Top Travel Ideas for Easter Holidays 2018

0

The holiday season behind us has left us nostalgic for the laid-back time spent with our friends and families or travelling. Luckily, Easter is approaching. This is the right time to start planning a holiday. Regardless of whether you are an Aussie looking for a local retreat, or you are flying in from overseas, there are a couple of places you probably don’t want to miss this season.

Gold Coast, QLD

The Gold Coast region is a perfect destination for a sunny holiday, with its temperate climate and some 245 days of sunshine a year. Since you will be visiting mid-autumn, you probably do not have to worry about rain, but it does not hurt to check. The sunny days and the warm nights will give you a chance to enjoy any water-related outdoor activities, beaches and nightlife. Even though this may sound like an obvious choice, perhaps you want to give it try, since scientists fear that potentially deadly Irukandji jellyfish could move further south in the years to come and affect the Gold Coast beaches.

To put gloomy predictions to the side and continue planning a fun holiday, for those who are looking for something more than beautiful beaches, Gold Coast has a lot to offer. If you want to escape the areas packed with tourists, you can visit one of its national parks and enjoy the wonders of nature through many offered guided tours. There are plenty of places you can visit within a one-hour drive, depending on where you are staying. You will get a chance to enjoy rainforests, wildlife, waterfalls, mountains and overall sceneries you have never seen before.

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne is a city famous for its diversity in every sense.  There is something for everyone, culture, entertainment, food, nightlife, beaches, wildlife etc. This is a perfect destination for a city break.  Again, if you want to escape the busy streets and crowded restaurants as much as you can, there are quite a few walking trails from and nearby the city. For example, the Capital City trail can take you on a walk through Royal Park which is a true oasis within this metropole. Furthermore, there is the Dights Falls Loop Trail which will give you an opportunity to see the beautiful Yarra Bend Park, and, just as the one above, will provide a peaceful afternoon.

If you are interested in staying out of the city entirely, then you may want to consider visiting Dandenong Ranges on Mt. Dandenong and enjoy one of its villages, amazing walking trails, and attractions.

The Top End, NT

This is the second northernmost region in Australia and it accommodates the territory’s capital, Darwin. However, one could safely say that most people do not visit the Top End for a city break. As pretty much anywhere else in Australia, the wildlife in this region is fascinating. This is where you can come to see crocodiles, dugongs, sawfish, and bull sharks.

Kakadu National Park, on its own, could provide a head-spinning experience. Perhaps due to its size, you will come across different terrains and landscapes. You can enjoy rock formations, cliffs, and waterfalls. On the other hand, you can have the wetlands’ airboat experience and see the crocodiles, turtles, birds and many other animals. You can also look into its history through Aboriginal art.

Speaking of Aboriginal art, the best place to find out more about these intriguing tribes is by visiting the Arnhem Land. The visit will give you an insight into the history of Aboriginal people, as well as their lives today. You can do all of that while spending time in the unspoiled nature.

Perth, WA

Perth is famous for being relaxed and it has its wide streets and sunny beaches to add to the picture. This is also why it is very convenient for walking tours. Some of the attractions the city features is the Swan River, pristine beaches, Kings Park and Fremantle, a town which is a living museum depicting a 19th– century port.

You may find Perth to be quieter than other Capitals in Australia, however, it is still a city. If you are looking for something more relaxing or adventures, there are plenty of opportunities for walking holidays in the area. The Eagle View Walk is one of the trails you could do in a day and it is quite close to Perth. Also, one of the world’s longest walking trails, The Bibbulmun Track, passes next to the City. The trail offers a great diversity over a stretch of 1000km and is divided into several sections.

It is worth mentioning that each of the places offers a variety of accommodation options, ranging from serviced rooms, hostels and B’n’Bs to some of the most luxurious resorts. Pretty much anywhere you go, you will have an access to Wi-Fi within the accommodation. This is good to know as you may decide to do some work remotely over the holidays or extend your stay.

Travel Health: Dealing With Altitude Sickness

0


Altitude sickness, also called acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when you rapidly travel to a high altitude. Usually, this happens whenever you go above 8,000 feet.

Even those who have never suffered from AMS can experience it, and it doesn’t depend on age, sex or physical fitness. There are 3 distinctive types of AMS, including:

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) – This is the mildest form and is very common with symptoms resembling those of a person recovering from a hangover- headache, muscle pains, dizziness and nausea.

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) – This is a situation where fluid builds up in the lungs. It is a very dangerous situation that could prove fatal if left unattended.

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) – This is the most severe case of AMS, which occurs when you get fluid in the brain. If you ever have this type, it should be wise to seek immediate medical attention. This is because it is life-threatening and should be dealt with instantly.

Symptoms

If you ever get this condition, these are the symptoms to look out for:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • A headache
  • Lethargy and energy loss
  • Vomiting
  • Feeling breathless
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of appetite

You are likely to experience these symptoms 12-24 hours upon getting to a higher point, but they tend to get better in a few days as you get accustomed to the change in altitude. However, if you are suffering from more than a moderate case, you will not feel better even after using over-the-counter medication. Instead, the symptoms only get worse, and you will start experiencing shortness of breath and lethargy. Other symptoms that might follow include:

  • Loss of coordination
  • Tightness in your chest
  • A splitting headache that doesn’t clear with medication

With HAPE and HACE, you might also develop a cough that comes with a pink or white frothing, and it can eventually lead to a coma.

How to Handle Altitude Sickness

To avoid suffering from this condition, these are the things to do:

Gradual Acclimatization

Always listen to your body so that you can distinguish symptoms of oxygen deficiency. Each person gets affected differently, and this depends on his or her lung capacity. For those with larger lungs, it will be easier to climb. However, always remember that upon reaching the 3,000 meters mark above sea level, you should only go 300-500 meters every day and take a one-day break after 1,000 meters.

Chewing Coca

These leaves are native to the South American Indians and have been chewed for ages. This plant is only legal in Peru, Bolivia and some parts of Argentina. It is known to be naturally analgesic that helps relieve lethargy, give a clear mental state and aid in oxygen circulation in the blood. If you cannot stand its taste, infuse its leaves in drinking water, use them as spices while preparing food or make tea with them. They have been used by people who do strenuous jobs or those taking high altitude treks.

Diet and Water

While climbing, you should eat carbohydrate-rich foods, especially sugars. Your perfect choice is chocolate as it has enough sugar to give you the required energy. Stay away from alcohol as it will only make your symptoms worse. One more important thing is staying hydrated; ensure you have plenty of water and are well hydrated throughout your journey. At higher altitudes, your body will likely not tell you that you are thirsty, which is why you need to keep drinking water even if you don’t feel like it to avoid the risk of dehydration.

Sorojchi Pills

Taking these pills is the most effective way of dealing with AMS. They are similar to aspirin and contain caffeine and acetylsalicylic acid. These help in diluting your blood to ensure the body remains oxidised and are in a position to adapt to the surrounding. You should take them 8 hours before starting your ascent and every 8 hours afterwards.

If after following all the above you still suffer from AMS, consider the following:

  • Take OTC pain medication
  • Move to lower ground
  • Wait it out
  • Call a physician

Sydney is not the capital of Australia, but one of its most important cities. If you are organizing a trip to Australia you can not miss this post where we recommend the best places to visit in Sydney and what to do in the city.

5 Hidden Treasures of New York

0


New York is undoubtedly one of the world’s most significant tourist destinations, and much like any hotspot, it has countless “must see” attractions that everyone knows. However, although these landmarks deserve all of the attention that they get, sometimes it feels better to discover something a little out of the ordinary.

image source: here

New York, being the expansive metropolis that it is, still has a plethora of unique and interesting spots that are yet to be discovered by the rest of the world. For every towering skyscraper, there’s a quirky museum or a hidden bar just waiting to be found. Therefore, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 hidden treasures in New York, so that you too can enjoy some of the city’s most charming secrets.

1 – Mmuseumm

Mmuseumm is the well hidden modern history museum created by entrepreneur Alex Kalman. Located in a converted freight elevator down an alley in Chinatown, the eclectic selection of exhibits that occupy MMuseumm’s walls make it one of the most uniquely intriguing places to visit in the city, as well as a polar opposite to the more traditional museums that call New York their home. Planning ahead is advised as it’s only open Thursday through Sunday, but if you can get there, it’s definitely worth a visit.

2 – Fragment of the Berlin Wall

Although not many are aware of this, there is in fact 5 panels of the iconic Berlin Wall situated inside the lobby of 520 Madison avenue, just a short walk from the Museum of Modern Art. Segments of the legendary wall can be found in various locations all over the world, but this particular slab is one of largest sections that has been kept intact, thus making it particularly significant.

3 – City Hall Station

Originally opened as part of the cities inaugural subway line in 1904, the City Hall station is now inoperative, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t witness its spellbinding beauty. Closing in 1945, the stations distinctive architecture and design is an absolute treat that can only truly be appreciated in the flesh, however, doing so can be difficult. There are guided tours provided by the New York Transit Museum, but these are infrequent, so if you want to make this visit a part of your trip then it would be advisable to book in advance.

4 – Staten Island Boat Graveyard

If you’re willing to go a bit further afield, then Staten Island’s Boat Graveyard is one of the most undeniably interesting places in all of New York. This Salvage Yard is home to a mass of decommissioned ships, many of which hold significant historical importance. Whether you’re a ship enthusiast or you’re just looking for a truly unique experience, the Boat Graveyard is undoubtedly one of the eeriest yet most powerful sights that the city has to offer.

5 – PDT (Please Don’t Tell)

PDT is one of many hidden speakeasies that can be found around New York City. Now infamous for it’s attempts to stay hidden, the bar is located behind a vintage telephone booth in Crif Dogs, a hot dog restaurant in the East Village. The atmosphere in PDT really makes it feel like you’re part of an exclusive group, predominantly thanks to its smaller size, ‘hidden’ entrance, and traditional 1920’s style.

If this has got you planning your next trip to New York, then you’ll want to check out the competition by  tombola bingo, to be in with a chance of winning a trip to Big Apple. You’ll be able to put visit our very own hidden treasures yourself!

Travelling safe this winter

0


With just over a week until Christmas day, we should be coming towards the end of our shopping and looking forward to spending time with family and friends. Not to mention a glass of our favourite tipple and a mince pie or two. For the majority of us, Christmas is about spending time with family and friends and it’s great if we can jump in a taxi or even make the journey on foot to spend time with them. Not everyone has this bonus though and making the long car journeys to visit loved ones can be rather stressful, especially over the festive period.

With millions of people travelling all over the country to spend the holiday season with family and friends, it can only mean busy roads and potentially bad driving conditions.

It’s essential that for any of us travelling over the Christmas period, we stay as safe as possible on the roads. Winter weather conditions and an increase of travelling vehicles means we need to be extra cautious. To help you travel safe this winter, we’ve created a quick post about some of the checks you should carry out on your vehicle.

Check your tyres

With an increased risk of rain, ice and snow the quality of your vehicle’s tyres is paramount. Whether it be a long or short journey, you should regularly check the appearance and pressure of your tyres. Driving with damaged or bald tyres is illegal and not only do you run this risk of being stopped by the police; you’re also at a higher risk of losing control of the vehicle.

Driving with damaged tyres just isn’t worth the risk, so if you feel like you tyres are starting to look a bit worn, it’s best to have them replaced. Tyres range in price and can be found online from websites such as www.tyreplus.co.uk but it’s worth having a shop around.

Top up on screen wash

Checking the amount of screen wash in your vehicle seems obvious but it’s something many of us forget about. Bad weather conditions can sometimes lead to harsher visibility on the roads, so keeping your windscreen clear at all times is really important. Not having the correct amount of screen wash in your vehicle means that the only way you’ll be able to see out of your windscreen, is if it’s raining. No rain means reduced visibility as the journey goes on which could potentially lead to a collision.

Be prepared

Although the risk of breaking down is very slim, it’s best to be prepared just in case. The last thing you want is to be stuck on the hard shoulder of a motorway in cold weather conditions, wearing only a few layers. To be on the safe side it’s a good idea to keep a few blankets and coats in the boot of your car just in case you do find yourself waiting for help to arrive.

If you’re travelling with children then it may also be a good idea to pack a bag of snacks and things to do. Doing this will keep them occupied on the journey and you’re even prepared in the event of a break down.

It’s important to carry out the relevant checks on your vehicle before setting off on your journey. Christmas is nearly upon us so make the most of it and most importantly, stay safe!

10 Cool places to visit in San Diego

0


Planning a trip to San Diego and want to know some of the best places to visit?

If so, you’ll find the must-visit attractions from the most beautiful beaches to the best places for views and photographs in this guide. So, it’s time to start searching for one of the best San Diego luxury homes to suit your interests and start planning your trip now.

1# La Jolla

San Diego has a few beaches, but few are better than La Jolla, or ‘the jewel’ in English. The cliffs are behind the beach with the warm waters lapping against the sand making one of the prettiest spots in the city. Lots of upscale restaurants are near the beach with a selection of fresh seafood and cold beer or wine. Popular activities include surfing, cycling and kayaking.

2# Balboa Park

Looking for a scenic spot to relax for a few hours or to try out your new camera? Head down to Balboa Park. Trees and gardens surround the buildings along with a few fountains. A total of eight gardens make up the park and a further 15 museums are inside along with cycle paths, a carousel and the San Diego Zoo. Most people will spend at least an hour or two at Balboa Park, which makes an ideal day out for families.

3# San Diego Zoo

San Diego Zoo first opened more than 100 years ago. Thousands of animals live in enclosures that closely mimic their natural habitats. Visitors can see giant pandas, koala bears and the rare albino constrictors. The adjoining botanical garden is also worth exploring for the collection of more than 700,000 endemic and exotic plants.

4# Cabrillo National Monument

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo goes down in history as the first European explorer to sail along the coast of California. The monument itself is located 16 kilometres (10 miles) from San Diego at Point Loma. But, making the long journey is worthwhile for the spectacular views. On a clear day, there are good views of San Diego in the distance and Coronado. You can also hike along the trails such as Bayside Trail to get down to the sea. If you’re in the city, visiting the monument is a must. Most tourists rate this as the best view in San Diego. Expect to pay $10 if you drive and $5 admission for people on foot.

5# Sunset Cliffs

The Sunset Cliffs, as the name suggests, is San Diego’s best location to watch the sunset. Located near the Cabrillo Monument, the cliffs extended for almost 3 kilometres with a trail nearby to stroll along. Most visitors come and see the monument in the early evening just for the sunset. Others come earlier in the afternoon and spend the rest of the day at one of the secluded beaches nearby. If you do want to visit for the sunset, a top tip is to try to come during the weekdays. Locals always come on weekends making it feel very crowded.

6# La Jolla Cove

Near La Jolla Beach is the picturesque Jolla Cove. The beach may not be the best, but that’s not the reason people come. La Jolla Cove’s main attraction are the clear waters, an abundance of marine life and the endless opportunities for snorkelling. The area is ecologically protected, and it’s not uncommon for sea lions to swim near the rocks. Admission is free, and the area is open 24 hours every day. Parking and changing facilities are available. Just beware that because the cove is small, it can get busy very quickly.

7# Potato Chip Rock

Looking for a workout or a challenge on your trip to San Diego? If you answered yes, check out Potato Chip Rock. A tough uphill trail leads you through the hills as you walk towards the rock at the top. Make the effort and you’ll have fantastic views of San Diego. A favourite activity with tourists is to have their photograph taken next to the rock. As you can imagine, this can cause congestion near the top during peak hours.

8# SeaWorld San Diego

As with most destinations in the United States, San Diego has its own theme park, SeaWorld. Inside the giant complex, you’ll find a total of 26 different habitats with turtles, sharks and dolphins among others. There are 15 roller-coasters too providing fun for you and the family. Depending on what time of the day you visit, you may be able to catch one of the 20 different shows.

9# Blacks Beach

Blacks Beach may not be for everyone. For a start, it’s quite secluded, and you need to make a lot of effort to get there. But the biggest reason you may or may not want to visit is that Blacks Beach is San Diego’s famous nudist beach. If you’re up for a bit of sunbathing in a clothing-optional environment to get rid of those tan lines, this will be the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

10# Coronado Island

Coronado Island is a small strip of land that stretches between the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay. The island, that’s not an island but rather a peninsula, has a little downtown area with a few hotels and a relaxed atmosphere. Some of the bars have the best views of the Pacific, and you’ll see a fraction of the tourists compared to other beaches in the area.

The Hottest Spots in San Diego

Regardless of if you’re here to spend a few days on the beach, hike along the trails or visit the zoo and SeaWorld, San Diego is sure to make an excellent destination for any holiday you’re looking for.

5 Things You Shouldn’t Miss In Sydney

0


Australia is full of really cool places to visit. You could almost fly into one of the cities without a real travel plan laid out, start exploring, and still have an amazing vacation. But it’s generally a good idea to at least have some ideas in mind, particularly as concerns the top cities. This site has posted previously about the joys of Melbourne, and in this piece we’ll be turning our attention toward probably the only other Australian city as famous: Sydney, the capital of New South Wales and host city for the 2000 Olympic Games.

In any city this big and famous, and in this interesting a place, there’s enough to do to make your head spin. But to help narrow things down and hopefully show a diverse range of activity, we’re highlighting five things you really shouldn’t miss if you spend time there.

1. The Beaches

Sydney is known for its beaches, and it’s not all about Bondi Beach (which is probably the most famous of the bunch). As another travel writer put it, this city has a beach for everyone, whether you’re looking for a crowded cultural experience, a place to try your hand at surfing, or more secluded beauty.

Manly Beach is a great option if you’re looking for something visually impressive, Bondi is the place to go for the classic Sydney experience, and Bronte is a nice option if you’d like a little bit of a more relaxing time out. But the overall point is to make sure you set time aside to visit a beach or two, because Sydney is right up there with Rio de Janeiro as far as cities where beaches are the main attractions.

2. The Rocks

The Rocks is not a single attraction, but rather a neighbourhood in the city, and effectively Sydney’s “old town.” Quaint, old-fashioned, and historic, it’s just a very pleasant place to wander.

There are famous old pubs, buildings that hail from British settlements in the 1800s, and beautiful views of the water and some of the city’s best sights. You can find specific recommendations of establishments to check out at The Rocks, but we’d recommend simply exploring loosely.

3. The Harbour Bridge

Aside from the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is perhaps the city’s most famous landmark, and it’s actually quite striking. It extends from quite close to the Opera House out over the harbour and far enough that it actually holds the title of world’s largest steel arch bridge.

You can walk or drive across the bridge just for the experience and the views of the surrounding city and waters. But the real way to experience it is through the “BridgeClimb,” which allows you to actually trek up the arches. It’s a little bit daunting if you have a problem with heights, of course, but otherwise it’s a fantastic and beautiful adventure, and something you’ll be glad to say you did after the fact.

4. The Star

This is the biggest casino in Sydney, and not something we might ordinarily recommend. In-person casinos in generally are a bit out of vogue, thanks to all the alternative options people now enjoy.

Live dealer games online offer players the excitement and atmosphere of a real establishment from the comfort of their own homes. And with virtual reality emerging, that sense of physical presence in online games is only going to increase. But certain big cities in the world still have worthwhile casinos, and The Star is a very classy establishment. It’s not overly gaudy or ridiculous, but rather tasteful and attractive, with a focus on keeping you entertained through food, drink, and games. As city casino attractions go, it’s actually fairly unique.

5. Momofuku Seiobo

Recommending a single restaurant among a city’s top attractions isn’t always particularly fair or instructive, but we’ll make an exception for Sydney.

This is one of the more famous restaurants in this entire part of the world, run by a creative chef who fuses Asian traditions with his own Caribbean roots. Momofuku Seiobo is certainly a little bit fancy and expensive, but it truly is an attraction rather than just a restaurant or meal.

Why Fall Isn’t All About Leaves Changing Colors – A Guide to Seeing the Best Wildlife

0


When we think of fall, we almost always think about the beautiful colors that dot the landscape. It’s incredibly beautiful, to be sure, but that’s not all there is to this time of year.

When the leaves fall and the air gets crisp, you have the chance to get up-close and personal with wildlife that remains fairly secluded during other months of the year. From bull elk to bighorn sheep, the opportunities for viewing wildlife are nearly unmatched.

The key is getting to the places where wildlife viewing is at its best. Let’s take a look at a few of the best places to do just that this fall across the American West.

Glacier National Park

Located in the extreme northwest corner of Montana, Glacier is a bucket-list park for anyone who loves the outdoors. For those who love wildlife and an incredible landscape, you can’t afford to miss a visit here in the fall.

source: here

Glacier is home to one of the Lower 48’s largest grizzly bear populations – without the crowds of tourists that Yellowstone commands – in addition to elk and mountain goats.

Fall in Glacier means very chilly weather though, so you need to be prepared for a random snowstorm. Hiking through the park is unpredictable as well, thanks to the weather, but if you’re experienced enough with the climate of the American West, you’ll be just fine.

Zion National Park

While they used to be scarce, bald eagles are now plentiful out West. Seeing one of these majestic birds is a privilege.

source: here

At Zion National Park, bald eagles use the park as a place to winter over. In the late fall, you’ll likely be able to spot them moving into their winter nests. Zion is home to Rocky Mountain Goats, bighorn sheep, and mule deer, too, so you’ll see plenty of other animals aside from the bald eagle.

Katmai National Park

If bears are on your list of must-see wildlife, then Katami National Park is a place you can’t afford to not visit.

source:here

The park is home to over 2,200 brown bears, and in the fall they’re getting ready for hibernation. This means a lot of eating – and a lot of opportunity to see one of North America’s most majestic animals.

Rocky Mountain National Park

If high altitude doesn’t concern you, then a visit to rocky mountain national park rv rental is a great way to get up close to wildlife without going too far away from the accoutrements of civilization.

The park is home to elk, bears, mountain lions, moose, and deer. The best part though, is that during the fall the elk and deer are especially active.

In Moraine Park – a section of RMNP – multiple pullouts along the road exist solely for people to stop and observe the elk that so often congregate there. Colorado’s elk herds are among the largest in the country, and their moose herds are fairly healthy as well. Your chances of seeing both of those animals is very high.

Fall is one of the best times of the year to get out and enjoy nature. The crisp air rejuvenates the soul, and seeing animals in the wild is an awe-inspiring experience. Don’t settle for other people’s pictures this fall – go out and get your own.
