Happy Summer Vacation

1st Stop: Burj Al Arab Hotel

Spend a night at the world's fanciest five-star hotel. Get treated like royalty1, served, spoiled and 1)pampered till your heart's content! One spectacular suggestion, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. A 2)limousine3 picks you at the airport and 3)whisks you off to your private paradise. Once inside the colorful hotel, you'll be 4)escorted to your guest suite4, which comes with your own private 5)butler. The room is 6)crafted from the finest materials from around the world and 7)decked out with every imaginable luxury, from video on demand to a steamy Roman spa. The price for all this 8)indulgence: $10,000 a night, but that includes the butler!

2nd Stop: Northern Lights

See the Northern Lights, also known as "God's Light Show. "This magical 9)iridescent5 phenomenon has 10)entranced people for centuries both for its beauty and mystery. While you can sometimes catch sight of them in the northern United States, the farther north you go the more vivid they glow, the North Pole being best.

3rd Stop: Great Museums

Plan a great museum vacation, great art museums in the great cities of the world. Start with the Louvre in Paris: after walking through the I.M. Pei pyramid entrance, visitors encounter one of the greatest art collections in the world, including treasures like the 11)Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa. Next, travel to Washington, D.C. and the world's biggest museum, the 12)renowned6 Smithsonian. There are a total of 16 different museums within the Smithsonian, from the Air and Space Museum to the Museum of American Art, which houses great works of art by the likes of 13)Georgia O'Keefe and 14)Andrew Wyeth.

4th Stop: The Tanzanian Plain

Visit Africa's Serengeti Plain in northeast Tanzania, near Kenya. This 15)sprawl7 of wilderness8 is home to world's largest concentration of zebras, 16)hippos and giraffes. If you're lucky, you might witness the incredible 17)spectacle of a mass 18)wildebeest migration9 or catch a glimpse of the plains?19)dwindling elephant and 20)rhino10 populations, which have sadly been 21)decimated by 22)poachers. This may be your last and best chance to see these spectacular creatures outside a zoo. So go -- now!

5th Stop:   The Ganges & The Nile

I mmerse yourself in the great rivers of the world. First the Ganges, the sacred river of India. The Ganges is 1,560 miles long. Indian people use its waters to drink, to irrigate11 their fields and to bathe. These waters have a value to them that is both physical and 23)metaphysical: here they can 24)cleanse12 their skin and their souls. Next the Nile, the longest river in the world. At 4,187 miles, the waters of the Nile have nourished Egypt for thousands of years. Wherever you 25)plunge13 your hand in to the waters of the Nile, you'll be 26)reenacting a 27)ritual that goes back to the very dawn of civilization.

6th Stop: Star Screen Test

Getting the most out of life may or may not include getting your 28)proverbial 15 minutes of fame, but our next pick will get you one step closer. Take a screen test and become a star. For every actor who becomes a star, tens of thousands don't make it and yet it's still a classic fantasy. So, what the heck! Give it a try! It's a tough, risky14, possibly humiliating grab at the big brass15 ring of money, fame and fortune.

7th Stop: Fly!

Fly! Not in a plane, 29)chopper or some other 30)contraption, just you and several thousand feet of open air! Jump out of a plane, and for once in your life find out what it feels like to soar! Free, 31)unfettered, 32)tumbling in a 33)rapture16 of weightless wonder at speeds of a l15 to 130 miles an hour suspended between heaven and earth, it's a moment of 34)sheer 35)bliss17 that's only slightly 36)hindered as you 37)deploy18 your 38)parachute, which is why you should do it.

And finally the first thing you should do on your life's journey, make up your own list and live your own dream. At the end of the day, you alone can decide what the well-lived life is for you. Don't be afraid to dream the biggest dreams and after you've made your own list just turn those wishes into gold by giving them a deadline and remember, it's not too late if you start right now!

.快乐暑假逍遥游

第一站  阿拉伯塔酒店

到世界上最豪华的五星级酒店住上一晚,领略皇族般的礼遇,享受贴心的服务,接受别人无微不至的安排,甚至是予求予取的对待!不妨考虑一下迪拜的阿拉伯塔酒店吧,在机场就有豪华轿车快速把你送到这私家天堂。一进入这富丽堂皇的酒店,你就会被护送至自己的套房,那里还为你配有私人男管家。套房选用的是全球一流的材质,同时从应有尽有的视频点播,到热气腾腾的罗马水疗浴池,豪华设施一应俱全。顶级享受所需花费: 每晚房价一万美元,不过这已包含了男管家的费用。

第二站    极光

欣赏一下北极光,也称作“神光秀”。这迷人的奇观,正因为它美丽而神秘,令世人神往了几个世纪。虽然有时你能在美国的北部看到它们,但越往北走,其光芒越灿烂,尤以北极最佳。

第三站  博物馆

筹划一个参观大型博物馆的假期吧,去看看世界各大城市的大型艺术博物馆。就从巴黎的卢浮宫开始吧,走过贝聿铭先生设计的金字塔大门,游客可欣赏到全球最优秀的艺术品,如米洛的维纳斯和蒙娜丽莎一类的珍品。接下来到华盛顿特区去看看全球最庞大的博物馆——极负盛名的史密森尼博物馆。从航空航天馆到美国艺术馆,史密森尼总共有16间不同的分馆,馆内收藏着像乔治亚·奥基夫和安德鲁·怀斯等名家的艺术极品。

第四站  坦桑尼亚平原

到坦桑尼亚东北部、靠近肯尼亚的塞伦盖蒂平原观光。这片辽阔的荒野是斑马、河马和长颈鹿在全球最大的聚居地。幸运的话,你还能目睹野生动物大批迁徙的壮观景象,欣赏原野上由于被偷猎者大量捕杀而日渐减少的大象群、犀牛群。这可能是你在动物园之外欣赏它们的最佳、也是最后时机了,赶快动身吧。

第五站   恒河与尼罗河

    将自己浸泡在最伟大的河流之中。首先是印度的圣河--恒河。恒河有1560英里长,印度人用河中的水解渴、灌溉和沐浴。河水对他们的身体和精神来说都具有特殊的意义,他们可以在这里净化自己的身体和心灵。接下来是尼罗河。尼罗河是世界上最长的河流,全长4187英里,河水滋养了埃及数千年。无论你将手放入河中的哪个地方,都是将文明之初的一种仪式的重演。

第六站   明星试镜

你人生中追求的最重要的东西,可能包括(当然,也可能不包括)一夜成名。不管怎么说,我们下面的推荐可以让你更接近这个目标--去参加试镜成为明星。虽然在数以万计的演员中,就只有那么一位可以成为闪亮的明星,但这仍然是很多人心中的梦想。怕什么,去试试嘛!尽管那需要冒极大的风险,有时甚至还颜面尽失,但也可能为你带来名利双收。

第七站    飞翔

去飞行,但不要借助飞机、直升机或者其它什么新发明的飞行器,只有你和数千英尺的大气。只要跳出机舱,就能有生以来头一回感受到飞翔的那种自由、解放的滋味。以每小时115至130英里的速度,以无重的状态,在天空和大地之间翻腾,这一刻真是乐翻天。直到打开降落伞,这种极致快感才告一段落。所以你一定要试!
    最后,你此生要做的第一件事就是:写下你的计划,拥有自己的梦想。最后你就能独自判断哪种生活最适合你了。不用害怕编织最绚丽的梦想,自己的计划一旦做好了,就定下一个美梦成真的期限,记住:现在开始也不算太迟。
