English for Flight Attendants | The Language of Air Travel in English West Country Tours ~ Cornwall, Devon & Stonehenge | British Tours Private car/minibus - 5 Days This tour takes you into a pace of life long gone elsewhere in England, quaint meandering lanes in sleepy villages, romantic associations with King Arthur and Guinevere, the vast wild spaces of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor - dramatic and full of contrast with jagged granite tors, prehistoric crosses and stone circles where wild ponies and red deer roam. Visit the ancient city of Winchester, once capital of England, Salisbury with its 13th century Cathedral, Stonehenge, Britain's most important prehistoric monument and the exquisite gardens at Stourhead. Stay three nights in Devon or Cornwall to relax and explore the region: Exeter, Buckland-in-the-Moor, Castle Drogo, a granite castle overlooking the wooded gorge of the River Teign, St Mawes and Pendennis, across the estuary - both built by Henry VIII to fortify the coast line in reaction to the Pope's crusade against him.

Virgin: the world's best passenger complaint letter? Look at this Richard. Just look at it: [see image 1, above]. I imagine the same questions are racing through your brilliant mind as were racing through mine on that fateful day. What is this? Why have I been given it? You don’t get to a position like yours Richard with anything less than a generous sprinkling of observational power so I KNOW you will have spotted the tomato next to the two yellow shafts of sponge on the left. I know it looks like a baaji but it’s in custard Richard, custard. Anyway, this is all irrelevant at the moment. I’ll try and explain how this felt. Only you open the present and it’s not in there. Now I know what you’re thinking. Once it was regurgitated it was clearly then blended and mixed with a bit of mustard. By now I was actually starting to feel a little hypoglycaemic. It appears to be in an evidence bag from the scene of a crime. I was exhausted. Once cleared, I decided to relax with a bit of your world-famous onboard entertainment. Is that Ray Liotta?

Cruise Ship Vocabulary When most people talk about travel, there are no tricky words or unique phrases, but cruise ship vocabulary can be a foreign language to uninitiated travelers. Whether you're trying to find your way around the ship, planning what to do, or just learning about different aspects of cruise travel, it's best to know the appropriate lingo and avoid sounding like a land lubber.

92-fr The Atlantic and Indian oceans mix and mingle off South Africa’s coast, producing a bounty of fascinating flora and fauna both on land and in the water. Writer Ingrid Sinclair takes us on a tour. Text: Ingrid Sinclair Country: South Africa outh Africa has a natural landscape that is as diverse as its people. On land, it is considered one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. But look a bit further and you’ll find that South Africa also has one of the world’s most interesting coastlines. Two ocean currents — one warm and one cold — sweep past the subcontinent, changing the appearance and behaviour of the plants and animals that live in these waters. One nation, two oceans The two currents that meet at the southern tip of Africa are the cold Benguela current of the west, flowing through the Atlantic Ocean, and the warm Agulhas current of the east, which flows through the Indian Ocean. Finding the middle ground This so-called dividing line is a major tourist attraction.
