The risks of the journey

Being passionate about travel is not without risk


Travel at the end of his dreams and worship places are part of the passions of many who would not like to travel without work or even travel throughout his life without worrying about the rest?


Almost everything the world and yet travel is not always without risk, indeed when travelling should always pay attention to the places or one realises and pay attention to its business, because it is really hard to trust a stranger in this way when we know not the city.


 


I still remember when I had traveled in Germany, a young market before me with his coffee in full gear and wanting to work around this issue, he has still managed to spill coffee on my jacket on my arrival at Berlin airport.


It was then proposed to wipe me the jacket, I then accepted.


At the moment or I removed my jacket, another young arrived at full-speed for take me my small suitcase and run with, wanting the caught up with the young who was on hand my jacket made me a crooked leg and vanished with my jacket.


Fortunately for me, my passport, my phone and my wallet were in my pockets, but when a girl, this is not necessarily obvious to put it all in his pockets.


Fortunately I still had my phone, it allowed me to find my hotel in Berlin.


I would, therefore, that this experience brings you something and it allows you to beware of everything in the future when you will travel.


You should know that there is no such thing as zero risk, so it is important when travelling to be always next to its business and to have a look on our steps.


Because without his small reflexes, whether you're passionate about travel, it will be difficult to travel safely and keep good memories.

A weekend romantic in Manchester

A romantic weekend in Manchester, English culture of the 1980s, here we are!


Today we welcome a guest article written by Finn.



Leaving lovers in Manchester? You may say that this is surely not the most idyllic destination in the world and England... One would expect instead to discover Brighton two beachfront, the cry of gulls, blue sky... or well yet London which is a beautiful town with a charm and a crazy romantic. But breaking the clichés and leave to the discovery of Manchester for a weekend. I tested it for you and I came back enchanted!


For those of you who don't know much about Britain and its inevitable or through the football teams only, be aware that Manchester is a charming cultural town situated in the North-West of England. It is also a partner city of the ESL France www.esl.fr, séjours linguistiques specialist body.


During the industrial revolution, Manchester sees his territory marked by the development of many factories, especially textile, and its highly charged image "dark and industrial city.


Today, capital of an agglomeration that has more than two million and a half inhabitants, of whom 450,000 established in Manchester, it is a very attractive city! Entrepreneurs like tourists are attracted by the revival of its planning, its rich culture... and nights animated, making this city the third most visited city in England.


 


Far from being fans football, but absolutely crazy music New wave sounding well 80's, my lover and I decided to browse the city of our idols The Smiths and Joy Division to find this "so british" atmosphere and this musical culture dark that we like so much. Time for a weekend, so we went to visit Manchester.


We had previously booked a hotel on Portland Street, the major axis which descends the street of the Picadilly station where we arrived. For less than £80 night with breakfast included, you will be positioned in the heart of the city, close to the gay area and Chinatown.


One of the best ways to discover Manchester is to walk the streets on foot. The centre is not very large, which allows all access without using the tram or bus.


Visit to Manchester:


This pretty town is full of museums in any kind, I will only remember the Museum of science and industry if you have a good half-day before you. It is a free museum that extends over several hangars and fascinating exhibitions (first aircraft, evolution of computing, industrial evolution of the city of Manchester, the steam engines, etc...).


 


From there, you will not be far from the John Rylands Library, which is a magnificent neo-Gothic library established in the town since the end of the 19th century. The architecture is to fall, it looks like at Hogwarts with Harry Potter not far... Not to be missed under any circumstances!


You can then visit the Cathedral in Manchester located in the medieval quarter of the city. It is surrounded by narrow streets filled with pubs and typical shops of the corner.


Finally, for lovers of fashion, you will find two major malls ' Trafford centre ' and " Arndale Centre ". With more than 500 stores, you will not know where to give head! However, if you are looking something a little more 'unique' to bring his stay in Manchester, forget under any circumstances the famous Afflecks Palace, a kind of underground labyrinth on several floors where intermingle in vintage shops, barbers fashionable punks tattooists, dinner at the American and deco urban Wizmo.



For aficionados of Camden Town in London, you will not be familiar! Big favorite for this place!


But unlike the three quarters of tourists, we had not come there for the " Old Trafford ", stadium of the famous Manchester United team. Non. We have come to follow in the footsteps of Ian Curtis and his band legendary Joy Division, as well as to snapping our heels (especially mine) on the cobbled streets that have views born Group The Smiths.


We therefore visited monuments cults of culture New Wave, including the Factory, first label of Joy Division and first place where they played, and the Salford lads Club found on the sleeve of the album The Queen is dead by The Smiths.


Come to Manchester for music so, we finished our evening at the bend of a jazz bar where a group of Jazz Manouche played wonderfully well.


Manchester City, which is perhaps not idyllic at first, turns quickly into a good memory when you leave. We approached a culture weekend time, a language, a past charge in history. A curious weekend I keep in mind and that lulls me every day.


This city is full of wealth and is also ideal for learning English. Being a student city, many foreigners are everywhere and it is a major asset to chat in English and learn other languages in order to open up to the world. Then without hesitation, you can go to Manchester with eyes closed in order to make a nice language travel in England in love or just the time a small romantic weekend.

What to do in Croatia in love?

We are a young couple and we wish to spend a memorable holiday in love. After many research, our destination focused on Croatia - a country in southern Europe - and particularly its capital Zagreb located to the Northwest of the country.


Our trip to Croatia is idyllic, worthy of a honeymoon. This is why our choice is oriented on Zagreb, a romantic city wish. Divided into three areas - the upper town, the lower town and the new town - it offers to the tourists of the heterogeneous attractions.



In addition to its majestic monuments such as the Gothic Cathedral, the Franciscan church Gothic Saint-François with a single nave, the Romanesque-Gothic church of St. mark, the emblematic Lotrscak Tower, the Palace of the Croatian Academy of sciences and arts, the capital is also the happiness of art lovers thanks to its museums presenting the rich historical heritage of the city and works of art from around the world.


To make our stay perfect, we developed a program to fade the most fervent supporters of romanticism.


First of all, we opted for the hotel five star Esplanade Regent (rated the best Internet users) with styling years 20, rooms spacious and nicely furnished, its Mediterranean and dishes in Californian style, its cocktails and snacks so that its sauna, fitness centre, spa, wellness centre and its whirlpool. Nothing that to see the photographs of the hotel, this gives already very fancy... What do you think?


 


All two enthusiasts of culture, history, art and architecture, our trip to lovers will begin with a walk at night in the heart of the old Zagreb, in the magic of the upper town, perched on a hill, Gorjni Grad: a Montmartre to the tunes of Prague with the tranquillity of a village.


Although we prefer stories that last and the "happy ends", we then want to visit the atypical and unique Museum of hearts breezes exposing memories and testimonies of love stories of the world.


Our next step is located in the southwestern part of the city where two lakes formed by the Sava River so-called Jarun having five islands connected by bridges and are surrounded by 2500 meters of sunny beaches.


Worshiping both animals, I believe that we will be to the angels in this heavenly haven of peace. Indeed, this place is home to hundreds of species of birds and fish, aquatic animals and insects: there was not more to our happiness. Those wishing to also have the opportunity to swim, to canoeing and kayaking or rowing, knowing that lifeguards shall constantly on bathers.


The Catholic Cathedral St. Stephen built in the eleventh century and located in the upper town, in the heart of the District of Kaptol, will be our next destination. We love to discover the architecture of places of worship. Probably we also visit different churches in Zagreb.


 


Art is also one of our chemistry, our choice for the rest of the adventure naturally fell on the Museum of Art naive comprising more than 1500 works, the exhibition presenting the masters of naïve art from Croatia and the world such as Ivan Generalic, Adriana Fejes and Ivan Rabuzin.


To keep a part of mystery, we prefer to improvise on the spot in relation to our other discoveries... Will they be - no doubt - also delicious that the succulent don't we reserve the hotel of our hearts...


If like us you're going to trip, we wish you unforgettable moments...


"Stay, it does exist: but travelling is live. '' Gustave Nadaud

It is said that in general, a single article is not enough then why not you give more details in a second article on this subject? Especially since it was an article to spark your interest, but it would seem that it has not received the expected result.



It is for this reason that said us that we will try to give a little more detail in this article this time.

Deauville: City of elegance and chic

If one were to cite that one city that is the true representative of the chic in France, it would be Deauville. Activity center of fashion, art, history and riding in almost all its forms, this city is part of the Calvados, in Normandy.


Indeed, our very famous and envied revolutionary Coco Chanel opened one of its first stores in Deauville, this city where exhibitions, equestrian events, and concerts occur (almost) as fast as lightning and not alike! You can stay in one of the hotels in Deauville, to take full advantage of the activities available for a few days of relaxation. But you might want some more details?



Deauville has long attracted many creators in all genres, including fashion designers, with top list our famous Coco Chanel, who opened his second store in 1913, at Deauville, whose sign was at the time Gabrielle Chanel, and, thanks to the good works of his British lover, Boy Capel (there them still a utility to these men...!)
Then, to do homage to all those spirits flowing ideas unique and inimitable, the city of Deauville organizes a few Saturdays in the year guided tours on some of these creators.


Deauville is particularly active at the level of events, exhibitions, festivals, etc.
To cite just two examples, one can speak of the Easter Festival, which begins April 27, the most famous in Europe one of the festivals of Chamber music; or the American Film Festival, from 30 August to 8 September, whose purpose is to promote independent films American in Europe, festival that exists all the same since 1975, and annually presents about 100 films, in the presence of stars and directors! It is as in Cannes, the climate in less...
According connoisseurs, it is an art also, so I have to mention also the 55th edition of the World Festival... the Bridge!


Deauville and its region are obviously known for their proximity with the unfortunately famous d-day beaches, but there are many other points of attraction than these morbid and respectable remnants of the second world war which cost us both.
For example, the Villa Strassburger, characteristic villa Belle Epoque originally command of baron Rothschild, erected in 1907, at the location of the hill farm, formerly owned by the writer Gustave Flaubert.


City of horses


Well Yes, in this city it is almost literally breathes the chic and class, horses, these animals of perfect beauty and the infinite goodness we wear and pretend to obey us according to our whims, have a prominent place. Can be accessed in many competitions of jumping, dressage, aerobatic or polo matches at auctions (where it is quite normal to sell a foal of a year more expensive than your salary of 10 years... What do you want, the luxury is not deemed to be cheap!), not to mention the very famous horseracing DeauvilleAll renowned for its horses only for its... hats! Moreover, Pole horse International, Deauville will be part of the reception area of the next World Equestrian Games in 2014.


City of regime... or not


In fact, it depends on what you call plan. In the strict sense of the term, a diet is not necessarily low-calorie, so we can talk about the Norman regime... which, by dint of creams and butters, is anything but Dietetics, believe me (and for the beach is better)!



Here for a course more than brief introduction the comprehensive inventory of the possibilities at Deauville taking pages just for the next six months. You'll find what to do in this city, certainly luxurious, but charming non...? In any case, you will come back lighter... Finally, especially your wallet! But you only live once, is not it?


About the author:Amélie Michel is passionate about since his childhood by horses, and it was quite natural for her to make her career. Today, it is parts of the organizing teams of the Hippodrome de Deauville.

A flight to New York would be really conducive to discover everything that one might see on television including the different areas of Brooklyn or manhattan, Times Square, the Empire State Building & Top Of the Rock, Central Park, SOHO, the Statue of liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, etc.


Although we would like to travel to the United States and first in New York, you should know that New York is not the only city that will appeal to lovers, it seems that Chicago (with the Lake Michigan or Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park) and Florida (Miami Beach, Orlando) are also what make the difference or the Bahamas...

A weekend of history at Carcassonne

If you do not have enough time to take real vacations, or maybe not the means, it is an opportunity to simply go on a weekend. which does not mean that you need to bother you! A perfect destination is Carcassonne, with its more than appealing weather (especially with the extremely unfortunate time we had this winter, a little sun would not hurt) and its concentration of possible historical tours. From the medieval city, the Castle, until the various museums or even the Basilica, each history buff can be found in this southwestern city for a little corner of paradise, where just to stay in one of the hotels in Carcassonne, this catarrh, as base for recover you from your excursions in time and space.

It is in Carcassonne that intersect two existing communication channels since antiquity, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, and the Massif Central to the Spain. The city consists of two distinct parts; the city, which is a plateau on the right bank of the Aude, with the St Louis Bastide which extends on the left bank, and the old quarter of la Trivalle with its famous old bridge.

The city of Carcassonne is first and foremost a medieval city fortified and built on a rocky spur already occupied by humans in the 6th century in the form of a Gallic habitat. I.e., if it has the bottle!
On the West side, we find the very interesting Castle of the Viscounts of Carcassonne, the of Trencavel.
But there are many more things to see in this medieval city, such as the St Nazaire Basilica, already partly standing in 925, the door narbonensis, the gate of dawn, or even the Théâtre de la Cité, heart of its famous festival.

On the opposite bank (for the stunned, spoken of the right bank!) stands the Bastide St Louis, jewel of the current town, and bounded by the boulevards landscaped in the 18th and 19th centuries on the site of the former fortified ditches. The various measures of defenses of the city over time led to the construction of 4-door to the four cardinal points. This "bastide" presents a regular checkerboard plan centered on the Carnot square with its famous fountain of Neptune (1770), instead of the Carcassonne market on Saturday morning.

Without going far away from the city itself, greenery and/or kilometres walk, lovers can certainly find their account. You will discover the Canal du Midi as you walk along its banks on foot or by bike, or even on a boat rental. Or, you can browse, on foot, by bike or, why not, on horseback, in part and or in full (or even downright make a round trip if you don't really know what to do with your legs) trail Peiras e vinhas leading you hills of the city, to the Abbey of St Hilaire, journeying part and of the Valley of the Lauquet.
In all cases, you will have the leisure to discover and appreciate a fauna and flora of exception.

If it should be only one reason to love the France, it would be for his ability to have a unique gastronomy in its kind in what region is important to me, and Carcassonne does not escape this rule. At the crossroads of the culinary influences of the Mediterranean with its fish, shellfish and crustaceans, the Massif Central (cured meats, game, trout) and opulent Gascony with its famous foie gras and confits, Carcassonne offers the pleasant opportunity to hand you your tribulations in nature or historical tours. Imagine that there is even in this city, in the heart of the triangle Toulouse-Montpellier-Barcelona, a universal Academy of the Cassoulet!

About the author: Student, Master of medieval history, Jean-Baptiste Drouot found its base of dream in Carcassonne. Student during the year academic and tourist guide in the summer, it fully utilizes his passion in sharing.

Organize his visit of Tolar Grande in Argentina

In a previous post I had already mentioned the destination of Tolar Grande, which is located in the region of Salta. Since then, I have received quite a few requests for information on this trip not to be missed on a trip to Argentina. And for good reason, it is a little jungle tour operators to get there.


First of all, I would warn anyone who wants to get there on their own. It is an isolated and destination at an altitude of more than 4600 meters above sea level and located several hours drive from Salta. Communications by mobile phones are nonexistent in this village, except with a GPS phone. There are no reported roads or signs of movement to go to Tolar Grande. It is to the track across sand dunes. It is not more, hell to go there but you must be careful not get lost or end up blocking in this desert both the passages of cars are scarce.


Here you are well advanced that I present to you a destination with landscapes of dreams and whose access is very limited. Don't worry, there are a lot of agencies on Salta which offers this unforgettable output. The problem is that prices vary greatly from one provider to another. By the way check the displayed currency type. Some display it in dollars (USD) and others in Argentine pesos (ARS). Personally we had chosen the Agency oneromwolrdtravel to Tolar Grande, it was the least expensive and the most 'responsible tourism'. It is a local agency that use a driver and a guide living in this village and reverse a portion of the funds for the development of the village. The price has risen lately to 1200 pesos for an output of 3 days / 2 nights in this area. It includes a go / return of San Antonio Los Cobres - Tolar Grande and the night in a refuge or homestay. During these 3 days we discover exceptional sites such as Ojos del mar, the Salar of Arizaro, Agua Calientes...


This output is to plan long in advance because the departures are not every day. Only disadvantages of the Oneromworldtravel Agency, they do not speak French and ask a deposit via Western Union which is not very well known to French. But it would be a shame to deprive themselves of these fabulous scenery during your trip to Argentina.


While either by the agency or another, go ahead and feel free to leave me a comment at the bottom of page for or me ask me for info or to tell your experience!

Go to the South of france: Corsica

Leave in Corsica during summer holidays is a lighthouse for the French loving going on family vacations. For those who have modest incomes, Corsica is really a place to go at least once. Even for those who have incomes higher, Corsica is the place to be.

I could go there some time ago with my friends, and I was able to visit places such as beaches or even small villages Corsican with lots of charm. There are lots of things to see in Corsica. You can go there with friends and sunbathe in the Sun on the Corsican beaches or even make a small trip to lovers to enjoy beautiful landscapes and everything that one can find the bottom. For example, you can taste the gastronomy of the region. There are plenty of products to try Corsican. If you go there by lovers, this is the right opportunity to a small romantic dinner in head to head and followed by a stroll along the beaches.  If you're rather cultural you can also visit all the museums that can be found in Corsica. It is best to choose in advance the museums that you want to see because there are many. You can find lists on the internet if you wish.
Then you can also go see, the most touristic places around. There are for example: the cliffs of Bonifacio, the gorges de la Restonica or even the famous calanques. I was able to go there with my half, had taken a small charming hotel room not very far from a beach. This allowed us to be able to rely on the beach at night.

Costa Rica - Between nature and mass tourism

My name is Vincent Varenne, I am the author of the Green Costa Rica blog. To introduce you to Costa Rica in a few words, know that this is first and foremost a nature destination with a flora and beautiful to discover at least once in his life.

I like to describe this country by its diversity, with its large volcanic chain that crosses the territory and its 116 volcanoes, of which 5 still in activity as the Poas Volcano. But it is also a very dense tropical rainforest, large beaches of black sand, many national parks distributed throughout the country... A priceless treasure for lovers of nature!

Still need to choose the right season to come and visit this beautiful country, as tourism develops in more recent years. Costa Rica welcomes more than 2 million visitors per year, largely American, Canadian and European. Everything is done for tourism here, it has even become the first source of income for the country before the coffee and bananas. So, how to enjoy the charms of the Costa Rica without the inconvenience of the tourist flow?

Well, it's pretty simple, and this will avoid much disappointment and you will make savings, believe me. Because in high season, i.e. from December 15 to April 15, the prices double almost over the off-season, either for business or for hotels. I advise you therefore to come either late April - early may, in November or early December: these are the best two periods in my opinion because it is in low season and in parallel, or just before or after the rainy season.

 

But even if you come during the rainy season, contrary to everything that can be said, it will enjoy a true and beautiful vegetation of a bright green and bright, beautiful, and not land extremely dry. I personally find much prettier nature like this. And during the rainy season, it's very nice in the morning, so you can benefit fully from 5 o'clock in the morning at 13 or 14 hours under a bright sun.

With passion and objectivity, I share every day my experience of the country with many readers, whether they are passenger or that they wish to settle in Costa Rica, and as if I gave advice to a friend. Then, if it makes you want, come join me in this incredible adventure of Costa Rica, directly on the Green Costa Rica blog. I will help you to organize your trip with pleasure!

Costa Rica is a destination I discovered 2 years ago, after a romantic encounter with Melissa, a Costa Rican with whom I am now married. I am very happy to live in the Sun even if, as in any country, there are drawbacks here, too. But life remains very nice and my adventure gave birth to my new book: happy in the Sun - the guide practice to succeed its installation in Costa Rica. To discover!

Peru, a country that changed europe

The Peru is a destination that is not all, and this is still a pity, because this country has all the qualities required to enjoy a great holiday.
I love the exotic countries, which allow to see something other than what we can see in places like New York, Los Angeles or even Tokyo. I love to see other civilizations. If you like the thrill and make voyages other than ordinary trips I advise you to get a small trekking to the Peru.
There are plenty of places to do trekking in this wonderful place. You do not know what is trekking? It is in fact a kind hiking in a mountainous region. It's a way to be more closely and be in contact with nature.

I think if you want to change in your travels abroad, this is exactly what you should do. But you can also do trekking in France, just find places to make. Sleeping under the stars and really the best way, I think, to spend the holidays with friends and even lovers. You can also do not do trekking all the time. Indeed there is civilization also to the Peru, so you can make a break in your hiking and go enjoy the magnificent scenery of cities. You can also taste to the traditions of the country. You will be amazed at the beauty of landscapes, but also in the taste of regional products of the country. About trekking, you can easily see the beauty of the surroundings. With trekking, you can also access and be able to enjoy a famous and very beautiful place which is Machu Picchu. This place really is the place to see once in a lifetime, I find. It is a truly magical place, if you go to the Peru, you really do have to miss this place. In the places to see also out there, there are for example: Lima, the beautiful capital of the Peru, make a small walk on Lake Titicaca, or even the lines of Nazca and Trujillo and the ruins of Chan Chan, located north of the country.

I really advise you to go to the Peru if you want to do trekking and return home with stars in their eyes, landscapes are really extraordinary and there are really a lot of things to see, visit and discover. Come and discover the Peru, you will not be disappointed, I can assure you. You will come back at you with eyes full memories, full bag and full of things to tell your friends.

Council tour of the year: China

I'm a fan of Asian culture, so I wanted to take a ride in my favorite Asian country. Since a little while I decided to make me a 'Asian Trip' but I didn't have the time or money to do so.
At the moment, I am on vacation, and I managed to raise enough money to make me this little tour of Asia. First, I'll make a small trip to China. China is a great country and therefore, the monuments to visit are many. I wanted, first of all visit the famous wall of China which is known all over the world, because many of the scenes in the world of cinema has used this place. Which gave me want to visit this wall, that is the beauty of the landscape and of course to be in a place where many movies have been filmed.
It is always a pleasure to be there where famous people have made their appearance. I've been wanting to visit the forbidden city, it is an imperial palace which is really worth to be visited. Many of my friends who have had the chance to make a short stay in China have advised me this place. I also want to see the great Buddha of Leshan and the summer palace that me look really beautiful. I could also not miss Hong Kong which is a city that everyone knows. I really want to be able to do some shopping in a city as nice. I have friends everywhere in the world and therefore also in China. Trip there will allow me to be able to visit them. So it's interesting, because I could improve my English with them. Also, a friend advised me to try Tai chi.

Going to China, I want to be able to taste the real Asian food. Of course, can be found in France in Chinese restaurants, but it's always better when on the outside frame that goes with.

Visit Santander in Spain

I take this bridge of Ascension to write this article about the city of Santander in Spain. I had the opportunity to visit the region of Cantabria last year and the time I was missing for detailing you my stay.

Located on the Cantabrian coast north of the land of the Spain, Santander I was pleasantly surprised by its charm and its Bay ranked among the most beautiful bays of the world.

Built in 1912 the Palace was intended for the royal couple Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eurgenia. Today it serves as the palais des Congrès and is open to the public. Access is completely free, which is quite rare for a royal domain. Also, we enjoyed this visit to discover the 28 hectare park which adjoins the Magdalena Palace and houses a small zoo (seals, swans, penguins, ducks..). A trip not to be missed!

This church with its particular style Gothic has been rebuilt many times during its history but remains a magnificent book. It can be visited free of charge every day and (also free) guided tours are offered throughout the summer at 10: 00.

Located a short walk from my hotel (that I also found on this site), this building is the hub of the city. The Porticada square includes shops, cafés, restaurants and of course the Town Hall. There are also all bus lines.

For lovers of games of chance, don't miss the casino of Santander. It is located on the beach "del Sardinero" and accessible all days for adults. Personally I'm not a big fan of casinos, but I must recognize that the architecture of "Gran Casino del Sardinero" and its geographical location makes it unavoidable.

As you may realize, Santander is still unknown and is full of interesting places. We also appreciated its gastronomy and the famous Queso Picón (blue cheese from goats of the peaks of Europe). So if you have a few days of available you can go in one of the most beautiful bays of the world and at a lower cost!

Travel while having fun during the dead time

To go on a trip to family, it is sometimes complicated, especially for children who are bored during the duration of the trip. Indeed, when taking the plane for several hours, children sometimes forget that they are in a plane and this disturbs other passengers. I found you several ideas in order to occupy a child during the duration of the trip.
Firstly, the electronic video games. You can give your kids to games such as a ds, a psp or others yet. This occupied him during his trip. If you have a smartphone, you can also lend him so he plays for applications. Indeed, there are some games that are all the rage at the moment with the children such as Temple Run 2. It's a game to be completely omnibule by the phone and so he will not speak. It's a good way for they do not make noise during the duration of a flight for example. You can also read a book. Nowadays, few children enjoy reading, although it is an opportunity to make her understand that read is very good for him and for his imagination. A child in need of much imagination to grow properly. A little stimulated child will be more evil in his future. Then, there's the music.
A lot of child now have ipods to listen to music. He will speak so not, and listen to his music in silence. Otherwise, the simplest so he is not bored I think, is to have fun with him, while remaining discreet enough to not annoy other passengers. On a train, happening yet, but if you are in a plane, those present will like not too bothered. For example, there is an application that I play me even with my little sister when she comes at me where when we see, it is Talking Tom Cat 2. It is a small cat that speaks and you can also have fun with him. It is a small virtual cat very endearing to children. Personally, my little sister love playing with him. There are also other ways to deal with your child.

Give pens and white sheets to drawings, or even if you have a touch pad you can now do so draw on without felt and leaves, although I find it less stimulating for the child than a good white sheet. If you do not stuff, you can just as well discuss with him during the trip. It won't feel forsake and he will be happy to talk to you about his school or of its activities. There are lots of way to occupy a child during a trip, feel free to use your imagination.

Go to Djerba

At the moment, it is across the Mediterranean Sea to go to find a bit of Sun. The "molar" of Africa, the island of Djerba, attracts tourists since the 1960s. Indeed, this island which is located 500 km from Tunis, capital of Tunisia, has the form of a molar with three roots. These three roots are the Bine El Oudiane, Ras Terbella and Ajim peninsulas. Here are a few sites not to be missed if you decide to spend your holidays in Djerba, but I will lower a small precision that seems important on holiday in Tunisia.


El Borj El Kebir is a fortress which was built at the end of the 16th century. You can walk on the promontory and admire the view over Cap Mahdia.


El Bordj El Rouss or more commonly called "Tower of skulls" was erected in 1560 with skulls of Spanish soldiers defeated to remind Christian enemies what awaited them if they were considering the reconquest of the island. The old structure was changed by a memorial stone so that the bones and skulls of the Christian soldiers can be buried...


RAS Rmel, also called Larache Beach, consists of sand dunes that are perpetually moving towards the sea. You will also find the island for flamingos: fishermen from the port of Houmt Souk have used to take tourists visit the island aboard their boats. It is also possible to get there by pirates Galleon, release organized by many hotels, with a more or less questionable taste. But beware, don't expect to see flamingos pink year-round, they are there the winter during their migration.


The Roman catacombs of El-Fahmine together 2 cellars dug into the limestone. They date from the 4th century AD. In the first cave, one can see 9 tombs and in the second at least seven.


Meeting tanning by sea to return with a few colors to work!


It is the latter I recommend you also to give priority to Djerba. Tunisia, in contrast to the Morocco, is not very attractive in cultural terms. However the beaches of fine white sand are beautiful, it is hot most of the time (Djerba is South of the Tunisia). I found interesting offers on the pretapartir.fr site, but you can also ask your usual branch if she can nothing suggest. There is quite a lot of promo on Tunisia in recent years, making the destination very cheap.


It's time to pack your bags and go taste the pleasures of the Sun at lower cost, because at the moment in France, the climate is not the fixed beautiful...

At the end of the road, travel blog by Jean Philippe

My name is Jean-Philippe and I love the road. Not cars, mine does well its ten years, its 200,000 km, but the road with a large R. This Ariadne's thread of our travels, which gives us a great feeling of freedom, even if it is strange, this is a strip of bitumen from a few metres wide. But I love roll, see scroll landscapes, leave early, arrive late, take les chemins de traverse, rutted roads and see what's at the end of the road. From work at 10 p.m. Sunday and see the sunrise on Venice Monday morning. This is what I like.


Starting from this principle, with my half Delphine, we started to travel. Afford escapades in Italy, the Iceland tour, go at the end of the road in Quebec and across the United States. Camera around his neck, book in one hand and camera in the other. Stitches in time, we started to post our photos and then blogging on http://www.alafindelaroute.com


The purpose of our blog, put the finger on both iconic places and unusual things, go to the meeting of animals, open spaces and cities. Getting married in Las Vegas, eating the alligator in Florida, afford a classy meal on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, go closer to the whales at Mingan, Northern Quebec, discover a cave in Iceland... Small experiences that we capsized (or not) and you want to share, practical advice to support.

Cave in Iceland


We caught the virus in the United States. A crazy love. A country where the road is at the center of everything. A religion. In 2008, we discovered the East Coast, Montreal (Quebec) in Key West. In 2011, Cape on the SouthWest with California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. In 2012, we made the bet to cross the country in 30 days, Seattle, Northwest, in Miami to the Southeast. And in 2013 we will travel the roads of South, of San Diego, California, to Savannah, Georgia. With these roadtrips, we also want to show that there is something other than reducing triptych New York-Miami-Los Angeles, that the United States is not only buildings and burgers, the image of this country and continent is biased. They are multiple and different, that one can also marvel in South Dakota, Wyoming or Kentucky, the nature and animals here have a prominent place.


Then, did not hesitate to visit us a little, to ask for some advice. As to ensure the road to an end, it also needs a start. See you soon.

Holidays in Prague

Since my arrival in Prague, dimmed by the curiosity and emotion, I hobbled to combat the fatigue of travel, or at least to postpone it for a few hours, to begin my excursions.
I had often heard from Charles Bridge and I decided to go there. On the docks, the promenade was extremely pleasant and, apparently, a crowd of passers-by and tourists shared my feeling. Here and there, musicians and other artists from the streets attracted the attention of onlookers. At the end of the bridge, it told stairs with a charming to visit square and a small friendly Park where I made a short stop. I thus shambled a few hours the time that my mind starts to land smoothly and achieve the magnificent landscapes that were available to him.
On this momentum, I couldn't resign myself to already seek shelter for the night. I wanted too much to live one of these famous night evenings in Prague. After a small cruise one hour approximately, on the River, departing from the Charles Bridge, I me attablai in the first restaurant that I met. Then, I had only the embarrassment of the choice facing the wide range of bars and lively pubs. I noticed in passing that the Prague are extremely warm and welcoming to strangers.

For the remainder of my stay, I couldn't avoid the inevitable: the famous Prague Castle with its typical guards statement. I then spent the rest of the day to wander between the old town and the Jewish quarter.  It is a responsible area of an extremely rich history, dating back to the middle ages. I visited the old Jewish cemetery, the various synagogues. I could also climb to the top of the Tower of the Town Hall.

There, the view is breathtaking. What hit especially, is the architecture of the houses. I stopped lunch in a small restaurant, although the prices around the old town are particularly high, especially for tourists. The next day, I turned around Charles Bridge which I had been able to overcome the first day of my stay, to discover, not far, street Mostecká, at the end of which is the Church of St. Nicholas. Admission is charged, but the visit is worth the detour. The Interior of the Church is truly splendid. Other visitors explained that Mozart would have played the organ in this church. The last day of my stay was not without a certain emotion. I spent it in the Nové Mesto district, which means 'new city '. I was very intrigued by a small museum located on the street Na Prikope and tracing the history of Czechoslovak Communism from 1921 to 1989.
I then walked in the direction of Narodni Street, offering a show of beautiful modern sculptures. I continued my visit to the national theatre, at the end of the street. I still had time, leaving the street, crossing dock Masarykovo, to see the famous Ginger and Fred building with its only original architecture and its appearance "dancing."

Visits to Barcelona

With a few days during the bridges of the month of may, I decided to leave the greyness of the Lyon region to return to Barcelona an umpteenth time. I'm starting to well know the Catalan capital but we view each time new places to see. In this article I will list 4 other activities / places to discover in outgoing Barcelona a little traditional such as the Sagrada Familia, Parc de la Ciutadella, Parc Güell...


This trip to Spain, will also make the full of products that is not as good as in France as the chorizo, olive oil or el lomo. These 2 days in Barcelona will allow us to make the following activities:


This Park is located on a hill overlooking the city of Barcelona. There is also the Church of the sacred heart with its statue like 2 drops of water resembling the Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro. Access to the Park is either by car or by tram or funicular still. Views of Barcelona is splendid and the amusement park we will be having a good time.



This means of transport to get to Montjuïc is often confused with the funicular. However are 2 very different things. The cable car takes on the Barceloneta and connects the San Sebastia tower with the World Trade Center Jaume Tower and finally the Miramar (Montjuïc). There is thus a view on la Barceloneta and the parc de la Ciutadella.


The visit to the Museum is coupled with that of the impressive Stadium of FC Barcelona. The visit is a bit expensive (€25) but for the football fans we do not count.


This visit of the aquarium is provided in case of bad weather on Barcelona. This is a great area with more than 11,000 fish and 35 aquariums including the famous underwater tunnel. Thus, it runs through the middle of sharks, stingrays and other sea creatures.


This small cheap stay must be organized taking into account the weather (replace the Tibidabo Park by the aquarium) and also the football stage matches.


These visits change that could make so far in Barcelona but we are always happy to visit this city and enjoy the Catalan gastronomy.

And if you were going to make a trek to the Nepal?

Looking for a different style of travel? Travel by families in the capitals of the countries provide you more as fun than before?
I propose in this article an any kind of journey that will appeal to all people who love the sport, but also travel. I advise you to make a trek to the Nepal, for example. Indeed, a trek is a way to go on an adventure, a trip to the nature where there is far from civilization and all human constructs. You can do this in the mountains, forests, deserts, and other places where few people go.
It is a kind of survival, you must walk for several days and you must feed you on your own. Although this may seem a bit dangerous, it is any other way of visiting a place. You can tell your trip by having another more in-depth vision of the landscape of a country known. In Nepal, contrary to what one may think, you will have no trouble to do the tracking. I think that's really an experience to live, you are in direct communication with nature from another country, it is a way to be closer to the country you are visiting. On the other hand, I do not advise it you if you're afraid of wild beasts or even that you don't want to sleep in beds of hotels when travelling. Because in this kind of stay, you will not really have comfort and you can enter many wild beasts that you have never imagined to be able to meet one day outside a zoo.

Personally, I think that I could do this just to be able to see things that nobody has seen. Take pictures of the magical places that can be found by doing a trek, this is something unique. For example, I would like to do a trek in the mountains. Certainly is a bit dangerous, because can fall or get hurt and not being able to call relief, but I think that the views of all the surroundings can really make this trekking is a unique stay in the country of our choice. I love to travel, but I really had the opportunity to travel with all the comforts, i.e. hotel and power dining in fine restaurants and others. But I would really like to see another vision of my favorite countries.

You can also make trekking in France if you want. How about you? Think you can be able to do a trek in a country such as nopal or another if you want? If you be, do not hesitate, this is a great way to travel.

Testimony of a trip to Italy part 3

Continued in part 2 and part 1.

Before speak you of Rome that I visited during the same stay, must be that I'm talking about a few moments of the Genoese side that you browse night to see, from the top of the mountains, the coastal towns glow and reflected in the sea.


I should tell you about Verona also where you will see the most famous balcony of Shakespearean literature. Florence, the city of the Medicis, deserves a trip alone. Pisa... Finally, let's go back to this journey that has led me to Rome, and first at the Vatican.

No need to be Catholic, or another, to enter and visit this enclave. You are greeted by a colonnade immense and beautiful place where the faithful gather. St. Peter's Basilica shows this as the time of the Italian Renaissance, at the time of arts and the omnipotence of these large families, most magnificent product. The fresco of the last judgement, the dome, the magnificence of the Vatican Library, each millimetre is worked, decorated, to highlight the achievements of Italian art.

Visit Florence in Italy, the "Museum city".

If I tell you that I left on vacation in Italy, you will tell me that there's nothing more romantic than Venice or more timeless than Rome. And you'll have reason, except that my heart balance rather on the side of Florence.
Florence, it is the city of the Medicis, the city of the Italian Renaissance, of a past is steeped in history. Starting in Florence, it's kinda make a trip in time. However, no need to be poured into the history books to appreciate the flavor and no need to practice the Catholic religion to enter one of the many churches in the city. The Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, beautifully surmounted by a dome and flanked by a Bell Tower, is one of the icons of the city. At the health Croce Basilica are nothing less than Michelangelo, Machiavelli o even Galileo. These churches and many others are all to discover from the outside than from the inside. The Gallery of Offices, the largest museum in the city, houses a masterpiece as the Annunciation of Leonardo da Vinci or the tables of Botticelli and Titian. The passion for beautiful stones and beautiful paintings has widely enough to satisfy their curiosity in this town that was at the time the cultural capital of the world.

Let's say that regardless of how to visit Florence, it will not escape its history. It is not possible to not in the city centre, class 10, Unesco World Heritage, without seeing a perfectly preserved historic building. Florence is also a town built around the River Arno, river that runs through the city as a share.  Therefore, many bridges traverse the city and the most famous is probably the Ponte Vecchio. Like the Rialto in Venice, it is both bridge, pedestrian and shopping for silversmiths of luxury. Linking the two parts of the city in its heart, it is a must-see.

Florence is a city that has few equals in Europe and offers to those who visit a panorama of European culture. However, if you want to enjoy, choose get there preferably in the spring. You will avoid the heat and the endless rows of tourist. Consider including book, via internet, the «firenzacard», a free access to all pass the molted city and with priority entry. A last trick for the road if you visit Florence with children. Try the Museum of Leonardo da Vinci. Younger guests can try to manipulate re-enactments of Da Vinci experience. Playful and informative.

Florence, this is therefore, a city that a perpetual tribute to the most beautiful moments of artistic creation in Europe.
