Yapta: Track flight prices and check for airline refunds Article : Au Camper Van Week-End, rencontre avec les adeptes de la «vanlife» HiP Paris Blog l'exploration sous-marine - LAROUSSE La mer recouvre un peu plus de 70 % de la surface du globe, soit environ 360 millions de kilomètres carrés (140 millions de milles carrés). Depuis l'Antiquité jusqu'à nos jours, elle est un trait d'union entre les peuples et les continents. Longtemps l'homme s'est attaché à ne parcourir que la surface des océans, sans pour autant se risquer à franchir le « miroir » et pénétrer dans ce que Jacques-Yves Cousteau appelle « le monde du silence ». Un univers différent Le monde sous-marin, trois fois plus grand que les terres émergées, est démesuré, titanesque, à l'image de ses canyons, de ses plaines abyssales ou bien encore de la fosse des Mariannes, située dans le Pacifique Sud et dont la profondeur atteint quelque 11 000 m. Ce qui n'était que curiosité est aujourd'hui d'un intérêt économique et stratégique majeur. Mais l'exploration sous-marine, c'est aussi la plongée subaquatique.

[:en]Follow the Food Festival: A Voyage into Small Town Portugal[:] [:en] As the mayor of the tiny Portuguese village told me in broken Spanish, (our only common language)-“If it doesn’t melt in your mouth, it’s not ham…” Those of you guys who know me by now, know I’m an absolute sucker for food. And locals. And local food. SO, when I found out about the ham festival that was going down in Barrancos, Portugal, “to go or not to go” was not the question. So, where in the world is Barrancos? Barrancos is a teeeeeny tiny 2,000 person village in the South of Portugal, right next to the Spanish border. except everyone spoke Portuguese. Now, I’ve never been a big hamconnoisseur. And ham I ate. Now what exactly is this mysterious ham, you might ask? I introduce you to my dear friend, the ham. We got really personal… Like, really personal. Now, behind every leg of ham, there is a man cutting it. His name is Alberto. But his heart… His heart was with the cheese. And that’s not all. After 2 hours of ham lovin’, sausage stuffin’, cheese munchin’ fun, came the dessert.

Billed as the world's second-oldest athletic tournament—after the Olympic Games—it's also the largest showcase for the Turkish national sport of oil wrestling. This time-honored event has one noticeably different ingredient from wrestling bouts elsewhere: olive oil, and lots of it. The one thousand or so contestants at Kirkpinar, as the competition is called, use an estimated thousand kilograms (about one ton) of the all-natural unguent throughout the one-day tourney. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, being slathered in oil prevents an opponent from easily gaining leverage. Kirpinar draws contestants of all sizes and ages and takes place in an open stadium that fits more than 25,000 spectators. The event is spiced with pre-combat rituals. Kirkpinar is said to have been started by 14th-century Ottoman soldiers on the march.

Travel Hacking Resources It’s a common misconception that getting multiple credit cards simply for the signup bonuses is “gaming the system.” In fact, banks are happy to pay for acquiring customers. These banks purchase millions of miles in bulk from airlines and hotels, then distribute them as signup bonuses and ongoing incentives for their new customers. Best Cards The best current offers are always listed on our partner site, Cards for Travel. Disclaimer: it’s important to make sure you can pay off your balance every month. Frequent Flyer Challenge As mentioned, I’ve been earning mileage bonuses on credit cards for a long time—but a few years ago, I had an idea for an experiment. What would happen? Not exactly. I’ve repeated a version of the challenge every year, and hundreds of AONC readers have done it in their own way too.
