The two weeks of summer that everyone has been waiting for are finally here – The Olympic Games. Taking place in London, England this year, the Olympics is one of the most watched sporting events on the planet. With this much national attention, a copious amount of detail and planning must go into the preparation of the Games. This entails a huge logistical challenge in how to overcome the mass transportation of products, athletes, workers and attendees to the London Olympics.
There has been reports that there has been two months of rain in 24 hour in the UK. Well we have been in to Newquay over the weekend and Saturaday was a lovely day but at 2am Sunday morning the rain began. And it didn’t stop all day plus being on the coast means you get the sea breeze, or should I say gale winds haha.
It rained that much the roof started to leak at the hotel we was in.
While we have been down there we tried out a few bars clubs and restaurants.
The best resurant we can recommend is a place called Steams.
It is in a great location over looking the coastline. The food is really nice and excellent value for money.
Suitable for families couples and groups.
We also when to over bars and clubs and found a bar and night club call Berties was the best.
Music was varied but that cant be a bad thing because everybody can enjoy it.
The atmosphere was good and lively.
These two recommendations are 100 meters from one another so for the ladies who are in heels dont worry its in waling distance.
This is a traditional shot of Venice on a summers day. It gives you a true insight to the wonder of Venice. I like how active this shot is. You have got the gonadals on the water, the different styles of bridges and how active the bridges are.
I think this is a great picture of the Colosseum . I may have mentioned before that the Colosseum is a good place to visit in Rome.If you are going on holiday or moving over there. You should defo visit it. and the surround landmarks there.
Lets take a visit to the states, We are heading to towards San Fransico. I have participial fond of the golden gate bridge. It a true engineering accomplished.
It is over 1900 meter long and 230 meters height.
The construction took place on January 5, 1933 and was finished April 19, 1937.
You only pay to use the toll road when you are heading south.
Thats Pearson fact of the day.
This is one of many beautiful pictures that have been taken from backpackers in New Zealand. This is a wonderful county, the people are so friendly and laid back. Every mile you travel you will see a new and stunning scenery. I when there a few years ago and laded in Auckland. One of the first things I did was to bungee job of the pie in the sky lol. I travel all over the northern Island seen some wonderful things. Then after a few weeks i traveled down to Wellington And spent some time down there. The most impressive part for me was seeing the penguins in the snow in Otago.
