Niagara Falls || +Amazing things in the world ||

Self-proclaimed as the ‘Honeymoon Capital of the World’, Niagara Falls is split into two cities, one is in Ontario, Canada while the other is across the water in New York, USA. You can explore the majestic falls in several ways, including an observation tower, hiking trails and special viewing points to watch fireworks and light displays over the falls. The best spot is at Queen Victoria Park, located on the Canadian side of the river, which is also the ideal location from which to enjoy summer fireworks shows on Fridays and Sundays. Other activities include 15 miles of hiking trails, seasonal festivals, guided tours, clubs, bars, and even helicopter tours.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe  ||  +Amazing things in the world 

Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya (Tokaleya Tonga: the Smoke that Thunders), is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855 from what is now known as Livingstone Island, one of two land masses in the middle of the river, immediately upstream from the falls on the Zambian side. Livingstone named his discovery in honour of Queen Victoria, but the indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya—"the smoke that thunders"—continues in common usage as well. The nearby national park in Zambia, for example, is named Mosi-oa-Tunya, whereas the national park and town on the Zimbabwean shore are both named Victoria Falls. The World Heritage List officially recognizes both names.

In 2013 the government of Zimbabwe declared its intention to officially rename the falls "Mosi-oa-Tunya", citing continuity with other renamings such as Harare (from Salisbury), and Zimbabwe (from Rhodesia).

While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls. In height and width Victoria Falls is rivalled only by Argentina and Brazil's Iguazu Falls. See table for comparisons.

For a considerable distance upstream from the falls the Zambezi flows over a level sheet of basalt, in a shallow valley, bounded by low and distant sandstone hills. The river's course is dotted with numerous tree-covered islands, which increase in number as the river approaches the falls. There are no mountains, escarpments, or deep valleys; only a flat plateau extending hundreds of kilometres in all directions.

The falls are formed as the full width of the river plummets in a single vertical drop into a transverse chasm 1708 metres (5604 ft) wide, carved by its waters along a fracture zone in the basalt plateau. The depth of the chasm, called the First Gorge, varies from 80 metres (260 ft) at its western end to 108 metres (354 ft) in the centre. The only outlet to the First Gorge is a 110 metres (360 ft) wide gap about two-thirds of the way across the width of the falls from the western end, through which the whole volume of the river pours into the Victoria Falls gorges.

There are two islands on the crest of the falls that are large enough to divide the curtain of water even at full flood: Boaruka Island (or Cataract Island) near the western bank, and Livingstone Island near the middle—the point from which Livingstone first viewed the falls. At less than full flood, additional islets divide the curtain of water into separate parallel streams. The main streams are named, in order from Zimbabwe (west) to Zambia (east): Devil's Cataract (called Leaping Water by some), Main Falls, Rainbow Falls (the highest) and the Eastern Cataract.

The Zambezi river, upstream from the falls, experiences a rainy season from late November to early April, and a dry season the rest of the year. The river's annual flood season is February to May with a peak in April,[9] The spray from the falls typically rises to a height of over 400 metres (1,300 ft), and sometimes even twice as high, and is visible from up to 48 km (30 mi) away. At full moon, a "moonbow" can be seen in the spray instead of the usual daylight rainbow. During the flood season, however, it is impossible to see the foot of the falls and most of its face, and the walks along the cliff opposite it are in a constant shower and shrouded in mist. Close to the edge of the cliff, spray shoots upward like inverted rain, especially at Zambia's Knife-Edge Bridge.

As the dry season takes effect, the islets on the crest become wider and more numerous, and in September to January up to half of the rocky face of the falls may become dry and the bottom of the First Gorge can be seen along most of its length. At this time it becomes possible (though not necessarily safe) to walk across some stretches of the river at the crest. It is also possible to walk to the bottom of the First Gorge at the Zimbabwean side. The minimum flow, which occurs in November, is around a tenth of the April figure; this variation in flow is greater than that of other major falls, and causes Victoria Falls' annual average flow rate to be lower than might be expected based on the maximum flow.

The American Watch Company of Waltham, Mass. was one of the featured exhibitions at the 1885 International Inventions Exhibition as part of the world's fair held in South Kensington in the United Kingdom.

Men and women from the Waltham factory demonstrated their new "fine, automatic machines" at its exhibit entitled "Watchmaking by Machinery." These machines were invented, perfected and used at the Waltham Factory in the U.S. This line drawing was featured in The  Illustrated London News on Aug. 8, 1885.

Queen Victoria was a patron of the exhibit and Prince Albert was the president of the organizing committee. The display opened on May 4 of 1885 and lasted for six months.

Austria, Hungary, Italy, Japan and the United States - as well as the United Kingdom - all participated in the event, which drew nearly four million people.

The showcase included gardens, fountains and a series of concerts, photographers, musical instruments and much more.

I thank the advisor as he hands me a bag with currency in it.  I knew Her Majesty was generous but this was ridiculous.  It may have been for a job well done, but I have a better use for it.

I head back to my room and proceed to count just how much money there was in the bag.  I then counted the number of people in the kitchen who helped me create +Queen Victoria WR's birthday meals.  I believe that this windfall should be shared amongst ALL of the people who made it happen.

I place the currency in separate bags and head to the kitchen.  "OY!!  Gather round my friends.  Her Majesty has rewarded us for a job well done for her birthday.  I have a bag for everyone who helped that day.  Thank you my friends."

I walk around and hand the bags out to everyone.  There were one or two who grumbled, but they had had the day off and made us know in no uncertain terms that they would not be available.  I cannot in good conscience give a reward to someone who did nothing to contribute to the success.  Maybe this will serve as a lesson that if the Queen is to have something special then everyone must contribute.

After all, what is fair is fair, is it not??

Thank you, Your Majesty!!

Thought this might be helpful. A list of all the cruise ships that leave Istanbul for Kusadasi, which is the central point of Turkey for exploring history. Archaeologous (Tour specialist in Turkey) offers this list to help you choose your cruise ship if doing a Mediterranean cruise. Just when I think #Turkey is still relatively undiscovered...I'm reminded of the list of 42 cruise ships that go to #Kusadasi: Guess these vacationers have heard of the wondrous #Ephesus, #StJohnsBasilica and #HouseOfMotherMary.

Named for Queen Victoria's otherwise anonymous fourth daughter (who also lent her name to the province), Lake Louise is a place that requires multiple viewings. Aside from the standard picture-postcard shot (blue sky, even bluer lake), try visiting at six in the morning, at dusk in August, in the October rain or after a heavy winter storm.
You can rent a canoe from the Lake Louise Boathouse and go for a paddle around the lake. Don't fall overboard – the water is freezing.
