The ocean graces more than 70 percent of our planet, and millions of marine species call these waters home. Whether you are a novice or an experienced snorkeler, there are plenty of places to witness enchanting underwater life. All you need is a mask, snorkel, and fins to experience the beauty of coral reefs and the intriguing creatures that thrive beneath the waves. From sharing the sea with manta rays in the Maldives, to humpback whales in the Dominican Republic, and being surrounded by vibrant schools of fish in the Caribbean, these are the best places to go snorkeling in the world.
Komodo National Park, Indonesia
Komodo National Park is centrally located along Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda archipelago, a chain of volcanic islands extending eastward from Java. Established in 1980 to preserve the Komodo Dragon, the Park became a UNESCO World Heritage site six years later. As one of five islands where you can see these unique lizards in the wild, the National Park gets a lot of attention, but the surrounding waters shouldn’t be overlooked. Having enjoyed protected status for more than 30 years, the reefs are thriving with an abundance of exotic undersea life, including dugongs, manta rays, sharks, and over 1000 species of tropical fish.
Devil’s Crown, Galápagos
Devil’s Crown, an extinct sunken volcanic cone near Floreana Island, attracts snorkelers and divers to its underwater kaleidoscope of fish, eagle rays, and shy reef sharks. Located 600 miles west of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean, the Galápagos Islands are heaven on earth for animal lovers. The area’s nickname was derived from the circular formation of jagged lava rocks. Within a few minutes of snorkeling at Devil’s Crown, you will spot a myriad of sea life — including sea turtles and eagle rays gently “flying” above lavender and green-colored coral reefs. If you venture outside the crown, you may even see hammerhead sharks. Just beware — the currents are strong — and be sure you follow an experienced guide.
Grenada, The Caribbean
See the first ever marine sculpture garden at Molinere Sculpture Park in Grenada. This Caribbean island is famous for its spices, lush mountains, and scenic cliffs stretching towards tranquil waters. Just a half-hour boat ride from Pink Gin Beach lies a collection of ecological, subaqueous contemporary art at the sandy bottom of Molinere Bay. These coral-graced cement sculptures, including the famous ring of children holding hands, are teeming with colorful fish and offer a one-of-a-kind underwater experience.
Bay of Donsol, The Philippines
With more than 7,000 islands, choosing the right snorkeling spot is not an easy task in the Philippines. This is especially true when the waters surrounding the archipelago have a diverse ecosystem filled with breathtaking wildlife. At the Bay of Donsol, located in the Sorsogon province in the northern Philippines, you can snorkel alongside the largest living fish — the whale shark. These protected animals congregate in Donsol Bay between November and June, feeding on the rich nutrients coming from the mouth of the river. Snorkelers can see up to 20 whale sharks on a single boat tour.
Baa Atoll, Maldives
The Maldives, located southwest of India, are some of the most picturesque islands in the world, and their beauty is not just relegated to the land. The 1,200 picture-perfect coral islands are surrounded by aquamarine waters, home to hundreds of vivid fish species and other marine animals, including sharks, octopii, and manta rays. Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, is one of the Maldives’ 26 geographical atolls. It supports one of the largest groups of coral reefs in the Indian Ocean, and hundreds of manta rays gather to take advantage of the zooplankton trapped in the bays from June to November.
Madang, Papua New Guinea
The tropical nation of Papua New Guinea is located north of Australia in the Coral Triangle, also known as the Amazon of the ocean. Papua New Guinea and its offshore islands evoke a sense of wonder, just by the very nature of their remote location. The nation boasts more than 700 tribes and it’s equally diverse beneath the seas. Because Papua New Guinea doesn’t suffer from overtourism, the reefs have remained pristine and plentiful. Just offshore from Madang is the volcanic seamount Planet Rock, whirling with barracuda, tuna, snapper, and reef sharks. If you are into diving, there are also some WWII wrecks nearby to explore.
Maui, Hawaii, United States
The lush island of Maui has unique lava rocks and coves that make for a one-of-a-kind experience. You can either snorkel off the island’s beaches or venture out to popular reefs to see technicolor fish, sea turtles, and coral formations. A stone’s throw away from the Four Seasons Resort Maui is the Ahihi Kinau Natural Area Reserve, a perfect place for beginners to enjoy undersea life. The Molokini Crater, a half-sunken, crescent-shaped caldera a few miles from Maui’s shores, boasts calm waters with visibility up to 100 feet. Here, you can come face-to-face with rainbow fish, eagle rays, monk seals, and sea turtles inside the arms of the crater.
Silver Bank, Dominican Republic
If you’ve ever dreamed of snorkeling alongside humpback whales, Silver Bank, in the Caribbean Sea, 80 miles north of the Dominican Republic, is the place to be. Go between December and April, when these charismatic megafauna migrate to the warm, shallow waters of Silver Bank’s submerged limestone plateau to mate, calve, and raise their young. This Marine Mammal Sanctuary is one of only three places in the world that allows visitors to swim and snorkel among the North Atlantic humpback whales.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Crystal clear waters, pure-white sand beaches, and plenty of opportunities to get up close to stingrays right from your overwater bungalows await in Bora Bora. These “water puppies,” as they are often called, inhabit the warm waters surrounding Bora Bora and neighboring islands. They have an affinity for humans, often coming right up to you for attention. Be careful not to swim directly over them or step on their long tails. And if you’ve ever wanted to get close to sharks, these sunlit, shallow tropical waters are abundant with blacktip reef and lemon sharks, along with an array of turtles and colorful reef fish.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
For brilliant marine life and eye-popping coral, there’s nowhere better than the Great Barrier Reef. As the planet’s largest reef system, the Great Barrier Reef is made up of 2,900 individual reefs and coral cays stretching 1,400 miles off the Queensland shoreline. More than a thousand fish species, along with six species of sea turtles, inhabit the reef. Warming waters are causing the coral to bleach, and scientists predict that the reef could become extinct as soon as 2050. So, take in the unmatched beauty of the Great Barrier Reef before it’s too late. The best way to experience this year-round destination is on a boat tour to various spots from your basecamp in Cairns or Port Douglas.
Top 10 Weird Laws Around the World
Parliaments famous Salmon Act of 1986 states that it’s illegal to hold salmon under suspicious circumstances
Section 32 of the Salmon Act 1986 stipulates that it is an offence to handle salmon under suspicious circumstances.
This section creates an offence in England and Wales for any person who receives or disposes of any salmon in circumstances where they believe or could reasonably believe that the salmon has been illegally fished. The maximum penalty is two years imprisonment.
The context may well make the law less weird, but even so, suspiciously holding salmon is a pretty funny offence to be arrested for.
If you own any chickens in Quitman, Georgia, it is illegal to let them cross the road
Simply put, the law essentially wants owners to have their chickens under control at all times. This makes sense when you imagine the danger of letting farm animals run about, but the specificity of the law about not allowing chickens to cross the road rings true to the joke and makes for a funny read.
Georgia likes to ensure the safety and sacredness of their chicken as in Gainesville Georgia, you have to eat fried chicken with your bare hands. Keep your forks away from them. The law describes chicken as a “culinary delicacy sacred to its municipality.” Perhaps this is why chicken deserves a specific transport safety law.
Australia’s second most populated state says it illegal to change a light bulb unless you are a licensed electrician
Under Victorian law, changing a light bulb without a valid license to do so was against the law. Taking your light into your own hands brought a fine of 10 Australian dollars.
However, a revision to the 1998 Electricity Safety Act updated this law. A spokeswoman for Energy Safe Victoria said that, “While the Electricity Safety Act makes it illegal to do your own electrical work if you are not licensed, changing a light bulb and removing a plug from a socket were specifically exempted from this requirement under Order in Council G17.”
Milan in Italy states that it is a legal requirement to smile at all times except at funerals or hospitals
What’s with the long face? In Milan, the law compels you to smile. It is prescribed by a city regulation from Austro-Hungarian times that was never repealed.
Exemptions included funeral goers, hospital workers or those at the bedside of an ill family member. For everybody else there is no excuse for being glum, the alternative being a fine. This has got to be one of the weirdest laws of all.
In Florida, it is illegal to pass wind in a public place after 6pm on Thursdays
There is some debate over this one. It certainly is a forgotten law and has never really been enforced in Florida.
It was probably written in the 1800’s and forgotten since. It is not clear why this ever became a law, or a rumoured law in the first place.
It is against the law to have a sleeping donkey in your bathtub after 7 pm
In Arizona, this law was brought into effect due to a public menace case in 1924. A merchant used to allow his donkey to sleep in a bathtub. The town was flooded when a local dam broke and the donkey, was washed a mile down the valley. The donkey survived, but locals spent a lot of time and manpower to save the animal. This law was passed shortly after.
It is against the law not to walk your dog at least three times a day in Turin, Italy
Dog owners in Turin, Italy will be fined up to 500 euros if they don’t walk their pets at least three times a day, under a new law from the city’s council. Italy considers itself an animal-loving nation and in many cities stray cats and protected by law.
To enforce the law, Turin police would rely largely on the help of tipsters spotting cruel treatment by neighbours. Turin has the most stringent animal protection rules in the country. They even ban fairgrounds from giving away goldfish in bags.
In Scotland, if someone knocks on your door and requires the use of your toilet, you must let them enter
Yes, this means that by law if you need the toilet you can suggest it is illegal for them to deny you the use of their toilet.
However, this law is questionable as how can we suggest people should let just anyone into their home? This law has made many lists of the most absurd laws, but I could not find any context behind this peculiar law.
In Samoa, it is illegal to forget your wife’s birthday
You will get more than the silent treatment from your wife if you forget her birthday in Samoa. It is unclear how long your sentence would be, but maybe some time apart for you to think about how to make it up to her wouldn’t be too bad.
The French town of Sarpourenx makes it a legal requirement to have bought a burial plot before dying
Some issues were had in this French town with people wantonly dying and then expecting to be buried. The mayor issued an edict forbidding people from dying within the city limits unless they had previously purchased a plot in a local cemetery. People who die anyway will be severely punished. What kind of punishment you give the dead however is as of yet unclear.
Top 10 Dangerous Countries
The Institute for Economics and Peace publishes its Global Peace Index study annually. This is the only report of its type that assesses how dangerous or safe a country is based on 23 distinct indices, such as political terrorism inner war fatalities, and the murder rate. The 10 most hazardous countries on the planet are listed below.
According to the Global Peace Index, Afghanistan is the most hazardous country in the world, as it is subjected to fatal Taliban attacks. It has the highest number of casualties from war and terrorism of any country, with 3,804 civilians killed in the conflict, 927 of whom are children, according to the UN peacekeeping operation in Afghanistan.
The Middle Eastern country, which was ranked first until a previous year has been engulfed in civil war since March 2011. It has been dubbed the second-deadliest war of the twenty-first century, with an estimated 470,000 people killed, including 55,000 children.
South Sudan is among the earth’s most hazardous countries. It is rife with warfare, civic upheaval, and deadly violence Outside of the country’s capital, Juba, armed combat occurs primarily between the government and rebel organizations, with little to no system of law or authority. Particularly perilous are areas near South Sudan’s borders. Furthermore, South Sudan is vulnerable to climate change.
As per the United Nations, Yemen’s civil war began in 2015, and the nation is currently experiencing the world’s greatest humanitarian disaster. 4.3 million people have been displaced as a result of the violence, and 14 million persons are at risk of famine and disease outbreaks.
Iraq is one of the most dangerous countries on the planet. It is still beset by internal and external conflicts. ISIS continues to kidnap and kill Iraqi civilians and military personnel. Other human rights breaches, such as infringement of the right to peaceful assembly, have continued. U.S. citizens visiting Iraq are particularly vulnerable to violence and kidnapping and are frequently targeted by anti-US sectarian militias.
Somalia is one of the world’s most unsafe countries. It has a high danger of kidnapping in all sections of the country. Terrorists are likely to target airports, government buildings, hotels, and restaurants. Foreigners, government officials, and UN personnel are frequent targets of these attacks. Droughts and food crises in Somalia have exacerbated an already volatile environment, and ineffective police forces are hampering the security.
Libya is also the world’s most deadly nation. It has seen a rise in crime, civil instability, armed warfare, and terrorism. Militias continue to conflict in Libya over territory and resources, which is largely to blame for the violence. ISIS has carried out several strikes that have resulted in the deaths of both citizens and personnel of the security forces.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is another dangerous country in the world. According to the WHO, the DRC recently suffered an Ebola outbreak that claimed over 2,200 lives. Demonstrations are frequent in cities across the country, and they may quickly turn violent. Violent crimes, such as armed home invasion robberies and assault, are also widespread, and authorities lack the capabilities to adequately react to crime.
The central African Republic
The central African Republic is the world’s other hazardous country. Despite a peace accord inked in 2017, the country’s turmoil has continued to fester and expand. The primary cause of turmoil in the Central African Republic is the conflict between the Seleka rebels and the Anti-Balaka militia. The violence has displaced 620000 people inside and resulted in 570000 refugees fleeing to neighboring countries.
Russia is the world’s second most hazardous country. Its significant militarization, combined with one of the highest per-capita rates of weapons exports, adds to its ranking on the list. It is vulnerable to global and local terrorist organizations, as well as people inspired by extremist ideas. Russian officials have also unlawfully detained American citizens who may face persecution.
Top 10 Strange Household Items
You spend a lot of time at home. Between the Netflix binge-watching sessions, dinner parties, and mornings you sleep through your alarm clock, you’re always using products that make life at home even better. Hoping to discover some products that improve my own home life, I came across some pretty strange but smart household items that are so brilliant, you’ll wish you thought of them first.
So, now I have a list of the top 10 strange and useful items that will help you to do better with your house.
An organized cutting board
If you love to cook but hate the prep (because it takes forever to clean up), you should pick up this cutting board. It’s made out of bamboo and features two removable sliding drawers on each side. Use one side to keep your freshly chopped food, and the other to keep the scraps. That way, you can clean up quickly, cook faster, and enjoy your meal sooner. You can even use the drawers to store extra fruits or veggies if you chopped too many.
This butter knife is a super useful tool that you must have in your kitchen. We often use butter in so many things and cutting it smoothly is a nightmare. So this butter knife (specially made for cutting butter blocks) makes that job so easier. It uses your body to conduct heat with a copper-heat transfer core (that means no batteries or cords). The serrated edge helps you to effortlessly cut the butter, and you’ll be left with the best piece of toast you’ve ever had.
How many power cords do you have? I have quite a few, and they are always falling behind my desk. If you’re like me and you’re constantly having to reach for your cords every time you unplug something, you should find a way to keep them in one place. This desktop grip is a great option for that because it’s weighted and can hold several cords (it has five rubber grips and four slots). You can fit several cables in each slot, but because you stack them, they don’t get tangled.
Multifunctional breakfast maker
I’m all about efficiency. That’s why I’m always looking for multifunctional products. And this 3-in-1 breakfast maker is that. You can make four cups of coffee, toast some bread (four pieces at a time) or muffins, and fry eggs or bacon with one appliance. You can do all of that because the coffee maker is also a toaster oven and griddle. You can make all your breakfast recipes in this easy-to-use machine. It comes in black, red, white, and blue.
This tiny little projector is a great investment. It comes with the proper connector cables to work with your phone, laptop, tablet, and gaming console. It works with HDMI-compatible devices and has 90-minute battery life. You can use it with mobile adapters to watch your favorite shows anytime anywhere. It just makes streaming videos that much better when you can watch it on a display that stretches up to 120 inches.
Fence window for pets
Dogs are really smart animals. They often get super curious, and that can often lead to them running after something or excessive barking. This little fence window is a great way to help your dog get a look at the world around them without them jumping over fences or running away. Just make sure to ask your neighbor if it’s okay to install first.
If you’re interested in ecosystems and want a pet fish, then this is the fishbowl for you. The tank is a closed-loop ecosystem as the plants naturally filter and clean the water, and the betta fish waste fertilizes the plants. The kit comes with everything you need to get started (including a coupon for your betta fish).
Pop-up hot dog toaster
A toaster that cooks two hot dogs and toasts two buns at the same time seems like a dream to me. But, it’s possible. If you love hot dogs, but you aren’t a fan of boiling them, and you don’t like to turn the grill on frequently, then this toaster is for you. It has an adjustable cooking timer and a stop cooking button, and it comes with tiny tongs to remove your hot dogs safely. It’s also super easy to clean, as it comes with a drip tray.
I never understand when people sweep their floors with a dirty broom. Sure, brooms are great for getting dust and hair off your floors, but so much stuff gets trapped in between the bristles and just stays there. This broom and dustpan set solves that problem because each time you sweep, you can clean out the bristles. The dustpan has teeth connected to it, which helps get rid of the dust and hair that gets trapped on the edges of your broom.
Phone and key holder
If you’re always misplacing important things like your phone or keys, a great solution is a wall hook. This one is great because the bottom is magnetic, so your keys will stay put. It also has a shelf where you can leave your phone, sunglasses, or wallet, so you know where to find them when it’s time to leave the house again. One user said, “I was constantly forgetting my work keys and/or wallet when leaving the house and this tiny shelf was the perfect way to keep track of them.”
So that it is for the top 10 essential household items that you must think of getting yourself.
Top 10 Superstitions We Indians Follow Blindly
We in a country where more than half the population literally thrives on baseless superstition. All of us have also been brought you with a set of weird superstitions and most of them simply defy logic. Yet, there are many who refuse to question their rationality and continue to live in blind faith.
Only Indian superstitions will tell you that crow shit is actually good for you. And it gets weirder than this! Here are some superstitions which don’t make sense, but we Indians blindly follow.
Cutting nails and hair on Saturdays brings bad luck
We believe that it’s inauspicious to cut hair and nails on Saturday because it angers planet Saturn (shani), which then brings bad luck. However, ask people who cut their hair and nails on Saturdays, and we bet they’ll tell you their hair looked better and their nails neater, and no planet hovered above them with bad luck.
If a black cat crosses your path, your tasks get delayed
Poor black cats. They are blamed just for being black (no racist joke here). It’s a popular belief in the west too that, if a black cat crosses your path, it’s a bad omen. For the west, the origin of this superstition came from Egypt. Egyptian culture believed that black cats were evil creatures, whereas the Indian explanation is that black represents Shani and therefore brings bad luck. It is said that if a black cat crosses your path, then your day’s tasks get delayed or postponed. Which reminds me, when we were kids and went for our exams, and if a black cat crossed, never once was the exam delayed or postponed.
Omitting the 13th floor from the building.
No explanation for this one, because number 13 is just considered unlucky. Ancient Christianity declared the number thirteen unlucky and therefore till date apartments and hotels skip the thirteenth floor.
Curse of 8.
According to numerology, the number eight is ruled by the planet Shani (again Shani!) and therefore if you’re ruled by the number eight then there shall be lots of obstructions, limitations and frustrations in your way.
Keeping knives under your bed will drive away bad dreams.
An onion and a knife is kept under a newborn child’s bed to drive away bad dreams. It is also believed that placing an onion under your pillow while you sleep will bring you great insight when dreaming about who your future partner in life will be. We suggest all single people try doing this to prove how wrong this belief is!
You lose your wealth, if you shake your legs.
Shaking legs is not just a sign of nervousness. It also drives away your wealth. It is believed that if you shake your legs, prosperity will flow away from you. That explains, why we are so broke at the end of the month right!
You might get baldness after shaking the legs is also another superstition in most of the families.
Sweeping floors in the evening drives away Laxmi from the home.
Even if your room is filthy, your mom will not let you sweep the floor in the evening. That’s because Hindus believe that Goddess Laxmi generally visits homes during the evenings (specifically around 6-7 pm), and therefore sweeping will drive her away. This is, of course, assuming that Goddess Laxmi has a problem with basic hygiene.
Yet there is another issue about sweeping when there was no invention of light. In evening there is too less light and we cannot find any small thing like gold earrings, nose pin,etc at that time, while along with sweeping dirt we will sweep that small thing away and we will lost it unknowingly. That is why we should not sweep our home at night or in the evening. But in today’s ear we have lights then we can find any small thing at any time of the day.
Teen tigada, kaam bigada.
According to the phrase, ‘teen tighada kaam bighada’, anything above two gets difficult to handle. And that a discussion is always better between two people rather than three. However, this was misinterpreted as 3 being unlucky.
It is considered that the right eye twitching is good for men, and the left one brings good news for women. It is commonly seen more in Maharashtra. Ladies use their Mangalsutra to treat on their twitching eyes and they assume that is the best treatment for eye twitching in this modern era of technology, doctors and scientists.
Crow shit brings luck.
We’re not making up shit if we tell you that crow shit is considered lucky. Hindus believe that crow shit brings ‘laabh’ and that money is on the way. If that was the case, then crows would’ve been the best pets no?
Actually crow cannot be a pet yet, like pigeon in all over the world. Still we think and judge ourself in this manners of superstition and blind faiths.

MOUNDSVILLE PENITENTIARY, USA.
During its over 100 years inactivity, the Moundsville Penitentiary in West Virginia was one of America’s most brutal remedial offices and the last stop for just about 1,000 lawbreakers. The detainees lived in squeezed quarters, which prompted riots. Numerous men were hanged or executed in the hot seat, while others were killed by different detainees. The jail shut in 1995, however as indicated by a few, the tormented spirits are as yet in a correctional facility and the insides of the jail and might be seen or heard on a visit.
TRANS-ALLEGHENY LUNATIC ASYLUM, USA.
When known as the Weston State Hospital, this refuge was home to a great many individuals with dysfunctional behavior, beginning in 1864. Many individuals kicked the bucket here before the office shut in 1994. The spirits that are said to frequent the site today date back to the Civil War time, when the haven’s grounds filled in as a troop installation. Paranormal voyages through the office include 2-hour visits to the haven’s 4 principal problem areas. The more serious Ghost Hunt is an 8-hour, short-term paranormal experience with experienced phantom chasing guides.

One notable soul is the functioning young lady Sammie Dean, a prostitute who was choked by a client in the old Crib District. Her wonderful soul wanders the back streets searching for her executioner, who was rarely found.
CUBAN CLUB, USA.
Cuban Club, otherwise called Circulo Cubano de Tampa, can be found in Tampa’s Ybor City area. In 1917, this spot was a famous joint for Cuban settlers who delighted in the assembly hall, open-air bandshell, and saloon with a phase and dance floor. Today, the compound, which is ensured by the National Historic Register, has shows and uncommon occasions and is the setting for some phantom anecdotes about spirits playing the piano and riding the lifts.
FORT MIFFLIN, USA.
Built in 1771, Fort Mifflin is the country’s just Revolutionary War combat zone that is as yet flawless. There are 14 reestablished structures on the grounds on the Delaware River and purportedly a lot of spirits from an earlier time.
