Top five places in the world to fall in love

 
Falling in love can be an exciting experience and wherever you find yourself when it happens, a romantic setting can definitely help point cupid’s arrow in the right direction.

When couples look back on their past history, it is always the places and experiences they shared together that shaped their relationships.  Planning a holiday that you are hoping will be romantic can be enormous pressure.  We at Escapist Traveller are here to help.  Whether it is seclusion or adventure you are after, here are Escapist Traveller’s top five places to throw caution to the wind and fall in love.

Kefalonia

Kefalonia was featured in the Hollywood take of Louis de Bernières’ romantic novel, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. It was here that the young Italian officer, Captain Corelli, played by Nicholas Cage, fell in love with the beautiful Greek islander, Pelagia, played by Penelope Cruz, during the German and Italian occupation of Kefalonia in World War Two.

This breathtaking Greek Island of sparkling turquoise sea’s and picturesque villages has only around 32,000 inhabitants, so there are plenty of places for space and privacy to let love blossom.
The best beach on the Island is Myrtos Beach, spectacular, picturesque and enclosed by cliffs this beach has clear, blue water gently lapping against fine, white sand. It is the perfect suntrap and can get very hot but there is a beach bar, sun beds and umbrellas for hire. As Myrtos is in the north of Kefalonia it is set away from the more popular resorts, therefore it is more private and well worth a day trip.

Fiscardo is widely regarded as the most beautiful fishing village on the island. It was left untouched by the devastating Earthquake of 1953, which damaged many of the traditional and Venetian-style buildings of its neighbours. Beyond the rows of dainty fishing boats at Fiscardo Port, the early evening ambience is delightfully set by candle lit restaurants serving freshly caught seafood and local delicacies.

Stroll hand in hand around the many ancient monasteries and churches that pepper the island, or take a boat tour of the underground lakes and caves of Melissani and Drogarati to see incredible limestone formations. With its unique charm and magical vistas, Kefalonia is perfect for a romantic and relaxing escape.

World's Most Terrifying Tourist Attraction Shut Down [PHOTOS]

 

The world’s most terrifying tourist attraction has been shut down after frightening photos emerged of tourists balanced on a raft feeding meat - to crocodiles.

The young holidaymakers clambered aboard a make-shift cage kept afloat with plastic barrels just inches from the 10ft long killer reptiles.

They used canes to dangle lumps of beef over the jaws of the reptiles - which then leapt from the water to snatch their lunch.

Pictures taken by shocked motorcycle-taxi rider Jon Nok show hundreds of crocs circling the raft in a pond used for crocodile farming at the Elephant Kingdom in Chonburi, Thailand.

 

The images viral after he posted them on Twitter - sparking police and government officials to rush to the attraction.

    Jon, 40, said: ‘I’ve bee a taxi driver for more than 20 years and never seen anything like this before.
    ‘It looks so dangerous I just had to take a picture. The tourists were all Chinese and some of them were scared, others were enjoying it.
    ‘People have been shocked to see that this happens.’

Top 9 signs you'll never be rich

Contrary to popular belief, "Everyone has the same opportunity to acquire wealth," says self-made millionaire Steve Siebold. But is wealth in the cards for you?
To help you evaluate that, we've rounded up nine red flags to watch out for. While no one can predict the future, the following choices most likely won't accelerate your path to riches.

You put too much emphasis on saving — and not enough on earning


Saving is crucial to building wealth, but you don't want to focus so much on saving that you start neglecting earning, which is what rich people focus on.

"The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally they miss major opportunities," Siebold writes.

There's no need to abandon practical saving strategies. However, if you want to start thinking like the rich, "Stop worrying about running out of money and focus on how to make more," Siebold advises.

Some experts say that "it's not about how much money you make, it's about how much you keep," but this shouldn't be an excuse to disregard earning completely. To keep money, you have to earn it in the first place. A common thread among millionaires is that they develop multiple streams of income and have smart savings habits.

HOW You Can Use Google Calendar to Coordinate Meetings?

A MAJOR CHALLENGE with any #worksquad is making sure you’re all available for meetings at the same time—especially if you’re working in various time zones. Google Calendar makes it a little easier. This tip requires everyone on your team to apply the same settings to their calendars, but it’ll ensure your meetings don’t fall prey to schedule dysfunction.

This tip does involve each person on your team making their calendar public—at least to other members of the team. This may feel like an invasion of privacy, but there’s a way to do it without broadcasting your every move.



How to Create a Shared Calendar in Google Calendar


Go to calendar.google.com and find the “My calendars” menu in the left column.

Click the box with the downward-pointing arrow next to “My calendars.” Select “Create new calendar” from the drop-down menu.

After you fill in a name and description for your calendar, you have several sharing options. You can make the calendar public and accessible via Google searches by checking the “Make this calendar public” box. If you do, it’s probably a good idea to also check the box next to “Share only my free/busy information” to keep your schedule details private.

Better yet, you can share the calendar only with certain people. Enter each email addresses in the “Share with specific people” field, and click the “Add person” button to add more invitees. You can also adjust the privacy settings for invitees with the “Permission settings” drop-down menu for each email address you invite.

That will create a shared calendar that your entire team can view and add to, but individual team members will likely have their own calendars. They’ll need to take a few extra steps for the best collaboration features.



How to Share Your Google Calendar With Others

To make your own calendar visible to the rest of the team, find the “My calendars” menu.
Click the box with the downward-pointing arrow next to your personal calendar. Select “Calendar settings” from the drop-down menu.

How to Start an at Home YouTube Tutorials?

If you have specialized knowledge and the ability to share your expertise in a clear and concise way, then consider starting an at-home tutoring business. Traditionally, tutors help school age children master concepts from their daily curriculum. While the demand for this service continues, additional areas of focus include college entrance exam preparation, assistance with college courses and even preparation to start kindergarten. The low startup costs make this business an attractive way to earn part-time income. 

However, so many parents want to give their kids a competitive edge that there is enough work for a viable full-time business.

Step 1
Identify your areas of expertise. Formal certification is not required to set up shop. However, clients will look for demonstrated experience or training. Teacher certification and specialized courses will provide credibility and make marketing a tutoring business easier.
Step 2
Choose a legal structure and name the business. A sole proprietorship or partnership if a second owner is involved is usually sufficient. If a name other than the owner's name will be used, then register a fictitious name with the state secretary.
Step 3
Obtain licenses and permits. Almost any business requires registration with local authorities, even if the business is operated from home. Check with the city and county governments where the business is located for requirements.
Step 4
Establish policies, procedures and pricing. Some decisions include how to handle no-shows, make up lessons and "emergency" questions. A written agreement with the parent regarding services will help alleviate misunderstandings. Check with other tutors to see if your pricing is competitive.
Step 5
Obtain learning tools as needed for clients. The library and internet are good sources for free materials. Invest in a good set of reference books for the main subject areas.
Step 6
Set up an office with a phone and computer access. Administrative tasks, such as marketing and billing, are easily conducted from home. Meetings with clients can be conducted at the student's home or in your own home. A quiet place free from interruptions is needed. Check deed restrictions and with local authorities to ensure that ongoing meetings in your own home are allowed. Note that libraries often prohibit the use of their facilities by paid tutors.
Step 7
Advertise the tutoring business in mediums and places your target market frequents. Place fliers on school bulletin boards, provide brochures to teachers and students and participate in parenting networks. Create a resume with references to provide to potential clients. Maintain an email list and consider sending a periodic newsletter with study tips and information related to areas of focus.
Step 8
Provide home-based tutoring services through on-line companies, such as Tutor.com. This avenue will supplement the income made through face-to-face clients and allow tutoring skills to be honed in the area of expertise. A computer with high-speed Internet access is needed. Generally, the tutor is considered an independent contractor.
