Spring Break Travel Tips

Spring break is a great opportunity to see many great attractions of the world. The travel options during this time are limitless. Popular Spring Break destinations each year include Florida, Mexico, the Caribbean, and more – basically any place that is hot and sunny.

 

When planned properly, Spring Break can be one of the most unforgettable experiences for college students and young adults. To ensure that all Spring Break travelers have the time of their lives safely, here are 4 Spring Break travel tips to get you on your way:

 

  • Plan Ahead. In order to prepare and make your vacation possible, you need to allow yourself enough time and resources. Ideally, you’d want to begin your preparations at least 5 months in advance. Start thinking about which place you want to visit. Compare the pros and cons with different housing accommodations as well as the travel methods you will be using to get to your destination. Once you’ve decided on a destination, it’s now time to purchase the tickets and reserve your hotel room. Doing this early on will allow you enough time to save for other expenses and get reasonable deals. However if your trip is more sporadic, some businesses offer last minute deals on their packages if demand has been underwhelming.

 

  • Do the Research. Research is essential if you plan on traveling to a place that you have never visited. It is necessary to familiarize yourself with the location prior to your arrival. Things to research on include currency exchange, culture, entertainment, food, and weather. You also need to determine whether you will need a passport, a photo ID, birth certificate, or all of the above. Additionally, be sure to pack the appropriate clothing and sunscreen for where you’re going.

  • Budget for Expenses. It’s crucial for traveler’s not to lose sight of how important this is. Having a sufficient budget can either make or break your trip. Budgeting your expenses should be done consistently throughout the planning phase of your Spring Break trip. Determine what you want out of your trip, such as tattoos and souvenirs, and allocate your money accordingly. The more attractions and purchases you plan to visit and make, the more you will need to expand your budget. It is also a good idea to under-budget your trip to accommodate for unforeseen expenses. Here is an online budgeting calculator to help you stay on track.

 

  • Get Ready. Make sure that you pack all the essential items for your travels. Example: passport, gear, luggage, local currency, and apparel. If you’re flying to your destination, it would be good to know the rules & policies of the airline in regards to flight cancellation, missed connections, lost baggage claims, and more.

 

Have your trip well planned and prepared in advance. Being an organized traveler will ensure that you have a great time. Get everything together and get ready to enjoy your Spring Break vacation!

Why I Fell in Love with Peru

Those who know me best know that I love traveling to new places and experiencing new cultures and cuisine. I try to put my passport to use every year. So 2013, I decided to put it to use to visit Peru.  The country has been on my must-travel-to list for quite some time now and I was excited to finally have to opportunity to go.  And what could be a better reason, than to watch two of my friends get married!

CUSCO

We spent the first 4 days of the trip in Cusco, which is a quaint city located about an hour plane ride away from Lima. It’s an ancient city which at one time was the most important city in the Incan Empire. It now serves as a beautiful city with sweeping views of the Andes….and also the city in which the wedding took place. The altitude in Cusco is more than 12,000 feet above sea level. Thus, making the air thin. It’s very common for hotels, restaurants, and other public buildings to have oxygen tanks on standby for those are who are short on air. Altitude sickness affects many differently. Some experience nausea, headaches, shortness of breath and general discomfort. It’s advised to drink plenty of water and allow your body to adjust to the new altitude. And for the adventurous traveler, Cocoa Tea is recommended by the locals.

 

The wedding took place in Cusco in a beautiful hotel which used to serve as a monastery hundreds of years ago. The grounds were stunning and beautifully manicured and the building was breathtaking. And speaking of breathtaking, Mariella, the bride, looked gorgeous. They are a wonderful  couple and it truly was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve had the privilege to attend.

MACHUPICCHU

No trip to Peru would be complete without out a visit to Machupicchu, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. It’s an amazing empire built by the Incans nestled on one of the peaks in the Andes Mountains. Many travelers each year take the pilgrimage to the ancient ruins by foot. Starting the journey in Cusco, the trek takes about 4 days. Along the way, the hikers are sure to experience the Peruvian culture first hand through the stunning scenery , the small villages that hikers pass though and the pure serenity that only nature can provide. Others opt for a more luxurious option: by train (which is what I chose.) The train is comfortable and is equipped with a glass ceiling for maximum views of the Peruvian countryside along the way. Meals and beverages are served aboard the 4 hour journey through countryside, over rivers, and through mountains. You know you’re approaching the foothills of Machu Picchu as you start seeing snow capped mountains ahead and intermittent ruins beginning to become more commonplace.  The train’s route ends in a small city called Aguas Calientes, translated as “hot waters” due to the natural hot springs in the area. The city is located in the valley and surrounded by the green, jungle-like mountains.

 

Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, we quickly checked into our hotel and set off for the bus ride up to the peak of the mountain where we would finally experience Machupicchu. The bus ride was a thrill for sure; narrow roads, a windy route, steep drop offs and no guardrails. The 20 minute scenic ride went by quickly. I recommend to anyone who goes to Machupicchu to get your passport stamped. It’s a cool memento and a worth the wait in line.

 

When we finally arrived at the site of the ancient city, we were speechless. I have never experienced such natural beauty that is so intertwined with man’s creation. And the architecture found within Machupicchu’s ruins has been a mystery for many scientists and researchers. The site was built with such precision, that not even the blade of a thin knife can fit through the mortar-less stonework. Upon touring the site, we learned about other mysteries that have been baffling experts for a while: Where did this civilization go? It appears as though the people just disappeared hundreds of years ago. There are no records that explain this. Why did the Spanish not conquer this civilization as they had all other Incan civilizations of its time? We may never know. But one thing’s for sure: the Incans left us with a true jewel.

 

Peru is truly a beautiful place to experience, so it’s important that tourists are adequately prepared before their Peruvian adventure commences. Below are a few tips I would recommend to anyone who plans to make this journey.

 

  •  Allow time to adjust – Machupicchu is located in a very high altitude. Tourists should allow a few days in Cusco to adjust to the altitude before making the trek up to the site. It’s common for tourists to suffer from altitude sickness. Travelers should drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol for the first few days and get plenty of rest. You can also visit a travel clinic beforehand and get a prescription for altitude sickness medication as a precaution.

 

  • Research the significance – Before heading to Peru, research the history of the land and its historical significance. Incan culture is a big part of Peru and it will help tourists fully comprehend the beauty of Machupicchu.

 

  • Endurance Prep – There are two ways to get up to Machupicchu. If the multi-day hiking/camping excursion is the method of choice, tourists should be sure to spend the months leading up to the trip exercising to build up endurance. It’s not an easy trail, so the more prep, the more enjoyable the journey.

 

  • Be adventurous with food – Do not, I repeat, DO NOT eat at a McDonalds during your trip. Did you go halfway around the world to eat somewhere you can easily go to at home? Hopefully not! Part of truly experiencing a culture is through the food. Peruvian food is wonderful and exotic. Be sure to try the local delicacy: Cuy. Or as we call it in the states: Guinea Pig. It tastes just like chicken. Honest!

 

  • Try to learn a little Spanish – The people are nice and very helpful to tourists, but it’s a nice way to prepare for your trip. Good phrases to know are “Thank you,” “How much does this cost,” “Where are the restrooms” and “No thank you.” In either case, bring a language translator.
  • Get covered – Before traveling, I was sure to get travel insurance through Protect Your Bubble. It was affordable, easy to purchase and I enjoyed having peace of mind throughout my Peruvian adventure.

 

When planning your Peruvian adventure, remember that vacation insurance is a great way to cover trip emergencies, cancellations and interruptions. Visit ProtectYourBubble.com for a quick quote.

Pick Pocket Proof Pants – An Extreme Anti-Smartphone-Theft Maneuver

Have you ever had the thought, “gee, my pants just aren’t pick pocket proof enough?” Well if so, then you’re in luck.

 

We at Protect Your Bubble would like to introduce you to: P^cubed – Pick-Pocket Proof Pants.

 

You may think I’m joking but no, these pants really exist, and that for a good reason.

 

Preventing Smartphone Theft: An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

 

Have you ever been worried about walking through a crowd, or taking extra precautions while traveling, simply because you thought your wallet, smartphone or keys would be snatched out of your pocket? Pickpockets are a real danger in our society and you’ll need just more than good senses and carefulness to prevent you from becoming a victim of smartphone theft. Especially in light of the fact that smartphone theft is a growing problem as our cellular lifelines are the ideal targets for thieves.

 

 

Pickpockets are very fast and cunning and in reality, you will not have much chance to stop them from getting to your stuff, unless you have specialized pants with the sole purpose of preventing theft.

 

But how do P^cubed – Pick-Pocket Proof Pants help you secure your smartphone? It’s fairly simple actually. The pants just add additional security measures to the built in pockets in form of additional hidden pockets and additional guards with buttons and zippers to protect what’s inside.

 

Now one could say that all of those extra security measures make your life a bit hard when trying to reach what’s inside, but that’s actually the whole point of those pants. They make reaching the pockets just a little bit harder for you so the thieves have a really hard time trying to get their hands in.

 

The fabric is of very high quality and the pants themselves are very comfortable, and this is what makes them ideal for traveling because you won’t feel them restricting your movements and such.

 

The fact that you need to carry much more when travelling makes these pants invaluable. Thanks to the many pockets, you can really carry around a lot without having to depend on bags or other external cases.

 

If you’re traveling a lot, looking for stylish, durable pants, and invested in protecting your beloved smartphone from theft, then consider picking up a pair of P^cubed – Pick-Pocket Proof Pants. FYI – Protect Your Bubble is not affiliated with P^cubed (we just see a LOT of claims stemming from smartphone theft and think an extra measure of protection while traveling is wicked smart).

 

Speaking of, you may also want to consider getting a little extra protection for your current smartphone. We at Protect Your Bubble have one of the most comprehensive insurance coverage and can help safeguard your phone against theft.

Top 10 Most Expensive Honeymoons in History

When it comes to celebrities and their honeymoons, the competition seems to center on which couple can hold the biggest, most extravagant honeymoon ever. Admittedly, these recent weddings pale in comparison to the olden days of kings and queens who spend arguably far more for their honeymoons than most modern celebrity couples could ever afford when you adjust for inflation.

 

Still, most celebrity couples, including a pair of royal couples, have spent a considerable amount of money on their honeymoons and here we have the top 10 most expensive, at least in recent times. While your honeymoon may not make the top 10 most expensive, you will need travel insurance to make sure that everything goes smoothly.  Check out the different policies available and find one that fits your needs. What follows is the top 10 most extravagant honeymoons in history.

 

Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren

 

This now-divorced couple certainly enjoyed one of the most expensive honeymoons in recent history, although a large part of the expense was the yacht, The Privacy, which was in turn given by Tiger to his bride. The yacht also served as the place where their honeymoon was set as they sailed around the Barbados Islands. The couple reportedly went straight from the wedding to the Sandy Lane Resort in the Barbados where they enjoyed their stay while not aboard the yacht. In total, it is estimated that Tiger Woods spent $57 million on the wedding.

 

Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston

 

While living rather modestly in some respects, at least compared to the fortune that they both had earned, this now divorced couple spent their honeymoon in the beautiful Sechylles, an island group in the Indian Ocean staying in the famed Fregate Island Resort. This exclusive resort only books 40 guest at a time, which was no issue with Brad and Jennifer since they booked all the rooms instead, insuring their complete privacy. The amount of money spent is not fully known, however, it was certainly one of the most expensive in recent years.

 

Prince Charles & Princess Diana

 

Certainly the most celebrated royal wedding in recent history, this power couple of a different sort chose a Mediterranean cruise for their honeymoon aboard the Royal Yacht Brittania. Naturally, they had all the privacy in the world while sailing in this rather large yacht and they also enjoyed plenty of peace and quiet since the crew was not allowed to shout, but instead they had to either write notes or use hand signals instead.

 

Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman

 

This couple certainly spared no expense as they flew via private jet to Bora Bora and rented the most expensive accommodations on the island, paying a whopping $15,000 per night to stay at the St. Regis resort. Reportedly, customs officers checked their passports while the couple waited on the plane. That price for the suite by the way included 24 hour butler service, a private pool and in-room Jacuzzi along with a view of one of the most spectacular islands in the world.

 

Prince William & Kate Middleton

 

Certainly this royal couple had fun gallivanting around a privately-owned island in the stunning Seychelles, which is located in the Indian Ocean, for 10 days while paying a reported $5,000 per night during their stay. During their entire honeymoon, they enjoyed 24 hour butler service and a personal chef. However, the actual price of their honeymoon stay soared well above $720,000 as they rented out all 11 villas on the island to insure their privacy. Unfortunately, despite all that expense photos of their honeymoon were leaked to the press a year later.

 

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes

 

This recently divorced couple certainly had one of the more extravagant and expensive honeymoons in recent history when they rented a private yacht and cruised around the beautiful Maldives Islands in the Indian Ocean. Flying to their destination on a private jet, there were rumors that both of them dined in an underwater restaurant while on their honeymoon. Considering that they took 40 pieces of luggage and lot of toys for their child Suri, this certainly turned out to be one of the most expensive honeymoons on record.

 

Chelsea Clinton & Marc Mezvinsky

 

The daughter of Bill & Hillary Clinton started their honeymoon adventure after a reported $2 million was spent on their wedding which took place in South Africa. However, the honeymoon including an all-expense paid safari tour through the deepest part of the countryside, certainly an expensive adventure to say the least.

 

 

 

Courtney Cox & David Arquette

 

Although their relationship has been over for a while, their honeymoon was certainly very impressive in terms of expense. Not wanting to stay in a single place, Courtney and David visited many different places on their honeymoon adventure including Disney World, Anguilla, Busch Gardens, Cap Juluca and also various places in the Caribbean as well. While not making their honeymoon the most expensive as compared to some others on the list, at least they visited more places for the money that they did spend.

 

Eva Longoria & Tony Parker

 

Spending their honeymoon at the exclusive Parrot Cay resort located in the Turks and Caicos Islands, this expensive, but absolutely stunning area of the Caribbean has been visited by many celebrities before on their honeymoons, including Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to name just one couple. This power couple enjoyed several days and nights at the resort and certainly racked up a hefty bill to put them on the list of most expensive honeymoons in recent years.

 

Jay Z & Beyonce

 

This celebrity power couple certainly had the resources to become number one on the list of most extravagant honeymoons in history. However, while we don’t know all the details of their honeymoon, it appears that they managed to keep it relatively tame compared to others who have gone further. In fact, they mostly stayed in the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain, which is located in Arizona. We do know that they paid a cool $3,500 per night just for the private home which they rented.

The Top 10 Beaches in the World You’ll Want to Add to Your Travel Bucket List

There’s nothing quite like being able to sit out on a beach and relax. Maybe you can have some drinks brought your way as you sit under the shade of a nice umbrella… or maybe you’ve got your sweatshirt on because it is cold and blustery and you’re at the beach not sun-soaked relaxation, but adventure. Whatever the case is for you, there is a perfect beach for you to explore that will be able to meet all your needs, much like having travel insurance can meet your needs should something happen on your trip! Here are the top 10 beaches in the world for you to explore:

 

10. South Beach, Miami FL

 

If you are looking to go to a beach that has a party atmosphere, the South Beach is definitely the place to go! Though known for the many hard bodies that continuously cycle through your gaze, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy the surf as you enjoy some eye candy! You can snorkel out in the pristine waters and see coral reefs, colorful sea life, or just pretend to do so in order to see more of the human life on the beach. And remember, at South Beach, sometimes it’s more fun to be looked at than to be the one looking!

Did you Gift a Graduation Trip? 4 Important Considerations You Need to Think About

travel insurance for travel graduation giftOne of the best gifts a recent high school or college grad can get is a graduation trip abroad: they’ll be temporarily free of responsibilities, in-between additional school or employment, and readily available to spend some time in a new culture. Now that you’ve made the hard decision about where to send your grad and how much you’re able to spend on their expedition, you may then want to take a little extra time and research a few important facts that will make the trip safer, easier, and more enjoyable. Here are 4 quick things to consider as your loved one prepares to roam the world:

 

Possible Rental Car Restrictions

 

After you’ve booked the plane tickets, hotel reservations, and deposited some cash in their travel fund, you may think you’ve got everything covered. But if the location your grad is visiting will require automobile travel, you’ll want to take a few minutes and make sure there aren’t any rental car regulations that could cause a problem. For example, many countries don’t allow anyone under 25 to drive a rental car, even if they have a valid driver’s license. It may not come up with the rental agency—especially if you paid for the car yourself and put it in your child’s name—but you don’t want your recent grad to find out the hard way that they aren’t legally allowed to operate a rental in that country.

 

Understand The Procedure For Replacing Lost Or Stolen IDs

 

Because of our increased connectivity, this task is easier than it’s ever been before, but you’ll still want to fully understand the steps in replacing your student’s lost identification, and then make sure they understand it too. Getting a new ID, credit card, or passport in a foreign country usually involves contacting loved ones at home, insurance companies, the local U.S. embassy or consulate, and anyone else that’s relevant. With a little preparation, you can have a complete procedure in place for this unfortunate possibility.

 

How To Find Medical Care

 

This varies wildly depending on the country, so this is another great category to research before you pack your grad’s bags. Understanding the medical system of the destination country, and how a foreigner can access care will give you incredible peace of mind, as you’ll have plans to accommodate this particularly stressful scenario.

 

General Ways To Be Safe, Avoid Theft, And Not Stand Out As A Target

 

While your grad’s particular country may have a unique environment that you’ll want to research beforehand, many valuable tips concerning general safety can be applied virtually anywhere. Carrying a wallet stocked with items that won’t lead to identity theft if stolen (such as prepaid debit or credit cards), using a smartphone instead of a paper map to help avoid the lost tourist label, keeping valuable items in pickpocket-proof apparel, and dozens of other tips can give your grad the information needed to be as safe and inconspicuous as possible in a foreign land.

 

If you’re looking for another way to add a layer of security to your loved one’s graduation trip, you should consider travel insurance from Protect Your Bubble. They can help protect your grad from missed, delayed, or canceled flights, provide rental car coverage, help locate medical care when needed, and much more.
