Top 3 New Years Destinations: London

londonAre you ready to take a hop across the pond? I know that you are! It will be a worthwhile trip as well, because London ranks number three in the top New Years destinations for this year.

Right from the London Eye, there will be a spectacular display of fireworks. You will be able to see them from balconies and rooftops all over the city — but if you want the very best vantage point, you need to get a spot on the Westminster Bridge, or else get a seat on the north bank of the famed River Thames.

Just after Big Ben rings in the midnight hour, the fireworks start and last until a quarter after.

Do not worry, though; the pubs, the clubs, and the fabulous restaurants stay open long, long after that!

Top 3 New Years Destinations: Sydney

sydneyNow, it might surprise you to know that watching the ball drop down under is a big deal, but it is indeed. Sydney, Australia is actually a very exciting place to spend New Years Eve.

In fact, it is considered the very first city in the entire world to ring in the New Year. It is thus no wonder that they do it in such a big way. Their dazzling display of fireworks is thought to be the biggest one in the whole world and it does not end until a quarter after midnight.

The party does not stop there, though. You can find various big time celebrations rocking out until dawn, at least.

And the best vantage point for those fireworks? Well, anywhere on the Sydney Harbour Bridge will do, but your best bet is to be in a boat right in the harbor.

Top 3 New Years Destinations: NYC

nycNew Years is coming up and many people are asking, where are the best parties at?

Well, it goes without saying that the number one hot spot is New York City. You ain’t seen a New Years Eve celebration until you have seen the one that goes on in Times Square. Seeing the ball drop there, whether in person or on TV, is like a tradition and people from all over the globe clamor for a chance to see it happen live and in color.

For over one hundred years, Times Square has been the place to ring in the New Year — and the party does not stop when the ball drops, people.

To really ring in the New Year, this is where you want to be — though good luck getting near the Square. You have to start early!

Flying In Luxury — How To Do It: 3

first class seats.previewSo private jets and planes are super nice but for those of us that can not afford those … there is something that you can do to ensure that you do fly in the lap of luxury and that is simply upgrading your seat to first class.  I can tell you that flying first class is definitely the way to go if you have a really long trip.

This little picture here?  Well, that is just one plane that has went above and beyond for their passengers in first class.  They offer up TV, meals, liquor – everything that you need to get through the flight, especially if it is a longer flight overseas.

First class is not usually all that expensive to upgrade either.  $50.00 most of the time and that really makes it affordable for everyone!

LufthansaInterior_wideweb__470x336,0It is pretty obvious that when you are rich, you are not only looking for the very best in the way of hotel rooms, but you also want the very best when you are flying as well.  Well – I am telling you that flying can be luxurious and there are many ways that you might be able to afford it.

One of the first things that you need to think about, especially if you are flying overseas about how comfortable you want to be; comfort in a plane is almost a joke.  You have people all around you and most likely you are going to get stuck on a plane with a screaming kid … that is why a private jet is the best way to go.

This picture is just one example of how a private jet can look and honestly, it is by far the most comfortable way to fly.  More in the next blog!
