Hotel Burj Al Arab, Dubai. Modelled as the wind-blown sail of an Arab Dhow with a very high tech twist, the Burj Al Arab stands for all that is over the top and excessive in the Emirates. It has every luxury you can - and cannot - even imagine! http://hotels.hoteldealchecker.com/
Under the command of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the Endurance set sail from England for the Antarctic in August 1914. By January of 1915, the ship was approximately one day short of its destination of Vahsel Bay before becoming icebound for ten months and eventually crushed. Miraculously, all 28 men aboard survived and returned home.
