UK company creates Zombie-Proof shed

UK company creates Zombie-Proof shed

The end is nigh. Many of us are aware of this, it’s just in what shape it grabs us. This is a solution for those who suspect they may eat, sorry, meet their end at the hands of the undead in the form of Zombie Apocalypse, (a subject that has been playing on everyone’s minds). This savvy British company has seen the niche in the market, and with full research and patents pending, moved in there to corner the market….

Trip to yellow mountain – Huangshan Hot Springs

You’ll find the Huangshan Hot Springs a short ride down from the west entrance to the park. Buy a ticket on the bus for 8 yuan. Alternatively , walk down , it’s 1.5km and signposted.

Yangcheng Lake – Kunshan

Yangcheng Lake – Kunshan

Taking a little trip around this lake. Seems to be surrounded by married couples. I got ravaged by a lake monster. I made my way to the hotel, (luckily). It was from here I bolstered my constitution with bottles of Corona, whilst taking a short walk around the expansive gardens. Fairmont hotel, Yangcheng Lake There were many things to be seen here such as herbaceous gardens and fishing wu mao’s. The paths were so expansive, it was difficult to believe…

Marriott Blog worth $5 million

Marriott Blog worth $5 million

In additional clicks the company, one of my favourite world-wide hoteliers, tells us. A conversational blog by it’s founder and CEO Bill Marriott ranks amongst a list of 15 blogs (by sitepoint) where the corporate’s have got it right. Here’s a picture from my favourite Marriott, Marriott Jordan Valley. Cheap, and great breakfast, I’d recommend it to those visiting the ruins who can’t get bookings at the Movenpick (founded by relatives of the Swiss Explorer who discovered the ruins and…

No Rocks for Mikey

No Rocks for Mikey

KML 30.304 35.46339 No rocks for me. After some credit card overheating problems, I’ve decided to cut my loses and move on to the site of Petra, which is one of the main sites and named one of the 7 wonders of the world. Currently stationed at the Marriott, Petra after a 3-4 hour dolmus trip costing 5JD Jordanian Dinars. 1JD = 0.75GBP So that works out pretty cheap, about £4. Tomorrow I’ll be exploring one of the most exciting…

Jordan border crossing

Jordan border crossing

KML 29.533 34.9959 Am now in Aquaba Jordan after a slightly prolonged stay in Israel. Border Problems Got delayed which led to a late arrival at the Jordanian border, which is pretty close about 8KM from Egypt. I was delayed and the border closed @ 8pm. I had to wait till 6am the next morning on the benches outside the border crossing. The border crossing itself was like something from the iron curtain; all landmine strips, watchtowers and dogs. Made…

Pyramids – Egypt

Pyramids – Egypt

KML 29.987 31.133 Giza to be exact. Had a two hour drive from Alexandria along a refreshingly safe, (by Egyptian standards), toll road. People weren’t overtaking and undertaking at the same time while beeping their horns like the organised chaos of Alexandria. Of course, all that came to an end as soon as we reached Cairo and the incessant lane changing and horn sounding began, again. Bonza. Mena house Oberoi Found this hotel. It’s right outside the Pyramids and it…
