Statistics: UK Summer 2018 Holidays Locations

Every summer, the people of the UK decide to get up and get out. The UK might turn into a stunning place in the summer, but few things beat a trip to many parts of Europe, the Caribbean or the Americas. For that reason, we wanted to take a look at some of the most popular tourist destinations this year for the major UK city dwellers.

Where are the people of each major city flying off to this summer? What seems to be the hit experience? With so many of us now booking up last minute holidays, where can you expect to see everyone going?

According to online travel agency Loveholidays, they found that some of the major spots for those in London, for example, included Jamaica, Cyprus, Morocco, and Turkey. Paris, of course, is still high on the list. Jamaica, Cyprus, Morocco, and Turkey, though, appear to be some of the most popular take-off destinations for those living in the capital at this moment in time.

Other popular destinations were noted by their North/South divide. For example, people from the North are more likely to head to places which are nearby, familiar and tried-and-tested: the Balearic Islands, for example. Southerners, though, are more likely to go for more ambitious places like Sri Lanka or St Lucia. It’s quite interesting to see the divide.

What is interesting is that those in London are far less likely to hit up two major European last-minute hot spots: Croatia and Bulgaria. Among the most beautiful parts of Europe, they are a surprising exclusion from regular tourist stop-off point for those from the South. It’s also the same with the Dominican Republic: far more likely for a Northern traveler than a Southern once.

The main exception to this is Essex, where people love to fly to places like Croatia, Malta, and Mexico. Southern flyers are less likely to go and visit places like Portugal and Cuba, too. There’s certainly a bit of a hidden indicator here, and I can’t quickly put my finger on it…

What about the Midlands?

The good people of the Midlands are kind of stuck in a limbo: thrown in with the answers from both sides of the country. For those who come from places like Birmingham, for example, popular tourist stop-off points included Cuba and the Caribbean. Trips to Egypt, too, are very popular. Cyprus and Bulgaria are quite prominent from a European standpoint.

The Greek Isles are popular with people from the Midlands as well as people from cities such as Liverpool. There’s a lot of diversity out there on the topic, and a lot of interesting discoveries. From Newcastle and Sunderland preferring Majorca and Bulgaria to the Scots looking to make a run for places like the Canary Islands, Portugal and Spain, it’s interesting to see the divide in climate, culture and cost depending on what part of the nation is being looked at for a holiday.

Why Over-40s Should Give Up Ibuprofen

When we have a sore tooth, a sore jaw, a sore back…sore anything, inflammation is often part of the problem. This is why so many take anti-inflammatory and pain management tablets- Ibuprofen. These over-the-counter medications are taken by millions of people every day and can help us to get over a pain to get back on with our days. However, it turns out that Ibuprofen might not be such an advisable product to take for those over the age of 40…

Some studies show that it could have toxic properties for heart muscles, meaning that anyone over the age of 40 should take a deeper look at what they are taking. The FDA found in 2015 that ibuprofen comes with a few ingredients in there that, broadly, could cause problems with the heart. It could be even related to heart attacks and strokes – making it especially worthwhile dodging in your 40s!

What’s better – a sore head or a dead heart?

Many people instead turn to taking solutions like turmeric, instead, offering anti-inflammatory properties without that big warning needed on the bottle. Turmeric is a great solution for this, and can easily be taken due to its high polyphenol count making it very good for the body indeed.

Simply mix it in with a cup of warm water, some honey and some lemon juice and voila! It can be an excellent way to help alleviate that pain without taking in anything that, broadly, our bodies should be avoiding. Ginger, too, is a good source thanks to the fact it can stop inflammation at its source thanks to the power antioxidant effects, ensuring that inflammation and joint acidity can both be minimized and, when possible, neutralized entirely.

Another good and natural source is to use capsaicin, which is found in red peppers. It’s a very easy product to apply, either done so in a cream or a gel form, and can be a great way to help release pain in our joints and muscles.

So, while there are so many natural options to fight inflammation and give your body the help it needs to stay strong and healthy, you should empty your cupboard of such synthetic solutions. As ever, be sure to go and check with a medical professional and make sure you are making the right choice – but, past the age of 40, ibuprofen should probably be minimized and, if possible, not taken at all for the foreseeable future.

The Singular Link Between All Blue-Eyed People

Life tends to throw some very weird situations at us. We find out all manner of odd facts and weird scenarios that simply don’t sound like they should be possible. One of the oddest things that you could find out, though, is how our genetics link all blue-eyed people back to one particularly odd trait. Everyone with blue eyes should read this; it turns out you’ve got something rather strange in common!

Given family trees stretch back much further than any of us usually tend to go, it’s not inconceivable that new scientific discoveries could be true. Apparently, everyone with those beautiful blue eyes has a link to a European gentleman of 6-10,000 years ago. Brown eyes were the main eye colour beforehand, according to gene experts, until OCA2 began to cause changes to the pigment of the eyes.

Today, we can get all manner of eyes – green, grey, hazel; all a similar style of colour to the original brown. Blue, though? Where does that come from?

In 2006, the HERC2 gene was found in Spain when looking at the body of a Stone Age mans preserved body. Experts found that the body had both dark-skinned African genes, and genes from Scandinavia – well, the Scandinavia of the day. Apparently, it’s thanks to this wonderful combination that led to the ‘mutation’ ‘that made blue eyes.

As far as experts can find, this is the oldest proof of this gene occurring – meaning that, as far as we know, Mr. Blue – as we’ll call him – was the very first person to ever have blue eyes. Wild, right?

Dread-inducing Signs Exposing the Truth About Climate Change

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Here’s an example of just some images that show the horrifying destruction that climate change is having on the world around us. It’s not just the reams of data about rising sea levels, glaciers and arctic ice melting away, heat waves, water droughts and weird weather storms; it’s about what’s going on elsewhere.

The Great Barrier Reef

This is one of the most common and terrifying examples of the damage being done to the world. The Great Barrier Reef has been falling apart for some time, with over 2,900 reefs and 900 islands making up the largest coral reef system in the world. As you can see from the images above, it is – or was – a beautiful place.

Now, take a look at this image below.

How could we let things get so bad? We’ve managed to destroy over 1,400 miles of natural wonderment. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it looks like we might have just killed off a fairy-tale if these harrowing images of the before and after are anything to go by.

With over two third of the great barrier reef gone, the change to try and save it looks to have passed. They are dying out, and in 2017 the Nature journal produced a harrowing obituary for what was once a symbol of the thriving life beyond land.

The Alps

Think it’s just tropical parts of the world that are falling into disrepair? Think again. Take a look at this photo of the alps from back in the day – how wonderful and full it looks. With millions of years of history and no signs that they ever wound up as bad as they are today, it’s hard to see the changing of the Alps as ‘just nature’ as many skeptics claim.

As you can see from the image above, the damage to the Alps is far worse than we could ever have imagined. These once stunning 13,000ft regions have become extensively damaged, nothing like the amazing scenes they once were.

It’s expected that with a 2-degree temperature rise in 120 years, we could see another 2-degree rise in just 40 years. This is dreadfully worrying, and shows how much damage we are doing to the world. Not only are the glaciers beginning to sink, but it means that the heat is reflecting off the smaller glaciers meaning it will heat up the planet even more…creating a terrifying prospect for trying to stop nature.

Add in the fact that people worry that ancient pathogens from some of the worst times in human history could be released too, and the sign of the Alps and the Great Barrier Reef falling into such horrible disrepair should do something to help you see the immense damage the world is undergoing at present.

If we don’t do something soon, these kind of natural wonders will become consigned to history books read in oxygen pods as the world is gradually destroyed by our own inaction. It’s time for change.

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Incredible Story of Twins Reunion After Five Decades Apart

War can bring many tragedies, one of the worst being separation of families. War tears apart families and ruins lives; it’s one of the most challenging parts of the human condition. For two twins who separated during the Second World War, though, they never gave up hope that one day they would meet up again.

George Skrzynecky, a 69-year-old Polish-American, was sure he would never find his family after being separated from them and his twin brother, Lucian. They spent nearly five decades apart, as the hardship of finding people from the post-war era was incredibly hard.

Post-War Challenges Begin

Elisabeth Jankowski was one of many people freed from labor camps after the end of the Second World War, and after a brief romance in 1946 she gave birth to Lucian and George before developing a debilitating, major heart condition the year later.

Her children were sent 150 miles south while she went into hospital and slowly degraded. The boys were then relocated to Katowice, Poland, then Rybnik and send into an orphanage. Thankfully, her condition began to slowly improve and Elisabeth began the hunt for her baby boys – turning to the Red Cross for help with family tracing.

Sadly, she was informed that they had gone through the Polish Red Cross and that as a single mother in a struggling condition, that she couldn’t bring them home. Adopted by different families, the twins were separated.

The Search Slowly Begins

At 17, in 1965, George found out that he’d been adopted and that he had been split up from Lucian – something he’d never known. Beginning his own Red Cross family trace, the search proved to be fruitless and nothing came up – George, furious at his past being disclosed, moved to California, USA, to escape his Polish roots.

Various times he would try and find out more about his brother and his family via Red Cross links, but none ever worked. His brother, Lucian, meanwhile, grew up in Poland in a loving family with an adoptive mother who cared for him deeply.

Drafted into the Polish Army, he found out that he was adopted but never found out about his twin. Heading to his old orphanage as far ahead in time as 2014, he discovered that this deep feeling he had harboured throughout his life – that he had a twin brother – was in fact correct.

Beginning a new tracing case with the Polish Red Cross in a more modern era, some exciting and interesting information was found; that Lucian matched much of the information on record for a different file. The case was headed up by Lisa Ghali, who worked for the Red Cross reconnecting families.

A Breakthrough

The case that she found, of course, was that of George himself. Connecting the two men, they met up in Poland at Warsaw Airport and, as you can imagine, they had a very emotional introduction to one another after all that time away.

The two men enjoyed a special reunion, finally able to make up for all of that lost time. While both men are now in their senior years, it’s wonderful to know that they can enjoy what remains of life as two brothers who have so much time to make up for!

They even worked together to find out the origins of their father; a US soldier who had returned to the US prior to their birth. Despite the horrible nature of how the boys were separated, it was wonderful to know that they both – eventually – were able to make up for lost time and spend some much-needed family time together.

If Ever a Zombie Apocalypse- These Are The Places To Go

With shows like The Walking Dead and movies like 28 Days Later making the world of zombie apocalypses seem all-more terrifying and popular in terms of culture, many people find themselves talking about it.

People always think they would be able to handle a zombie apocalypse and take out anything that comes their way, as they would know where to go to survive.

Comedy appeal of the discussion aside, some people have done some real looking into what the most effective places in the world for halting a zombie apocalypse would be – at least for you and your group. Where, then, do people recommend hiding off until it all blows over?

The Secret Bunker, Scotland. Ahh, the home of the hard! Scotland! Presuming you can get to this fine wee isle, you’d be able to survive just about anything from the old Secret Bunker, a famous bunker found 100ft underneath a farmhouse in Scotland. With a 24,000 square-feet bunker to hide in, you could see out anything in here. It’s made to help house critical government people should Scotland ever come under major nuclear attack, but a zombie apocalypse probably counts as major, so you might be able to charm yourself in.

Maunsell Army Forts, England. Found in the Thames, these odd World War II structures might not look great or feel particularly welcoming, but if you are in a rush it’s a start isn’t it? Given they are out at sea, like another option we have, you can lift your feet up and enjoy a nice place to hide from zombies. Of course, they could be zombie fish-men, in which case, well, farewell.

Lawson Tower, Massachusetts. This epic big tower is a 153ft water tower, and would be a great choice providing you can get to the top without becoming dinner for the zombies. Built by Thomas Lawson, it’s built in the theme of an old-age medieval castle after a disagreement with Mrs. Lawson. It would make a fine place for seeing off the threat of zombies, though, for sure!

Alcatraz Island. Good luck getting out there and all… but it would be a fine place to see off the madness and drudgery of a zombie invasion. It’s an old-school prison that was in use for the worst of the worst. While it’s empty today, it would be a fine choice to escape to if you had the supplies and the ability to get there in the first place.

The Federal Reserve Bunker. Built during the Cold War, this high-tech facility was made using 12-inch thick concrete walls that are supposedly nuke proof. Given zombies aren’t meant to be the brightest and are hardly of nuclear power, we’re sure you could survive in this massive Virginia bunker if you could make your way in.

Each of these options make a fine choice for anyone looking to avoid getting caught up in their own demise. Where would you go to try and survive zombies?

Are Disney VHS’ Making Collectors Rich?

Back in the day, did you happen to have a boatload of old VHS tapes covering all the Disney classics?

As you might imagine, these kinds of classics tend to become quite worthwhile. It happens in all kind of industries; sports cards, trading cards, coins, stamps, CDs, anything you can imagine. And right now, people are going crazy for the retro feel of an old, bulky VHS. As the ‘vinyl’ of TV, VHS cassettes were all the rage until the dawn of CD-capable TV media.

A Trend With Almost Everything

Old tapes, looking back, were a complete pain. They had to be rewound manually, despite their bulky size were as flimsy as they came, and could easily be written over. It wasn’t rare to find people’ favorite movies and cartoons completely written off by a carless Record without changing the VHS!

Disney movies, though, were all the rage; they were absolutely massive at the time. The likes of Aladdin were huge hits, and many editions were made to cash in on the new hype-train. With limited and special editions released of just about every Disney movie, certain people started to find they had these limited copies without even knowing it.

Valuable Beyond Imagination

Now, prepare yourself for this: if you have the specific copy of Beauty and the Beast listed below, you could get around $9,000 for it on eBay from a crazy collector. These are very specifically-detailed styles of the VHS itself. It also has to be in more or less top condition. Don’t start tearing up the attic to find all of your old videos’ just yet!

If the spine of a video reads “The Classics” in a little triangular image, you might just be in luck. These were a very limited style of Disney movie, and some of them can sell for a few hundred dollars. Some might even get you more, of course, like the above. If you have the same Beauty and the Beast with the Human Again song in it, that is worth a lot of money itself.

The one above, you might notice, reads A Walt Disney Classic on the image. That’s even rarer than the simple “The Classics” range and is even more limited. These can be worth the four figures seen above in the right condition and quality.

Other weird ones like the old and banned copy of The Little Mermaid with the ‘old’ cover can net you a lot of money at the same time. Banned and discontinued content certainly up the value too.

Of course it is vital to make sure it’s in top condition, works perfectly well and everything else. It might be worth investing in a VCR if you want to try them out if you have any of the more classic Walt Disney VHS tapes. If you do, you could be in for a nice little financial bonus!

The Outrageous Things Celebrities Spend Their Money On

The lifestyles of the rich and famous mean that they can make way more extreme purchases than us normal people. However, sometimes celebrities spend outrageous amounts on all kinds of things. From private islands to costly wine, you won’t believe what celebrities spend their money on!

After you see these purchases, maybe you won’t feel so badly about your own “frivolous spending,” because, after all, you didn’t buy a solid gold bathtub or a pricy humidifier! Read on to find out exactly who bought what and why.

Let’s begin…

Johnny Depp: $30,000 in Wine

When Johnny Depp sued his former business managers for financial mismanagement, they countersued. That’s when the money dirt came out. In the suit, they alleged that Depp’s inability to keep his spending under control caused his money troubles. Details in the lawsuit revealed that Depp spends $2 million a month, including a jaw-dropping amount on wine.

Documents show that the actor spends $30,000 a month on fine wine and that Depp even flies the wine from France to his movie sets! Even more amazing? He spent $3 million to shoot the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson out of a cannon. Why? We have no idea. But it apparently was worth spending millions to do.

Seven Most Expensive Foods Out There

Pretty much everyone loves food. But while most of us will settle for a delicious (and cheap) plate of greasy french fries, there are some with a more expensive taste. These seven foods are the most expensive of their kind, and while I can’t relate to spending thousands of dollars on a pie, clearly some people could!

A Dreamy Dessert

• $25,000


For some of us, just the thought of dessert is a treat. But for the rich among us, dessert has its own separate standards. This Frozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae costs a whopping $25,000! How can an ice cream be more expensive than a car you ask? Well it contains 28 cocoas, it is decorated in edible gold, and is served in a goblet of gold too.
Don’t forget the 18-karat gold bracelet found at the bottom of the treat as a sweet surprise.

A Pricey Pie

• 14,260


With $870 worth of beef fillet, special Chinese mushrooms that cot $400 a pound and two bottled of vintage wine used for the ingredient, this incredibly rich dish has left all our moths watering.

A Bagel in a Billion

• $1,000


Although half the proceeds go to a scholarship for future culinary students, this bagel still seems quite overpriced. With white truffle cream cheese and goji berry infused Riesling jelly and gold leaf, this one if for the real bagel lovers of the world.

The Perfect Pizza

• $2,400


Orders need to be made a full week in advance for this artwork of a pizza. It is decorated with 100 grams of white truffles and gold leaf. However, the place which sells it, “Margo’s Pizzeria”, donates every penny to charity!

The Haughty Hot Dog

• $145.49


Hot dogs are meant to be the cheap snack you grip on your walk, but not the hot dogs from Capitol Dawg. The list of ingredients that make this dish perfection goes on forever, including French mustard, garlic mayo, sautéed shallots, mixed baby greens, Applewood smoked uncured bacon, Swedish moose cheese, tomato, dried cranberries, pepper and a basil olive oil and cranberry-pear-coconut balsamic vinaigrette.

Black Watermelon

• $6,100


One would think a natural dish like watermelon could only cost so much, but these rare Black Watermelons are only grown in the island of Hokkaido in Japan with a harvest only yielding a dozen fruits a season! Not only is it rare, but it is said the sweetness and crispiness of this watermelon is near to perfection.

Cash for Caviar

• $25,000


Caviar is known to be a pricey delicacy, yet the rarity of the specific Almas Caviar makes this dish even more expensive. To find a store that offers this dish is not a common happening. The only store known to offer this dish is Caviar House & Prunier which is in London. The store packages the caviar a tin made of 24 karat gold.

Pretty much everyone loves food. But while most of us will settle for a delicious (and cheap) plate of greasy french fries, there are some with a more expensive taste. These seven foods are the most expensive of their kind, and while I can’t relate to...

Six Superhero Animals Who Saved Lives

These six animals went far beyond their realm of responsibility, saving the lives of the people around them! From dry land to the ocean, these super hero animals came to the rescue just at the right time.

Dedicated Dolphins

Everyone knows dolphins are the friendliest fish out there, but they prove they are life-savers too! When surfer Todd Endri was trying to catch some waves, Endri himself got caught by a Great White Shark. He was wounded, but just as the shark was about to come back for seconds, a group of dolphins created a wall between the helpless surfer and the Great White, allowing him to swim back to shore!

Mandy the Goat

When 78-year-old Australian farmer Noel Osborne slipped on manure while tending to his farm animals, he found himself in quite a sticky situation. Unable to move with a broken hip, he was stuck for 5 days before anyone found him! Luckily Mandy the goat was there who curled up with him at night for body warmth, and gave him her milk to drink.

“Wonder Cat” Saves the Day

When a water pump malfunctioned, and caused carbon monoxide poisoning, the sleeping Keesling family was in trouble. If they had slept through the night in the poisoned house they would have all died. Thanks to their cat Winnie, that is not the case. Winnie rushed to Kathy Keesling’s bed, woke her up, and gave her just enough time to dial 911.

Man’s Ultimate Best Friend

Khan the Doberman Pinscher proved his worth to his new family just days after he arrived when he saved the life of their toddler. Khan was playing on the floor with little Charlotte when he picked her up by the diaper and moved her to the side. Her mother Catherine was appalled to see the dog seemingly act aggressively, but then she saw the King Brown snake which had just bitten Khan, and which would have bitten Charlotte if he hadn’t moved her. Luckily Khan was able to recover after being given anti-venom treatment.

Lions Save the Day

Although one would think lions are the ones harming people, here they were the saviors. An Ethiopian girl had been kidnapped from her village and was being held hostage and abused by four men. Three lions interfered, chasing the men away. Miraculously, police who arrived on the scene found the girl in total shock, yet she was unharmed by the big cats who had saved her life.

Mama Gorilla

When, in 1906, an overly curious 3-year-old climbed the fence of a gorilla enclosure, fell 18 feet to the surface below, and was rendered unconscious, onlookers thought it was the end. However, Binti the Gorilla who lived in the enclosure cradled the boy and carried him safely to the entrance of the enclosure where he handed him over to EMT’s. all this was done while Binti herself carried her baby on her back. Turns out the maternal nature extends to all species!

You Wont Believe What These Countries Consider Delicacies!

We all have our own personal tastes. Some prefer sushi, and others a juicy piece of steak. But these countries may have taken what they consider delicacies just a little too far. This is a list of the most weird and wonderful dishes from around the world

 

Fried Grasshoppers, Mexico

Oh no, you did not miss-read. Apparently in Mexico there is nothing more delicious than Chapilines, a dish made from fried grasshoppers. Next time you see one hopping outside your window, remember all you need to do is catch them, fry them, and there you go- dinner is ready.

Smalahove, Norway

The ingredients for this dish are just about as weird as the name. Comprised of one ingredient: the fully intact head of a lamb, this delicacy is enjoyed in Norway and is usually kept as a pre-Christmas treat. Yummy.

Balut, South East Asia

The method of making this delicacy is far from ordinary and may leave you with nightmares. Balut, eaten in south east Asia is a developing duck embryo that has been boiled alive and eaten in the shell. Traditionally served with beer- probably to get drunk enough to forget the whole eating experience.

Snake penis wine, Vietnam and Asia

Okay, so it involved a snake, but whether it involves the actual penis of said snake is questionable. This wine, popular in Vietnam and Asia comes with a whole venomous snake in the bottle since snakes are thought to have health properties. Personally, this is one of the only times I would refuse wine point blank.

Arroz de Cabidela, Portugal

Essentially a rabbit or chicken cooked in its own blood and added to rice, water and vinegar. This is not a delicacy for the feint-hearted.

Butod, Malaysia

Incredibly ugly, but apparently incredibly nutritious this ‘butod’ is the name used for the delicacy consisting of sago grub or sago worm. Disclaimer: this wormy wriggly bug is eaten ALIVE.

Blood Tofu, China

What looks like delicious chocolate chunks, is actually fat lumps of pig’s blood. However, in China they are not fussy and will also use sheep, chicken, and even cows blood for this bloody delicacy.

 

Frog Legs, France

The French call it delicious, I call it questionable. But difference of opinion aside, the well-known French delicacy consists of fried frog legs, parsley and garlic source and is said to taste like chicken or fish.

 

Tuna Eyeball, Japan

Although visually unappealing (excuse the pun), this Japanese dish is said not only to be super affordable but super tasty.

Virgin Boy wee eggs, China

And finally, the strangest of the lot. These eggs are cooked in the urine of young boys. Seemingly a tradition, in spring urine of pre-pubescent boys is collected all over China and boiled with the eggs. The eggs can be sold for double the price. And I am left with absolutely nothing to say except I’ll take my eggs pee-free thank you very much.

 

And there you have it- the most bizarre delicacies from across the globe. Bon appetit!
