Atlantis dining room, especiallydesignedto be the perfect place for you to enjoy your fish and chips. Every detail in every room of the hotel, even the bathrooms, has been carefully chosento give it a fun and unique atmosphere.


1 In fact so much work has gone into making each of the sixteenrooms special,it is difficult to believe that just one year before it opened the hotel was a run-down building with a huge hole in the roof. After replacing the roof and planning a whole new interior, the owner, aptly named Mrs Sparkle, began to totally transform the place. She says, "It was really hard work redecorating each room, making the curtains, painting the walls and restoring old furniture; but it was fun as well." Now that the work is finished and each room has its own make believe theme, she has no doubts that it was definitelv worth the effort. z

Mrs Sparklealwaysdreamt about living in a doll's house and she is very happy that she has been able to turn this fantasy into a reality. "Now I just want to be able to provide a place where other people's dreams can come true too," she says. 3 There are certainly some amazing rooms to pick from. Guests can choose to stay in the Teddy Bear's Picnic room, the Barbie room, the Ruined Castle room, the Dinosaur den, the Chocolate room or even the African den, which is designedto make you feel like you're deep in the jungle complete with toy monkeys and animal prints. All the rooms are stockedwith toys and books so your children won't get bored, even if the English weather lets you down.

A B i.


4 In addition to the fantastic guest rooms, Sparkles has much more to offer its young visitors. Every time you book a room you can be sure that entertainment,most of which is organisedby Mrs Sparkleherself,is included in the package. To give busy parents a break in the morning, there is the gameshour in the Sparkle'sden, a large play area, and in the evening, puppet shows and story-tellingmean that there is never a dull moment.


5 Sparkleshotel offers a fantasyworld for the whole family to enjoy.So if you want to give your children a holiday to remember or even to relive your own childhood dreams, Sparklesis the place for you.

Bill: I was an accountantat a large accountingfirm in the city. I spent all my time glued to the computer screen, even at home. That meant I rarely spent any t i m e w i t h m y f a m i l y .T h e n .o n e day it hit me that I was missing out on the truly important things in life. My kids were growing up fast and I felt I wasn't playing a large enough ,..!.i role in their lives. I knew that it was time to give up the rat race and get back to basics. So, we sold our town house and moved to a cottage in the country, wherq we have a small market garden. Gardening had been a hobby of mine when I was younger but when I was working, I just didn't havethe time. Now I have all the time in the world. Financially, life is more difficult, bu! I think it's safe to say that the whole family is much happier now that we've escapedfrom the hectic pace of citv life. Jean: Ever sinceI can remember, I've enjoyed making my own clothes.My friends were always commenting on my original designs, so I often made clothes for them as well. It never occurred to me that I could make a lMne at it until a friend of a friend askedme to make her wedding dressand offered to pay me. Suddenlymore ,and more people started approachingme and asking me to rnake clothes for them. It soon reached the ;poin!,where I was spending all my spare time at the fwing m4chine and my designs were bringing in more money than my job! I handed in my notice at 'work and rented a small shopwith a flat abovewhich I turned into my workshop. I'm happy to say that businessis booming: I now employ ten people and I'm about to open a secondbranch!

Sally: When I finished universigr I decided to take a year off and work abroad. It was a decision which changedmy life. I got a job teaching Engtish in Spain, so I packed my clothes,_sloted everything else and headedfor the Mediterranean.I didn't speak a word of Spanish at first, so it took a while to settle in. The pace of life was different, toe:,much slower and more relaxed 'i i than in England. Most of all, though, I noticed the differencein climate and the way that aflectedmy personality.Being under clear blue skiesand a trlazing sun gave me more ener$/ than I'd ever had befofe.rI I'elt positive and content. After a few months, I knew that I didn't want to leave,so I decided to settle there and sent for the rest of my belongings.I've been here for three yearsnow; I'm fluent in Spanishand I have a tan all year round! Stewarh The most important lessonI've learnt in my life is that you have to take risks. If there is something you really want to do, you have to give it a try, evenif rt means giving up the security of receiving a monthly pay cheque.I had alwayswanted to write, but with all my commitments, I simply couldn't find the time. Finally, I decided to follow my dream and that meant the job had to go.

Close your eyesand imagine the perfect beach. Soft white sand,beautiful blue sea,and the temperature a constant30 degreesCelsius.But wait, there's more: no risk of sunburn, no insects or bugs, no sharks or jel\.fish, and, at regular intervals, the best surfing waves imaginable. Too good to be true? Not anymore.Thanks to modern technology and the miraclesof science,this beach really doesexist and it is on the island of Kyushu in southernJapan. 1 In a resort complex called Seagaiayou will find the Ocean Dome. The Ocean Dome contains,among other things, the world's largestartificial seabesidethe biggestindoor beach.It is roughly the size of six football fields and has an 85-metre shoreline. The soft white sand is actually made of crushed marble chips, which won't stick to your skin, and the water is salt free and chlorinated. The temperature of the water is kept at 28'C and the air is kent at 30"C.

2 The Dome has everythingyou would expectto find on a big tropical island: caves,waterfalls, small islands,palm trees and that's just the beginning.There is a man-made volcano that erupts at regular intervals, waterslides,a wave pool and even a virtual reality raft ride where passengersare tossed,shakenand splashedwith water.

In Seagaiayou don't even have to carry any money with you. Visitors pay an admissionfee at the entrance and are given colour coded barcode tags, which they use instead of cash.

Naturally, no island holiday is complete without hxury hotels, boutiques and a wide variety of restaurantswith everythingfrom fine dining to fast food, and Seagaiahas them all. There are even several theatres,golf courses and tennis courts. The Ocean Dome feels so real that visitors to the resort still use suntan lotion and wear sunhats even though the 'sunlight' is artificial and harmless.

The Dome itself actually has a roof that opens but it is only used when the weather outside is at the same temperature as the weather inside the dome. It is also quite ironic that the Ocean Dome was built only 300 metres away from the real ocean.Strangelyenough, the real beach is usually quite empty even on hot and sunny days becauseholidaymakersseem to prefer the safety, comfort and predictabilityof the artificial beach.

Nowadays,theme parks are springing up everywhereand it looks like virtual reality holidays are going to be the way of the future. After all, they are cleaner, safer and far more convenientthan real holidays.However,can we really compare the experienceof sitting on an artificial beachwith man-madesandunder a fake sun to a day on a real beach? Where is the challenge in surfing manmade waves when you know exactly how big they are going to get and exactlywhen they are going to appear? More importantly, where is the fun in coming back from a seasideholiday without tan lines? llgYt:t..,.. 'zt2lryt&71?t?wv::.:,t?,a/7r..?&. ' ,.""tt''tttt:7v"?t'{"'t'':'ttl:"|t::lttttr\:t":l

Many of us look forward to our summer holidays all year. We can't wait to get awayfrom our everydaylives,to visit new places,try new things,orjust to relax and lie in the sun.But how many of us think about the effect our holidays have on the placeswe visit? Although tourism has many benefits, such as bringing extra money into the local economy,there are alsonegative effects. Tourism can do all sorts of damage to the environment, the culture and the people of a country, especially in places which aren't prepared for large numbers of holidayrnakers.In recent years there has been a large increase in the number of independent travellers who want to get off the beaten track, and this has meant that many remote destinationsare having to adjust to new visitors. It certainly isn't all bad news though. The last few years have also seen a huge increase in 'eco-tourism'. This is 17 tourism where holidaymakerstry to have a positive effect on the people and places that they visit. If you are really committed to this idea, then you can spend your holidays helping out on an organic farm in Britain, or taking part in conservationprojects in Africa or the Amazon rainforest. Don't worry, though, if this doesn't sound like your idea of a holiday. Wherever you go and whatever you want to do, there are still ways to make sure that you have the best possibleimpact on your holiday destination. If you are headingoff to a place for the first time, it is an excellentidea to find out as much about it as you can. A guidebookis a great placeto start.As well aslearning about the local placesof interest,you can read about the wayyou will be expectedto behave and dress.This can saveyou from making embarrassingmistakes and means that you are less likely to upset or offend your hosts.Don't stop at the guideboo( though. If you can, listen to some music or

:ead some literafure from your chosen destination. Knowing a little about the place that you are visiting before r ou leave can make your holiday much more enjoyable ,,r.hen you arrive. It is also important to think about how you spend your inoneywhen you are on holiday. Whenever you can, try to :ut it into the local people's hands. You can do this by ;ating and drinking local products rather than imported "rrands, stayingin locally owned accommodationand using .ocal guides. In some parts of the world, you might be :elatively well off compared to the local population. Even n placeswhere you are expectedto haggle or bargain,you should alwayspay a fair price for things. Remember that 'n'hatmight be a very small amount of money to you, can 48 inake a big difference to somepeople. Another important thing for the eco-touristis to have as iittle effect on the local environment as possible.This is easyto do if you follow some common-senseadvice.Don't teave litter lying around and use biodegradable products rr'heneverpossible. If resourceslike water or fuel are in short supply, then use as little of these as you can, and of course you should never buy products made from rare plants or endangeredanimals. If you are luclcyenough to risit a truly exotic destination such as a coral reef, remote mountain or desert region, or a rainforest then you should try to leave it exactlyas you found it, so that future visitors can enjoy it just asyou did. Eco-tourism organisations say that respecting the culture and environment of the places that you visit will lead to much more rewarding and enjoyableholidays.If we try to encouragethe local economy,leave the environment undamaged and are aware of the different laws and attitudes in the placeswe visit, then all of us can enjoy our 'eco-holidays' much better now and in the future. With more and more of us planning holidays in new locations everyyear, we should all do our bit to make sure that we are alwayswelcomewhereverwe go.

ffimwffi Many of the world's cities lie under a permanent blanket of smog. People are conceffled about global rvarming,and fuel pricesjust keep going up and up. It's no surprisetherefore, that in recent years,car manufacturers have been put under pressure to invent a vehicle that is both cheaper to run and better for the environment. Finally, after much trial and error, it seemsas though they might be making progress, and the future of the car industry is beginning to look a little 'greener'. One of the first ideas which car manufacturerstried, rvas to replace engines which run on fossil fuels with electric motors. Unfortunately, these vehicles had several drawbacks and they didn't sell very well. The problems were that the batteries of these electric cars ran out very quickly and took a long time to recharge. Also, the replacementenergypackswere very expensive. However, the idea of electric cars has not been scrappedaltogether.Car manufacturershave improved the concept so that environmentally friendly cars can now be efficient and economical as well. This is where the hybrid car, which has both an electric motor and a traditional petrol engine,comesin. The electric motor never needsto be recharged and it is much better for the planet than a traditionalcar. In a hybrid car, the engine is controlled by a computer which determines whether the car runs on petrol, electricity; or both. When the car needs maximum power, for example,if it is acceleratingor climbing a steep hill, it uses all of its resources,whereas at steady speedsit runs only on petro'I.When slowing down or braking, the electric motor recharges its batteries. Hybrid cars are better for the environment because the electric motor can help out whenever it is needed and they have a much smaller engine than a traditional car. Also, hybrid cars on the market are made using materials such as aluminium and carbon fibre, which makes them extremely light. Both of these factors mean that they use far less petrol than normal cars, so they produce less pollution. Of course,hybrid cars aren't perfect; they still run on fossil fuel and so pollute the environment to some extent. However, they may be the first step along the road to cleaner, 'greener' cars. Car manufacturers are already working on vehicles which run on hydrogen. The only emissionfrom these cars is harmlesswater vapour. These are still some way in the future, though, as designersneed to think of cheap and safeways of producing, transporting and storing hydrogen,but at last, it looks like we might be headingin the right direction.

up, but I felt sure it must be valuable."


Tony McKenzie has a rather unusual hobby. Every Saturday and Sunday, he gets up at six o'clock in the morning, packs some sandwichesand a flask of tea into a backpackand headsout to the fields behind his housewith his favourite toy - a metal detector. "We bought him the metal detector for his fortieth birthday," sayshis wife Carol. "He had alwayswanted one, but we never realisedhe would use it as much ashe does!"

Many of us find it difficult to understand how wandering around in a muddy field for hours on end can possiblybe enjoyable,but Tony saysthat there is nothing he would rather do. He doesn't like football or fishing, but when he is out and about with his metal detector,he feels asthough nothing elsematters. T:T-

II I | "He usually finds silly little things, like tin cans and pieces of machinery," Iaughs Carol. "Whatever he finds, he brings home, cleans,and keeps in a special box which he has in the garage.The children think he is crazy." However, Tony's family may now have to admit that his pastime is not quite so silly after all. After years of uncovering worthless items, Tony has finally achieved everytreasureseeker'sdream and found somethingrather special buried in the ground. His great discoverywas a little figure of a horse which may be worth thousandsof pounds. "I'll never forget the day I found my first piece of real treasure,"smilesTony. "I was in a field I'd never been to before. t-tl Then, just as I was about to give up and go home, I picked up a signal." Tony immediately felt very excited and began digging in the damp earth. Suddenly, he saw a tiny metal shape, covered in mud. "When I scrapedoff the dirt, I could see that it was a tiny horse," says Tony. "It was beautifully made and looked very old. I didn't want to get my hopes

A I e n d e du p w i t h a b o u tf 3 0 , 0 0 0w , h i c hi ss t i l la b i g w i n d f a lflo r m e Even Tony's wildest dreams could not have p r e p a r ehdi m f o r t h e t r u t h ,t h o u g h So,what kind of 'treasure'doesTonyfind on his e x p e d i t i o nt os t h e l o c a cl o u n t r y s i d e ? He spendseveryweekendsearchingfor buried treasure, whateverthe weather Tony'schildrenusedto wish that their dad would g i v eu p h i ss t r a n g eh o b b y l ' d b e e ns e a r c h i nagl l d a y ,b u t t h e o n l yt h i n g sl ' o managedto dig up werea few bitsof rubbish

IJ I | "When I took it to the museum to have it valued, I got a huge surprise," he laughs. 'I would have been overjoyed if the figure had been worth a hundred pounds or so.I never imagined for a minute that it would be valued at over f60,000. That's hke a lottery win! It's unbelievable!"

Nothing as old or aswell-preservedhasbeen Fl-l found in Britain before, becausemost statuesfrom around that time were destroyedback in the 16th century. Tony took the statue to the British Museum in London, where historianswere amazedto seesuch a rare artefact in such good condition. The British Museum decided to purchasethe statuefrom Tony and displayit to the public. What does Tony plan to do with his new-found wealth? "Well, actually, I'm not as rich as you might think," he chuckles."When a piece of treasure is dug up on someone else'sland, half of the value goesto the person who found it, and the other half goesto the landowner. ll-J--l I'planning to buy Carol a new car and take tne?hdon a wonderful holiday." Will Tonybe taking the metal detector awaywith him? "No way!" saysCarol. "We won't be teasinghim as much about his hobby anymore,but I will insist that we have a holiday from it for a while and spend some time together as a family. Mind you, I think the children will be more keen to keep Tony company on his weekend treasure hunts now that they've seen that they can be fruitfull" Tony doesn't think that he will ever find anything as amazing as the little horse again, but this hasn't stopped him from enjoying Saturdays and Sundayswith his metal detector. "It's not about money for me," he says." 6l-l i | I'll never give up my hobby ,;i, because it gives me hours of pleasure. You can't put a price on that!"

Ringling Bros.and Barnumand Bailey The RinglingBros. and Barnumand Bailey circus is you would expecta circusto be, with all the everything clowns,acrobats,and performinganimalsthat you could imagine.This is hardlysurprisingsince the circus is a familybusinessthat datesback more than130years.The computerised lightand soundshow might be right up to date but otheraspectsof the show havehardlychanged at all for morethana century.Audiences todayarejust as impressedas ever by Sara and her trainedtigers,the troop of eight performingelephants,and the gravity defyingtricks of the high wire artists.And if all this isn't enough,then there are the clownswho alwayshave the audienceroaringwith laughterat theircomedyroutines. A visit to the RinglingBros.and Barnumand Baileycircus certainlymakesfor a nightto remember. After all,it is, as 'The the organisers describeit, GreatestShowOn Earth@.' Cirquedu Soleil Cirquedu Soleilwas foundedby a groupof friendsin Canadain 1984,and sincethen it has gonefrom strength to strength.This is not a traditionalcircusas there are no animalsinvolvedin the show,just a uniquemix of breathtakingacrobatics,tumbling gymnastic displays, masterfuljugglingand impressivecontortionists. Cirque du Soleilstartedas a smallshow which touredeuebec in Canada,but due to its hugepopularity it has grown tremendously. Todaythe companyorganisesup to eight shows at any one time all around the world, and employs 2400 people. They have three permanent crrcusesin speciallydesignedbuildings,two in Las Vegasand one in DisneyWorld in Florida,and their other shows tour the US, Asra and Europe. The organisation employsthe best composersand costume designers,so that each of the shows has its own dramaticmusical score and fantasticcostumeswhich bring peopleback to see the shows againand agarn. Sincethat humblebeginningin 1984,almost30 million peoplehave enjoyedone of Cirquedu Soleil'soriginal and entertaining shows. The Big Apple Circus The Big Apple Circusis a non-profitorganisation based in New Yorkand dedicatedto raisingmoneyand working with sick children.The circus organisesa traditional show undera big top in New york. They have also put on showsin US citiessuchas Bostonand Washinqton.

What's more, you can evenhire performers from the Big Apple Circusto perform at yourschool,business or party.The organisation also puts on a specialshow each year for deaf and blind childrencalled 'Circus of the Senses@.' However,the foundersPaul Binderand MichaelChristensen are mosl proud of their 'Big Apple CircusClown Care Unit@.' In this programme, specially trained clowns entertain criticallyill childrenin twenty-one hospitalsaroundthe United States.As Christensensays, "A child's natural need to laughcan get lost in the tangleof hospital procedures."With their shows,which includereo nose transplantsand chocolate milk transfusions,the Big Appleclownstry to bringlaughterbackto thesechildren. CircusEthiopia The first show that CircusEthiopiaput on in Addis Ababa in 1991was a very simple affair. A few ropes were tied togetherto form the ring and a car stereo providedthe sound.However,the free show which was put on by a group of school children,who performed jugglingand tight rope walking,was a some acrobatics, huge success.Now,the free Sundayshow has become a traditionin Ethiopra's capitaland can attractup to 5000 spectators.Marc La Chance,a Canadianteachingin Addis Ababa,wantedto give the childrenthat he worked with a brighterfuture. He came up with the idea of Circus Ethiopiaafter teachingsome childrenrn his neighbourhood basic circusskills.Sincethen,the idea has spreadand spreadand now nine other cities in Ethiopiahave their own versionof the circus,which are supported by international charities. Thousands of school childrenare involvedwith the circus,where they are providedwith food and tutors to make sure they don't missout on theireducation. Theyare alsoencouraged to teach at a crrcusschool,which allowsthem to earn an income.The shows that they put on have developed over the years, and now many traditionalEthiopian dancesand songs are includedin their routineqivino CircusEthiopiaits own uniquecircusstyle.
