Renting a Home Worked So Well for Us Compared to a Hotel

November 4th, 2014

My husband and I have seven children. They range in age from our daughter who is only 1 year old to our 17 year old son. This can often cause problems when we travel to a variety of different places. This is because most hotel rooms have only two beds and not enough space for our entire family. And we do not want our young children staying in a room alone where we can not supervise them. A friend told us that we should look into staying at the Greenstone Lodge in Bookabach because our entire family could stay there with no trouble at all. This sounded very appealing, so I booked a stay there immediately for our next trip.

The place has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, which was perfect for us, and children are allowed to stay there. The home could hold as many as 8 people, so we were set there. It is located on the side of a small hill, with amazing views. There are plenty of evergreen trees, flowers and a lake and mountain view that you can enjoy when looking out of the windows or sitting on the large wooden deck.

Because the home has a spacious kitchen, we brought all of the groceries we needed for our week’s stay. This helped us to save so much money. Had we stayed in a hotel, we would have been forced to eat out for every meal, which would have cost a considerable amount.

The kids were pleased about the wood deck located on the second story of the home. They spent many hours out there talking and playing with one another because they loved the views and the surroundings. My husband and I enjoyed that they could play on the deck safely and we would simply watch them out the window.


Holiday House Rentals in New Zealand

November 3rd, 2014

I would like to rent a house in New Zeland to go on holiday in with my family. I am going to have to look at this, in some detail, as I want to make sure that I rent a very nice house for my family to stay at while we are on holiday. My kids have never been to New Zealand before, and I think that they are in for a treat. I am looking at this one house right now, and it looks like the prices are pretty reasonable. More importantly, the house is located in the part of the country where my wife and I were talking about going.

I extremely excited about this trip, because it is something that I have wanted to do for a few years now, but I have not been able to do for a couple of different reasons. Not all of the reasons have been in effect at the same times. Continue reading »


Going to Think About a Trip to New Zealand

October 29th, 2014

Going to think about a trip to New Zealand, but it is not going to be an easy thing for me to do. Anne and I have been talking about it for a little while. About a year or so ago some friends of ours went over there. They like to hike a lot and they loved it over there. I think the web page of the place that they stayed at was called Greenstonelodge dot com. It looks like the same place to me at any rate and it is pretty much a big post card beautiful place. There must not be that many people in the area. All of the pictures look pretty much like totally unspoiled natural beauty. Continue reading »


Meg is Going to Blow All Her Money I Think

August 14th, 2014

I have been dating this girl for a long time and I always knew that her family had money, but she never told me about the trust fund until one day she came home with a new convertible. It was a really expensive car and I was amazed that she could afford it. Of course I am working and going to school and the best I am thinking of doing for spring break is one of those cheap spain holidays package. She started talking about going to Ibiza and spending three weeks renting a villa, the sort of place you would usually rent with a whole extended family. Continue reading »


We Saw a Genuine Side of Sicily

February 8th, 2014

When my friend and I went to Sicily for a five day holiday, we were pretty excited. We didn’t pick Sicily for any particular reason. We just looked at some travel sites, and we liked what we saw there. The prices for airfare and lodging were very affordable too, and it looked like there would be a lot of things there for us to do. After we got settled into our hotel room, we went to lunch. That is where we found out about a company that provides day excursions in sicily.

Since we had no itinerary to follow, this sounded perfect for us.


Even Cheap Holidays to Spain Can Be a Grand Adventure of Fun

February 6th, 2014

Spain is actually not that far away from where we live. I have been on holidays to other parts of the world much farther away. However, I have always wanted to visit Spain. I know I like the food. Of all the things my wife and I get to experience on our annual holidays, I remember the people and the food of the different places we visit the most. Some people remember a tourist attraction, or they remember something historical they learned. Our budget was a little less this year so cheap holidays to spain was what we were looking for.

The airfare was not going to be too bad since we did not have to cross an ocean to get there. Never having been there, I wanted to make sure we got a really nice hotel. I learned a long time ago that when you go on holiday, you want to get the best hotel you can afford. Continue reading »


Tibet is Peaceful and Quiet

January 14th, 2014

I have a few friends that wanted to go to Tibet because they were studying philosophy and religion in college and I thought that it was a good idea. I heard that it was a great place to go and I knew that it was going to be beautiful so I told them that I would go with them and that the verblyf in pretoria would be one of the best things to see while we were there. I knew that the Dali Lama would be there and that since it was his home that I might have a chance to see him but I would not be able to count on it because he does not come out all of the time.


We Really Liked Our Experience with Sunshine Coast Luxury Transfers

January 11th, 2014

Sunshine Coast Australia - 1920x1440 - 381580When we were in Australia visiting relatives I remember them having a van pick us up at the airport. I even remember the name of the company. It was sunshine coast luxury transfers. It was so much better than some other shuttling or taxi services I have seen in different parts of the world. It was me, my wife and our four children plus a whole lot of luggage. I paid so much for the extra bags that we could have brought a couple of more people with us. It might have been cheaper to just buy new clothes when we arrived! But, I digress.

What I really liked about the transfer service, as they call it, is how they showed up in a luxury van. I’m not talking about an old passenger van you might see back in the states. These were actually the same make as the highest end luxury German cars that wealthy folks own.


I Wore Pink, Not White

December 19th, 2013

Welcome to Toronto Service Limo | Limo To Niagara FallsLimo Service ...My toronto wedding limo was the easiest decision that I made on the day of my wedding. I knew a friend that had a great limo company and for my wedding gift, he told me that I could have their brand new limo for the day. I was going to invite him to my wedding so I thought that was a great gift instead of it being weird and paying him for what he wanted me to charge me. I knew that I was still going to have to tip the driver and that was okay as that was not from the driver, the wedding gift was the part of the limo itself.


Great Yoga Studios Located in Greece

October 16th, 2013

I recently moved to Greece – at least for the time being – in order to pursue the girl of my dreams, and I think that we are going to be able to make things work out. Anyway, since I am going to be living in Greece, I need to find a yoga studio to go to. I am very much used to doing yoga on a regular basis, and I want to keep up the routine while I am in greece. That is why I am looking for a location to do yoga in greece right now, and I want to find a place that will have very good instructors.

I am looking for a rather large class, because I feel more comfortable in such settings. Small groups of people can make me feel uncomfortable at times, for whatever reason. I am looking for a yoga class that will also be fairly advanced, since I am not a beginner in yoga, but rather, I have been doing it on a regular basis for over five years now.


Enjoying a Delayed Honeymoon in Maldives

September 22nd, 2013

My husband and I didn’t take a honeymoon because we simply couldn’t afford it. Instead, we both took a few extra days off work, and we used that time to move into our new house. We had a lot of fun, but we still wanted to have a special vacation that would make up for our missed honeymoon. When my husband sent me an email simply titled, try this boutique resort, I knew that it had to be something really incredible, as he had never even mentioned anything specific in the three years we had been married.

We finally had some bills paid off, and it was actually the perfect time for us to go away for a week of sun and fun. When I looked at the website that he had linked to, I was simply amazed. I fell in love with the over the water bungalows that were featured on that specific page. I had seen accommodations like this before, but I had never imagined myself in one. That attitude changed that same day, because I knew that we were finally going to take our delayed honeymoon. Continue reading »


Looking to Choose a Cruise As Your Next Journey?

July 21st, 2013

So you tried other types of vacations and are ready to try something new like world cruises. There are many types of cruises and perhaps you are overloaded with all the terms and need some clarification.

The first type is “Segments”. With this type you won’t be on board for the entire journey of the whole cruise, but as you may have guessed a certain segment of it. These can range anywhere from two to an excess of 6 weeks. This type of cruise is great for those on a budget who have a certain area of the world in mind or simply want to give the cruise line a test run.

The second sort is “Grand Voyages or World Cruises” These are the lavish type of cruises you will brag to your friends about. Typically lasting around 70 days They usually focus on a single hemisphere or continent.

The third kind is “Off Season Outings” If you can’t vacation in the typical cruise season there’s no need to worry. Quite a few cruise ships have off season dates for people like you. Continue reading »


Renting a Car when Traveling: Why I Did It

June 23rd, 2013

After we decided to go to Aberdeen, I got a great idea. I would do a car rental at aberdeen airport. I had never rented a car before, but I finally had the chance to think about it before my trip, and I made as many arrangements as I could beforehand. Everything turned out great, and I hope to rent a car everytime I go on a trip. Here are some of the reasons that renting a car was a smart idea.

The first reason I rented a car was that it was just easier after arriving at the airport. The idea of finding a taxi or looking at bus schedules didn’t interest me at all. Knowing that all I had to do was go to the rental shop, and they would give me a car, was all the information I needed.

It only got better from there, to be honest. I drove the car to my hotel, in solitude. I listened to a radio station I found, and I didn’t have to strain to hear the music over the hustle and bustle of strangers the way I would have had to on a bus. I didn’t have to tip a taxi driver.

For the rest of the trip, I had a great time in my car, because I could come and go as I pleased. I didn’t have to try to catch a bus, and I didn’t have to worry about any schedules. That was a huge relief. I could stay out as late as I liked, or I could travel a bit to another city if I wanted.

Like I mentioned before, everything went great with the car, and I plan to do a car rental whenever I travel. It’s so much easier to get around and I can do my own thing. I would recommend that to everyone.


Car Hire at Toulouse Airport in France

December 20th, 2012

 ... highly recommend using car hire 3000 since the rental rates are lessI need to find Toulouse airport car hire services in the near future, because I need to reserve a rental car to use while I am on vacation in France. My wife and I are taking a vacation to the French Riviera in the near future, and we are going to be arriving in France at the Toulouse Airport. As such is the case, we will need to have a car available there for rent that we will be able to use for the duration of our vacation. I am hoping that I will be able to find a car for hire at a good price.

The trip is going to be two weeks long, so I will need to hire the car I get for the entire duration of the trip. I am not sure how much I should expect to pay for renting a car for that length of time, but I am hoping that I will be able to find a good deal on it.


Getting a Limo for Our Fancy Night out

October 21st, 2012

I have finally made the decision about what I am going to do to surprise my wife for our tenth wedding anniversary. I could not decide what would be the perfect way to celebrate the ten years that we have been together. I asked her best friend for some input to see if I could try to make it the best time of her life. She told me to take her on a vacation to New York and to get a bwi limo for the night and to take her out on the town doing the things that I normally would not do with her. She suggested dinner at this one restaurant in New York that I would never pay for as well as getting some tickets for the orchestra.

I am a very frugal man and will not spend money on things that I do not think that my family needs. This one occasion has made me feel the need to open my wallet and spend a little extra on my wife. I thought that it in addition to the vacation, limo, dinner the concert and the night out that I would try to buy my wife a brand new dress and surprise her with it.

I enlisted the help of her friend once again. We spent an afternoon out shopping together, which was a first, and finally found the dress that she thought would make my wife melt. I actually had to have her pay for it so my wife would not see it on our credit card statement. I then was able to get her to help me reserve the limo, make the dinner reservations and get the concert tickets. We both thought that it would be even better for my wife to keep it all a secret and surprise her with it the night before our big date. She is going to be floored.


Best Places to Live for Students Studying in London

September 7th, 2012

10. Gerard’s Tower Of London EscapeI am going to spending a couple of semesters studying overseas starting in the spring of 2013. I am immensely excited that I have been accepted to a special programme at the London School of Fashion. Actually it has a lot to do with my employer liking my, at least I was her intern last summer and she took a liking to me and my work. I am going to start working on MA Fashion there and I am thinking that I can actually afford it thanks to her help. I need to look for very inexpensive serviced apartments around London’s Soho district. At least I believe that is correct. I am not quite sure, but I need a place within easy walking distance of the College.


An Attraction to Visit when Traveling Near Cambridge

August 16th, 2012

When many people decide to vacation overseas, they try to visit as many places as possible. If you are lucky enough to have the time and the flexibility to go to a variety of different locations, there are several that you should have on your radar; Tibet, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom are all great choices. If you happen to end up near Cambridge on your travels, make sure to schedule time for an IWM Duxford visit.

Located on a WWI and WWII airfield, IWM Duxford showcases several of the most impressive aircraft that there has ever been.


I Want to Vacation in Amsterdam Again

July 23rd, 2012

I just got back from vacation in Amsterdam last week and really loved it. You can click here to see where we were at. The city was great and so were the people. I cannot wait to go back there. It was definitely the best vacation I have ever had. I am thinking I would look into buying a holiday apartment in Amsterdam. I know it is a big investment but I think if I had an apartment there that it would allow me to go back a lot more often. I do not need a huge place to live just a nice one bedroom apartment would be fine but I really would like it to be on the canals because that is the biggest reason why I love the city. I need to find a real estate agent to start looking for my dream apartment right away. I know that the canal apartments will be a lot more expensive but being so close to the canals will be amazing and well worth the extra cost.

I was able to go almost every place that I wanted to in Amsterdam by water taxi. Water taxis are so different from taking a cab ride and was an amazing experience. I can barely stand to take a cab now that I have been so spoiled by the water taxis in Amsterdam. Another nice thing is that there is no real reason to buy a car because of the water taxis. I would like my apartment to be on the top floor of the building so I can have the best view of the city. I may eventually just move there and sell my main home in a few years. I need to save up some extra money first though because I am not sure I will be able to find a job in my field there.


Getting Ready for a Long Bike Ride

July 18th, 2012

I am getting ready for a long bike trip with my girlfriend, her sister and her sister’s boyfriend. I have been looking at touring bicycles because Jack tells me that my bike is not really suited for a long trek on the Blue Ridge Parkway. He actually has several bikes, including a folding Brompton that will carry panniers on both the front and the back. He would let me borrow it, but the problem is that there is a great difference in our heights and his bikes are too small for me to ride with any comfort. At 6 foot 3 inches I have trouble finding a lot of things that are right for me, but this is not going to be a real issue in this case. Of course I have a great bike that I use for every day riding around the city of High Point and weekend rides out in the country. It just is not suited for a long trip.


The Best Place in the World to Meet Single Women

July 18th, 2012

If you find yourself aching for a little break from Thailand, consider a trip to a land where you can meet wonderful women who are fascinated by you and make great conversation. A truth that is not shared nearly often enough is that South America is a great place to meet single women. The continent is known for its diverse and welcoming cultures, bright colors, and beautiful scenery, but it is less known that it is a fantastic place to visit if you are interested in meeting single women.

Start your visit to South America in Caracas, Venezuela. The city boasts a vibrant culture, with an excellent nightlife.
