California Dreaming…?

Posted on 21 April 2018 (0)

Travel to California and walk through its towering redwood forests, lounge on one of its world-class beaches, and sample its award-winning wines. Having opportunity to visit its bustling cities and take in the breathtaking views, experiences and culinary delights the golden state has to offer. California travel offers something for everyone. Real piece of land for everyone who enjoy to travel , California gives you the chance to Drive the narrow, winding, spectacular route to Big Sur: Nacimiento-Fergusson Road a  two-lane highway, begins in the Salinas Valley countryside north of Paso Robles, next to the often-overlooked Mission San Antonio de Padua and the Army’s Ft. Hunter-Liggett. From there it creeps through forest and chaparral to the crest of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
And of course Every real downtown has a park to serve as urban backyard, and Grand Park is more proof that L.A.’s downtown is getting realer by the day.
Make your way to San Francisco’s iconic bridge to spy on cargo ships threading through pylons painted ‘International Orange.’ Memorize the 360-degree views of the rugged Marin Headlands, downtown skyscrapers and the speck that is Alcatraz. Not too far away, you could spend days getting lost in Golden Gate Park without uncovering all of its secrets, like the paddleboat pond and bison paddock, or fully exploring its innovative science and art museums. Weekend traffic closures make the park even more of a paradise for pedestrians and cyclists.
For over 150 years , ALCATRAZ  – the name has given the innocent chills and the guilty cold sweats. Over the decades, it’s been the nation’s first military prison, a forbidding maximum-security penitentiary and disputed territory between Native American activists and the FBI. No wonder that first step you take onto ‘the Rock’ seems to cue ominous music
If you’re not from California, you may never have seen a redwood tree. And if you are from California, chances are you haven’t been to Redwood National Park.
In either case, you will feel sorry if you missed this. Because this is one of the best -and underrated – National Parks in all of the U.S. Picture it: a collection of the tallest, largest and oldest trees in the world, spread out as far as the eye can see. Since these giants’ thick, tannin-soaked bark is naturally insect-repellant, there aren’t a lot of bugs around… and consequently, not a lot of anything besides the trees and you. Few forests are as silent as Redwood National Park. Or clean. Oh, did I mention the Pacific Ocean is right next to this forest? Few places in California are as dramatic as where the redwoods meet the Pacific.
Arguably the most scenic drive in America, the Pacific Coast Highway follows Highway 1 down the northern coast and provides stunning views of the coastline and sea. The best part for sure is from Big Sur down to San Luis Obispo. The thing about California is that unless you live up north, you never see trees. You have all seasons in California, but the beach is also not as great. Nothing beats the Gulf of Mexico because of the warm water. The Gulf is infested with sharks during specific periods of time. Galveston beach in Texas. The Texas heat beats California except for Death Valley. Earlier I mentioned Mission San Antonio de Padua, and it reminded me of Texas. San Antonio of course. I had a long time friend and business partner in San Antonio, Texas who I referred a lot of work too. He grew up in California, but loved Texas a lot more.
Most of the state enjoys mild temperatures year-round, so visit California at your leisure. However, keep in mind that the climate varies considerably as you move south to north. Winters can get chilly in the north (and rainfall is considerably more common. In the south, including Los Angeles, temperatures remain high  year-round.

What Happens in Vegas…

As home to the nation’s party capital, Las Vegas, Nevada may not be the most obvious choice for  travel. However, the Silver State is so much more than slot machines and blackjack tables. With a rich historical past and stunning landscapes, Nevada serves as the perfect destination for visiting. Keeping tabs on all the cool stuff to see and do in the Silver State is, without a doubt, an impossible mission, but one feature that always seems to be top of the class is the rivaling northern and southern landscapes.
Risque nightlife and glamorous casino resorts draw crowds from around the world but not just to gamble and gawp. In modern Las Vegas, top chefs dish up global flavours, while boutique hotels, fashion-forward shops, art galleries and chic clubs attract even gambling neophytes who can’t tell a full house from a flush.
Where casinos have no clocks, nightlife has no limits, and Sin City stays wide-awake until dawn. Saunter past velvet ropes at an ultra lounge, sip cocktails under the stars at a rooftop bar, or take in a mega-star’s stage show, Las Vegas is one of the most visited places in the world.
With countless opportunities for outdoor adventure, North America’s largest alpine lake, Lake Tahoe has become a popular Nevada destination. Located along the east shore of the lake is Sand Harbor, a 55-acre stretch of white sandy beach.
Is there anything more American than a wild horse? I don’t think so. For decades, the wild horse—more specifically, the mustang—has been a boldface symbol of the entire American West, swiftly summing up what it means to be wild and free. And guess what? You can see herds upon herds of wild horses just about anywhere in Nevada, considering about 50% of the entire nation’s wild horse population resides in the Silver State. And honestly, with Nevada being the ultimate untamed state, I couldn’t imagine any better a stomping ground for this steed. Of all the wildlife, there’s something about the Nevada Desert Bighorn Sheep that seems to have this ancient, pre-Ice-Age sorta vibe going on. Maybe because out of most of the other animals on this lineup, the desert bighorn sheep has managed to survive in some of the bleakest conditions for the longest periods of times
Every year, a city springs up like a mirage in the Black Rock Desert, a bizarre carnival of art, music, self-expression, and self-reliance — with a dash of pyromania thrown in. The event that started with a few friends on a beach in San Francisco drew almost 66,000 people to the playa last year to revel in a flaming fantasyland stocked with mutant vehicles, alien artworks, and all sorts of mystical creatures. Nevada State Route 375 — officially dubbed the Extraterrestrial Highway in 1996 — runs near the infamous military facility known as Area 51 and is a destination for alien enthusiasts, many of whom claim to have spotted UFOs and other strange apparitions along the road. Spend a night at the Little A’Le’Inn in the town of Rachel, pick up some alien souvenirs, and keep your eyes peeled for little green men.

Posted on 26 March 2018 (0)

Italy can be a great tourist attraction to visit. Especially, if this is your first time that you are going to Italy. However, there are people that are stressing about travelling to Italy for the first time. Mostly, because they don’t know all the rules that might be different from what we know. These are some of the reasons why you should stop stressing about travelling to Italy immediately.

They are really friendly people

You don’t need to worry about finding your way in Italy. The Italian people are really friendly and will always assist tourists.

There are some countries that are not as friendly towards tourists, and this can make things hard. However, this is the one thing that you don’t need to worry about Italy. You might even make a couple of friends for life.

The food isn’t strange or foreign

Another thing that people are stressing about when it comes to a foreign country, is the type of food that they are serving. Some can be foreign and really not something that you normally will consider buying. However, this isn’t the case in Italy.

They are serving familiar food that most people will eat. Their food is delicious and you will get to love their pasta and pizza. You can always ask the chef what ingredients are used if you are really scared about what you are eating.

You don’t need to have money to tip people

In so many countries, you need to make sure that you are tipping people when you are eating in restaurants. However, when you are going to Italy this is the last thing that you need to worry about. In fact, they might find it offensive to get a tip from you.

So, don’t worry about taking more money for tipping, when you are going to Italy.

If you have cash on you, you will be fine

We are so used to pay with our credit card when we are buying stuff these days. It is much easier and safer to do. However, this is something that you should consider when you are going to Italy. You don’t need to worry about your money getting stolen so easily.

And, there are many places in Italy, where you still can’t pay with your credit card. So, having cash on you will let you stress a lot less about not being able to pay.

Italy. A great country to visit. However, if this is your first time, you might be stressing about a couple of things. With knowing all these, you will know for sure that you can visit Italy without stressing about anything. You can just visit the country and enjoy everything that Italy has to offer.
