Fiji Country Profile

If you fly directly east from northern Queensland for 2500 kilometres, you will be over Fiji. Looking down, you would see more than 800 islands – some large enough to hold thousands of people, others are very small. About 100 of these island are inhabited. If you flew down to 1323 metres while over the island of Viti Levu, you might hit the top of Tomanivi, Fiji’s highest peak. South-east of Tomanivi is Suva, the capital of Fiji. Main cities include Nadi, Sigatoka and Lautoka on Viti Levu and Labasa and Savusavu on Vanua Levu.

Things To Do In Andorra

Andorra is lank-locked tightly between France and Spain deep into the center of the Pyrenees. It is really only 180 square-miles, which tends to make it the 6th smallest country in Europe. There is suggestion that the name comes from the Arabic al-Dorra, which signifies forest but little is definitely known of its name. The country became an entity unto itself officially in 1288, when the surrounding rulers formulated the principality but still all co-inhabited the mountainous area none the less. It actually wasnt until very recently in 1993 that France loosened its reigns enough for Andorra to turn into an independent state. There are now seven parishes that all each have their own mini-governments and govern law and order for their inhabitants.

As being a tourist in An...

Classic Cambodia Travel

Flow and pacing – the heart and soul of any winning trip – are often overlooked in international travel. This holds especially true when experiencing the Angkor temples in Cambodia.

Most visitors allow only a couple days to explore these magnificent stone monuments. In no time, theyre thoroughly templed-out and do not gain a meaningful understanding of the civilization behind their construction. And more importantly, they havent had fun!

Smart travelers should devote a week to Cambodia, a nation reemerging as a must-see travel destination. Getting there has never been easier via newly paved roads from Thailand and Vietnam and lots of daily flights into Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

Over the course of many trips, Ive compiled a roadmap for experiencing Cambodia over the course ...

Iowa State

Iowa State University is well known for their technology programs and research, producing some of the world’s leading theorists, writers, and even astronauts, but what of their sports programs? The Cyclones of Iowa State compete in the Big 12 Conference of the NCAA’s 1st Division, a conference generally recognized to be one of the weaker ones in the NCAA, and it’s safe to say their sports program doesn’t have quite the lustre that their academic pursuits do. In fact their men’s baseball and swimming teams recently got shelved due to budget constraints, leaving the school with just 6 men’s teams, while still fielding 10 women’s teams...

Bolivia – Natural Gas Wealthy

The South American nation of Bolivia is second only to Venezuela in natural gas reserves in South America; third to the United States in the Western Hemisphere. The way these large supplies are managed, distributed, and moderated changed on May 1, 2006, when Bolivian President Evo Morales revoked all allowance of private companies capitalizing on Bolivia’s natural gas rich land. Until that day, private companies such as the Brazilian company, Petrobas, and American company, Exxon Mobile, had been allowed to amass much wealth by exploiting Bolivia’s bountiful natural gas reserves. Morales reflected this idea, remarking, “the time has come, the awaited day, a historic day in which Bolivia retakes absolute control of our natural resources...

Travel destination in India

 

Delhi –
Laid out by British architect Edwin Lutyens, the Indian capital is a striking modern metropolis. A gracious contrast to Old Delhi’s winding streets, the grand avenues and stately buildings of New Delhi are rich with history and culture, from Gandhi’s Delhi home (and the site of his assassination) to the tomb of Humayun, a complex of Mughal buildings reminiscent of the Taj Mahal. Chaotic traffic is best left to the locals. Negotiate a good price for taxis or travel on the new Delhi Metro.

Taj Mahal Agra
Built by a grief stricken Emperor Shah Jehan as a memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaj Mahal , the Taj Mahal has a structural elegance and pristine beauty that has been rarely matched .

It took 20 thousand men nearly 22 years to build the mausoleum and the fines...
