Covent Garden is nestled at West End in Central London with a history dating back to the 17th century. It was in 1630s that the 4th Earl of Bedford commissioned the British architect Inigo Jones to design and build a residential square in the West Minster Abbey’s Convent Garden. Inspired by his travels to Italy, Jones designed the very first public square of England, the Covent Garden’s piazza.
Inigo Jones introduced innovative town planning features to the English community such as the Palladian architecture for buildings and well organized straight streets. In fact Covent Garden still retains much of its original streets and names unchanged to date.
As time passed Covent Garden was occupied as a fruit and vegetable market. Following the pineapple boom in 1650s, artists and craftsmen adapted pineapple motif into their creative works. As a reminiscent of the olden times, each hanging lantern at the arcade is capped by a golden colour pineapple. Between 19th and 20th century the square was renowned as the main fruit and vegetable market in London which occupied more than 1000 porters. Presently Covent Garden has become a major venue for entertainment, food and shopping recording over 40 million visitors a year.
Covent Garden piazza is a large building with glass roofing, sheltering several arcades. These arcades nestle chic cafes and boutiques in addition to the Apple Market and Jubilee Hall Market showcasing an alluring array of arts and crafts, clothing, jewellery and souvenirs. As the only area licensed for street performing in London, Covent Garden’s open piazza is a concentration of talented performers from across the globe. Visitors are entertained with live shows of musicians, mime artists, magicians and jugglers among many others...

The-Caribbean-IslandsThe Caribbean islands are everything that postcards present them to be and much more. Do not limit yourself to just the picturesque white beaches and majestic blue skies – to experience the true colors of the Caribbean, you should visit its side streets, too. Here is a rundown of interesting things to do on your trip.
Caribbean hotels and resorts are usually fully booked during peak season, so it is advisable to take care of your accommodations at least three months in advance. If you want more privacy, visit the less popular islands that offer the same first-rate accommodations. It’s not a good idea to visit the Caribbean from April to December, though, as these are hurricane months. If you still want to go during this period, always check for weather updates.
Don’t limit yourself to the beaches – if you have time to spend, you should also include a tour of the Caribbean rainforests and the interesting key cities in your trip. Some ideas: If you find yourself in the Dominican Republic, don’t miss the grand waterfalls, the majestic volcanic zeniths and boiling lakes, and, of course, their world-famous forest preserves!
The independent island nation of Barbados boasts one of the highest standards of living in the developing world. It is a place with many great resorts and tourist attractions, such as the unique Atlantis Submarine diving trip. There are also snorkeling expeditions that feature visits to shipwrecks and swimming with turtles. If you really love turtles, you can see more at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, where you will see many large specimens, as well as many other types of animal and plant life...
