Las Vegas- Family Friendly?!

By | Destinations | No Comments

It was 1996 and my parents decided it was finally time to take that family vacation that my sisters and I dreamed of…..HOLLYWOOD!

So, when they told us of the plans to fly into San Francisco and rent a car to drive down the PCH with stops along the way (including Hollywood & Beverly Hills!) we were SO excited! Then they threw in the fact that we would fly home from Vegas. Wait, what?! What were we, as teenagers, not of legal gambling age going to do in Las Vegas?

In the city that never sleeps, gambling is only one of the thousands of things that makes this a must destination, at any age.

From shopping in the unique boutiques, to the arcades where my sisters and I won enough tickets to bring home a karaoke machine. Every morning we would lay by the pool, take the trolley down the strip to see the free shows at Treasure Island, and then head to the aquarium before heading to the Bellagio to watch the nightly fountain display.

The 4 days that my parents spent hitting the slots and buffets, my sisters and I enjoyed the entertainment, and amazing theme park-like hotels and resorts that the city had to offer.

Fast forward 10 years later, and a tip with my husband and our best friends, the city still had that “adventurous air” about it. We rented a convertible and headed to the Grand Canyon, and this time, actually got to pull the handle on the slots! Although so much had changed, it still all seemed so familiar, as the aquarium, Treasure Island and Bellagio fountains, all became favoutrites for my husband and friends.

So, next time you envision a family vacation full of action, entertainment, and even relaxation; don’t count Vegas out!

4. PlusUs: LifeCard

Price: $70

Best for: Flashpackers

The most compact portable charger we know of, it’s as thin as a credit card, and it’ll fit comfortably into a wallet or purse, ideal for emergencies when you’ve drained your main battery pack (the standard LifeCard has a capacity of 1500 mAh). You also won’t find a better looking battery pack; the brushed stainless steel and laser welding give it a premium look and feel. It’s also available in brushed copper, mirror polish stainless steel and gold sheen.

Its tentacle legs provide stability on rocky, uneven ground, and can even be wrapped around trees! This mini tripod is a solid solution for capturing all those incredible sunrises and sunsets on your travels, and works with most modern cameras – including DSLRs.

6. Drone Cameras

Price: from $45 to $2,000

Best for: aspiring travel photographers and selfie experts

If you’re a keen Instagrammer, you’ll have probably seen some beautiful aerial shots from around the world. Join the club by investing in a mini drone for simple family selfies, or take a look at the Mavic Pro – DJI’s smallest consumer drone capable of 4k video. If you want to keep it light and travel-friendly, this mini drone costs less than £30, and you’ll be able to get some fun photos with it.

7. Polarizing Filters

Price: from $20

Best for: DSLR owners

Ever taken a photo and have it completely ruined by over exposure? Polarizing lenses offer a quick fix for it. They work in the same way as polarized sunglasses, only allowing in some lens flares, darkening skies and darkening the exposure. Our tip: Make sure you buy one that fits your lens if you’re buying for your DSLR.

8. GoPro Hero5

Price: from $599.99

Best for: adrenaline junkies

If you’re a keen rapids rider, mountain climber or diver, an underwater camera can turn your memories into amazing photos and video. If you buy the Hero5, you’ll be able to transfer your photos onto your phone wirelessly. Yep, that means they can go straight on Facebook.

9. Rashguard by Cynthia Rowley

Price: $100-$300

Best for: Surfer chicks

Cynthia Rowley has a stylish range of swim and surf wear, and as far as cool travel accessories go, this has got to be one of the funkiest ways of protecting your skin from the sun and the ravages of leaning your forearms for too long on your body-board. It’s made of Nylon/Spandex, with an SPF 50+, comes in a variety of colourful prints and doubles as a base layer for your wetsuit. Put it to practise on the swells of the Gold Coast, Australia.

10. Samsonite digital luggage scales and torch

Price: $38 (excluding batteries)

Best for: People who really can’t travel light

Especially useful for longer trips, when you may have accumulated a few souvenirs along the way (or been hit by an impulsive shopping spree in New York). Samsonite’s digital luggage scale will track your added weight and stop you being hit by unexpected baggage fees. It’s a practical and well designed tool that comes with useful extras – the 80cm tape measure and a built-in torch. Maximum capacity: 40kg. Really can’t deal with packing light? Maybe it’s time you checked out this wearable luggage.

They’re Just Doing Their Job

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Even before I became a travel agent, I was an avid traveler. Growing up, my family’s mission was to do at least one family trip a year. Whether it involved getting onto an airplane or loading into the family Chevy Lumina Mini Van, the trip was taken.

So, when I read about how “horrible” customer service is on a particular airline, I try and read through the entire posting (on social media) or article (blog or paper) and try to understand what initially upset the customer, unless of course they were just born miserable.

Usually it is a case of misunderstanding. Most travelers that complain, take it out on the front line workers. As they would do to a waiter or waitress, retail cashier, or in this case the flight attendants and ticketing agents.

Prior to writing this, I googled™ horrible flight stories and cam across an interesting blog page http://www.flightsfromhell.com/ and although I must say some of the stories have a fun “venting” tone to them others were, well, born that way.

When a flight is delayed or cancelled due to weather, it can put a damper (see what I did there) on things, but it is in your best interest (staying alive) that the airlines do this. It is not the Flight Attendants fault, or the ticketing agent, and you are not the only person in the world who is being put out by this, so take a deep breath and be polite because trust me, they will work with you to find a solution. This happened on a recent trip for me with my husband and daughter, leaving Palm Springs and heading back to Canada. The airplane had a mechanical issue, so it was cancelled. We stood in line for almost 3 hours waiting for our turn at the front with the agent. The following evening was the earliest he could get us out and would mean a very long layover in Denver, as they try to accommodate everyone else on the same flight. We offered to take a taxi from Palm Springs to LAX, where we know there were more flights leaving from a larger airport, and he smiled while he handed us a voucher for the 2 hour taxi ride. He rescheduled us on an Air Canada Flight leaving the next morning direct to Toronto, and gave us some meal vouchers as well. We politely thanked him and made our way to LAX. When we got to the airport, we approached an agent and explained that our flight left the next morning and she booked us a room at the airport hotel for the evening, and I asked if she had any meal vouchers, to which she smiled and gave us some more vouchers for breakfast.

We were inconvenienced by a day, but it wasn’t the end of the world. My 4 year old was tired, but not cranky because she fed off our tone of “well these things happen” and enjoyed the chocolate chip pancakes she had for breakfast.

Don’t get me wrong, I have encountered my fare share of miserable flight attendants and ticketing agents, and sometimes even being polite, patient and smiling doesn’t win them over, but I have been on their side of the line when I worked retail, when I served tables and now as a travel agent. Getting yelled at by 30 customers, and then you get that ONE that is understanding and patient, changes the remainder of the day!

Travel Tips On A Budget

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Don’t Schedule During Peak Times

If you’re looking for someplace warm to go during the winter, chances are you’re not the only one. This high demand can drive up airfare and hotel prices, but can also mean that companies offer better rates for bulk! With that in mind, you can save a bundle by scheduling your trip for the off season–spring and fall are usually best. Depending on the region that is considered off-seasons. For example, Mexico, if you schedule your trip for the summer rates may be lower. For Europe, schedule your flight some time between Thanksgiving and Easter when most tourists opt to stay home.

Consider Packing Carry-On Baggage Only

It’s no secret baggage fees generate plenty of revenue for budget airlines. It takes some discipline but travelling with carry on baggage only is a definite way to save lots of money travelling. Check out our tips on packing light and what necessities are needed in our other blog.

Find a Cheap Flight

If air travel is a must–perhaps you’re going somewhere across the pond–there are a few cost-effective options you should consider. There are a variety of search engines available online that allow you to compare airfare in an attempt to find the cheapest flight possible. If you’re willing to be patient and flexible with your travel plans, flying standby or giving up your seat on an overbooked flight is also a great way to save money. Most airlines offer you cash or a voucher for future travel if you opt to offer up your seat on an overbooked flight.

Book Flights With Layovers For Cheaper Flights

Search engines are getting better at providing lots of custom options for flights. Direct flights might be the most convenient, but are also the most expensive more often than not. Look for flights with layovers on and you may find yourself saving hundreds of dollars when they mix and match airlines for each route of travel!

Bring Your Own Snacks For The Airport/Airplane

Airports might have duty free, but restaurants, whether sit down or quick order are often expensive at airports. With water not being allowed through customs prior to security check point, bring a refillable bottle and fill up once you get through security. Food can be brought through (vegetables and fruits exempt in some countries) so be sure to pack a few snacks.

Pack Snacks For Your Days Adventure

During long days of sightseeing, snacks help fuel your energy as well as hold your appetite until dinner.

Las Vegas

By | Destinations | No Comments

Las Vegas, USA

Average temperature: 21°C

Its Spanish name means ‘the meadows.From its beginnings as a cowboy town, through its rat-pack mobster phase to its current “Big Time” delivery. It’s also a good pick for a March holiday destination, as temperatures hovering around 20°C are pleasant and not quite as desert-like as other times of year.

You don’t have to be a gambler! Las Vegas bills itself more as an entertainment centre. The Wynn, for example, offers free mojitos and tequila. True to its name, The City That Never Sleeps, with museums, shows, and casinos that run all hours of the day- You will certainly need to catch up on those zzz’s on the flight home!

The most eye-catching attraction at the Bellagio, a supersize, all-American Italian villa, is the signature dancing fountains. The geysers—more than 1,200 in all—are nestled in the eight-and-a-half acre lake in front of Bellagio on the Strip. They erupt every half-hour beginning at 3pm and every 15 minutes from 8pm until midnight. A must see when in Vegas!

Many of the more preposterously themed hotels in Vegas pay homage to notable locales around the world that would seem tacky anywhere else than here. You want Paris and the Eiffel Tower? Try Paris Las Vegas. Venice? There are gondolas and a St. Mark’s Square at the Venetian. Bellagio has a replica of Italy’s Lake Como. The Big Apple? New York New York has the Statue of Liberty!

Cirque du Soleil shows and dozens of other options around the area, hitting up one of the city’s production shows is one of the most popular activities for Vegas visitors. There are plenty of excellent choices, including Blue Man Group’s rhythmic take on alienation at the Luxor, or Penn & Teller’s magic secrets revealed at Rio. Or catch the smash-hit Four Seasons musical, Jersey Boys—one of the city’s most enduring Broadway shows—at Paris Las Vegas.

All That Disney Has To Offer In 2017!

A visit to Walt Disney World Resort is a trip to the most magical place on Earth. While here, you’ll discover four fantastical Theme Parks, two amazing Water Parks, 25-plus unique Disney Resort hotels and the one-of-a-kind Disney Springs.

Thrills and adventure await the whole family, with plenty of fun for everyone. Make your next dream vacation one for the storybooks!
