Miami International Airport: the Parking Crisis

Miami International Airport: the Parking Crisis

Miami International Airport is Miami’s most important source of revenue. It generates billions of dollars every year by catering to the needs of millions of travelers.

Being that MIA is one of the busiest airports in the world, the fact that they are expanding shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The plan is to spend the next five – fifteen years carrying out renovations that will make the airport leaner, more efficient to travel through.

The city’s aim is to prepare the airport for a time when MIA will contend with over 70 million travelers and four million tons of freight, numbers they could achieve as early as 2040.

But it appears that they haven’t dedicated much of their redevelopment plans to airport parking.

3 Things to Incorporate into Every Croatia Trip

Once upon a time, Croatia was on very few people’s radars. Now, it would be fair to say that the jewel of the Adriatic is well and truly grabbing headlines when it comes to travel – and for all the right reasons.

Tourism to Croatia is booming, though it isn’t very surprising that Croatia travel guides are flying off the shelves; this is a country home to more than 1,000 islands, all with amazing beaches, historic ruins, and Game of Thrones style medieval scenery.

Of course, connecting them all is the dazzling sapphire water of the Adriatic Sea; so mezermizing that it ‘sparkles with a jewel-like intensity’.

Croatia is a real treat for history buffs and nature lovers, but rather than focus on individual attractions the country has to offer, this article will look at three areas that the country really excels.

Hidden Secrets of Florence: Things to Do That Most Tourists Don’t Know About!

For a city that receives around 10 million tourists annually, you would think that Florence no longer holds any secrets. But this isn’t actually true.

While it’s no doubt difficult for travelers to find hidden gems that are off the main tourist trail, there are a few places and attractions where you can find a bit of respite from the crowds.

Overcrowding of Florence’s main attractions is not something you can avoid these days, especially during peak season (April to October). Tourist numbers at this time of year can easily outnumber the local resident population.

While the key highlights of Florence are not to be missed, you may wish to explore beyond the guidebooks in order to really dive beneath the surface of what this exceptionally beautiful city has to offer.

So, after an obligatory visit to Galleria dell’Accademia to view Michelangelo’s David, and the fine art of the Uffizi, take some time to blaze your own trail by checking out these often overlooked sights, these secrets of Florence.

5 Types of Travelers Who Visit Samoa – Is This You?

In recent years, rumors have begun to spread about the existence of a small Polynesian nation in the South Pacific Ocean; a series of nine islands that lie halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii.

Though how do you know if Samoa is a country for you?

5 Reasons to Visit Samoa (Because You DESERVE a Tropical Break!)

Craving a tropical vacation? There’s plenty of choice in the Pacific Ocean. From Fiji, to the Cook Islands, Tonga, and New Caledonia, there’s plenty of paradise to go around, and you’re well and truly spoiled for choice with the Pacific Islands.

But while visitors flood into Fiji, and fantasize about ancient Moai on Easter Island, there’s a small nation in the heart of Polynesia which might just be the Pacific’s best kept secret.

Bursting at the seams with intense natural beauty, and with a distinct lack of mega-resorts and superficial attractions, Samoa is an undeveloped tropical paradise, and one of the most authentic Pacific societies.

Instead of nightlife in Samoa, you’ll go to bed early, to wake up with the sun. You’ll snorkel with sea turtles before breakfast, trek through lush rainforests before lunch, discover volcanic sinkholes, and spend lazy afternoons in locally owned beach huts, sipping directly from fresh coconuts.

Not yet convinced? Between thundering waterfalls, white sand beaches, and an ancient culture, the following are 5 reasons to visit Samoa; you’ll be completely bewitched!

Stay in Traditional Khmer Bungalows Near Angkor Wat; This is Siem Reap’s Most Authentic Hotel

Stay in Traditional Khmer Bungalows Near Angkor Wat; This is Siem Reap’s Most Authentic Hotel

I genuinely believe that accommodation should be an experience. A culturally immersive and authentic affair, that transcends the idea of being just a place to rest your head.

In Mongolia, that means staying in yurts (portable, round tents covered in skins and felt, still used by Mongolian nomads); in Tunisia, an ancient cave house. From reed houses in South America, to igloos in Scandinavia, and turf houses in Iceland, traditional living has never been cookie cutter.

So why should our hotels?

Hotels in Siem Reap are ridiculously cheap. But I wasn’t looking for something forgettable this time around. I had traveled more than 5,000 miles to immerse myself in ancient temples of the Khmer Empire, and I didn’t want to shatter the experience by returning each night to a bland, generic hotel.

But where do you search for authentic accommodation? Through Glamping Hub we found an eco lodge with Unique Bungalows near Angkor Wat Temple, Cambodia, luxuriously refurbished inside, with perfectly preserved architectural heritage on the out.

We would stay in a traditional Khmer stilt house.

How to get to Siem Reap (and Angkor Wat)

How to get to Siem Reap (and Angkor Wat)

There’s a certain magic about Siem Reap; as the gateway to Angkor Wat, this small, compact tourist town is where modern and ancient worlds collide.

Cosmopolitan cafes and modern markets form the epicenter of chic Cambodia, though a short tuk-tuk ride and you’ve stepped back in time.

Siem Reap was built around an empire of ancient temples, and from those reclaimed by the roots of enormous banyan trees, to complexes that were once the royal capital city of the Khmer empire, the city of Siem Reap is an incredible base for authentic adventure.

There’s plenty to do in Siem Reap beyond the temples of course; from the Cambodian circus, to Buddhist monasteries, and back country adventures to explore rural villages fringed by endless rice paddies, swaying sugar palms, and water buffaloes.

But before you focus on things to do (and you won’t be short of things to do!), the first thing to figure out is how to get there; by plane, bus, or boat.

The 5 Best Historical Sites To See In Egypt

Egypt is a country unlike any other. It’s true that all great historic nations are rich in culture and architecture, but none can match Egypt for how the past and the present blend together today.

While many famed historic sites in countries such as Italy, Greece, or Mexico, sit in ruin and require imagination, in Egypt, temples, pyramids and sculptures all stand tall and complete, surrounded by modern cities as if they were still in everyday use.

Because there’s so much to see in Egypt, it’s difficult to know where to start! So we’ve put together an overview of the most important sites, so you know what to prioritize.

That’s why we’ve put this short treasure hunter’s guide together for you; the treasures of Egypt are something that every traveler should see with their own eyes at least once in their lives.
