Impressive and Tiny Villa on Dunbar Rock Opens in Honduras

1

Introducing the Villa on Dunbar Rock – a one-time private villa perched on a private cay southeast of the mainland island of Guanaja in the Bay Islands, Honduras. This unique resort, which lies about 18 miles east of Roatan, blends beauty, serenity and something unidentifiably special while retaining a casual rather than elegant atmosphere.

The 15,000 square foot property is spread across 4 floors, complete with eight air-conditioned rooms, most with two queen beds, all with private bath and balcony, rooftop bar, private helicopter pad, infinity pool & indoor gym, indoor bar and dining area and a small beach area. It is worthy of mention that sand fleas, which plague many mainland Honduras locations, are noticeably absent on this rocky island.

The resort has its own PADI dive center stocked with brand new rental equipment and three custom-designed dive boats. The island is surrounded by flats perfect for snorkeling but too shallow for a “proper dive”, however there is an area off the beach suitable for training or familiarization dives.

All dive packages include unlimited use of tanks for these shore dives, and insured visiting instructors are welcome to teach their students in this area.

If your divers are looking for a new Caribbean experience, please consider sending them to Dunbar Rock Resort!

This Camper Does Triple Duty as an Office, Lounge and Bedroom

1

Belgium-based design studio FIVE AM, have designed a small camper they call #dojowheels, that transforms from an office, to a sofa, to a bed.

When describing #dojowheels , the designers mention that it is “a mobile training facility or dojo, which is a perfect reflection of our vision on working (together).”

“It can easily change its setup to offer the user the most practical surrounding. The flat surface acts as a bed, couch and table with storage available underneath,” says FIVE AM.

Adventurers Relax in Hammocks Hanging Hundreds of Feet Above Ground

1

One century ago, fierce battles broke out in the shadow of Monte Piana in the Italian Dolomites as WWI began. The 18,000 young soldiers who lost their lives at that site were honored this past week at the 2015 Highline Meeting Monte Piana, an annual event that unites young people from all over the world through their shared passions for adventure and the sport of highlining.

Since the first meeting was organized by co-founders Alessandro d’Emilia and Armin Holzer in 2012, thrill-seekers have gravitated towards the Dolomites each year for the chance to slackline between mountain peaks, hang out in hammocks suspended hundreds of feet above the ground, and meet like-minded people.

This time, however, the event was even more poignant because of the 100-year anniversary of the conflicts near Monte Piana. To remember those who died on the field a century ago, Ticket to the Moon coordinated a special “Rainbow Warriors” session as a symbol of peace and a tribute to the past. 26 athletes came together to sing, laugh, and lounge in 17 colorful hammocks strung up high in the sky.

“Just a hundred years ago, winters up here were characterized by bombs, grenades, and lots of pain,” d’Emilia and Holzer explained. “Our idea was to re-experience Monte Piana in friendship and peace with each other, accompanied by kindhearted feelings during the day, and lulled to sleep at night by magical silence.”

Like last year, Vienna-based photographer Sebastian Wahlhütter was there to photograph the Highline Meeting, which kicked off on September 10 and just wrapped up on September 15. Highlining, he told us, is an “incredible experience.”

He shared: “I can remember the first time going to sit on a highline, and it was really an intense experience. Once you are in the hammock, it’s perfect, and you get a feeling of freedom; even though it’s so exposed, relaxing is not a problem.”

Overall, Wahlhütter says he’s grateful to be part of such a unique event. “This is a gathering and special experience for everyone participating,” he wrote to us in an email. “But the hammock action is also a symbol and a tribute to the past, and should remind us that there were also other times at this place when people were killing each other. In a way, the whole concept can also be reduced to ‘building bridges’ instead of fighting each other.”
