Travel Salina, Italy

Having lived in La Madela, a small town outside of Sardinia for two years of my life, my family has made quite a few friends in Italy. To this day, I have been pen pals with my friends that I knew from my days in Kindergarten and First Grade. Now that I am married, my wife and I have had the opportunity to go back to Italy, as my family generally does every few years to visit. The best part is that, due to the wealth of one of my old friends, rarely does the trip cost us all that much. When my wife and I went together to visit my friend Paoli, we were in Italy for about three weeks. This was about a year ago, just after I got out of the military, and before my wife got in. While on our trip, Paoli, thought it would be a great idea for my wife and I, as we had just gotten married, to take a private trip to Salina, on him. I had no idea, what Salina was at that time, but man, was I thankful to him for the trip.

Travel experiences: Kenya

The clouds had gathered above with an impending storm looming on the horizon, and we were just starting our journey. There were children playing on a rusty old sliding board that was sitting next to a small stream of sewage. One little boy building with stones, and another one rolling a tire. The dust from the lack of rain was blowing in the wind as if it was rushing towards the storm.

Top 10 All-Inclusive Beach Resorts

Nestled along a 1,000-foot stretch of palm-lined beach, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort offers travelers a great-value all-inclusive resort experience in the U.S. Virgin Islands’ beautiful . Complimentary use of water sports toys like sailboats, kayaks, windsurf boards, and snorkel equipment provide plenty of active ways to work on that tan, while a warm staff and restaurants doling out eclectic Caribbean and Continental cuisine – and mouth-watering culinary treats like lobster, fresh seafood, and filet mignon (all included at no additional cost) – encourage guests to linger back on resort grounds. The rooms, each boasting a waterfront balcony, are situated just steps from the beach and offer guests a bright and airy, if somewhat basic, place to rest their heads.

New Zealand Town Cherishes the Stars

This little New Zealand town of Tekepo is in the dark — and proud of it.
Where other places greet the night by lighting up their streets and tourist attractions, this one goes the other way: low-energy sodium lamps that are shielded from above, and household lights that must face down, not up.
The purpose: to bring out the stars more vividly.
The town of 830 people on South Island is on a mission to protect the sight of the vast starry blanket spanning its heavens, even as the night sky disappears behind light and haze in many parts of the globe.
The ultimate prize would be UNESCO's approval for a world-first "starlight reserve," and already the "astro tourists" are coming.
A group of 25 are huddled at midnight on a bare New Zealand hilltop, knees, hands and faces numbed by an icy wind as they gaze up at the Milky Way.
"It's awesome, I mean it's like beyond words," says Simon Venvoort, 46, a management consultant from Amsterdam. "You see so much you aren't aware of."
"You know that two generations now are growing up not being aware that all this is out there because ... half of the world is light-polluted."
The "starlight reserve" idea germinated in UNESCO in 2005. Tekapo, in the McKenzie Basin of South Island, was already on its own track, seeking what locals were calling their "park in the sky." So Tekapo was suggested as a pilot site because of its haze-free sky and lighting controls already in place.
A UNESCO working party agreed last month to study what Graeme Murray, chairman of the Mackenzie Tourism and Development Board, calls "a heritage park in the sky."
"We helped make UNESCO world heritage look upward as well as around them in protecting the world's heritage," he says.
The U.N. body has extended world heritage status to 878 historic, cultural, ecological and natural sites around the planet, but none includes the sky.
The idea faces significant challenges — UNESCO's conventions do not mention the space above and around heritage sites, and there's still the question of how to define a piece of open sky for conservation purposes.
The darkening of Tekapo began in 1965 to serve the Mount John Observatory that opened on nearby Mount John. Town officials later turned necessity into a virtue by expanding controls on public and private lighting in a 19-mile ring around the town and the observatory to keep the sky dark.
Three new housing developments have spent extra money for "sky-friendly" lighting. A skating rink even installed special lighting to prevent ultra violet light from reflecting off its ice surface into the night sky.
Not that people here are bumping into each other or driving blind during the night hours. And anyway, there's plenty of starlight, as residents note.
