    • From: kwilson048
    • Description:

       

      Adult mountaineers have the prestige of reaching the Uhuru Peak, Mount Kilimanjaro’s summit which is the highest peak in Africa. But who says the Mount Kilimanjaro’s adventure is only for adults? Hiking Mount Kilimanjaro can be a child’s dream adventure with the once in a lifetime experience. Rising from the East African plains, the mountain is a popular tourist destination with the promise of treating its visitors the chance of watching the spectacular view of the glaciers on the summit with a breathtaking experience of watching the sun rise over the beautiful landscape.

      Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro With Children.jpg

      The Mount Kilimanjaro hike can be a great family adventure where parents can take their kids with them for a fun mountain trekking activity. Children below 10 years old however can hike up to 12,000 feet only. Only children 10 years and older may be admitted by the Tanzanian part authorities to climb the summit. Climbing the mountain can be a special bonding experience of children who are up to a climbing adventure with their parents. If you are planning to take your child with you it is possible to arrange the trip with the following tips and considerations:

      Prepare your child prior to the trip

      Preparing your child physically and mentally is very important. Make sure to give your child a briefing on what to expect during the activity. Make sure to buy them the appropriate equipment. Let your child wear it to get the feel of using the equipment to prepare them during the actual hike. It helps to let your child watch some videos on how it looks like to be there and what challenges to expect. It is important to ensure that you child is fit and well for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and you may find the need to obtain a medical clearance from your child’s pediatrician to be 100% sure they are physically ready for it.

      If you plan of taking your children with you up to the summit, you should consider the weather, the physical condition of your child and be realistic on what your child can achieve. The change in altitude can also cause some altitude sickness on your child thus you should prepare them prior to your planned trip.

      Plan your trip itinerary

      Children who are older than 10 years old have the opportunity of reaching the Roof of Africa or the mountain’s summit called the Uhuru Peak. There are different routes to get to the summit which is also an important consideration when climbing the summit with children. It is best to discuss with your travel guide about your route options to reach to the mountain summit. The Lemosho route is highly recommended to travelers with children because it takes a longer time to hike, giving longer time for acclimatization in the body to take place at uniktour.com/fr/voyage-kilimandjaro. You may also prefer to go with outfitters offering private toilets to make your child comfortable throughout the hike.

      Taking children with you to climb the Mount Kilimanjaro can cause some trouble along the way but the quality of bonding moments with them is priceless. It usually takes timely preparation in order to ensure that you get to hike the mountain with your children with less stress and worries.

  • 10 Luxury Family Holiday Desti 10 Luxury Family Holiday Destinations 2014

    • From: dharmender
    • Description:

      As travel to the four corners of the world has become more accessible, an abundance of choice has been created for the family traveller. Yet at the same time as the globe opens up, the options available for a rarefied experience narrow. 

      For family holiday makers in search of luxury, the chance to provide their children with culturally rich excursions that expand their world view are proving to be key drivers in determining choice. To help, here is a list of ten destinations that offer children and adults alike the chance to indulge in the luxury of experience in the maximum of comfort. 

      Barbados 

      The culture the exotic island of Barbados is defined by is its West African, British and Indian historical legacy. This ensures that cricket, afternoon tea and Christianity remain staple passions of the local Bajans, who need no excuse to proudly boast of the fact that there are more churches than bars on the island. 

      The aesthetic too is shaped by this legacy, as the old stone churches and sugar plantations characterise the scenery of this Caribbean gem as much as the glorious white sandy beaches and dreamy ocean views. In terms of luxury hotels, Sandy Lane provides a plethora of activities and facilities to cater for every family need. 
       

      Dubai 

      As recently as 20 years ago, Dubai as we know it simply didn’t exist. Now, however, it’s a bustling ever-changing metropolis set in the heart of the Persian Gulf. A destination of complete opposites, the tranquillity of the desert close by provides a taste of traditional Arabia that is of stark contrast to the ultra-modern shopping malls and extravagant opulence found in the city. 

      Excursions and activities for the whole family are integrated into Dubai’s vibrant tourist economy. For example, one of the most expensive and extravagant hotels found anywhere in the world, the Burj al Arab, now runs the the Jumeirah project; a turtle rehabilitation programme that in its final stage allows children to release the reinvigorated reptiles back into the sea. 

      Egypt 

      Since the dawn of its ancient civilisation Egypt is a country that has been synonymous with luxury. And with its wide range of world class hotels and facilities, this statement is as true today as it ever was. 

      For family travellers looking to indulge into the rich history of Egypt, the city of Luxor provides the ideal central location to plan your adventures from, with the Valley of the Kings nearby. Similarly, as Egypt is home to two of the Seven Wonders of the World in the form of The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the timeless options for families in search of cultural enrichment are plentiful. 

      France 

      From the romance of Paris right through to the mountainous vistas of the Alps, France is home to a rich and varied landscape. In terms of culture, food and drink is central to the way of life. Therefore France is the perfect country to refine the palette of young and old, with dynamic markets, top class restaurants and hidden eateries aplenty.      

      The Evian resort, just 3km away from the gorgeous Lake Geneva on the Swiss border, provides a fantastic family choice regarding accommodation. For more information on the Evian resort and the activities on offer there, visitwww.totstoo.com/destinations. An additional consideration for those with a very young family intent on embarking on a foreign holiday is the relatively short travel times between the UK and destinations in France. 

      Italy 

      An expedition to Italy offers families a varied spectrum of classical ruins, impressive architecture and fine food, that as a collective represent an amalgamation of culture and history which any place in the world will struggle to compete with. 

      Venice and Florence are just two of many cities that offer a multitude of iconic and beautiful experiences. Whilst Lake Garda which resides within the foothills of the beautiful Dolomites, presents a package of gorgeous hotels, stunning scenery and outdoor pursuits to satisfy even the most demanding of luxury family holiday makers. 

      The United Kingdom 

      For those families with a large brood, travelling abroad in search of a luxury experience can be a daunting and stressful experience. This is why many are choosing keep their holiday plans restricted to local shores, as destinations can be reached simply by jumping in a car or on a train. 

      Rural escapes like the Yorkshire Moors, the Cotswolds and the Jurassic Coast provide rugged and beautiful landscapes full of adventure and opportunity for exploration. Furthermore, cities such as London and Liverpool offer vibrant, multicultural environments that provide an illustration of what defines modern Britain.  

      Seychelles 

      Even though the land mass is small, the Seychelles landscape is diverse, encompassing mountains, tropics, coral islands and  isolated beaches that are the epitome of paradise. For tourists that hold nature close to their hearts, the islands are home to the world renownedCousin Island Special Reserve, a national park teeming with wildlife that is famed for its approach to conservation and eco-tourism. 

      As tourism is the lifeblood of the island, there is a number of beautiful and facility laden hotels and resorts optimised for family comfort. All things considered, the Seychelles offers a unique opportunity for families to explore and absorb the rarest of things; paradise on earth. 

      Finnish Lapland 

      It’s not just the prospect of seeing Father Christmas that makes Finnish Lapland a magical family holiday prospect. Situated near the Arctic Circle, the country is one of the few places on earth that is ideal for viewing the spectacular skies that the Northern Lights produce. 

      Surrounded by amazing alpine surrounding, Hotel Kakslauttanen presents the perfect winter bolthole complete with a range of family-centric activities nearby. These include snow rides led by both huskies and reindeers that traverse icy roads and a possible visit toSanta’s resort.

      It goes without saying that for the best experience families should visit during the festive period, and although this will be expensive, children will be provided with an experience they will never forget. 

      Oman 

      Sweeping deserts and idyllic coastlines provide the unadulterated beauty that has seen Oman fittingly referred to as the Jewell of Arabia. Juxtaposing modernity and tradition the country of Oman delivers a holiday experience that is unique to anywhere in the world. Although because of the extreme heat experienced in the summer months, the best time to visit Oman is between October and March. 

      The influx of wealth to the country has ensured that holidaymakers are able to enjoy access to an innumerable range of world-class, child-friendly facilities, which include resorts, shopping districts, attractions and hotels that cater for every family need conceivable. The most accessible part of the Oman coast resides near the capital of Muscat, where there is the opportunity to embark on dolphin watching tours that will cast each generation in a state of awe and provide an unforgettable experience.  

      Greece 

      For children who are old enough to appreciate it, a visit to Greece offers the chance to appreciate the uniquely rich cultural heritage of a country that has shaped much of what continues to define western civilisation. 

       

      Made up of over 2,000 islands, Greece includes golden sandy beaches, seafront taverns and amazing hotels, including Westin Resort Costa Navarino. From here families can engage in water sports and other activities, as well as using it as a hub for nearby excursions which take in the countries rich historical legacy.

  • Greatest Small Town in America Greatest Small Town in America -- Fort Scott Kansas

      When I saw Budget Travel's vote for favorite small town of America, I immediately thought of my 2011 visit to Fort Scott Kansas. Our family was making a cross-country trek from Michigan to California and we happened to stop in Fort Scott for a few days to relax and recharge for the drive ahead. We ended up staying for three days and enjoyed every minutes. One of the most highly recommended small towns in America.
      There are about 8000 residents in Fort Scott but the town played an important part of the history of setting the Western United States. There are several interesting sites in and near Fort Scott including venues of historical, cultural and environmental interest. After our visit, we felt as though we'd seen some real Americana.  
      Fort Scott Fort and the National Cemetery
      Fort Scott played an important role in the settlement of the West. It was built in 1842 as an outpost for troops who enforced the uneasy peace between the settlers and the Osage Indians. Westbound travelers could fill up on provisions at the fort before they set out on their journey along the Santa Fe Trail. As the Civil War loomed the troops tried to separate the pro-slave and anti-slave activists in the newly-formed state of Kansas. When the war did break out Fort Scott became a Quartermaster's Supply Deposit, as well as the training base of the First Kansas Colored Infantry -- a unit that took part in multiple battles and suffered more casualties than any other Kansas regiment. The Fort Scott National Historic Site, operated by the National Parks Service, offers a view into the frontier days including the original fort's buildings. Guided tours are offered twice daily (11:00a.m. and 13:00pm.) during the summer months by costumed guides who provide a full explanation of the type of life the early soldiers and residents of Fort Scott experienced.  The fort is located south of I54 on Market Street near the city center. (620) 223-0310  
      Abraham Lincoln inaugurated the Fort Scott National Cemetery as a military cemetery in 1865 when it was already serving as the final resting place of hundreds of Union and Confederate soldiers as well as for troops that had been killed during the pre-Civil War period. After its establishment as a National Cemetery the remains of other soldiers who had been buried throughout Kansas and Missouri were brought to the Fort Scott cemetery for reinternment. These included black Union soldiers of the First Colored Infantry. In the northeast corner of the cemetery visitors can see memorial markers which honor soldiers whose remains were not recovered or identified including WWII flight crews.
      Gordon Parks Museum
      Gordon Parks was born and raised in Fort Scott. Many people remember him as the director of the movie "Shaft" but before his movie career he was a recognized photographer whose work was featured in a number of photoessays for well-known newspapers and magazines, including for Life Magazine. Parks photographed celebrities and fashion models but his best-known works showcased the black experience of the South in the pre-Civil War era. The Gordon Parks Museum is located in Fort Scott. Many of Parks' photos, which brought the reality of Southern racism and black poverty to the public conscious, are exhibited in the museum. The Gordon Parks Museum is situated in the Mercy Health Center, located at the southern edge of Fort Scott just off US Highway 69. Entrance is free. The museum is open daily from 7:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.   620-223-7036
      Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls
      The Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls offer a quiet step into nature. Located just three miles West of Fort Scott, travelers can either hike to the waterfalls from Fort Scott or drive there and leave their car in the park's parking lot that's located on the side of the road. There's a short trail down to the waterfalls from the park where first one, and then a little further on two more, waterfalls spill off from the Rock Creek Lake into the Marmaton River.  When the water is low it's possible to walk across the stream at the bottom waterfall. To access the Rock Creek Waterfalls park, drive out of Fort Scott on 19th Street which soon changes to "Kansas Road" and then again to "195th Street." The park's parking lot is at the north edge of Rock Creek Lake.  Cross the bridge over the dam to reach the waterfalls.
      Lowell Milken Center
      The Lowell Milken Center was established in 2007 as an educational institution which is dedicated to promoting high level scholastic achievements in America's schools. The Center was established when two educators, Norman Conrad and Lowell Milken, decided to collaborate on a concept that would encourage students to create well-researched, high-quality research projects about unsung heroes -- people who had acted in an exceptional manner to benefit mankind but whose efforts had not been recognized. The Center is located on Fort Scott's Main Street. Featured unsung hero subjects include journalists, environmentalists, humanitarians and others.  (620) 223-9991 
      Fort Scott's Good Old Days
      We happened to visit Fort Scott during their annual three-day "Good Old Days" festival which takes place over the course of one weekend every June. The Festival brings fun and good cheer to the town with a crafts fair, rides, a Dock Dogs competition (people bring their dogs and encourage the dogs to jump off a dock into a pool of water as they try to catch a toy in the air.  The dog that jumps the farthest, wins), street dances, carnival food and drinks, live entertainment and more.

  • Turin, Italy Turin, Italy

    • From: SaraElizabethTravels
    • Description:

      torino.jpg

      When arriving by plane to Turin, you’ll be landing at the Aeroporto di Torino. Unless you want to take a cab(which would cost about 30-40 euros), the SADAM bus(about 7 euros one-way) is the cheapest way to get to the city center. If you want the get to the center of the city, you’ll get off at the Porta Nuova Railway Station. I studied abroad in Turin for 4 months, so I was very aware of the metro, train and bus schedules. If you plan on staying in Turin for a week or more, it may be smart to get a settimanale(weekly) or mensile(monthly) metro/bus ticket. You can pick one of those up at any Tabaccheria(tobbaco shop), but be mindful, sometimes they don’t carry them. So remember to ask if they know the closest place that sells them. Also, if you find an information booth, get a map! I still used one after months of living there.

            Now in Turin, there are many cafes, pizza places, kebabs, and other various food places. The first pizza place I went to was Primaepoi which is on Via Giovanni Battista Viotti, near Via Roma. This was the first thing I ate when I arrived to Turin and was surprised. The pizza was so fresh, but not in a greasy cheesy way. Everything was perfect, from the vegetables to the crust. Be prepared to eat what you get, because it you ask for a “to go” box, you will get looks from the waiter and everyone around you. “To Go” is a very American thing and you won’t find many places that do it. On that note, I would have to say that my favorite cafe(with “to go” cups) while I was in Turin, was definitely Busters Coffee on Via Cesare Battisti. Before we had wifi in the apartment, I would go there to do my work, blog and get ahold of family and friends through Skype. I would always get a chuckle, cause they would have signs saying “American breakfast/coffee” and as I read it, it reminded me how much more we eat then Europeans do. They would make amazing drinks and I was a fan on their shakes/smoothies. I would be so tempted to get a pastry, because they display it so well! My favorite kebab place was the Casa Del Kebab 12which is across the street from the 8 Gallery Lingotto. I know you didn’t go to Italy to go to the mall, but trust me, you’ll want to check it out. I still regret not buying more from these stores while I was there, because the fashion there is about 2yrs ahead of the US stores. My favorite stores were Cache Cache & Tally Weijl. When I needed groceries(that I couldn’t get at the outside marketplace), I would go to Pam, which was in the mall, but you had to go outside to enter the store. I would always find some awesome deals on poultry, fish and dairy there. While you’re in the area, you should cross the street to experience Eataly. From wheels of cheese to barrels of wine, it was a true Italian experience in one store. I know there are stores in the US now, but I would describe it as the Italian version of Wegmans. Now on the outside of the mall, if you walk towards the parking lot in the back, you’ll be able to see the Olympic Arch of Turin(bottom right corner of the photos). If you have time to cross the bridge, do it. It’s so interesting knowing that amazing athletes walked this bridge and many couples have left their mark on locks on the chain fences. I didn’t have my camera with me when I went over the bridge, but I won’t lie, I was a tad scared. The Olympic village was a ghost town. There was graffiti on the buildings and whenever the wind hit certain parts of the buildings/walkways, it just reminded you of a horror movie. I wish we could find uses to the old Olympic villages, instead of leaving them there to deteriorate. 

            While in Turin, you need to visit Porta Palazzo. If you’re walking down Via Settembre, it’s a straight shot to it. When I lived there I was across the street from a store called Tiger. I think that’s where all my money went towards honestly! It’s just a cute store that’s filled with the most random of things. You could get large packets of loose leaf teas, luggage tags/flying items, cute little toys/games, toiletries, cards, spices, candles, a bottle of champagne and etc. Still hoping we get them in the US soon! So continuing, on you’re way down the street, you’ll go past the busy and store-filled Via Giuseppe Garibaldi. On that street, you can find stores like Promod, Nike, L’Occitane Provence and an amazing gelato place called GROM. Further down, you’ll find yourself in an open space with a church to your right. If you have time, you must visit the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. If you haven’t heard about the Holy Shroud, you need to read up and go inside! There’s a replica of the shroud inside the church, but every 5 years or so they display the real one to the public. Continuing down the road, to the left you’ll see a dog park. This was my favorite part of going to the marketplace, because every time I missed my dogs, I would just walk to the park and the dogs would attack me with kisses! Once you hit the end of the grassy park, you turn left and walk down the street until you walk into the market. Now mind you, be very careful about your wallet or purse. There are gypsies and pick-pockets everywhere and there is barely any space for you to walk since it’s so busy. When you first walk in, there’s a walkway near the front where I would get the best prices for onions, carrots & potatoes(1 Euro for 2-3 kilos). Of course I will admit it, girls, if you smile & flirt with the sellers, you get more! Every time I went down to this guy’s booth, he would remember me and automatically knew what I wanted, put it in 2 bags, and gave me a great deal. Remember, you have to go through the whole thing to find the best prices for food. There was also a pizza booth and pastry booth that I went to every other week and both of those people spoke a bit of English. Not going to lie, the pastries were my favorite part! You had to make sure to get there early or all the best ones would be gone. I also bought a few scarves down at the market and still to this day get compliments on them! Now, the marketplace is not open on Sunday mornings because it turns into one big garage sale. From bikes to american dollars, there is a bunch of random stuff for sale. Most of the people here don’t speak Italian, so it’s harder to communicate with them. I was actually able to talk a guy down and bought a twin reflex camera for a good price. The coolest part is that the camera says on the side that it was made in the USSR. It’s my favorite film camera to date!

            Now for the art/music fanatics, you have a good amount of choices. Just walking down the streets, mainly near the piazzas(squares), you’ll hear street musicians and see street entertainers. If you’re interested in seeing some history, you should check out the Museo Egizio(Egypt Museum), Armeria Reale(Royal Armoury), Museo di Antichità(Antiques Museum) & Palazzo Reale di Torino(The Royal Palace of Turin). While I was there, I was able to see a Henri Cartier-Bresson gallery show at thePalazzo Reale. As a photographer, it was a once in a lifetime event(Especially since I got to go to a da Vinci show outside of Turin and saw his original sketches/artwork!). Another museum you need to go to it the Museo Nazionale del Cinema(The National Cinema Museum), which is inside the Mole Antonelliana. Inside you’ll see props, clips from movies, costumes and so on. I think the cutest part is the viewing room that has the multiple toilets as the seating area. At the bottom level, there’s an lift that brings you all the way up to the top of the Mole. It’s scary as heck if you’re afraid of heights, because the lift is transparent, so if you’re scared of height, DO NOT LOOK DOWN! When you exit the lift, you’ll get a 360° view of the city and the Alps. Honestly, it’s totally worth the money, because it was so memorable! The photos I took while up there were unreal. For the music buffs, if you’re around the area during a concert or performance, you should go see one at the Teatro Regio diTorino or the Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino. If you’re there around the end of April/beginning of May, you should check out the Torino Jazz Festival. I got to see Dionne Warwick and she was amazing! Another event to go to(and you would have to look into it) is the Chocolate Festival. All I can say is “Chocolate…..sooooo much chocolate!”. I believe it was near the end of February, but don’t quote me on that. I spent a lot of money on sweets, but there are also lots of freebies! It is truly a chocolate lover’s dream getaway. 

            I hope this helped a bit. I know Turin isn’t as fancy and popular as Florence, Milan or Rome….but it’s worth the trip! If you want more suggestions, you should check out Lonely Planet.com, since that’s how I survived Italy. I would read their book about Italy almost every single night!

  • 4 Ways to Better Organize Your 4 Ways to Better Organize Your International Move

    • From: mgibson8
    • Description:

      Moving is not something that many people relish. There are just too many things to do and never enough time to get them all done, particularly if you are relocating overseas. If you are planning an international move, staying organized is essential. Here are 4 tips that will help you to better organize your move and make it as stress-free as possible.

      1.    Make lots of lists – In order to really get organized you will need to make lists – for everything. You will have arrangements to make for the movers, the moving trucks, closing out bank accounts, shutting off your utilities, paying your old debts and on and on. The best way to handle all of these tasks is to begin with a list of things that you have to do. Make a checklist and then go through it, checking things off as you complete them.

      2.    Pack a travel bag – You are certainly going to need a few personal items with you when you arrive at your new international location. Before you pack away all of your clothing and other essentials, take the time to pack a bag of necessities to take with you on your trip. Things like socks and underwear, a few days’ worth of clothes, makeup and toiletries will make you much less stressed out when you arrive at your new location.

      3.    Pay off bills – This should be done long before your actual move. If you pay off your bills before you leave your current country then you will have one less worry following you to your new location. Make sure that you take care of utility bills when you leave and pay up credit cards and other monthly bills at least a month or so in advance to keep from worrying about them when you arrive.

      4.    Get your paperwork together – If you are moving for work you will need to ensure that all of your paperwork is in order. Regardless of whether or not work is involved you will want to be certain that you have passports, visas and other needed documents on hand for the move. Make sure that you also take the time to change your address with creditors, banks, investment companies, insurance companies and anyone else that you make regular payments to.

      There is nothing that will take all of the stress out of relocating to an international location but by following these few tips you can make the process run a bit more smoothly. Make your lists and begin checking things off as you do them. You will soon find it is time to begin unpacking in your new home and you will wonder why you were so worried to begin with.

  • The Charming City of Valencia, The Charming City of Valencia, Spain

    • From: Rocio
    • Description:

      Although it is not as famous as the big cities Madrid or Barcelona, Valencia doesn’t have anything to envy them. This picturesque city conserves its original charm, especially in the Old neighborhood where its Roman and Arabian influences are highly visible.

      This city situated in the cost of the South East of Spain has the perfect weather during the whole year. One of the best areas to visit is the neighborhood of ‘El Carmen’. There you can find the oldest buildings in the city, such as ‘The Central Market’ is one of the largest markets in Europe which was built between 1914 and 1928.

      Albufera

      Other representative buildings are ‘The Silk Exchange’ and ‘Plaza Redonda’. The first one was originally used for trading silk and it is considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is characteristic of the late Gothic Architecture style, reflecting the ‘Golden Valencian Century’. Plaza Redonda is trading square that was built in 1840.

      In El Carmen, it is possible to find the best places to eat the traditional Paella and to taste the some of the best ‘tapas’ of Valencia. One of the best ways to live the city it is to stay in an apartment in ‘El Carmen’ and become a part of this charming neighborhood. If you are interested in finding a nice apartment in the city center click here.

      The ‘City of Arts and Science’ is an architectural enclave formed by different buildings such as the Science Museum Principe Felipe, the Oceanographic or the Hemispheric where it is possible to enjoy culture in a fun way. This is very recommendable for families with kids.

       

      Another touristic attraction that visitants can’t miss is the Natural park of L’Albufera. This large lagoon contains a huge biodiversity with a large amount of flora and fauna in danger of extinction. I recommend taking a bike from the city center to the pier of the town ‘El Saler’ and then do a boat trip to see the amazing sunset that takes place there. Once there, the town of ‘El palmar’ is a very recommendable visit.
