Control News Before you Live your House

Travel news are sometimes very important for those who wants to visit dangerous places of our world. Here are some last updates you have to know before you live your house.

Pilgrims to the Holy River Jordan where Jesus Christ was baptized could find the place of their pilgrimage closed from the Israelian part. The reason is the high pollution of the river with pesticides and industrial wastes and the possibility to meet swimming bombs and other explosive objects.

The river Jordan is on the 3 place among the most visiting Christian Holy places after the temple of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and Nativity church in Bethlehem and is visited by 100 ooo persons for christening every year.

Israele invested great sums to improve it's part of the river.

Discounted directions this summer
Different touristic paradises offer hard discounts this summer (reported in the news). All those who had strikes and disturbances: Greece, Thailand, Spain, Italy and Hainan

If you dreamed to visit corrida, you have to be in a hurry to book your trip. The Parlament of Catalonia decided to forbid it from 2012.

Because it was the great -if not the main- tourist attraction and the great industry for the region, they have to adopt something similar but without killing the animals, I think.

Hot Days Tourists' Sufferings

Do you like to travel when the temperature is so high? I really don't. The news in TV show every day crowds of tourists in the streets of Rome and other big touristic centers of Italy. They walk, covered with umbrellas, drink water from the bottles and bath themselves in different kinds of pools and fountains. I do not understand these mad persons. I would never go out under the sun when it's rays are so terrible.

Well, it depends from the time when they can take their vacation. And maybe they have not other possibility to visit these places in an other period. But it's suicide.

I remember, we had to accompany my mother-in-law in Rome in August. It was terribly hot but we decided to rest there for one day and to visit Vatican. I had shorts and a vest top on and did not know it's forbidden to enter the S. Peter's basilica if not completely covered. But I do not stand hot and felt really bad that day. I had giddiness and very law blood pressure. But I wanted to visit basilica so much! Who knows, when I'll have this possibility next time, I thought... In fact, I was not there more.

(If you have to visit basilica, you have to cross this bridge and turn left, as I did. The basilica is about 500 meters from here)

So, as said, I went to the basilica alown: my husband remained to wait near the car because we did not know the city and did not know where to park it, the car, for a moment. No, if you think to visit a big city, it's better to take pubblic transport. You save not only money but many troubles too.

I felt too bad near one of the shops not far from basilica and fall down on it's stairs. The girls in the shop have seen me and gave me water with sugar. It happens very often here, they said. Imagine, they had that water just ready in the shop for those mad like me. I thought about those completely covered persons intended to visit the basilica and about Swiss guards weared with lounge suits. My husband laughs till today when we remember how those bad guards did not allow me to enter in basilica but I just told you that story.

From that time I think twice if I have to visit something in hot summer months. It's better to choose an other direction for the vacation, I think.
