Welcome to Tips-and-travel

On our blog and on our facebook page

The purpose of its creation is precisely to exchange travel tips with friends of the page, the different ‘tips’  we collected through our travels, share experiences, make known places through photographs, in short, everything that could be useful to those planning a trip.
When you go to an agency, we haven’t generally all the time we’d want to ask all to the agent; if you are looking on the net, it is not sure that all what they say is what we will really find at the destination so what is better than our own testimonies?
We  have people with experience in the field to whom we can ask our questions, small local businesses who would like to be known, bed and breakfast, hotels, guest houses, apartments everywhere and we could organize trips, group trips,  tours, etc.
It is a great challenge and we will do our endeavor to make our idea works also with your interaction.
Have fun and feel free to participate and spread the word to friends and family.
Bon divertissement et n’hésitez pas à participer et passer le mots à vos amis et famille.

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Brisbane is the capital and most populous city of the state of Queensland in Australia. Located on the Brisbane River, it is an important cultural and tourist center near the seaside resorts of the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast. Its port contributes to the economy of the country.

Tips

Mount Coot-Tha (a few kilometers from the city center) has a panoramic platform, a planetarium and botanical gardens that are worth a visit. In the maritime center of Moreton Bay (nearby) and on the islands, you can swim, go sea kayaking, snorkel among the coral reefs or rent a boat. You could also make the toboggan in the highest sand dunes in the world. If you want a getaway outside the city (about 30 minutes), Redcliffe (a mini-city) awaits you; well-known for its beaches and for its long bridge that connects the outskirts of the city to the Redcliffe Peninsula. If you prefer the night, visit Fortitude Valley with its bars and discos and its Chinatown.

 

Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

Giant’s Causeway is a volcanic formation located on the coast of Northern Ireland, 3 km north of the town of Bushmills. It is characterized by approximately 40,000 hexagonal columns constituted by the juxtaposition of prisms of cold lava. The whole, eroded by the sea, seems an old pavement with irregular paving that begins at the base of the cliff and disappears in the sea. The cliff has 28 meters. The site belongs to the National Trust which takes care of the maintenance but it has been declared a world heritage of the UNESCO. Various species of seabirds such as petrel, cormorant, guillemot, etc. can be observed.

Tips

You can get there by train from Belfast to Coleraine or Portrush (12-16 km respectively) and from there, take a bus service.

Another option to get there would be to take a car in Belfast and drive for 1h30.

You can also take a guided tour of a day with a tourist agency in the neighboring cities.

Bring sports shoes, comfortable and especially that hold well and do not slip on the rocks.
