It is time to visit Canada!


October is one of the ideal months to visit Canada. Not only with autumn providing beautiful colours in trees and forests, but a weather phenomenon enriches the whole, the Indian summer.

The term first appeared in Pennsylvania in the late eighteenth century and to Canada in 1821. It refers to the heat wave that comes after a period of freezing. One possible explanation of the term is that it is this period that the Native Americans took advantage of improving the time to complete their harvest before winter.

This may take several days, a week or even not happen at all in some years! Anyway, the beauty of autumn in Canada and the opportunity to walk around an explosion of colours on a carpet of dead leaves all with a summer sun that caresses your skin will leave no one indifferent.

So where to go? Excellent question! With 9,984,670 km ², Canada is 41 times the size of the UK and 20 times the size of Spain. 45% of the country consists of forests or 10% of the world’s forests. Stop with the numbers, all that math was to explain that you have a choice! Wherever you go in Canada you can admire the majestic expanses.

There is also sport in Ibiza


When someone mention’s “Ibiza”, you automatically think “DJ, clubs, dance, beach party, beautiful villas…” And you’re right! But Ibiza is not only fun and decadence! It is also a beautiful island that offers many sports activities. Little review of sports to play on the beach and the sea …

This island located a hundred kilometers off the coast of Valencia will offer sports activities for all tastes and all budgets. The  classic Beach volleyball, Beach football, or you can also participate in a game of Water Polo at the beach.

Any excuse is good to remove toxins accumulated during the previous evening! Horseback riding at sunset, diving supervised by professionals to explore the beautiful seabed, a few hours in a kayak or boat to observe the cliffs and coves inaccessible land on foot, some fishing on a boat off the coast, all of which will remain unforgettable memories of your vacation.

And after much effort, you can practice the sport you probably mastered the best, lazing around or dancing under the Balearic sun!

Book your hotel in Ibiza and Formentera .

Last call for Oktoberfest!


The first weekend of October is also the last weekend of Oktoberfest in Munich!

This 200 year old tradition attracts millions of people who gather to party, eat, dance and drink … as German!

The gathering is located near the centre of Munich, where you can walk from Central Station or get the subway (U-Bahn). There, several acres of grassland become the largest carnival in the world. Dozens of great attractions for children as adults brighten your day.

The site consists of these attractions and many capitals are opened from 12am to midnight. More family in the day, it becomes a huge party in the evening. You must remember that Oktoberfest is above all the beer festival! With more litres of beer drank than people attending (7,000,000 in 2010), the tables are all occupied by the mab (in other words, one litre mugs) and by the participants!

This unique event combined with the beauty of the city of Munich provides you two great reasons to go there next weekend for the last day of the Oktoberfest in Munich.

United States: Here we come!


In less than 15 days, we will celebrate the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus … what a perfect opportunity to follow the path of the famous explorer!

Let’s go to the USA!  October is one of the best period of the year to enjoy the East coast.

New York is clearly a destination to consider  with an intermediate climate and less tourists per square meter !  The city is waiting for you:  yellow cabs, skyscrapers and the unique energy of the Big Apple.

A last idea among millions:  if you have more time and a felling a little hungry : trying out the different influences of the all so flavored New-York street food (asian, italian, latin…) and maybe finishing your day with a walk in Central Park in the heart of Manhattan before going back to your hotel room for a deserved rest… even if this city never sleeps !

Check your hotel in New-York with Hotelopia.

The Giants’ Causeway


The most famous touristic place in Northern Ireland is also the most unique in many ways.  This place seems to be coming straight out of a dream … You can’t go to Nortehrn Ireland without making the trip to The Giant’s Causeway otherwise you will regret it all your life!

The volcanic landscape of the spot is made of millions of basalt columns make it look like giant steps coming out of the water.  Amazing in its natural yet so regular structure, it is worth being visited by both kids and adults.

To enjoy the tour better, don’t forget to go for a walk on the beach, where the rough sea violently crashes at the bottom of the cliffs.  And above all, don’t forget your camera, a few beautiful snapshots will be nice memories for you to take back home!

For lovers of extreme sensations,   you can continue your trip a little ahead along the coast and discover “Carrick-a-rade”… nothing but a rope bridge hanging 25 meters  over the sea !

Istanbul travel guide


Istanbul, bridging the East and West

One of the key elements that make this city such a magic place is its attractive geographic location between two continents, Europe and Asia. Here visitors will be captivated by a mixture of colours and scents that give a special touch to the city. Everything in Istanbul makes it seem as though it were a scene out of One Thousand and One Nights: colours, carpets, bazaars

Still today, the magnitude of two of the most significant empires in history is appraised in this ancient capital: the Ottoman Empire and the Byzantine Empire. For this reason, in 1985 the historical quarters of Istanbul were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
