    If you are one of those vacationers who prefer to practice ecological tourism, one of the most rewarding experiences is to visit the Josone Park. Located on 1rst Avenue and 56, Varadero, this paradise is approximately of 9 hectares large. The Josone Park is certainly a great botanical garden possessing a varied nature, with different species of violets.

    This entire peaceful environment owes its origin to a couple who in 1942 dreamed of creating a site to be a symbol of their love and passion. The land on which today stands the park are not reflected in the original plan submitted to the City of Cardenas, Matanzas, for the founding of the city of Varadero, a fact that occurred on September 5, 1887.

    However, it is known that these lands were part of the Varadero Hacienda, owned by Bernardo Carrillo de Albornoz, later inherited by his descendants.

    But back to the idyllic story which gave rise to this wonderful garden, and that without a second thought, its going to be of your total satisfaction for your . The Josone Park was the idea of the couple formed by Onelia Mendez and Jose Iturrioz.

    This marriage baptized this park with the name Josone as a result of the union of the first letters of their names: Jos and One.

    The park has inside a lagoon called Laguna de la Paz, located near the center of the property. The lagoon formerly was more extensive than today.

    The Josone Park is the largest green space in Varadero, where the natural, historical, architectural, cultural, floristic and ornithological coexist. This botanical garden opens its doors to visitors from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm, and offers nautical services, recreation, swimming pool, restaurants, bars, and craft sales, as well as services for events, and dinners.

    Also, visitors can find five restaurants, specializing in Creole and international cuisine, and rental rowboats to get around the lagoon. It also gives tourists the chance to appreciate different types of birds, or simply sit under the shadow of the trees to pass an exquisite moment in the middle of the park and with the best sea of the world a few steps away.

    Each year, the park is visited by about 500 000 tourists, indicating the benefits of this paradise. Most vacationers appreciate the pool, despite the closeness of the sea, as well as The Star, which was a club game. The Josone Park is undoubtedly the best destination you can choose if referring to have a good time with nature.

    There is hardly any busy road or street that does not include car park barriers. The purpose of installing car park barriers is to restrict illegal trespassers. This would in turn control traffic flow and thus offer lot of convenience to people.

    Car park barrier aid in controlling vehicle flow at various check posts and only allow passing after undergoing through checking. There are various kinds of car park barriers that are being located at various places.

    These Car park barriers could either manned or unmanned which are also known as automatic barriers. Automatic car park barriers help in exercising full control over flow of vehicles round the clock. Sudden changes in climatic conditions are not at a hindrance in the operation of these automatic barriers.

    Another common variant of car park barrier is pay and exit type. In this system, the barrier rises and allows you to pass by upon insertion of your ticket. Some of these come with inbuilt sensors that give out the exact time when you have passed through them.

    In terms of safety to car owners, there are two kinds of car park barriers; column mounted and floor mounted. Although the purpose of both is same (preventing vehicles from breaching car park perimeter) they both work with slight variations. These two barriers are further classified into flexible and rigid options.

    Flexible car park barriers are designed to withstand minor knocks without causing any damage to the barrier or the vehicle. Damages caused to vehicles is minimised in this kind of system and hence the chances of injury to the passenger is reduced.

    Rigid car park barriers on the other hand stop vehicles but the possibility of causing damage to the vehicle and its occupant passenger are high. Now let us take a look at the two main types of car park barriers that we have discussed earlier.

    Column mounted car park barrier: The key benefit of using this system is that they hardly have any footprint in the parking area thereby provide ample space for parking. These can be mounted directly on structural columns with interim posts fitted. This makes them ideal for huge constructions and new buildings. Designers can assess the impact of forces and their impact in case of any adversity.

    Floor mount barriers on the other hand are the only option for places where columns are not available to set up barriers for ramps, split levels, car park approaches or in order to protect door ways. Floor mount car park barriers are also the only choice available for perimeter refurbishments in order to minimise structural upgrading.

    Theft and damage are the two main concerns for any car owner. In spite of parking their vehicles in appropriate places, these two fears keep haunting the minds of car owners. However with car park barriers in place, both risks that may arise due to theft and damage can be averted or at least minimised.

    The quiet Cheshire countryside holds Britain’s favourite wildlife attraction the Chester Zoo. Noted as one of the fifteen best zoos in the world by Forbes in 2007, the family-owned organization is famous for its conservation efforts and displaying the biodiversity of the world in innovative ways. A visit to this zoo is a great way to spend an educative day with children of all ages.

    When George Mottershead started collecting animals as a hobby, he ended up with quite a collection that needed more room. After he was wounded in the First World War, he worked to make his dream of a private zoo come true and opened Chester Zoo in 1931. Working with new ideas of Carl Hagenbeck the enclosures for the animals were not the classic Victorian cages but moats and trenches. One of its first major attractions was the Chimp Island, where the use of water was used to separate the chimps from the visitors for the first time in a zoo.

    Initially just 9 acres, the zoo now covers 111 acres and can be navigated using various methods of transport. A monorail system that crisscrosses the grounds gives a great overview of all the animals. The canal network is also turned into a tour route during peak season with the water bus services. For those who want a closer look without the hassle of walking, hire a mobility scooter at the entrance.

    But the stars of the place are the animals. Counting over 420 species, the zoo houses more than 9000 animals living in enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitats as closely as possible. An entire heard of Asian elephants live with monitor lizards, jungle fowl and other creatures of Asian origins. The ‘Spirit of Jaguar’ exhibit holds spotted jaguars and an elusive black panther along with tree boas and poison arrow frogs. Fruit bats, orang-utans and okapis are also animals who call this place home. Its successful chimpanzee and rhinoceros breeding programmes are well known as well.

    Visiting the zoo’s extensive grounds can be a great day trip from any of the Millennium & Copthorne Hotels UK. With the seasonal and weekend offers given by the you can take the weekend off into the countryside. Several of these are situated near popular airports and stations, making for convenient transport options as well.

    A tropical haven set in the heart of the Indian Ocean, the miracle of Sri Lanka is home to over ten national parks. These national parks are given this designation due to the diverse and rare plant life, animal life or bird life that frequents its forests. When in Sri Lanka, three main sanctuaries are revered: Yala, Sinharaja and Wasgamuwa, and these three areas are frequented by both locals and tourists alike. Whether you are an animal lover, a photographer or even a travel writer, these natural sanctuaries take up a special place in Sri Lankan tourism. Its beauty and diversity, unparalleled in the region, are also home to a series of national parks. Though sometimes overlooked, the Bundalla National Park is one such icon of national pride that is located close to Yala, just off Hambantota. >

    Home to widespread populations of elephants, turtles, crocodiles and even the occasional leopard, tourists visiting Sri Lanka would be remiss if they avoid venturing into the greenery of the Bundalla National Park. The natural beauty alone merits a visit for the park is located adjacent to a lagoon and the azure waters are beautifully complemented by the lush green shrubbery surrounding the waterway. It is also an ideal location to watch crocodiles as they lazily cut through the clear waters or bask in the sun.

    When visiting, most tourists find it beneficial to hire a tracker or a guide who is familiar with the park for they are often quite adept at drawing out wildlife for an optimum experience in the wild. A in the area would also co-ordinate the hiring of such a guide as well as the transport necessary to traverse across the terrain of the site. The Bundalla National Park is also an ideal excursion for those staying at as they would have the opportunity to experience the abundant wildlife in the country while also enjoying their beach vacation. Guests who choose to stay at Ranna 212, a safari hotel located down south, will also have the opportunity of visiting bird sanctuaries as well as the Udawalawe National Park thereby adding value to their vacation in the pearl of the Indian Ocean.

  • The Unseen Story Of Corbett National Park

    Comments Off on The Unseen Story Of Corbett National Park
    July 15, 2020 /  Zoo and Park

    Jim Corbett National Park might be not a new topic for you as there are so many blogs, news, article online today. One can very easily get the news update and tourist information very easily, one just need to google but in this edition GTI Travels going to present you some unknown or comparatively less heighted story. We already know that the Jim Corbett National Park is one of the oldest virgin forest of India and the park was named Jim Corbett to honor the great hunter of Britain; Edward James Jim’ Corbett who later became conservationist and play a vital role in the establishment of Corbett Park.

    The legend hunter Edward James Corbett was born on 25 July 1875 in Nainital in the Kumaon of the Himalaya. He was eighth child of Willam Christopher and Mary Jane Corbett. His father William Christopher Corbett was the postmaster of Nainital town. Between 1907 to 1938 Jim Corbett tracked and shot 19 tigers and 14 leopards, all these are man eater and killed over 1200 people.

    The famous tiger and leopard killed by Edward James Corbett:

    The Champawat Tigress, who killed up to 436 before been killed by Jim Corbett in 1907. Tigers of Chowgarh, another name of horror in Kumaon Division of Uttarakhand killed by Jim Corbett Thak man-eater were a tigress of Eastern Kumaon division. The tigress killed only four human being but her story is wildlife famous as the last hunt of legendry hunter Jim Corbett before being conservationist and the author.

    There is a village on the outskirts of , Chhoti Haldwani (Kaladungi) where the legendry hunter gunned down. The bungalow of Corbett has been converted into a museum. All his personal items that he used when went after man-eaters like his caps, jackets, torches, walking sticks, medical kit and articles used during camping. All details of his hunting expeditions, rare pictures and letters are handle with care and available in Corbett museum.

    However Mr. Jim Corbett was no longer with us, he was dead more than 50 years ago on 19 April 1955 in Nyeri, Kenya but the villagers of Kumaon division are still keeping the memories of the legend with care. For instance, the chaupal’ (meeting place), which was used by Jim Corbett for meeting with the villagers is still there and the gun that he used for hunting, gifted to his assistant Sher Singh Negi before leaving for Kenya, now a day that gun is with Trilok Singh Negi who is son so Sher Singh Negi, is a proud possession of the villagers and is displayed before visitors.

  • Northeast LA New Construction Glassell Park

    There has been quite the surge in new construction hitting the Northeast Los Angeles real estate market lately, particularly in Glassell Park. continues to be popular with home seekers who love the area and the views but are priced out of the costlier market.

    Glassell Park, which is boxed between Glendale, Eagle Rock, Atwater Village and Elysian Valley has seen a resurgence of interest after Eagle Rock began to gentrify seven or eight years ago. Because it is a hilly neighborhood, many homes in the area have spectacular views. .

    First we saw a development of four homes by 4site Real Estate, designed by Holz Architecture, located in the hills of Glassell Park at 4239-4243 Scandia Way. Featuring panoramic views, vaulted ceilings, and walls of glass, these modern homes started at $889,000 and went up to $959,000. As of Fall of 2013, three have sold and the fourth is currently in escrow.

    Next to hit the market is the latest from Heyday (who were behind the Rock Row project in Eagle Rock). Peak Place is a development of 6 fee-simple single-family homes located at 3510 N Fletcher in Glassell Park. Each home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and is about 1,900 sq. ft. in size, with a private courtyard for its outdoor space. These homes have achieved the LEED Gold status with their sustainable features, from tankless water heaters to high efficiency furnaces. As of Fall 2013, asking prices range from $625,000 to $640,000.

    And soon to come is the North East Los Angeles Union development, which is currently under construction. This is a development of 52 modern homes located on Eagle Rock Boulevard in Glassell Park. With a range of floor plans, from 2 bedrooms to 4 bedrooms, the asking prices will range from the upper-$400s to the low-$600s.

  • Lexus Intelligent Park Assist Tackles Parallel Parking

    Comments Off on Lexus Intelligent Park Assist Tackles Parallel Parking
    July 3, 2020 /  Zoo and Park

    Everyone asks the same question. Will it find a parking space for me? Alas, no, but the Lexus Intelligent Park Assist, first made available on the 2007 Lexus LX 460 is still a significant advance in intuitive automotive technology. The system, which is optional, adds $3,425 to the base price of the $69,150 luxury sedan.

    The Toyota Motor Corporation began to develop the system in 2004 and made it available in 2005 in Japan only on the Prius. Cars equipped with the Intelligent Park Assist are fitted with a camera to the rear of the vehicle, a computer, and a steering sensor.

    When the driver pulls up to a spot for parallel parking, the vehicle is placed in reverse and the Intelligent Park Assist is activated. The camera places a live image of the parking area on the navigation screen in the center of the console. The image is overlaid with a box and four arrows. Using the arrows, the driver moves the box into the available space by tapping the screen.

    Once the placement process is complete, the driver touches an activation button on the screen and releases the wheel while keeping his foot on the brake. The car will not stop for pedestrians or objects that may be in its path, so the driver must monitor the maneuver. If the driver takes his foot off the brake, the car immediately stops.

    Additionally, the correct level of speed must be maintained. If the car is moving too slowly or too quickly, parking will also be halted. Once the vehicle has worked itself into the space, the car must be manually placed in drive and pulled forward to complete the positioning.

    The Intelligent Park Assist system is not good for tight parking spaces. The area used must be four feet longer than the car itself. That translates to 20.5 feet for the LS 460 and 20.9 feet for the LS 460 L (which has a longer wheelbase.)

    The camera can also be used for backing the car into a parking space, with the driver only being required to position the vehicle in front of the area so that the camera may image the space. The same guiding principles then apply.

    Some reviewers who have tested the system complain that the learning curve is sufficiently tricky and long that simply parking the car the old-fashioned way is infinitely easier. Obviously drivers new to the Intelligent Park Assist need to practice with the technology before using it in real-life parking situations.

    Still, however, with the increased use of cameras in automobiles and with Honda already selling a competing Smart Parking Assist System in Japan, this kind of intuitive technology will become more common in the cars of the future on models more drivers can afford. Designers will continue to refine the execution of the technology, making our vehicles smarter and safer in the process.

  • Yosemite National Park Adventure

    Located in east-central California, Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular parks in the nation. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Yosemite is known for its steep waterfalls and rushing streams, its striking granite cliffs and its redwood trees, and for its rich wildlife. The park encloses 1,189 square miles, of which 95 percent is dedicated wilderness. The vast scale of Yosemite and its outdoor splendor draw in over 3.5 million nature lovers, outdoor sports enthusiasts and tourists every year.

    There are a variety of ways to access the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park, the most traditional of which are its over 800 miles of hiking trails. Day hikes in the park range from easy strolls to strenuous treks up mountain sides. For the true lover of the great outdoors, the park also offers backpacking, or backcountry hiking and camping. These expeditions are multi-night, on-trail treks into the wilderness regions of the Yosemite. Backpacking in Yosemite requires a wilderness permit, and these can be reserved up to 24 weeks in advance. Reservations are strongly recommended, as some trails are occasionally booked out a full 24 weeks in advance. Yosemite is bear country, so all backpackers are required to exercise proper anti-bear precautions in the wilderness, especially regarding food.

    Other options for getting into Yosemite include horseback riding and bicycling. If you’re into horseback riding you can rent your own horse, as there are trails within Yosemite designated for your use. Others interested in exploring the park from the back of a riding animal can join a guided mule ride. There are 12 miles of paved bicycle paths in Yosemite, and the park rents bikes for the use of its patrons. However, off-trail mountain biking is not permitted anywhere within Yosemite.

    Yosemite is also a big draw for rock climbers. Indeed, Yosemite’s Camp 4 is one of the places where the sport was developed. Challenges in the park range from the Merced River Canyon and its sustained crack climbs to the big walls of the Valley to the stunning 3,300-foot face of El Capitan.

    The Merced River also offers swimming beaches and white-water rafting during the summer months. Fishing in Yosemite is also popular, although fishing requires both a California fishing license and compliance with the park’s own rules and regulations. The fun in Yosemite does not end with the coming of winter either. While the park rarely receives enough snow to merit skis or snowshoes, several trails remain open between December and mid-March for winter hiking. If the park does receive enough snowfall, these become cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails.
