    Take a Trip Through Hawaiian History in Pauko Preserve 

    One of the most exciting places to go for a family vacation is the  Big Island in Hawaii. Unlike the other islands of Hawaii, the Big Island, as it is known, is not famous for its white, sandy beaches, but more for its rocky coastline and wealth of volcanoes. The volcanoes are so plentiful that many choose to visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where families can get up close and personal.

    For Hawaii family vacations, it’s best to always have a bit of an itinerary planned beforehand. Some places you want to visit on your travels require advance reservations, and some activities may even be out of season when you come. One of the most interesting places on the island of Hawaii is the Puako petroglyph preserve. Access is allowed to roughly 1,200 petroglyphs, including dancers, sails, deity symbols, and other interesting imagery.

    You may be asking, what is a petroglyph? A petroglyph is essentially a carved image in stone, and the ones available for visitors to see on the Big Island date back to the 16th century, which is only one century after Columbus discovered America. This incredible preserve is ideal for families with older children and teenagers, but everyone will enjoy this park.

    It is important to remember that these stones are volcanic rocks, however, and the later in the day you go, the warmer the stones are. This is a great place to visit early in the day but no matter the time it’s always important to wear sunscreen and bring lots of water. While areas like this are widely open to the public, there are not a lot of resources once you get out on the land.

    The Royal Kona Resort always ensures guests have plenty of things to do for Hawaii family vacations. Book your next family vacation or excursion at the Royal Kona Resort, and stop by our friendly activities desk to plan your day. On the Big Island, you will take home memories that last a lifetime.

    See the Egyptian Pyramids – this is hardly a big secret, we all know they are there, but every travel list and ‘bucket list’ surely includes this truly unbelievable sight. The images you see can’t do them justice, and some of the most incredible historical structures in the world are well worth a visit if you are able to get to them. Egypt is a beautiful country and a luxury stay at Port Ghalib can be topped with a trip across the country to see the amazing pyramids.

    See the Burj Khalifa – still being built, but this will be the tallest skyscraper in the world, and the opposite of the ancient architecture already mentioned, this is a hypermodern building which is an amazing thing to see.

    Swim in the Dead Sea – the easiest place to float in the world, this is the lowest lake on dry land (not actually a sea) and it is a truly magical experience to swim in the dead sea and feel the incredible sensation, as well as seeing this nutural marvel.

    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi – what more is there to say? An amusement park made by Ferrari, this is very different to the above, but is just as fun, and offers something for everyone not just car fans, with some exceptional activities.

    How to Live Like a Local in Venice 

    If you plan to take a longer vacation and go to Venice, then you must learn how to live like a local. Venice can be quite expensive for tourists, but knowing some tips and tricks will definitely help you live on a budget.

    where-to-stay-in-venice(1)

    First of all, you should know that taking a Venice airport taxi is a good idea when you are in a hurry and willing to pay up to €150 for a ride. Take the bus, which is more affordable and convenient.

    Don’t stay in a hotel, no matter how attractive the price might be. Instead, rent an apartment to see how it is to live like a local in Venice. Enroll in a cooking class and learn how to prepare local dishes, with fresh ingredients bought from the market. At the Rialto markets, you can find fresh fruits and vegetables and locally caught seafood.

    Don’t take the vaporettos. All the locals walk in Venice, and they walk very fast. Do not be afraid to get lost and explore all the neighborhoods and the narrow streets. It is here where you will find the places where locals eat authentic and fresh food, at low prices. It will take up to one hour to cross the entire island.

    image

    The best part is that you do not know what you will find when you turn the next corner. You will see children playing football, balconies adorned with flowers, old people gossiping in front of a house or laundry hanging above the water.

    Visit the other islands the Venetian lagoon has to offer. Although the most known is the Murano island, there are also the Burano, Torcello, Mazzorbo or Sant’Erasmo. Take your time to see everything they have to offer, as each of them is unique.

    Make new friends and get to know your neighbors. You will see that Venice locals are very friendly and warm. They will give you advice on what to visit and what to do in the city, where to eat local food and where to buy your groceries from.

    Living in Venice is a unique experience that will make you understand what makes this city magical. Venice has many hidden gems that you will discover only by doing what locals do. You will soon learn all the secrets of this city and you will never want to leave Venice.

    Exploring the Charles Darwin Research Centre on the Galapagos Islands 

    The Charles Darwin Research Centre is a must-see for anyone visiting the Galapagos Islands. Founded in 1964, the Centre’s purpose is to protect the Galapagos Islands’ ecosystem and the endangered species that inhabit the islands, through conservation and research. Among its staff are scientists, students and volunteers striving to inform the public on the islands’ ecology.

    Untitled

    Image Credit

    Highlights of the Research Centre

    Situated in the outskirts of Puerto Ayora, the Centre houses tortoises, iguanas and various species of birds including finches, on which Darwin famously based his theory of evolution. Their most famous resident was Lonesome George, a giant tortoise who passed away in 2012 at the grand old age of 100 (ish!).

    Lonesome George, the Centre’s most famous tortoise

    Lonesome George, sometimes known as Solitary George, was thought to have been over 100 years old and weighed in at 100kg when he died. Lonesome George was Pinta Island’s last surviving land tortoise. Sadly, all efforts to breed him with similar tortoise breeds were unsuccessful.

    Breeding enclosures

    Baby tortoises are vulnerable in the wild, so they are incubated at the Research Centre until they are safe to be released into their natural habitat. By etching numbers on their shells, individual animals can later be monitored for research purposes. Visitors can observe these young tortoises at the Centre’s breeding enclosure, and can sometimes catch the older tortoises ‘in the act’!

    Visiting the centre

    Most cruises will stop at the Charles Darwin Research Centre for a tour. If you’d prefer to visit on your own, the Centre is only about 15 minutes away by foot from Puerto Ayora. Many travel agencies will have great deals on Galapagos holidays (see more at http://www.steppestravel.co.uk/galapagos-islands). At the end of your tour, you will also have the opportunity to have photos taken with the animals.

    Where did its name come from?

    The Centre’s namesake spent five weeks in the Galapagos Islands, developing his theory on the origin of species. Nowadays, Darwin’s name is one of the first things people think of when discussing the islands. However, the Research Centre is not the only place whose name derives from another being: the Galapagos Islands themselves got their name from a tortoise with a saddle-shaped shell that was discovered by sailors (“galapagos” being the local term for a saddle).

    One Day in Surabaya, Indonesia 

    Image

    Surabaya is Java’s second largest city and also the capital of East Java. Not known for its tourist attractions – the city is mainly famous for its business, industry and trade. It is a highly populated city that is at odds with the surrounding quiet East Java countryside and while it may seem like a charmless metropolis on first impressions, those that spend a little time here will find its hidden gems.

    Most people find themselves in the city by means of a stopover through plane, train or bus to somewhere else – and many will only be there for one or two days. So, what should you do if you find yourself in Surabaya for the day?

    Here are our tips for spending the day in the city and maximising the amount of time that you have there:

    Start the day at the House of Sampoerna

    The House of Sampoerna is undoubtedly the most popular attraction in Surabaya. It is a cigarette factory that is not just still a functioning factory, but also a museum and café. The museum is really interesting, even if you are an anti-smoker, and hand rolling of the cigarettes is great to see – the café is also really high quality. The best part however is the 1.5 hour city tour that happens every day except Monday at 9 am – it gives you a chance to see the city before getting to the factory.

    The tour is easy to book and accessible through agents like traveloka.com, who can also arrange flights and bus rides.

    image2

    Lunch at Old Chinatown

    Surabaya has one of Indonesia’s biggest Chinatowns, which was created by the large number of Chinese merchants that used to use the port as a trade point. While much of the modern Chinese influence has disappeared, there is still many buildings and monuments that show the deep history of the area. Start at the red bridge of Jembatan Merah and then after walking for around one hundred meters, where you will turn into Jalan Karet, where the Old Chinatown truly begins. Make sure that you take along your phone or camera to get some snaps.

    Old Chinatown is very accessible and hotels such as Hotel Mercure Surabaya will be able to organise a tour for you.

    Image

    An afternoon stop at Monumen Kapal Selam

    Monumen Kapal Selam is an ancient Russian submarine that was captured by the Indonesian navy in 1962 and was used by them until 1990. Now the huge submarine has been retired onto the banks of a river where it attracts many tourists and locals alike. Have a look in the submarine and the mechanical intricacies that make it run – as well as understanding how the torpedo system works. Entrance is 5,000 rupiah but we think it’s worth it. Once you have finished looking at the submarine – you can picnic like the locals on the river bank.

    Many people are just stopping through Surabaya on their way to somewhere else – and this is the perfect opportunity to do these activities in one day.

    Understanding the FCA suitability review 

    Reviews have been requested from 700 advice firms by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), with the reports due this month. The move has been largely welcomed as the industry eagerly waits to hear the FCA’s view on client reports and potential areas for improvement; however, there are some reservations that any feedback may already be obsolete.

    11

    Image Credit

    Advisors adapt to change

    In a fast-moving world, client circumstances can change swiftly, meaning that their needs will also be quite fluid. Regulators may fail to recognise this fact, which would be an oversight in terms of improving the overall perception of the advice sector. Perhaps the best approach would be one of positivity, with supporting industry experts the best way to ensure processes that can weather any change in markets.

    It is important to understand that advisors endeavour to do the best for their clients and give them advice that is relevant at the time in line with their situation and needs. Nobody wants to see a client losing out and the review should be careful to acknowledge this; for example, a dip in investment value does not mean that advisors such as Robert Stones Target Markets have not done a good job. Perhaps it is unlikely that the FCA would tell the industry how to construct a suitability report and the guidance it lays out should not be a framework for best practice – the industry knows it clients better than any regulatory body.

    Hoping for a supportive view

    Rather than using the FCA review as a driver for change, it would be more constructive to view it as a contribution. Advisors do not need regulators to tell them how to do their jobs. Delivering a first class service should already be priority as they strive to maintain good relationships with clients that are founded on trust, with this ethic inherent in the work of companies such as Robert Stones Target Markets.

    While waiting for the report’s findings, industry professionals should be working hard to manage their approach to best practice and taking responsibility for their processes. When the review finds its way into the public arena, it should be a positive overview of what advisors do and how they already work hard to protect the investments of their clients despite the sometimes volatile nature of market conditions.

    What Can You Expect From Israel Tours? 

    If you are planning Israel tours this summer, you will be surprised with the variety of options that this destination offers. In fact, we can freely say that Israel has become one of the leading and the most popular tourist destinations in the world. This is not surprising, considering a number of breathtaking sights you can see. Each of them is unique and has something that will definitely stay in your memory for a long time. Especially if you hire an Israel private tour guide.

    Of course, the first association to Israel tours is religious tourism. As we know, this country is not only the cradle of the Judaism, buts also the land where developed other two big monotheist religions- Christianity and Islam. So, if you want to experience religion in its purity, this destination will be just the perfect choice. If these are places you want to see, make sure to inform your Israel private tour guide on time.

    However, Israel offers much more, and your vacation will not be limited to churches, temples and holy places. Just the opposite. This country is famous for its diverse nature, beautiful beaches, pleasant climate and, which is the most important, warm and friendly people who will be more than happy to help and make your vacation unforgettable.

    Popular Israel tours

    Now, let’s talk a little bit about things you can expect if you decide to spend your vacation with Israel tours. These are some of the most popular tourist destinations in Israel you mustn’t miss if you want to understand this country and all its beauties.

    • There are people who don’t like big cities and crowd, so they will do anything to avoid such places during their vacation. Jerusalem is different. Yes, it is a big and crowded city, but with a help of the Israel private tour guide, you will not have a problem to find quiet places and recharge your spiritual batteries. In this town, you will find traces and holy buildings of three mentioned world’s religious. Even if you are not a believer, these places should be on your radar. On the other hand, Jerusalem is a modern city, with a number of galleries, theaters, restaurants and public parks, where you can take a rest.
    • People who like relaxation and nature will be fascinated with the famous Dead Sea- unique work of nature and one of the most attractive Israel tours you can see. Its name fully reflects what is going under the surface- nothing! Because of the high concentration of salt, there are no usual life forms that we usually expect to see in other “normal” seas on the planet. On the other hand, experts wouldn’t agree with its name, simply because it is not a sea. It is the lake, but the saltiest one. Ask your Israel private tour guide what he thinks about it.
    • Probably the best place where you should go if you have already visited Dead Sea is the Masada, ancient fortress located on the nearby plateau. From here, you can enjoy the spectacular view on the lake and the Judean desert. This desert takes a special place in the Hebrew culture and tradition, because it is the symbol of suffering, courage and starvation of the nation. If you hear gunshots from there, don’t panic- the desert is now polygon for army military drills and exercises.
