Flamingo Beach Aruba



Views:138057|Rating:4.75|View Time:1:4Minutes|Likes:324|Dislikes:17
Renaissance Island is home to Aruba’s only private beaches. It’s also home to a gaggle of prancing flamingos.

The feathery friends on Flamingo Beach are so used to human interaction that they will walk right up to you and eat from your hands.

To get to this 40-acre private island, you’ll have to take a boat from the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. It’s free to hotel guests and leaves every 15 minutes. Those who aren’t staying at the hotel can pay $99 for a day pass that includes lunch and a drink.

You’ll have plenty of time to hang with the flamingos, but be sure to keep an eye out for other wildlife, such as lizards and huge iguanas, while you’re there.

It’s never too late to make new friends.

Manatus Hotel is located in the Tortuguero National Park on the northeast coast of Costa Rica. This area was once a thriving saw mill supplying a lot of the Caribbean with its finest wood, but now it is a safe haven for the endangered sea turtles, manatee and other exotic wildlife like the caiman crocodile, various species of monkeys, jaguars, sloths and thousands of different types of birds and butterflies . Manatus is Latin for Manatee and the Manatus Hotel is a luxurious hotel located within the park which offers guided boat tours to allow the visitor to get up close and personal with the pristine rainforest and wildlife. Other excursions such as deep see fishing can be arranged from the hotel as well.

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort



Views:3252903|Rating:4.89|View Time:16Minutes|Likes:176|Dislikes:4
The holidays begin here at the Disneyland Resort. This is the place where traditions are shared, memories are made and the spirit of the season shines even brighter. And this year, from November 9 through January 6, the holiday celebration returns with wonder, joy and, of course, plenty of Disney magic in both Parks.

Disney Festival of Holidays brings the sights, sounds and tastes of diverse seasonal celebrations to Disney California Adventure® Park. The centerpiece of this spectacular festival is Disney ¡Viva Navidad!, a lively street party featuring Mexican folklóric performers, Brazilian samba dancers and Disney Characters. And everyone will love sampling the wide variety of delicious fare available at the Festival Foods Marketplace. After you fill up, be sure to cruise over to Cars Land, where Mater’s Jingle Jamboree and Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl put the holiday cheer in overdrive!

Of course, what would the holidays be without the timeless seasonal favorites in Disneyland® Park? Behold the shimmering Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, marvel at the twinkling “it’s a small world” holiday, delight in “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade and see what happens when holidays collide in Haunted Mansion Holiday. But whatever you do, don’t miss the dazzling “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular, complete with its heartwarming “snowfall” finale.

So, whatever brings the holidays to life for you—the taste of a freshly made candy cane from the shop on Main Street, U.S.A., the warmth of a hot cocoa as you watch the parade go by or the laughter as you gather with friends and family for a photo in front of the towering tree on Buena Vista Street—get ready to experience it again. Because the holidays begin here…and the magic never ends.

Please like this video and subscribe to my channel, it is very much appreciated 🙂

For our family holiday, we decided to head on down to Cornwall. I have never stayed in a tent before so this was definitely something out of my comfort zone. Toby was very excited about the sand and the sea and he throughly enjoyed himself. All in all, it was of the best holidays ever! My partner Jay also proposed to me whilst we were there and I obviously said yes!! So we’re now engaged and I could not be happier.

There is also a post up on my blog about our little trip so if you could head on over there to give it a read, I would be very thankful!

Thank you for watching and I hoped you enjoyed this little video giving you an insight on what we got up to.

The Idea i had to travel for free | Jonathan KUBBEN-QUINONEZ | TEDxBrussels



Views:57322|Rating:4.98|View Time:12:50Minutes|Likes:772|Dislikes:3
In 2016 Jonathan quit his job, sold his car and bought a one way ticket to travel the world. Former consultant with a degree in communication and management, he created the concept “MOM, I’M FINE”.

One year later, his story became an internet sensation. The concept appeared on multiple media platforms worldwide, raised 300.000
followers and has more than 80 million views on Facebook. Today, Jonathan has explored 40 countries in 4 different continents and transformed his Instagram account into a
meaningful company.

During this talk, the instagramer will explain the story behind his concept and his vision about social media. Jonathan was on the eve of his 27th birthday. He finished his studies of communication and business management, and was working as a consultant in Brussels. In short, this was the life that his parents wanted him to have.

Most of his friends were in relationships, some had children. The kind of life he also wanted to have… but not right away. He still had a dream to fulfill: to make a world tour. He decided to gather all his friends to celebrate his birthday. He announced he quit his job and sold his car to finally travel. On March 20, he left Belgium.

Proud of his Mexican heritage, it is in Latin America that he landed a few hours later. Cuba, the first country he visits, does not allow him to communicate with his friends and family. The internet is not easily accessible, telecommunications are expensive, not to mention time differences between Cuba, Belgium and Mexico.

His mother, worried, knows the passion of her son for adventure and asked him to reassure her. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
