I was recently made aware of a private club in London that was organizing Harry Potter themed dinner events on Fridays and Saturdays in August and September. Apparently they were so popular that they sold out, so the club has added more to fill up the rest of 2017.
The club’s name is The Library, and they are located at 112 St. Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden in Central London.
You can read more about the event here, including an abbreviated menu.
Due to the success of the first Star Trek cruise last year, they are having two consecutive cruises this year!
If you act fast enough (before July 31), you don’t have to pay a deposit or payment until August 15th! The cheapest inside cabins are waitlist only at this time, but there are still some reasonably priced cabins left.
Nestled in Northwestern Germany is a major theme park that had not crossed my radar until recently, when they announced a new roller coaster based on Star Trek. Movie Park Germany‘s name speaks for itself.
Of course I would notice Star Trek. Read more about the ride here.
There are lots of other rides based on other movies (I noticed Dora the Explorer, Ice Age, Indiana Jones, and Walking Dead, among others).
Based on reviews, this theme park would be good for people who like movies and thrill rides. Think Universal Studios, but with more rides.
Visiting Movie Park Germany would be a nice little add-on to your European vacation if you are already visiting Belgium, Netherlands, or Northern Germany (and that area).
This is something that I plan on doing this summer! It’s a light show underground at the LRT’s new Lyon Station, and it opens on July 16, 2017.
The LRT infrastructure project has required significant transformation of Ottawa’s downtown underground.
The excavation of a 2.5 kilometre tunnel has revealed layers of the city’s foundation, exposing sediment dating 150 years back to Confederation. The exposure of these layers has released a flow of electromagnetic energy in the tunnel that was buried for centuries. Until now. It all began with a mysterious appearance at the Lyon station: a glimmering wall of light that can only be described as a glitch in the fabric of reality. The Loop is a fracture of time and space caused by an unprecedented release of electromagnetic energy. Since its appearance, construction workers have begun to witness inexplicable phenomena in and around the tunnel.
Do you live in or near Ontario, Canada? Do you want to see some of the amazing attractions that it has to offer? Don’t pay full price! There are tons of discounts available, and here’s a link to a whole bunch!
There are a few that I will be taking advantage of this summer, and while most of the coupons are for attractions in Toronto, there are a couple of hidden gems!
Are you interested in travelling in Ontario? I can book your car rental, train tickets, and accommodations! You can contact me Jennifer Desmarais through AJ Travel. firstname.lastname@example.org
Personally, I love buying locally, and travelling locally is even better!
I love the idea of this park in Midland, Ontario: Castle Village Enchanted Kingdom! They have a park and trail for the outdoors, and a castle with three escape rooms and many activities inside the building.
Midland is North of Barrie on the shores of Lake Huron. There is a great selection of hotels, motels, and camping accommodations, and lots of cute touristy things to do. Check out Midland’s website for more.
Travel of the future may be closer than we realize, with Elon Musk’s Hyperloop and Daryl Oster’s Tube Travel ET3 concepts.
If they can make these happen, then we would be able to travel to the other side of the world in approximately 3-4 hours, and it would cost ~$50.
Possible problems with Intercontinental Travel
Shifting tectonic plates – even a micrometre could shift these tubes out of alignment, and at the speeds that the “cars” inside would be travelling, the results could be disastrous.
Forces of nature – hurricanes, tsunamis, tornadoes, etc could damage the exterior, and possibly even remove entire sections of the tubing
Is there any other problems that the engineers would have to account for? Leave your answer in the comments!
If these do become our reality, then the possibilities are endless for travel. You would be able to see parts of the world that you didn’t think you’d ever be able to see due to costs or time constraints.
On top of travel benefits, the number of job opportunities for engineers and mechanics would increase. I’m sure the plans would include the need for “tube attendants” during the travel, and security would have to be as strict as at airports, so it wouldn’t be removing jobs from the airline industry.
