How Travel makes you Wiser

Posted on February 26, 2014 in Traveling

iStock_000012050555XSmall_crop380wMost of us at one point or another have dreamed of travelling to faraway places on the other side of the world.  I myself always wanted to visit Africa since I was a small child who fell in love with “Elsa” the lion from born free.  We all have different reasons why we are drawn to foreign destinations; we all have that urge to experience new things stimulating our senses as we do so.  One of the greatest ways to learn about something or somewhere is to experience it firsthand.  When we travel to new places it is opening our minds up enhancing our creativity opening new doors to new places where we have physically or mentally never been.  This is what I would call a natural high you get an immediate rush right from the beginning of your travels.  Having a chance to visit other countries and learn how their different cultures approach different things in life gives us a much wider perspective on the world in general.

Finding a Good Travel Agent

Posted on in Traveling

A travel agent is someone who can help you book your tickets for traveling, arrange your accommodation and food, help you get your ticket booking for the shows etc.

Why need a travel agent?

  1. Though most people book your travel packages by themselves, some still tend to follow the old tradition of hiring a travel agent.

Our Fiji Traveling Experience

Posted on in Traveling

Our Fiji Traveling ExperienceHonestly we went to Fiji because were a little bit short on budget for bigger trip. It is really hard to beat Fiji in terms of value. This is mainly because for Australians flights are very cheap and it is only a few hours to get there. We’ve got your tickets for under 400$ each return.
Our criteria for this kind of holiday are quite strict – good resort (preferably 5 stars) and ability to offload kids to kids club. We’ve booked Radisson Blu Resort resort on Denarau Island mainly because it was very close to the airport and located in that refined are of 5 star resorts and golf club. When you’ve got small kids this is not about adventure anymore J
We’ve managed to snap a deal for just over 100$ per night for a room with garden view. As usually happens we didn’t like the first room they gave us as it was on ground floor , bit dark and looking and another resort buildings. They gave us a new room with a view to golf club which was way better.

One day in Sydney

Posted on in Traveling

One day in SydneyThe main Sydney treasures are the people and the weather. We’ve been living in Sydney for a while and till now cannot stop wondering how much this piece of land is blessed with a good weather. I can’t say we are not winging about local weather but probably it will never be good enough for us anywhere in the world. Human nature :-)
In Sydney you get clear blue skies most of the year, temperatures in the range of 18-27 (not counting the few hot days in summer when it can climb up to 40 – and few fresh days in winter when it is down to 12-13). Weather in Sydney compares favorably with other major Australian cities – Brisbane got hotter summer and much more humid, Melbourne is colder in the winter but can be unbearably hot in the summer, Perth is too far away, why we would talk about it :-)
As in any other city Sydney has a list of places you must visit, in our first trip “down under” at least to be photographed in front of something very recognizable, and then put all those pictures Facebook. There are quite a few hotels in Sydney a lot and the prices range from $ 100 up to exorbitant heights.

Bargain Holiday Hunting

Posted on in Traveling

I am kind of person that always looking best value for the money. This is especially important when it is time to book a holiday. IF you don’t do your homework properly and do not research a lot of options you can pay much more (sometimes 30-40%) for exactly the same product.

Flights

I prefer to book flights in low season. Sometimes moving your travel dates couple of weeks forward or backward can significantly change a price you pay for a flight. I know that because of work commitments not everybody has a luxury of being flexible with travel dates. I work as a contractor and usually decide myself when I get time off.

I found that Expedia site was probably the most useful for the destinations of my choice. Though you need to understand that not all airlines are presented even on big websites so it is always worth to check few of the at least.
