Henry V in Byron Bay

A ridiculous interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most epic history plays. 4 actors take to the stage, and in the space of 90 minutes present a tale consisting of 19 characters, 5 nations, and 2 epic battles. This is a fast paced, engaging, and witty retelling of the battle at Agincourt. Real swords, fake blood, 3 talented actors and a bald guy irreverently portray (defame) amazing historical legends. This is your chance to attend wild, messy, and hilarious Shakespeare. Salt House Creative pro...

Is it safe to travel to Johannesburg

While much of the world has a blanket term for those born between about 1981 and 2000 — Millenials — in South Africa, they have an unyielding line in 1994 stratifying them further: those born-free, or after the fall of Apartheid. Born-frees frequently have disparate and more progressive views than their generationally older counterparts, trending more toward the left politically, and are known for more holistically embracing South Africa’s diversity. In the wake of the riots that plagued Joha...

Victoria and Albert Museum

Visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum is a must. The modern glass sculpture by Chihuly in the main lobby. We set out to find the famous ceramic staircase. At one time the whole existing museum at the time was going to be totally done this way but it proved to be too expensive. Moldings made of famous structures. Another interesting room. Looking up in the cafe. Afterwards we walked over to see the Albert Memorial. And passed the becoming rare phon...

Traveling with a romantic partner

Traveling can be great for couples. Not only will you share some amazing experiences with your other half, but you’ll also get to know each other extremely intimately. Sometimes too much so. The secret to finding a balance and making it work? Drawing boundaries. Of course, this is easier said than done: When suitcase space comes at a premium, it can be tempting to share rather than double up. And all that together time means you’ll end up experiencing things you’d perhaps prefer they kept to...

Biscayne National Park day trip

Lost in the music video glamor of South Beach is the natural beauty of South Florida. Not so much the parades of statuesque people you see parading around, because most of that’s not natural anyway. But more the nature you find beyond the sea of neon lights and glass towers, home to some stunningly unique ecosystems. You’re probably familiar with the Everglades, or have at least heard of them. But further south you’ll find a purely Floridian take on a national park, full of turquoise waters,...

Oil jumps 8% on stimulus hopes, spending cuts by U.S. producers - Reuters:  Oil prices jumped over 8% on Tuesday, bouncing from the biggest rout in nearly 30 years a day earlier, as the possibility of economic stimulus encouraged buying and U.S. producers slashed spending in a move that could cut output. On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump pledged “major” steps to gird the U.S. economy against the impact of the spreading coronavirus outbreak. Japan’s government said it planned to spend more ...

White giraffes killed by poachers

White giraffes might sound like something out of a “through the looking glass”-type fantasy movie, but these rare giraffes do exist. Unfortunately, that might not be for long. White giraffes were first spotted in Kenya and Tanzania in 2016, and now two of them have reportedly been killed by poachers in northeastern Kenya. Rangers discovered the carcasses of a female and her calf in Kenya’s Garissa County. It’s believed that only one white giraffe remains in the world. Mohammed Ahmednoor, the ...
