These islands are blessed with exotic beauty of turquoise blue waters and sandy beaches. The temperature is perfect throughout the year at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. What else one can look forward to are the bewitchingly beautiful beach villas with the best of amenities ranging from food to entertainment.

The next outstanding destination can be Europe. The place has the best of everything and foe everyone. Besides a rich historical past, this wealthy destination has all sorts of scenic splendors. There are spectacular slopes of Scandinavia, the humid Mediterranean and the peninsulas to steal your attention.

How can one forget the incredible South Pacific or Oceania as a luxury destination…the place has a bunch of marvelous islands like New Zealand, Australia, Micronesia etc. that make you a prisoner of their lust. The place has fascinating lagoons and lively beaches to enjoy all types of water sports and other activities for instance spinner dolphins, humpback whales and the like.

The Means to Commute
After you select the ideal place for your journey, think about the way to reach there. Several options are available of which private jets and helicopters top the list. These private air modes have lots of benefits and convenience. Their services are available round the clock. All you have to do is to call up a private jet or airways company and ask for a jet or plane. These jets not only take least time to reach the desired destination but provide you with privacy, peace of mind, no hassle of booking etc., luggage safety, all in all a perfect journey.

If you desire to sail then cruise ships are the perfect option. Silver sea Cruise Ships are a good and wise choice. They offer you the best of rooms, restaurants, entertainment like casinos etc. So there is much more to enjoy along with the oceanic magnificence.

Yacht is also a favorable option for the sea admirers. Besides accommodation there is accurate planning for all other requirements. The most renowned luxury yacht so far is known to be Sea Dream II.

The accommodation, food and entertainment
Go for the best of hotels or resorts available. Make sure they have entire set up to take care of not just your lodging but food and entertainment (casinos, bars etc.). Health spas, gyms, parlors and the like add one more feather to it.

New Zealand travel can be an exciting thing for so many reasons because this country has so much beauty and so many different things to offer visitors. There are multiple ways to approach your New Zealand travel, but guided tours are always a good way to experience the wonder of the country. New Zealand has a lot of history and culture, so it is nice to be able to explore with the natives and really learn about what makes their home so special and unique. Some of the best things about New Zealand is its incredibly unique wildlife that inhabits all of the land. Some of the animals that have inhabited New Zealand at one point or another are unusual reptiles, hundreds of different exotic birds, a wide array of bats, tropical frogs and the ever famous geckos. Many of these animals and reptiles have become extinct over the years, but there is still one very important animal that you must experience at some point during your New Zealand travel.

The most famous resident in all of New Zealand is the Kiwi bird. Kiwi birds are indigenous to this area, but are quickly becoming an extinct species. This makes it even more important that you be sure to see this incredible species of bird while in New Zealand. The Kiwi bird is unable to defend itself against other predators, so this has made it very difficult to keep them from becoming extinct. There are three different types of the Kiwi bird and each one is distinguishable by its coloring and the curve of its bill. Natives to New Zealand are very attached to the Kiwi bird and it has become the official bird of the country as well as an important icon of the entire nation.

There are three major types of the Kiwi bird: the Great Spotted Kiwi, the Little Spotted Kiwi and the Okarto Brown Kiwi. The Great Spotted Kiwi is sometimes referred to as the Roroa species and is the largest of all the Kiwi birds. The Little Spotted Kiwi is extremely small and is unable to defend itself against any type of predator that may come their way. The Okarto Brown Kiwi is also known as the Rowi; they are very small and only take up a very small area on the South Island of New Zealand. The wildlife in New Zealand is unlike anything else you have experienced and it is definitely something that should be included in your New Zealand travel.

Mention Easter Island and most people immediately think of the enigmatic giant stone faces placed along the coastline that stare stoically, either out to sea or inland at the inhabitants. Being part of the Polynesian triangle in the Pacific there are many myths and legends attached to this remote and mysterious island, with many of the ‘facts’ being barely indistinguishable from fanciful conjecture.

However, what is indisputable is that the island has witnessed trauma and tribulation in almost equal measures over the last few centuries; including overcoming the threat of human extinction more than once. The local population have survived epidemics, famines, civil wars, slavery, hostile occupation and the near-collapse of their ecosystem, but are now thriving by promoting their incredible heritage and history to inquisitive visitors from all over the world.

In addition, the natural beauty of the island also provides stunning white sand beaches suitable for snorkelling and scuba diving, fishing and even surfing. An incredible caves network near Ana Kakenga – that was naturally created through the volcanic rock from which the island is derived – proves a big draw for many visitors. There are also opportunities to partake in horseback riding or bicycling, and to visit plenty of local crafts shops selling fantastic wood carvings.

Undeniably, the big attraction for most visitors to Easter Island is the giant heads – the vast majority of these remarkable monoliths are carved from compacted volcanic ash. Known as moai, they are dotted all over Easter Island and are actually enlarged heads attached to tiny torsos, with the latter regularly buried leaving only the face visible. Almost all the 887 moai were toppled during tribal wars in the 18th and 19th centuries and it wasn’t until the 1950s that a concerted effort to stand them upright began, following extensive excavations by explorer Thor Heyerdahl.

There is much to see relating to the moai, starting with the quarry where they were all extracted and carved at Rano Raraku. Here is clear evidence of the tools used to carve the heads – simple stone chisels – and also a vast number of moai that never left the quarry. In fact, only one quarter of those carved ever made it to installation and it is estimated that it took six men a year to carve each monument.

Discovered and named on Easter Sunday 1722 – by Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen – Easter Island is a territory of Chile, even though it is situated some 2,300 miles west of South America. The most remote inhabited island in the world measuring a mere 15 by 10 miles, its nearest neighbour – a mere 1,260 miles away – is the even smaller inhabited island of Pitcairn. And because it is so remote, there is no other viable option but to take flights to Easter Island if you wish to visit this remarkable island.

And, if you do wish to travel to Easter Island then make sure that you allow enough time to see everything, as despite its small size the island is literally stuffed with attractions.

Getting the greatest savings on UK flights is easy if you are flexible and take a little time to research before you make plans. By following a few simple tips, you travel costs will be significantly reduced.

Most people like to plan their holiday right down to the number of socks they will take. However, if you are really serious about saving money on your flight and holiday, you will need to loosen up a bit and be flexible. The key to saving money on holiday is to be flexible. If you can hold off on committing to an exact departure and return date, you will be able to take advantage of the last minute deals that most airlines offer.

Many people find that there are significant savings to be gained when they are flexible on the hours that they depart. Getting the savings will mean that you will need to depart at an hour when very few other people travel, but will be well worth the extra effort you make. In most cases, it will be necessary to spend the night prior to your flight at the airport hotel so this will be a cost to include in your total flight cost calculation.

If you are going to be staying at your destination for several days, mailing your luggage to your destination will be less expensive than paying the check-in fee for your luggage. In addition, you will be able to pack the items that airlines do not allow on planes. You will have your own shampoo, toothpaste, razor, and other items that you would have to buy if you paid to check your bags in for your flight.

If you don’t mind airports and stop-overs, you can often save on your flight by just taking bargain flights to another airport where there is a bargain flight to your location. This means that you will need to do some research for your vacation and check with several airlines to find out the cheapest rates and route to get you to your destination.

Saving money on holiday flights can also be accomplished by either making reservations at least 21-days before the flight, or grabbing a bargain flight when the airline offers it. If you have your heart set on a destination, then the advance ticket purchase will be a good idea. However, greater savings will be found when you get the bargain flight and enjoy the adventure of going to a new destination that you have never thought of visiting.

There are some times when holiday travel is very expensive. Peak tourist season is the most expensive time to visit any destination.

Checking your destination to find out when their tourist season is, then making your flight and accommodation arrangements for right before or after the season will give you all of the benefits of the peak season without the prices. School holidays are also very expensive. For instance, when traveling to Florida during April, you will find that prices are the highest of any time during the year. This is Spring break for colleges and Florida is a favorite holiday location for students. By visiting in March or May, you will have all of the benefits of Spring without spending the money that it would cost in April.

By taking some time to research your destination and checking costs of multiple airlines, you will be able to get the greatest savings on your UK flights. The costs of a holiday are greatly reduced when a person is flexible and is willing to adapt.

There are different ways that an individual can get great savings on UK flights including Flights to American Samoa. We’ve got the inside info on how to get the best flight!

The American Department of State issues an annual report on the state of human rights in each country that is a member of the United Nations. Although these country reports acknowledge the cultural diversity of each country, the basic principle underlying them is in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. First the study focused only on the countries that were receiving assistance from the United States. Later on it was developed to cover all the UN member countries.

Since the reports contain qualitative information only, they cannot be directly used for the purposes of the Global Democracy Award. However, they are a uniquely rich source of information on exactly those matters that, as we argued above, should be most relevant for this project. With some investments of additional labor, the information contained in the reports could be subjected to a content analysis and thus yield quantitative information that can usefully supplement and precise the much rougher information provided by the Freedom House scores. We estimate that, depending on the depth and aspired to standards of the content analysis, this extra labor amount to anywhere between 100 and 600 hours of skilled labor for the coding of approximately 200 countries for a particular year. The required qualification is approximately that of a social science post-graduate student. The investment of additional labor could help countering the charge that the quantitative data gained this way simply reflects the opinion of the US administration. To further dissipate such charges, similar reports by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International can be used as checks and/or additional pieces of information on the same issues.

Using their raw material it may be possible to develop a set of indicators, each measured on a rather simple scale, perhaps as mere presence or absence of particular kinds of events, or perhaps operationalized by 0 (absent), 0.5 (somewhat present) and 1 (present). Since the country reports are not conducted by a single methodology and have different focus for different categories of countries, a more sensitive scale could be problematic, mainly because they register only present violations and rarely talk about improvements. Also, if something like extrajudicial execution, disappearances or torture exist then the number of victims is not so relevant for the state of democracy as the fact that those things do happen. The issue that can be important is whether those events are part of the system, whether they are policy instruments in some way and sanctioned by the government, or whether they are consequence of the unaccountable actions of individual government officials or agencies, and consequence of the lack of control over them. This could be distinction between 1 and 0.5. Maybe a higher score can also be added to indicate particularly frequent and big events that signify significant deterioration in conditions.

A similar content analysis was already carried out for 1980-1987 by Poe and Tate (1994), and the data set was later updated to include the years between 1988 and 1993. Two coders independently coded the State Department data on five-point scales and their coding showed a high degree of agreement (gamma .98), which suggests that the conversion of the State Department data into quantitative scores can indeed be done fairly reliably. Analyses reported by Poe and Tate (1994) show that the State Department reports tend to paint a somewhat less favorable picture about systems with left-wing governments than the parallel reports by Amnesty International, but it is certainly hard to tell which of the two sources have and exactly what kind of bias in evaluating the human rights record of different regimes.

The methodology of the reports themselves is as follows. Each year, the Secretary of State issues a press release on the state of the human rights in the world. The reports are prepared by each embassy of the United States. The embassies corroborate and gather information on human rights violations, state of democracy and the rights of workers. The sources are from all over the political spectrum including government officials, jurists, armed forces sources, journalists, human rights monitors, academics and labor activists.

The embassy issues a first draft that is sent to Washington and reviewed by the Bureau of Democracy. Human Rights, and Labor, together with the other State Departments corroborate analyze and edit the reports. This information is corroborated with sources from U.S., other human rights groups, foreign government officials, representatives from the United Nations and other international and regional organizations, experts from the media and academia. The principle is to ensure that all relevant information is included and objectively and thoroughly evaluated. That is why consultants on workers issues, military and police, women’s rights issues and legal ones are all taken into consideration.

There are no indexes to evaluate the performance of a country from one year to another. There are mostly descriptions of human rights situation as well as the state of democratic process. There are some guiding issues that are present in each evaluation and provide a basis of comparison between countries from one year to another.

First there is a description of the political institutions and general features of the countries. Then each of the following issues is discussed with explanations, examples and evaluations:

Section 1 Respect for the Integrity of the Person, Including Freedom From:
a. Arbitrary or Unlawful Deprivation of Life – includes murder with the government involvement, killing by police forces or unintended killings made by police without due process of law.

b. Disappearance: this section covers cases where there is a political reason in which victims and perpetrators have not been found.

c. Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment – this section takes into account physical, mental pain caused with intent. It also covers prison conditions.

d. Arbitrary Arrest, Detention, or Exile: covers situations when detainees are held by police without being charged or there is no public hearing before being charged.

e. Denial of Fair Public Trial – describes the judicial system and assesses the degree of independence the courts enjoy. It also takes into account whether trials are public and correct.

f. Arbitrary Interference with Privacy, Family, Home, or Correspondence – covers the right to receive foreign publications and to be free from state coercion like forced abortion and sterilization.

Section 2 covers Respect for Civil Liberties, including:

a. Freedom of Speech and Press – sees whether these freedoms exists and it describes them.

b. Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and Association – evaluates the ability of individuals to exercise these rights.

c. Freedom of Religion – describes the extent of government interference in the right of free worshipping any religious belief.

d. Freedom of Movement Within the Country, Foreign Travel, Emigration and Repatriation – discusses the status of “refugees” and it includes the forced resettlement.

Section 3 covers Respect for Political Rights: The Right of Citizens to Change Their Government – this covers the freedom of political choice and citizens’ ability to affect changing of laws.

Section 4 covers Governmental Attitude Regarding International and Non governmental Investigation of Alleged Violations of Human Rights – discusses whether the state permits free functioning of human rights groups and whether there is any pressure on these groups.

Section 5 covers Discrimination Based on Race, Sex, Religion, Disability, Language, or Social Status, addressing discrimination and abuses existent in regulations and laws and societal violence of women. It has subsections on homosexuals, women and children.

Section 6 covers the state of Worker Rights in the following fields:

a. The Right of Association
b. The Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively
c. Prohibition of Forced or Compulsory Labor
d. Status of Child Labor Practices and Minimum Age for Employment
e. Acceptable Conditions of Work
f. Trafficking in Persons

In each section there is a description of the legal framework as well as events that violated human rights. The report also contains how the legislation changed regarding human rights. It mentions the presence or absence of the legal framework on a human rights issue or human rights violation.

The 1999, 2000 and 2001 reports are currently accessible at the http://www.state.gov/g/drl/hr/c1470.htm address. The main problem is that there is no coding procedure that can be used in quantitative analysis. The reports offer simple descriptions of different human rights violations. To compare one country to another by reading the whole material is a difficult task. Each year 5000 pages of reports are released. The analysis is qualitative and it catches the diversity of each context properly. The data could be used for a fine measurement tool of democratic performance. A major advantage is the predictable and prompt availability of the information: according to US federal law the country reports have to be submitted to Congress by February 25th each year.

The countries covered include the following:
Africa: Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic of the, Congo, Republic of, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Boasting of mind blowing scenery, stupendous mountain peaks, dazzling waterfalls, magnificent valleys filled with aromatic flowers, isolated beaches and islands, incredible lagoons, and turquoise waters, French Polynesia is an overseas nation within the French Republic, and is made up of five archipelagos such as the Society Island, the Austral Island, the Gambier Islands, the Marquesas Islands, and the Tuamotu Island groups.

French Polynesia is better known by the name of its main island, Tahiti, which is in Society Archipelago. Each of the island groups in French Polynesia has its own significance, and is noted for its unique culture as well as ethnicity. Further, all of the 118 islands are much popular among the holidaymakers from across the world.

Most popular among the island groups in French Polynesia is the Society Archipelago, which covers such incredible destinations as Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Huahine, and Tahaa and Raiatea. Crystal-like clear water, breathtaking beaches as well as coral reefs, soaring volcanic peaks, and beautiful waterfalls – all sum up the island of Tahiti, which is not only the most prominent island in Society Group but also in whole of French Polynesia.

Sometimes acknowledged as the ‘Island of Love,’ Tahiti includes two island masses such as Tahiti-Nui and Tahiti-Iti, both of which are connected by an isthmus, namely, the Plateau of Taravao. Further, Tahiti is also home to the capital as well as the bustling port of Papeete, which in turn houses an array of police headquarters, government offices, airline and travel agencies, banks, and telecommunications center.

Al though Tahiti is the main island in French Polynesia, Bora Bora is the most beautiful as well as romantic of all islands in the South Pacific. One of its specialties is brilliant multicolored lagoon, which contains an array of rare as well as beautiful marine species.

The beauty of the island is further enhanced by two majestic mountains that dominate the island, such as, the Mount Otemanu and the Mount Pahia. Bora Bora is also much famed for its mythical and mysterious legends. Hence, it is not a wonder why the island is much sought after among the honeymooners, newly weds, and couples celebrating their anniversaries.

When Tahiti is bestowed with the title ‘The Island of Love,’ and Bora Bora acknowledged as the most beautiful destination on the earth, Moorea is referred to as the magical island, with its jagged volcanic peak, beautiful crystalline lagoons, and isolated small motus. Located just ten miles from Tahiti, Moorea’s focal point is Tiki Village, which is frequented by couples who want to celebrate their marriage or renew their wedding vows in a special way.

When comes to the Huahine, it is popular among the vacationers as the Garden Island. Located about 120 miles north-west of Tahiti, Huahine is easily accessible from Bora Bora, Tahaa, and Raiatea. Other not to miss destinations in Society Archipelago is Tahaa, also known as the Vanilla Island, and Raiatea, otherwise called the Sacred Island.

With more than 75 coral atolls spread across more than 100 miles in the eastern Pacific, Taumotu Islands is made up of such magnificent islands as Rangiroa – the largest atoll in the archipelago; Manihi, noted for its clear lagoon; and Fakarava – a rectangular shaped atoll. Located about 1500 kilometers north-east of Tahiti is the Marquesas Islands, which consists of 12 volcanic islands, of which only six are inhabited. Gambier Archipelago is situated about 1500 kilometers south-east of Tahiti, and is home is to about 14 tiny mountainous islands, among which the largest as well as the most populated is Mangareva. Above all, Austral Islands is located south of Tahiti, and is well-known for its unique art and culture.
