A new type of themed trip offers to “get lost” in the jungle.

jungle fever

People looking for adventure can now test their determination with a new type of theme trip. The theme in question?
Survival in hostile environments. Travellers are being sent to remote parts of the world and have to find their way out.

swimming with crocs6Designed by the custom-made travel agency Black Tomato, this itinerary, entitled “Get Lost,” is not for everyone.
If you are a fan of fresh air, addicted to adrenaline and with a strong personality, you are part of the target market! On the other hand, if you fear change and open spaces, if you are afflicted with a list of phobias as long as your arm and if you need all the modern comforts, the trip is probably not for you.

A secret destination kept secret until arrival

The programme is not designed for small children. The proposed places are hostile and offer little reference points: jungle, pole, desert, mountain, wild coast, etc. The idea is to enable people saturated by social networks, and under pressure in the face of the demands of daily life, to disconnect and discover their “inner steel.”

These very special travelers are only able to choose the type of environment they want to explore, but their exact destination is kept secret until they arrive. People who are ready for anything can even rely on the Black Tomato agency’s wheel of a chance decision.

These tourists have to tap into their resources.

jungle feverTo begin with, travelers must complete a questionnaire and are referred to a travel expert to determine how much they want to feel “lost” and what personal goals they want to achieve. If necessary, they follow specific training sessions. They arrive at their destination via a private route and are then given the necessary equipment to make a successful shipment.

Under the remote surveillance of a task force that remains hidden, and thanks to offline navigation technology, these extreme tourists are forced to tap into their resources, intelligence, and survival instincts to reach a series of crossing points. It is possible to register as a group or alone.


My recent visit to Northern Canada

rocky-mountaineer-train-next-to-river

map-of-canada-and-parksMy visit to the Northern part of Canada was by far one of the best entertainment trips I have ever been to across the world. Part of my hobbies and goals in life is to visit various destinations all over the world and to meet new people and learn new ways of life as well. To be honest being from British Columbia I had never ventured farther up than Prince George…

To be specific, North Canada was a good choice for national park tourism since the Country is well known for its diversity when it comes to animal life and ecosystems as well. Apart from their excellent weather, citizens, and food, their national parks are also one of the hidden treasures that one may discover when visiting the country. I was fascinated by all the different biodiversity in animals and I was even able to capture the footage on my high-tech handheld devices.

How I used my drone

To be specific, I recently purchased a drone, which I have been using to capture footage and just having fun when at home. I was not really in full compliance with the local regulations to be honest but managed to get a few good shots from my flight sessions.

This thing comes with a broad spectrum of design features that makes it ideal for capturing footage in various strategic locations. I decided to carry mine along on my trip to Canada, and I was simply amazed by the excellent functionality that this thing had to offer for my unique drone vidéo 4k footage capturing needs. The image quality was clear, and I was even able to upload the captured footage later on to my computer for access. The added benefit was that I did not need to change the batteries for new one, in fact, all I needed to do was to place the device in an electrical socket for additional power.

What I enjoyed in the tour

From the sandy beaches, glacial lakes, lush vegetation and the pristine weather, I was able to encounter these types of scenarios first hand, and I was even able to capture the footage on camera as well. As a student, its was not only important to me that I record the events on live camera, but it was also important that I document it in writing as well.

The Rocky Mountains, the untamed wilderness and the immense biodiversity that is available in the country, this was truly one of the most exciting moments in life. Not only did I get to see some of the highly rated ecosystems and environments in the world, but I also got the opportunity to learn a lot from y entire journey as a student when visiting North Canada National Parks.

On top of that, a significant portion of my time in the area was documented using my drone that comes with a high-powered camera along with excellent aerodynamic functionalities as well. For this reason, I have a full diary of my entire activities during my visit to the various national parks in Canada, and I enjoyed myself during the tour. Canada has excellent a unique ecosystem and environment as well, thereby making it one of the most famous travel destinations for students who want to learn more about the country.


My Passion for Outdoors and Camping Tents

Amazing sky at night when sleepign outdoors

There are all kinds of hobbies out there that people enjoy. One of the most popular is going camping and it is one of my favorite. Naturally as a Canadian, we have plenty of great outdoor spots we can enjoy anytime of the year. Whether being used for team-building, building a bond between family members, on vacation, or just being an excuse to reconnect with nature, many people like going camping. One of the most important items to take for the trip is the tent. However, not all tents are equal. There are many different types and kinds of various needs and environments. Keep reading to learn more about them so that you can find the best tent for you.

mountain biking breakSome tents are available for different numbers of people. Whether you are going camping alone, taking the a few friends or even taking a huge family, there is a tent out there that can fit your needs easily. You can find one that is just for one person. You can also find them for multiple people, such as 2-, 3-, and even up to 10-person tents. You can also get the bigger tents even if it’s just you or a few people if you need extra storage for your supplies.

Materials are also important, as the different types of tents are made with different materials that offer various types of protection. Polyester, canvas, and nylon are some of the most popular. Polyester works best in prolonged sunny areas, canvas is the heaviest and most durable, and nylon is the lightest for mild climates.

There are different shapes available, too. One of the most popular is the dome shape because they are easy to assemble and disassemble thanks to their often flexible poles. You can find these as small as 2-person size all the way up to 9-person size.

Square cabin tents are also a popular choice for outdoor trips. They are one of the best options for base and established campgrounds. This simple design is a very comfortable option due to its high ceilings, vertical walls, and rigid structure. Due to the extra space for everything from cots to chairs, they are perfect for large group or family trips.

bonfire in the outdoorsHoop tents are also a pretty attractive option for a couple of reasons. While putting them up requires pegs and knots, the spacious interior and headroom can be worth it. The arched shape outside also allows rain and snow to fall off.

If it is assembled correctly, the tunnel tent is one of the most reliable options for a camping trip. This one has poles that run its entire length. It also offers a lot of headroom and space inside. The main durability and construction of this tent are to be pitched if there are sudden high winds.

As you can see, there are many options when it comes to finding your ideal camping tent. You need to consider the type of material, the number of people going on the trip, along with how many supplies you plan on bringing, where you plan to camp, and the type of climate you can expect where you camp.

Road Trip to Naples and the surrounding area

This trip, I was dreaming for years. Pompei. Positano. Procida. Ravello. Capri. Amalfi. Napoli… The simple pronunciation of these syllables made me the effect of a map pastries in a tea room. If you followed me on Instagram these fifteen days, you know that my stay in Italy has been beyond my expectations. I filled scents of glycine, orange blossom, Citron, of olive oil, and pines. I put the blue in my retina for the next six months. And pastels washed by the foam of the waves and the Sun at its zenith.

An idyllic journey which I will deliver each step in the coming days. You then call the itinerary of your dreams by skipping some places either by lengthening the journey here or there. Radius hotel, affordable places with nights has mixed in five breathtaking stars. We have not stayed in all luxury hotels we visited. Sometimes, it there had just lunch or taking a drink. And I will try to offer to you at every stage, cheaper alternatives. This trip, we can do bag backpack and homestay. I feel too old for it and probably too snobbish I admit (again a sign of advanced age I imagine). So I preferred to save on flight booking a Paris-Naples via Easy Jet for several months in advance. It allowed us to grill the blue card for a few nights in hotels of crazy.
