Our trip to the United Arab Emirates started in Ras Al Khaimah, one of the seven emirates that is approximately two hours’ drive away from Dubai and three from Abu Dhabi. The city itself cannot yet compete with the above-mentioned neighbors, but nevertheless, it is developing very rapidly… hotels with private beaches, relatively large shopping centers are being built, and additional tourist offer is expanding → they can boast with longest zip-line in the world!
It’s finally time to check off United Arab Emirates from our bucket list! Modern cities, with of course, Dubai and Abu Dhabi at forefront, which are still filled with rich history and permeated with fragrances of perfumes and spices.
We thought about the Emirates for a good time now, but we always choose other destinations. A good year ago, we even bought ourselves a Lonely Planet, but until now it was only sitting on the shelf and served as an excellent dust catcher 🙂
The year is almost over, the last one standing is December – the month, most of us connect it with holidays, snow, family and Christmas fairs. Nevertheless, the last month of the year is not reserved only for mulled wine, gingerbread and other sweet stuff, but it is also excellent for longer vacations somewhere in a warmer part of the world.
When we planning a trip we always take care of comfortable accommodation, do a research how we will get from point A to point B, sometimes we even select where we will eat… Everything with a reason that we will enjoy our vacations without any worries. However, we forget the most essential – our health and our finances, if something goes wrong. When we travel, we are usually braver, we do different and often more adrenaline stuff, eating food we would never have tasted back home, we walk through unknown paths and we mostly do not realize that there could be anything but a pleasant surprise right around the corner… and here travel insurance comes in.
We can choose among many providers, so it is always difficult to pick the right one. Maybe you can trust our judgment and choosing travel insurance with CORIS. Why? Because they are specialized for foreign countries, have range of all kinds of offers and an additional plus – they are available 24/7. Unfortunately, we all know this words – disaster never rests.
Before every trip, we write down a list of things that should be urgently needed on the road. There are of course clothes, all kind of technology, toiletries and other matters. In this part of planning a journey, most ladies faces with really serious difficulties. Anyway, which are those things you really need while traveling and you will regret, if you did not took them with you?
Who would have thought we are already in October and mid-autumn? Time is passing by like crazy! Summer is over; the first parental meetings are behind, students we know how busy the first week on a college is :)… so now it is high time for the last summer-like holiday before the winter comes in.
The United States are not just megalomaniac cities and concrete jungles, which we know from various films… There are also many beautiful national parks, deserts, small cozy villages and much more.
It may seem that America has become our place to be – in two years; we visited it for three times. However, this time was a bit different, we went on a 16-day American road trip: from San Francisco through Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Therefore, if you are one of those who enjoy being behind the wheel and drive on long, straight roads, then our itinerary through western part of North America will be perfect for you.
Do you have couple more vacation days left? Do you miss some sunbathing and swimming in the sea already? On the other hand, would you just like to charge batteries before the college start again? There are quite a few places, where you can catch early autumn, but still warm sun for beach lounging, exploring cities, sitting in bars and pampering yourself with culinary specialties. After the summer season, the prices of accommodation are significantly lower and there are fewer tourists, so you will definitely find a place for your towel on the wonderful beach. Those are just couple of reasons, why traveling in September is always a good idea… What do famous travel websites recommend for this month?
Why should we, on every sunny summer weekend escape to the beach? Do you really want to move in slow motion on the motorways to the south? Probably not! That is why we jumped to the north this time and served you with this great idea for a wonderful one-day trip, just 380 km from Ljubljana.
Vienna, 2 million Austrian capital, really impressed with summer vibes, really an opposite as a dark and rainy version around Christmas festivals.
From national parks and beautiful nature back to »civilization«, into the vast cities of the West. First things first, after the Grand Canyon tour, we drove to Williams, a small town known for the legendary Route 66 – a road that connects the whole America, from Chicago to Los Angeles, with a length of almost 4000 km! However, the new motorway sections are wiping out history, leaving only a few more parts of the original road, which, however, is becoming more and more popular this days. Williams is just one of the cities that has been able to use all of its history very well. Rock’n’roll, old American classic cars, beer and greasy grilled dishes… all these are the things that attract more and more tourists. Just a dozen miles away, in Seligman, we were lucky that »Fun Run« was on the same day of our visit – an event where, hundreds of legendary American cars drive down the Route 66 each year. Just the wet dreams for everyone who love sounds of the engines and smell of the petrol!
