Travel agents are indispensable resources for planning complicated trips, finding out the ins and outs of a destination, saving time, preventing travel headaches and getting the best value. Earlier, if we wanted to visit some place, within our own country or some foreign country, we needed to do lot of research for a long time, may be for days, to know which roads to take, where to stay etc. Nepal, as with many other countries and certainly some places here in the U.S. are known for having a pick-pocket here and there, so using a travel belt is always a good idea, especially in the cities. I’ve used mine on travel insurance a number of trips, regardless of the chance of being robbed. The belt is great because I always knows where these important items are, keeps them close at hand and prevents me from dropping or misplacing them. Set on the largest offshore island in Newfoundland and Labrador, the 29-room Fogo Island Inn was designed by Newfoundland-born architect Todd Saunders, who festooned the property with objects from the area’s fishing communities and craftspeople, handcrafted quilts, and wood-burning stoves. The views of the rocky coast — through floor-to-ceiling windows — are as dramatically beautiful as you’d imagine.

It is becoming more common for people to take “working vacations,” in which they split their time between work and play. Unlike a business trip, this sort of travel still incorporates many aspects of leisure travel. A number of tour agencies have begun offering “volunteer vacations,” which combine aspects of the leisure travel lifestyle with volunteering one’s time to an organization in need. This type of traveling allows vacationers to enjoy the beauty of a new place while giving something back to it. Research your destination. You should find out what health and safety precautions to take. What is the political climate? Are there environmental dangers? What is the best season for your adventure vacation? Off seasons are great for pricing deals but may not be the best time for an adventure trip. For example planning a rafting trip when the waters are dangerously high.
