Top 5 Xmas and winter holiday plans – Something for everyone

Traveling in winter is an incredible experience if you know where go to. We propose five very different plans to enjoy the winter holiday and recharge energies for the new year. Among them, there are typical winter holiday choices such as the best Christmas markets in the world, the best ski resorts for the most adventurous and the best lighting and pyrotechnics plans in the world. For those basically looking for relaxing holidays we propose some of the best hot springs in the world and the warmest beaches to enjoy a bit of summer in December.

Best Christmas markets

The smell of ginger, cinnamon and chocolate are just some of the reasons for most of us to love Christmas Markets. The lights, the charm of the craft stalls and the shows that are grouped together make it a very affordable Christmas plan for everyone. Every year cities all over the world spread the magic with their markets and here are the best ones.

Among the famous Christmas markets in the world we can find the ones in Berlin, Dresden, Nuremberg and the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in London. Usually there are a few in each city and in some of them sell a ticket to get in and enjoy the indoor activities. Based in the German ones, in the United States we can find some recognized as the Texas Christkindl Market in Texas or the Cincidutsch Christkindlmarkt in Ohio. All of them usually close before Christmas Eve so hurry up!

Asia also celebrates this tradition and one of the most famous Christmas market is Singapore’s Christmas Wonderland, which has craft booths, typical food of the country and a large number of attractions such as carnivals, children’s contests and concerts.

Amazing ski and snowboard resorts

For some of us December means the beginning of the ski season and every time we see snow we can imagine the snowy peaks of spongy powder snow. In Europe the largest ski resort is located in France and is a set of three valleys, val Thorens, Les Menuires and val Méribel, that offers a total of 600 km of ski slopes. Another well recognised choice is the famous Zermatt ski station in Switzerland, where we can enjoy a unique panorama of landscape and 160 km of slopes of all levels.

In the United States the most famous tracks are those of Aspen in Colorado, with 103 kilometers of slopes with a medium to high difficulty, they are the perfect showcase for experts and wealthy well trained.

In Asia we can enjoy a winter holiday in the the Yongpyong resort in Korea, which is set to host the giant slalom and slalom events at the next year’s Winter Olympics. In Africa we have a mix of leisure with tiny ski resorts such as the Oukaïmeden in Morocco, that counts with 10 km of slopes, however those are really empty and will save us money and queues.

Stunning light shows before Christmas

Before Christmas the shows of lights, magic and circuses are part of the Christmas holidays and in some places of the world is really quite an experience. In Asia the most prominent one is Shiodome, it is located in Tokyo, Japan, and consists of a show that uses more than 220 thousand LED lights arranged in a natural landscape, created to make us dream.

If you’ve seen Christmas movies, you probably already know the Dyker Heights show in Brooklyn, New York. It consists in several streets that make up lights, poppies, nordic animals and all kinds of Christmas figures. In Europe we can enjoy the lights of Nice, which delivers every year a spectacular complex of light figures in Village de Noël at Place Masséna.

Best beach and sun holidays in winter

Winter can also be a time of relaxation for those who don´t feel the flow of Christmas, shopping and crowds and prefer to enjoy better climates and some peace. For this, beach destinations are the best option to recharge the batteries and start the new year with energy. Among the most requested for these dates is Cancun in Mexico, a natural area with kilometric beaches of crystal clear water, smaller agglomerations than in summer and all-inclusive vacation packages.

In Africa those who wish to escape completely from Christmas can relax on the beaches of Morocco, an interesting place full of Arabic history, bazaars and markets and especially a turning point for the holidays.

In Thailand the beach of  Khao Lak offers a natural spectacle of green mountains, a pale refreshing sun and beaches of turquoise water, well away from the most tourist destinations but with all the necessary amenities for foreign tourists. Australia, on the other hand, lives its splendid summer time in December and it could not be a better destination to escape from winter completely. It is possible to snorkel in the great barrier reef or to rent a camel in Broome, among other interesting choices.

Finally, in Europe the Canary Islands that belong to Spain are a unique option to enjoy a warm temperature, long sandy beaches and volcanic stone and an everyday tranquility of village life. Any of them will make us relax like never before.

Best hot springs for the winter holidays

Listening to the bubbling waters of a spa before getting a massage of essential oils under the shadow of a dim light is for many travelers a perfect way to spend a good holiday.

Some of the most famous hot springs in Europe are the Szechenyi Thermal Bath in Budapest, which has 18 swimming pools and The Blue Lagoon geothermal in Iceland, which is placed in a natural landscape. In Asia one of our favourite is places in Clark, Philippines, located at the base of an inactive volcano. The water is rich in volcanic minerals and the views are simply stunning.

In the United States one of the icons of thermal waters is the Goldstrike resort, which has the natural charm of being a small town of wooden houses, large natural pools and a lot of relaxation. In South Africa there are hundreds of hot springs scattered throughout the country and most of them are small in size, such as the famous one of Riemvasmaak.

All these winter holiday plans are comfortable for any traveler. What would be your favourite one for this holidays? Tell us or send us an image of your vacation to our instagram.

 

5 Apps that will give you peace of mind on this year’s Thanksgiving

Arriving late for Thanksgiving dinner can cause a significant negative start to an expected and tense day in equal parts, but the truth is that it happens very frequently. Bringing together the dispersed family throughout the country translates into almost 50 millions trips in just two days. Traffic jams, flight delays and cancellations are very common and taking them into account can help us prepare this party better.

Let your family know when you are arriving

To avoid the stress of trying to control something that is out of control, it is best to take the most of technology and share the location with the family on a private map temporarily, so they can see our path, if we are late and if we are fine during or journey.

Sharing the location in real time temporarily makes it possible to forget the noisy calls or endless conversations with the family asking what’s taking so long. It will also save you from taking risks driving and picking up the phone and having a fine.

Some apps already have this feature, and among them Wave Let’s Meet App stands out as a free app to share the live location privately between two or more people. Everyone could spot each other on the map and be ready for their arrival. Wave also counts with a complete chat with audios. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

Driving? Know when to stop

On the road, you will feel helpful to know when you have the nearest petrol station or restaurant to visit, since like you there are many others that will leave empty fuel stocks throughout the country. It never hurts to know where to stop in case of emergency. Among all the apps to choose your stop over our route, Roadtrippers informs you about the nearer stops along the way, good to visit, to relax or to sleep. It is available for free for iOS and Android.

Recipes for Thanksgiving

Suppose you don’t cook the turkey but your family has asked you to bring a plate of food and, apart from knowing how to boil some spaghetti or unfreeze a meatloaf, you have no idea where to start. First of all we advise against trying some haute cuisine because if it is your first time it will not go out as you wish. To see simple recipes and still impress your family, look at the Big Oven application, where you will see easy recipes with the list of ingredients separately to facilitate your way to the supermarket.

Plan the menu for Thanksgiving

You may be afraid that your little brother, who also does not stand out for his culinary skills, has chosen the same dish as you. Well, don´t be. Before thinking again about cooking extravagant dishes, open the Pepperplate application and share with others the recipe you are going to make. They can also share their plates and thus avoid repeating the cranberry sauce that only your grandmother will enjoy. Pepperplate application has a complete menu to plan the cooking times of all your dishes, make private and shared lists, lists of ingredients and tasks to excel in your planning and make it easier.

Share old memories

To smooth any thorny conversation you can always show a bunch of old pictures using the app Pic Collage application, a free app for iOS. It makes photo presentations, enlarge them, share and even project them on the TV screen. It also has the possibility to edit the pictures, ad stickers and fonts to explode your creativity. Everyone likes to remember with nostalgia some key moments and go back in time.

It is time to disconnect from the daily routine, work and worries and return to the family home to celebrate with the most loved ones a few days of tranquility, to catch up with the latest neighborhood gossip and above all, to savor a delicious homemade food. Enjoy it!

Travel solo woman tips

Travel alone: How to prepare a solo trip with the best apps and information

Traveling and getting to know new cultures is always inspiring, but if you also merge with the local tastes, the gastronomy and the public affairs, you will have acquired as souvenir a huge cultural and personal growth. There are several ways to travel as an expert and one of the most popular lately is to travel alone.

One of the reasons to travel solo is because it is considered a great experience of personal growth. It is also popular for those who have simply reached a point in their life of some economic calm, curiosity to travel and free time that they don´t share with their friends or partner.

The reasons are varied, but the experience is unique for each of the travellers. Traveling alone is a much more conscious act of moving, analysing other cultures and being aware of what happens around us, so we should be prepared for it.

You will have moments of loneliness, extravagant conversations and awkward moments with people, even times of frustration in which you won´t find the restaurant or the accommodation you wished. However, experts say that the advantages far outweigh the vicissitudes, such as the freedom to go wherever you want when you want, the need to leave your comfort zone and talk to local people, to understand their customs and the opportunity to mature and become strong and independent.

If you are going to start the adventure and travel solo the age or sex don’t really matter, as long as you consider some tips to make your trip easier. The technology in that case is your great ally, so take note of the following applications that you will need to carry on your smartphone.

Plan the solo trip beforehand

There are those who say that planning a trip is already part of the adventure and it might be true, because the organisation of holidays is a stage of discovery, illusion and many emotions. One of the apps that make it easier is Tripit, a complete directory in which to write all the destinations in the calendar along with the itineraries of flights and transportation, notes, tickets, budget and expenses to have in the end a great travel guide with all the details. The best part is that it works across all platforms.

Creators of Tripit say that in fact it’s like taking with you an assistant, because you can also see how to get to your hostel, send the information via social networks or see on the map what’s interesting near you. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

Locate yourself and your travel mates

Traveling alone is actually a very social experience, travellers are constantly getting to know people, whether they are from a hostel, people met on social networks and forums or just in the queue of some cultural attraction. In addition to friends, travellers will have interaction with receptionists, couchsurfing members, tour guides, travel agents and son on, therefore if you are in a new city it can be difficult to reach the agreed meeting point, recognise the person with whom you are meeting or find her/him in a crowded place.

To avoid these unpleasant situations, download Wave Application, a free app in which two or more people share their location in real time on a private map, so that they can follow each others’ steps and chat with them. It has millions of users worldwide and it is free for iOS and Android.

Know the good neighbourhoods

Strolling, getting lost in the crowd, passing through that rickety alley, ending up on the less touristy shore of Venice, discovering an abandoned monastery and a thousand other places are a delight reserved for travellers alone or for the more curious. That is, for those who have the time and the desire to wander without haste.

Something so simple can’t be done lightly though, not every city is going to go easy on us when it comes to the skin color, the gender, the way we dress or how we wear belongings and this sensation increases outside of the city centre. To cope with it, download Livesafe Map App, an app that analyses the main cities of the world and classifies its neighbourhoods as dangerous, dangerous for women, full of thieves and many other filters, so any traveler can always get lost in a safe place. It’s available for free for iOS and Android. 

Discover the city with your headphones

As a solo traveler, you probably are soaked with information tourist offices, forums and personal recommendations. A new and interesting way of discovering the cities through the headphones comes with the Detour app, an auditive tour guide that will tell you all the aspects of the cities in which you travel, from history, customs and politics, to curiosities, tourist attractions, gastronomy and other interesting facts. This app already has hundreds of cities and the list grows continuously. It’s available for free for Android and iOS.

Now you are all set, are you ready to try this new way of traveling the world? Let us know your thoughts and we wish you the best experience!

Top destinations in the world to travel in autumn

Going on holidays in autumn is a perfect way to live authentic changing landscapes around the globe, while enjoying a mild and warm weather and low prices. This season is almost free of festivities, despite of Thanksgiving, and traveling could be a good choice to take the most out of the season.

At this time going out with a bicycle, hiking or just enjoying a vibrant local culture is such a good experience, framed in red and yellow leaves everywhere. Whether it is a flowery festival in Japan, an adventure trip around Australia or a lifetime festival in New Orleans, we have it covered. Autumn is the perfect time to take the backpack, boots, camera and go out exploring the world. Do not worry about the destination, we have selected the best places in each continent to visit this fall and live a dream vacation.

Africa

Buthan is an African country with forests that occupy a 60% of its land. That offers many possibilities for nature lovers who want to trek on authentically natural terrain, go climbing, cycling or stargazing as they could not do in any part of the urbanized world is a perfect destination for this fall.

It has recently been highlighted by National Geographic as one of their favorite autumn destinations, when it celebrates two international festivals in which to taste all African traditions. Thimphu Tshechu takes place over the first week of October with traditional dances, local music, invited artists and masked balls. Black-Necked Crane Festival takes place on November 11 due to the migration and arrival of the Black-necked Crane and it is a unique experience to see the wild fauna while traveling in autumn.

Asia

The arrival of autumn is lived with different intensity in different parts of the world, however there are places where the love for plants and flowers is almost sacred as it happens in Japan. One of the most idyllic places to enjoy the colorful nature is the temple of Toshogu, surrounded by a natural park.

However, autumn is the best time of year to visit this authentic natural environment near the North Pole, as the Northern Lights begin, when the sky dyes green as a result of the reflection of light. It is the time when the days are lengthened and still not too cold, bearing in mind that temperatures are above 0 degrees celsius.
