You won’t believe how close this plane comes to this beach

We at Concordia Travel do like to experience those things out of the ordinary,  and we don’t usually shy away from things.

But lazy on this beach in St Maarten (Dutch Antilles in the Caribbean) is possible a step too far, even for us ardent travelers.

I mean we love laying around on a stunning white sandy beach in the Caribbean as much as the next person. Who doesn’t? But the best thing about this is relaxing and chilling out, and that certainly isn’t possible when there is a giant 747 only a few feet above your head.

5 Awesome stop over destinations

Traveling to destinations that are literally the “other-side of the world” can put a lot of people off. The long journey alone can often be the the biggest hurdle to overcome. I get it who wants to sit in a metal tube in the sky for 20hrs or more, certainly not me. And its not just the time in the air either, there’s the inevitable connection and a few hours in a random airport somewhere, waiting for another long flight.

This often means that many of you will never ever visit those far flung destinations you’ve been dreaming of. I think this is such a shame as to truly experience something completely different to our norm we really need to travel far. After all the main reason for traveling is to experience something new.

So why not ease the journey and stop off somewhere on route, it means the traveling is not such a chore and you get the bonus of a few nights in another awesome place.

Often a sop off for those traveling from Europe to Australasia, there are lots of reasons to visit, but the most popular has to be the Kuala Lumpur Nightlife. It is such a vibrant and buzzing city, that it makes a great place to spend a night or two. Great food, great bars and a really chilled atmosphere.

A funny read for your trip

We all love a good read on our travels, if your like us you don’t think a kindle comes even close to reading a real book? But when traveling they do have their advantages.

For example the ability to carry a virtually unlimited choice of books to read on your travels. If you on an extended trip this along with the ability to download more (using free wifi) means you never run out of something to read.

The Rise of Low Cost Carriers

Ever since the mid 90’s the UK aviation market has undergone a rapid transformation.

No longer are we restricted to the monopoly of the legacy carriers (think British Airways BA), now we have a much wider choice. This all came about with the introduction of the “Low Cost Carrier” or LCC as they are known.
