Tenerife and Spain Holidays

Introducing Spain 
Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula, at the far
western end of Europe. In the last 50 years, Spain

has changed from being one of the most isolated
countries in the Western world to having global
connections. It is now an important and influential
country as part of the European Union, and Spanish
is the third most common language in the world,
after Chinese Mandarin and English.
gj Spain has three international borders, a short border with
Gibraltar, a British territory, and includes the Canary Islands.

The heart of Spain

Spain is divided into several
regions, each with different
landscapes and peoples. Ca-stile,
in the middle of the country,
is centred around the capital,
Madrid, and has a harsh
landscape of broad plains and
rugged mountains. The name
Castile means 'Land of Castles',
and there are many forts on the
hilltops of Castile. The people
who live there - Castilians - have
been the dominant force in Spain
since the fifteenth century. They
sponsored the first voyages of
discovery to the Americas and
established colonies there,
making Spain the world's first


major colonial power.

When it was built during the eighth
century, the mosque at Cordoba was
the second largest in the world, and it
was one of the most important places
in the Islamic Empire. The Moorish
influence can be seen in its architecture.

 The inside of the mosque at
Cordoba has more than 1,000
pillars supporting arches designed
in the Moorish style. It became
a Roman Catholic cathedral
in 1236 CE.

Lollipop Holidays in France

MOUNTAINS
France is separated from Spain by
mountains
the Pyrenees mountains in the
south. The Alps, in the south-east,
separate France from Italy and
Switzerland.

LOWLAND FRANCE
Most people in France live in the low,
flattish land in the north and south-west
of the country. Flat land is better
for farming. It is also easier to build
roads and buildings on flat land. There
are some low hills and valleys made by
rivers there, too.

Canals link many rivers. Rivers and
canals are used to move things
from place to place and for holiday boats.

THE WEATHER
Different parts of France have very
different weather. The south has hot,
dry summers and cool, wet winters.
The north and west are cooler all
year round.
It can be very cold in the east of France
in winter. When the wind blows from
the east, it brings cold air from the
frozen parts of Russia. The mountains
are coldest of all, with heavy snow in
winter. Summer in the south of France.
People work, shop and play games like
boules (in the picture) in the cooler mornings
or evenings.

PLANTS AND ANIMALS
There are not many places in France
where the land has not been cleared
for homes or farming. Even much of
the scrubland in the south has been
cleared.
The mountains and the wet
marshlands still have their natural
plants, although some areas of
marshland have been drained to use
for farming.
There are not many wild animals left
in France. There are some wolves
and wild boar in the mountains.
The south of France has bad weather, too. It has storms in
summer and a strong wind called the Mistral can blow at up to
100 kilometres per hour. The Carmargue marshland in
the south of France. Many animals and birds live wild
here - there are not many people.

Caribbean Holidays

Caribbean is one of the most known exotic holiday destination. People from all over the world travel to
Caribbean Islands for luxury Holidays.
As a result of the area's stormy history of invasion and slavery the Caribbean is populated by people from many different ethnic backgrounds. Few of the Caribbean's original inhabitants remain. The many different languages spoken reflect the wide range of places from which Caribbean peopled ancestors came. Most of the 36 million people who live in the Caribbean today are descended from those brought from West Africa in the 16th and 17th centuries to work as slaves on sugar plantations. The native Caribbean people were almost completely wiped out by European invaders.

The Caribbean is named after
the Carib Indians. They lived in
the lesser Antilles when the
first Spanish explorers arrived
in the 15th century The warlike
Caribs had driven out the
island's original inhabitants, the
Arawak Indians. People from many different ethnic
backgrounds mingle at a street market
on Curasao, in the lesser Antilles, The
first inhabitants of the Caribbean were
Arawak Indians.Visit: Cheap Sunmaster Holidays

About Mexico: This Page
Since ancient times, people have gathered together in communities


where they could share and trade resources and strive to build a
safe and happy environment. Gradually, as populations grew and
societies became more complex, communities expanded to become
nations - groups of people who felt sufficiently bound by a common
heritage to work together for a shared future.

Land has usually played an important role in defining a nation.
People have a natural affection for the landscape in which they grew
up. They are proud of its natural beauties - the mountains, rivers and
forests - and of the towns and cities that flourish there. People are
proud, too, of their nation’s history - the shared struggles and achievements
that have shaped the way they live today.

Religion, culture, race and lifestyle, too, have sometimes played a
role in fostering a nation’s identity. Often, though, a nation includes
people of different races, beliefs and customs. Many have come from
distant countries, and some want to preserve their traditional lifestyles.
Nations have rarely been fixed, unchanging things, either territorially
or racially. Throughout history, borders have changed, often
under the pressure of war, and people have migrated across the globe
in search of a new life or of new land, or because they are fleeing
from oppression or disaster. The world’s nations are still changing
today: some nations are breaking up and new nations are forming.
The modern nation of Mexico is the result of a meeting between
two great civilizations: that of the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica
and that of the Spanish empire that conquered the country in the
16th century. At first, the collision of these two civilizations was
wholly disastrous. The Spanish killed and enslaved the native peoples
and set out to destroy their cities, their art and their way of life. Over
the years, however, the peoples have intermingled and learnt to live
together. Today, Mexico’s largely mixed-'blood population can look
back on almost two centuries of history as an independent nation.

CYPRUS HOLIDAYS : Summer Songs, nature’s beauty

Cyprus reflects a shimmering Green oasis.  Splashes of intense summer are intensified everywhere in Cyprus.  Cyprus appears to be an exotic vacation destination.  Spirit of Cyprus is hidden away amidst the culture and hospitality of the people.  Perfect rejuvenating beauty can be perceived blended with the touch of modernism.  What makes Cyprus so special?  Probably a trip of four to five days will take you to the utmost charming island in the world.  Restorations and renovations have not disturbed the naturalism of Cyprus. 

Preserving the greenness is something special about the Cyprus lineage.  Investments from overseas is not a new reality, land prices and considerably lower taxes prompt many to be a part of this magic island.  Being a part of Mediterranean Sea, the beaches add to the beauty of Cyprus.  Experiencing Cyprus from distance gives a clear picture of green Old Island being embellished with peace and eternity.  As your home or may be your retirement, you can choose Cyprus to be the place for relaxation compared to a Spa or a massage that gives to your mind.


Less polluted air and thick forests stimulates your mind.  Temperatures do not exceed nor drops.  Stabilized climate and atmosphere makes this place more heavenly like a paradise on earth.  Breezes from the sea and the clear blue clouds draw many to the neck of the woods.  After a month in Cyprus, you will be as brown as a berry accomplishing tanned skin.  A major element that attracts many to this small place is the long-lasting summers.  Any time of the year is perfect for a holiday in Cyprus. 

Archaeological sites and water expeditions needs time to be enjoyed to the fullest.  Once you are in Cyprus, you are given the carte Blanche in Cyprus.  Climate is cooler in the Troodos transforming the mountains for expeditions like hiking and a perfect hang out with your kin and kith.  Cyprus beauty is so natural that you will misunderstand for a figment of imagination.  Locals of Cyprus are too bold and they even try the foreigners out of the shell in order to enjoy to the maximum. 

Being a major business centre, immense sites and museums are yet to be explored.  The crowds decrease in the winter that is by November.  However, summers are crowded with locals and tourists, yet there is no spot of pollution or dirt in the suburbs.Visit : Low Cost Direct Holidays

Travel Australia : Climate and Weather

When you planning to book your holiday to Australia, you should consider the wild weather conditions in this continent.
From November to March, hot monsoon winds from the north
bring heavy downpours of rain. Each year, northern Australia
has at least 100 mm (40 inches) of rain. During the summer,
violent tropical storms, known as typhoons, sometimes strike
the coast, causing terrible damage. During the rainy season, northeast
Australia is lashed by sudden downpours of
heavy rain.

Cooler places
The south and southeast coast has hot, sunny summers
and mild, cool winters. In most parts of this region, winter temperatures never reach freezing point, but the Snowy Mountains are covered with snow each winter. The island of Tasmania to the south has a cooler

climate than mainland Australia, with rain all year round. Further south, New Zealand has a much colder and wetter climate. Holiday deals to Australia:
