Travel Tips Travel checklist: The best travel advice you will ever get February 03, 2019

Do you travel a lot? Is this your first time? Do you find traveling daunting? Is traveling alone for the first time a scary experience for you? If the answer to any of the above is yes then this travel checklist is for you! In order to make the ultimate travel checklist for you we have searched all given advice from numerous enthusiastic travelers, including ourselves, and cross referenced everything. Here is your ultimate guide of the best travel advice. The best packing advice 1- Make a list We often make several mental lists when we start planning our trip. However, time and constant traveling have proven that such mental lists are futile. The keyword here is making a real documented list! When you first start planning your trip start a packing note on your cell phone, and whenever you remember something add it to the list immediately. 2- Research and plan your outfits ahead Research the weather where you’re going, and plan you preliminary itinerary. This will help you plan the outfits you need for the trip. Will you need hiking boots? Raincoats? Swimming suits? Planning all this ahead will help you pack what you need so you don’t have to buy last minute in a place you don’t know. And when packing shoes, always opt for comfort. Even if you are traveling for business and need dressy shoes, invest in a pair of comfortable dressy shoes. Nothing can ruin your day like being unable to explore because your feet are in pain. 3- Be flexible That said, you have to allow for change. Do not for instance pack your bags to the point of bursting, leave room for shopping. And add a light jacket even if you are traveling during summer and a light shirt in winter, allow for surprises. Also try to pack versatile pieces, a piece that can be worn more than once and in different ways is a true gem when traveling. 4- Mix personal items If traveling with family or with a spouse, it is much better to mix items in all bags instead of assigning a bag to each person. This way, if one of the bags is lost no one is left without any personal belongings. 5- Pack a first aid kit Packing this is much easier than trying to shop for meds in an unfamiliar place. The basics are a pain killer, antiseptic, band aids, something for insect bites, something for upset stomach and something for sunburn. If you happen to use any specific medication make sure to pack enough of that as well. The best vacation advice 1- Diversify your personal economy Do not put all your money and all your credit cards in one place, and do not carry a lot of cash with you. The same thing goes for travel documents such as passports, keep a copy of everything and put in another pocket or another bag. 2- Ask the locals for advice If you want to find the best transportation and the best local food, the best travel advice we can give you is to ask the locals. And by locals we do not mean the hotel reception. The hotel often has offers that they want to sell, it’s better to ask local citizens or residents for that sort of advice. And don’t be afraid to try the local cuisine, after all, it is a huge part of the traveling experience! Put that on your travel checklist right now, try local street food. 3- Take lots of photos There is a fine balance between taking a lot of photos to save the memories and not making any memories because you are too busy taking photos! No matter how many people tell you to not waste your time taking photos don't listen to them. Of course taking photos should be on your travel checklist. The best travel advice for this dilemma is to allow yourself a few minutes whenever you go someplace new to take photos. Once your 5 minutes are up, put the camera away and enjoy the experience. 4- Learn some of the local language Even a few words like hello and thank you will forever be a part of your traveling experience. Plus, they make your interactions with the locals much nicer, saying hello to someone in their native language can make a new friend, especially if accompanied by a smile. 5- Embrace the unexpected No matter how well you review your travel checklist or how long you plan your trip, surprises always happen, and they are not always the fun sort. However you have two choices, either to panic and ruin your trip or to embrace whatever comes your way and consider it an adventure. Lost in a place you do not know where the locals do not speak your language, the adventure of a lifetime! Your bag was lost, time for shopping! Just relax and try to have fun no matter what.

Eating & Dining Sun, salt and seafood: the best restaurants in Alexandria February 20, 2019

Extending along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and featuring a magnificent skyline,  Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt. The city is famous for many things; the salty smell of the beachfront air, the ancient cobblestone streets downtown, and of course, delicious food. Restaurants in Alexandria range from fancy seafood restaurants to traditional falafel restaurants, and all offer a unique toothsome experience. Founded by Alexander the Great, the coastal city is an important tourist destination in Egypt. This has added to the number of tourist attractions and the number of restaurants in Alexandria. So let’s take a scrumptious tour through the famous cuisine in the city, and taste what Alexandria has to offer. White and Blue Restaurant, The Greek Club It does not get any better that this in Alex! A fine dining restaurant offering delicious seafood with a magnificent sea view. This restaurant has been one of Alexandria’s staples for years and years. The indoor area is very elegant and fancy, but the true gem here is the outdoor terrace. Overlooking Alexandrian port on one side and the Qaitbay fort on the other, the terrace is extremely popular, especially during weekends. So you better book in advance. The Tarama and Herring appetizers are absolutely a must there, they make the perfect companion to the fresh white bread which is served hot. For the main course, you can check what’s on display that day in the cooler and make your choice accordingly. The only downside to this amazing restaurant is that it shares a limited parking area with other popular destinations including Qaitbay fort so parking spaces are hard to come by, especially around lunch hour. Other than that, the experience is flawless. Zephyrion The name Zephyrion means sea breeze in Greek, and the place serves fresh seafood right on the sea. The blue and white terrace overlooking Aboukir Bay is a wonderful place to enjoy the sea breeze indeed. Founded in 1929, the restaurant serves fresh seafood. The seafood display there is various and plentiful, and everything is so fresh and prepared exquisitely. That is why Zephyrion has been one of the most popular restaurants in Alexandria for years. Even though it is located in Aboukir, more than 20 minutes drive from the city, the place is often packed during weekends so it is better to go early and sit in the terrace to enjoy the view and the fresh air as reservations there depend largely on word of mouth and not guaranteed.   Chez Gabi This charming small pizzeria is a hidden gem in Alexandria, it is the place no Alexandrian will tell you about because they would love to keep for themselves, and you have no hope whatsoever of stumbling upon it by chance. The quiet place, hidden in a backstreet in downtown Alexandria, looks simple and unassuming from the outside, but once you go past the wooden doors, its rustic interiors will take you right to the heart of Italy. And the classic italian songs playing in the background will provide the perfect backdrop to your meal. The family run pizzeria serves a variety of Italian dishes, including homemade pastas with brilliant sauces and several chicken and meat main courses. But you must try their pizza, authentically Italian and absolutely delicious. If you are going with a group get a variety of dishes and try everything, you will not regret a single choice in their menu.   Balbaa’s Village for Grilled Food The huge restaurant can in fact host and feed an entire village! As soon as you approach the place, the delicious scent of grilled food envelop your senses promising a hearty meal, which the restaurant will certainly deliver. As soon as you sit, you will be greeted with a basket of fresh bread and a wide assortment of salads to choose from, everything is freshly prepared and simply toothsome, try to leave room for the main course though as it is really good. We highly recommend ordering a rice tagine with your grilled meat, it is not to be missed. Latino Cafe & Restaurant This place is always crowded, weekday, weekend, day, night, it is always packed. We find this understandable as it is one of the best cafes and restaurants in Alexandria. If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy a stunning view of the Mediterranean, accompanied by a  good meal, a good shisha and one of the best desserts in Alexandria then Latino is your place. The food and drinks are of very good quality, but the star of the show is the famous Alexandrian dessert Zalabia. You have to try the mix chocolate Zalabia platter at Latino, it’s guaranteed to bring you back to Alexandria.
