But, firstly, there are some things that you should take into consideration when you organise your first trip to Bulgaria. Here they are.

Things to consider when you travel to Bulgaria for the first time

Do not forget to take care of airport transfer. According to tourists, one of the most annoying things is arriving to the airport and finding out that you should wait a lot for a taxi. As mentioned before, because the number of people, who choose visiting Bulgaria, is constantly increasing every year, finding a vehicle to come and pick you up from the airport can be a real challenge. Things can be even more difficult, if you want to find a car to take you from Sofia to Sunny Beach. Therefore, try to look for a Sofia to Sunny Beach Transfer and make your reservation on time.

Moreover, you should also pack your things wisely. If you decide to go to Sunny Beach, do not forget your swimming suit and also the sunblock lotion which can protect you for burning your skin. When it comes to accommodation, it is better to ask for the services of travel agency.

Some things to know about Bulgaria:

Bulgaria is a top destination for tourists thanks to its beautiful beaches. Also, the affordable prices are the strength of this Balkan destination. Those who have tried this thing before claim that nothing is more beautiful than a day spend on the beach, a place where you can relax while you are enjoying the golden sand and the crystal clear water.

Traveling to Newcastle on a budget

Jan 03, 17 Traveling to Newcastle on a budget

 

England is an interesting destination having lots to offer tourists. You have history, culture, fine dinning, fashion and the list could go on forever. Because traveling means discovering the world, staying in 5 star hotels and looking down at the world from your balcony might not be the best of ideas. Traveling means discovering the world, seeing what regular people are like. In fact, if you think about it, budget trips are often the most rewarding ones. You don’t waste time thinking about where to eat, which fancy restaurant to choose and instead, you go right ahead and savour a meal right there on the street, looking towards Tyne Bridge.  So, if you are in for an experience, here are three ideas on how to plan a trip to Newcastle on a budget.

Finding cheap accommodation

You could search the dedicated market to see if you can find any cheap hotels. However, if all options are much above your budget, you could consider hostels. A traveling secret is looking at shared house student accommodation in Newcastle. If you have a friend that studies here, you could ask him or her to let you stay a few days. At the same time, students welcome tourists during the summer, when they are not at school. Try looking online to see if you can find such options worth considering.

Buy traveling passes

Traveling is about visiting, but in most cases, this part of you trip is often the most expensive. What you can do to save money is to buy traveling passes. These offer you the opportunity to visit a lot of touristic attractions, at lower prices. You can purchase a pass that is valid for a fixed number of days and in that time, you can visit a lot of attractions. Since you bought the pass before going on your trip, your budget will not be affected in any way.

Eating habits

If you think about it, you tend to waste a lot of money on food as well when traveling. Usually, travellers head out to the nearest restaurant when they are hungry, paying a lot in the end. What you could instead is take a trip to several supermarkets and do the grocery shopping. This way, you could be saving a lot of money. You could make sandwiches, heat up precooked meals if you have a microwave in your room and so on. You might even notice that if you are thirsty and decide to buy a bottle of water from the restaurant its price might be double than in the supermarket. The water, however, is the same.

Tips for a holiday in a sports camp

Dec 15, 16 Tips for a holiday in a sports camp

Living in times when it is so difficult to keep fit especially for children, who are surrounded by so many temptations, a sport camp or sport centre is exactly what you should definitely consider. Not to mention the fact that in Australia there are places which are dedicated to both kids and adults. But, before packing your things and going to such place, read our list with useful tips.

 

 

Useful tips for luggage and accommodation:

 

  • Choose your location wisely. As it was said before, there are many places, but our top recommendation is Gold Coast. This is the favourite choice of those who are interested in finding one of the best medicine clinics too. The clinic is dedicated to general public and people can receive the same services as athletes from the elite class. Moreover, last year the sport centre from this location was visited by more 8000 students.
  • Accommodation can highly influence your mood. This means that if you are not careful, you can choose something which does not raise you expectations. But do not worry! There is a solution: try Gold Coast Group Accommodation, a place where you can benefit from the best and forget about those locations where you should bring your own linen.
  • Good quality sport clothes. Choose some which let your skin “breathe”. Those which are made by synthetic fabrics can cause you allergies or make you feel uncomfortable while you are doing your sport activities. Moreover, bear in mind the fact that your sport shoes can affect your legs if they are not good enough.
  • Lotion for protection against sun. Due to the fact that the majority of activities are done outside, you would need some lotion which helps you not getting burnt.

Benefits of a sport camp:

 

Losing weight. This is the main reason why people decide to join a sport camp. But the main difference is that they not only get rid of kilos, but also they do that in a fun way. Or even if weight is not a problem for you, you can choose to join a sport camp for keeping fit.

 

Feeling better. Sport activities not only help you looking good, but also they prove a good way of improving your mood. For example, if you have been through a depressive period because of all of your problems, you can get rid of it by doing sport. Sport is also an alternative for stress. Therefore, when you feel that it is too much for you to handle, you can take a week off and go to a sport centre.

 

Socialising. What is more, you can consider a sport centre or a camp as a place where you take your friends or family and you can have a lot of fun by doing physical activities. On the other hand, if you cannot find good companion, you can go on your own and find there some persons to socialise with. Maybe you can build some strong relations or you can just spend your time.
