My days in Amsterdam- Especially my staying in House boats

The canals of Amsterdam – I believe they are the life-line of the city. There are many options to stay like the hotels and apartments in Amsterdam and I was happy to get my room there too. My adventure for boat-ride in Amsterdam made me come across many house-boats that you can take for your stay. I thought of spending my last 2 days of Amsterdam holidays in the house-boats. It was a great time there as I could take a complete tour of the city relaxing in my house-boat.

“Enchanting Island of Djerba”

I cannot forget my travel to Djerba, Tunisia. It is a wonderful island I must say, an island in North African Coast specifically. I can still feel the heat of this island, but the charming destination enchants with its white menzels (houses), field with apricots, grenadines, lemon, oranges, pomegranates, figs and grapes plantation. There are small mosques, Borj el-Kebir and the (Houmt-Souk) market centre. It is rightly called the Isle of Forgetfulness.

Horse Flu in Sydney, Be Safe on Your Visit

I went through a report on Horse-flu during my official stay in one of the hotels in Sydney. Lately, there have been cases of horse flu in Australia. A summit was held on national equine influenza in Sydney. New South Wales Primary Industries Minister though said that there are little chances for the outbreak of horse-flu, but little can be said or affirmed on this matter. He said a complete vaccination can though save you the deadly flu. However, Equine Veterinarians Association made an equally alarming statement that it is impossible to be completely vaccinated from the horse-flu as the virus of equine influenza keeps on changing shape and strain.

Tunisian Chorba on my Tunisia Holiday

 

What better end could it be to end my Tunisia Holiday by trying the local specialty which has influences of several culture. I remember when I had dined in one of the restaurants of Tunis, I was offered menu which featured various cuisines. On seeing the list, I felt why the hell was I eating the regular breakfast and dinner in my Tunis hotel. The names made me think they were mouth-watering and delicious. I scrolled my finger tip to chorbas and ordered for one.I was told it was prepared with Vermicelli and vegetable soup. I liked the soup and wished to have the restaurant earlier.

As it was a short vacation in Tunisia, I could not explore more Tunisian cuisines. I hope when I come again to this country, I will make a list of the cuisines and enjoy everyday for a change.

 

 

 

 

My Tunisia Holiday- Exploring Roman remains in Bardo National Museum

 

Today is 25/7/2008 and it is 7:00 am. Whenever I am in vacation, I make it a point that I should feel free of all the wordly. But as usual I cannot make it. Now when I am on my Tunisia holiday, I am off my bed and experiencing the morning life with a cup of tea in hands. Its indeed a lovely morning. Sometimes, I wonder what would have Tunisia looked like during Roman period. Certainly, must have been wonderful. During my stay in one of the hotels in Tunis, though I did not have much advantage to visit the ancient Roman remains and sites, I made sure to visit the Bardo National Museum. Amazing collection of artefacts from archaeological sites.

The lady is startled and retreats back to her car.

Banta to Santa- “You put that lady back in her place, your English sounds better than hers.”

Santa to Banta- “That was only a sample, if she would have stayed around for a while, I would have recited thirsty crow and Greedy dog for her as well.”
