After coming back from a skiing trip in Colorado, I shared some pictures with my friends. A friend of mine who lived in Japan for a couple of years when he was a teacher told me that there is no better place to go skiing than in Niseko. When he talked about how great the snow was and how cool it was to ski down the slopes, he nostalgic look on his face, as if he were back at the mountain again. He suggested that if I ever make it to Japan, I use one of the Niseko backcountry tours to get to the slopes and having the skiing experience of a lifetime. (more…)
The old folds at the local senior living facility mostly just sit around, playing bingo, checkers, or watching television. Even though many of them have relatives that come to visit them, they don’t do it often enough, and the resident can become bored. I decided to do something to cure this boredom for at least one day. I talked to the people who run the facility and asked them if I could use a Diamond Party Bus to take the residents somewhere nice. They agreed, and I made arrangements for the bus.
Once the residents were in the bus, we headed of to an outdoors area. This area is a tourist attraction where people can camp, hike, have picnics, feed animals, and in the winter, play in the show. (more…)
We have a corporate executive visit our office and small manufacturing facility about twice a year. I go through the same routine each time. I book the same suite in a five-star hotel, and I get him a Cadillac Escalade limo from Toronto Limos for the ride from the airport and to and from our facility. Our plant is operated by one manager and 20 people. We are very efficient and do not need supervision. However, it is corporate policy for having an annual inspection by upper management. They kind of live in a different world than we do. We make good money doing what we do, but we think differently about it. For us, limos are for weddings and proms. If I was coming in from the airport, I would be happy to have a ride in a friend’s pickup truck. The suits are a little different.
I am very happy that Paradise Toronto Limo has very clean vehicles that always look brand new. The first trip in for a visit the executive rode over in a cab. I heard a lot of comments about the cab being dirty and smelly. The executive also complained about the cab driver. (more…)
Some of my best friends, and I are going to a concert next month and we have been talking about transportation for some time. All of us want to drink the night of the concert, and so that kind of rules out having one of us be the designated driver unless we draw straws for it or something. Instead, we came up with an awesome idea and we are going to check out its feasibility. That is why I am looking on www.partybustoronto.limo to check out prices to see how much it is going to cost for us to be able to rent a party bus out for the concert.
Of course it won’t be cheap, but that’s not the point, really, because if we decide to go to it and everyone drinks, then we’d have to like rent hotel rooms near the concert venue, and then pay for taxis to get us from the venue to the hotel, unless it just happened to be close enough to walk to. So in the grand scheme of things, we will probably be able to save money by going this route over the alternative that I just described.
I know that I also want to just rent a party bus because it sounds awesome and I have never been on one before. But I have heard other friends tell me about great times that they’ve had on one. I need to learn a bit more about the prices and the sizes of party buses that are available in this area, and see what sort of price I can get on a party bus that is the right size for the group we have going to this concert. Then I will try to figure out if I can go ahead and try to book it today.
When my boss told me that we were going to have a work retreat in London, I asked him how he wanted me to arrange transportation there. Normally when we have a retreat, it is closer and people just drive themselves there. With London being two hours away, I knew that would not be the best solution. There are nearly 40 of us that go to these retreats on a regular basis, so I was happy when he told me to look into a Platinum party bus rental in Toronto.
I knew that they had party buses that would hold around 20 something people, but I wasn’t sure how many their largest bus would hold. (more…)
Weddings, in my opinion, can really get out of hand. We started out with our daughter getting married and saying she was only wanting a small reception with about 50 guests. I was thinking how that would be great for my wallet. I can see your eyes rolling and thinking I am a tightwad. Though probably not from you folks who have paid for a wedding. We were getting a small limo to transport the small wedding party. Then things grew to a proportion that we had to use a Toronto party bus rental to get the wedding party from the church to the reception hall. Plus, we had to book a bigger wedding reception facility.
Our 50 guests turned into 300 people. My wife wanted to invite a lot of people on her side and my side of the family. Then my in-laws and my parents wanted to invite a ton of people. Our daughter actually still wanted a small wedding. (more…)
I like reading about life on a sub-tropical island in a place far away from where I live. I read the Tenerife blog a lot more in the winter time than I do in the summer. When the cold rolls in here where we live, I dream a lot about warm waters, sunshine and feeling ocean breezes on my face. I was pretty much flabbergasted by a swimmer’s personal view from inside an infinity pool that faced the waters of Tenerife. It looked like the swimming pool connected directly with the water of the secluded bay where the home is located. I have always dreamed of owning a property like that. I like reading travel magazines and travel websites that talk about places you can lease or own in sub-tropical places such as Tenerife. (more…)
I am just curious as to whether or not it is the sort of place where you need to rent a car. My girl and I were looking at planning a short trip down there, say around four or five days. We would skip out of work on Wednesday and miss work Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and the next Monday. We could get down there from the UK rather quickly. However we were looking at this site http://www.carhiremajorcaairport.co and wondering how necessary a car rental would be in this sort of place. Obviously we are pretty much thinking about this as a chance to party for a few days. This would involve a lot of laying in the sun, a lot of dancing to loud music and quite a little bit of alcohol. Obviously the last thing does not mix all that well with motor vehicles. At any rate the place is a pretty small island and there is not so much to see that you could not see with some other person driving.
In fact I suspect it might be better to rent the little motor scooter things. You could get one or two of them and get around just as well, at least so long as it does not rain. Rain seems to be a rather unlikely thing as well. From all that we have read it seems as though you are very likely to get a nearly perfect sunny day if you go to this island. That seems to be one of the main attractions in fact. I guess there are a few archaeological sites and cultural stuff. I am trying to figure out what we shall have time to see and whether or not we shall want to see it. I like to have plans for just in case.
Of course there is a limit to what we can do, just like any other couple we have so much money and we have to make our bills every month. We have the house to pay and we have to make two car payments and all of the insurance. Obviously you have stuff like food and clothes as well. We were checking out some exotic stuff like a week in a Kruger national park safari accommodation. We looked at this Kwambili Safari Lodge and tried to figure out what it would cost to fly over there and spend a week or so in the African bush. It is not like we are really sure that is practical. To start with, getting there must be a huge pain. (more…)
When I had to go to Toronto for business, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to get around town. Sometimes, I will just take a taxi or hire a driver to get me to my hotel, but I knew that I was going to have a lot of downtime while in Toronto. I decided to look at a car hire in Toronto to see if that would be worth doing. I decided that if I had my own car that I could drive around when I was not in meetings, then I would be able to do some sightseeing.
That is something that I really do enjoy doing, especially when I have as much free time as I will have in Toronto. (more…)
My company is going to be having regular business meetings located in Mumbai, and I am in the process of trying to figure out a regular transportation method for these meetings. There has been too much disruption, in the past, due to people not being able to get to the meeting on time. There have been a variety of different problems, and too many to list right now. But anyway, I am looking for corporate taxi services in mumbai as I feel that could be the best solution to our problems.
If we could hire corporate taxis for all of the members of the business, who will need to travel across Mumbai, to make it to where the meetings are going to be held, then there would be a lot less of a chance that anyone will be delayed in getting there. (more…)
It is my 15th wedding anniversary, well not yet, but it is going to be in the near future. Anyway, I am going to try to do something special with my wife, and I want to take her to an exotic foreign country. I have been thinking about it a lot, and the more I think about it, the more I realize that I want to go New Zealand. I am looking at http://greenstonelodge.com which is a website that i had the good fortune to come across in my search for travel information about New Zealand. It looks very quaint and it appears to be just the sort of accommodation that I want to rent when we go to celebrate our wedding anniversary on this trip.
I know that going to New Zealand will be something that my wife will really enjoy and that is one of the main reasons that I am planning this trip. (more…)
It took me quite some time to catch on, but at long last I have gotten a job as a chauffeur. I have had my license for about three months already and I have just now cashed my first paycheck, at least the first one for driving actually. I got a job driving a nice Lincoln Town car for an employee owned car service at bwi. At first I had to do all the crap jobs. I was going into work in the middle of the morning, after all of the drivers got done for the night. Actually you are usually out driving until rather late at night or even early in the morning it seems. I would clean out the cars, vacuum them out and wash them.
I like it quiet and peaceful on holiday. I like a nice chalet or caravan to have as a home base for our holiday adventures rather than a hotel room. You could offer me the finest hotel room in the world, and I would prefer a caravan or chalet to stay in on our family holiday. Our last holiday was spent at misty waters. This is a beautiful holiday park.
I have a close relative who lives in the United States. He goes on holiday, or vacation as he calls it, to woodland or countryside settings each year. Over there they call chalets cabins. He and his family like to go stay at their favorite cabin. I really never knew what that meant until we visited one year and stayed for a time in a cabin in the mountains. It was beautiful.
To some, thinking of New York mostly conjures up images of our nation’s biggest city, but that’s just a drop in the bucket when it comes to what you can see in the state of New York. Outside of the hustle and bustle of the city, there are lots of small towns that are so charmingly rural they can relax even the most stressed-out busy-bodies for a little while. One of upstate New York’s most idyllic regions is the area known as the Finger Lakes. Whether you’re escaping the noise of the city or just trying to explore a new part of the country, you can’t go wrong with a visit to the Finger Lakes.
You might be thinking that the tiny populations of the rural towns around the Lakes mean that there’s nothing to do there. In fact, there is lots of interesting stuff to see and do around the area. If you don’t mind riding around to nearby towns, you can check out some of the local attractions. There is great deal of history to be explored around Lake Seneca. (more…)
Seneca, New York is a small town with population of less, than 3,000 but rich in historical significance. The ideas below will hopefully convince you to visit this unique settlement.
Seneca is located in Ontario County, South of Lake Ontario. The town was named after the Seneca people living in the area. Their name means “People of the Great Hill”. There are lots of important sites around the city having significant artifacts related to the Seneca tribe.
The area was part of the purchase of Oliver Phelps and Nathaniel Gorham in 1788 in which they purchased the land between Lake Ontario and the Pennsylvania border from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The town was finally organized in 1793.
Seneca Park can provide recreation and a meeting facility for small family or company meetings. (more…)
