The people at Diamond Toronto Party Bus came up with such a great idea for those of us who like things to be unique and different. I had been going to a variety of parties for as long as I can remember and they were all the same. Everyone would crowd into someone’s home or their backyard and huddle around a keg. The music would not sound that great, and people would just stand up and mill around in a bored fashion. But now, my friends and I get on a bus and have a blast. It really is a lot more fun.
We live in a place that is very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter.
When my daughter and her fiance told us that they wanted to get a party bus for their special day, my husband and I decided to make that one of our wedding gifts to them. They were doing the majority of the wedding costs on their own, and we wanted to do something for them that would help out. I had seen an advertisement that said to view our site for party buses, so I went there first to get some information. I wanted to know what kind of party buses were available, and I also wanted to get price quotes on the ones that we narrowed their choices down to.
I was really surprised when I saw just how many party buses are in their fleet. I was expecting to see just a couple, but they have a large fleet of party buses that can transport from 20 or so up to 50 people.
You’ve planned and packed – you’re all ready for your trip – but you may have overlooked one of the key ingredients for a great vacation: taking the necessary steps to make sure you and your family have a safe and healthy trip.
The healthier your body is, the easier it will be for you to adapt to the effects of jet lag. If you plan a few days ahead, however, even the most out-of-shape may be able to head off the misery of jet lag. Several days before you leave, try going to bed a little earlier or a little later (if you are flying east or west, respectively), and start a stretching regiment. Hydrate yourself and eat lightly the day you travel. The headache, light-headedness and nausea associated with jet lag should lessen significantly when such measures are taken.
COMMON TRAVEL AILMENTS
Motion sickness is an unpleasant problem for many travelers; however, there are some over-the-counter and prescription medications available. If you wish to combat motion sickness on your own, try the following:
When traveling by car, try to sit in the front seat and, if you can, avoid reading as it only heightens the feeling of motion sickness.
When traveling by boat, sit as close to the middle of the vessel as possible and look straight ahead at the horizon, a fixed point that will not move. Today’s high-tech cruise ships are built for comfort, with stabilizers for smooth sailing, and most passengers experience little or no motion sickness.
When flying, try to sit near the wing of the plane, or the side where you are accustomed to driving. Ear plugs also may help.
Extremes: Heatstroke and Hypothermia
To avoid heatstroke, stay out of the sun for prolonged periods of time. By the same token, try to avoid unusually cold water to prevent hypothermia.
It’s very easy to get caught up in the excitement of a vacation and get dehydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration, and don’t wait until you feel thirsty. Avoid caffeinated drinks, which can dehydrate you even more.
People who suffer from allergies should take the same precautions on vacation as they do at home. Bring any medications used on a regular basis. It’s also a good idea to bring an antihistamine in case of accidental exposure to a substance that triggers an allergic reaction. It also may be helpful to pack your own pillowcase for use in hotels, and to request a non-smoking room.
The inflammation of the joints that occurs with arthritis may be especially troubling during long trips that restrict movement. Taking frequent breaks to walk around and relieve stiff joints and muscles can make car, plane and cruise trips more enjoyable. Remember to pack aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or any prescription medications you normally use for arthritis.
There’s nothing more miserable than getting sick while on vacation. For most destinations, the major health risk to travelers is diarrhea, which may be easily avoided. In general, common sense prevails. When in doubt, steer clear of uncooked meat, raw fruits and vegetables and unpasteurized milk products, and drink only bottled water (although the tip of the bottle may be contaminated, so wipe it clean before drinking from it) or water that has been boiled for at least 20 minutes. If you begin to feel sick or develop a fever, rest and drink tea or purified water. Most cases of traveler’s diarrhea clear up within a few days.
Overactive Bladder and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
If you suffer from an overactive bladder or irritable bowel syndrome, you may require frequent bathroom visits during long trips. Over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medications are often helpful for the latter, and there are prescription medications available for people who may experience more severe symptoms. Avoiding stress, caffeine, and certain types of high-fat foods can help keep these conditions under control.
Animal and Insect Bites
If you are bitten by a wild animal, it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible. Many animal bites require a tetanus shot and, in certain cases, a rabies shot. If bitten by a snake, lie as still as possible so not to spread the venom that may be present; then send others to get help immediately.
Check your body for ticks. Remove any with tweezers and watch the area for rash over the course of the next few weeks. See your doctor if you develop abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, rash, cough or weight loss.
FIRST AID KIT
It’s a good idea to keep a first-aid kit handy for any emergencies that may arise during your trip. It should include:
A first-aid manual Throat lozenges
Bandages, gauze and tape Anti-diarrheal medication
Scissors Motion sickness medication
Tweezers Water purification tablets
Antibiotic ointment Insect repellent
Antiseptic Calamine lotion
Antihistamine Cortisone cream
Cold and flu tablets Health and vaccination records
PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS
Work with your travel agent to get as much information as possible about the destination, especially if you will be traveling alone.
Stay in hotels on well-traveled streets in safer areas of any city. The more expensive hotels usually have better security. Stay on lower level floors in case of fire or other need to evacuate quickly. Avoid the first floor, as it may not be safe from burglars. When returning to your hotel at night, use the main entrance. Be observant before entering parking lots.
Close and lock your hotel room door at all times. Check sliding glass doors, windows and connecting room doors. Acquaint yourself with the location of stairways, fire escapes, exits and alarms.
Do not answer your hotel room door without verifying who it is. If someone claims to be a hotel employee, call the front desk to verify. Never invite strangers into your room.
If you see suspicious activity or suspicious object, contact someone in authority immediately.
Your travel agent can arrange for transfers from the airport or port, if necessary. Taxis or private car hires are recommended, as you are more insulated. Most airports, ports and train stations have areas clearly marked for taxis and car service pick-up. Do not enter any vehicle that does not have a proper license or does not pick you up from the designated area.
If you will be renting a car, get maps in advance and clearly write out the directions from the airport to your hotel. If you need to stop for directions, go to well-lit public areas. Keep the phone numbers of your destinations with you.
Lock your car doors while driving. Do not pick up strangers or stop for people you don’t know. Police cars will have blue and red lights; do not stop for cars flashing their high-beams.
Keep a low profile
Do not discuss your travel plans or itinerary publicly. Vary your schedule, if possible. Vary travel routes when possible.
Maintain a low profile. Dress down, if possible, and leave the expensive jewelry and watches at home. Do not display large amounts of cash or travelers checks. Look like a person of modest means. Do not leave your itinerary or other sensitive business information in your hotel room.
Blend in with the locals as best you can so you do not want to stand out. Cultural and racial differences may make this impossible, but you can still make yourself look like a person of modest means.
Be alert for surveillance, especially in high-risk countries. Kidnappers and extortionists identify their targets and then watch their potential victims to determine daily patterns.
Avoid disturbances and civil demonstrations, as they may become violent. Seek safe shelter away from the disturbance as quickly as possible.
Out and about
Keep your valuables, including passports, etc., in a money belt concealed under your clothes. Or, use the hotel safe to store valuables. Keep a copy of your passport with you at all times, but separate from where you are carrying your passport. In high-risk countries, it is a good idea to check in with the American Embassy and provide them with a copy of your passport in case you need to have it replaced. Pickpockets and thieves operate widely in many cities around the world, but especially near tourist attractions.
Whenever you use your credit card, keep an eye on it until it is returned to you. Always verify that it is your credit card before storing it again. Check credit cards when they are returned
If you are unfamiliar with the local language, carry a card or matchbook with the hotel’s name and address. You can show the card or matchbook to a cab driver or police officer if you get lost. Before leaving the United States, make up several pocket cards with key phrases in the local language. (i.e., “Which way is the airport?” and “Where are the restrooms?”)
Be careful when out on the town at night. Watch your drinks being poured and never accept a drink from a stranger. Get advice from your hotel concierge or other trusted source about reputable restaurants and other entertainment. Avoid being out on the streets late at night. Have your hotel arrange for car service or taxi service and know the addresses and directions before getting in the car.
BLAZING YOUR OWN TRAIL SAFELY
If you’re charting unknown territory, you’re going to want to take extra precautions to avoid putting yourself in harm’s way. Plan for the worst. Pack a survival kit that includes your first aid kit, a map, compass, flashlight, knife, waterproof firestarter, personal shelter, whistle, warm clothing, sturdy hiking boots, rain wear, high-energy food and water. Ask your doctor about necessary immunizations. Take a first aid course before you leave and learn the ABC’s of treating emergencies. Learn to recognize medical emergencies and respond to them immediately and appropriately, comforting the victim until help arrives. As common sense would dictate, avoid areas of natural hazards such as avalanche, rock fall, floods, and hazardous plants and animals, and check for potential hazards of terrain, sanitation (including infectious disease) and climate.
Finally, the best thing you can do for yourself to keep healthy and happy while on vacation is to purchase travel insurance. Neither Medicare nor Medicaid pays for care outside the United States, and most health insurance plans don’t, either. Travel insurance is advisable, especially since the odds are you or someone in your family will need to seek some type of medical assistance while away. Talk with your travel agent to help you decide what coverage you’ll need based on your type of travel (developing country, adventure safari, Disneyland, etc.). Be sure to examine different policies, make careful inquiries and always read the fine print. Two features are essential: a 24-hour, toll-free, English-language phone assistance and a plan that provides direct, immediate payment to the medical provider.
Although you can’t anticipate every contingency, these are steps you can take to ensure a healthy vacation. For travelers with special needs, your travel agent can assist you with any personalized services.
Most of us learn the hard way…and still forget to pack that elusive item for our next trip.
After all of my travels, mostly cruises and a smattering of hotels, I’ve learned to keep these ten essential items pre-packed, ready to toss into whatever suitcase I plan to take.
- A flashlight. Seems kind of obvious…for when the lights go out. But what about if there’s a fire (not raging out of control of course but escapable)? When keeping low and crawling to the nearest door, it would be nice to have a flashlight. Power failure. Looking behind furniture for that earring that fell. I never travel without one.
- Cute little foam ear plugs. Yes, they work. Whether your roommate is a snorer or your neighbors are tossing about all night or even a drippy shower, these things really muffle the sounds.
- Zip-lock bags. A zillion uses are possible; for packing a piece of fruit for your day trip/shore excursion, safe storage for that gorgeous new silk scarf, accumulation of bar coasters (so you can remember what beer you tried) and business cards, those pesky little amenity bottles, shells collected at that remote beach. You just never know.
- Thermos bottle. Don’t go on a trip without one. But you’re going on a cruise, you say. OK…I don’t know about you, however after a few days at sea, I easily tire of having room service deliver my coffee and Danish. I don’t put out the hang-tag on the doorknob because it never fails that if I request an early coffee, I will have had trouble falling asleep and would rather sleep late. Or vice versa; I wake up early and have to wait till it arrives. With my own thermos, here’s what I do: making sure it’s clean of course, I fill it up at the 24/hour coffee stand just before I retire. In consideration of others, I use one of the ship’s coffee cups to fill my thermos with the near-boiling hot water or coffee. Quickly, I put on the cap and head back to my room. Oh…I bring back a cookie, too. In the morning, at my leisure, I uncap my thermos and pour the still-hot coffee or water into a coffee cup. Starbuck’s Via is perfect for adding to the hot water. I keep a carton of milk in the refrigerator and have sugar packets and stirrers. This way, I can enjoy a steamy cup of coffee when I want it, usually within seconds of when my feet touch the ground. Also, bring a nice covered coffee mug, too. But remember…don’t fill any containers directly from the public spouts. It’s just not sanitary. It’s so nice to walk around the deck, not spill your coffee and have those “ahhhh” moments to savor.
- Electric power strip. First, make sure that the ship allows this in your cabin. If they do, never leave it unattended and unplug it when not in use. Make sure it has an automatic reset switch. Fire is the worst hazard aboard a ship. That said, if you have a lot of equipment that you absolutely must lug around with you, you know it’s impossible to recharge everything at the same time with one, maybe two outlets. The power strip is great because you can recharge your laptop, iPhone, camera battery and Bluetooth earpiece all at once. Start charging when you return to your room and by the time you’ve unpacked your souvenirs, relaxed for a half hour, showered and dressed for dinner, everything will be ready to go. Conversely, if the idea of a power strip is either too cumbersome to pack or just in case it’s not allowed, bring a couple of European converters, instead. Much lighter and compact, you might be able to plug in three or four electronic pieces, especially if you are on a cruise ship from North America. European river ships only have 220 voltage outlets. And usually only two of them.
- Bubble wrap. Huh? OK…so tell me how you manage to bring home those ultra breakables? Or what if you must mail some of your things home along the way? You can layer the bubble wrap in between your clothes (helps prevent wrinkles, too) and then use as needed. When I’m on a river cruise in Europe, I always end up shipping clothes and souvenirs home. And without bubble wrap, I used to worry about something breaking in transit. If you need to know the ins and outs of shipping from Europe, let me know. I’ve done that in a half-dozen cities, both river and ocean cruises.
- Suction hooks. Goofy little gizmos that are so incredibly handy. Just stick them on the bathroom walls and voila! Instant storage hooks. Depending upon the interior of your room, you can use these for caps, scarves, light jackets,wo etc. Most ships only have two or three hooks, usually on the inside of the bathroom door. Hotels never seem to have any hooks at all.
- EXTRA AA / AAA batteries. This is so obvious, but so easy to overlook. Not everything is rechargeable. I also suggest bringing a spare camera battery, too.
- Portable battery charger for your iPhone. There are several of these on the market…and I never travel without one. The two that I am familiar with are Mophie and Beam Box Power Pack. Both will allow you to get an addition 5-7 hours of use (depending on what your are doing â€“ video burns up juice like crazy.) Just charge it up, snap it onto your iPhone like a protective case. When you get the dreaded “10% power remaining” message, simply flick the switch and it will recharge your phone.
- Extra SD cards and at least an 8 GB flash drive. I could write a book about this idea. In many countries, it’s nearly impossible to find a brand name SD card. I once bought an unpronounceable named SD card solely out of desperation. The next day it “blew up’ in my camera and I lost four days worth of photos, including an entire ship tour.
Which brings me to my next must-do: every night, back up your photos in at least one other place. I learned the hard way…the one night that I didn’t’t download, the next day was when the SD card crashed. Now I back up onto a flash drive and transfer all the photos to my laptop EVERY NIGHT. The photos remain on the flash drive until I get home. Bring a small case to keep all of the flash drives and SD cards. Or a small Zip-Lock bag.
That’s how I travel…all this and only one medium-size suitcase and my wheeled carry-on with my computer and electronics. Don’t forget small packets of clothes detergent (Tide and Woolite make small packets, but put them into a Zip-Lock bag!)
The permission slips are signed, your bags are packed and you’re, like, so ready to ditch the classroom and head out on your class trip. Travel is an exciting opportunity to experience different places and wondrous cultures, so the key is not to blow it by doing something that will ruin the trip for yourself and others.
While it’s tempting to forget about all the rules as soon as your chaperones turn their backs, you should keep in mind these tips from ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents). Some of the most travel-wise people in the world, ASTA members know that studying for your upcoming trip is a homework assignment you’ll actually enjoy.
student travel, what to know before you goBefore You Go
Before you go, learn about the local laws and customs of the countries you’re visiting, especially those concerning drinking age, drugs and curfews. You are not immune to a country’s laws just because you’re a visitor, and you can be arrested.
Bring an extra pair of glasses or contact lenses. It’s hard to enjoy the sights when you can’t see them.
Pack a simple first aid kit with bandages, antibiotic cream and pain relievers. It’s a good thing to have “just in case.” And tell your trip leaders about any medications you’re taking.
Give your parents the phone and fax number of your hotel, the cell phone numbers of the chaperones and a full itinerary of your trip. If anything changes during the trip, e-mail your parents immediately with the new info.
Pack all valuables, medications, travel documents and passport in your carry-on bag. Occasionally checked luggage gets lost at airports, so you want to have your important items on you.
While You’re There
Do not carry all your cash at once, especially if all you need is enough to buy lunch and a few sodas. And keep your wallet in a zippered pocket, preferably inside your jacket. If you need to exchange money in a foreign country, only use authorized vendors like banks.
Don’t be flashy. Wear an old, inexpensive watch and leave the bling at home. You don’t want to be a walking target for thieves. If you bring a fancy digital camera or an MP3 player, don’t flaunt them.
When you check in at your hotel, grab a card from the counter with the hotel’s name, address and phone number on it. Keep this card on you at all times.
Look both ways before crossing the streets. Yes, you’ve heard that a billion times, but you’ll be surprised how easy it is to step into oncoming traffic in foreign countries, especially the ones where they drive on the other side of the road.
Student Travel, be respectfulTravel with a buddy at all times and never wander off alone from the group.
Be respectful around, and ask permission before taking photographs of, churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and other religious sites. Also, ask permission before taking photographs of government buildings and military installations. In some countries you can be detained for taking a picture of the wrong building.
Talk to your trip leader or to a travel agent about types of food or beverages to avoid, and don’t buy food from street vendors.
Going on an extended class trip may be the most fun you’ll ever have while actually learning something. If you follow the rules above and stay out of trouble, the only memories you’ll bring back are good ones.

So that you can enjoy a stay at a decent hotel without burning a hole in your wallet, it is important that you know where to look for the best deals available. Providing many new sources of information about such deals that makes it easier to find a good deal online is the internet. However, by the large amount of information available, you may be overwhelmed, which may make you more confused regarding where and how to start instead. Therefore, a list of useful tips that you may follow to make sure that you are getting the best hotel deals possible is what I have compiled. The best place to start your search for cheap hotels is the internet as there are many aggregate online travel sites which have links to numerous hotels around the world. All the information that you need to know about the hotels including the facilities, location and images is provided by these sites as well as comparing rates between different hotels and websites in which they specialize in. Comparing hotels with similar characteristics, such as being within the same area or with the same star rating, thus quickly and easily narrowing down your search are among the things you can thus customize your search into. The best rates that are lower than booking directly at a hotel’s website are usually what these websites offer. However, reading the fine print for additional charges or restrictions, such as your booking being non-refundable is something you must do.
The Essentials of Hotels – Revisited
Lessons Learned from Years with Accommodation
You may discover that, in general, the rates of many hotels in your chosen destination, including the usually cheaper ones, are higher than usual during the peak travel seasons which may include extended school vacation periods and long weekends. Surprisingly, however, certain websites offer attractive deals for hotels even during this busy period. When looking for low hotel rates in your destination, also an important consideration is the location of the hotel. Generally, as it is usually cheaper than one that is in a more convenient location, try to find a hotel in areas such as the suburbs that is slightly less accessible or is located away from the city center. Special promotions and deals for hotels, when booking through online booking portals, should be on your list of things to look out for since many of which run for a limited time only. Netting you attractive discounts are many of these deals as long as if you fulfill a requirement for a minimum number of nights’ stay, if there is any.

A wallflower is a single woman at the get together who actually stands shyly by the wall without stepping into activity or simply discussion. Truth is this applies to gentlemen too. You can find males that simply don’t know how to pick up girls. These introverts remain in the particular shadows while their particular close friends have all the good fortune. Actually you might have seen as your classmates very easily help make discussion, dance, and plan long term dates. You happen to be lucky never to fumble over words when asking if there is far more tea to be enjoyed. It is deemed an unlucky situation, and sometimes replicated. This doesn’t have to be this way, however. You don’t need to grow to be Mr. Favorite to attract attention from women at the social gathering.
Girls reply to many aspects. Check out and make sure you’re dressed perfectly. Young ladies would like someone that likes you their look. They want to be with someone that aromas wonderful. Don’t soak in cologne, yet the great easy scent will get their consideration. Enter in the night having a beneficial mindset. If you are exhibiting self-denial from the beginning, you are not gonna be quite interesting. Make an effort to talk your self right into looking wonderful. Look for the positive relating to your scenario. Check out a website such as theguycornernyc.com for great recommendations on making contact with a girl. There is someone for everybody as they say. Sometimes it merely has a much more work to find them.
