    No one ever said that travelling with children was easy (well, not anyone who has actually done it), and there are endless things to worry about while on a family holiday. However, taking care of a few things before you head out on your adventures can help minimize your work and hassle while abroad on your family holiday. Travel insurance, child friendly transport and appropriate accommodation can all be researched and booked before you go.

    This article offers a checklist of things to do before travelling abroad with your family.

    1. Book Family Holiday Travel Insurance

    Family holiday travel insurance package deals cover medical and property loss abroad and normally offers discounts over individual rates. These plans are usually quick and easy to purchase, and many can be researched and booked online.

    2. See your family doctor

    When travelling with your family outside of Europe, there might some vaccinations that you or your children will need to get before you go. In some cases, these vaccinations are necessary before you can even apply for a visa. You’ll also want to refill any prescription medications that you or your family need so you have enough to last the whole trip.

    3. Get family friendly transport

    If you’re thinking about hiring a car, reserve one large for your whole family and request whatever infant car seats, child booster seats, or other kid extras you might need ahead of time. Sometimes access to these things are limited, and having them reserved ahead of time will make it easier when you arrive.

    4. Scan your travel documents

    You’ll need to gather up all your family’s travel documents, scan them, and email them to yourself so that you an have electronic access to them at all times in case you need them. You should include all passports, ID cards, copies of your family holiday travel insurance, records of vaccination, doctor and emergency contact details.

    5. Make family friendly accommodation arrangements

    Before you book and pay for your accommodation, be sure that you’ll have access to the things you and your children need to make your stay more comfortable. This might include asking the hotel or resort to provide your room with playpens, cribs, strollers, or baby monitors. Some larger resorts even have child care services on site.

    6. Camera time!

    While on your trip you no doubt be making some amazing memories with your children. You’ll want to capture some of these special moments, and not having the correct camera equipment at hand could mean you may miss some. Be sure to pack extra batteries and memory cards and, if possible, try to get a waterproof case. That way you don’t have to worry about your camera falling in the hotel pool if little hands are playing with it.

Christmas remains one of the best times to plan your long haul overseas travel for a taste of festivities far away from home. However, booking of flights needs to be done well in advance so as those elusive cheap tickets do not slip out of grasp. However, quite a few airlines also offer some special Christmas deals. Here are some of the most popular Christmas destinations as revealed by online searches and other sources.

    Paris

    Paris, synonymous with fashion and glamour stays one of the hottest Christmas holiday destinations in the world ushers in the festival in its signature trendy style. Vanity shopping is as much a part of Christmas celebrations as is watching dazzling fireworks displays over a goblet of French wine. The Champs Elyses lights displays and Notre Dame Cathedral celebrations remain two of the biggest Christmas events in Paris.

    Las Vegas

    Everything in Las Vegas is larger than life and this rings true in the matter of Christmas celebrations as well. Every casino comes with terrific Christmas holiday ideas to make it an unforgettable night in Sin City. The Fremont Street Experience, Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden, Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, and those glitzy shopping malls are the hottest places of Las Vegas on Christmas Eve.

    New York

    Although, the Big Apple is bursting with infectious energy and charm throughout the year, somehow, the same increases ten folds during Christmas. The Rockefeller Center with its gargantuan Christmas tree and the skating rink lures hoards of tourists and locals alike. Shopping at Fifth Avenue seems to take on a new meaning altogether, while the Saint Patricks mass and carriage riding around Central Park linger on as endearing memories.

    Goa

    Those who wish to celebrate Christmas at some exotic overseas beach destination would do well to consider Goa. This Indian destination preserves rich chunks of its Portuguese heritage and is an excellent fusion of modern style and old world charm. Christmas here means endless culinary delights, especially sea food, night to dawn beach parties, and gallons of booze. There are numerous churches and cathedrals for those who do not want to miss out upon the religious side of Christmas. Very understandably, Goa is a premiere choice for many planning their Christmas holiday breaks.

    Bethlehem and Jerusalem

    Bethlehem and Jerusalem quite deservedly enjoy a special status as far as Christmas holiday tours are concerned. While 25th December marks the celebrations by Roman Catholics and Protestants, 6th January comes alive with the version celebrated by Greeks, Syrians, and other Orthodox Christians.

    If you hope to ever see any portion of The Mighty Death Pop! performed live over the next few months, you better buy your tickets to The Gathering now. Thats because, for the first time in Insane Clown Posse concert history, J and Dope wont be embarking on an ICP tour in support of The Mighty Death Pop! once its released. This is, understandably, a pretty tough pill for Juggalos nationwide to swallow.

    Anyone whos ever attended an Insane Clown Posse concert on any ICP tour or just a standalone Insane Clown Posse concert will tell you how euphoric they can be. In fact, if Insane Clown Posse concerts and ICP tours werent legendary, then The Gathering of the Juggalos would not be nearly as successful as it is. That being the case, why are J and Dope choosing The Mighty Death Pop! as the album that doesnt get any love from an ICP tour or Insane Clown Posse concerts?

    From an outsiders perspective, it looks like this no ICP Tour or Insane Clown Posse concert tactic is a product of timing, not the album being of inferior quality. Bruce and Utsler told Billboard magazine a few weeks ago that, by them not touring twice a year as theyve always done, theyll create more excitement for Insane Clown Posse concerts when they do return in a few years.

    Of course, this has enraged many Juggalos who cannot afford to make it to The Gathering or Hallowicked every year. One Juggalo even went as far as to say that ICP must think The Mighty Death Pop! sucks and they dont want to get stoned on stage. As you can see, this tactic is not very well supported by some in the Juggalo community.

    However, dont side with the premature Mighty Death Pop! haters so fast. Juggalo and Bruce have said that they want to spend this time not spent on ICP tours and Insane Clown Posse concerts instead on launching their Pay Per View series in which Juggalos around the world will be able to tune into their concerts online.

    So think about that for a minute if you knew that a brief hiatus from Insane Clown Posse concerts and ICP tours meant that youd be able to see them whenever you wanted without traveling a couple years down the road, would that soften the blow? Probably. Perhaps The Mighty Death Pop! will go down as history as the album that acted as a martyr for the future development of Insane Clown Posse concerts and ICP tours.

    After all, once you get past some qualities that make Insane Clown Posse concerts and ICP tours unforgettable, like the Faygo spray and Juggalettes, you might be able to retain a good amount of the experience from your living room and save money on travel!

    Next time you are thinking about setting off on your travels, why not choose to stay in a holiday cottage? In fact, this is what Snowdonia in North Wales specialises in. There are very many benefits that can be enjoyed by staying in a beautiful holiday cottage in Snowdonia as opposed to staying in a hotel room. Lets look at some of the benefits of choosing holiday cottages over hotel rooms

    1)The freedom in holiday cottages is simply amazing
    Staying in a holiday cottage as opposed to staying in a hotel is more satisfying and more relaxing than any stay in any hotel. This is because by staying in a holiday cottage, you are able to control your own schedule and do whatever you want whenever you want! It is not a breach of hotel regulations and it does not cause any harm to the facilities. You can have meals according to your schedule and are not limited to somebody elses timeframe.

    It is very easy to make your holiday cottage feel exactly like home. This is very hard to do with a hotel room that is invaded every now and then by room service and cleaning staff. Hotels have an air of unfamiliarity and coldness that is hard to disguise no matter the effort made by the staff and management. Holiday cottages feel warm and homely and nothing can deter you from feeling that the moment you step into one of them.

    With a holiday cottage in Snowdonia, you have the freedom to relax and take in the gorgeous North Walian scenery whilst enjoying the company of your friends and family, rather than having to endure being crammed into a hotel making pleasantries with other unfamiliar guests.

    2)Holiday cottages are very economical
    We are currently living in very harsh and chilling financial weather. This means everyone is having to watch the amount of money that leaves his or her pockets. Renting holiday cottages is much more economical compared to hotels as, firstly, most of them are generally self-catering, which means that you will cook and eat your own food. In the long run, you will end up spending less money than if you had checked into a hotel. Secondly, you are likely to rent the cottage with a number of friends and family which means that the cost will be split between a number of you.
