Comments Off on Tips to Travel Stress-Free

Summary: Traveling can get hectic but there are some simple tips that can make the entire process a little smoother.

Traveling can be a very eye-opening and rewarding experience. Having the opportunity to go outside of the area you live in can give you the chance to learn more about the world. You can learn about a different culture, a new language, different kinds of cuisine people eat, and another way of living. Unfortunately, you likely know just how expensive and stressful the act of traveling can be. Since the destination usually makes the work worth it, there are some simple tips you can follow to make traveling around that much easier to do.

Book Ahead of Time

The longer you wait to make accommodations, the more likely you are to run into problems. If you know when you will have free time, then it would be worth it to make reservations ahead of time. For instance, ordering a car with driver in Amman Jordan before you land can help you make sure you get the right vehicle. This will also give you time to compare different businesses.

Pack Early

On the topic of taking action ahead of time, you should also handle packing early. At the very least, you should start a packing list and take inventory of what you have. The reason why this is important is because it will let you know what you are missing and it will also let you cut your inventory down to what you really need. Car rental companies like Monte Carlo Rent A Car, LLC charge more for larger vehicles, so bringing too much can limit your options.

If you’ve had your fill of Paris’ famed tarts and pastries, head on over to the Angelina Tearoom on rue de Rivoli. While the tearoom is best known for its luxury hot chocolate and signature Mont-Blanc pastry, it keeps a lesser-known secret: its ice cream sundaes are divine!

The Angelina Tearoom offers a variety of sundaes, but the Coupe Mont-Blanc should be your best bet. This scrumptious dessert is made of meringues, chestnut ice cream, vanilla ice cream, candied chestnut shreds, and whipped cream. The chestnut ice cream is the highlight of this frozen treat. Being earthy and sweet at the same time, its flavor profile is so unique to ice cream that each bite is a delight. Every other ingredient, most especially the candied chestnut shreds, does wonders to elevate the entire experience.

If you prefer a more conservative option, the Coupe Rivoli may be just the thing you need. Apart from the meringues, vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream that’s also present in the Coupe Mont-Blanc, the Coupe Rivoli features the famed Angelina Hot Chocolate along with a serving of its equally rich chocolate ice cream. This luscious combination is something any chocolate lover would relish.

If sundaes seem too much for you, you can always go for plain ice cream. At the Angelina Tea House, you can enjoy either 2 or 3 flavors with a whipped cream topping. Among their best flavors are caramel au beurre salé (salted caramel), pistache pure de Sicile (pure Sicilian pistachio), and noisette du Piémont (Piedmont hazelnut). Nevertheless, there’s really no bad choice for desserts at the Angelina Tearoom. Just pick one and enjoy!

How to Keep Your Rental Car Safe

Comments Off on How to Keep Your Rental Car Safe

Summary: Rental cars can be extremely convenient for travelers but they could also be targeted from thieves and robbers.

 

Figuring out how you will get around the city when you are out traveling, whether that be for vacation or for business, can be one of the more stressful decisions you will need to make when out of town. While public transportation or ride share services might be popular options, renting a car can give travelers much more freedom with where and when they choose to travel.

 

That being said, running into problems with your rental car can be quite serious. Since you do not own the car and are simply renting it from a company, you need to be prepared to handle whatever problem comes your way in a speedy and effective manner. Keeping your rental car in good condition is crucial, if you want to avoid additional fees with the rental car company.

 

Avoid Questionable Areas

 

Depending on where you are, you might find yourself struggling to find a decent parking spot. Even if there is plenty of parking available, refrain from leaving your monthly car rental in Abu Dhabi in a sketchy area. Areas without much lighting or traffic are prime locations for thieves looking to steal cars, because the chances of them getting caught are much lower. Even if it takes more time to find parking or you have to pay to use a private lot, you need to make keeping your new rental car in great condition a priority.

 

Do Not Hesitate to Speak Up

 

If you feel like there is a major problem with the car, do not continue to operate the vehicle. This could potentially worsen the problem, leading to higher repair fees when you return the car. Rather, you should get a hold of the rental company as soon as possible. Rental businesses like Monte Carlo Rent A Car, LLC will give you rundowns on how to get around safely and advice on what to do if an emergency situation arises.

Traveling 101: Backpacking Essentials for the Newcomer

Comments Off on Traveling 101: Backpacking Essentials for the Newcomer

Summary: When traveling around with just the items in your backpack you want to be certain you have all you will need throughout your travels.

 

When traveling for fun there are a number of approaches you can take. When comfort is your main priority, you can travel in airplanes, stay in nice resorts, and keep all of your belongings in a spacious suitcase. Backpacking is a different way of traveling, where all of the items you can expect to need are kept within just a backpack.

 

If you are going across the country or are heading out on a hiking trip to watch the sunrise from atop the mountains, there are some essentials you will want to keep with you at all times.

 

Protecting Your Body

 

When you are outside walking around for potentially hours at a time you need to think about how you can protect your body from the elements. Items such as sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, bandanas, and lip balm could shield you from the sun and prevent burns. At the end of each day use soap to get accumulated dirt and sweat out of your hair and pores. Moisturizing is also critical, because the heat and wind can dry your skin out throughout the day.

 

For cold nights invest in jackets and pants to keep your body warm. When you are sleeping outdoors you will need to be wise about how you can stay comfortable.

 

Getting Around

 

Even though you will likely have your phone on you there is no guarantee that you will have cell service wherever you go. Go old school with a map and compass to help you get around and know where you are, no matter the conditions.

Central Park Zoo

The intimacy and accessibility are the draws for the Central Park Zoo, which was the zoo in the animated hit “Madagascar.”

How to Stay Safe When Travelling Abroad

Comments Off on How to Stay Safe When Travelling Abroad

Summary: Safety should always be your number one concern if you’re planning a trip overseas.

If you’re planning a trip abroad, get ready for one of the most memorable trips of your life. Not only will you be meeting new people and participating in a bunch of new activities, but you’ll also experience the culture and lifestyle of a new country. However, one should always be cautious when they travel as there can be safety concerns. Here are some tips that’ll keep you safe and sound.

Always be Ready With Documentation

Before you depart, be sure to make copies of your passport, medical card, credit cards, and itinerary. All of these play a crucial role in having a smooth trip. You can give a copy to a friend or family member back home while also having one on you. Email all the important details to yourself so you can access it if you forget to do something.

A common travel tip that many people do is store a $20 folded under the sole of your shoe in the case of an emergency.

Don’t Be Loud and Obnoxious

Sure, you might come from a city that’s less reserved and is accustomed to people that love to be outspoken. However, don’t let this personality translate when you cross the border. You might be doing something that’ll piss off people without you even knowing it. Always stay mild-mannered, especially in areas that value tradition and culture. The next place you might find yourself is in a police station being questioned about things that you aren’t even associated with. Or worse, you could even be jailed.

The Top Precautions to Take When Renting a Car Abroad

Comments Off on The Top Precautions to Take When Renting a Car Abroad

Summary: Following these tips can help you save a significant amount of money and time.

Once you’ve finalized your car hire in Jordan, or whichever country you’re planning on visiting, be sure that you take the following precautions and inspect the car before driving off. These little tips could end up saving you money – and even your life.

Quick Inspection

While you may not want to spend hours looking at every detail of the car, be sure that you check the essentials like: oil and windshield wiper fluid, tire pressure, paint job, stains, and interior damage. If you notice some damage that’s visible, be sure to take a picture and record it so you don’t end up being charged by the rental company for something you didn’t even do.

Fuel Levels

Rental companies are known for charging high rates for refilling the tank. Before you depart, be sure that you have a full tank on your end. Also, be sure to read their policy on what you need to return the car with. Even the slightest showing that the fuel is under what they consider is optimal could end up costing you in extra fees. Don’t let this happen to you.

Check the Glove Compartment

One of the last things you might do is check the glove compartment for a copy of the car registration, but it’s one of the most important things you need to take care of before you leave. If you’re stopped by the local police, chances are you’ll need that registration to avoid any problems. Every business that does car rentals in Jordan will have a registration paper available for you – just confirm it’s in there before you leave.

Bio: If you’re looking for a short term leasing car in Amman Jordan, look no further than the experts at Monte Carlo Rent a Car, LLC. Their low prices and wide selection are what makes them the best in the business.

Day Hike in Europe Gear List

Comments Off on Day Hike in Europe Gear List

You’re off on a day hike in Europe. The most important question is what to pack and how to stay comfortable. This advice from Dev Randhawa will help.

First, consider:

  • How long does the hike take on average?
  • What is the altitude gain?
  • What is the weather forecast?
  • Will you be hiking by yourself?

Here are some tips for what to bring to stay warm, dry and happy when you’re out on a day hike.

  • A day pack is the most essential piece of equipment for any hike.
  • Water bottle, preferably with a loop in it to secure to the outside of your pack.
  • Besides lunch and a fruit, bring along some nuts and chocolate for energy.
  • Band-aids and antiseptic ointment in case of minor cuts and blisters.
  • A charged cell phone in case you get lost.
  • Camera
  • Small notepad and pen
  • Comfortable hiking shoes or boots, depending on the terrain of the hike.
  • Two pairs of socks. Wearing two pairs of socks protects against blisters. If you are wearing boots, it’s extremely helpful to have one thin pair of socks for sweat-absorption underneath a thicker pair of socks that can be pulled up over your ankles.
  • Comfortable trousers, zip-off trousers or long shorts that do not constrain your waist.
  • A long sleeved shirt to protect against the sun, and a hat to protect your head and ears from too much sun.
  • No matter what the weather looks like when you leave, pack a lightweight fleece and a lightweight rain jacket for inevitable sudden weather changes.
