Solo Travel Destinations Off the Beaten

Always looking for new solo travel destinations, I followed a friend’s suggestion to try Slovenia. Traveling alone, the prices were good, and Slovenia provided options for hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter or just exploring its history/culture year-round. Having been to former Yugoslavia’s Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia, Slovenia made sense as the next step.

After arriving in Zurich, I discovered my flight to the capital city, Ljubljana, had been cancelled. However, I was quickly accommodated and dispatched to Germany for a connecting flight. On arrival, a fellow passenger and I watched forlornly while the door on our flight closed leaving us behind. Not to worry, I was reticketed on a flight to Austria. I arrived hours before the next scheduled flight to Slovenia. As I waited to make it to my fifth country in 18 hours, I kept my eyes glued to the jet way. I was afraid I would fall asleep, miss the flight and be sent to a 6th country.

It was well worth the journey. Ljubljana’s historic area was a surprise as it looked more like Vienna than the Balkans. My Art Nouveau choice, the Grand Hotel Union Executive, combined style

Luxury Travel Destinations

“An experience is etched in our minds due to the value returned”

I look at the dollars in my wallet to determine where I am going next, what activity should be first on the list or at least moved up and if what I am hungry for is nearby. Should we go to the water or inland to explore waterfalls? Should we drive up a winding mountain road or ride the tram?

Sure a camera can capture scenes for future reflection but receiving value that was unanticipated etches a memory, there to recall with any conversation regarding the trip. Think back to your most remembered trips. What is the memory recalled? Why are you able to recall it?

Experiences are the main reasons we vacation. Why we choose to go to many of the destinations is so something new or unusual will occur to improve our moods. But many times we find certain costs prohibitive to an over-reaching experience.

Here is what I am speaking of; if you are going to any destination for one week, hoping to experience the lifestyle of the area, visit several sites of interest and enjoy the local foods. If the

Thailand Such a Popular Travel Destination

Thailand, or the “Land of Smiles”, as it is also called, is one of the most popular tourist destinations. When you ask someone what are his top travel destinations, Thailand will often be the answer. What makes Thailand such a popular tourist destination? We will see that there are quite a few contributing factors that make Thailand such a popular country.

First of all, Thailand isn’t called the “Land of Smiles” for nothing; there is a good reason why it has that name. Thailand has the reputation of being a country that is extremely hospitable for tourists. Thais are such nice people, always smiling and trying to help whenever they can. They are genuinely interested and have at heart that everyone who visit’s Thailand enjoys their stay.

Worldwide Travel Destinations

For anyone interested in seeing incredible worldwide travel destinations, assignments are a great way to do (and get paid for it!) I have had half a dozen jobs over the years simply because of their location and/or travel perks. Here are some positions that will help improve your vagabonding:

Rafting guides. Many companies realize this is not a lifetime calling, so they are open to training rookies. You can sign up for a class, and be certified to lead trips within six weeks. For those looking for more than a summer job, you can always jet down to the southern hemisphere (Chile and New Zealand are popular choices) for another term.

Flight Attendant. While I lack the patience for this position, the travel perks are extraordinary. How many people end their work day on another continent? Generally, airlines will comp travel for their own, and other providers offer a standard half off discount for attendants. A word to the wise: don’t expect the Indiana Jones special routes right away. Only attendants who have moved up the ladder a bit get the long haul flights. If you’re new to the industry, you can expect short distance trips for at

American Travel Destinations

South American travel destinations are growing in popularity, and offer the travel some unique ecological and cultural places of interest. We chose Latin America because we love the food and culture of Latin America.

We began traveling to Mexico in the early 1970’s as kids, way before the million dollar condo projects…or roads for that matter. As adults we continued vacationing in Mexico and often traveled with our kids. It was really a natural extension for us to push further south and include Central America and South America in our travel plans.

There are many great South American travel sites, we only include a few here that our family hopes to visit. All of these are easily visited by arranging the trip yourself or tour companies will have these available in their South America travel packages.

Amazon

Visiting the Amazon is on the list of everyone that travels to South America. Beginning in Peru, the Amazon winds its way out of the Andes through many South American countries and through Northern Brazil before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean.

The Amazon is one of the most exotic places on earth, and is home to
