New Years Eve on Sydney Harbour

Sydney is renowned for hosting one of the largest and most spectacular fireworks displays. Spanning the Harbour from Bradleys Head and Taronga Zoo and all the way out west heading towards the Gladesville Bridge, the city of Sydney embraces this event as the population heads to the foreshore for a prime viewing position. More than a million spectators and revellers cram the foreshore at various designated areas and zones. Some are family friendly and alcohol free, some are ticketed areas to restrict the number of people in a particular zone and other areas are a free for all. Without doubt, the most exclusive would be on a New Years Eve cruise. Any Boat, Sydney’s largest and most reputable charter agency has the city’s most exclusive yachts available for you to choose from.

Private New Years Eve Cruises

What does a private New Years Eve cruise have to offer? Well for starters, a lot more privacy and comfort and exclusivity. Your skipper will pick you up and drop you off at a pre-arranged location. In addition to that, most vessels have an all-inclusive food and beverage package. So, all you have left to do is turn up and enjoy the evening. Some do have the flexibility of having BYO. The team at Any Boat in Sydney have recommended the following private charter vessels for you to consider:

  • Element – A super yacht that calls Sydney home, Element is still available for the evening. Capable of holding 36 passengers for the night, Sydney’s fireworks display will be so much more exciting when you’re on the main deck of this vessel. At AUD $45,000, she’s not cheap but that does come with an all-inclusive food and beverage package.

  • John Oxley – A grand old darling of Sydney Harbour, John Oxley has been meticulously maintained. Suitable for up to 30 guests, Alcohol is BYO however; there is a BYO food package for AUD $35,000 or the catered package for AUD $40,000
Ticketed New Years Eve Cruises

If you have a smaller group and don’t want to charter out a whole vessel for yourself then ticketed new years eve cruises are a great option. Tickets have sold quickly for this year’s cruises with boats like Galene and Silver Spirit already sold out. Any Boat’s recommendations for ticketed cruises are:

  • Starship Sydney – Priced at AUD $675 a ticket, Starship is great value. Included in the ticket price is food, drinks, entertainment and access to the Harbour of Lights Parade. You will be able to enter parts of the Harbour that most other people can’t. Holding a maximum of 950 guests, it is sure to be one of Sydney’s biggest parties.

  • Jerry Bailey – Similarly priced at $699 a ticket and also part of the Harbour of Lights Parade, Jerry Bailey will be a little more intimate as tickets are limited to 160 people. Included in the ticket price is food, beverages and entertainment.

 

Change the Shape of the World

Furthering your education can be a powerful way for you to get a grasp on your own life. It can be easy to feel lost in the world nowadays. The internet has made communication easier than ever and that means that people are more aware of each other than ever before. It can be as amazing as it is overwhelming. In order for you to find your place in the current state of things, you might be interested in finding a career where you have control over the form the planet takes.

Following the path to obtain either your USC GIS or your USC MCM might be exactly what you need. When you advance your knowledge on topics related to science or communication you will find that you are entering fields that can have a profound impact on the world. There are many reasons to consider these areas of learning for your future.

Lay of the Land

A GIS, also known as a GIST or focus on geographic information science and technology, can be an incredibly helpful degree to obtain. When you begin on your track with this program you will be learning all about the way that the geography of the planet shapes human civilization. This is far from a history path as you will be using all of the knowledge to the past to shape the future of the world. By learning all about the way science and tech play into geography you will be putting yourself ahead in a dynamic area of study.

Those who pursue this degree often wind up working in positions that have to do with surveying land, digital maps, cartographic creation and distribution, and that is just the beginning. This is a field that is always growing and does not seem like it will be stopping anytime soon. As the world continues to change, geography must be taken into consideration for everything from urban planning to environmental conservation. It is incredibly important that bright minds continue to add to the research and find new ways to apply the knowledge of this field to the world.

Bridge the Gap

Geographic exploration might be useful but there are also plenty of exhilarating ways that you can help to change the world when you follow the path for your USC MCM degree as well. An MCM, or Master of Communication Management, is another academic path geared for the current shape of the world. Working in fields related to communication is incredibly important. This is an area that helps people to reach out via the internet, television, film, radio and the media in general. Your MCM will help you to stay on top of changes made in these fields.

Though the world has shifted a great deal in a small amount the field of communication has definitely changed more than others. In order for you to be able to get ahead, it is a good idea that you know all about how the world is changing its communication tactics and what tech is involved with the process. Following this path for your future will help you to learn everything that you need to know to master the art of connection in the digital age and be able to manage a team of others in bridging communication gaps.

Start Changing the World

There is no time like the present to find your purpose in the big, noisy world. Look into how either a USC GIS & USC MCM might be the right degree for you to obtain for your future. Once you have done this you will be ready to face tomorrow with a newfound sense of purpose and start changing the world in ways that you never dreamed possible.

A Vacation in Brisbane Without Spending Much Money

While it is impossible to go on a vacation without spending a single penny, you can go wherever you want without spending a lot of money. Contrary to common belief, traveling is not expensive. Backpackers and budget travellers have proven that it is possible to travel in a limited budget.

One popular destination among budget travellers is Brisbane. It sounds counterintuitive to visit a first world metropolitan and save money, but it is the truth. So how do people enjoy Brisbane without spending much money? Here’s how:

Try Couchsurfing             

Couchsurfing is a new trend among millennials who want to save money when travelling. Here they find locals who offer their home for free. It is scary at first, but there are plenty of reputable websites that could help you meet friendly locals. To ensure your safety, check for red flags before booking with the host: their profile has to be filled out, it has to have profile picture, it has real reviews and they must be easy to contact.

Book a Cheap Car Rental in Advance

There are plenty of cheap car rental in Brisbane and you can easily nab a discount if you book online before your arrival. Traveling around Australia via a car hire is common among travellers because it saves them time and money from taking public transportation. It is also convenient and comfortable to explore if you drive a car.

Find the Best Cheap Eats

Brisbane is the third most populous city in Australia, so it is not surprising that there are plenty of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisine in different price ranges. As a budget traveller, pick the ones that offer the best but cheapest food. You think it is impossible? Try searching for Roll’d in QueensPlaza or Izakaya Kotobuki in Albert St. that are famous for Asian dishes. Papparich in Wintergarden or Buffalo Bar in Mary St. offer hearty meals in affordable prices. You can also get takeaways from Ben’s Burgers, New Shanghai and Le Bon Choix to satisfy your cravings. These foods are scrumptious, so try not to over eat and over spend, okay?

Visit Free Tourist Destinations

There are plenty of free things you can do in Brisbane. Aside from a scenic walk around the City Botanic Garden and the Roma Street Parklands, you can also check out the free concert every Sunday at Customs House. The Gallery of Modern Art, The City Hall and the Museum of Brisbane are also great free travel destinations. If you want to spend a laid-back afternoon, The Sunshine Beach and the South bank are ideal for you. Here you can grab something to eat, wait for the sunset and just watch locals.

Never limit your experience on the amount of money you brought. Not because you have a limited budget doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy your vacation. The list just shows a few ways to save money when visiting Brisbane and if you follow them, you will have a wonderful time in this city.

I love to watch sunset and sunrise. In our recent visit to the East Coast Park Singapore, I was eagerly waiting for watching sunset. I know sunset over the sea is really beautiful. I was dreaming. We were waiting and waiting till our kid start showing signs of tiredness. And finally around 6.30 pm we returned home. We couldn’t watch sunset. 🙁 But I could capture few moments of sky and its changes before the sunset. Hope you like to see these photos.

Turn Your African Safari Into An Unforgettable Experience

Africa is a vast and ecologically diverse continent so it can be a bit daunting to plan a safari holiday for the first, or even fifth time. Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

  1. Choosing your destination

Every destination is unique and safaris come in different shapes and sizes. Some are great for first time visitors, while others are better suited for people with particular interests or families. Whichever destination you choose ensure that you receive all the proper vaccinations.

There are many factors dictating your choice. The important things to consider are the reserve size, wildlife diversity and density, seasonality, accessibility and lodging. So think about what you would love to see. Is it the Great Wildebeest Migration in Tanzania? How about touring the breathtaking semi-desert wilderness of Damaraland to see the world’s largest black rhino population or the famous free roaming desert elephants? In stark contrast we have the lush waterways of the Okavanga Delta in Botswana just teeming with life. What if it’s your first time? Then South Africa, famous for its wildlife diversity, would be a good choice. South Africa offers a little bit of everything and ideal for family vacations. It is home to the world famous Kruger National Park, where you can see the Big 5, hippos, cheetahs, crocodiles, giraffes and many wonderful and unique birds.

There is not one perfect safari experience. It is up to you. But asking the right questions and doing the right research could lead to the start of an unforgettable journey.

Turn Your African Safari Into An Unforgettable Experience

  1. What do you need to pack?

So everything is planned and booked. Your dream vacation awaits, but before you can get there you need to decide what to take along. Most internal flights in Africa have a 12 – 15kg luggage allowance so the key is to find the middle ground.

First and foremost is choosing the right clothes. Here’s where all that handy research comes in handy. The region and season are huge factors, but prepare for the unexpected by packing a lightweight waterproof jacket (preferably one that folds into a small bag. A long sleeve collared shirt is perfect to protect your arms and neck from the sun, while keeping you cool. Fast drying materials (like lightweight cotton and wool socks) are a must. You don’t want to have to deal with wet clothes that couldn’t dry overnight.

You might be under the African sun, but come sundown the temperatures can drop suddenly. So take care to bring some thermal layering for the evening or for early morning game drives.

Choose neutral colors to help keep cool and blend in to the environment. Bright tones tend to frighten the wildlife and dark blue is known to attract Tsetse flies. Don’t over pack since most lodges and camps provide 24hr laundry services.

Accessories are next on the list. A sun hat, small bag and sunglasses are essential. Toiletries are personal choice, but do remember your prescription medication, sunscreen and insect repellent/afterbite. Most important is your choice of shoes. You always want to be comfortable. For most cases a pair of light trail shoes are more than enough, but some activities will require hiking boots with proper ankle support. And don’t forget your flip-flops for the end of the day!

  1. Self Drive vs Guided Tours

There are many options when it comes to African safaris. Do you get down and dirty at a bush camp or mix in a little luxury at a lodge. First time visitors and families might want to opt for guided tours. Being under the experienced supervision of an educated guide means you get to sit back, relax and get the most out of your wildlife experience. For the luxury option there are lodge-to-lodge migration safaris, which allows you to stay a variety of lodges or camps. Most lodges offer both private and group guided tours.

For those who are a little more experienced there are self-drive safaris. If you wish to get away from it all then this is for you. You are able to move at your own pace and truly immerse yourself in the African wilderness. But this independence comes with greater risk and responsibility. So be well prepared. Remember this isn’t a zoo. You’re in the wild where anything can and will happen.

If you want the self-drive experience without the responsibility of all the planning then why not try a group self-drive. You still drive your own vehicle, but you are part of a convoy headed by a guide. This gives you the safety of a group and allows you to take advantage of the guide’s knowledge of the area, weather and wildlife.

  1. A day in the sun…

Your guide will be key to a successful wildlife experience so follow their advice. You may drive for hours without seeing any animals so be patient and don’t rush the guide. Events are often spontaneous and you will have to rely on your guide to spot them. If you have something you’d really love to see then let the guide know early on. If you want to see some truly awe inspiring moments, like the lions at sunrise, then early game drives are not to be missed. Listening to your guide’s stories, tips and facts allows you to fully appreciate the experience. And don’t forget to put on sunscreen!

African-Safari-Tips

  1. Capturing your precious memories

We all want to try and capture those memorable, life changing experiences in our lives forever. We want to share it with our families and friends. Take pictures, but remember to listen, to feel the bush surrounding you. Take it slow. Be patient and allow yourself to be immersed in the experience. It’s not always about spotting animals; it’s about becoming a part of the wild.

You guide will tell you when it’s acceptable to take pictures and when to remain still. Make sure to bring a good camera with a zoom lens if you want to take great pictures. Keep your camera ready. Listen to your guide. Things happen very fast on safari so make sure you understand your camera and it’s settings. You will end up taking thousands of pictures so be sure to bring additional memory and batteries. Also try and back up your photos when you have the chance. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than losing all your vacation pictures.

African bush life is slow and beautiful; so forget the hustle and bustle of your city life. It’s time to relax under the African sun.

Selfie Stick Review

If I ask you what to pack in your travel bag, be it a day out or a few days overseas trip, there are many things in any common travel check list. Any travel packing list includes travel documents and other accessories and equipment to enjoy your time in the destination. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a good camera are the most important things you should not forget to pack in your travel luggage.

However, time has changed. Over the few years phone cameras are more popular than other cameras. Selfies are the most fun way to capture moments in any location which shows the excitement. Considering other photos, selfie captures are unique way of telling the story of the holiday or day out you spent.

Hard time taking selfies

But, you need to know some tips on taking perfect selfie if you really like to have cool shots that others will admire. Well, for me, I am not perfect with selfies. I always end up with selfies which I don’t like to share with others in social media or over the blog. Why? Have you noticed your selfies which you have taken with phone camera end up with funny facial expressions? I’ve seen many such selfies in facebook which my friends share. 🙂 I feel those selfies are not worth sharing over such social media because those selfies are really ugly when you change the facial expressions at the time you press the phone button. 🙂 These selfies show how hard it to take a selfie.

Selfie Stick Review
We had hard time taking this selfie using phone and ended up with this funny photo! 🙂

Sometimes, selfies end up with the big hands of you than sharing the background of the place.

How to take a perfect selfie?

Answer is simple. Instead of trying different selfie tips and tricks for a better shot which again ends up as a funny picture, use a selfie stick! A selfie stick is the great way to capture professional looking selfie which shows the beautiful background together with the members in the photo. When you own a selfie stick, you are with endless opportunities to take beautiful and creative selfies.

Selfie Stick Review
Don’t forget your Selfie Stick in your travel essentials!

That is why with any other things in your travel check list; you must pack a selfie stick with your smart phone in order to spend a fun and exciting time in any place anywhere!
