And there can be no better place to take that magical family safari than Namibia, a desert country of stark and breathtaking beauty with one of the world’s wildest coastlines. Namibia is sparsely populated but proud and culturally diverse tribes live as they have lived over generations. It is a country rich in diamonds, wilderness and wildlife. All this makes it an ideal family safari or family vacation destination. This is a place that is popular with celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who also found it a great place to have their baby!
Unlike many of the popular safari destinations in Africa, Namibia is one of the few African countries where a self-drive holiday is an excellent option, with the extra flexibility that this brings. This can be particularly important and helpful if you are traveling with young children. Another important consideration when you’re planning to travel with … Read the rest
When you and your family decide to go abroad on a long vacation to spend some time away from home, you have to think about the budget. Allocating a certain amount of money for this very luxurious trip is a must before you begin planning. However, this can be a difficult task as the price of tickets is extremely high. This is especially true when you are travelling to another part of the world. This is the reason why most people are forced to pre-book months in advance. While you may do this and save a little on the overall cost, there are more disadvantages than the good. Booking several months in advance can cause many problems. A person or a working couple cannot ask for a leave two months in advance from their workplace. If you assume that you will be granted a leave and at the end you … Read the rest
The words stress, toddlers, and travel do seem to fit together. Everyone of us who has had or has now got small children would by and large agree with these three words. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be like that, all you need to do is to follow a few simple hints and tips.
We adults spend our lives dealing with deadlines, and travelling on vacation is no different. We tend to cut things fine, but our toddlers have no concept of time so we have to learn to allow for this. Just leave early, don’t be in such a hurry, because our toddlers see everything as new and exciting so they want to stop, explore, have a rest, you name it, they are up to it. We get stressed, because we know the aircraft will leave on time without us, so allow more time, and … Read the rest
The Ibiza that the vast majority of the world know or are aware of by way of tv or bundle vacation exposure is a thoroughly different place to the place that those of us who are fortunate sufficient to live in Ibiza know. Lastly, despite this legacy, the destiny of the first two Schrager/Starck hotels in New York is worthy of brief reflection. This system is designed to thank meeting planners who schedule events at Hilton Hotels worldwide. Slip south to hotels in St. Louis to dine on the city’s famend smoky barbecue and melt-in-your-mouth gooey butter cake.
If the Schrager/Starck hotels created distinctive locations as a challenge to the generic lodge chain expertise, it appears ironic that Starck-designed hotels multiplied through the 1990s and past, together with Miami’s Delano Lodge (1995), Los Angeles’ Mondrian Hotel (1996), London’s St Martin’s Lane Lodge (1999) and Sanderson Hotel (2000), Hong Kong’s Jia … Read the rest
A direct flight from the west coast of mainland USA to the east coast of Australia will take between 13 and 14 hours of flight time. One of many challenges of finding a purple eye flight to Hawaii from the continental US is that these flights are westbound, and red eye flights typically are used on eastbound flights. Because of the prolonged distance (assumption!), direct flights from Australia fly the Sydney to Dallas direct route, and return flights are direct into Brisbane (Dallas to Brisbane). FlightStats supplements FAA knowledge with data from other sources including airport and airline data feeds to offer you both runway and gate occasions at any time when possible. Let’s take a look at which cities have such flights as of the time of scripting this post. There are multiple choices for flights from USA to Australia inside each alliance.
