Horseshoe Falls with rainbow Niagara

Niagara Falls Canada Camel Travel On Tour

We left Washington D.C. at 7am to make the 478 mile journey to the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls. Our plan was to stop for breakfast after about 2 hours, and we found a fabulous Classic American Diner in Breezewood, Pennsylvania which didn’t disappoint with the food. Each of us had prepared soundtracks to listen to whilst driving, so we have a right mix of music playing along the route, and some impromptu karaoke sessions depending upon the song.…

Washington D.C. Camel Travel On Tour

The drive from New York to Washington D.C. was pretty straightforward, we were into New Jersey from Times Square after a few turns, and passing Newark Airport before we knew it. The New Jersey Turnpike I95 was clear of snow and it was a beautiful blue sky day. We arrived in the capital at dusk after driving 228 miles, so once we’d checked into the Courtyard Marriott at Foggy Bottom, we went for a walk to get our bearings. The…

New York Camel Travel On Tour

Our big adventure for a month in the USA started with 2 nights in New York City. We flew from London Gatwick with Norwegian, it didn’t start so well as we’d booked premium cabin seats and were really looking forward to experiencing their 787 Dreamliner, but was informed that the flight would be serviced by Hifly on an Airbus 330 instead. We still had the 2-3-2 configuration and the flight was extremely comfortable with loads of legroom, adjustable seat and…

The Aspire Lounge and Silver Parking at Bristol Airport

We recently flew from Bristol Airport to The Canaries, so naturally, we checked out the services available for our readers. Silver Parking Bristol Airport As we pulled up to the barrier to the entrance of the Silver parking numerous cameras took photographs of our pre booked vehicle and the barrier swiftly opened to allow us into the car park.  We quickly found a space, made a mental note of the number of it and walked the short distance to the…

A week in Berlin

Our idea of a Christmas in Berlin was in jeopardy on Friday 15th December when we realised that the airline Nikki had ceased trading. We scoured all the various options of how we could connect with Berlin from Lanzarote for our original dates, including connections in UK and the Spanish mainland. Eventually it came down to either bringing our departure forward or cancelling our entire holiday. We rebooked departing from Fuerteventura with Ryanair, taking a gamble that their pilot strikes…

Amrit Berlin Curry

Amrit Restaurant Berlin

We were surprised to find that there aren’t many curry restaurants in Berlin, despite the fact that “curry wurst” can be found absolutely everywhere! But having spent a day in Potsdamer Platz, we pretty much stumbled across Amrit, so we decided to pop in and try it out. It’s located just across the road from the Sony Centre, a 1 minute stroll from The Mall of Berlin and just 600 metres from The Brandenburg Gate, so a visit to that…

Berlin for Christmas

Our next adventure is fast approaching. We decided recently to look at getting away to somewhere cold and festive for Christmas this year, ahead of “peaks”. This is the busy holiday booking period in January & February, when we will be working hard on behalf of our lovely clients, to book their holidays. We wanted an inexpensive week’s holiday including direct flights from Lanzarote for this trip, so after researching the options, we booked to fly to Berlin on Christmas Eve.…
