This November, get ready to turn your Thanksgiving into a danks-giving at Snoopy-Con on Snoopy Island. Taking place at Sandy Beach Hotel & Resort, this rave is located in Fujairah, in the United Arab Emirates. This will be a rave for the ages. The festival will mix tropical vibes with hardcore electronic swagger, wrapped up nicely under superhero aesthetics. If you’re a fan of dancing until the sun goes down, then pack your rave clothing for the ultimate party, Snoopy Con.
The Famous Snoopy Island
Previously, the same event organizers exposed ravers to “Space Island,” and out-of-this-world festival thrown in honor of Snoopy Island’s origin story. The island was iconically birthed after an asteroid struck Earth, so the festival brought appropriately extraterrestrial sounds in the form of its DJs, who are an eclectic mix of underground and mainstream performers. For this event, featured talent includes Caleesi, Jimi Jules, Maks, and DJ Tennis. Such a blend of performers will ensure a layered atmosphere of vibes for the two-day musical event.
Be a Superhero
In addition to its superhero theme, the festival also shares the views of many other festivals in its efforts to reduce waste. To serve this theme, the event will sell merchandise manufactured from recycled plastic, as well as serve its drinks with plastic-free cups. This is appropriate, as the event is being held on an island in the Indian Ocean. The Indian Ocean is home to a multitude of plant and animal species that are often as beautiful as they are endangered. To ensure that more species are able to go on without facing extinction, festival organizers are striving to make people aware of environmental issues. This goes hand in hand with the superhero theme that is being highlighted by event organizers – we are all superheroes. Let’s save the planet, right?
Wear Your Finest Rave Clothing
The white beaches at this beautiful island resort will make the perfect dance floor for the all day and all night event. In addition to dancing, the island features other tropical must-dos, like snorkelling, kayaking, and the simple act of tanning in the sun. You’ll want to be dressed for any occasion, so wear what’s comfortable – make sure it’s athletic, light, and easy to fling off. No matter what your favorite way of enjoying melodies is, this festival will enable it. After all, no matter what you’re doing will seem magical when it’s taking place in such a beautiful location.
If you’re worried about being the only English speaker, don’t be. Most of the raves taking place in spots like these are frequented by foreigners, most of them being North American or European. The chances that no other raver goers will speak English is next to none, so connections are sure to be made. Especially when you’re in as romantic a venue as this is.
If you ultimately make the choice to participate in this rave event, then do so quickly – tickets are being sold fast. Packages as good as the ones being offered tend to fly off the shelves, so get yours while you can- you won’t regret it.

Road Trip In Rajasthan
Rajasthan is known for its exquisite palaces and innumerable temples. Crowded cities, teeming with an ever-working population and free-roaming animals, are not stereotypical images. Add to that remarkable historical monuments, sacred lakes, deserts and lovely people, you get a trip like no other. Each day spent was different from the previous but no less breathtaking. However, it is difficult to do all the essentials of Rajasthan, there are many of them and that is why it is a major tourist destination in the world. But here is an idea of an ideal road trip in Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. To visualize the travel itinerary, this Rajasthan tourist map is useful. It is possible to plan a road trip in Rajasthan in 10 to 15 days and the following tourist attractions will be included.
Visit the Taj Mahal in Agra
Agra is located in Uttar Pradesh 220 km from Delhi. Renowned for its famous Taj Mahal in white marble and semi-precious stones, millions of tourists pass through it every year, especially to see the mausoleum and its minarets. It is of course difficult to come to North India without making the detour by the Taj Mahal. It would be a bit like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. And although the tourist influx is impressive, we do not come out disappointed with the visit of the Taj Mahal. And no, you don’t have to get up at 5 a.m. to enjoy the visit. The desire to see such a completely empty tourist site should not become an obsession.
Agra brings together, in addition to the most famous Indian monument, great Indo-Muslim architectures such as the Red Fort and the mausoleum of Itmad-Ud-Daulad.
Jaipur the pink city, a must in Rajasthan
Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan, is located in arid and stony landscapes. A bit like the surrounding rocks, the old town is adorned with pink and ocher until the apotheosis of the Palace of the Winds, the Hawa Mahal. Indeed, for a long time governed by royalty, the city presents among the most sublime century-old palaces of the Maharajas, including the City Palace in the very center.
The pink city overflows with energy between bazaars and colorful markets. Also known for its fabrics and handicrafts such as Rajai blankets, you will come across many women dressed in their most beautiful sari.
Visit Amber Palace and Jaigarth Fort: Indiana Jones Palace
Only a few kilometers from Jaipur, the Amber Fort or Amber Palace is one of Rajasthan’s best attractions. The Amber Fort sits majestically on a hill. Far from being a ruin, we discover architectural marvels and a maze of corridors going around the monument. Even if it does not help the conservation of this building, it is quite incredible to be able to walk freely in the enclosure and thus immerse yourself in the past.
The Amber Fort inside and out is monumental. It’s no wonder it can serve as the setting for movies like Indiana Jones. Yes, the famous Pankot Palace in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is none other than the Amer Fort of Jaipur in India.
Pushkar, place of pilgrimage and holy lake
Pushkar is a bit like a village compared to other metropolises in Rajasthan. Life revolves quietly around the eponymous sacred lake, punctuated by Hindu religious rites. Rare thing, here we celebrate the creator god of the universe: Brahma.
The shores of Pushkar Lake are made of long steps descending into the water for daily rituals. The Indian baths and prayers that accompany the purification are repeated here tirelessly. So, the water is adorned with flower petals and yellow and red pigments, some male bodies are stripped bare. A fascinating spectacle that we observe discreetly in order to remain respectful of customs.
In the evening, the drums resound in the streets of Pushkar whose activity intensifies only a few hours. Then the reflections on the water smooth out, everything becomes calm again.
Jodhpur, stroll through the blue city and see the Clock Tower
The old city of Jodhpur is a tangle of blue buildings. The decrepit facades seem to have come out of a movie set, as the aging seems exaggerated. The deeper you go into its heart, the more the alleys narrow into a veritable maze of shades of blue. The calm of these small arteries contrasts with the rest of Jodhpur. Merangarh Fort is a bit like the North Star, dominating the city with splendor, it is a major landmark.
Further on, the Clock Tower is a place of trade and exchange where the population is agitated in all directions. I loved Jodhpur for the many faces it shows: between the tranquility of the historic center and the effervescence of the bazaars, there is also the beauty of the surroundings of the city including several points of interest to do absolutely.
Visit romantic Udaipur: the white city
Udaipur has everything of the big cities of Rajasthan, huge palaces, big temples, bazaars and human overactivity. You add lakes, architectures in shades of white, exotic gardens, small bridges, sunken steps and exceptional light and you understand why this stage is a must in Rajasthan.
