Grand Travel Worldwide goes Southwest

To pick the best travel destination in the Southwest, Grand Travel Worldwide visited every city in the area. The very first stop was Santa Fe. The city’s legendary reputation attracted attention to go there and have fun. This article is what Grand Travel Worldwide  experienced during the travel.
As you hear about Santa Fe, you might think that it’s a huge city. That’s because of the legend that surrounds this special town. Looking at the numbers, Grand Travel Worldwide found out that the city’s population is less than 73,000 and it doesn’t have a major airport, Albuquerque is the closest big airport. Santa Fe is the fourth largest city in New Mexico and the smallest state capital in the country.
Grand Travel Worldwide visited the stylish galleries that gave the fame to this small town. Santa Fe is proud to have high class dining and it’s famous for its amazing adobe architecture and traces of the Native American and Spanish culture’s confluence. When visiting Santa Fe you must see the organic architecture: combining clay, sand, water and fibrous organic matter like straw or sticks. This is adobe, a durable natural building material perfect for what was needed in this treeless, dry region.
Santa Fe features a plaza that is now a grassy park. Walking the Plaza, Grand Travel Worldwide saw the Palace of Governors, which was constructed soon after the plaza was constructed in the early 1600’s. This is the place where the decisions were made by the Spanish colonial government and by the American territorial governors. Walking through the plaza the traces of these times are revealed.
Grand Travel Worldwide started the tour from the Plaza. It visited the Palace of the Governors and after that crossed the street to visit the Museum of Fine Arts. The architecture of the building catches the visitor’s eye, it is a good example of the Pueblo Revival architecture and it’s a prototype of the city’s characteristic adobe style. It was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century and it holds about 20,000 pieces created by artists who crossed Santa Fe.
Grand Travel Worldwide went to visit every museum: Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, New Mexico Museum – this one features the Spanish Colonial Art galleries – to see masterpieces of the artists who wrote their names into the great book of Santa Fe’s history.

3.) If you are going somewhere with clean drinking water pack a reusable water bottle that clips onto your bag. It is even better if it’s collapsible. You will save money by doing this.

4.) Grand Travel Worldwide also suggests that you bring a bag with wheels because you never know how far you will have to walk when you reach your destination.

Grand Travel Worldwide Provides some Helpful Pet Travel Tips

Grand Travel Worldwide is well aware of the enormous “pet lover” community; we all love our pets and feel sad when we have to leave them with strangers when we start out on our vacation. Nevertheless, with the changing times you can now travel with your beautiful furry pets and a few tips to make this more enjoyable are always helpful.  Many airlines allow your pets to accompany you on the plane and you can ship large pets below in cargo. Moreover, there are also many accommodating hotels and resorts that are pet friendly and offer suitable pet accommodations.

Grand Travel Worldwide members say that before you travel with your pets it is very important that you get a clean bill of health for them. You should take them to a vet for a check up and get them vaccinated according to the requirements of your holiday destination. Some vets prescribe tranquilizers for your pets during the flight so that they may sleep thorough it or at least feel more relaxed but you should never use them without consulting you’re the vet, and are comfortable administering the tranquilizer as it may end up harming your pets

Grand Travel Worldwide advises tourist traveling with pets to put an identity tag on their pets with their name and phone number. You should always carry your pet’s favorite toy and snacks while traveling so they will be busy playing and eating and will not cause trouble during the flight. You also need to notify the airline company that you are traveling with your pet as they only allow a limited number of pets on the flight. You also need to follow the allowable dimensions of your pet carrier so that you abide by the airlines rules and regulations and will not get over any hassle because of it. Pets need to be at least eight weeks old before they are allowed to fly. Exercising your pets and feeding them properly before the flight will help you to travel in comfort as your pet may feel tired out and sleep all through the flight.  Also make certain you have an International health certificate if required, and many times 2 certificates are needed one to enter a country, and another to come home.  It is important to check on all of this to assure traveling with your pet is enjoyable and memorable.

Grand Travel Worldwide Shares Safety Tips When Traveling on Public Transportation

Grand Travel Worldwide says if a country has a pattern of tourists being targeted by criminals on public transport, that information is mentioned in each country’s (Country Specific Information Website) in the section about crime. This is something important to look at when researching your area destination prior to traveling.

Taxis

Grand Travel Worldwide recommends only taking taxis clearly identified with official markings. Beware of unmarked cabs.

Trains

Well-organized, systematic robbery of passengers on trains along popular tourist routes is a problem. It is more common at night and especially on overnight trains.

If you see your way being blocked by a stranger and another person is very close to you from behind, move away. This can happen in the corridor of the train or on the platform or station.

Do not accept food or drink from strangers. Criminals have been known to drug food or drink offered to passengers. Where possible, lock your compartment. If it cannot be locked securely, take turns sleeping in shifts with your traveling companions. If that is not possible, stay awake. If you must sleep unprotected, tie down your luggage and secure your valuables to the extent possible.

Do not be afraid to alert authorities if you feel threatened in any way. Extra police are often assigned to ride trains on routes where crime is a serious problem.

Buses

Grand Travel Worldwide warns that the same type of criminal activity found on trains can be found on public buses on popular tourist routes. For example, tourists have been drugged and robbed while sleeping on buses or in bus stations. In some countries, whole busloads of passengers have been held up and robbed by gangs of bandits.
