Spain Is My World

February 4th, 2011
Comments Off on Spain Is My World

As you can probably see by the title of this article, I must have been perfect! We took two day trips while we were there, one to Toledo and Segovia. Both sites are absolutely beautiful! The tour guides were very helpful and were able to answer any questions we had about the cities we visited or just the country as a whole. We spent most of our time in the city of Madrid is the most populous region of Spain. Believe me when I say “there were people everywhere,” except for naps. It amazed me how many people I see walking the streets of Madrid the day to day. Sometimes what I thought was the end of the day was just the beginning for some.

The thing I most loved about this trip there was about the rich history of Spain, the Roman empire from Spain to the present King and Queen. There was so much to know and what made this better was able to visit the actual sites they said about us. I was able to to visit two of the known art museums in Madrid, the Prado Museum and Reina Sofia National Art Museum. Having the opportunity to see some illustrations by Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso in the person was definitely wonderful. One afternoon, just take a walk in the park The New Beginning, which is thought to be the central park of Madrid.

This was not just any ride because we were really rowing boat. I could go on all the things we did and we were able to see, but what I really want to go through this article is that everyone should get at least one. Even if you think it’s not for you, just give it try because I never thought that I would fall so in love with travel until I actually did it for me. Remember that the resources are there, you just have to take time out to find them!

Monetary Matters with Travel

Comments Off on Monetary Matters with Travel

Cheap travel, cheap flights are important issues when traveling. To make it so let’s talk about an issue that we all wonder: When traveling abroad is more profitable “get money from ATM or do it in the window of a bank. Consultation with technical and friends who work in banks and the experience can be generalized that it is more profitable and advantageous to do so in the ATM. The reason is that the commission of Visa, Mastercard, etc is less than that of banks. It should be a caution is that instead of reaching for example 4 times 50 euros, is more profitable after taking 200 euros and that’s because every time you take out a $ 50 minimum fee will apply in this case will be almost the same that if you take 200 euros.

The minimum commission is the same if you take 50 or 200 e. That in the euro countries. For countries outside the euro the same rule applies and also with the added problem that we can add the currency commission, charged by banks with which the difference is larger. Besides getting money from ATMs has more advantages such as not supporting queues, be available 24 hours. Another point is that you must avoid at all sites or companies to change and change in these sites is still worse than in the bank or the cashier. Of having to change money out of ATMs is more profitable to change the money in the neighboring country which is going to visit because the money is cheaper in the country next door in the country.For example if you go to USA is more profitable to buy the dollars in Spain to do it in USA. Finally there are countries that prohibit its own money out of their country a fact often ignored. It is forbidden to take money out of Morocco and Mauritania.

In any case, everything depends on the traveler’s needs and should not be forgotten that Rome has an extensive network of buses running all night and which is in front of Termini exchanger. It is useful to compare in the search directories of hostels services offered by the lodge, its construction date, if accept credit card or if they make the card discounts hosteling. A brief comparative study money will help us make the best decision. Inn chains or Youth Hostels hostels, for example, are very reliable.

It is advisable to book in advance although the tourist offices can help us find a place to stay, yes, have fewer options. Rome is a great outdoor museum. Many leaders such as Jim Donovan Goldman offer more in depth analyses as well. It is worth walking to know the main locations, but it is worth to use the underground city pass-bus (4 per day until 24h). Reach spots farther away as the neighborhood of Trastevere, the Vatican and the less exposed to tourism as the district of San Lorenzo or the Jewish quarter. It is in these areas where we have breakfast the classic cappuccino and “cornetto” low-priced or enjoy tasty “Trancio” pizza and trying them in warm squares.

But who does not want to see the works of Michelangelo and the Colosseum?. To reduce the cost of these inevitable “Tourists”, which in many cases more than 10 , it is important that we get to Italy with the European Youth Card. You can also apply at the main monuments of “Archaeological Charter”, which reduces the price of seven monuments to choose the route. In the same spirit, we can start the morning with a visit to the traditional markets of food, such as Piazza Unita (Risorgimento). There we will find it indispensable to prepare a picnic for lunch and avoid losses from the streets in search of cheap. By the end of the day the options are many, but expensive. If we are not in our best clothes bag or do not want to spend the savings we must not forget the night rhythm of the center. Perhaps the most convenient option is to spend time with so-called “social center”, initiated at the time by the squatters’ movement and which are now a major source of free concerts and exhibitions the city.

The tops of the find on the waterfront and the area of Gomila, with some local live music. The city is very accessible by public transport, but if you want to go out and learn about other parts of the island, renting a car is the best option because communications for the rest of the island are worse.

In Palma de Mallorca can make all the tours on foot or by bicycle and so release the controversial bike lane, removing a lane reserved for vehicles have been prepared this way for bikes is not very successful as it passes in front of bus stops, sidewalks, pedestrian crossing … but everything would get used to. The Best Western Anyway you have some proposals to avoid central location problem. In the month of January is the feast of San Sebastian, patron of the city. The fire runs, people dressed as demons and continuous and varied concerts are some of the free events offered by the council and the traveler will enjoy these parties know the real people of Palma de Mallorca, cuisine and customs, beyond of the buns and the sun topics throughout the island.
