The Maltese archipelago (a chain or cluster of islands that are formed tectonically), consisting of Malta, Gozo and Comino, they are Europes best kept secrets.
I would venture that you have probably not heard of them.

The three largest islands Malta Island, Gozo, and Comino are the only ones inhabited. Malta is the largest of the islands and its capital is Valletta. Malta is in the central Mediterranean Sea (eastern), south of the Italian island of Sicily and north of Libya.
The people speak Maltese and English, its part of the European Union and its currency is the Euro.

The temperature in the summer will reach the high 80s and 50 in winter. The water temperature will reach the high 70s in summer and mid 60s in autumn and winter.
The humidity maintains 70% year round.

Most of the visitors to Malta arrive by either cruise ships to the city of Grand Harbor
or to Maltas capital Valletta by European low cost airlines.

Malta has a rich history dating back to when man first arrived around 5200 BC. So not only will you have the amenities of resorts to enjoy, also the history of the past to explore.
The top archaeological attraction is the UNESCO-designated Hal Saflieni
Hypogeum temple ruins, an underground necropolis (large cemetery or burial ground) and the world’s only underground prehistoric temple dating back to 4000 B.C. to 2000 B.C. It is unique in that nowhere else in the world has a temple been carved out completely underground. Another historic structure is the seventeenth-century St. Paul’s Cathedral in Mdina, built to honor St. Paul who was shipwrecked on the island.

Besides the archaeological attractions, the beaches draw hundreds of thousand of people to Malta each year. The largest stretch of beach is in the town of Melliha at Ghadira Beach. The Mellieha resort in Malta is a prime destination for tourists especially from England and northern Europe. For more ideas on places to stay visit http://www.greatvacationspots.net/

Diving in Malta is also a main attraction at the western side of peninsula from Paradise Bay to Anchor Bay. The western side has caves and unspoiled lagoons to explore. Being in the Mediterranean Malta is in the mist of many shipwrecks.

Other attractions are hiking in the countryside to megalithic temples. In Mdina explore the Dingli Cliffs just a couple of mile from town, with their white cliffs towering over the sea and the hiking paths along the coast. Sailing is also a popular attraction with many charters offering tours to the three main islands, originating in the large marinas around Silema, Mellieha.

While Malta offers the usual vacation activities such as resorts, hiking, diving, its the unique archaeological attractions that will really add to the experience making it a great vacation spot.

Named by the ancient Mayans who once lived there, Cozumel translates to land of the swallows the indigenous birds that inhabit the island. The island on the east side of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico is a land mass 30miles long and 10miles wide.

The popularity of the island has developed over the last 50 years starting in 1959 with discover and documentarist Jacques Cousteau discovering and publicizing the coral reefs at the south of Cozumel Island as one of the best places for scuba diving in the world.
In 1992 Cozumel built a deepwater pier for cruise ships to dock and in the 1996 the Mexican government established the Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park to protect the marine life in the park boundaries. The island population has grown from 12,000 in the 1970s to approximately 100,000 today as tourism grew.

Known for it beautiful coral reefs, diving, sports fishing, snorkeling, and beaches. Scuba diving is the most popular attraction of Cozumel today. There are also tours of the ancient Mayan civilizations for your enjoyment. The interior of the island is underdeveloped covered by thick forest and lagoons making it home to many birds and small mammals.

Most people arrive to Cozumel by the means of cruise ships, as it has become a stopping point in many cruise liness Caribbean destination. With thousands of visitors daily, it is imperative that you plan your visit to make the best use of the time youll have on the island. For more ideas on places to stay visit http://www.greatvacationspots.net/

The sandy beaches on the west side of the island have calmer waters making them best for swimming. But not for snorkeling since the sandy sea decreases the visibility in the water. Instead go to the limestone areas on the west for snorkeling. The east side of the island is lovely but the surf creates strong breakers and undertows, making it very dangerous. The popular beaches on the west side are Playa San Francisco, Playa Sol, and Playa Corona. The east side beaches are Punta Chiquero, Playa Chen Rio, and Playa Orinte.

If you are coming for a short stay and want to see the island, I recommend renting a taxi for the day to take you around the island; they can leave you at one of the beaches or other popular site if you want to stay. There will be plenty of taxis to take you back to the cruise dock afterwards. This way you wont waste time trying to get around and find the attractions yourself, since many places and streets are not well marked.

If you want to visit a well kept secret vacation spot, Grenada West Indies is the right choice. This place is not among the over-crowded vacation places filled with tourists. In this island, you can see many unique antivities true to its culture. Grenada West Indies is not a high night island with activities that bring many tourists swarming. This place is quiet and quaint with picturesque beaches and small towns.

 

Grenada, West Indies is a mountainous island with rolling hills.  It is known for its unique fragrance.  Nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, ginger and cocoa trees cover the island creating delicious and intoxicating smells throughout the entire island.  Grenada West Indies Island is a volcanic island filled with cascading waterfalls and lush rain forests.  Grenada features one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the world. 

 

This island nation consists of the island of Granada as well as six other small islands in the Southwestern Caribbean Sea.  The Capital of the Island is St George’s.  The city capital of St George’s is considered to be the most beautiful in the Caribbean.  The history over the ownership of this island displays much struggle and battle over their independence including violent coups.  In 1983, a communist regime took over Grenada West Indies and everyone on the island was informed that they must remain indoors or they would be shot.  President Reagan was concerned for 800 American students enrolled in medical school in St George’s.  The Unites States along with other nations such as RSS and Jamaica overthrew the regime.  The Grenadian Constitution was again put in authority and peace was restored.

 

Grenada, West Indies islands are each volcanic and have rich and healthy soil.  The flag has a nutmeg on it, demonstrating the industry of spices.  The climate is humid and hot during a rainy season and cooled by winds during the dry season.  Grenada is just beginning to focus on tourism.  The culture of the land can still be felt and tasted.  Enjoy the island’s world renowned, two mile long beach.  This beautiful island will take your breath away with its extraordinary beauty and grace.  Visit the Spice of the Caribbean and enjoy the intoxicating smell and beauty of Grenada West Indies.

Vacation season is here, and the Flip Mino-HD is a great camcorder to take with you:

It’s small enough to fit in your pants or shirt pocket
You can fire it up in just a few seconds, and shoot a moment that might otherwise be lost
You don’t have to mess with settings
It’s unobtrusive enough that you’re more likely to catch priceless candid moments
Going to Disney World or another theme park? Grab the terror in the eyes of your loved ones on those thrill rides.

The list goes on. This is a camcorder you can take with you and use in situations that you otherwise probably couldn’t or wouldn’t.

If you take along a laptop, you can download your clips in the hotel room, and recharge your Flip from the laptop (but see the notes below.)  You can look at the clips of the day, save the good ones on your computer, and toss the rest, clearing out the Flip’s memory for the next day’s adventures.

Here are some tips for making your vacation videos better:

Think about how to steady your shots. Plant your elbows against your chest, or steady the camera against a tree or fence post.
If you’re inclined to shoot video from the car (which is a tricky business, at best), shoot through a clean windshield, and avoid shooting out the side windows, which just gives you a lot of motion blur and very few usable shots.
Keep your imagination engaged with the story you’re telling. The story is about what happens, more than about what is.
On a two-week vacation, there may be only one or two shots that catch the essence of a day. Look for those shots.

There are a couple of accessories to consider taking along with you. To keep your Flip’s battery charged, consider one of these:
Whether you’re on a plane, in a car, or in a foreign country, you should be able to re-charge your Flip. From my own experience, charging from the USB port on a laptop doessn’t always work. There are many kinds of battery chargers available.
Mini-tripods can give you a steady shot from any flat surface — table top or car hood.
Collapsiple monopods are small and in the scale for use with a Flip.
