The Advantage of Booking A Cruise Trip

Image
When most people go on holiday, they buy a plane ticket to their destination, fly there, and stay at that stop for the duration of the trip. They may travel around a bit, but the cost of getting there is usually so high that they decide to stay to save money. Even if they love that location, it is the only one that they get to see. For example, they could take a flight to Punta Cana, stay in a resort, and spend each day walking along the white sand beaches or swimming in the warm, blue-green water.

A cruise, on the other hand, is far different. You are essentially going to many different locations, all at the same time. You will board the ship at a port city, so that is the first place that you get to see. Many people will even fly to the port a few days early so that their trip can include an extended time there. After the boat leaves the port, you have a day or two at sea. This can be very entertaining if you have never been on the ocean before, or at least not that far out. After …

Wanting to Be a Successful Travel Blogger?

Image
I believed I am already a successful travel blogger. Having been to over 30 countries and still counting, there are some things you must consider on how to become a successful travel blogger. Here are the very important points;

First you have got to remember – before becoming a travel blogger or starting a travel blog, you should first become a regular and passionate traveler. In other case there is no point writing about stuff you didn't experienced yourself. Then go buy yourself a good camera and keep looking for unusual photo opportunities. Don't forget to write about everything you see and experiences in your journal. Yes  you read it right, because sometimes we travel to places with no wifi (there are places witn no internet in this world). Our memory is not a computer, so its better to write it down and then upload to the blog.

Cycling The capital’s roads can be hair-raising for cyclists, but there are some wonderfully picturesque and safe cycling routes in the city. The Richmond to Hampton Court route along the Thames Path is a lovely eight-mile ride, culminating at the magnificent Hampton Court Palace, where you can grab a bite to eat or a cool drink.

Cycling is also a great calorie burner: you can burn off between 200 and 800 calories in an hour, so your leisur…

Five Things You Must Experience in the Himalayas

Image
Since Sir Edmund Hillary climbed the highest mountain on earth, taking a trip to Himalaya has been a dream of many adventurers. It is no fluke that Himalayas enjoy a lofty reputation among the places of a lifetime. The fact that Himalayas are immense makes it difficult to decide which sites to visit. Still, each visitor should at least try to experience the following:

1) Mount Everest

No trip should be complete without a visit to the base camp of the highest mountain the world. Although, this is one of the most frequented sites in Nepal but many tourists feel an amazing urge to climb the mountain. Amazingly, the urge to conquer Mount Everest is so great that many climbers, once came to the base camp as ordinary visitors, without a real interest of mountaineering.

2) Village Walks

There is so much to experience on foot, rather than by car or train in most regions, and the Himalayas is no different. Village walks through Ladakh, Kumaon and Sikkim are beautiful, authentic and allow visitors…

Travel Journaling: 4 Things to Bring to Help Record Your Trip

Image
When you are traveling or on vacation, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the excitement of everything that's happening in the moment. However, once the trip is over you will wish that you recorded more of what happened, because it can be hard to remember every detail after the trip. There are several items you can bring with you on a vacation to ensure that you remember as much of it as possible, even after it is over.

1) Journal

Though you might be able to remember places you visited and what you did, one of the most important things that people tend to forget is how they felt as they visited a place or viewed a famous piece of history. Having a journal will give you a place to not only to write down what it is that you did, but how you felt about it. Looking back on it years later, you'll be able to relive the same feelings by reflecting on your memories and what you wrote.

2) Pens and Pencils

It might seem obvious, but if you don't have a pen or a pencil you won…
