Some interesting places to go with Telexet Holidays :

Kapparis Beach- Cyprus : Leisure Waves Unlimited.

 A short stroll through the main street of Kapparis is highly rewarding for many reasons. This street was actually the main coastal road to Famagusta in olden days. Famagusta, once the flourishing place in Cyprus with its safe beaches and white sand, has gone to devastation after the Turkish invasion. Now it is a secluded locality with deserted beaches and empty hotels.

‘Protaras aquarium’ which is situated at the opposite end of the main street through Kapparis has a special treat for its visitors. A beautiful cove with a lovely church overlooking the sea is another treat which Kapparis offers to its tourists.

The buffer zone that divides the island into North Cyprus and South Cyprus is at a walk able distance from the main street of Kapparis. This zone has two admirable things- an information center and a zoo. The information center outlines the history of the division of Cyprus. The zoo has a tower from which one can see across the borders of Cyprus.

The fireman’s beach is also at a walk able distance from the main streets of Kapparis. The beach was named so because of its proximity to a training institute for fire service.

Kapparis, with its extolling scenic beauty, quiet beaches and friendly people is what you need if you are looking for a pleasing and lovely holidaying completely ignorant of the hustle-bustle of modern life.

Barcelona,Capital of Catalonia

Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain and has a
population of 1.5 million. In the last ten years, the city's
economy, and much of its population, has enjoyed a boom

in prosperity. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, which,
like several other areas of Spain, has its own distinctive
culture and language.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Barcelona was
one of the first Spanish cities to become industrialized. It fell
into decline in the 1980s, but since 1990 the city has adapted
well to changes in the world economy. Originally a city
of heavy industry, and one of Spain's most important
Mediterranean ports, it has developed into a city of high-tech
industry and a major tourist destination.
Today, Barcelona is a thriving commercial centre. New,
more environmentally friendly factories have been built by
companies such as the SEAT car company, which is part of
Spain's largest export sector of cars and car parts. Spanish
exports to the rest of Europe have increased generally, and
Barcelona, situated only 100 km from the French border, is in

Rainforests of the World

WHERE IN THE WORLD
Over half of the world’s rainforests are

in South and Central America. The
remainder can be found in parts of
Africa, Asia and Australia. Almost all
rainforests lie between two imaginary
lines north and south of the equator,
called the ftopic of Cancer and the
fropic of Capricorn. This is why they
are often called tropical rainforests.
It has been hot and wet in the tropics
for millions of years. These constant
conditions have made it possible for
rainforests to develop into the most
diverse and complex environments
in the world. Some scientists
recognise over 40 different types of
rainforest, each with its own variety of
plant and animal life.

Rainforests once formed a wide,
green belt around the planet but today
pictures taken from space tell a
different story. All around the world
large areas of rainforest are vanishing
as people clear the way for crops,
homes and businesses. Many species
of wildlife are disappearing too.

► In the tropics, the only change in weather
conditions is from wet to wetter during the
rainy season. This means that rainforest trees do
not need to flower in spring or shed their leaves
in autumn. Each type of tree has its own growth
cycl^ The varying tree cycles guarantee a
regular supply of flowers, fruits, nuts and seeds
for rainforest creatures.

▼ The largest rainforest in the world stretches
across the Amazon Basin in South America. It
covers an area nearly as big as Australia. The
Amazon River snakes through the rainforest. It
is the largest river system in the world. During
the rainy season, parts of the rainforest are
flooded by the Amazon and fish swim among the
giant tree trunks.

ITALY


About 50 million people visit Italy every year. Many come as tourists to enjoy the country's
various tourist sites and attractions:
• coastal resorts such as Rimini on the Adriatic

Historical towns and cities such as Pisa with its leaning tower.

• the capital city Rome where people can visit the Vatican City and ancient ruins such as
the Colosseum
• the Roman city o f Pompeii, which was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius
• rural landscapes in regions such as Tuscany 
• mountain peaks and lakes such as Lake Como, which attract tourists for both
summer and winter holidays.

The effects of tourism
Tourism helps create jobs and brings money to Italy. Jobs are especially important in rural
areas where there is often a high level of unemployment. However, most o f these jobs
are only seasonal. Seaside jobs, for example, are mainly from mid-July to the end o f August.
Tourism brings changes to the environment. Land is needed for buildings and for roads.
Better water supplies are needed and there are problems of pollutio n where new sewage
treatment works have not been built. Traffic congestion in popular tourist cities such as
Siena is a regular problem.

Malta


The Romans took possession of Malta in 218 bc.They renamed it ‘Melita’, which means ‘honey
island’, and built villas and public baths there. The capital city of the same name was built in
the middle of the island. During the period of Roman rule there was a shipwreck that proved
to be of great significance for the island. The apostle Paul, a Roman citizen, was a prisoner on
a ship sailing for Rome. The ship ran into a fierce storm and capsized. Paul was washed ashore on
the coast o f Malta. He stayed on the island for three months, during which time he set up Malta’s
first Christian community. This story is related in the Bible (Acts 27). The bay where St Paul was
cast ashore still carries his name. Visit : www.visitmalta.com  and http://lollypop-holidays.org.uk/malta-holidays.html

Crete

Any visitor to the north const between Iraklio and Malia will be unable to ignore the changes 
that mass tourism has brought to Crete. But the island is trying to turn the tide, with ambitious plans for green tourism that will Introduce a much-needed balance between  the need for foreign currency and the ravages that low-budget tourism brings to the island's ecology and social life.


Topless sunbathing for women has become a commonplace feature of most western
European beaches, and Crete is no exception. There are many secluded spots for whole-hog
nudists; but visitors are well advised to behave with some
sensitivity as many older Cretans do not care for the trend. As a rule, toplessness is all right on
secluded tourist beaches, but should be avoided on public stretches of the town beach. http://www.visitgreece.gr/en/greek_islands/crete

Low Cost Holidays 2014

If you are looking for cheap holidays and bargain deals, lowcostholidays.com is the one good site to visit. We recommend low cost holiday providers on our lollypop-holidays.org.uk website as well. Some trendy destinations for low cost deals:


EGYPT

Egypt doesn't have well-defined seasons. Between April and September it is very hot; usually above 35 °C during the day in Cairo and the Delta region, and rising to an average high of about 40 °C in Upper Egypt. October and November average between 25 and 30 °C. The winter period is cooler, with temperatures no higher than 18 or 20 °C in the daytime and down to 5 or 10 at night.

For thousands of years, monsoon rains in the mountains of Ethiopia caused the River Nile to flood and brought rich black silt into the desert. This made the Nile Valley the richest agricultural land in the world. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt took advantage of the regular floods and created a religious government with themselves as gods, who were said to control the rise and fall of the river. The pharaohs ruled for two thousand years, but the reliable harvest made Egypt the prize of occupying empires. During the third century bce, the pharaohs were overthrown by the Greeks, who in turn were toppled by the Romans. For the next two thousand years one occupying force followed another. Then, in 1952, a revolution re-established Egyptian rule over Egypt, and the country became a socialist democracy with an elected parliament and president.

MALTA

The Maltese landscape is mostly low and flat, with a few hills and many cliffs along the coastline. There are no mountains, lakes or rivers on the island, and its general appearance is bare and rocky. The coastline is rocky too; there are a few sandy beaches but most of them are pebble or shingle. Malta’s predominant colour is ochre, a pale-brownish yellow - this is due to the limestone rocks that dominate the island. Many of the houses are built of this local limestone. Because the island has such a high population density there is very little vegetation. The towns and villages around the capital, Valletta, and the nearby city of  Sliema have spread so much that they have converged.
