Iceland Tectonic Plate Diving

• January 15, 2013

Iceland is Europe’s westernmost country, and occupies a strategic location in the North Atlantic, straddling the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, on the edge of the Arctic Circle. One of the coldest countries in the world, it is also one of the world’s most volcanically active hotspots. Iceland is known today for its mix of glaciers, bubbly hot springs, rugged fjords and fiery volcanoes.

Iceland can give you a truly unique diving experience you can’t get anywhere else: diving between two tectonic plates, astride the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the fault line where two of the Earth’s tectonic plates are drifting apart. It is not only unique, but it is also exclusive – only few people have dared to try the experience. To get to the diving site, you first have to drive deep into geo-thermal territory and tectonic plate activity. If you’re not yet thrilled enough, you can drive the next day to its glaciers in the south and race snowmobiles.

The country is the most sparsely populated in Europe, with just 283,000 people living in an area the size of England or the US state of Kentucky. Over half of the population lives down in its southwestern corner, around Reykjavik, the small but cosmopolitan capital. The other decent-sized population center is Akureyri, up on the north coast.

What To Expect Of Phone Service In Mexico on your vacation

• March 25, 2013

While you are on your vacation to Mexico, you may need to communicate with friends and family back home. Or, you may have forgotten to relay some important information to a colleague at work. At the very least you may need to speak to a local restaurant over the phone to make reservations or call a golf course to set up a tee time. In any event, knowing what to expect of the phone service you will find in Mexico can be very helpful.

Cabo San Lucas beach, MexicoThe phone in your hotel room may be the most convenient to use, but it is probably best to avoid using it for making long distance telephone calls. Most resorts contract their long distance call service out to a second party long distance company who charges exorbitant prices.

Even making local calls from your room or suite could incur a surcharge from the resort for every call. Your best bet is to use the special pay phones that are located in and around most hotels that will charge about $1 a minute. That may seem a little pricey as well, but it is much better than the alternative.

Make sure that when you check in that you have the person behind the counter explain to you what the local and long distance rates are. That way, if you do decide to use the phone in your room or if you have to use it for an urgent matter, at least you won’t be surprised when you get the bill at check out time.
