Spent a surprise and wonderful holiday in Nan’ao Island, Chenghai City, Guangdong, China.
First of all, let me introduce the Nan’ao Sea-Crossing Bridge. This 11.08-kilometer-long bridge connects Chenghai and Nan’ao Island, and is one of the landmark buildings of Nan’ao Island. When I walked on the bridge, I felt the sea breeze blowing on my face, and the seascape and sky in front of me complemented each other. I couldn’t help but sigh what a wonderful moment it was.
After getting off the bridge, we came to Nan’ao Island. With clear sea water and fine sandy beaches, it is a good place for vacation. On the island, I lived in a homestay called “Nan’ao Island Holiday Villa”. The room here is clean and tidy, well-equipped, and there is a private pool, which made me feel unparalleled comfort and relaxation.
In addition to accommodation, Nan’ao Island has many attractions worth visiting. Among them, what impressed me the most was the “Gate of Nature” on the Tropic of Cancer. This arch built on the Tropic of Cancer gave me a wonderful experience of crossing the northern and southern hemispheres. In addition, Nan’ao Island National Forest Park and Ocean Park are also attractions not to be missed.
In Nan’ao Island, I also tasted local delicacies. Nan’ao seaweed is one of the specialties here. I tasted this delicious dish in a restaurant called “Nan’ao Island Seafood Food Stall”. In addition, the seafood here is also very fresh, which made me eat mouthful after mouthful.
Generally speaking, Nan’ao Island is a very suitable place for vacation and relaxation. Here, I feel the beauty of nature and the harmony between man and nature. If you also want a travel experience like this, you might as well come to Nan’ao Island to have a look!

“I enjoyed being a stewardess, living with roommates in Seattle and travelling and learning about the United States, it was a great experience for me,” she said.
Ethel went on the become America’s First Airport Tour Guide in 1956 at Los Angeles airport.
“Tours were given to school children and adults to interest all in flying, and to make them comfortable with the airport, airplanes and flight,” Ethel explained.
“Flying gave the passengers more time to enjoy their destination, ticket prices were affordable, hence the growth and need for more passengers’ space.”
She added: “Looking back in time at how far LAX has come, it seems to adapt to its growth and increase in passenger totals well and we look forward to seeing it continue to reach its potential.
“The airport has been undergoing a USD $14-billion modernisation program over the past nine years, and the refreshing of the terminals is ongoing to create a more convenient and efficient travel experience for passengers.”

Ryanair: Passengers have a one month “grace period” with the new hand luggage rules (Image: Getty)
Ryanair has changed their hand luggage rules for the second time this year.
The low-cost airline announced earlier this year passengers would need to pay for their baggage to go in the cabin, either with Priority Boarding or for their baggage to be put into the hold.
This came into place from November 1, leading to chaos at a number of airports such as London Stansted with many confused or having to pay additional fees.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs told RTE’s Morning Ireland: “We’re going to waive fees when customers’ bags are slightly larger, or larger, than the permitted allowance.”

He said the airline: “We decided we were going to have a grace period and waive fees weeks ago,” and was not in light of the issues at airports.
In a statement, Ryanair confirmed: “While our new bag policy came in to effect yesterday (November 1), we have briefed our gate agents to take a reasonable approach while customers get used to the new rules over the month of November.”
Many passengers were unhappy with the changes, taking to social media to vent.
One user wrote: “They are 1,000 per cent gonna lose business over the new bag check in.”
Another remarked: “Boycott @Ryanair these new luggage rules are ridiculous and quite frankly I’d rather pay more for better service and will from now on #RyanairMUSTchange.”

Travellers with the airline will no longer be able to take a hand luggage sized suitcase into the cabin for free.
Ryanair passengers can only travel with a personal bag that measures no more than 40cm x 20cm x 25cm.
Bags such as laptop bags or small backpacks are included in this as long as they fit underneath the seat in front.

The bag must not weigh more than 10kg when checking it in, otherwise they could face large fees was the airport.
Earlier this year, the airline announced their first rule change which saw passengers able to put their bag into the hold free of charge while boarding.
Ryanair changed this rule after it caused flight delays amid more people opting for this baggage choice.
The pound is currently trading at €1.147 against the euro, according to Bloomberg.
The Irish backstop is currently at the forefront of most Brexit debates. This is an emergency measure which would be set into motion if the UK left the EU without a Brexit deal.
It is designed to make sure there would be no hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.
However, negotiating the exact conditions of this arrangement has proved difficult so far.
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has challenged existing plans for the backstop, specifically if it is a time-limited deal.
He said: “As a government, we’re working very hard to get an agreement, ideally by the end of the year but one thing we can’t countenance is any idea that there’d be a three-month limit on the backstop.

“A backstop with a three-month limit on it or an expiry date on it of that nature isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
Brexit optimism is still riding on the wave of rumours that Prime Minister Theresa May, 62, has secured a Brexit deal to keep the UK in the customs union after it leaves the EU has kept optimism high.
Laura Parsons, currency analyst at TorFX, told Express.co.uk yesterday: “Although the latest Brexit headlines have been offering mixed messages, rising hopes that the UK will avoid a no-deal exit from the EU have kept the pound buoyed.”
Eurozone PMI data proved disappointing on Tuesday but the pound still remained steady against the euro.
Finalised composite and services PMIs for October both showed a slowdown in economic activity – but not by as much as predicted.

Yesterday’s German factory orders reading also disappointed, after it showed a slowdown from 2.5 per cent growth to just 0.3 per cent.
The next solid piece of data will be today’s Eurozone retail sales readings.
These could spark a euro to pound exchange rate dip, with a year-on-year slowdown anticipated, although the monthly figure is tipped to rise from -0.2 per cent to 0.1 per cent.
Annual figures are usually more high-impact than month-on-month readings, so a mid-week pound to euro exchange rate rise is still a possibility.
Meanwhile, travellers heading to the airport should be aware of the clever trick some airports use to make passengers spend more money.
Mexico is set to be blasted by “dangerous” Hurricane Willa today. This is the latest travel advice.
The powerful storm has brought maximum sustained winds of 140mph this morning and could also hit Mexico with life-threatening storm surge and torrential rain, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
Hurricane Willa is now a Category-5 strength storm. It’s expected to be “a dangerous major hurricane when it reaches the coast of Mexico,” said the NHC.
Rainfall of up to 12 inches is anticipated and could lead to life-threatening landslides and flash flooding as well as “large and destructive waves” along parts of Mexico’s central and southwestern coast.

“A tropical storm watch is also in place between Playa Perula and San Blas. The hurricane season normally runs from June to November and affects both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts.”
The FCO warns travellers should be careful even if they’re not the near the centre of the storm.
“Be aware that effects of tropical storms and hurricanes can span hundreds of miles from the centre of the storm, causing flooding, landslides and disruption to local services, including transport,” they cautioned.
“You should monitor the progress of approaching storms on the website of the US National Hurricane Centre and follow the advice of the local authorities, including any evacuation orders.”
