Swimming pigs of Big Major Cay - Bahamas


Paradise living, It is said these pigs were left behind by passing sailors about 2 decades ago and for some reason never came back for them, they live in an inhabited island in the Bahamas, if you take a tour boat make sure you bring them food, they will swim to the boat to feed, they are now raising their family there, not a bad life at all.

Check out the whole set of pictures from echeng on flickr.

Sorry everyone for the lack of posts, moving to a new place, no internet still, will resume very soon.

Norway and it’s amazing Fjords

Hello all, it has been a while since my last post, I have been very busy and neglected the blog for a while, hopefully I’ll have time to post more often.

This post is dedicated to the Fjords in Norway, it is a country I have been longing to visit, my mom lives there and I haven’t been able to visit yet, she is always talking about how gorgeous the scenery is, North, South, East, West, it doesn’t matter where you go, you will find beauty everywhere and I can totally see by the pictures she shares with me, there are many places worth having their own post, that’s why I wanted to focus on the Fjords this time.

So what are they? Fjords are deep, long and narrow inlets that have been carved by glacier movement during the ice age, once the glacier retreats the floor is filled with sea water, they are u shaped, are not connected to rivers or streams but can be several miles long. Norway is the country with most Fjords in the world, Iceland, Alaska, Greenland, Chile and New Zealand also have notable Fjords.

The most known Fjords in Norway are Romsdalsfjord and Nordfjord in the North; Geirangerfjord and Lysefjord in the South West; Sognefjord, Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord in the South and Hardangerfjord in the West close to Bergen with the most popular tourist locations being Kjeragbolten (a round rock wedged solidly in a mountain fissure) and Preikestolen or better known as The Pulpit Rock ( a flat mountain plateau).

Enjoy the pictures.

Since we are now in Olympic mode, do you remember 4 years ago at Beijing this famous building? It was the site for all the aquatic sports competing in the 2008 Olympics, The Beijing National Aquatics Center or better known as The Water Cube was transformed into a water park, with jelly fish suspended from the ceiling, fluorescent slides, water rides, a wave pool, 40ft vertical tube and spa areas, it will for sure make you feel like you stepped into a fantasy water world.

Safety rules say you have to be between 1.4 and 1.9 meters tall to be able to use the rides, sorry Michael Phelps! not this time around…

"We love your blog :) It's awesome, It's one of our favorite travel blogs."

Knock! Knock! is breakfast ready?

Giraffe Manor - Nairobi, Kenya

Today I’m daytraveling to this hotel, I dream I could be there, surrounded by giraffes, seeing them poke their long necks through the windows greeting me, how lovely would it be to have this kind of visitor while staying in a gorgeous manor in Kenya? sharing breakfast with these beautiful giraffes would make my day, of course it comes with a steep price, but it is for a good cause, their main goal is the conservation of these endangered species.

"The Door to Hell" - Turkmenistan

Back in 1971 a group of geologist drilled the ground looking for gas, the floor collapsed leaving a hole of 70 meters in diameter, to avoid poisonous gas discharge they ignited it hoping to burn it off, 41 years later the gas is still burning.

Tianmen Mountain - China

With an elevation of 1,500 meters above sea level, Tianmen Mountain is regarded as the symbol and soul of Zhangjiajie. 

The mountain is named after the Tianmen Cave (gate to heaven), one of the main attractions. It is a natural water-eroded cave (or hole to be exact) with the highest elevation in the world, a height of 131.5 meters, to reach the cave you have to climb a long flight of stairs, 999 steps, this is known as the ‘Heaven Reaching Ladder’ and to get to the base you can drive first then take a bus or use a cable car, this cable-way is claimed as the longest passenger cable-way of high mountains in the world with a total length of 7,455 meters and ascent of 1,279 meters.

There are also kilometers of paths built onto the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors where tourists can walk on.
