Travel insurance is very important in case unexpected events occurs. What happens if: You get sick or injured on your trip? Travel insurance is worth getting because travel insurance is what will provide you with medical coverage when you get sick or injured, reimburse you when your camera breaks, your flight is canceled, a family member dies and you have to come home, if lose a bag, or something is stolen. It’s all-purpose emergency coverage and is the single most important thing you should get for your trip (but hope to never have to use).

Motosharing, shared motorbike, rent per minute … call it what you want, a new way of understanding the motorbike in the city, result of new technologies and an intelligent and practical public transport solution like few others. The future of urban motorbikes?
Maybe you do not know yet what we are talking about, since it is not something that has reached all the Spanish capitals. If you are from Madrid you will have seen, for a few months now, that “invasion” of electric motorcycles, some yellow, others white with a huge “e” painted. And if you are from Barcelona, â€‹â€‹of course you know them, because it was the city where this solution came first and where these services abound, in some cases even in its second phase of expansion and consolidation.
How is the motosharing as say rent scooter Barcelona center?
Like any similar car service, everything works thanks to an app on the phone. This helps you to locate a free bike, reserve it and even open it, pick up the helmet from inside your trunk, start and leave.
You will have to sign up for the service through the internet or the app itself when you download it. They will ask you to send photos of your ID or driver’s license, as well as credit card information to pay for the use. In all cases it is easy to sign up and start using it.
All current motosharing services limit the use to the central “almonds” of the cities where they operate. Normally that does not mean you can not go where you want. You can, but to leave the motorcycle parked and finish your rental you have to leave it in that area again.
The prices oscillate somewhat, but in general they are cheaper than other means of transport in the city, since for the same journey you need less time. Now all these companies are still in the process of becoming known and therefore they usually offer promotions for free minutes when signing up or recommending their services to other people. Logically, this has an effect on making it even cheaper at this time. Also, in some cases, “packages” of minutes are sold at a special price, paying in advance. It is thus cheaper and convenient if you are going to use it a lot.

Need to travel to some destination and you need to buy some travel accessories, maybe an organizer or a travel bag? There are a variety of bags and luggage available in the market. If one is in a hurry, the temptation is to pick one that is “okay” or good enough”. Unfortunately, a good enough bag is often not the right bag. Having the wrong bag can mean that the owner will end up overstuffing it if it is too small, or carrying a piece that is too bulky to lug around if the bag is too big.
It is important that a piece of luggage is made sturdily but it is also essential that it is made in a manner that does not make it weigh very much. It is rare that one travels with empty luggage. It is usually stuffed with clothes and other items. A traveler has to worry about weight restrictions at the airport. If he has to contend with meeting weight restrictions and having to drastically limit the amount of things that he brings with him because the luggage starts out heavy enough then that could potentially pose a problem.

Everest base camp trekking tour advices, an incredible travel location. Here are some tips if you plan to tour Nepal.
Manaslu region trekking is one of the hidden gem in the central north part of Nepal. Manaslu towering at 8167m the 8th highest peak of the world is conquered by few and acclaimed as one of the most dangerous 8000er peak. The Manaslu region trekking gives you an opportunity to walk through one of the most varied landscape due to it’s wide altitude variation. The trek starts from Arughat which is at mere 500m and goes to the elevation of Larkya pass at 5143m. You experience the sub tropical climate to the high mountain climate in one trek. At the end of your trek you also traverse through the section of Manaslu circuit trek making it an ace. The journey is full of scenic locations, beautiful villages, rich Tibetan influenced culture and amazing mountain views. The Manaslu region trek can be done directly through the Larkya or visiting the isolated and sacred villages of Tsum valley. It requires a special permit to get in this region which is still far away from the modern civilization. We can see the Buddhist monasteries, Mani walls, prayer flags all along our way. The region is attracting more visitors in recent years. However, the authenticity and the unmatchable panorama is still intact which the visitors get to see still today. Manaslu region trek is certainly a great way to see diverse Nepal and soak in it’s pure form.
Get the Right Gear. There are many parts of your gear that are essential for your trek into Everest Base Camp, and I am not going to go through every piece of gear you need for the trip. Click on the link and view our packing video. I am just going to highlight some of the specific pieces that I found to be essential. First of all, your feet are one of the most important parts of the body to take care of when trekking. Never skimp on footwear when you are going to be walking multiple hours a day, for twelve days in a row; your feet need to be comfortable and dry all the time. Buy a good, sturdy, waterproof pair of trekking boots and make sure that you break them in before you leave for Nepal. Number two, buy yourself a good down jacket, remember a good down jacket needs more down. The fill of the jacket is only the quality of the down. Don’t base your purchase on the fill of the jacket. Remember that every brand and style is different and if you are questioning your down coat, make sure to ask the advice of a professional before the trip as this piece of gear can be essential during the cold nights and mornings on the mountain. Usually the tea houses are quite cold higher up the trail and I found that I wore my down jacket every night during dinner.

Go with an Established Tour Company – You probably think I threw this in here just to give our own company a plug so it’s probably better to relate it with a story. My aunt went on a trek to Everest a few years back and decided not to use our company because it cost $50 more than the independent guide she found. Everything went well until she got back to Lukla where bad weather was limiting the number of flights going out. Our good relationships with the locals meant we were able to get our clients on some of the flights. On the other hand, my aunt was stuck for 2 days and missed her international flight making that $50 look like a lot less of a bargain. She told me this after the fact otherwise I would have tried to help but it’s a good story since it highlights how important having good local relationships is and it’s just one way of many an established company can add value.
