I Found the Perfect Place to Stay for a Couple of Days

Featured

Driving through Alabama was really nice. I had never been there before, but I sure liked the area as I traveled through in my car. After getting a little bit road bleary on my drive through, I decided to figure out where I could sleep for the night. I did not know anything about the hotels and motels in Cullman where I was traveling through, but I pulled over to the side of the road and just did a quick search on my cell phone.

The place I ended up staying for the night was a nice bed and breakfast. I had always heard of them, but never stayed in one. I always assumed that I would do that one day when I was married and had children. I figured it would be nice for a honeymoon or a family vacation. But I was sure glad that I found the place I was staying in. Continue reading

Taking a Tour of the Stars’ Homes

Featured

When my best friend asked me if I wanted to go with her to Beverly Hills, it took me all of three seconds to say yes. It only took that long because I was not expecting that question! We are both enthralled with the way the other half lives, particularly the stars that we see on TV and hear on the radio just about every day. Though she was going there on business, I knew that we were going to fit in a Beverly Hills tour before we left. I planned on spending the day at the hotel spa while she did her business, but then the next two days were ours to do whatever we wanted. Continue reading

A Relaxing Time in Ottawa

Featured

I hate traveling on public transportation. It’s like being crammed in to a can like a sardine. People always try to bother you on the train. One guy tried to sell me some cheap headphones once while I was riding. I don’t know where he got the headphones, or if they had been stolen, but I wasn’t about to buy any. A few months ago, I took a trip to Ottawa by car and my car broke down once I got into town. Rather than taking public transportation, I rented a limousine in Ottawa that would take me wherever I wanted to go.

My family asked me why I didn’t just rent a regular car instead of a limousine. A car would have been the more economical choice, but it wouldn’t have felt as good. I was taking the trip as a personal vacation, so I wanted to feel as relaxed as possible. The limo really made me fell as if I was getting away from everything, and made me forget all about my car that had broken down. Continue reading

Started to Think About Our Holiday Plans

Featured

I am not sure how practical an idea this is, but Leigh and I have been thinking about taking about three weeks this year and going on an extended holiday. Of course we have been going on vacation for years and usually it is some place relatively close. Last year we went to Canada, did a week in the Pacific Northwest part of Canada, took a scenic rail trip. This year we are thinking about something epic. This friend of mine showed me some pictures from a place called Queenstone Lodge, this it here http://queenstownholidayhouse.com/. Continue reading

Getting More Info on Car Hires at Aberdeen Airport

Featured

I am flying out in a few days, so I looked to find more info about hiring a specific type of car from the Aberdeen Airport. I like to have all my ducks in a row when I have to travel for business. I really do not like it in the first place, so if I have to do it, I want it to go smoothly. One thing that really ruins the trip is having difficulty hiring the type of car I need at the destination.

I work for a fossil fuel exploration company, and I need a sturdy SUV for some trips. On other trips I need a luxury sedan due to having to take a VIP with me wherever I go. When I schedule with a car hire agency, I do not want any substitutions when I arrive to pick up my car. On one occasion I was offered an upgrade to a very nice sedan, but I needed an SUV. That was no help thus making me very aggravated. Continue reading

Started Traveling a Lot More Lately

It is not as though I am a global traveler now, but I have definitely become a lot more of a vagabond since I started my new job. I have a territory and it covers all of the New England area. I have to get a passport as they are going to send me across the border on occasion. I am not sure that you need it if you just go across the border every now and then, but I am going to be crossing back and forth, so it is going to be a lot better if I make that go away. It is going to be easy enough. You just have to figure out where you go to get the passport. Continue reading

Going to Yellowstone National Park

I homeschool my children, and part of the fun of that is actually exploring the world instead of sitting in a classroom just reading about it. For one class last year, we all decided that we would go to Yellowstone National Park. The kids had just learned about Old Faithful and had seen pictures, and they were anxious to see it in person. I decided to look up Cody Wyoming hotels online to see if I would be able to find a good deal on a room for the four of us, and i found just that.

There is a hotel there called Moose Creek Lodge and Suites, and they had a room that has three queen size beds in it. I knew that the girls would have shared a bed, but this was even better. Continue reading

Looking into a Safari Trip This Summer

Of course I actually think it would be Winter in the Southern Hemisphere from what they say, but I believe the weather is usually pretty warm down in South Africa all year around. I do not know what the temperature variation is down there, but it seems like the hot season would be what you would want to avoid. I was checking out the price of an accommodation in Hoedspruit, which seems to be one of the better places to stay from what research I have done into the topic. The big thing we are thinking about is the actual getting there. It is not clear how you would do it, but it would obviously take a long time to fly all the way over there and I am sure that it would be quite expensive no matter what. Continue reading

Pricing out a Big Holiday Trip

Of course like every other person I have a budget for every thing that I do, although I usually sort of figure stuff out on the fly. In this case I am going to have to sit down and do the math, because it is going to be a pretty fair chore to arrange this trip and it is not as though I want to make a mess of it. I have been looking at the cost of holiday houses in NZ and the cost of the air fare from here to there. Of course both of those things are very important and you have to look at the time involved as well. First you have to get to Los Angeles, which is not a short trip from here in North Carolina.

Escaping from the Stress of Work

Being able to get away from it all is what I look forward to every year. With the constant pressure to perform well at work riding on my shoulders it has become more important with each passing year that I find some kind of outlet that will give me a few days of peace and quiet. That’s why I use Bookabach when I need to escape and escape is exactly what I do. As an American, I like to do something different than what most of my fellow Americans do. See, for most of us we tend to stay within the realm of the United States. Not me, sir. Not me.

I like to get as far away as possible as I can from the United States. Don’t get me wrong; I love it here! I wouldn’t trade my home for any other country in the world but there is no doubt that living here can be a stressful experience thanks to the capitalist drive of the free market demanding more from us financially.

Thinking About Whether or Not I Can Afford a Trip to New Zealand

Thinking about whether or not I can afford a trip to New Zealand right now. It is not a small thing and it would involve a lot of planning for me to be able to pull it off. As an example if i wanted to go down to Orlando and see that mouse kingdom, I could go hop on a plane and be down there in about three hours I suppose. In this case I can figure out what the cost would be for air fare and for Greenstone lodge Queenstown accommodation in New Zealand, but the time is a big deal too. I do not have an unlimited amount of time I could devote to this trip and it really does not seem as though you want to do something like this in a big rush. It is likely to be a once in a lifetime type of adventure, so why go scurrying through it as though your butt was on fire.

I have not sat down to look at the airline schedules yet, but my guess is that it takes a long time to get there from here. I do a search for LAX to New Zealand and that gives me a price range, it is going to be North of a thousand dollars for a round trip, upwards to fourteen hundred I suppose. My guess is that you do not want to get the coach seats on that flight either. A web page I found lists the travel time for New Zealand as just under 14 hours, flying from LA. I would have to get across the country to get to LAX and then when I got to New Zealand (I would guess it would be Wellington or Auckland), then I would have to get to the final destination.

Choosing to Travel by Greyhound Bus Across Country

I go every year across the country to visit relatives. On my vacation I take the bus to see the countryside. I could fly out, but I like going by bus. I also save a lot by booking in advance and using promo codes for Greyhound Bus Lines that I find online. I go from one coast to the other one. Sure, it takes a couple of days of traveling, but I like it. I actually book the longest routes I can take while still saving money. A lot of times you can save more by being routed indirectly. I don’t mind that. I am looking to do more sightseeing.

I schedule stops where I can rent a cheap place to stay. I will explore a town or city I have never seen. Sometimes it takes me a few days to get to my relatives. I usually stay for a few days and head back toward home. The return leg is often longer than my trip out. I plan it that way. Continue reading

Going to Take the Winter off

It was merely happenstance. I needed a girlfriend or I wanted a girlfriend. The old one dumped, although the blame was entirely my own. At least she says that I was looking at other girls, which I probably was being that I am a man. That caused her to fly into a rage. Apparently one of her friends was quite happy to see this it seemed. A few days later she ran into me, at the place where you would run into me easily, the school library. She asked me what I thought about holidays in spain, which is something I had not really thought too much about. Continue reading

Started Planning Our Next Vacation

Of course we have a general idea of what we are going to do, but specific agreement is a long way off at this point. It appears that we might go to Paros in the Cyclades Islands, because that is a good compromise. Ann Marie will do her yoga in greece and I will get to do some scuba diving. Of course the two of us will have to decide whether or not there will be more to it. If we go to Greece and the Greek Isles it will probably be for around three weeks or maybe even a month. We have no one holding us back and we have saved up enough money for traveling. It is just a matter of deciding how to go about it. Of course we are thinking about all of the variables and how it is going to be done.

It is going to cost us a fair amount of money, that much is obvious. However it is not going to be anything luxurious. We figure that it is nice and warm there, but we should be able to make do by renting a little cottage and maybe a couple of Vespas, those little motor scooters that you see. We will not be renting a villa or anything like that, although we think that if we look around we might be able to do pretty well for ourselves. It is not going to be terribly easy for us to strike the perfect balance, but we figure that we can just figure it out as carefully as we are able. We had thought about finding a couple of other couples to split expenses with us and maybe rent one of those villas. It is pretty surprising what you can get if you have enough people to divide the cost.

Trusting Corporate Cab Services in Mumbai

One of the things I like a lot about international business travel is not having to drive myself around. When I travel in the states I have to do it myself. My employer prefers to have its employees be taken from place to place while visiting in other countries rather than have them drive themselves. I would say one of my favorite providers of this service is a company that provides corporate cab services in mumbai. They are easy to deal with, and they get me to where I am going and back again without issues.

It is easy to get lost in a new city even if you have been there lots of times. These modern cities are perpetually under construction. Roads change as well as the landmarks you get used to. If you are in the city most every day year round, it is easy to adjust to the changes. Flying into Mumbai on business a couple of times a year is not enough to keep track of all of the new things. Continue reading

Taking Advantage of Spain Holidays Brought Us Back to Our Roots

You could live in what other people around the world consider to be a paradise, but you will sooner or later want to take a holiday to some other part of the world. I think it is just the nature of us as people. We want to see new things. We want to experience new things. This is why my wife and I were talking about spain holidays a few months ago. We do not have much of a winter here where we are at, and we have the beaches and the water. However, we wanted to go and see the land of our parents and grandparents who came here from Spain.

We had a tremendous time on our holiday visit to Spain. We got to experience a new culture in another part of the world. Continue reading

Brisbane is Absolutely Stunning Year Round

I was looking at the different things that there are to do in Brisbane while we were going to be visiting there next year. It was going to be a lot of fun for us to go to and I could not wait to see all of the tropical gardens that were in country. I knew that the gastehuis in pretoria was going to be amazing to see and I could not wait until I was going to be able to go there and spend a lot of time with the different people in the area as I heard that they are very warm and caring.

Using a Car Service for Transportation and Sightseeing

Detailed Sunshine Coast mapAfter a quick holiday in Australia last year, I was ready to return. I booked my flight and was able to score an amazing price. My next step in finalizing this trip would be to book airport transportation. I went to http://www.sunshinecoastluxurytransfers.com.au to book a luxury vehicle. Based on my experience during my last trip, this was a great service to utilize. Someone actually came inside the airport to greet me and helped me pick up my luggage. I’m really glad that I didn’t have to try and carry it all by myself.

As I think back to my last trip, I remember being impressed by the vehicle that picked me up. To call it a luxury vehicle is an understatement. Their service made me feel like a celebrity. I had never been treated so well. That’s one of the reasons that I decided to book with them once again.

Great Prices on Limos Near Toronto

Limousine Service - Limousine services for all occasions | Toronto ...There are a couple potential investors coming into town for a presentation that I am going to be giving about my company. I am really trying to convince these people that they should invest in my company, and I think that one of the best ways to try to do that, would be to take them for a night out on the town. In order to really make the night special, I think that I need to look into toronto limo rentals. I do not want to appear cheap, and renting a limo, is definitely a way to show respect to investors.

It would mean so much for my company if these investors were to invest significant amounts of money in the company. It would mean that the expansion of the company, which I have been planning for quite awhile, would be able to happen a lot sooner than would be possible otherwise.

Romantic Tours for St. Thomas Island

I am finally going to get to go on a dream vacation with my wife. Unfortunately, it is not really for any special occasion, due to conflicts with our work schedules. We have been trying to plan a vacation during our wedding anniversary for years, but it has never worked out right. It is unfortunate, but we just decided to go on a vacation whenever we could make it work, instead of waiting to go on one for our anniversary. Anyway, right now, I need to look into st thomas tours because we have decided to go to St.

Making Most of the Cruise

My husband has been trying to get me to go on a cruise for years. I told him that I was afraid of getting sea sick. Every single time that I go on a boat I get sick, why would I want to spend my vacation feeling that way? I was afraid that there were going to be a lot of days where I did not want to do anything but I got something to put behind my ears from my doctor so it would not be so bad. I knew we had to book a st thomas taxi as that was one of the ports where we were going to be stopping to dock. There are a lot of things that we want to do on the island and because we have to be back on to the boat within a certain amount of time, we knew that we were going to have to get a taxi to take us to the first place that we want to go since it is so far away from the port.

I like to plan things in advance and I really think that it is really important when taking a vacation that I plan out what I am going to be doing. I like to rest and relax but when I am on the cruise boat that is when I will rest and relax. The best thing to do is to actually plan the things that you do when you land in a port. There are so many islands that we are going to be able to go and see, I am so happy that I will be able to see a lot of things like fire dancers and gorgeous beaches, I want to be sure that I see it all.
