usual sailing roots, more than 4000 km west from Chile. The decendents of the Polinesian people named it Rapa Nui, meaning the great island.
The islands people invented their not yet ecoded writing. During the high times of their culture, which left after itself hundreds of misterious
statues, around 15 thousand individuals praised these monuments. The island was also an inspiration to one of Spilbergs great movies, "Rapa Nui". The movie showed the traditions of two seperate cultures, the "shorteard" and the "longeard". At present the island has a population of 2500 people. It is a place worth visiting, relaxing and thinging over about the history of mankind as a whole and it's diversity. In our gallery we present photographies taken ourselves from this misterious place.

The first space tourism station is being built - in Tonga. The Russians have also been working on plans of a new space shuttle, that could bring the first tourists onto the earth's orbit. Even people in Poland are already queing for a space ride! We present in our first gallery info about these projects and in the second one photos. Please click on a photo!

Washington by the Pacific Ocean 22-march-2002

Washington by the Pacific Ocean - Click !Washington is usually thought of as the capital of the United States of America, named after the great (American) president George Washington. Yet not everyone knows that Washington State, which lies by the Pacific Ocean in the north-west US, has huge tourist qualities. The State's population is 5 million, spread over a region geographically similar to Poland. Washington's beauty stems from its diversity of landscape and access to the Ocean. It's really worth visiting this marvellous State, any time of the year.
The capital of Washington state is Seattle. In Poland, Seattle is perhaps the best known American city after Washington DC because Boeing airplanes, used by PLL LOT, are produced there.

Six months 11-march-2002

It has already been six months since the barbarian attack
on the WTC in New York. Three thousand lives have
been lost - tourists, employees in the WTC and rescurers.
No words can express the depth of this tragedy, nor about
those who have died here, nor of their families and of all
the civilised people of this planet. The first photograph in
the enclosed gallery says: NEW YORK BEGINS AT THE
WORLD TRADE CENTER. One may say that many travel
routes led through New York. And that's why today we
present galleries refering to the non-existant buildings of the WTC, hoping that such a tragedy will never happen again. The right to travel safely and freely should be respected everywhere. We envite you to Our Gallery, which contains also archival photos.

Gustav Vasa. It became the capital in 1812. Its beautiful location at the Bay of Finland, surrounded by plenty of green areas and a
garden-city of Tapiola, ensure unforgettable memories for tourists. We invite you to the first photo gallery. Please click on a photo!

Brazil and the Amazonca 3-march-2002

Brazylia i jej Amazonka - Kliknij!The Amazon (Rio Amazonas) is a 6400 km long river in Southern America, which shouldn't be mistaken with the Greek goddes called Amazon, who lived near the Black Sea in an only-female
community. The length of the Amazon places it in second position in the world's longest rivers after the Nile. For some travelling along or through the dangerous and not-known to human parts of the
river would be a dream-come-true, yet onlysome parts are accesible for ocean cruisers. The Amazonca drainage-basin' s volume is approximately 7 mln km2. The pictures of thedrainage-basin and its inhabitants in our photo gallery are courtesy of TVP 1.
