The world has been separated for the sake of country as well as for the sake of religion. Emissaries of different beliefs have been preached the solidarity of humanity however the message was left when religion took control of man. Baha’ullah who established the Baha’i faith on people, achieved a noteworthy change in the point of view of the local people all over the world. he had faith in solidarity and that was this message also. Baha’i faith is a world religion that has its own particular laws, holy works, and sacred day and like each other religion its own calender. However it has no pastorate and the organisation at different levels is taken care of by chosen group of people. The most important standards of Baha’i faith incorporate beautiful unity, nullification of separation of different kinds, compulsory instruction for all and striking congruity amongst science and religious truth that is considered as a must visit places for the tourists.

In this tech-addicted world, one misses personal interaction the most, especially with one’s parents. So spend the day instead planning a day trip with your father around the town of Brisbane.
Falling on a Sunday, you can get attractive discounts & deals on car hire in Brisbane this Father’s Day. Look for a reliable & budget-friendly car rental service online and choose a comfortable ride.
With the transport issue sorted, it’s time to pick the right spots where you can spend some quality time with your father.
1. Relaxing Day in Noosaville
A 2.3 hour drive away from Brisbane Downtown, Noosaville or ‘The Golden Mile’ as the locals call it, is a great place to relax and unwind. The long stretch of golden sand, breathtaking views and calm water along the banks of The Noosa River will make you forget all your worries.
You can explore the gorgeous Noosa River by hopping onto a ferry. Try your hand at kayaking, jet skiing or jet boat ride. To shop and eat, Gympie Terrace and Thomas Street are two popular ‘eat streets’ worth checking out.
Treat your dad to a pontoon boat ride or walk along the Noosaville foreshore. You can also set-up a quiet, non-fussy picnic on the foreshore and enjoy some fish and chips.
2. Wonders of the Rainforest in Springbrook
If you want to escape the city life, then Springbrook with its awe-inspiring rainforests and fresh mountain air is an ideal day trip spot. It takes approximately 1.30-2 hours to reach Springbrook from Brisbane Downtown.
You can park your car at the Gwongorella Picnic Area Car Park and then hike to (4 km circuit walk) the Purling Brook Falls. If your father enjoys long hikes then drive to the Canyon Lookout and walk the 17 km long Warrie Circuit.
Take a walk to the highest lookout point ‘Best of All Lookout’ on Springbrook plateau and pass through cool mists, twisted vines and endless greenery.
To grab a quick-bite, coffee, and tea, visit Puddleducks Café, Dancing Waters Café, or the Scuttlebutt Café Restaurant.
3. Rendezvous with Nature in Mount Tamborine
Adventure sports, art galleries, breweries, wineries, spas and gardens, the list of things you can do in Mount Tamborine is endless. An hour’s drive from Brisbane, Tamborine Mountain is perfect for active travelers who want to make the most of every minute of their day.
Love nature walks? Take your pick from Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk that offers stunning view of Cedar Creek falls, Sandy Creek Circuit that leads to Cameron Falls or Palm Grove Rainforest Circuit where you can meet tall Piccaneen palms and red-necked Pademelons.
After a peaceful walk amid mother nature, enjoy a hot air balloon ride, play mini golf, chill in the Thunderbird Park, and visit the various popular Art Galleries like The Arthur Hamblin Art Gallery & The Art Gallery Studio Retreat.
Theoretically, gap years are supposed to provide you with a better understanding and deeper knowledge of the world. Sometimes, those lessons are taught the hard way. Here are seven such examples.
1.Not everything lives up to your expectations
After dreaming about certain locations for years, it’s perhaps not a shock they don’t always live up to the high standard you’ve set for them in your mind.
Sometimes it’s possible to be totally underwhelmed by famous locations – and that’s okay. Not everything is as perfect as it seems on paper.
2.Not everyone will stay in your life
When travelling it’s common to meet people and form strong bonds, only for either you or them to move on a few weeks later.
Life is much like this, with people always coming and going, so it’s important you make the most of the time you have with loved ones.
3.Nowhere is as good as home
Whether it’s a small grotto in Scandinavia or a hostel in Beirut, nowhere you find will ever feel as comfortable (both physically and mentally) as home.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that, especially when you feel a bit trapped. However, as the old saying goes, home is where the heart is.
4.Not everyone will like you
Some people learn this at school, but others don’t find out their personality isn’t unanimously loved until they travel.
It’s nothing personal. In fact, natural things about your manner or the way you carry yourself could rub people up the wrong way. Accept it and move on with your life.
5.It’s important not to get caught in your own bubble
While home is always lovely, it’s also important you don’t find yourself getting trapped in your own little comfort zone.
Pushing yourself is crucial to personal development – and sometimes on a gap year you’ll be forced into situations you aren’t comfortable with. It’s a good thing, trust me.
6.You won’t be sure where your life is going (yet)
A lot of people think a gap year will help give them a clearer picture of who they are and exactly where they’re going.
In truth, very few people will actually discover this. You’re still young and don’t have to think seriously about your future just yet. In reality, the far more ‘standard’ environment of university will give you a much better picture of this.
7.Putting on your adult hat
While you never want to grow up too quickly, a gap year can throw you into positions which force you to act as a responsible member of society for the first time.
Whether it’s dealing with a difficult situation for the first time without mum and dad, or simply taking care of yourself for an extended period of time, the independence gained helps you take that step from being a kid to a fully functioning adult.
Not all lessons are fun to learn, but they are all important. You will no doubt encounter most of these, as well as many others, on your year out from the real world.
