The Sydney Opera House is one of the must-visit sites during any Australia tour packages. The beautiful environs of this fabulous building are truly breathtaking. It is surrounded on three sides by water and by the Royal Botanic Gardens on the fourth side.

A tour of the building lets you explore its theatres, concert hall, cinema, studios and exhibition rooms. You can even make a day of it and enjoy a sumptuous meal at one of the restaurants. While visiting the Sydney Opera House is quite an experience, most tourist guides recommend enjoying the view of this fabulous structure from a harbour cruise or Mrs Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens, which is one of the best places to click photographs of this great monument.

The Importance of the Family Vacation

Each year, a large number of families make the decision to take a summer vacation.  Despite the fact that a large number of individuals do vacation during the summer months, there are even more families that do not.  Which type of family are you?

There are a number of reasons why a particular family may be unable to take a family vacation.  One of the most common reasons involves the cost.  Unfortunately, many individuals mistakenly believe that a vacation has to be an extravagant adventure. It doesn’t matter whether you travel to the closest amusement park, camp overnight at a state park, or travel around the world, each can be considered a summer vacation.

In addition to the cost of a vacation, a large number of families are unable to take a family vacation due to their busy schedules.  Summer vacations are popular because they are often the only time that a family can take a break from their daily activities.  If you are able to set aside time, whether it be three days or three weeks, you are encouraged to schedule a summer vacation with your family.  Doing so has an unlimited number of benefits.

Perhaps, the greatest benefit of scheduling a summer vacation with your family is the amount of time that you will be able to spend together.  In this day in age, many families are rarely able to spend time together.  Long work hours, homework, and busy sports schedules often prevent a family from enjoying dinner or other fun activities together.  In some cases, a summer vacation is the only way that a family can spend uninterrupted time together.

The relaxation that a summer vacation will provide your family with is another benefit of scheduling one.  Today, children must operate and function differently than they had to in the past.  School age children are often bombarded with large amounts of homework, on a daily basis.  This homework, along with active sport schedules and pressure to be the best, can be difficult for children to handle.  A summer vacation may provide them with the rest and relaxation that they need and deserve.
In addition to your children receiving relaxation, it is quite possible that you and your spouse could as well.  It is true that children have a lot of pressure placed on them, but so do parents.  Scheduling a summer vacation with your family will give you the opportunity to forget about work related issues and home cleaning. These are some of the problems and issues that only a summer vacation could cure.

If you are interested in scheduling a summer vacation, you and your family are encouraged to pick a destination together.  Selecting a summer vacation destination as a family will enable everyone to have access to fun filled activities.  In addition to selecting the perfect family vacation, your children may experience a feeling of importance.  This feeling of importance if often generated from having an input on a large decision, such as your next summer vacation destination.

As previously mentioned, a large number of activities can be considered a summer vacation.  If you are interesting in taking a vacation this summer, you and your family should take the time to find the perfect summer vacation destination.  Why would you want to continue to spend your summers around the house, especially when everyone could be enjoying themselves away from home?

Cheap Las Vegas Car Rentals: Driving Towards Savings On The Strip

Cheap Las Vegas car rentalsThere are plenty of easy ways to get around Sin City without a car, what with the town’s over-abundance of Taxis, a monorail that runs up and down Las Vegas Boulevard late into the night, or even Segway tours of The Strip. But if you insist on getting behind the wheel of a car and navigating the always impenetrable mess of stop and start traffic known as The Las Vegas Strip, here are some great tips for saving money on cheap Las Vegas car rentals that will prevent you from going broke in Vegas.

BOOK EARLY: The easiest, best, and most obvious way to save big money on your car rental rates is to reserve your vehicle as far in advance as possible. You book your flights and hotels early when you plan a trip, so why not do the same for your rental car? The closer to your date of arrival that you book your car, the more the rental agency will gouge you. Reserve your vehicle as early as possible.

PACKAGE DEAL! A surefire way to save money is to purchase everything you know you’ll need for your trip in one bundle. Package deals can save you lots of money if you book your hotel room, flight, show tickets, and yes, rental car all at once. Hotels, airlines, and travel sites all offer great package deals that will cost you a lot less than paying for each piece separately, so book your car along with other pieces of your travel itinerary and save some big money.

LET TRAVEL SITES COMPETE FOR YOUR MONEY! You can’t throw a digital rock these days without hitting a travel site that aggregates the best prices on everything you’ll need when traveling, including car rental prices. Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Travel Zoo, Priceline, Hotwire, Kayak… the list goes on and on for sites that are dedicated to offering you the very best travel deal. You can easily browse through as many of the sites that you want until you find the absolute best deal. There’s even a site dedicated specifically to aggregating the best prices in Rental Cars , aptly named RentalsCars.Com… but don’t stick with any even one narrowly focused site when you can take a quick look at the other options for the very best prices.

INCONVENIENCE CAN LEAD TO SAVINGS! As great as it may sound to have a car idling for you when you land in Vegas, you may end up paying dearly for that convenience. Search for mom and pop rental franchises that are located off-site from the airport or The Strip, and you will find some great deals. These less convenient franchises will try harder to get you in the door to win your business than those that are easier to access, so a little extra work getting to them could pay off with great prices.

You can find many more deals and money saving strategies online in the battle to cheap Las Vegas car rentals. But in the end, the best idea might be to ditch the idea of driving within the Vegas city limits altogether. It’s easy to get around town without a car, and more importantly, you won’t have to deal with slow moving traffic caused by drivers too buzzed to be behind the wheel, strobe-light flashing party buses, view-obstructing trucks dragging escort-service billboards, lumbering limos shuttling patrons to strip clubs, a seemingly endless army of overly aggressive cabbies, or pedestrians sporting obnoxiously large frozen Margaritas and crossing the street as they ignore flashing Don’t Walk signs that make The Strip a nightmare for motorists. Why deal with those frustrations when you can zoom around town in a futuristic monorail that avoids the mania-inducing traffic, let one of those cabbies drive over-aggressively for your benefit, or enjoy your own obnoxiously large (yet insanely delicious) frozen margarita yourself as you travel The Strip by foot (or Segway)?

Summer loss, an epidemic, preventable in Houston by tutoring

Summer learning loss is the loss in academic skills and knowledge over the time span of summer vacation. The academic summer is usually about 3-4 months. The loss in learning varies. The lost depends on grade level, subject, and family income. A common finding across numerous studies is that on average, students score lower on standardized tests at the end of the summer than they do at the beginning of summer. The test taken is the same test! Summer loss for all students is estimated to be equal to about 1 month. That means that after a summer, a student has “lost” a month’s worth of information. It gets worse, as mentioned previously the summer loss varies on the subject. For example, after a typical summer a student losses not 1 but 2.6 months worth of mathematics.

Summer learning is bad, but it is worse for those who are underprivileged. Meaning, the very same kids who have to struggle with the achievement gap, malnourishment, lack of resources, etc, have one more problem that they have to face. Low-income students generally lose about 2 months of reading achievement. While middle-income students experience slight gains in reading performances. Scholars have recognized that summer vacation is a time period when students’ rate of academic development declines relative to the school year. All children lose academic skills during the summer months. However, family socioeconomic status (SES) is highly correlated to the level of academic growth or decline in the summer months. That means, the worse you are off in terms of socio-economic means the worse the child’s academic decline will be. Two-thirds of the academic achievement gap found among high school students has been explained through the learning loss that occurs during the summer months of the primary school years.

According to a report published from McKinsey & Company on Society, the achievement cost the United States 1.3 to 2.3 trillion dollars from 2008 to 2009. If we can take the median number from this range, 1.8 trillion dollars, then that means that summer learning loss cost the United States 1.188 trillion dollars from 2008 to 2009. If we assume that the achievement gap has not gotten worse, which it has, then that means the United States lost 4.752 trillion dollars since 2008 due to summer learning loss.

The problem is clear. Summer learning loss happens to your child every summer, and that threatens your child’s academic and professional success. Luckily, summer time can also be a period for your child to get ahead of the curve by enrolling in tutoring. In Houston, you can find a variety of tutoring centers that we will ensure your child’s success. Just make sure that the tutoring center in Houston that you choose provides you with the quality and flexibility needed in order for your child to succeed.

Think While You Drop Your Bundle to Book Hotels for Holiday Tour

With every day life becoming more and more stressful, travel has gained its share of importance. Today, travel is perceived to be an important mode of recreation. Although virtual amenities can fight back against monotony and stress but the age old ritual of packing bags and heading for nature is still quite popular. A prerequisite to these travel programs are the flight bookings and holiday accommodation. Flight bookings are more or less taken care by travel agents/portals, but accommodation is the one which needs your personal care and touch, because it is your official den during the recreational pleasure. It could therefore, be challenging given the time taken and options to choose from.
Here are few top tips for booking Hotel while sketching a holiday plan:

Research rates and availability – It is recommended to perform a through online and offline research to compare the tariff plans and availability of numerous hotels in travel portals before choosing. Researching also encompasses conversation with the travel agents and hotels directly. This will also give one, a fair idea about the lodging and dining offers, facilities and other related information.

Avoid wholesale/pre-set offers – Though it’s a bit tempting but you must ignore such offers to avoid inflexible benefits with a long list of terms and conditions. You may gain some profitable benefits while availing those intimidating offers but you must not forget that such offers usually come with cancellation hassle with no money refund.

Reservation Follow-up – Reservation must be done on advance basics to avoid any sort of complications on the day of visit. If you are thinking to book your hotel on the day of arrival then think twice before implementing that plan, as at pick holiday tenures there are scarcity of rooms as most of the hotels at prime tourist destination is full house. So select a hotel which offers advance booking along with half down payment. But don’t forget to extract online invoice of the pay receipt from the hotel authority, this will act as your symbol of proof.

Networking – No matter how strongly you plan to detach every single tough from the city civilization, but you end up thinking what happening out there. So you need to stay connected at times. Moreover your extended family out there may develop certain emergency and need to contact you in urgent, so in-house Wi-Fi service is must. Most of the hotels now-a-days are coming up with this facility. But some Wi-Fi may be slow while others may not have 24*7coverage. Cross verify this part, reportedly ask and enquire about the Wi-Fi facility available in the hotel from the hotel staffs while booking.

So that’s all folks, with this few things in mind, you are ready to book a perfect hotel room to make your outing even more special and cherish able.

How To Start And Run a Profitable Bouncy Castle (Inflatable Bounce House) Rental Company

How To Start And Run a Profitable Bouncy Castle / Play Inflatable Rental Business.


Renting out bouncy castles and other play inflatables is a great home business to be in either full time or part time, and the profits can be high, as well as the fun element! You own the business and all the equipment, there’s no need to pay any franchising fees or licencing rights. For example, operating just three bouncy castles part-time at weekends, at £55 per day per bouncer will bring in £330 per weekend, or over £1,300 per month. Assuming expenses of around £300 per month, this leaves over £1,000 profit! Not bad for just a few hours work!

Children have birthdays every single day of the year. In the summer and autumn, their parents can hire a bouncy castle for the back garden or yard. In the winter and spring, parents can hire a community hall to hold the party and accommodate the bouncer.

To run a successful bouncy castle rental business, you don’t have to give up your full time job, and also you don’t need any large capital investment. This article will show newcomers how to start and successfully run a bouncy castle/inflatable hire business from home and avoid the mistakes that others have made in the past.

1: Research.

When thinking about starting a bouncy castle hire business, the first thing to do is to look through all your local newspapers, (classified sections), Yellow Pages, and online.  See if there is anyone else in your town advertising a bouncy castle hire business.  If you do spot a regular advertiser, don’t be put off – there’s still room for you.  In most towns the demand for bouncy castles far exceeds the supply of them especially in the summer months.  You will have a very clear idea of the competition in your area.  In a busy area, rival companies will very often pass over enquiries and even bookings  to other companies when they are too busy to fulfill the booking themselves.  If you are very fortunate, there may be no rivals operating in your area.

2:  Equipment needed.

Below is a list of equipment which you will need to start a bouncy castle hire business:

a)  Bouncy Castle, rain-cover,  electric blower,  and anchor stakes.

b)  Ground sheet to protect underside of bouncer.

c)  Electrical extension cable  (25 – 30 meters long).

d)  RCD circuit breaker. (safety cut-out device).

e)  Safety mat to put at front of the castle.

f)  A sat nav or local street map of your town and its surrounding area.

g)  Large A4 size desk diary for taking bookings (1 Page to a day).

h)  Ledger book for recording takings and expenses etc.

i)  Public Liability Insurance cover. We strongly recommend one million pounds as the absolute minimum.

j) Safety instruction sheet and customer disclaimer form.

k) A sack trolley.

From experience, we highly recommend that your first bouncy castle is 12 foot by 12 foot.  (3.6m x 3.6m) with a 3 or 4 foot (Approx. 1 metre) safety step at the front.  This size is by far the most popular with customers and is easily handled and stored, and when inflated will fit in most back gardens and community halls.

There are many excellent companies selling bouncy castles.  Most new bouncy castles come with a one year guarantee, while some manufacturers offer a two year guarantee.   Make sure that a minor repair kit is included in the price of your bouncer.

If buying new, make sure that the inflatable has a certificate to say that it has been manufactured to the recognised Standard which as at January 2010 is: BS EN 14960:2006  (UK and Europe).

Be very careful when buying used play inflatables as the stitching on the seams does wear over time, and can cause bed failure.  Take an experienced person with you, who will know what to look out for.

3:  Where to get customers.

Fortunately, children are born every single day of the year, so there is a virtually endless supply of prospective customers.  Most parents prefer to use their own back gardens, or the local community hall to hold the party.   As well as private childrens’ parties, there are several other places where you can hire out your bouncer e.g.  playgroups, nurseries, pubs, hotels, after-school clubs,  shopping malls, school fetes,  car boot fairs,  shows and galas,  charity events, football clubs, barbeques, beach parties, christening parties, wedding receptions, tennis clubs,  cub and scout groups, brownie and guide groups,  business promotions, open days etc.

4:  How to get bookings.

In order to get your first hires, I recommend that you do the following: Firstly, tell everyone that you know who have young children, that you have a bouncy castle for hire.  Offer to let them rent it at a discount, if they are prepared to tell all their friends and relatives.

Secondly, you need to place an advert in your local newspaper, and in your local yellow pages directory.  This advertising will attract enquiries, and providing your telephone manner is polite and helpful you will get bookings virtually automatically.

You should also consider registering for free with Google Maps, so that your potential customers can easily find you when they type out the name of your town and bouncy castle hire in the Google search engine. (It is a very good idea to have a website, but it is not essential to have one, in order to have your company listed in Google Maps for free.

Initial enquiries will take several forms, most callers want to initially know the cost of hiring a bouncy castle, what sizes are available?  how many children can use it at the same time? Up to what age group can use it?  When a customer calls, the first question you should always ask is what date is the party on?  Secondly, ask what age the children will be?  Armed with this information, you can suggest a size of bouncy castle, 90% of the time it will be a 12ft x 12ft bouncer.  If the children are very young  i.e. aged 1 – 4,  it may be better to suggest a smaller bouncer, or even a bouncy ballpond  (a small semi-enclosed bouncy castle filled with multi-coloured plastic balls).

Also, tell the customer that you can deliver the castle, set it all up, and collect it at the end of the party.  Tell the customer,  that you will ring them a couple of days before to confirm the delivery time etc.  This approach helps to develop trust with the customer, which should bring them back next time.

Always tell the customer that there is a rain-cover included in the price.

5:  Promotional Items and referrals.

It is very important to take advantage of your first bouncy castle bookings.  For example – a parent has just rented your bouncy castle for their son’s birthday party.  You’ve just taken fifty five pounds or so.  But it doesn’t end there. At this party, there will be parents of other children, and these children will have birthday parties as well, so you need to promote your company as much as possible.  The best way of doing this is to hand out A5 size leaflets. It is also a good idea to get some business cards printed, and given out.

Always remember, customer satisfaction is the number one priority.  You really want their party to be a success, and their children to have a really enjoyable time. That way, the parents are more likely to recommend you to their friends, and hire from you again and again.

6: Safety

Obviously with children, safety is absolutely paramount. We strongly recommend that you give your customers a safety instruction sheet.  We have produced some templates for you.  You can find a copy of this on the BIHA homepage or visit:  Also, you should familiarize yourself with the legal requirements and codes of practice which apply to the operation of bouncy castles. ( See: ).

7:  Basic Book-keeping.

It is very important to keep track of all the money you receive. Also, of course, your expenses regarding advertising, printing, fuel, telephone calls, etc.

8: Expanding your business.

After you have your first few hires under your belt, you will probably start to think of other types of inflatables that you can invest in such as inflatable slides and bouncy ballponds.  Don’t forget that the corporate market can be very lucrative (E.g. local councils and big companies in your town).

Travel Las Vegas On A Budget. Part 1

Surprisingly, summer isn’t that expensive a time to go there. June-August months it’s very hot, it’s a desert after all. Everyone from all over the United States and abroad travel to this great city, which i truly believe everyone has to experience at least once.

Caesars Palace Hotel, The Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas Boulevard as far as old downtown Las Vegas / Freemont Street experience, all iconic must see places when you head to Las Vegas Nevada.

Is it expensive? Well for those travelling on a budget, good news, it isn’t anywhere near as expensive as i first thought.


Shop around online for starters. Going through the hotel direct isn’t necessarily a good thing at all. In fact, i found they are usually more expensive, unless you’re a Las Vegas high roller gambler , then sure, they’ll comp you. I’m guessing you were better off not gambling in the first place, it works out cheaper!

Look at websites like , awesome for comparing 1000’s and 10000’s of hotels and sites , giving you the best deals on in the marketplace. It’s tricky as prices change frequently. I find for June-August , the best time to book is around January-March. Sometimes you’ll get a great rate 6 months out, however, usually the three months leading up to your Las Vegas vacation, you’ll find the best rates. Significant savings on last minute or way too long before you’re due to travel. I keep looking at sites like, until i get a feel for the market. Typically a 7 day hotel stay should cost you anything from $350 to $1000, depending on location and star rating. Most will add a resort fee of $18-28 per night, payable on arrival. Keep that in mind when booking. Click on the hotel you’re interested in and read the fine print at check out stage, usually they mention the resort fee rate. You’ll get internet and gym / pool access included in the resort fee in most instances.

Hotels like Treasure Island, Harrahs and The Mirage are some of the best located hotels in Las Vegas and they really cater for the budget conscious traveler! and other similar travel sites will also give you a huge range of discounted budget hotels & flights. It pays to  book in advance, finding the sweet spot on price. You’ll work out what’s cheap after monitoring it for a few weeks. Sounds time consuming, it’s not. In the long run you’ll save heaps. These days i can book a hotel or flight without having to wait months or weeks i advance, because i have a feel for the travel market there now and know a great deal as soon as i see it. I’d bookmark the site and just keep checking until you’re happy with the price. If you have a budget in mind already and find what seems to be a good price in your budget. book it, because they can go up too!

So in concluding for now, when headed to Las Vegas Nevada for the dream vacation, you can do it on a budget and it’s not as expensive as you think.

A lot more to talk about next time, where i’ll go into Las Vegas Travel on a budget in greater detail.

You’ll see me at the tables at T.I (Treasure Island Casino poker room) usually gagging with the locals and friendly staff! I’m the Aussie, you can’t miss my voice.

5 Discount Travel Secrets Orbitz, Travelocity, and Expedia Don’t Want You to Know

Don’t make any travel plans until you read this!

Especially when we’re experiencing one of the worst global recessions that we’ve seen in decades, every dollar counts. And because travel is so expensive, many of us turn to well-known discount travel Web sites like Orbitz, Travelocity and Expedia.

When you book on these sites you think you’re getting the lowest prices available, right?


Why You Might Not Get the Best Deal When Booking Your Trip with Most Discount Travel Websites

In reality, you may actually be getting higher priced offers from airlines and hotels that are affiliated with the discount travel website you use to book your trip. Additionally, you’re doing all the work to research flights and hotels, yet the travel sites are still earning their full agency commissions.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Here Are 5 Travel Secrets Orbitz, Travelocity & Expedia Don’t Want You to Know

1. They charge service fees on every booking. Sometimes that fee is disclosed in the “final price” listed online. Sometimes it’s buried in the Terms & Conditions. Need to change your plans? Be prepared to pay service fees of up to $30 on every phone call for a change or re-issue. This does NOT count the $75 – $150 airline penalty. These travel websites actually hope for bad weather, because bad weather means altered plans, which means extra revenue for them.

2. The rate you see may not be the lowest rate available. That’s because large travel websites deal in bulk volume. As a result they concentrate on “national” and “public” rates. They don’t publish “private” fares, consolidator fares, or below-market fares because it’s not in their interest to do so. You can only get those fares from an experienced travel professional, who knows the system and where to find them.

3. Their definition of lowest price may not match yours. Have you ever entered the exact same search on 3 different travel websites and gotten wide-ranging results? That’s because travel websites have special arrangements with certain “partners” and may give these partners preferential treatment or placement bias. That’s how they make money. Consumers, however, are catching on. According to Travel Weekly, bookings on the “Big 3” have fallen over 10% this year. People are turning to airline and hotel websites directly because that’s where they’re finding the lowest fares.
4. A confused customer is their best customer. In the last 12 months we’ve seen a spate of new surcharges assessed by airlines to offset rising costs—from $5 for some aisle seats to $15 for the first piece of checked luggage. Unfortunately, these costs are not reflected in the search results of most airfare comparison sites. Consumers are left to do the research and the math on their own. As a result, they’re confused. What looks to be the lowest price may not actually be the lowest “total” price when all applicable fees are factored in.

5. Once you hit that SEND button, you’re on your own. What happens when you book online and your flight is delayed or cancelled, or if you miss a connection? Ever tried to get a human being on the phone? You may be on hold for a long, long time. Or when you do finally get someone on the line, you find out he’s in Bangalore (and English isn’t his first language). Meanwhile, the last seat on the last flight out has just taken off. Travel has become more unpredictable than ever. Sadly, it’s not a question of if something will go wrong, but when. And when it does, do you want your fate to rest in the hands of the guy whose job it is to get you off the phone as fast as possible?

This article may seem harsh. But Travelocity, Orbitz and Expedia are keeping these secrets from you. And, you have to know these dirty little travel secrets if you want to hold onto more of your cash.

Online Hotel Booking: Key Disadvantages

Online hotel booking is very popular among tourists and travelers. Besides its advantages, there are disadvantages too. Some of the key disadvantages of online hotel booking are:

1.    Fake offers and services: All hotel websites boast of offering modern well equipped rooms with user friendly staff and unmatched services. The photos of hotel and its rooms pasted on the websites are most of the time fake or taken when hotel was in good condition. But when you will reach your booked hotel then there are chances that many unpleasant surprises must be waiting for you. May be you will find poor maintained hotel, pathetic room conditions, lack of hot/cold water, lack of basic facilities etc. At such point of time you will not be able to change the hotel because you have already paid for it.

2.    Hidden costs: Most of the online hotel websites advertise for low cost deal for attracting you to their hotels. They paste various online advertisements regarding best offers, discounts and packages. But when you will reach your hotel then there are chances that many surcharges and taxes must be waiting for you. Such instances are very common and the only solution is to book hotels online through use of popular, reliable and authentic websites.

3.    Lack of live online customer service: There are very few websites which offer live online customer service. Most of the websites don’t have any live online customer service. You can’t directly ask your questions related to actual condition of hotel rooms, hidden charges or any other hotel services.

4.    Special service request: You can’t request special services at the time of online reservation. May be you will need a thing which you can’t carry yourself to the booked hotel. For example may be you will need wheel chair for your aged family member.

5.    Small budget hotels having no online presence: There are many small budget hotels which are very cheap and really good but don’t have online presence. So you can’t book such small budget hotels online.

6.    Transaction fraud: There are many scams or cases where fake hotel booking websites have deducted money from credit cards of the customers without giving reservation. Also there are chances of leakage of your credit card details to third party which can do fraud with your credit card. Many times you pay for online hotel booking but erroneously still get no reservation status. Online hotel booking through reliable authentic websites is the best option to avoid such fraud and errors.

Looking for learning opportunities over the summer?

Summer Learning Opportunities

These resources can be quite helpful, but parents can often find things to do with kids that are learning opportunities that are presented by their children or the world around them.

Working at home during my son’s summer vacation answers a question I’ve had almost since I started using the Internet: What if there had been the internet when I was a kid? I would have googled things I heard from TV, and then bombarded my dad with questions about what I read on Wikipedia when he got home from work. Maybe not, though. My parents probably would have used the Internet to find parenting tips and summer activities. They may have even stumbled upon parenting classes.

We enrolled the boy in summer school, but he still has much time on his hands. His mother found math and reading summer activities for him to do every day. He reads above grade level, but could use work on reading comprehension. He does math at grade level, so our goal is to prevent summer slide.

I found many things to do with kids by searching the internet, but I think good parenting means looking for teaching and learning opportunities. We enrolled in the wellness center of a local retirement community after he attended a classmate’s birthday party at the swimming pool there. It gets us out of the house; it’s a fun way to get some exercise; it gives us a chance to practice social skills, and it gives us some practice dealing with real-world problems.

If we want to go swimming, we must check the wellness center schedule to learn when they do not have water aerobics classes for the residents. If we have an appointment, we need to figure out what time we need to leave home and what time we need to get out of the pool so that we have enough time to change clothes and get to our appointment on time.

Summer vacation as a good opportunity to learn life skills, so we’re learning to wash the dishes. The goal is not simply to learn how to wash dishes but to learn about such things as responsibility and attention to detail. We had fun learning how to make a video when the street sweeper went by our house. My son is my teacher as much as I am his teacher. His questions force me to think more than questions from adults do.

Summer Vacation In Srinagar

Srinagar, the summer seat of the government of the state of Jammu and Kashmir has long been one of India’s most popular tourist destinations. In part, this has had to do with the multi-layered character of the city and its several attractions. And in part, this is because Srinagar serves as the base for the numerous places of interest and immense natural beauty that lie within Kashmir – and for most places, this remains the access point. Up to India’s Independence in 1947, only the cream of the country traveled and holidayed in Kashmir. Then, within a few short years, there was a boom in tourism and this soon became the backbone of Srinagar’s economy and thousands of visitors thronged to the valley of which the Mughal Emperor, Jehangir is said to have remarked in the seventeenth century, “Agar Firdaus bar rue zameen ast, Hamin ast-o, hamin ast-o, hamin ast” – If there is a Paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here

Getting Around

Taxis, auto-rickshaws and buses are available for local transport. Like many old cities, the winding lanes and timber and brick houses of the heart of Srinagar can best be seen on foot. For both taxis and auto-rickshaws bargaining the fare is quite the norm. In this, try and get a benchmark rate for whatever trip you are taking from your hotel or a local person.

Tourist Traps in the City

In everyday dealing, the biggest hurdle is the amount of haggling that is often required. This could vary from auto-rickshaws or buying souvenirs or settling the price of a non-standard hotel room or a houseboat. But normally, it is all done very pleasantly. Srinagar has been in the center of militant activity for over two decades now, but things are much quieter and the place is considered quite safe – but basic precautions must be taken. There is a large presence of the army and para-military forces; occasional checks and road blocks do occur.

 Local Custom

Dress very conservatively in public – even in your hotel dress conservatively in public areas. Follow any requirements in terms of clothing etc while visiting a religious place.


The sheer range of goods and souvenirs available in Srinagar often makes just shopping worth the trip. One of the popular (if relatively expensive buys) is cashmere – pashmina – shawls. Some mixes are also available – like pashmina and silk, or pashmina and wool and pashmina and polyester, but are not quite the real thing. Hand-woven ones, compared to machine-made ones command a premium and normally have some irregularity in the weave. The Kashmir Shawl Emporium and the government run emporium are good places for these. Quality carpets in both wool and silk are another good buy. Cheaper scatter rugs, ‘namdahs’ have a coarser base and are covered with bright embroidery. Papier mache, jewelery, leather, local tweeds, wood carving (mostly in walnut), wicker products, saffron, dry-fruits are some of the other things that can be bought. The iconic images of the leaf of the chinar tree (platanus orientalis) and the paisley (which many believe to have had its origins in Kashmir) will be found numerous handicrafts.


STD booths are located all over the city. Internet cafes are also available. BSNL broadband is the primary service provider; you can browse the internet, send mails or upload photographs; you may be asked to show some identification document like a passport or driving license. All major GSM providers are there in Jammu – Idea, Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone and Idea among others; but only post-paid connections function throughout the state of Jammu and Kashmir – though pre-paid ones may soon be allowed.

Mobile phones with connections from outside the state do not function in Srinagar.

The beach at Dona Paula is perfect for the more adventurous travellers and water sport enthusiasts.


Rajasthan is a dry state in western India. This state is large and is most popular for the Thar Desert located here. Rajasthan is also known for the many historic forts and palaces built by the Rajput kings. Many of them have been converted into resorts and luxury hotels. These palaces have intricate carvings on the walls and doors, which still do not fail to mesmerise tourists who visit them mainly after the summers.


One of the most beautiful places on earth is Kashmir and so it is also known as the “heaven on earth”. There are a number of places in Kashmir that a tourist must visit.

Delhi is the capital of India and is most popular for the historical monuments such as the Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Safdarjung tomb and India Gate. Agra is only a few hours from Delhi. The very famous Taj Mahal present here attracts hoards of domestic and international tourists every year.

The 10 most overrated vacation spots in the whole world

So you’re going on summer vacation. That’s your first mistake. Why summer? Sure, our grandparents and parents took their vacations between June and September, but they had good reason. In their day, the summer heat brought urban life to a standstill. People who could afford it headed for the mountains and the seashore; resorts were crammed, beaches mobbed. And every summer you’ll still find them that way.

But think about it: Eighty-three years have passed since Willis Carrier invented the air conditioner. That doesn’t mean that summers are any less hot and humid, but at least they’re bearable. If you work in an air-conditioned building and sleep in an air-conditioned bedroom, why join the summer-vacation crush? Why not save up your vacation money for some other season, when resorts are less hectic, Sunbelt beaches less crowded and prices more reasonable?

All right, it’s because you’re a creature of habit. You’re accustomed to summer vacations and can’t change. Have it your own way. But if you’re determined to spend your travel money between now and September – and your vacation plans aren’t yet set in concrete – a few words of advice are in order on where not to go.

I’m not talking about the vacation spots you’ve already been warned against – spots like Miami Beach and Atlantic City. I mean highly touted places where you’ll spend an arm and a leg and return home asking your spouse, “Whose idea was that, anyway?” Here they are, then, in alphabetical order – the places cited in a survey of the well-traveled as the 10 most overrated vacation spots in the world:


Like Carmen Miranda and the vision of romantic Latin America she sold in the 1940s, this resort is strictly out of the past. It’s also garish, overcrowded, overpriced and not especially hospitable to tourists from the United States.

Acapulco horror stories about tourist run-ins with the local constabulary and greedy merchants are a peso a dozen. The most frequently told stories involve U.S. tourists held by police because they were passengers in taxicabs involved in accidents.

Under Mexican law, a passenger has to have insurance in the event of an accident or spend a few hours at police headquarters untangling matters. If, however, you don’t mind taking out special insurance, there are other spots in Mexico – Cancun, for example – that might satisfy your craving for sunshine and palm trees.


The dullest, most unkempt major city in Western Europe. You like classic architecture and museums? You’ll find them here, but only after slogging through clutter and traveling along canals that haven’t been cleaned since the German occupation.

A recent visitor to this graffiti-ridden tourist trap was greeted on his cab ride into town by “Free Bobby Seale” signs left over from the ’60s. If you have an urge to visit Holland, make it Rotterdam or the Hague.


The Tijuana of the Orient, this is the “exotic” east at its raunchiest. It’s a great place for males who like a ratio of three hookers to every tourist. A recent American visitor reports that he was propositioned no fewer than five times on a three-block walk from a restaurant to his hotel. Not bad for an 85-year-old gent.


Speaking of leis, the 50th state is still a great vacation spot – but not this capital city, which has been afflicted with terminal tourism. L.A.’s urban sprawl has spanned the waters. It won’t be long before they start making hula skirts out of tinsel. The way one long-time traveler puts it, Honolulu is now “Sunset Boulevard with a beach” or “M Street on a Saturday night.” Try one of the other islands of Hawaii for inviting beaches and clear blue sky – Maui, for example.


But if what you’re looking for is inviting beaches, clear blue sky, ice-cold ocean, and mosquitoes as large, loud and numerous as the Stukas over London in 1940,try Maine. A recent traveler to Monhegan Island says she now defines “rustic” as dirty, dark and damp.

And if you’re immune to mosquitoes, there are always the giant black flies to bug you. They’ve actually been known to shut down villages when they appear like an aerial plague in a Hitchcock film. Not that Maine is the worst vacation bargain in New England. For a really overrated New England resort, there’s always:


The mid-life preppy summer capital of the world, this is a fine place to spend a vacation if you don’t mind interminable waits for the ferry, mob scenes and out-of-line prices – not to mention local hostility. As far as the permanent residents are concerned, you’re as much a foreigner here as you are in Acapulco. Let the social regulars from Georgetown and Elaine’s have it. They’ve learned the language and the foreign exchange rates.


If you’re under some Yankee delusion that this is a Gulf Coast town with beaches, re-check your geography. Lake Pontchartrain was a fine place for swimming and boating 40 years ago, but it’s long since been put off-limits by pollution. That leaves the city itself, and people who knowingly travel to New Orleans in the summer would better spend their money on long-term therapy.

The humidity in New Orleans on a summer day will leave you limp. The food is as good as you’ve heard, but on a 92-degree day, who has an appetite? If you haven’t been there, save your taste for Creole and Cajun cooking for spring or fall. But forget the overrated Mardi Gras season, a once-great tradition turned into another Fort Lauderdale orgy for the Doonesbury generation.


“This is the kind of gambling resort,” says one observer, “where the people go at it with a desperate look in their eyes, as if they’re saying, `If I lose, how am I going to get home?’ ” In other words, Atlantic City South. If you crave gambling and sunshine, Las Vegas – tasteless neon and all – would be a better summer choice.

For one thing, there’s nothing going on at Paradise Island besides gambling: no shows, food ranging from mediocre to poor, and crummy service. The best that can be said for this tourist trap is that you lose your money there on your own terms, which is more than can be said for:


I know, Paris has always been regarded as the European capital that treats U.S. tourists most shabbily. But in recent years Rome has come on strong, and it’s now a place where Americans are regarded by the native population as so many mullets ready to be reeled in and de-boned.

And when the law-abiding natives aren’t taking you, there’s always the other kind to watch out for. Street crime in Rome has been institutionalized, with tourists a prime target for looters on bikes and even in limousines. If you travel in Rome in the summer, chances are you won’t be wearing mink. But our advice is clear. When in Rome, do as the smart Romans would: Leave your valuables (this includes your Timex watch and any currency above $5) in your hotel’s safe.


Anywhere, any year. There isn’t any World Fair to visit this summer, but there are more being planned, so take this as fair forewarning: There hasn’t been a good World’s Fair since the New York model in 1939. The ’64 New York fair wasn’t bad, but the truth is that the international exposition is a relic of the past.

In the old days, before the airplane and mass travel, such events had a gee-whiz impact. But in an age when we’ve seen men, women and U.S. senators in space, the wonders-of-technology theme of the World’s Fairs has lost its punch. If you’re looking for real wonders of technology, go to Epcot in Florida.


So much for the 20 most overrated vacation spots. No warning guide to summer travelers would be complete, however, without some comment about airports.

Even if you’ve picked the right vacation spot, getting there can be miserable if you have to connect with a flight at the wrong air terminal. The airport horror story is a staple of post-summer office conversation, but by consensus the following stand out as the worst of domestic airports – that is, those most likely to ruin the first day of your vacation: Atlanta’s Hartsfield, Chicago’s O’Hare, Denver’s Stapleton, and New York’s JFK.

How to find Best Travel Site?

The advice about a travel deals discount can be overwhelming to anyone looking for a vacation site. The World Wide Web is especially awash with advice on the best destinations to travel to. Whether such destinations live up to the picture created is anyone’s guess. But we cannot blame the content creators for such websites now, can we? The sole purpose of websites for  Best Travel Deals  is to specifically make you want to visit the listed destinations. The actual decision is therefore left to the vacationer. It is his prerogative to research about a destination as much as he can in order to ensure that the decisions he makes are based on reality rather the hype created by the websites.

The first step to choosing an ideal travel website is going by referrals. Ask your friends and family members about places they have visited before and depending on what you hear, determine whether you want to make such a place your vacation destination. Another pointer that will ensure that you make a perfect travel website selection is choosing a different site from places you have visited previously. Visit Hawaii or any other tropic vacation destinations if you are in places where weather patterns are extreme. If you have always desired to see wildlife, make sure to consider wildlife rich destinations such as Africa.

When choosing a travel vacation package , make sure to list what you would like to see most on a piece of paper. Based on the costs needed for the different destinations and other considerations, identify thetravel vacation deals that looks most viable to you. After this, then you can research about the specific location from different sites. This will give you a rough idea of what to expect.

A travel vacation site should also be picked depending on whether you are traveling alone or not. When traveling as a group, one has to put the likes and dislikes of other members of the vacationing group in to consideration. Remember that everyone wants to have fun and hence you cannot choose an extreme sport vacation if some of the group members will not enjoy the same.

Other things to consider when choosing a travel vacation site include the weather, safety, learning experiences available and adventure. Throughout the world, there are numerous travel destinations where one can find such. Right from the sun, sand, wildlife and beaches in Africa to the sun and sand in the Caribbean Islands, all you need to do is make the perfect choice.
