First Aid Essentials For Travelers

Let's face it, stuff happens while on vacation. You didn't mean to trip up a step at the city museum or get a splinter in your leg from the driftwood at the beach, but it happened just the same. Instead of wondering how to take care of any minor accidents that happen on your trip, take time before you go to make up a medical travel kit. You don't have to be a boy scout to be prepared; it just makes good sense for anyone traveling. It will depend on where your travels take you as to what to put in your kit, but there are some things that are necessary wherever you go. And while it's true your destination may be in the US where there might be stores available to purchase what you need when you need it, why risk it or interrupt your fun because you need to locate a store? Must haves for any trip: • bandaids in various sizes • antiseptic towelettes • Benadryl tablets or the like • antacid tablets • sunscreen • anything else important to your particular health iss...

 


Valley Forge: The Place to Cure Cabin Fever

(NewsUSA) – Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pa., were the site of, arguably, the most famous winter in history, when the Continental Army hunkered down amid harsh conditions, limited supplies and low morale. Fortunately, things have perked up a lot since then. Today, when the cold and snow weather sets in, the area comes alive with a variety of outdoor activities that ensure not only rosy cheeks but plenty of memories built with family and friends. Downhill skiers flock to Spring Mountain Adventures, Schwenksville, which offers top-notch schussing within a commute that takes a matter of minutes, not hours. The 535-foot mountain hosts skiing, snowboarding and tubing, down nine trails serviced by six lifts. A full array of lessons is available, catering to all levels of expertise. Apres ski options include a lodge where adventurers can ease their tired muscles while enjoying a fresh slice of pizza in front of a roaring fireplace. To kick up the luxury a notch, the nearby Woodside Lodge offers overnig...

 


Bases to Cover Before Traveling Abroad

Well, you've decided it's time to take that trip you've always dreamed about; the big trip out of the country to see the international sights. It's a little daunting and scary to plan, but if you take into consideration all aspects of your future trip including the expected and some of the unexpected, you'll be better prepared to handle any problems. This will also give you some peace of mind before you depart, which helps with the long plane ride and subsequent jet lag. Homework This doesn't mean you have to read up on the history and look at all the pictures of every museum before you go, it means getting to know the local laws and customs of the areas. What is the dress code? Are shorts frowned upon? How do they expect women to behave? The more you know about the country, government, and people, the better you're able to understand and respect the customs. Also, it's important to learn how thieves target tourists and what you can do to protect yourself and your valuables. Learning about the cou...

 


Nicaragua Offers Neoclassical Luxuries

(NewsUSA) – When I announced plans to travel to Nicaragua in search of luxury travel destinations, friends thought I had lost it. Many people assume that the country is still engulfed in political turmoil and a security risk for travelers. On the contrary, Nicaragua is one of the safer places in Central America, offering fabulous natural beauty and world-class boutique hotels at bargain prices. After arriving in Managua, I headed 50 miles northwest to the colonial city of Leon. In this historic university town, I discovered paradise in the gem-like Hotel La Perla ($100 double). This stately neoclassical mansion has been lovingly restored by its two charming expat owners, James Petersen and Mark McKnight. Each of the spacious 15 rooms is furnished in antiques. The dining is some of the best in country. One memorable feast included local lobster and sea bass artfully prepared by the world-class kitchen. After a few leisurely days in Leon, I headed south to Nicaragua’s other colonial city, Grenada....

 


Eccentric Americana Entices Travelers

(NewsUSA) – While high-brow cultural events might appeal to some, many travelers choose roads paved with kitsch, knick-knacks and dinosaur sculptures. Americana -; or the diner-laden culture of folktales and Norman Rockwell paintings -; produces donut burgers and giant balls of string, local food festivals and unusual athletic events. Touring regional sights brings families closer to home and provides a fun, memorable way to explore America’s regional cultures and cuisines. Families looking for eccentric fun can’t do better than to head to Wisconsin. Eclectic food stops abound. Wisconsin’s Mount Horeb Mustard Museum houses the world’s largest collection of mustard varieties -; visitors can see over 4,600 dijons, wasabis and grey poupons, not to mention antique mustard pots, vintage advertisements and other mustardy memorabilia. Those over 21 years old might enjoy a trip to the National Brewery Museum in Potosi, where they can view turn-of-the-century brewing equipment. If vi...

 


The Volunteer Vacation

Perhaps you've never considered taking a volunteer vacation, and in fact, don't really know what one is. In this article we'll explore the concept of a volunteer vacation and why you might consider taking one. Traditionally, a vacation is taken in order to relax, rewind, unplug, and rejuvenate. A vacation takes you away from your daily rut and the stress of your job. Ideally, a vacation takes you out of your daily reality and transports you somewhere fun, interesting, relaxing and perhaps exotic. A volunteer vacation can take this to the next level and introduce the concept of vacation with a purpose. A volunteer vacation involves taking a vacation with the express purpose of working to help others, and paying for the privilege to do so. If you've never done this before, it may sound odd to pay to work on a trip where most people would relax, but think back to some of the vacations you've taken in the past. Truthfully, didn't you get a little bored just relaxing? Didn't you wonder if that's all there...

 


Get the Most From Your Travel Budget

When you've decided you'd like to take a vacation, there are many decisions to make. You might want lots of activities like sightseeing, hiking, shopping, and scuba diving. Or you might want your trip to be romantic, fun, exotic, or exciting. Where you go can depend a lot on your finances and what you can afford. For many people, a vacation isn't really a vacation unless they travel somewhere farther away than their own state. If this is the case with you, then consider your possible destinations and their "high season", "low season", and "shoulder season" to get the most for your money. High season This is the time of year when your destination is the most popular, and therefore the time of year when the resorts are at their most expensive. If everyone wants to go to the Florida coast for spring break, then this is when the prices will be the highest. Please note the high season, or peak season, is not the same time of year for every destination. Ski resort towns have their high season in the wint...

 


Vacation Planning Basics

Before You Decide - Vacation Considerations ( Vacation Planning Basics ) Just the word "vacation" brings many positive thoughts to mind. But with so many options available and destinations to visit, you can actually be paralyzed with information overload. If you do a Google search for "travel vacation" you'll see over 31 million websites! How do you decide where to go and what to do? The first thing you need to do, before you start searching, is narrow down what you want. Here are some considerations to get you started: 1. Your budget. How much money you have to spend is a huge determinant regarding your vacation. Take a realistic look at your finances and what you're able to spend first, then you can investigate possible locations that might fit that budget. 2. The length of time you have available for the vacation. Obviously if you have a job where you can't get much time away at a pop, that's going to affect where you go on vacation. Perhaps you need to look at your vacation time as several 4...

 


Things to Remember When Renting a Car Aborad

The decision whether to rent a car while abroad is a big one. Many destinations have great public transport and will fit your needs. However, public transport doesn't go everywhere and doesn't always allow you to have the control to do things when you want to do them. But renting a car may mean high gas prices and different rules of the road, such as driving on the left side rather than the right. If you look at your itinerary carefully, weigh the pros and cons, and decide you want to rent a car then read on. 1. The time to decide whether you'll need a car on your trip abroad is before you go, not after you get there. You can make arrangements for a car through a travel agent or you can work directly with car rental companies that operate worldwide. Be sure to book while in the US and prepay in US dollars so the fee is set and can't rise on you if the exchange rate changes. 2. If you're planning to drive across the border into another country(s), a rental company will charge you extra for the privil...

 


11 Vacation Ideas You Haven’t Thought of Yet

Sometimes you want a vacation just so you can "check out." All you've been dreaming of for months is doing nothing but sit on a beach somewhere and drink umbrella drinks. The reality is, this works for the first few days, and then you're bored and you start looking around for something to do. Why not choose a different type of vacation; one where you won't ever get bored because you're occupied with something you consider worthwhile and fun? I'm talking about those vacations that are outside the box. River rafting - You can decide which trip you want based on the number of days, how rough the water will be, and the level of "roughing it" you prefer. Some float trips offer gourmet meals and don't expect you to do the dishes. Houseboat - All you need is a big body of water such as Lake Havasu or Lake Shasta, your food supplies, friends, and your swim trunks. You can also rent jet skis for your trip. Ski huts - In some mountain ranges, such as the Rocky Mountains, there are ski in and ski out huts you c...
