Travel Guides – How to get a fun and safe trip Apr 07

Travel Guides - No one wants to travel alone, but when you do dedicate the time to travel on your own you might find that you can be left wondering what to do. When you travel with someone else you can talk to them and go over things together, but when you are alone it is a completely different traveling experience. If you do happen to have to travel alone then take note from the following tips so that you have a fun and safe trip.

Know where you are going and be sure to keep an eye out. Most of the people that are robbed in countries are foreigners, and people know this so they exploit the fact that you are unfamiliar with where you are at. Keep an eye out for any suspicious activity and be aware of your surroundings wherever you go. When you know the atmosphere that is going on around you it makes it easier to detect danger and can prevent it.

Travel during the day if you can, this makes your traveling safer. When you travel at night you leave yourself more vulnerable which can result in bad news. Although it may be cheaper to travel at odd times like at night you want to consider traveling during the day to avoid anything from going wrong.

If someone comes up to you and starts asking questions about where you are staying then you are going to want to tell them some white lies. It is fine to lie to a stranger and tell them you are traveling with a friend, if they are too nosey then it probably is not for the best of reasons, so avoid them and try to shun them off.

Hotels can meet accommodations so that your belongings can go to a safe. So plan ahead and if you are going away on a business trip then it might be wise to keep any valued items hidden away in a safe. It is also a good idea to keep all of your personal information with your name on it like your passport and identification cards on you at all times.

Call your loved ones so that they know you are safe. This way if anything were to happen to you they can pinpoint a timeframe for people to go by if you wind up missing. Although we never like to think of such dark things there are scary things that happen in this world so make sure you take every precaution that you can to play it safe.

If you see someone following you or notice the same person bugging you over and over then tell your hotel or the local authorities. They should be willing to help you with the situation and can help you catch a criminal. Make sure you do not confuse politeness with something else and remember that customs are different in every country that you visit.

Your instincts are going to tell you whether you are right or wrong. So make sure that you listen to your gut and if something is wrong do what you feel is right in that situation.

The more you travel alone the more you understand what you should do and look out for. The advice from this article gave you a lot of good ideas but remember to talk to others about their traveling experiences alone as well. Hopefully you can have easy travels but it is good to have these ideas in your head so that you can be safe.

Travel Guides – what you should do as you begin travelling Apr 05

travel guidesTravel Guides - When you begin traveling you may be left with many questions about what you should do before and during your travels. But this does not have to happen any more, because you have come across this article. The tips from this article can help you figure out what you should do as you begin your adventures. Read on and start taking notes so you can travel with ease from here on out.

If you are traveling because of work and have to bring work related documents or sensitive information with you then check to see if the hotel you are staying at has a safe. You do not want your important documents to go missing or become damaged. Call your hotel before you arrive and make the necessary accommodations so that they can make arrangements for you.

When you bring things like your laptop or cell phone you want to prevent thieves from being able to access your personal information. So in order to secure your privacy make sure that you password protect all of your digital devices. You also want to make sure that you take every precaution to prevent any items from being lost or stolen. Get a lock for your backpack to deter thieves from making an attempt to steal your belongings and make sure you keep your wallet and cell phone in your front pockets.

Taking pictures can be a wonderful thing to help you remember your experience. So make sure that you do not hurt your ability to remember the great time you had on your trip by securing your digital camera. A lot of people just put their digital camera in a pocket of a backpack which can result in it being stolen or damaged easier. Keep your digital camera on you at all times, you can wear it around your neck or on your wrist.

Ensure that you are not being wrongfully charged on your travels. A good way to make sure that your finances are in check is to regularly check your bank statements to make sure that everything is in check. As long as you have an internet connection you can check your bank statements to see that everything is fine. If not then the sooner you make a call to ask about any discrepancies the sooner any problems can be resolved.

Do you really need to bring your laptop with you on your travels? You should be enjoying your experience on your adventure rather than spend your time surfing the web on your laptop. If you have to bring your laptop for work related purposes then that is fine, but avoid bringing your laptop if it is unnecessary.

If you choose to not bring your laptop with you but do choose to check your bank statements then make sure you always log out. The same can be said for other things such as emails or social networks, you want to log out. Public computers are available to a lot of predators that scope people out so do not leave yourself logged in for too long because people can tap into your sensitive information.

A lot of thieves are on social media networks. There have been many reports of people breaking into homes of those reporting to be taking a trip on social networks. So do not let the whole world know what you are doing, there are those that might take advantage.

Don’t you feel a bit enlightened about traveling now? You should have a clearer head about what you are going to do to prepare for your travels and what you are going to do while you are out and about. Have fun with your traveling and remember to have fun and be safe more than anything.

Skiing in Andorra Oct 28

When it comes to British people heading off on holiday at the moment, the common denominator is usually money. There’s not a lot to go around at the moment, so it should not be surprising to discover that a lot of people from this country make their best efforts to find the cheapest places to go skiing.

At the moment that place appears to be Andorra, just between France and Spain in the Pyrenees. It should come as no surprise that prices are low, given its close proximity to Spain, but surprisingly, the skiing there is fantastic. There are lots of snow cannons in case of poor snow, but they are rarely needed with a good record over the winter months. You can find fantastic Ski deals in Andorra throughout the season, and you will also find that prices for literally everything out there is cheap, meaning it can be quite an affordable holiday.
Ski hotels in Andorra are normally fantastic too, and you will be amazed at how affordable they are against how nice they can be. The final thing to consider of course is the snow fall out there. It does tend to be very good there, and if you need any reassurance that you can expect good levels of snow, then you ought to have a look at the snowfall reports from previous years at Andorra.

Costa Rica Art Vacations Aug 23

Costa Rica has quietly been growing in the art world, but in recent years there has been even more of a developing art community.  While this island is located in an area that is heavily influenced by Pre-Columbia art, artists that are indigenous and those that have elected to move to Costa Rica are producing new and exciting works of art.  For them it is a world of art where they are breaking new ground.

There are more than enough museums in the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose.  But there are no real “art” museums yet.  One way of showing what their artist’s have is in the artists themselves displaying there art in their own environments, their homes.  There is a tour that takes you to 5 or 6 artist’s homes in a day’s tour, and you get a chance to really experience the their work.  You get to actually talk to the artist and find out their process for their art.  If you are a creative person this can be a real inspiration.

Another tour is given by a fellow Art Journalist, Jan Yatsko.  I have always kept a journal but when I discovered art journaling my creativity bumped up a notch.  One type of art journal is a travel journal.  Travel journals are also much like scrapbooks but you use the bits and pieces of your trip on you pages and write around them.  Photos are used a great deal in travel journaling, of course.

Jan’s tours are quite different.  She takes you into the jungle and shows you the beauty of Costa Rica and you make your own art.  The flora and fauna of Costa Rica are amazing and slapping paint around in bright colors is great fun.  Mind you, this is not for everyone, but for those with an artistic nature this might be right up your alley.  Jan teaches you portability in your art journaling kit and she has 8 years of experience in biking in and around Costa Rica.  She takes you to beautiful locations to show you amazing things to draw and paint.

If you are not into actually “doing” art yourself, but are and art lover, there are offerings in the way of museums in San Jose.  The Costa Rican Art Museum in San Jose is actually housed in the building that used to be the city’s airport.  It must make for a very interesting museum.  There is also the Museo De Oro Pre-Colombino, which translated means Museum of Pre-Columbian Gold.  This has a display of gold sculpted and rendered into beautiful pieces and presented in a fascinating show.

If it interests you there is a coin museum in the INS building, but that doesn’t really float my boat. There is a Contemporary Art Museum showing local artist’s work as well as a Children’s museum that is quite large and will take up a lot of kid time if you need it.  There is also an insect museum, a snake exhibit, and finally a crime museum.

There is also wonderful indigenous art.  If you go to www.galerianamu.com/map/ you will find a map of all of the tribes indigenous to Costa Rica.  This map will show you the tribes local to the area of Costa Rica you will be visiting.  I encourage you to look at their art and get your own piece of original Costa Rican Tribal art to take back home with you.

If you are looking to have a truly unique experience, stay for at least a day at the Finca Rosa Blanca.  The owners, Glenn and Teri Jampol have created an artful environment.  The architecture and décor is whimsical and the service is remarkable.  Glenn is an artist himself and might discuss art with you.  Each of the rooms is original and different from the others and comes with Jacuzzis and balconies.

It is said that no window is square in the hotel and art treasures from around the world are to be found everywhere.  The food provided is a 4-course dinner and it runs about $37 per person.  While this is vastly more expensive than any other dinner venue it seems to be worth it in this environment.  Throw caution to the wind and treat yourself to a dinner or two at Finca Rosa Blanca Inn.

Water Sports in Hawaii Aug 16

Ah, Hawaii the perfect vacation spots for a magical getaway in a tropical paradise.  There are few vacation destinations that offer as many attractions as Hawaii.  The island of Oahu boasts huge cities with lots of shopping as well some cultural activities nestled amongst the North Shore surfing villages.  The island also is home to the memorial at Pearl Harbor, which is on the top of the list of must see for Oahu

There are ample opportunities for playing golf as well.  All of the islands have golf courses.  They range from world championship golf courses to quiet laid back courses that have little or no greens fees.

But really Hawaii is all about the water sports.  The state is an island surrounded by the Pacific Ocean that is home to some of the world’s best and largest waves.  In fact surfing was invented here in the islands.  Oahu and Maui are most well known for surfing, particularly the North Shore of both islands, but you can really expect to see some pretty great waves just about anywhere in Hawaii.  If you are a beginner, you should stick to the beginner friendly waves like Waikiki Beach on Oahu and Lahaina in Maui. The big waves on the North Shore of the islands should be left to the experts. more…

The Roads Less Traveled in Seattle Jul 22

If you are in the process of making plans to visit Seattle Washington, I’m sure you’ve checked out all kinds of information about what there is to do and see in the area. There are many things that make all of the must do lists because they offer appeal to the greater population rather than things that would appeal to specific segments of population.

I consider myself young, hip, and fun loving. While there are many things on the mass lists that I find appealing, I really like going off the beaten path just a little bit and finding things to do and places to see that aren’t going to be overcrowded, overpopulated, and simply overdone. I like to find something that not every other tourist in the city is going to be standing in line in front of me to do. Here are a few of the nifty tours and other things I have found to do in Seattle.

The first one on my list is the Private Eye on Seattle Murder and Mystery Tour. There are three tours offered, the Queen Anne Murder and Mystery Tour, the Capital Hill Tour (which each cost $25 per person and lasts about two and a half hours), and Haunted Happenings, which is also known as the Seattle Ghost Tour (this tour lasts about 3 hours and is also $25 per person). These are great for any fan of true crime or simply dusty old detective novels. They are not however, tours I would recommend for the squeamish or faint of heart. I recommend any one of these tours or all of them if possible. They are a great way to spend your time while in Seattle. more…
