Tired of the usual tours offered by groups? Try a different kind of tour this time—factory tours.

If you are someone who likes to take a peek behind the production lines, then this tour would be perfect for you. A huge fan of motorcycling or motorcycles themselves? Give yourself the chance to see how they are made.

Visiting the factory of the famous sauce Tabasco is a must for fans of the hot sauce. The best part? Have a taste of Tabasco-flavored ice cream, a treat only served in their factory. Even if it’s not as strange as this, getting a taste of your favorite beer for example can only get as fresh as this.

It is pretty normal for anyone to plan their trip and book hotels online. Infact it’s best if you book hotels online rather than reaching your destination and run around to look for the best affordable hotel that suit your needs.

This is where HotelCalculator comes in action. A free hotel search engine that lets you save time by searching multiple travel websites. I used it in the past, and can tell you that I found some pretty good budget hotels. HotelCalculator allows you to easily check the availability of hotels with just a click on a button.

To get started simply choose your dates, number of guests and rooms that you require. Once done hit the “search and Compare multiple travel sites” button to start your search. The website will hardly take 15 to 30 seconds before it shows a well organised list of hotels options available for your requested dates.

What to see in

Here are some of the best destinations in Milan:

Duomo cathedral – The Duomo took about six centuries to finish. It was synonymous to an impossible task during its time. We should be thankful though that the builders pushed on putting the white and pink marbles together incorporating about 3,200 statues, 135 spires, and about 146 sets of stained glass for its windows

Teatro all Scala – Milan is the home of the opera. It is fitting therefore to see the most renowned opera house in the world here, the Teatro alla Scala. The most famous opera singers have performed here to the amazement of the six-storey high galleries. The opera season usually start on the first week of December.

The two most talked-about bars in Argentina is the Bar Isabel located in Buenos Aires, within easy reach of those who are already in the capital.

The hot hot summer is coming, it can be felt already. Nothing to do again global warming(excepted travel green, bike to the job, think environmental friendly). If you ‘ll find in a good summer day the climate unbearable, then Anchorage in Alaska is the right place for you.

Anchorage, Alaska is located slightly farther to the north than Oslo, Helsinki and Saint Petersburg. It is surrounded by mountains (Chugach Mountains) and enjoys a subarctic climate.

The city is unbelievable young, its build started in 1914 as the end of Alaska railway. Buildings from the 50’s are already historic.

 

I was very surprised in Anchorage about the length of the day, due to its nordic latitude. Also surprising for the tourists and new residents are the short daytime in winter.
