Happy Summer!


0 Comments

Today is the first day of the summer. That means more probability of having sunny days and what is more important: holidays! In the northern hemisphere today is the longest day of the year and this day has been celebrated since the ancient times. It is the summer solstice.

The pagans celebrated this day with fire, to symbolize the power of the sun. The tradition was to dance and jump around the fire to purify souls. Nowadays, there are still celebrations of these days, normally Christianized as Saint John celebration on the night of the 23rd of June. We will talk about that tomorrow.

Today we just want to wish you a very happy summer and we hope you enjoy it in the best hotels!

What should never be missing in your luggage?


0 Comments

Luggage
Good travellers are those who know exactly what to put inside their bags, not extra clothes or less than the necessary, just what is strictly needed. Today we will list some of the basic things that you should never forget when packing:

Toothbrush and other toiletries. If you are travelling with a lowcost flight and you are only going to bring hand luggage, toiletries should be in a transparent plastic bag and you will have to take them out for the security control.

Pyjamas or whatever you sleep in. An essential item of clothing.

Underwear. It may sound obvious but some people forget about it when packing fast.

Phone and camera charger. They are also basics but, as they are small and they are normally plugged in there is a possibility we might forget to bring them with us.

Bathing suit. It doesn’t matter if you are travelling north or south, it takes no space and you never know where you will end up (a pool, a spa…a bet to see who is the bravest getting in the sea in December…)

Passport or Identity Card-

Moreover if you want to be one of those perfect travellers you should plan ahead what you will be wearing each day of the trip (and maybe even list it). This way you will be certain of having the exact amount of clothes for the holiday!

Valentine’s Day in Paris


0 Comments

ParisIf you like travelling and your girlfriend/boyfriend likes it too, in stead of a bunch of flowers and a nice card, Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to flight somewhere and spend a romantic weekend with your partner. And what could be more romantic than Paris?

Paris has always been known as “the city of love”. Nobody knows exactly what it is but we all agree on the fact that Paris has “that something”. The small streets, a walk by the Seine, the Tuileries Gardens… everything will seem perfect for the lover’s eyes. From having a dinner for two in a cruise through the Seine, with some romantic music and the views of the wonderful Eiffel Tower or the Louvre, to hiring a bike and going around the city on two wheels, plans for each and every pocket and all different tastes.

However, if this is not the plan for you, it is maybe a bit too sentimental or you don’t have a couple to share this with, wait for the next few posts on Blogtelopia. We will give you other ideas on how to celebrate the day of love, even if you are single!

Art Nouveau in Prague


0 Comments

PragueThe destination of the month in Hotelopia is like a city taken out of a fairy tale: Prague. Its bridges, the river and its colourful houses that contrast with its emblematic dark stone buildings give it a mystical, imaginary splendour. This dreamy sensation is magnified by its Art Nouveau, which became very popular in the capital of the Czech Republic in the 20th century. The Municipal House, the Hotel Europa or the first Exhibition Grounds are a reflection of the extent to which this artistic style has influenced Prague’s architecture. The force of its Art Deco or Modernism (as it’s called in Spain) however, can be felt in many other parts of the city, not only at these prominent buildings. When you are meandering through the streets of Prague, remember to look up. You might find a painted female figure smiling down at you from the top of a house. Maybe, when you open the door to a shop, you’ll find that the iron door handle is in the shape of a climbing plant. Inside a café, a mirror could reflect your image surrounded by a wooden frame showing the craftsmanship of virtuosity. Even in the hotel, its winding staircase will add a touch of magic to your stay. When in Prague, visitors do not need to look for Art Nouveau; they will find it all around them, accompanying them during their stay.

Packing Advice From The Go-Light Guru


0 Comments

suitcasesIf packing to go on holiday means taking everything except for the kitchen sink, then check out website www.onebag.com.

Created by Doug Dyment, the so-called Go-Light Guru, learn about the art and science of travelling light.

With all low-cost airlines now charging extra for checking in luggage, and some (inc. Ryanair) reducing their check-in weight, means you pay more, for the more you take.

The website shows how to create your own reusable packing list, to ensure you’re taking the essentials without over packing.

As for other benefits:

Travelling light means a better journey: You can board trains and busses more easily and get around on underground trains or metros without having heart failure.  It also means you’ll save a packet on taxi fares.
-  Help save the environment: Planes need less fuel depending on the weight of the luggage carried.  The less you take, the less impact you’ll have on the planet.

What’s more, the website is packed with fascinating facts.  Did you know that a wheelie suitcase weighs 75% more and has less space than one without?  Or that you can use dental floss as a cheese or cake cutter, heavy duty thread for making repairs, as a temporary luggage lock, to mend dripping taps, and even if you’re forced to give birth, it is also strong enough to cut the umbilical cord!

After checking out this website, you won’t travel in the same way again.
