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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The T3 Terminal is open throughout the night and you should easily be able to move around anywhere publicly accessible inside it. If you have a visa, you can just as easily go out. Since you mentioned you have a domestic flight, I'll assume you do have a visa. Unfortunately though, there is a lot of hustle and bustle due to international flight departures in ...

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 ...

Here are two hotel bars where you can find quality cocktails (fresh ingredients, top shelf liquor, skilled bar staff): Soaked at the Mondrian Soho hotel - they have a great punch program Gallow Green is a rooftop bar at the McKittrick Hotel. They have a serious classic cocktail program and occasionally the servers will take on characters from a bygone era ...

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 ...

Abelour - Craigellachie is kind of the heart of the matter as you'll likely want to go to the "major" items like Macallan. For another view, don't forget Scotland is both bonnie and pretty compact ... you could very much just stay in Aberdeen. It's only an hour or two drive. (Stunningly beautiful, of course.) It's perfectly commonplace to go to Speyside ...

SAMS SNOOZE AT MY SPACE may be what you are looking for. Be advised though. IGI Airport like all airports in India restricts passenger movement. Some areas are strictly meant for international transfers only. Also, check out IGI's Aiport Hotel.

Generally speaking, in the winter, the further north you go, the shorter the days are so Bruges is even worse than Vienna in this respect (night might fall a bit earlier in Vienna because it is in the same time zone as Bruges, despite being much further east, but the sun also rises earlier and the days are definitely longer). In coastal northern cities like ...

It might not fit in the timing of your weekend visit, given the route you are planning. Were it me, I'd rather go to Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples before Etna, although I'd even consider both. Actually, I'd probably head to Etna, then down to Agrigento. I'd see the Valley, and then relax on the Southerly coast and see what the waves are doing.

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 ...
