Beauty of Fisherman’s Wharf

In Uncategorized on October 18, 2010 by qiam2020

Fisherman’s Wharf acquired its name during the Gold Rush when an Italian emigrant had moved in the area and started casting a line for Dungeness Crab. Up until now the place used to be the home of San Francisco’s fishing fleet. Even as the years have passed Fisherman’s Wharf still retains its heritage as the home of fishermen and their fleets.

Tips for Last-Minute Travelers

In Uncategorized on October 11, 2010 by qiam2020

Forgetting your passport is the ultimate way to ruin your vacation because you won’t even be able to leave the country, but this can happen when you’ve left everything to the last minute. When possible, get your new passport or passport renewal well in advance to prevent any holdups. Check your current passport as soon as you book your flights, or even before, to make sure that it has enough time on it, and if not you will have to order a passport through a specialist passport office.

Money While Traveling the World

In Uncategorized on October 1, 2010 by qiam2020

I’m not going to throw a bunch of hype or lies at you and tell you that you can make Money a month with no effort all from a beach on the Caribbean. Get real. That’s just not possible. But I will say that you can make some extra Money during travel if you can spare a few extra hours in between your adventures. No you’re not going to get rich doing this. Yes, you’re going to have to work. But I guarantee it’s not going to be that difficult.

One of the best ways I’ve found to make while traveling is being a free-lance article writer. Free-lance article writing involves writing articles exactly like this one for businesses and internet marketers.

If you can write in complete sentences, and use the Google search function, then you’re over-qualified to do this.

Most people will pay between $7-15 for quality articles. There are some providers in India and elsewhere that will write for $2-5 but don’t put yourself in their league. I know from experience how awful their work is.

Most articles can be completed in 30 minutes. So, if you think about it, you could be making anywhere from $14 to $30 per hour. And, this can all be done from wherever you happen to have internet connection.

Spend a few hours every night writing articles and you could easily break even while traveling around the world.

Legends of the Annapurna Circuit

In Uncategorized on September 18, 2010 by qiam2020

The mountain scenery also includes ‘Annapurna 1′ (8,091 metres) which was the first 8000 metre peak to be climbed, and the tenth highest mountain in the world. Its summit was the highest ‘summit’ achieved for three years, until the first successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1953. The Annapurna peaks are some of the world’s most dangerous mountains to climb and should only be tackled by experienced, and well-prepared, climbers.

Dhauligiri and Machhupuchare

Also located along the Annapurna Circuit is the ice pyramid ‘Dhauligiri’ (8,167 metres), once the home of the legendary Buddhist Padmasamba. A pilgrimage site for Buddhists, inside the mountain is said to be a treasury for the happiness and prosperity of the entire world. The trek also visits ‘Machhupuchare’ (6,993 metres), which many consider to be the most beautiful mountain in the world. Revered by the local population as a sacred site of the God Shiva, it is off-limits to climbers, though a trekker can still enjoy its beauty. The double summit resembles the tail of a fish, leading to its name meaning ‘Fishes Tail’ in Nepalese. It is also nicknamed ‘the Matterhorn’ of Nepal’, after that other iconic mountain in the Swiss Alps.

Religions

Following paths used as trade routes between Nepal and Tibet, the Annapurna Circuit has enabled a flow and exchange of cultures and religions in the otherwise inaccessible region. Today, Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism, Hinduism, and the lesser-known Bon-Po religion all coexist with each other, meaning the region is deeply steeped in religion. Partly for this reason, on average, two-thirds of all trekkers in Nepal visit the Annapurna Circuit; of course for the diverse scenery of high mountains and lowlands villages, but also for the unique cultural experiences available.

Muktinath

Muktinath is a sacred site for both Hindus and Buddhists. It is located close to the village of Ranipauwa, which is sometimes mistakenly known as Muktinath as well. The Hindu name for the site is ‘Mukti Kshetra’, literally meaning ‘Place of Salvation’. The Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, which in Tibetan means ‘Hundred Waters’. Muktinath is home to several temples of the different religions, including one of the most ancient Hindu temples to the God Vishnu, making it a fulfilling yet difficult-to-access pilgrimage site.

The Goddess Annapurna

The ‘Annapurna’ of the Annapurna Circuit is a Sanskrit name, which in literal translation means ‘filled with food’. It’s usually translated as ‘Goddess of the Harvests’ – in Hinduism, Annapurna or Annapoorna is a goddess of fertility and agriculture, depicted as holding a bejewelled golden ladle in one hand, and a bowl full of delicious porridge in the other. It is said that she does not eat a morsel unless all her devotees have been fed in her temple.
