9 isolated islands for modern … Robinson!

Key features are the difficulty of approach, isolation from the civilized world and the amazing landscapes, beautiful beaches and a natural environment that offers a unique experience to those who love exploring and adventure. Away from the traditional destinations of the Caribbean or the Maldives, there are 9 islands that may be unknown to many and no advertised, but not lacking either in beauty or in hospitality, quite the opposite! In some cases far outweigh the much known images of destinations.

15 May every year: Highlighting the importance of families as basic units of society.

International Day of Families was brought about by the United Nations Programme on the Family and will stress the importance of having healthy and happy relationships with your relatives.

Families are the ‘basic core’ of our society – we are born into them and some of the most important developing years of our lives are spent growing up with our families.

But every family life is different and the UN Family Programme recognises this.  Just as we have lots of different cultures, we also have different ways people interact with each other depending on where they’re from.

Beautiful, Meteora, Greece on Great Atmosphere

The Metéora (Greek: Μετέωρα, lit. “middle of the sky”, “suspended in the air” or “in the heavens above” — etymologically related to “Meteorite”) is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, second only to Mount Athos.

The six monasteries are built on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains, in central Greece. The nearest town is Kalambaka.

Meteora, Greece.

The Theopetra caves 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Meteora had inhabitants fifty millennia ago. The oldest known example of a man-made structure was found within a prehistoric cave in central Greece, according to the Greek culture ministry.

The structure is a stone wall that blocked two-thirds of the entrance to the Theopetra cave near Kalambaka on the north edge of the Thessalian plain. It was constructed 23,000 years ago, probably as a barrier to cold winds. “An optical dating test, known as Optically Stimulated Luminescence, was applied on quartz grains nested within the stones. We dated four different samples from the sediment and soil materials, and all provided identical dates,” Nikolaos Zacharias, director of the laboratory of archaeometry at the University of Peloponnese, told Discovery News.

According to a statement by the ministry of culture, “the dating matches the coldest period of the most recent ice age, indicating that the cavern’s inhabitants built the stone wall to protect themselves from the cold.” Excavated since 1987, the Theopetra cave is well known to palaeontologists as it was used and inhabited continuously from the Palaeolithic period onwards (50,000 to 5,000 years ago).

In the 9th century, an ascetic group of hermit monks moved up to the ancient pinnacles.
They were the first people to inhabit Metéora. They lived in hollows and fissures in the rock towers, some of which reach 1800 ft (550m) above the plain. This great height, combined with the sheerness of the cliff walls, kept away all but the most determined visitors. Initially the hermits led a life of solitude, meeting only on Sundays and special days to worship and pray in a chapel built at the foot of a rock known as Dhoupiani. As early as the 11th century AD hermit monks were believed to be living among the caves and cutouts in the rocks.

The exact date of the establishment of the monasteries is unknown. By the late 11th and early 12th centuries, a rudimentary monastic state had formed called the Skete of Stagoi and was centered around the still-standing church of Theotokos (mother of God).

By the end of the 12th century, an ascetic community had flocked to Metéora.

Until the 17th century, the primary means of conveying goods and people from these eyries was by means of baskets and ropes.Six of the monasteries remain today. Of these six, four were inhabited by men, and two by women. Each monastery has fewer than 10 inhabitants. The monasteries are now tourist attractions.

A large platform-like patterns were placed on the water, forming a “floating” amphitheater for spectators, while the huge screen located between two huge rocks that dominate the region.floating-movie-archipelago-cinema-thailand-great-atmosphere-sea-ocean-beautiful-travel-photography

“I really can not think of a better way to watch a movie than to sink … in one of the most beautiful places in the world, in the middle of a verdant lagoon overlooking the deep blue and starry sky,” says the architect.
