Why Travel Makes People #Happy (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Travel_The_World
Some people love to #travel and others not so much. I love most every aspect of it. I like planning a #trip, deciding on the #route, what I want to #see, where I want to #stay, the #flights, in fact the whole caboodle. Then there’s the actual trip which is exciting and when it is over, travel gives you (usually) wonderful #memories. What is there not to like? (C) Alex Wong

Planning is a great time as you get to choose where you want to go, how you are getting there, all aspects of your trip, including #hotel. Today there are so many ways you can get information about the place you have chosen for your trip. For example, say you want to plan a trip to Costa Rica as your neighbors went there last year and they loved it. Certainly you can pick their brains about their #experiences there.

Then you can do your own #research. Online is a great place to start as you can look at maps, visit #blogs about the place and start planning what you will do when you get there. There are flights to book. Is San Jose the right airport for you or would Liberia be a better choice? Check with different airlines or expedia.com for the best routes and what the #price differences are. Maybe you should do some research into all-inclusive deals or general #vacation deals that include hotel and flights.

If you decide you would rather plan your itinerary yourself, then you can spend more time planning your trip. Costa Rica is well known for its beauty and there is so much to do there. You could go on a trip through a rainforest. Maybe a yoga camp? How about #car rentals? You could then #simply go wherever you want each day and not plan much at all. You could start of in San Jose and spend a night or two there to get to know the city and then hire a car and travel north to Arenal where the rainforests are and the volcano. The area is also a renowned spa town. You can either plan ahead and book hotels or just pick a place to stay when you get there – something that is usually very doable.

You could go further north west until you get to the beautiful #Pacific coast where there are lovely small towns on the coast where you can enjoy water sports, go on a trip to see the whales or the turtles, or simply #relax on one of the #beautiful #beaches.

While #Spanish is the language of the country, it is not difficult to get by with just #English. Travelling by car, you could more or less see the whole country in about two weeks and have a great time. Another plus is that it is near the equator so the weather so the weather is usually beautiful all year round. The people are nice and friendly and the country itself is spectacular and so are the flowers and the birds – they even have monkeys.

After your trip, you can spend your time looking at your #photos and re-living the great time you had there. This is just one of the many reasons that travelling is wonderful.

Controlling #Business Travel Costs

Business Travelling, Berlin Training
Sometimes when we are traveling on business, it is easy to let costs get out of control. But if you are working from a per diem or have other constraints on your travel #budget, you should learn some cost cutting #methods that you can put into effect that won’t make your #life miserable on the #road.

These #cost-cutting ideas are not just to stay out of trouble with the budget people back at the #home office.  Often businesses have a set budget for business travel and once it is gone, no further trips can be made during that budget year.  So if you anticipate the need for more business trips in months ahead, it is prudent to keep an eye on costs as you go so you can conserve that limited budget to facilitate important #trips yet to come.

#Economizing on the road can be difficult because you are put right in the middle of the hospitality industry which, while good at making you feel comfortable and providing for your needs, hotels and restaurants are also good at running up your tab.  But there are some easy ways to sidestep a lot of unnecessary spending so you can stretch your business travel budget.

*    Eat before you go.  #Airport restaurants or snack bars are notoriously overpriced.  So even if you are leaving early in the morning, have breakfast and get well satisfied before leaving home so you don’t have to buy #food en route.

*    Wise #packing.  Think through your life in the #hotel and on the road.  You can buy travel sizes of almost everything you will need.  Moreover, you can pack some light and easy to carry snacks such as trail mix, candy bars or nuts that can be used to tide you over during the trip until you can get a good meal.  By being self-dependent during the trip, you save a lot by not using airport services.

*    A hotel is just a bed, a shower and a TV.  When booking your #accommodations, think about where you should stay.  If you don’t need a #luxury hotel, don’t book one.  If you are just staying the night in one place and then moving on, a clean, well run motel can take care of you just as well as the executive suite at the Hilton.

*    #Share that ride.  If you are traveling as a party or you are meeting business partners at the #destination, you can share cabs or rental vehicles and save business costs as well as conserve on burring fossil fuels unnecessarily.

*    #Markets and #delis.  You can even eat economically in a big town like New York or Orlando by using the same sense you have at home.  By taking an early trip to a nearby grocery, you can stock your room with #fruits and #travel foods and cut down on the amount of meals you have to eat out.

*    Public #transportation.  If the town you re traveling to has safe and workable #subways or other public transpiration, that can be much more #efficient for you than renting a car.  Washington DC for example has outstanding rail transport that you can use rather than rent a car.

By using some of the same good common sense you use at home to keep expenses under control for your home budget, you can not only live inexpensively on the road, you can actually live better.  And by not allowing yourself to be #overcharged for some very basic #goods and #services, you will feel better about your business outing and become known in your company as a #smart traveler.
