Founded in April 2002, Travelblog.org was the first popular website to use the term "Travel blog".
TravelBlog.org was developed to help people share their real life travel experiences with friends, family and other travelers. Although there have been many additions to the services TravelBlog.org offers, the website retains this principle and remains both free to use and independent. As of October 2007, TravelBlog.org held over 50,000 members and hosted over 200,000 blog entries.
The site allows travelers to notify subscribers whenever an update is made to their blog. The core features of TravelBlog.org are to allow members to share unlimited photos, embed videos, create maps, and participate in forums.
TravelBlog.org has received positive analysis from a number of media outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Times and The Daily Telegraph. TravelBlog.org has been highlighted by Yahoo and is one of The Times' top 100 travel websites - cited under Travel 2.0.
Aria di Friuli Venezia Giulia, the Prosciutto Festival, takes place from June 24 to 27 2016. As an addition to the Festival, musician Bob Dylan will kick off his Italian Tour on June 27 in San Daniele di Friuli at Zanussi Stadium.
Generally the rules are taken from Australian rules, but each team consists of 15 players, like rugby union.
Unlike Australian rules football, player movement is restricted to zones (similarly to rec footy). There is a line across the centre that backs and forwards can not cross. Onballers are allowed to go anywhere. Forwards can only operate in their attacking half, the backs in their defensive half. Like Gaelic football, players are permitted to bounce the ball only once while running, in order to encourage kicking.
The Vailima Six-Shooters' Championship began in Samoa in 1998 under these rules, becoming known as Samoa rules. A number of Samoa rules players went on to represent Samoa in the Samoan national Australian rules football team.
The kijimuna are small wood spirits according to Okinawan mythology. The kijimuna are said to live in trees, but the most common one is the banyan tree. They are often described as being child-sized, with red hair covering their bodies and large heads. They are also known to be excellent fisherman, able to catch many fish, but then only eating one of the eyes of the fish before leaving the rest of it. The Kijimuna festival in Okinawa is named after them. Another name for the kijumuna is "bungaya," which means roughly "Large-Headed." The Kijimuna are known to be very mischievous, playing pranks and tricking humans. One of their most well known tricks is to lie upon a person's chest, making them unable to move or breathe. This is known as "kanashibari." Even though the Kijimuna are tricksters, they have been known to make friends with humans. However, these relationships often go sour. A kijimuna may offer to carry a human on its back as it leaps through the mountains and over the seas. The kijimuna dislike people passing gas on their backs, however, and will immediately throw the human off, no matter where they were at the moment. The kijimuna also hate octopuses.
