Emotional Support Animals

The benefits of service dogs are undeniable and improves the quality of life with those in need of such support. However, an emotional support dog is not the same, legally, as a registered service dog. This can cause issues in what hotels and other businesses allow them to do.

Now, emotional support animals are perfectly likely to be a part of prescribed treatment plan. Unfortunately, this does not extend the protections and privileges of a service dog to an emotional service dog. A prescription is not enough, and ADA guidelines define a service animal quite clearly to include Guide Dogs or Seeing Eye® Dogs, Hearing or Signal Dogs, Psychiatric Service Dogs, sensory signal dogs or social signal dog, and Seizure Response Dogs. It defines the duties and capabilities of these animals very clearly, all of which can be found on the ADA website.

What does this mean for staying in a hotel with an emotional support dog?

Emotional Support Animals

Emotional support animals are simply not covered under the ADA or most state laws. Because of this, few hotel companies extend the same protections to emotional support dogs as they do to service dogs. If there is a complaint about your dog (and all too often there are, even if the dog wears a vest and even if the dog is a registered service animal), there will be no legal protection and the hotel can refuse to accommodate you, even if your emotional support animal is a part of your medical treatment.

The best solution to this issue is to find a pet friendly hotel. Pet friendly hotels are perfectly happy to accommodate both you and your dog, whether they are an emotional support animal or not. Many of these hotels provide rooms specifically meant to accommodate animals. They furniture in the room might be more ruggedized, or at least prepared to deal with animal-induced wear and tear. The hotel will note, either in their internal documentation or on a sign for the door, that there is a pet in the room.

Often, the hotel will require you to remain in the room while the maid cleans to comfort your dog in case your dog doesn’t care for strangers. Don’t take offense to this, as it is an issue of liability for the hotel and the only way they can offer pet friendly room without legal issues.  Watch a movie or read a book while the maid cleans and enjoy the chance to take a break with your dog.

Some hotel chains that offer pet friendly rooms include the Red Roof Inn, Extended Stay America, Best Western, Westin Hotels, and Sheraton. Several of these companies have weight limits. 40 pounds is common, while a few offer accommodation for dogs up to 80 pounds.  It’s always wise to check on a hotel’s website or even call the front desk to see if they are pet friendly. Make sure you inform the hotel during booking that you are bringing your emotional support dog.

A number of hotels that offer pet accommodation will not allow you to leave your dog alone in the room. This is for a lot of reasons, among them damage to the room and possible sanitation issues.

Other hotels ask that you place your dog in a crate when you leave the room, so be sure to bring one when you travel. This is often more comfortable for the dog, as it gives them a place of safety to go in an unfamiliar environment. If you plan to leave your dog alone in a room and the hotel allows it, make sure you take them out to relieve themselves before you leave and give them a toy to chew on while you’re gone. Take care of your dog and your dog will take care of you!

Sri Lanka: Dogs, Cats and a Holiday

These days I am spending another holiday in Sri Lanka. Although I planned few short trips to Indonesia and Thailand, finally we had to fly to Sri Lanka at the end of October due to a family emergency. This is earlier than our usual year-end Sri Lanka holiday. Also this time we don’t travel around the country, instead we stay with parents. While spending time at home I also get opportunity to talk with neighbours and to spend the time in Sri Lankan way.

Sri Lanka: Dogs, Cats and a Holiday

So, here come dogs and cats. Truly they are not from my parents’ home. But, in Sri Lanka, it is common to see such cats and dogs in many homes. Sometimes these cats look lazy and sleep everywhere freely. Dogs look lazy and sleepy, but they start barking even for a really soft sound.

Sri Lanka: Dogs, Cats and a Holiday
This cat sleeps whole day and his favourite place is the kitchen of it’s home.

Instead of a travel destination, I hope you like to see some of the cats and dogs from Sri Lanka in different actions!These are captures from Sri Lankan homes.But,if you really love to watch other animals and wildlife in Sri Lanka,there are many places to visit including Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage.

Sri Lanka: Dogs, Cats and a Holiday

These photos are just to show lifestyle generally forgetting hygiene and other such things.

Visit the Rocks

The Rocks is a network of Victorian streets with a flurry of pop-up shops and creative street performers, which makes it a hit destination for tourists of all sorts.

Sydney experiences

Get wet at the beach

We mean that in the literal sense. And hey, admit it. Sydney’s beaches are one of the reasons you’ve actually come this far. Kick off with a splash at one of Australia’s – the world’s most famous beach – Bondi! The beach flaunts amazing waves, powdery sand, and fantastic sun, Dry off on a sun-soaked stroll along Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk. Take a break at the fantastic Tamarama Beach. After, keep walking until you reach the saltwater baths at the far end of the half-moon shaped Bronte Beach.

Stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens

The amazing outdoors is one of Australia’s most prized treasures, and Sydney has nature right at its centre. The Royal Botanic Garden is found in the city centre, a perfect and shady place for strolling and gawking at lovely fauna and flora.

Learn how to surf

The tourist scene in Sydney is a fantastic experience all year round. The most touristy area is on Bondi beach.

Jurong Bird Park

Most of the times we experience that the photos don’t look beautiful when we transfer those images to the computer! Images don’t look vibrant as they were in the camera. They look dull and dark. This is where you need to play with the brightness of images. In any photo editing program, you will find the tools for brightness and contrast adjustments. By adjusting the brightness you can improve the photo exposure giving a good look for your images.

2. Crop the images

Jurong Bird Park

Composition is one of the important factors for a good photo. If you think the photo need some adjustment in composition, one of the ways to do that is by slightly cropping your images. This will zoom the images and you will be able to improve it to the better.

3. Adjust and Balance the saturation

It can be a cloudy day or a rainy day that you couldn’t capture the images with proper lighting. You may not find the beautiful and vibrant colours in your landscape photos that you experienced in your trip. I know this is a sad moment when the photos look dull. But, you can easily adjust saturation of photos and give some new look for your images.

But, be careful when you adjust the saturation. Sometimes, your photos will look artificial if you don’t balance the saturation properly. So, always adjust saturation with care and improve the quality of colours.

napa-valley

When you think of Napa Valley, the wine country, it doesn’t really scream “family vacation” does it? You’re more likely to think of a romantic getaway than a summer break. But here’s why you’re wrong and how to explore the beautiful region with children in tow. You may be surprised just how family friendly Napa Valley really is.

What to See

If you’re thinking about visiting soon, book now for the end of November. Napa Valley is the most beautiful in the late fall, when the fields turn to rich hues of burnt orange, vibrant red and magnificent purple, depending on the exact variety of grape. You can enjoy the views from a hilltop winery or get immersed amongst the color for some beautiful vacation snaps. It’s not all in the nature though, the region also boasts unique architecture in some of the wineries like Darioush and Castello Di Amorosa.

Top 3 European Wine Destinations

Turn sight seeing in to a fun activity for everyone by taking the tour on bikes and going the scenic route along the Silverado Trail. This small highway winds up the valley and is prettier and less busy than the typical highway 29 route.

What to Do

You may think that wineries aren’t the ideal place to take kids, but there are a few in the region that cater for just that. They can enjoy the ropeway at Sterling Vineyards or feed the fish at Robert Sinskey Winery. The Napa Valley Wine Train even has family friendly BBQ nights on their open-air Silverado Car.

Napa Valley things to do

Napa Valley is also a foodie’s paradise and something the whole family can get on board with. Grab a bite at recommended Brasswood Estate in St. Helena, offering a bakery and a bar + kitchen with an Italian-style menu.

When you’re not eating or drinking, take advantage of the many hiking trails in the hills, or make a trip to Calistoga’s public pool which, in the summer, caters to families. It includes a kids pool, complete with fountains and a diving board – what more could you want? Small communities in the area also have some amazing playgrounds, so you’re never far away from a boredom busting idea.

Where to Stay

When it comes to accommodation, make sure to pick a family friendly place. A lot are aimed at romantic stays and honeymooners, so rather than going for a cute B&B, choose a larger hotel. A pool is an obvious bonus, allowing you time to relax, have a drink and finally get round to reading that novel. For example, the Marriott Hotel in the heart of the valley offers an outdoor pool, whirlpool and even a fire pit to relax around at the end of the day.

If you still think you’d rather visit Napa Valley without the kids then by all means, hand them over to the grandparents and book a romantic getaway for two. But plenty of kids grow up here, and why should yours miss out on seeing the beauty of the world?

Frangipani-Royal-Palace-hotel-review-Phnom Penh-Cambodia

Exotic destinations, inviting food choices and peaceful moments are the rewards of traveling. Magical destinations and friendly people we meet make remarkable moments in our life.

Yes, Traveling around the world is really interesting and exciting. Travelling allows us to find new places and it also allows us to explore other cultures. However wherever we travel or whatever comfortable places we stay, finally we come to our home sweet home. So, we can’t forget having relaxing and comfortable time at home from waking up in the morning to sleeping at the night time. During this few hours of daily life we struggle with life challenges, but whatever the life is we need a good rest at night to face the life on the next morning. This is why having a comfortable bed is always important!

But, having a comfortable bed doesn’t mean that you need a luxury looking bed frame covered with luxury bedding. Instead you need to buy a good quality mattress and comfortable pillows to help you a good sleep. Of course, you can easily arrange a luxury looking bedroom in a budget and enjoy a comfortable sleep same like you dream in luxury resorts.

3 things you need to know before buying your mattress
It is easy to arrange your bed room to like a hotel room when you plan it!

With that in mind, I thought of sharing this post which I like to share the 3 things you need to know before buying your mattress. When you own a good mattress, it is easy to convert your room into a luxury looking comfortable bedroom same as a hotel room.

What are the 3 things you need to know before buying your mattress? Answer is simple. Before any other things such as price, brand, durability and reviews you need to check Firmness, size and material of the mattress before you decide. Why Firmness, size and material are important things to consider before buying your mattress? Here are the reasons.

Check Firmness

Firmness is really important when you buy a new mattress. But always don’t select your mattress by reading the manufacturer’s label which says extra firm, medium firm or firm. Such measures can be different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Instead, test the mattress for it’s comfortless. Most mattress shops allow testing before you buy. If you buy mattress online, check the recommendations before you buy any mattress. By reading consumer reviews, you can always get some idea about the mattress quality and firmness. While a firmer mattress is not the best option to select, a softer is not good either. Therefore select your mattress that is firm and comfortable for a good sleep.

3 things you need to know before buying your mattress

Check the Size  

You know that already. You need to check the size of the mattress before buying. You need to fit your mattress to your bed frame. But, if you think in this way, it is wrong!

Instead of matching a mattress size to your bed frame, think of having a comfortable sleep. If you look for mattress that can fit two people, you need to buy at least Queen Size. If you look for family bed, it can be King size. In this way you will have a good sleeping space than squeezing. You can easily refer to a mattress size chart to know the dimensions of your mattress that you need to buy. Also don’t forget the fact that you need to buy a mattress that is longer than the tallest person who is going to sleep or share the bed.

Material of the mattress

You will find that there are mattresses made of different materials available in the market. It can be a foam mattress or mattress with spring and coils. You need to check the material and quality of the materials before you buy. When it comes to material of the mattress, many people forget to check the material of the mattress cover. They only check the layers and foam inside the mattress. However, don’t forget the material of the mattress cover too as that will serve as the outer layer of the mattress.

When you pay more attention to these factors such as Firmness, size and material, then you can easily select a good quality mattress that is also durable. Don’t forget that most people spend most of their lifetime on bed. Having a good sleep is vital for a healthy life. It is important to get the sleep you need. So, the mattress has a really important task on our health.

Do you change your mattress after few years of using? May be it is time now for you to think of the mattress or change it if needs!

Auto Travel Made Easy

During his work in the travel industry in Montenegro, our founder Kirill Antoshin became increasingly aware of the rise in the number of tourists looking to rent a car. He was called on to assist many people in working their way through this process and noticed the lack of sufficient resources for auto travel. He decided to remedy this problem, and in 2010 he established Auto Travel Company.

Our business operates with the goal of assisting the auto tourist in his travels through Montenegro. Besides providing extensive information and advice about local auto travel, we operate as a nerve center for car rental. Our website auto-travel.me compiles the rental offerings of numerous companies.

Auto Travel Made Easy

Our service stands head and shoulders above our competitors. As we seek to serve our clients, we try to streamline and personalize the car rental process. We are the only service which offers three features that resolve commonly heard complaints from travelers:

  • The ability to choose a specific car rather than merely a “class” of car.
  • The finalization of a reservation immediately rather than after hours of delay.
  • The payment of only part (15-20%) of the total charge when booking, rather than paying in full.

Our goal is to relieve the stress of renting a car so that you can keep your mind on your trip and not on the problem of transportation.

We also try to make the procedure of picking up your car as simple and straightforward as possible. This begins when we bring your car to you. Your rental manager will meet you at the airport or another predetermined location and take you to your car. Together, you will carefully inspect the car and record any flaws in the condition. After signing the rental agreement, you will pay the remainder of your fee, and then you are free to explore the glories of Montenegro.

We even give you detailed information about all the aspects of traveling in Montenegro with children.

If you plan to travel around Montenegro by car, there is a lot you will need to prepare. We will help you to get started on your holiday with ease and comfort.
