Where I want to fly

Fly in the air and go down on the water? It’s easy. Try a hydro-glider ride. It’s a cross between a small plane and a catamaran. Dispersed on the water surface, the pilot will take you to the sky, where you can watch the wonderful scenery of the floodplain or the surrounding area of the reservoir. Speed hydroplane — about 75 km/h. usually Fly together with the pilot. But if you’re on a diet, and your companion too, that is, the total weight does not exceed 120 kg, you can fly together, not counting the “commander”.

Beach etiquette: rules of behavior on vacation

There is office etiquette, rules of conduct at the table and even the rules of phone calls! Passion.ru introduces you to etiquette on the beach. Enjoy your health!
Late summer. Deckchair. Family beach expensive hotel and Spa. Dozing off under the giant brim of my hat while the kids have fun with the animators. And suddenly: “Pis-piss, come on, daughter, pee in the stones, no one is looking”… And I immediately moved to Anapa. Mid 80’s, city beach. But even then, all my insides protested against non-compliance with basic standards of behavior on the beach, regardless of whether you are a baby or a lady in the “last attack of youth.”

Is there no beach etiquette? Judging by the fact that from year to year people change clothes, covered with a towel, extinguish cigarette butts in the sand and walk along the promenade in shorts and bras(Oh, Yes, sorry, swimwear), it has not come up?! Nothing of the kind, it exists — I am happy to share with readers Passion.ru these simple rules. Especially since many are just planning their vacation.

On the beach and by the pool
Even if the area of your beach is more like a cat’s rookery, and looking at the crowd of people, you remember the footage from the movie “Be my husband”, it is still necessary to adhere to certain rules of etiquette. They, by the way, very much depend on what type of beach you have a rest. The beaches are family-run or shared, and the beaches were Topless (where the girls can sunbathe without the top accessories, swimsuit), nudist (here supposed to be without clothes) and separate for men and women. Depending on the type of beach depends on your “dress code”.

For your psychological comfort and the benefit of others it is recommended for a couple of weeks before the holiday a little “Browning”, weeding a couple of beds or go to the Solarium and, of course, to do hair removal. Including bikini area, so as not to drive in the paint of others.
Coming to the beach with a full marathon is not fashionable. Maximum — waterproof mascara and sunscreen. Continue reading

Open season: the seven best beach destinations of autumn

September‑October is a very pleasant holiday time.
Prices at the resorts begin a solemn decline on the beaches is rapidly reducing the number of tourists, and the weather is conducive to long trips and excursions. Having carefully studied the map of the world, we have found seven directions for you, where it will be warm and not boring in the velvet season.
Santorini, Greece

Weather: September air +24…+26, water +22, October air +22…+24, water +21

Blue domes of churches, snow-white walls of almost toy houses on the ledges of rocks and colorful volcanic beaches have long turned Santorini into a postcard island. Both nature and people worked on the creation of the island. Nature for him three and a half thousand years ago blew up the volcano Santorini and left on the surface only the edge of the crater. Everything else, along with the crater has sunk to the bottom and from there the Aegean sea is still boiling: on the surface of the water the temperature does not fall below +30 C even in September‑October. The place of the “saucepan” is quite simple to determine: there are almost always tourist boats cruising and diving fans tickle their nerves.

Where to stay: Proteas Hotel in Kamari. Double room in September will cost 4 300 rubles per day.
Liguria, Italy

Weather: in September air +24…+26, water +23, in October air +21…+23, water +21.

Strewn with beaches, palazzos and photogenic fortresses, the Italian region of Liguria begins with Genoa, a city of bankers, seafarers and adventurers. It was here that Christopher Columbus grew up, who discovered a good half of the world. The first Bank appeared there. And for the first time we realized that it was time for Italy to unite.
