Things You Should Never Do When You’re in Las Vegas

When you’re in Sin City, you can naturally get carried away. And why shouldn’t you? With all the light shows and the booze, this seems like a city filled with infinite possibilities—for the weekend anyway, when there are the best Las Vegas shows. However, if you’re really smart, you won’t do anything you’d regret when you’re on your plane ride home.

Getting married and losing more money than you planned are the most obvious no-nos. You’d be surprised though at the common mistakes people do in Las Vegas which made it to our list.

Use the Casino’s ATMs

A surefire way for you to lose money fast in Las Vegas is to use the ATMs located at the Casinos. These things can charge you anything between $2 and $6 per transaction, and what’s worse is they’re legally allowed to charge these fees. It’s close to getting held up, except that you chose to lose that money.


Most Spiritual Destinations on Earth

Believing in a God, whatever is His name, makes a human stronger. Every believe has its sacred places, with a magnetic effect against people embracing that believe. A spiritual destination is first of all a sacred place, when you feel yourself nearer to your God and some related legends. A spiritual destination is strongly enhanced if hosting the remainings of a saint.
And now a serious question only for the professional traveler: is the pilgrimage a form of tourism or not? Even if you answer “Yes” to this question, you must accept that is a very special one, as fun and entertainment are not at all important things during a pilgrimage.

Italy is a beautiful country full of history, stunning landscapes and passionate people, and with over 4,000 miles of coastland one of the most relaxing and enjoyable ways of seeing the country is with a Italian Cruise.

Most Italian cruises depart from one of the several major ports in Italy itself such as Civitavecchia in Rome, so you will need to fly out from the UK first before you can board. If you want to go on one of the longer cruise coast to coats cruises you may be restricted to departing from ports like Genoa on the Ligurian Peninsula.

A typical cruise will combine a mixture of culture and outstanding scenery and will give you the opportunity to visit some of the Italy’s beautiful little coastal villages and towns that are far from the main tourist routes.

When the snow starts, it is time for the winter gear to get out of the storage and it is time to think of your winter activities. There is more to winter than skiing so if you do not like the idea of gliding down the slopes, here are some of the best travel destinations for you this season:

Zermatt in Switzerland

Winter destinations

Take a ride on the red train called Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn and enjoy the amazing vista of the dazzling Alps. The small liner journeys from Zermatt going to St. Moritz or Davos through 291 bridges and jaw-dropping scenery. It is the slowest express train you will take but every second of the 7.5 hour trip is worth it.

From Zermatt, the Gornergrat Bahn will bring you thru fairytale forests and alpine meadows as it goes up the Gornegrat. When the weather is excellent, the Matterhorn will be in full view. When you get to your destination, you can relax, enjoy the panorama, and some hot fondue.
