10 Best Places to Visit in Canada


Capri, Italy - The Best of

Capri is an island off the coast of Naples with Towering limestone cliffs
and famous Turquoise waters (with legendary blue grotto which was highlighted in the book Red Sails To Capri, by Ann Weil.

Hot resort since Roman times and in the 1950's became a top tourist destination.

AnaCapri was a favorite of French composer Claude Debussy. A quieter pace prevails where luxury hotels like the Capri Palace cater to weddings as well and spa seekers. The swimming pool has underwater glass viewing windows. The village has a pedestrian walkways which meanders between eye popping buildings and restaurants bursting with blooms like bougainvillea on steroids. There is of course pizza by the rectangle (no slices) and enormous lemons which where the pulp is used in a refreshing lemon and olive oil salad.

In the town of Capri, things get a lot busier. Fiats specially outfitted with open tops brings passengers up from Marina Grande where ferries arrive throughout the day from Sorrento and Naples.

But the biggest crowd bringer are the cruise ships which tender in thousands of passengers turning Capri into one long line like at Disneyland on the 4th of July. Troops of tourists follow paddle swinging guides through the narrow streets of Capri often causing traffic jams where the most robust tourists survive. Capri has some of the most exclusive jewelry, clothing and home assessory shops anywhere but an owner confided to me that during the time when the ships unload their passengers on the island they could close their doors and not have missed a sale. This is, for the most part, a tee shirt and gelato customer.

So how do you see Capri while avoiding the daily rush? Since the crowds usually arrive by 10:30 AM and depart by 4 PM the best strategy is to shop early or late take the funicular down when the crowds are going up the hill and go up when the crowds are coming down in the afternoon.Have lunch a little off the beaten trail.

Aurora, one of Capri's oldest restaurants. Delicious salad like one with fresh cherry tomatoes, argula and slices of Parmesan make for a great starter. The pizzas are prepared in a special oven and the super thing crusted pizza a l'aqua is made with mozzarella cheese and pepperocini spice. Its not on the menu but they'll make it for you if you ask ... and ask you should. Also try the homemade fresh sorbets.

In the evening a classic place to dine is the Quissiana Hotel and the Rendezvous Bar. Besides sushi ... they have wonderful, classic Italian dishes with a twist such as the fresh local crab, tagoltelli with summer truffles and lemon, or ravioli filled with ricotta and a spicy tomato sauce.

গ্যাংটক ও তার পাশাপাশি পরিবেষ্টিত অঞ্চলগুলি বেশ সুন্দর এবং পাহাড় ও উপত্যকার চমৎকার দৃশ্য প্রদান করে এবং এই জন্যই গ্যাংটক ও পাশাপাশি পরিবেষ্টিত অঞ্চল পর্যটকদের কাছে বেশ জনপ্রিয়।

Madeira (Portugal) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Madeira in Portugal.
Madeira is an island of flowers located amid the Atlantic Ocean, with steep cliffs, green valleys, majestic mountains and world famous wine. Belonging to Portugal, it is located nine hundred kilometres southwest of the European mainland and six hundred kilometres west of North Africa. Funchal is the capital and from the beginning a feudal lord resided in the Palacio De São Lourenço along with the military, and later the governor of the island. In 1493 King Manuel The First founded the cathedral which was the first to be situated beyond the continent of Europe and was designed according to Mudéjar style, the Arab construction method of the Christian Moors. The small fishing village of Camara De Lobos is situated west of Funchal on the south coast and was made famous by Sir Winston Churchill who painted its small harbour. São Vicente looks like something from a picture postcard and wine growers proudly display their traditional homes and well laid out vineyards. The town is particularly well known for its Grutas, Madeira’s only accessible cave system and which indicates its geological past. In the north east is the tourist centre of Santana with its straw-roofed houses, beautiful flowers and streets lined with patterned cobblestones. Amid a fertile terraced landscape is the picturesque centre of Faial and its modest parish church, the destination of a major annual pilgrimage. The village exudes tranquillity and there has been little impact of tourism as both the landscape and the local people have retained their original character. Madeira is like a jewel in the Atlantic, possessing its own rich variety of exceptional, natural landscapes. A wild beauty with many hidden treasures!

Over loaded train at berhampore court station|| murshidabad||west bengal

Group D exam day.........!!!!!!!!!!
This Video is to show curiosity and unbelievable crowds in Indian trains at Berhampore Court station . It does not reflect regular state of past or present times of Indian trains. This video has no intent of showing any bad or down for India.This is just to show curiosity of unbelievable situations and to show how huge crowd can be on Indian trains. I have learnt the lessons of my life in the passenger train at Berhampore Court station. Its a totally new world altogether and you have to understand the ground rules first, in order to enjoy the train journey. You have to be 'street smart' in real sense in order to be sane and travel by the local and passenger train.....!!!!!!

train systems in the world. Well....we have been going to Berhampore for group D exam. Going for a exam is a different affair altogether. You are pampered and never get to use the local and passenger trains at all. I was standing on the Berhampore Court station for 3 hours waiting for the passenger train !!! and then a bright idea dawned upon me that perhaps there is no such thing !!! All the newspaper vendors and boot-polish guys were wondering if I was conducting a survey to join them !!!

মালব রাজ্যের রাজা ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য। গগনচুম্বি তার প্রাসাদ। একবার সেখানে এক রহস্যময় সন্যাসি উপস্থিত হন। ভারতবর্ষের প্রতিটি তীর্থ তার নখদর্পণে। ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য ছিলেন পরম বিষ্ণুভক্ত। কথা প্রসঙ্গে সন্যাসি তাকে জানান, শ্রীবিষ্ণু বর্তমানে নীলমাধব রূপে শবর রাজ্যে অত্যন্ত গোপনে শবরদের দ্বারা পূজিত হচ্ছেন। সন্যাসির কথা শুনে ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য বিষ্ণু দর্শনের জন্য ব্যাকুল হয়ে ওঠেন। নীলমাধবের সন্ধানের জন্য তিনি রাজ পুরোহিতের ভাই বিদ্যাপতিকে শবর রাজ্যে পাঠালেন। শবর রাজ্যে এলেন বিদ্যাপতি। রাজ অতিথিকে শবর রাজ পরম আতিথ্যে বরন করলেন। রাজকন্যা ললিতাকে দিলেন অতিথি সেবার দায়িত্ব। কিছুদিনের মধ্যেই সরলমতি ললিতার মন জয় করে নিলেন চতুর বিদ্যাপতি। ধীরে ধীরে আরো ঘনিষ্ঠ হয় তাদের সম্পর্ক। এক মুহুর্তের জন্য বিদ্যাপতি চোখের আড়াল হলে কেঁদে বুক ভাসান ললিতা। এই সুযোগের অপেক্ষাতেই ছিলেন বিদ্যাপতি। তিনি এক প্রেমঘন মুহুর্তে ললিতার কাছে নীলমাধব দর্শনের আব্দার করলেন। উভয় সংকটে পড়লেন ললিতা। কারন, গভীর জঙ্গলে নীলমাধবের গুপ্ত মন্দির। তার সন্ধান শুধু শবররা জানেন এবং শবর ছাড়া অন্য সকলের জন্য সে স্থান নিসিদ্ধ। অনেক ভাবনা চিন্তার পর ললিতা জানালেন বিদ্যাপতি নীলমাধব দর্শনে যেতে পারেন, তবে সেখানে তাকে চোখ বেঁধে নিয়ে যাওয়া হবে। বিদ্যাপতি তাতেই রাজি হলেন। নির্দিষ্ট দিনে সকলের অলক্ষ্যে অত্যন্ত গোপনে বিদ্যাপতির চোখ বেঁধে নীলমাধব দর্শনে নিয়ে চললেন ললিতা। কিন্তু চতুর বিদ্যাপতি যাবার আগে বস্ত্রের মধ্যে লুকিয়ে কিছু শরিষা নিয়ে গেলেন। নীলমাধবের মন্দির পর্যন্ত সেই শরিষা তিনি ফেলতে ফেলতে গেলেন। মন্দিরের মধ্যে নিয়ে তার চোখ খুলে দেওয়া হলো। নীলমাধব দর্শনের পর একই ভাবে চোখ বেঁধে বিদ্যাপতিকে ফিরিয়ে আনা হলো। কিছু দিনের মধ্যেই রাজপ্রাসাদ থেকে নীলমাধবের মন্দির পর্যন্ত পথ জুড়ে বিদ্যাপতির ছড়ানো শরিষা থেকে শরিষা গাছ তৈরি হলো। খবর পেয়ে ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য সদলবলে শবর রাজ্যে উপস্থিত হলেন। শরিষা গাছের সারি অনুসরণ করে চললেন নীলমাধবের মন্দিরে। কিন্তু কাছে গিয়ে দেখলেন মন্দির শুন্য। নীলমাধব সেখান থেকে অন্তর্হিত হয়েছেন। নীলমাধবের দর্শন না পেয়ে বুকফাটা আর্তনাদে ভেঙে পড়লেন রাজা ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য। তিনি সেখানেই অনশনে প্রাণ ত্যাগ করার জন্য মনস্থির করলেন। তখন দেবর্ষি নারদ সেখানে উপস্থিত হয়ে জানালেন তার প্রাণ ত্যাগ করার কোনো প্রয়োজন নেই। এই স্থানেই শ্রীহরি ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্যের পূজা গ্রহণ করবেন। রাত্রে শ্রীবিষ্ণু তাকে স্বপ্নাদেশে জানালেন পুরীর বাঙ্কিমুহান নামক স্থানে একটি বৃক্ষ রূপে তিনি সমুদ্রে ভাসতে ভাসতে আসবেন।পরদিন নির্দিষ্ট স্থানে গিয়ে বৃক্ষ রূপী শ্রীবিষ্ণুকে পেলেন। শবররাজের সহায়তায় শ্রীবিষ্ণুকে সোনার রথে চাপিয়ে নিয়ে আসা হল। রাজা ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য সেই গাছ কেটে শ্রীহরির মূর্তি তৈরি করার জন্য কারিগর নিয়োগ করলেন। কিন্তু কোনো কারিগরই কোনো অস্ত্র দিয়ে গাছটি কাটতে পারলেন না। তখন দেব কারিগর বিশ্বকর্মা ছদ্মবেশে সেখানে উপস্থিত হয়ে মালবরাজকে জানালেন, তিনি মূর্তি তৈরি করতে পারবেন। কিন্তু একটা শর্ত আছে। তিনি ২১ দিন মন্দিরের দরজা বন্ধ করে কাজ করবেন। এইসময়ে কোনো ভাবে কেউই মন্দিরের দরজা খুলে ভেতরে প্রবেশ করতে পারবেন না। রাজা নিঃশর্তে রাজি হলেন। দরজা বন্ধ করে মূর্তি তৈরি শুরু করলেন দেব শিল্পী বিশ্বকর্মা। ১৪ দিন পরে হঠাৎ মূর্তি তৈরির ঠুকঠাক শব্দ থেমে গেল। রাণী ভাবলেন মূর্তি গড়ার কাজ হয়তো শেষ হয়েছে। কৌতূহল বশত তিনি দরজা খুলে ভিতরে প্রবেশ করলেন। শর্ত ভঙ্গ হওয়ায় অত্যন্ত ক্রুদ্ধ হয়ে কারিগর অদৃশ্য হয়ে গেলেন। খবর পেয়ে রাজা এসে দেখলেন মূর্তি অসম্পূর্ণ এবং কিম্ভুত আকৃতি বিশিষ্ট। সেই রাতে শ্রীবিষ্ণু আবার তাকে স্বপ্নাদেশে জানালেন, যেহেতু ইন্দ্রদুম্ন্য তার পরম ভক্ত তাই এই বিকট রূপেই তিনি তার পূজা নেবেন। সেই থেকেই এই অসম্পূর্ণ অবস্থাতেই জগন্নাথ দেব পূজিত হয়ে আসছেন।
