Cuba, Carribbean Largest Island

The largest and most popular island in the Caribbean Sea is Cuba. It consists of the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean Sea to the south. The shape of this island is like an alligator. Half of Cuba’s territory is made up of forested mountains. Cuba is an island with vibrant art, soul-stirring music and villages cloaked in colonial charm. Cuba is famous for music that has influenced the other musicians worldwide. It is a home to nine UNESCO world heritage sites and a population as warm and scintillating as its tropical climate and colorful arts. The capital of Cuba is Havana. Cuba main religion is Catholicism.

What draws people to the Caribbean island of Cuba is much more than beaches and sun. The country can be visited in any season. This is a safe country to travel alone as a single woman or even with children.

Things to do in Cuba:

SMOKE A CUBAN CIGAR: Cuban cigar is that kind which one must never miss. It is a must to smoke a real Cuban cigar. But the best Cuban cigars come from the tobacco farms grown in the Valle de Vinales.

HAVANA TOUR: Ride in a CLASSIC Car, remove photos and enjoy an hour of HAVANA city tour. Whenever you end up travelling in Cuba a ride in an old classic car is a must. Picture rolling through Havana in a restores cabriolet, wind in your hair as you listen to classic salsa on the radio.

Salsa still runs through the veins of every Cuban. Salsa moves seems as if they are walking naturally. The dance culture in Cuba is all about doing it together. For a crash course hang out during salsa night at the outdoor club 1830 and fall into the step with a local.

See live music everywhere in Cuba. Visit the famous club La Zorra, Y El Cuervo or just stop at the association of Cuban writers and artist and you might find a Grammy winner on the sax. Apart from jazz there is also amazing son music, trova, danzon and much more. Havana brims with Cuba’s best nightlife, which hinges on music and dancing. Bars and clubs are plenty. Kick off the night with a daiquiri.

Watch the sunset from EL Morro: it is a 16th century fortress that was also used as a prison for many years. Now it is an excellent vantage point where you can catch beautiful Atlantic sunsets. Every night at 9 p.m. a ceremonial canon is fired from the fortress walls.

Enjoy Cuban rum: rum is cheap and easy to find in Cuba. But some take back home or relax on a palm tree lined beach sipping a mojito in the sun.

Many entrepreneurs are focusing on street food. Try pork hamburgers, fruit milkshakes and coconut pies to name a few.

BARACOA is a little known slice of paradise in Cuba. It is the oldest city in the country this town has a secluded black sand beach, peaceful streams, crashing waterfalls to explore and bathe in, and lush forest. Many visitors come to hike YUNQUE a mountain famous for its flat top that offer incredible view of the sea.

Varadero is Cuba’s most illustrious resort town and with over 3000 miles of coastline, you can have your pick of beach spot, from bustling locals near Havana to hidden gems on the islands less frequented stretches. Its magnificent white sand beaches draw visitors from around the world. The beaches near Havana are a more affordable day trip as are the beaches in the provinces. Varadero is like Cuba’s south beach more of a destination.

Major hotels brands like Starwood are starting to set up shop in Cuba and mainstream cruise ship is setting sail. Casas particulares essentially Cuban B&Bs, are very economical and authentic way to experience local culture. You may be sharing common spaces with most of the families.

Though traveling to Cuba is really challenging. The country’s favorable climate, captivating history, beautiful beaches, swinging salsa rhythms and ubiquitous mojitos are fair compensation indeed.

Most Dangerous Cruise Port In The World

There are so many who want to unwind and have a good time, one best way are by taking a cruise. Those with long vacation may use cruise ship so that they have a long experience journeying on water. The destination of a person should not be based on what they want, but more of how safe is the destinations.

There’s a quote “A SHIP IN THE HARBOUR IS SAFE” But that’s not true. Sometimes a ship in a harbour isn’t safe and neither its passengers. There are cruise ports around the world which are dangerous, especially sometimes they get robbed, hurt, kidnapped or killed. There are lot of criminal activities going on at different countries. It is therefore good to be caution when choosing the following cruise ports.

So how can you judge which ports to avoid and to be cautious about?

ROATAN HONDURAS: this island looks like a Caribbean paradise. It is surrounded by crystalline waters that make for world class beach and scuba experiences. But this country Honduras has not been able to get its rate of violent crime under control. Many cruise lines like passenger of carnival cruise were held at a gun point. Norwegian cruise line crew member was shot and killed during a robbery.

How to stay safe in Roatan: Never travel alone, avoid lonely places including beaches. Book your tours directly through your cruise lines. Keep travel plans private. Stay away from coxen hole after dark. Don’t display your valuable, jewellery and cash.

MINDANAO PHILIPPINES: The SULU SEA is quickly becoming notorious. Terrorist and criminal organisation has begun to target tourist foreigners by kidnapping. There the state departments has warned to avoid non-essential travel to the Sulu Archipelago and especially to the island of MINDANAO, which draws tourist who are interested in seeing lush scenery, stunning waterfalls and emerald forests. Ports like Zamboanga and Dipolog also attract ISIS and related insurgent groups who kidnap foreigners and civilians for ransom.

How to stay safe in MINDANAO: Avoid going in the small boats through this area. Travel in groups with reputed tour companies. Plan shore excursion and keep an eye all the time.

ADEN, YEMEN: the Gulf of Aden has floated cruises operated by COSTA and Silversea. It is one of the worst places for piracy. The waters off the coast of Somalia are dangerous enough that cruise ships turn off their GPS broadcast and exterior lights when sailing that area.

MEXICO always tries to ensure that the tourists are safe. Still too there are high crime rates that endanger lives, such as homicides, assaults and robberies.

INDONESIA has ports where piracy activities take place. Jakarta is one of the places that you should be careful of.

TURKEY is one of the unsafe places to take a cruise, because of the terror attack. The companies offering cruise service fear to dock at Turkey port. Many of the ship reroute their ship and go to some other ports. The civilians will make you feel very comfortable and appreciated with their hospitality, even so, with the threat of terror and suicide bombing concerns; it won’t be a great choice.

PORT HARCOURT: This port is located in Nigeria on the African continent. It is a most dangerous port for cruise ships to make a stop at. It is known for kidnapping of foreigners and tourist by the terrorist group BOKO HARAM who has been kidnapping young girls and women.

MARGARITA ISLAND: It is the most dangerous cruise port which is located especially for drugs and human and drug trafficking. Some tourists are also attacked on the cruise that stops at this port. This is all done because of the poor economy in the Venezuela making this port very dangerous for cruise.

The places mentioned above are good destination for holidays, but the crime rates and some diseases outbreaks make this place very unpleasant and unsecure to be at. But if some protection is taken by the government along with the port authorities, then these ports will turn into peaceful places for people to go and have their holidays.

Do You Shop To Travel Or Travel To Shop

duty free shop Zadar Airport
Some traveler gets to know a place through its museums and monuments, others through its scenic landscapes or traditional cuisine. But for shopaholic, who loves to shop there no ways to experience a place by mingling with merchants in a bazaar, going through the handcrafted wares of local artisans or sampling in the first place.

Shopping in a city can be designer at the posh boutique in town. For many travellers shopping isn’t just a thing you do at the hotel gift shop when you’ve forgotten your toothbrush. It’s the entire reason they have got on a plane fun; it’s as great way to collect souvenirs, or to pick up designers items where you can’t get in your hometown. Sometimes you purchase comfortable shoes from a different country, every time you wear it that reminds you of your travels.

From a shopper’s perspective frequent traveling can be crippling. It can get worse in the holiday season where Christmas dominates many people’s calendar. Instead of buying things in the city a better shopping trip can be very useful.

There are two types of shoppers: one is that some people prefer to shop just because they want to travel and visit many places simultaneously and the other one is that he or she prefer to travel only because of shopping. They are not interested in visiting places.

Some cities have better shopping options than others. Tourists are asked to rate on travel experience around the world and share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise lines, spas, airlines and more. But most of them have rated cities for a number of qualities, including shopping. U.S is their favourite place where they’re most excited to crack open their wallet. London and Paris reign as fashion capitals but network beat them both coming in at the best city in the world for shopping.

A mall is something where you can entertain yourself with shopping and also enjoy your whole day by dining, watching a movie or play games.

To find out which cities around the world can give your money worth when it comes to shopping.

In that case we can judge cities like:

How do we get around the city during your shopping? Is there a public transportation, affordability and availability of cabs, transport time?

Can we bargain during the sale season?

Found out the number of available brands, range of shopping categories, quantity of upscale shops, department stores, boutique and vintage retailers and market stalls.

Some of the best destinations for shopping are:


ISTANBUL TURKEY: Shopping in Turkey is great with open air market covered Turkish bazaar and chic boutiques everywhere. Things likes Alabaster stone, Antiques Apparel, brass and copper, carpets, ceramics, jewellery, kilims is a woven mat, leather Apparel, silk, wood inlaid are famous.

SINGAPORE: if you are a shopping lover, you should come to Singapore at least once in your life, it is one of the most vibrant shopping hubs in Asia. Singapore is a fashion paradise for millions of tourist, who come not only for sightseeing, but also to get the most fashionable items. It not only offers branded products but also product which are based on low budget, so shoppers can find desired items that suit their needs, tastes and wallets in fact. These are few shopping places, where one can purchase goods at a reasonable price like MUSTAFA CENTRE, BUGIS STREET, LUCKY PLAZA, FAR EAST PLAZA, CITY PLAZA, ANCHOR POINT CENTRE and much more.

NEW YORK CITY: New York  is one of the most popular cities in the world. It has something to offer for everyone. From famous department stores in Midtown Manhattan to small farmers markets in Brooklynn. This city offers products to fit every lifestyle.

There are still many more places where one can shop.

Shopping actually make you happy. Treating yourself to something nice at the shops apparently has a lasting positive impact on mood.

Hacks of Family Travel

Family Travel
Travelling is all about exploring new dimensions of the world. There are people who long for a reason to travel just to escape from the mundanity of life. Travelling is not only about a ‘your type of life’, it includes a lot of excitement, adventure, anxiety and many more. It is through travelling that you get to know yourself better. You get more acquainted with your likes, dislikes or how much capable you are to surpass your comfort zone. Travelling comes with an added preservative when it’s a family travel. There are many spectrums that you need to focus on when you are travelling especially with your family. Some hacks that can help you to modify travelling with your family are as follows:

  • Planning– Make a proper plan from before. During the family travel, you need to be more cautious in terms of preparation. Plan everything properly and from before. Last minute rush does not make your family happy. 
  • Suitable Location– Choose a proper location which is family friendly, so that they can cherish every bit of the holiday as any loose ends will upset them. Unnecessarily high-altitude places can be a disappointment for your family as anything that brings tenacity is not preferred by our family. 
  • Hotels & Resorts– Try to book a sweet which is much better than availing 2–3 bedrooms. If the entire family is at the same place, then the outing with family will be fulfilling and you can actually spend a quality time with your family which can be the major motif of you travel. 
  •  Adjustment– If you have children then you have to manage your sleep and hanging-out times as per their preference. You have to eat when your child is hungry and sleep when your child is sleepy to make the next day amiable. 
  • Safety– Family Travel involves a lot of care and precautions. So, if there are old people in your family who are travelling with you then make sure that you choose a destination where medical facilities can be immediately made available. 
  • Reservations & Confirmations– It is always advisable that you book hotels and resorts from before because if you fall in this regard then it is undoubtedly a major mishap. 
  • Conveyance Facilities– If you are traveling with you family then make sure that you have booked vehicle to carry you along with your family to different travel destinations of that place. 
  • Tastes & Preferences– You are playing safe, if you have chosen the travel spot as per you family’s tastes and preferences, otherwise the entire stay can become remorseful. 
  • Treats & Surprises– Remember if it is family travel, the holiday though planned by you, it is not precisely about your happiness. You need to make sure that you keep your entire family happy, and this could be done by giving them treats and surprises that they will hold on forever. It is these surprises that will enable them to cherish these memories all throughout.

Budget Travel: How To Visit Napa Valley On A Budget

Napa Valley


Budget travel is a trend now specifically for solo travelers. It is a cheap way to explore a place with limited money and means. There are people who would love to see the world but may not be willing to spend more than a certain amount. Though it sounds like a dream but it can be made into reality by planning a little bit ahead the trip. One can cut down their expenses in different factors where accommodation and food tops the list.


A trip to Napa Valley is expensive but to go there within a budget is difficult but not impossible. The beautiful valley in California is one of the major wine producing region and millions of people visit the place every year due to this attraction. Sprawling acres of vineyards, comfortable climate and verdant hills, Napa Valley has all that needs tourist attraction. Along with wine producing it offers scenic views and spicy delicacies. But accommodation, food wineries can leave a hole on your wallet. The high prices however are a proof for the fact that people are willing to spend money to enjoy. But if you need to cut down your expenses, pre-planning and a few compromises and you will make your budget travel to Napa Valley a success.

There are certain aspects of the trip that one needs to keep in mind before visiting the place, one where expenses can be cut down. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Visiting the Valley in winter and spring will help in the budget travel as these two seasons are considered off season. It is the cheapest time as the prices of the hotels drops by half making it easily affordable. Visiting in off season one may miss the grapes and making of wines but will find flowers forming a blanket over the hills giving a breath-taking view. At this time, the crowd is less and therefore more manageable making visit to the wineries more peaceful and exciting. 
  • To cut down the accommodation costs, try to stay further south in downtown Napa where you can get cheap and reasonable hotels to stay. If you are a solo traveller, camping is also an option but that would mean carrying all the equipment. Another way to avoid pricey hotels is to use Couch service which is a website connecting locals with travellers who need a shelter. 
  • Since Napa offers a lot of rich and tasty foods along with wine, one must avoid going to restaurants as they may add up really quick and you may miss your budget. Therefore, it is advisable to stick to food markets where there plenty and of course sandwich counters. 
  • Transportation can be of little problem if you don't have hired cars which is also costly. Renting a bike to explore the place is definitely an option other than shared cab rides or services. There are plenty of door to door cab services offered in the Valley. 
  • One of the major attractions is visiting the wineries and tasting wines. You may be charged accordingly or you can opt for tasting cards. Some wineries may give you free tasting if you buy a bottle or two from them.
Napa Valley is an incredible place with its own history and scenic beauty more than wineries and food. It can be a great experience but it is advisable not to visit the place alone as the costs cannot be split which is important in a budget travel.

Five Wonderful Days in Barcelona!


If you’re looking for a destination that has it all, Barcelona is the place for you. Not only does it have a great seaside right at the edge of the city (with metro stops right in front of it too), but with the delicious food, culture, history, and city in itself, Barcelona is a holiday that will leave you feeling relaxed and enriched. If you’re set on going but are still unsure on where to go, when, or how, here is an exemplary 5-day travelling plan that I would personally use, and take advantage of. Have fun andadios!

Day 1

With lots of sightseeing to be done in Barcelona, a smart way of coordinating your trip is to organize the first day by dedicating it to visiting and exploring the city’s historic background. Barcelona can vouch for many different landmarks, and also shows you how important architecture can be! Using a site like to snap up some skip the line tickets for possibly the most famous landmark in Barcelona- the Sagrada Familia,will allow you toavoid spending a large chunk of your holiday time in line. Also, keep in mind that the weather is unpredictable, so a small backpack with all the necessities is the way to go. Perhaps on day one you should focus more on visiting the sites and less finding places to eat- so why not visit a local supermarket to buy some food you can eat as you go and keep in your knapsack. After the Sagrada Familia there are many sites you can squeeze into your first day- Casa Batllò (another of Gaudi’s masterpieces) is just one of them!

Day 2 

An important reminder for your second day plan- which in reality will be present throughout your whole trip- is food, food, and food. As Barcelona is in Spain, there are a few unspoken rules that relate to the meals you should know; rules that mainly involve the times one usually eats at. In fact, to make things easier just add about 2 hours to the normal time you would have lunch or dinner at back home, and you’ll be dining with the locals during your Barcelona residency. Also, don’t forget that Thursday is paella day, so you should definitely take advantage of the dish’s notoriety and taste the delicious rice on that day! Barcelona is the capital city of Catalonia, meaning you will find specific Catalan dishes here that you might not find in other areas of Spain. Be sure to try some of the traditional tapas, and of course Crema Catalan for dessert! After a long day on your feet visiting historical sites on your first day, day two might be the right time to sit on a café and people watch with some delicious local dishes to fill you up.

Day 3

With the seaside right there, and only a few public transport stops away, it would be a shame if you didn’t at least take a stroll near the water. With the promenade being so beautiful, and adorned by little cafès, restaurants, and clubs, you will definitely find that place you’ll talk about non-stop when you’re back home. As a day three plan, letting yourself relax at the beach is a smart way of catching your breath after all the different adventures you’ve been having so far. Also, keep in mind that the beach is one of the main party centrals in Barcelona, and that there are clubs right on the beach for you to dance at! If you go during peak times the beach will be very busy- isolated paradise it is not… however, getting some sea air, and dipping your toes in the waves will give you a really nice experience away from the hustle and bustle of the small city streets. There are a number of beaches to choose from depending on how far you want to travel from the city centre.

Day 4

One of the most fun and entertaining activities for you on the fourth day, is taking a stroll down the Ramblas! LaRambla is one of the most central streets in the Spanish city, where you will find many shops, cafés, and lots of living statues! Lined by trees and benches, the Rambla is a stroll that will lead you from Plaça de Catalunya all the way to the Christopher Columbus Monument found in Barcelona’s port. You may find the crowds a little overwhelming, so I would advice walking through the street and stopping to take a look at the different items on offer there, but finding a slightly more secluded spot to eat or do your main souvenir shopping.

Day 5

If you’re into football- or have a travelling companion that is- visiting FC Barcelona’s stadium is a definite must. Camp Nou, meaning “New Camp” was finished in 1957, and can hold up to more than 90,000 people. With a bus that will take you there from the city centre, or even by train, the stadium is not far from the city and is definitely worth a visit if you want to see something a little more modern, which holds great importance to the locals of Barcelona.

In Barcelona you can find things to do for a much longer trip, but you can also enjoy a long weekend, it just takes a bit of preplanning, there is so much to see do and eat you can never be bored there and may find yourself checking the prices of flights for a return trip sooner than you expected!
