Following on from our post on funny hotel names, we’ve been looking for some amusing signs that are found in hotels. Whether you’ve taken a suite at New Hangover Hotel,
Why do we love rollercoasters? They scare us out of our wits, they threaten to kill us, and they even make some of us lose control of our bodily functions. But it’s the rush we crave. The building anticipation; the doubts, the regrets, and then the drop.
The twists, the falls, the loops, the turns. The screams and the thrills. Round the next corner we might all die but right at this moment we feel a million times more alive than we did ten seconds ago.
And as we come to a standstill we’re triumphant to have made it through unscathed. We’re the Chuck Norris of the theme park world; we looked death in the face and had a decent chortle. Now we feel hungry and want a hamburger.
Here’s a rundown of some of the world’s most impressive rollercoasters. Be warned: some of these videos are pretty realistic.
Some people like to patronise chain hotels because they offer a standard level of accommodation. It can be reassuring to know what level of service and facilities to expect when you stay in a Hilton or a Holiday Inn. Conversely, if you stray off the beaten path you’re forfeiting the kind of reassurance that comes with brand standards.
However, sometimes taking a risk can pay dividends. Take the following hotels, for example; if names are anything to go by, what kind of fun extras might they offer?
Would you like to become a packing pro? Can’t take all your clothes with you on holiday? Need to know how to arrange your stuff so that everything fits into your suitcase? No worries; Easytobook.com comes to the rescue and reveals all the secrets of the perfect suitcase!
First of all, you have to ask yourself the right questions: Where am I going? For how long? What will the weather be like? Which suitcases do I have to choose? etc…
We advise you to start preparing your suitcase a few days before your departure. Don’t leave it until the last minute, for the simple reason that there is every chance you’ll forget something or you’ll want the only pair of jeans that is still in the dirty washing basket.
Here are some tips that we might not initially consider, but can be very helpful when packing.
Everybody who travels uses luggage. Suitcases are often the weapon of choice to transport a person’s belongings. Whilst a suitcase is nothing more than a large case in different sizes which you have to carry or roll from point A to B, there could be situations where you wished your suitcase could do something more. That’s exactly what some designers or manufacturers thought, and they came up with all kinds of different uses and designs for suitcases.
Suitcases to sit on
I’ll start with designs for one of the most annoying things that can happen while traveling. Yes…waiting… If you have bad luck your feet are killing you and there is no chair around. In that case, these suitcases to sit on can help you out.
This first bag has a steel frame on which you attach the specially designed bag. The Steel frame incorporates a foldout chair which can hold a person up to 125kg. The bag can be detached from the frame in the event that it is not needed. Here you can find many more designs.
One great thing about working with an international group of colleagues is the opportunity to learn more about other cultures. In our office it’s common to hear cries of, ‘ciao, ragazzi’ and ‘uitbuiken!’ in between discussions over the correct way to serve coffee or how much money to put in the birthday kitty.
Recently we all witnessed the curious antics of the Dutch on Queen’s Day – and yes, we might have joined in a little bit – and as we look forward to the summer months, we’ll all have a chance to discover some fascinating festivals held around the world, courtesy of our mirthful colleagues.
Our first stop is almost next door. France’s Lorraine Mondial Air Balloon event originated as a show and competition to promote tourism in the local area. A bi-annual occasion held since 1989, this event in July sees the congregation of hundreds of balloons from many different countries in the Lorraine Regional Nature Park. The thousands of spectators and hundreds of volunteer assistants witness a breathtaking display of shapes and colours filling the sky.
There are almost 200 different countries in the world and all of them have their own language, their own territory and their own culinary culture. The food and its variety is also one of the most important parts of travelling.
Travel means discovery, and if you visit a country without trying its typical food, well, you are not making any effort to discover the country you are visiting!
I doubt there is anyone in our office that is more capable of writing a post about urban legends.
I was one of those people that had huge problems going to the toilet alone when I was little because someone had so nicely told me that there was living a monster in my toilet, which would eat me alive if it was hungry. One would hope that I was the only one pranked with this horrible urban legend, unfortunately most of my friends were as well. But that is what Urban Legends are: entertaining and often scary stories with uncertain origin, which people (to some extend) think are true.
However, this article is not about me, but about the most well-know urban legends in large cities around the globe:
New York: New York is home to several urban legends, most known is the one about the alligator in the sewer. It all started with a little boy from New York, who went on vacation to California and took a little alligator back home to have as a pet. When his alligator got to large the boy flushed him down the toilet – several people have stated to have seen an alligator in the New York sewer ever since.
A few weeks ago we asked you on our Facebook page “What is your favorite movie set location?” We were amazed by the amount of responses we got. “Vicky Christina Barcelona”, “Eat, Pray, Love” in Italy and Indonesia, “Harry Potter” in London and many more cool locations, were all mentioned by you and made us all remember why we loved a certain film.
Once the Facebook discussion was over we were still enthusiastic about it and decided to elaborate on the subject a little more. Take a look at what we at EasyToBook.com consider to be the best movie set locations:
When winter arrives and the snow begins to fall is when snowmen are “born” everywhere in the snowfilled cities. This season in Europe, with unbelievable snowfall in December, was great for creation of all kinds of structures made from snow!
But did you know that each year snow sculpture competitions are organized around the world? You can see it with your own eyes in France, the USA, Canada, China, Japan and many other countries.
The competitions are a great opportunity for bringing together a large number of sculptors and visitors of all horizons to delight the young and old thanks to huge with stunning snow sculptures!
