The capital of Chile, Santiago is also the centre of its largest cities combined. It is located in the country’s central valley, at an elevation of 1,706.04 feet above mean sea level.

Santiago has been the capital city since 1541. The city has a downtown conglomeration of neoclassical architecture of the 19th century and winding side-streets.  Other styles include art deco, neo-gothic, and many more.  Santiago’s cityscape is formed by stand-alone hills and the Mapocho River, lined by parks like the Parque Forestal. Mountains of the Andes chain can be viewed from various points in the city. These mountains are responsible for a significant smog problem, especially during winter time. The vineyards surround the city’s outskirts.

A  Modern Metropolis

Santiago’s stable economy over the past years has transformed it into a modern metropolis. The city now houses growing theaters, restaurant scenes, dozens of shopping centres, and extensive suburban development. The skyline is rising, with the tallest building in Latin America, the Gran Torre. There are several major universities and modern transportation and infrastructure facilities, including a toll-based, urban freeway system and the Metro de Santiago.

The Plaza de Armas or Central Square which lies along the Alameda about five blocks south of the river is home to the Cathedral of Santiago.  Other buildings surrounding the Plaza de Armas are the Central Post Office Building, which was completed in 1882, and the Palacio de la Real Audiencia de Santiago, constructed within 1804 and 1807. It houses the Chilean National History Museum, with 12,000 items on exhibit. On the southeast junction of the square is the Commercial Edwards building, which was established in 1893.

The Casa Colorada built in 1769, houses the Museum of Santiago.  Nearby is the Municipal Theatre of Santiago, constructed in 1857 by the French architect Brunet of Edward Baines that was damaged by an earthquake in 1906. The Subercaseaux Mansion and the National Library, one of the largest libraries of South America, are both located within the same vicinity. Other structures include the former National Congress Building, the Royal Customs Palace, and the Justice Palace situated near each other.

The Costanera Center, finished in 2009 includes shopping, entertainment, and housing venues. The project, with a total area of 600,000 square meters, includes the tallest building in South America, the 300-meter high Gran Torre Santiago.

Funky cafes and dance clubs are offered in the metropolis.  Forest Park art collections are from pre-Columbian to contemporary.  Architecture dates back to the 16th-century with the San Francisco Church.  Today’s mirrored office towers are also booming.  Shopping with locals at Mall Panora¡mico and remembering hearty Chilean meals are some of the fun activities at Santiago.

Hot Chilean Cuisine

Chilean cuisine comes from the fusion of traditional Spanish cuisine, Chilean native culture and local ingredients, with European influences particularly from Germany, France, and Italy.

Recipes from the central regions of Chile include Sopa de Mariscos: A soup of mixed seafood; .Locos con Mayonesa (“Locos with mayonnaise”), usually served with lettuce and potato salad; Palta Reina: avocado stuffed with chicken salad, prawns, tuna,  and other fillings;Tomates Rellenos: stuffed tomatoes, filled with sweet corn, mayonnaise, and other ingredients.The Pastel de choclo: a layered pie,in a deep dish or a clay paila with chopped beef.

Recipes from southern Chile comprise the Merkén: a traditional Mapuche condiment, out of dried and smoked red chillis ground to a fine powder. It is used as seasoning for all kinds of dishes. Others are the Araucana, Kollongka, or Mapuche Chicken which are famous for their light blue green eggs.  Caldillo de Almejas: Clam soup.  Chupe de Locos: a rich stew from the loco or Chilean abalone. There are many other recipes available in many restaurants.

The capital city of the State of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil’s second largest city; that is Rio de Janeiro, the Marvelous City or the Cidade Maravilhosa.  It is also the third metropolitan area in South America, with 6.3 million people in the city proper, hence the 6th largest in the Americas. In the world this city is the 26th largest. A portion of the city has been recognized as a World Heritage Site and is named as “Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea”, declared by UNESCO on 1 July 2012 in the Cultural Landscape category.

The city was the capital of Brazil for nearly two centuries, from 1763 to 1815 during the Portuguese colonial era, 1815 to 1821 as the capital of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and Algarves, and 1822 to 1960 of Brazil as an independent nation. Wow! There must really be something in this city that many nations are very much attracted to.

Sight

The idea of constructing a large statue on top of Corcovado was first thought of in the mid-1850s, when Catholic priest Pedro Maria Boss requested funding from Princess Isabel to build a huge religious monument. Princess Isabel did not consider the idea and therefore was just dismissed in 1889. Another proposal for a landmark statue on the mountain was made by the Catholic Circle of Rio in 1920. The group conceptualized an event the Semana do Monumento (“Monument Week”) to raise donations and collect signatures in support of the building of the statue. Majority of the donations came from Brazilian Catholics. The designs considered for the “Statue of the Christ” included a representation of the a statue of Jesus with a globe in his hands, Christian cross, and a pedestal symbolizing the world. The statue of Christ the Redeemer with open arms which is a symbol of peace was chosen.

The Structure

A local engineer, Heitor da Silva Costa designed the statue. It was sculpted by Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski. A group of engineers and technicians studied Landowski’s proposals and the decision was to build the structure out of reinforced concrete (designed by Albert Caquot) instead of steel, more suited for the cross-shaped statue. The outer layers are soapstone, chosen for its enduring qualities and ease of use. Construction lasted for nine years, from 1922 to 1931. The monument was opened on October 12, 1931. The statue was supposed to be lit by a battery of floodlights triggered remotely 5,700 miles away but poor weather affected the signal and the lightings had to be done in Rio itself.

Further restoration work was conducted in 1990. And in 2003, more work on the statue and its environs was conducted.  A set of elevators, escalators, and walkways were installed to access the platform around the statue. The four-month restoration in 2010 focused on the statue itself. The internal structure of the statue was renovated and its soapstone mosaic exterior was restored by removing microorganisms like fungi and small cracks were repaired. The lightning rods and lighting fixtures were fixed.

The Hosting

The Games of the XXXI Olympiad (Jogos da XXXI Olimpíada), is a major international multi-sport event due to be celebrated in the tradition of the Olympic Games, as governed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The host city of the 2016 Summer Olympics will be Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as announced at the 121st IOC Session held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 2, 2009. They games are to be held from August 5 to 21, 2016. There will be 30 competition areas, many in Barra da Tijuca, the others in three other zones: Copacabana, Maracanã and Deodoro,

The sight, the structure, and the hosting all speak of underlying resources, beauty and pride. A marvel indeed and a gem meant to be shared and appreciated.

Every once in a while, there rises within us a desire to get away, far from the noise and hustle of our complicated modern lives. We spend most of our time living in an environment where everything is man made..Our homes, our work places, even our holiday destinations are often just a change of scenery; swapping one concrete jungle for another.

We are plugged in all the time, online and accessible to the entire world. It can get to the point where you simply want to grab your partner by the hand and run, be free, leave all the chaos behind. Indeed, many couples today, particularly the ones that live and work in cities, are looking for a vacation from their vacations, so to speak. And so they travel Into the Wild.

Picture a beautiful hut out in the wilderness, you and your special someone sitting in the lap of nature, cosily cuddling by the fire, listening to the sounds of the jungle that envelops you on all sides. This is the sort of experience modern couples are looking for- an adventure out of the ordinary, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at these jungle getaways.

There’s also huge biodiversity, several endangered species of plants and animals call these forests home.

The migration happens between August and November, but the Masai Mara has plenty of other attractions all year: lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes and sometimes elephants, all set against a breathtaking background and romantic golden sunsets.

Adventure Tour, Peru

If you are an active couple, a trek through the ecological wonderland of Peru is just the thing for you. Hike through lush mountain valleys, with the endangered Andean Condor gliding overhead.

Anyone can surf here, even first timers, and the beaches aren’t as crowded as other popular surfing destinations. Step back and enjoy the fabulous view of the horizon, as you and your partner watch the sun set into the sea.

Cruise travel is nowadays not restricted only to Caribbean beaches and the glaciers of Alaska. The itineraries presented by many travel houses offer a lot more unique destinations.

There are more unique experiences on offer and we present the top 7 uncommon cruise ideas.

1. The Amazon

The Amazon River, is the mightiest river in the world which is flanked by the renowned rainforest.

On this cruise you will go deep into the reserve and encounter a variety of wild animals like gray dolphins, sloths and birds. You’ll also pass by local cultures & villages and even make some stops to interact with local people.

Along the way you will see endangered animals like seals, walruses and arctic foxes. You can even commemorate the accomplishment by taking a hot air balloon ride.

4. The Black Sea

The Black Sea remains the cruise world’s best kept secret. Experience the Mediterranean sea & visit fantastic ports such as Athens & Istanbul. There are also options of Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria.

Many Black Sea cruises are up to 14 days long in order to get you to really experience everything.

Couples, whether married or not, can travel together. In fact, this is when they get to spend a lot of quality time together, especially if they seldom see each other back in their busy day-to-day lives. For most couples, going on a vacation together is one of the precious moments they can cherish for the rest of their days.

If you want to travel as a couple, here are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

1. Cost

When you travel as a couple, you have the option to split the expenses. A man paying for all the expenses is an old tradition and couples are now modern and open minded. Everything becomes light and easy if shared, so couples have great advantage when it comes to expenses and money matters.

2. Time

Some couples seldom see each other due to the nature of their work. The only time that they get to spend time together is during a vacation. If you travel with your partner, you can have the quality time you need in order to catch up and deepen your relationship and commitment to each other.

3. Sharing

A couple may share in everything. Aside from the expenses, one of the best things they get is good memories together. Being with someone you love on a foreign land is a good way of sharing your love for each other.

4. Care

For couples, taking care of each other comes naturally. When in other places, you tend to care for each other more. In case of danger, the other partner can also come to the rescue.

Downfall of Having a Travel Partner

After learning the benefits, it is also important to know the disadvantages of traveling as a couple. Though ideally, it is a positive memory to have, there are instances when it becomes a challenge for both of you.

If you have an argument before going on a vacation, the tendency is for you to bring the conflict with you. This is something that every couple should avoid because it can ruin the whole vacation. If possible, settle everything first before going on a vacation.

Being together for several days can also initiate conflicts. If you are not used to being together day and night, a few days of vacation may cause a fight due to having individual differences. For some couples, arguments are inevitable, so try to focus on the fun parts of your vacation as much as possible, and give each other room to breathe when necessary.

Being with a partner can limit your opportunities to meet new people. There are some couples whose world only revolves around each other. In such cases, the idea of meeting others isn’t an option. If your partner is conservative, that may also limit you from talking to strangers or finding new friends.

Generally, travelling is a fun activity especially when shared with the people you love. Whether you are with a partner, family, or friends, make sure that every minute together is cherished.

Shocking, I know, but there are some people in this world who have very little interest in traveling. For some reason, visiting different places just does not interest them.

On the other hand, there are also a lot of people who never stop seeing the beauty of the world.

The Concept of Comfort Zone

When talking about comfort zones, the idea is living normally and doing the things that people are familiar with. Normally, people love to stay within their comfort zones because there are no surprises, nothing unexpected.

But in order to change and grow, the first thing you need to do is to get outside your comfort zone. Only then will you be able to do something different and change yourself for the better.

How Traveling Can Get You Out of Your Comfort Zone

For non-travelers, their comfort zone is their home town or the place where they have lived their whole life. This is the same place that they see every single day, and the place where they spend most of their time. To stay within such a comfort zone can also become boring over time.

One way of breaking the monotony and getting out of your comfort zone is through trave.  By traveling, you are able to visit different places that have diverse tradition, culture, customs, people and more.

For a person who seldom goes out and prefers to stay within the comfort zone, traveling is a highly recommended activity because:

1. You get to visit different places

Traveling can bring you to places that you have never been to before. If in your hometown you only have a park to visit, you may have a different adventure in other places such as mountain trekking or rock climbing. In such a way, you are doing what you have never done before.

2. You get to experience the people

In every place you visit; you can receive warm hospitality from the people. In this way, you get to learn about them and experience what they do within their comfort zone.

3. You get to try something different

Every place is unique and travelers may do out-of-the-ordinary things when in other places. Some places offer extra ordinary activities that are not found in your hometown.

4. You get to immerse in a different culture

Learning the culture of the people is always part of traveling. Most places have rich culture and this is one of the things that travelers shouldn’t miss. In fact, culture is one of the most interesting things that should be learned.

5. You get to learn new things

Traveling is always accompanied with adventures and new things. For most travelers, this is one of the main goals that they need to accomplish. When you visit a place, make sure to bring something with you when you go home. It may not necessarily be a souvenir item, but an intangible thing that can be cherished for the rest of your life. If you are on a foreign land, make sure to learn new things and share them with other people.

With all the great benefits that people can get from traveling, it is indeed one of the best ways to get outside your comfort zone. Warning: Traveling can be addictive.
