Inside every adult there’s still a child and I think that’s one of the many reasons that the amusement parks are a popular form of entertainment, globally.
Every year millions of people visit different amusement parks to celebrate the fond memories of their childhood.

Universal Studios, Hollywood is one such place. The overall atmosphere and ambiance can make anyone forget the regular monotonous life for at least few hours. People of all age find something or the other to entertain themselves. Movie fans will definitely not regret visiting, as the most amazing studio tour begins here and gives all an equal opportunity to learn about movie making. The Signature Studio Tour is a 45 minutes ride through live shoots, and well preserved – functional movie sets. The star attraction is the King Kong 360 3D experience.

This theme park also has a lot of rides based on popular movies including

Transformers: The Ride – 3D,

Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem,

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,

Revenge of the Mummy,

The Simpsons Ride &

Jurassic Park: The Ride.

May be you haven’t seen the movies but you will still love the rides. I went on each and every ride; some of them even thrice and I enjoyed all of them.
For all the techies out there, the Special Effect Show can be an interesting event. Go behind the scenes to learn about CGI, stop motion and 3-D technology and there use in the latest few Hollywood releases.

Universal Studio is one of the top most tourist attractions in Hollywood. If you are not on schedule then you are for sure missing a part of it. Situated not very far from the Union Station, it has good connectivity by metro. Driving is always considered the best option in Los Angeles. It could be very crowded sometimes and you might have to queue up for up to an hour. Plan it well and you will be sorted. Buying tickets is easy. Simply do it online and skip the queue at the main gate. I strongly recommend a minimum of “Front of Line” passes during a busy weekend. Trust me, you will thank me later!

Inside the park you have free WiFi, lots of kid’s friendly attractions, reasonable dining outlets and a variety of shopping options. Just remember to check the weather before and dress accordingly. Wearing a comfortable pair of shoes might help here. Start early, and prepare to ride the exciting world of movies and get amazed with the magnificent experience.

Books and their importance !

While I travel, mostly I see people around me reading. Probably that’s the best thing that could be done to keep the boredom away. Reading can make us more intelligent. At the same time they take us in a dream world and inspire us; remember, Alice in wonderland or Romeo and Juliet.

The writers of these books put in a lot of efforts, imagination and time along with their experiences with which we learn today and behave in the society. Their ideas could be anything from a loyal animal to a beautiful fairy.

I don’t read books any more but what my mother read out to me while I was young has helped molding my strengths and shape me for what I am in today’s world. Certainly, books are the foundation stone of what this world is all about.

Books are present in our world from many centuries in different forms and shapes.
Our forefathers have taught us more than we use to know. That’s only possible because of the preserved text which we received in today’s world from different places.

Books also play a very important role in a child’s development. They are the primary tools for children as they are fascinated by the color, contents and texture of a book. They might throw or destroy a book initially but this will be the beginning for them to become a successful reader. A book provides a child with vocabulary & helps them understand the world better and develops Social skills.

Today, we can find books in digital formats as per the need of people. Though, all these books provide same knowledge but at the same time they have reduced our packing weight. Imagine if you have to carry a dozen of books for a vacation??

We might be living in a time where computers have become the source of entertainment and knowledge, but the wonderful world of books is still alive. Traditional or digital, both the reading tools can be a faithful friend or a companion and that someone who can guide us forever.
