Atlanta, a bustling, extravagant city, is the capital of Georgia. It is located in the foreland of the southern foothills of the Piedmont Plateau, on the watershed between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. Originally, the city was planned to be a railway junction. It quickly prospered into a significant commercial town. Atlanta is the fastest growing metropolitan area in the United States, with a growth of 20.5% between 2000 and 2006.

Atlanta has excellent transportation facilities as expected from such a premier city. Car rental can go a long way in providing tourists with a true insight of the city. If you are somebody who loves modernity and advanced technologies, you will surely enjoy your visits to the World of Coca-Cola and the Inside CNN Studio Tours. You can reach these famous attractions comfortably with car rental.

Driving to famous tourist spots such as the Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta Botanical Garden will enable you to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of nature. The thirst of art lovers is quenched as well with High Museum of Art providing the chance to view exceptional art works. Animal enthusiasts are not going to be disappointed either as Zoo Atlanta is waiting with unique and rare animals from all parts of the world.

Taking your car rental to the Atlanta History Center and the Fernbank Museum of Natural History can make you wonder about the potential of our predecessors. If you have your children with you, do not forget to visit The Children's Museum of Atlanta. Centennial Olympic Park and Six Flags over Georgia are other popular tourist attractions of Atlanta, the city that hosted the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.

Travelling to the lovely French coast on a ferry is a wonderful experience. The refreshing sea breeze, the colourful atmosphere on board and the glorious time to rejuvenate your spirits are enchanting enough to pack your bags for a short weekend trip.

And why only bags, what about vehicles? Yes, though this may sound a little bit unbelievable, there are many ferries that have facilities to carry your personal vehicles, a hatchback or an SUV, to the other side of the sea.

The expenses are considerable and do vary. In case you are registering space for carrying along a small 4-seater car, the costs are lesser when compared to booking space for a light-weight truck.

Nevertheless, you always can exercise the exciting amenity of taking your vehicle on board, and driving open heartedly through the magnificent French coastline.

It is always a wise thing to book your car space in advance, in order to avoid any unnecessary hassles moments prior to start of your journey. The tickets can be easily booked on the internet with the help of a credit card.

You must remember a few more things on board of France ferries when you take your car along. Always carry the relevant documents with you that are related to your car or truck. The ownership papers, the insurance documents and most importantly, your license; all these are very essential if you want to enjoy a good drive on wheels after your brief sea voyage.

Most of the people in this world including me would die to visit Burj Dubai at least once in their lives. Take a look at some of the things about Burj Dubai:

  1. Its 800 feet tall tower, world’s largest, more than 1000 feet taller than Taipei 101 the previous record holding tower on earth.

Welcome 2010 with the hope that year will bring a lot of joy for all of us. Have made few plans to travel places that I havn't before, one of the places that I wish to visit is Egypt, have seen and heard a lot about the country on TV and books. I might be visiting Egypt by the end of 2010.

I am sure people have different plans in their minds, many would start their year visiting places like Paris, Switzerland, London, new york and many more... one of my friends is ready to go to Vancouver for winter Olympics, he's the one who is more in to sports, he says that would be his first and only place he will be visiting in 2010.

Are you guys also going to visit popular places in 2010? where would you go in 2010 and when? I would love to hear from people, it really makes me happy to hear from people.

If you’ve lived in UK all your life and you’ve never been on a ferry to France, you’ve really missed something (with sea sickness sufferers being an exception). Ferries to France give you a great travelling option when it comes to crossing the channel, and there are a number of reasons that this mode of transport finds so many takers. For starters, you can even take your car with you.

Besides, travelling onboard a ferry does not bind you the way that travelling in an aeroplane would. You do not have to stay put in your seat, and even if you do not book a suite or a cabin, you still have the freedom to walk on the deck of the ferry as and when you please. Try doing that in the aisle of an aeroplane. Also, you can carry pretty much as much luggage as you want to, with the basic guide being that as long as it can fit in your car, you can take it.

Travelling onboard a ferry to France also gives you options galore when it comes to onboard activities. Cross channel ferries that ply in between these countries are known to provide services such as round the clock restaurants, bars, and even casinos. Most well equipped ferries also have dedicated play areas for the young ones, and that makes them the perfect family getaway vehicle.

So the next time you intend to take your family on a holiday; do make sure that you give enough thought to this great option.

I recently came across one of the best bed and breakfast sites called airbed and breakfast, it's started just a few years back, it's research work and marketing campaigns were so good that the site has become number one in providing airbed and breakfast.

What works for the site is the easiness and user friendliness features, I was quite new to it but when I entered into the site, it appeared as If I am a pro at handling things there.

Site has users from as many as over 90 countries and have listed their rooms in the site, sites gives the owner who wants to list his or her room on the site to build the social profile on AB&B, which is really fantastic.

If you are looking for cheap rooms anywhere around the world i would recommend visit, I am sure you will easily get a stylish stay at less!

Recently I saw people from Vancouver, Canada rushing to the site to post their rooms for the upcoming winter Olympics in Feb 2010, if you are interested in posting your rooms on the site too, just go ahead and do it, listing your room on the site is free, what you pay airbnb is the very little commission, I am also thinking about posting my room on the site sooner!

Backpacking is fun, thrill and adventure. But it needs to be judiciously planned in order to stay away from difficulties that may mar all the fun.

Five Most Essential Items That a Backpacker Must Carry

1.Compass:A compass is the only device that can help one find his way through unknown routes. It becomes particularly helpful in poor weather conditions when the landmarks become invisible. GPS devices are also worth having.

2.Map:A map tells a hiker where he is and how far he needs to go. Moreover, it helps one in finding water, campsites and often an emergency exit way in the event of an accident.

3.Food in excess:While you are on a backpacking trip, a number of incidents can detain you. A difficult terrain, hours lost in finding the way, a lengthened detour or an injury can all contribute to an unplanned delay. In these situations, excess food kept in the reserve is absolutely necessary to keep the physical energy and the mental motivation up.

4.Water and means of purifying it:The organs and muscles of our body cannot perform properly in absence of adequate water. Absence of water also makes one susceptible to altitude sickness and hypothermia. And, enduring acute thirst for hours is too big a pain in itself. But, having adequate water is not enough on a backpacking trip. The backpacker should have means, of purifying the water, at his disposal. Drinking impure and contaminated water often threatens the lives of backpackers with fatal diseases.

5.First-Aid Kit:First-aid kits for backpackers are pre-packaged and are readily available at different outlets. A first-aid kit is immensely helpful in case of any kind of accident and injury. A backpacker can even enhance his first-aid awareness by attending basic classes with Wilderness First-Aid or American Red Cross.

Traveling is fun. But nobody ever thinks of the risk in traveling like having a holiday accident or a mishap. It is better to be prepared so that one can enjoy the traveling experience without any fear. Before planning a trip it is better to be prepared by getting travel insurance so that your family is safe while you are on board. Generally travel insurance helps to cover the expenses and losses which happen while you are traveling. This can be both inside one’s own country and outside the country too. There are temporary travel insurances too which can be got at the last minute before booking the trip so that it covers exactly the expenses during the trip.

Whether you are planning to go for a business trip outside your country or you are planning to go abroad for studies, travel insurance is a must. Without a travel insurance one cannot meet the expenses occurred during the travel time. When going on a holiday or a business trip, travelling without insurance is not healthy as the medical bills will be costlier when compared to one’s own place and there is no point in taking risk. What if something goes wrong? It is always better to protect yourself from the unwanted situations by getting the best travel insurance so that you can travel at peace. There will be no need to rely on strangers at the unknown place. By getting a travel insurance you may protect yourself from the financial and medical expenses and can have a soothing travelling experience. The safer you’re the more you will enjoy the travel.
