Top Tips For Visiting Canada – Niagara Falls

As you know from some of my older posts, Canada is a special place for me. Yes My sister lives there and yes it’s my favourite holiday destination. But I have never shared my tops tips with you on why Canada especially Niagara Falls is one of the best places to visit. I want to add that Canadians are extremely friendly and helpful so don’t be afraid to ask for help or directions while you are there.

Niagara Falls is one of natures wonders of the world. The majestic falls are stunning. Taking a boat ride on the Lady of the Mist around the falls is not to be missed. If you head to the falls at night they do a breathtaking light show with the falls lit up in different colours. We stayed in a hotel right on the falls and the relaxing sound of the water from the waterfalls by night is amazing.

How to Have an Awesome Trip to Istanbul

This article describes the essentials about Istanbul that all visitors should know about to make their trip as smooth as possible.

How to Get to Istanbul from the Airport:

Before we start, it’s worth mentioning that there are two airports in Istanbul. The first is Istanbul Ataturk Airport and the second is Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. The first is located on the European side and the second on the Asian side of Istanbul. There are several ways to get to the city including the airport bus, a taxi, or using a private airport transfer such as Blacklane.

If you’re coming from the Asian side, using the bus is more time consuming because you then have to take a ferry across the Bosphorus to get to the historical center. Taxis are prone to overcharging tourists and their driving style isn’t the safest. The final and probably the most suitable way is by arranging a private transfer, which gives you a safe airport transfer with kids. Drivers are more careful and will drop you off at the door of your hotel.

The Ultimate Guide to Surviving a Long Car Journey

A couple of times a year we always make a long car journey from Cornwall to Derbyshire/Yorkshire to see family. Sometimes we have made this journey in Winter, and I can tell you the Winter roads up there are nothing like the ones down here in Cornwall.

We are making the trip up to Derbyshire in October and I want to share with you some tips on surviving a long car and also how to stay safe.
