PENANG ISLAND, MALAYSIA

- Peak holiday season -- DECEMBER

- avoid the traffic in City area, jetty and Penang Bridge between 5.00 PM to 8.00 PM. During that time, Muslims should perform their Asr and Maghrib prayers. If you're stuck in the traffic, you might lost your Asr and Maghrib prayer time.

- haggling for the price, at least 25%

Peak holiday season -- DECEMBER: Poiana Brasov, Romania
In winter its an excellent place to practice the winter sports - sky

Traffic: very buzy in each weekend (The Bucharest road), so its better to take the train when you wish to travel there :)
Wild life: The bears are very friendly and the tourists likes to take pics with them:) - in winter they are sleeping but in the rest of the year

You are welcomed to come:) here we have some police which is kind agressive toward tourists and loco people but hopefully you will manage to feed them.

They are walking only during the night when the streets are empty and the people are sleeping because they come to eat from....garbage. :-[
Due to this new - not natural food resource their population increased :) and right now the authorities took some measures to give them food in the forest, so they are hoping the bears will not come again in town.
Here you can see them eating from the bin :-[

Most of Muslims live in Constanta, right? Are they immigrants or Romanians?

Ok. Go to Mauritius. No visa required. Halal food available everywhere. white sandy beaches, natural parks, places where you can kite-surf or wind-surf. more commonly known as Paradise of Indian Ocean. Currently peak season. 25-34 degrees celcius.

otherwise u can go to Seychelles as well. made up of lots of small islands. very beautiful.

The pic posted earlier is Dracula castle. During his time definetly didn't wake up nice memories for those who had some business inside. (it was a prison too) .Transylvania is in Romania, the castle is near to Poiana Brasov, the first picture posted by me. So who goes to Poiana Brasov , should visit this castle also.
The name of the castle is Bran. It seems this stairs inspired the author to write in his book about vampires :)

I never heard about haunted castles over here. The castle was build in 1377 but he had only few chambers. It was designed to be a commercial place. Upto 1625 was build in this rectangular shape.:)

We don't eat the bears. We have 5500 bears - which make us to have the largest bears population from Europe. we like the bears, we gave to bears food, left overs, sometimes honey - but mostly that they get from tourists. A restaurant from that place had a special menu for bears. But this summer our authorities became very....cenzurated....and its not allowed anymore to feed them, take pics with them and so on. The restaurant owner got only a warning or he was fined.. i don't remember to clearly. The forest keepers were asked to relocate the bears which came in town. They did it but still are few which remained in their places. :)

Unfortunately places like this won't exist for much longer if current CO2 emissions continue...

I want to go to Iceland, and see the mid-Atlantic ridge. Or Hawaii, which has lava lakes. But Iceland has little halal food, and I don't think the locals like Muslims very much after the Barbary Coast slave-raided the place in the 18th century. And we all know that Hawaiian beaches and hotels are stuffed with imodestly-dressed tourists in bikinis...
