With the right amount of planning, you can make this a smooth and seamless venture and ensure that nothing gets overlooked. Following is a comprehensive checklist to help you get started.
Make sure that there are no loose ends at work. Let your co-workers know when you will be leaving and your exact date of return. Send out regular email reminders in advance of your trip so that no one forgets. Clean out your inbox and delegate all unfinished business to capable parties. You should also create an auto-message for all email contacts and update your status on your voice message. Have a special contact person set up in the office to field calls and mitigate problems on your behalf.
At home, let your utility companies know that you’ll be leaving and for how long. Turn off the gas and electricity in your home if you’re

If you think the airfares you see are as high as the flights they are for, it might be time to start your hunt for cheap flight tickets. Keeping in mind the various factors that govern ticket pricing, here are ten stellar secrets to zero in on affordable flight fares.
1. Keep An Eye On Prices:
Airline companies tend to have their airfares in constant fluctuation. Seasonal rates and off-season offers are popular terms amongst the airline biz. Sign up for various newsletters and check your emails periodically to ensure you don’t pass up on an offer “you can’t refuse”.
2. Choose The Right Time:
Waiting for the right time never fails. Scout out the ticket fares various companies offers, including the various portals through which they are offered. Several airlines offer better rates for flights on weekdays, as opposed to weekend flights. So, make sure you factor in those options as well before you buy your ticket.
3. No Window Or Aisle:
More often than not, seat preferences also play a role in ticket pricing. You will find that because more people ask for the window seat or aisle seat, they
Is it expensive to winter in the sun? Well I can only speak as I have experienced life in Spain. It does depend on your expectations. Housing is still very low in price but is beginning to rise, apartments can still be found under 50k. Inland houses offer more land and are cheaper than on the coast. There are project dwellings available or habitable houses. Long-term winter rentals are available too.
Heating is obviously cheaper than in England. We have found the winter here to be quite mild and in fact haven’t put a fire on all winter, although some days a cardigan is appreciated. There have been some chilly days, but usually by lunchtime, it reaches 18-20 degrees. Evenings can be cool. We are told, it has been a mild winter here.
Food is probably a similar price as in England, but wine and beer are plentiful and inexpensive. You will be able to eat outside most days if you have a sheltered patio area. Many people eat out at the tapas bars and restaurants regularly. In some areas English products can be hard to find, and fresh milk isn’t always available, however fresh bread
Situated in southeastern Louisiana, the City of New Orleans straddling the Mississippi River, is a city full of flare, flamboyance, zeal and zest towards life. It is a city of rich history, natural beauty and lively inhabitants. After months of planning, preparation and travel related admonitions by my close friends, I had the pleasure of making a lovely visit to the Big Easy (one of the many names for New Orleans) last year. I was amazed to see how the city had coped up with the devastation brought about by the ruthless hurricane Katrina in the year 2006. Obviously I had seen the destruction on my tele but was really impressed to observe that the people had not abandoned their sprightly way of living despite the hard times they had to go through.
I’ve always been fascinated by history and the lessons it teaches as this is what helps us grow and evolve with time. The American Civil War is one of my all time favorite topics and to see thousands of historical artefacts stacked up all in one place; i.e. The Museum of Confederacy, was a liberating experience. The museum paints a picture of the Civil
If you have an appointment at the hospital and can’t drive yourself, there is a solution. For most non-urgent medical situations, a patient transportation service is the most convenient, comfortable, and stress-free choice. These companies interface between the customer and any medical clinic to make sure you get to your appointment on time.
Patient transportation is a crucial part of the healthcare system. Annually, over three million Americans delay or miss out on the medical care they need because they are unable to find transportation. This is especially true for low-income patients and those with chronic, ongoing conditions.
Thankfully, a transfer service aims to make the whole process easy for the customer. The driver will usually pick up the customer at their own home and wait for them to finish with their appointment. Drivers are also trained to accommodate your medical needs and prioritize your comfort.
Because patient transportation is non-urgent, you often do have to book in advance, unlike an emergency ambulance pick-up. The same-day transfer is sometimes available; however, it’s important to call and ask. Also, many van services are 24/7, so no more asking your relatives to rearrange their schedules for you!
Once upon a time, taking a taxi was a pretty simple process. You hailed a taxi from the corner, or caught one outside the arrivals terminal at the airport. You told the driver where you were headed, and then you sat back and rode. The time between catching it and arriving at your destination was dead time – downtime where there was nothing that could be done. That’s changing today. Wi-Fi in a cab allows you access to unprecedented benefits.

Productivity on the Go
Most of us have become accustomed to doing at least some work on the go. You might network with business associates on your smartphone while riding the train to the office. You might use your downtime between appointments and meetings to get some work done on that report. In these instances, you use your device’s data connection. However, that can be problematic in some area. Tall buildings, bridges, tunnels and the like can all make it difficult to get any signal at all, much less one capable of handling heavier data transmissions. With Wi-Fi in a taxi, you don’t have to worry about that
