Quick Valentine Getaway!

Sometimes quick and spontaneous getaways is just what you need to getaway from your daily routine. So I decided to give a couple of suggestions that might be interesting for you. Since the first thing that pops to my mind when saying romantic is beach, I though Maldives would be the best suggestion.

Two hotels that I thought looked nice:

W Retreat & Spa Maldives: Which costs around 301KD per night and so far there are availablty for the beach house. This hotel was recommended by one of friends who loved the hotel so much!

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives: Which starts from 348KD per night and so far there are availabilities.

Maui is one of the islands in Hawaii, they call it magic isles. So what makes Maui special and what are the activities that could be done there?

Maui Ocean Center


Maui Pineapple Plantation Tour


Molokini Crater: just of South west Maui considered to be the best scuba spot


Whale watching


Snorkelling and Scuba diving


Surfing

Other activities:

-Horseback riding

Beaches of Maui:
You can find different types of beaches from white sand beaches to black sand beaches.

Wailea Beach: White sand beach

Black Sand Beach: Which is basically caused by Volcano rock mixed with sand. Something new! Definitely would want to experience it once.

No Bullfighting in Catalonia, Spain anymore!

Bull Fighting is a historical sport that has became a part of the Spanish culture. Started in the 8th century as a celebration of crowning of King Alfonso VIII, it has carried on since

However on 28 July 2010, Catalonia’s parliament, after a long debate, voted 68 to 55 (with nine nonparticipants) in favor of banning bullfighting in Catalonia.

Under Spanish law, citizens who collect at least 50,000 signatures within 120 days in support of a proposed change in the law may present that petition to the regional parliament, obliging the latter to debate and vote on the proposal.

The Catalan vote means Article 6 of the Animal Protection Act will strictly outlaw bullfights in Catalonia from 1 January 2012.
