How To Tip In Venice
Tipping is a common practice in most parts of the world. After all, service employees are generally not that well paid, and most appreciate the small token of gratitude for their care. Americans go as far as to tip 20% (it is, believe it or not, their standard!), while us Europeans will generally leave a few extra Euros or pounds in cash, or simply give the change back to the employee.Overview of Rotorua in New Zealand

New York is one of my least liked places that I have visited but the presence there of a high conglomeration of friends and authentic Indian restaurants ensures that I visit it more often than I would otherwise have. It is a slightly more expensive version of Bombay – that’s my impression, after four trips to the Big Apple. So it wouldn’t be quite so hard for you to take it if I said I had little on my agenda except food and socializing on my impromptu winter vacation in the northeast. Traveling from Atlanta, I was hoping to catch some snow and was ready for a ‘white’ Christmas (as in Home Alone 1/2/3 I was told. Note to self: watch them). It ended up being annoyingly warm on most days I was there.Top 5 Attractions in Miami, Florida

The problem of accommodation in London during the summer of 2012, as a result of the influx of tourists coming in for the Olympics, is a well-documented one. With rental and room prices quickly rising, it would be a good idea for anyone interested in going to the city for the year’s prime sport event to book their stay well in advance. And if you happen to be on the fence about which area to take up a room in, you may want to consider staying in a Hyde Park hotel. London’s main park will be the venue of at least three key Olympic events (not to mention a couple of major concerts) over the summer, making the area a perfect option for those who like being in the thick of things.
