Are you flying for the first time? Well, whether it is a domestic or international destination, the feeling for the first-time flyer is a heady mix of excitement and nerves. Worrying about all the preparation, starting from packing to getting to the airport, everything appears a little edgy yet exciting. Dozens of questions may arise along the lines of ‘How to pack for a flight?’, ‘What should I pack and what to avoid?’, ‘How to approach the airport authorities?’, or ‘What documents should I keep on my person?’, and so on.

Realizing that our oceans and coral reefs are in trouble, I am not alone in wondering how we can reach people and make the change that is needed so desperately. How can we make them care? So far, we have not been able to excite people to make change.

Bathed in bright yellow that soaks in the summer sun, while offering a stark contrast to the snow come winter, Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria, always seems both welcoming and royal.

Franz Joseph, Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary, was born here on August 18, 1830, and died here November 21, 1916. He was the last Austro-Hungarian emperor.
