Rye (England) 23/07/2010

Rye, a nice, peaceful, historic and picturesque town in sussex..

Rye (England) Rye is a small, picturesque, calm and peaceful town in East Sussex in England, and it’s located about two miles from the sea. There are several things to do there although, mainly there is a lot of cultural and historical buildings such as the Camber Castle, Rye Art Gallery, Rye Castle museum, however the town does offer arguably one of the nicest beaches in England, Camber Sands. In addition, it’s near other towns and villages including Winchelsea, Rye Harbour and Camber for example. Therefore, because of it’s location being near a few nice towns and because it has several cultural and historical buildings as well as a nice beach it makes a ideal holiday destination for people interested in historical buildings, probably not so suited to young people as much though. Camber castle is situated between Rye and Winchelsea. If you visit Rye you should take a camera as there will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the stunning views and the historic buildings. Another place in Rye definitely worth mentioning is the Nature Reserve in Rye Harbour which is a town near Rye and it’s a nice place for a walk near the sea. The nature reserve situates inside a big triangle of land which extends south from Rye beside the River Rother and beyond Rye Harbour near the sea and westward to Winchelsea Beach and then Northwards beside the River Brede. The nature reserve is open all the time and entry is also free. Camber Castle which is an isolated tower that stands between ...

2012 (DVD) 18/07/2010

2012 - not a bad film..

2012 (DVD) My opinion and experience with the film: This science fiction disaster related film was released 13th November 2009 in the UK. A few months ago I went to see 2012 movie with some friends. We went to the nearest cinema to watch it and before the film started we had heard some mixed comments about the film but we weren’t sure about many details of the film. The film was fairly long as it was 2 and a half hours long, although there was a lot of action so it kept you glued to the screen with excitement. There were several natural disasters featured in this film which made it a very action, adventurous and exciting film as there was a risk of the world ending with all these disasters happening. The disasters included volcanic eruptions, earthquakes etc. I thought the film got off to a slow start with the first 30 minutes or so a bit boring, although after that it was really gripping and the time went really quickly while watching it because it was so exciting to watch.However, once the film got going I thought that the graphics were amazing! The graphics were very dramatic and there was a lot going on, I thought that the excellent graphics was probably one of the stronger points for the film. I give it a 3/5 because the film went on a bit too long where the plot wasn’t strong enough, however the graphics were exceptional and some of the acting such as from Jackson Curtis was brilliant so it deserves a 3. I think if the film got going quicker and it didn't have the boring half an ...

Emirates Airlines - UAE 04/07/2008

very good emirates experience

Emirates Airlines - UAE This is an updated review on Emirates Airline. Emirates airline is the seventh largest airline in the world because it carries a large amount of passengers and it is also one of the largest for international passenger's kilometres flown. The airline is based in United Arab Emirates so the base for the airline is in Dubai's international airport. The airline flies to 89 destinations and 55 countries across the world. The selection of destinations you can travel to with this airline makes it a very appealing airline choice because it flies to several destinations in Europe, America and Asia so it makes it a good airline for a multi-destination trip. They seem to add new destinations quite frequently for example they are now doing direct flights from Dubai to Canada and Dubai to Cape Town among others. I travelled to Dubai with Emirates Airline; it was a really good experience. I thought the service was generally very good; the air fares were a reasonable price compared to British Airways air fares which I found a little bit more expensive. Their fares used to be quite reasonable, although when I was planning my latest trip to Australia, Qantas worked out cheaper. I chose this airline firstly because of the air fares being slightly cheaper than British Airways, but also because some airlines don't operate at my nearest airport but Emirates did so it was convenient to be able to go to the airport that's 30 minutes from you rather than 2 hours away. The food on the plane ...

arsenal.com 04/07/2008

A website for the gunners

arsenal.com As an arsenal fan I have regularly been going on the official Arsenal FC website for over a year now. The website design and layout is very good, it's red background theme and the website is very simple to follow. The homepage displays regular updates on latest news on players and matches. The website is updated daily so you can find a new article on there each day. The injury list for the first team is only updated when there are matches taking place because the information comes from Arsene Wenger's (the Arsenal manager's) pre-match conferences. There are new clips added to Arsenal TV online service on a regular basis, usually a few times a week. Arsenal TV online is not part of the website that is separate from the rest of the website. This means that for this service you have to pay monthly or yearly to become a user. I actually subscribed to this service for a few months but I haven't been charged for about a year although it still allows me to use my login. If you do decide to subscribe to this online arsenal TV service I would defiantly recommend the monthly option. At the top of the homepage, there is a menu with the following options, A-Z, News, Fixtures, Tickets, Match, First Team, Reserves/Youth, Ladies, The Club, Fan zone and Hospitality. A-Z - This is a part of the website where you can see a very clearly set out site map. This is basically an A-Z of everything on the website. It's a very easy and quick way of finding the information you want. ...

Ryan Giggs 02/07/2008

One of best players in history of football

Ryan Giggs Although I'm an Arsenal fan not a Manchester United fan I am a fan of Ryan Giggs because I think he has done so much for English football in the past 10 years or so while he has been in the first team for Manchester United. He has achieved so much that he is widely known as one of the best wingers in the history of the game and is very popular with many football fans. Facts about him: His full name: Ryan Joseph Giggs OBE Date of Birth: 29th November 1973 Current Age: 34 years old Where he is was born: Cardiff in Wales How tall is he: 5ft11 inches What position does he play in football? Left or right winger When did he turn pro: on his 17th birthday in 1990 Current club: Manchester United When did he join Manchester United? On his 14th birthday in 1987 His achievements with the club: Gigg's became the first player to ever win the PFA Young Player of the Year Award consecutively in 1992 and 1993 which since then, Robbie Fowler and Wayne Rooney have also achieved. He has won 10 FA Premier League winning medal's which makes him famous as one of the all time best wingers in the game. Ryan holds the record for the highest amount of goal assists with a total of 289 assists in 535 appearances. He also past Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 759 appearances for Manchester United and has become his club's all time best player with the most amount of appearances. Ryan represented England at youth international level because he was attending a English school but then went ...

Remington D 3157 HAIR Essentials 01/07/2008

Good quality, compact hairdryer with diffuser

Remington D 3157 HAIR Essentials This Remington hairdryer D-3157 is a very good hairdryer for the price, I think it has many advantages and it's good value. I bought this hairdryer from Argos this year for £14.99. At the time I was looking for a hairdryer with a diffuser to style my hair curly that wouldn't be too big to pack in a suitcase for travelling with. I didn't have much time to look for one but I chose this because it wasn't expensive and it's compact which was ideal for taking on holiday because of its size. This hairdryer is a 2000 watt with three heat and two speed options, the weight is not too heavy as it's only 0.275g and the diffuser and concentrator attachments were included. It's not complicated to use because of the fact that it only has a few different settings. I like the design too which is a nice mainly green and black with silver on the front and back edging parts of the hairdryer. Despite having a lot of advantages for a cheap but good quality hairdryer, it does also have a few disadvantages compare to other hairdryers. Firstly, the fact that it does not have many options to change heat etc could be a problem if you want to do certain hair styling. Secondly, the hairdryer sometimes overheats quite quickly compared to my previous hairdryer which can be a problem because it can lead to the hairdryer turning itself of and not turning on for a few hours. Finally, the hairdryer is quite cheaply made so it would break fairly easily, but for it's price you can't expect too much. This ...

Tennis in General 01/07/2008

How do you serve in tennis

Tennis in General As I am a big fan of tennis, here is my factual information guide to one of the key types of shots in the sport, the serve. The serve is a very important part of tennis and if you ever want to get anywhere in tennis having a good, powerful and effective serve is the key to success. In tennis, a serve is a shot which starts of a point in a rally where the player aims to get the ball in the diagonally opposite service box on the court. There are four service boxes on a tennis court, two on each end of the court but you only use one per point of a game. You can have two attempts to serve in one point before you get a double fault then the opponent wins that point and you have to go onto the next point and serve on the other side. A quick and effective way of scoring points with the serve is to serve aces. An ace is a serve which is usually hit with extreme power and accuracy which makes it very hard for the opponent to return the ball, if the opponent gets no contact on the serve it's called an ace. One way to score aces is to aim to get the ball on the far outside line of the service box or right in the corner with a lot of power, these tend to be the hardest type of serve because the opponent has to move wide off the court to return the ball. It is a good idea to take your time when serving to get good accuracy and power because this is the only part of a rally where you have total control on when and how you hit ball. To serve well you also need a good placement of the ...

Superfoods cereal bars by Jordans

Jordans Superfoods Cereal Bars Jordans: The Company background information Jordans is a family owned business which was started in 1972 when the Jordan brothers created a company for cereals called W.

Jordans have taken some of their previous superfoods products and added wholegrain oats to produce these superfoods cereal bars. I do a lot of sport and I was trying to find a healthy snack that I could eat before or during sport that would keep me going for ...

Recipes for Salads 27/05/2008

Addicted to this salad!

Recipes for Salads Caesar salad is a very light and healthy type of salad that is made from Romaine lettuce leaves, cheese,caesar salad dressing and also you can put crunchy croutons in too which are included in the Waitrose Caesar salad. I believe caesar salad originates from Italy by an Italian chef who was in Mexico at the time but there are conflicting reports so I'm not sure. You can also add mustard, lemon juice, worchestor sauce, mayonnaise and chicken to add flavour. The cheese that is used for Waitrose's caesar salad is called Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese which is an Italian cheese. It is slightly different to the original cheese that was used in caesar salad as it orignally was made with Parmesan cheese which is a similar tasting cheese. I often add caesar salad to a meal with a chicken portion or anything similar, somtimes as a replacement for chips or as an extra depending on how hungry everyone is. It's very quick and easy to make, doesn't take long at all, and all the ingredients are supplied. They include a small sachet of caeasar dressing which is not alot so you may have to add extra depending on how you like it, a sachet of the cheese, and a sachet of the croutons. It is my favourite salad because I find salads containing just lettuce a bit boring and don't have much flavour, but caesar salad dressing gives this salad an additional flavour which make it taste better. I would definately give this salad a try, particularly if you caesar sauce or if you're like me that ...

Mackay Airport , Queensland 27/05/2008

A small airport in Queensland....

Mackay Airport , Queensland When i was travelling around Australia this year, i was in North Queensland in a small place called Bowen which is about an hour and a half to two hours from Mackay airport, which happened to be the closest airport. I wanted a flight to Melbourne from there, and there's a new airline called Tiger Airways in Australia which was doing special offers for flights from Mackay to Melbourne in April when i was there, they may still be doing the special offer because they are trying to promote their airline because it's very new. The airport is located in the industrial area of the city off the main road. I knew it was going to be a small airport because it only does regional flights, but it looks bigger from the outside than what it is on the inside, when your inside the airport it's really not big at all. There are only a few check-in desks in a small space located on the far right end of the airport, I think they could have a few more desks if they wanted but it's probably not needed as the airport only caters for a small amount of pasengers. The four major airlines that are operating in Australia use Mackay Airport, they are QantasLink, Jetstar, Virgin Blue and Tigers Airways. QantasLink flies to airports in Brisbane, Cairns, Gladstone, Rockhampton and Townsville from Mackay. Jetstar only flies to Brisbane, Tiger Airways only flies to Melbourne and finally Virgin Blue only goes to Brisbane and Sydney via this airport. The airport is only a regional airport so it ...

Bowen, Queensland 25/05/2008

A boring town in Queensland...

Bowen, Queensland Bowen is a town located on the eastern coast of Queensland in Australia. I visited the town while I was travelling down the easter side of Australia and used it as a base for visiting the Whitsunday's and it was near other places like Townsville, Mackay, Airlie Beach and Shute harbour. There is also The Giant Mango situated on the edge of Bowen because there is a type of mango called Bowen Mango. Although, i personally among everyone else i know who has been to Bowen has come to the same conclusion as i did, apart from the nice beaches and a few shops, there's nothing to do in actual Bowen. However, it's in a good location to be used as a base though as it is near so many of the places you would want to visit. On the other hand, the beaches are a big attraction, there are eight beaches in total, which are Kings Beach, Queens Beach, Horseshoe Bay, Murrays Bay, Grey Bay, Rose Bay and the Front Beach, Coral Bay and the Front Beach. My favourite beaches were Horsehoe Bay and Rose Bay, but they all had their individual features. Front beach - This is the beach I visited the least, but it has parklands, BBQ's and playground, it's close to the town and marine, there's accomodation nearby and some spectacular views. Horseshoe Bay - This is one of my favourites because this is where I did some snorkelling and where i saw a flat fish close up in the water and a few fish. It's a very good beach for snorkelling. The other facilities include a cafe and restaurant, punlic toilets, ...

Fantasea Cruises 25/05/2008

Fantastic experiences with Fantasea Cruises

Fantasea Cruises Fantasea Cruises is an Australian based cruise company in the Whitsunday's area in Queensland which can take you to see the Great Barrier Reef and to some of the main islands. The main islands it travels to are Daydream Island and Hamilton Island, which are the nearest to the mainland point you get the cruises from, Shute Harbour. However, they also travel to Whitehaven Beach and Reefworld, and sometimes to the Long Island Resort. Reefworld is a must visit when travelling with Fantasea Cruises because it's the place they use for snorkelling and scuba diving tours. It's an excellent place to experience the Great Barrier Reef, and they provide you with good service and quite good facilities, however, there are no changing rooms and you have to use the toilet on the boat. They also have a viewing chamber and a submarine type thing because it's not a proper submarine, but it's very similar to a submarine so you don't have to go scuba diving or snorkelling to experience the beautiful, pretty fish and corals. In the day trip to Reefworld you get four hours there which gives you plenty of time to have lunch, go scuba diving or snorkelling, have a look at the viewing chamber and go on the submarine at least once. The viewing chamber is open throughout and there are three submarine trips. They also provide certified and introductory divers courses for the first time divers. Reefworld has many species of fish that liver there. There are some long term underwater ...

General: Queensland (Australia) 22/05/2008

Amazing Queensland

General: Queensland (Australia) I visited Queensland when I went to Australia earlier this year. I went to many of the well known parts of Queensland and some other less common places including, Mission Beach, Cairns, Port Douglas, Townsville, Mackay and the Bowen area. However, because there are so many places to visit in that part of Australia, I didn't manage to fit everything in. The Queensland state is generally a very nice place, I certainly really enjoyed myself. The weather is fantastic, slightly varied depending on which part you're in. There's the very Northern part that is in the rainforest so you get a heavy shower nearly every day, however, because it's so hot you don't mind that it rains because you need to cool down and it doesn't usually last long. Then further south you got the dry tropics which are completely different, hardly rains there and there's a more dry heat compared to the humid heat in Northern Queensland. However, both types of weather are pleasant but you would probably find the dry heat in the dry tropics a bit much after a while because it takes some getting used to particularly if you have just come from the Rainforest area up north like I did but it wasn't too bad when I went as I went at the end of the summer so it had already been cooling down. I thought there were so many things to do there; each place I visited was very different. I'll just let you know a bit about my favourite parts of the trip around Queensland to give you an idea of what it's like there. ~ ...

The Feelgood Drinks Co. Juices 20/05/2008

Refreshing drinks for the summer...

The Feelgood Drinks Co. Juices Firstly, Feel Good Drinks are a brand of drink aiming at a healthier option, they have some fizzy type juice drinks which are sparkling and also some more pure juices in their product range. One of their main products which are the ones I have tested out most are in between fruit juice and a fizzy drink which they have named Gently Sparkling Juice Drinks. They are not pure fruit juice, they have are slightly fizzy but not as much as the previous drinks I mentioned. You can get the drinks in two different bottle sizes, a small bottle which is 375ml and you can get it in a bigger bottle which is 750ml. You can also get the drinks in four different flavours in the smaller sized bottles and three flavours for the larger bottle size. You can get the drink in the following flavours for the smaller bottles, which are Cloudy Lemon, Orange & Passionfruit, Cranberry & Lime and Blackcurrant & Grape. In the larger size you can get the drink in all of the previous flavours except for some reason you can't get the Blackcurrant & Grape flavour in the larger size. I tend to get the larger size because the bottles are too heavy to carry round as a drink when I go out that i only usually drink these drinks at home because the bottles are made from glass. I have tried all flavours in the larger size, but my favourite flavour is Cloudy Lemon flavour because I can drink this as much as I want and I still don't get bored of it. I find it a very refreshing drink, especially in the summer when ...

Lucozade Original Energy 01/05/2008

My favourite energy drink...

Lucozade Original Energy I started drinking lucozade about 8 months ago when I was ill and struggling from extreme tiredness. I play tennis regularly but because i have chronic fatigue syndrome it's sometimes hard for me to do it because i don't have much energy, however, i started drinking lucozade after i had tried various other things and i was surprised at how affective it was. I had previously been trying Diet Coke but because it had alot of sugar it can be bad for you so i wanted to try something else because i was concerned that it could damage my teeth and it can make you put on weight because it's very sugary. Well anyway, i first used lucozade original just to test it out and i only used it when i needed it. It has really helped me i'm able to do the level of activity i used to be able to do before i got ill with lucozade. I don't use it as often now as i am recovering from the extreme fatigue problem but when i need it, it's very effective. There are many lucozade products, the one i have recently found effective is the small lucozade alert drink which is smaller than the original bottles of lucozade and it's more caffeine than the others i think but i think it's nicer than the others. I also reccomend this drink to anyone who does heavy sports activity because it just gives you a little boost if you have been doing sport. These products are also used by some professional sports athletes and footballers, premier league footballers use them, for example Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen. ...
