Are You An NFL Expert Who Can Name These Teams Solely Off Difficult Logo Clues?

     The National Football League (NFL) was founded back in 1929 as the American Professional Football Association (APFA). The league was composed of ten teams in four states. Only the modern-day interpretations of past teams – the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals – remain of those 10. Even then, they are the oldest NFL franchises that are still in operation within the same location. In 1960, the American Football League was founded, rivaling the NFL. The AFL was so successful, the two eventually merged before the start of the 1970 season.

 

     Since that merger, the number of teams involved in the league has greatly increased. The creation of the Super Bowl has also allowed the sport to become the most-watched (annual) sporting event in the US. With that distinction, there are literally hundreds of millions of NFL fans today. Many of them are “die-hard.” So, we wanted to see if those die-hard fans were able to complete this difficult logo quiz. Can you successfully match a picture of just a tiny detail of every logo to the appropriate team? Let’s find out!

Published

on

One of the most affected industries due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic is tourism. To offset the heavy financial loss, a few places like Mexico and those in the Caribbean recently reopened their borders to tourists.

Mexico, along with other places in the Caribbean, is a favorite pre-COVID-19 vacation destination for a number of tourists all around the world. So, to enliven the tourism industry once again, they created the trending hashtag, #Come2MexicanCaribbean (and its Spanish equivalent, #VenAlCaribeMexicanoX2) to promote post-COVID-19 tourism in these areas.

To further strengthen this campaign, would-be tourists are encouraged to remember their memorable visits of the Mexican Caribbean region and the different things they might like to do there in the future.

The said contest awards a lucky tourist with a 20 years’ worth of yearly vacation to the Mexican Caribbean area combined with a 5-night, all-inclusive stay in any of the 4- or 5-star coastal resorts there.

Summary

Mexico’s tourism industry comprises 8.5% of the nation’s overall GDP. Last year, an approximate of 24 million tourists visited the North American nation. Despite reopening its borders to visitors in July, the country’s roster of resorts and hotels still find it difficult to alleviate the effects of the lengthy lockdown imposed by the government earlier this year. The rapid increase in COVID-19 transmission is yet to slow down and the government aims to find more effective ways to flatten the curve.

The #Come2MexicanCaribbean aims to remind travellers of the country’s long-held tourist industry and the enticing spots that used to be go-to vacation areas in the region. It is their hope that by doing this initiative, the height of tourism will come alive again once everything goes back to normal.

International Traveling On A Budget During Covid

  

Published

on





Most people wish they took more vacations. I know I do. But traveling is so darn expensive! How am I supposed to be able to afford a trip anywhere, let alone somewhere out of the country? Well have no fear, Jetlaggin is here! Check these five international destinations that are much cheaper than you think.

MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA

Medellin is an affordable travel destination in Colombia as it’s actually its third major behind Cartagena and Bogota. The weather is perfect nearly all year long, and ever since the days of Pablo Escobar, the city has put a strong focus on rebuilding the city and attracting a new batch of young, hip, cosmopolitan inhabitants. This means plenty of beautiful museums and art galleries. Hotels only cost around $70 a night, and meals shouldn’t cost much more than $15. These low prices allow for two people to enjoy five days in Medellin for around just $800.

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO

Some people are wary of traveling to Mexico these days. But it’s capital, Mexico City, is still a beautiful vacation destination that you can enjoy on the cheap. Whether it’s hotels, restaurants, or the many art and cultural attractions that can be found throughout the city, there are surprisingly affordable options for just about everything. Just be smart and explore your options. It’s not hard to find a hotel room for a hundred bucks a night, and you can easily live off delicious street food for your whole trip. Not to mention the public transportation system in the city is cheap and extremely accessible. You could easily take a two-person, seven-day vacation to Mexico City for around $1,000.

BARCELONA, SPAIN

Barcelona is a truly beautiful city in a beautiful country. But you’ll have to be careful when attempting to pull off an affordable trip there, as the city is flooded with tourists in the summer. Hotel rates are on the higher side, averaging around $150 per night. But there are so many things to be enjoyed in Barcelona for free, particularly the beaches. As for meals, as long as you stay away from the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas area, you should be able to find plenty of cheap eating options. You could enjoy a lovely four day, two-person vacation to Barcelona for around $1,100-$1,300.

SOUTHERN VIETNAM

Vietnam still has a slightly negative connotation around it these days, but make no mistake, it is a fascinating country that is ideal for a cheap vacation. Flights will be your biggest expense, as they don’t exactly run cheap. But if you’re ok living off street food for most of your trip and taking a lot of public transportation, once you’re there you don’t have to spend all that much money. Some of the best attractions revolve around exploring, including the Cu Chi Tunnels used during the Vietnam War, the city of Can Tho off the Mekong Delta, and the Cai Rang Floating Market. You can pull off a two-person, five-day vacation to Vietnam for around $1,400.

QUITO, ECUADOR

Quito is one of the often forgotten gems of South America. It offers incredible outdoor and hiking activities, historic relics and architecture from thousands of years ago, and a bustling urban area with a great nightlife scene. Also be sure to take in the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo, the Museo de la Ciudad, and the Museo Casa del Alabado. And if you have enough time, head out of the city to check out the Cotopaxi National Park for some of the best scenery around. A whole week-long, two-person vacation would cost just around $2,000.

Breathtaking New Hiking Trails From Around The World

  

Published

on





It doesn’t really matter where you are, there’s probably a good hiking trail somewhere nearby. And who doesn’t love a good hike?! Well, ok, plenty of people don’t love hikes. But for those that do, check out this list of some of the greatest hikes from around the world. I know I’m going to try to hit all of them before I’m gone!

VIA DINARICA, BALKANS

This hike is truly epic. It starts in Albania and travels northwest through Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and finally ends at the beginning of the Dinaric Alps in Slovenia. Just so we’re clear, we’re talking about 783 miles, people. That’s incredible.

But make no mistake, it is very difficult. It’s divided into three, color-coded sections, and the first one, the White Trail, is the most difficult. The second is the Blue Trail and includes incredible views of the Adriatic Sea. And the third leg is known as the Green Trail and mostly travels through the forest of the lower Dinaric Alps.

CHALKUP 21, U.K.

This gorgeous hiking trail has only existed since September of 2017. It runs along the coast and takes hikers and cyclists through Deal, St. Margaret’s Bay, Kingsdown, and eventually finishes in Capel-le-Ferne. What makes this trail especially cool is that it also features artwork and sculptures done by local artists. Sounds pretty awesome if you ask me!

KANGAROO ISLAND WILDERNESS TRAIL, AUSTRALIA

I have a feeling you can guess what makes this trail so special. Kangaroos. Well, the wildlife in general. Kangaroo Island requires just a 30-minute flight from nearby Adelaide to reach. The whole trail takes about five days to walk, but it’s worth it if you have the time. The landscape and the wildlife, including kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, platypus, seals, and dolphins can be truly breathtaking.

THE GREAT TRAIL, CANADA

This trail was officially opened in 2017 and is now officially the longest trail in the world at roughly 15,000 miles. It includes over 500 individual trails and can be enjoyed in many different ways including hiking, cycling, riding horseback, or even skiing and snowmobiling depending on the weather. Or, if you’re more of a water-based adventurer, there are also plenty of waterways that allow for kayaking and canoeing.

JORDAN TRAIL, JORDAN

This is possible the extended hike for the history buff. It literally covers the entire country of Jordan in its 403 total miles. But, before you get too excited, you should know it takes about 36 days to complete in full. It is however broken into eight stages and only requires a moderate amount of fitness.

And if you can pull it off, you’ll be happy you did once you reach amazing landmarks like the city of Karak, the Dead Sea canyons, and the architectural feat that is the city of Petra.
