There are a lot of possible day trips from Reykjavik to explore the surrounding area. If you only have the chance to do one I would suggest the Golden Circle, the tour will pick you up from your hotel and return you to it at the end of the day. During the day you will see geysir - the water spout that others are named after. Whilst geysir doesn't erupt ...

It may be not better than much closer places, but a time honoured retreat from the heat has long been Ootapramund aka "Oooty", a "mere" 6 to 12 hours / 550 km from Madras (aka Chennai). How does an average June high of 18.3 and record June high of 22 C sound ? :-). Google maps view here - Ooty at about centre. Missionary children used to be sent there to ...

Based on your requirements, you've got pretty much 4 whole régions to select from. Probably easiest to tackle them in turn! The best one for your family coming in from Rhine-Main is probably the Champagne-Ardenne region. City wise, try Reims. It'll be about a 3 hour drive for you to Le Havre afterwards, but you'll get to see a lovely old town, the ...

During June you would probably want to head over to himalayas and only option from Andhra Pradesh would be taking a flight to Leh , Srinagar, Jammu. Leh is excellent option if you have 5 or more days especially since you require first day rest to get used to high altitude. Its great experience if you can manage it. Srinagar is more suitable for 2 - 3 days ...

It turned out that Flying Blue is not as restrictive as mentioned on their homepage. Even though they require you to hand in the original boarding pass, it is possible to get the miles with just the e-ticket number and any kind of proof that you paid for the flights. In my case, this was an invoice. So the answer to the question is: Send FlyingBlue an email ...

There are two effects I'm aware of: Flying westwards will lengthen your subjective days (because you're moving against the rotation of the earth and thus staying longer in the same "day" relative to the sun). For most people, this reduces the effects of jet lag - you have a longer day, which is effectively like staying up late and sleeping in, just that ...

The "Intimidator" is the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the southeast. It's located in the Carowinds Plaza near Charlotte. They seem to have a massive number of "Thrill rides". It is a bit far away (3+ hours drive) but might be worth for a day trip. Other parks closer to Myrtle beach are the Hard Rock Park, which looks a lot tamer, the Family ...

After about a year and a half of permanent travel, I've found that I actually don't need a step-down transformer. As it turns out, all of the devices I carry with me regularly can handle 110 and 220 just fine, and the odd appliance that can't is usually inexpensive to purchase at my destination. If you're a permanent traveler, the weight and bulk of a ...

Seeing the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in their hometown venue is a nice experience which will make you feel like you are back in the jazz age drinking illegally distilled spirits. That said, it is a very popular tourist venue with two seatings nightly for which you generally need to get there 30 minutes in advance. If you are there during the day ...
