Written by: Maria Lazgin Ciercielli Paris, France Photo Credit- Kazi Tina, Shutterstock.com The capital of Morocco, Rabat, is a scenic seaside city that holds much to discover. It is home to great beaches, historic landmarks and one of Morocco’s largest modern art museums. There is something here for everyone! You definitely want to take the time to experience Rabat, as well as its surrounding cities. Like Marrakesh, Rabat is a Moroccan city that is a good home base for your vacation. The exciting cities of Fez, Casablanca, Salé and Témara are not far away and they will further enrich your understanding of Morocco. My favorite part of Rabat is the Kasbah of the Oudayas, which features a neighborhood of blue homes and streets that overlook the ocean. The blue architecture crea

Written by: Maria Lazgin Ciercielli Paris, France Photo- Ilyasse Larousssi, Kazi Tina, Shutterstock Thoughts of Morocco inspire images of flowing desert sands, bustling souks with spices piled high, and shiny silver teapots full of mint tea. These scenes are all exciting, and I want to add a few more to your mind. Morocco has a beautiful variety of climates and landscapes, and it would be easy for you to want to take multiple vacations to see it all. Marrakesh, known for its souks and tourism, is one of the most popular cities to visit in Morocco. For many people, like me, this city lends a first glimpse into the wonder of this country. It is easy to travel around Marrakesh by taxi, for not more than one to three euros a ride. Make sure the driver uses the meter though! These taxi...

Written By : Kazi Tina Paris, France Suddenly Mr. English said, “E know uptonpaakiz pretty much of an Asian place! With Asian piiiple !” “Oh really! ” “You will find lot of Indian and Bangladeshi shops and people there.” This man might have thought that this girl cannot make a proper conversation in English, that is why she is going to Upton Park.

Written By : Kazi Tina Paris, France Day: Some day in April Place: St Pancras International Station, London Weather: Presence of Sun, freaky weather though I arrived in London for the first time in my life on a day like this. I was rather well informed about every single useful detail about the city, such as, the London metro, the address of my hostel, how to go there, which station to get off at and what kind of ticket to buy. There shouldn’t be any big problem apart from the fact that I didn’t get the difference between Oyster card and traveler card. These are actually two types of metro tickets and I needed to know more about it. So without hesitating much I went to the ticket counter and asked the counter guy which ticket to buy, Oyster Card or traveler card. The response was

  Written By : Kazi Tina Paris, France   And the Hero appeared ! I know that the hero of a story doesn’t come at the end of it and we wouldn’t have made the title like this since it would end the curiosity of the readers. The fact is I wasn’t expecting neither a hero nor a story. I went there as an ignorant tourist and all that I was getting was beyond my expectations. So I’ve no right to pretend to be intelligent, by writing an organized story. I’m merely noting down what happened to me, step by step, staying as close to the facts as possible. If it adds up to look like story I would say that I’m plain lucky. If there is a hero, the credit goes entirely to this wall. Coming back to the point; after the “DH Reiter’s” artwork and the creative writing “Need Weeds”, I

  Written By : Kazi Tina Paris, France My breakfast: Morning tea, coffee and a packet of chips that I’ve eaten because of my anxiety had been completely digested. I could feel the butterflies inside my stomach. Just then a small, round Japanese man answered me with his half-closed eyed smile, “There is the Berlin Wall!” I looked on my right. There was really something that looked like a wall, but is that the Berlin wall? I crossed the road to get a closer look at it. There was a steel plate with, “East Side Gallery” written on it. Below it was written, “Mauer Berliner”. No need to say that meant Berlin Wall. It had been two days that I was in Berlin. I had come here to visit my friend Nasty and not to see the wall. That was put in my schedule by my boss. My boss believe
The Magical Philly

The Magical Philly

  Srijanee Biswas Ohio, USA There's something magical about Philadelphia - whether it's the gridiron streets, the striking murals adorning the city buildings, the historical monuments that coexist in perfect synergy with the soaring skyscrapers or simply, the whiff of fresh pretzels as one strolls along the city's numerous open-air markets. We were on a quest to absorb this and everything else that the ‘Birthplace of America’ had to offer. Our tryst with Philly's historical adventures led us to Center and Old City, as we marveled at the sheer elegance of City Hall, Grand Masonic Lodge, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross (creator of the First American flag) House, and Elfreth's Alley. As the Liberty Bell was closed during our visit, we stepped into this quaint little souvenir sho

Hawaii volcano eruption costs tourism industry millions

  Image Source  >> AP NewsRoom By Caleb Jones and Sophia Yan , Associated Press Pahoa, Hawaii (AP) — People nixing vacations to Hawaii's Big Island has cost the tourism industry millions of dollars as the top attraction, Kilauea volcano, keeps spewing lava. Cancellations from May through July have hit at least $5 million, said Ross Birch, executive director of the island's tourism board. The booking pace for hotels and other activities, such as tours for lava viewing, zip lines and glass bottom boats have fallen 50 percent. A handful of cruise ships have also decided not to come into port even in Kona on the west side of the island, about 80 miles (129 kilometers) away from the volcano. This is the "first leak we're seeing out of the bucket," Birch said. Touri
