Introduction

Tsunami Disaster Have you ever looked forward to a holiday and when you're there it turns into a holiday from hell? Well i'm afraid to say I have. I've been in that position where I couldn't wait to get rid of all the stress and tension from work and just relax on the beach in the warm air listening to the seagulls and the palm trees swaying from side to side.
