3 Dream Islands You Don’t Want To Miss

Dazzling panoramas, palm tree fringed beaches, romantic sunsets and exhilarating encounters in the wild, we’ve picked out our top three islands that you simply do not want to miss.

Santorini – Honeymooner’s Heaven

It’s the choice of screensaver for millions of Windows users. Ivory white and cobalt blue buildings nestling into a gently cascading escarpment culminating in black and red sands; Santorini is passion, romance – it’s the supermodel of the Greek islands.
And when the sun sets the reflection on the buildings and the glow of the orange and red in the cliffs can be truly breath-taking.

Indulge in the archaeological delights of the impressively preserved Ancient Akrotiri or climb the ancient stairs that lead to the historic city of Manolas in Thirassia.

Or, simply relax and drink in the amazing views and incredible cuisine in this Grecian idyll.

Bora Bora – Overflowing with beauty

The small island of Bora Bora (just 6 miles long and more than 2 miles wide) is bursting at the seams with sights to overwhelm the senses. Dubbed the ‘pearl of the Pacific’ by 18th Century British explorer James Cook, this French Polynesian paradise offers impossibly blue lagoons, white gold sands and an underwater world filled with captivating marine life.

If you’ve got the energy you can even hike up Mount Otemanu and visit Vaitape, Bora Bora’s quaint little town.

The Galapagos Islands – Untamed, exuberant nature

The isolated isles of the Galápagos lure those looking for exhilarating encounters in the wild.
This archipelago of 19 islands, situated around 100km off the coast of Ecuador’s is probably the most biodiverse location on the planet.

After all, where else can you observe giant tortoises grazing on tall blades of grass, short-feathered penguins waddling along the equator or blue-footed boobies conducting their unique mating ritual without flinching at the flash of your camera? More than 100 years after Charles Darwin visited during his legendary voyage aboard the Beagle, adventurers continue to use his footsteps as a guide for their own extraordinary journeys

Are you ready for a visit?

Mini Spy Camera! ENKLOV Review!

Several years ago…. like a LOT, a lot, A LOT of years ago I worked as a Mystery Shopper. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work and at the time not much competition. Now, Mystery Shoppers have to remember details. A lot of details. UGH! Having raised kids my brain cells are tired. Remember? DETAILS?!? Are you kidding me?! I barely can remember how to get home everyday. I would have killed for this little camera. So tiny! Check out the HD Hidden Camera from ENKLOV!
Mini HD Camera button sizedThis little camera is not only TINY; as in the size of a button! It’s also 720P HD and wireless.

The camera can be remotely viewed on your smart phone or iPad! 

Button camera

The ENKLOV supports a Micro SD card up to 128GB. No SD card arrives with the camera so be sure to grab one when you order your camera.

Let me start from the beginning. The camera was a breeze to set up. I’ve never had anything arrive with such detailed instructions WITH photos!! Step by STEP!! Download the app and within 3 minutes I was walking around the house making a video.
Micro Mini HD CameraHOLY GUACAMOLE BATMAN this camera takes great pictures and videos!!

A smart camera that sets the time without you having to mess with anything! Time and date are correct from the start. Set the camera up with motion detection as well as taking snapshots.

The battery is a 3800mAh high capacity rechargeable lithium battery which will allow me to 10 HOURS of recording time.

I am blown away at the sharpness of video that this little camera provides! WOW!!! I can even download the video straight to my phone without the Micro SD card! Check this OUT!! This is straight to my phone no SD card!

I charged my battery overnight but the booklet says that the battery will be fully charged in 2 to 3 hours. A fully charged battery gives me over 7 hours of video time!

Not only can I wear this camera and disguise it as a button!! But I could also hide it around the house and watch remotely from my phone. Now when 5-year-old Alice is too quiet I will know WHY!!!

Video Format: AVI
Video Coding: H.264
Video Frame Rate:15-30fps
Sensor: CMOS
Antenna:2.4G 802.11cn (external WiFi antenna)


Are you kidding?! This camera is AWESOME!! The picture quality is amazing and so small I can hide it anywhere!! What do I have to whine about??

5 easy ways to reduce your energy bills

How much do you dread receiving your next energy bill? The problem is that the cost of energy is not likely to decrease hugely any time soon. But there are things you can do to reduce the amount you pay for domestic electricity at home, or commercial electricity for your business premises. It’s easy to resign yourself to having to pay the same high costs each month, whereas you could be thinking about making changes.

All of the tips provided in this article can be put to use either in a home, or in a business premises. Remember, it’s important to stop and think about what you could do to save money; doing any of the things we suggest is not difficult and it’s worth the effort in the long term.

Have your air conditioning serviced regularly

Air conditioning is something that many people start to take for granted. It’s there and it seems to be working, so you just forget about it. The problem is that if your air conditioning system is not working effectively, its going to use more energy to keep your property cool. You should always stick to a regular maintenance schedule for your air conditioning.

Turn off the lights and consider using timers

Lights being left on when not necessary can end up costing you a lot of unnecessary expenditure over time. It’s important to make sure that your family, or workforce, are aware of the importance of switching off lights. You may also want to use timers in your home or business premises, to make sure that lights are used efficiently.

Make sure your appliances are working efficiently

You may think that the appliances in your home are all working efficiently, but how do you actually know this is the case? It’s not a good idea to neglect your appliances. If you do then not only could they start using more power than necessary, to operate; they could also wear out more quickly than you would like. You should make sure that the appliances in your home or business premises are serviced on a regular basis.

Do not leave devices on stand by

You may not realize this, but devices use up energy, even when they are left on standby. You can save money on your energy bills by making sure the TV in your home is switched off after use, or making sure that the people who work for you turn off their computers before they leave for the night.

Make sure your property is well insulated

One of the biggest energy saving actions you can take is making sure that your home, or business premises, is insulated as it should be. You should place insulating material in your loft space, and use weather stripping around doors and windows. This does not take that much effort and it’s a good way of reducing the amount you pay for energy.

Take time to implement any of these tips and you should find that your energy bills reduce over time.
