Not only professional magazines that you have to looking for as an information source, some other kind of magazine are also interesting, actually more interesting in my point of view, they are magazines for hobbies and fun such as “Disney’s Adventures” and “YM,” “Family Handyman,” Golf Digest,” “AARP,” and “Money.” These are all national magazines, cream of the crop and are harder to break into than smaller markets.
Travel around is also a god opportunity to get new ideas, no matter it is a short plane trip or long vacation like you have to take a flight across the country.

Good non-fiction writers has habit to always collect publication whenever they have a chance and they can even develop the idea and write story when they are at the location of travel and this is a very good example of what good writers should have.

As the Christmas holidays come to an end and the remnants of family visits are swept under the rug, the children tire of their new toys in an ever hurrying pace and work begins anew, it seems as though the hectic pace of the holidays is put behind us yet again.
If only that were so.
For a teenager, or a family that houses one, the end of Christmas can only mean one thing: next stop summer vacation. As the New Year dawns, all eyes turn to those three long months where parents toil away at work while their teens run amok, gaining valuable life experiences in the arts of ‘hanging out’ and learning to disobey. Well, perhaps summer isn’t all bad, but it can certainly take its toll on a parent worried about the advancement of their child outside of the boundaries of school.
In the past, parents have worked hard towards finding places that their kids can go during the summer where they can learn, experience, and stay out of mom and dad’s hair. From summer camp, sports clubs, camping trips and a week with Grandma, parents have stretched themselves fairly thin for ideas about what to do with a boisterous teen that both takes up months worth of time and provides teens with something they can actually take away from the experience. However, more often than not, teens end up apathetic (or start out that way), and turn the experience from something they could learn from to something they disdain.
Perhaps this year, parents should try a new system. It is time to stop trying to impose learning experiences on your teens and start giving them something they won’t recognize as a life lesson. I mean, of course, travel.
Since as far back as I can remember, the idea of backpacking Europe has been a rite of passage for affluent families in North America. In the past, however, a lack of safety, cheap flights and tour companies forced parents to wait until their teens were already emancipated before they could give them the experience of their lives. Nowadays, however, this has all changed. Companies such as Big Brother Backpacking (www.bigbrotherbackpacking.com) offer tours specifically for youths looking to do something life changing with their summer (or parents who are looking to get a little quiet time). Considered leaders in the art of teen adventure travel, Big Brother Backpacking offers small, five person group tours aimed at teaching teens the art of travel leadership while providing them with the opportunity to see something more than just their home town. As a tour company specifically aimed towards students, Big Brother Backpacking provides a coming of age European travel adventure without the worry that your child will end up spending the entire time (and allowance) in a bar in Amsterdam. Since the company allows the travelers themselves to determine where the trip will go in real-time, students are taught how to plan and execute a trip in a small group, make close friends from a variety of backgrounds, and experience Europe in a hands on way. Instead of being forced into a learning environment they will attempt to ignore, teens are given a firsthand opportunity to see what personal success through determination really means (not to mention getting a bit of much needed exercise away from the computer and a solid geography lesson).
For parents willing to wait until graduation and splurge on a cross country drinking tour, there are also companies aimed towards allowing the youth to run wild for the first time. Bus tours for post grads such as Contiki tours (www.contiki.com) or European Bus Tours (www.europe-bus-tours.com) offer the chance to see a variety of bars and clubs across the continent (and maybe a site or two along the way). (Unlike a backpacking tour, however, these bus tours leave much to be desired in the way of experience, as without photos a lot of the trip’s events are mysteriously forgotten the morning after.) For parents looking to send their kids on a budgeted sightseeing trip (careful of the hidden fees), bus tours are a good way of knowing where your child is and what they are up to on any given day.
Whichever you choose, remember that this summer can be different. Your child can be satisfied with learning and gaining life experience, can be kept safe, and can truly enjoy themselves doing something productive. Now it is just a matter of letting them go.

The World Travel Awards has recognised the Sandals Royal Hicacos Hotel as a leading hotel in Cuba for the seventh time in a row.
Beautifully located on a tranquil and serene stretch of the famous Varadero Beach in the province of Matanzas, on the western coast of Cuba, the hotel offers a fantastic location for tourists enjoying beach Cuba holidays with the Varadero International Airport only 30 minutes away and downtown Varadero being just ten minutes away by car.
The luxury all inclusive hotel has 404 suites including one Presidential Suite and two Sandals Royal Suites, as well as an array of facilities including three freshwater swimming pools, four whirlpools, three tennis courts, squash courts, a mini basketball court, table tennis, a Sandals signature spa; and five gourmet restaurants.
During Cuba holidays at the Sandals Royal Hicacos, guests can relax and be pampered at the hotel spa; work out at the modern fitness centre; or choose from fun-packed watersports including water skiing, banana boating, scuba diving, kayaking, snorkelling, pedal paddle boats, windsurfing and sailboat excursions.
Sandals Royal Hicacos Hotel stood out from other Varadero hotels at the World travel Awards 2011 because of its quality of services offered to guests, staff training, high security, and the kindness and team spirit of staff members.
The Director, Business Processes and Administration of Sandals Resorts International, Wayne Cummings, congratulated staff at the hotel and added that 225 000 travel agencies and professionals in the tourism industry voted for Sandals Royal Hicacos out of a wide selection of Cuba hotels in an annual survey.
Hailed as the “Oscars of the travel industry” by the global media, the World Travel Awards Caribbean & The Americas Ceremony honoured the destinations, hotels and organisations that have largely contributed to the Caribbean tourism industry sector over the past year.
Varadero looks set to welcome even more travellers who are visiting the coastal resort as American tourists are allowed to visit the Caribbean island legally for the first time in decades with the help of specialised tours and packages.
Earlier this year, President Obama relaxed restrictions on Cuba travel for American residents for religious, academic, educational, and cultural purposes or to conduct business within the medical and agricultural sectors.
The new law has led to an increase in demand for charter flights to Cuba from U.S airports and new airports that are now allowed to operate charter flights to the communist nation include Tampa International Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Dallas Fort Worth International, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International, O’Hare International in Chicago, Pittsburgh International, and San Juan Louis Munoz Marin International in Puerto Rico.
The Secretary of the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD), Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak told travel trade professionals this week that the tourism industry must find ways to reduce carbon footprints to combat climate change and protect the United Arab Emirates’ cultural heritage.
The secretary spoke at the opening of the World Green Tourism conference in Abu Dhabi earlier this week, and highlighted the importance of sustainable tourism while finding ways to provide environmentally-friendly Abu Dhabi holidays.
Al Mubarak explained: “Abu Dhabi has a fantastic natural heritage with a real mix of geology, habitats and species, on land and in the sea. Several million birds each year pass through Abu Dhabi on their migration from the heart of Asia southwards to Africa, or eastwards to India or beyond.
“In addition to the biodiversity value, the natural environment of the UAE is closely associated with the cultural heritage of the Emirati people.
“Given these natural assets and their importance to the cultural identity of the UAE, there is a world of opportunity for a new kind of tourism in Abu Dhabi that not only raises awareness on the unique biodiversity of the Emirate, but can also play a role in celebrating and safeguarding the cultural heritage of its people.”
The World Green Tourism conference is hosted by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority and Environment Agency Abu Dhabi, and is dedicated to promoting the sustainable tourism sector.
The opening day of the conference programme was aimed at finding ways in which the main players in the travel and tourism industry, such asAbu Dhabi hotels and airlines, could offer greener operations and make their businesses more sustainable.
The conference was moderated by Geoffrey Lipman, an expert in green tourism, and the first debate questioned if large scale tourism could ever become sustainable.
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and over the last year, there has been a significant increase in the number of business travellers and tourists enjoyingholidays to Abu Dhabi.
“It is vitally important that as Abu Dhabi seeks to diversify its economy and to encourage the tourism sector to grow and contribute more to the economy, that we do so in an environmentally responsible manner,” added Al Mubarak.
“Creating jobs and building capacity amongst locals to manage our natural assets so that we can see not just a growth in tourism but in sustainable eco-tourism is equally important.”
The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority was recognised as the World’s Leading Tourist Board by the World Travel Awards earlier this year for its success in promoting holidays in Abu Dhabi in various countries around the world.
Wouldn’t it be great to travel the world and get paid for doing so? When most people think about traveling, they think of the two outdated ‘travel models.
1) Work really, really hard and save a lot of money. Once you have ‘enough cash,’ you travel for as long as you can before going broke and getting another job (or go back to your old one).
2) Travel as a part of your job. These would be low-paying jobs like working on a cruise ship, as a tour guide, bartender, adventure sport instructor, or simply getting a regular job in an exotic location. A better option, to be sure, but…
How can you travel wherever your heart desires, ‘working’ at something that fascinates you? The answer is closer that you may imagine, and a lot more attainable. No, you don’t have to sell anything to your friends or join a cult. I present to you option 3.
3) Utilize simple technology to automatically provide people with value. For doing so, you make money.
Sound like fun? It definitely is.
The underground movement of travelers who hold no jobs and ‘work’ out of internet café’s and on laptops a few hours a day (or a week) grows larger every day. Here are some quick ways you can join this group.
• Film your travel adventures and drive Internet traffic using your videos. You’re taking pictures and videos anyway, so why not make some money for doing so? Did you know you can use sites like YouTube and Flickr to send traffic to websites that will PAY you for the traffic?
• Write about your travel adventures. Most ‘travel writers’ work like mad to make a few measly hundred bucks selling their stories to travel magazines. Instead, land a high-paying job on Elance or Guru… or better yet, post your stories to your own easy-to-create blog and make a Google Adsense income off of your readers.
• Become a salesman for the biggest store in the world… Ebay! This is one of the most under-appreciated travel-income methods of all time. Most people think they have to ship a physical product on Ebay… which limits your inventory to what you could fit in your luggage or backpack. Unfortunately (fortunately for you!) this is completely wrong. You can sell digital products like e-books and courses on Ebay and never pay a red-cent for shipping. For physical products, you can also easily setup a fulfillment center that will ship your stuff without your ever having to lift a finger.
• Drive internet traffic to sites using simple techniques. Can you get on an online forum and answer other people’s questions about a subject? Then you’ve got enough skill to drive internet traffic! If you send traffic to websites looking for customers on your subject, you can get paid for it.
Making an income while traveling isn’t as difficult as it may seem… you just need to take action on a few simple steps that not many people know about. Soon, you will be making more money while traveling than you would if you had a 9-5 job! The only thing stopping you is taking action.

Off late, we see a deluge of road trip movies. This genre has now become quite popular amongst the audiences. Now, a movie which tries to culminate the adventure of road trip with horror and thrill, is something to look forward to! Wrecker starts when two friends Emily and Lesley (Anna Hutchison and Andrea Whitburn) decides to go for a road trip to get away from all. Emily borrows her boyfriend’s Mustang GT and they embark on an exciting road trip to desert. When Emily makes a decision to turn off the busy highway and on to a lone, desert road, a short cut route, all hell breaks loose, when they soon find themselves the target of a mysterious, relentless and psychotic trucker who forces them into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. With an unknown evil force bearing down on them and a long stretch of deserted highway ahead, their idyllic road trip becomes their worst nightmare.”
Apparently, Wrecker is the remake of Steven Spielberg’s 1971 action movie Duel. The only difference between the two movies is, Duelwas about a terrified motorist stalked on a remote and lonely road by the mostly unseen driver of a mysterious tanker truck and Wrecker is about two females on road trip who were stalked by a psychotic trucker. Spielberg’s Duel is considered as one of the greatest TV movies. Wrecker tries to revive this classic, adding the elements of horror and thrill into it.
Wrecker was taken to Cannes this year and its first trailer was unveiled there itself. The setting in the movie is supposed to be an American State, but the shooting location of the film can easily be recognized as British Columbia. The trailer of the film is also so engaged. The clip shows more of the film’s story. Emily and Lesley are forced off the road, by a rogue tow truck driver. They try to escape and unable to find help anywhere.
Horror fans are in for treat this Friday! Wrecker promises to give us lots of twists and turn
There is a common complaint in every household these days. Everyone has gotten so busy in their lives that you can hardly see each other despite staying in a same house. It’s not that you don’t miss your family. But you know how hard it is to find time for even the mundane tasks, especially if you are the bread winner. It really becomes difficult to set your priorities sometimes. The only option you are left with is going out on a Family Vacation at-least once a year which is not so difficult these days.
If you are an employee, check out how many leaves you have at your disposal for that year. It is important that if you are going out on a vacation you must have a descent amount of leaves. This figure determines how far and long you may go out with your family. People usually spare at least a week for their family vacation. Sometimes they also take their families along when they are out on business trip at a tourist destination. This serves both the purposes.
If you want a longer vacation, you have to be sure of your journey dates. These matter when it comes to flight bookings & accommodations. If you wish to save your money book your flight in advance. Check out the seasonality of those destinations and book accordingly. If you are lucky enough you might get some good all inclusive vacationdeals during off seasons. It definitely pays.
In case you find a long weekend in the year do not miss out on that opportunity. You may choose some nearby destination which could save your commuting time and have more fun instead. Go for a nice weekend getaway spot where you don’t need a lot of planning. But then you don’t feel like you were on a vacation. It’s just like a short trip. Still whatever brings you closer to your family is definitely worth it.
It is important with whom you go more than where you go. And if your motive behind this vacation is relaxing and enjoying with your loved ones it is important that you buy an all inclusive vacation. There are some cool travel portals online where you can customize your own travel package and make the payment in advance so that you do not have to carry any cash or bear with any other last minute hassles. If you are a couple it is okay to be completely on your own. But when you take your kids or aged men or women along with you on your vacation, it is advisable to take a caretaker who would assist you with the mundane tasks while you can stay rested all the time.
Always go for a genuine travel brand. They know the places and the people over there very well. They guide you along the journey in case you face any emergency. They plan and arrange for most of the things you may require in case of crisis.

While a road trip from Barcelona, Spain to Milano, Italy can be made in under 10 hours, the adventure couldn’t be complete without a few stops along the way. Driving along the Spanish coast through Marseille, Toulon, Nice and Monte Carlo almost begs of a two or three day journey to take it all in.
Out of Barcelona, you’ll start on B-10 then take C-58 / C-17 as you head toward AP-7. Now would be a good time to fill up on petrol and pick up thirty Euro for the tolls you’ll encounter.
Your next road change will be to C-33 with a toll of 1.25 EU. That will be followed by E-15/AP-7 and another toll of 10.50 EU. You will have traveled 160 km by this point and will be entering the country of France and the city of Girona. Take in a museum here. The Museu del Cinema offers an interactive journey into the history of the cinema, from Chinese shadows to the magic of television. Located at Sequia 1, Girona.
Coleccion de Automoviles de Salvador Claret offers a collection of more than 300 vehicles including cars, lorries, motorcycles, velocipedes, bicycles and engines in addition to an aviation collection. Located at Sils, Selva, Girona. There are many other museums as well, including Museu d’Historia de la Joquina (a toy museum.)
Continue on AP-7 through Capmany, stopping for a quick tour of the historic Capmany castle, dating back to the eleventh century. Stop in for some tapas and a sangria before driving on AP-7 for a while longer. Take A-9/E-15 at the exit.
You’ll have to buy another toll ticket at Le Perthus and again at Montpellier 2 and 1. Beware, there are speed cameras at A9 km marker 102.3 and A9 km marker 59.7. Exit A-9 at exit number 25 onto A54 toward Nimes, Arles and Marseille.
Take N572 / E80 followed by N113 / E80. If you are getting tired, consider resting your head on a pillow in Saint-Martin-de-Crau, France. This small town is quaint and thick with history. They offer a charming Friday morning market you’re sure to enjoy.
Out of Saint-Martin-de-Crau, take A7 / E714 / E80. You have many tolls to go, make sure you have plenty of Euro on hand. Close to Marseille, take A8 / E80. Be wary of speed cameras at A8 km marker 147.0, A8 km marker 148.0, A8 km marker 149.0, A8 km marker 151.4 and A8 km marker 196.8.
Stop in Cannes or Nice along your way for a bite to eat and a visit to any one of their dozens of museums. Don’t forget to sample a few French pastries along the way as well.
About 40 km out of Nice you’ll pass into Italy. Take A10 / E80 for about 50 km then head toward Milano. You can stop along the way at Genova, also called Genoa, and take in some sites there. Acquario di Genova is the largest marine park in Europe and is appropriately located on the waterfront at Ponte Spinola. A revolving view of the city is available at Bigo, located in the Porto Antico area.
Out of Genova, you’ll take A26 to your final destination, Milano, Italy. Have a cookie on us!

Have you ever wanted to travel the world and make money for writing about what you see? It’s not as hard as you may imagine. Using a few underground techniques, you can be making a healthy income in no-time flat for writing about traveling the world!
Here are the ways you can make money as a travel writer:
1) Traditional Method: Selling Your Stories To Travel Magazines and Newspapers.
This is the most common and most well-known method. Ironically, it also pays the least of all the methods.
You can take two paths when selling your article to a magazine. First you can query a magazine on their interest about a particular subject. If interested, they will agree to buy your article if it meets their standards. The second method is to write the article, then try and sell it.
To find magazines and periodicals that purchase travel stories, go to the library and check out the most recent Writers Market and you’ll have over a dozen periodicals that pay anywhere from a few hundred bucks to a few thousand dollars for an article.
The risky side to this is that there are no guarantees of payment, and you must either have a great story or be a great writer to make this work. Not impossible, just tough.
2) Writing For Other People’s Blogs.
If you can write a 400-1500 word post on any given subject, you can sell the post to a blog at a set price. Heres why: Blogs constantly need new content. It’s how they stay fresh with their readers and how they stay well-ranked in the search engines.
However, writing a new post every few days is a difficult task! If you take over that task for a blog owner, you’re going to be saving them a TON of time and effort, providing their readers with great value, and making an income for a project that is relatively easy for you to complete.
You can get paid anywhere from 20 bucks to a few hundred dollars for this kind of writing… and it’s a LOT easier to do that writing for a magazine.
Think of it: You spend a day writing 5 articles and sell the articles for $30 dollars each. Now you’ve made $150 dollars for a couple of hours of work and everyone is happy.
3) Writing for Your Own Blog.
Another option is to write your own blog and use your travel stories to drive traffic to it. You’d be surprised at the number of bored, lifeless people who want to live vicariously through someone traveling the world. You can then monetize your blog by selling adspace or selling products related to your blog. This sounds basic, but it has made many-a-traveler tens and even 100’s of thousands of dollars per year.
4) Completing Writing Projects on ‘Project’ Sites.
There are literally hundreds of writing projects posted every single day on Elance, Guru, DoMyStuff, and other ‘project’ posting websites.
All you have to do is set up a free account as a content provider, then answer people’s requests for writing projects. Once you’re done, the funds will be electronically deposited into your bank account, and you can withdraw the money from any ATM in the world. You can then pick up another project… or complete several projects all at once!
Many projects go for $1000+ dollars, so it doesn’t take a lot of these to be able to travel well and travel often. You can even do the work on the airplane ride to your next destination!
If you have any writing skill at all, you will be able to pick one of these methods and become a well-paid traveler.

Bhutan is a small country with a culture and tradition that has remained isolated from the modern world for a long time. The doors to this hitherto unknown culture have been opened up to the world only recently.
Very little is known about the people, their traditions and their culture outside their country. Some interesting things that you should know while embarking on a Bhutan adventure are as follows.
In spite of the rate of illiteracy and poverty, the people in Bhutan are the happiest people amongallthe Asian countriesand hold the eighth rank worldwide. Everyday life steeped in Buddhism has enabled the people to remain happy ensconced in their distinct culture and tradition.
Democratization of Country
In 1999, “King Jigme SingyeWanchuk” felt that democracy is a better option than monarchy for the progress of the country and formed a constitution with the help of the people in 2005. After the constitution had come into effect, the King resigned from his position of being the monarch of the country in 2008.
The idea of Gross National Happiness was mooted by “King Jigme SingyeWanchuk” himself as an additional measure of national growth and progress that is defined by GNH. It is more “happy” than its neighbouring country India whose rank is 125th on the same scale. Even the French and the British are trying to incorporate the same measure in their measure of economic progress.
Traditional dress consisting of the Driglam Namzha is worn by the people when they go about their business in the daytime. Every person wears traditional dresses with pride and feels happy about it.
Identity in Isolation
The people of this country were always afraid of being conquered by Tibetan hordes. Later on, they avoided becoming a British colony. It led to isolation from the external world that strengthened their sense of a distinct identity even further.
Formation of Country
The country became one under the rule of “Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal”. He was a warlord from Tibet who had fled that country and formed his own kingdom. He built the Dzongs to counter any attack from external forces.
Influence of Britain
The Bhutanese army was defeated by British forces in a battle which took place in the northern part of Bengal. The King of Bhutan had to agree to a treaty with the British which allowed them to have control over its foreign policies. India inherited this influence in 1947 after its independence from British rule.
Influence of Superstition
Buddhism is the main religion of the people, but there are pockets of people following the Hindu religion also. The people are highly superstitious and keep erect phalluses carved from wood on the lintels of their front doors to keep evil spirits at bay.
Archery is the national sport of the country. People dressed in traditional dresses line up on two sides of thefield where the competition is held.One teamshootsarrows atthe other team which are very sharp while the opponent team tries to distract the shooters by waving their arms.

Bangalore Cabs Online
How doest it differs booking a cab or taxi online for hire or rent? When it is offline one needs to roam here and there to find the best agency and one doesn’t know the actual rates for hiring a cab. But when it is online due to transparency the cost is out before you book a taxi and one can choose over a multiple of online booking agencies. If a tourist is looking forward to hire a Bangalore taxi online for city travel he or she would first check out if that particular online cab booking website has its operations in Bangalore. Now segregate and compare the prices and opt the cheapest or economical to ones budget. The price varies with the cabs we hire. And one should be cautious enough before booking o verify completely if there any hidden charges.
Bangalore Airport Taxi
When the tourists intend to have the booked cab pick them from the airport itself then they need to check out for Cab service in Bangalore airport. One need not consume time and reach Bangalore city for hiring a cab. These services are very much needy as the international airports would be in out skirts of city.
This saves time when the tourists arriving Bangalore like to have quick dip in the nearby tourist’s spots help a lot like Nandi Hills, which is very near to Bangalore. Taxi services from Bangalore to Nandi hills are available with all online cab booking agencies.
There are number of tourist destinations in and around Bangalore and the weekends get flocked by Bangaloreans. The top destinations near to Bangalore for a road trip are Mysore, Munnar, Nandi Hills, Mysore, Ooty, Coorg, Pondicherry, Goa and Tirupati. These are few popular places to name. Apart from these Chennai and Coimbatore are famous for its business trips being industrial cities. Of the famous out station trips from Bangalore Ooty, Coorg and Mysore tops the chart but these days Munnar is also competing with Honeymoon trips. Also, hiring Bangalore to Munnar taxi is very economical for the new couple.
Even the cites out side Karnataka like Tirupati, chennai, Pondicherry and Coimbatore are frequently booked. Tirupati and Chennai stand top and Bangalore Coimbatore taxi is competing well due to its textile industry.

I being a frequent traveler I prefer my ride as comfy as possible, so travel with least luggage is always in my proposition.
In past, I prefer myself travelling with tons of items and number of bags. But this makes my journey a very heavy and I find myself carrying only my bags all around and not enjoying my tour. Sometimes I found myself carrying toiletries and other day-to-day items also despite of the fact, which I know for sure, is made available as soon as I enter my room where I suppose to stay while travelling. But travelling with fewer bags is like an oasis for people like me, who does not bother to spend tons of money on buying travelling products. . You do understand why I prefer to go with smallest luggage possible. I like myself travelling with all my essentials but at the same moment I want my trip to be as comfortable as it can be. For this, I have to learn to pack perfectly for my next road trip. So before Hiring a Taxi or Booking a Cab for next trip you must consider some of the things, which I find myself vey relevant to this context.
Limit your Luggage: Try to limit your luggage to the minimum number because if you are Booking a Cab or just Hiring a Taxi, means you have not all the space in the world .You do not necessarily like to stuff all the space of your Rental Car with your luggage. Organizing is yet another step one must follow. Try to pack like soldiers do i.e., roll your two or three clothes as a whole, second step is to use every crevice, means always look for the kind of bag having lots of pockets. You can also put your rolled socks in your shoes. And if you are very fond of shoes and loves to travel with them like a lot than wearing your heavy and big shoe while travelling and putting your sleepers or loafers in your bag is yet another tip to cut down your luggage. If someone is either very fond of jewelry or is using any kind of medicines than Multi cabinet box is like an apt choice.
Be ferocious: Whenever you decide to travel then be ferocious and harsh on yourself while packing. Because most of us pack almost everything which we need while staying at home and forget about travelling part. Try to use Darwin’s Theory for packing, so first of all spread your must take items then again selects on the basis of availability and use. You must shock by the outcome of your selection and lightness of your luggage. This way you can go for the trip with almost no luggage.
Become security expert: While travelling you have to be alert and have to keep your documents safe from being theft. The best way is hiding under your layered clothes or wearing money belt like things can assure your peaceful journey. With under laying pockets in your clothes it becomes easy to hide and secure your documents. This also helps to take out when necessary and urgent.
When all this sums up gives you the pleasure of tension free and luggage free journey to your dream destination. So enjoy and relish your ride with tons and tons of space in your Rental Cars.
This article describes the popularity of the island of Phuket as a destination suitable for many kinds of travelers, including families. It describes its location, things to do and what to pack for a family vacation to Phuket.
Thailand remains a popular destination with all travelers: young adults on the backpacker trail, honeymooners and families alike. Thailand is world renowned for its shopping and lively nightlife which can be found in Bangkok but it is also one of the most family friendly countries in the world. Outside of Bangkok, and easily reached by plane from the capital, there are jungles and islands which offer an adventurous family holiday.
One popular island is Phuket. While this is a popular choice for travelers and honeymooners seeking relaxation and luxury, it also attracts families. An hour and 25 minutes from Bangkok by plane, this island is in the North Andaman coast which is the best area for children. A variety of water sports and activities are available and suitable for all ages, from older children who may enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and rafting, to smaller ones who can paddle in the calm, clear waters. Boat trips are popular where whale sharks may be spotted. Many of the beach resorts are self-contained and for a family, villa accommodation may offer many other services including cooking facilities, privacy and flexibility that are usually not offered by a hotel stay.
To ensure all your family holidays in Phuket go smoothly, it is wise to plan ahead and pack efficiently, especially if you are travelling with younger children. Packing can be one of the biggest chores of organizing a holiday: from taking the right amount of clothing and essentials and deciding which of your favorite things to bring, to making sure your luggage is adequate. Deciding what to pack is vital for children and for family holidays in Phuket, less can definitely be more.
Make a list, perhaps with your children if they are old enough, of the things that they really need. The weather in Phuket is tropical and always warm and the dress code is casual. Lightweight cotton clothing is the most comfortable and sufficient for keeping cool in the humid tropical weather. A few of their favorite items of clothing should be enough, along with shorts, t-shirts and plenty of swimwear and beach shoes.
Children can help plan their family holidays in Phuket by packing their own bag for the journey’s duration and depending on the baggage allowance restrictions, can be packed and carried for the plane journey to Bangkok and onwards to Phuket. The most important thing to ensure when flying long-haul is that the kids are entertained: pack plenty of reading, puzzle and coloring books, card games and paper and IPads, quiet hand-held games and portable DVD player for longer stretches. Lastly, a soother and soft toy if age appropriate, and plenty of non-sugary snacks to equalize ear pressure when taking off and landing.
Lastly, in addition to a few nice pieces of evening wear should you make it to one of the many luxurious restaurants, don’t forget the last minute essentials – mosquito repellent and sunscreen, battery chargers for all phones, cameras, laptops and electrical equipment as well as appropriate plug adapters.
Each year, a large number of families make the decision to take a summer vacation. Despite the fact that a large number of individuals do vacation during the summer months, there are even more families that do not. Which type of family are you?
There are a number of reasons why a particular family may be unable to take a family vacation. One of the most common reasons involves the cost. Unfortunately, many individuals mistakenly believe that a vacation has to be an extravagant adventure. It doesn’t matter whether you travel to the closest amusement park, camp overnight at a state park, or travel around the world, each can be considered a summer vacation.
In addition to the cost of a vacation, a large number of families are unable to take a family vacation due to their busy schedules. Summer vacations are popular because they are often the only time that a family can take a break from their daily activities. If you are able to set aside time, whether it be three days or three weeks, you are encouraged to schedule a summer vacation with your family. Doing so has an unlimited number of benefits.
Perhaps, the greatest benefit of scheduling a summer vacation with your family is the amount of time that you will be able to spend together. In this day in age, many families are rarely able to spend time together. Long work hours, homework, and busy sports schedules often prevent a family from enjoying dinner or other fun activities together. In some cases, a summer vacation is the only way that a family can spend uninterrupted time together.
The relaxation that a summer vacation will provide your family with is another benefit of scheduling one. Today, children must operate and function differently than they had to in the past. School age children are often bombarded with large amounts of homework, on a daily basis. This homework, along with active sport schedules and pressure to be the best, can be difficult for children to handle. A summer vacation may provide them with the rest and relaxation that they need and deserve.
In addition to your children receiving relaxation, it is quite possible that you and your spouse could as well. It is true that children have a lot of pressure placed on them, but so do parents. Scheduling a summer vacation with your family will give you the opportunity to forget about work related issues and home cleaning. These are some of the problems and issues that only a summer vacation could cure.
If you are interested in scheduling a summer vacation, you and your family are encouraged to pick a destination together. Selecting a summer vacation destination as a family will enable everyone to have access to fun filled activities. In addition to selecting the perfect family vacation, your children may experience a feeling of importance. This feeling of importance if often generated from having an input on a large decision, such as your next summer vacation destination.
As previously mentioned, a large number of activities can be considered a summer vacation. If you are interesting in taking a vacation this summer, you and your family should take the time to find the perfect summer vacation destination. Why would you want to continue to spend your summers around the house, especially when everyone could be enjoying themselves away from home?
If you are planning a beach vacation for the whole family, then you will likely be looking for a resort that caters to a broad range of needs, including those of children.
Many such resorts are only too happy to accommodate kids, and some even offer programs and activities geared towards children of varying age groups.
To make the best of your beach family resort vacation, you may find the following tips helpful. Look for resorts that include a lot of extras in the price, such as:
* A premium location directly on the beach, or complimentary shuttle to a nearby safe and clean beach
* Sports and activities geared towards the age groups your kid/s fall in. Many resorts have full-blown kids’ clubs that keep your kids involved and having fun all day long.
* Family activities, if desired
* Pool areas and maybe even special water features such as rivers, fountains and waterslides
* Babysitting, especially in the evenings if the two of you (adults) would like to enjoy an adults only dinner or two
* Menus and restaurants that cater to kids’ tastes, such as hotdogs and ice cream (NOTE: Truly all-inclusive resorts will offer all meals and drinks as part of the price of your stay)
* Suites or other room configurations geared towards families, such as those including foldout or pull-out beds and easy access to activities
* Safety: Check into the safety precautions and layout of the resort. Some destinations are far more kid-friendly than others. One further note on the type of beach; depending on the age of your children, different types of beaches may be more appropriate. For instance, teenagers may want large waves and slightly rougher water for trying out surfing, sailing or windsurfing. For young children and toddlers, on the other hand, you will likely want to look for a quiet and calm beach, perhaps on the leeward side of an island or nestled in a bay.
Have a great time on your vacation, and don’t forget your sunscreen!

The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) recently carried out a Caribbean Economy Impact Study to analyse the region’s current situation. The study showed that the Caribbean remains “the most travel and tourism-intensive region in the world”. With economic impact from travel and tourism equalling 14 per cent GDP, 13 per cent of employment, 12 per cent of investment and 17 per cent of exports, the importance of the tourism industry and the quality of Caribbean holidays are more than clear to see for tourism experts and holidaymakers worldwide.
This report was commissioned by CHTA, along with the cooperation of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). Josef Forstmayr, president of the CHTA, who announced the report’s release at an event in St Kitts, explained how the vitality of the tourism sector in the Caribbean countries’ economies shaped the individual Caribbean nations, pointing out that travel and tourism directly or indirectly employs 2.2 million Caribbean people.
Statistics from the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) and Smith Travel Research indicate that tourist arrivals to the Caribbean have grown, making a total of $23.1 million in 2010, up 4.4 per cent from $22.1 million in 2009. The 2010 arrivals represent 2.5 per cent of the global total of 881 million international travellers and 36.6 per cent of the 30.3 million of United States-based global tourists.
As Forstmayr also pointed out, the research clearly shows how the profits of theCaribbean holidays market have increased over time and need to continue increasing, in order for the region’s economy to continue growing and prospering. “Of the 10 countries in the world most dependent on tourism, seven are in the Caribbean,” he said “There has to be a strong consensus of our leaders and the public so that travel and tourism receive the dull support it needs as the Caribbean’s most vital export industry. It is the fastest way to create jobs, grow the economy and generate income for all.” Travel and tourism’s contribution to the Caribbean’s GDP will total $70.7 billion by the year 2021, up from $48.6 billion in 2011
Another one of the report’s findings showed that even though the quality of Caribbean hotels and resorts has not fallen, hotel occupancy remained flat in 2010, decreasing to 60.4 per cent from 60.4 per cent in 2009. Regardless, rates and revenues were higher, average daily rate (ADR) grew 4 per cent in 2010 to $163.80, up from $157.29 in 2009. RevPAR reached $98.73 in 2010 up 3.9 per cent from $95 in 2009. However these results lagged behind compared to the ones obtained in 2007, when Caribbean hotels posted a collective 66.6 per cent occupancy, ADR of $201.31 and RevPAR of $134.01.
Lastly, and on a happier note, the research found a total of 20,570,000 holidaymakers arrived via cruise ship in 2010 growing 8.2 per cent from 19,016,100 in 2009. Tourists enjoying holidays in the Caribbean can live once in a lifetime experiences, such as swimming with dolphins, scuba diving or dancing to the intoxicating rhytms of reggae during exotic Jamaica holidays, for example .
The Caribbean countries taken into account for the report include: Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Anguilla, Bermuda, Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, the former Netherlands Antilles, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The prestigious World Travel Awards took place on Wednesday 19th October, 2011 with the annual Caribbean & the Americas Gala Ceremony honouring the best of the best in the Caribbean at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Leading tourism companies, organisations, experts, industry leaders and the global media arrived for a glittering event at the Sandals property, which offers some of the most luxurious accommodation and facilities available for discerning tourists taking Jamaica holidays.
Awards at the annual event went to St Lucia who won the title of “Caribbean’s Leading Honeymoon Destination”, while Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island was voted as the“Caribbean Leading Private Island“.
The battle of the best Caribbean hotels and resorts was finally resolved with the Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic winning the coveted title over properties including Half Moon in Jamaica, Jumby Bay in Antigua, Sandy Lane in Barbados and Four Seasons Resort in Nevis.
Jamaica holidays proved their ongoing success as the tropical island was awarded as the “Caribbean’s Leading Destination” for the sixth year in a row.
Jamaica‘s success did not stop there as the island nation was honoured as the “Caribbean’s Leading Cruise Destination“, after the new cruise terminal in Falmouth opened earlier this year, as well as the “Caribbean’s Leading Tourist Board” title following a 5.7 increase in the number of tourists taking holidays to Jamaica in the last year.
The Director of Tourism for Jamaica, John Lynch, said: “We are honoured to be recognised as the ‘Caribbean’s Leading Destination’.
“Jamaica is committed to providing travellers with an unparalleled experience.
“We all continue to develop our infrastructure and tourism product to ensure we maintain an edge in an increasingly competitive landscape.”
The President, World Travel Awards, Graham Cooke, spoke of the region’s resilience during the global recession.
He commented: “The Caribbean is a textbook example of how the travel and tourism industry can serve an engine for growth, with the ability to steer the region out of one of the most challenging periods in global financial history.
“It is during times of economic uncertainty that world-class brands come into their own, continuing to reinvent themselves and grow market share – traits all shared by tonight’s World Travel Award winners.”
He added: “Jamaica in particular has proved its credentials as a world-class tourism brand, thanks to its unrivalled mix of paradise beaches, luxury resorts and warmth of welcome.

It has improved services, reduce costs, open new channels and transform the competitive landscape. The following are the some of the applications of e-commerce in different sectors.
Ordering journals electronically
Universities and many other organizations order periodicals for their libraries constantly. New periodicals appear every day, people change their preferences, and the librarians are busy. A university will contact an agent to place the orders. The agent, who is in contact with hundreds of publishers, consolidates orders from several universities and then places orders with the publishers. This process is both slow and expensive for the library, which pays commission and loses discount and that the publisher passes on to the agent. It enables a university to submit electronically its encrypted orders and a secure payment authorization to a central computer by EDI. The programs verifies the order and the authorization, transfers the order by EDI to the publishers, and the payment authorization to the automated clearing house for EFT from the buyers bank to the sellers bank.
Broker-base services In a broker-based service, brokers work as intermediaries between buyers and sellers. The buyers can be individuals or organizations. Some of the most notable services are travel agencies, job placement agencies, real estate agencies, insurance agencies, and stock market brokerages. Agents basically make the markets. Some of the markets, such as stocks and travel, may be non-negotiated prices, but a variety of prices exist. Brokers provide many services. For example, travel agents are information brokers that pass information from product suppliers to customers. They also take and process orders, collect money, provide travel assistance, and assist with insurance, possibly providing health and safety suggestions.
Travel and tourism services The travel industry is expanding rapidly around the globe. The Internet is an ideal place to plan, explore, and arrange almost any trip. The home page of a virtual travel agency, such as Expedia, tells you about some of the services available. Some of the services are customized per the consumer’s request.
Virtual travel agencies will offer you almost all the services you will find in a conventional travel agency, ranging from information to reservation and purchasing of tickets for your trips, accommodations, and entertainment. In addition to regular services, you will find services most conventional travel agencies do not offer, such as tips provided by people who have experienced certain situations, electronic travel magazines, fare comparisons, currency conversion, fare tracking, worldwide business and the places locator, shopping for travel accessories and books, experts opinions, major international and travel news, driving directions in the United States and several other countries, chat rooms and bulletin boards, and frequent flier deals and personal mileage.
On-line publishing On-line publishing is the electronic delivery of newspapers, magazines, new, and other information through the Internet. It is often related to advertisement since it is provided free in most cases, to attract people to certain sites where advertisement is conducted. Today, on-line publishing is mainly used for disseminating information and for conducting sales transactions interactively Magazine and newspaper publishers such as Ad Week, PC Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angels Times are examples of the users of on-line publishing for dissemination of information. In the future, on-line publishing include more customized material that the reader will receive free, or will pay for.
On-line publishing includes newspapers, magazines, news, textbooks, music, artwork, video clips, and movies. Several publishing methods are in use. They include on-line archive approach, new medium approach, publishing intermediation, and dynamic or just-in-time approach. On-line archive is a digital archive such as library catalogues bibliographic databases. The new medium approach is used by those publishers that view the Web as a medium for creating new material. This form of publishing adds extra comprehensiveness to any issue or topic that traditional magazine publishing cannot offer. The publishing intermediation approach can be thought of as an on-line directory for news services. The dynamic or just-in-time approach is another method of on-line publishing. With these, approach content can be created in real-time and transmitted on the fly in the format best suited to the user’s location, tastes, and preferences.
Edutainment On-line publishing has grow into other areas of usage with concepts such as edutainment and push technology. Edutainment is a combination of education, entertainment, and games. One of the main goals of edutainment is to make the students become an active learner instead of a passive one. With active learning a student is more involved in the experience of learning and, therefore, it makes the learning experience richer and the knowledge gained more memorable.
There are managerial issues to consider with edutainment in on-line publishing. Educational games are delivered mostly as CD-ROMs. However, since 1998 there are an increasing number of companies that offer edutainment on-line in a distance learning format.
Knowledge dissemination On-line publishing is very closely related to the concept of Knowledge Dissemination, which can be done in several ways. In this section we briefly look at two applications: virtual teaching and on-line consulting.
Virtual teaching The concept of distance learning, or learning at home, is not new. Educational institutions have been offering correspondence degrees for decades. Lately, IT in general and the Web in particular expanded the opportunities for distance learning. Many universities offer limited courses and degrees, but use innovative teaching methods and multimedia support.
The virtual university concept allows universities to offer classes worldwide. Moreover, we may soon have integrated degrees, where students, customizing a degree that will best fit their needs, will be able to take courses at different universities.
On-line consulting This is a rapidly growing field in which tens of thousands of experts of all kinds sell their expertise, for a relatively low price, on the Internet. Here are some examples:
-Medical advice to provide consultation with top experts
-Management consulting to provide accumulated expertise from knowledge bases
-Legal advice to deliver legal consultation services to business
-Financial advice to offer extensive financial advice.
A road trip to the nearby boondocks can be a great way to spend a relaxing weekend with your near ones. You need a break from the monotonous routine and an exciting road trip will certainly be perfect.
So, pack your bags and get ready for an adventurous trip with some friends and family members. If you are willing to go alone then it is suggested to be a bit careful, and you must carry some weapons like knife and pistol. The highway roads and boondocks are quite unsafe for solo travellers. You should always stay prepared to handle any situation in which you might have to deal with malicious individuals or criminals.
You cannot go on a trip in your SUV or crossover vehicle, especially when you have to cover a long route. You need a wagon that can carry all your bags and can be turned into a bedroom at night, wherein you can rest during the journey. If you can relate to the last line and want a vehicle that can be perfect for your road trips and camping trips then, it is suggested to buy a customized travel trailer. A personalized trailer is a must have for every adventure enthusiast and traveller. This vehicle can help you in travelling with style and comfort. It can be your little home away from home, in which you can stay safe with your loved ones. Customized travel trailers can be furnished with elements like mini-kitchen, bedding, and even a shower space.
A customized trailer can be a great investment for people, who have to travel quite frequently. These travel trailers can be furnished with all the essential amenities that you need while travelling. These vehicles are mostly used by adventure enthusiasts and car racers. Some customized trailers can even accommodate an ATV or car. So, if you are an adventure lover and want to take your all-terrain vehicle, wherever you go then you should buy a travel trailer, which is spacious enough to accommodate your vehicle. You can easily find customized travel trailers for sale, and can easily buy one.
If you are not willing to invest in a new trailer then you can go for a secondhand one. There are many travel trailer retailers, who offer fully-furnished used trailers. You can easily get in touch with them and can get one at reasonable prices. You can even rent a travel trailer for your road trip or camping trip. So, book a travel trailer and get ready for a relaxing road trip or an exhilarating camping trip.
There is an old adage that if you go back-packing you should only take the absolute minimum amount of possessions that you think is possible, lay everything on the floor and then half it! Well we are not sure at Class Campers that this applies to taking a trip in a VW Camper but there are lessens to be learnt from this.
Firstly, it is worth thinking carefully about what you pile in to your bus. Ours was a classic example: portable satellite dish/receiver and 12 volt TV; 3 different tents and a swing ball for entertainment! All this and we forgot to take any plates or eating implements.
Secondly, too much weight will effect the ride of your bus and decrease your fuel economy, which to be fair isn’t very good anyway. I once asked on a VW Camper forum how I could make my bus faster whilst increasing fuel economy. The reply was “add lightness”, a suggestion that I have never forgotten.
How does one remember everything that you might need on a Volkswagen Camper road trip?
Some advocate a simple system by sticking a checklist to your fridge a week or two before you leave and then just add to it every time you have a thought! Others suggest that one should have your travelling equipment in your bus at all times.
Thereby, each time you go on a trip you can add to your supplies, after several road trips you should have everything you will require. Well although both of these methods work to a certain extent the first suggestion is fraught will problems and will inevitably leave you without something you really need. Like bog paper! The second suggestion is one that I have used for years. I cleared out my camper only a couple of months ago and there must have a ton of crap in there! Most of which had no use at all. And after which my fuel economy got noticeably better. So here’s how you do it! Well its how I figure is the best way.
Write out list of everything you think you might need and throw it away! Then get a pen and write a list of everything you will need to cook your breakfast/evening meal and make tea and coffee! Right that’s nearly everything you need. Then write out a list of everything you need to have a shit/shave and a shower. What you should have now is all the absolute basics but enough to get you through a day or two.
Now think about location specific stuff that you might require. Are you going to the Lake District or to New quay- Cornwall, because if you are then you are likely to be going walking or surfing so think about what you might need for these trips. Remember don’t overload your VW bus, there is absolutely no need to take 6 surf boards with you.
Finally, what will you need if something happens to your bus, it breaks down or you have a crash? Now this might not be so obvious to some folks out there so I have included a five part checklist at the end of the article. Suffice to say that your emergency equipment is more important than anything else. If you forget to take your plates you can always buy some. But if you have an emergency and you don’t have any kit it will be too late to do anything about it.

We usually have a festive mood every time we do grilling. We grill almost anything; e.g. steaks, chicken, burgers, chops, corn, eggs, bacon and other seafood like lobster, crab and tuna. The success of this grilling escapade may depend on the equipment we use.
Many people can spend a significant amount of money just to be sure that their grill is the best they can have. There are people who consider getting a Coleman Road Trip Grill. Aside from its being common in the market, it is very easy to set up and use. However, the fun most of the time pauses when the party is done and the process of clean up starts. Or, when the propane grill itself breaks down. No matter how expensive the outdoor grill is, if it was not properly maintained, its durability ends before we know it. Keeping it in good condition is our responsibility.
In some of the camping or sport stores, grill cases and covers are often available. These storage accessories keep the gear itself from rust when exposed to rain, dust or extreme heat from the sun. As much as possible, we store it in place where it is safe e.g. storage room, basement or garage. Though the grill set may look heavy, strong wind and rain can still topple it down. Cleaning it is one thing that we must be very keen to. At times, cleaning it using abrasive materials will not work because it can peel off the coating. Just use the non-abrasive green pad or a sponge when doing so. Sometimes the cast iron grill will need to be soaked in a soapy hot water so the residue will come off. It may take a few minutes to a few hours.
Coleman Road Trip Grill will probably come as an ace to some people. However, be cautious because it can cause fire! Always check if the regulator is functioning properly. If you do not know what the difference is, ask someone (probably a technician) to assist you. If you have been using this product for a long time already, you will know when it is malfunctioning. Trust your instincts. Go ahead and check it. Never leave it unattended while grilling. You’ll never know what will happen next.
These are just few of the basic ways to maintain a heavy duty grill like the coleman’s. There are different models. It is up to you to choose which one you think is best for you. If you have the manual with you, take time to read it. There are a lot of information there that can help optimize using this grill. It can walk you through the different parts. It tells you how to set it up properly. It also tells you where to have it serviced. In addition to that, there are do’s and dont’s which you may want to follow. Do these, and be a happy coleman road trip griller.
