Europe Travel Tips: Vignettes

If you are travelling through Europe with a car, one essential thing, which you should know about your problem-free car ride, is that you should have a valid vignette for using the road network of the country you are travelling in.

As the vignettes are requested when you are stopped by a traffic police officer, you should be able to present it in order to avoid getting an undesider fine.

One very simple way to have all the necessary documentation is to stop at the first major brand gas station and to ask about the necessary vignettes in the country. You should also ask if there is additional payment requested for using the highway system in the country, as it might have to be paid separately.

The positive site of using known gas station chains is that you will be able to pay via credit card if you still have no local currency (some EU countries still use their own currency and not the EUR).

Vignettes can be used for a single day or for a week and when buying one you should consider if you will pass trough the country again on your way back.

Europe Travel Destinations: Provance, France

Many times a person thinks of France, there is a very tale-like, colorful picture, which comes on mind. It a splendid view pictorous hills with grapes and/or lavender, usually accompanied by a lovely two-stores chato and a small charming river. And this peaceful picture of a dream has a name - Provance.

Provance is not just a nice country side. It is also not just a place where you go to take a rest from the buzz of the city lights. It is simply a dream.

Provance is the place, where you just let go and become a tiny part of the great wide universe, which has found its exact place. It is a peace of mind, which will welcome you with a warm tasteful delight, will make you question yourself why you live somewhere other than there and will show you off with an invitation for a soonest comeback.

It is very difficult to describe what makes Provance the dream, which it is, but if we have to point some of the essential joys, which form the Provance feeling, we have to mention the following:

Nature
There are so many colors in Provance and every one of them is related to a very simple simple thing in life, which makes it so special to enjoy:
red grapes and wine - the color of life and love, both gloriously related to the place, in which life is love
golden and brown - the colors of the ground, which receives the love and care of the people and gives them in return the joy from the food and the wine
purple lavender - the color of kings, giving both the sight and smell the joy of a dream coming to life

Wine
... a result of the love between man and land, who have established a relation resulting to a just one thing - love ... a love in a glass, giving you the taste of eternity, the smell of natures' favourite flowers and spices and the joy of capturing a perfect moment of time ...

Time
Time is no relevant in heaven ... and Provance is a heaven on Earth, unrelated to what is happening quite near and so far away ... when time has stopped nothing is happening, and when you are in Provance you are in its own time and space and everything which matters is the joy of being in a dream and living it with the one you care about and love ... and when the dream passes by and you are back home, just close your eyes and think about Provance and time will stop again ...

The people of Provance will welcome you with the warmth they nurture the land with, they will take care of you just like they grow everything, which makes the their home a heaven in a world so different from theirs, and will start a feeling in you, which will grow along with the red grapes and purple lavender and will make you feel home everytime you just close your eyes and smell the scent of a dream ...

Europe Travel Tips: Travel Documents

When you are planning a holiday in Europe it is very important to first chech what kind of documents you are required to carry on with you and to present to any custom authorities you go through.

International Passport

No matter where you come from, usually the most important ID document abroad is the International Passport. In order not to get into any unexpected situation, it is essential to check that your passport is still valid and its expiration date has not passed. If you have travelled a lot and there are no free pages left for another Visa, it is also necessary to inquire if you need to apply for a new passport before your holiday.
Even if you are an EU citizen going to another EU country, you should check if the rote for your trip does not pass trough non-EU member countries, as you will not be allowed to enter the country without a valid international passport.

Power of Attorneys

If there are children in the group and both parents are not travelling, it might be necessary to present a Power of Attorney or any other kind of document depending on your local legislation, which certifies that both parents agree that their child travells abroad.


If you are travelling by car with a leased or rented car, it is absolutely necessary to present to the customs authorities a document, stating that the car is owned by a bank ( or a leasing company ) or by the car rental company, and you are authorised to use the car and to cross borders.

Travel Insurance Policy

Although it is not a required document when you are travelling alone and at your own risk, the travel insurance policy is a must for every traveller. If you are on a holiday with an organized group, your travel agent might include the international travel policy in the holiday package. However, you need to check this, and in case such is not included, you can book one very easily.
If you are travelling alone, especially in countries and places you aren ot familiar with, it is highly recommended that you have a valid travel insurance policy with you, covering all possible travel risks from medical expenses to luggage loss. This can save you a lot of money if such situations occur, and will guarantee you the necessary peace of mind, so you can go on and fully enjoy your holiday.

Flight ticket

Always check if you have your flight ticket with you when you leave home or the hotel you have stayed in. If you are using an on-line check-in option before departure, you have to make sure that you have checked-in within the exact time for it and to print your ticket, as if you have not made it and you have to get a ticket on the airport, there will be an additional charge.

Europe city Guides: Paris Guide

Paris is love. Paris is art. Paris is passion. Paris is culture. Paris is ...

Paris is everything you can fall in love with in a city. It has accumulated history, culture and art like no other city in the world and everyone can find it attractive and interesting in so many ways ...

Paris has been the biggest city in both Europe and the world in different periods of history and it has evolved with it's own unique architecture, style and spirit. Paris is the most visited city in the world and there are thousands of reasons for this.

If you have ever wondered how the great kings have lived or what the greatest artists in history have created - Paris is the city to find it out.

The city is situated on the Seine river and the oldest part of Paris was formed on the islands Île Saint-Louis and Île de la Cité.

The modern architecture of Paris is a result of the 19th century re-modelling of the city, which allowed it to have wide and spacious main avenues instead of narrow streets. Paris still has the Alignment Law, based on which any new construction is regulated in accordance with the surrounding buildings and streets.

It is difficult to list all recommended sites in Paris and the city itself is a living and constantly evolving monument of human history, but some of the must-see historical and cultural sites are:

Eiffel Tower

The 324 m high iron lattice tower is probably the most recognizable symbol of Paris, and one of the best known constructions in the world. It is situated on the Champ de Mars and because of it uniqueness and perfect view over Paris, the Eiffel Tower is the most visited paid attraction in the world, visited by over 200 000 000 tourists since it was built in 1889 for the World’s Fair in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower is open for visitors and tourists can reach several different areas on the tower, getting up by stairs or by elevators. The top floor is at a height of 273 m and the view one sees from it is spectacular, both during the day and at night.

You can enjoy a nice traditional meal at some of the restaurants on the tower, while enjoying Paris from above, and knowing that you sit in the world's highest building between 1889 and 1930 can certainly make it a memorable experience.


Avenue des Champs-Élysées

The Champs-Élysées is one of world`s most famous streets and is one which makes you feel the spirit and glamour of Paris. The boulevard has a significant role in the architectural history of the city, starting as market area and being enriched with trees in the 17th century. By the 18th century the Champs-Élysées is mentioned in historical sources as Grande Avenue des Champs-Elisée and is a major boulevard, becoming cultural and economical center.

Some of the most significant and known landmarks of Paris are situated on or near the Avenue des Champs-Élysées - the Arc de Triomphe, the Place Charles de Gaulle ( known also as Place de l'Étoile ), the Élysée Palace and many others.

One of the remarkable events on the Champs-Élysées is the annual Bastille Day military parade, which is the largest in Europe, and is always viewed by the President of the Republic.
Avenue des Champs-Élysées is especially spectacular during the winter holidays, when it is decorated with most beautiful lighting.


Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is built in honor of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte following his military victory at Austerlitz and since then it is used by French troops to celebrate military success.

It is situated on a crossroad of twelve main avenues and due to its significance as a French military symbol, it holds the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the World War II.


Musée du Louvre

The Louvre is the most visited art museum in the world. It is also one of the biggest art museums, holding art and historical objects from prehistorical to modern age.

The Musée du Louvre is spectacular for so many reasons - the fascinating architecture of the building itself ( created as a military fortress in the 12th century ), the hostorical significance of the museum ( open since 1793 ), the symbolical importance of the museum for the french, who have wanted it to be a place for art and science .. The art collection has significantly increased during the reigns of Emperor Napoleon, Louis XVIII and the Second french Empire.

The Louvre hosts master pieces by Michelangelo, Rafaelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Velázquez, Van Dyk and almost every other significant artist from the past. One of the most visited and notorious paintings in the museum is the Mona Lisa, which is displayed in a special climate-controlled frame behind bulletproof glass.

There are about 380 000 art and hostorical objects, which the Louvre holds, devided in eight departments: Greek, Etruscan, and Roman ; Egyptian antiquities ; Islamic art ; Near Eastern antiquities ; Sculpture ; Decorative arts ; Prints and drawings and Painting.

One day visit to the Louvre is absolutely insufficient and we would recomment that you plan at leat 2 or 3 days for visiting the museum and exploring all the treasures it holds.



Paris has to offer many many other cultural and hostorical sites such as the artistic Montmartre area, the important Place de la Bastille, the oldest monument of Paris - the Egyptian obelisk, the vivid and entertaining Quartier Latin and many others.

Be sure to visit at least several bistros near the Seina river and to buy a nice painting of a Paris view from some of the street artists.

Nomatter how much time you spend there on your vacation, you will be eager to get back in the very near future. It is a city of beauty, joy and romance and we wish you a really enjoyable holiday in the city of Love.

Europe Travel Tips: Europe Audio Guides

If you are not travelling with a group of fellow tourists, but separately, it is quite expensive to pay for a local tour guide to inform you in detail about the city/cities you are visiting and to give you insights about all the fascination places you are able to see.

The major see sights offer paid audio guides in the main few foreign languages, which can be rented at the ticket desks of the sites, but paying for audio guide at every historical site is also not very ecnomical.

Therefore, we strongly advise you to look up for any available audio guides for the city/cities you are about to visit, as you will most probably be able to find on-line free ( or at least cheap ) audio guides for all main see sights in the major European cities. This way you can have very sufficient and interesting information on the lovely places you visit, and you will have the convenience of using your own smart-phone or mp3-player.

Following the instructions in the audio guides, you will be informed chronologically about the main historical events and development of the sites. You will also be guided through the buildings or areas in a specific order, allowing you to view all essential sights and to hear everything you need to know in order to have a complete and great travelling experience.

Europe Travel Destinations: Loch Ness

Europe has to offer countless historical and cultural travel destinations, but just a few of them combine historical views with tales of legendary creatures, just like the lake Loch Ness in Scotland does.

Tales of a monster living in the depths of the lake have been around since the 7-th century and ever since the legend of Nessie ( Niseag ) is alive and attracting thousands of myth-followers to the Loch Ness.

From using man watch with binoculars and cameras in the beginning of the 20-th century to sonar and submarine studies in recent times, the area of the Loch Ness lake has been a subject to numerous expeditions in search of the notorious monster. There have been some challenging evidences of presence of unexplained large objects in the lake, but much is left for the imagination. Probable proofs for the existence of Nessie in form of pictures, video and even sonar footage have been constantly questioned by scientists, and as Nessie is still skillfully avoiding being caught for ages, she has proven to be a worthy catch.

Up to date the existence of the monster has not yet been officially proven or denied categorically. However, existing or not, Nessie has become a legend, intriguing  people's imagination and attracting travellers and adventurers from all over the world.

If you like tales and legends visit the Loch Ness and take a stare into the water surface. Drink a beer at any of the local pubs and listen to the stories of the locals - even if you do not see Nessie, you will surely feel the spirit of the area and will enjoy an experience like no other.

Europe Travel Tips: Travel Insurance

When booking a holiday abroad one of the essential things in the "To Do List" is to buy a travel insurance policy.

Although any required medical treatment within your own country is covered by the contry`s national health security system, any type of international agreements for providing emergency medical treatment to foreign citizens is agreed only with public hospitals. As such public medical facilities are very often not very close to the holiday resorts, and even in the major European cities you are most likely to encounter private medical facilities, having a private travel insurance can ensure that you will receive in-time emergency medical treatment for any illness or injury.

The positives of having a private travel insurance poliy are:
- low price insurance, covering great variety of risks:
medical expenses
luggage loss
holiday cancellation
trip delay
loss of pocket money
- 24/H travel assistance by the insurance company for any insurance covered problem you might encounter
- cooperation between the medical service providers and the major travel insurance companies

Visitng a private medical center in case of a minor or major medical emergency, especially in the holiday resorts, almost certainly ensures that you will be treated by an English-speaking specialist, nomatter in which country you are at the moment. Private medical facilities are also often equipped with up-to-date medical equipment and can even provide visits in the hotel and medical transportation.

Even if you are asked to pay on spot for the received services, your travel insurance company will reimburse the amounts paid abroad, which makes the travel insurance policy a must-have for every traveller.

Your insurance company can also be in contact with your travel agent in order to ensure all available assistance in case of luggage and money loss, so you can still enjoy a great holiday abroad.

An annual travel insurance policy is a more cost- and time-efficient solution than the purchase of single trip insurance policies and usually guarantees you better risk coverage conditions.

The entrance to the Prater is free of charge as the attractions have independent prices. Opening time also varies depending the different attractions, but one of the great things about the Prater is that during the summer and autumn seasons it is wide open from 10 am to midnight.

One of the most recognizable symbols of the park and the city is the Viennese Giant Wheel ( Wiener Riesenrad ) and a ride-on is particularly nice in the evening, giving you wonderful view over the surroundings.

The Prater experience is a classic and nice feeling, as well as great family fun, and definitely one of the symbols of Europe.
