Travel Vitamins 04/11/2014 – Part 2

This week the world is mainly focussing on the hurricane’s heading for the Australian coast and the threat at the Russian/Ukraïne border.  Spring is here and Summer is only a few weeks ahead.

Did you ever ask yourself why the World needs to have all those conflicts? I did many times and never found the right answer. It’s all about power and balance as it has been since ancient times. It’s part of live, just like health and happiness. As well in the Human World as in Animal World. Some people get a lot, some don’t. Some are happy, others ain’t. Partly because of objective facts, partly because of the way people feel like when something is happening in their lives. But part of this all, can be decided and created by yourself. A little advice, do that for yourself.In every situation there’s always a possibility to find a way to give yourself that little joy you’re longing for. For me travel is one of them. So I take travel as my vitamins. Taking my vitamins makes me healthier and my mind clearer. As I said before, travel broadens our mind.

So let’s have a look today at beautiful Monterey on the Southern Edge of Monterey Bay, in California.

Most of the visitors who passing by aren’t (fully) aware of the historical importance of this nice city, nor of the importance to protect threatened species.

Monterey was the site of the Battle of Monterey of July 7, 1846, during the American-Mexican War. The day that the US flag was raised and John Sloat, Commodore in the United States Navy, California claimed for the United States. Her nickname is “Cradle of History” because a lot of the “first” things in California have been risen there, including the first newspaper The Californian“.  Many years later, around 1920, the sardine market had increased greatly and Monterey became known as Cannery Row. A few years later Monterey became known as the Sardine Capital of the World. After World War II, after the sardine market decreased because of a rapid decline of the sardine population for till now still unknown reasons, Cannery Row became such as a ghost town of warehouses in the former first Capital of California. This seemed to be the sign to convert the old Cannery Row in shops, galleries and restaurants, which brought tourism back to this beautiful little town.

Monterey is also the habitat of the Southern Sea Otter, for which the Monterey Marine accomplished a conservation territory. A lot of them you’ll find at the Harbour and Fishermans Wharf in Monterey. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is not only a place where many tourists joining the row to visit the inhabitants of the Sea, but is also an Ambassador herself for Ocean Life Conservation. It’s open all year, except on Christmas Day and located at Cannery Row. If you love species like me, a Whale Watching trip  is recommendable as well as watching the  Sea Otters swimming and resting at Fisherman’s Wharf  itself, next to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. They have several projects, where is, among a lot of others, the Sea Food Watch, Sea Otter and White Shark research and educational program.

About the Aquarium I have to mention that one little shark inside. It was like he was talking to me. He looked me right in the eye and I must say, he had a sad looking in his eye. That’s something I’ll never forget. Though, the Orca living there, once slept with a bunch of children just in front of the glass. So, both are together the Mirror of Life and a Vitamin of Travel Experience.
