Cyclone poses 'serious threat to life' in Queensland

A huge tropical cyclone taking aim at Australia's Queensland state has strengthened to a Category 5 -- the highest designation on Australia's cyclone classification system -- and its landfall is "likely to be more life threatening than any experienced during recent generations," forecasters said.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasi has winds gusting up to 295 kph (183 mph) and is expected to maintain that intensity until making landfall in northeastern Queensland late Wednesday evening local time, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said.

The cyclone threatens more devastation for Queensland, which already has been hit by deadly flooding in recent weeks.

"Yasi ... poses an extremely serious threat to life and property within the warning area, especially between Port Douglas and Townsville. This impact is likely to be more life threatening than any experienced during recent generations," the bureau says on its website.

Hundreds of patients have been evacuated fro…

Aegean the Best Regional Airline in Europe

In 2013 Aegean Airlines won the prestigious Skytrax Award for "Best Regional Airline in Europe" for the third consecutive year. 
In a passionate acceptance speech the President 'Theodore Vassilakis' dedicated the award to his employees stating that "each in his/her own way contributed to achieving this high goal". 
Personally speaking Aeagean Airlines has always been a pleasure to travel with, as they take care of the small details with a certain youthful style. 
The Aegean Airlines website is well designed too and now even features a low cost calendar to select the cheapest dates to travel. The Air Hostesses must also win the award for being the the most young and beautiful with their slick cut uniforms and extremely elegant, polite manner. 
All of this is in stark contrast to an ever decreasing level of poor in flight services offered by most European Airlines. 
Alas, now in 2014 is seems that Aegean Airlines have caught the annoying disease of pestering…

Extremely Funny signs from around the world!

Signage around the world works on the principle of "Symbolic Reasoning" whereby humans are the only species on planet earth able to give special meaning to a piece of metal or plastic with letters on it.

Some of them confusing and others make you roar with laughter.

Italy’s new Fast Train – Freccia Rossa (Red Arrow)

Train travel within Italy in recent years since the introduction of a new class of train service called FrecciaRossa (Red Arrow).

Former Amateur Traveler guest Ira Bernstein (Travel to Turin and Bologna (or eating our way through Italy) – Episode 208 and Travel to Venice and the Veneto – Episode 182) reports:

"Its speed allowed us to take a day trip from Bologna to Milan and back down to Florence (we had lunch with friends in Milan). To give you some idea, consider the 296 miles (476 km) from Milan to Rome. Taking an Intercity train takes between 6:30 and 7:56. In contrast, the Freccia Rossa only takes 2:59 to 3:30. Evidently, the Freccia Rossa replaces the Eurostar".

One can choose from 87 connections a daywith easily memorized scheduled timetables including1 NON STOP train Rome-Milan and Milan-Rome every hour, with departures every minute "zero" from 6** am to 19, with the possibility of reaching Turin or Naples during peak hours.
