When money does not represent a problem, several world destinations become more and more interesting due to the exquisite quality of the touristic services offered to the clients.  Depending on the type of holiday you want to have, here are some of the possible alternatives. Each one of the islands is located in the middle of clean blue water and provides many hours of relaxation and tons of pleasant memories. I love spending time at these destinations, and the best part about my job, is that I can take my work with me. I can trade with Shiznit Stocks in the morning, and enjoy the beaches and scenery in the afternoon.


1. Sardinia is just one such example. The island is located in the Mediterranean Sea and it represents the perfect place for relaxing and unwinding. The beaches have all white sand, the sea water is clean and blue and every detail seems to be perfect for the tourists that step on the island.

Inland you will discover several mountains, and this provides two important categories of activities while on vacation: spending time on the beach and in the water, or hiking and climbing the nearby mountains. Especially the South of Sardinia is the perfect place for relaxing in the sun, on one of the numerous elegant beaches, or in the water, which is considered to be the bluest in the entire Europe.

The Northern part of the island also has some remote beaches with luxury yacht clubs, as well as some villages where you can discover the real life of its inhabitants. Some piazzas, bars and restaurants, as well as nice hotels are all to be found in the North of Sardinia. A lot of historical important ruins and signs of ancient civilizations can be seen on the island, and they too represent a powerful tourist attraction.


2. Barbados is the place where the luxury resorts will simply amaze you. The island boasts with very elegant hotels, outstanding restaurants and large golf courses. It is the place that attracts tourists that love sunbathing, as well as practicing some of the most popular water sports.

Numerous schools and clubs function right on the beach and they do not lack students at all! The island is tropical, so even in the dry season, from December to June, it is a pleasant place to visit. The elegant and luxurious restaurants are prepared to amaze your senses with the special local and international dishes you are going to find there.

You will be delighted to take part in the Barbados Crop Festival, which is held from June till August. During the festival you will be invited to taste different meals, drink all sorts of beverages, dance or listen to music performances.


3. Tenerife is famous another luxury destination. The island belongs to the Canary Islands and everyone on the island seems to be dedicated to making your stay there a wonderful time. The South of the islands has the largest of the resorts where the beaches will definitely charm you. The North of the island offers lush landscape and when visited, it will offer you a real understanding of the regular life on the Canary Islands.

There are about 350 kilometers / 218 miles of coastline, and as the weather is pleasant all year long, there is no wonder people come and spend their vacation there all year long, regardless of the season. Numerous luxury hotels are awaiting for you in Tenerife, most of them having the most exclusivist offers and bonuses for tourists. They all have private beaches, water sports clubs, wonderful views from the balconies and great room service.

Grand Canyon National Park

September 19th, 2013 | Posted by John in Adventures - (Comments Off on Grand Canyon National Park)

You can be one of the 5 million persons that choose to visit the Grand Canyon in a year. The Grand Canyon, 1.218.375 acres, lies on the Colorado Plateau in NW Arizona. The canyon separates the park in to North and South Rims. Vegetation, climate and scenery are totally different on each rim and this is due to the height difference. The big majority goes to the South Rim which is more accessible, is open all year long offering the possibility of admiring the world from a 2134m height. The North Rim rises 305 m higher than the South Rim and is less accessible due to heavy snows that fall and close the roads from October till May every year.

The Inner canyon is visited mostly by hikers, mule riders or river runners. If you are looking for real adventure, you could be one of the tourists that decide for a river trip or a mule ride through the Canyon. Such trips usually last longer than few days; a trip or a ride of this kind could last up to three weeks so, get well informed before you decide to get involved in one of them. You cannot go for a one day long river trip, for example. You could choose to enjoy a motorized or non motorized rafting trip. The length of these trips differ a lot, the rapid one will last up to 5 days while the slower one will last up to a minimum of 7 days.

The Grand Canyon offers great accommodation for tourists that want to spend more than one day there and the prices, for the South Rim, are somewhere between 72 USD per night to 440USD per night, depending on the tourist’s financial possibilities. If you want to visit the North Rim, the prices are between 116USD and 192USD. There is also the possibility of camping inside the Grand Canyon, at two specified locations but you do need a reservation for this.

The oldest human artifacts were dated 12.000 years behind and belong to the Paleo-Indian period. From that time till today the park has been populated by humans.

The land in the canyon is arid and is one of the most studied geological places in the entire world as specialists and students can admire three or even four eras of geological time. The canyon is the place where you can still see and admire numerous specially protected plant and animal species. There have been identified 1500 plants, 355 birds, 89 mammalians, 47 reptiles, 17 fish species. If you are lucky you could see some of them with your own eyes if Arizona and the Grand Canyon will be your next summer vacation destination.

It will cost you 25USD per car to enter the Grand Canyon National Park and this covers everyone in the car. A wise advice I have been given and that I want to share with you would be to try and get informed on the canyon before you enter it. This way you will know what to look for, what plants, animals or birds to look for and so you will benefit 100% from this trip. Once you get in the park you either park your car and walk to different the view points or take the canon shuttle that will take you to the different locations. The choice will depend on the number of visitors that will be there. Try to avoid stopping at the very first view point as it is always crowded. Resist the temptation and look for another one so that you can better admire the landscape.

If you live outside the U.S.A. you are going to need a rented car for this trip. Fortunately, there are many car rental companies that will do whatever they can to get your business, offering you special prices and free add-ons. Nevertheless, an even better solution that will help you save a lot of money is to rent the car ahead of time, together with your flight tickets; this way, you are going to get the best value for your rental.
