Travelling is one of the most exciting things a person can experience. Everybody dreams of travelling to a new city or even to a new country. If you are thinking of travelling, or if your job includes a lot of travel, then there are many things you need to keep in mind. Travelling can certainly be fun, but it can also cause stress especially during the preparation process. To have safe and peaceful travels, you should conduct a thorough plan.
It is important to consider all the important things before travelling as it will make your travel lighter and easier. In this article, we will discuss some of the important things you need to keep in mind when travelling.
Research The Place You Are Visiting
When travelling to a new place, you should conduct thorough research about the place, the people that live there, as well as its history and type of government they have. Through this, you should not have difficulties dealing with other people.
Make Sure You Carry Your Visa With You
A visa is very important, especially if you are travelling to a new country. There are certain countries that do not require a visa, but most of the countries today require you to apply for visa before you are allowed to travel. Some people are too excited to travel and end up leaving their visa at home by mistake. If you have a travel agent, you should check your visa with them. Your passport and visa should be with you anywhere you go.
A lot of people disregard the importance of travel insurance. If you regularly travel, then travel insurance can be very beneficial to you. Travel insurance protects you in so many ways, especially when untoward events take place during the course of your travel. If you are going to search online, you will find different types of travel insurance and each offers a specific type of coverage. Before you travel, you have to make sure you are highly knowledgeable about the types of services covered by your insurance. Check the insurance policy beforehand and pay particular attention with important details.
Money is one of the important factors when travelling. You should set your budget and make sure that it is aligned with the cost of living for the place you intend to visit. To ensure proper budgeting, you have to determine the cost of basic commodities like food and accommodation. If you have a credit or debit card, then it would be a bigger advantage if you carry them with you.
When travelling to a new place, you will be physically adjusting to the weather and the overall condition of the place. Some places require you to undergo vaccinations and present health certificates to keep you protected, as well as other people. Some diseases spread rapidly through air and droplets just like the AHN1 virus. This is actually one of the reasons why some governments ask you to present a health certificate to make sure that you are not a carrier.
Prepare All Your Things
This can be the most time consuming part of the trip. Some people make a mistake of bringing too many things when they travel. Travelling light is a good decision. Only bring the things you actually need, and be very careful in bringing your valuables with you. If you have travel insurance, then an insurance company may replace your belongings in case of any loss. However, not all insurance offers this type of coverage, so you should check it out with your insurance company.

Things To Consider If You’re A Regular Traveller

Crazy Weed in Canmore has an awesome menu. It’s not too big or too small, and fits on one page. The menu changes weekly based on what products are available, and what new creative insights inspire the chef. I went with a group of eight people. This was on purpose and for the sole reason we could try lots of different dishes. Ever go to Dim Sum with just two people? Not too interesting for the taste buds!
I’m sure all you foodies out there are curious to know what we ordered.
I find you can judge a restaurant based on detail, and if a restaurant knows how to make good fries, then most of the other menu is usually game. We split the house cut fries, which was served with aioli and homemade ketchup. The fries were crispy, and the ketchup was unique. It was slightly sweet, which contrasted the spicy chilli flavor.
We also ordered Vietnamese pork balls, which were juicy and tender. They were served with a mint pesto and chilli sauce. This is a super fun finger appetizer; you wrap the meat balls in the lettuce, drizzle with the sauces, and munch away!
The calamari was fresh and perfectly cooked. It was lightly dusted with panko bread crumbs, so the fresh sea food flavor could come through. It was served with a creamy aioli.
Our starters were excellent, and the atmosphere was enjoyable. So naturally, although full, we decided to split some entrees.
Crazy Weed is known for their curries, especially the seafood curry which has been their signature dish since the beginning. The portion is generous, full of mussels, scallops, prawns, and whatever fish they have on the market. The flavors are perfectly balance, so everything tastes harmonious, and nothing is overpowering. We also ordered the beef tenderloin, which was by far the best steak we have had. It was tender and juicy, with a light béarnaise sauce. The full rack of pork ribs served with Asian slaw and frites was also in demand. The ribs melt off the bone, and into your belly.
We were so full, but decided to kick the night off with dessert. We shared a crème brulee; the custard was the perfect consistency, the sugar on top was caramelized evenly, and the lemon and ginger flavors added the perfect hint of uniqueness.
What a memorable experience at Crazy Weed, my new favorite restaurant in Canmore. We spent the night, nursing our tummies, and resting at our vacation homes Canmore Alberta.

Getting off to the beaten path, camel rides in Golden Dunes, thrash ride on two-wheels, shopping from over-filled market, simply restful time on pleasant beaches and diverse color of the city- is all you envision before heading to a place for vacation. An elegant country such Dubai truly lends itself on the ground of adventures and activities and magnetically attracts visitors across worldwide. It has been a popular destination from the past five years. Here are some ideas and activity to make your trip both memorable and enjoyable. I would recommend them as my top 5 things to do in Dubai.
Dubai is the land of desert and when the Arabian Gulf water meets the desert, it becomes a dream destination for the visitors. The warm beaches and cool sea water is the most magnificent thing of Dubai. Beaches are the perfect location to spend a day apart from hectic life, some restful time, having drinks in hand and horseback ride. Stay till the eve and at night enjoys the beach parties. This is Dubai, calling you for fun.
2. Dune Bashing
Desert Safaris and Dune Bashing are one of the most worthy thing you can do in Dubai. A four-wheel drive safari offers you almost everything such as fun, thrill, adventure and sickness. J if you need some more fun then take a quad bike on rent and try sand skiing. This thrilling ride offers a complete package from morning to evening including your ride, barbecue etc.
3. Afternoon Tea Break at Burj al Arab
It’s my dream to take an afternoon tea in Burj al Arab but only registered guests can access the place as this hotel is beyond the budget of a common man. Still if you need to go inside for a tea then make sure to book in advance. The hotel is counted as one of the most elegant buildings around the world and offers the luxuries beyond expectations.
4. Camel Racing
Dubai is spot for desert and camel riding, and if you are seeking for a good adventure then there is nothing better than camel riding on hot dunes. Ask to your hotel staff to organize a visit to the camel race, but if you have a car on rent then you can avoid the company of other tourists. Just you need to drive out to the Nad al Sheba racetrack where you find the camel race track and racing camels. It’s one of the best places to visit and experience in Dubai.
5. Burj Khalifa
Going Dubai, and not enlisting the charm of Dubai Burj Khalifa visit in your schedule then it’s worthless. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world having 160 stories and height almost 828 meters. It stands in Old Town beside the Dubai Mall. The best way to feel the heights (to an observation deck at three-quarters of the way up) is by booking online for 100 dirhams. So, don’t miss the chance to visit such place.
Dubai is the city with full of diversities, here you would find almost everything you like to see. Ask to your holiday planner to book your tickets and this time you take a break in Dubai.

Holidays In China
When considering travelling to one of the world’s largest countries, it can be quite a daunting task to choose the destination that is right for you. China offers a fascinating blend of ancient cultures and modern comforts and this article looks at the best of both.
Perhaps nowhere else on earth is the contrast between age-old tradition and modern commercialism as vivid as it is in China. Huge ultra-modern cities such as Beijing and Shanghai sit alongside traditional peaceful villages and ever-changing landscapes which seem to roll forever into the distance. The world’s most populated country has so much to offer each tourist that it is wise to have a pre-prepared plan before venturing there, taking into account exactly what you want to get from your visit to this most fascinating of nations.
As one of the world’s earliest civilisations, the country of China can boast an incredibly long and complex history, its many ancient traditions still proudly on show today. Home to many iconic landmarks, perhaps no structure here is more iconic than the Great Wall. Stretching from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, the series of fortifications which make up this New Wonder of the World are a truly stunning sight and a marvel of ancient engineering. Ask any visitor here which attraction they would most like to see and the vast majority would choose the Great Wall. However, the fertile history of the country means there is so much more to satisfy the historically hungry – from the architectural majesty of the Forbidden City to the incredible sights awaiting you inside the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, the memories of this amazing nation which will surely last a lifetime.
Nowhere is the dichotomy between ancient and modern more prevalent than in the cities of Beijing and Shanghai. The nation’s capital for over eight hundred years, Beijing may be one of the oldest cities in the world and home to the Forbidden City but its importance to modern-day China is undoubted. The economic and political centre of the country, the city formerly known as Peking has embraced modern technology and 21st century life, offering a vibrant mix of old and new worlds to its many visitors. Similarly, the largest city in the country, Shanghai, is an intriguing split between ancient and modern, the Shanghai Museum and the Jade Buddha Temple nestled amongst the futuristic skyscrapers and designer shopping boutiques.
A Nation On The Rise
China has recently usurped Japan as the world’s second largest economy. It is a nation on the rise and a true global superpower. As its influence and power across the globe continues to rise, so too the interest in visiting this most fascinating and complex of countries will increase. For those wishing to experience a culture far removed from their own and to be immersed in thousands of years of fascinating history, the most populated nation on the planet is most definitely the place to go.

Arc de Triomphe
Every year, thousands of tourists flock to two of Europe’s most popular capital cities – Paris and London. The two destinations offer visitors two completely different cultures and environments. Each has their own unique sights and attractions to see. One thing that Paris and London does have in common is that both capitals have huge stone archways prominently featured. Paris has the Arc de Triomphe while London boasts the Marble Arch.
If you are trying to decide which city to visit on holiday, take a minute to compare the two different arches and in turn help learn a little bit more about your potential holiday choices.
Arc de Triomphe
Located at the end of the Champs-Élysées, a very popular and important roadway in Paris, the Arc de Triomphe was initially designed in 1806. Due to a series of setbacks, construction of the arch took nearly thirty years to complete and it was finally finished in 1836. Jean Chalgrin, the architect who designed the Arc de Triomphe designed the monument as a new take on classic Roman architecture.
Below the Arc lies another of Paris’ popular attractions, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Originally laid to rest in 1920, these remains were dedicated to the memory of the unidentified soldiers who died during The Great War. After World War II, the tomb was also officially dedicated to those lost in that conflict as well.
Designed in 1825 to be placed in front of the newly constructed Buckingham Palace, construction on the Marble Arch was completed in 1933. It sat there as the entry to the palace for nearly two decades until 1850-1851 when it was dismantled and moved to its present location near Speakers’ Corner in the Hyde Park area of London. Thanks to its prominent location getting to the Marble Arch is simple by both the Tube and bus travel.
Modeled after the Arch of Constantine in Rome, the Marble Arch was originally only able to be passed under by royalty and their royal guard. Since being moved in the middle of the 19th century, the Arch has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, with visitors coming from all over the world. It is currently situated on an island in the middle of a busy intersection – some experts expect that it will be eventually moved to a close location which will allow more access to the public.
No matter which city you decide to visit on your holiday, you are bound to find a number of different sights which you will never forget. Both Paris and London offer their own atmosphere and beauty, and both are sure to amaze you. While both were constructed during the same time period, both the Arc de Triomphe and the Marble Arch provide visitors with unique views into the different cultures.
Tim Baker is an experienced traveler and writer who has made numerous trips all over the world. One of Tim’s favorite experiences was traveling through Europe via bus, and of all the cities he’s visited, Paris and London are two of his favorite.

Motorbike Road Trip
Being able to plan a motorbike road trip means breaking down what you need for any journey duration, as well as being able to take the right kind of precautions when you’re on the road; as well as maintaining your bike before and during your trip, you need to work out your storage capacity and essentials, as well as what information will be essential if you do encounter problems; this means having the right documentation for your travel insurance and repairs if you need to make them.
In terms of how long a journey’s going to last, research distance and an estimated budget, thinking about changing fuel prices within a country or across different countries. Check to see whether you’ll need to take your bike onto a ferry during a trip overseas, and whether you’ll need extra storage for parts of your journey. Researching road surfaces, potential traffic problems, and weather reports for your journey will give you an advantage over taking risks when you travel.
It’s also important to properly prepare and maintain your bike on a trip. Before leaving, check your tyre pressure, and bring a monitor along with you to keep on checking your tyres during a trip. You also need to check your clutch and brakes, as well as all of your lights, your oils and fluid. Going into a garage for a full service is perhaps the best approach to take if you want to double check any problems. If you’re going for a long journey, consider testing out your bike and how much you’re going to carry through a day or weekend trip first.
Depending on how long you’re going for, work out what you can afford to pack; bungee nets, a side car, and rucksacks can be loaded up, although you need to be careful about what kind of touring suit you wear – check the weather of your destination in advance to see what leathers you’ll need for different temperatures. Bring a store of dry food, which should include energy bars, as well as a water flask. Having your important documents in a clear plastic wallet that you can get to easily while on your bike is also important.
You should carry copies of your passport, your motorbike license and any international driving permits, as well as copies of your travel insurance policy and specialist motorcycle insurance. A safe place to keep rolls of money and any credit cards is recommended, as is a small GPS that can be used to plot routes. If you have the space, a cheap laptop or a phone can be brought along for further route planning.
Make sure that you’re able to adjust for problems and repairs on the road. Check your oil regularly, have a tyre monitoring kit, and a tool kit with Allen wrenches and other essentials; keep paper maps as well as GPS ones if you have any issues with your technology. Investing in a two way communication link with your driving partner, if you have, will also save you from having to shout over to them.

Luxury Boutique Hotels
Laura Comben is a writer from Brighton. Her passions include art, photography and the grand City of London.
When hearing the word ‘Camden’, visitors usually first think of the eclectic and vibrant Camden Town, filled with bohemian vibes, vintage and alternative clothing and good ol’ British pubs. However, if this is not to your taste, London’s borough of Camden offers a wide variety of styles, atmospheres and clientele. The borough is bigger than first expected, stretching from Holborn and Bloomsbury in the south to Hampstead Heath in the north, with neighbouring areas including the City of Westminster and Islington to the east. If you are planning a trip either for pleasure or business, some of the best luxury hotels can be found along this vast area of London. Here are four of the best.
The Montague on the Gardens, 15 Montague Street
This four-star luxury hotel overlooks private, secluded gardens and boasts two restaurants, a high-end gym and two sun rooms. Rooms are clean, crisp and individually designed, with some offering beautiful marbled on-suites. All your needs are met when staying at the Montague as services include Bridal suites, shoeshine, dry cleaning and ironing, currency exchanging and babysitting services. The excellent location is a minute’s walk from the British Museum and close to Covent Garden, Oxford Street and the West End. After a long day, why not take a 20 minute walk to 121 Holborn to the restaurant and ping pong venue, Bounce? Unwind at the restaurant and bar and bounce ping pong all night at one of their bespoke tables.
The Kingsley by Thistle, Bloomsbury Way
This four-star hotel is located in the heart of Bloomsbury’s business district, which the hotel caters for with seven function rooms and six syndicate rooms for meetings and events. Like The Montague, The Kingsley is close to the West End, Oxford Street, the London Underground and the lush, green Bloomsbury Squares. Its 129 rooms range include deluxe, executive and junior suites, styles in The Kingsley’s signature blend of modern and Edwardian decor. Facilities include free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24 hour room service and a book service to commemorate its past residents Charles Kingsley and the Bloomsbury writers
Chancery Court Hotel, 125 High Holborn
This Edwardian five-star hotel dates back to 1914. Its stunning white stone exterior with masterly carved details invites guests into its lavish, spacious and glamorous rooms, award-winning spa and its prestigious Pearl Restaurant. For larger occasions, the Chancery offers conference and banqueting facilities. Other services include a 24 hour concierge service, valet parking, currency exchanges and a fully equipped fitness centre. The hotel is accessible to some of London’s best attractions including museums, the Royal Opera House and Covent Garden. The area of Holborn is known as business hub, filled with lawyers in sharp, pinstripe suits, financial experts and journalists.
Sanderson Hotel, 50 Berners Street
Situated in the heart of the West End, the Sanderson Hotel offers surreal and luxurious escapism from the bustle of the city. The 50’s building was transformed by Philippe Starck to give the hotel a clean, smart but slightly eccentric edge. Instead of walls, rooms are designed with floor to ceiling glass panels which are then covered with sheer curtains to diffuse just the right amount of light into the room for an ambient atmosphere. The hotel offers its own Malaysian restaurant – Suka, two bars, a billiard room, a gym and a spa. They also have a tranquil courtyard garden to unwind and also have conference and meeting facilities.
The Royal Courts of Justice are imposing enough to terrify even the completely innocent. Legend has it that the courts contain 1,000 rooms and three and a half miles of corridors.
Being the centre of London’s squadron of lawyers. Holborn is home to Gray’s Inn, Lincoln’s Inn and loads of legal eagles with pinstripe suits and expensive briefcases.
Throngs of lawyers, financial high-fliers spilling over from the City and a few journalist stragglers left over from the media empire days of Fleet Street.
Holborn started out as an empty field beside the City. When a tollgate was installed, a tiny village grew up around it. By the 19th century, Holborn was poverty-ridden like much of the rest of East London. Although the area was bombed during the second world war, much of the architecture and important buildings escaped significant damage.
Pub quiz facts:
18th-century London was no stranger to prostitution, but Holborn was famous for a slightly different kind – it was the location of London’s most famous gay brothel. Mother Clap’s molly house was raided in 1726 and she was sent to the stocks for aiding in sodomy.
Famous writers who have lived in Holborn include Charles Dickens and Zadie Smith.
When it’s hot:
Holborn has little bits of green space, but if you’re there during lunch hour you might have to fight the lawyers for a spot on the grass.
When it’s not:
Members of the public are allowed in the courtooms of the Royal Courts of Justice, as long as they promise to behave themselves.

Three Awesome Ski Resorts in the Canadian Rockies
Image Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel
Some people think that heaven is to be found on the golden beaches and sandy shores of the Caribbean. But for others, it is the winter adventures, powdery snow and downhill drops that spell paradise. From Austria to New Zealand, hundreds of cities around the world offer world-class ski resorts, but today we will be talking about three of the best resorts in the Rocky Mountains. Canada’s mountainous terrain is home to some of the most popular skiing and snowboarding slopes in the world. But it is not only skiers that can enjoy these wonderful places.
PANORAMA MOUNTAIN VILLAGE
Panorama Mountain Village is a self-contained ski in/ski out resort situated in the Purcell Range, in the western part of the Rocky Mountains of Canada.

In terms of size Panorama Mountain Village is one of the largest winter tourist destinations and it benefits from 11.52 square kilometers of skiing areas. Moreover it is number five on the list of vertical drop areas. Last but not least it is equipped with wonderful condos, bars and restaurants. The only thing, which will not excite ski lovers, is the quantity of snowfall, but developers are trying to take advantage of every inch of snow.
KICKING HORSE RESORT, BRITISH COLUMBIA
The Kicking Horse Resort is one of the newest ski resorts in British Columbia, with an awesome name that comes from the nearby Kicking Horse River. It is on this river that intrepid travelers can enjoy white water rafting. Nevertheless, it is the slopes that visitors are more interested about. With 11.1 square kilometers of wonderful skiable terrain and powdery snow, it is a snowboarder’s paradise. To add even more to the visitor’s delight, they can relax and spend wonderful moments at the Bear Paw Lodge, the nearby self catering Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The future looks bright for this wonderful ski resort, as new ski lifts and chairlifts, gradually added are expected to expand the skiable area by another 8 square kilometers.
BIG WHITE SKI RESORT
Situated in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, on the Big White Mountain, is the ski resort with the same name. In terms of skiable area, Big White does not disappoint. With 118 designated trails and 27 unnamed trails suitable for both beginners and experts, it is the perfect destination for any type of traveler. A must see in this resort is the Gem Lake, situated on the western side of the mountain. This place offers the largest single-lift vertical drop and there is also a fully equipped lodge in the area. If you are looking for something different, you can also visit the largest tubing park in North America called the Mega Snow Coaster and take a snowmobile tour or ice skate. In terms o accommodations, there are many condo hotels and vacation homes which are great for families and larger groups.
Forget about the tropical destinations and prepare for a snowy adventure. There is no ignoring the call of the Rocky Mountains and its awaiting for enthusiastic skiers.

Cape Town should be at the peak of a travellers must see list of places across the globe. This iconic city is arguably the most magnificent and diverse in South Africa. With its unique and spectacular mountain range, and impeccable coastline, it is any explorers dream. For backpackers it is a top-notch spot to go to on a detailed budget, as there are quite frankly many places to go and see for next to nothing prices.
Cape of Good Hope
This is a must, not only to tell your friends and family that you’ve been to the end of Africa (most south westerly point of the continent) but also to actually experience the incredible views that the continents tip has on offer! Home to more than 250 different species of bird, this landmark allows you to see for miles and miles up and down to lands defined coastline. Be careful though, the winds from the merging Atlantic and Indian Oceans can quite easily knock you off your feet! If lucky enough you may run into the odd zebra and ostrich (very common in this neck of the woods). For only 50 or some ZAR (£3) you can enter this national park and explore for yourself the countries true inner beauty.
Where else would you find a mountain shaped like a table? Again for less than 20 English pounds catch the cable car for an easy ride up or for free face the challenge of hiking the mountain by foot to see the whole of Cape Town for yourself. Be sure to head up there on a clear sunny day to truly take in the breath taking views, and to take in the scientific reason to why Cape Town has a table shaped mountain!!
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens
Situated at the foot of the easterly slopes of Table Mountain, this cultivated garden inhabits an extensive range of birds and fauna. You could quite easily spend a day here visiting the gardens, either for a casual stroll or for a challenging hike deep in to the hillside. Take a packed lunch or visit the affordable and bubbly tearoom and restaurant. The gardens regularly play host to concerts so be sure to keep an eye out for up and coming performing dates.
This working harbor is the historic heart of Cape Town. With a stunning backdrop of the mountain range (so perfect it looks photo shopped!) it makes perfect setting for a lighthearted wander through the stylish shops, exquisite food restaurants and explore in greater detail all the one off excursions that are on offer in and around the Cape.
Head to the Beach
Cape Town is notorious for its endless option of picturesque beaches. For a relaxed atmosphere with the company of African penguins head to Boulders Beach, this beauty allows you to get close to the little nippers while soaking up the sun and taking a refreshing dip. Kalk bay is ideal for mixing tanning time with cocktail sipping; make sure you drop by at Cape de Cuba for a cheap beverage! Everywhere you look there is a stunning beach accompanied with ample space to indulge and chillax. If affordable, hire a car (rent a cheapie) and drive along Chapman’s peak – simply breathtaking!
