleep, a huge spider felt at home in the candle light we'd put on. Since it was fairly big and frightening, I had to face my fears and take the spider outside myself, while my dad was sleeping like a baby. Damn. What an adventure it was. In essence, I thought it was shocking to realize how spoilt we actually all are with having "easy" access to water, electricity, paved ways, bicycles, public transports and/or cars. It's so hard to put this into words or images, since that's always the case, and you will always think: "oh yes, that's so true and so sad..." But EXPERIENCING it in this way, brought a whole new perspective. I saw the true local life and, although they actually sounded content with their way of life, it's a vast reminder to be truly grateful with what I have. Or, that I'm a spoilt little brat who can't find relaxation in TRUE back to basics. FYI: circular living is a way of life here, not a hipster thing. In places like these, there's simply no other way. It's life.

Two bordering southern states in these United States. Two of the fastest growing states in the country right now. Florida is just slightly bigger. Both are two of the most ethnically diverse states in the country. 25.6% of those living in Florida identify as either Hispanic or Latino. 32.2% of those living in Georgia identify as African American. The largest cities in both are about the same size. Atlanta, in Georgia has a metropolitan population of about 5.9 million, and Miami, Florida, has a metro population of about 6.2 million. According to Forbes magazine, both have promising economic futures. The unemployment rate in both states is about the same. Top industries in Florida include tourism, agriculture, and international trade. Top industries in Georgia include agriculture as well, energy, and film. Wait...film? Huh? Yep, they film a lot more TV shows and movies in Georgia due to tax incentives. In fact, the only two states in the country that produce more big budget movies and TV shows is California and New York. Georgia will give 20% tax credits for big budget films...30% if the show or film shows its logo at the end of the credits. Both have similar percentages of citizens who got at least a bachelor’s degree or higher. Both are two of the oldest states in the country. However, Florida was settled by Europeans long before Georgia was. Most of the American Indian nations who resided historically in Florida and Georgia were wiped out due to disease brought over by the Spanish. Speaking of the Spanish, they had much more of a presence in Florida, controlling it off and on until 1819, after the United States basically just said, yeah it’s ours now. In 1565, the Spanish established St. Augustine in Florida, which today still exists and is the oldest city in the United States. In the 1700s, different American Indian tribes, notably the Muscogee, aka Creeks, moved into Florida. Over the years a new nation formed of these groups called the Seminole. The Seminole were well known for their resistance to American encroachment on their lands. The most notable American Indian nation in Georgia was the Cherokee, who lived fairly peacefully with Georgians until several of them wanted their land. Yeah, just like the Seminole, most of the Cherokee were eventually kicked out of Georgia, many sent via the infamous Trail of Tears. But about 100 years before that, Georgia was one of the original 13 British colonies and a place where American Indian land was respected. Founded by General James Oglethorpe in 1732, he wanted Georgia to be a place where English citizens who were imprisoned for debt, as well as “the worthy poor,” could start over. He was pretty strict with his rules in those early years, banning alcohol and even banning slavery.

Supporting Research with Theory I was asked: “how do you support your study relationship based on a theoretical or conceptual framework?” This video gets you to think about … 1) Is your question about a particular theory? 2) Is theory used to justify your question? 3) Is theory used to organize your findings? 4) Is your research about generating a new theory? 5) Is theory useful to explain the context or researcher stance? 6) Is a conceptual framework needed?

Now is the moment to visit this extraordinary land, scattered with gilded pagodas, where the traditional ways of Asia endure and areas previously off-limits are opening up. Surreal & Traditional In a nation with well over 100 ethnic groups, exploring Myanmar can often feel like you've stumbled into a living edition of the National Geographic, circa 1910! The country, for instance, has yet to be completely overwhelmed by Western fashion – everywhere you'll encounter men wearing skirt-like longyi, women smothered in thanakha (traditional make-up) and betel-chewing grannies with mouths full of blood-red juice. People still get around in trishaws and, in rural areas, horse and cart. Drinking tea – a British colonial affectation – is enthusiastically embraced in thousands of traditional teahouses. Simple Pleasures Thankfully, the pace of change is not overwhelming, leaving the simple pleasures of travel in Myanmar intact. You can still drift down the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River in an old river steamer, stake out a slice of beach on the blissful Bay of Bengal, or trek through pine forests to minority villages scattered across the Shan Hills without jostling with scores of fellow travellers. Best of all you'll encounter locals who are gentle, humorous, engaging, considerate, inquisitive and passionate – they want to play a part in the world, and to know what you make of their world. Now is the time to make that connection. The Ethical Dimension ‘This is Burma,' wrote Rudyard Kipling. ‘It is quite unlike any place you know about.’ Amazingly, over a century later, Myanmar retains the power to surprise and delight even the most jaded of travellers. Be dazzled by the 'winking wonder' of Shwedagon Paya. Contemplate the 4000 sacred stupas scattered across the plains of Bagan. Stare in disbelief at the Golden Rock at Mt Kyaiktiyo, teetering impossibly on the edge of a chasm. These are all important Buddhist sights in a country where pious monks are more revered than rock stars. Why I Love Myanmar By Simon Richmond, Author On a recent afternoon in Yangon I was invited into the shack-like home of Patrick, the great-grandson of Burma's last king. With his daughter he runs a humble English-language school in the shadow of Shwedagon Paya. As I chatted with this courteous, religious, eccentric man about his life, it underlined what I've always loved about Myanmar – meeting and sharing time with its charming people. Slow down, sit, listen and connect – it's the best way to appreciate what's truly golden about this land. Modernisation In 2013 Myanmar remained a Starbucks-free nation – but that could soon change. As the country makes tentative steps towards democracy, sanctions have been dropped and the world is rushing to do business here. In recent years conveniences such as mobile phone coverage, internet access and internationally linked ATMs have all improved or made their debut. Relaxing of censorship has led to an explosion of new media and an astonishing openness in public discussions of once-taboo topics, including politics. Swathes of the county, off-limits for years, can now be freely visited.

What It’s Like to be a Woman in Saudi Arabia. From choosing a husband to using public transit, lots of everyday things we're completely used to are prohibited for women in Saudi Arabia. According to the 2017 Gender Gap report by the World Economic Forum, Saudi Arabia ranks 138th out of 144, making it one of the harshest places for women to live as far as equal rights are concerned. Women aren’t allowed to move around freely. 1:34 In September 2017, the King of Saudi Arabia announced a major change in the law that will allow women to drive cars starting in June 2018. A woman will still need to get her guardian's permission to drive, though. Taking a train is allowed only in Riyadh, but women still have to use a separate car at the end of the train. As for bus companies, most of them refuse female passengers. In some regions, a woman who takes a cab without her guardian is considered immoral. They must be covered entirely. 2:38 When on out in public, women in Saudi Arabia cover their entire bodies, with the exception for their face, hands, and feet. A black abaya (a long dress with sleeves) and hijab (a head covering) are the only things a woman can wear. The clothes should be made from thick fabric and baggy so that they don’t highlight a woman’s curves. They don’t have much choice when it comes to work. 4:06 Women can choose to be doctors, nurses, and educators. Female politicians and lawyers are very rare exceptions. For women, it's much harder to build a career than for men since they’re paid less and don't get benefits like medical insurance. Women will never answer the door 5:55 Most houses in Saudi Arabia have two entrances: one for men and one for women. Women can hang out with their female friends but only in their half of the house. Male guests can only visit the other half of the house where women aren’t allowed. If a woman needs to tell her husband something, she can call him over the phone. There is no gender equality. 7:23 A Saudi woman’s word is two times less valuable than a man’s. Just to file a lawsuit, she needs 6 male witnesses. A child can never become a citizen of Saudi Arabia if his father is a foreigner. A man gets two times more when it comes to inheritance, and women in rural areas are usually excluded entirely from the lists of heirs. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS They can't go anywhere without a male escort. 0:41 They weren’t allowed to drive until recently. 1:34 They’re prohibited from using public transit. 2:07 Women must be covered entirely. 2:38 A college education, though not prohibited, isn't necessary. 3:32 Not many of them work, but that’s quickly changing. 4:06 Do Saudi women marry for love? 4:58 They'll never answer the door. 5:55 Boys go right, girls go left. 6:17 There is no gender equality. 7:23 Sports are for the boys. 7:53 Bonus: what if a woman breaks the rules? 8:24 SUMMARY -Women in Saudi Arabia don't have the right to go anywhere without their husband or a male relative that's called a Mahram. -Even though women are allowed to drive starting June 2018, they will still need to get their guardian's permission to drive. -Taking a train is allowed only in Riyadh, but women still have to use a separate car at the end of the train. -When on out in public, women in Saudi Arabia cover their entire bodies, with the exception for their face, hands, and feet. -Women are allowed to get a higher education, but there are a lot of limitations. -While only 12% of women worked in the private sector in 2011, nowadays this number is up to 30%. -Forced marriages are officially prohibited, but a contract between the future husband and the father of the bride is still necessary. -Most houses in Saudi Arabia have two entrances: one for men and one for women. -Society is split into female and male parts not only in the home but also in public places, like on the beach, in public transportation, and especially in restaurants since women need to remove their veil in order to eat. -A Saudi woman’s word is two times less valuable than a man’s. -The women of Saudi Arabia weren’t allowed to represent their country in the Olympic Games until 2012. But still, it's not easy for Saudi women to build a career in sports. -The religious police can punish a woman for simply talking to an unknown man or for wearing clothes that aren’t made from thick fabric.

In 2017, 27-year-old Cassie De Pecol set two Guinness World Records for the fastest travel around the world to every sovereign country. Join Cassie for an in depth look at how she did it, what it was like, and for the first time publicly, the real reason why she started the expedition. Cassie De Pecol is a world traveler, keynote speaker, brand ambassador, triathlete, activist, and entrepreneur. Born in 1989, she was raised and homeschooled in rural Connecticut. She enjoyed "out of the box" educational and multicultural experiences at various universities before deciding to begin her solo travels to 25 countries at the age of 21. In 2015, she started fresh, traveling alone to all 196 countries and securing two Guinness World Records.

Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Tourism may be international, or within the traveller's country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go "beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only", as people "traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure and not less than 24 hours, business and other purposes".Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country's balance of payments. Today, tourism is a major source of income for many countries, and affects the economy of both the source and host countries, in some cases being of vital importance.Tourism suffered as a result of a strong economic slowdown of the late-2000s recession, between the second half of 2008 and the end of 2009, and the outbreak of the H1N1 influenza virus, but slowly recovered. International tourism receipts (the travel item in the balance of payments) grew to US$1.03 trillion (€740 billion) in 2011, corresponding to an increase in real terms of 3.8% from 2010. International tourist arrivals surpassed the milestone of 1 billion tourists globally for the first time in 2012, emerging markets such as China, Russia, and Brazil had significantly increased their spending over the previous decade. The ITB Berlin is the world's leading tourism trade fair. Global tourism accounts for ca. 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

If you don’t want to get in trouble in foreign countries, fined or even arrested, pay attention to rules in different countries. Be careful – don't break the law! What do you put in your bag going on vacation? You buy insurance, make a photocopy of your passport, and put together a medical kit for any occasion. But a trip to some places might be not as peaceful as tourist tour guides say. Fatal diseases, venomous animals, and other dangers may appear on your way! We're going to tell you how to make your vacation comfortable, and how to make sure nothing spoils it. Share your travel stories in the comments and remember to give us a thumbs up! TIMESTAMPS Mexico 0:38 Colombia 1:41 Turkey 2:27 India 3:05 Egypt 3:45 Tunisia 4:52 South Africa 5:34 Ethiopia 6:48 Nigeria 7:46 Thailand 8:44 SUMMARY - There are 280 species of scorpion in Mexico! Though most of them aren't poisonous, some can kill a man with one bite. The water in Mexico isn't suitable for drinking. Even Mexican people themselves admit it. Buy bottled water only! - Colombia has a high crime level. If you catch a taxi on the street, you can get into trouble. Call a taxi from the hotel reception and only use the services of official operators, not private ones. - While in Turkey, you may encounter a traditional Turkish toilet, which looks like a hole in the floor. It is customary to wash your private parts with water there, so there may be no toilet paper, or you may need to pay an additional fee for it. - Women traveling to India are advised to respect local dress codes and to avoid walking alone at night. It can provoke sexual harassment on the streets, especially in rural areas and places, not popular with tourists. - The coral reefs of the Red Sea are home to the crown-of-thorns starfish. Its needles are poisonous and cause vomiting, dizziness, and skin inflammation. If you prick yourself on it, place the affected area into hot water, clean the wound, apply antiseptic, and consult a doctor. - Tunisia has a strict ban on photographing bridges, towers, and military objects. So before taking a picture of something, ask a law enforcement official for permission. - Be on your guard in the evening: there is a high level of crime here. Cape Town is considered the most dangerous city in the world. Don't walk around the slums alone. It's better to move around in a car at night. - Avoid border regions with Somali, Kenya, Sudan, and Eritrea. In the past, there was political unrest in these countries, and people were kidnapped. Travel in a group with a guide. - There are many poisonous snakes in Nigeria. Hippos, elephants, and crocodiles may be a danger as well. When you go for a walk, stay alert. Watch your step and don't approach animals. Don't pet or feed them. - Petty crimes are common in Thailand: cut or snatched bags, pickpockets, or rude taxi drivers. To avoid this, never show your valuables, look after your luggage and don't let anybody else take them, leave excess cash in a hotel room. Another thing is Box Jellyfish: 4 parallel brains, a basket ball size, and 5,000 stinging cells on its numerous (from 10 to 60), 6,5 ft long tentacles. This creature is the most toxic on our planet. You need to be cautious from July to October.

Six years of civil war has left most of Syria, a country once known for its ancient cities, in ruins. On the battlefield, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s forces continue to fight a loose, and increasingly diminished collection of anti-government rebels. While in the country’s east, coalition forces have crippled a once fearsome ISIS, driving the group from its strongholds. War continues to rattle much of the country, and peace remains a notion far off in the distance, but one thing has come into focus with each passing day: Assad isn’t going anywhere. To see what life is like under Assad’s rule, VICE New sent Isobel Yeung to Syria just as the final bombs were falling over Aleppo.

We found Bali’s most beautiful place in a hidden rice field in Sidemen Village. Never heard of Sidemen Bali? Not surprised, as it’s one of the most hidden spots in Bali! At the foot of Mount Agung, Sidemen Village in North Bali boasts the best Bali rice fields without ANY tourists like Tegallalang or Jatiluwih. Watch this video to see a Bali hotel tour, drone shots of the Bali volcano and some of the most relaxing places in Bali you could ever imagine. We were on the hunt for a Bali rice terrace that wasn’t crowded with tourists. We wanted to explore an undiscovered Bali that nobody has covered on Youtube yet. We found that in Sidemen Village. First we’ll share with you the best hotel in Bali that we’ve stayed in called Abian Ayu Villa. Overlooking Mount Agung, our Bali rice field villa had the most incredible views. After the room tour, it’s time to explore. If you’re looking for an Ubud alternative, we highly suggest Sidemen as part of Bali not many have discovered yet. Without maps or pinned locations, we were able to find a local Bali village’s water system that irrigates the entire towns rice fields. We took a small hike to find a river running deep in the middle of the North Bali forest just waiting to be discovered. Next up, what you’ve been waiting for: The best of Bali. One of the most hidden spots in Bali, the unnamed rice terraces we found in Sidemen Village were some of the most incredible sights we’ve seen so far on our travels throughout South East Asia. If this isn’t Bali’s most beautiful place, we don’t know what is. Similar to the hotel, the rice terraces overlook Mount Agung and you are set in a rural Balinese village with the only inhabitants being local workers and the occasional chicken. We thought this was so much more special than trying to travel Bali based off popular blog posts and tourist locations. There is something really amazing about discovering a place that is off the beaten place. The real Bali. Although Sidemen Village is still a part of undiscovered Bali, we’re confident that it won’t be hidden for long. You can still travel to Sidemen Bali and see the local life, experience incredible scenery, and have the place practically all to yourself. We think that Sidemen village should be on your list of top places in Bali if you’re an adventure seeker and enjoy spots that are off the beaten path. Don’t worry, Sidemen still has wifi and a few infinity pools because, hey, you’re still on vacation right? ;) Let us know if this hidden rice field in Bali would make your Bali most beautiful places list! We can recommend both the area and the hotel to you guys 100%. Make sure to check out Sidemen Bali, as we don’t think it will be a part of Bali secret places for long. Make sure to subscribe for more videos in Bali Indonesia and we would love to hear your plans to travel Bali down below in the comments. * We’re Ryan & Stacia from DeathbyVlog.

Indian rural village life - Indian women working in paddy field, buses, trucks are passing by and camel carts carrying heavy loads... India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia. Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium CE and also helped shape the region's diverse culture. Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom from the mid-19th century, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi. The Indian economy is the world's tenth-largest by nominal GDP and third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). Following market-based economic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies; it is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, corruption, malnutrition, inadequate public healthcare, and terrorism. A nuclear weapons state and a regional power, it has the third-largest standing army in the world and ranks eighth in military expenditure among nations. India is a federal constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories. India is a pluralistic, multilingual, and a multi-ethnic society. It is also home to a diversity of wildlife in a variety of protected habitats.

THE RUNDOWN | Tunisia's prime minister recently appointed Jewish businessman Rene Trabelsi as tourism minister. He is the first Jew to serve in the Tunisian cabinet in decades. What does this say about the success of the Arab Spring in Tunisia? Is there hope for closer ties with Israel? Where is the country headed from here? Former U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia Jake Walles analyzes. Story: In a turning point for Tunisia, Jewish Businessman Rene Trabelsi is named minister of tourism. 'I think my nomination is a message. I was told by people in government that it was time for someone from the a Tunisian Jew from the private sector to take over the tourism ministry,' Tabelsi explains. 'We have a lot of talented people here in Tunisia, but Tunisian Jews, as you know, have more than 3,000 years of history behind them.' Once a vibrant community of over 100,000 individuals, home to hundreds of synagogues, Jewish scholars and newspapers, Tunisia's Jewish population decreased dramatically in the 1950s and 60s. The establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 sparked a harsh reaction in the Arab world, causing Jews to leave Tunisia en masse due to the hostile environment. And what is now left of that community is 700-2,000 individuals. But Trabelsi's appointment as the first Jewish minister in decades may mark a shift in the way Tunisia views its minorities. 'I think Tunisia has always been at the forefront of being open and sort of also for instance giving women a bigger and stronger role as compared to other countries in the Arab world,' Monclair State University Assistant Professor Arnaud Kurze says. The businessman had worked to highlight Tunisia's vibrant Jewish heritage and gained acclaim for an organizer for an annual pilgrimage to the oldest synagogue in Africa. 'There should be no restrictions on tourism in Tunisia. People from everywhere should be able to come here. Tunisia is not a seasonal tourism country,' Trabelsi says. And just eight years after uprisings in Tunisia, which brought an end to the reign of president Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, the economy faces a rocky road to recovery. 'Today, we can see that in six or seven years only, Tunisia has already recovered. Tourism is working once more, and tourists are flocking into Tunisia. This means Tunisia is different from other Arab countries, or even European countries,' Trabelsi explains. With Trabelsi's appointment comes some hope Tunisia will establish diplomatic ties with the Jewish state of Israel. 'Look, it is a sensitive subject and a purely political matter. As Rene Trabelsi, minister of tourism, I have to follow the line of my government. I would add that Tunisia has been historically committed to peace in the Middle East, since the time of Bourguiba, to today, even during the Ben Ali period,' Taebsli states. He adds, 'The Palestinian cause is close to our hearts — that is true, and we have served it well. But our message is to look for peace. The notion of peace is very important in Tunisian culture.' And experts say this hope may still be out of grasp. 'Probably, from an Israeli perspective, the one thing Tunisians remain united around is the opposition to any form of normalization with Israel right now,' claims Hebrew University's Daniel Zisenwine. But Trabelsi remains hopeful for the future of Tunisia. 'There is one challenge in 2019: We have to inspire hope and trust for Tunisia in Tunisians.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Masia 00:01:58 1 FC Barcelona 00:02:25 2 Images Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= A masia (Catalan pronunciation: [məˈzi.ə], plural masies; Aragonese: pardina is a type of rural construction common to all the old Crown of Aragon: Catalonia, Valencian Community, Aragon, Languedoc and Provence (in the south of France). The estate in which the masia is located is called a mas. They are often large but isolated structures, nearly always associated with a family farming or livestock operation. Through the ages, the materials used to construct masies varied, often determined by their location. In mountainous areas, rough stone was often used, except for doorways, windows and arches, where stone was worked. During the Middle Ages, mud was used as mortar, though later on it was replaced by quicklime or cement. In places where stone was hard to come by, adobe was more common as a construction material. For the most part, masies are oriented to the south. Constructions older than 16th century have an arched main entrance while those built after the 18th century usually have lintel entrances. Masies were typically constructed with wooden beams placed perpendicular to the facade and covered by tiles. In the Pyrenees and other mountainous areas, the roofing would often be made of slate. They tended to be at least two-story buildings, with the ground floor reserved for farming tasks and even housing livestock, with the upper floor reserved for the family's living quarters. If there was a floor above that, it would often be used as a granary, or occasionally to house pigeons. Occasionally, masies include an annexed private chapel. In modern times, many masies have been converted into residential villas, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, or centers for rural tourism. Some house museums (i.e. Vil·la Joana, Jujol Centre - Can Negre) or have been restored and adapted for cultural uses. Some early works of the Catalan painter Joan Miró depict his family's own masia as well as Catalan peasants.

Should you ever want to visit North Korea, you’d be entering a world where you can’t even take pictures freely. Your visit would be micromanaged to the point where you’d only see the positive side of the country, and not even be allowed to make a negative comment without the threat of prison. If that’s how visiting is like, living there must be even more intense. But if you’re part of a wealthy family in North Korea, then you live in a completely different world. In a country where poverty is the norm, being rich makes you a different breed of people with a different set of rules and privileges! With so many rules in North Korea, it’s all about finding the little things that you can use to show off just how much money you have!

Tourism in this area is not as pronounced as it is in other parts of the country, as regular bus routes, accommodations and detailed info is hard to find. But in this seclusion lies the attraction and a special charm. During my last trip I met very few travelers from Europe and North America. The locals welcomed me warmly and most attractions were not crowded. After traveling this route twice via hitchhiking I thought it is about time that I put together a handy Carretera Austral guide which highlights the main sights along this 1200km long road. The video shows you my favorite places to visit from north to south, starting in Puerto Montt and finishing in Villa O’Higgins. To do the Ruta 7 properly I recommend about 2 weeks - following I list all the places I visited & Things to do along the Carretera Austral: - Fjords, Hornopiren, Pumalin Park, Chaiten - Queulat National Park, Queulat Glacier, Puyuhuapi - Rio Futaleufu, Futaleufu - Cerro Castillo, Villa Cerro Castillo - Marble Caves & Lago General Carrera, Puerto Rio Tranquilo - Exploradores Glacier, Puerto Rio Tranquilo - Rio Baker, Cochrane - Caleta Tortel - Villa O'Higgins - O’Higgins Glacier ---About the Patagonia Expedition--- The Patagonian Expedition is a 95% self funded video documentary project following my trip in 2012/2013. Our aim is to show you the beauty of the rather unknown parts in Patagonia alongside with the famous spots.

Documentary cinema is a mind-broadening medium which is at the forefront of the process of helping the evolution of humanity's consciousness. It does it by its intention to examine and to pay close attention to the minute details of the human condition in documentaries like this one. This work in progress shows a deep involvement in exploring how individual people and isolated communities cope with their circumstances in today's world. A portrait of a day in the life of a Lamani village in Hampi in the state of KARNATAKA, India. A reflection on the experience of life among a tribe who continue to resist acculturation. The Banjaras also was known as Lamani people in central India, originally from Rajasthan in ancient time they were nomads. Centuries ago they worked for the Moghuls invaders as the carriers since in the old time there was no transportation transporting good like salt, food, and arms, setting up their camps on the outskirts of army encampments all over India. When the campaigns ended, the Banjaras/ Lamani moved from their desert home based in Rajasthan and settled down in the Deccan. Geographically the Deccan extends over eight Indian states, covering most of central and southern India. Well built and strong the Banjaras/ Lamani found service in places like the state of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. Today due to the spread of communicationsand means of transportation, the Banjara/Lamani lifestyle has naturally altered and the tribals have had to abandon their packs of animals and take to working as laborers in rural areas and also work on building and construction projects. Despite all this, their traditional customs, manners, and ceremonies have undergone little change.They move wherever work is available, set up their temporary hamlets and build simple homes of mud and bamboo plaits. They keep very few domestic possessions and make do with earthen vessels, small quilts, bamboo and date mats and some rickety wooden articles. Brass and copper vessels are only recent additions and even these are very few in each family their resources are limited. They work for survival. Fond of festivals and domestic celebrations, the Banjaras/ Lamani revel on occasions, especially during the Festival of Holi and Dassara when the event is a community affair. Vey independent, the women get together and go from house to house in other villages collecting donations singing and dancing all the way. Family deities are worshipped on such occasions. Banjaras share some of the religious beliefs of the Hindus. Song and dance come naturally to these tribal women. Dances and songs also form an integral part of the Banjara/ Lamani celebration during the festival of Holi. As a tradition liquor is distributed freely to the women when they visit the houses of the Indians on Holi. The welcome is accompanied by offering paan-supari (betel leaves and nut) according to the custom in Hampi, Karnataka. This is a segment of a work in progress as we continue filming and sharing more segments online we'd love to have your feedback. Particularly if you have ideas about other people and events that we could include.We want this to be a collaborative enterprise that Beny would have approved of, so do leave your comments below.

Thank you! :) On the last day of our trip in Wuhan, we managed to go to Hubu Alley which is known to be Wuhan's street food alley catered for tourist and travelers alike. We then went out to East Lake Greenway, a park consists of 12 lakes in general, which was quite impressive. All of us cycled around the park under the bright sun and had our endorphin boosted! We head out to our lunch together before visiting the famous Yellow Crane Tower. It was a fun day experiencing a little bit of Wuhan here and there. The trip was ended at Henkou which is an intersection between Yangtze river and Han river. -PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/syifaadriana -PAYPAL: https://www.paypal.me/asyifaadriana -INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/syifaadriana -EMAIL: [email protected] -FREE $40 AIR-BNB CREDIT: https://www.airbnb.com.sg/c/aadriana6 -BOOK ACCOMMODATION: https://www.booking.com/s/56_6/syifaa63 -HOW I ACCESS YOUTUBE IN CHINA: http://www.linkev.com/?a_fid=syifaadriana ABOUT ME -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello there! If you make it this far, welcome! I am Syifa, an Indonesian female solo traveler, who started solo traveling in 2014. I enjoy budget traveling by staying with locals, motorbike riding but also like to explore local food. After working for the government till 2016, I left Indonesia to pursue long-term traveling. As naive as I was, it only lasted me for 5 months throughout Asia. In January 2017 I moved to China for an English teaching job, which was considered to be my first living abroad experience. Stayed until May 2018, living in China has changed me, in a good way. I love traveling and creating travel videos on Youtube. It is such a rewarding work for me that I do wish this would last me for a while.

http://www.engvid.com/ In English, we often need to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of something. You will definitely need to do this at work, on tests such as the IELTS and TOEFL, and also in everyday conversation. In this lesson, you will learn words that have the same meaning as "advantage" and "disadvantage", such as "drawback", "downside", "positive aspect", "benefit", and many more. After watching, take our quiz to make sure you understood. There are many advantages to watching this video! Come and improve your vocabulary by learning these synonyms in a very short time. http://www.engvid.com/vocabulary-advantages-disadvantages/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you some new words. I'm going to teach you some words that mean "good" or "advantage" and some words that mean "bad" or "disadvantage". Now, these words are very, very important if you are planning on writing the TOEFL test, the IELTS test, if you plan to go to university or college, or just for general conversation. Okay? So it's very important you learn multiple ways to talk about advantages and disadvantages. Okay. So let's get started. First of all, I would like to teach you some synonyms of the word "advantage". Okay? And maybe, we can work on your pronunciation. You can repeat after me as I say each word. So my first word here is "advantage", which most of you probably know. It means -- similar to "good". "An advantage of living in Toronto is you get to meet people from all over the word." Okay? So it's a good thing. Similarly, a "benefit" is another good thing. It has the same meaning as the word "advantage". "A benefit of living in Toronto is you get to eat food from all over the word." Another word we could say is "is positive aspect". "A positive aspect of living in Toronto is you get to visit the CN tower, which is a very interesting building." "A good point about living in Toronto is we have a great transportation system." For those of you who live in Toronto, you might think of that as a joke. Okay. "An argument in favor of living in Toronto is the people here are very polite and friendly." Okay? So these are all considered good things about living in Toronto. We can use all of these words to describe the things we love about Toronto. Okay? So I want you to take a moment to think about your city or your village or your town. What could you say that's about it about where you live? Can you think of an advantage, a benefit, a positive aspect, a good point, an argument in favor of where you live? Okay? So now, let's look at some of the bad things, the disadvantages. Okay? So the first word we'll use is "disadvantage". Let's think about living in a city in general. "A disadvantage of living in a city is -- maybe it's very busy." Maybe it's very noisy. Okay? So these are problems with living in a city. "A drawback of living in a city" -- again, you could say it's crowded. There's too much pollution. These are drawbacks. Some people have an objection to living in a city. Maybe there's not enough green space; there's not enough environment living in a city. "A negative effect of living in a city is -- maybe you feel stressed out." Maybe you have a lot of stress because of all the noise. "A downside of living in a city is -- maybe, you know, you're not getting fresh air because of the pollution." "A frequent criticism of living in a city is, again -- maybe it takes a very long time to get anywhere if you live in a very big city." Maybe there's a bad transportation system. So this might be a frequent criticism. Now, for this word specifically, I really want to work on the pronunciation because of this "ism". I know a lot of students from Brazil, a lot of students from South America, Central America, and Europe pronounce this a little bit differently than we do in English. So we would say "criticism". Okay. Can you say that? "Criticism". Okay? So this actually almost becomes like "izum". Okay? So that would be a frequent criticism. Finally, we can also talk about "an argument against". "An argument against living in the city is -- maybe you can't have farm animals." Maybe you love chickens and hens and pigs, but in the city, you can't have them. Okay? So these are all disadvantages of living in a city or disadvantage words. Whereas these are all advantage words. Okay. So let's do a couple of practices with you. I want you to fill in this blank spot with one of these words. Okay? So let's start with positive. So I want you to say this out loud. So pick one of these. "Blank -- of living in a city is it's exciting." "A good point of living in a city is it's exciting." "A benefit of living in a city is it's exciting." Okay?

Hima is an ancient practice used by rural communities in Lebanon to ensure economic cooperation, sustainability and equitable resource management. Rural women have traditionally played key leadership and decision-making roles in the Hima community model. Today, one conservation-minded organisation – the Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL) – is reviving the ancient Hima approach to help rural women reassert their traditional leadership roles in community life. With support from UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality, SPNL is supporting rural Lebanese women and local municipalities to become partners and champions of the environment by promoting local ownership of sustainable resource management. This video follows the story of Nahla Sukkari, a Hima woman from Lebanon’s Bekaa region. This video is part of the knowledge initiative of UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality “Building Resilience in Fragility: Women’s Empowerment in Action” supported by the Government of Japan.

The lines or networks operated by tramcars are called tramways. Historically the term electric street railways was also used in the United States. In the United States, the term tram has sometimes been used for rubber-tyred trackless trains, which are not related to the other vehicles covered in this article. Tram vehicles are usually lighter and shorter than main line and rapid transit trains. Today, most trams use electrical power, usually fed by a pantograph sliding on an overhead line; older systems may use a trolley pole or a bow collector. In some cases by a contact shoe on a third rail is used. If necessary, they may have dual power systems—electricity in city streets, and diesel in more rural environments. Occasionally, trams also carry freight. Trams are now commonly included in the wider term "light rail", which also includes grade-separated systems. Some trams, known as tram-trains, may have segments that run on mainline railway tracks, similar to interurban systems. The differences between these modes of rail transport are often indistinct, and a given system may combine multiple features. One of the advantages over earlier forms of transit was the low rolling resistance of metal wheels on steel rails, allowing the animals to haul a greater load for a given effort. Problems included the fact that any given animal could only work so many hours on a given day, had to be housed, groomed, fed and cared for day in and day out, and produced prodigious amounts of manure, which the streetcar company was charged with disposing of. Electric trams largely replaced animal power in the late 19th and early 20th century. Improvements in other forms of road transport ...

Tourism may be international, or within the traveller's country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go "beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only", as people "traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure and not less than 24 hours, business and other purposes".Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country's balance of payments. Tourism suffered as a result of a strong economic slowdown of the late-2000s recession, between the second half of 2008 and the end of 2009, and the outbreak of the H1N1 influenza virus, but slowly recovered. International tourism receipts (the travel item in the balance of payments) grew to US$1.03 trillion (€740 billion) in 2011, corresponding to an increase in real terms of 3.8% from 2010. International tourist arrivals surpassed the milestone of 1 billion tourists globally for the first time in 2012, emerging markets such as China, Russia, and Brazil had significantly increased their spending over the previous decade. The ITB Berlin is the world's leading tourism trade fair. Global tourism accounts for ca. 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
