Travelling around the world in a matter of hours is a privilege that many of us have taken for granted over the last few decades, especially considering how cheap it is to travel internationally in relative terms. But current air travel standards take a serious toll on the environment, and it’s important that we begin to look at more sustainable methods of travel that don’t come with such large carbon emissions. To that end, these are some of the eco-friendlier trends that are starting to take over the travel industry, and will hopefully lay a foundation for the future.
For the last 5 decades, most scientists and technicians have been almost solely focused on providing better, more advanced hardware to the world. But hardware is beginning to falter as Moore’s Law breaks down, and more computer scientists are turning to artificial intelligence to make up for this. Artificial intelligence is the next big revolution in computing, and while we haven’t truly begun to feel its influence in everyday life, within the next 10 years, it will become a vital part of our society.
Android 10 has so far proven to be an extremely competent operating system, and while it does mirror many of the features found in iOS, it offers enough of its own features to be a complete OS that should be enough for most users. Android 10 can only be found on a handful of smartphones at the moment, although it’s expected to grow its reach within the next year. But developers have already been hard at work on Android 11, and from what we’ve seen, it’s going to improve and refine many of the features that can be found on 10.
South America, comprised almost entirely of Latin American countries, is among the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with millions of people visiting the continent all the way from Argentina to Brazil. South America, much like Africa, has faced a number of problems in recent years, such as corruption, high crime, violence, and even civil war, but things have died down recently, and most countries are more than perfectly safe to visit. These are some tips to take in mind before packing up and leaving for South America.
Reading can be an escape from the humdrum of our everyday lives, allowing us to escape into the fantastic worlds created by authors like J. R. R. Tolkein, Neil Gaiman, and Stephen R. Donaldson. And some writers base their stories in the real world and give us the chance to flee our own and follow in their characters’ footsteps instead.
Global passenger numbers reached record highs in 2019, with the biggest increases seen in Asia and the Americas. We expect that this trend will continue in 2020, and also that travellers will grow more digitally connected and involved than ever. After all, that’s the way the world is moving! Why should travel be any different?
Acclaimed climate campaigner Greta Thunberg opted to sail to a United Nations conference being held in New York in a zero-emissions yacht rather than to fly there in an effort to highlight the effect that aviation is having on the environment. The 16-year old girl from Sweden has also previously travelled around Europe by train. Meanwhile, the beleaguered Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced harsh criticism because they hopped on a private jet to visit Sir Elton John’s villa in Nice.
There are a lot of different sports around the world that are worth getting involved in. Whether it’s something more conventional like football, or a little more extreme like surfing, there’s just about something for everyone. But there are some sports that are so extreme that they’re only appealing to those with a thirst for real danger. These are sports that come with the inherent risk of death if something goes wrong, and while it may not seem worth it to many, a few select people simply can’t get enough.
