Fortunately, there are a quite a few pet friendly hotels to choose from. Even in locations off-the-beaten-path, there’s probably an establishment or two that allows pets.
That said, not all pet-friendly motels and hotels are the same. While it’s not uncommon for them to charge fees, those fees aren’t all the same.
Here are a few things you should do before settling on accommodation for you and your pet:
- Do research on restrictions and fees. Compare not only the fee, but the overall hotel rates and taxes as well. If you’re traveling with a large dog, which hotel will be likely to accommodate your needs the most? Some have weight and size restrictions.
- If possible, try to book a room on the first floor so you won’t have to disturb guests in the elevators or walk up and down steps with your pet. Staying on the first floor also makes it easier for you to take the animal out a few times a day for “bathroom” breaks.
- Speaking of which, make sure you understand
A trip to Athens or Greece is nothing less than a trip to the pages of history. The ancient architectures are still present, many of them partially demolished, but still bearing the message from the past. The major construction, such as the Parthenon, which happens to be one of the iconic constructions of Athens, speaks of the rich history and culture of the city. The most interesting part about visiting Greece is that there is no specific attraction within the country. When you are in Athens, you will be able expecting various archaeological and historical museums which will speak about the history of the place and also about the various aspects of their art, culture and lifestyle. What really sets Athens apart from the rest of the world is that, even though there are museums and various other places to visit within the city, the city as a whole is living museums in itself. Numerous constructions and various designs can be found all across the city. They have their own story to tell and add to the pages of
Cheap package holidays allow you to get everything that you need all at one time. There are no separate bookings of hotels, plane tickets, and amusement park admissions. You can get everything you need all at one place and for one price. This is usually the more affordable option and it takes out all the stress and guesswork of trying to put together the package yourself.
The first tip to getting cheap package holidays is being flexible on where you are willing to go. If you are open-minded about the place you are going to visit, you will have a better range when it comes to pricing. As long as you have an activity in mind, you can then decide where to go exactly. Start with the general criteria of an island, ski resort, or water park. You can also narrow your results by location.
Another way to get cheap package holidays is knowing when to book the trip. You really have two options when it comes to setting up the vacation. You can either reserve your package
Get paper copies
Of course, you need to keep your passport with you while you are in a foreign country. It’s better to keep a photo copy as well.
Inform your credit card company
You may want to let your credit card company know that you are going to use the card. This will help avoid any issues that may arise in case the company assumes your credit card is stolen.
It’s better to hold any newspaper that you may have subscribed to. This is to keep the burglars from knowing that you are away for a few days.
Consider a house sitter
When you are away, it’s better to have someone in your house. You can consider someone in your community for this job.
Look for a gardener
If you have a lawn in your house, the plants need to be watered and taken care of while you are away. Therefore, make sure you ask someone to do the job. You may even pay them for the service.
Remove the spare key
Some people have a spare key to their house in case they
Alleppey is not short of houseboats meaning it is very possible to find one at any given time. They are modern luxuries that come at very affordable rates passing through tropical mangroves and other mesmerizing sceneries. I particularly love the coconut aroma that the trips are filled with as the boathouse wades through the waters. Saji Holidays Houseboat, B 4 You Houseboats, Alleppey Crystal Holidays Houseboats, Lake Pearl Houseboat and The Kerala Houseboat are some of the most popular houseboats but there is a long list of properties available for enjoyment. I have personally had a chance to enjoy a few of the facilities and I have a few favorites that while I am in Alleppey.
This beauty of a boathouse can be found at Zacariva Bazar a kilometer from the Alappuzha Railway Station. It is also a few kilometers from the KSRTC bus stand in Alleppey. The free breakfast here is a huge attraction for visitors and I like the fact that I can access assistance at the front desk round the clock. It comprises of two spacious guestrooms and ample amenities including makeup mirror, wardrobe, medical assistance, room service and laundry. Parking is available and
Contrary to e.g. precious stones and jade, which are not renewable, thus finite and teak wood (that to renew till it becomes commercially valuable takes between 20 and 30 years) and bamboo (that to renew till it becomes commercially valuable takes only 3 years) are infinite.
As a member of the sub-family Bambusoideae of the grass family Poaceae or Gramineae, bamboo is a perennial flowering evergreen that is said to be originated some million years ago in what is nowadays China from where it started to conquer practically the entire world and developed into more than 1.400 ground and above-ground growing species in 115 genera.
Should someone ever ask whether you know the fastest growing plant on this planet you can rightfully answer, “Yes, I know that is bamboo.”
Out of the in Burma recorded total of 97 bamboo species, 15 belong to the species ‘Dendrocalamus’ (the local names of the top-three of them are Hmyin, Wapyu and Wabo-myet-san-gye) and 11 to the species ‘Gigantochloa’. These bamboos are also some of the 10 most economical species and are members of the group of so-called ‘Giant Bamboo or Timber Bamboo’. They grow under favourable soil and
The Library of Alexandria
Considered as one of the largest reading institutions in the world, the Library of Alexandria hosts more than 8 million books. Constructed in 2002, the Library of Alexandria welcomes several travelers who tour Egypt daily.
The Library of Alexandria is actually the modern version of the ancient library of Alexandria that we established by the Ptolemies in the 3rd century BC that was damaged afterwards during the 1st century AD. The library hosts four museums for antiquities, the history of science, ancient manuscripts, and one museum dedicated to the former Egyptian president, Anwar El Sadat. While in Alexandria tourists who visit Egypt should always pay the library a visit.
The Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa
The Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa is in fact the largest and most mysterious Greco-Roman necropolis in Egypt. Discovered by coincidence in 1900, the tombs hosts hundreds of tombs that are featured by the interesting blend between the Roman and the ancient Egyptian arts and architecture. Travelers who spend their vacations in Egypt should never miss the chance to explore the secrets of this ancient burial site.

No Man’s Land
The Oklahoma Panhandle once belonged to Texas. In fact, so did parts of what became New Mexico, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming.
When the pared-down version of Texas we know today petitioned to become a state, being a slave state, it could not include any area north of the 36th parallel.
To the east was Indian Territory-the main body of present-day Oklahoma. New Mexico Territory to the west of the panhandle was formed in 1850. The Kansas Territory was formed in 1854, and including part of that, The Territory of Colorado was formed in 1861.
This left an area of land called the “Public Land Strip,” also called “The Neutral Strip.” It was considered “neutral” because it was part of neither a slave nor free state.
In the years following the Civil War, cattlemen established settlements in the area. The strip provided good grazing ground, and was not far west of the Chisholm Trail that cattlemen used to drive cattle from Texas, north to the railheads in Kansas.
Settlers surveyed the land themselves, and named it the Cimarron Territory, and in the 1880s, almost became part of
It may be stressful to drive to new places on your own. You may come across crazy drivers that always try to cut you off. Therefore, it’s hard to keep many cars together, blowing horns in traffic jams. In this scenario, you are more prone to accidents.
On the other hand, if you hire a charter bus, you will travel with an expert driver who has a better idea of the roads. So, your mind is at ease throughout your journey. Therefore, you can relax and enjoy your trip. After all, you don’t want to go through all the stress when going on a tour with a group. Your purpose is to have fun. So, hiring a bus is a good idea.
Higher Safety Rating
Compared to traveling alone, you may not be at a higher risk of accident when going with a group on a vehicle. The fact of the matter is that the drivers of chartered buses know the latest safety procedures, so they try their level best to follow the traffic rules and stay on the safe side.

Allow More for the Headcount
Ideally, you should have the final headcount prior to booking event transportation. However, when planning events, there are several factors that can influence whether you can give the exact headcount way ahead of time. It would be easier to give a solid attendance estimate beforehand if the event is a company outing, whereas the RSVP deadline of a wedding would have to wait until two weeks prior to the event to come up with the final headcount. No matter what the situation, it is more practical to overestimate the headcount and make the necessary revisions when the numbers are confirmed. In the end, you want to be sure that all guests have a seat on the bus.
Verify the Company’s Capacity
Certainly the number of vehicles required will depend on the number of guests. For this reason, it is crucial to think about the fleet size of the transportation company. This way, you will know if they are capable of providing the right number of vehicles.
When booking for an event that requires 50 buses, be sure that the operator you decide on can supply all that. Also find
Check-in was pretty quick. Internet was available throughout the hotel. As soon as all my colleagues had arrived at the hotel we departed to our individual rooms for a quick shower and then assembled in the restaurant for a delightful buffet breakfast. I loved the buffet which was ample in quantity and quality. The entire staff was really genial, affable and courteous. The 24- hour business center was equipped with a projector for presentations which proved to be quite a good working area. We also made plans to go to the World Trade Center situated just 2 miles away from the hotel. We spent our evening in DWTC and got in time for the a la carte dinner which too was scrumptious.
Fatigued and weary as we were, we got back to our hotel rooms and passed our night on the silken and elegant beds. The next day after enjoying the breakfast we made a move to the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Center. It took us exactly 20 minutes by shuttle, once again arranged by the hotel. The DICEC had meeting points, VIP lounges, Internet and business center facilities etc. all providing the ideal environment to

Head to what is considered North County and pay a visit to the Del Mar Fairgrounds. From mid-July to early September, the fairgrounds are converted into the legendary Del Mar Racetrack.
