For those of us who love spending time on the water http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-marian-gaborik-jersey , houseboats really are the perfect solution, not only for living, but for vacationing as well. All over the world, you can find houseboats to rent that offer every comfort of a hotel, with the added bonus of ever changing scenery and your choice of where to go next.
Perhaps the most well-known option is renting a barge in France, slowly meandering your way along the Canal du Midi while getting off the boat every now and then to do some shopping http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-marcel-dionne-jersey , sightseeing and sampling the local cuisine. Lovely, yes, but if you are looking for something a bit more exotic and adventurous, you might want to give one of the destinations below a try.
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is the largest inland delta in the world, featuring many waterways to explore, and an amazing variety of wildlife. Sit on the top deck of your houseboat and watch giraffes http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-luc-robitaille-jersey , elephants, crocodiles, lions, buffalos and an astonishing variety of birds (more than 400 species) as you slowly glide along in the African landscape. There are many houseboats available for rent here, and the best time to go depends on what you are interested in. The dry season (May - October) offers the best wildlife viewing, while the rainy season (Nov - April) is prime time for bird watching and for those more interested in the local vegetation.
Another great area to explore on a houseboat is the wetlands and waterways around Impalila Island http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-kyle-clifford-jersey , 43 miles west of Victoria Falls, where the upper Zambezi and Chobe rivers meet. (This also happens to be the only place in the world where four countries meet: Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe). There are many houseboats available for rent here, with great features such as bedrooms with huge sliding windows that open onto the water (with mosquito nets of course, this is Africa after all) so that you can lie in bed and watch wildlife on the shore or elephants swim across the river. This area is also known for its exceptional bird life and fishing http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-kurtis-macdermid-jersey , and if you visit November - April, you might see as many as 300 different species of birds in just a few days.
Lake Jozini (also known as The Pongolapoort Dam) in South Africa is another spectacular houseboating destination. Jonzini is the third largest lake in South Africa (18.6 by 4.3 miles) and very popular among anglers because of its large, feisty tigerfish population. Bordering the lake are the Lebombo Mountains and the Pongola Game Reserve, providing magnificent scenery and an abundance of wildlife. Winter (May-July), with warm, sunny days and virtually no wind or rain is the best time to visit. Gather a bunch of friends and spend a week in luxury aboard one of the fully crewed Shayamanzi houseboats. Imagine watching hippos and giraffes from the top floor lounge or maybe from one of the Jacuzzis while the chef is preparing dinner. Now that's my kind of safari!

BERLIN http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-kelly-hrudey-jersey , Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- At some stage a World Cup win is no more than just a sweet memory. When the heroes wake up, attention soon turns to the present and future.
After the tournament in Brazil, German coach Joachim Loew went to a remote Italian island to recover, recharge batteries and channel his thoughts so that Germany is prepared for the next phase as World Champions.
First up in the friendly on Wednesday evening is, of all teams, Argentina http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-jonny-brodzinski-jersey , their opponents in the World Cup final, a meaningless re-match between the World-Cup winner and the second, that was done never before in football history right after a World Cup before.
For Loew, it is not a case of preventing Argentina from gaining revenge; it's more one of a long "To Do List" and of improving upon the 2012 European Championship when the team lost to Italy in the semifinals. The new 2016 EURO campaign starts this Sunday with the qualifying match against Scotland.
Loew has rightly found his place in the history books of world football. Some people might even have understood him if he had resigned after reaching the summit.
Loew's reason for continuing is a convincing one, namely that of staying at the top.
Perhaps it is a case of let us have more of the same thing after enjoying such a wonderful success not like in 1990 when German legend Franz Beckenbauer won the football's biggest title and then, wrongly as it turned out http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-jonathan-quick-jersey , predicted that Germany would be world beaters for decades.
Loew is looking to ensure his stars shine brightly in football heaven for much longer this time around.
Awaiting Loew and Germany are new tough obstacles and they are down to the coach's darkest hours in charge of the national team.
More than anyone else, Loew remembers that fateful night when Italy's Mario Balotelli shattered his dreams of winning the 2012 European Championship which some say was due to a far too defensive and cautious starting line-up.
Many doubts about Loew's right to take up a place amongst the circle of the world's best coaches have been blown away. The coach's motivation therefore may be no more than an unfulfilled dream to wipe out the bad memory before the European Championship finals start in France in two years time.
Besides the deep satisfaction of leading a young inspiring team, Loew would dearly love to win the biggest prize in Europe.
On his way he has to find a new team captain as Philipp Lahm has retired and a new assistant coach as Hansi Flick has been appointed the new Director of Football for the German Football Association. And what's more, Loew has to find a "new" team as Lahm, Miroslav Klose and Per Mertesacker are no longer available for selection.
Despite being so successful, the World Cup in Brazil revealed problem zones within the German team.
There's the one up front and http://www.losangeleskingsteamstore.com/adidas-jeff-zatkoff-jersey , maybe a bigger one, the one concerning the full-backs. Loew's World Cup strategy of playing with four central defenders in the back-row is not likely to be a.
