Petra is now a United Nations World Heritage Site, a status that helps preserve its main attractions. It is Jordans main tourist attraction and situated to the south on the capital Amman and north of Aqaba on the red sea.

Entrance to the city is through the Siq, a narrow gorge, over 1 kilometer in length, which is flanked on either side by soaring, 80 meters high cliffs which is in places only 3/4 meters wide. Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself. The colors and formations of the rocks are amazing.

Petra was featured in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

You will either love it or hate it. It’s a place like no other, tacky, preposterous and outrageous. You will find it all here.

Las Vegas was founded by the Spanish in the 1800’s and served as a stopover on the pioneer trails to the west, and became a popular railroad town in the early 1900s. Legalization of gambling in 1931 resulted in the the development of the casino-hotels for which Las Vegas is famous.

Unless you are a high roller 3 nights should be enough to take it all in. If you can afford it stay in the Bellagio. Take in as many of the casino-hotels on the Strip as you can, all have there own theme and attractions. Explore ancient Egypt at the Luxor, tour the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or take a gondola ride in Venice’s Grand Canal at the Venetian. There is cheap public transport available, bus and monorail. Walking is not really an option because of the heat or the cold and the sheer size of the hotels.

Weddings - Las Vegas is one of the easiest places in the world to tie the knot.

Must See:

Stratosphere Tower - Get a bird’s-eye view of the famous Vegas Strip, take a trip to the top of the 1,149-foot-tall Stratosphere Tower.

Forum Shops at Caesars Palace - A Roman theme shopping mall like no other.

Manhattan Express at New York-New York - Take a wild ride on a roller coaster that hits a high speed of 67 mph.

Fremont Experience - Stroll under a 90-foot-high, 1,400-foot-long canopy, look skyward for a dazzling light and sound show

From sunrise strolls along the Seine or on the Champs-Elysées and it’s other grand boulevards. Paris’s beauty is still overwhelming, especially at night, when it truly is the City of Light.

The best time to visit is in the spring. Allow at least 3 or 4 days to see the main attractions. There is so much to see and do you could spend weeks there. Public transportation, especially the underground Paris Metro / RER, makes it easy to get around to many attractions and neighborhoods. If you have kids the Euro Disney is just a short Metro ride away.

If you have the time then a day trip to Versailles the stunning palace of Louis XIV, the Sun King or a short trip to Notre Dame de Chartres a magnificent medieval Cathedral with some of the oldest and most beautiful stained glass in the world.

They are the biggest budget airline in Europe with over 600 routes across 26 European countries. The airline has many critics mainly due to hidden charges like and customer service issues, but overall it’s the fares that keep the customer coming back.

I have personally been using Ryanair for years with no problems. I recently flew from Ireland to Germany for 2 cents total cost. You won’t find fares like that every day but they do specials all the time, so it’s worth getting on their mailing list.

To get the best deal on Ryanair, book and check-in online and you will get priority boarding. Look out for baggage charges as limits are strictly enforced. The also have good deals in car hire, travel insurance and hotels from time to time.
