Here are some ideas for your inspiration:


VISITING INDIA 


 More than two-thirds o f Indian people live in the thousands of villages dotted all over India. Most people work on the land. They do not own large farms; many own or rent small pieces of land. Here they grow food for their families, with perhaps a bit extra to sell at market. It is a hard life. People live in simple houses, sometimes built around open-air courtyards. Each village also has a well and a temple or mosque.
Some people leave their villages and travel to the big cities in search of work. Some get jobs as household servants, hotel workers or rickshaw drivers. But many return em ptyhanded. Indian cities are very overcrowded. Many people live in slum s on the outskirts of the city. Some cannot even afford to do this. They sleep on the pavement. There are also gangs of beggars, trying to scrape together enough money' to live on. Wealthy people usually live in large blocks of flats. They have servants to cook, clean and keep house for them .

If you lived in India, you'd probably have not only your parents, but your grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins living with you. When an Indian girl gets married, she leaves her family and goes to live with her husband's family. Indian weddings are very grand affairs, lasting for several days. The bride wears a special, embroidered sari with beautiful jewellery and elaborate make-up.

MADERIA



Many stories have been told about the discovery and colonization of Madeira, and many myths persist to this day. One is that Madeira is the last vestige of the drowned continent of Atlantis; another is that the lost treasure of the notorious pirate Captain Kidd is buried on one of the llhas Selvagens. The truth is more prosaic. It is known for a fact that the Madeiran islands were familiar to navigators long before Porto Santo and Madeira were officially 'discovered' by Joao Gongalves Zarco in 1418 and 1420. Pliny, the 1 st-century ad Roman writer, called them the 'Purple Islands' because of the distinctive colour of Madeira's volcanic rocks and soil. The Medici map of 1351, drawn by Genoese cartographers, was the first to depict Madeira and give it a name I Isola delle Lolegname (Island of Wood). The same name - llha da Madeira in Portuguese i was used by Zarco when he landed in 1420, laying daim to the island on behalf of Portugal.

The story of Robert Machin Facts, though, are rarely as romantic as the tales embroidered by sailors with time on their hands as they sailed the Atlantic carrying cargoes of Madeiran sugar, grain and wine. About 100 years after Zarco's discovery, chronicler Valentine Fernandes published a different account, which he no doubt heard in some harbourside bar. This concerns a Bristol merchant, Robert Machin, who was blown out into the Atlantic by a storm while sailing to Portugal. Ending up within sight of Madeira, Machin went ashore to investigate.

 His mutinous crew decided to abandon Machin, but they got caught up in another storm which drove them on to the Moroccan coast where they were taken prisoner, destined to serve as galley slaves. Determined to return to civilisation, Machin built himself a raft. He, too, fell prey to Moroccan pirates and ended up in the same prison as his former crew. 

Machin then furiously attacked one of his fellow sailors, meaning to kill him in revenge. Astonished by the ferocity of the fight, Machin's gaolers forced him to explain his actions and it was not long before the whole story of the mysterious island at the edge of the known world began to circulate. It was only a matter of time before Henry the Navigator heard the story and sent Zarco out to investigate. Even more romantic versions of Machin's story circulated in the 17th century in which he is portrayed as an English aristocrat eloping with his sweetheart, Anna d'Arfet (or Anne of Hertford). Shipwrecked on Madeira, she dies of exposure and he of a broken heart. Zarco is said to have found their graves when he stepped ashore in 1420, inspiring him to name the spot Machico. Another Madeiran legend has it that Zarco set fire to Madeira - this being the fastest way to clear the island's dense woodland - and that the forests blazed for seven years. In fact, clearance was probably much more selective: the island's timber was a valuable resource, used for building houses, ships and the crates to hold sugar and other crops.

JAPAN
Japan is a beautiful country. You may be interested in learning about Japan because you want to visit, or perhaps you are simply curious about the country and its people. In this book you will learn about the exciting history of Japan and look at pictures of places you may not have seen or heard about before. You will read about Japan’s amazing sights and learn many interesting facts about this fascinating country.




Japan s history is full of stories of princes, emperors, shoguns and democratic leaders. Read on to learn how Japan became the great nation it is today


DENMARK -AARHUS
Radiating out westwards from Denmark’s largest shipping port, Aarhus is in the Jutland region. The city has youth - it's the country's youngest city - and good looks. It also has ambition: planners are transforming the harbour area and extending it northwards, in order to make room for new residents as well as to cater for the increasing numbers of tourists. A period of rapid, ambitious growth is under way and it includes such exciting ventures as the 20-year plan to create a Sports Ramblas - a boulevard exclusively dedicated to sporting activities. 

Other cities may be better known, but mere familiarity is in itself no recommendation; Aarhus has no laurels on which to rest, no tired old cliches to call upon and no received image to live up to. Few can match the city for beauty, friendliness and fun. Word’s getting around, and pretty soon everyone will want a piece of the action. No^wonder Aarhus has a smile on its face.






CYPRUS BEACHES
Cyprus has good if not very extensive beaches around Protaras, Agia Napa, Larnaka, Lemesos and Pafos, and at points in between.There are also long and uncrowded beaches in the rugged Akamas Peninsula, and some very quiet ones along the north coast east of Polis. Most of the popular beaches have a range of services that may include lounger and umbrella hire, beach cafes and restaurants, pedalos, and watersports facilities. Remember to take safety seriously on the beach and in the sea, especially with young children - calm as the seas around Cyprus look, they are subject to very strong currents. And be careful not to overdo the sunbathing, particularly at the beginning of your holiday, and once again particularly with children.


COSTA RICA

Have you ever been to Costa Rica? Thousands of tourists visit this tropical paradise every year. Costa Rica is located in Central America, and forms a bridge between North and South America. Costa Rica, which covers 51,100 square kilometres (19,730 square miles), is more than twice the size of Wales.
Peaceful people
Most of Costa Rica's 4.5 million people live in the Central Valley where San Jose, the capital and largest city, is located. The people, who call themselves ticos, are proud that Costa Rica is a peaceful nation. Costa Rica is one of only 18 countries in the world that has no standing armies (permanent military force).
Beaches and volcanoes
Costa Rica has over 1,290 kilometres (800 miles) of coastline. Rugged mountain ranges, which include over 100 volcanoes, separate the coastal areas. Rainforests and cloud forests attract tourists to Costa Rica. Today, tourism is Costa Rica's largest industry. Tourists enjoy surfing in coastal waters, rafting on rivers, and hiking through rainforests.

Top 5 Tips To Book The Best Cruise




 
-
Before booking the best cruise, you must check out some factors so that you get maximum benefits. The factors you must take into account are the following:

1. Booking Your Trip Early:
To avail the early bird rates, you must book your trip in advance. That means you should know when and where you want to travel, so plan your trip well in advance to avail this opportunity. This is the best selection as it will give you the best option on everything, from itineraries to the best cabin categories. You will get the early bird rates which maybe upto half the scheduled rate. Try to book the cruise at least a year before so that you are benefitted the most. If you are sailing to enjoy the Caribbean festivals, then the best booking period is between January to March. If you intend to travel to Europe and Alaska then the booking period has no time limit. You can book anytime in advance. Nowadays the cruise lines offer discounted rates round the year to push up their sales. They offer many facilities to the customers to lure. It is always better to book early so that you do not encounter disappointment during the peak season.



2. Different Regions Have Different Lead Times
Take for example Alaska; here ships do not sail in winter time. Everything is frozen, so to sail to Alaska you must book much before. Booking early will get you more benefits from cruise rates to hotel rates. The seasonal cruise must be planned before as there is quite a rush in peak time. There are some exotic destinations in Australia and in Europe, which are very seasonal, so your planning must be way ahead for booking your trip to these regions. 

3. Be Wise In Your Approach
Sometimes booking a cruise even a week before can fetch you a good discount. It depends if the ship is not filled in full. If you do not have any time set for cruise then you can opt for this opportunity. It all depends on your luck, this is a risk you have to take and you might turn out to be lucky. If there are few seats available in the ship then you might get a discount as the cruise line will try to fill up the seats.  



4. Book Early If Travelling In Group
Book much early if you are going to sail in a group to avoid disappointment. It will help your group to accommodate with dining rooms. Moreover, your cabins will be close to each other. Booking early will avail you the early bird rates and other facilities too. Above all, your full group will be close to each other.

5. Last Minute Or Death-Hour Booking May Fetch A Good Deal
You can get your booking done within 45 to 90 days before sailing. You might be lucky to get discounted fares as the cruise line would think to fill the ship in full. These last minute fares will not be as low as the early bird booking. If you book late, you will not get the option to choose your cabin as per your choice. You have to accept what is available. But if you do not care for the cabin so much, then this could be the best choice for you.

1 London: This one of a kind, cosmopolitan capital is packed with fun and lively, family-friendly things to watch out for.

You get to visualize and see museum-related groans and gradually slip into the past. From Natural History Museum, Tower of London, London Zoo to the fine-looking Science Museum, you can actually get so much to experience in London alone.

If you still do not know much of the city, take that open-top tour buses which makes sightseeing even merrier and fun. Do not forget to hop off for those relaxed and serene river cruises. For the greatest of views, London Eye is a-must visit place or a trip to Shard will never be regretted!



2. Edinburgh: Stylish, neat and cool Edinburgh, is one doddle to be around at and we must definitely thank the compact size of the city centre. The place is a bit hilly, hence if you got pushchairs, it would be best to climb aboard or you could manage with those efficient hop-on hop-off tour bus, which takes you to major sightseeing spots like the National Museum of Scotland and The Edinburgh Castle. The distinguished World of Illusions and Camera Obscura might be a bit under-rated but one of the most fabulous of family escapades and if you love rain, then be there for sure. Ask your family about the Edinburgh Festival, they will love every bit of it!

3. Paris: There is a wide array of appealing things to draw your family’s attention in the French capital. However, yes, it’s the Disneyland Paris, which make kids and adults alike, go gaga. You can spend quality time with the gorgeous bijou streets and end up capturing few of the most unforgettable moments spent at the Disney parks. You sure will visit Eiffel Tower, one of the chief attractions of Paris and at the climax of your tour go for Tour de France or just walk past the Bastille Day parade. The memories are worth living, time and again!

4. Barcelona: Family rules, when you’re in Spain! You need not get surprised when you watch local children dining with their parents or when you notice little one jumping and running with their folks for evening sips and drinks!

All of this is part of Barcelona’s charm and magnetic appeal, and your family will have a great time mingling and nurturing these little yet welcoming culture of this city. Treat your kids to the beach side or spend a day at the pleasurable Port Aventura theme park for enjoyable thrill rides and full on family fun time!
