If you are already tired of snow, cold and constant lack of sun, then direct your gaze abroad. And to make your trip bright, warm and memorable, we have found several win-win and relevant areas. You will only have to choose the most interesting option and attend to the purchase of tickets.
What to do: visit Geronimos, climb to the highest observation deck of Señor do Monte and make stunning pictures, ride on the old tram, taking place in the old trailer of the long “tourist” route № 28 (it passes through the most picturesque areas of the city).
The capital, the largest city and the main port of Portugal is beautiful at any time of the year, but at the end of winter there is an incredibly low season, so you can safely walk around the city, see the main attractions and book a table in any restaurant you like, without encountering a crowd of annoying tourists. And do not forget to look into the pastry shop Pasteis de Belém, which serves incredible culinary masterpieces (only the famous cakes “Pâté de belé” worth it!). In the evening, head to the Ribeira promenade, which offers stunning views of the sunset over Lisbon.
What to do: throw a coin in the famous Trevi Fountain (just do not forget to make a wish), visit the Colosseum and the Roman forum, try the Roman ice cream (it is really incredible) and the famous pizza.
In February, the Eternal city is already warm enough, but it is not crowded, so you can safely walk around the Vatican and admire the Sistine chapel (many know that the rest of the year it is quite problematic to do because of the large influx of tourists). Also go up to one of the many viewing platforms to admire the city and take some interesting photos. For example, the most famous panorama is the view from the dome of St. Peter’s Cathedral. And be sure to take a look at the Pantheon, stroll through the most “Italian” Trastevere area and arrange a romantic walk through the Villa Borghese, which is a beautiful Park. Continue reading
If you can not live without new things and watch with interest what is happening on the world stage, then you understand why it is worth going abroad for beautiful things. First, it is a great opportunity to buy designer clothes at competitive prices, and secondly, at the same time you can admire the sights of a city. We have chosen the most interesting options that will definitely appeal to all lovers of quality shopping.
In the UAE, you can not only enjoy shopping, but also relax on the gorgeous beaches, sunbathe, and get acquainted with the Eastern hospitality. Well, where else can you see the real Oriental exotic? In Dubai is a harmonious combination of advanced technology and old traditions.
If you want to buy everything at once, we advise you to go straight to the famous Mall of the Emirates, where you can find shops for any budget. The shopping center, by the way, is open until the evening, so you can try on a vending thing, put it aside, devote time to some other entertainment, and then go back and buy what you wanted.
Well, if you like the local flavor, then take a look at the North-Western part of Deira, where the Golden Bazaar is located, and do not miss the “spice Market”, or “spice Market”, which most corresponds to the definition of the classic Oriental Bazaar.
Hardly anyone will argue with the fact that in this city is concentrated the largest number of designer boutiques, Department stores and showrooms, where you can find a mind-blowing outfit for a very reasonable price.
Those who are interested only in vintage items, we advise you to go to the Bohemian quarter Navigli and find there one of the most famous shops of the district Pourquoi Moi. In addition, on the last Sunday of the month in Milan, you can get to the antique market Navigli, where everyone can look after some interesting goods, and even more than one! Continue reading
According to psychologists, journey together — the more the test, which not many people can withstand a couple. The argument can be any little thing: the wrong place in the plane, a delay or flight delay, but simply banal fatigue, — and then deep resentment and misunderstanding. In order not to replenish the sad statistics, as well as to prevent your vacation from being hopelessly spoiled, pay attention to these tips that will help you overcome difficulties and maintain relationships.
Plan your budget in advance
Even before you start buying tickets and looking for hotels, agree on how much you are willing to spend on the trip, whether it is your total budget or everyone spends their money. Also determine the daily amount for which you plan to live. That then did not get an unpleasant situation when you were counting on one thing, and your partner suddenly decided to save.
Find time for yourself
Joint vacation does not mean that you will spend all 24 hours together. Even if you are very in love with each other, you need to agree on certain days (or hours) that you will devote only to yourself. It does not matter, it will be shopping, walking around the city, visiting some sights or reading your favorite book in the Park. If everyone has enough free time, it will only benefit your relationship.
Do not try to see all the sights on the first evening
A common mistake of many travelers, when they are one trip (or even one evening) trying to cover the maximum: and the sea, and museums, and shopping, and sightseeing. As a result, this leads to the fact that both partners are tired and begin to break on each other. Remember the Golden rule: less is better. Continue reading
While Russian gourmets mourn the fact that they want to make it impossible to bring their favorite ham and cheese from abroad (exclusively for personal use, of course), we decided to look at the situation from a slightly different angle and discuss those souvenirs and memorabilia that in no case should not be dragged into your home from a foreign country.
Many travelers, trying to surprise friends and relatives, indiscriminately grab talismans, amulets, icons and other exotic things, in order to present all this as an original gift. However, not all these souvenirs are worthy of taking place among other overseas items. Our ancestors also believed that each thing can carry both positive and negative energy, which can harm not only you, but also your loved ones. Especially should be wary of the traditional trinkets from India, Japan, China, Asia and Africa, Egypt and so on, because they are not as harmless as it seems at first glance. And handmade copies, received by you as a gift, should alert you in the first place. For example, the young family decided to certainly find some unique foreign copy in order to replenish their impressive collection of tourist trophies, and in the eastern bazaar acquired an outwardly innocuous copy of a religious relic. Some time after returning home, the husband, a young healthy man, went to the hospital because of heart problems, and the child fell under a car and was in intensive care. The poor woman almost went crazy, running between hospital wards and trying to figure out why all the misfortunes suddenly happened all at once. And only having addressed the psychic, the lady received an answer to her question – misfortunes fell upon the family after a dangerous souvenir appeared in their house. The expert told her how best to get rid of the little things in order to stop the series of failures and return peace and quiet to the family. Continue reading
The upcoming holidays are a great opportunity to arrange a mini-vacation for your child to take a break from school and explore new directions. And if earlier many parents were sure that there is nothing better than tours to visa-free countries, now that the dollar and the Euro has rapidly crept up, flying abroad has become very troublesome, especially with children. Therefore, as an alternative, you can choose to travel to the Golden ring of Russia by car. This is much more convenient than by bus: you will cover more cities, and will not depend on tourist transport, and will give children during the trip a lot of new experiences. But only if the car will take such that it was comfortable for you and your young travelers.
Personal history of the family, how she is preparing for the trip: why not afraid to travel with children by car, according to what criteria they chose a car for the trip, what exactly should be in the car to make the trip comfortable, what you need to take with you, and what you can do without.
Our heroes, mother and father of a three-year-old child, know perfectly well that organizing an independent trip with a baby is not an easy task, but the result is worth the effort and time.
“I have to say: our most distant trips with the child were to Turkey and Greece, but now there is no possibility to travel abroad often, and to spend holidays in the city is also not an option. In addition, my husband works a lot, so he is not able to travel with us as often as we would like. Here you want-you do not want, but you have to take the whole process into your own hands and independently think through the route that will be interesting not only to me, but also to my child. This time we decided to focus on the cities that are part of the Golden ring. Especially in Russia, in my opinion, you can relax and excellent, and attach the baby to the study of the history of their country” — says the mother of the family.
So, the trip was planned in advance. We had to travel on our ŠKODA SUPERB, which is perfect for such family trips. Continue reading
