Anti Theft Backpack Mark Ryden Backpack

Anti Theft Backpacks make a surprisingly new consumption of the US Market. The first known backpack brand was the Bobby Backpack which was made in 2012 by an individual in Great Britain. Since there have been serious counterfeits that are made in China and sold in the United States. Mark Ryden Backpack is different

Produced in the United States, Mark Ryden Backpack has been in business since 2014, producing Anti Theft Backpacks in the United States. Surprisingly, they produce more than backpacks, producing wallets, travel backpacks, as well as sling backpacks. They are growing in the United States and plan to expand to other countries for production. We tried an Anti Theft Backpack for ourselves to see if lived up to the hype.

When unpacking the backpack was black with zippers that were grey. The logo was clearly imprinted on the front with the zippers having a grey logo on it. The front has big stripes that looked really nice. The interior was even better! The interior had three compartments that were roomy enough to fit a camera or even a laptop. However, the most impressive part was the anti-theft feature. The zippers face back towards your back so you don’t have to worry about your things being stolen. I thought this feature was really neat and extremely practical, especially if you are traveling!

Why do I recommend it? You’ll say hey Mark, there are tons of Anti Theft Backpacks on the market so what makes this different? First, the backpack has a USB charging port! Neat right? This port easily connects with a cord allowing you to charge your dead phone in a heartbeat. Another feature is the anti-theft pockets on the backside of the backpack. This hidden anti-theft pocket is perfect for storing your tiny items, say a wallet or even your phone if you don’t want to carry it around! I think the coolest part was the hidden pocket on the backpack strap. You can easily store a credit card or subway card if you a commuter, giving you easy access without breaking a sweat. The backpack also has reflective features on the front which makes riding your bike at night extremely safe.

British Columbia Interior Road Trip

Most visitors are surprised to learn that British Columbia, Canada has a large area that is very similar to the arid and dry landscapes of Central California. There a many differences of course like a colder winter season and many more beautiful glacier fed lakes that dot the landscape. However, there are also many similarities such as the low rolling hills, tumble weed, wine country, fruit production and desert sunsets. Yes that’s right, a dessert! Canada’s only official desert, classified by limited annual precipitation is located on a thin strip of land between 2 lakes in the interior of British Columbia.

British Columbia offers visitors and eco tourists some of the most spectacular views and natural landscapes in the world. Most people are aware of the beautiful Pacific Coast where rainforest covered mountains meets the shimmering ocean or the majestic Rocky Mountains standing high to the east (technically in Alberta but really they are the climax of a gradual geological story told across British Columbia that builds up from tectonic activity beyond the western shores). Provincial lines drawn on natural barriers are not here nor there, what is important to realize the beauty and enjoyment that can be found in between the more known and celebrated natural monuments of Western Canada.

In fact, it’s the geology and weather patterns that create this gem of a region in Central British Columbia. As the moist cold air comes of the Pacific and reaches land it is driven upwards by the Coastal Mountains creating large amounts of precipitation. This creates the lush and rich rainforest all along the coast. After this mountain range the air that has dumped a tremendous amount of moisture passes over the lower, hilly and lake filled interior of British Columbia before being forced up to even greater heights by the legendary Rocky Mountains. The result of this dance between air and earth is an area that the locals call ‘The Interior.’

Traveling to Vancouver is a great trip in itself, but getting the opportunity to get out of the city to explore the nature and landscapes of the province is where the real unique side of this part of the world resides. Renting a car and driving out will get you to these places very easily and in a relatively short period of time. In just a few hours drive you’ll be on your way through changing landscapes and mountain passes where you’ll witness the transformation from lush green mountainous rain forest to arid golden rolling hills.

Anytime of year is worth the drive although in winter the frost bites much harder in central British Columbia than on the moderated coast. The peak time, at least when most of the locals head inland, is in the summer months. At that time the weather is hot and dry, perfect to jump into one of the many gorgeous lakes that sprawl across the region. Watersports on the lakes, boating, biking, golf and wine touring amongst many other activities are all at your fingertips. The area is hugely popular with families as well with the many waterparks, festivals, beaches and family camping spots.

Winter doesn’t give you that Central California feel (but with lakes!) but rather a uniquely snowy desert with ski resorts, cross-country trails, snowmobiling and much more. Obviously you need to dress differently and the activity calendar shifts but the beauty and fun for the whole remains limitless. From the sweetness of the regions ice wines to the thrill of the renowned light dry champagne power of skiing enthusiasts, this destination is full of unique experiences.

A visitor can fly into the regional airports of the area from Vancouver and even to an international airport in the city of Kelowna directly. Even though the views from an airplane are also spectacular, the drive through the coastal mountains and then out into the drier Interior of British Columbia will become lasting memories for you and your family. Once you arrive you have many options to stay and having your vehicle will allow you to explore the many lakes, sights and towns in the region. The Interior is a sizable area with many spots to see so having your own wheels will provide you with the flexibility and convenience to leisure enjoy them all.

The Three Rondavels’ View, South Africa

Formerly known as the Three Sisters, the natural formations, called today as the Three Rondavels are one of the famous attractions along the Mpumalanga’s Panorama Route in South Africa. They, together with the Blyde River Canyon offer a breathtaking view to the on lookers. The word Rondavel refers to a round hut shaped dwelling (commonly with a thatched roof). The three gigantic peaks of Quartzite and shale with absolute rock walls rise to a height of approx. 700 meter above the adjoining landscape. The peaks got their names from the three most nuisance creating wives of the Chief Maripi; Mashile – Magabolle, Maseroto and Moqoladikwe. Behind the Three Rondavels is the 2300 feet deep ravine, where stands the Maripeskop at 1944 meters which is the highest peak in Mpumalanga and is named after the Pulana chief, Maripe who fled to that mountain with his tribe in the early 19th century to escape from the attacks of the Swazis.

There is a magnificent view of the Three Rondavels from the Blyde River Canyon which displays the mother nature at it’s best and many tourists take the refuge of the canyon to look over to the awesome sight of the Three Rondavels or the three sisters. The scene is overpoweringly beautiful and a moment’s span is not enough to absorb the mesmerizing panorama in the eyes. The vast canyon that people visit along with the Three Rondavels is a wonderful place in itself. There are fantastic craggy slopes covered in lush green foliage which makes a lovely backdrop for selfies.

On reaching the site one will find buses and vehicles parked up, full of tours. The people are requested to follow the paved route that reaches the mountain top that is fenced to avoid any accident. There is beautiful scenic view all along the path upwards and one can relax in between to enjoy the view. The weather on the day when you are planning your visit matters the most. If mist envelopes the site then it is a bit challenging to enjoy the trip to the fullest or you have to wait till the weather gets clear. There are numerous walkways and pathways that one can follow for a different view from different angles but has to remain cautious about the strong winds that are frequent to the place. En-route you can find a sign to “God’s window” a point from where one can enjoy the brilliant views over the great canyon and the hills around them.

Near the Roundavels lies another geographical highlights of South Africa, the Bourke’s Luck Potholes. The strong water current beating against the rock in circular motion has caused it to erode creating round shaped holes that are similar to potholes that are generally seen on the roads of Africa. The dark coloured water and the rocks in different shapes and hues offer an equally befitting scenario. If you wish to plan your trip to this amazing destination in South Africa flights are available from UK that offer comfortable travel at low priced fares. One can choose from a wide variety consulting flight travel agents and confirm their vacation to South Africa.
