Top 5 Dog Sledding Places for a New and Exciting Vacation Idea
It is widely recognized that dog sledding was invented by the Inuit people in what is now Canada thousands of years ago. Early on, a single dog likely pulled a single small load of goods like firewood. Later, dog sledding became more advanced by using teams of dogs to pull larger loads and eventually humans through the Arctic regions of the world. Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Canada Alberta, specifically the Canmore area, offers the opportunity to glide through snow-covered trails in t

8 Things You Need to Prepare Before Seeing the Aurora
The Northern Lights, also known as the aurora borealis, is a natural phenomenon – an incredible light show in the sky that can paint the entire sky with colors of green, purple, and red. It's not something we can see often in many parts of the world, but those lucky enough to see it will remember it for many years to come. Are you planning a trip to see the Northern Lights? Or maybe you're wondering if you should take a chance and visit Iceland? Either way, here are the 8 things you need to prepare before seeing the aurora. What to Wear In case you are not aware yet, aurora can only be seen in the part of the world where it's dominantly cold. Even so, you don't need to dress like the Michelin Man. You can wear three layers and still feel comfortable. If you want to be able to change conveniently between low-temperature and room-temperature environments, consider the onion-style method. Using this method, you only need to wear mainly two types of clothing, the inner and the outer. For the outer, you would want to wear a two-layered jacket, one layer being a waterproof windbreaker while the other layer is made of warm wool. This is to prevent outside wind from entering your body and causing you to catch a cold. Most people may sometimes opt for a neck scarf as well. As for the inside, either a thermal undershirt or even a T-shirt should be enough. Gloves can make your life easier In addition to the above attires, if you want to stay longer in the cold, having gloves is a must. Ski gloves are the more popular choice, but the problem is that the material is sometimes unnecessarily heavy and you may need to take them off every time you need to use your smartphone. That's why you should spend more time looking for the right one. Consider buying a more comfortable and lighter style that enables using your camera or smartphone, so you never miss a moment. Snow chain is unnecessary As long as you are driving on a public road with asphalt, avoiding mountain roads and seasons when it snows heavily, gearing your car with the snow chain is not necessary. Additionally, there are snowplow trucks clearing the snow and spreading salt to maintain the road every day. Right now, Canada and the United States do not allow using snow chains. Snowy road: driving and parking 101 Do not powerfully stomp either your brake or your gas pedal, to prevent your vehicle from skidding. If you ever find yourself skidding a little, slightly moving your steering wheel should be enough to bring you back to balance. This is why it's important to not speed and leave some distance to stop your vehicle safely. If you are driving during November and December when the temperature is usually the lowest, make sure you park your vehicle near engine heaters and connect it to your car to prevent your car engine from freezing. Photography equipment Nowadays, with the improvement of the performance of equipment, you can take pictures of the northern light with some manual-operated micro monoculars or even high-end small cameras, as long as they have good noise control and pure high-sensitivity ISO performance, combined with a tripod and a large aperture to extend the exposure time, most of them can record the graceful dance of the aurora. But keep in mind that aurora is a large-scale natural phenomenon, so it is recommended to use a wide-angle or fisheye lens for shooting. How to take beautiful pictures Taking pictures of the aurora may be a little bit more complicated if you want to capture its elegant movement. When shooting the aurora, most people will use a high sensitivity above ISO 1600 with a large aperture. Generally speaking, the aperture of F4 is sufficient, but don’t forget to adjust the focus to manual, and then turn the focus position to infinity. When you are ready, you can carefully observe the dancing movement of the aurora, and then press the shutter for the long exposure time, usually about 5 to 15 seconds. If the brightness is high and the movement is fast, you may need to close the shutter early. Therefore, when shooting, you should keep your eyes on the situation of the aurora. Sometimes you can close the shutter for a big turning picture, because if the aurora changes too fast, although it's very beautiful to our own eyes, it may be too blurry in the image presentation, and the beauty would not be captured perfectly. Dealing with different brightness Generally speaking, the brightness of the aurora is divided into 10 levels. The camera needs more than 30 seconds to clearly identify brightness level 1 and 2, otherwise it will look like a white smoke, lightly floating in the air. Level 3 and 4 will slowly begin to turn from white to green, appearing in front of our eyes as light green light, which is commonly known as green light. Brightness level 5 and higher will be very dazzling, and the change in color is crystal clear visible, with the light lavender color sometimes emerging in the night sky. If you are extremely extremely lucky, you may have the opportunity to see the aurora with level 8-10 brightness, illuminating the earth. During this moment, quick, take out your iPhone and snap. Keep yourself informed of the weather If you are using iOS, here are the two app you can consider downloading. 1. Aurora - By Roger Moffatt http://goo.gl/cC3Rl4 2. Aurora Forecast - by TINAC Inc http://goo.gl/Mc053j Through those free apps, you can observe the geomagnetic response and radius trend of the aurora, so as to know its predictability. There are 5 levels in total. Although the predictability of the aurora is based on sunspots and geomagnetic reaction, if the weather is not supportive and thick clouds covered the sky, the northern light would not be visible, no matter how exaggerated and beautiful it bursts all over the earth. That's why it's important to look for the aerial condition on satellite cloud images, analyze the route, and plan properly. You can also utilize the aurora forecast website provided by the University of Alaska below. Aurora Forecast | Geophysical InstituteForecasts of auroral activity, updated daily.Geophysical Institute In addition, you should also pay attention to the position of the moon and the change in the lunar phase, as the brightness of the moon will also affect the brightness of the aurora. Many people always visit on days during the new moon where the aurora is less affected by the moonlight. However, it is actually beneficial sometimes to have moonlight. In this way, parts of the landscape can be clearly captured without exposing for too long, but of course the magnificence of the aurora depends on the brightness level of the performance at that time.

Don’t Miss Out on These Top 10 Winter Resorts That Are Perfect for Non-skiers
So, you're not a two-planker or a snowboard shredder. You'd rather not rip down triple black diamonds or gear up for a day in the park. And god forbid you have to ride up a chairlift. And you know what? That's OK. Winter wonderland vacations don’t always have to be about skiing. If you’d like to enjoy a wintertime adventure, make sure to check out these list! 1. Sun Valley, Idaho Sun Valley Resort has been voted the #1 ski resort in North America by SKI Magazine readers two years running. However, this resort offers so much more than the freshly groomed, uncrowded ski slopes for which it is so well known. From luxury accommodations and delectable cuisine offerings to abundant outdoor activities and a world-class spa, everyone in your group can enjoy a perfect vacation at Sun Valley. 2. Keystone, Colorado Keystone is one of the most popular ski resorts for families. Not only does it offer plenty of great skiing, but there is also practically an endless number of other things to do. The resort’s Lakeside Village is home to the largest outdoor ice skating rink in America and the largest Zamboni-maintained outdoor rink anywhere in the world. You can enjoy gliding across the ice while gazing at the soaring snowcapped mountains as well as taking part in a host of other winter activities like horse-drawn sleigh rides, tubing, and even snow biking. Yoga, group exercise classes, and outdoor tennis courts are available year-round, not to mention the numerous options for shopping as well as great spa services too. 3. Whistler Blackcomb - Whistler, British Columbia, Canada Whistler Blackcomb is often ranked among the best ski resorts in the world, but that doesn’t mean non-skiers will be left twiddling their thumbs either. The resort’s village has so much to do, it almost feels like a big city that’s been dropped right into the mountains. There are practically endless shopping opportunities as well as outstanding restaurants and plenty of fun activities too. 4. Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico From delicious New Mexican food to unique art and even a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Taos, New Mexico, has plenty to offer travelers. Taos is a haven for artists, and there are endless galleries and museums to delight any art lover. Stroll through the historic Taos Plaza and you’ll find shops filled with handmade art, pottery, jewelry, and more. After all of the shopping, you can refuel on authentic New Mexican fare featuring traditional green chiles and mole — and grab a drink and enjoy live music at Taos Mesa Brewery. 5. Stowe Mountain, Vermont Known for some of the country’s most beautiful fall foliage and as the “Alpine Ski Capital of the East,” Stowe Mountain Resort attracts the majority of its visitors during fall and winter. The resort and surrounding areas offer plenty of excitement and activities for skiers and non-skiers alike. One of the most popular outdoor activities in Stowe besides skiing is fatbiking. The wide tires on this bike enable you to easily glide through the snowy, groomed trails. Many area shops offer fatbike rentals and can direct you to one of the many free-to-explore trails. 6. St. Moritz, Switzerland Skiers know St. Moritz as one of the best ski destinations in Switzerland and as a two-time host of the Winter Olympics, but the possibilities for non-skiers are pretty amazing too. The active can take advantage of all of the usual off-piste options like snowshoeing, and adrenaline seekers won’t want to miss the heart-pounding ride on the Olympic bob run that comes complete with a professional pilot and brakeman – it reaches speeds of 80 miles per hour. 7. Avoriaz, France Ideal for families who want to split their time between the slopes and non-skiing activities, Avoriaz was previously awarded the “Best Family Resort” at the World Ski Awards. This car-free resort, the only one of its kind in France, offers a relaxed, safe village with lots of restaurants, cafes, and shops that are all accessed by foot or horse-drawn sleigh. 8. Breuil-Cervinia, Italy If you want an ideal destination that’s great for families with non-skiing and skiing members, Cervinia is a great choice. Plus, it’s a lot more affordable than Zermatt, which sits just across the Swiss border. Ski passes, ski rentals, and even coffee are much less expensive here. It also offers kids’ playgrounds and snowparks as well as a natural ice rink that features a bar and sun terrace. 9. Cranmore Mountain, New Hampshire Nestled in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire, Cranmore Resort is known for its family friendly atmosphere and easy to manage size with about 50 runs for all levels. However, the biggest draw may be North Conway, an idyllic New England town perfect in all seasons, but extra charming with a fresh layer of snow. It’s an amazing weekend getaway even if you have no plans to enjoy the slopes. 10. Mohonk Mountain House - New Paltz, New York Located in the Catskills Mountains, this resort offers a variety of non-skiing activities like ice skating, snow tubing, and snowshoeing. You’ll also have the chance to take part in movie nights, watch blacksmith demonstrations, swim in the indoor pool, or join in on daily group exercise sessions. During many winter weekends, a host of other entertainment options are often available too, including tastings, demonstrations, and music.

Here's a Quick Guide to the Updated Travel Restrictions in Northern America and Mexico
Before jetting off on holiday, it's important to know if there are any remaining Covid entry requirements or travel restrictions. For those travelling to top holiday destinations, such as United States and Mexico, there are still some existing entry requirements. Here are the latest advice what you'll need to know about Covid or other restrictions before you go. United States What are the restrictions? To be considered fully vaccinated, travelers must have received their second dose (or one dose for a single-dose vaccine) 14 days before arrival. As of September 12, boosters were not required to be considered fully vaccinated. What's the Covid situation? Since the pandemic began in 2020, there have been roughly 95.3 million total cases and more than 1.05 million deaths in the United States (as of September 12). As of August 25, more than 610.7 million doses of vaccine have been administered across the country. That translates to 184 doses per 100 people. What can visitors expect? The United States is open for places that tourists typically enjoy: national and state parks, museums, restaurants, entertainment venues, theme parks and such. Here's more detailed information on some popular tourist spots: • New York City: The Key to NYC requirements lifted on March 7. Proof of vaccination is no longer required for patrons of the city's indoor dining, fitness and entertainment venues. • Las Vegas: Nevada lifted its indoor mask mandate on February 10. • Hawaii: The Aloha State dropped its statewide mask mandate for indoor settings on March 25. Hawaii's Safe Travels program expired on the same day. • Puerto Rico: The US territory of Puerto Rico no longer requires that domestic travelers provide proof of vaccination or take a Covid-19 test before arrival, according to Discover Puerto Rico. Entry rules for international travel are the same as for the United States. • Disney parks: Both Disney Resorts (California and Florida) are open. Each park follows local regulations regarding Covid. Mexico What are the restrictions? There is no need to take a test before departure or undertake any form of quarantine. Those concerned they might have symptoms should ask for the Sanidad Internacional health organization. Some Mexican states or cities might have tighter restrictions than the country at large based on local conditions. Tourists may want to inquire with their hotels or resorts about any local directives before committing to plans. What's the Covid situation? Mexico had administered roughly 209.7 million doses of vaccine, or 165 doses per 100 people as of August 21. For comparison, the United States has administered about 185 doses per 100 people and Canada has given 234 doses per 100 people.As of September 20, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had Mexico at Level 3 (high) for Covid-19 risk. What can visitors expect? Many hotels and lodging groups offer on-site Covid-19 testing for travelers returning to places that require them. Check with your hotel about on-site testing before you travel. Visitors are likely to find situations differ depending on where in the country they travel, with local restrictions varying. See the Local Resources section of the US Embassy website for specific information. Mexico uses a four-color "traffic-light" system to assess the health safety of each state and set certain restrictions in movement if conditions warrant it. Red is the highest level of caution, and green allows all activities.

I wanted to 100% sure so I tried it again and I’m not sure what it is but it’s not Oribe Straight Away. Unfortunately, I can’t get my money back because I didn’t return on time. Be careful when purchasing product. When I saw the tube was a much darker and different shade of green, I should have returned it!! I will never purchase Oribe products from Amazon!!Lessons learned!!! - Cappy Price: 18

Customer review: We got two of these for our Verizon iPhones (unlocked, Verizon unlocks smartphones 2 months after purchase): iPhone SE and iPhone 12 and it worked fine with one possible exception. As soon as we inserted the card and turn on the phone it connected and we got a text with our local (French) phone number. We had 4G almost all the time, occasionally 3G. While in France we were only in Paris and the immediate vicinity. We each used about 13 GB of data in the 9 days of our trip. We rarely made phone calls using our French number but I tested and it and it did work. - David.B Price: 45.99 3. $29 Ultra Mobile Phone Plan | Unlimited Talk & Text + 6GB 5G • 4G LTE Data (3-in-1 GSM SIM Card) We’re dedicated to creating innovative, authentic, mobile communication experiences by delivering convenient and cost-effective wireless services to those in the United States.

A Prepaid bundle of 12GB data, 3000 voice mins, 3000 texts for 30 days use Customer review: I've ordered these cards many times in the past and they are always some of the most economical. But some things to keep in mind: 1. The data roaming only supports 3G in most countries outside of the UK. (within the UK you get 4G signal and texting/calls). 2. I highly recommend activating the card a day or two before your trip (the cards are valid for 30 days, and usually my vacations are 1-2 weeks max. so I can afford to activate it early). Why? It's never as simple as plug-and-play. - MHA Price: 20.74 5. Visible One Month Prepaid Service & SIM Card | Visible Unlimited Data Plan SIM kit can only be used with a compatible device.

To continue your Visible service at the end of your prepaid month, add a payment method to your account and make your first payment. And with NO annual contracts and NO hidden fees, and unlimited talk, text and data, why wouldn’t you? Customer review: Let's just say at this price the service is great especially if you get the $45 plan for more priority data, However this is Verizon so always check if your phone is compatible before ordering. I do have a s22 ultra I originally purchased from T-Mobile paid and unlocked and the website said it was not compatible when it clearly was. So if you have a flagship device that's unlocked and is compatible with Verizon you won't have any issues - Robert Castillo Price: 30.00 6. $20/Month Mint Mobile Phone Plan | 10GB of 5G • 4G LTE Data + Unlimited Talk & Text for 3 Months (3-in-1 SIM Card) Mint Mobile is the easy, online way to save a ton on wireless. We re-imagined the wireless shopping experience and cut out the retail stores, along with all the associated overhead costs. That allows us to pass on huge direct-to-you savings on unlimited talk, text, and data plans. Genius, right? Customer review: The 10GB for $20, or $60 plan was a good place to start to test my usage rate. I was very satisfied with the service provided. When I activated the plan on my WiFi device I was given a phone number, though this is not a cell phone.
