Swiss Holidays on Rails

Reasons: Why You Should Travel by Train in Europe ?

People often fly when cities are so close to each other but one should definitely pass by the experience and the joys of train Travel in Europe. Rails in Europe can be a wonderful medium of journey to travel.

Here is the reasons to Travel by Train in Europe:

CONVENIENCE

Train stations are located in every small, medium, and large city in Europe. Literally, you can be in the hearts of these cities when you step out of the train station. We’re talking about door-to-door, point-to-point service here making travel by train in Europe more convenient. Minimal taxi rides and fares!

COMFORT

Train travel gives you more legroom, you can move around and you don’t need to wait for the seatbelt sign to be switched off! 🙂

CHARM

This reason is my personal bias because being in a train reminds me of how people in the past traveled and how creative they were when they travelled. I think of Hemingway and all those great poets and writers who were able to write their masterpieces in a train. It just makes me feel connected to them in that rail kind of way.

CLEANLINESS & FRIENDLY SERVICE

Trains in Europe are just about as spick and span as my grandmother’s kitchen. Keeping rest rooms clean is considered a profession in Europe and they take it very seriously. I love it! Really nice people work on trains from all different nations and pride themselves for being part of the European Rail System.

THE EURO

The Euro is the currency of 18 of the 28 member states of the European Union (that includes major destinations such as France, Spain, Greece, Italy and Germany). Because majority of Europe is combined under one financial system, you don’t need six different types of currencies to travel from say Austria to Slovenia.

MORE BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE

During the train travel, especially when you travel first class, you have plenty of room for yourself and your companion and a big space for your luggage. Really convenient!

One can have such a great experience travelling around Europe by train. These are the top reasons why one should travel by train in Europe. I hope it is agreeable to all.

Magical Melbourne with our Australia Tour Packages

There are 7 continents, 196 countries and so many cities in the world not to mention… Melbourne is just one of those many cities… And yet it is winning most livable city award over and over the years… Why? I knew exactly why. And that’s why you should visit Melbourne when your are on tour to Australia.

I have lived in Melbourne for 12 years. So who knows Melbourne weather more than I. It is cold most of the year (Apr to Oct). But, not that cold whereby you have to pick up snow from your car and drive way. It snows where it belongs, up on the mountains. Winter is a wonderful time for snow activities such as skiing, tobogganing and many others. You are looking at 2 to 15 degrees through these months.

Then come my favorite time Summer Nov to Mar. We are looking at about 20 to 40 degrees in these months. Best time to enjoy beaches. Melbourne has some of the best beaches like St. Kilda beach. We can enjoy a simple walk on the safe sandy beach with a long palm-lined broad walk, surfing, swimming, Beach volley ball, beach cricket or picnicking with family.

St-Kilda-Beach

Separating Summer and winter won’t help. Melbourne can have 4 seasons in a day. One must carry a jacket and an umbrella most of the year. Cause you never know what you may need. 🙂

Melbourne has best cafes in the world. You would get world class coffee and best bakery items. They have it all, with and without eggs.  Melbourne crowd is very health conscious. There is a variety of vegetarian dishes you will get in any restaurant. I worked for a company who had meetings and training frequently. Meals were always a part of it, whether it was lunch, supper (dinner) or tea (Snack). I have tried amazing pure vegetarian food which I never imagined. And believe it or not, I don’t even know some of the dish’s names.

Cafe-in-Melbourne

I found people to be very friendly and organised. If you are looking for directions for your destination in America, first thing you will hear is ‘I don’t know’. And on the other hand, in the whole Australia, they will always be happy to help even if they have to go out of their way. They work limited hours, but work is always done. They finish their tasks and ask for more work if working hours are still left. Once their working hours are finished, they won’t stop for anything.

Melbourne is famous for its architects too. Beautiful buildings and structures are found here. They are inspired by European designs a lot of the time. Best example for contemporary design is Federation square, Crown casino and Eureka Tower.

Pub-in-Melbourne

English is the main language here. Having said that you will also hear a lot of Chinese, Greek, Italian, Indian and many more languages when sitting in public transport as there are people from all over the world living here. Talking about public transport, Melbourne has a vast range of options starting from Trams, buses, trains (underground in the city center) and taxis. All options are reasonable.

Melbourne has zone system. City Center and surroundings are in zone 1, few kilometers in outer layer is zone 2 and further out is zone 3. You can buy a day pass for any zone; can be used for Train, tram or bus for that particular zone.

Melbourne is known to have best universities across the world. Students come from overseas to study and make career. Every year thousands of students get graduated in Melbourne. Subjects from Arts to Aviation, Geology to I.T., Sea life to hospitality all is taught here in Melbourne.

Parkville_Melbourne_University_(Ormond_College)

We have the best sports grounds, pools and clubs to promote sports. Government spends huge amount of money in coaching for a number of sports here.

Talking about sports ground we must mention MCG. So many cricket matches played there by our Indian players. I have visited MCG few times. Each time I go to cricketer’s changing room, I can hear and feel them there. Guide shows us where Sachin might have set and his picture is hanging on the wall along with other renowned cricketers. It is a magical experience indeed.

Learn the Change on Singapore Tour

The Singapore Story, Lee Kuan Yew

On 16th of September, 1923 the world witnessed the born of a great Singaporean leader, Lee Kuan Yew. From 1959 to 1990 Lee was the prime minister of Singapore; which till date is considered to be the longest-serving PM in history. Singapore went on to become the most prosperous nation in Southeast Asia under the leadership of Mr. Lee and that’s why you should visit Singapore once to see the change. After his retirement from Prime Minister Post, he went on to become the Minister Mentor of Singapore to provide his expert assistance in guiding the nation.

Lee-Kuan-Yew-Singapore-Leader

The era of 1960’s and 70’s is widely remembered for Lee’s speeches; which provides his vision for Singapore and make Tourism the top priority for the natural resources starved nation. The creation of building several tourist attractions such as, the Night Safari, Singapore Flyer (World’s second highest Ferris wheel at 165m, the highest being taken over by the High Roller build in Las Vegas at 167.6m), Marina Bay Sands (World’s most expensive resort property built at a whopping cost of US$4.70 Billion) and many more attractions that places Singapore on top of the tourist list. Many nations have failed in attempts of National Airline but not Singapore. Singapore Airlines one of world’s top airlines is the brain child of Lee and it continues to be profitable. The Changi Airport is voted as world’s best airport for last 24 years. Along with tourism, Lee has worked hard over a period of time to make Singapore a country to invest with relaxed laws and transparent governance has paved way for the increase in the investments. Today, Singapore is financial hub of Southeast Asia and an economical force to reckon.

Things-To-Do-in-Singapore

Lee Kuan Yew believed in the power of marketing to transform the way Singaporeans lived and the way world viewed Singapore. Many management experts around the world have termed Lee as the first Managing Director of a Country, a title never heard before and hardly thought of for a prime minister of a country. His marketing mantra was that it’s all about Perception. It’s having people think what is here. The magic of marketing works wonders on the economy and society.

Innovative techniques adapted by Singapore in generating business opportunities and promoting tourism are amazing. Lew Kuan Yew said in an interview with the New York Times that he seeks to make Singapore a first world in the third world region. According to him, building the infrastructure was easy; however the difficult part was to change the old habits and behavior of the people to live like first world citizens and stop spitting and littering on the streets. And Singapore embarked on a journey on the journey to greatness. There were lots of campaigns to change the face of the society. Some strict laws were enforced by Lee to improve the public image such as ban on chewing gums and punishment for throwing garbage from rooftops. Etiquette campaign such as emphasis on speaking English, acts of kindness and welcoming tourists with smile. The result is astonishing; with only 5.47 million of population Singapore received over 15.6 million of visitors/tourists (with 7% Growth) in 2013.

During the decades in which Lee held office, Singapore grew from being a third world country to one of the most developed nations in Asia, despite limitations of land space and lack of natural resources. For Lee Singapore’s people were only its natural resources who joined and helped for the transformation of the country. Widely respected by locals and madly loved by the old generation; and will be remembered for his leadership which shaped Singapore of today. Indeed, for many people in Singapore and other countries, Lee is immortalized with Singapore’s country brand.

Lee Kuan Yew will always be remembered who shaped Singapore into a first world country in a region of third worlds. His contributions in socio-economic areas are remarkable with Singapore’s per capita income today standing at $78,744. Lee’s attachment to Singapore can be measured when he said, “Even from his sick bed, if people were to lower him into the grave and he feels something is going wrong, He would get up.”

So, As an Indian should plan Tour to Singapore to discover Lee Kuan Yew’s Vision, You will come to know the growth this country made is fantastic.

Great Learning on Our Tour to Japan

Why Japan is called LAND OF RISING SUN ?

My recent visit to Japan was fabulous where we all were in a group.. All senior citizen group was with me. It was a great experience, Japan is a beautiful country… I visited so many countries but i really felt that this is a country which everyone has to visit once in a life.. Its purity, cleanliness and its natural beauty attract all..!! If I close my eyes today, the glimpse of Japan comes in my memory. I could not stop myself from sharing my experience.

Japan is called the “land of the rising sun” because from China it appears that the sun rises from the direction of Japan. The Japanese people call their country “Nippon” or “Nihon” which literally translated means “source of the sun.” OR “the sun’s origin”…It is loosely translated into English as “Land of the Rising Sun “..!!

While I was in china I found that the Chinese Imperial name for Japan was Nihon .It simply indicates the direction of Japan with respect to China. If you are in China — than Japan is towards your east. In China it also appears that the sun rises from the direction of Japan.

Japanese language originally referred to Japan as Wakoku. These characters mean “country of the Wa”. Wa was an ethnic group that lived in Japan during the Three Kingdoms period (220 – 280 AD).

During my visit to Japan I stayed on Honshu island there are 3 main other islands namely Shikoku , Kyushu and Hokkaido. Apart from that Japan consists of thousands of islands, many of which are too small for the people to live. Shikoku and Kyushu are smaller islands located in the south of Honshu, and Hokkaido is in the north of Honshu.

Japan also have many other names in English, Japanese, and other languages. The word “Japan” is an exonym, and is used by a large number of languages. The Japanese names for Japan are Nippon and Nihon. I found that the Japanese name which is used for the most official purposes,including on Japanese money, postage stamps and for many international sporting events is Nippon. Nihon is a more casual term and it is very frequently used in contemporary speech.
