The Importance of Making a Good Travel Brochure

Okay, let’s start from the beginning. Making a good travel brochure can do wonders for your readers, and it can even turn them into potential world travelers. Wondering why would anyone even bother making a travel brochure? Well, the answer is pretty simple! A well written travel brochure casts your readers into a story that takes place in some sort of an exotic locale. Of course, the exotic locale that we are talking about here is actually the travel destination that you are writing about throughout the whole travel brochure. In order to make your audience consider booking your travel package, the first thing that you need to do is design a good travel brochure.

Before you actually start designing your travel brochure, you first need to determine what place you are going to write about. If you work for some sort of travel company, it is up to your boss to decide what you are going to write about in your travel brochure. But if you are a student, or if you are a freelancer who would just like to create some sort of a mock-up travel brochure for your portfolio, you should choose some sort of exotic location that people will actually want to visit.

The Price of Your Travel Package
When it comes to designing a travel brochure, determining the price of your travel package is one of the most important things that you need to do. Don’t go too high, but don’t go too low either. What you need to do is set a reasonable price for your travel package. Don’t scare your potential customers away by setting an inappropriate price for your travel package. If you work for a travel agency, you don’t need to worry about this step too much, because you boss will probably set the price instead of you.

Do Your Research
Make sure to do a some research on your destination of choice. You don’t want write a whole lot of good things about that place, and then leave your customers disappointed, do you? We are living in the age of technology. Doing research has never been easier!

Talk To Someone Who Has Already Been There
Try to get in touch with someone who has already visited your destination of choice before. This is always a good thing to do because they can give you a whole lot of information regarding that place. Just try to find someone who is trustworthy.

How To Plan a Successful Road Trip

Although the process of researching and planning a road trip can be pretty fun, it can also be quite overwhelming for some people. But it doesn’t have to be this way at all. A lot of the employees at Albatross Roofing love planning road trips with the team and their families as it really helps with team bonding.

While the dreaming stages can really get out of hand sometimes, there are some things that you can do to make the whole process that much easier. You need to start from somewhere, and the best place to start from in this particular scenario is your mind – your initial thoughts. What does this mean? This means that the first thing that you need to do is make some basic decisions. For example, you need to determine whether you want to go on a cultural journey through Japan or on a week-long vacation in Australia. You get the idea!

Another thing that can be very helpful here is to have an idea of when you would like to go on that trip. Come up with some sort of a travel plan. Write down a few keywords that will help you throughout the research process. And if you are going to take someone with you, make sure that you and your travel buddy are on the same page. After all, you are going there to relax, not to stress out even more, right?

Brainstorming
Brainstorming is one of the wildest parts of the planning process. This is because it is actually the process of collecting ideas. Today, it is very easy to find good ideas, and the reason why it is so easy is because ideas are all around us. In fact, finding a good idea is as easy as spending an hour online. It is completely up to you to decide how you want to do it. However, don’t let this stage last more than a few days.

Available Days
Fitting travel into a busy schedule can be a pretty hard thing to do. That being said, you need to know how days you have to work with, as well as how you want to spend those days. This largely depends on your current job, as well as your current financial situation.

Transportation
Are you sure that you can actually get to all the places that you want to visit? Make sure to do all the necessary research before hitting the road. You don’t want to find yourself in any uncomfortable situations, do you?

How To Deal With the Traveler’s Diarrhea

One of the most common illnesses that travelers from all over the world experience is the traveler’s diarrhea. There is about 10 million cases of traveler’s diarrhea recorded every year. Did you know that an astonishing number of about 55 percent of travelers from all over the world experience this nasty illness? Yes, you read that right! Destination plays a very important role in all this. The traveler’s diarrhea usually occurs when people travel from well developed countries to the not so developed ones. It also occurs when people get exposed to the microbes in food that they are not used to.

While traveler’s diarrhea is not really life threatening, it can still turn your amazing trip into a nightmare. That being said, knowing what to do and when to do it can be very helpful when it comes to getting rid of the traveler’s diarrhea. And now, here are some things that you can do to protect your body from this nasty illness!

Don’t Drink Water That Has Not Been Sterilized
Well water and tap water are not treated in developed countries the same way that they are treated in not so developed countries. What this means is that both well water and tap water usually contain microbes that can cause diarrhea. With that said, instead of drinking tap or well water, what you need to do is stick to bottled water. And if you don’t have any other choice but to drink tap water, then at least sterilize the water before drinking it. You can do this by boiling the water for at least three minutes.

Avoid Food From Street Vendors
Eating food from street vendors is one of the biggest reasons why so many people suffer from traveler’s diarrhea. While you probably want to experience the local cuisine each time you travel, you should approach food from street vendors with caution.

Wash Your Hands
Washing your hands is one of the easiest, yet most effective ways to avoid the traveler’s diarrhea. This is especially true if you enjoy traveling with your children. Also, you should keep some sort of a hand-sanitizing solution in your backpack at all times – just in case you need it.

5 Enigmatic Sites On The Ocean Floor

The ocean is so wide that it covers almost 71% of the Earth. Unlike the land where you can easily make a map based on geographical landmarks, the ocean, on the other hand, is so unpredictable, making it hard to familiarize exact locations underwater. There are still a vast part of the ocean that is yet to be discovered, making it a place of mystery. But every now and then, people discover something new and dive-worthy on the ocean floor, and here are 5 most enigmatic sites on the ocean floor.

 

YONAGUNI MONUMENT, JAPAN. This 3000-year old monument wasn’t discovered until 1987 and the most baffling part is, nobody knows why it’s there and who built it. It looks too manmade to be a natural formation, others say it’s the works of creatures from outer space, but a professor from Japan said it might be a part of the lost Mu continent of the Pacific.

LOST CITY OF HERAKLION, EGYPT. After being underwater for almost a thousand years, the lost City of Heracleion was discovered in the early 2000’s. A group of divers were astounded when they saw a large statue protruding from the seabed; and upon more exploration they found ruins of temples, more statues and other treasure troves in the area. Thonis-Heracleion was almost part of a distant memory because only a few ancient inscriptions mentioned it, but thanks to the discovery, this once glorious city can now be explored.

 

PORT ROYAL, JAMAICA. This notorious city known as the “Wickedest City on Earth” stood true to its moniker. Port Royal was home to pirates, prostitutes and all the infamous people, with brothels, pubs and bars available for these “wicked” people. Due to a strong earthquake, this pirate’s haven sank in to the bottom of the sea along with all its sinful occupants.

 

BIMINI ROAD, BAHAMAS. A vaguely natural rock formation gives rise to speculations that it was once part of an ancient city. This 0.8 kilometer pavement consists of rectangular and sub-rectangular limestone blocks, looking more like a road or a wall. Researchers insist that these rocks are just a result of a natural and systematic fracturing of sedimentary rocks making the stones look almost the same.

 

ORDA CAVE, RUSSIA. Orda cave is said to be the longest cave on Earth that’s made of gypsum. Because of the minerals in the area called selenite, the water underneath is really clear, giving divers a very good visibility to explore the 5-kilometer passage. The cave’s white interior walls and cathedral-like corridors and the clear waters attracts cave divers to this underwater beauty.
