10 Most Romantic Ideas for Honeymoon

On your honeymoon, you want the ultimate in romance. You’ve just been married, which we all hope to do only once, and so you really want to make it count. Even if you go on a secondhoneymoon , which many couples do, it still won’t have the magic of that first week or two you and your new husband or wife spend together on your own. Naturally, you’ll want to get it right.

So to help you out, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most romantic ideas I can think of for your honeymoon. If you want add your idea, please do share with us in comment section.
Take dance lessons together

Dancing is always romantic, so why not take the plunge together and spend one evening learning a whole new style? You’ll be able to whip it out and impress all of your friends at future parties in addition to having a very romantic evening on yourhoneymoon.
Canal Ride

Gliding down a canal, exploring parts of a city other tourists never manage, is quite a romantic experience, particularly if you can acquire a private boat with just the two of you and the person sailing the boat. Any city which has a canal system would do. Venice is just one example.
Cocktails on the Beach

Sitting virtually alone on the beach with your favorite drinks in hand, particularly at sunset – this is almost the ultimate in romance. Just one reason why it’s best to go to a resort dedicated to avoiding overcrowding.

If you’ve ever wanted to explore an ocean paradise, your honeymoon is the absolute perfect time. If you’re headed to an exclusive destination by the shore or on an island, snorkeling is a necessity. Discovering the vivid sights beneath the water together is certainly romantic.
Wine Tasting

Heading somewhere with vineyards? Even Thailand has some these days, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if your destination did too. The scenery will be gorgeous and you’ll be just slightly tipsy, certain to add a romantic edge to your evening. You’ll also get a fabulous taste of local culture.
Explore an ancient temple together

Plenty of honeymoon destinations have historic landmarks dotting the countryside. Why not take the opportunity to explore an ancient temple together? Investigating the remnants of an ancient civilization is surprisingly romantic and offers great photo opportunities for the honeymoon album.
Twilight Walks along the Beach

Sure, it’s a stereotype, but stereotypes exist for a reason. Walking down a warm, sandy beach as the sun sets is still one of the most romantic things a newly married couple can do together. If yourhoneymoon destination is the beach, consider this. You might even end up walking along the shore more than once.
Picnic on a Private Inlet

If you’re lucky enough to be honeymooning on a small island, it’s very possible that there are private inlets for you to have a quiet picnic together. This is offered on some of the Tahitian islands as well as other places. Delicious food alone together in an island paradise sounds wonderfully romantic to me.
Swimming in Your Private Pool

The most exclusive honeymoon destinations, particularly luxury resorts, often have a small private pool for their highest paying guests. If you’re willing to spend quite a bit on yourhoneymoon , this is an incredibly romantic way to spend your days and evenings. If you don’t have a pool, spend that time in your hot tub or private bath instead.
Private Candlelit Dinner

My number one in romance is a private candlelit dinner with your new spouse. Catered exactly to your specifications by your own private chef, you can then be left totally alone to enjoy your romantic meal in peace. Feeding each other all of your favorite foods in flickering soft light? This is just unbelievably romantic, and absolutely perfect for yourhoneymoon.

10 Most Famous Dance Styles in the World

Dance is the only art of which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made. The truest expression of a people is in its dance and in its music because bodies never lie. Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays.

All my followers on twitter and Facebook know how much I want to dance right now. A friend threw an idea why not write a post on a thing which you love doing. “DANCE”
So here is the list of some of the most famous dance styles performed all over the world. I may have missed out some so please share you favorite in comment section.
Hip Hop dancing (Popping)

Hip hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip hop music that evolved from the hip hop culture. Hip dance consists primarily of moves executed close to the ground.
Belly Dancing
The term “Belly dance” is a misnomer as every part of the body is involved in the dance. The most featured body part being the hips. It basically originated from Middle East. For me no one does it better than Shakira. J
Salsa is a syncretic dance genre from Cuba. Salsa is normally a partner dance, although there are recognized solo forms.
Ballroom Dancing

Ballroom dance refers to a set of partner dances, which are enjoyed both socially and competitively around the world. Its performance and entertainment aspects are also widely enjoyed on stage, film and television.
Tap dancing
Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by a tapping sound that is created from metal plates that are attached to both the ball and heel of the dancer’s shoe. These metal plates, when tapped against a hard surface, create a percussive sound and as such the dancers are considered to be musicians.
Bhangra is not a dance for me. It is something that we people of sub-continent find life in. The compilation of gestures, colors and moves is just simply phenomenal.
Break Dance
Break-dance incorporates many types of moves that can vary as widely as a breaker’s imagination and athleticism will allow. The inventory of break-dance moves is extensive, and there are competitions throughout the world. The best break dancer that I know was Michael Jackson.
Irish Dance
Irish step dance is a type of performance dance originating in Ireland from traditional Irish dance. It is usually done in groups but when performed as a solo dance, it is generally characterized by a stiff upper body and the quick and precise movements of the feet.
Robot dance
The robot is an illusionary dance style often confused with popping that attempts to imitate a dancing robot or mannequin. It was originated by Charles Washington
Line dancing
A line dance is choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows without regard for the gender of the individuals, all facing the same direction, and executing the steps at the same time.

10 Greatest Guitar Players Ever

When learning another language, experts recommend that you immerse yourself in the language. The same principle applies when learninghow to play guitar. Listening to great guitar players can be a source of inspiration, can encourage you to keep practicing, and give you a goal to work toward.
As I am no expert so this doesn’t mean that this is a definitive list of the greatest guitar players, and some would disagree with the names on the list, it is an excellent starting point. But By listening to these accomplished players, those who are learning to play guitar can find their inspiration.
Jimi Hendrix

Many of his fans claim he was the greatest guitarist ever to pick up the instrument. It was his innovation, and his ability to play his guitar in any position with any body part, that consistently places him as one of the top rated guitarists ever.
Eric Clapton

Clapton can not only brag that he’s considered one of the greatest rock guitarists and one of the greatest blues guitarists, but also that he has drawn huge crowds for his classical guitar concerts. His playing style is smooth, yet precise, and chords almost seem to flow from his fingertips.
Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson set the pace for future generations of blues players. Johnson is also the guitar player often accused of having made the deal at the crossroads, selling his soul to the devil in order to be able to play.
Eddie Van Halen

The lightning speed and innovative sounds of Eddie Van Halen’s guitar are easily recognizable. He was completely self-taught, having never had any type of lesson. It has often been said, that it is easy for Eddie to be creative in his playing techniques because he was never told how he could or could not play.
Stevie Ray Vaughan

Easily one of the most well known modern blues guitarists, Vaughan’s music seemed to be pulled from the depths of his soul at times. While his playing was smooth, it was the sheer amount of emotion in every note that drew people to his music.
Tony Iommi

For many people, Iommi is considered the first real metal guitar player, using a lot of distortion but keeping it completely controlled. His fiery style is even more impressive because his fingering hand is missing the tips of two fingers, requiring him to use rubber prosthetics when playing.
Jeff Beck

Many guitar players consider Jeff Beck to be one of the most well rounded guitarists in the world, able to produce incredible tones with what appears to be very little effort. Despite his ability to create amazing sounds with a great depth of feeling, he is rarely given the credit he deserves.
Jimmy Page

Sony Unveils Flexible OLED Thinner than Hair

Flexible gadgets are undeniably sexy – but Japanese electronics giant Sony wasn’t content stopping there. For their newest display, they decided to also throw in ultra-thinness (just 80?m or a bit thinner than a human hair) and the energy-saving power of OLEDs into the mix. The new prototype is so bendy that it can be wrapped around a pencil. From electronic newspapers to LED garments, just think about the applications such a display could be used for!

The new prototype is a huge step up from their last iteration, which Gizmodo reported to be only slightly bendy. According to PCWorld, the new screen contains innovative organic thin-film transistors that are used to make the driver circuitry to run the display. These transistors are capable of being produced directly on a flexible substrate, eliminating the need for rigid driver chips that would prevent the screen from being bent.

The new OLED display measures 4.1-inches wide with a contrast ratio of under 1,000:1 and a resolution of 432 x 240. And this is crazy – Sony says that this new OLED panel can continue streaming video while rolled up or stretched!
