During our South America trip, we traveled with buses as much as we could especially when there were no time limitations. I generally prefer to travel with anything that stays close to the ground such as trains, buses and cars 🙂 In this post I am going to share my reasons and give you some very useful tips if you’re going to see South America someday.
Every year over 11,000 camels, horses, and cattle are brought to Pushkar. It is a small town in Ajmer, Rajasthan. The reason is quite obvious, to be seen and sold. The Pushkar open-air livestock market is held on every November in Pushkar and is one of the world’s largest livestock markets. Owners of ranches come here to buy and sell animals. And at the same time there is a camel festival in here.
Times zones, duration of flights, your seat number on the plane and many other things affect our comfort during a flight. Do you want to check-in your seats by knowing the plane model and seat plan beforehand?
In this article, I want to talk about the travel junkie’s nightmare that is jet lag. Jet lag can be best described as the biological confusion that reigns when the body’s internal clock is at odds with the one at the destination.
An example: You feel like jumping on a plane to New York, and Turkish Airlines flight no. TK3 on an A330 takes off at 7:25 AM. When you get off the plane it’s around 11:30 AM but your watch says 18:30 PM. For now, no problem. Yet, jet lag is sneaking up on you… At around 16:00 PM in New York City, Istanbul time will be midnight, and you need to be active when your body wants to sleep!
I decided to share our experience of crossing the Atlantic so I will try to give detailed information about how to cross the Atlantic ocean on a sailing boat and our journey and answer the most frequently asked questions that people throw at us all the time.
