Things You Should Know About Surabaya

Greetings To All Blog Readers,

Before I start my talks with you all, Let Me Introduce - Safira Juanda Resort [Residential prestigious south of Surabaya]

Yes, I had GREAT POSITIVE EXPERIENCES with this RESORT. 

It is Close to Juanda International Airport, Railway Station and Terminal Gedangan Purabaya.The main road access Sidoarjo-Surabaya-Malang via East Rim. Also close to Alfamart, Indomart and Superindo.



Surabaya is the capital of the East Java province and is the second largest city in Indonesia. Surabaya is a commercial center with a big seaport - probably one of the largest in the region. The population of this city is approximately 3 million. It is the gateway city to Mount Bromo and to Mount Bali. Though many residents speak the local language Javanese, the national language of Indonesia is Bahasa. Bahasa is the official language and is used in business and education. Recently, English is also used for different purposes such as advertisings and public signs.

The Airport in the city is called Juanda Airport and has regular flights to the capital city, Jakarta and to other major cities of Indonesia. This is the second busiest airport in the country after Jakarta. A few direct international flights are also available from this airport. A fixed fare taxi service is available from the airport to the city which is around 18 km away.

When considering the main attractions in the area, "Surabaya zoo" takes a leading position as one of the most visited attractions. It is the largest zoo in Southeast Asia occupying a width of over 15 hectares and has been divided into several fractions for aquarium and brine, Bird watching, night animals and for a large variety of mammals.

The zoo was opened to public on the 31st August 1916 by a group of animal lovers. Now it is estimated that over 3,500 animals representing more than 400 species are housed in the zoo including Indonesia's rare and other endangered animals in the world. The tower in the zoo is a fantastic way to enjoy an all-inclusive panoramic view of the entire zoo. Visitors who would love to get on the back of the biggest mammal on earth will have the chance to have an exhilarating elephant back ride and also a camel ride.

I want to tell my experience about my trip to East Java especially to Mount Bromo when I was still at the secondary school, 12 years ago. I went with my parents, uncle, my friend and a driver. Our family started the tour from Bogor to Tegal, Central Java. We stayed one night in the hotel.

The next day, we started our trip from Tegal to Surabaya, East Java. We stayed the night in Garden Hotel at Jl. Pemuda Surabaya. The next day we concluded the trip. We chose the route from Surabaya, Sidoarjo, Pasuruan, and stopped in Gending, a small town, about 12 km at the east of Probolinggo to meet an old friend.

Important Things About Best Mens Water Shoes

Greetings To Blog Readers,

Before I start my talks, Let Me Introduce - Water Shoes For Men

I am thankful to Soutdoors Team. I read their INFORMATIVE ARTICLE about "Best Water Shoes Reviews 2017" and then purchased "Columbia Men’s Bahama Vent PFG Slip-On Boat".

For me, personally, I like to have a show that is good in the water, as well as for hiking since most of my fishing spots require a little bit of a walk.

I already joined their team at - Facebook | Twitter | Google Plus | Pinterest



For those who enjoy water sports men's water shoes should be at the top of the list of purchases, to ensure maximum protection and the best possible grip on slippery wet surfaces. If you are planning on taking a more amphibious route, water shoes offer the functionality to be able to head into the water whenever it takes your fancy, and be assured of comfort when you return to dry land.

High quality outdoor performance footwear brands such as Merrell, Teva, North Face and Keen all produce excellent shoes, which offer grip, support and protection whether in the water and out. They are ideal for multi sports wear, and great men's summer shoes in their own right. men's water shoes offer a robust construction, excellent grip, a high degree of comfort and great versatility. However a new breed of shoes have emerged, offering even better performance on dry land, whilst still holding their own in the water.

Hybrid shoes are rising in popularity, offering the benefits of hiking shoes, whilst being water ready, lightweight, and perfect for all summer adventures. The trend was started by Seattle based Keen shoes, and whilst they have only been around for a few years, they make up for it with technology, innovative designs and exceptional performance.

As recreational water sports get more demanding and challenging it is more crucial than ever that kids water shoes are chosen in order to minimise the risk of injury. As well as reducing the possibility of slipping over or damaging toes, footwear also needs to provide support and stability for the wearer's ankles. Fortunately over recent years there have been huge developments in the materials that not only add slip resistance and protection to the foot, but are also lightweight.

The technology in footwear and growth in extreme sports for adults has eventually filtered through to the children's footwear industry. Kids water shoes and kids performance shoes are now abundant in the market with a whole host of footwear choices available to parents. In particular when seeking to protect children's feet from wet, slippery conditions many styles of waterproof trainers, water shoes and kids water sandals can readily be found.

Also ensure the footwear is non-slip in wet environments. Water shoes can often be used in slippery conditions near boats, pools and on rocks on the beach. Several performance footwear companies have designed their own 'spider-like' technologies for the soles that ensure they grip well to wet surfaces. This will reduce the risk of injury, let alone the embarrassment as the poor child or parent slips over and hurts themselves whilst walking across the jetty just before or after they climb aboard their impressive speed boat or sailing ship!

Things You Wish You Know Before Traveling To Iceland

Hello Readers,

Before I start my talks on this TOPIC, Let Me Introduce - Iceland Travel

Berglind Rós & Jana Maria - They are passionate about Iceland and love blogging! They really hope you enjoy their posts and find the answer to your questions!

I had GREAT POSITIVES EXPERIENCES with their BLOG.

Iceland is a unique destination that offers great travel experience all-year-round. No matter when you travel Iceland will not disappoint you. 


Iceland is one of the most stunningly beautiful places on earth, and you will be mesmerized by the clear blue lakes, natural geysers, rolling meadows, volcanic craters and abundance of wildlife. It is also rich with culture and history, and there are many museums to visit. This is truly a trip of a lifetime and you will want to make the most of it by touring some of the top attractions.

If you are traveling to Iceland in Summer season and you think that a light spring jacket or a sweater is more than enough. Then you are greatly mistaken. A summer day in Iceland is equivalent to a proper winter day in many other countries. Besides that the temperature in Iceland can change quickly from warm to fairly hot to cold in just a matter of minutes. So then the question is what exactly you should pack? Let's see. Several sweaters, a light winter jacket, a fur coat, a pair of gloves and two-three scarves along with a hat.

Iceland is a very expensive country and is truly not the right destination for travelers who want to be under budget. Expect to get shocked with high prices in grocery stores, bars, coffee shops, restaurants and any other retail store you plan to buy from. The best advice I can give to budget conscious travelers is that you can spend on things that you think are necessary. I would recommend you to spend on experiences, not on things; it's alright if you don't bring back gifts for everyone back home.

Reykjavik - This capital city is full of funky cafe's, brightly colored houses and great restaurants. Meadows, rock formations, rivers and beaches surround you in this breathtaking city.

Iceland is among the top destinations that are safe for traveling for single female travelers, both for its incredible scenery, comfortable and relaxed environment. The land of fire and ice, Iceland is truly a safe country for women. In Reykjavik, you can find the most amazing nightlife and also experience the local lifestyle, as well as the local music. There are many other activities you can also do in Iceland like bathing in a lagoon, snorkeling and hiking on a glacier.

The Lake Myvatn nature reserve in the volcanic north of Iceland is a paradise for water birds living on the lake, river and surrounding wetlands. In this picturesque setting, the Myvatn Nature Baths blends in well with the natural environment. The outstanding feature here is the geothermal lagoon with it's relaxing, soothing, mineral rich waters. The center features modern, comfortable facilities and a cafeteria. Open all year round.

Iceland is a lifestyle and culture that is totally unique and prides itself on its quirkiness. There is no word for please in native language. In a recent survey, 20 percent of the population said they still believed in elves. This may be the only place on earth that has modern-day conveniences in a society that is both charming and ruggedly sophisticated.

While the social activities may be unsophisticated, the cuisine is unparalleled. Seafood dishes are fresh and exotic. Regular seafood dishes include Asian crab legs, cod, sushi, lobster and "Plokkfiskur" and rarities such as whale, puffin or foal. Popular red meat delicacies include free range lamb and the lamb hot dog, the most popular meal on the island.
