Visit to Iceland !

Iceland is at the juncture of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. The main island is entirely south of the Arctic Circle, which passes through the small Icelandic island of Grímsey off the main island’s northern coast. The country lies between latitudes 63 and 68°N, and longitudes 25 and 13°W.

Iceland is closer to continental Europe than to mainland North America; thus, the island is generally included in Europe for historical, political, cultural, and practical reasons. Geologically, the island includes parts of both continental plates. The closest body of land is Greenland (290 km, 180 mi). The closest bodies of land in Europe are the Faroe Islands (420 km, 260 mi); Jan Mayen Island (570 km, 350 mi); Shetland and the Outer Hebrides, both about 740 km (460 mi); and the Scottish mainland and Orkney, both about 750 km (470 mi). The mainland of Norway is about 970 km (600 mi) away.

Iceland is a place which have breathtaking landscapes , many places to explore.  

Reykjavik is the  capital of Iceland . The city of Sigur Rós, breathtaking scenery, and an innovative tech and culture scene. It is also home to geothermal pools, long midsummer days, and little pollution.

It’s the hip place at the moment, for tourists and expats alike, and every day more and more people are arriving to make Iceland their second home.

But wait—before you go ahead and pack your bags, remember that life here is not easy. People here works very hard to earn money. Prices are high, many jobs pay poorly, fresh produce is a distant memory and, for citizens outside the EU, immigration laws are strict.

Reykjavik is so small you can practically walk everywhere downtown. Of course, if you live in the suburbs—Garðabær or Kópavogur, for instance, pick up a bus pass or a bike.

In the winter, bikes and bus traffic can slow down a lot, so do take that into account. If you want to travel anywhere else in Iceland, you have to have a car or a lot of patience to deal with the near-non-existent intercity buses.

There are many places like Gullfos , Gysir and many more 

1. Gullfos :- Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the canyon of the Hvítá river in southwest Iceland. Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The view from the top is epic…

2. Gysir :- Geysir, sometimes known as The Great Geysir, is a geyser in southwestern Iceland. It was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans. The English word geyser derives from Geysir. It’s a place with hot steam here you can swim and enjoy the cold temperature

Places to visit in borivali :-

Gorai

If you are a lover of waves and silent beaches, then you must definitely visit the Gorai beach. Life in the city can get really hectic and monotonous, because of the constant traveling, lights, and too many people surrounding you. There is always a need for a break, so that one can relax and ease up and visiting this beach in such a situation is just an apt and affordable choice that anyone can make.

I usually get there through the ferry that is available in Borivali. Commuting isn’t really an issue. Sometime I hang out at the beach with my friends when we travel by car, and it’s beautiful especially in the nights. You can just park your car anywhere, sit on the bonnet, play some soulful music, and enjoy the breeze kissing your face and hair. This is one divine feeling that money can never buy you even in the best of spas.  The warm food and sea breeze was a perfect combination that just soothed mind and tummy at the same time.

The beach is huge, with lots of trees and has clean sand. The water is clean and you can walk at the shore. It feels wonderful. You can also plan an entire day picnic with your family, instead of visiting a mall for a change. The kids can make sand castles, while you can jump around in the sand and water, and the oldies can just lie down on a mattress. So, if you’re in a mood of some great family get together, do think about visiting the beach and spending some quality time with nature.

How to reach ?

Gorai beach is ABOUT 4 KM FAR FROM BORIVALI STATION. So you can take Auto from the borivali station . After reaching the gorai khadi you can take ferry which will almost 20 Rupees.

Sanjay Gandhi national park :-

sanjay-gandhi-national-park

SANJAY GANDHI NATIONAL PARK is one of the most popular and biggest national park in the mumbai city which is located at borivali west. I have visited many times to this park during my school days and I had a lots of fun. This is awesome park in mumbai and it is very safety also to visit here so we can go with our family also. Hotels and accommodation are not more available as this is animal park but we will really enjoy this place to visit. Security is also quite well here and there is lots of places inside the park to see the nature scenery. The centre of attraction in Borivali is the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Wilderness beyond words, it is spread over 103 Sq. Km., and is cocooned between Mumbai and Thane. It forms about 20% of Mumbai’s geographical area. It is home to about 250-260 species of birds, 1300 varieties of plants, 150 species of butterflies etc. Guided tours and excursions are available on prior booking.

Lion and Tiger Safari :-

Main attractions of the park are a lion safari and a tiger safari for encouraging eco-tourism. The lion safari is a 20-minute ride through a 12 ha (29.65 acres) fenced forest area in one of the park’s green buses. The park is said to have a total of about 25 lions and lionesses. There are hardly 2 lions which visitors can safely see up close from inside the caged buses. The remaining 23 have been relocated or placed in fenced areas far away from the roads used by the green buses. During visiting hours, some of the resident lions are let out into the enclosure, and can be viewed from the safety of the bus. There are 4 tigers that are kept semi-confined in a 20 ha (49.42 acres) fenced area that is toured by the buses. A 5 m (16.40 ft) high and 2,200 m (7,217.85 ft) long protective fencing surrounds the area. This is done so that all visitors can safely view lions and tigers in their natural habitat. Here the visitors are caged in the bus so the big cats can roam like in the wild. Two other tigers roam in a much larger area.

I will be yours forever my best friend

In this world there are lots of people around us. there are many special persons in our life like our family and some friends. But there is a best friend which means us like our world like our family member.

Lets talk about it in more detailed form. so today i would like to share with all the special guys which have a best friend and which means them alot. I have many friends.

From childhood till now i have many friends which came and are now gone from my life as they got a better person then me.(this is my thinking) so i have last year just started my college life and its the part where you get many ups and downs in your life.So i have many friends in college. But there is only 1 friend which is my bestie. I love her till infinity. At the starting of our friendship was very well we were a just a simple and good friend but later we became best friends(a great applause…yippee) .Wait dont be excited there are many ups and downs in friendship. A small change in them can break your heart. So i would like to share the ups and downs in my friendship. I have a best friend she is very good in nature, in studies . She is really very caring. a sad thing she dont have mother which makes me cry even today. As she dont have mother i have promised myself to keep her happy everytime. not to hurt her a little also.She is a god gifted friend of mine.i always help her by helping her in studies and in other works and she does the same for me(really caring).so all was very much well between us.But little incidents in our freindship which made our friendship to reach a worst path. People were jealous of our friendship and bonding. We just used to keep our photos as a collage as whatsapp dp and our friends started stalking rubbish about it. Not this much they started talking about us(back bitching) that was the sadest moment. This all just happened to us. Later 1 girl came in my best friends life. She ruined our whole friendship. She know that me and my friend are best friends but still she dont leave my best friend when i really need her.Sometimes 1 person can change our whole life(sometimes in good ways and sometimes in bad ways) and this is the bad ways. this is very disappointing. still that girl comes between us and it is the sadest part. but i would like to tell my friend that ‘dear best friend, i will always stay for you’ you dont worry i will never leave you in any condition you be my best friend and no one can replace that thing. i dont want or i dont expect from you anything but i just want to say that my best friend i love you so much never forget me and give me the same importance i give to you that will make my day…. thank you for coming in my life and i am very happy………

THE IMAGINED AND THE REAL

India today is one of the most exciting tourist destinations in the world. The varied and vast landscape of the country forms a beautiful background to the cultural mosaic. Snow clad majesty of the Himalayas – considered one of the most interesting mountain ranges in the world . The sheer diversity OF ITS FLORA AND FAUNA. Fragnant valleys of Kashmir , famed for their saffron , sapphires and apples; to the mystic Buddhism of the foggy mountains in Sikkim ; from the cold deserts of Leh and Ladakh to the unparalleled Journey . The south makes an equally strong claim. A boat ride over the back waters of kerala to the beach where an ocean and a sea finally meet.
