Do You Wait and Postpone Your Reservations

Comments off

One reason to call ahead for information on Chicago Hotels is to save money. Another reason is because you may not be able to find a room. This is especially true for certain times of the year. If you have a child that is graduating college in May of 2012, now is a good time to set up your reservation. My friend’s parents waited until February to try to get a room for their son’s graduation and they ended up having to spend the night forty minutes from the college. In addition, the hotel they stayed at did not have an internet connection so this created additional problems. When you call for a reservation, don’t be surprised if you are placed on hold. This is common and something that just needs to be dealt with using patience. Be specific about the type of room you are needing. Find out about the hours the restaurant is open and if they offer free transportation from the airport.

Learning Through Argentina Spanish Schools

Comments off

I have recently learned about student exchange programs. I had never heard of them until we had a girl come to our class from Brazil. She is a lot of fun! I love asking her about her culture and her family and how things are different. It is really excited. It makes me want to be a part of a student exchange program. I have been researching many different places, and I want to go to Argentina. I would become great at Spanish if I attended one of the Argentina Spanish schools. I don’t know anyone in Argentina, so it would be a great opportunity to build new relationships. Spanish it a great language, and it would be a lot of fun to learn more about a new culture in Argentina. I hope that I will be able to be an exchange student just like my new friend from Brazil is this year.

The Adventure of the Swiss Family Robinson, Without the Work

Comments off

The appeal of the Swiss Family Robinson’s experience only grows as we plunge deeper into a highly technological age. What parent wouldn’t want to tear his child away from the Xbox to see how he would manage on a primitive island in the South Pacific? What mother has not wanted to lure her daughter away from her iPhone for a couple of hours, or days, or weeks to actually work as part of the family unit in order to survive, like the characters in Wyss’ classic book.

Fortunately, you can snatch your children away from their wired worlds to experience nature in a pristine setting, much like the characters on the ’90s television series, which was filmed in Fiji. Not far from where the Swiss Family Robinson set up camp and carved a life out for themselves in the TV drama, you can take your son snorkeling or your daughter kayaking or simply go for a family swim on the famed white sands of Fiji’s beaches. Numerous resorts dot the 322 islands that comprise Fiji, but for a truly exceptional experience, having an island practically to yourselves would be hard to beat.

It’s possible through the accommodations at Dolphin Island, owned by Alex van Heeren as part of the famed Huka Retreats chain. Mr van Heeren himself used to use the island as a getaway for his children (no word on whether they’ve abandoned video games or iPhones permanently) and his current staff remains from those days to warmly welcome guests in the traditional hospitable style of Fiji.

The 13 acres of island, all for you and just a few other guests, wait to be enjoyed . You won’t have to build your own shelter, make your own clothes or ward off pesky intruders. The serene setting of Dolphin Island can provide a stark contrast to today’s plugged-in world. Wyss would approve, and you will, too.

Comments off

Despite the fact that a lot of my family members might not agree with me about investing in a car hire Valencia airport has available, I definitely feel good about having a vehicle available to us. They might not agree now, but I think they will thank me when they have something to look forward to. I know how important it is for me to really travel well. I just think that there are some things that I need to do in order to make myself happy. I feel like there are so many things that I know that will benefit us, and there are just so many things that my family is being ignorant about. Oh well. We will see who comes out as the victor! I am quite sure that it will be me, and that is quite okay with me when I can tell them, “I told you so!”

Caribbean Weather Wins

Comments off

If you’re packing for a holiday to the Caribbean, generally you will want to pack light. The Caribbean Islands are fortunate to have year round warmth, although they do have a rainy season starting in June. Most of the stormier weather tends to be in late summer. Thankfully, even during the stormy seasons the Caribbean is a great place to visit especially as most islands are not overly disrupted by the storms. Barbados holidays are ideal due to the fact that the weather patters rarely affect the island weather, and it is often very warm, sunny and inviting. All of the islands are very friendly, welcoming, and pleasurable. Even in rainy season the Caribbean spirit is very relaxed, and time is not of the essence. Peace and enjoyment of life are top priority. Exciting night life and outdoor activities give plenty of opportunities to let go and enjoy island life.

What I Thought of My Stay in Colwyn Bay

Comments off

When I last stayed at Colwyn Bay I stayed at the Bay View Bed and Breakfast Colwyn Bay. I saw this bed and breakfast accommodation advertised on the internet and it certainly looked very impressive. There were very good looking views from the bedrooms and dining areas and the accommodation facilities themselves looked very acceptable. One very attractive feature was the price. I don’t think for what they are offering that you can find a better value bed and breakfast in Colwyn Bay.

Colwyn Bay itself has a lot to offer and is very easy to get to as it is just off the motorway into North Wales. It also has a mainline railway station which receives trains directly from London, Manchester and Birmingham. The bed and breakfast accommodation is only about a five minute drive from the railway station and easily accessible by taxi or bus. Buses run through Colwyn Bay at least every fifteen minutes.
