Tips When Getting Away for the Weekend

Do you have the weekend off from work and you are thinking about spending it somewhere you can rest and enjoy for a while? If you are considering different countries, then you better decide soon because the spare time you have will not last long. Especially if you are counting in a plane flight to take you somewhere, you have to get to the airport in time for the last-minute tickets to be sold with discounts. If you don’t catch this in time, you will be charged the full price of the ticket and will be waiting for another flight. Add to that the fact that you probably should think about how to reach your chosen destination in no time.

Even a flight may take long if you have chosen to go somewhere that is halfway around the globe. At most, your weekend may be comprised with one day of travelling, one day of relaxation (that is actually spent resting because you are tired from all the travelling), and another day of travelling back home.  That doesn’t sound like much fun, does it? So unless you want to spend your holiday like that, you have to move now and sort things out.

It is not that hard to choose a location. If you want adventure, go get a map and randomly select a place to go to. This is convenient if you have been to different places before. But if you already have something in mind, maybe some place that you have wanted to go to for years, this is probably the time that you should realize that dream. After all, you want to enjoy. And there is nothing better to help you enjoy than spending your free time in a place where you really want to be. That can be said for all kinds of people.

Self Catering In Edinburgh: The Best Ways To Visit

Thanks greatly to the international arts festival, August is by far the peak time for tourism in Edinburgh. Naturally, accommodation comes at a premium during this busy month. You must book your stay in advance, whether you are looking for a hostel, hotel, or accommodations that allow self catering in Edinburgh during and around the festival.

A good place to find the right accommodations is the classifieds.

It is important to look into the classifieds, while also using more traditional methods to find a place to stay. Why? Many Edinburgh residents leave the city during the month of August. If you diligently check the classifieds, you may land yourself a cozy spot with all the amenities and comfort you enjoy at home.

Classifieds are offered in many newspapers, both on and offline. There are also many websites that provide classified ads.

While this may be one of the more comfortable options, the downside is a higher price at this time of year. That being said, prices will be high for hotels and hostels, which raise their prices to the sky during peak season.

If you are looking to stay in Edinburgh and avoid the high prices, you also of the option of looking for a free stay somewhere. While this may sound impossible at first, there are many people who are more than willing to allow strangers to sleep in their spare room or on a couch for a short period of time. If you go this route, you will not only get cheap lodging, but also the opportunity to meet new locals and some insider information on the place you are staying. Although you may not be charged for the room, it is always important to either cook for or take your hosts out to dinner. It is also acceptable to leave presents behind for their hospitality.

Just like classifieds, there are websites catering to exactly this type of lodging. Take a look, and see what you can find. You may discover that you enjoy staying with others, the fun of self catering in Edinburgh, and the insider knowledge which is sure to lead you to great restaurants and places you would have never discovered otherwise.

3 Pure Luxury Cruises for 2011

Cruise Ship Deals

Three pure luxury cruises

Finally, the day has come. For thirty years you have been saving up for it. You’re going to deliver on that promise you made your wife all those years ago; the one that made her marry you in the first place: you’re taking a luxury cruise!

The time has come. The internet brings you a cruise deals website that you have been frequenting for a month now, and you have narrowed it down to three options: the Canary Islands, the Caribbean or a deluxe Transatlantic cruise. Which one should you choose? Obviously, you cant ask the Mrs for input. It is the big surprise. Perhaps this article can help.

Whats a luxury cruise all about?

A luxury cruise is all about you. That is the long and the short of it. You are paying good money for top service, top food, top entertainment, top everything. Generally, a luxury cruise is smaller, with a greater staff-to-guest ratio. On these luxury cruises, staff members are often handpicked to give you the best possible service. The service is often of a standard equal to that of the queens. Luxury liners often have extra amenities too. Perhaps a spa forms part of the ship, or a gym, whereas with a normal cruise ship, it may not be the case.

Let us take a look at a few luxury cruise options.

Transatlantic cruise

Cross the Atlantic in style! You will have captain Nemo green with envy when aboard a luxury ship cruising the Atlantic. Gaze out over the incredible mass of water that is known as the Atlantic; wonder at the magnificence of the wide-open ocean; sip on a pina colada while enjoying the sun on your face and wind in your hair. This is sure to impress the missus!

If you think that a Transatlantic luxury cruise is all about gazing out over billowing waves, and no more, think again! Outstanding cuisine, top quality on-board entertainment and fantastic accommodation all form part of this perfect picture.

The cruise starts either in the UK, or one of the Mediterranean ports of Madeira, France, Italy or Spain. You board the ship to spend six nights in utter luxury, doing as much as you wish, or nothing at all. You can disembark at a port in the Caribbean, New York or Florida, fresh as a daisy.

Return can happen one of two ways: you can choose to fly back home, or opt for a fourteen-night pleasure trip! The latter is of course the jet-lag-free option.

Canary Islands

Glorious beaches, sunshine year round, fantastic scenery, days filled with fun, nights filled with stars. That is a Canary Islands cruise in a nutshell. The Mediterranean has always been a popular holiday destination, and for good reason. It is a paradise. The other bonus of cruising to the Canary Islands is that it is a very short flight back home to the UK.

The Caribbean

The Caribbean is a magic phrase. Go ahead, say it aloud the Caribbean! If there are people around you, it should automatically invoke reaction. It is a phrase synonymous with perfect luxury sun kissed vacations. If fitness is your thing, do your workout routine in the fitness center; or relax in the aqua spa. Call room service in the middle of the night just to see how fast they are. Enjoy exceptional meals. You can not go wrong with this option.

The bottom line

I hope this article helped you make a decision as to which cruise option you should choose. Although, perhaps it made it even harder for you! However, you can not go wrong with any of the choices above. And the missus will love you a tad bit longer too.
