Uluru like you've never seen it before | Field of Light

Uluru like you've never seen it before | Field of Light | Psytrips | Travel | Scoop.it

Composed of 50,000 stems that hold different shades of coloured light, the installation covers 49,000 square metres. But the numbers mean little once you're immersed inside,giving the impression the lights stretch on towards Uluru, around five kilometres away.

It took 40 people six weeks to plant the stems of light, which were transported by Qantas without breaking a single piece


Bruce Munro's Field of Light opens to the public on April 1 2016 and runs to 31 March 2017. | see brochure : http://online.pubhtml5.com/ecvv/jezv

‘It’s cheaper to fly home than take the train’

‘It’s cheaper to fly home than take the train’ | Psytrips | Travel | Scoop.it
ONE teenager’s money-saving flight from Britain to Germany and back may make some of us rethink our European travel plans.
Webgrrl's insight:

Jordon Cox, 18, was so incensed by the cost of a train ticket from Sheffield to his home in Essex that he decided to see if flying was cheaper.

After searching the internet for a deal he decided that flying via Germany would be cheaper than a UK train ticket.

Jordon flew with RyanAir from East Midlands Airport to Stansted via Berlin. He saved GBP8 ($A16.25) in the process, despite spending his seven hour layover on a whistlestop tour of the German capital feasting on currywurst sausage at the Brandenburg Gate.

In the latest example of exceptional good deeds by flight crew, a pilot aborted a flight from Manchester, UK to Australia while the plane was on the runway so a couple could rush to say goodbye to their dying grandson.
