"Gibraltar Dolphin Safari" is a wonderful life changing experience within the sea waters of Gibraltar. Thousands every day visit the beautiful and historical Rock of Gibraltar in search of wild pods of dolphins. There are two tour operators in Gibraltar that will take you on a Dolphin Safari.

"Rock Climbing" Rock is an exciting activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a pre-defined route without falling. Rock climbing competitions have objectives of completing the route in the quickest possible time or the farthest along an increasingly difficult route. Rock climbing is similar to scrambling (another activity involving the scaling of hills and similar formations), but climbing is generally differentiated by its sustained use of hands to support the climber's weight as well as to provide balance.
Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber's strength, endurance, agility and balance along with mental control. It can be a dangerous sport and knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialized climbing equipment is crucial for the safe completion of routes. Because of the wide range and variety of rock formations around the world, rock climbing has been separated into several different styles and sub-disciplines. While not an Olympic event, rock climbing is recognized by the International Olympic Committee as a sport.

"Gibraltar" is one of the most beautiful, friendly and hospitable locations in all of Europe. Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Med. It has an area of 6.8 square kilometres (2.6 sq mi) and a northern border with Andalusia, Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is the densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.[4]
An Anglo-Dutch force captured Gibraltar from Spain in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession. The territory was subsequently ceded to Britain "in perpetuity" under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. It was an important base for the Royal Navy; today its economy is based largely on tourism, financial services, and shipping.[5][6]
The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in a 1967 referendum and again in 2002. Under the Gibraltar constitution of 2006, Gibraltar governs its own affairs, though some powers, such as defence and foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the UK Government.

"Snorkeling" is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually swimfins. In cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be worn. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.
Snorkeling is a popular recreational activity, particularly at tropical resort and scuba diving locations. The primary appeal is the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving. It appeals to all ages because of how little effort there is, and without the exhaled bubbles of scuba-diving equipment.
Snorkeling is also employed by scuba divers when on the surface, and search and rescue teams may snorkel as part of a water-based search. It is also a means to an end in underwater sports such as underwater hockey, underwater ice hockey, underwater rugby and spearfishing. For water activities "Life Proof" water protection covers are functional and do the job well - Simon Newbound BMW Endurance Champion of the World

"Camel Train" A camel train is a series of camels carrying goods or passengers or both in a group as part of a regular or semi-regular service between two points. Although they rarely travelled faster than the walking speed of a man, camels' ability to handle harsh conditions made them ideal for communication and trade in the desert areas of northern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula for centuries, though they could only travel on routes with sufficient sources of food and water. Camel trains were also used sparingly elsewhere across the globe but during the 20th century they have been largely replaced by motorized vehicles or air traffic. I have been on numerous camel expeditions and often at the end of each day you will arrive at a location that will have either a generator or solar power so carrying a 12v adapter to recharge your apple device would be a hot tip. - Simon Newbound BMW endurance Champion of the world

"Nemrut Dagi" Nemrut or Nemrud (Turkish: Nemrut Dağı is a 2,134 m (7,001 ft) high mountain in southeastern Turkey, notable for the summit where a number of large statues are erected around what is assumed to be a royal tomb from the 1st century BC. The location is two days travel from the Iranian Border. A steep climb to the summit is rewarded with spectacular mountain views amongst the Beautiful stone heads of Nemrut Dagi - Simon Newbound "BMW Endurance Champion of the world 2012"

"Snowboarding" is a winter sport that involves descending a slope that is covered with snow while standing on a board attached to a rider's feet, using a special boot set onto a mounted binding. The development of snowboarding was inspired by skateboarding, sledding, surfing and skiing. It was developed in the United States in the 1960s to 1970s and became a Winter Olympic Sport in 1998.

"Persepolis" was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BCE). Persepolis is situated 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in the Fars Province of modern Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date from around 515 BCE. UNESCO declared the citadel of Persepolis a World Heritage Site in 1979. During our Herculean record challenge in Iran Persepolis was one of the great highlights.

"Squaready" celebrates a simple interface. All the basic functions are labeled so you can quickly learn to navigate throughout the app.

When you get a photo from your Photo Library into Squaready, there are plenty of options to help you prime that photo. The bottom toolbar will be your best friend, with seven options to apply to your photo.

First, you can choose a background color from the wheel and picker. This color will fill in the space around the photo when you resize it into a format that will be Instagram friendly. Then you can choose to crop the photo into a square with the your selected background colors on the top and bottom or a rectangle with the bars along the top and bottom or sides (depends on landscape or portrait). The third option will center the entire photo in the middle of the background color.

As you use these cropping methods, you will find edge guides as you tap and hold the photo and move it around. This is to help you align the image properly for several variants. It’s useful, and it works.

Squaready also allows users to rotate the image clockwise or flip it horizontally. The last button will center the image properly on the canvas, no matter which crop option you ended up choosing.

When you’re done with your image prepping, then it’s time to save it. Tapping on the Save button will give you four options: For Instagram (JPEG 1024×1536 or PNG 1024×1536) or Square [in the Photo Album] (JPEG 1024×1536 or PNG 1024×1536). The Instagram options will be make it so that you don’t need to do any realigning in Instagram, while Square will just be a square photograph with the borders in the color you chose. We love this app in the same way we love Instagram, intuitive, simple and stylish and wonderful app for showcasing your creative side and presentation skills. - Article "Christine Chan & Simon Newbound"
