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.

MSC Divina

MSC Divina is an MSC Cruises ship, built at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, belonging to the Fantasia class. She was baptized in May 2012 having as godmother Sophia Loren. The ship is quite luxurious with stair steps made with Swarovski crystals, lots of marble, statues here and there and lots of color in the different spaces, especially in the bars. There are a couple of specialty restaurants, Italian cafes, two main restaurants, a large buffet area, shops, a nightclub, a wellness center, a section for children and another one for teenagers, etc.

Tips

If you like personalized treatment, with private spaces (restaurant, swimming pool, etc.), do not hesitate to book your cabin in the Yacht Club sector. You will not regret it.

If you want a quick bite to eat anytime and don’t feel like doing it at the buffet, there is a cafe near the shops where you can choose from a variety of sandwiches or pastries. There is also a counter with a choice of ice creams.

Luxor, Egypt

Luxor is a city located on the right bank of the Nile, in high-Egypt, located about 700 km south of Cairo and approximately 300 km north of Aswan. The site is visited by lots of visitors per year and is one of the most touristic places of the Egypt and constitutes the southern part of Ancient Thebes. The temple of Luxor, linked to Karnak by a dromos with a long line of Sphinxes, was erected in the 14th century BC during the reign of Amenhotep III. Ramses II changed it after adding six monumental statues and two obelisks, one of them is at the ‘Place de la Concorde’ in Paris (it was offered to France in 1831). The inhabitants of Luxor live directly or indirectly from tourism. To see: the temple of Luxor, Karnak, the colossi of Memnon, the temple of Hatshepsut, the Ramesseum, Medinet Habu (famous for the burial of Ramesses III temple) and the Valley of the kings, queens, nobles, and craftsmen.

Tips

If you prefer to go directly to the site without any excursion, you can go by ‘calèche’ or taxi. Do not forget to fix the price before going on.
A great way to explore the region is ballooning. You can do it early in the morning.
If you prefer, you can also do a camel ride in the fields bordering the Nile.
Go out in the evening, a nice walk throughout the Nile is very nice; you will find bars and restaurants to spend a relaxed evening.
If you like shopping, there is a market just down the street from the station, the first part is for tourists but if you continue a little further, you’ll find the real Egyptian market.
