Dubai is definitely an oasis in the middle of the desert – a giant metropolitan oasis. When I explain what Dubai is like to my friends and family I tell them it’s like a shiny, new Las Vegas set in the Middle East. There’s no gambling and less influence of alcohol, but the grandeur of the city will still amaze you. [Read more…]
I absolutely loved London and felt right at home while “minding the gap” on the tube, sipping afternoon tea, and exploring by foot. The locals are welcoming, and even if you’ve got your tourist googles on and are in their way, they’ll probably shout a friendly “Cheers!” over their shoulder as they pass you. In addition to hearing Big Ben ring, hopping in a phone booth, and setting foot on one of the red double decker buses, there is so much more to do in London. See below for my favorite experiences to attain a more in depth view of this great city.
If you’re planning on vacationing in India, researching the visa options can be quite frustrating. There are so many websites that offer visa service, but most will charge unnecessary fees. How do you know what type of visa to get? How do you interpret the strange wording? If you are going to India for tourism purposes and expect to be there for less than 30 days you might be able to qualify for an E-Tourist Visa (eTV).
Christmas is truly one of the most wonderful times of the year. It’s a season of giving, romance, joy, love, and wonder. The lights, decorations, and snow give us the sense that the Christmas spirit is constantly whirring around us.
India is the most chaotic place I have ever visited. My mouth was wide open in shock for the first few hours I was in the country because everything was just so different and amazing. I witnessed 6 lanes of traffic in a 4 lane road, water buffalo roaming the streets, pigs rummaging through the trash, and locals herding goats down the road.
Las Vegas is full of glitz, glamor, high rollers, and sweaty tourists. The whole city is a giant gambling empire, but what if you’re not a big gambler? Or if lady luck has left you high and dry with an empty wallet?
Don’t fear, there are plenty of things to do in Sin City for free. You can stay busy for a week and not gamble at all.
Many people are excited to travel all around the world and they make traveling their passion. Nothing can stop them from traveling to their desired destinations except one thing and that is the budget. No matter how big traveling enthusiast you are, if you don’t have enough money, all your dreams to visit and see the world are shattered to pieces. Almost all persons who go traveling – except some financial giants – consider the budget initially before finally deciding which place they should choose and which not. [Read more…]
Each cruise line has something for everyone, but there are many reasons to sail with Royal Caribbean. My last cruise was a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise that visited Belize, Honduras and Mexico, and it was truly one of my most enjoyable vacations ever. The trip was completely worry and stress free, and I found it easy to relax and enjoy every moment. As I’m sure you’ve seen on my About Me page, I’ve been to quite a few places, and sadly it’s getting a little more difficult with every trip to find brand new experiences. On this one trip I had multiple new and amazing experiences, and that’s really saying something for Royal Caribbean. Below are 10 reasons I would sail with them for my next cruise.
Around the year 0, Rome was no longer considered a city. It was considered the whole civilized world and everyone else was a barbarian. They no longer believe this, thank goodness, but there are so many well preserved structures from that time. Each one tells an amazing story about the past, and it’s fun to discover them. There’s enough to see and do in Rome for a tourist to keep busy for at least a week, but if you’re like me and only have a limited amount of vacation days, this 4 day itinerary hits the highlights. It’s packed full and has a strenuous pace, so you might need a vacation from your vacation if you follow it entirely, or you can shave off a few sights to have a more relaxing trip.
Alaska is an amazing place to visit and offers so many wonderful and adventurous experiences. It’s a Bucket List vacation spot for many people, and for good reason too. Natural beauty is abundant and adventure lies around every corner. However, goods and services tend to be more expensive than in the continental United States because much of these items must be delivered via ship or plane. Luckily, there are so many free activities to partake in that a visit to the 49th state doesn’t have to break the bank.
