Why holiday on the Gold Coast? Its a question I am asked quite often despite our perfect weather,
beautiful beaches and laid back way of life. If you are thinking about visiting us here, I have outlined
some of the major highlights of our year below, to help you plan your next trip and to make sure you
get the most out of your time here. The calendar of events listed below is by no means exhaustive. So
for more information about holidaying at the Gold Coast, make sure you look through our website at
<a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/">Gold Coast Surfboards</a>
<strong>January</strong> The Magic Millions Carnival - A must event for those who love everything
horse racing. The Magic Millions carnival in January brings Australian horse racing to the Gold Coast,
combining the annual yearling sales with race meets, parties and dinners, all culminating in the Magic
Millions race day, where over 3 million dollars in prize money is up for grabs.
<strong>February</strong> Without any specific big event in February, it is often the best time to
visit. With school holidays coming to an end, the peak tourist period starting to die, you will be left
with more space, more time and a more relaxing experience. Perfect for the holiday maker just wanting
to wind down on a beach somewhere. <strong>March</strong> Every March, the surfing world turns
their collective attention to the Gold Coast, as the first event on the annual World Championship Tour
is fought out on our waves. Given how much Australian surfers love the Gold Coast as a surfing
destination generally, March really becomes a special time for surfers local and visiting, who find
themselves on the Gold Coast in March. <strong>April</strong> The Malfunction Surf Festival
cruises into Coolangatta during March. Are you a surfer who has a touch of nostalgia for the surfing
days not too long past. If so, this festival is for you. Aimed at longboarders and retro surfers, the five
day carnival has a look at many aspects of the surfie culture, including art and memorabilia, surf
vehicles, surf movies and a surf celebrity dinner. <strong>May</strong> Each year in May, over 70
blues artists from OZ and the US, and over 100,000 blues lovers and enthusiasts make their way to
Broadbeach to appreciate 5 days of blues music in a massive street festival environment - The
Broadbeach Blues Festival has come to town. The line up of artists and festival generally gets better
and better every year. <strong>June </strong>The Gold Coast Bazaar - Our Festival of Fashion, Food
and Fun. Established in 2007, the Gold Coast Bazaar brings the best the Gold Coast retail sector has to
offer into a carnival of fashion food and fun. June at the Gold Coast is a definate for those who love to
shop. <strong>July</strong> The Gold Coast Marathon in July has become more than a race. It has
become a weekend of fun and fitness, and a celebration of our modern day athletes who can
accomplish these amazing feats of endurance. <strong>August</strong> August in the Gold Coast is
your time of year if you love to celebrate your taste buds. The annual Tastes of The Gold Coast
Festival brings the best of the Gold Coast's food and wine together, to be tasted and feasted upon, in
Australia's most idyllic settings. It is a true celebration of the Gold Coast lifestyle, wine and food
producers, chefs and restaurants, who now count as some of the worlds best.
<strong>September</strong> The Swell Sculpture Festival hits Currumbin Beach in September. Swell
is a globally unique outdoor sculpture festival. The idea of Swell is for artists, both local and
international, to create pieces which are large and durable and specific for outdoor display. Not only
does this bring some spectacular sculptures to the Gold Coast, but it also provides a free outdoor event
for the locals and holiday makers to the area, with plenty of events organised in a spectacular outdoor
art gallery on the beach. <strong>October</strong> The Lexmark Indy 300 - Four big car races come
to the streets of Surfers Paradise, and are raced over 4 days. The Indy is one of Australias biggest car
events, with Champ Cars and the V8s descending on the Gold Coast to race around a 4.47km street
circuit in Australia's favorite tourist destination This event is a must on the calendar of all motor
enthusiasts both national and international <strong>November - December</strong> <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20schoolies.html">Schoolies Week
comes to the Gold Coast</a>. Its become an institution for Australian high school leavers to descend
on the Gold Coast to celebrate finishing their secondary schooling. Its a 3 week graduation festival, a
rite of passage, where the nations school leavers get the chance to taste the freedom they have worked
for for 12 years. Its the perfect holiday event for you if your are 18ish and just finishing high school. If
your ideal holiday isn't one shared with a city of maraudering teenages and you are coming to the Gold
Coast during this time of the year, we suggest you book your hotel a little bit out of Surfers Paradise,
which is central to the schoolies action. Anything between Mermaid Beach and Coolangatta should be
fine. And don't forget when planning your trip to the Gold Coast, you can do it all from the
convenience of one website. From <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/hotel%20reservations.htm">hotel reservations</a>, to
<a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm">car rentals</a> and <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/flights.htm">airline bookings</a>. You can even <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfboard%20hire.html">hire your surfboard</a> for
your entire holiday, all from the <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/">Gold Coast
Surfboards</a> website

<a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/queensland%20gold%20coast.html">Queensland's
Gold Coast</a> is internationally famous for its beaches. We have about a 50km stretch of sun
drenched beaches, where the water is warm enough to swim every day of the year. The water at its
coldest, in the dead of winter, is around 19° C. So its pretty easy to see why we love our beaches here,
and why so many people visit us just to spend a few weeks relaxing on the beach. Here are some more
reasons why our beaches are so popular For the Surfers From Duranbah in New South Wales through
to The Other Side (TOS) at South Stradbroke Island, we have beach after beach of world class waves
to surf. We have some of the most famous reef breaks in the world, with Snapper Rocks and Burleigh
Heads constantly producing amazingly long right handers. And it is at these point breaks that we host
the first ASP World Championship Tour event, during February - March every year. If you are a little
like me though, and are happy to trade off a small amount of wave quality, for a large amount of the
crowds, our beach breaks are just the thing. We have mile after mile after mile of sandy beach breaks.
The more famous of these beaches include Kirra and of course Surfers Paradise. Some lessor known
beach names include Main Beach, Mermaid Beach, Nobby's Beach, Tugan and Miami. There is rarely
a day where there is an unridden break or two along the magnificent Gold Coast Stretch Its little
wonder this stretch has produced such a host of Aussie surfing champions, including the current
aspiring World Champions, Mick Fanning, Parko and Dean Morrison. For the Swimmers and Tanners
The <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20weather.html">Gold Coast
Weather</a> combined with the temperate water temperature makes our beaches ideal for swimming
and tanning all year round. Sure, sometimes it gets a bit "nippy" here in winter, but it is a rarer July and
August (June - August are winter in the Southern Hemisphere) not to see people tanning on the beach,
than to see them there. The beautiful 20 - 24° C days of sitting in the sun in the middle of winter are
the rule, not the exception. And then there is our our ocean water temperature. As an example, I have
been very warm swimming, one chilly night when the outside temperature was only 6° C, in just a pair
of shorts. The water was still a beautiful 20° C. I have to admit though, it was a bit of a mad dash to the
car once I was finished... With 10 - 20 metres of sand from the water to the street, on most Gold Coast
beaches, tanning, running, surfing, swimming, kitesurfing and all manner of beach activity become
such a pleasure. Further, many local counsels have installed picnic areas, and beach volleyball
competitions are a frequent sight. It is little wonder our beaches in themselves have become one of
Australia's premier tourist attractions.

Last week, November 2007, I took a bunch on kiwi mates to the Wet'n Wild theme park on Australias
gold coast. All in all, we had a pretty great time, with a mixture of adrenaline, relaxation, things for
infants to do and things for us big kids to do. As a follow up, I have posted a review of our experience
here: <a target="_blank"

%20Wet%27n%20Wild.htm" title="Theme Parks">Wet'n Wild - A Gold Coast Theme Park</a> for
review, to help you plan you have the benefit of going. Remember also, with Christmas on its way,
what a great Christmas idea our <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surf%20caps.html"

The Gold Coast - The World’s Ultimate Beach Holiday

I had to get up early this morning and get down to Coolangatta Beach. One of my <a target="_blank"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfboard%20hire.html" title="Surf Hire">surfboard
hire </a>clients was checking out early and needed 1 <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/mini%20mal%20surfboards.htm" title="mini
mal">mini mal</a> and 1 <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/short%20boards.html"
title="thruster">short board</a> picked up before they left. So up I got, arriving in Cooly before 7am.
On <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/queensland%20gold%20coast.html" title="Gold
Coast Holidays">Australia's Gold Coast</a>, Coolangatta is about 30 minutes drive south of Surfers
Paradise, and like Surfers Paradise, has been made famous by some of the world class surf breaks in
the area. Surfers Paradise at the north end of the Gold Coast hosts the Goldy's best beach breaks, the
waves form on a shifting sand based ocean floor, picking up lots of swell. While Coolangatta at the
south end of the Goldy is more famous for the world class point breaks of Snapper Rocks,
Greenmount and the like. And these points, though not able to pick up as much swell as the northern
beaches, definately host the best waves of the area. On their given day, the waves can bend endlessly
around the points. A surfer can kick off a wave due to fatigue rather than the wave ending. Not this
morning though. This morning on arrival, the waves were less than a foot, clean as they get though
with no wind to speak of. Having picked up the <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfboard%20hire.html" title="surf board hire">rented
surfboards</a>, I decided to have breakfast at a lovely little cafe on the beach front and see what
happens at our beaches when there is no surf. In looking around, it pretty quickly became clear why
the Gold Coast in Australia's northern State of Queensland is one of the premier beach holiday
destinations in the world. Its only 7am in the morning and there is already so much happening.
Obviously the 24 ° water temperature helps, as does the balmy 26° outside, who wouldn't want to go to
the beach. In the water, there are a couple of polynesian style surfers out, with those big stand up
boards and paddle, enjoying the tame conditions with a couple of long boarders. As well as a handful
of swimmers, swimming between the flags, trying to catch a little breaker on the shore edge. At
Coolangatta beach, the water is met by about 50 metres of clean golden sand. There are already a
couple of groups of girls out in their bikinis, improving their tans. Ha, its probably their last day here
and they want to get that last bit of sun before they go home. Small groups of runners and cyclists
whizz past on the designated park tracks, some early morning exercise. And far out in the ocean, there
is a school of whales making quite a spash on their migrations, much to the amazement of many
passersby. I observe this all from a chic little cafe, where a pretty waitress serves me my latte and eggs
benedict. As a local, sometimes it is time well spent just to sit back, recognise and soak up the things
that so many other people travel the world to come here and enjoy. I hope you manage to share the
beauty of our home one day too. Life really doesn't get much better than this. And if you do, don't
forget you can find everything you need for your holiday at <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au" title="Gold Coast Holidays">Gold Coast
Surfboards.</a> Book it all from one convenient website.

 We recently updated our website with some information about Gold Coast Nightclubs. <strong>If one
of the "BIG" things to do on your next Gold Coast holiday is to enjoy our nightlife, this page is for
you. We've put this information together as unfortunately, some of our clients have found that having a
great night on the town at Surfers Paradise or on the Gold Coast, can be a bit hit and miss. So here is
some information that hopefully will help you have the best nights of your life, when visiting Gold

We recently posted an article on our website which is very topical given that the Association of
Surfing Professionals (ASP) has descended to the Gold Coast to kick off the annual World
Championship Tour (WCT), as they do every year in February/March... <strong>Every year, come
February/March, the first event of the World Championship Tour (WCT) of Surfing Professionals
comes to the Gold Coast. Typically it lands somewhere between Snappar Rocks and Kirra,
occasionally moving south to Duranbah or north to Burleigh. What an inspiring spectacle for the
surfing community here, particularly during those years when the Aussies are defending the men's, the
woman's or both WCT crowns (such as in 2008 when Mick Fanning was the mens world champion
and Stephanie Gilmour the female world champion). Despite this, if you are coming during the
competition, we really think you should ensure your trip is the best surfing trip of your life, not just
one where you enjoy the WCT spectacle.</strong> The rest of the article can be found at the
following link: <a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20WCT.htm"

<font size="5" face="Helvetica-Bold"></font><font size="5" face="Helvetica-Bold"><font size="2"
face="Helvetica"> <p align="left"><strong>The following press release was today released to many
Australian travel media outlets. </strong></p> Innovative Gold Coast business <a
href="http://www.GoldCoastSurfboards.com.au" title="Gold Coast Surfboards">Gold Coast
Surfboards</a> </font><font size="2" face="Helvetica">has recently launched a new concept in
surfboard hire, responding to the growing resistance from airlines in checking through surfboards as
luggage on flights.</font></font><font size="2" face="Helvetica"> <p align="left">November 6 2007
was an historic day for surfers, as it marked the day that British Airways banned surfboards from all
flights due to their “large size and handling complexities”. Since then, many other airlines have taken
similar action, banning boards over certain sizes, or making the cost of including them as luggage
prohibitive. It is common today that the cost of flying your surfboard to the Gold Coast is more than
what you paid for the board.</p> <p align="left">Gold Coast Surfboards, recognising this trend, have
developed their marquee surfboard hire service. You can now hire a surfboard which closely matches
the one you ride at home, for your entire holiday. The wide range of surfboards on offer is extensive
enough to cater for most surfers’ needs. If however, there is not a surfboard available which matches
your board at home, for a small additional fee and 2 weeks notice, Gold Coast Surfboards will find a
board that matches your specifications and purchase it so it is available for you to hire.</p> <p
align="left">“It’s about bringing service to surf board hire” says Damian Papworth from Gold Coast
Surfboards, “Which is why we also offer a delivery and pick up service for our clients. We just want to
make sure that the only thing travelling surfers need to worry about when they get to the Gold Coast, is
where they surf today.”.</p> <p align="left">There are a number of other frustrations travelling
surfers face, including</p> </font><font size="2" face="Symbol"> <ul> <li> <p align="left">• <font
size="2" face="Helvetica">Damage to surfboards which are carried as luggage on
airplanes</font></p> </li> <font size="2" face="Symbol"> <li> <p align="left">• <font size="2"
face="Helvetica">Hire shops only hiring out poor quality or learner boards</font></p> </li>
</font><font size="2" face="Symbol"> <li> <p align="left">• <font size="2" face="Helvetica">Hire
shops only hiring out on a short term basis (hourly or daily)</font></p> </li> </font><font size="2"
face="Symbol"> <li> <p align="left">• <font size="2" face="Helvetica">Hire shops only opening at
9am, when the best surf is finished for the day</font></p> </li> </font><font size="2"
face="Symbol"> <li>• <font size="2" face="Helvetica">Hire shops not allowing customers to travel
outside the locality of the shop</font><font size="2" face="Helvetica"> </font></li> <font size="2"
face="Helvetica"> <p align="left">The Surfboard Hire concept at Gold Coast Surfboards effectively
resolves all such frustrations for travelling surfers. “Our clients feel like they have their own surfboard
with them for their entire holiday, when they hire one of ours” says Damian Papworth.</p> <p

<strong>Innovative Gold Coast business, </strong><a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/"
title="GCS"><strong>Gold Coast Surfboards</strong></a> (GCS)<strong>, has just released a new
</strong><a href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/board%20hire%20locals.html"
title="GCS"><strong>hire purchase service</strong></a><strong>, building on their impressive array
of services to the Gold Coast's surf industry.</strong> "This one is for our locals" said Damian
Papworth of GCS, "they have a bit more time up here, so we can be a bit more flexible with the
services we offer them". The point of GCS's hire purchase service is that surfers may be in between
boards, looking for a more advanced board, or just learning how to surf. This service gives our locals
the ability to try a board under a rental arrangement, and then give them the option to purchase it if
they are happy with it at the end of the rental period. And the money they paid for the rental,
contributes to the purchase of the board, so everyone wins. For more information, Visit <a

Hire Purchase Service</a>, or Call Damian on 0432 742 560

hire</a> company, and enjoying the best Australia has to offer the <a target="_blank"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20beaches.html"
title="Beaches">surfing world</a>, I often forget just how diverse and special Australia's Gold Coast
really is. But this last weekend was one of those rare ones when I was reminded what a beuatiful life
we have up here, and just how much we have to offer to the millions of holidaying visitors we are
lucky to host each year.</p> <p align="left">As a bit of background to my re-awakening weekend, my
partner and I are recently pregnant with our first baby. This baby, a blessing though it definitally is for
us, was not 100% planned and therefore our preparations for "family" were a little behind where we
would ideally have liked them. That being the case, we have really dug in over the last 2 - 3 months,
working our butts off to pay off credit cards and buy baby stuff, so we will be ready when our pride
and joy arrives in September. As such, we have not really gotten out much recently, we've turned a bit
hermitic.</p> <p align="left">This weekend was a long weekend for us Queenslanders though. We
had the Monday free, an extra day without work. So on the friday night, we had some friends fly up
from Sydney and take us out for a night on the town. Given our lack of society recently, it was nothing
short of awesome. We started by having dinner at one of the restaurants along the classy strip that is
Broadbeach, having a truly delicious meal, before heading in and enjoying the <a target="_blank"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20nightclubs.html" title="Gold Coast
Night Clubs">Gold Coast night life</a> at Surfers Paradise. We'd almost forgotten just how fun the
night life on the Goldy really is.</p> <p align="left">After sleeping late on the Saturday, my partner
and I packed ourselves into our car and drove as little as 1 hour to have a weekend away from the
beach, and explore the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland. This mountainous area really is sensationl,
hosting some amazing wineries (which I enjoyed much more than my pregnant wife :-)), some
superbly relaxing retreats (which she enjoyed more than me) and the perfect balance of peace and
serenity to ensure we came back home fully recharged and ready to face the daily grind again.
Spending a couple of days exploring the Gold Coast's hinterland is a must if you are planning to visit
us. You will really start to get a feel for the diversity <a target="_blank"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/queensland%20gold%20coast.html" title="Queensland
Gold Coast">Queensland's Gold Coast</a> has to offer, if you include this on your holiday
agenda.</p> <p align="left">And then on the Monday, we took a circuitous trip home, stopping for a
spot of lunch on the way back which also gave us the opportunity to enjoy a few hours of fishing. We
were casting out into one of the Gold Coast's estuaries from the banks, near the river mouth and the
ocean. And as we were enjoying this peaceful couple of hours (despite catching nothing!) I couldn't
help but reflect what a fishing paradise we had on our doorstep also. I could see a sting of surf
fishermen less than 500m away, casting out into the ocean from the beach. At times I watched the
little dingys bobbing through the estuaries, finding their little secret spots. All the while, the deep sea
fishing charters where returning from their half day outings, hunting their game fish in the oceans.
What more variety could a fisherman want?</p> <p align="left">On the way home I could not help
but smile and be greatful for the life we have here. All of the above are just part of our normal daily
lives on the Gold Coast, the natural wonders we have to offer and share with you, our welcome
visitors. All of this, and that is even before we start to sell you on our "special tourist attractions" such
as the <a target="_blank"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20theme%20parks.html"
title="Themeparks">Gold Coasts themeparks</a>. Its little wonder you keep coming back. :-)</p> <p
align="left">So next time you visit, I really hope you get the chance to leave the luxury of the cocktail
bar, or the hotel swimming pool, or even the beach and explore our home a little more. You certainly
never will regret it.</p> <p

May 2008, I was lucky enough to be gifted a free night tour through the Currumbing Wildlife
Sanctuary. It was a pretty amazing experience, one which I recommend to all Gold Coast holiday
makers, and locals for that matter. Its just not that often we are lucky enough to see Australia's
nocturnal creatures this close, and this close to their natural habitats. So if you get the chance, try to
get along to the Sanctuary's Wildnight Adventure I wrote a review of the evening, which you can read

That way, you can plan your next trip a bit easier, based on real life experiences up here. Recently I
took my parents to a place one of my clients raved about, Tropical Fruit World. I must admit, I was a
bit dubious about this excursion, which is why I took my parents and not my mates. But I have to say,
I was pleasantly surprised with the day, it was well worth the trip to Duranbah on the Goldy's south.

Well, the surf is definately down this week. Its less than a foot. The good thing about this though is
that its given me an extra hour a day to think about the information I am going to add to the site this
month. Given rising interest rates, petrol prices, rents etc, I have the perfect topic. What I thought I'd
do this month is put together some information about making a Gold Coast holiday CHEAP. How do
you get here and have a ball on a budget. I'll look at <a title="GC Accommodation"

Flights are often one of the most expensive elements of your holiday. So when money gets tighter,
flights are always a good place to start when cutting costs. Here are some quick fire ways you can
reduce your airline costs, while still enjoying holidays when you need them <ul> <li>Use an Airline
Reservation Comparison Service. We have set up one on our site for your convenience: You can <a
title="airline bookings" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/flights.htm"
target="_blank">Find The Cheapest Airfare</a> with little or no hassle by getting such comparison
services to do the work for you</li> <li>Use loyalty programs to maximum advantage. There are so
many frequent flyer and credit card reward programs out there, that you can use previous holidays and
even your day by day living habits, to completely fund your flights. All you will have to pay is the tax
component of your flights, saving you 80 - 90% of the expense</li> <li>Use only discount airlines.
Sign up to their email newsletters and keep an eye out for their special deals. They have them all the
time, I get emails every week. I don't know if you've noticed, but they seem to be in the middle of a
discount war. You can use this to your advantage by just keeping an eye on the special deals they
offer.</li> </ul> When planning your holiday, its important to think ahead. Most people pay 40%
more than they have to because in not planning ahead, they fail to take advantage of the every day
deals that are available. So start thinking and looking for airline deals, at least 9 months in advance,
using the 3 tips I have given you above.

Another costly holiday expense is accommodation. And as luxurious accommodation on the Gold
Coast is becoming more the norm than the exception, finding <a title="cheap accomodation Gold
Coast"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20cheap%20accommodation.html"
target="_blank">cheap accomodation</a> options is getting more difficult. That being said, you still
have many alternatives you can look at which can dramatically reduce your cost of holiday
accommodation. Here are some ideas for you <ul> <li><strong>Loyalty Programs</strong> - Many
hotel chains and booking services have loyalty programs where patronage will be rewarded by
discounts on future accommodation. <a title="hotel reservations club"
href="http://www.hotelclub.net/enter.asp?id=52466&amp;lc=&amp;cr=AUD&amp;ru=default%2Easp
%3FDefCNT%3DAustralia%26DefCTY%3DGold Coast" target="_blank">HotelClub.com</a> has
one which we are particularly impressed with. You can use the rewards earned in this program with
any of the hotels they take bookings for. Now is a good time to use those points to help fund a cheap
holiday. Or if you are not a member, join up today so your holidays today contribute to future
holidays.</li> <li><strong>Hotel Comparison Services </strong>- Use a comparison services to get
the best holiday deal, by comparing the rates and current discounts from all the hotels in the area.
With our partners Howzat, we have put such a search engin on our <a title="hotel reservations"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/hotel%20reservations.htm" target="_blank">Hotel
Reservations</a> page. Now is the best time to use such services, as the hotels are desperately trying
to win your business, and out pricing the competition is one of their ways they are doing this.</li>
<li><strong>Accommodation Alternatives - </strong>You don't have to stay in a hotel. On the Gold
Coast we have Inns, <a title="gold coast backpackers"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20backpackers.html"
target="_blank">Backpackers Hostels</a>, Caravan Parks and camping grounds. There are many
cheaper alternatives to 5 star hotels. </li> </ul> So the point is, you do not have to make your next <a
title="Gold Coast Holidays"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20holidays.html"
target="_blank">Gold Coast holiday</a>, all or nothing. You can tone down some parts of it to ensure
you still have your annual break. And there are so many alternatives to "5 star" on the Gold Coast, that
accommodation is a great place where you can cut expense without cutting the quality of your stay.

So you've got a <a title="flight reservations"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/flights.htm" target="_blank">cheap flight</a>, and
sorted out your <a title="cheap accommodation"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/hotel%20reservations.htm"
target="_blank">accommodation</a> at a discount, what do you do once you are here, to ensure you
don't blow 12 months spending money. Naturally, you should start with the <a title="beach"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20beaches.html" target="_blank">Gold
Coast beaches</a>. In fact, you can spend your whole holiday on our beach, and not spend a cent
more than you would back at home. And for such a holiday you'd probably return home fit, happy,
tanned and relaxed. If you don't mind spending just a few dollars, at a reasonable rate you can <a
title="Surfboard Rental" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfboard%20hire.html"
target="_blank">hire a surfboard</a> off us that suits your ability, and turn your holiday into a surf
trip. Research the suburb you are in before you go. The Gold Coast calendar is packed with free
entertainment, from music festivals, to local markets, sporting events and fine food carnivals. Most of
these events show off the talent of the local producers and artists, so they are definately worth checking
out. If you have access to a car, try the hinterland. The tamborine and lamington mountains are close
and packed with wineries, retreats and natural wonders. They are definately worth a day trip. I hope
that gives you some ideas. You can definately do the Gold Coast this year, even if money is a bit
tighter

We've decided to stop being lazy when it comes to <a title="GG Car Rentals"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm" target="_blank">Car Rentals on the
Gold Coast</a>. We previously had a comparison service, where you could compare prices of the
main car rental companies. Just the big ones. To replace this though, we actually went out and sussed
out quite a number of local providers of car hire services. We interviewed our clients, our friends and
recorded our own experiences. From this work, we have now recommended our pick of the bunch,
rather than offering a comparison service. Find out more here: <a title="GG Car Rentals"

target="_blank">rent a surfboard</a>, try and book in advance, and get your booking in early. School

advance will ensure you get the board you want, as by booking in advance, if we do not have "your"
board in stock, we have the opportunity to go out and buy it just so it is available for you to hire. If
you leave it to the last minute though, often that opportunity is not available

Today is one of the 3 days in the year that I go and spend a day at Bond University, offering my
special semester long <a title="Surfboard Rental" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/"
target="_blank">surfboard rental</a> deal to travelling students. Basically what we do is offer
traveling students who are studying on the Gold Coast for the semester, the opportunity to rent a board
for their entire stay, at a drastically reduced price. What we have found, is many students come over
here and have found it difficult to find a cost effective method of getting a surfboard. So what they do
is go and buy a new or second hand board, costing them between $300 and $1000. And let me point
out, the competition to get a second hand board is tough. There are 1000 other students just like you
trying to grab the dozen or so second hand boards that are available. Then, at the end of semester, like
the other 1000 students, they try and sell the board back to the shop or at cash converters. Because
there are so many students doing the same thing, you would be lucky to get $50 back. Its a terrible
situation, one which many surfshops up here exploit as far as they can and one which we do not think
is fair at all. So what we are happy to do, is offer an alternative. We visit Bond University every
semester at Club Sign on Day and offer our <a title="Surfboard Hire"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfboards.htm" target="_blank">surfboards to
rent</a>, for less than the cost of a second hand surfboard purchase. This we believe, gives our
travelling students the best opportunity to have a surfboard for the entire semester, without busting
their budget. Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention, with these deals we also deliver our boards to you for
free and pick them up for free at the end of the semester. This completely takes the hassle out of
finding the board you need. So don't go shopping, just contact us and reserve the surfboard you want
for your semester. You will not find an easier and cheaper method of gearing up for the surf on the
Gold Coast, anywhere. This we guarantee.

clients. See, we do listen :) Basically what we have done, is add a <a title="High Performance
Surfboards" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/High_Performance_Surfboards.html"
target="_blank">High Performance and Specialty Surfboard Rental</a> section to the website. The
boards we rent out of this section are a bit more expensive than our normal range of surfboards, due to
the fact that they are very expensive to buy and maintain. The point of these boards though is to cater
to the needs of the more experienced traveling surfers. If this is you, we know we have neglected you
for our first year of operation, but no more. Now we will gradually build a stock of boards to suit your
needs, as well as our "off the rack surfboards" for everyday surfers. We started with a 2008 model <a
title="Mc Tavish Longboards" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/McTavish_F4.html"
target="_blank">9 1 McTavish F4 model longboard</a>. Its already proved to be a popular choice, so
if you would like to book this board and think you are up to us, contact us soon. It books out fast. Any
suggestions on the board that would suit your needs, let us know by email: <a
href="mailto:bookings@goldcoastsurfboards.com.au">bookings@goldcoastsurfboards.com.au</a>.
We want to know what are the boards which you want to rent. We get enough requests, we buy that
board. Its simple

Well, the swell has dropped off a bit during the last couple of weeks ranging between half and 2 feet,
but its been pretty clean. I've managed to get out 2 or 3 times and had some fun sessions. Lets hope
we get a bit of an increase in swell soon though. We have some info on current conditions at the

Whether to <a title="Car Rental" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm"
target="_blank">rent a car</a> while on holidays is a question many ask themselves. There is no
absolute answer to this question, it depends on the destination you are visiting and your holiday
agenda. If you are coming to the Gold Coast though, we strongly recommend you do. Yes, it is an
additional expense, but here are some compelling reasons to support our argument. <ul> <li>The
return trip in a taxi from the Gold Coast Airport to Surfers Paradise will cost you the equivalent of 4
days car hire</li> <li>The Gold Coast covers 1402 square kilometers. There is plenty to see
throughout this area. Its a wonderland which deserves to be explored.</li> <li>There are 70kms of
beaches on the Gold Coast. This is particularly pertinent for surfers as, if the swell is big, you'll want
to hit the southern points, if its small you'll want to hit the northern swell magnets. If you want the
best waves on the Gold Coast, you will need to travel.</li> <li>Most of the theme parks are 20kms
north of Surfers Paradise.</li> <li>Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo is over 150kms north of Surfers
Paradise</li> <li>Byron Bay is 90kms south of Surfers Paradise</li> </ul> So you see in that very
short, exclusive (Ie. there is so much more to do outside that list - I could write all day) list, distances
are a fact of life on the Gold Coast. If you want to get around and get the most from your trip, <a
title="Car Rental" href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm"
target="_blank">rent a car</a>. We have recommended our favorite operators on this page on our

Surfing: The Spirit Of Exploration

http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/wordpress/?p=49

I tend to surf at Mermaid Beach most of the time. The waves are certainly not the best the Gold Coast
has to offer, by a long shot. The main reason I surf here though is to avoid the crowds. Its a funny
thing, surfing and crowds. There is not a surfer in the world who professes to enjoying surfing in an
overly packed line up. Yet as an observation, we often needlessly exacerbate crowding through
sheepish behaviour (Ie. Following the pack). On any given day at Mermaid, there will be at least 3 or
4 peaks. Typically only 1 is being surfed, and by many surfers. I'll always have a look before jumping
in, and pick a different one to surf on. The quality of wave and the number of people on each peak will
all play into my calculations. I'll typically trade some degree of quality for a smaller crowd, but thats
just me. I'll also often walk up to a kilometer in either direction to find the wave I'd like to surf. As
soon as I catch a wave though, someone from the pack surfing the other wave will invariably paddle
over to join me. Heaven knows why they were not there already, the wave had been breaking there all
day. Obviously they just didn't have the imagination or intelligence to realise the wave was there,
before I caught one. I'm contantly amazed also by the number of surfers who arrive at the beach and
do not look for a wave. Rather they just paddle out to the closest group of surfers assuming that will be
where the best waves are. I've had days when I was the only person in the water, with peaks forming
all up and down the beach, yet an additional surfer will come and sit on my shoulder. On these
occasions, I just paddle to the next wave and continued my session there, wondering at the other
person's intelligence all the way. But witnessing this kind of behaviour day in day out begs the
question; What happened to the spirit of exploration in surfing? Where did it go? When was it
replaced by such sheepish behaviour where we just follow the crowd? Perhaps I am just a little
different to most surfers and enjoy an uninterrupted surf. Perhaps most of us actually enjoy the hussle
of a crowd. I don't know. I do think this pattern of behaviour is weird though. Here is a thought too,
for a 2009 New Years Resolution. Everytime you go to the beach for a surf, spend some time on the
beach observing the waves before you paddle out. You may find a better wave if you look, you'll
definitely catch more waves if you find a less crowded one.

Hi all, here is a quick reminder about safety in the waters of the Gold Coast. All the beaches on the
God Coast are surf beaches. Surf beaches tend to be hazardous at the best of times due to strong
currents, big waves and the unpredictable shifting sand on the bottom. We have a strong life saving
presence here. The safest place to swim is between the red and yellow flags. These flags are always
placed in the safest places to swim, you have life guards watching over you, surfboards are not allowed
in this area, and there is all manner of rescue craft there, ready in the case you get into trouble. It is
just the safest place to swim. Surfers, keep out of this area, even if the waves look good in it. You are
putting other swimmers in danger if you surf here.

This week, I have had my brother fly up from Melbourne and spend Christmas with us on the <a
title="Gold Coast Holidays"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20holidays.html"
target="_blank">Gold Coast</a>. Its been quite a treat. Despite all my efforts and encouragements
though, he is just not a <a title="Surfing" href="http://www.GoldCoastSurfboards.com.au"
target="_blank">surfer</a>. He is not interested in the slightest. And when I finally get him out on a
floating G-Board, he has had enough within half an hour. One thing he has been doing though is going
for a long walk every morning. And when I say long, I mean he leaves at 7.30am and returns
sometime in the PM hours. During these walks he is finding all kinds of local surprises. Every day he
comes back and tells me about some attraction his found that I didn't even know existed, despite living
here for so long. Its really served to remind me just how diverse the <a title="Gold Coast Holidays"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/gold%20coast%20holidays.html"
target="_blank">Gold Coast</a> is. It has something for everyone, no matter what your flavour of
holiday is.

One of my mates once told me that there is an old Buddhist tradition that says the way you spend your
New Years day will reflect the way you spend the year. So New Year's day 2009, hangover or not, on
my list are: <ul> <li>Get in the water and have a surf. No matter how short, this must be done</li>
<li>Do a yoga recovery session</li> <li>Play with my child</li> <li>Eat 1 piece of fruit</li>
<li>Spend half an hour on the <a title="Gold Coast Surf Board Hire"
href="http://www.GoldCoastSurfboards.com.au" target="_blank">Gold Coast Surfboards</a>
business</li> <li>Have an afternoon nap</li> </ul> That should set me up for a healthy and balanced
2009.

After a lengthy period with smallish swell (consistently 2' for the last 6 weeks or so) its great to see a
stormy couple of days bring on a decent spike, with the wave set to hit 6' and more on Sunday. A great
time for more experienced surfers to try out some of our <a title="Shortboards For Hire"

Something many people don't realise about the Gold Coast, is we just tip into "tropical" Australia. Our
weather, while following to some extent the summer, autumn, winter , spring patterns also has a
definite wet (storm) season and a definite dry season. Our storm season is part of our summer.
Typically what happens is we have a great sunny day, hot and a little humid, perfect beach weather.
Then, at nightfall, a big storm sweeps through the coast. Sometimes though, a storm will be
particularly large and take a few days to sweep through. This is not the norm though. So the point is,
when coming to the Gold Coast, pack some water proof gear. It doesn't have to be heavy, just water
proof. Ie. When the rain comes, its still very pleasant - hot. For more information on the Gold Coast

2009: Why Travel To The Gold Coast This Year

The answer is simple really. The current international exchange rates makes travelling to Australia's
Gold Coast a very compelling idea in 2009. <strong>For International Travellers:</strong>The
Australian dollar is currently very cheap. This means you can spend the same amount you would at
other tourist destination, but get a whole lot more. Ie. For every 1 unit of your currency that you spend
in Australia today, you will be able to experience about 40% more than you could 4 months ago.
There are not many other countries in the world that can boast this today. <strong>For Australian
Travellers: </strong>Most other currencies are relatively expensive today. This means to get the same
holiday you could have gotten 6 months ago, you will need to spend about 40% more. So you have 1
of 3 choices. a) You can spend the extra dollars and get the same international experience. b) You can
maintain your budget and experience about 40% less on your holiday. c) You can come to the Gold
Coast and spend your money without devaluing your spending money in a currency exchange
transaction. For more great reasons, visit <a

Dangers of the Ocean - Sharks

One thing I am commonly asked, given that the Gold Coast is located on 70kms of ocean beach, is
"What about sharks, should I be worried?". I always find the question amusing given how many of
these people drive automobiles. When compared to road travel, sharks are extremely benign, benign to
the point of being friendly. Let look at some facts: <ul> <li>For every person who is killed by a shark
in the world in any given year, over 100 people are killed in a car related accident in Australia
alone.</li> <li>Sure, the idea of being eaten is not all that pleasant, but to my mind, either is being
spread over bitumen and impaled on burning scrap metal.</li> <li>Yes, the press sensationalise shark
attacks (and even shark sightings for that matter) but that is because they are so rare. They cannot
sensationalise car accidents, there are just too many.</li> <li>Some people fear the fact that they can't
really see what is swimming below them, but if we all saw the "other car", all those car accidents
would be avoided.</li> </ul> When you jump into the ocean, yes, you are entering an environment
where other beings live, feed and die. Yes, we become part of the food chain, and yes we are
extremely inefficient in the ocean environment, competitively speaking. Realistically though, you are
much more likely to die in the car on the way to the beach, than be attacked by a shark once you jump
in the water. Especially at the Gold Coast, which has an extensive shark netting program. So maybe
shiver with fear next time you look at the car and think a little less of the inhabitants of the deep.

One of my mates goes skiing in Canada every year. Now, I understand that we can't all afford this
type of annual holiday, I certainly can't, but this friend once told me something that really opened my
eyes to holiday travel. He said this: "Damo, it doesn't cost me the price of an airline ticket everytime I
fly, you have to take the benefit of frequent flyer points into every single flight". What he has done is
recognise that after every 4 flights, he gets one free. So he divided the cost of 4 flights by 5 and in the
year he gets the free flight, he puts the portion of money which is due this year and uses it to help pay
for the other 4 in the "paying" years. Ie. He takes a long term view to holidaying, obtaining savings
where he can but sharing the savings over the entire cycle of his holidays so the burden is a bit easier
each year. The thing about this is that with loyalty programs on <a title="airline reservations"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/flights.htm" target="_blank">flights</a>, <a
title="Hotel Reservations" href="http://www.hotelclub.com/enter.asp?id=52466"
target="_blank">hotel accommodation</a> and <a title="car rentals"
href="http://www.eastcoastcarrentals.com.au/affiliate-bookings.asp?rfid=92" target="_blank">car
rentals</a>, you can apply this attitude to all aspects of your holiday and ensure you get a good one
every single year. I certainly do. And with loyalty programs on credit cards, you can really push these
saving a long, long way.

One of the great things about the big <a title="Hotel Reservations"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/wordpress/?p=23" target="_blank">hotel booking
services</a> is their buying power. Not only do they offer you savings through their own loyaly
programs, but they also have the buying power to negotiate special deals with the hotels which only
they can offer to their members. For example, if you are a member of <a title="HotelClub"
href="http://www.hotelclub.net/enter.asp?id=52466&amp;lc=&amp;cr=AUD&amp;ru=default%2Easp
%3FDefCNT%3DAustralia%26DefCTY%3DGold Coast" target="_blank">HotelClub</a>, you would
have received an email this morning which offers you their 2009 specials, where you get up to 70% off
the room price of many of their hotels. This offer is only available to their members, which is a
compelling reason to join up in my eyes! You can go to <a title="HotelClub"

Dangers Of The Ocean II - Rips

Rips are funny things. A rip is a current in the ocean, that runs out to see. And by funny, I don't mean
funny ha ha, I mean funny strange. If you are not experienced in the ocean, all you will see is waves
coming into the shore, breaking and crashing on the sand. You will not even know there is a hidden
current there. You certainly won't expect it, the waves are coming to the beach, how can the water
drag you out to sea?. Then all of a sudden you are out in the ocean, swimming towards the beach and
unable to understand why you are going backwards, futher out to sea. Without over complicating the
issue by explaining the mechanics of a rip and trying to help you recognise them, here is the best way
to avoid getting into trouble in the Gold Coast ocean beaches, on your next Gold Coast holiday <ol>
<li>Always swim between the red and yellow flags. If you swim here, even if a flash rips appears and
drags you out to sea, the lifesavers on duty will throw all their resources at bringing you back</li>
<li>If you are not sure where the rips are, go up and talk to the lifesavers on duty. They'd be more
than happy to explain whats going on in the water</li> <li>If in doubt, stay out. (Of the water that is)
Too many people get into trouble because they over estimate their own abilities.</li> </ol> If you play
it safe and sensibly, there is no reason why you can't fully enjoy our beaches without an issue. Most
issues on our well patrolled beaches come about due to ignorance, bravado or alcohol

One of the great things about running a small business is they usually grow out of a passion, or an avid
interest in a topic. In my case, the business was borne out of two. Gold Coast Surfboards was borne out
of a passion for surfing and a passion for travel. With the idea that others share these passions, I built a
business with the intent of providing them with everything they need, to make their surfing holiday the
best they've ever had. One of the great things about this business is I deliver the surfboards myself.
This gives me the opportunity to have a brief chat with every surfer coming through the Gold Coast
using my services. I really enjoy this part of the business as being a surfer myself, I enjoy the contact
with people who have a similar passion to mine. Also, it gives me the opportunity to get into the heads
of my clients, so I can understand what their expectations are for their surfing holiday and can
continually improve my services based on their desires. The most common comment I get from clients
returning their surfboards though, is regret that they weren't fitter for the holiday just past. This is an
understandable problem. During the daily grind we all have work, family and chores to contend with.
Time is the scarce resource which all our commitments fight over. We can't surf as much as we'd like,
neither can we spend all our time training for fitness. So it is a rare surfer who arrives on a holiday
with the appropriate level of fitness. So what is the best way to get that <a title="surfing fitness"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfing_fitness.html" target="_blank">extra bit of
fitness for a surfing holiday</a>. I believe there are 3 things you should do. The first two should be
part of your healthy lifestyle, the last should be a pre travel booster. Here they are: General endurance
is critical. You have to have a base level of aerobic fitness to surf. Otherwise you won't be able to
paddle out past the breakers, paddle into a wave or breath through a hold down. Further, with this
fitness comes a level of confidence, this is critical for surfing. I believe this fitness requirement needs
to be a little more specific than "general endurance". I believe you need to have a base level of "water
endurance" or water fitness. Surfers and swimmers have an inate feel for the water. It is very different
to exercising on land. It has a different type of co-ordination and efficiency. The fittest runner can be a
disaster in the water, burning up all their energy and getting nowhere. So you really need to get into
the water for some form of exercise at least twice a week. This could mean swimming with a swim
squad at your local pool, surfing your local break, or do what I did and join the local surf lifesavers.
Their training sessions have me in the water all the time. You need to view this as a life commitment
(training in the water that is). Get into the water twice a week for the rest of your life, thats the only
way you'll build and maintain water specific endurance. The second key is flexibility and core
strength. These two facets can not be developed quickly, they must be developed over the long term.
And by long term, I mean years. So don't put this off. Start working on your flexibility and core
strength today. I know, the exercises can be boring, but it all pays off on the waves. There is one thing
I do to take care of my core strength and flexibility. Yoga. Yoga is so good in this regard for surfers, its
almost as if yoga was invented for surfing. My suggestion, get yourself a yoga for surfing dvd and do
the program twice a week. Its a little bit cheaper than going to the yoga clinic twice a week anyway.
Also, even the simple act of paddling requires you to over-arch your back, creating a distortion in the
development of your back muscles. Yoga sorts all these types of issues out, as well as conditioning
your body. My advice, get yourself a surf specific yoga DVD and do it 2 or 3 times a week. If you
take care of the two items above (Ie water fitness and flexibility/core strength) you can give your
surfing fitness a real booster by doing a <a title="Surf Fitness"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/surfing_fitness.html" target="_blank">functional
training program specific to surfing</a>. The point of functional training is it focuses in on the specific
muscle and fitness requirements of a sport (in this case surfing) and trains those muscles in accordance
with the needs of the sport. To embellish a little, we've assumed you have a good level of general
fitness, reasonable core strength and flexibility, so you are ready to participate in your every day level
of surfing. However, in recognising that on the upcoming holiday your body is going to be using your
surfing muscles a whole lot more than it usually does, for a short period of time, we give those muscles
a fitness boost by performing very specific and related exercises. I hope this article gives you a few
thoughts about how you can train for your next holiday, no matter where it is. Training can be tedious,
just focus on the waves you will catch once your fitness goals are achieved though and I'm sure you'll
pull through.

Digital Camera Accessories: Quick Guide For Choosing And Buying

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Sylvia Howard</div> A digital camera has almost become the
only way to take good pictures these days, but after having acquired the basic camera you will need to
ask yourself if you need picture-improving accessories to go with it, and if yes, how to select them.
Accessories are not only for pros, a small but versatile set should be part of the photography equipment
of anyone with but a passing interest in the subject matter. Digital camera accessories are also not
limited to high-end SLR cameras, as there is a wide set of extras that will help you improve your
technique and that will allow you to take better pictures even if you own a humble compact digital
camera. Some accessories are better suited for experienced photo-takers, but several kinds are of great
help for beginners too. Here are some of the accessories that even beginning users should not be
without. A camera bag is probably going to be the first companion of most new digital cameras, and
for a reason. Camera bags are cheap and protect the equipment within, also making it easier to carry.
Indispensable when travelling, they are great to keep all your kit together in one place even when at
home. Camera bags are available in several specifications, from the simple hold-all to the specialized
compartmented SLR backpack. You can of course carry your camera in any kind of bag, but a padded,
purpose-made item is a wise buy. Somewhat less ubiquitous than bags, but just as useful, are camera
tripods. This item allows you to take better pictures in low light conditions, to take long exposition
photos, and to brace your camera more solidly than if you were just holding it. Tripods may seem like
a pain to carry around, but most for them are foldable and many are made out of very light and durable
aluminum alloys. When you buy a tripod, you should definitely make sure that the camera attachment
fits your brand, as that's not always the case. Steadier shots and a better result make the camera tripod
the most important digital camera accessory for many photographers. The possibility to take many
pictures, in the form of extra storage cards, is another great extra. In fact most digital cameras come
with little internal storage, and you will have to an extra card right away. Being able to take a lot of
pictures is especially useful if you are photographing fast-moving objects, such as on a safari or at a
sports event. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Watson J Phillips</div> When you have a spare weekend with
no work to worry about, do you stay at home? Thousands of people in this situation regularly take
advantage of the cheap flights with the low cost airlines and jet away for a hotel break. These days
there are lots of destinations to choose from more and more airports around the UK and Ireland.
Airports that were previously unpopular or uneconomical to use are having aircraft arrive from other
similar airports all over Europe. With the huge choice of destinations now available especially
compared to that before the arrival of the low cost airlines it is now so easy to book a cheap flight and
accommodation online and enjoy a cheap weekend away. Travelling overseas by air does have its
disadvantages which is more apparent if you do not have much time. Not all of the flights available
have suitable flight times for a weekend break. If your flight leaves in the early afternoon the chances
are that the return flight will be late morning or around noon depending on the duration of the flight.
This could mean by the time you arrive at your hotel it could be early evening already. If your return
flight is around noon by the time you get to the airport you might only have time for breakfast in the
hotel before you leave for the airport. Worried about the weather or like the idea of telling everyone
you jetted off to a city in Europe somewhere. It does sound impressive to some people unless they do
the same as you all the time. Don't overlook the advantages of a UK short break. You could still jet off
somewhere in the UK or Ireland to some excellent hotel break destinations which has a greater number
of flight options. You might be able to fly at an earlier time and return late in the evening giving you

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Anthony Herbert</div> Few things are as wonderful as a trip
down a river, especially so on the amazing Mississippi and its tributaries. When deciding on a
Mississippi cruise, you have a series of different alternatives. Besides the obvious ones, such as length
and itinerary, you should also spare a thought to whether you want a historical or themed trip, and on if
you prefer spending time in towns and cities, or in the unspoilt countryside. A historical voyage on an
old paddle boat can be a great experience, accompanied as it is by the showbiz entertainment of olden
times. A historically-themed trip will take you to the prominent cities of the area, such as New Orleans,
and will let you taste traditional cuisine, such as highbrow Louisiana Creole fare. The most famous
ships catering to this kind of trade are the steamboats Delta Queen, the Mississippi Queen, and the
American Queen, although there are others. A themed cruise on the other hand is more oriented
towards a specific subject, for example Big Band, Jazz, Civil War, and Cajun. Riverboat cruises offer
very different experiences to passengers. Alternatives are many - whether you want to explore the
customs of the regions' Native American inhabitants, or learn some Bluegrass, you will not be
disappointed. On almost all cruises, helpful guides will be available to brief you about the sights and
make sure that you will enjoy the experience to the fullest. Also, don't forget to take the season of your
trip into account. Some seasons are better suited for families or couples; others are more appealing to
groups of friends, or to those inclining to solitary pursuits. A voyage in spring, with flowers in bloom
and a great variety of fresh fish and fruit on the cruise ship's menu, will feel very different than a trip in
another season. Springtime is a great moment to visit the Mississippi with a loving someone, but also
with a group of friends. Mississippi cruises are superb ways to explore the history of the Midwest and
South. You have lots of alternatives that will please you and whomever you may be traveling with.
Regardless of what you want to explore along the Mississippi, there is a cruise that is just right for you.

Where in Australia Can a Person Under 21 Rent a Car?

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Amy Nutt</div> All over the world, there are car rental
companies that require an individual to be 21 years of age or older to rent a car. There are even
companies that require you to be 25 years of age or older. It simply depends on the company. But what
if you are under 21 and you must travel, but you dont have your own car to do it? There are plenty of
business situations, emergency situations, and personal situations in which an individual under 21 must
rent a car. If youre wondering what <a title="Gold Coast Coar Rentals"
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm" target="_blank">car rental
companies</a> will allow you to rent if you are under 21, the following can help you out: - Gold
Coast Car Hire will rent to individuals under 21. If you dont have full coverage insurance already, you
can acquire insurance through them in case an accident does occur. - Australian Rent a Car, which was
just acquired by Red Spot, will also rent to individuals under 21. - Aussie Camper Vans will allow
someone under the age of 21 to rent campervans if youre interested in going on a camping trip. These
are just a few of them, but they are easily found on the Internet so that you can find information about
them. And there are many others that list whether or not they will rent to people 21 years of age or
younger. If someone tells you that you cannot rent a car from any <a
href="http://www.discountcar.com.au/car-rental/brisbane.htm" target="_blank">car rental in
Brisbane</a> Australia because you are under 21, that is indeed false. There are many question and
answer forums on the Internet regarding this issue, but there are so many telling young people that they
need to have someone 21 or over rent the car on their behalf. The best way to find out if a car rental
company will rent to you if youre under the age of 21 is if you go to their website and see for yourself.
They will most likely specify whether or not they will rent to an under 21 individual or not. This can
also help you to narrow down your prospects when finding the best car rental rate. But why do car
companies not want to rent to people under 21? Much of this has to do with the fact that young people
are a higher risk behind the wheel. They do not have as much experience and they are more likely to
engage in risky behavior. If by some chance you find that you dont have a car rental company in your
area that will allow you to rent from them, then you will have to ask someone 21 or over to rent on
your behalf. If you are traveling for business, the wise thing to do is talk to your employer about
renting the car under their name. When it is for business use, this is, perhaps, the ideal thing to do
because the company is probably paying for it anyway. So there are ways to get around it if you are in
an area that does not have car rental companies that will rent to you if youre under 21. Just make sure
you do your research and not listen to those who say, 'Not a single car rental company or <a
href="http://www.discountcar.com.au/sydney/car-rental.htm" target="_blank">truck rental
Sydney</a> Australia company will rent to you because youre under 21.' Although this fact makes
finding a car rental company a little more difficult, it is not at all impossible. So yes, at 18, 19, 20 years
old, you can rent a car to take care of your emergency, personal, or business situation whenever you
need to. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Gloria Baker</div> Cruising is fun for people of all ages. From
toddlers to teenagers and from young couples on honeymoon to the older person relaxing after a life of
hectic careers, cruise vacations offer enjoyment and excitement to everyone. If you wish to find cheap
family cruises, then there are plenty of choices, wherever you live. Nearly all cruise lines offer specials
and programs for families with specific emphasis on children. Services like baby-sitting, play-stations;
mini computer labs, etc. are presented to lure children also on cruise ventures. Many of them combine
exclusive offshore excursions geared to attract children of all ages. Some of the select features of cheap
family cruises are presented here for your basic information. Reduced cruise rates like 2 full adult
fares for a family of 3 or even 4, if the children are below the age of 5. Special baby-sitting provisions
and monitored cribs. Family cabins with full beds or separate bunkers for children to accommodate
children up to the age of 12. Cartoon shows and cartoon magazines. Classes for arts, crafts, dancing,
music, foreign languages, etc. Game facilities like billiards, chess, basketball, volleyball, ping pong,
swimming, snorkeling, etc. Kids-only swimming pools. Kid, teen, and youth counselors. Computer
labs and computer game stations. Special beach parties and barbeque parties. With most cruises, the
accommodation, all meals, entertainment, and other onboard activities are all included in the price.
Transportation to and from the port is also generally part of the package. However, other expenses like
drinks, excursion expenses at stoppage ports, personal services like hairstyling, massage, etc. are
generally not included in cruise package. On the other hand, most cruise lines accept requests for
special diets like low-carbohydrate, salt-free, etc. but these have to be advised in advance. A cheap or
inexpensive family cruise can be found either by browsing the Internet or by contacting any reputable
travel agency. At the outset, make a decision about the destination or destinations that you would like
to visit and the number of days that you could afford, along with your probable budget. After that,
obtain at least 4-5 family cruise package quotes from different cruise lines. Compare them for all the
features, including fine print like the inclusion or exclusion of VAT, personal insurance, tips, etc. In
general, you have a choice of around major 200 cruise lines operating all over the globe, with more
than 1,800 ports-of-call. Remember that family cruises are meant for fun and relaxation. You can find
a family cruise package that will not strain your family budget and be great fun as well. Make sure that
your family cruise selection offers adequate rest between ports-of-call, where you may be visiting
several places on hectic-paced guided tours. Talk to the cruise director or the travel agent about the
specific facilities offered for the family members. Find out ahead of time about all on-board activities,
so that all members of the family, including the kids, will be well informed of all the fun to expect. If
you consider all the above facts, then your next family cruise should be within your budget and at the
same time, offer all of you unlimited recreation, relaxation, and pleasure. <div class="resource"> <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Gabriele La Gona</div> Genoa, locally pronounced as Genova
is an Oceanside city located in Northern Italy " the most celebrated part of the Italian Riviera. In the
past, the area was but a seaport and was a relatively unattractive tourist destination. But times have
changed, and so has Genoa " thanks to its rich history, impressive architecture, collection of art and
sculpture, and winding back streets, Genoa has undergone massive changes. Today, it is still the home
to many fishermen and sailors but it also has high-end boutiques, several five star Genoa hotel, and
restaurants specializing in gourmet that Italians are famous for. All these are responses to an increasing
number of tourists who are drawn to the beauty of the lovely Riviera. Known as the city with two
faces, Genoa is both a center of commerce and medieval art. It is considered as one of the oldest cities
in Italy and is the home to many tourist attractions including the Mercato Orientale, Genoa Aquarium,
and museums. It is the hub for shopping and nightlife and most importantly, of the performing arts.
Surely, a visit to hotels in Genoa is more that you can hope for! Genoa is a wonderful place to visit but
before you go, make sure to book your accommodation. With winter in northern Europe, many visitors
are flocking to the seaside for a respite to the cold weather. As such, here are a couple of tips you can
use in finding cheap hotels in Genoa. 1. Preparation is the key. Just like anything, a vacation requires a
plan. In order to create an effective plan, make sure you read up on Genoas origins. This way, you will
know which places you are going to visit and you can choose a Genoa hotel thats not too far from the
tourist attractions you have in mind. 2. Organize your transportation. You need to know how you plan
to reach the tourist destinations listed in your itinerary. Note that not because you pay lesser for a
genoa hotel doesnt mean that its the best deal for you. Consider the long term costs " sometimes your
transportation cost may add up and you will realize that you were better off choosing a $100 hotel
room near a tourist spot than a $20 per night room which is so far out of the way. 3. Decide where you
want to stay " in the city or the country side? In this city of vibrant culture, you have many options in
both areas. if you want to book accommodation, you can contact the Genoa tourist board or do a search
for sites offering bookings to different hotels in genoa. 4. Areas outside the main part of the city offer
cheaper accommodation in the form of small hotels. Many of these Genoa hotel are equidistant from
the seaport and the commercial part of the city. 5. Look for accommodations that offer breakfast such
as those located near a sidewalk caf. This way, you can jumpstart your day with a dose of Italys
famous coffee. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div>

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by James Gilbert Pynn</div> With the proliferation of beautiful
towns in Southern California, its easy to see why so many people pulled up stakes and went west. It is
easy to see why so many settlers and immigrants eventually settled down in sunny Pasadena. The city
as we know it today was born, in essence, when Benjamin Wilson became the first Anglo settler in the
region in 1841. Wilson would later become the mayor of Los Angeles and a California senator. But is
Wilson was the seed, Dr. Daniel M. Berry as the water that would grow this City of Roses. Dr. Daniel
M. Berry had come to from Indiana searching for a miracle. An asthmatic, Berry had been looking for
a suitable place to relocate his loyal group of similarly asthmatic patients. He would characterize his
sojourn to the area by say, It was the best three nights of sleep in my life. Eager to keep the area a
secret, he created the Southern California Orange Grove Association and began to sell shares for a
massive 4,000 aces bid. In 1874, the Indiana Colony was born. Pasadena would soon follow. Within a
decade, the colonys warm reputation slowly drew settlers from the East. Soon, especially in the years
prior to the Great Depression, Pasadena had become something of a fashionable winter resort for cold-
weary Midwestern and Eastern families. This migration brought with it artists, actors, and scientists.
The citys cultural wherewithal began to multiply. In 1917, the famous Pasadena Playhouse opened its
doors. The Norton Simon Museum was founded in1922 and the Art Center of College and Design in
1930. At one point, the Old Pasadena Historic District represented the focus of commerce and industry
for the entire San Gabriel Valley. Today visitors and aficionados can marvel at historic facades along
the rich and bustling Colorado Boulevard. Another remnant of Pasadenas rich history is the annual
Tournament of Roses Parade. First begun in 1890 as a showcase for Southern Californias warm
climate, the Parade has been held on new years Day ever since. Though it had been followed by chariot
races and teams sports, its first association with football began in 1902 and the "Tournament East-West
football game. Though the next game was not played until New Year's Day 1916, it has since been
firmly associated with the Rose Bowl. This rose-bejeweled city never ceases to draw settlers, students,
and artists. From the Historic District to Caltech to the Rose Bowl, Pasadena has something for
anyone. Plane, train, or automobile, however you arrive, youre sure to be greeted with broad smiles
and perfect sunshine. Theres a tremendous selection of Pasadena hotels to choose from, and even more
restaurants, attractions, sights and sounds. The town Dr. Berry built takes all comers. <div
class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div
class="links">Choose a room from any number of <a href="http://visitpasadena.com/">Pasadena
hotels</a> and plunge into the City of Roses. This gem of the Old West has been featured in many
tales of a nation eager for fulfillment. Of all the <a href="http://visitpasadena.com/">Pasadena
hotels</a> there are to choose from, you're sure to find a lovely spot to start your adventures.</div>

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Richard Robins</div> Holidays to Kenya can be the experience
of a lifetime; whether you choose a luxury beach holiday to kenya, a Kenya safari holiday or a twin
centre kenya holiday combining both beach and safari. It would seem that the british public have
fallen in love with Kenya holidays and all they have to offer. The main reasons for this are the
combination of the great year round climate, the wonderful cultural experience and the incredible value
for money this destination offers. The accommodations in Kenya vary in quality from budget low cost
hotels right through to some of the best luxury 5 star properties. Many of the hotels are clustered
together in the most popular beach resorts, within an hour or so of Mombasa international airport. If
you wish for your Kenya holidays to include a safari experience then there are so many to choose
from. There are however to main choices you need to make; do you fly direct to Mombasa and do a
short 2 night safari to the Tsavo National parks or travel via Nairobi and experience the world famous
Masai Mara? The opportunities for viewing wildlife in this magnificent country are abundant;
however the type of game viewing will be dictated somewhat by the areas you choose to visit. There is
one thing for sure, whether it is the Tsavo National Parks or the Masai Mara you will certainly not be
left disappointed by your Kenya holidays. Combining both Kenya beach holidays and Kenya safari
holidays can cost a lot less than you think. A 7 night Kenya beach holiday with a 2 day safari
excursion can cost from as little as 700 - 800 per person and even a 5 or 6 night Masai safari with 7
day luxury beach extension will seldom tip over 2000 per person. The climate in Kenya is fairly
consistent year round but there are annual rains that tend to occur between April and June. These rains
generally come in short tropical bursts and will not deter from the enjoyement of your Kenya holidays.
Kenya holidays have so much to offer and are something we should all experience at least once in our
lifetimes. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div

Holidays in the historic fishing village of Porthleven Cornwall

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Mike Carter</div> The historic Cornish village of Porthleven is
the most southerly working port on the UK's mainland. It is just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed
by new visitors. The harbour was constructed after the wreck of HMS Anson on Loe Bar during a
ferocious December 29th 1807. Tobias Roberts, a hero of the day, swam through violent dangerous
seas out to the Anson. A rope was tied around Tobias enabling him to create a link between ship and
shore, a lifeline for those on board. Although he successfully reached the ship, over one hundred
including the ship's Captain Lydiard perished. Appalled by the loss of life, Tobias Roberts knew that a
harbour of safe refuge was urgently needed. Being a man of determination he won the battle and
Porthleven Harbour was constructed and then improved at a later date. Once a hive of commercial
activity including imports and exports, boat building and fishing, trade declined leaving Porthleven
harbour supporting a reduced number of commercial boats, pleasure craft and sports. However, the
harbour still plays a big role enticing tourists from all around the world. The media gave a lot of
attention to Porthleven when it was lashed by a hurricane in December 1989. The coverage on the
television was televised all over the world, with pictures showing the demolishing storm with its huge
eaves throwing shingle and seaweed over 22 meters (72 feet). That's the height of the clock tower in
Porthleven. TV and film crews have been to Porthleven over the years, with programme makers
helping to promote Porthleven's natural unspoilt attractions. In addition, brown tourist signs were
introduced and publicised the village in a variety of ways including the Discover Porthleven leaflet
which is now reproduced annually. Of course the village received media attention well beyond
affordable advertising when it was hit by a hurricane in December 1989. Porthleven has a number of
quality self catering cottages, B&amp;B and hotels situated around the harbour, above the beach and
within the village. Many accommodate commanding views of the bay, the harbour or surrounding
countryside. The village also has a small drop in caravan and camp site. Porthleven has three Inns, the
oldest being the Ship Inn. In these you will discover good food, good ale and friendly locals.
According to local legend and the BBC the Ship has a few resident ghosts. There is a great variety of
places to eat in Porthleven with restaurants such as the Blue Haze Restaurant, a recent asset to the
village, quickly building a great reputation with both locals and visitors alike. Kota Restaurant and
B&amp;B is located on the harbour head and produces a well presented and varied menu. Both
restaurants have chefs who have a great passion for cooking with locally sourced food. There are also
two fish and chip shops and a Chinese takeaway. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

Aberdeen airport. It is a good idea to do a little checking to find the best fares and most suitable times
for your flight. If you are busy you can simply call a travel agent and ask then who operates flights to
Aberdeen. Another option is to call all the airlines and ask them if they have flights from Aberdeen.
The cheapest solution would be to do some checking on the internet to see who has flights and when.
Quickest and easiest option is generally not always the cheapest and by calling a travel agent to find
the best flight to Aberdeen for you will probably cost you more. Travel agents will add a booking fee
on top of the airlines fare as the airlines pay either a very small commission or none at all. They have
the necessary tools to find the flights for you however this is generally the more expensive option.
Calling all the airlines can be expensive and take some considerable time. This is definitely the last
option you should take in your quest for your flight to Aberdeen. The low cost airlines tend to have
reservation call centres with high premium phone rates and can have the worst customer service. Not
only could you waste time calling an airline that does not have flights to Aberdeen is could cost you
money to find out. The cheapest way to find out who has Aberdeen flights is to do some research on
the internet yourself. This is easier than you think and could be a simple as going to your favourite
search engine such as Google, MSN or Yahoo. Simply type in something like "Flights to Aberdeen" or
"Aberdeen Flights" and this will list some of the relevant web sites that will have the information you
are looking for. Try and plan your flight for a mid-week and an off-peak flight and this will save you
even more money. Flights at the weekends tends to be busier and therefore the most expensive. The
earlier you book the more you can save, especially on the busier holiday dates for obvious reasons. The
cheapest fares often have the most restricted conditions and generally can't be altered once booked.
Don't worry about booking your flight to Aberdeen online, credit card fraud is not a common as you
think. If you are worried simply call the airline direct now that you know they have the flights at the
times and a cost that suits you. Travel agents can be more useful if you flight is long haul rather than if
you are just looking for a flight Aberdeen to Manchester. They can suggest alternative routes via
different airports and airlines to get you cheaper flights. A good idea is to pay for flights by credit card
as this offers you some financial protection. Always take a printout of your booking and make sure you
use a valid email address. Most airlines no longer issue tickets and all you need to travel is the booking
reference or the email confirmation you receive. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by David Hughes</div> Zambia, home to Victoria Falls (which is
one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World) is a remarkably beautiful and diversified country. The
residents of this country are very friendly and warm, which makes you feel right at home the moment
you land in Livingstone, the cornerstone of adventure vacations in Zambia. This country claims of
having the best white water rafting locations on earth, and also allows you to white water raft right
underneath Victoria Falls. The Zambezi is a famous white water river that has an outstanding repute,
with over fifty thousand people visiting every year to experience the adrenaline rush of rafting on this
stretch of water. White water rafting on the Zambezi River also allows you to experience the best
scenery in Africa. With lovely sunsets and beautiful views of Victoria Falls at the beginning of your
journey, you will always be in awe of the spectacular panoramas during your entire experience. Every
person's tour differs, but probability is that your days will be filled with rapids like "Oblivion" and
"Stairway to Heaven", and your nights with camping on pristine white sandy beaches with a drink in
your hand and taking in the sounds of the African wildlife, which are enormously high. Many tour
operators offer numerous different travel packages. However, nearly all of these packages include
warm white water, beautiful beaches for camping, deluxe lodges, and helicopter rides on the way back.
In a country that offers this much adventure, you're likely to start having fun the minute you step onto
the tarmac. The trip may be for a couple of days, which will be entirely catered for you, or just day
trips that are somewhat faster and cheaper. You are given a choice between a completely luxurious trip
where all meals are gourmet-standard, to a basic package where meals are not included. Every package
is modified according to your needs and prior experience in white water rafting. Longer trips
comprising of seven days or more also have options for resting along the route, where you get
accommodation in luxurious lodges with five-star service. During this break you can not only clean up,
change and relax, but can also make use of the opportunity to take in a wildlife safari on a day off from
the rapids. These trips will obviously cost you more than your basic two- or three-day white water
rafting trips, but is truly worth the money, especially if you want to go on a safari but are not interested
in booking two different trips for both activities. The tour operator will notify you of the meals you
will be offered prior to your arrival. Though, mostly drinking water together with breakfast is
provided. Generally operators also provide lunch. It is advised to keep a credit card with you for any
unplanned purchases you may come across on certain stop points on your way to your destination.
Throughout the trip, tour operators also take pictures of your experience, which you can buy from them
later on. As this type of holiday requires you to be fit and healthy throughout your stay, it is highly
recommended that you get all your vaccinations, as well as a fitness test (or approval from your doctor)
prior to participating in these activities. Most tour operators do not allow people under the age of
fifteen to participate in these activities but as there is no upper age limit, the tour operators require
everyone participating in the activities to be reasonably healthy and fit. Despite the sum of money you
spend on your Zambian vacation, the memory of white water rafting on some of the most incredible
stretches of water will forever remain with you, together with the stunning sceneries you will come
across during your trip. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by LJ James</div> In the Heart of the New York Catskill
Mountains, there is a place called Nicks Waterfall House. I have been there many times and it has
become one of my favorite places of all time to ride to. There are times when the stress of our lives
and jobs can get even the best of us a little down. If you are a straight lace citizen you go to a Doctor
and get some pills or maybe see a shrink. If you are a Biker you hop on your Motorcycle get the motor
running and you head out to a place like Nicks Waterfall House. It does not matter where you are or
what direction you come from. The ride threw the NY Catskill Mountains is going to relax the stress
away from the depths of your very soul. As you ride to Nick's threw long winding roads up over and
into the heart of some of the worlds most majestic Mountains, with the Sun shining down on you and
the fresh Mountain air filling your lungs you will start to get a feeling of what one can only describe as
pure joy. As you get near Nicks Waterfall House located on Route 990v, Gilboa New York 12076,
either alone or with a group of friends. You will feel as if time and space are no longer a factor in the
Universe, and it only gets better from there! As you ride in the first thing many think is they have
reached some old time lost resort, but have no fear Nicks is a Biker bar. When you walk threw the
front door you will no longer have any doubts you have arrived at the right place. If Nick is not there to
great you himself, there is a good chance he is in his large kitchen cooking up some classic Biker grub.
I recommend the first thing you do is order an Ice Cold Beer and go sit by the large windows over
looking a Waterfall that looks as if it was stolen from the year 1492. If there is any stress or negative
emotions left in your body after the ride to the Waterfall House after only a few minutes watching the
water fall down and roll over the rocks it will soon have all washed down stream. Then it is time to
meet the locals, grab another Beer and maybe some of that great food (My favorite is the Waterfall
House Cheeseburgers) or maybe shoot a game of pool. The crowd at Nicks is a mix of friendly Bikers,
locals and good ole boys. This is a place to exchange stories and Adventures from the road. Often the
sharing of stories can go on for hours. It is easy to have what some may call too much fun at Nicks
Waterfall House but with rooms up stairs starting at only $25 a night, there is no reason to worry! Now
I want to make sure that you know when I tell you there are rooms at Nicks you understand these
rooms where created for road weary bikers. If you bring your old lady with you make sure she is a real
biker Chick because Nicks is no Yuppie bed and breakfast! It is a real bikers, biker bar and what you
get when you rent a room from Nicks is a communal living room a bed to sleep in and a shower to
wash off the road dust! One other thing you get from a night at Nicks is a renewed Spirit of Adventure
and a willingness to face what ever maybe up around the next bend in your life! I have many local
Bars that I think of as home and I love to go to and cut loose, but when I hear that call of the road it is
often telling me it is time to go to Nick's Waterfall House!!! For more info or directs call 607-588-
9891 and ask for Nick. Your Bro LJ James AmericanBikerX.com Listen to my Radio Show at

Pasadena: Roses Abound

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by James Gilbert Pynn</div> As Gene Autry once sang, in some
fashion or another: home, home on the range, where the roses and green grass grow. The jewel of the
San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena, began, ostensibly, as a haven for asthmatics. The clean air, temperate
climate, and ample sunshine, proved the perfect mixture for one Dr. Daniel Berry of Indiana. Keen on
escaping the brutal winter of 1873, Berry, an avowed asthmatic, resettled approximately 100 families,
many of whom also suffered from asthma, to this slice of the Arroyo Seco. With 4,000 acres to build
upon, the Indiana Colony (as Pasadena was initially called) was born. Old Pasadena is the heart that
beats in Pasadena chest. Originally developed to accommodate the colonys agricultural and ranching
industries, the town center quickly became a bustling business district. Once consider the "Athens of
the West," Pasadena has always nurtured a freethinking spirit and commitment to learning. Though the
area was temporarily blighted during the late 1940s, it transformed itself into a hippie haven in the
1960s and ultimately found its way to a new gentrified glory. The first home in Old Pasadena
belonged to Albert Bristol, while Barney Williams, who did double duty as the postmaster, ran the first
general store. Across the street the Grand Hotel was built and soon thereafter, Pasadena become a
winter resort for chilled Easterners. Indeed, it was as fashionable to winter in Pasadena. To better
welcome and house the influx of sojourners, the Castle Green Hotel was erected in 1887 and Pasadena
has never looked back in terms of creating an inviting atmosphere for visitors. The nearby Throop
University eventually became the revered center of science and engineering known as Caltech. Though
development did slow for close to 50 years, Pasadena has experienced an incredible resurgence that
was initiated in 1993. Now the proliferation of specialty stores, high-end boutiques and cafes has
breathed a powerful vitality into this gem of the Old West. The Hope Diamond of Pasadena, to borrow
an expression, is the annual Tournament of Roses Parade. Started by the Valley Hunt Club in 1890, the
Tournament began as a parade of rose-bedecked carriages. Today, it is a national event celebrated on
New Years Day and culminating in the now famous Rose Bowl. Both events draw a multitude of
tourists eager to partake in a slice of history. With the proliferation of Pasadena motels and hotels,
accommodation has never been hard to come by. Neither are the smiles from one of the friendliest
towns this side of the Mississippi. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

Explore Dar es Salaam and Tanzania Southern Safari Circuit

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Andrew Muigai</div> A majority of visitors to Dar es Salaam
find it worthwhile to tour Mikumi, Udzungwa, Ruaha and Selous game reserves. These destinations
comprise the southern safari circuit of Tanzania. Mikumi National Park is just a few hours away by
car, and Zanzibar is a quick 2-hour ferry ride (or an even quicker flight) away. For relaxing day trips to
nearby islands, arranged transportation via White Sands Hotel or Bahari Beach Hotel. Occupying
3,230 sq km, Mikumi carries a variety of wildlife including elephants, lion,giraffe, impala, warthog,
zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, hartebeest and eland. Wild dogs- considered an endangered carnivore
species -are found here in good numbers. Other resident animals are crocodiles, hippos, and monitor
lizards. Birds are most plentiful in the wet season when up to 300 species gathers here. Many of these
are Eurasian migrants, exercising to the full, the freedom that comes with wings. The Mikumi flood
plain is the dominant feature of the park, which is bordered on one side by the Uluguru Mountains and
on another by the Lumango range. Mikumi forms the northern border of the Selous Game Reserve and
is part of a vast wilderness ecosystem covering 75,000 sq km. Open grasslands stretch on the plains,
while the miombo woodlands cover higher ground. The park is accessible year round- unlike some of
the sanctuaries in the southern circuit. To get to Mikuni from Dar, you spend 4 hours on road or 1 hour
by air. Budget travelers take a bus ride to park gate, from where game drives are organized There is
limited accommodation at a few luxury lodges and tented camps and at 3 campsites. If you find
yourself in Dar on a weekend, this is where you head to see wildlife. 65 km southwest of Mikumi, and
348 km west of Dar lies the 1,990 sq. km. Udzungwa Mountains National park. Udzungwa mountains
are found southeast of Kilimanjaro and are part of the Eastern Arc Mountains. This unique Tanzania
national park was created purely for purposes of plant species conservation. Many rare plants inhabit
the mountain forest in Udzungwa. Animal life in the forests consists of six primate species, including
the Iringa red colobus monkey and the Sanje crested Mangabey both of which are endemic here. Lions,
elephants, buffaloes and hunting dogs are found on the plateau area, though in smaller numbers than in
other parks and game reserves in Tanzania. The park is an important conservation area for bird species,
with more than four previously unknown species discovered by scientists recently. The dry season
from June through October is the best time to visit Udzungwa. During the wet season, hiking routes get
unpleasantly slippery. Ruaha National park is the biggest elephant sanctuary in the world and the
second largest national park in Tanzania, occupying 12,950 sq. km. The great Ruaha river is the
lifeblood of this park, hosting many hippos and crocodiles, and drawing thousands of thirsty animals to
its banks. Common animal species include water bucks, leopards, reed bucks, hyenas, giraffes, impala,
wild dogs, zebra, greater and lesser kudu, and sable and roan antelopes plus many more. The Ruaha
landscape is ideal for hiking, and walking safaris are acceptable. There is abundant bird life (over 370
bird species) especially during the wet seasons (March to April and October to November) during
which some Eurasian migratory birds move in. The flora is very diverse and over 1650 plant species
flourish here. The Ruaha has the unique distinction of having plant and animal life found in both
eastern and southern Africa. The climate here is hot and dry and temperatures can reach 40 degrees
Celsius in October. The Ruaha is located 128 km west of the central Tanzania town of Iringa. It was
previously inaccessible, but there is now year round road access. From Dar, road travel is a
backbreaking 10 hours while a charter flight takes 1 " hours. The best time for a safari is over the dry
season- May to December. Then, the Ruaha River is magnetic to the animals and right at the banks, the
drama of their daily life is on display- feeding, fighting, courting and mating. The accommodation is
currently limited, but there is a luxury lodge, and a few self-catering chalets and campsites. The
indisputable star of the southern safari circuit is the Selous game reserve, named after the celebrated
Victoria era naturalist and explorer, Fredrick Courtney Selous. Fredrick Selous died here during the
first world war, at a time when Tanzania was under German rule. The game reserve is situated 500 km
southwest of Dar es Salaam, and occupies 55,000 sq. km, an area larger than Switzerland. Selous is the
largest game reserve in Africa and was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1982. Diverse
habitats cover the Selous wilderness, ranging from open savanna grasslands, to woodlands, forests, and
swamps. There over 2,100 plant and tree species in Selous. Rufiji river is the lifeblood of the game
reserve and has many oxbow lakes and tributaries suitable for boating safaris. Lions, elephants, black
rhinos, buffaloes, hippos, wild dogs, elands, impala, water bucks, giraffes, zebras, greater kudu,
baboons, and bush bucks are just some of the wild animals found in Selous. Birdwatchers also have an
exciting tour in Selous, with over 420 bird species. Just like in Ruaha, game animals in Selous are
widely scattered due to the large size of the reserve. The best game watching experience is attained by
taking a slow pace, preferably 3-4 days. Visitors can enjoy a rewarding photographic safari in Selous,
with Stiegler's gorge being a favorite spot also favored by leopards. From Dar, you arrive after a 1-"
hour charter flight or by traveling for 7 hours by road. Travel by road is not advised, except for the
most adventurous souls. Selous is near the coast and is just a few hundred feet above sea level. The
climate is hot and humid, particularly between October and March. Part of the reserve is closed in the
wet season between March and May. The best time to visit is over the dry season period of June to
October. Then on safari you can walk, boat and ride a 4WD vehicle. Accommodation is limited to just
a few luxury tented and no-frills camps. Another travel destination worth visiting in Tanzania is
Sadani game reserve, situated 50 km from Bagamoyo in the North coast. With African wild animals
like elephants, giraffes, zebras, leopards, and buffaloes, the game reserve gives visitors a bush at the
beach experience. However, Sadani is only accessible by making special transport arrangements.
Getting to Dar es Salaam, and Tanzania in general, requires visitors from yellow fever infected areas to
obtain yellow fever international certificate of vaccination. Exemptions are made for visitors arriving
from non-endemic areas such as Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. The
northwestern forest region of Tanzania is considered a high-risk area for yellow fever. Visitors are
strongly advised to take anti malaria medication commencing two weeks before travel as malaria is
common in Tanzania. Vaccinations against hepatitis A, polio and typhoid are also recommended. In
addition, all visitors are required to have a visa except citizens of some African and commonwealth
countries. It is advisable to obtain visas in advance from Tanzania Embassies and High Commissions
as some airlines may require it before allowing you to board. Visa can also be issued on arrival at Dar
es Salaam, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro international airports and at the Namanga Gate on the Kenya
/Tanzania border. Dar es Salaam can be reached through regional hubs at Nairobi and Johannesburg
and to a lesser extent Addis Ababa. The airport is also accessed from other Tanzania airports that serve
domestic as well as international flights. These include Kilimanjaro International Airport and Dodoma
airport among many others. There is a ferry service between Mombasa in Kenya and Dar es Salaam.
Visitors to Dar es Salaam should be advised that taxis moving passengers around the city have no
meters and charge a standard Tsh 2000 per journey inside the city center As for ferries to Zanzibar,
there is a choice of 4 boats- a hydrofoil, a catamaran and 2 ordinary ferry boats. Yellow fever
vaccination certification is a must before boarding for Zanzibar. A port charge of US$ 5 is added to the
boat fare. Like most of Tanzania, it never gets really hot in Dar es Salaam. Average temperatures are
in the 30 degrees Celsius range, with the hottest season being from October to March. It is therefore
recommended that you carry light clothing, i.e. short sleeved shirts, trousers and shorts for men, and
short sleeved blouses, skirts and slacks for ladies. Nudity is nevertheless unacceptable in the entire
country. If touring the highland areas of Tanzania, you may need warmer clothing like sweaters for the
evenings and early mornings. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

Netherlands, has beautiful architecture and canals that go through the city, making it a great landscape.
The people here speak English as well, so with the communication problem being resolved it is a great
city for tourists. Amsterdam is full with countless options of enjoyment, whether you like shopping,
music, art, food, or history. You can visit this place any time, but it does get really cold in the winter.
Spring is full of tulips, and is thus a best time of year to visit if you have been preparing to have a
vacation here. The city has about 7000 registered historic buildings, so taking a walk through the city
is a very pleasing experience. During World War II, no buildings were harmed as there were no major
bombings here, so the old city has survived intact and you can see great architecture everywhere. It is
well worth it to buy the Museumkaart (museum card), which costs, almost 40 Euros. This offers you
free entrance to over 400 museums in the country, and can be purchased without difficulty from the
main museums. You can use this for one complete year, and it quickly pays for itself if you scheduling
to go to a small number of museums. The most renowned museums that you must not miss are the
Allard Peirson Museum, which is an archaeological museum, and the Diamond Museum. In addition
you should also visit Anne Frank's House, which is where Anne Frank hid from the Nazi's and wrote
her renowned book. The museum card though is not valid here, so be ready to pay around nine Euros
for admission. You should also pay a visit to the Museum Amstelkring, which is a Catholic church
transformed into a museum. NEMO, a science centre, is an educational attraction that is very gratifying
to visit. The Rembrandt House, where the artist Rembrandt lived with his wife, is one more place on
the list of places that should not be missed. The Rijksmuseum is one more must-see place, where
works by the Dutch masters are exhibited. The Van Gogh Museum is dedicated to the Dutch painter,
and has a huge gathering of his paintings, as well as Monet's. You can also take a planned trip around
the city, with a tour machinist that has guided tours into the majority tourist spots. This will be highly
priced than going everywhere yourself, however if you are not interested in looking through a guide
book this will be a good choice. The Red Light District, which is actually several canals and side
streets, is an area where prostitution is legalised. It is also a place where there are many historic
buildings as this is the oldest part of the city. The oldest church in Amsterdam, Oude Kerk, is also
located here. Amsterdam has such a great deal to offer to its tourists that it is not possible to cover
everything in just a go. So, it is well worth the time and money to explore the city online before
visiting, and use the above mentioned sites as a guideline to begin your trip from. <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Robert M Freeman</div> When winter begins, everyone wants
to spend their winter vacations in some sunny and tropical places of the world. Many people don't
really have any ideas of where to go and what to do in their winter vacations as they do not have
adequate knowledge of the outside world to truly decide about what other parts of the world offer, and
how they can take full advantage of this to enjoy their vacation. For sure, snow and ice make the
winter very appealing, but for most people it's too cold to have fun so they find places where there is
still lots of sunshine to keep them temperate and snug. Sydney is one of the most beautiful locations to
spend time in during the winter break. It has plenty of sunshine, and has many touristy sightseeing
places and entertaining things to do on one's trip. It also has wonderful living places like hotels, motels,
and rest houses, as well as a lot of shopping centres, theme parks, restaurants, and other activity centres
to enjoy life to the fullest. Dubai can be an additional fun place to go to during the winter season. The
desert is hot enough to drive the chill out of your bones. Through the past few decades, Dubai has
developed its tourism industry to become one of the world's best holiday spots. Sand boarding, sailing,
parasailing, shopping centres, and water theme parks are just some of the available things to do in
Dubai. Miami is one of the hottest places to visit for vacations in January because of the ideal climate,
sunshine, and the open ocean. The night life of Miami is unlike any other in the world, and the beaches
are nothing but miles of long golden sand with the sun shining upon them. The metro zoo is another
great attraction for all tourists visiting Miami. For a lot of people who like to go to Europe, Barcelona
is on top of their list. The city has many sightseeing locations and historic landmarks to go to. The rich
and ancient culture of the city is one of the most charming cultures in Europe. New York in America
is a wonderful location to be in during January. Even though it's cold weather in the winter, regardless
the city's brilliant atmosphere makes it worth all the time spent out in the cold. Spend an afternoon in
the Central park or an evening checking out the sunset from the top of the Empire State building. The
statue of liberty is just one of the places you must go, and if you are keen enough you can go to the
torch and see the stunning view of New York City from there. For those who are interested in
gambling and trying out their luck for fun, Las Vegas is the place to be. There are a lot of highly
luxurious hotels and casinos in Las Vegas which steal the nights of all the visitors here. The night life
in Las Vegas is unlike any other place in the world. Thailand is well-known for shopping, particularly
for clothes as the assortment of clothes obtainable in Thailand beats any other city in the world. Hence,
Bangkok would be an amazing location to go to if you are looking forward to shopping this winter. A
few of the places to visit in Bangkok include the Grand Palace, beaches, and wild life resorts. <div

Should I Stay at the Mirage in Las Vegas?

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Chris Linch</div> On my recent trip to Las Vegas we stayed at
the Mirage Hotel. The hotel is owned by MGM and it is a nice property that I would say is worth the
money. The stay overall was perfect. I would say that if you are booking this hotel, just get the
standard room. If you are getting a suite, then do that. You have to go to the Secret Garden. The hotel
decor is fabulous. If you are going to stay at the Mirage don't pay for the rooms with the jetted tub.
The standard room is a much bigger room and it is $50 cheaper. Don't get me wrong the jetted tub is
nice, but I like the space of the standard room. You have between a 25 to 50 percent chance of getting
a strip view, however I am pretty sure they charge extra for that as most do. The Secret Garden is a
habitat for white tigers, a white lion, and dolphins. I believe the admission was around twenty dollars
per person. It is a really neat thing to see. You get up close to the animals, and never have I seen a
place where the trainers are so friendly and will tell you everything about their animals. Right now
they have five tiger cubs and 2 baby dolphins. The hotel decor is that of tropical destinations. They
have palm trees and such through out. The also have a Beatle's nightclub called Revolution that is neat.
They have many stores within the hotel in case you need to shop. They are located right at Center Strip
which gives you easy access to everything. There is a liquor store across the street that will save you
money on buying drinks. There is also a Volcano show but we had no time to see it, we did see the
Pirate show next door at Treasure Island. I give this hotel a thumbs up, or five stars. If you want to
stay in a good location on the strip, the Mirage should be one of your options. Like I said though, just
book the standard, I think it is more of a value when it comes to space. <div class="resource"> <div

Ice Carving Festivals in Alaska

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Ryan Morley</div> A lot of crafts endure time. They are the
tangible products of a person's soul and are able to outlast the artist on many occasions. We humans
are different from animals in the respect that rather than adapt to our environment, we shape it to our
needs. But what if your craft is ephemeral? Perhaps one of the most celebrated crafts is the art of
making ice sculptures. Unlike other crafts, the material vanishes quickly. Pretty soon, all that is left of
the craft are photographs taken by admirers. This is what makes ice carving very unique, though. That
you put a bit of yourself into a block of ice is not just an imprint of your spirit, but also a combination
of your impressive talents, too. In this case, an eye for artistry isn't enough to chisel a large chunk of
ice into a thing of beauty; power tools such as chainsaws are most often needed to carve away to reveal
the masterpiece within. This in turn needs a practical know-how on engineering melded with artistry.
Because of these many skills, ice sculptures are marveled greatly; sometimes even more so than their
more permanent counterparts. Here in Alaska, for instance, there is a World Ice Sculpting event held
every year. People from around the whole world gather to this important event to see these fleeting but
immortal renditions of talented craftspeople. Arts and crafts let people see the inner soul of a
craftsperson. Most of their works are testaments to their remarkable artistry, but ice sculptures are
more special. While they do last far shorter than the skilled human hands that created made them from
the chunk of ice, the sheer magnificence of it will outlast both object and person. Ice sculpting is but
one of the many craft works done by the people who live in the largest state in North America. If you
are interested to learn more about crafts, look up fairs and festivals that are scheduled to occur in
Alaska this year. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div>

From Latin to Spanish - and Beyond

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Neal Walters</div> After a year of Latin in high school, my
parents and I moved to a new town for us, Seminole, Texas - about as far West Texas as you can get,
without being in New Mexico. Since I enjoyed Latin, I signed-up for Spanish, since that was the only
language offerred. We had a great teacher, and I took Spanish my sophomore through senior years. It
always amazes me that people talk about taking a language class in high school, then graduate without
actually being able to speak any of the language. After a year or two pass, they can't seem to speak a
word of it. In our classes, the teacher always made us practice actual conversations, and I believe that
helped to make the language stick. I worked at a Dairy Queen and a janitorial company in high school.
In both jobs, I had plenty of opportunities to work with Latinos. I even picked quite a colorful
vocabulary. Our high school Spanish Club sponsored an annual trip to Mexico city each summer. At
the end of my junior year, my parents and I went, and it was another boost to learning Spanish. From a
nearby Junior College, I even got three hours college credit for the trip. I also discovered CLEP
(College Level Examination Program) tests, and took the Spanish exams. My university awared me 14
hours of credit just for my Spanish! I went to college already having 17 credits (plus even more for
math and science exams). In college, I didn't major in Spanish, but almost got a minor. If I remember
correctly, I had one class in conversational Spanish, and two classes in Spanish literature. I was also
involved with Spanish Clubs and Honor Society on campus. Then, back in the early 1980s, I tried
some French, Portuguese, and Hebrew, using the Pimsleur system. After trying other courses that
didn't work, I was very impressed with how easy Pimsleur was. I made two trips to Brazil, in which I
was able to "convert" my Spanish into Portuguese by learning a few additional words. Finally, in 1995
I got to live and work in a Spanish-speaking destination, San Juan, Puerto Rico. While I could have
used English on the job, I tried when possible to use Spanish, and the co-workers were encouraging. I
was there about nine months, and often found myself starting to "think" in Spanish instead of English. I
would have learned even more if I had stayed in someone's home, instead of living by mself. After
burning a lot of money on dozens of differents types of language courses, I got a good feel for which
ones worked, and which ones didn't. Eventually, I started creating my own courses for Hebrew and
Spanish, and started building my own Spanish online learning center. We are currently working with
several native Spanish speakers from different parts of the world. <div class="resource"> <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Matthias Meyer</div> Kids commonly want one thing " toys.
But as technology advances, kids are slowly having a different conception of what toys are. Say
goodbye to ordinary Lego and Barbies, say hello to playstations and such. Yet as the wants of children
change through time, what stays is their happiness when they receive gifts from you. So now that your
about to hit the streets with some holiday shopping, why don't you learn a few tips on what to buy for
your kids to make sure that you keep your children happy all through the holidays. Toys: of course,
kids love toys. No matter if the kinds of toys they love have changed over the course of time, the fact
remains that kids will always love toys. Take the time to get your children wish list and try as much as
possible to stick to that list as you hop from one shop to another. And if you even got enough money to
spare, why don't you get your children a little extra gift as a price for getting good grades in school or
for being really helpful at home. Clothes: this is the perfect time to dress your kids up with beautiful
clothes. Just make sure that the clothes will keep them warm all through out the winter season. Take
the time to know your kids favorite TV hero, that way; you can pick out the right shirt designs for your
kids. Also try to observe what type of clothes they like wearing or what style are they inclined to: do
they like skirts and tops or are they just the shirt-and-pants type of kids; what accessories do they like
wearing? Do they like hats or headbands or clips and pins? There are actually a thousand things to
consider when buying clothes for your kids " and it will make shopping even more fun because of this.
Chocolates and candies: who said sweets are only for Halloween? Christmas is also the season to have
lots and lots of candies and sweets. So when you hit the shops, make sure you satisfy everyone sweet
tooth at home. Grab your kids favorite treats and get new ones too that you think your kids might love.
As you visit one shop to another, keep one goal in mind: make my kids happy. If you know this in your
heart that this is what you want to happen for the holidays, your feet will take you to the right places.
Know the kind of kids you have and understand their favorites; share their enthusiasm and passion for
certain types of things, talk with them and learn what they like and what they don't like; so that when
you go out shopping, you wont have a hard time looking for the right things to buy for them. <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Matt Fencly</div> Holidays is one of the busiest seasons of the
year. We are not busy with work but rather we are busy with how we can make our holiday much
enjoyable and happier to celebrate specially for the kids. As parents we always whats best for our
children and what makes them happy. So we always try the best way we can to please them. But
getting things in the wrong place can not be avoided, what are these anyway? What are these possible
things that could happen during kids holidays? A situation would be a fight between the kids. This
cant be avoided because they are kids and we know how they think about themselves and the things
they own. They mostly fought because of toys. The food to be served is not yet ready and the kids are
hungry already. This is quiet a big problem because if kids are hungry they have this characters that
you wont surely like such as irritation. There are missing ingredients that are forgotten to be bought so
your cooking will not be done unless you have those ingredients. So here are some ways on what to do
when things go wrong during holidays. Do not panic! Be calm and look at the positive side of the
situation. This will help you think more and accurately on what to do than get panic. Get organized
thru managing you thoughts. Weighing things will guide on what to do. Prioritize the important
activities that need to be done first. Do the other insignificant things to be done after your first priority.
If theres a fight between the kids, stop them and talk to them individually and make them understand
that what they did is not good. If the kids are hungry already and the foods are not yet ready, dont get
panic. Try making the kids busy and enjoy more games. This will prevent them thinking that they are
already hungry especially if you give them exciting prizes. If you have forgotten things to be bought,
quickly go to the nearest store and find these. If you cant find those things you need, consider
purchasing the alternatives. This will let you save time than looking for that stuff. Things going wrong
during holidays cannot be avoided although it can be stop in some ways if only we are wise enough to
determine those. To be calm and relax in this situation is what you need to know how to combat the
things that could go wrong your way. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Marco Baumann</div> Everyday, in a United States, a vast
series of individuals, couples, as good as family groups transport by proceed of an airplane. Out of all
of those travellers, a decent series of them have been roving abroad or to an unfamiliar country. As
general transport continues to enlarge in popularity, it is expected which a numbers will go upon to
rise. In fact, there is even a great possibility which we might have a preference to transport to a one
some-more country. When it comes to international air travel rules, there are many travellers who
automatically get confused. This is because not many people know that the rules for international air
travel are different than the rules for domestic air travel. In reality, they aren't exactly the same, but
they aren't that much different either. Despite the similarities, it is still advised that you place a focus
on international air travel, especially since you will be travelling internationally. As previously
mentioned, you will find that a number of the air travel rules are similar between domestic and
international travel. One of those rules is the airfield screening process. In all airports, even if they are
not classified as an international airport, passengers will need to pass through the appropriate airfield
security checkpoints. This screening process includes the close examination of your checked baggage.
Unlike in the past, now almost all airlines thoroughly inspect checked baggage looking for explosive,
flammable, or illegal items. Since a large number of international airports not only offer international
flights, but domestic flights as well, intentional passengers are not always separated from domestic
ones. Essentially, this means that the passenger screening procedures, as well as the screening for all
luggages will be the same. All flyers are advised to remove any of their accessories, which may set of
the metal detectors, as well as their shoes. Your shoes will be sent through the x-ray machine. This is
done to ensure that there are not explosives or other chanceful materials hidden in them. One of the
few differences that you will see, between domestic air travel and international air travel, has to do
with the first check-in. When you first arrive at the airport, you will need to approach the airline
counter to register yourself. This is also where your checked luggage will be examined and processed
for the trip. On domestic flights, passengers only need to supply a picture id. This identification is
usually a government issued identification card or a driver's license. If you are planning on travelling
internationally, you will need to supply additional proof of identification. The proofs of marker which

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> Nowadays the busy routine has taken all the
enjoyment from life. Extended working hours, conferences, and activities make life tedious and
tiresome. Such a life could be compared to a machine, with a single difference being that machines
cannot feel. Hence, one requires some time off from work to relax those overworked nerves, and take
some time to have fun with one's friends and relatives. What better alternative to calm down than to
have a holiday on an island with the ones we hold near and dear? Mauritius is one such island fit for
the purpose of rest and relaxation. There are many tourist attractions in Mauritius, and since its
independence in 1968 the government of Mauritius has stressed the tourism trade to promote their
country, and moreover make it a piece of heaven on earth. Natural beauty is one of the main qualities
of the Island. There are a plenty of attractions and sights, including beaches, parks, hotels, and gardens,
that should not be missed in Mauritius. A few examples of these spectacular places are described
below. One of the greatest attractions in Mauritius is the Royal Botanical Gardens of Pamplemousses.
They are famed for their immense exquisiteness and gathering of glamorous plants. Mauritius had been
under the influence of the French, British, and Portuguese, and this garden takes you back to the
French period. The Casela Bird Park is home to more than 140 kind of birds, and is an exceptional
place to visit for those who love the nature. One more tremendous place to visit in Mauritius is the
Grand Bay. It had been one of the initial tourist attractions, possibly for the reason of its natural beauty
and attractive places of interest. It offers numerous water sports, such as scuba diving and parasailing.
Submarine ventures are also a good attraction for a lot of visitors, as one is to see the great underwater
life. The restaurants, shopping malls, and clubs in the surrounding area are in addition great places to
visit. An additional desired nature spot for countless tourists is the Chamarel. It is one of the
exceptional features of Mauritius, and consists of a scene in different coloured patches of red, blue,
yellow, and green earth. These patches are considered to be the outcome of climate, and is a must see
for the tourists who come for a vacation. Water activities are at their best in Mauritius. Fishing and
diving are also two of the main attractions to the Island. Deep sea fishing is a highly adventurous and
exciting sport, and is highly recommended to anyone planning a trip to the Island. Diving, another
highly acclaimed attraction of Mauritius, is popular due to its coral reefs. The scenery itself is
spectacular and the experience is worth every penny spent. If shopping and dining are your key
interests, then the waterfront is the top place to visit. The craft market here features local crafts,
together with the crafts from neighbouring countries. Curepipe is one of the finest places where you
can get designer stuff. L'Aventure Du Sucre Museum is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring
the history of Mauritius. It features the history, from the time of slavery to its independence, and is
thus both fun and educational by all means. The structure was originally a sugar factory established in
1797. The factory was converted into a museum after the cessation of trade in 1999. <div

Backpacking : Why is it Good?

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Joseph Then</div> Have you ever wondered how it is to
actually travel alone? Well, I know because I have been backpacking. I know how it feels to go to a
new place and learn something new, and also make new friends. If you don't know anything about
backpacking, read this article because I am going to offer you some tips/reasons. Firstly, we have to
understand what backpacking is. Backpacking is a form of low-cost travel. In other words,
backpacking is a way where you can travel around without using too much cash. But, backpacking
means that there will be no luxuries like posh hotels and shopping. If you are thinking of going
backpacking but cannot find a friend at home who'll come with you, why don't you go on your own?
Let me tell you why you should. One thing for sure; you won't be alone for long. When you travel
alone it does not mean it has to be a lonely trip. Here is the first tip on making friends while traveling.
From experience, I think that the easiest and most efficient way to make friends is by taking part in
group activities like scuba diving or riding ATVs. If you are staying in a hostel, I am sure there are
people around who travel in groups. Why don't you just ask with a smile if you can join them? Do you
have a hectic and busy life? Well, here is a good reason you can get out of it. Take a break; go
backpacking. Leave all your problems at home and travel. If you are serious about your boy/girlfriend,
you should probably take a time out with them before you leave. Another way to deal with it is to
come up with some ground rules about what's acceptable while you are apart from each other.
Backpacking on your own is not an easy task. The first step is always the hardest. You need to know
what you are doing How? Well you should do a research on the country or countries that you are
going. The next thing that you should note is money. Traveling alone with not so much cash needs can
be quite difficult. Next, learn how to manage your cash. Dealing with different environments can be
difficult but I assure you that while backpacking it may be hard for the first week but you will get the
hang of it. Taking care of yourself and also learn from the new environment can be surprisingly easy. I
always carry a guide book or a book which translates English into a native language around. Trust me,
it helps. This sounds corny but you can consider carrying a picture of your family with you, in case
you get home sick. Some people go backpacking because they want to learn new things and
experience a different lifestyle. Some go because they want to bring home a whole new perspective of
life. What more can you ask for? Gain as much knowledge by experiencing what locals do and how
they spend their day. Now that you are armed with this knowledge, I am sure you will be confident
enough to set off into this learning experience on your own. <div class="resource"> <div

What exactly does Travel Insurance cover me for?

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Amy Nutt</div> Many travelers ponder whether or not getting
travel insurance is a necessary expense that they should shell out to protect them for a scheduled trip.
Some travel insurance plans can be pretty pricey, and the fact that you may not even have to use it
makes potential travelers leery about purchasing extra protection. To determine whether or not
investing in travel insurance is the right move, you need to be aware of what is covered under the
typical travel insurance plan. Keep in mind that each individual plan from separate providers will be
different, so each plan should be examined thoroughly before making a final decision on purchasing a
plan, but here are a few key elements that should be present in most standard <a
href="http://caaneo.ca/insurance/travel.jsp" target="_blank">travel insurance</a> plans. Trip
Cancellation This is probably the biggest reason of all to get travel insurance, whether any unforeseen
circumstance arises or not " the piece of mind that you'll have when you know you are protected is
enough for a lot of people to shell out the money. Unexpected things happen every day that could
possibly have a serious impact on your travels " sudden illness, a death in the family or an act of god
(tornado, earthquake, etc.) could all cause you to cancel or delay your trip. If you had purchased a
travel package or non-refundable tickets you could conceivably be out quite a bit of money, but with
the purchase of a travel insurance plan you could be protected for at least the majority of the cost of
your trip. Medical Expenses Many medical providers don't cover expenses incurred on international
travel, with the purchase of an appropriate travel insurance plan you and your fellow travelers could be
covered for most emergency medical treatments while on vacation due to accidents illnesses or other
injuries. Emergency medical care costs can very easily run into the thousands of dollars, so if your
regular insurance provider won't extend coverage during travel or if you don't have a regular medical
insurance provider, travel insurance that covers medical expenses can be a necessity. Lost or Delayed
Baggage Most travel insurance plans provide reimbursement for necessities like clothing and toiletries
in the event that your bags are lost or delayed. This can be especially important to those travelers who
have plans or business meeting shortly after they are scheduled to land. Rather than worry about what
they are going to do in order to get ready for whatever their schedule has in store for them, travelers
can quickly get the items they need and feel secure that they will be reimbursed for their purchases.
Accommodations Incurred during Unexpected Delays If your trip is delayed due to an illness or injury
to yourself or a travel companion, or for any number of other unexpected reasons covered by your
selected plan you may be eligible for reimbursement for accommodations and expenses for other
necessities during your extended stay. Depending upon what company you choose to go with and
which level of coverage you decide to opt for there may be many other ways to customize the coverage
to suit your particular needs. If you've never had a single problem on a business trip or vacation and
you feel totally confident that your future travels will all go off without a hitch then you don't
necessarily need to purchase travelers insurance, but if you want the piece of mind that you'll be
protected against many of the unfortunately and unforeseeable problems that could occur and inhibit
your travels then purchasing a plan is a sound investment. It may not be something that you'll have to
use, but if you need it you'll be very grateful that it's there. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

Is Vertigo Keeping You from Flying?

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Christian Goodman</div> I travel extensively - primarily by air.
That allows me to meet and talk with a number of different people. Vertigo comes up quite a bit. I'm
sure this is due to my profession. People have explained that travel tends to either cause a vertigo
attack or worsens it. Vertigo is the feeling that objects are spinning or that the person is in motion
when neither is actually occurring. Vertigo can be accompanied with dizziness, although not all
episodes of dizziness or light headedness alone indicate that vertigo is present. Inner ear disorders
usually cause vertigo. However disorders with the brainstem, cerebellum or vestibular nerve can also
be responsible. Vertigo is still often associated with the Alfred Hitchcock movie which involved the
fear of heights. This phobia simply happens to have similar symptoms to vertigo (dizziness). Ironically
though, most people with a fear of heights don't even have a problem with flying. A common type of
vertigo is BPPV. Head movement tends to bring this on. Symptons can include nausea and possibly
vomiting. Exercises have proven helpful in some cases. Travel does not tend to spur BPPV, but rather
head positioning when sitting (such as on the plane seat.) Another trigger associated with temporary
vertigo is alcohol. Since it can spur an attack, it's best to stay away from it when travelling. Another
less common form of vertigo is psychogenic. Panic and anxiety disorders are responsible for this and
of course travelling can bring on an attack or make it worse. Motion sickness is actually responsible
for the discomfort most travellers suffer. The parts of the inner ear responsible for balance can be
affected with motion. Boats are well known for bringing this on but auto and plane travel can do this as
well. As with vertigo, symptoms occurs quickly. Nausea, dizziness, headaches, vomiting and cold
sweats tend to be present. Keeping a stead gaze and still head can help. Refrain from drinking,
smoking and reading can also help prevent motion sickness. Fresh air is also very helpful. A number
of over the counter drugs are popular for treating and preventing motion sickness. However, as with all
drugs, side effects tend to occur as well. An all natural treatment is my Dizziness and Vertigo
Program. It is very successful at curing and alleviating vertigo and dizziness. It is also very effective
for motion sickness. EL331001 <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

Be Safe When Choosing Your Locations

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Guy Morris</div> Many times when people travel, they never
take into consideration all the different things they can see when exploring, what kind of special deal
they can get through a travel agents, or just going to locations that they have heard about. In fact, many
times when people travel it is on a whim and never planned thoroughly. One thing that many people
find out is that traveling is one of the most exciting things that one can do. Not only can you discover
some of the most exciting beaches, you can also see some of the most beautiful, natural landscaping.
However, when going to any "new" place there is always a risk of getting into trouble, especially if
you are not familiar with the environment or surroundings. Having trouble such as getting lost or car
trouble can be very simple in our hometown, but in a strange city or country, it can be very frightening
as well as costly. Lucky for you, there are many tips that you can use to make traveling easier! 1.
Always make sure that you know the area that you will be traveling, as well as knowing all the laws,
knowing all the best locations for tourists, and what type of people you will be dealing with. Going
somewhere and not knowing what to expect can be the worst thing you can do! Everyone loves
suspense and surprises, but being out of town is not the place you want to have to deal with the
"unknown". 2. Even though in most cases you want to travel alone, it is important that you try to
always travel with at least one other person. If you have to travel alone, keep in contact with someone
back home. Let them know where you will be and when you expect to return. Also, give them a
number they can call if they don't hear from you when they should. 3. It is very important that you plan
your vacation; as it will give everyone enough time to decide what they want to do immediately upon
arriving and what to hold off on. As well as having plenty of time for planning your itinerary, you will
also be able to plan your safety precautions. 4. You should always plan for the unexpected, such as
emergencies. It is always better to be prepared than to be unprepared! Always have extra money set
aside in case of emergency. 5. When booking your hotel room, choose ones that are well equipped with
safety equipment. You never know when you're going to need it! It's a good idea to check out the
reputation of hotels before you commit to them. If they seem to be cheaper than all the others are, there
may be a reason. Whether you are a consistent traveler or traveling for the first time, it is best to keep
in your mind the importance of safe traveling. When thinking safe, you usually are safe! <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Dominic</div> In winter and summer, most vactioners love
spending time in the great outdoors, including the mountains. During the winter, lots of skiing lovers
will clamor to the mountains and cozy up in a mountain cabin for rent for a weekend, or even a full
week trip. And during the summer, you will see many families in mountain cabins for rent that are
enjoying hiking, fishing, and simply the summer weather. No matter the reason for vacationing in the
mountains, many people find it a more pleasant vacation if they can find mountain cabins for rent
instead of having to camp in a tent or a trailer. Now of course not everyone is inclined to stay away
from camping, but for a family with small children, it can just be easier using a cabin during their stay.
The children will feel more at home and wont miss their essentials including a television. Because
mountain cabins have gotten so popular with people, many people tend to purchase one in hopes of
making it an investment that will prosper. Owning a mountain cabin comes with all kinds of benefits.
The first of which is the fact that when you want to go on a trip, you have a place to lay your head
anytime you please. It becomes a home away from their home. Even if you rent your mountain cabin
out to tourist, you can certainly reserve the space for yourself anytime you wish to visit it. And while
renting the cabin to others while you are not using it, you are making enough money to cover expenses,
almost as if your vacations are paid for by others. Mountain cabins for rent are usually not cheap, so
renting the mountain cabin to even a handful of tourist a year should pay for the cabin and still put a
little extra money in your wallet. So in the end, if you are someone who likes to visit the big
mountains during vacation time, and you use mountain cabins for rent to do so, you may want to look
into purchasing your own mountain cabin. You can then make your mountain cabins for rent produce
an income for you by renting it out to others when you are not using it. This offers you flexibility when
it comes to vacationing yourself; it also offers a great investment that can be enjoyed for many years to
come. You can also use your cabin as collateral for loans you may need in the future, making your
cabins for rent investment more than worth your time, trouble, and money. The mountains are a
majestic, peaceful place to visit. With all of the mountain cabins for rent at your disposal youll have no
trouble finding the one that feels just like home to you. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

The Essential Needs for a Backpacking or Hiking Trip

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Shawn Stanley</div> Backpacking and hiking are two of the
most thrilling choices in outdoor activities. These sports are being chosen by more and more people
every year as a means of relaxation and physical fitness. Even families are getting in to the
backpacking and hiking action. But, for the newer backpacking or hiking person, there are a few items
that are required to stay safe and secure while backpacking. The suns rays. The sun can be very
damaging to many parts of the body. When backpacking or hiking, the sun can be in contact with the
skin and eyes the entire day spent walking. Sunscreen that is waterproof and of an SPF of 30 or more
can provide just enough protection for the skin. The eyes, on the other hand, are the body parts left
unprotected. Including a pair or two of sunglasses in every pack will help to make the trip easy to see
and safer for the eyes. Safety First. Many people forget about safety when backpacking or hiking, but
there can be problems and when there are, a whistle can help. Depending on where you are
backpacking or hiking, a whistle with no "pea" (the small ball in the center) may be the best choice. If
the backpacking or hiking is taking place during cold months, the "pea" could freeze. Along those
same lines, a plastic whistle will be sure to never stick to your lips in the cold. The fluid of life. Water
will be the largest part of the backpacking and hiking trip. With constant movement comes the constant
need for water. Every team member will be packing water for the trip, but for safety, a constant water
supply will need to be assured. An outdoor water filtration device can turn any water into drinkable
water in a few minutes. Starting a fire. For those overnight trips, a firestarter or set of waterproof
matches are ideal for a little warmth and a warm meal. But, many backpacking and hiking trips are
only day trips and the backpacking and hiking team feel they may not need these things. One the
contrary, as a safety measure, every member should include a way to start a fire in their packing
essentials. Treating Injuries. Even though every backpacking or hiking trip would ideally be without
injury, no one can assure this will happen. A first aid kit needs to be prepared for every pack, not just
one. Carrying an individual first aid kit is the right choice just in case one of the people backpacking or
hiking gets separated from the rest of the group. The first aid kit should include a pocket knife and
pocket tool set, as well as the general first aid supplies. Know Your Way. A map and a compass are
two things that no backpacking or hiking can do without. These will keep you going in the right
direction when things get turned around. Each pack should have their own set for guidance. On a more
advanced tip, many backpacking or hiking trips are being centered on the new GPS technologies
making getting lost even more difficult. Backpacking and hiking are two fantastic ways to spend some
time out of doors. When properly prepared, a backpacking and hiking team can enjoy their time and
experience and safe and fun filled trip together. These essentials are just a few of the things that are
needed for each and every backpacking or hiking trip. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by reklicom</div> A very popular holiday destination for Brits in
the summer of 2007 was Menorca. Menorca is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean
sea, southeast of Spain. Menorca is well known as a smaller, much more private holiday spot than
neighboring Majorca. Majorca is much more densely populated than Menorca with many celebrities
owning homes there such as Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta Jones and Antonio Banderas.
Both Majorca and Menorca have a lot to offer their annual visitors. Where Majorca offers a bustling
night life, white beaches and celebrities; Menorca provides more privacy, quiet coves and shaded
areas. Self-catering vacations allow children the freedom to play. Excursions can be planned around
their exercise and activity needs. Parents are free to relax knowing their children have ample
opportunity to explore their rental villa without concerns of strangers. It is relatively easy to plan a
self-catering holiday. The primary task is research. If at all possible, try to plan your vacation as early
as possible. The best time is at least six months before you plan to leave. Choose your ideal destination
and research the cost of staying there. This will give you the necessary information to plan your trip.
Leading travel websites are reporting Spain has benefited greatly from the increase in British
tourists.Surprising to many people is that Spain also attracts skiers.Spain's most successful ski resorts
are in the Pyrenees Mountains. Many snow-loving Brits have booked ski holidays in Spain for the
2007 - 2008 seasons. Holiday resorts for swingers and tailor made swinging holidays are becoming
more and more popular as the concept of living the swingers lifestyle is gaining social acceptance and
respectability. Due to Spain having the second highest altitude in Europe, it is also the perfect holiday
destination for those who enjoy winter sports such as skiing or snowboarding. There is a wide selection
of ski resorts in the Pyrenees Mountains, Sierra Nevada and the Cantabrian Mountains. Spain has long
been praised for its exhilarating and active night life, with visitors enjoying the bars and night clubs in
such cities as Barcelona, Valencia, Seville and especially Madrid. As well as the above hotspots, Spain
is also home to Benicassim. The four day festival has soared in popularity over the years because of
the guaranteed sun, and all night acts. To top it off the festival ends with a huge beach party. Spain has
much more to offer than an excellent night life though. It presents a strong sense of its own identity
ornamented with an astonishing religious history which has resulted in a country rich with breathtaking
cathedrals and palaces, gorgeous rolling landscapes and a vibrant culture of art, dance, and outstanding
architecture. The size of your rental property depends entirely on your travel budget. Standard villas
are available for smaller families or intimate groups. Large self-catering facilities are available to
accommodate a large number of guests. Many self-catering villas have panoramic views or personal
swimming pools. They come with their own kitchen facilities and living areas. This means that you can
cook familiar foods whenever you like. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Jane Farasi</div> Going on safari in Africa is extremely
exciting and your adventure will be even more enhanced and comfortable if you start off with the right
safari equipment. You will find variation in what you need depending on whether your holiday
involves trekking, camping, climbing the mountains, the beach or a wildlife safari. What You
Basically Need - luggage and a soft backpack - a sleeping bag if camping or hiking - anti-malarial
tablets, mosquito net, insect repellent - with your personal toiletries include sun- block or sun-tan
lotion, wet wipes and lip balm - an important piece of safari equipment has always been a flashlight -
camera and camera equipment - field glasses and sun glasses - scissors and/or a pen knife - water for
drinking and water purification kit Safari clothing and footwear The thing to remember about clothing
is to have it in light, absorbent, wash and wear materials. Colors should generally not be too loud such
as red, and white does not go too well with the adventure or the dust. Brown, beige, khakis are good
safari colors. Try and avoid jungle fatigues. Along with the shorts, tee-shirts, sun dresses and safari
trousers, be sure to bring with you - one warm and one waterproof jacket - a good sun-hat or two -
walking shoes that are comfortable - a pair of sandals/thongs and bathroom slippers - a bathing suit
Miscellaneous Do not forget your prescribed medicines in good supply, as well as pain killers,
vitamins and antibiotics if you need them. Pack a small first- aid kit. In general, this is the basic safari
equipment. Your travel adviser will let you know if you need more than this depending on your
specific safari. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div>

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by David Hughes</div> Antigua is one of the islands that make up
Antigua and Barbuda. It is a tropical heaven with beautiful beaches, long coastline, and a stunning
physical landscape. While in Antigua, you might desire to take in other than just the sun to be able to
enjoy in reality the islands culture and all the attractions offered by it. Apart from its physical beauty
and white sandy beaches, the island has much more to offer for example its sport, rich culture, tourist
attractions, and mouth watering cuisines. Cricket is the sport on the island. You can catch a game by
going over to the Recreation Ground in St. John's or watch one as it happens on the beach. If you are
the sporting kind, feel free to ask to join in and enjoy the fun from a firsthand perspective. From the
end of July to the start of August there is Carnival which takes place in the Recreation Ground and is
well worth being a part of. You should also visit Nelson's Dockyard which is an old English dockyard
from colonial times. You could also get a registration of scuba diving lessons while in Antigua as it is
fairly reasonable as compared to any other place. If you are interested in sailing across the island then
you can easily hire a boat or dinghy. On Sunday nights, the place to party is at Shirley Heights
Lookout, an ancient British Fort close to Falmouth with Antiguan music playing. At this point, you are
able to catch a beautiful view of the sunset if you get there before 4 pm. The food is normally served
around seven, but there is a payment required for entrance, so make sure you have your wallet with
you. When you are in Antigua, eat like the Antiguan's. Seafood is the best thing to go for when you
are on the island. Indisputably accepted, there is a countless variety of seafood available here and you
will fun trying it. In addition you should try the large number of tropical fruits that are available on the
island. The national dish, called Fungi (Foun-gee) and Saltfish are mouth watering. You can also get
all further main cuisines including American, British, and Italian etc on the island. There are a great
number of local drinks that can go well with your food. As there is a large variety in fruits, you can
find a number of fruit juices like Pineapple, Guava, Mauby, Seamoss, Passon fruit, and Hibiscus.
Yummy cocktails are also available here without any trouble. You can also obtain local liquor like
Wadadli, English Harbour Run, or regional beer like Carib beer. International brands are easily
available as well including Smirnoff and Heineken. The most popular drink on the island is rum, which
is normally served in a punch which has quite a kick. Consequently, when you are in Antigua try to
ensure that you do more than the common beach bum thing, and visit the town to get mouth watering
meal and a number of drinks that will help you keep in mind that the island has more on offer than just
beaches and clear waters. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Christian Bremmer</div> It will undoubtedly happen that you
wish to one day sell one of your Timeshare properties, nowadays it's big business so you won't be
alone in your want for getting the best price. The first thing that hits most people when they first look
into selling is that the value of the property will not be as you may wish. This means you really need to
check out the best people to go with and get as much advice as possibly as you don't want to sell them
for even less than they are genuinely worth. Price your timeshare competitively! Selling timeshares
entails for you to price your property competitively in the market. A good deal is what buyers are
looking for and you should give that to them. You should base your price on price of the resort in
selling the same unit as yours. Consider the color of the week that you own when selling timeshares. If
the week you own at the resort is during prime season, you are in the position to increase your price
dramatically. Research! High on your list of things to do when you are selling Timeshares is to find
out what other people are selling there's for. You can get help with finding out this kind of information
by going to a good time share company. By looking at similar properties to your own you can really
see what they are currently being sold for on the market and this will give you a much better idea of
how to price yours up correctly. Publicize your sell! Using services offered by timeshare companies
and advertising companies, you will be able to make a maximum exposure to potential buyers when
you are selling timeshares or any type of real estate for that matter. List your property with complete
details and descriptions along with video and pictures on any advertising website and or publication.
Do not agree or sign any agreement regarding locking you into an exclusive agreement. If you go
ahead with something such as this it means that you can no longer list your timeshare anywhere else
which will mean your property will get aired less and obviously the chances of selling it at a good
price is lower. Advertising is not only limited to the Internet. When selling timeshares, you have other
options in maximizing the exposures of your personal marketing program. The rule of thumb here is to
put your timeshare in front of prospective buyers by utilizing several types of media to advertises your
property. Another form of marketing which is a good idea to look into is the direct kind. By sending
adverts through the mail and sending email you can really sell your property at a far higher level.
Phone calls to potential buyers is also a really great way of getting your timeshare known about and
really gives buyers something 'concrete' to think about. Another great way of getting your timeshare
known about is through Radio advertising this will get the sale of timeshares out to literally thousands
of people! In certain areas where the buying and selling of timeshares is high you even can see
billboard advertisements as well. This is a very big and bold style of advertising and really gets noticed
by anyone who walks or drives past. Patience is a virtue! But, it is still true in selling timeshares.
Even timeshare companies that have been operating for a long time ensuring their expertise in this field
can not predict when your property will sell. Selling timeshares also have two major factors that are
involved in successfully marketing your timeshare. First is the competitive price which was discussed
above and a good advertising exposure. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Wyatt Jones</div> If you are one of those people that believes
business travel is dead then think again as it is on the increase and the main thing responsible for this
growth is the Internet. However, the Internet has made something possible no-one ever thought would
happen - small business can compete on equal terms with large companies. This is putting an
increasing strain on business travellers who often become stressed and fatigued at the constant need to
be in another part of the world. So to help reduce this stress, these business travel tips, which most
regular travelers may already know, should help make it a more enjoyable, stress-free experience.
Since more and more people engage in a lot of travelling, an event in which confusion and lost taking
place can never be turned away from. To get around this constant worry, the experienced worker will
always carry anything of value in his or her hand luggage. Despite the consequences of losing your
main luggage, you don't have to compromise the need to commence your meeting and any activities
concerning your trip. To avoid the further annoyance of losing luggage, you must bear in mind the
main business travel tip when packing those regular trips is to simply include the things that you
precisely need for the journey. The order of the day is simplicity: which means just enough business
clothes for the trip and the same for the evenings so if the amount of footwear is restricted to one pair
for business and one for pleasure then you will be keeping your luggage to minimum. Your toilet bag
other additional documentation that you might need for the meeting but can commence without are the
things left for you to mind about if you have already finished packing you clothing. One little know
business travelers tip that cabin crew use all the time is to roll their clothing up and place them into a
cylinder which reduces the number of creases dramatically. The last thing you want on a business trip
is having clothes laundered because something was spilt on them, this can easily be avoided by
wearing dark clothes which are able to absorb stains more easily. Often you might end up running late
from flight delays for instance so if you haven't time to freshen up properly before a meeting then carry
those hand and face disposable wipes with for an instant refreshing experience. Although most cell
phones have very good standby and talk times now, you will need to make sure it and any other
electronic equipment are charged up before you go on your journey. If you use your flight time
productively and prepare for your appointment you will be able to explore the city you have journeyed
to (possibly for the first time) instead or working in your hotel room. If you want to continue on your
business travel with your plans alongside setting aside any delays or trouble, then you might consider
these tips as they can provide you an assurance and helpful information whenever you need it. If you
want to be more productive and enjoy your business travel you might like to deem over the business
travel tips highlighted here as they can really be of use to you especially if you are able to muddle up a
little personal relaxation time with your work. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by reklicom</div> One of the phenomenon of modern times that is
gaining huge popularity around the globe are these self-catering cottages laced with all sorts of
comforts that can make anyones holiday extremely enjoyable and a sweet memory , they welcome the
tourist with open arms and expose them to a few days of unhurried life . We have a huge range of
cottages suiting different tastes and pockets. Perfect holiday destinations they are giving a very tough
competition to such established holiday destinations like hotels and rest houses. The holiday cottages
should be located in an attractive landscape and this will help to get more customers for the holiday
cottage. Usually holiday cottages are built on the shore of lakes, by the sea or in the county side. The
holiday cottages should be attractive buildings and well decorated and furnished inside. Many holiday
cottages are full of interesting works of art and ornaments. However, the reason that really makes self
catering cottages so well liked is because one gets the freedom to enjoy their stay in any which way
they want. What is surprising is the fact that one is even allowed the freedom to cook their food at
these places. Such a provision goes a long way in tilting the scale firmly in favour of these cottages.
As an owner of a property that is not producing sufficient income, you might want to look into this
avenue yourself. The self catering market is such that no contract is usually required and so you would
be able to dispose of your property without any problem in the even that you chose to sell if for
example. Make an appointment with a local rental agent who will inspect your home and make the
necessary recommendations. You can discuss the level of income anticipated and then take an
informed decision. At the end of the day, the risks in renting your property are low and as mentioned
before, you will not be tied down by a restrictive agreement which would prohibit you from taking
your vacation home of the holiday market. If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing break then a
holiday cottage provides an ideal solution. They're a real home away from home, offering you the
chance to get away from it all and to experience for a while a slower pace of life. Your apartment or
cottage is carefully inspected and maintained by regional managers and offer the best quality available.
This is concept that is not new and over time, problems which might have arisen due to the novelty of
the idea have been resolved. In London, these apartments are even fully serviced with daily cleaning
and regular change of linen and towels. In fact, you may not even want to restrict yourself to a self
catering vacation home in France. Europe is crisscrossed with an extensive railway network, some of it
bullet trains and you can expand your travel to any European country. Just picture yourself exploring
the glorious "Chateaux de la Loire" during the day and then head back to a charming, 500 year old
restored property on the banks of the River Authion. And just case you have a taste of a visit to Paris,
just hop on one of the many bullet trains available in France and travel to Paris in comfort and at great
speed. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Samson Mandez</div> River travel has always been high up on
the list of discerning and refined travelers, and especially so when it comes to spending a week or two
on one of Europe's most scenic and famous waterways. One of the causes for the rising popularity of
European river travel is that even for a luxury cruise prices are sill noticeably lower than for an ocean
cruise, if you compare them to each other. For instance there are vary good alternatives to an expensive
seaborne cruise for a family, and many will prove to be far more relaxing, as well as enriching. A
good compromise for a family who cannot afford to take a two week ocean luxury cruise holiday is to
instead book a week long European river cruise, this kind of travel offers all of the benefits and luxury
of a major sea cruise but on a smaller ship and at a fraction of the cost, making them more affordable
to most families. If you book European river travel, you will usually fly out to one of the major
European cities where the cruise will depart from and there you will meet your ship, this ship will then
take you on a passage down some of the most celebrated and beautiful rivers on the continent. The
bigger rivers of the continent flow through some of its most famous towns, so you will be able to
experience a lot of culture and urban living from the comfort of your floating hotel, without having to
learn local traffic customs to negotiate the countries' roads in a car. You will in fact find that while the
cruise ships plying European rivers are much smaller then their seagoing cousins, for obvious reasons,
they are just as comfortable and well-furnished, with amenities to boot. You can expect every bit as
good food and drink on your European river travel and service that would make some of the best hotels
in the world green with envy. Lodging on board the ship is astonishing with a room service that is too
match, each day you will have a maid service and each night you will have your bed turned down for
you. A European watercourse cruise is a great way to spend your holidays, and especially so if you are
not a great fan of the kind of organized entertainment prevalent on big seagoing vessel, and if you
rather prefer more individual and attentive service. The specifics of European river travel will result in
you having a more cultured and memorable experience. If you are already a regular fan of cruises, or
even if you are a first-timer to ship-bound holidays, you should definitely check out European river
travel, which will be an experience to remember. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

planning ahead of time is always as good as we thought of it. Yes and there is nothing wrong with
planning and budgeting you next kids holidays. Although holidays are for everyone, its the kids that
mostly matters with this season. We have been in there age and we know how holidays enthusiast and
excites children. When we are talking about how we can make our kids happy during holidays- a
Christmas party with family, friends and neighbors what comes easily to our minds. Its a tradition and
since we can not avoid this and all the spending we have to do, planning and budgeting ahead of time
is the solution we all need. Reading the few steps below will give you an idea on how to budget your
next kids holidays. The first step to be done should be reviewing the expenses you had with the last
year holidays. Your goal for the next holiday would be to have more practical and lower expenses than
the last year of course. We have to admit in todays economy we have to be tight with our budget. After
reviewing the expenses last holiday, plan the party. List down everything you will be spending with,
the food, the hats, the games, the prizes and the decors around. Lay them down in your notes with the
corresponding estimated amount that will be spent and have the total. Compare this with last years
expenses and try as hard as you can to eliminate the unnecessary things that are not so much significant
in the party. These unnecessary are those expensive hats and decorations you have. Im not saying you
took them from your list but look for cheaper ones. Instead of buying expensive decorations try
experimenting with colored papers and creatively make something new that will make the setting more
colorful and jolly. With this notion you will be able to reduce your expenses. Instead of giving toys
and toys as give-a-ways which can be costly, why not bake them cookies or cupcakes and also include
candies. Children have sweet tooth so giving them cookies will surely make their day. This will give
you a much lighter expenses than those toys which can really be expensive. And lastly since the next
holiday is still far- have a separate savings for your holiday expenses. This will prevent you in
borrowing and running out of money. Budgeting your next kids holiday will surely keep you away
from holiday blues that debts can give you. So what are you waiting for, get your pen and budget your
next kids holiday! <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div>

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by David Hughes</div> New Zealand is an island country
including two major islands well-known as the north and south islands. New Zealand is positioned in
the southern hemisphere in the south west of the Pacific Ocean. The flightless kiwi bird is a local of
New Zealand and moreover it is the national bird. New Zealand was a colony, and is still a member
colony of the United Kingdom. Auckland is considered to be the largest city on the north island of
New Zealand. It is believed that there are more boat owners than car owners in Auckland because the
public of Auckland are in love with the sea. There are various places to visit in and around Auckland.
Auckland has a museum and a zoo as well; however the place to visit is the Kelly Tariton's Antarctica
and underwater world where you are able to see unlimited variety of fish and a remarkable Antarctica
finding. Where else on earth would you get a chance to find penguins living in fresh snow and ice!
The sky tower of Auckland is 328 meters in height and has a large number of luxurious dining
restaurants and a casino on the ground floor. The view from the peak of the tower of Auckland and its
surrounds is superb. The Victoria park market is over a century old and still depicts the typical life of a
market. The shops and stalls here display a wide range of handicrafts, artwork, and mementos. On the
west coast is the largest all weather glacier center and is simply one of its kind in the southern
hemisphere. You can also experience the indoor ice climbing which would be only one of its kind
experiences. To experience the real outdoor trip on a glacier while on the west coast, take a guided tour
all along the longest glacier on the west coast. Those who are the nature lovers there are adventurous
trails and walking tracks that offer some tremendous views on the west coast. New Zealand has a lot
to offer, and the choices vary depending on the mood and interest of the visitor. From adventure to
wineries with sheep farming, there is something for everyone. New Zealand has one of the best
maritime parks and offers a rare treat to sea whales, dolphins, and penguins. In the south island in
addition, there are a number of interesting places to visit. New Zealanders adore the sea so there are a
lot of spots for diving, sailing, swimming, and other water sports available here. There are sightseeing
trips, visits to beautiful places, and certainly a large number of golf courses for golfers. Getting around
New Zealand is not a problem as it has excellent air and transport systems. There is plenty of
accommodation available in New Zealand. New Zealand is fully developed and has a thriving
economy. New Zealanders love sports, especially rugby and cricket. There striking opponents are the
Australians who are also their closest neighbours. It's a lovely country to visit, and there is plenty to
see and do in New Zealand. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Amy Nutt</div> Travelling to Canada from another country can
be a very exciting experience because Canada is a very beautiful place with a lot of culture. And
depending where you go in Canada, you can experience things such as cold weather like you have
never experienced before. That is definitely something that someone from a warm climate may not be
able to handle too well. Nevertheless, there are many great places to visit. For instance, the 2010
Winter Olympics are taking place in Vancouver and a lot of individuals will be travelling to that area
to see the games. So what should you know before travelling to Canada? What are the things that you
need to make your trip a success? Below are some of those things that you need: - You most certainly
need to ensure that you have secured lodging so that you have a place to go. You need to confirm your
reservation before you leave to ensure that there will be no issues. - Make sure you have your passport
because you will need it if you are staying for a little while. - Take plenty of warm clothes because it is
very cold up in Canada. But is that all you need? The truth is that these three things are not all you
need when you are travelling to Canada. You also need travel insurance. What is travel insurance?
Travel insurance is very important because it covers those things that can occur on a trip. For example,
your trip could become cancelled at no fault of your own. If that happens, you can be out of a lot of
money. Your travel insurance will help you battle this. You can recover lost cash as long as the reason
for the cancelled trip falls under a qualifying event within the policy. So here are some other things
that a good travel insurance policy should have: - Canada should definitely be covered in your <a
href="http://www.pucherinsurance.com" target="_blank">Travel Insurance</a> policy. - Make sure
your electronic items are covered. - Injury or sudden illness should be covered because it can be
expensive to get sick in another country or you risk not getting adequate medical treatment. - There
should be 24 hour emergency assistance. - Lost and stolen possessions, such as jewelry and baggage
should be covered. - Coverage for emergencies that may result in you having to go home early. -
Coverage for legal expenses that may be incurred. - Coverage for hazardous activities, such as skiing.
These are all very important because all of these can occur when you are on your trip. Shopping for
coverage Shopping for coverage is easy. Your travel agency may offer you some travel insurance or
you can shop around online and find the best deal for you. Dont forget that all of the items listed above
are important when choosing the right policy. Always make sure that your policy has everything that
you need. It is not enough to go for the lowest price because you may find that you wont get the
coverage that you need. So shop around and see what you come up with. No matter the reason or the
length of time that you are going to Canada, you cant take too much time when looking for the perfect
travel insurance plan. And you definitely dont want to be caught in a bad situation without it because
your life could depend on it. There is also the fact that whatever occurs, it could become quite
expensive for you and you definitely dont want that to happen. You could be paying the consequences
for years. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the Author:</div> <div

Thailand - Five Things to Do That You Might Regret Not Doing

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by David Hughes</div> If you're searching for a spot where you
can enjoy this summer to the best of its potential, then the greatest location to go is Thailand. From
beaches to clubs, and from shopping to movies, this country is the embodiment of a fun place to enjoy
and relax when on vacation. To help your journey, here is a list of five things you must do when in
Thailand. This check list is to guarantee that you not only see the normal tourist places, but also see the
other things that this country has to offer to its tourists, in addition to its gorgeous sites. First, go to the
beach. You can go to Phuket where you can either check into a cheaper hotel off the coast, or a slightly
more expensive one, depending on your budget. You can also book yourself accommodation on Koh
So Mui or Koh Phi Phi, both of which are beautiful islands with warm water and a wide variety of
touristy things to do. When on the beach, you can take part in water sports such as jet skiing, water
skiing, or para-sailing, or you could also go scuba diving by booking through one of the local tour
operators. Next, make sure you see the partying on Patong Beach in Phuket. The major beach on
Phuket Island is packed with people at night, and the long line of pubs and bars is overflowing with
party goers till the crack of dawn. Go to a Muay Tahi match. This is the land where Muay Thai
originated, so once you are here make sure you watch at least one. This is one of the most popular
sports in the country. However, if you cannot tolerate violence then you are advised to skip it. Most
matches are held on Friday nights, and you can ask a local tour operator to guide you in purchasing
tickets for one. Take in a movie. While this may look like a useless activity on a holiday, you will find
out for yourself that Thailand has the top cinemas globally. They are very modern and equipped with
the newest systems. Thailand offers VIP and First Class cinemas too, where you are given service like
in a five-star hotel. With huge lounges, free snacks and beverages, and only 20 to 40 people in the
cinema accompanying you, you will feel as if you are at a private cinema screening. Most cinemas
even have pillows and blankets, and waiters who serve you food. Bangkok is crowded with malls and
shops offering you all kinds of things at very cheap prices. You can mostly negotiate items down to
half the starting price, and even if you end up paying a little more than a local would, it will still be
much less expensive than the products you may buy from some other place - definitely at home.
Furthermore, you can go to Sukhumvit or the Night Plaza in Patpong for low prices. So, these were
the five things that you definitely need to do when in Thailand so you can experience the best that this
country has to offer to its visitors. Certainly, you should also do the usual tourist sightseeing, but these
five things will really make you fall in love with this country, and bring you back again and again.

A Mississippi Cruise For Seekers Of Thrill And Excitement

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Anthony Herbert</div> A wonderful but lesser-known way to
start on a Mississippi cruise is to leave from the Gulf of Mexico and cruise upriver, leaving from either
Galveston or New Orleans. Many cruise companies offer these options, as their ships have to travel
both ways. [ad#half-banner] Galveston, about an hour's by car from Houston, is a great starting point
for a Mississippi cruise if you are coming from the East. It is a historical area since it was already a
very large, bustling commercial city in the 19th century. In fact the city was the Ellis Island of the
Gulf, and many immigrants (especially of German origin) landed in Galveston. Before leaving on
your Mississippi cruise you may want to stop in the city for a couple of days, as interesting sights
abound. There are several close and lovely beaches for sunbathing and swimming, for instance, as well
as some lovely landscaped gardens in the city proper. New Orleans is another very good spot from
where to begin a Mississippi cruise, and is also worth a stay to savor its colorful history and great town
center. The city is mostly recovered from the recent hurricanes, and areas of visitor interest are all
accessible. In effect, by starting or ending your Mississippi cruise in New Orleans you will be
contributing to the city's recovery by spending your time and some of your tourist dollars there. The
French Quarter is the most famous area, and it's where most sights are, where the best restaurants
congregate, and where you will spend most of your time. It's also the best place to buy some
necessities for your Mississippi cruise. As for food, there are lots of superb options. If you fancy
Oysters, visit the Acme Oyster Bar, which is near Canal Street. For a quick takeaway snack, get a
muffaletta at a baker in the French Quarter. It's a sandwich made with olives, also prevalent on day
Mississippi cruise outings You should also try out both Creole and Cajun cuisines in New Orleans.
Both will be widely available during your Mississippi cruise, but it's just great to savor them on the
city as well. Creole is a European-influenced, rich and creamy way to cook that you are sure to
appreciate. Cajun cuisine is more hearty and rural, with lots of hot food, and includes whatever animal
that you can get without it eating you first! You can get alligator, and in fact you will see it on a lot of
menus. Try these in the city, as not all Mississippi cruises will have them on their menu. Make sure
that you don't forget about security during your town stay, too. Walking shoes are a must, and so is a
hat, which you are well advised to wear outdoors during the Mississippi cruise too. And bring a light
jacket, because even in the good season it can get windy. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

Pregnancy and Travel: An Introduction

[ad#half-banner] <div class="byline" style="italic;">by Ron Burnley</div> Any woman who is
expecting a child will have to re-think her flight travel plans as soon as she knows she is expecting.
The first thing that needs doing is a consultation with the doctor as there are certain times when it is
safer to fly than others apart from any current medical problems. Medical reasons which would prevent
a pregnant woman from flying can include, blood loss, raised blood pressure or swelling. Most airlines
will allow pregnant women to fly internationally until 35 or 36 weeks but individual airlines may differ
for a normal, healthy pregnancy and until 32 weeks for a multiple pregnancy i. It is possible to obtain
medical certificate to confirm your pregnancy and it may be requested especially if you are in excess of
24 weeks. As with all flights unless business class or first class are used, space is at a premium so
expectant mothers should always try to check in early and get on of the better seat like those at the
bulkhead or aisle. Normally, typhoid and hepatitis A and B vaccinations are recommended for Asia
and Africa, however, typhoid vaccinations are not recommended for pregnant women although there is
no evidence of fetal damage, there is only limited research on the fetal effects of these vaccinations.
Malaria is another problem and expectant mothers are advised not to travel to countries where
contracting it is a possibility. Residents of Australia for instance are advised to be up to date with their
inoculations but if they are under six years of age then the hepatitis A and typhoid vaccinations are not
advised. Always check with a doctor as to which vaccinations are required as they will vary depending
on an individual situation and itinerary. Always refuse to drink water unless it is bottled with an
unbroken seal and the same goes for ice in drinks if you want to avoid contracting hepatitis A or
typhoid. It is also inadvisable to eat fruit and raw vegetables and before eating wash your hands with
an antibacterial hand wash. A handy travel accessory is the small 60ml gel bottles of antibacterial hand
wash that dries almost immediately on contact with the air but does mean that special washing
facilities aren't required before eating. Unfortunately expectant mothers have a higher than normal risk
of blood clots which increases when flying but the risk can be reduced by wearing compression
stockings. Of course it is also a good idea to walk around on a flight whenever it is safe to do so. It is
also worth an expectant mother to check on her insurance policy before she flies as some place further
restrictions especially after the twenty sixth week of pregnancy. Although there are companies that will
cover the cost of insuring a mother to be after the twenty sixth week of pregnancy, they do not
normally cover any birth expenses. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Chris Linch</div> Well with the way the world is going today
everyone needs to conserve a little cash. Here are five little tips to help you save on your airlines if you
are going to travel in the next few months. [ad#half-banner] Find Winter and Spring Sales " Now that
fuel prices have dropped and the demand for the holidays is gone, air lines continue to drop fares to
certain destinations. Find a major low cost airline and they will probably be having some sort of sale,
especially if you purchase in advance. In 2009 I think you should see generally lower airfares that you
did last year. Dont be tempted to hold out for a lower price, if you see a price you can afford, book it
now. Watch Extra Fees - Sometimes you might find an airline offering a steal on tickets, but then you
find out when you get there to check your bags is an extra $20-$50. Make sure you know these fees
ahead of time. Some airlines may charge a little more in fare, but have lower baggage fees and end up
being the same price. The best thing to do is carry on if you can. This will save you money. Become a
member of airline websites - Many airlines have a mailing list where they will send you the deals that
they have available. You can be the first to know when an airline is having a special and that is the best
time to book, before anybody else. Find Low Demand Destinations - Some airlines fly into smaller
airports that arent as expensive as the larger airports. Granted you will be on a smaller plane, but it
may save you money. For instance if you were going to Orlando, you might save flying into Sanford,
FL which is just 20-30 miles away. If you cant save on air save when you get there " Find a good
place to book hotels. If you can save on your hotel then the airfare wont matter as much. Right now it
is very easy to save on hotels, they are dropping prices just to bring in guests. I always post about
good travel deals. There is always some fancy way to save on your travels. Keep your eyes open for
future articles on how to save some dough. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by B. Kip Hernandez</div> Before the worldwide credit and
housing crisis, timeshare sales were boasting robust growth. In 2007, timeshare sales totaled a
whopping $10.6 billion, with close to 5 million households in the US alone owning one or more
timeshare units (or equivalents). Even as sales of timeshares boomed, so did the number of timeshare
owners trying to resell their units. These owners have by and large expressed interest in helping others
avoid their mistakes and share the hard lessons they have learned. Five of the top arguments against
buying a timeshare are listed below. 1. The Upfront Cost The purchase of a timeshare usually
involves paying an upfront cost. As of 2007, the average initial cost of buying a timeshare was around
$19,000. The timeshare salespeople will always tell prospective buyers to look at these costs as an
investment which will save them thousands over the long term. However, as all too many timeshare
owners have learned, it is nearly impossible to use your timeshare enough to ever make this upfront
cost worthwhile. Furthermore, the money spent could have been used for savings, necessities, and/or
true investments with expected returns. Timeshare rentals or traditional hotel lodging on a year-to-year
basis would most likely be a much more cost-effective way to spend your vacationing dollar. 2. Pain
in Scheduling Timeshare owners generally have to book their usage far in advance, often as far ahead
as two years. Since the owners are already paying maintenance fees and assessments, the resorts have
little incentive to make things easy for the timeshare owners. The resort makes far more money by
selling yet more timeshares in the same property. 3. Contracts Favoring the Timeshare Timeshares
typically require owners to sign long term contracts. The salespeople will explain this long term
contract as being a firm commitment from the resort. What these contracts really ensure is a steady
income stream ? revenue provided by timeshare owners - for the resort which can last decades. The
resort can easily place a lien on the real property of owners or obtain a judgment against the timeshare
owner if they try simply to refuse to pay. 4. Fees and More Fees A common marketing technique in
timeshare presentations is to examine the rising cost of hotels due to inflation. The comparison with a
timeshare and a low weekly cost in the form of an annual maintenance fee seems like quite a bargain.
What is not thoroughly considered is the fact that maintenance fees rise over time as well. Resorts can
also issue special assessment fees whenever any type of "special circumstances" arise. Thousands of
dollars can be spent on special assessments alone. 5. Huge Number of Resales The number of
timeshare owners who feel the proverbial albatross around their necks is rising. The disillusionment
has caused a glut of timeshares on the resale market. The competition and the lack of informed buyers
has caused plummeting sales prices. Many timeshares go completely unsold with the owners quietly
bearing the on-going burden to pay the associated fees. Friends don't let friends buy timeshares. Learn
from those that have gone through the process yet are lost among the din of timeshare promotions. The
long-term contractual obligations and scheduling hassles far outweigh the freedom of vacationing on
an ad hoc basis. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by John Ledger</div> To spend your honeymoon aboard a
honeymoon cruise is one of the best experiences you can live, yet people have the wrong idea that this
type of travel is extremely expensive. As a matter of fact, you can find a cheap honeymoon cruise by
keeping in mind this info. You should be aware that cruise ships offer honeymoon specials in the form
of "packages" with an extra cost. The cost is not fixed across all cruise line, so it would be a good idea
to start by taking note of the different prices and see which ones fits better your budget. Sure, these
honeymoon specials may look awesome, but keep in mind that in the end all that matters is you and
your beloved one, so you don't really need all that extra stuff. Next you'll want to choose an economic
package. These will vary depending on the benefits they include but they all include food and drinks
(expecting alcohol). Go for the packages that will cost less for a cheap honeymoon cruise. As an
example, you can opt to avoid dinner on the luxury restaurants inside the ship, and instead focus on the
beauty of the sea, the breeze and the romantic moon. Choosing a package is great to control your
budget. If you want to party aboard the ship and spend a lot of time outside your room, you can opt for
a basic deck room. Don't underestimate small rooms! They are great for passionate moments - if you
know what I mean! When choosing a destination, the best would be to go on a cruise that doesn't
require you an extra cost. For example if you live in Florida it will be less expensive to choose a cruise
that departs from there, instead of choosing a Mediterranean cruise. Finally, to get a cheap honeymoon
cruise, I'd advise you to travel during low season, as prices drop a lot. If you have trouble adjusting
your time, you can also opt for last minute cruises. &#8195; <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Simon M Skinner</div> Have you found yourself in a job with
no future? Does the idea of climbing the corporate ladder seem like yet another dead end job? Why not
skip the rat race and find a job in the Caribbean. Don't get me wrong, this isnt some sort of internet
scam it is possible to trade your mundane job for a new life on a beautiful Caribbean island. If you use
a reputable international job search firm you can locate employment in the Caribbean and head
towards warmer and more culturally diverse regions. Imagine a job where your surroundings are
literally a tropical paradise and all of your customers are on vacation! Hold your horses though!
Perhaps you have family and friends in the US (or wherever you reside) and are hesitant about leaving
the life you are used to. This is not a problem, there is part time or full time work and temporary
positions available in the Caribbean throughou the whole year. What region constitutes the Caribbean?
You can have your choice of working jobs on Cayman Island, in Bermuda, the Bahamas, BVI, Aruba,
USVI, Trinidad, Antigua, Puerto Rico and Dominica. What kind of jobs can you look forward to
working? It depends on your own skill level and experience. What if you hsave more specialized or
unusual skills? Then there is a job for you in the Caribbean. Even if your skills and experience are
somewhat limited there are still vacancies that can suit you and help you to actually train and increase
your skillset whilst living in the Caribbean! Finding employment in the Caribbean is just the same as
finding a suitable job in the US. Is it legal to work in another country? Of course it is! You have to be
a little more careful to keep track of paperwork, such as travel and health insurance, work permits and
other documents that you would not need in the country where you normally reside. Initially you may
have to also watch your expenses because you will probably have to come up with airfare,
accommodation and perhaps even legal permits that will allow you to work in the Caribbean. The
process of finding a job in the Caribbean is not too complicated but it does have its pitfalls so it is best
to hire a professional international recruiting agency to help get you started on your new life abroad.
JobInTheSun.com offers this service and helps all new members with their travel documents, the job
search, tips on how to apply and get the position, as well as information on financial planning. You
don't have to live the rest of your life performing a job you don't like. You can make a change now and
start working at the <a target='_blank' href="http://www.jobinthesun.com">Caribbean job</a> of your
dreams. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

How To Travel Safely

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Graham Webb</div> Like any American, traveling once in a
while is just what I love doing and I bet you share the same stuff with me. Just because you're taking a
vacation break doesn't mean you're going to be safe. When we plan a vacation break, we are too pre-
occupied with what we are escaping from, like a job and all the accompanying stress, but there is
always danger looming wherever we go. To have the assurance that you will be safe in your journey,
let me give you some few hints for your safety. It is most likely that you would carry a baggage with
you when you travel but see to it that putting your address in your luggage is something that you would
never do. Along with this baggage, there's probably going to be a luggage tag and on this tag, you're
only going to want to put your name and phone number. This way, if somebody is going to return it,
they can call for details. The reason for this is because if the thief finds something valuable in your
baggage, he might think that chances are that there are more valuable things at home. It's a rather safe
bet to just settle on leaving your first and last name. Keeping your baggage clean of essential papers is
highly advisable. Clothes and other things that you can risk losing are the only things that should be
kept in your luggage. Items like passport, charge card and other essential documents should not be kept
inside any baggage. As mentioned earlier, once somebody gets hold of this, he can have the full details
about you. Avoid being flashy: Showing off of their cash is something that some travelers love to do
but the truth of the matter is, they're drowned in debts. If you wear some flashy costly jewelry, you're
more likely to be pursued by a thief and ending you up in a place and predicament where you never
wanted to be. Since no body really cares about your visual aspect when you are traveling, there is
hardly any point in wearing attention-grabbing travel gear. Take into the consideration the thought
whether you really care enough about the way people look and with regards to their style. When you
are about to start on your vacation, clean up the contents of your notecase and throw away all old and
unnecessary slips of papers. According to travel gurus, it is better to travel light and not carry multiple
credit cards and documents which are best left at home in a secure place. Just carry at least one credit
card. It is essential to note down the telephone number of the charge card company, so that in the event
of the card getting lost or stolen, you can inform the company instantly. There are so many points I
can list when it comes to traveling and safety so it's up to you to use your best judgment. The most
critical point to remember is not to flaunt or carry things, which are valuable when traveling. If you can
follow the tip that is to carry only the things that you can afford to lose, then no doubt that you will be
one of the safest travelers ever known. <div class="resource"> <div class="about"

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Karl Heinz</div> Mara Timbo Camp, a German run property is
situated below the Oloololo escarpment on the border of the Mara River, on the edge of the Masai
Mara Game Reserve. The plains between the Mara River and the Esoit Oloololo Escarpment are
probably the best area for game viewing, in particular regarding lion and cheetah. The Mara Timbo
camp consists of seven luxuriously made tents which are en-suite with bathrooms. Lavish yet simple
African dcor is the hallmark of each tent interior. It is thatched with grass to ensure that even in hot
weather the interior will remain cool. Each tent is equipped with a private veranda, an outdoor bathtub
and a sitting area. This is a 5 star establishment. The facilities in the tent include a king-size bed, a
safe deposit, a bathroom with double sinks, hot and cold shower, flush toilet, 220/240volt power
supply and amenities for use by the guests. There is a lot of space so privacy is guaranteed. Also the
tents are very romantic and stylish. A personal butler is assigned to each tent to provide room service.
The butlers are female, well trained and apart from room service, they are well informed about the
Camp, Masai Mara and nature in general. Mara Timbo Camp has a restaurant spread on three little
restaurant islands. Clients have a choice between three menus with three courses each, one of them
vegetarian. Candlelit dinner is organized at around a big campfire and under the stars. There is a
lounge and a bar set centrally in the lounge area. The lounge dcor is tasteful with cosy lounge chairs,
artwork from the locals with a well stocked reference library. The Mara Timbo camp has a Message
Tree- house that ensures visitors are provided with refreshing and professional body message with
aromatherapy based oils. The message tree house has a stunning view of the Mara River where one can
see the hippos milling around. Animal sightings are guaranteed to any visitor visiting, the river itself
is inhabited by two hippo families. A nature walk showcases the very best wildlife has to offer in their
very own natural habits. Herbivores that you will encounter are Giraffes, elephants, monkeys, rhinos
and zebras to name but a few. Predators too are also spotted like the lion, hyena, and leopard. Night
game drives, bird watching and cultural visits are usually arranged. The camp operates a well stocked
gift shop located near the main area. The stocks include films, souvenirs, t-shirts, hats, Masai
beadwork crafted by local Masai women. Other suppliers for the gift shop include Kenya kanga,
Marula studios and Kenya beads. The Masai Mara isa 40 minute flight away from Nairobi Wilson
airport. The Mara Timbo is located near the Oloololo gate of Masai National Reserve and the kichwa
Tembo Tembi airstrip. Guests have the option of being picked up at the Kichwa Tembo airstrip and
transferred to the camp. The drive to the camp is a first hand experience of the Mara, you get not only
to ogle at the scenery but the animals also. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Ian Kleine</div> The first answer people would get when
associating festivals to something would be "family trip." And they wouldn't be wrong. Almost half of
the demography loitering around the grounds would belong to a picture-perfect family; with Dad
looking all huff-puff, Mom somewhat smiling, Big Sister looking bored, and Little Brother holding his
balloon with an excited twinkle in his eyes. But fairs are for everyone, no exceptions. Be it for the
filthy rich, the marginally wealthy, the struggling middle-man, the fleeters cutting from their jobs, or
the poor guy sleeping in the bench; everyone is welcome to the fair (unless there's an uberly expensive
entrance fee, then I guess only the rich and the wealthy get to go in.) For the single person, who wants
to go back to his childhood and relive the dreams he had of flying horses and magic and staying up
late. For the lonely soul that wishes to spend the day forgetting his troubles. For the one who's busy
contemplating what to do next with his life. For couples, who wish to spend the day together with the
ones they love. For the couples who wish to reunite with the ones they love. For those who wish to
reminisce the time spent together. For children, who want to spend their life to the fullest. For those
who want to experience magic at it's best. For those who want to know what fun is all about. For the
elderly, who want to go back to being a child. For those who want to remember and never forget the
old times. For those whose time is near, and wish to spend their days happy. There are a lot of things
to do in the fair for everyone. <div class="resource"> <div class="about" style="italic;">About the

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Peter Plantier</div> The critical thing to be aware of with malaria
symptoms is that from case to case, there is a variation in the incubation period, ie, the time between
initial infection and manifestation of the disease. 9 to 14 days is the normal time of incubation, but
symptoms may appear in as little as 7 days or after as long as 10 months with the virus just staying
dormant in the body. Delayed symptoms The seriousness of the infection can vary depending on the
immunity of the infected person and their general health It is also possible to find that a person can be
infected but is not showing any signs because they are taking preventive medication. What is
important to know is that especially at the onset, what are malaria symptoms may not follow a specific
pattern and one should not strictly use the time factor as the basis for diagnosis. The infection could be
present, showing little or no symptoms and yet continue to deteriorate because of staying unattended.
Signs to watch for. -- fever -- chills -- vomiting and nausea -- lack of appetite -- Splitting headaches
sweats -- loss of energy -- tiredness -- dry cough -- pain in the back and the muscles -- enlarged
liver and spleen Fever is often the first the earliest sign of malaria and it is important to get diagnosis
from a qualified doctor. As stated a malaria attack can be very subtle. Advanced malaria. If the
disease degenerates and continues to be unattended, further symptoms could include -- jaundice --
seizures -- shock and coma -- kidney and or liver failure -- a changed mental state and the start of
cerebral malaria Malaria is a killer disease. So go for proper diagnosis in case you experience some of

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Peter Plantier</div> To be able to say for certain about malaria
symptoms, one needs to know that the time between initial infection and when the symptoms appear (
the incubation period) varies. The normal incubation period is between 9 and 14 days. Nevertheless
symptoms could appear in as little as 7 days or the body can host the virus for as long as between 18 to
40 days. On occasion the disease has been known to take even up to 10 months to manifest. Causes of
delayed manifestation. Built up body immunity of a person and if they are in general good health can
delay manifestation of the disease. Delays in incubation may also be because one is taking preventive
medication but is infected nevertheless. At the outset, malaria symptoms may not follow a definable
pattern and a time frame is not a good basis for diagnosis. Infection could be present and festering if
not attended to. Symptoms -- feverishness -- chills -- possible nausea and vomiting -- lack of
appetite -- headache pains -- sweating -- loss of energy -- general tiredness -- dry cough -- back
pain and muscle pain -- enlargement of the liver and spleen As shown a malarial attack can be very
subtle and because a fever is often an early sign, any fever should be evaluated without delay by a
health- care provider. Severe malaria infection If unattended the disease will become more serious, in
which case these symptoms could be experienced: -- jaundice -- seizures -- shock even coma --
kidney and or liver failure -- a changed mental state and the start of cerebral malaria Malaria is a

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by reklicom</div> Self catering cottages which have grown in
popularity in the last few years, is the modern Britishers' style of going for vacations. The no hassles
and easy to book self catering cottages are ideal for those who are hard pressed of time and want to
squeeze in a mini vacation inside their busy work schedules. You have plenty of options in self
catering cottages - let's see some of them. The idea is to learn the tips and tricks for saving on your
family vacations and get a good understanding of cottage ownership, Destination Clubs, Wholesale
travel groups, Vacation Clubs, all inclusive resorts and Timeshare units. Like anything else we do
education is key. You do not drive without taking driving lessons, and you do not swim without taking
some sort of swimming lessons so take advantage of the resources that are out there and learn how to
save money on your family vacations and turn your dream vacations into reality. For the romantic at
heart and for whom cottage means a thatched roof and a simple lifestyle underneath, there are small
cottages and thatched cottages easily available. You can book them online through various sites that
offer a wide range of self catering cottages. Chances are that you might just land up with a cottage that
has a rose garden around the cottage or one that is in close proximity to the scenic landscapes. If
you're taking a trip down to the south-west of England this summer, you'll have a number of things to
consider before planning your trip. For instance, if you're travelling with a large group of people - say,
your family or a big gathering of friends - it might be hard for you to find accommodation that suits
your needs. However, renting a holiday cottage in Devon or Cornwall is sure to put to rest any
accommodation worries you might have - as well as giving you the opportunity to escape the hardships
of urban life and explore the countryside in style. Sometime in early 1990, fractional ownership
started to become very popular. Agencies would offer programs that would usually involve buying a
percentage ownership of a vacation property with a partnership agreement in place that would stipulate
how many weeks each partner could have for their own personal use as well as a schedule of when
those weeks could be used. Most Sussex cottages are available all year round but you will need to
check that yours is as some of them may only be available in the summer months, this is not on many
of the properties but some are only available at certain times of the year. There are many regions
within Devon, each of which can offer different things to different visitors. Dartmoor is, for example,
one of the most stunning places to visit in the whole of the UK and as a National Park is a perfect
location for nature lovers. Of course, this varied and bustling county is also lucky enough to be
surrounded on both sides (to the south and the north) by the sea and miles of spectacular coastline. So,
if getting soft sand between your toes is the thing that you look forward to most when on holiday,
choosing a holiday cottage in Devon that's next to the incomparable Devon shoreline is a fantastic
boon to any type of holiday whether you're looking for an action packed break or some quality time
with those who mean the most to you. No matter what you want from your holiday in this fantastic
county - or how many there are in your party - taking a holiday cottage in Devon allows everyone to
settle in and feel at home before the adventures really begin. Staying at a holiday cottage in Devon
rather than at a hotel gives you the freedom to explore this rich and welcoming county, and means you
are not committed to any one else's schedule. You and your party (even if it's a party of two) can make
your own agenda and truly experience the things you would like to explore without having to cut your
day short in order to get back for dinner (and without having to cut your lazy morning short in order to
get down for breakfast!) Over the last few years it has become increasingly popular to choose to
holiday in the UK. This has come about as a result of a number of changes in people's attitudes toward
long haul flights and paying for package holidays that don't meet all of the customer's expectations.
The UK has many exciting places to visit and one of the most picturesque landscapes in the UK is in
Devon. With many different natural features to boast of within the county there's something to please
everyone while you're away and even more to discover. Choosing a holiday cottage in Devon through
a professional company means you can expect good quality and well-maintained facilities such as
private grounds, tennis courts and - with holiday cottages in Devon that cater for larger parties - even a
croquet lawn. You can also request romantic and serene settings for couples that range from gardens
with fountains to locations only minutes away from the beach. <div class='resource'><div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Heerlijke Vakanties</div> Luxury family travel is getting
increasingly popular. Despite the current adverse economic conditions, luxury family travel
expenditure is on the rise. A nice, luxurious vacation can be great fun for big and small families alike.
It gives people the possibility to relax and enjoy a little piece of paradise. In this article, we'll take a
look at a few tips for an excellent luxury family vacation. The amount of planning and preparation you
will need depends on the distance you're traveling. The further away, the more planning and prep time
required. When you decide to go to Asia, South America or Africa, be sure to check if you need any
shots. Your MD can tell you if shots are required and can help you get the necessary assistance. If you
want to take any pets with you, plan a long time ahead. It's an arduous task to take animals abroad and
it can take quite a while to get everything sorted out. When choosing a room or vacation home, be sure
that your accommodation is big enough and has all the amenities you will need. A luxury vacation
depends on where you're staying a great deal. If you're not sure about anything at all, call ahead. It's
always a plus to have people around that speak your language. If you're travelling in the United States,
that won't be a problem. But if you're squeezing into the silver tube to go to distant lands, you should
pick up a little booklet to get the gist of the language. Planning ahead and good preparation are key to
having an excellent luxury vacation. A little preparation goes a long way, and it gives you the pleasure
of a worry free vacation. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> Malaysia could be defined as a crystal of the
east with such a variety of cultures and some of the most attractive beaches situated on both its east
and west shoreline. But, the place to start your tour while you are in Malaysia is from its capital city
Kuala Lumpur, or the awe aspiring Petronas Twin Towers which are the tallest buildings in the world.
The sight of the Petronas Twin Towers from the tourists' gallery is exceptionally mesmerizing. The
Kuala Lumpur bird park is not just the largest but the best bird park in Asia. It is bordered by a
butterfly park, a planetarium, and other places of interest. It's a beautiful place to take the children
along to see such a variety of birds and feeding points from where people can in reality feed the birds.
The Batu caves are a Hindu sacred site, and at the bottom of the caves is a gigantic gold statue. 272
steps have to be climbed to get to the caves which are located in a limestone mountain, and there are a
several number of Hindu temples in the caves. The caves are pretty humid, and it gets relatively hot
and sultry inside the caves. There are a large number of markets, restaurants, dance clubs, and plenty
of hotels to stay in Kuala Lumpur. To do a spot of gambling or to play on a mountain resort, a visit to
the cool Genting highland is worthwhile. There is a casino and a golf course located here, and the
weather is quite cool and refreshing especially after taking the heat and humidity of the lower plains.
It's a good spot to relax and unwind in. from Genting highland if there is transport then a visit to the
beach resorts that dot the east coast of Malaysia are worth visiting for the white sand beaches and
tropical forests. The serenity of nature is wonderful to soothe in even the most ruffled of nerves. Near
Kuah is a geographical awesome sight identified as the seven wells. A fresh water stream tumble down
just about 90 meters via seven pools. The mount becomes more and more attractive as you get to the
top. However be cautious while climbing as the rocks are slick. Next to Kuah is the Pantai Cenang
beach with its white sandy beaches and breath taking sunsets. Pulau Tioman is a huge entirely
developed volcanic island which offers the full range of water sports, diving spots, jungle treks,
cycling, and moreover, golfers can as well play some golf over here. Accommodation facilities can be
found with no trouble as there are a large number of hotels that spot the coastal rim of this island. To
get a fabulous view of Georgetown, take the funicular cable car ride up on Penang hill. This half ride
shows the lovely flora and fauna that Malaysia is so rich in. For trekkers the 6 kilometer walk up the
mountain to reach the 800m peak can be quite adventurous. There is no scarcity in the multiplicity of
attractions that can be found in Malaysia. There are enjoyment and theme parks, golf courses and
restaurants, and the vast range of food that is obtainable from the hawker centers is pretty incredible.
Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Indonesian food is most widely sold at the hawker centers. Taxi could be
used to travel around Malaysia, intercity buses and a train link could also be used which runs through
the length of Malaysia all the way down to Singapore and up north into Thailand. Accommodation
anywhere in Malaysia is unproblematic to find, and nearly all the international hotel chains have their
hotels in the key cities and seaside resorts of Malaysia. The weather conditions in Malaysia are hot
and humid almost the full year round. Consequently all the shopping centers, hotels, and restaurants
are air conditioned. A vacation in Malaysia is an experience that remains engraved on the memory as it
turns out to be far different than what was expected. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Matthew Kepnes</div> A good way to find undeveloped, rugged
tropical islands is in Africa. Most are free of lots of package tours, most have great jungles, the water is
crystal clear, the fish abundant, and their beaches are made of beautiful white sand. If there were any
islands in the world that are picture perfect, the following islands would the places you should see.
Zanzibar is an island in the country of Tanzania and is famous for its spices, fish, and historic Stone
Town. The island is incredible and during the day the fishermen are out catching the dinner and
everyone is swimming in the beautiful ocean. At night everyone comes to Stone Town to eat and shop.
There is a great Arab influence here that also makes this island unique. Madagascar is a large island
nation in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern coast of Africa. The country is the fourth-largest island
in the world and has 5% of the world's plant and animal species. The eastern side of the island is home
to many tropical rainforests, while the western and southern sides, which lie in the rain shadow of the
central highlands, are home to tropical dry forests, thorn forests, and deserts. For those looking for
tough jungle trekking, cool streams, and beautiful waterfalls, consider Madagascar. Lastly, there are
the islands of the Seychelles. Located off the east coast of Africa, these islands are pure paradise. If
anywhere in the world would get someone give it all up and live in beach hut, the Seychelles would be
it. The Seychelles have perfect beaches, perfect water, tons of islands to choose from, and all the
seclusion you want. This group of 115 islands offers everything a beach lover could ask for. However,
the downside to this paradise is that it is expensive to get to and caters to a rich clientele, making them
also expensive to stay in. Reunion is off the tourist trail to many of the world's travelers. This diverse
location in the middle of the Indian Ocean is simply one of the most intriguing spots in the world.
Like Mauritius, this island also part of France. With an active volcano, 17 miles of perfect beaches in
the west, and lots of mountains and forests in between, Reunion offers a little bit of everything to every
type of island traveler. Africa may be known to most people for its safaris, jungles, and animals but it
also offers great tropical destinations for travelers who like beaches. With so many beautiful tropical
places, think about vacation to these islands when you are plan a jaunt to a tropical island. <div

How to Strike Great Bahamas Deals

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Charlie Reese</div> Escape the Winter Blues with Bahamas
Cruise Deals I am not a winter person at all. I hate cold weather, I don't like skiing, skating,
snowboarding or other winter sports, and I can't stand the dark, dreary days and lack of sunshine. As
soon as the weather starts changing in November, I just feel like holing myself up in the house and not
emerging again until March! Since that's not exactly a feasible plan for coping with the winter blues,
I'm going to do the next best thing: look into Bahamas cruise deals and escape for a week of sun and
fun. Although I've never been to the islands before, I've heard that Nassau and Freeport are two of the
top tourist destinations in that area -- and for good reason. In addition to miles of picturesque white,
sandy beaches and sparkling blue waters, these cities are renowned for their exciting nightlife,
impressive shopping districts, and other fun activities for singles and couples alike. All I have to do to
reach these exotic locations is find affordable Bahamas cruise deals and book my vacation. Actually, I
wasn't even sure that I'd be able to find Bahamas cruise deals in my price range since I want to hit the
islands during the peak travel season. I'm sure it's a lot cheaper to head down there in the summer, but
what's the point of that when my goal is to escape the harsh winter weather? So I just crossed my
fingers and hoped that there were at least a few websites offering cheap Bahamas cruise deals online.
As it turns out, I was indeed able to put together a decent package, though it took some extra e-mails
and phone calls on my part in order to get everything just right. I first checked on the all-inclusive
Bahamas cruise deals, and then compared prices with standard packages where airfare and meals were
calculated separately. It turns out that the all-inclusive packages were cheaper for me -- but just barely.
I have a feeling that if I lived a bit closer to the departure point, I would have been fine going with a
standard package, so this is definitely something you should be aware of when you research Bahamas
cruise deals. Once I found a package that I liked, I made my reservation and paid a deposit with my
credit card. After I pay the remainder of the balance, I'll be good to go and will be able to enjoy
beautiful beaches and refreshing waves while everyone else around here is bundled up against the
below-zero wind chill! If you're looking to get away on a fabulous vacation sometime soon, be sure to
check out the various Bahamas cruise deals that are available right now. The sooner you book your
tickets, the sooner you'll be able to sail off into the sunset while leaving all your cares behind! <div

Travel Tips - Your International Airport

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Mike Gregorio</div> Are you planning on flying out of the
country this year? If so, have you even been on an international flight before? If not, there is also a
good chance that you have never been in an international airport before. Even if you have visited an
international airport before, is it the same one that you are planning on flying out of for your next trip?
If not, you are advised to fully research and examine the international airport that you will be using.
You will find that are an unlimited number of benefits to doing so. Perhaps, the most important
reason for familiarizing yourself with the international airport that you will be flying out of is so that
you can know where you are going. Most international airports do not only house international airlines,
but domestic airlines as well. For that reason, most international airports are fairly large in size. In fact,
some are so large that they may seem overwhelming. By taking the time to research and examine each
airport facility, namely the airport terminals, you will know where to arrive, where to park, and where
to wait. Perhaps, the easiest way is to visit the online website of the international airport in question. If
you don?t already know the address of that online website, you should be able to find it by performing
a standard internet search. Once you have arrived at the airport?s webpage, you should be able to find a
map of the airport. Some international airports have interactive maps, but almost all airports have maps
that you could easily print off your computer, if you wish to do so. These fees do not include the cost
of your airline tickets, but the cost of using certain airline services or features. For instance, a large
number of international airports, especially those large in size, have offsite parking. This means that
the parking lots, which are often long-term lots, are not within a reasonable walking distance to the
airport terminals. If this is the case, you will need to make different arrangements. Most international
airports will offer shuttle rides to and from their airports, but not all are free. In the event that you will
be charged for using a shuttle service, you are advised to determine that cost ahead of time. Although
you may be healthy to receive a free shuttle ride from the airfield parking lot to your terminal, you will
not be healthy to get food and souvenirs free of charge. Although it is impossible to determine the
exact cost of your souvenir purchases or the cost of your food, you should be healthy to make a
reasonable estimate. This estimate may be important, especially if you are traveling on a limited
budget. By examining the shopping centers and restaurants that you will have access to, you should be
healthy to decide how much or how little you would like to spend at the airport. You will also want to
see if the international airfield that you will be using has an estimated arrival time. Almost all airports
request that you arrive at least two hours before your flight is scheduled to take off, but some
international airports have other suggestions or advice for travelers. If you find that the airfield
recommends arriving three hours early, you are advised to arrive three hours early. This will help to
ensure that you are healthy to make your international flight. If a problem should arise and you miss
your flight, it may be difficult to schedule another international flight right away; you may not only be
required to move a few hours, but a few days. As you can easily see there are a number of different
reasons why you should familiarize yourself with the international airport that you will be flying in and
out of. With this research taking a maximum of a few hours, you are advised to do it; you are
guaranteed to walk away better prepared. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

Golf Holidays to Get Away From It All

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Dr Kang Isla</div> If you have been working too hard for too
long and just need to get away and play some golf, you will want to check out golf holidays package
vacations from your travel agent. These travel arrangements are often referred to as "stay and play"
plans because you stay at a certain hotel and receive rights to play at a certain golf course while you
are there. When making these arrangements, make sure there are not special requirements that will
make playing inconvenient or impossible for you. Some of these plans require you to limit your arrival
dates and departure dates or have other unacceptable limits so read the fine print. You can take golf
holidays to all sorts of locations depending on your personality and desires. For instance, you can
choose to golf in a course located near or in a major city, taking in museums or theatres when not
golfing. Or you might choose to visit a golf course in an area of rugged natural beauty such as the
mountains. While there, you might take a day to fish instead of golf. Whatever your needs, you can
find golf holidays packages to meet your needs. Are you going to take your own golf clubs with you
when you travel on golf holidays? You probably would prefer to use them rather than the clubs that
can be rented at the course to which you are travelling. If you choose to take them with you, you will
need to think about the arrangements a bit. For instance, do you have a really high quality golf club
bag which will protect those expensive golf clubs. If not, you'd better get one. You won't be able to
carry your clubs on if you are flying, so you'll need a bag that can take airport luggage handling and
still protect your clubs. So get a good one. When picking a destination for golf holidays, pick the
course you wish to play on first, and then find out about lodging at hotels, resorts, or stay and play
package plans. Make sure the tee times that are set for you when choosing a stay and play package are
going to work for you. People who are staying at a golf course's own resort generally get first serve
when choosing tee times. If it's really important to you to get the tee time you desire, it may be worth it
to you to stay at the resort instead of a less expensive hotel. Either way, you are sure to find
refreshment and restoration when taking golf holidays. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Luke Pantinger</div> Getting Great Holiday Villas in Spain
Spanish people like their leisure time. The country of Spain is very relaxed. Those who tour Spain
experience a rich heritage and an amazing culture. This is a foremost destination for holidaymakers
around the world. Spain is a year-round tourist magnet. Holidaymakers marvel at the architecture, sip
the delicious wines, and share some good food. Some Spanish holiday villas are for sale. The owners
sell them to holidaymakers and visitors who wish to have houses to live in when they are on holiday in
Spain. These villas in Spain are situated in a specific regions where, together with several other
property owners, they would have decided to build villas for frequent visitors to Spain. More and more
holiday makers head for Spain each year and - a Spanish villa away from home. Some vacationers
have bought a house in Spain so that they would have a place to relax in a home away from home.
These holidaymakers appreciate the relaxed way of life. Renting holiday villas in Spain and touring the
country is becoming a vacation trend. There are numerous informative websites on the Internet that
that talk about holiday villas that come complete with kitchens, appliances, cookware and bedding.
These villas are small houses with several rooms and at least one bathroom for the guests convenience.
These villas are generally situated near a convenient urban area. Put alongside an average five star
hotel room, holiday villas are less expensive. You can accommodate better than two people, as well as
a pet if you desire. To make things easier for the traveler, many owners of holiday villas in Spain will
recommend staffing service companies that take care of the cleaning and housekeeping services. This
kind of service leaves you free to enjoy your holiday. Holidaying in a villa feels more comfortable than
in a hotel room because you'll not have to be cognizant about a strict checkout time. You can read
reviews about villas that talk about customization to meet certain demands or requirements of buyers.
At the present time more European buyers than North American buyers are taking advantage of these
Homes away from Homes. There are informative reviews about Spanish villas on the internet. Some
visitors consider Spanish a real estate is solid investment. They feel it provides them a place to stay
outside of their own country from the US to <a target='_blank' href="http://www.lisbon-and-
portugal.com/travel/portugal-football.html">Portugal</a>. They like the idea of a place to stay when
you're in Spain people who buy villas is may even have villas in other countries. They also liked the
idea of renting it to their friends or business associates. It might even be a way of generating income
for themselves. One other reason for buying a villa and renting it out to a friend or business associate
and see it as a hedge to the mortgage payments. See the financial pages on the Internet for reviews on
villas. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Digger Smith</div> An increasing number of people are turning
their attention to luxury holidays for their vacationing needs. Luxury holidays to the Caribbean,
Maldives, Mauritius, Dubai, Thailand, and Malaysia are actually becoming quite common. One look at
that destination list and it is easy to see why. Of course, a detailed look at each one of these vacation
spots definitely could not hurt. The Caribbean is probably one of the most well known luxury
destinations in all the world. It is the place to go when the weather where you are is cold and dreary.
With dazzling azure skies and heavenly blue waters, it is no wonder so many people flock to the
Caribbean islands. If you love the sun, the sand, and the water, then you should flock there as well.
With all the different activities, cultures, and cuisines represented there, you simply cannot lose. Some
people are not quite familiar with Maldives, which is a real shame. This group of islands can be found
to the south of India's Lakshadweep islands. Tourism is booming there right now. You can have your
pick between about thirty five different resorts for tourists. If you have never heard of Mauritius, you
need to start looking and learning. It is a primarily French island just off the coast of Africa. It is
located in the southwestern portion of the Indian Ocean. It is approximately five hundred and sixty
miles to the east of Madagascar. Mauritius is not the only island in this chain. St. Brandon Island,
Rodrigues Island, and Reunion Island are all nearby. Just to give you a clue as to how interesting the
island of Mauritius can be, it is the only location known for producing the dodo bird. More people are
decidedly more familiar with Dubai. It is much loved for its far reaching diversity. Although there are
a number of different cultures in Dubai, it is a very relaxing, stress free place. You can thus see why it
is such a popular destination for luxury vacations. The fact that many Bollywood movies are filmed
there also adds to its appeal. Thailand really needs no introduction; it needs no explanation either.
Although it is obviously about more than just Bangkok, the existence of that opulent, exciting city can
tell you everything you need to know about this exotic location. If you are looking for vibrancy and
excitement on your holiday, this is definitely where you need to go. Last but definitely not least, there
is Malaysia, which is located in Southeast Asia. Rather like Thailand, it can offer you the best of both
worlds. While it is easy to experience as much luxury and decadence as you like, that is not all there is
to offer. A very ethnic, very cultural location, the landscape and the environment will surely take your
breath away. No matter where you choose to go on a luxury vacation, you can definitely experience a
once in a lifetime opportunity. Remember, it is not necessarily out of your means. Remember as well
that the choices of where you can go are more varied than they have ever been. <div

<div class="byline" style="italic;">by Guy Morris</div> Everyday we use different types of public
transportation. We use buses, trains, airplane and more. The car probably the most used in all types of
public transportation. We use this to get us to our workplace to our home and to our school. Aside
from buying a car yourself you can also rent a car. There many reasons why people opt go for <a
href="http://www.goldcoastsurfboards.com.au/car_rentals.htm" target="_self">car rentals</a>. You
might be interested to know about different things that might happen or things that goes on when you
rent a car. One reason is to use <a href="http://www.alicante-spain.com/costa-del-sol/malaga-airport-
car-hire.html" target="_blank">car rental</a> for your vacation. This will give you the space to
yourself instead of clamoring with other tourists on buses. By renting a car you are more comfortable
and you can take your time and take in everything you can see. Just outside the airport you can see a
lot of Car Rental Company that are willing to serve your every need when it comes to car. Another
explanation why people rent a car is because there own car had broke down or in a shop to be fixed.
Remember that when you rent a car there are certain Terms and Conditions imposed by the company
to whoever will rent a car from them. Some companies have what they call a "Damage Waiver" that is
you have to pay if you damaged or something happens to the car that you have rented. If you get in an
accident you do not have to pay the company that own s the rented car if you are not the one in fault.
Instead let the other driver's insurance company pay the damage. You need to educate yourself to know
what to do if certain things happen that involves the car that you have rented. There is also what you
call a "Personal Accident Insurance" wherein it pays a fraction of your medical bill if ever you get into
an accident while using your rented car. "Fuel Charges" is something you should know about. It is
either you refuel the car after you used it or you can pay the company in advance so that after you used
the car they will be the one to refuel if. That is the reason you pay extra, that extra pay is for refueling
your car by the car rental company. There is also another insurance that covers your belongings while
you are in your vacation. It is important that you know your rights and privileges before renting a car.
On the other hand it is also your responsibility to educate yourself as to what the car rental company
covers. This will ensure that you will have a stress free partnership with your company. <div

Traveling With the Family

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Fred Ibenshaus</div> If you are planning a family holiday then
you may be wondering how to make it as enjoyable as possible. You need a place which will cater for
both you and the kids and you ideally need somewhere which will help you to keep them safe and
happy too. When looking at holidays with babies in mind, whether in Paris or <a target='_blank'
href="http://www.florence-italy-guide.com/florence-accommodation.html">Florence</a> there are a
number of factors which you need to look at. These include babysitting services, changing facilities
and breastfeeding laws within the country you are traveling to. So when you are planning to have that
perfect family vacation, always remember to keep these things in mind. Ensuring That You Have a
Good Holiday with the Children When you are traveling with your children it can get a little stressful.
There are various things that you should not forget to take with you, depending entirely upon the age
of the child. If you are traveling with babies then you will need diapers, bottles of milk and baby
wipes. These things really will come in as essentials on the journey there and whilst you are at your
holiday destination so it is important not to forget them. If you are traveling with older children then
bottled water is an excellent thing to have with you. You never know what is in the water that you are
drinking abroad and often our stomachs can become sensitive through drinking water in a different
country be it in Madrid, Spain or <a target='_blank' href="http://www.florence-italy-
guide.com/florence-accommodation.html">Florence, Italy</a>. So, plenty of bottled water and plastic
cups will come in really handy. Keeping Everyone Entertained Every parent knows just how
frustrating it can be traveling with the family. The children constantly ask when you will be arriving
and tensions really can mount up. So if your children and babies are old enough, play games with
them. Travel games such as 'eye spy' are excellent and they can really keep everyone entertained for
at least half an hour to an hour. The alphabet game is also a good one to try where you start with the
letter 'A' and give a topic for the game. For example, the topic could be 'cartoon characters' or 'movies'.
You then start with the letter 'A' and one person starts by giving a cartoon character for example,
starting with the letter A. If they get one then it moves to the next person and so on. If you cannot think
of one but someone else can then you lose that round. When nobody else can think of any more A's
you simply move on to B's and so on until you reach the end of the alphabet. This game can take hours
to play. Failing that you can always give the children different toys to play with. Coloring books come
in handy as do portable DVD players for older and younger children. Ipods are excellent for older
children and they can listen to their favorite music for hours. Overall remember to not drive for more
than eight hours a day. You need breaks if you are driving with the children and for your own safety
you should take breaks every 2-4 hours. This will help to ensure that you stay awake and that you feel
refreshed and ready to carry on. Traveling with the children really doesn't have to be a nightmare just
as long as you give them plenty of things to do. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

Travel Infos - Des Moines International Airport

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Marco Baumann</div> If so, you will need to find an
international airport to fly in and out of. If you live in or around Iowa, you may want to look into the
Des Moines International Airport. After you have fully researched and examined the airport, you will
likely find that it has everything that you want, as well as everything that you need. The Des Moines
International Airport, like many other airports, is only serviced by a limited number of airlines. Those
airlines include Allegiant Air, American Eagle, Comair-Delta, Continental Express, Midwest Airlines,
Northwest Airlines, United Airlines and, US Airways. If you are utilizing the Des Moines International
Airport for the purpose of flying out of the country, you will find that not all airlines offer international
flights. That is why it is advised that you keep this in mind when choosing an airline to fly with.
Namely, your packing. When doing so, it is advised that you keep all air travel rules in mind. In
addition to the air travel rules that you must follow domestically, you are advised to famialrize yourself
with the rules that can be found in other countries. It is the best way to ensure that you will be able to
have a pleasant experience, let alone even make it to your intended destination. You can easily do this
by contacting the Des Moines International Airport directly or by visiting the online website of the
Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This should be where you will receive all of your
boarding passes. If you are flying out of the country, you will need to have additional identification
documents. These documents may include your passport, a certificate of citizen ship, or a copy of your
birth certificate. The type of documents required will likely depend on where you are traveling to and
which airline you are flying with. In the event that you do not have the proper forms of identification,
you will likely be prohibited from proceeding any further. As long as you have the proper forms of
identification, you should be healthy to proceed to the next security checkpoint. At the Des Moines
International Airport, like most other international airports, you will find that at the airfield security
checkpoints are more intense than those for domestic flights. That is why it is extremely important that
you arrive at the airfield early. The Des Moines International Airport recommends that you arrive at
least two hours in advance. For international flights, they recommend that you arrive even earlier. In
the event that you are able to receive a ride to the airport from someone that you know, your travel will
be as easy as it could possibly be. If you are planning on driving yourself to the airport, you will have
to familiarize yourself with airport parking and fees. In the event that you need assistance getting to the
airport, you will find that a number of buses and taxi cabs service the area. If you have already made
your flight reservations, out of the Des Moines International Airport, you will want to familiarize
yourself with the airport layout, if you haven?t already done so. If you are unfamiliar with the airport,
you can easily examine its layout online. In fact, you can also print off a small, but detailed map of the
whole airport. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by John Miles</div> Just a few years back, a <a target='_blank'
href="http://cheapestairfarerates.net/how-to-find-airfare-deals/" title="How to Find Cheap Airfare
Deal">cheap airfare deal</a> was hard to come by. To fly, it would either have to be a business trip or
it would have to be a well-planned vacation trip. Today, it is now possible to get amazingly cheap
flights. The cost of an average lunch of burghers today can now get you some of the lowest airfares
between cities. In Europe and some North American cities, some of these extremely flights are easy to
come by. While long-distance flights, like those across continents are still fairly costly, the
competition among airlines and the realization that budget travel is profitable is bringing down these
charges. It would not be a surprise that in a few years, flying will actually be cheaper that any form of
travel. Getting fare airfare deals can be achieved in many ways. The fact that many airlines have a
budget travel package makes it possible for anyone to get extremely cheap airfare deals. By following
a few tactics, anyone can track down cheap deals, despite the ongoing recession. Due to a drop in
holiday travel, airlines have now gone to offer bonanza sales in the early months of the year to
encourage people to travel. Some of the lowest airfares can now be gotten from January through June.
Advertisements have shown that the trend applies also to international flights. What is more, these
cheap flights have come with less congestion in airports, planes and hotels. While it cannot be certain
how long the prevailing condition, the current situation allows for cheap travel. Another excellent
way to get airfare deals is by signing up for deal newsletters and email price alerts. Most airline
websites have a service that one can subscribe to get alerts when cheap flights are available. Signing up
for these alerts gives you an opportunity to be the first to know when a cheap airfare deal is made
available. Exclusive subscriber-only deals are also available by signing up for flyer programs. These
bargains are the main focus for most airlines since their foremost goal is to get people to visit their
websites. Look out for destination spots that have been hard hit by the recession. It is likely that travel
to these places is now affordable. Some of the lowest airfares can also be found by looking out for
these spots. Remember to 'shop around' and get the cheapest fares. You may have heard of 'destination
tourists'. Going through these dealers can get you a negotiated fare on certain routes. They work by
negotiating the fares with the airlines. Sine they negotiate for large number of tickets, you will likely
get a good airfare deal from them. Discounts for families, students and seniors are also offered by
many airlines. Get to know if you qualify to these discounts which can substantially cut down the
airfare. Another way is to go for last-minute web fares. Thought these may have some of the lowest
airfares, they are risky since it means once they don't go through, one may the flight entirely. <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Patricia Daniels</div> Bringing along kids during a trip abroad
could be more demanding for parents compared to the challenges often met at home. For one thing,
most kids are usually excited with the prospect that they are in a foreign place for the first time. They
will most likely ask you to tour around the new place and try out interesting spots like theme parks.
They might also demand"whether directly or indirectly"that you stay in one of the good and most of
the time expensive hotels they often see advertised in television. You actually have a choice, whether
youll choose to give in to their pleas or seek a compromise. If you have enough money to stay in the
hotel they want to stay in, then youll most likely give in to them. But if you want to stay somewhere
that is reasonable, then seeking a compromise with your kids is the way to go. The challenges met
when appeasing children is huge, and it usually gets bigger when both of you are in a foreign place.
Here are some tips that you might want to consider when you meet this dilemma: 1. Explain to them
why you cant stay in the kids resort they want. Plainly saying that you cant afford to stay in the hotel of
their choice is not enough. You have to tell them why you cant by explaining it to them, in terms which
kids can fully understand. If they get to see clearly why you cant then they will most likely understand.
When it comes to amounts and measurements, telling them the exact figure doesnt help them
understand. 2. Offer a reason that is believable. If you want to maximize the use of your money for
checking the place out and shopping for things that can only be found in the place you are staying in
for a short time, then tell the kids exactly that. 3. Offer something else. This is connected with the
second tip. After telling the kids that you want to set aside more money so that they can truly enjoy
their stay, offer them something which will benefit them as well. You might want to tell them that you
are planning to buy a souvenir which your kids can use and will also help them remember that they
were able to go to such place. 4. Keep your promise. Kids tend to remember very well what you
promised to them. Forgetting your little deal with them will make them restless throughout the entire
duration of the trip, and will most likely get at your nerves. Seeking a balance with what you want and
what the kids want is hard, but when done successfully, the trip is sure to be stress free for parents and
enjoyable. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

Fly To The Beaches for Some Summer Fun

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Leroy Calstard</div> Jetlag is a real condition that affects the
body both physically and mentally. It comes as a result of flying on an airplane into a different time
zone. This is one reason why many people choose to stay on land and go on tours for their vacations,
so they don't have to fly. Many people have to deal with getting seasick when they go on tours,
however. Not everyone has that option, however. Many businesspersons or professional athletes have
to fly for their profession to get where they need to be quickly. Our body has an internal clock telling
us what time it is, and when we fly, we are getting into a different time zone quicker than our body can
adjust. It's as if we are breaking the internal clock, so our body feels disoriented and tired until it can
catch up with the time. Other symptoms of jetlag are tiredness, poor concentration, headaches and
inability to sleep at night. Often people feel so sluggish their first vacation day from flying that all they
do is lay on the beaches all day trying to recuperate. There is the believe that jetlag is more severe
when you're traveling east than west because the rhythm of the body (circadian rhythm) extends up to
27 hours when flying west, thus helping the body to adjust to the changes and eliminating or lessening
jetlag. This is no quick cure for jetlag, but there are ways to deal with it. Try to spend as much time
outside as you can, as natural light seems to help the body adjust quicker. This may not be that difficult
if your vacation is centered around outdoor activities. Try to adjust your body schedule before you
leave by eating, sleeping and doing your regular activities at the time of the new time zone where you
will be traveling to. This is possible if you are going on an extended stay. For those that travel every
few days, however, this is almost impossible. Their bodies seldom have a chance to adjust. Athletes
or professionals whose performance is affected by jetlag may want to arrive at their scheduled
destination a few days ahead of time to allow their body to adjust to the time difference. This may not
be possible for some athletes that are on the go every few days, such as the NFL players during the
football season. The Major League baseball players also fly all the way across the United States for a
series of game. Their bodies just begin to adjust and they have to fly again. <div class='resource'><div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> Barbados is a Caribbean island, and is very
English in its ways because of being a British colony previously. Barbados has five separate parts, all
of which house something to attract the tourists. The first, Bridgetown, is the capital city of the island.
Central Barbados has a large limestone cave which is a huge sightseeing spot on the island, and in
addition has wildlife reserves that can be gone to. This is also the place to take part in golf and polo.
Eastern Barbados faces the Atlantic and has some very trendy beaches. This also has the top surfing
beach on the island, The Soup Bowl. Western Barbados is peaceful, and has some good beaches.
Lastly, Southern Barbados is filled with bars and restaurants, and is well-known for its fish fry. While
in Barbados, be sure you go to the numerous beaches and bathe in the sun. Additionally, you should go
scuba diving or snorkeling to see the astonishing marine life in the area. In addition you can also surf
here, and the majority of beaches will give you the chance to lease all snorkeling, scuba diving, and
surfing equipments. The cuisine in Barbados is exclusive. It is a combination of spices with diverse
flavors, but you can also discover English food that is not as hot. Be ready to eat something very Bajan
along with something very English. Make sure you try the Flying Fish which is an island icon. It is
fried and served with a yellow sauce that contains very hot peppers, so be careful when trying it.
Pepperpot is a local pork stew in a dark sauce. It's quite spicy and definitely not to be missed.
Additionally, make sure you try "cutters", which is a local sandwich. These can have flying fish in
them. Be advised that there are not many fast food chains on the island, and virtually none that serve
beef, as the local people do not have a lot of beef. So, you can see KFC on the island, but not a Burger
King. On Friday nights, you can go to the town of Oistins where the "Fish Fry" offered is
tremendously appetizing. You can also buy fresh fish from the market here. The place is open till late
with locals dancing till late night. This is one of the most popular spots on the island. The island has
some of the freshest water, so you can drink it from the tap. In addition Rum is extremely well-liked
and can be bought in every bar. The best sold brand is Mount Gay Rum. Additionally you can go on an
excursion of the Banks brewery, and though the tour is not that fun, there is a limitless amount of beer
accessible before it starts. If you are looking for some sun and sand, Barbados is the place for you.
The island has much to offer, so even if you get bored with the beaches, you can find entertainment
elsewhere. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

Tips For Taking Tropical Trips

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Rick Jenkenns</div> Spring is the time to plan your summer
vacation and if you are anything like me, you want to head somewhere warm and tropical! With that in
mind, here are some tips that you should consider before flying off to the Caribbean. What Months
To Go I'd say this one tops the list in importance. I say that because I have had many trips ruined by
weather and now days, I do my best to avoid the rainy season. You also might think about going to the
Caribbean during the winter, but do keep in mind that even way down there, it can get cold in the
evenings, and this may spoil some of your romantic fun. The key is to ask someone who has been to
your destination at certain times of the year and get their take on how the weather effected their stay.
Where To Go and What To Pay If you are not a big world traveler, you may find that most places in
the Caribbean are very similar in looks and service, but much different in pricing. As an example, a
trip to Cancun Mexico will offer you world class powdery sand beaches and crystal blue waters for a
price 30% less than a similar vacation to the Cayman Islands. Another idea is to ask your travel agent
what areas are new to travel but getting popular. These areas will offer big discounts. A great place for
this is Punta Cana. Accommodations The popularity of the "all inclusive" resort has hit an all time
high, and for good reason. Going all inclusive means you can pay one price and just go enjoy yourself.
There is nothing better than being able to kick back, eat and drink all you want and live in paradise for
a week. Just be sure you look at the ratings on the resort before booking to ensure they hae good food
and service. Don't Drink The Local Water I know you have heard to never drink the water in Mexico,
but really you should apply that advice to anywhere you go outside of the United States. You just don't
want to take a chance on ruining your vacation with bowel problems. Just find bottled water and you
are all good. Most of all, just go to get relaxed and recharged. Have fun, enjoy the beach and the pool
and start planning your next trip, while your first one is still in full swing. <div class='resource'><div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Stefan Stevenson</div> 1. Koh Lanta - perfect for the family
Koh Lanta is a beautiful and relaxed tropical island. In Sweden Koh Lanta is called the Swedish island,
and it is true a lot of Swedes do come here and tend to stay for a long time or come back year after
year. Koh Lanta's own Swedish school makes it easy for families with young childres to stay for long
periods of time, without having their kids getting behind in their studies. No matter your budget, at
Koh Lanta everyone can find accomodation to suit their needs, from the simplest "beach shack" living
to five star resorts. 2. Koh Phangan - get ready to party At Koh Panghan expect a lot of backpackers,
fast tempo and a famous party scene. This is not the place if you want to take it easy and relax with a
book, especially if you arrive during the full moon party week that happens every month. But if you
do want to party with a cool mix of people from all around the world, this is the place for you. The
other three weeks of the month however are much more quiet and there are beautiful beaches to
explore. If you want to get here, the easiest is by boat from Ko Samui or Surat Thani. 3. Koh Jum - a
small tropical heaven Koh Jum is a really quiet and beautifull island north of Koh Lanta. There is no
party or nightlife here but if you want to visit a tropical paradise island you should go here. There are
only around ten different places to stay and they are all cheap and simple living style bungalows. The
easiest way to get here is by boat from Krabi. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Rick Amorey</div> At one point in their lives, most Americans
have wanted to go to Hawaii. Who doesn't dream of the warm sunlight on your on their skin? Who
wouldn't want to experience the festive mood of the islands? And who doesn't want to enjoy amazing
beaches? Truly, Hawaii is a paradise to many people. Sadly, these same people will soon realize that
they have to eventually leave Hawaii and get back to their regular lives. Unless they plan to start
settling here permanently, they will have to go back to normalcy. It would be a shame to leave Hawaii
without so much as taking anything home with them. But then, why shouldn't you take something
back home? There are a good number of novelty items from Hawaii: In fact, I think the problem will
be choosing the right things to take home from the sheer multitude of choices. Even then, however, I
would recommend having as wide a selection as possible when shopping for your souvenir. If you're
already preparing to go home from Hawaii, don't rush to buy: You will end up buying on the first
souvenir shop that you see. Instead, broaden your options so you can choose the best one for you. I
would recommend something else instead; mainly, try going to a craft show in Hawaii. There, you'll
have a wide selection of things to buy, as the works of various craftspeople are showcased. Your eyes
will brighten with the rich culture of the Hawaiian Islands. Now all you have to do is to find a craft
show occurring near where you're currently staying. To find craft shows near where you're staying, I
recommend searching for Hawaii Craft Shows in the Internet. I'm sure you'll quickly find a site that
catalogs all craft shows for the year, and by going there, you can find the right craft to take home.
Planning to go to Hawaii? In this case, it would be best to search for the ideal craft show before going
on your trip. That way, you can set plans so that the time and place of the craft show will be
convenient for you. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> If you're a fan of talcum white sands and
crystal blue lagoons, then you should surely visit Mauritius which not only has great, memorable and
worth seeing sights but also high class five star hotel chains that offer impeccable services. In case you
are looking for a luxury vacation, Mauritius is the ultimate place for you, and it is a guarantee that you
won't be disappointed. During your visit, you would be able to experience great waterfalls, the
beaches, parks, forested mountains, diving, and forested mountains. The bike rides are also highly
enjoyable and offer a lot of adventure. All in all, Mauritius offers an idyllic holiday and you ought to
enjoy every moment of it. Biking can expose you to a few bumps, but there is no better way to see and
enjoy the countryside than on a bike. The entire experience of staying in Mauritius during holidays is
soothing and very relaxing, because even if you do not go around and explore, you can always lie
down on the sand and enjoy the sun and the breeze. The peace in the atmosphere on the island is very
relaxing and tempts one to just lie down idly. Dodo which has much reflection on Mauritius has
wiped out, but still it keeps Mauritius tourism energetic as Mauritius is the only place where it lives. It
is the only place where the dodo ever existed, and the extermination of the dodo also shows the
vulnerability of Mauritius, which is one of the most attractive islands around the globe. You can see
scores of dissimilar natural scenes and waterfalls along with numerous flowers. There are lots of
luxury resorts in Mauritius where you can dwell and get supreme handling and feel out of the ordinary
and cared. There are latest resorts establishing all the time, and Mauritius is a place that has traveller
always coming. Mauritius gets most of its wealth from tourism. There are also various restaurants in
Mauritius which focus at local, Italian, French, and other food. The food accessible by these
restaurants is tasty and a pleasant dining experience. If you get exhausted after all the travelling
around and physical action, there are numerous spas where you can obtain a massage and rest your
aching muscles. The spa that has the signature massage in all of Mauritius is The Mandara where you
would get a kneading that would make you feel at the top of the world. You'll feel so peaceful that you
would feel inept of thinking for a while. The Victoria Amazonica water lilies located in the
Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens are something worth seeing. Other than that, you should also
experience the underwater landscape. Mauritius is a place that offers - both natural and luxurious
things, and experiences that you'll remember for the rest of your life. So, you should visit the place
where the Dodo existed, and explore it. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About

Always Know The Items You Shouldn't Take to Planes

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by CheapX</div> Whether you like it or not, there are many things
you shouldn't (can't) bring on board an airplane. Some are due to the TSA, some are because of airline
restrictions but in either case, no is no. Here are a whole bunch of things you shouldn't bring. I know
it's quite expensive to check in your golf clubs nowadays but you can't bring those on board. Actually,
anything similar like hockey sticks, skis or baseball are all not allowed just in case you start wanting to
beat someone up with it. Knives are a no no on flights. When I was younger, I remember having a
tiny model knife that came with a purchase of a comic book. When customs saw it, they told me to
throw it away even though it wasn't even sharp. Actually, anything sharp is not allowed. Blades,
cutlery for cooking, razors, scissors are all not allowed. They are just really afraid of mad people I
guess. I wonder why it's different than people riding a bus or train. Anything flammable is not good
either. Basically, if you see that skull with two bones that forms a cross at the bottom, just keep them
away from anything flight related. Even toy guns are not allowed. They don't want any questions
about whether it's real or not so they just said "no" to any type of guns. Other things that you cannot
bring are stuff like weed killers, insecticides, viral organisms, car batteries, drain cleaners etc. Lighters
and matches are also not allowed (nor is fireworks). There's no smoking in the cabins nowadays
anyway so just keep them in your luggage to avoid any potential hassle (or worst yet, needing to throw
them away) <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Ed J Price</div> Underwater digital cameras have become an
essential part of scuba diving equipment for professional and amateur scuba divers. The underwater
world of scuba diving offers so many opportunities to capture once-in-a-lifetime photos of undersea
life, vivid colors of coral reefs or a remote shipwreck. With underwater digital cameras it is possible to
capture these images in a life-like picture that can be shared with friends or sold professionally.
Common underwater digital cameras: The Sea Life Dc800, Canon G10, Sony A200 Digital SLR
Camera and the Nikon D3 are just some of the more standard or popular dive cameras available. These
digital cameras have been revolutionized to capture clean and crisp pictures that really reflect true
images of marine life. These diving cameras can withstand the pressure of many meters underwater.
Top of the Art Compact Dive Cameras: The Canon G10 and Canon housing WP- DC28 is one of
Canons most advanced compact cameras that sells for under $500. It is a well-rounded underwater
digital camera package that gives richly detailed, high resolution images and has an excellent LCD that
is large and crisp. With a superb wide-angle lens and lots of dedicated controls, it gives great
performance for even the most serious photographers. The WP DC28 underwater dive camera housing
enables you to take the Powershot G10 to depths of 130 feet. Sony A200 Digital SLR Camera with
Ikelite #6841.20 housing is an entry level digital camera that captures enough detail for photo quality
prints and offers an auto-focus system. It has a large view finder, wireless flash control and gives good
detail at the lowest sensitivities. It has solid construction and offers all of the essentials in an
affordable package. Teamed with Ikelite housing, you get a compact; clear underwater housing that
give corrosion-free performance up to 200 feet. Number one Performance with Number one Cameras:
With sleek, modern and high tech functionality the SeaLife DC800 is one camera for scuba divers.
Colorful pictures can be taken by using the 5 new dive-specific color correction modes. Before taking
pictures underwater the camera is set on Sea Mode, this restores lost colors which can be lost when
diving under 200 feet. The rubber within the camera acts as a shock protection for the camera. The
SeaLife has a quick shutter for fast action shots and long lasting battery for a full day of photography.
The Nikon D3 is a bit expensive than its competitors but it is top of the line digital camera. Together
with the Sea MDX-D3 housing it makes for a perfect combination for professional photographers. This
camera is popular with professionals because it has an auto focus that is fast and accurate, a huge
viewfinder and auto exposure that is dead on perfect. Ergonomically built this camera housing is built
so a photographer has one finger on the camera the other finger shooting pictures. The Sea underwater
housing and the Nikon D3 together is very impressive. To capture your underwater memories, you
need to look at the advanced, underwater digital cameras on the market and find one to fit your budget.

Can You Drive a Rental Car All the Way Around Australia?

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Amy Nutt</div> Are you interested in taking a driving tour
around Australia? If you are, then you are in luck because it is very possible. But if youre taking a
rental car, you need to take your distance into consideration. Keep in mind that Australia is a large
country with plenty to see, so you need to set aside a lot of time and check with the rental car company
about the mileage you will be placing on the car. When you tell the rental car company where you are
going, they may object to one of their cars being taken the distance. To drive around Australia, the
distance is 20,000km. This means it would take 200 hours of continuous driving to make it all the way
around. In other words, it would take 8 days for you to finish your quest, but you would not be able to
stop and enjoy the sites if you did this. However, the concern of the rental car company is the distance
being placed upon the car. That is a lot of wear and tear. For other car rental companies, they may not
care if youre willing to put up the cash for it. If they give you a quote based on factors that include age,
whether or not you need insurance, and mileage; the further you go, the more expensive it is going to
be. Sightseeing Rental car companies also base the amount of the rental off of the amount of time you
will have the car. If you are going to sightsee while driving around Australia, it can take up to 40 days
to see everything. Then again, it depends on where youre stopping and how long you intend on staying
there. It is probably ideal to give yourself about two months to do and see everything that there is to do
and see, but you have to make sure that it is okay with the car rental company. Since many car rental
companies do have monthly plans and will allow you to rent for as long as you want without any
restrictions, you may not have an issue. Just make sure you cover all of your bases before you drive
away with the car. You dont want to come back two months later with an extremely high amount of
mileage on the car that the car rental company did not expect. Some of these companies will only rent
a car beyond a certain travel distance, and then sell it through their own car lot or through another. So
make sure they are not surprised. The perfect car When you find the perfect company, you have to
find the perfect car. Since youre going to be driving all the way around Australia, you need one that is
spacious and comfortable. Many individuals will opt for a van because of the amount of room they
consist of. You can store weeks of clothing and other supplies, everyone has enough legroom, and you
can even lie down if you need to at some point on the trip. Make sure you talk to the rental car
company about a van or another spacious vehicle that you can withstand spending hundreds of hours in
for the next couple of months. So now you know that you can drive a rental car all the way around
Australia. It can be quite a fun and rewarding trip. You just need to make sure you do ample planning,
make the rental car company aware of your intentions, find the perfect vehicle, and have a lot of fun.
You might be quite amazed at how incredible a trip around Australia really is. <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Ron Otaku</div> The culture of Japan is one of a kind and has
great variety. It has millions of fans globally because of its ability to both fascinate and excite many
individuals. The Japanese have also been able to adapt modern culture and made it their own, while
retaining much of their past identity. This cannot be more true than in her export of fashion. The
Japanese never rest on their laurels and are always on the cutting edge when it comes to designing and
dressing up. This has meant becoming an industry leader especially in the surrounding regions. There
is no lack of invention and variety in Japanese fashion. Its street fashion has already seeped into and
has a place in both Asian and Western youth culture. Other unique left-field niches have also taken
root in the global world such as cosplay, which was borne out of the popularity of anime. Japanese
popular music is another of its global export that has taken a life of its own. Within Asia, it is certainly
the mainstream music form that has the largest followings within the region. It has steadily grown in
authority in Western countries as well, due in no small part to the relentless marketing by the record
labels. The Japanese language has also prospered as more foreigners are taking up lessons in order to
understand the various Japanese hobbies they have. Music is one such area where fans have flocked to
take up courses so they can know what their favorite J-pop stars are singing about. The more artistic
cultures have also had their own followings throughout history. Japanese calligraphy and artists have
their own distinct flavors. They are not found in similar forms in other Asian countries, which is why
fans sometimes prefer them. Those who love their culture will know how obsessed the Japanese are
with all things cute. It is symbolic for a country and her people to use one phrase to describe just about
everything to their fancy. From furniture to candy, it is common to hear the term "kawaii" when the
Japanese have positive feelings about the item. There are so many sides to the Japanese culture and
that is why it continues to foster growing interest in it from people across the world. There is no reason
for anyone to not spend some time exploring it, and that includes you too. You might be pleasantly
surprised once you do that. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the

Please complement this information with reviews in trip advisor before you decide which hotel to go
for in Havana. Santa Isabel The typical colonial residence offers spacious rooms that are decorated

building in the old town of Havana at the intersection of both boulevards Paseo del Prado and

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> Are you looking to have an exhilarating
getaway this year? Well, head off to Antigua! Antigua is the main Leeward Island. It is closely linked
to Britain and has 365 gorgeous beaches. With a rich culture and customs, Antigua has a lot to offer
to its guests. Recognized as having some of the greatest hotels in the world, your trip to Antigua will
surely be outstanding as well as occupied with activities. The calypso bands, music, awe-inspiring
sights, and beautiful sunsets all make an amazing package for you to relish on your Antigua holiday.
Antigua is packed with resorts and restaurants at every spot, and offers tremendous nightlife. The
island of Antigua is a magnificent mixture of coral, limestone, and volcanic rock. Due to this, you will
find rainforests and picturesque mountain ranges, as well as crystal waters here. Its sister island
Barbuda adds to its significance even more. Most important on the 'must-see' list should be the
English Harbour National Park area. It covers Nelson's Dockyard and Shirley Heights. These are great
spots of the island's history. On Sundays in particular, go to Shirley Heights for a good time. You can
talk to Safari companies about touring the veiled ruins and old-world villages of the island's arresting
central parts. However, if you want to drive by yourself, do remember to go by rainforest trail called
Fig Tree Drive, Betty's Hope. You can also take a day trip to Barbuda from Antigua, and enjoy twin
trips. At the island's capital St. John's, you will have numerous places to eat delicious food of all
kinds and make the best of duty-free shopping. Not only this, there are terrific bars and restaurants
including Caf Napoleon, Pizzas in Paradise, and C&amp;C Wine Bar to hang out and eat in. Despite
this, the amazing beaches of Antigua remain the most important thing for a large number of tourists. A
majority of them are on the west coast and all of them are open for tourists. All beaches have
something unique about them. Because of this, the best part is to look at the many beaches and
discover the uniqueness of each. On the northwest coast lies Dickenson Bay and Runaway Bay. Both
these bays are completely developed with superb resort beaches. Fort James, and Deep Bay are the
closest to the capital of the island. Throughout winter, people choose to visit Galley Bay for surfing.
As well as these beaches the beaches at Hawksbill are stunning. On the southwest and south coast of
the island of Antigua are located beaches that are not very busy because of the hilly area. Here amazing
beaches, including Fryes Bay and Darkwood Beach, are present. Rendezvous Bay, and Doigs Beach
especially, are not very packed. If you plan to go to a beach for relaxation purpose alone, the best one
is Pigeon Point. You must also go to Halfmoon Bay, the national park, on the east coast, the southeast
side. Two of the finest places to go with family are the national park and Long Bay, which are the best
beaches for families. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by David Hughes</div> Australia is one of the most mesmerizing
countries to visit for an escape. This superb country is so big that each of its corners has something
exclusive to offer to its visitors, and all of its cities are incredibly well planned and stunning, which
makes them a spot to visit at least once. With a lot of natural wonders, wide open lands, deserts,
forests, grassy vistas, mountains, and beaches, this island continent has plenty to offer. Cities like
Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, and Canberra also offer various visiting
attraction options for holiday-makers. You will love Sydney because of its well planned streets and
many other offerings counting fashion, food, art, and design. The Sydney Opera House is one of the
wonders of the contemporary world, and is a renowned building of Australia. It is also one of the most
eminent performing arts venues in the world, and here you can enjoy world's famous theatrical,
musical, and dance performances. The Australian Museum is also located in Sydney. Here you can
observe natural history and anthropology and saunter through one of the oldest museums in the country
at the same time. You can gaze at collections of vertebrate and invertebrates, zoology, palaeontology,
and anthropology on a stay here. Melbourne is the place to go if you are looking for a culinary
holiday, or looking to immerse yourself in culture or sport. It is said to be the most cultured city in
Australia, and has beautiful Victorian architecture, museums and galleries, theatres, and parks.
Brisbane needs to be another spot on your Australian adventure, as this is where you will enjoy
shopping, strolling along the boardwalks, and revelling in the amazing nightlife. The Great Barrier
Reef, off the coast of Queensland, is another must-visit site in Australia. It is one of the natural
wonders of the world and an extremely popular tourist destination. Here you can enjoy scuba diving
and boating in the warm clear waters. The Gold Coast is a coastal area of Queensland, and is called a
Surfers Paradise. It has a sunny climate, great surfing beaches, and a beautiful skyline. With its active
nightlife and many tourist spots, this is another must see place in Australia. You should also visit the
Belair National Park near Adelaide, as here you can see the Old Government House, Park Nursery,
Playfor Lake, and the Adventure Playground. You can also go to Daintree National Park, which is
home to tropical birds, reptiles, and countless species of wildlife. The fauna in Australia is unique, and
you will see species that you will not see anywhere else in the world, only perhaps in a zoo. You can
see wallabies, kangaroos, and koalas, and will come to know and understand what they look like in
their natural habitat. Australia is a huge country, so it will be impracticable to see the whole lot in one
trip. But try and cover one shore during your stay. Additionally, make sure you observe all of the
above mentioned spots as they are some of the very best that the country has to offer. <div

Travel Infos - International Air Travel Rules

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Daniel Marer</div> Are you planning on attending a business
meeting or taking a vacation out of the country? If so, you will need to book a seat on an international
flight. Have you ever been on an international flight before? If not, there are a number of factors that
you should first consider, such as the international air travel rules. In fact, it is not only recommended
that you do, it is required that you do. Not knowing all of the international air travel rules could land
you in a boatload of trouble. While there are in-flight travel rules that you must abide by, there are
also other rules. These other rules are ones that apply in all airports, including international airports.
Since you will arrive at the airport first, before actually boarding your airplane, it is advised that you
first familiarize yourself with these common air travel rules. As previously mentioned, there are a
number of airport rules that exist in all airports, regardless of whether those airports are international
airports or domestic airports. These rules commonly include a list of prohibited items, the screening of
all baggage, the removal of your shoes, and the screening of passengers. In addition to these airport
travel rules, which can be found in almost all airports in the United States, there are some air travel
rules that only apply to international airports. The number one rule that you must abide by at an
international airport is identifying who you are. Since airline officials and airport security cannot
guarantee that you are who you claim to be, you will need to show proof of identification. Depending
on where you are traveling to, this identification may need to be more than a simple government issued
identification card or driver?s license. In fact, you may also need to supply your birth certificate, a
passport, a visa, or a certificate of citizenship. For additional information on which proofs of
identification are required, you are advised to contact the international airport or airline that you will
be using. Once you have prefabricated it though all of the international airfield security checkpoints,
you should be healthy to begin boarding your plane. When boarding your airplane, you are advised to
do it in a calm, but timely matter. As soon as your airplane is in the air, you need to follow all
instructions given by the pilot or flight attendants. This includes staying in your seat until it is
innocuous to get up. In the event that you refuse to cooperate with the airline staff, you may be putting
yourself and other passengers in danger. While it is important to understand all international air travel
rules, there are many travelers who are unsure why those rules are so important. They are important
not only for your safety and well being, but for the safety and well being of others. Although it may
seem ridiculous at the time, but if you refuse to stay in your seat or you are caught arguing with airport
security, you will find that you are automatically labeled a terror suspect. This is largely due in part to
the fear of another terrorist attack. Once this happens it is often difficult or impossible to go back to
normal. Depending of the rule that you violated, you may only receive a warning, but you could also
receive much more. Should you be labeled as a suspicious traveler, you may be detained by airport
security or local authorities for an undetermined amount of time. The same can be said for
international air travel rule violations in the air. Once your airplane is able to land, often at the nearest
available airport, you will be held for questioning. Since you can never guarantee the outcome of your
actions, it is important that you stay on your best behavior when at an international airport or aboard an
international flight. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Robert M Freeman</div> Majorca, translated to Mallorca in
Spanish is the major Balearic Island and a must-visit place for beach aficionados with its sun-drenched
beaches and greater than five hundred kilometers of coastline. The island has beautiful landscapes,
mountains, and wonderful Mediterranean food. It receives around ten million tourists a year, and as a
result has wonderfully developed infrastructure to aid the tourists so that the tourism economy keeps
growing. The island is definitely not all about the beaches and you can explore its lush landscapes as
well. The further you are from the coast, the cheaper it is, so that is definitely a good reason to go
towards the centre of the island. The Palma de Mallorca is the island's capital and really merits a visit.
In its old city you will be able to see a lot of architectural wonders, the astounding culture, and
Mediterranean food. There is a well-known cathedral which is worth viewing along with the city center
which is nice to walk around. Serra de Tramuntana are the immense mountains that are found along the
north-west coast and can be gone to for small hikes and charming sights. Fredric Chopin spent a little
time in the village of Valldemossa. If you are in the mountains you should go to Soller and Port de
Soller which is a gorgeous town as well. You can also hire bicycles and cycle around the island. You
may even see a few professional teams training here. Playa de Palma is the most busy tourist spot on
the island, and you can in addition tour the Dragon Caves which are a especially well-liked sight to
see. When in Palma, discover less busy beaches. The five kilometer stretch is extremely busy and you
may not have fun there. The nicest one is on the blue bus line at Western terminus, and is called Playa.
It has a beautiful cove and even a restaurant on the beach. Nevertheless, if you are in Mallorca, the
key place to go is the south and east coasts but anticipate places to be extremely packed throughout the
tourist season. You can discover private beaches, but be conscious that you will have to walk extra and
will not have easy access to restaurants and cafes there. The best-looking beach is Es Trenc close to the
Colonia de Sant Jordi, but you can absolutely travel around the island to find even superior beaches.
S'Abulfera has a salt marsh. This is near the town of Alcudia. Here, you can see a great number of bird
species and enjoy nature at its very best. You can find heron, ducks, and warblers here. The cliffs of
Fortmentor are a great place to go bird watching, and you might even be able to see an Elenora's
Falcon, which is a very rare bird to spot. If you are visiting for the summers, walk to the Bendinat
Golf Course on Saturday evening to have fun at an on the house classical concert. If you enjoy rock
climbing, you should tour Deep Water Psicobloc which is one of the greatest spots for rock climbing
over deep water. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Ava Mason</div> Starry North African nights, belly dancers, fire
eaters, sword swallowers and couscous are just some of the fare on offer in Marrakech, Morocco.
Hop across the Mediterranean to the North African country of Morocco and you'll find a land of
pulsating ancient cities, laid-back beach resorts and imposing natural sights including the Atlas
Mountains and Sahara Desert. Often a strange, unpredictable land, Morocco offers a tantalising new
experience around ever corner. Start exploring at the very heart of Morocco - in the ancient trading
town of Marrakech. Dusky red city walls encase the town, whilst inside soaring minarets of palaces
cast their shadows upon the main square - Djemma el-Fna. The square is where the town's main trading
takes place. Here you can mix with fire-eaters, belly dancers and the occasional snake-charmer if
you're brave enough. The square offers more than the usual tourist cliches. Yes there's the odd snake
charmer and belly dancer but this is the principal trading point. Here you will find many more locals
than tourists - all going about their daily rituals of collecting water and food. An evening of
entertainment As the sun goes down, story-tellers, sword swallowers and henna tattooists take to the
square. Small groups of musicians strike up a tune whilst belly dancers twist their hips to the beat. As
the evening turns into a starry North African night the food vendors move in, setting up their stalls
lined with wooden benches lit by lanterns. They busy themselves preparing great vats of couscous,
kebabs, fried fish and display dishes of snails, tripe soup and pigs' trotters. For 2 we you can enjoy a
feast of spicy delicacies with not a hamburgers in sight. A stroll in the Medina The Medina with its
fascinating souks, selling almost anything you care to name, is also an exciting place to spend time
(and money). There's an atmosphere of vitality and animation in the long narrow lanes that seem
almost impossible to navigate and the area they cover appears vast. In fact it is fairly compact and once
you have made a couple of visits finding your way around becomes easier. There are souks selling
pottery, Berber jewellery, traditional kaftans, soft leather slippers, spices, herbal remedies for anything
that might ail you, perfumes, sweet Moroccan cakes and, of course, rugs and carpets. Make a point of
heading out of Marrakech to explore further afield. The beautiful Atlas Mountains and Sahara desert
are within easy reach of a day's excursion. For a peaceful escape from the bustle of Marrakech then
head to the coastal resort of Agadir with its fabulous golden beaches or Essaouira with its charming
fishing port. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

Concious Of Traveling Safely

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Paul Mellor</div> Traveling, like most Americans do, is just one
of the things that I love doing frequently and that's something I'm sure you'd love to do, too. But
traveling does not mean that you would be safe. Escaping from our job and other stressful activities is
just something that we want to happen whenever we think of having a vacation. Today let me give you
some safety hints on how to have a safe vacation break. It is most likely that you would carry a
luggage with you when you journey but see to it that putting your address in your case is something
that you would never do. Your case might have a tag on it so make sure that only your name and phone
number are written in case it gets lost. So if someone had found it, he is sure to call you and return the
luggage. The reason for this is because if the thief finds something precious in your baggage, he might
think that chances are that there are more precious things at home. The safe way to do it is to put only
your name, first and surname of course. Keeping your baggage clean of essential papers is highly
advisable. Just keep things like clothes in your baggage, which even if lost, would not hurt you that
much. Your luggage is not a safe place to keep your important possessions like your credit cards,
passports and other precious documents. As I mentioned in the last tip, if someone steals this, they can
have access to all of your information. Be less boastful about your cash: Usually, those who love to
show off to the people that they have all the luxuries are those travelers who have the most debts. For
example, if you wear some dazzling items of jewelry, a stalker may decide to follow you through, and
soon you could land in some very unpleasant situations. You're just another traveler in an airport. Just
think about it: how much do you really care about other peoples' lifestyles? Clean out the wallet:
Before you go on your next trip, try and clean out your notecase. [travel] professionals recommend that
it is unsafe to carry multiple charge cards or other papers, and it is best that you leave them at home in
a safe and secure place. Carrying at least one charge card is more than sufficient. Make a note of the
number that you need to contact in case the credit card you carry gets stolen so that you can call
immediately to cancel out any transaction. There are so many points I can list when it comes to
traveling and safety so it's up to you to use your best judgment. Being not to flashy and avoiding the
flaunting of worthwhile or high-priced things are just some of the most essential things to consider.
Bring things that you can afford to lose! If you can follow this concept, you'll be the safest traveler
around! <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div> <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by R. Maurette</div> I will uncover in this article one way around
getting <a target='_blank' href="http://www.quest2cuba.co.uk/offers/Default.aspx">cheap Cuba
holidays</a>. In last few years Cuba has become more and more expensive but there are some ways
around it to cut down prices The transfers between locations in Cuba are what make an itinerary more
or less expensive. Tour operators selling Cuba will simply use taxis to move you from A to B simply
because there are no other options available that they can book and profit form it. If you want to cut
down your holiday costs then allow me to introduce you to Viazul. Viazul is a Bus Station with
terminals in almost every province with tourist attractions in Cuba. Their tickets are very cheap. So
let?s compare prices. Let?s take a transfer from Trinidad to Havana. Havana and Trinidad is one
combination that will be present on almost every tailor made itinerary. A private taxi from Trinidad to
Havana will cost you anything from 160 GBP to 180 GBP and a ticket with Viazul cost just 20 GBP. I
hope you can appreciate how ridiculous the difference in price is. Now think how much you could safe
if you were to go all around the island using this advice. You could be saving hundreds on pounds.
Viazul service is very punctual and the coaches are very comfortable. The only inconvenience is that it
takes a bit longer compare to a taxi journey but hey we are taking about huge savings here. One
common mistake most people do is not to read about the destinations they are thinking of visiting
before hands. Distances in Cuba are quite long. I could take you up to 6 hours from Havana to Trinidad
by Taxi. I will of course recommend you to take taxis if what you want is total comfort and relaxation
and if money is not an issue but if you want to save good money then Viazul is the best and only
option you will have. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Martin Pelaez</div> Make sure that you are flexible when it
comes to your itinerary. You want to be able to have a secondary set of dates in the event you cant get
your first choice. You may want to bundle hotel and car rentals because a lot of times that is a way of
getting a cheaper rate for last minute travel. For bargain hotel rooms that are available at the last
minute, you dont have to get anything that is substandard. There are plenty of hotels that are not
always reserved to the maximum capacity. A lot of times, there will usually be some rooms available.
You can stay in a nice hotel and pay a bargain price for it. The only way for you to get that price is to
ask for it. You will not get anyone that will offer you lower rates. All they can do is tell you yes or no.
At least you would have made an attempt to ask. You can ask when you are getting ready to reserve
your room, and confirm those rates when youre about to check into your room. If you are able to get a
cheap hotel rate, you will have more money to spend on yourself. Most, if not all people that book
hotel rooms only stay in the hotel when theyre sleeping. Make sure that you have an airline
reservation prior to booking your room at a hotel. There is more advantage in having a packaged
travel deal. They usually have more to offer the last minute traveler. If you make reservations for a
hotel room first, you will miss out on whatever savings are available from the packaged travel deal.
Check for family discounts and frequent guest plan packages. You will have to ask what is available.
The bargains are out there; however, if you dont ask, you wont know. If you dont have to stay in a
pricey hotel, there are always other options. Try bread and breakfast lodging, motels and self-
sufficient apartments. You can also inquire about guesthouses. In order to cut down on food costs,
most hotels offer continental breakfast. Theres no extra charge for this, so take advantage of it if the
hotel offers it. Since hotels are not always booked to capacity, you should inquire about
cancellations. Also ask the hotel about last-minute check-in specials. For sure you can be surprise
about how much money you can save. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Peter Wilson</div> When planning an Alaskan adventure
vacation, you need to take several things into consideration including your health, the equipment you
will need, and the dates you plan to travel. Depending on what you are planning to do while on
vacation in the Alaska, you may want to get back into shape first, especially when rafting, kayaking,
and hiking in the Yukon. While you may think you are in shape, if you don't prepare a few months in
advance, you will be in a lot of pain once you begin your trek. Visit a doctor also so you can get a
clean bill of health before taking a strenuous journey into a strange area. If you are planning to
participate in a few different activities during your vacation, you should call in advance to see if all the
equipment is provided or if you will need to bring your own. Many places rent equipment so you don't
have to bring it with you. But knowing in advance will make your trip more enjoyable. If you have to
bring your own equipment, consider finding another place to stay or contact the airline to see what you
will be able to bring with you on the plane. The dates you plan to travel should be made a few months
in advance, especially if you are planning to travel <a target='_blank' href="http://www.alicante-
spain.com/alicante_map.html">the map of</a> Alaska during the busy season. Also, when booking
your trip, make sure you are eligible for a full refund if you need to cancel or the weather is not
suitable for traveling. Because you will be traveling to a location that experiences different types of
weather, being able to cancel the trip without running the risk of losing money can offer you peace of
mind. Make sure you can reschedule your trip is possible because visiting Alaska is one place you will
not want to miss. If you need to reschedule your trip, make sure you do so as soon as possible. Many
refund policies have specific dates as to when you can reschedule your trip and not lose money. If you
need to pay an extra fee, you may want to cancel the trip or pay the fee and reschedule.
Unfortunately, things happen in life that can prevent you from moving along with your plans. For these
occasions, purchasing travel insurance from your travel agent or outside insurance company may be
the answer. Travel insurance covers you for many issues including cancelations. Before you board the
plane and travel to Alaska for your adventure trip, you should make sure you have all the paperwork
you will need in order to participate in certain activities during your trip. Emergency contacts, valid
driver's license, and a copy of your health insurance policy or medical cards may be necessary. You
may also have to sign a release form which states the company is not responsible for anything that
happens to you while you are on the trip. Having adequate health insurance is important, so make sure
your policy is up to date. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Emery Noile</div> Alaska has been a source of awe and mystery
for ages. It also has some of the best skiing in the world. Of all the ski destinations in Alaska, the
Alyeska Resort is among the best. The area gets an average of 631 inches of snow each year, with a
maximum elevation of 2,751 feet and a 2,501 foot vertical drop. Although the Alyeska Resort offers
some of the best skiing in the world, you won't find the slopes overly crowded, and there are no long
lines for the lifts. There are nine lifts, consisting of six chair lifts, two surface lifts, and one cable car
line. There are 68 trails for beginners, intermediates, and experts, with most of the trails designed for
intermediate skiers. Night skiing at the Alyeska Resort brings another element of thrill and adventure
to your Alaskan ski getaway. In addition to the snow capped mountains and hanging glaciers, you'll
also see those famous Northern Lights. These incredible views are part of the reason why the Alyeska
resort is ranked number nine on Skiing Magazine's list of the top twenty-five killer ski trips. The
season begins at the Alyeska Resort in the middle of November, and runs through the middle of April.
This region of Alaska boasts the longest daytime areas in the United States, with approximately sixteen
hours of daylight each day during April. Throughout December, though, there are only about seven
hours of daylight -- which makes night time skiing necessary if you are going to get in the time that
you want to spend on the slopes. If your perfect vacation includes luxurious rooms and fine dining, the
Alyeska Prince Hotel is the place to be. You'll enjoy nightly entertainment on site, or you can venture
out to take in more nightlife at other nearby hotspots. If tubing is your idea of fun, be sure to visit the
Glacier Tubing Park. With two lanes of terrain and a surface lift, everyone in the family will have a
blast at the tubing park. For snowboarding devotees, there is the Alyeska Terrain Park. There are more
winter activities to enjoy in and around the Alyeska Resort including heli-skiing, ice climbing, ocean
cruising tours, flight seeing, dog sledding, back country skiing, mountaineering and polar bear
watching. The ultimate winter vacation is yours to experience at the Alyeska Resort. Bundle up, brave
the elements and then head back to the hotel for some pampering. Treat yourself to a taste of Alaska
and discover how thrilling skiing can really be. Alyeska Resort has activities for the entire family to
enjoy and countless unique sights and attractions. It really is the ultimate Alaskan ski getaway. <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Vin Armstrong</div> If you're into traveling, you know that there
is often quite a bit of time and effort involved in planning out your trip. Wouldn't it be nice to cut back
on this planning, and save some money in the process? That's what going with a vacation package
allows you to do. By getting your flight, hotel, airfare, and other trip expenses booked all at once, you
can save time and money. It's quite a deal if you can shop around. You can find vacations intened for
all kinds of different people. You can get golf vacations, adventure vacations, and a whole lot more. If
you just want to kick around in the Carribean for a couple weeks, that's an option too. As it turns out,
the best way to find a great package is to get one in your niche. If you want to visit a given destination,
go for it, but often the richest travel experiences can be centered around experiences. For example, if
you're into experiencing nature, consider getting a Costa Rica vacation package. Costa Rica has
amazing national parks packed full of amazing plan and wildlife that can be experienced by beens of a
convenient vacation package. If you're just looking to relax, cruise packages are a popular option.
These go to a wide variety of destinations, so its pretty much up to you to decide what you want to do.
Alaska and the Carribean are popular choices, but don't limit yourself to just these, as there are many
other places to go. As I said before, you can save money with a vacation package, but make sure you
need everything you're paying for. For example, if you're not planning on driving, having a rental car
included is kind of a waste. Just be sure you look over these things before ordering. So, I hope this
have given you just a quick overview of what your options are when it comes to finding yourself a
vacation package. Have fun out there! <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Chris Linch</div> Because Thailand was never colonized, it has
managed to keep its unique culture and heritage intact. Bangkok offers visitors the opportunity to
experience fascinating glimpses of Thailand's gentle culture within the larger context of a bustling city.
This great metropolis has had amazing success in combining the ancient and modern world. It offers
visitors not only the cosmopolitan amenities they would expect from other big cities, but a treasure
trove of cultural attractions as well.Bangkok is home to approximately 10 million people, and serves as
the country's economic, spiritual, cultural and educational center. For tourists, Bangkok is a banquet
of attractions. The city houses 400 glittering Buddhist temples, magnificent palaces, classical dance
extravaganzas, numerous shopping centers and examples of traditional ways of life. This is especially
evident along the "Venice of the East"timeless canals and the Chao Phraya River that winds through
the city. It is worth taking a trip along its waters before exploring further into old Bangkok. The best
time to make a canal boat trip is around six o'clock in the morning in order to capture the authentic
atmosphere and the varied activity which begins early in the day: Monks receiving alms, children
hurrying to school, and boats delivering vegetables from farms to markets. For a truly authentic
experience, make sure to visit during one of the many festivals Thailand enjoys: 1)Bangkok
Songkran: The traditional Thai New Year is celebrated nationally with parades, boat races and music.
The Thais prepare through rituals to honor their ancestors, house cleaning and good works. 2)Chinese
New Year Festival offers demonstrations honoring Chinese culture, including dragon and lion dances,
ancient costumes, and Chinese music. 3) Loi Krathong: One of the most beautiful of the festivals, this
"festival of the lights" is observed citywide and nationally. In the evening, people gather at the
waterside to float krathong, lotus-shaped vessels beautifully decorated with flowers and lit candles, as
a thanksgiving and worship to the Goddess of Water. Imagine how lovely this must be! There are also
fun fairs, concerts, beauty contests and other entertainment. If you have time, take a Thai cooking
class; or visit the floating market on the River Kwai. Shop the legendary malls MBK or Siam Paragon,
or haggle with the merchants at an open air artisan market. You can enjoy traditional Thai Dancing, or
a kickboxing demonstration, or visit a royal palace. Make sure to indulge in a spa treatment for which
Thailand is famous. With so many delights waiting, a trip to Bangkok is sure to charm everyone.

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by John Bakers</div> The first step to getting to your dream
destination is to consider your means of transportation. If you do not own a private car that you can use
for your journey, this is where a one way car rental comes handy. There are good tips that you have to
consider in order to get in touch with the best car rental service there is. Read on this article for good
methods that you can take advantage of to get a good rate and rental discount in one package. Car
rental companies are widely accessible in almost every part of a city. Most of which come with good,
reputable names who have proven good service for a number of years. One way car rental service is
always high in their priority list. To gain access to a good one, you might want to log on to internet and
open a search engine in the web browser. Key in the name of the car rental company that rings a bell
to you. You may also check out print ads and other forms of advertisement for a car rental company
that offers good deals about one way car rental. This way, you can compare the best deal from one
company to another. The Reservation Process When you transact with car rental companies whether
online or via phone call, you have to give out the details of the date and time as to when you will be
needing the rental service. There are rental companies that are hosted on a website so you do not have
to deal with the fuss of going over to their office and book a rental yourself. All you have to do is
tender specifics like the location where the customers will be coming from for pick-up and the make
and model of the car of your choice. An equally important information is the drop-off point of the
transportation. This may be a sound factor for the charge or fees that will be extracted from you. To
finally get hold of a reservation, all these information become necessary, plus, your credit card
information. When all these are polished, you are all set for your awaited journey. Getting Good
Discounts The good thing about car rental companies is that loyal members are given the privilege of
great discounts and affordable rates. These companies inform their avid customers via a registered
email so that they will be notified with discount coupons and special rate offers. If you pass as a valid
member of the government workforce, say, a member of the military and/or an active member of big
offices and widely distinguished groups or associations, you may also be able to acquire of their
special offers. This is a very neat arrangement provided by most car rental companies. <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Alvin Heen</div> Budget Friendly Vacationing in Mexico is
right in front of you, just look! Mexico is one of the greatest places to travel if you are on a budget.
Package deals, low cost airfare, discount accommodations, dining out, travel within the country are just
a few of the things that you can save money on with the correct research. When you think of beautiful
beaches, rich culture, luxury cruises you have to think Mexico. And even with a tight budget you can
still enjoy all of these great luxuries. No matter what your situation is, Mexico is the place to be.
Traveling to Mexico or anywhere for that matter can be an adventure in itself. Flying is the most
common method used by travelers and you can find affordable flights with a bit of work. Locate a
travel agent near you to discuss package deals to Mexico that they may be offering. Doing your own
research on the internet is also an option but read the details carefully. Some package deals include not
only transportation but accommodations as well. An important part of your trip to take care in
planning is your accommodations. Vacationing in Mexico can suit any accommodation budget from
the lowest cost camping alternative to luxury cruises and resorts. Another alternative you may have is
to stay with friends or family who live in Mexico, even if for only part of your stay. However, if hotel
accommodations or a cruise is what you are looking for work with a travel agent or research the
internet carefully to find the right package for your needs and budget. Dining in Mexico can be costly
just like in other places. But you can save a great deal of money by choosing alternative eating habits
for most of your meals. The local residents would be more than willing to share with you the locations
of their local markets. Not only will you be able to save by shopping and eating locally, you will be
able to enjoy the rich traditions that Mexico?s residents enjoy every day. Ask around and get some
ideas for a few self prepared meals. Shopping for and preparing your own meals while vacationing in
Mexico can be cost effective as well as enriching to your family?s culture experience. The local food
markets in Mexico are filled with fresh fruits and vegetables. Please note you should be diligent about
carefully washing and peeling all produce after your purchase and practice safe handling techniques.
These are just a few of the things that you may be able to save money and keep yourself inside a
reasonable budget. Other packages may have travel to and from the airport as well as around the town
where you are staying. Be sure to check with hotel staff and local residents about transportation
offerings. The bus routes in Mexico are relatively inexpensive so check out the schedules and times
when you arrive. Please be cautious and use only prearranged taxis, that have been coordinated with
the airport or our resort. You may also choose to have an alternative to flying. Major bus companies
like Grey Hound have many trips scheduled throughout the country of Mexico. If you find that flying
is not an option, don't give up on your dream. With some careful planning any size budget can be
arranged for an enjoyable trip to beautiful Mexico. Do that and you?ll never look back years later
wishing you had just taken the time to figure out how you could do it and later have those Mexican
vacation memories. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

Kenya Wildlife Safari Adventure : Experience the African Wild

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Andrew Muigai</div> Kenya's spectacular wilderness and game
animals have for long been a magnet for travelers from all over the world. In Kenya, visitors seeking
adventures in the African wild get the chance to sample the country's incredibly diverse landscape,
magnificent natural land features, plus a wide range of ecosystems. The 27 national parks and 33
game reserves in Kenya host millions of wild animals, making the country a game watching paradise.
The great wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara, and the Lake Nakuru flamingos (the highest
concentration of flamingos in East and Central Africa) are just some of the attractions that make Kenya
the best wildlife safari destination in Africa and in the world. The Great Masai Mara Wildebeest
Migration, for instance, draws numerous visitors from around the globe annually. Taking place
between July and October, the Masai Mara migration sees around 2 million Wildebeest, 300,000
Thompson gazelle and 250,000 zebras moving to Masai Mara national Park in Kenya from the
neighboring Serengeti national Park in Tanzania. This great migration results from the constant search
for water and pastures following different rainfall patterns in the two game reserves. The end of May
marks the beginning of the dry season in Serengeti, during which the large mammals start their
northwards journey to the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara is a fascinating game-viewing destination all
year round, although most people like to time their Masai Mara Safari with the Great Wildebeest
Migration. Getting the timing right is, however, really tricky as it all depends on the rains which
schedules the migration. Located in southwestern Kenya, about 300 km from Nairobi, the 1510 square
kilometer national park is owned and managed by the Maasai people of Kenya. It takes about 5 hours
to get there by road and 45 minutes by air. There are scheduled flights from both Jomo Kenyatta
International Airport and Wilson Airport. In addition, you can fly to Masai Mara by charter flights
from Wilson airport. Several private tour operators provide safaris to the reserve and game drives
within. A popular and convenient wildlife safari destination for visitors who do not want to travel
much across the country is the Nairobi National park. The park is situated about 7km from Nairobi city
center, making it the only game reserve in the world located in a major city. Nairobi national park was
established in 1945 and was the first national park in Kenya. A great diversity of animal and bird
species are present in the Nairobi national park. All the big five except the elephant are found here,
alongside cheetahs, hyenas, crocodiles, hippos, antelopes, gazelles, warthogs, hyrax, wildebeests, and
monkeys. There are also over 400 resident and migratory bird species including African hawks, martial
eagles, ostriches, secretary bird, marabou storks, hornbill, and crowned cranes. Also situated within
the park are the Nairobi animal orphanage, the Nairobi safari walk, a spacious picnic site, and walking
trails near hippo pools. In the animal orphanage, young, deserted, or injured animals are treated and
taken care of, then released back to the wild when ready. In the park is also a rhino sanctuary, one of
the few places in Kenya to spot black rhinos in their natural habitat. You can visit the Nairobi national
park any time of the year and still get a perfect wildlife safari experience. The best months to visit
however are July and August when thousands of wildebeest, zebras and elands migrate into the park.
The animals move to the northern parts of the park in the dry season in order to get access to the water
available in the man-made dams. Elsewhere, about 300 km from Nairobi lies the Tsavo National Park
famous for the 'man-eaters of Tsavo', which has been documented on and produced as a movie. The
park is the largest national parks in Kenya and is divided into two: Tsavo East and Tsavo West. Tsavo
West borders the south Serengeti plains in Tanzania and is home to many animals as altitude levels are
conducive. The national parks are separated by the Mombasa-Nairobi highway. Major attractions of
the Tsavo include the Mzima springs which has an observation point underwater for viewing hippos
and crocodiles. Tsavo animal population consists lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, buffaloes,
cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, hippos, and crocodiles among many more. There are a host of other smaller
animals including dik dik, hyrax, and mongoose. You can travel to Tsavo both by road and by charter
flight. Some operational airstrips in Tsavo include Kilaguri, Maxtar, Kamboyo, and Tsavo Gate. Other
Kenya national parks popular for wildlife safaris are Amboseli, Aberdares, Lake Nakuru and Mount
Kenya national parks, and Samburu game reserve. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Chris Linch</div> So, you are going to the Philippines. You
might even be in the country already. Yet, you find yourself with nowhere to stay, and you are daunted
by the steep price tag of luxury hotel rooms or you are ticked off by dirt-cheap establishments that
offer very little in terms of comfort. Have no fear - there are always Cheap Manila Hotels where
travelers can stay at convenient and comfortable lodgings without paying an arm and a leg for their
rooms. There are ways through which one can avail of cheap hotel accommodations. It is in the
traveler's best interests to do the necessary steps in order to find the best possible deal. In the long run,
he or she will benefit from having a much more flexible financial plan and having a comfortable, yet
affordable place to stay. Research, research, research - one cannot stress this enough. If one is looking
for the best hotel that offers the services and amenities he or she requires while having affordable rates
that fit within one's budget, then the traveler should be willing to research on important factors such as
room rates, availability, amenities, and hotel services. Knowing what each hotel offers and how this
relates to the price tag is of immense importance. The research, of course, will depend largely upon
one's purpose of visit. Is one traveling to relax, unwind, and head off to a vacation in one of the
Philippines' exotic islands? Is one traveling to visit friends and family? Is one in the country for a no-
nonsense business trip? The purpose is important to identify the key services and primary locations
that one looks for in a hotel. Researching on Budget Manila Hotels also involves finding out about
peak periods and, in converse, off-peak periods during the year. Booking at off-peak situations can
drastically affect the value of hotel bookings. Off-peak periods offer additional discounts and way
cheaper rates than booking at congested travel times such as during the holidays. One can also look
for prime deals and added discounts online. The Internet is burgeoning with booking sites that can
offer discounts as well as the convenience of getting a hotel room in advance - all within a few clicks
of your mouse. You can also view hotels' sites and see what they offer in terms of amenities, pricing,
and services. When all else fails, one can just look for hotels' phone numbers and call up the hotels
themselves. Asking up-front about discounts and cheap rates is not something to be embarrassed about;
rather, it is a sign of being a shrewd and discerning traveler who won't take anything less than the best
back for his or her buck. Besides, hotels love it when tourists and travelers show enthusiasm for their
establishment. It lets them know that they are being considered, and that their promotions are getting
interest. When it comes to booking your Last Minute Manila Hotels, just remember one thing:
information is ammunition. It is always a good thing for travelers to be well-informed about the places
they are going to and the establishments they will end up staying at. Travelers, whether they are on
business or on vacation, need to turn a critical eye to what is being offered by the respective hotels, not
just in Manila. With the proper research and information, you'll find out where to book the best cheap
hotels in Manila. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the Author:</div>

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Robert M Freeman</div> Corfu is a great place to visit during
holidays, and offers a lot of attractions that you ought to see anywhere else. In Corfu, you should go to
Aqualand which is the largest of water parks in all of Europe and includes a large variety of slides. It
offers activities for adults as well as children. The Achillion Palace in Corfu as well is a great sight. It
was constructed somewhere around 1890 by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria. The palace is bounded
by beautiful gardens and has tremendous views of the environs. The Golf course of the club is at a
lovely location and is incredibly well kept. The trees, lakes, and streams all provide a fantastic view
beside the hills. A lot of people have described Corfu in different terminologies amongst which the
most well-known description is presented by Embrald Isle and Homer and they call Corfu as the "rich
and beautiful land". The island provides a huge variety of the most modern islands and beaches. The
wildlife is very diverse, and there are mountains that are tall and commanding. If you want to have a
glance of Italy from Corfu, climb up the Prantokator Mountain. In addition Corfu has outstanding
flora. Furthermore, you can see more than six hundred different classes of wild flowers in Corfu. The
birds in Corfu are also glamorous and very diverse in varieties. Corfu is a type of place where you can
have a wonderful time even if your budget is a bit tight. Throughout your holidays, you'll get a number
of surprises in different types, and if you love nature and its sights then you're in for a treat as Corfu is
naturally very rich. If you are interested in some sightseeing, you can see the churches, fortresses,
temples, and museums, and each one of it would give you an insight into a different architecture as
Corfu has been under the influence of several different nations and thus reflects architecture of diverse
nature as well. If you want to experience how life in the past might have been in Corfu Town, go to
Kambiello, which is the oldest part of the town and offers a flavour of the past life. Inspired from the
Rue de Rivoli in Paris, there is The Liston in Corfu Town which is based on a row of houses and is
worth seeing. There are also cafes and restaurants near it that offer great food and a leisure time. If
you are still interested in the past of the island, you can visit the Archaeological Museum of Corfu
where you would be able to see a limestone sculpture of the lion of Menekrate. This sculpture is more
than twenty five hundred years old and is one of its kinds. Whether you are a lover of architecture,
nature, nightlife, or sightseeing, you would be satisfied with your holiday in Corfu, and you would be
able to make the best from your holidays. Corfu has got some of the greatest resorts. Some of the best
ones are Arillas, Acharavi, Ipsos, Kalami, Kavos, Dassia, Nissaki, Moraitika, and many others. <div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Samuel Cook</div> New York City can easily be seen by bus or
by boat; but what if you want to see the city the way New Yorkers do: on foot? There are not a lot of
options for travelers and the existing tours completely neglect the famous nightlife of New York City,
something which should be seen and experienced by visitors. Uncle Sam's New York has stepped in
to fill this void and provide consistent, daily historical walking tours that New York city visitors can
count on. More importantly, Uncle Sam's New York is the only company that offers walking tours that
are interactive experiences for the visitors. Uncle Sam's New York historical walking tours take the
classic New York City neighborhoods and provide the real history that captures the essence of their
story. Instead of randomly walking its visitors around a neighborhood, Uncle Sam's New York tours
insist on providing a coherent narrative to explain the history of the neighborhood. Uncle Sam's New
York has selected some famous New Yorkers to serve as the representative story of each
neighborhood. The Edgar Allan Poe Greenwich Village tour takes visitors through the historic artistic
center of New York City, while the George M. Cohan Theater District tour visits Times Square and the
surrounding area, home to Broadway shows. The Alexander Hamilton Financial District tour takes
visitors to the oldest part of the borough of Manhattan. Uncle Sam's New York's original walking tour
is the Alexander Hamilton Financial District Tour including prominent landmarks like Battery Park,
Bowling Green Fraunces Tavern, Wall Street, and the site of the former World Trade Center twin
towers, to name just a few. This impressive walk uncovers New York City from its inception as a
Dutch Settlement to it's ascent to the financial capital of the world. The story is told from the
perspective of Alexander Hamilton, bringing the story alive through the eyes of a poor young
immigrant who rose to become the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. This story captures the
heart of the immigrant history that plays such a defining role in the history of New York City. The
Edgar Allan Poe Greenwich Village Tour leads visitors through the neighborhood where American
literature, movies, modern music, and painting first came to life. This jaunt through the meandering
Greenwich Village streets leads you from the Washington Square Arch to the folk music clubs on
Bleecker Street. The tour is named after the man who is considered the father of American poetry, and
will retrace the beginnings of the neighborhood that served as the birthplace of important historical art
movements in the United States, from American Theater to folk rock and stand up comedy. Tour
goers give their regards to Broadway on the George M. Cohan Theater District Tour that takes visitors
on a voyage into the heart of the most famous theater district in the world. As told from point of view
of the original Yankee Doodle Dandy, you'll see iconic theaters including the New Amsterdam, the
Imperial, and the Palace. Sing and dance along with your favorite artists as you follow them through
Shubert Alley and learn about the fascinating history of most incredible theatrical and musical
performances in and around Times Square. For the New York City visitor, Uncle Sam's New York
Historical walking tours provide an innovative glimpse of the real New York. Rather than providing
dry information, these wonderful tours provide guests with a fascinating, themed narrative to
understand and capture the essence of these historic New York neighborhoods. Uncle Sam's New
York also gives its visitors a way to remember their special experiences in these New York City
landmarks by providing a photographer on every tour to provide visitors a way to remember their
experiences when they leave New York City. By going to Uncle Sam's New York website
(www.unclesamsnewyork(dot) com) after the tour, visitors can view their photos of the walking tours
at the top New York City landmarks and take them home with them. <div class='resource'><div

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Dan Fischer</div> Travelling to Spain for a holiday is a sound
idea and many people in the UK choose on a regular basis. Another advantage of having a holiday in
Spain is quick flying times because of the short distances involved and there are a lot of flight
companies have routes between Spain and Britain. There are many reasons as to why letting a holiday
villa in Spain is a goodidea. If there are a few of you travelling, by renting a large villa you can be
together rather than being on various floors of a hotel or apartment compound. There are a few villas
can accommodate over twenty individuals therefore it is possible to all be together if you want. Many
villas come with pools so you can go swimming anytime you wish and also you know it will not be
busy with teenagers with blow up toys. The pool is never closed unless you don't want it to be. Villas
are situated in many different areas, you can rent one in a remote accommodation if you want to escape
from everything, at the beach or up in the hills. To select the correct property it is importantthat you
hunt around as much as possible. Villas differ in quality, interior decoration, position and amenities
and of course cost. Look on the different web sites providing villas as well as calling a reliable travel
professional to find what they can provide you with. Remember that some villas can be quite far from
things and hiring a car can be essential. Make sure you pick who is going to drive if anyone and selecta
accommodation closer to some amenities if nobody wants to drive. The more individuals the larger the
automobile needed and the greater the room you will need for the baggage. If there is many of you it
would be advisable to lease more than one vehicle. It is your vacation and your vacation time is
important so don't gamble with it look around to confirm the villa you reserve is the right one for you
and you friends or family. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;' class='about'>About the

<div style='italic;' class='byline'>by Matt Rowlands</div> Modern time has led people to constantly
travel whether for Business, Trip, or simply a Personal Visit and this gave rise to the demand in
comfort in travel. We want to have our clothes, shoes, and some personal belongings along with us but
a new dilemma has come along with it; Travel means you have to go light for some air travel related
concerns and of course, for the simple reason that you don't want to carry all these stuff with you and
cause the very thing you avoided; discomfort. Good news is that, as though these cries have been
heard, men have found yet another simple but brilliant way in conquering these problems and this
paved way to the birth of the Luggage. Not just your ordinary luggage, modern designs now
emphasizes more on portability, ease of use, style, and size. So before purchasing Luggage, it is wise
to review and compare features to suit your travelling needs. First and often the most considered
factor by every traveler is the Weight of the luggage. Look for a bag that takes advantage of the new,
hi-tech materials which are strong but lightweight. Material is also a priority because it will give the
traveler the idea of how strong their bag is and will it able to hold on for a long time. Buy a bag made
of almost any type of material, but nylon is optimal for weight, strength, durability and style. Look for
material with a tight, dense weave, and seams with solid stitching. Carrying a suitcase is a hard labor
and so Wheels are very important for a traveler because it cancels most weight and drag in traveling.
Most bags today have wheels. Look for wheels that are at least 2.5 inches (6cm) in diameter for
smoother rolling along surfaces from moving sidewalks to cobblestone to pavement. If a luggage has
wheels, it should have a handle for pulling it comfortably. When you visit a store, it is advisable you
perform a series of test drives to make sure you can pull it comfortably without it hitting your heels as
you walk. The handle should lock into place both in the extended position for ease of use, and in the
retracted position to prevent damage to the handle if the bag is checked. Also, don't go for metal
zippers, the new synthetic zippers are just as strong and lighter in weight and make sure the zipper
pulls can be secured with a lock, so that bags contents stay secured. There are countless Features that
come along with the purchase of the luggage; extra zippered pockets, a key ring holder, organizer
panels and compression straps. Remember to look for additional features that will make the bag not
only more functional, but easier and more convenient to use. <div class='resource'><div style='italic;'

Knowing your desired destination will aid you in narrowing down your options. You need to start
looking for ships that provide a comfortable itinerary along with a price you can pay. Remember that
ships charge an extra fee for the "honeymoon package". Each cruise line has its way of presenting you
this package. You will encounter special details such as invitation to romantic dances and inners,
special souvenirs and gifts, after-hours room service, congratulations from the Captain, etc. Another
thing to look for on a honeymoon cruise, are the things to do inside the ship. Cruises are like big
moving hotels, and most of them offer a lot of ways to have fun inside the ship, from playing table
tennis at the deck to dancing all night at a club. If your budget is tight, know that there are many ways
to reduce your expenses on a cruise, and also different ways to find cheap honeymoon cruise packages.
