Our Highlights from a Marysville Vacation

Our Highlights from a Marysville Vacation

Heading out on a Marysville vacation in Australia, we knew that we had some serious highlights from the natural world coming our way. What we didn’t realise was exactly how beautiful all of those highlights would be. This is our list of the top sights we saw – and we would recommend these to anyone else visiting the area! Steavensons Falls This is voted as the #1 thing to do in Marysville, and that’s no surprise at all. Located in its own scenic reserve, Steavensons Falls is a beautiful waterfall, which looks particularly spectacular after a lot of rain. We headed down just after the snowy season had finished, and it was swelled with melt water, which was fantastic. It’s a gentle walk from the car park, and everything is well maintained. Even though you can still see marks from the 2009 bushfire, the falls themselves were spectacular and hugely made up for it. Bruno’s Art and Sculpture Garden If you want a place to stroll around and discover...

Tips for Planning an Extended Holiday

Tips for Planning an Extended Holiday

If you are in a position to do it, taking a longer holiday of a month or more can be a great experience. You can really get to know a place and have an experience almost like living there when you take an extended holiday, and you can benefit a lot from the time out from your normal life. You could make huge progress on learning a language with a period of immersion, make some new friends, and enjoy a totally different way of life for a while. However, planning a longer holiday is different from planning your usual week or two away, especially if you have a limited budget, so it is worth putting in some effort in advance to plan and research where you’ll be going. Finding Reasonably Priced, Well Equipped Accommodation If you are staying for a month or more, unless money is no object, you probably won’t want to stay in a hotel. Not only is this very costly for longer stays, but it also...

Canada’s Hockey Shrines: FlightHub’s Guide To Canada’s Hockey Obsession

If one thing is for sure, hockey is Canada’s national obsession. While Canada has produced hockey greats like Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, and Mark Messier, it is also home to some of the world’s most important hockey landmarks. For fans of the game, these buildings are more than bricks and mortar, they are churches. FlightHub understands this as an online travel agency from Montreal, Quebec. I asked that FlightHub review their top Canadian destinations with obvious hockey roots. With that info, I have put together three major attractions for hockey historians, amateurs and professionals alike.  Maple Leaf Gardens  The Maple Leaf Gardens was built in 1931 to be the home of their main tenant until 1999, The Toronto Maple Leafs.

While parents typically attempt to include the preferences of all their children in the family vacation plans, accomplishing that goal may be a challenge. Shopping online for vacation packages can be a great help in planning since photos and videos can be seen for each package.
