The place to start your next trip!

Welcome

TRAVEL AND TRAVELLING
Passport

Travel is one of the most pleasurable activities that can be enjoyed by almost everyone.  Exploring new countries, cities, villages, cultures, exotic and romantic destinations around the world… Just thinking about it gives one the urge to travel, whether alone, with one’s spouse, with family or with friends.

 

Today, the Internet plays an important and constantly evolving role in our everyday work lives, as well as in our travel planning.  This free website is a collection of travel-related information and links, as opposed to a series of bookmarks or a listing of favorites, both of which are often incomplete. 

 

In these pages, you will find useful tips, checklists and videos to help you plan your next vacation and uncover the best deals.  You will also learn about the most popular destinations and where to get help in planning that unforgettable vacation.  This “travel one-stop shop” is for you.  We hope you explore its full potential!
