London's Hidden Gems

London might be one of the most famous cities in all the world, but that doesn’t mean you know every single one of its top spots.

While there are some tourist attractions that even those who haven’t ever visited London will know of (think the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace etc), there are a number of highly interesting places that most tourists won’t ever think about visiting.

Assuming that you’re thinking of visiting London in the near future and want to think outside the box a little, let’s have a look at some lesser known attractions that might float your boat.

First off, how about the Horniman Museum and Gardens? Situated in South London’s Forest Hill, this fantastic attraction is full of exhibits that are sure to prove a hit with all members of the family. It’s got everything from an aquarium and a stuffed walrus to instruments dating back several hundred years, and best of all it’s free! You can’t ask for much more than that for an educational day out.

If you’re looking for somewhere you can just switch off and enjoy your surroundings however, then head to Primrose Hill, on the north side of Regent’s Park. Offering perhaps the best view of central London you can get in a relatively quiet environment, it’s one of the best places to escape the hustle and bustle of London and enjoy some relaxation time!

Temple Church is one of London’s most famous sights, yet it doesn’t receive nearly as many visitors as it really should. Built by the Knights Templar in the 12th Century, and featured in Dan Brown’s novel the Da Vinci Code and its big screen adaptation, it was built to resemble Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and as such is truly a sight to take in.

Another reminder of London’s past is the Brixton Windmill. Looking rather out of place in such a modern city, the Windmill stands as a reminder of London’s pastoral heritage, and is a great attraction to visit. It’s only open at weekends between April and October though, so depending on when you’re visiting you might not be able to take it in.

Finally, anyone with an interest in the arts should take in the Dulwich Picture Gallery. When it was designed by Sir John Soane in 1817 it was England’s first purpose-built public art gallery, however nowadays it’s often sadly overlooked in favour of attractions like the National Gallery and Tate Modern. Quite why more people don’t visit it is a mystery though – it features paintings by the likes of Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck as well as several differing exhibitions throughout the year, and there are plenty of cheap hotels in the area.

There’s no denying that London is one of the world’s greatest cities, and any visit there is sure to delight. If you really want to have one up on the millions of visitors to the city every year, take in one of the above as well as the usual tourist fare. You’ll be glad you did!

My Taxi Travel Tips

Tips on Tipping a Cab 

Cabs or Taxis are the frequently used transportation of the tourists. Most tourists don’t know how to give tips on cabs that are adequate and with etiquette. Here are some few things to remember when giving tips on cab drivers. Always remember that when giving tips, it should be out of your willingness and know the timing, it might sound insulting to the driver if you don’t have the right timing.

Discussing the fare before riding would save you from a lot of annoying argument with the driver. Take time to ask for questions of how long will the ride be and how much will it cost you. Remember, not all cab drivers have good intentions.

Always secure you have enough cash on hand. It’s embarrassing to have a free ride with a cab. You’re supposed to treat the driver not the driver treating you, you’re the tourist remember that. The tip must be at least 10% of your fare. A little sign of gratitude of keeping you safe until you arrive on your destination.

You could always go beyond that 10% if you don’t mind being more generous. Being new to the place, your driver could give you a little tour in Malpais and some reminders for your safety plus, he gets to carry your bags.

Giving tips is not required but you’re a tourist, be generous. Tips could add to the salary of the driver. It won’t empty your pocket if you give some.

Giving tips with the fare would cause you less effort to look for smaller bills on your pocket. Always have small bills with you so you won’t have to ask for a change. Hey, it’s a tip and asking for a change is so embarrassing.

Informing the driver to “keep the change” would leave a smile on his face plus, he won’t have to count how much your change will be.  You can also get the change first then give some tips for the driver.

The Tipping Tips While in Holiday Traveling

Tipping Tips

Have you ever given a tip? Did you know that there are certain things that you should consider when giving a tip? The tip that you might be giving is below the recommended amount.

Here are the things that you should consider when giving a tip.

Know the tipping policy

Knowing the tipping policy of the establishment that you are in is important. Tipping is seen differently in every country like Santa Teresa and Malpais Costa Rica. Some appreciates it and others might get offended. Tipping could also give special treatment of other customers that is why there are establishments with no-tipping policy. Of course, if you are the employee, you will choose customers who give tips rather than those who do not. You do not want to be reprimanded by the management for giving a tip, don’t you?

Determine the “tippable” amount

Tipping is not just an ordinary gesture of saying thank you. Determining the tippable amount could give you a suggestion of how much you should give for the tip. The amount that you should give as a tip should be reasonable and appropriate with your expenditures.

Evaluate the Service

If you are not satisfied with the service, you don’t have to give a tip. You’ll be wasting your money in that case. Give tips to those who deserve to have it and only give if you are willing to give. If you don’t want to give, remember, you are not required to give tips.

Calculate the tip

Tips that should be given should be 10%-20% of your total expenditures. This might be your first time to come across this information but this is the recommended amount for tipping. The percentage varies on the service and personnel that you are tipping. Example, restaurant tipping percentage is different from hotels and taxis.

Give the exact amount

Not giving tips at all is better than giving tips and asking for a change. It could be the worst thing that you will do. Always have small bills or coins with you whenever you want to give tips. You don’t want to be mortified because of the tips, don’t you?

Texas Travel Tips

Travel Tips
Texas has many different places that a tourist would love to go to. You may travel using different transportation  What really matters is that you enjoy your journey towards the location that you would like to visit. Here are some pros and cons on the type of transportation that you could use.

Tourists can have car rentals. You may go wherever you want to go but you should know the traffic rules and the area particularly. You don’t want to waste your time looking for the right direction I bet. So whenever you choose renting a car, have a map or GPS just in case you get lost in your driving.

Trains are best to travel with if you seek adventure or do not like congested roads. The thing is, when you reach your stop, do you really know where you are going. Only some people enjoy adventure during travelling with trains because the chance of getting lost in the middle of the city is high. You know what, adventure starts when you get lost in a large city, actually.

Busses are great for sightseeing. Aside from getting a free tour in the city, you get to mingle with the natives. They are cheap transportation but you should be aware of the bus stops. Be sure that your stop is on their route. You don’t want to walk on your own towards the location that you want to visit, don’t you?

It’s like a private ride. You’re lucky if you get the driver to tour you around the locations that you wanted to visit but this transportation would cost you a lot. Aside from the meter, you should give tip to the driver for touring you around.

People would like to travel from one place to another by plane. Aside from saving time, it’s more convenient than driving a very long road, not mentioning the drive during the night and stopovers in a motel and gasoline stations. But having planes, you would miss the scenic views along the road.

Six Ways To Save on Your Hotel Tips

Cheaper Hotel Tips

Travelers are always looking for hotels that are cheaper without thinking of the comfort that they could get in return of a low price. Hotels that offers rooms for a cheaper price would tend to sacrifice the comfort of their customers. The truth is that you could still get the comfort that you need without paying much.


Hotels usually vary in price depending on its location. Hotels that are less accessible usually have lower rates compared to those that are highly accessible. You would have to choose between price and convenience in that case. You could choose less accessible hotels for lower price if you are already familiar with the area but if you are new, try to have a more accessible hotel; you don’t want to waste your time looking for the right way towards your hotel, right?


Hotel rates during peak seasons usually escalate. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on your hotel, have your vacation during regular days. Tourist spots are still the same on both seasons anyways. You can also have your reservations before the peak season; they always give discounts for early reservations.

Facilities and Services

If you don’t need the extravagance, you don’t have to choose to stay on expensive hotels (except if your stay is sponsored). Whenever you stay in a hotel, you are also paying for the facilities and services provided. If you are just a regular traveler that is not looking for particular facilities and services, it’s better to choose hotels that don’t offer such.


Always ask the front desk personnel on how to get lower price rooms. They always know how and when to have rooms with lower rates. Why not befriend the personnel; they could always give you the best advice and you might avail special promos and discounted prices.

Online Search

We live in the modern world so, internet is very accessible. Try to look over the internet. You might find a complete service and facilities in a low price. Check for the location and compare the rates. User feedback could also help you decide which hotel you will choose. You don’t want to stay in a hotel with bedbugs, don’t you?

Travel Agencies

Travel agencies have contacts with certain hotels. They could give you a place to stay for a discounted price. Always grab the opportunity if it means spending less.

Top Five Airport Travel Tips

Have you ever wondered why some people are just so calm on the airport while you are ridiculously cramming? The answer is that they are just prepared for the trip and glitches were avoided. How?

 Just read the following Airport Travel Tips

Pricey tickets

Schedule your trip ahead of time and choose the days that people are so busy for work that they have no time for vacation. You know that people would tend to get a trip during Fridays and Sundays.  Patterned trips of people was analyzed by the airlines and plane tickets would tend to have a price hike while plane tickets on weekdays such as Tuesday to Thursdays get the lowest price mostly.

People would likely to arrive on the airport 30 minutes before the flight because of traffic. The thing is some airlines choose to depart early than to have delayed flights. Why don’t you try to pack up a little more early and try not to miss your flight? Re-booking a flight would cost you more.

Extra baggage fees

Did you ever experienced having the greatest discount of your life but cost you more on the baggage fees? You tend to bring only a hand-carried bag but actually, this costs a little more pennies than checked in baggage. If ever you decide on what airline will you take or what discounted tickets will you buy, think of your baggage. Some airlines would charge fees for both hand-carried bags and checked in baggage. Choose the ones that do not have extra charges on hand-carried bags.

Luring announcements

How come that a plane experiences mechanical problems? Last minute passengers are always present so, airlines would tend to announce delays. You as a passenger would also tend to go somewhere else because you don’t want to just sit and wait. The thing is you might miss your flight because the plane was fixed earlier than the estimated time.

First flights

You know that first flights would likely to be delayed and to think that they have the cheapest plane tickets, you should have foreseen it. It’s not worth it to get angry on your delayed flight. Hey, you still got a discounted flight.

Travel Tips WHAT NOT TO DO

Travel Tips Don'ts

People would always think of “things to do” when packing up, travelling, and choosing their trips. They might not miss anything on their luggage or their entire trip but their most awaited vacation could be ruined when they mess on simple things. Here are some things that you shouldn't do when travelling.

Week end holiday trips

When holidays fall on weekends, people would work late and go back early. This would make the airports congested and you should expect delays. Whenever possible try to book your flights on weekdays and not on weekends because this will save you from congested ports and traffic. Do not add up to the congestion of ports and streets.

Don’t pack your entire house

You don’t have to pack all the stuff in your closet. This will cost you more paying for the baggage fees. Just bring the things that you need. You don’t want to spend $25-$50 for your excess baggage. Whenever you’re short of clothes, you could always wash them.

Don’t get drunk and travel
If hangover strikes you, you will most likely to throw up than not when travelling. This happens mostly when having your trip towards home. People would likely to enjoy their last night of vacation with some alcoholic beverages. Things turn bad when you have too much of it. Worst is, if you will miss your flight because you over slept. Better to have the drinking session days before departure and not the night before.

Don’t assume empty parking lots on ports

Parking lots are filled faster during holidays. You may tend to drive around the parking lot for a couple of times to find a space. This would take some of your time so you should be early for your trip.

Don’t book your trip on the last minute

Last minute booking of trip during holidays would cost you a lot. Book your trip earlier so that you could avail discounts and assure that a seat is reserved for you. Flights could be fully booked by the time you’re about to have a late booking.

Don’t assume perfection on your entire trip

Glitches always happen. From the lost luggage, delayed flights, and traffic towards your most awaited vacation. During holidays, congested ports and streets are to be expected. People would try to enjoy their vacation but things could not always go with what’s on their head. These things could ruin your entire vacation so it’s best not to expect that your trip will go the way you wanted it to be.

Space Shuttle Endeavour Travels for The Last Time

Space Shuttle Endeavour flew 25 times outside the Earth's Orbit  and now it will travel for the last time to Los Angeles, just  like an expat ready to retire in Santa Teresa Malpais Beach Costa Rica but will be house in a museum in California.

After a dramatic parade in California, the workers began removing it from the 747 jumbo jet and to be transferred to a trailer going to the Science Center.

The road trip that begun in October was welcome by protest due to the  cut down of 400 to give way to the 70 lb ton, 50 ft high shuttle with wingspan of 78 feet. The 400 trees will be soon will replaced with 1000 trees by the Science Center.

With all the problems that the Space Shuttle Endeavour travel has encountered, last Friday the citizen came out and receive a heroes welcome.

The people everywhere welcome the Endeavour, from the outside of the capitol to the golden gate bridge and up to the Hollywood sign.

Space Shuttle Endeavour famously known as "baby shuttle" replaced the Challenger when it burst in to flames in 1986, which killed seven astronauts. 

Space Shuttle Endeavour had 25 flight missions and 12 of those flights are for the repair of the space station. Endeavour travelled 123 million miles (198 million km) in distance and has reached 4,671 orbits.

After a momentous tour, the Endeavour touchdown in the Los Angeles Airport (LAX). You can still catch the Endeavour in the LAX until Oct 30 and will be permanently house on the California Science Center.

The transportation cost was about 28 Million dollars which will be shouldered by the Science Center.

Five Money Saving in Your Trip

1. Inquire on Travel Agencies

Whenever discounts are offered online, travel agencies should have the same rate because cruise lines are maintaining their rates strictly. There would be no additional fee to be added because travel agencies already have a commission on the cruise lines itself. These agencies could also help you on choosing which cruise line suits your taste.

2. Search for Promo Tickets

Promo tickets are advertised online any time of the week. Most people think that they are usually available on Tuesday s and Wednesday s only, it’s actually wrong. If clients only search for certain days, they could miss the tickets that have the lowest price on the internet as advertisements could pop at any time, any day of the week and they don’t last long.

3. Early Flight, Less Fare

There are days in the week that airports get less crowded compared to other days; usually, during Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. First flights on these days have a less incidence of delays and could offer you lower prices.

4. Check in as Early as Possible

Early check in can be done from home or on your mobile phone if you have internet connection. Seats are limited on every plane. Though there are only rare incidences, this could still happen to you. Early check in gives you an assurance that you have a reserved seat on your flight.

5. Hotel Discounts

Each Malpais hotel has different policies on their reservation and cancelation of bookings. There are “money back” hotels and there are Santa Teresa hotels that give discount on their clients who pays in advance. Always inquire for the policies of the Costa Rica hotel that you choose with regard to this matter.

Taxi Travel Tips for your Costa Rica Holiday

Vacationers and travelers who will be on holiday on Malpais and Santa Teresa Costa Rica and will be riding those abundant red taxis service frequently that there is a recent fair increase.

Five colones additional charges for a taxi ride for the first kilometer of your travel. This is about $0.01 US dollars but if you continue to increase those mileages then this can become a substantial amount.

The recent fare hike from ¢ 585 to ¢ 590 was approved by the Regulatory Authority of Public Services (Aresep).

This increase is about 0.78% for those regular Red Fleet taxis and those Taxis that get costumers from Juan Santamaria International Airport have a lesser increase of 0.64%.

The resetting of taxi meters began on February and August each year. The calculation of the fare increase includes the driver’s wages, average fuel price and exchange rates.

All tourist as well as taxi riding public must always pay what is indicated on the meters because Local transportation agencies like(Aresep)  make sure that these Taxi meters are tamper proof and is working accurately.

There are no additional charges for tourist travelling at night but it is always safer to travel during day. Make sure to report the drivers for abuse and overcharging.

When entering the taxi make sure to check on your driver and always check if the meter has been reset or started. Unscrupulous drivers will try to scam you by intentionally forgetting to turn the meter on and will just try to estimate your fare when you arrived at your destination.

Always keep an eye on the meter and never ride a taxi with a faulty meter or a suspicious looking driver. Try to list the plate number of the taxi when you are travelling or try to text it to your friends. It will always come in handy when you forgot something like your passport or iPhone 5.

If you like the service of the driver and the taxi operator, you can always ask for their card or contact number for the next ride. Try to call them if they can be available for that time and location in your hotel in Malpais.

Eight Important Green Travelling Ideas

Eco-friendly travellers are what we should be. 

Here are travel strategies that we could employ to be a more environmental friendly traveller.

Travel as Light as Possible

When you carry light luggage’s, you would carry less weight and won’t have to use fuel for transporting those from time to time. As we know, carbon is emitted when fuel is burned and the result is air pollution.

Research Your Destination

Tourist spots would always impost rules and regulation to conserve the beauty of the sceneries. You could always check on the internet for the background of the place before travelling. Doing this would make you save money for fines and help conserving the environment. Also, choose hotels that go “green”. Check on the state department website which hotel is more earth friendly.

Use Public Transport

Carbon emissions would lessen if you travel with bus or trolleys from your hotel to restaurants, airports, malls, museums, and other attractions. This would make you enjoy the place more and see what is it to be a resident of the place that you are visiting.

Recycle Your Consumables

Hotel toiletries such as towels and sheets could be reused every day in a week. They don’t have to be sent to laundry daily. Room service is not necessary for this situation and this would help in conserving water. Shampoo bottles can be refilled and you won’t have to use the one that the hotel provided you which usually come in sachet – non-environment friendly. Water bottles can also be reused and make you save some money.

Energy Conservation

Turning off the light, air cons/heaters and other appliances in the place that you are staying would save a lot of energy. Though you are paying the electricity for the entire day, you should think that you should help in conserving the energy plus fire could emerge from overheated appliances.

Shop Sustainably

Buying local goods is helping the economy of the place that you are visiting – the least that you can do. When you buy local goods, imports are limited and this would mean saving fuel and less air pollution.

Fuel Efficient Transportation

Car rentals could save a couple of minutes to an hour in travelling in Texas. When you rent a car, be sure that the tires are inflated properly and must be fuel efficient. Also direct flights when travelling on plane would not only make you reach your destination faster but could also save fuel. Remember, less fuel consumption, less carbon emissions, less air pollution.

Use Green Technology

New inventions that are environment friendly are presented worldwide. Take time to see these inventions. Though it may cost you more, when you patronize these new inventions, you are helping the environment.
