We Just Got to Colorado

August 29th, 2017 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

Jack and I packed up two pick up trucks and headed out here last week. I pulled a trailer with more tools and such in it. We got a big contract and it was worth it for us to come up here. Of course in this part of the world this is the off season, they are expecting us to do what we do and be out of here when the snow starts to fall. Some way or another we are living in this luxury cabin rentals in Aspen, but like I said the place is likely vacant a lot before the snows fall. This place is really great, with a big hot tub and an incredible view. It seems like they would be able to find people to rent the place out in the summer, but we are living in it more or less for free. The guy that has us working for him threw that in to seal the deal. continue reading »

Four Tips to Help You Travel With a Toddler

April 27th, 2017 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

There was a time before I had my first child, where I would visit the airport and see parents struggle with their children. Whether it was checking in, handling their bags, or watching them struggle through security, it was all a nightmare come true. Of course, this is all before the family even got on the plane! Then the real drama starts.

However, once my little one was old enough, we took him on an overseas adventure, and I quickly learned that if I knew the right, right tips and tricks, my experience didn’t have to bee what I saw. If you are about to bring a newborn into the world or you have a toddler, and you are reading to take them on vacation, here are my top tips to share.

 

  1. Planning Is Key
    1. A well-planned family vacation is a smooth family vacation. Sit down and run through the process in your head. What will the morning look like, who needs to do and take what, how long will it take to get to the airport and what are the best routes? Once you have the logistics planned out in front of you, you will be able to predict any issues and plan for them, such as what to do if your taxi breaks down or if you get stuck in a traffic jam.

 

  1. Medicine
    1. I try to give my little one as little medicine as possible. However, I also realize that sometimes it’s needed. And one of those times is likely to occur on a plane. Be sure to pack a small supply of children’s medication and first-aid items which you can carry around with you. Small items which can reduce a fever, help them to sleep, or even a plaster if they injure themselves along the way. Having these items on hand makes small hiccups easier to manage and overcome.

 

  1. Entertainment
    1. If you thought that the in-flight entertainment was bad, imagine what your children think. And trust me, I have seen far too many children scream because they wouldn’t watch their favorite show to leave it up to the airline keep my youngster entertained. Load up a tablet or phone with movies, tv shows for them to interact with during the journey. If you prefer something more educational, check out the Groupon Coupons page for Babies R Us for great deals on educational toys which you can travel with.

 

  1. Join in the Journaling
    1. Taking photos of your journey is a great way to capture the moment and to spend your time. This is also an activity which a child can enjoy. If you have an old phone or camera lying around, repurpose it solely as a camera for your little one to take their pictures. This is not only a great way to keep them entertained, but also gives them their memories of the journey to share. If you choose this tip, be sure that the camera or phone you are providing them is not valuable, as they are likely to drop it on the ground a number of times.

 

There is nothing I love more than spending time with my family. And by using these four simple tips, my first and subsequent travel experiences have all been smooth sailing. Well, smooth flying, at least!

 

 

Best Limo Service in Toronto

August 16th, 2016 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

I would like to rent a limo on prom night and I need to find a good limo service to rent that limo from. Currently I am checking out Paradise Limo service in Toronto to see what sorts of pricing they have and if they have any deals to make it cheaper for me. I am looking now to make sure that they all aren’t reserved before I can rent one, even though prom is still over a month away. I am really excited about prom because I am going to be taking the girl of my dreams, who I have been dating for a little over six months now. But I must admit that I have had a crush on her for years and years, and we have been friends for most of that time.

So now I am in the fortunate position of actually being in a relationship with her, and more than that, I get to take her to the prom dance. I couldn’t be more happy, which is why I have been saving up money for months now in order to rent a limo to take her to prom in. She doesn’t know about this plan of mine, and I want to keep it a surprise. That is why I haven’t even told my parents about the plan, and I really do think that it is a good plan, so long as I can find a good price on the limo.

The only problem is that I need to make sure that I don’t spend so much money on the limo rental that I don’t have enough money left to pay for our dinner the night of prom, before we actually go to the dance. Though, I guess I could probably borrow that money from my parents if need be.

Giving a Presentation on Wheels

August 16th, 2016 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

For a client at my job, my boss put me in charge of giving a presentation that would knock his socks off. This was my first time doing a presentation, and I was both excited and scared. Getting such a big job like this would open the door for more work, and even a promotion. At the same time, one screw up and I would probably be demoted, or in a worst case scenario, fired from my job. To truly impress the client, I decided to go outside of the box and rent a party bus from www.partybustoronto.limo to use for my presentation.

Rather than delivering a boring presentation in an office building, I would pick the client up in the party bus and have it drive around while I give my presentation. It was a plan that was just crazy enough to work. I kept the full details of my plan a secret so that I wouldn’t get any opposition from the boss. I had a planned route for the party bus to follow to get the client to approve of my presentation. continue reading »

I Tried Something Different to Catch Attention from the Right People

August 16th, 2016 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

As someone who has been interested in music since I was a little boy, I was anxious to figure out how I could apply that to a future career. Many of my friends were into playing guitar and singing, but I was interested in something more energetic, and quickly fell in love with club music in my teens. I spent a lot of time honing my craft through the years. By the time I hit age 21, I felt ready to show what I could do, so I rented a Toronto party bus and invited some people in the music biz to a night out while I played all the tunes for the night.

Some people start out working as a freelance DJ for weddings and things like that. continue reading »

Using a Party Bus to Visit a Movie Premier Was Fun

August 16th, 2016 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

Some friends and I were planning on attending a movie premier. It was the newest movie of a franchise we have been watching since it originally came out back when we were young children. We had enough people that we wanted to rent a limo to take us. There were going to be a couple of the actors attending the premier, so it was a big deal to us. After word got out that we were going in a limo, more people wanted to go with us. By the time we were going, we needed a Platinum Toronto party bus to take us all.

It was really cool puling up in front of the theater in the party bus. continue reading »

Why My High School Prom Was Extra Special

July 28th, 2016 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

My family has been struggling to get by due to changes where my parents work. We manage our expenses very well. My brother and I work part time, and we still deliver newspapers in the morning even though I am graduating this year. I had no plans for prom until I met a girl and really fell for her. My parents are the ones that made sure I was able to do prom the right way with a tux, limo and even the senior dinner. Our neighbor works for a limo company. I heard him say to check our website for the best limos at the best price.

No one knows about our financial struggles. That is how it is for most families. We are very frugal, and we do not waste money on things. I am a teenager and I use coupons! We picked a nice limo for my senior prom from a company that offers superior service, clean limos and party buses and professional drivers at rates that people can actually afford. Mom and dad would not let me talk them out of it. I was okay with just getting a ride in our car. They were not. continue reading »

Top 5 List of Things to do in Derbyshire, England

December 18th, 2014 -- Posted in England Travel Guide | No Comments »

Every year millions of tours arrive in the UK and focus on finding discount tours of London and more, but they miss out on some of the other stunning areas of the UK. One such area is Derbyshire where some of the UK’s most stunning scenery can be found.

Derbyshire in the East Midlands acts as an ideal location for exploring the Peak District and Pennine ranges. Long associated with tribal sites, castles and lead ore mining, Derbyshire’s industrial past has given way to commuting to major cities like Derby, as well as to its natural resources and tourist sites. Visitors can explore the Peak District, which crosses between Derbyshire and neighbouring counties like Greater Manchester, the city of Derby, Chatsworth House, the Bluebell Arboretum, and the Dovedale Ravine. More on these attractions can be found below:

1 – Walk the Peak District

The Peak District is a national park that is primarily located within Derbyshire. The landscape is generally flat with sloping hills, and is one of the best places in the UK to see rare flora and fauna, as well as manmade routes lie Jacob’s Ladder. The Peak District is also ideal for viewing rare birds like the Golden Plover, and contains extensive potholing and rock climbing formations. Ambitious walkers can tackle the Pennine Way, a 251 mile walk that stretches from the Peak District up to the border with Scotland.

2 – Visit Derby

The city of Derby can trace its roots back to Roman and Saxon settlements, and to the industry provided along the River Derwent. A key city during the Industrial Revolution, Derby’s 20th century growth was driven by car manufacturing via Rolls Royce and Toyota plants. Visitors can take in Derby Cathedral, the Derby Industrial Museum, art galleries, Pickford’s House Museum, and Derby County Football Club’s Pride Park Stadiums. Cultural attractions include open air events at Darley Park, the QUAD art gallery and cinema, and the Derby Playhouse.

3 – Explore Chatsworth House

A stately home that is open to the public, Chatsworth House is located near to Bakewell and Chesterfield. The home of the Cavendish family, Chatsworth has stood for hundreds of years, and became a national attraction in 1950. While only a small proportion of the stately home’s rooms are open to the public, visitors can take in world class art galleries, drawing rooms, tapestries, and one of the most diverse gardens in the UK.

Over 300,000 visitors come to Chatsworth every year to take in the house, its walled gardens, woodlands, and exhibitions.

4 – Visit the Bluebell Arboretum

Home to rare trees and plant nurseries, the Bluebell Arboretum is near to Smisby, and has been a key conservation site since 1992. The Arboretum is primarily concerned with protecting rare trees and plants, which include Chinese dogwood and giant redwood. Included as part of the National Gardens scheme, the Arboretum holds a wide range of family friendly exhibitions and tours. It’s also a cheap day out, with adults charged £2.50, and children going free.

5 – Dovedale Ravine

A National Trust property, Dovedale Ravine is primarily made up of limestone, and is found along the River Dove. Leading attractions include Victorian Stepping Stones, gift shops and a tea room, and guided tours for the area’s many geological sites of interest. Over a million visitors a year come to this part of the Peak District, which forms part of the South Peak Estate. The nearby village of Milldale also makes for an ideal stop off point for those travelling to the Ravine.

Things That Will Take The Stress Out Of Traveling

Traveling can be pretty intimidating to someone that has never gone on a trip before. It can easily lead to a bit of information overload because of all of the resources you can access. Below are some tips to help you in organizing this information so that you can start traveling smarter and safer.

When traveling internationally on a budget, consider taking flights rather than trains to your destinations. While trains are perhaps the more traditional mode of transportation for backpackers, many airlines offer discount flights that are much cheaper than train tickets. This way, you can travel to more places without adding to your budget.

Another good way to get some sleep on an airplane is by using headphones or ear plugs. This will drown out the constant engine noise and also the little kids and talkative adults on the plane. You will be able to relax and get some much needed rest.

Use social media as a tool to help you discover all the hidden gems in the city that you are traveling to. Asking your friends and family members questions about your destination can be useful not only before you go, but also while you are there. You’ll be amazed at the great tips you receive, ranging from hotel recommendations to great shopping opportunities. continue reading »

The Key To A Great Vacation Is Preparation

The Key To A Great Vacation Is Preparation

Taking that well deserved vacation can be a treat for you and the entire family. However, before you decide to book your vacation, read some helpful hints about traveling in this informative article. Use the tips and information provided to help you have a more pleasurable experience.

When traveling by airplane, try to limit yourself to a single 20 pound carry-on bag. This way, you always know where you luggage is. If you are traveling to multiple destinations in a single trip, there’s nothing worse than having your luggage chasing you around while you go without clean underwear.

If you are a woman traveling overnight on business, be sure that the blouses and underthings you wear and bring can be washed in the sink and hung up or blow-dried. Missed luggage and/or connections can mean you arrive at a hotel late at night, with only the clothes on your back to wear the next day. Lightweight, wrinkle-free polyester or microfiber blouses and tops can be washed and hung up, and will be dry in the morning, as will all your lingerie.

If you enjoy alcohol, there’s no better way when traveling, to get to know a new city than with a pub crawl. Visiting multiple establishments in the same night, will give an interesting cross-section of the city that you wouldn’t gain any other way. Plus, you’ll make some new friends. continue reading »
