EXCLUSIVE ECO: THE ISLANDS WITH THEIR OWN SPECIES - Life first appeared on Earth over four and a half billion years ago. Starting out extremely basic, lacking a lot of the traits people would associate with animals, it’s taken a very long time for life to evolve into what is around today. During that time, certain pockets of the world have been isolated from everything else. This has lead to a range of unique and interesting creatures, but they can only be found in certain places. To help you to find some of these animals, this post will be exploring some of the world’s most diverse islands.


Fraser Island, Australia

The first option on this list isn’t actually as the result of millions of years of isolated evolution, instead of being thanks to domesticated animals being allowed to roam free a long time ago. Fraser Island is a sand island on the East coast of Australia. Home to the World’s largest concentration of dingos, this is a great place for any dog lover, especially if you also like the heat. While they may not be unique to Fraser Island, there are few chances to see such a large population of wild dogs anywhere else.

Komodo Island, Indonesia

Nature doesn’t always work in the ways that people expect it to, and you can find a lot of evidence for this on Komodo Island, in Indonesia. This stretch of land is home to a large population of Komodo dragons; a reptile which looks as though it has been trapped in the past. While these creatures can be dangerous, very few people are hurt, nowadays. You won’t find bigger lizards anywhere else

Madagascar

If you’re aware of the movie offerings from companies like Dreamworks, you’ve probably got an idea of what can be found on an island like Madagascar. While you will find Lemurs throughout the world, there isn’t another place which is home to such a diverse range of species in this group. Along with beautiful rainforests and sandy beaches, you will find a host small primates which are all happy to welcome you to their home.


Galapagos


Finally, as the last island on this list, it would be wrong to ignore the Galapagos Islands during this sort of adventure. This isn’t one island, but, rather, a series of smaller pieces of land, connected by shallow waters which often disappear to make sandy bridges. Home to the largest tortoises found on Earth, along with a handful of other unique species, you will be able to see more on a trip to the Galapagos rather than you would visiting every other place on this list.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to go on an animal-based adventure. A lot of people find it hard to figure out where they’d like to go when they are exploring the natural world. Of course, though, you have loads of options, and this just gives you an excuse to travel as much as you can, even if it takes a long time to see everything.
FINDING NEW WAYS TO EXPLORE MIAMI

FINDING NEW WAYS TO EXPLORE MIAMI - When you think about visiting Miami, chances are you think about lounging on the golden beaches, sipping cocktails and soaking up the sunshine. But there’s far more to do than just this. There are plenty of hidden gems and places off the beaten track that are there to be discovered if you’re happy to veer away from the typical tourist traps. Plus, there are some interesting ways to explore- here are some ideas.

BY WATER
Miami is well known for its incredible turquoise waters, so if you’re visiting then it’s well worth taking the time to explore them. Look into boat rental Miami beach, and hire yourself a nice yacht to take in the sights from the waters. It could be a relaxing day out on the ocean, it could be a chance to throw a boat party or it could be a way to explore new places. Caladesi Park island, for example, is one of the few relatively unknown islands along the Gulf Coast, and it’s accessible only by boat or a ferry. It’s one of the few untouched islands along the Gulf Coast and is so worth the extra effort to go and see it.

BY AIR
If you want to do something really spectacular then why not soar like a bird and see Miami from overhead? You could book a helicopter or a hot air balloon tour and take in the amazing sights from above. Perfect if you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or special occasion while you’re away. Or just if you want to do something a little different and make it extra special. From ‘Miami Lights’ evening air tour, to ‘The Golden Beaches’ tour and sunset tours there are plenty of options depending on the kind of vibe you’re looking for. Lots of companies offer these services, but do be sure to book in advance as they’re very popular and likely to get booked up, especially around busier times.

BY LAND
If you travel around Miami by train, you’ll get to experience all the must-see attractions and landmarks on an incredible sightseeing city tour. Don’t forget to bring a camera along with you to capture the stunning plants, animals, and scenery! The trains are kitted out with kitchens to be able to serve full, hot meals as well as snacks and lighter bites, and the highest quality trains even have an upper-level observation car, with windows that curve across the ceiling. Which of course provide expansive views of passing scenery. Taking a road trip is another fun way to explore Miami. However, when visiting South Florida most people miss wonderful opportunities to experience scenic views, natural Florida beauty, and less traffic congestion as they take the main highways. Plan a road trip using some of the smaller and more scenic roads, then rent a car and make it happen!

7 UNDENIABLE REASONS YOU NEED A VACATION - We have so many priorities these days and a vacation rarely makes the top of the list. If you’re someone who has to talk themselves into taking time off, you aren’t alone. Just thinking about a vacation can sometimes feel like you’ve dropped a ball but be reassured that things will be fine without you. If you need a few reasons to book that well-deserved holiday, take a look below.

Decreased Stress Levels

There will always be times where stress gets on top of you. Whether you’re overworked or you’re dealing with a temporary crisis, stress can be a killer. Taking a break is a great way to reduce your stress levels. Not only is it healthier for your mind and body to reduce stress, but it’s also the perfect way to increase your productivity. If you feel like you’re not getting enough done, it could just be that you need to unwind, relax and recharge before coming back and going full speed ahead.

You’ll Live Longer

The harder you work without a break, the sooner you’ll die. Or that’s what studies have shown according to the State University of New York. A study there was conducted on 12,000 men and the results showed that men who took regular vacations extended their life span by over 20%. It can only be assumed that the same results would happen for women. So, if you want to live a long and healthy life, make sure to book those vacations every year- vacation rentals here aren’t expensive you know!


Inspires Creativity

Going on vacation has a knack of getting you back to your foundations. Haven’t got time to paint that canvas? What about the book you were going to write? Wherever you travel on vacation, you can bet you’ll find some inspiration. You may even return and start to do the very thing you’ve been dreaming about for years. Even though our work often has a dedicated space where we can ponder on projects, it’s often outside of the office where we get our best ideas. Embrace creativity and come home with a more positive outlook on work and life in general.

Vacations Make You Happy

Planning a vacation gives you something to look forward to and work towards throughout the year. It’s a positive goal that you’ve set for yourself before you’ve even taken the vacation. While you’re on vacation you get to indulge all of your senses. You’ll get to go on the adventures you’ve planned, eat and drink the things you love and spend time with the people who make you happiest. It’s the best way to refresh yourself and rejuvenate your body and mind. It puts you in the best mind frame for tackling new goals.

Changing Perspectives

Sometimes, all you need is a new perspective. If there’s something you’ve been struggling with for a while, taking a vacation could help you by changing the way you think and feel about it. A vacation is a time for quiet contemplation and reflection. It’s one of the best ways to solve problems without having to do any real work. As you relax, you begin to see the world from a different angle, and it can often feel like taking the goggles off and seeing things clearly for the first time.


Family Time

When you have to work to keep a roof over your family’s head, it can feel like you never get to spend quality time with your family. Children grow up quickly and it’s the quality time that they’ll remember into adulthood. Taking the time to go on vacation and create memories is important. It’s a great way to get to know each other well and learn new things about each other. You may teach a toddler a new skill in the water or tackle a problem with your teenager. Whatever fun is had during your vacation, you can be sure it will mean the world to your children.

Romance
Whether you’re single or a couple, a vacation is a perfect time for romance. Couples may find they don’t have quality time together when they’re at home and a vacation is an ideal way to rekindle their relationship. Singletons could just find a holiday romance that will send them home with a smile on their face and new hope. Vacation settings are often some of the most romantic there are.

So, if you've got to convince yourself to book a vacation, think about your health and well-being first.

5 REASONS TO VISIT BALI IN 2019Although there are many luxurious destinations in the world, there is one that has captured my heart time and time again: Bali. Here are five reasons to visit Bali in 2019, and they might show you why it’s becoming a favorite with travelers all around the globe.

The Luxurious Hotels

When thinking of Bali, it can be easy to get lost imagining the landscape. However, there are so many incredible hotels on offer, such as the Hotel Indigo Seminyak. It’s filled with intricate ornaments and is just a short distance from the local beach. Many of the hotels have spa facilities that can help you achieve the relaxing vacation you need, with most also being incredible value for money.

5 REASONS TO VISIT BALI IN 2019

Their Fantastic Beaches

The beauty that can be found on Bali’s beaches is almost out of this world. However, it’s not all white sand and crystal clear water; there are also several coves filled with black sands that can mesmerize even the best of us. Every beach is different from the next and many offer up incredible surfing locations that provide some of the best waves in the world.

The Many Temples

As if the natural landscape wasn’t enough already, Bali is also filled with temples of all shapes and sizes that have grown to become some of the most famous landmarks in the country. Although many of the temples were built hundreds of years ago, many locals still offer up flowers every day, meaning there’s always plenty of life in the area. A trip to a temple or two is sure to make some memories you will never forget.

5 REASONS TO VISIT BALI IN 2019

It’s Beginning To Get Popular

One reason to visit Bali in 2019 is to ensure you get to enjoy the land for all it’s worth before the visitors take over. Did you know that the number of Australian visitors to the country has increased by 546% since 2006? Visiting this year means you could beat the rush before this incredible land is filled with other travelers, all hoping to take in a slice of the magic with their own eyes.

The Food on Offer

Bali has become hugely famous for the local cuisine. As well as being home to several of the best restaurants in the world, the food on offer in Bali is thought to be some of the most complexes on the planet. It’s their variety of meat and fish, teamed with the selection of fresh vegetables and spices, that has seen people coming back time and time again. Once you’ve had a taste, it’s hard to find anything that beats one of these meals.

These are just five of my reasons to visit Bali in 2019. What do you think? Let me know about your memories from this wonderful land in the comments down below.

KATAMAMA POTATO HEAD HOTEL SEMINYAK BALI DELUXSHIONIST REVIEW

KATAMAMA | A DESIGN HOTEL IN SEMINYAK FOR COOL KIDS - Are you design savvy? love to party? and have a soft spot for everything artisanal? That's my first impression when I stepped my feet here at Katamama Seminyak. The design hotel that steals the attention because of its design, location, and concept. The first hotel project from Potato Head Group (yes, you know Potato Head Beach club already). So now, you can imagine the vibes here?

KATAMAMA | BOUTIQUE HOTEL SEMINYAK
Jl. Petitenget No.51B, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361
(0361) 3029999


The hotel doesn't really have a reception area, at the peak seasons it could be tricky especially if you come early, but if your room is ready, the check-in process will be done in your room, so does with check out, with a welcome drink will be also made & served in your room, you have your own bar space if you want to do experiment with your bartender ability. The design is Instagram and Pinterest worthy, all suites and my room has a view of the pool and neighborhood pool club so I can hear the music while sipping my cocktails from the balcony.

Breakfast is a la carte and for me was amazing (best classic eggs benedicts so far), you can drink from mocktails to Jamu (Indonesian traditional herbs juice), even the choice was limited but I quite enjoyed it. The only thing that disturbs me is the restaurant's staff feels like a hurry with their jobs to clean up your table (maybe this is their SOP because I feel the same way in Potato Head, and 2 of their restaurant Kaum & Ijen) but at the same time the reason may be for your own convenience.

The pool (also with gym) is relatively lively and quite, I loved it, the product they use is wonderful. The sleep robe, slipper, bath amenities speak their game to support local artist and sustainable. So no more question why the night rate at Katamama is above average, even on the same level as their beachfront contenders. The don't have private beach access, but you have a privilege as Katamama guest to spend your time at Potato Head Beach Club, with so many people, tourists, and amazing sunset as always.

Since there's no lobby and no online taxi allowed enter the area, if you plan to go to the next destination and hotel, it will be a good idea if you ask for a pick up from your next hotel, or even arrange it with Katamama (unless if you are okay, transport with a buggy car to the street and looking for a cab from there, ya I know it can be an unpleasant experience, but you need to respect the rules) - But overall stay at Katamama is a unique and cool experience, and only steps away to party
