Flight By British Airways Made My Trip More Enjoyable

Last summer, I decided to enjoy my vacation through a pleasure trip to New York, which is 1149 Km away from Chicago, the US city where I am staying currently. I have great interest for seeing the famous places and New York is known to house quite such places, where the visitors can be acquainted with the historical facts and features. So I looked on the internet and booked my air ticket and hotel accommodation, to make my trip comfortable.

I chose to stay in a 2 Star hotel of New York, named Villa 121 Guest House that is conveniently located very close to most of the tourist attractions of this city and well connected to all other parts through the 125th Street underground station, which is only 5 minutes walking distance from this hotel. The room was decorated with bright colored upholsteries and comfortable wooden furniture, even in its separate sitting area. The air-conditioned room had a satellite TV, refrigerator, microwave oven, iron and hair dryer. The attached bathroom had all the necessary toiletries and bath robe.

Comfortable in-flight services provided by British Airways

My air ticket was booked in the Economy Class of British Airways, a popular and reliable airline in the world, as it is the flag carrier of the UK. I loved all the in-flight facilities provided by this airline, during this short journey of only around 2 hours.

  • The large seats of the Economy Class cabin were very comfortable, with seat pitch of around 32 inches and arranged in convenient alignment. The passengers were also given extra privacy, if asked for a premium service.
  • The passengers were welcomed with complimentary fruit juices or hot beverages, after boarding the plane. We were also offered tasty snacks and refreshed drinks as part of in-flight meal service.
  • The passengers were offered a bar system, where any of them could take any alcoholic drink, along with a light snack.
  • There were personal screens attached before each seat, to enable the passengers to enjoy various entertaining programs, as part of in-flight entertainment system of this airline.

Great experience of visiting the prominent New York tourist destinations

In New York, my first aim was to see the world famous Statue of Liberty, whose pictures I had seen earlier in books. So I went to Battery Park, in southern part of Manhattan Island, just opposite to New York Harbor. There was Castle Clinton in this park area, from where I got ferry service that took me to the colossal Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. I was awestruck to see this copper statue of Roman Goddess Libertas, with a torch in her lifted hand and a tablet on the other hand. The broken chain at the feet of this statue made it an icon of national independence of this country.

Next day I went to see Central Park that was very close to my hotel. This urban park is notable for housing several points of attractions; like a red granite obelisk called Cleopatra’s Needle, seven artificial lakes, a zoo, an aquarium and 29 magnificent sculptures. I also visited Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is the biggest art museum of this country and situated adjacent to Central Park. I felt so excited to see the 17 departments of this museum, featuring numerous objects of arts from ancient period till date.

Whenever I will have another chance of visiting New York in future, I will surely buy air tickets from this airline only.

A Trip To Trivandrum – Visiting The Most Famous Places Here

Something that in today’s modern world is a critical thing to remember, is to know when to take some time off from the tensions of the workplace and kick back a little. For a disturbingly large fraction of employees today in the corporate workroom, life has turned out to be considerably different to how it was in earlier years. In our busy schedules today, we tend to easily ignore the fact that from time to time, we have to give ourselves with some well-deserved leisure time to relax ourselves both physically and mentally, which is vital to a good life. Recently, I decided to take a vacation to visit Trivandrum and many of the famous places in and around the city.

I had never visited Trivandrum before, and was excited to visit the city, which is the capital of Kerala state, known as “God’s own country”. As it was a new place that I had never visited before, I knew that the visit would be a lot of fun, as I have always loved exploring new places. I was also very keen on trying out some of the cuisine of Trivandrumas the Malayali cuisine is quite famous. Thus, I was quite excited about this trip and booked my train well in advance.

Booking My Train To Trivandrum

There are a lot of trains available from Chennai to Trivandrum as both are geographically close and also important cities in South India. I had a lot of different choices available to me for trains, and I finally made the choice to book the Bangalore Express (06347) after doing some online research and checking details of all of the best options. There weredecent facilities on the train and I had a comfortable good trip. The train maintained its schedule well too.

After looking at many of the choices available, and comparing important factors such as services, amenities, room tariffs, location, and other things, I finally chose The Samrat Hotel in Trivandrum. This is a good 3-star hotel with decent facilities and I had comfortable stay here. Some of the best things about the hotel are:

  • Great location near Padmanabhaswamy Temple.
  • Rooms were rather basic but spacious and well-furnished.
  • Other facilities here include Wi-Fi internet, swimming pool, gym, bar, restaurants, and a lot more.

I was eager to visit 3 of Trivandrum’s most famous places, which are Padmanabhaswamy Temple, Varkala Beach, and Napier Museum. The Padmanabhaswamy Temple is a Hindu temple that I visited to pay my respects, and it was a great place. Varkala Beach is an excellent beach in Trivandrum which is clean as well. Napier Museum was my favourite among these three, and I spent a lot of hours at this museum of art and natural history.
