Good tips for green travels #2


If you wanna stay somewhere at all and want to be nice to your wallet, couchsurfing is the thing.

Many may feel we live in insecure times. And many feel Air-BnB is the thing to travel more green and economic. It may be, but not without controversy. Air-BnB is not supporting the local economy or democracy as much as couchsurfing is. Sharing for free, discovering the local ways, people and life creates bonds stronger than trails of money.* Couchsurfing doesn't require any extra building or people to move while othersare using the service. That's energy saving beyond any other type of accomodation.

It works simply by you loan a couch, bed, beds, room, rooms or apartment by other human beings. And when you have the opportunity, you lend out what you yourself have the capacity to. You set the criterias, and you serach among the criteria of others. Our experiences have been very good and none bad. Especially if you gather over food-cooking or... Show more...
 
Now that I’m back home at one mile above sea level, I had a fun, sciency moment when I opened the travel-sized tubes of face soap and lotion that I had packed at sea level and they splooged out their contents due to the air pressure imbalance. Nice to know that I can still be so easily amused.

PR2FLO Lagedo - Fajã Grande


Almost two-thirds into our 13KM stomp along Lajedo - Fajã Grande. Flores Island is a nature lover's / hikers dream. Epic coastlines and waterfalls. The camera and Lowepro Photo Hatchback survived the slimy, wet crossing much better then the hiker.

The self-supported Transcontinental cycle race from the Black Sea in Bulgaria to France’s Atlantic coast is the toughest test of its kind

As I rolled along quiet lanes in the mountains of Serbia, a ferocious barking delivered a jolt of adrenaline and canine feet approached my bike fast from the side. I longed for the crashing sound of dog-on-fence, followed by angry snarls at my disappearing back wheel.

Every town and village here seemed to have a pack of wild dogs, though, and there was no fence to stop them. It was worse at night when the streets were deserted, the dogs bolder and my fear deeper. One movement in the darkness and, as my light picked out bared white teeth ahead, the chase was on. My tactic was to sprint as fast as I could, hoping to avoid the bite that would divert me to hospital for a series of rabies jabs. I survived around 100 chases and didn’t hear of a single bite in the 265-strong field. We were lucky.

Anonymous investors have launched a hostile €25m bid for Sóller’s locally owned heritage train link to Palma

Indignant residents of the Mallorcan town of Sóller have said their railway is not for sale after a group of investors launched a hostile takeover bid.

The town has been linked to the capital, Palma, with a picturesque narrow-gauge railway since 1912. The train, with its wooden carriages, has been in continuous use ever since, climbing 200 metres and passing through 13 tunnels on its 27km journey.
Hands off our treasured railway, say locals in Sóller, Mallorca

Italian minister proposes plan for diverting a third of big ships to other ports by next year

Italy’s transport minister has proposed a plan for diverting massive cruise ships from Venice’s historic centre, with a view to rerouting a third of the vessels by next year.

Danilo Toninelli told a parliamentary hearing on Wednesday that the ships could gradually be shifted away from the Marittima terminal and instead dock at Fusina, a small port on mainland Venice, or Lombardia, a privately owned terminal. The minister suggested that the rerouting process could begin in September.
Venice cruise ships could be rerouted from city centre next month

Nothing can #travel #faster than light. But what if we switched the #rules a #little? #Imagine a #world, where the speed of light was #slower. Way slower. About the speed that sound #travels at. In #turn, the sound in that #hypothetical world would be #accelerated until it reached the speed of light.
How would the sound and the light #look?
