I started posting about Kuala Lumpur travel tips few weeks ago. I’ve been now in Kuala Lumpur for few weeks and have settled in quite nicely. As my stay is quite long, I decided I needed more than what a hotel can offer and ended up calling my KL home an excutive suite in one of the many brand new highrises within a very short walking distance from the extravagant KLCC. I believe renting a modern furnished apartment is without doubt the way to go whenever one’s stay exceeds one week in a cosmopolitan city. I am extremely pleased with my new place and appreciate the pleasure of settling down for a while after having been on the road for so long. I have great amount of comfort and all the amenities I would enjoy in Vancouver or Toronto including high speed internet, cable TV, large LCD screen, and the luxury of having all I need within a short walking distance.

There are different types of Scuba Dives and Scuba diving holidays each having its unique characteristics, benefits, and disadvantages.

Wreck Diving: When a ship sinks, it creates a great habitat for marine life and an environment where lots of marine species thrive. This in turn translates into great diving and great locations for underwater photographers. Wreck dives also offer a unique blend of history and diving as ship wreckage is associated with a war, pirates, a treasure, or accidents.

Italian Opera Take 2: Verona Arena

Posted on August 19th, 2006 filed in Travelogues

While La Scala is the ultimate connoisseur italian indoor opera venue, Verona Arena is the must-experience-open-air venue for all including those non opera fans. It is not only listed on every touristic guide of Verona but also ranks high on almost every must-do list in Italy. It is now accepted that if you want to attend to one opera in your life, then you must do it at the Verona Arena.

The Arena is a roman amphitheater in Verona, an ancient city located one hour west of Venice and famous for its being the stage of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliette’ (More on that in a later post). The arena is almost 2000 years old and for centuries has been the mecca for lavish games and art productions.
