Vacation rentals in a place such as Hilton Head Island, South Carolina offer families their own homes away from home. Establishing this way to vacation with your family reduces stress and increases the pleasant memories you'll take home afterward.

Many vacation rentals are actually much less costly than a comparable hotel room or suite. The reason is simple - the overhead for an owner's single-property vacation rental is much lower than the promotion fees built into the rates of a major hotel chain. It follows the Coca-Cola example: the can costs 1.5 cents, the ingredients cost about a nickel, and the advertising and marketing cost 35 cents a can. How would you rather spend your money, on promotion or on product?

Convenience, flexibility, and variety of accommodations (Homes - Villas - Condos) are just some of advantages of choosing vacation rental properties. One of the great advantages to vacation rental properties is space, especially in a home or a villa that has multiple bedrooms. Rarely can the average priced hotel room compare to a vacation rental. And that's just the beginning.

It's unlikely that Mom wants to spend much of her vacation in the kitchen, but vacation rentals give you that option. What's even better is that all the necessities are furnished - plates, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker. A budget-constricted family utilizing a well-equipped kitchen on vacation can reserve some funds for that special event - to see a show, to shop for treasures in specialty outlets, to book a jet ski rental, charter fishing trip, or even a daring afternoon of parachute sailing above the waters of the Calibogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean you always wanted to try!

In Hilton Head Island, there are a few vacation rental companies that offer invaluable advice when you book with them. Dealing with a good one such as Hilton Head Rentals provides you with a Local's perspective about all the interesting things to do, and can help make your vacation even more memorable. Whether it's Hilton Head golf, fishing, tennis or what restaurants to try (or which to stay away from!) we are locally based, not sitting in some "boiler room" based in India or New York and trying to answer questions about Hilton Head.

Vacation rental companies exist to help you get the most value for your hard-earned dollar. Professional reservations staff truly wants to help you get the kind of priceless memories that will last forever. So the next times you're thinking "hotel or a vacation rental property?" consider the above and weigh the advantages.

Watching Tv In Spain

(category: Vacations, Word count: 691)

What about my UK TV?

If you are thinking of taking your TV with you to Spain, TV sets operating on the British system (PAL-1) won't work. Spain uses the PAL- BG standard. However, it will work via a satellite system or by connecting the aerial to a Spanish video player, which must be connected by a SCART lead to the TV. Most expats who move to Spain, with all the best intentions of learning Spanish via the television usually end up with a whacking great dish taking up half of their terrace.

Communal Satellite System

Many urbanisations have their own communal satellite system usually depending on the ratio of Brits to Spanish. Not all developments have communal systems and those who do want it may have to organise it amongst themselves.

Quality TV?

Whether you understand the Spanish language or not, I am sure that most people will agree that after a night in front of the Spanish box, the BBC license fee is worth every penny.

The Channels

There are two state owned channels TVE 1 AND 2, channels specific for each region and the two large privately owned Antena 3 and Tele 5. TVE backs the governing socialist party, PSOE; Antena 3 has right wing leanings; and TELE 5 leans more to the left. With regards to the state-owned channels there is currently an obvious attempt to improve the quality of programmes with more 'realistic' soaps such as Cuentame como paso about everyday life during the Franco era. News coverage can be quite disturbing as there is little editing of live, video footage; probably a backlash of years of censorship under Franco.

Chat Shows

If you are Trisha fan or celeb obsessed than you are in for a treat as the main offerings are low quality chat shows devoted to gossip and scandal. However, exposure to such programmes should be kept to a minimum as they can result in severe headaches due to the inability of the guests and sometimes presenters to talk in a voice less than 120 decibels.

UK influenced TV

Reality television has hit Spain, although in a much lower dose than the UK. If you want to improve your colloquial Spanish then Spanish Big Brother, literally translated as Gran Hermano is the one to watch. If you thought the UK version was a shameful reflection of British society today than don't judge the Spanish based on it. Other familiar shows include copies of The Weakest Link and Who Wants to be a Millionaire whose presenters are Spanish clones of our own Anne Robinson and Chris Tarrant. Dubbed American sitcoms are popular ranging from the more recent Frazier and Friends to the more tired Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Comedy

Fans of British comedy such as The Office and Only Fools will be sorely disappointed as Spanish comedy can be amateur and crude. Unconvincing transvestites with balloons for boobs are still very much in vogue as is slapstick humour.

Be Patient!

Spanish television will certainly test your patience with commercial breaks every fifteen minutes that last fifteen minutes. In fact, it is easy to become engrossed in two or three programmes on different channels at once while you wait for the other one to return.

TV for Learning

Compared to the quality of our own home grown CBeebies, there is little educational value in Spanish children's television. Dubbed Japanese cartoons are in abundance and Muppets style 'Los Lunnis' are popular with the three to eight age group. TVE often shows dubbed episodes of the Fimbles and Teletubbies which are a great familiar starting point for both pre schoolers and adults alike in acquiring the Spanish language.

Learn Spanish by watching telly!

Personally, I have found Spanish television a fantastic way of improving my listening and understanding of the Spanish language. When I first started watching it just over eighteen months ago, I could barely follow a Mexican soap opera and now, although I can't understand the meaning of every word, from an information point of view, I can get the same benefits from Spanish television that I used to with British.

The Un Headquarters In Nyc

(category: Vacations, Word count: 261)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

NYC has been the site of the United Nations Headquarters since 1952. The complex is located on the east side of Midtown Manhattan in the Turtle Bay neighborhood, overlooking the East River. The 18 acre site is an international zone which belongs not to the U.S., but to all member states; this makes for some complicated legal rhetoric. The actual earth underneath the building belongs to the United States, but the United Nations Headquarters site is granted extraterritoriality status, meaning that it is exempt from local jurisdiction. However, this does not grant immunity to those who commit crimes at the Headquarters, as they must remain under the jurisdiction of the United States. The physical address is 760 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY, 10017; all mail received at this address is sterilized.

The land for the United Nations Headquarters was purchased by the Rockefeller family and donated to New York City. Wallace Harrison, the lead architect on an international team, designed the buildings and was also the Rockefellers' personal architectural advisor. Prior to constructing this complex, the United Nations Headquarters was temporarily housed at Lake Success, NY, on Long Island. Because the buildings need to be repaired, some members have suggested that a new temporary location be erected at the Lake Success site or a Brooklyn location; others suggest building a permanent replacement facility where the World Trade Center towers once stood.

Construction of the United Nations Headquarters was financed by an interest-free loan from the United States government. The Headquarters consists of four main buildings

Kuranda Skyrail Flying Over A Tropical Paradise

(category: Vacations, Word count: 911)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

...Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes

He star'd at the Pacific - and all his men

Look'd at each other with a wild surmise -

Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

-John Keats, On First Looking into Chapman's Homer

As you watch the Coral Sea (a part of the same Pacific that 'Cortez' first saw from Panama) from the vantage point ensconced in your cozy gondola, you feel like you are an adventurer out to discover new lands. As you skim over the pristine canopy of a tropical rainforest you come face to face with raw sublime nature that is a source of everyday awe in these parts.

Kuranda Skyrail, a cablecar system high above the Barron George National Park, is a unique experience that every visitor to Queensland must savor for themselves.

As ecotourism gained greater fad during the 1990s, various parts of the world tried to marry ecological hotspots with tourism. This has many advantages:

(*)The authorities earn revenue.

(*)The tourism generates direct and indirect employment.

(*)It leads to infrastructural development.

(*)People learn about and appreciate nature and ecology.

The Kuranda Skyrail was conceived with the same objectives way back in 1987, and after numerous feasibility and scientific studies, the go ahead was given in May 1994, with the construction starting the very next month. There were protests, of course. Opponents argued that construction would lead to destruction of pristine forest land and cause damage to flora and fauna, many of which were endangered.

As a result, tremendous precaution attended the construction. Tower parts were carried by helicopters and downloaded with long lines to avoid wind turbulence around the forest canopy. All plants disturbed were re-installed carefully after completion of construction.

$35 million and 15 months later the Skyrail opened to great public acclaim. Even today it remains one of the most environmentally sensitive cableways in the world, with many accreditations like Green Globe 21, EMS ISO certifications, QMS ISO certifications and Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation.

Today, the Kuranda Skyrail is one of the major tourist attractions in the whole of Australia. Stretching over 7.5 kilometers of lush rainforests, 114 gondolas carry 700 people per hour and move continuously throughout the year - they come to a halt only on Christmas Day. The journey is a study in fascination - at times you hover over the canopy, and as the gondolas near the stations, you glide into the forest and touch the rainforest ground. A one-way trip takes about 1.5 hours, while a return trip would take at least 2.5 hours. A total of four landing stations - Caravonica Terminal, Red Peak Station, Barron Falls Station and Kuranda - one can start or conclude a trip either at Caravonica or Kuranda. Caravonica, situated just 15 minutes from Cairns is only 5 meters above sea level, whereas the Red Peak, at 545 meters remains the highest. The mid-stations of Red Peak and Barron Falls provide alighting opportunities that must be enjoyed. At the Red Peak is a 175 meter wooden broadwalk that shall take you into the heart of rainforest floor as you get to see the flora from up close. Complimentary guided broadwalk tours by informed attendants make the journey entertaining as well as informative. It is also the perfect place to spot many unique species of birds and butterflies. The blue Ulysses butterflies are the most famous among them. The approach to the Barron Falls station is one of the most spectacular sights as the cableway glides past the majestic Barron gorge with its steep granite walls lined with deep vegetation. The Kuranda terminal is situated in Kuranda, the 'village in the Rainforest', a tourist spot in itself. With a butterfly sanctuary, colorful aviary and koala park, shops, cafes, restaurants and various other historical buildings, Kuranda deserves a few hours by itself. Of course many people hurry through the tour and return back to enjoy as much of the tropics as possible in a single day. But if you want to savor the real taste of the rainforest and the Skyrail, you should definitely devote your leisurely hours at each of the stations.

Skyrail is considered a must by all tourists to north Queensland. It is easily accessible from Cairns and Port Douglas (50 kms). One may take a return trip on the Skyrail. Another popular option is to go to Kuranda on the Skyrail and return by Kuranda Scenic Railway, or vice versa. The railway winds majestically along the gorge past a spectatcular waterfall cascade, and is a marvelous historically significant contrast to the modern convenience of the skyrail gondolas.

A tropical country, it has warm temperature during summer months, and is cool during the winter. Rain need not dampen your adventure - the rainforest is used to being drenched in heavy rainfall, and many locals say the real beauty of the rainforest emerges only during the rains. So as long as you don't arrive on Christmas day, you are sure to carry home a fascinating memory. And you might remember the lines from Keats on your way home.

Tuscany wine has an unrivalled reputation among all others in the region with a distinct flavor that makes it a favorite to many wine lovers all over Europe and globally too. Since wine is known to add color to all events being celebrated, it is only wise for one to make Tuscany a preferred holiday destination. There are multiple wine zones in Tuscany. Some of the most important of these wine zones include Chianti Classico, Bolgheri and Montalcino.

It is arguably true that Tuscany is a major center of Italy's wine producing cities because it is also widely said that Italy is the highest wine producing country in the world. Thus, Tuscany boasts of some of Italy's finest with a wide variety of such wines. For many decades, wine has been a major attraction to Tuscany; what with the number of visitors and tourists flocking into the city regularly for their fair share of wine-dine sessions. In recent years, Tuscany's wine makers have been putting in extra effort to enhance the quality of their wines which results in the high class products that make their way out of Tuscany's vineyards.

The excellence of Tuscany's wines are better tried and tasted for the above facts to be agreed. Whether it's for domestic consumption or for the world's markets, Tuscany can't simply be ignored on a list of the best towns producing the best wines. As the saying goes, "the taste of the pudding is in the eating," so does the taste of Tuscany's foods and wines. Within the town itself, it is very easy to locate any restaurant, eatery or bar for a quick go at any of the city's numerous foods and wines. For those who choose to take away the exotic wines, there are lots of stores where they can be found.

Tuscany's wines have come a long way that the best among the different wines have earned the term "Super Tuscan Wines." These are the types that are made using several blends of exotic varieties of fruits like grape, strawberry, cherry, etc. The west of Tuscany where the Bolgheri wine zone has its base is known as the birthplace of Tignanello and Sassacaia; both of which are Super Tuscan Wines. The wines from Bolgheri have lately been receiving more attention than ever before. Most especially in recent decades and this is largely because of their high quality among other Italian wines. Red Tuscany wine is one of the favored drinks among both locals and visitors to the Italian city.

This may be because of its unique mode of preparation whereby several different grapes like Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are blended together to give the finished product. The above grapes are also used to produce different types of wines. Although much has been highlighted about Tuscan wines, the city's food also enjoys the same attention as its beverage counterpart with the comments and feedback of many visitors and tourists to Tuscany.

Holiday makers to Italy always love to stop over in Tuscany to have a taste of what they often read about on the pages of travel magazines and journals. For many visitors to Italy, there are more than enough varieties of cuisines to try for an entire month for those who may be visiting the country as first timers. There is equally a wide array of mouth-watering delicatessens to try for those who are regular comers to Tuscany.

As a good way of enjoying your stay in Tuscany, you can decide to take down the list of the most popular dishes that are common among locals. Along with this list, you may also copy the recipes of the dishes that are easy to prepare or that belong to your list of favorites; with love from Tuscany. In the absence of something new to take home as souvenir from Tuscany, one can take this simple but important list of cuisines back home so as to make something out of the Italy trip. Really, foods and wines in Italy and to be specific, Tuscany, are cheap, affordable and readily available too. Depending on your preferences, you just can't run out of what to eat or drink while you are out in the Tuscan home of Italy. See you there.

Can You Really Enjoy World Travel On A Mini Budget

(category: Vacations, Word count: 681)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Many people hold in their dreams to become a world traveler, or to at least go on at least one trip to a foreign locale. The reason most people do not act on their desire to travel abroad is of course financial. There are ways to enjoy world travel on a budget, but you have to know where to look and where to lay your concern when searching for the right vacation destination and flight.

Although in recent years there have been more students that request student loans and government grant so get through their college years, there is also a surge in the number of college aged students that take trips to foreign locations. These excursions occur partly because of a foreign studies program or missions trip that is offered by the school and often partially covered from the semester's tuition, but also because Americans, as a whole, are more apt to spend money that they do not have than they used to be.

In order to break down how students and adult travelers can travel abroad on a budget, we have to first separate the travel costs into categories. If you break down the trip into three categories and search for bargains in those three categories separately, you will be likely to find a good deal on each. The first category would be travel. The main portion of this category will likely be the trip to and from your destination, but you can also include transportation while on your vacation in this heading as well. For example, if you are traveling through Europe, you may be more likely to need several flights while on your vacation, whereas a trip to the Bahamas or Cancun would require only local travel.

Begin researching flight costs. You should do this at no less than three locations. Those three would be a travel agent, the internet (sites like Priceline and Travelocity), and the airlines themselves. At separate times, you may get the best price at any of these locations. If you think the first place you find a price for a flight is a great price, keep looking, you can always come back and get it in a few hours, after you have checked around. Also, if you are planning several smaller flights while on your vacation, there are great deals for short flights throughout Europe. These can also be researched on the internet or through your travel agent. If you are planning to rent a car, check with local companies in your home country to see if they can recommend a rental place in your destination, but also check with the locals once you have arrived and see where they recommend. Many times, the locals know better than anyone where to find a good deal.

Searching for a hotel can be done in much the same way as searching for your transportation needs. You should always check at least three separate places before committing. Know also that hotels in other countries are likely not the same as hotels in your own backyard. Many hotels may have community showers, while others will have private baths in each room or suite. Make a list of questions to be answered before booking any hotel. Once you have decided that the hotel you have selected is satisfactory in both appearance and price, then you should book the hotel to insure a room is available for you and your travel companion.

Finally, we come to entertainment money, or spending money as some would call it. You will inevitably want to spend money on your vacation, whether it be for meals or souvenirs for grandma. In all money spending situations, use your common sense. In foreign countries, it could be difficult to remember the exchange rate and know what you are spending on certain items, so an electronic exchange calculator is a great tool for your outings.

If you keep these suggestions in mind, you can enjoy world travel on a budget and still have a great time!
