The Most Romantic Spots To Experience In Miami, Florida

Miami is a city we often associate with water sports, beach activities and partying. There is no way to deny the fact that this is a great hub for those looking for a great party but it is also a destination that offers so many for those interested in a romantic getaway. Every single one of the destinations below will be great. The Rusty Pelican Although many different things changed as time passed, you will still experience a view like no other. As you stay and overlook the water surrounded by twinkle lights you will feel more in love. You can get a stunning view of Brickell and the downtown area. The Key Biscayne landmark can only be described as being amorous. Matheson Hammock Park It is quite a shame to see that there are so many locals that still did not get to experience the perfect Matheson Hammock Park.

A week in Sicily

Due to its versatile landscapes and rich history, it is no wonder that Sicily captivates so many that travel there. Full of cultural treasures, sparkling seas and vast mountains there is so much to see and do. However, what if you only had a week to explore this region? Sicily has an area of 25,711 km², so it may be hard to explore the whole island in just a few days. We suggest it might be better to focus on one particular area, for example, you can choose to visit the west coast of Sicily, or devote yourselves exclusively to the Etna area or the Temples in Agrigento. Those wishing to choose the west coast will be able to see a lovely handful of things to fill up your time. The ideal starting point is the beautiful town of Marsala, then heading towards Trapani, while taking mandatory stops in Erice and Sav Vito Lo Capo, and then continuing northeast towards Palermo. Before arriving in the capital of Sicily, which can be visited rather summarily in a single day, you should spend some time in the ancient Segesta, in Scopello and Castellammare del Golfo. If you have some time after the whirlwind tour in the centre of Palermo, you can use it for a quick trip in Monreale. Alternatively, Marsala, which is just 13 km from the Trapani international airport, can be the base of a memorable journey to the south-east in the direction of Agrigento. Among the approximately 135 km separating the two cities, lie the beautiful Mazara del Vallo, the Archaeological Park of Selinunte, Castelvetrano, Sciacca and Porto...

Macau or Las Vegas – which is your best bet?

While they may both be famed for their bright lights and big casinos, in many ways Las Vegas and Macau couldn’t be more different. Las Vegas easily claims the title of the world’s favourite party town, while Macau has eclipsed Vegas in terms of profits, taking around five times as much out of the pockets of its gamers. Vegas welcomes everyone, with a massive range of shows and attractions, while Macau is a serious punter’s paradise, geared towards the high rollers. Even their favorite numbers are different, with Vegas favouring number 7, while Macau players showing superstition around the numbers 8 and 9. So which of these two gaming Meccas is your best bet? Let’s compare the two… Famously founded by playboy gangster Bugsy Siegel, Las Vegas is the party capital of the world. In fact it has such a reputation for fun and games that it has its own matra: ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’. Attracting over 40million visitors per year, Vegas has over 150 casinos, which took around $6.3bn between them in 2016. But that’s far from the full story; Las Vegas is an all round entertainment destination, as well as a gaming centre. You’ll also find some of the biggest shows on the famous strip, with international names like Celine Dion, taking up multi-year residencies for eye-watering sums. Vegas has more than half of the world’s top twenty biggest hotels, with some incredible architecture. You can visit the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids of Giza and the canals of Venice, all without leaving the city. Yet you’ll find rooms to suit every budget along with a massive range of food...
How To See Lava on Hawaii’s Big Island: Kilauea Volcano

How To See Lava on Hawaii’s Big Island: Kilauea Volcano

If you’re traveling to the Big Island of Hawaii, then you won’t want to miss the mesmerizing opportunity to see lava as it flows across a lava field and pours into the ocean. We weren’t really sure what to expect before our most recent trip, but seeing lava on the Big Island turned out to be one of our favorite things we did!     Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes on Earth, has been continuously erupting since 1983. Most often, the lava flow is slow and gentle; if you follow proper precautions and regulations, it’s safe and fascinating to get up-close to the show! That said, there are definitely a few tips and tricks to follow to ensure you make the most of seeing lava on the Big Island. Here’s what we learned from our latest lava adventure in Hawaii:   How To See Lava on the Big Island: Kilauea Volcano   There are numerous tours that will take you to see Kilauea’s lava flow, but it’s also easy to go the DIY-route. To start the adventure, head to the popular Kalapana Viewing Site, about 45-minutes from Hilo. Here, you’ll have the option to hike 9-miles roundtrip down a hot gravel road, or rent a somewhat uncomfortable bike from one of the many vendors in the parking lot. We opted to bike, which we highly recommend. You’ll find heaps of bike rental stations around the parking area, and it makes the trek to and from the lava viewing area much more manageable.      Insider Tip: Expect to pay $15 for a bike, a headlamp, a lock...

The Future of Luxury Travel

Within just the last few years, there has been an interesting shift in the luxury travel sector that could transform the landscape for the way in which people vacation in the near future. Previously, luxury travel has revolved around travelling to exotic destinations around the world or setting sail in a glamorous yacht, but now people are beginning to turn their attention to the skies for high-end holidaying.   Private Jet Chartering Soaring through the sky on a private jet may seem exclusively for the rich and famous, but this is no longer the case. This is due to the rise in private jet chartering, which has led to a decline in individuals owning their own jets. Similar to how Uber has revolutionised the roads and fewer people are owning automobiles, private jet chartering looks to be the future of luxury travel and it is much more affordable than you might think.   Uber for the Sky Many different companies are now offering private jet chartering. Some offer a subscription service where you pay a monthly fee and can fly wherever and whenever you’d like. If you are a regular flyer or make a lot of business trips, this could prove to be an extremely cost effective method of transportation. Alternatively, companies like Fly Victor provide an “on demand” service where you can pay a one-time fee for a flight to a destination of your choosing. In many cases, this service will also enable you to select the type of jet and tailor your trip to your needs.   The Experience The experience of flying in a private jet is...

Regardless of the type of vacation you take, you will want to look your best. There is nothing worse than flicking through your holiday snaps and feeling that you want to delete most of them because you do not look good in them. The key to avoiding this is to take your time and pack carefully. To help you to do this we have put together this practical packing guide. Provided you follow the tips outlined below you will have the right clothes with you, and they will not be wrinkled or crumpled. Give yourself enough time Our first tip is not to rush your packing. If you can, start putting together your holiday wardrobe at least a month before you are due to travel. Think about the activities you hope to enjoy while you are away and plan your packing accordingly. By far the best way to make sure that you do not forget anything is to make a comprehensive packing list. Try each outfit on before packing it As you pull each outfit together, try it on. That way you can make sure that everything matches and fits properly. Packing items of clothing that can easily be mixed and matched allows you to create multiple outfits. Taking this approach gives you more choice and helps you to be able to travel light. However, you need to make sure that you can wash, dry and possibly iron those items that you plan to wear more than once. Pack multi-functional clothing The more adaptable your holiday wardrobe is the better. It is always good to have a choice of...
