Being Home For Christmas?

Being home for Christmas can be an excellent choice for some and less pleasant for others. Some go abroad to reunite with their families, while others can’t stay with their families, because for any reasons, they are unable to travel during Christmas. In the opposite plan, are people who can travel during the holiday season, but rather prefer a Christmas holiday away from home. Anyway, let’s remember that Christmas has a deeper meaning than rustle around, tourism offers, discounts or the media templates present everywhere. Nothing compares with the winter holidays spent in the arms of your family.

Being with your family is the ideal moment to recharge your batteries!

Lose yourself in the smell of cookies coming from your mother’s kitchen, pretend you like your father’s jokes and stay lazy listening to carols. If you go to visit your children, try to relax and be amazed by the new achievements of your children, without being so harsh on your son’s wife! :-) Leave aside any trace of antipathy and do so as to reach a common ground with your family members, making this event a cause for joy, not stress!

Things we don’t take into consideration when we go in a trip, although they are essential.

Friends, today I thought and I gathered some things that we don’t take into consideration when we go in a trip, although they are essential. So here they are!

All of us who travel often have the need to control their own journey, for reasons of personal safety or comfort or desire to carry things better. But unfortunately, often the events do not unfold in the way that we wanted, often gaining another turn. Thinking at my own initiatives leading to the smallest detail a journey and influencing the route, but also seeing at my friends all the mistakes they make when planning a trip, I decided to make a list of the most frequent misconceptions, mistakes and related plans that deliberately or not, we do when we plan a trip.

1. We put a lot of unnecessary stuff in bag and forget the essential things. Try not to put in your luggage unnecessary things like accessories, too many clothes, and many kinds of body creams, perfumes and other stuff. However, always remember that in a journey of several days, it should not reduce on how trendy you’re dressed or how much perfume you sprayed on your skin. Also, no need to pull a heavy and uncomfortable luggage, feeling it like a huge stone that will give you back pain, preventing you from enjoying the way from airport to hotel and vice-versa,  discovering the way to your destination where you wanted so much to go.

2. We pay too much attention to the outfits, and omit the comfort. Instead of worrying about the number of outfits worn every day, give shoes a special interest. Shoes should be comfortable, with low soles, because wearing heals will most likely make you weep of blisters or corns, that will definitely cut your desire to walk. If you really want to get better in pictures, you can throw in luggage, some heels for a night at the restaurant or a short walk.

3. Sometimes we leave the money on the card and have few cash. Try to have cash on you; do not let all the money on the card. Often, for known or unknown reasons, some institutions, shops, restaurants, does not accept the type of card that you have, or simply does not work, even if it is mentioned in their list of acceptance. Or maybe you will not find an ATM in time and when you need it and that can be downright stressful.

New Zealand is one of the archipelagos separated by stretches of the Pacific Ocean, which make up Oceania, being separated from Australia to the northwest of the Tasman Sea. New Zealand is considered the farthest destination, the closest neighbors being New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga. Islands of New Zealand are part of the so-called ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’ that includes many active volcanoes, in New Zealand earthquakes frequently occurring.

Due to the fog surrounding the high volcanoes and snow capped peaks, the first Maori who reached New Zealand, called her ‘Aotearoa’ meaning ‘the country of the long white cloud’. Fascinating is that in the same country there are two populations, as almost 15% of 4, 2 million people, are of Maori origin, and the remaining 80% of European origin, making New Zealand a strange juxtaposition, but also an incredible fascinating place.

Its magnificent scenery attracts annually millions of tourists from around the world. Forests and beaches, deserts, volcanoes and mountain peaks, all forms a picture drawn from paradise.

Travelling to Thassos Island – Review of the day

SAM_0114

Kavala is one of the largest cities in northern Greece and the bridge to The Green Island of Greece – Thassos Island. Whereof, if in one of the days spent in Kavala, you decide to make a day trip, what could be more beautiful than Thassos Island, where is the turquoise sea, olive trees, oleanders, palms, hills full of herbs, making the picture to be complete.

Thassos, lately occupied a good position in the ranking of lovers of beauty, crystal turquoise water, mountains that seem to be thrown into the sea and why not, the affordable prices at accommodation, compared to other destinations.

The distance from Kavala to Thassos is longer, compared to route departing from Keramoti and the trip takes about 75 minutes, depends on what type of ferry you’ll take and what time you choose, because you can do less than 75 minutes, maybe half of this time. Minutes pass quickly, as you’ll be busy all the way to feed the seagulls, which are making the route Kavala – Thassos and vice versa. So be prepared with some bread or bagels, and a photo/video camera, because seagulls are eager to take the food from your hands and to posed, for the most beautiful snapshots.

The price of the ferry varies according to the port of arrival and also by the type of ferry. How we got in a hurry, we took the ferry which was leaving, belonging to ”Thassos Ferries Company”, and the trip has cost around € 4.60 / person/one direction only. If you are by car, you can take her too, for a fee of EUR 20/30 depending on season. The program of departures in high season, in summer, starts at 9:00 am until 8:00 pm. PS: Shipping companies change their schedule, so the safest is to go directly to the port and see clearly the program.

The advantage of going to the island by car, is because Thassos is one of the few Greek Islands that has a road, surrounding it and during your driving you’ll cross near the sea, you will pass through several picturesque villages and island’s beaches. The trip lasts approximately 3 hours.

The ferry will let you in…http://tripelonia.com/headline/kavala-part-3-travelling-to-thassos-island/303
