For my paper I chose the Sala Silvermine, located in Västmanland County in Sweden. I like the fact that the hotel is one of the best preserved silver mines. The Silver Mine in Sala was during a long period of time Sweden’s biggest producer of silver and periodically one of Europe’s most important producer. The mine consists of sooty, horizontal galleries at roughly 20 km and where huge cavities and shafts will comfort the visitor’s imagination. They have different kinds of room on their property. There are rooms above ground and there is one underground “mine suite”. The mine suite is 155m underground surrounded by winding galleries and thrilling cavities. Upon arrival you get a guided tour of the 155 m level. After this tour you are served a basket with refreshments (cheese, biscuits, fruits, sparkling wine and chocolate) and left alone with your significant other to enjoy the quietness of the mine. A staff member is above ground and is accessible through an intercom radio because mobile phones don’t work that far underground. There are a few downsides to this underground room. There is a simple toilet located about 50m from the mine suite. You have to go above ground to use a shower or bathtub. The mine is only 2 degrees Celsius all year round, so you have to wear a coat. The rooms are warmed up to about 18 degrees and the bed is equipped with a thick cover and an extra pair of blankets. Personally I wouldn’t want to stay in that cold of a room without an electric blanket. The room also has a two padded chairs that look like they’ve been painted silver and also a few small pillars that have candles on them. I like how they add silver to the décor because that really adds to the whole “old silver mine” feel. Guided tours are the main thing while you’re there. They have tours for all kinds of different mines underground and above ground. They also have tours for children that teach them about
Vacations are supposed to be a time of joy. A chance to create memories and spend time with family and friends. However, there are certain times when the universe has other plans. That is when vacations become memorable for far worse reasons. Our family vacation to OCrolla, North Carolina in August 2011 was exactly that. What started out a a fantastic relaxing vacation quickly became a family nightmare. In a mere six days we weathered a deadly tornado, a freak earthquake, and a
The Best Family Vacation Ever
“Finally,” I said as I fell onto my bed. “My own bed.” I had not slept in my own bed for two weeks. Why? I had just returned from the biggest adventure of my life. My family, including my dad, my step-mom, both of my little brothers, my aunt, two of my cousins, my grandmother, and I, had all rented a fifty foot RV and traveled out west. But let me back up about two months
but I did not understand why. We were on vacation! We were about to be on a beach somewhere relaxing. Why were they fighting! It could not of been that fact that they were driving with three young children who were cranky from sitting in the car for so long and making them stop every other exit for bathroom breaks.
Once we arrived and got out of the car, it was a different scent. It may have been years since I have been anywhere near the ocean, but the faint smell of the salty water and
from local artisans and colorful tojidos, Guatemalan weaving made by the women in the villages, on the beds. I remember the smell of the delicious coffee that was always brewing in the common room of the hotel. After settling in, the rest of the evening was spent getting ready to set out on our mission the next day. We closed the night with a worship service where we learned the songs we would be singing with the children at vacation bible school and discussed our theme for the week, “tener la
plot is the same. The outcomes and turn outs of the events are the same. But only one thing is changing, and missing. The Chorus. To relatively find out how important and how worthy the Chorus is. Imagine the play without the chorus. Would the story still make sense or would it be inexplicably weird? This is why I believe that the Chorus is necessary and crucial to the play and that the Chorus’ importance is very high all throughout the story.
To start off, one of the main and obvious reason
When Vacation Sucks
There I was sopping wet with the concoction of water, sand, mud, and something that reeked like dead fish covering my body. All I knew was that I was in desperate need of solid ground, and a shower. I should have guessed that something like this was going to happen, it was the last night before we went back home after all.
It is not very often my family goes on vacation, but when we do, something bad always happens to me. Whether it be in Ireland where I got lost in
My Ski Vacation
Thin air astounds me as I commerce the final day of skiing at Vail, Colorado. Five days of
skiing glide by rather painlessly. I fall occasionally but an evening in the jacuzzi soothes my
aches and pains. The final day of our trip was approaching and I prepare myself for the final run
of this vacation. Fresh off the ski lift, I glide toward the tails on the face of the mountain. I
realize I am alone and will be heading down the mountain solo. I carefully

Survey on Youth Gangs informed that Canada has 434 youth gangs with roughly 7,000 members nationally. Considering that parents and over all the environments in which children are raised is one of the leading reasons as to why youth join gangs, it should be said that a proper relationship and home would eliminate the need to join gangs in search of acceptance or love.

way to live their lives. As long as we have a why to live for we tend to make life more meaningful and try to accomplish things as we know that we are not here forever therefore we aim to live a full life by making the most of the time we’ve got. If we were told that we had a certain amount of time left before we die we would make the most of the time we have left to create a more meaningful life. Often we are embarrassed when we think that we have not achieved much by a certain time and feel the
