Seven Natural Wonders

Myself, with friends Clare and Nicola at the Grand Canyon in 2009

I stumbled upon this website today about the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Worth a little look as it showcases some incredible information and useful factoids if you’d like to see some of te wonders for yourself. These include inside tips about where to go and stay, as well as photographic tips about where it has been recommended to go in order to get the best shot.

Also, I’d never heard of Paricutin before reading this and it turns out it’s natural wonder number 3 on the list!

There are also several other lists which offer more wonders per continent.

As of right now (3/1/13) I have seen only one of these world wonders with my own eyes, but with a bit of luck after my trip to within the Arctic Circle in three weeks time, I will have added the Aurora Borealis to my list.

Next stop, Rio 🙂

My New iBike

I want me one of these, I think…

I have in the past been out on bike and using my iPhone to track my route or listen to music (when not on the road) and found the battery life draining away in both my phone and my body. This could potentially be a genius invention, or an incredibly dorky one. It’s such a simple concept, I can’t fathom why no one has thought of it before – using your pedal power to charge your iPhone. I like the design too. A little off-the-wall but stylish and functional. The indicators are a good idea and I’m glad they’re integrated as I find them being used less frequently by cars these days*

All in all, a great concept and I look forward to innovation like this being developed further in the near future.

*What is with newfangled cars and their lack of indicator functions? I have nearly been mown down four times this week by lazy ass drivers who can’t be bothered to adhere to the rules of the road and use their blinking (see what I did there?) indicators when turning a corner. It’s a simple flick of the wrist! Why I oughta!!! I will be using a simple flick of my wrist if I get to driver number 5, I tells ya! USE YOUR FREEKING INDICATORS!
