When you know swimming you show off a little. Everyone flaunts if they know a bit, so do I. Non-swimmers, here is one place where you can proudly float. Not joking dude, it’s true. DEAD SEA is one of the saltiest water body on the earth and the intense salt concentration makes the density of water 1.24 kg/liter, making easier for humans to float. It’s even said that if you try to drown someone, it’s hard, due the salt concentration. But then why lifeguards at this tourist destination? Though it’s easy to float facing the sky, but if you are non-swimmer and if you accidentally flip with you back facing sky and your mouth in water, it becomes extremely laborious to turn around on your own. Plus swallowing a lot of salt water can destroy your heart and kidney.
My marriage was approaching, my husband and I were planning for our honeymoon trip. The destinations changed from east to west across the globe. We had dreamt of every single destination thinking of spending the most beautiful moments, holding hand in hand and later switched to another destination after every one week. One of them was COLOSSEUM Italy. This is my favorite destination and we were stick to it for quite a long time. We checked the hotel price, air fair, list of points to visit, etc. I had researched so much that I could guide someone to Italy with all its history and significance. FLOP ! Our plans got cancelled due to some reasons and finally we switched to Singapore. I don’t regret my decision now but one day I am going to travel. Italy is going to call. ITALY WILL CALL ME !

Maasai, a group of ethnic nomadic people basically inhabitant of Northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya, holds a strong culture with very few changes seen since decades. Tourist come to witness Maasai lifestyle which is quite different from our lifestyle. So, what is different about them?
WHAT IS SO WEIRD ABOUT THE MAASAI ?
- Maasai have a patriarchal society, where important matters are taken by the elder men. Moreover marriages are decided by the elders without the consult of the girl or her mother. Strange isn’t it?
- The girls(11-13) are usually married to elder men (above 40) in exchange of cattle and cash. Strange isn’t it?
- During festivals, or when someone is sick, they drink raw blood of cow because it is believed that it gives them strength. Also a recent study shows no sign of heart disease or cholesterol was found in Maasai tribe unlike the Americans. Strange isn’t it?
- Few people burn the dead body, few cremate, but The Maasai, they simply leave the dead body for the scavengers. Strange isn’t it?
- Girls get widow at a very early age due to wide age difference between men and women. Later become the property of her husband’s brother. Also they are not allowed to marry again. Strange isn’t it?
The Maasai live their livelihood by raising cattle and goats, wearing traditional cloths and living in a small hut called the Manyattas. They believe in God named Enkai or Engai, having a duel nature, benevolent and vengeful. Maasai’s usually speak Maa, English or Swahili and mainly wear beads as ornaments. The necklace in red green and blue, is a flat disc type shaped, made of rows of beads striped in cowhide. Tourist who visit East Africa do not miss to visit this tribe. Would you too like to have a cup of raw blood in East Africa?
THE POWER OF JINN
Wadi-Al-Jinn, is located 30km from Medina, the second largest city in Saudi Arabia. Getting to Wadi-Al-Jin is a marvelous place with rugged mountains and date palm plantation on both the sides of road throughout the journey. Reached?
Upon reaching do not stop you car to relax. The car will start moving automatically even if the car is in neutral. And believe me your car will run up to 120km/hr. Yes 120km/hr! And did I forget to tell you that it is a UPHILL ? Even the water puddle flows the uphill. How can something flow up? Do you know that there are no doors or windows in the houses. This isolated place is little spooky. You can hear spooky noises at night and tourist prefer not to stay after sunset.
So whats so spooky about it? Who died there? Why Wadi-Al-JIN ? Jinn ! The Real Jinn? Yeah some people believe that the Jinn does all these things, some people say the ghost does all these things, some say there is a magnetic effect. So whats the catch about this place? What do you think what could it be?
Surprise Surprise! there are no ghost or Jinn or Magnetic effect. The Uphill is actually a optical illusion. Just like the deer sees water on land, but when it goes near there is no water, similarly the Uphill is actually a Downhill. The topography of Mountains, plantation will trick your mind and eyes and make you feel like the road is uphill. Wadi-Al-Jin is actually a downhill. So who wants to ride downhill 120km/hr at Wadi-Al-Jin ?
