Bring On The Festivals

May 23, 2011

It’s that time of the year again…the abundance of festivals have hit us and there’s something for everyone all over Great Britain. Whether you’re into your indie or pop-rock, hip-hop or RnB, you definitely won’t have to miss out on the brilliant summer festivals vibe. One day events or weekend long events, the perfect opportunity to hire a campervan for you and a few friends. A campervan, I wonder where you could get one of those from ..wink wink!

Next question is which festival to go to? Honestly, if it were possible and if you have the stamina to do so, I’d say go to each and everyone but that clearly isn’t so here’s a brief summary of what is happening. From the month of May all the way through to September there is an influx of music festivals. To name a few, you can take your pick from Glastonbudget in Leicestershire to The Rockness Festival in Scotland to The Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park or even The Mostly Jazz Festival in Birmingham’s Moseley Park and the ever so popular Glastonbury in Somerset.

A few tips for those of you that are new to the festival experience or have only been to a few:

  1. Remember we live in Great Britain.
    We obviously have days when the weather is totally onside, then we have days when we experience all 4 seasons in the space of 24 hours. Make sure you come prepared for all weather.
  2. Early bird gets the worm…
    …or the best camping spot. The earlier you get to the festival, the better chance you have of getting a great camping spot. No one likes sitting right at the back on next to the toilets.
  3. Food
    Festival provided food can be quite pricey so make sure you’ve stocked up on all your favourites.
  4. Don’t forget the camera
    One of the biggest mistake you could make is attended a brilliant event and forgetting a camera to capture the great moments.

Waves on the river

May 11, 2011

In United Kingdom there is one of the global paradise for the surfers, Newquay, but also, the brits and the visitors can enjoy one surfing spectacular natural phenomenon: the Severn’s wave. It’s a big wave that sometimes can be seen in the Severn estuary, where (existen) of the second world’s highest rivers tides of up to 15.4 metres, as well as the 60 waves that occur throughout the world where the estuary of the river is straight and tidal conditions are such that the formation of a surfable wave for several minutes.

The wave of the Severn is one of the largest in the world, but, to be honest, these phenomenon also occur in the Seine et Gironde in France; the Indus, in the Hooghly and Brahmaputra in India; in the Amazon in Brazil; with the famous Pororoca in Petitcodiac, New Brunswick, and also on the arm of Knik Arm, in Alaska.

The wave of the Severn moves at a speed range of 14 miles/hour (22 kilometers). The shape of the estuary is such that the water is concentrated in an increasingly narrow channel as the tide rises the wave form.

The river’s course goes beyond Avonmouth where it is approximately 5 miles wide, it goes down to Chepstow and Aust, finally Lydney and Sharpness, where its width is approximately 1 mile, and then the river turns to shake a few yards. By the time the river reaches Minsterworth, the crossing is less than a few hundred meters, maintaining this width all the way to Gloucester. Just as the river’s width decreases rapidly, so does the depth of it, thus forming the wave. Thus, as the tide enters the estuary, is directed to an ever-growing channel. Consequently, there is the appearance of the wave.
