The Best Accommodation For Your Dream Vacation

The Best Accommodation For Your Dream Vacation

For many people, vacation time is the most valued and most important time of the year. The reason is simple: Those will be the weeks in a year where people will unwind and relax, where they want to get rid of all the stress and have a couple or more weeks of the best time of the entire year.

Because those few weeks of vacation per year are so important for most, finding the right accommodation to have a fantastic vacation certainly deserves special attention. You do not want to look forward to those weeks off work, expecting a great time at the beach – just to get bitterly disappointed once you arrive at your holiday destination because the place you will be staying at is anything but what you expected. On the other hand, disappointment can easily be avoided if you find great accommodation that will surpass all your expectations. Only then your vacation will be a blast for anyone without any worries and long faces.

Mistake #1: Choosing Holiday Accommodation Which Is Too Small For Your Family

This mistake is often made and the reason is frequently a false sense of trying to save some money. If a family of six chooses a tiny apartment that is only suitable for 4 people, yes, it might shave $200 or so off from your total, but at the expense that the entire vacation might get really uncomfortable for anyone. If you need to set-up two emergency beds for the other family members this can hardly be considered a relaxed vacation, can’t it? Then it would be rather smart just to pay those couple of hundred bucks more but get a roomy and better place instead. You don’t want to see crouchy and cranky faces in those two valuable weeks due to not enough space!

Mistake #2: Location, Location, Location

Similar as with mistake #1, people can often be fooled to get a “good deal” on an apartment or villa being their holiday accommodation where the big discount comes at a hefty price: The accommodation might be far away from any attraction and other places of interest. Your vacation destination might well be “at the beach”, but you won’t have a lot of fun if you get a place where you will have to drive a long time just to get there. Some shady accommodation providers can well hide this important fact in their advertising and you should always double-check why the price of your holiday apartment or villa is so suspiciously low. Then rather spend a few bucks more to get a place where you and your family can go anywhere easily, without the need for long walks or drives. Do you really want to play “chauffeur” for your children for the entire duration of your stay? Think about it…

Before you plan your vacation, you want to make sure that your accommodation suits anyone and that there are no hidden catches. Do not try to save money on the wrong end and risk to have your valuable vacation weeks spoiled because of wrong planning.

Europeans: Overcome the Obstacles and Visit Australia

Europeans: Overcome the Obstacles and Visit Australia

 

For a great many Europeans, a trip to Australia represents a once in a lifetime odyssey that, at some point in their lives, they plan to experience. It seems such a shame that so many potential visitors miss out on the chance to see this magnificent country purely because the opportunity never seems to manifest itself.

The main reason for the frustration is obviously the cost. There isn’t a cheap way to get to Australia from Europe, and with the ever-increasing fuel prices the chances are it will always prove prohibitive to a significant proportion of people. The continuing after-effects of a worldwide recession haven’t helped matters either.

In many cases, however, if people waited until they could definitely afford the trip, that day might never come. A holiday in Australia isn’t like any other, and with so many good reasons to visit places such as the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Uluru, there’s a good case to be made for just going for it and worrying about it later.

There’s also the time factor to consider. Because of the distance involved, and the subsequent jet-lag issues, there’s absolutely no point in travelling all that way for just a week. The sensible option is to try and make the most of the efforts incurred by staying for two or three weeks at least, but of course that can prove problematic.

More space, more comfort

A large proportion of Europeans will have visited several holiday destinations on the continent, such as those in Spain, Italy, France and Greece. Vacation flights are generally extremely cramped affairs, and this lack of space may have discouraged them from ever planning a trip down under, but the two flying experiences are totally different.

Even in economy class, you’ll find far more leg-room on a long-haul flight, as well as a wide range of entertainment options to help you pass the time. While almost everyone would rather not spend so many hours on a single flight, it has to be said that the airline companies do all they can to ensure their passengers are looked after very well.

While jet-lag can prove to be a difficult issue to deal with, especially when you have travelled to the other side of the globe, it can of course be overcome. Within a day or two of arriving in Australia, you will have adjusted accordingly, and you can start to make the most of this superb, once in a lifetime destination.

TRAVEL TO ASIA – EXCELLENT ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS IN JAPAN

TRAVEL TO ASIA – EXCELLENT ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS IN JAPAN

Adventure holidays are an increasingly popular travel choice for many different people   whether it’s young people looking for the next adrenaline rush or more seasoned travellers hoping to find something a bit different. Asia and Japan especially, make for excellent adventure holiday destinations.

If the usual sun, sea and sand holiday doesn’t do much for you anymore and if a city break seems like a fairly dull experience, then an adventure holiday may well be the best option for a great getaway. Usually incorporating fascinating and exotic destinations with some truly thrilling activities, there really is nothing not to love about adventure holidays. They are sure to be memorable for all the right reasons; a great way to meet new people and also cement existing friendships and relationships too. Adventure trips are available the world over, from safaris on the plains of Africa to witnessing the Northern Lights deep inside the Arctic Circle but no continent offers a greater diversity of locations than Asia.

ASIA
The world’s biggest continent has plenty to offer to holidaymakers and those in search of adventure will not be disappointed. Specially-tailored sites like Exodus offer amazing adventure experiences throughout this part of the world and there really is no shortage of choice. The Himalayas provide numerous challenges for intrepid travellers, including the chance to scale the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest. There are also jungles and rainforests aplenty from India, through Thailand and Cambodia and across the islands of Indonesia and Malaysia. The rural areas of China and Mongolia are also fascinating and occasional man-made structures offer adventures of their own, such as the awe-inspiring Great Wall. Japan is another world entirely and is understandably very attractive to adventure holiday seekers.

JAPAN
Comprising four main islands, Japan is a country that has captured the imagination of countless foreigners and inspired many to travel there over the years. It has a unique culture, a remarkable history and a landscape that offers surprising glimpses of wildness considering its small size and high population. By way of sites such as Exodus, adventurers may start in one of the incredibly vibrant cities, such as Tokyo or Osaka, but then move on to explore the mountains and forests that occupy much of the rest of the country. Temples and wildlife sanctuaries offer targets to reach in the rural areas and real natural landmarks, such as the volcanic Mount Fuji, present very exciting challenges. As if all this wasn’t tempting enough, Japan is also renowned for its forward-thinking and as such it is a chance to have experiences that may not become accessible to the rest of the world for some time.

In short, those in search of an adventure holiday won’t go far wrong in choosing Asia. Within this vast continent, Japan stands out as a true highlight and one that combines thrilling urban life with unparalleled countryside scenery and where the opportunity for a new adventure or unforgettable experience is only ever just around the corner.
