Fly From U.S. to Europe 69$ Coming Soon

Image
Norwegian air will offer soon (cheap flights) one way ticket only 69$ from U.S. airports to Europe in early 2017. Norwegian air Chief Executive Officer, said that in an interview Tuesday.
Europe's third biggest budget airline is considering flights to Edinburgh and Bergen, Norway from U.S. airports that have a few to no global service, such as New York's Westchester County Airport and Connecticut's Bradley International Airport
Median prices on such routes are likely to be nearer to $300 round trip, compared with many of the Norwegian's fears that feed more than $500 today because of higher fees levied by busier airports.
The possible designs are part of the Norwegian's broader move to cut prices and take share from traditional flag carriers that dominate trans-Atlantic flying. While airlines such as Deutsche Lufthansa AG offer travelers hundreds of destinations via connections in airport hubs, Norwegian is aiming to create a nonstop service to small cities that strad…

I Take My Wolfdog On Epic Adventures Because I Hate To See Dogs Locked Away

Image
I’m often surprised by how much joy animals can bring into our lives. Even more, the joy that comes from healthy relationships with them is really amazing. It seems hard to describe so I typically don’t try. Loki’s Instagram is really the product of that hard-to-describe emotion. Additionally, I believe dogs aren’t meant to live out their lives in a backyard or inside a house. I hate to see that. I hope we are inspiring people to get out, explore our world, and make memories with their pups.












Walking on water in Slovakia

Image
Walking on water sounds like the stuff of miracles, but there’s nothing supernatural at work in the clip above. Watch as two hikers in Slovakia’s High Tatra Mountains walk across a lake that’s frozen so clearly, they look to be walking on water.
Tomas Nunuk posted the clip on 8 December. Since then, the footage has garnered more than three million views, with some viewers expressing both astonishment and scepticism.
"This is a good example of how beautiful the world can be when it’s not tainted by humans," said YouTube user Tyler Wolff.
Chloe Bateman, on the other hand, questioned the authenticity of the 0:39-long video: "surely you would record this for longer if in fact it was legit."
Several scientists have come to the video’s defence, including meteorologist Meghan Mussoline. “Clear ice is about twice as strong as white ice, since it is more dense,” she explained in an Accuweather video. “The ice on the frozen lake in the Slovakian Mountains was likely sufficiently…

Man who traveled to every country on earth explains the most difficult places to visit and why

Image
travel reviews in Last summer, my Royal Air Maroc flight from Casablanca landed at Malabo International Airport in Equatorial Guinea, and I completed a 50-year mission: I had officially, and legally, visited every recognized country on earth.
This means 196 countries: the 193 members of the United Nations, plus Taiwan, Vatican City, and Kosovo, which are not members but are, to varying degrees, recognized as independent countries by other international actors. 
In five decades of traveling, I’ve crossed countries by rickshaw, pedicab, bus, car, minivan, and bush taxi; a handful by train (Italy, Switzerland, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, and Greece); two by riverboat (Gabon and Germany); Norway by coastal steamer; Gambia and the Amazonian parts of Peru and Ecuador by motorized canoe; and half of Burma by motor scooter.
I rode completely around Jamaica on a motorcycle and Nauru on a bicycle. I’ve also crossed three small countries on foot (Vatican City, San Marino, and Liechtenstein)…

Scotland's North Coast 500: A high road to the roof of Britain

Image
Blistered and savage, lonely and unspoiled, the new 500-mile tourist route is an enchanting expedition for Mark Rowe and family
Think of the world's great road trips – the Amalfi Coast, the corniche of the Côte d'Azur, the Great Ocean Road, the Pacific Coast Highway, Route 66 ... And yet I haven't even boarded a plane to get my fix of high-road thrills, of driving into emptiness and – sometimes – thin air. A few hours out of Inverness, my mind is reeling from a road trip utterly removed from the humdrum suburban world of bypasses, dual carriageways and motorway traffic jams.

It's taken nearly four hours to drive barely 40 miles towards and then away from the tiny village of Lochinver, perched high on the north-west coast of Scotland. The journey has involved a stomach-lifting, topsy-turvy drive along the B869, a road fetchingly – and not frivolously – known as the Wee Mad Road of Sutherland, where switchbacks and severe ups and downs lift us past wild coastal scenery.

Galway voted world's friendliest city - Nos. 3 and 4 aren't bad either

Image
Remarkably, Dublin placed third and Cork fourth in the same poll. The three Irish cities dominate the prestigious, New York-based magazine's list of destinations "that know how to charm". The World's 10 Friendliest Cities GalwayCharleston, South CarolinaDublinCorkSiem Reap, CambodiaAuckland, New ZealandMelbourne, AustraliaSydney, AustraliaEdinburgh, ScotlandSavannagh, Georgia “The hospitality and the humor of Ireland’s people makes it a perfect destination,” one Travel + Leisure reader said. Another claimed Galway was home to the “friendliest people [they had] ever met.” "Galway won readers’ hearts with its festive nature, lively population, and musicality," according to the magazine. "Fiddlers and banjo-players, flautists and whistlers bang out traditional Irish reels on pedestrian streets and in all the pubs. And no wonder! It’s known countrywide (and beyond) as the 'most Irish' city.” Of Ireland's capital, the magazine had the following t…

FROM lush, thick jungle to dramatic mountain ranges and glistening white sand beaches, the Philippines is home to more than 7000 idyllic islands, waiting to be explored. But how does one choose their little slice of paradise? We’ve picked nine of our favourite islands in the Philippines so you don’t have to. 1.
