Join the Motorcycle Riding Adventure

When you ride down the road on a motorcycle, life takes on new meaning.  Everything around you is tangible and you are a part of it.  Unlike driving in a vehicle with the windows rolled up and the air conditioning on, you get a sense that you and the wind are one; you and the road are one.  And, thus you are.

There’s a new found feeling of freedom as the wind dances past your body.  There is no separation between you and the open road air and everything that is a part of it.

A never adventure awaits you on a motorcycle if you choose to be  for bikes. Check with your local DMV to find out what their requirements are for you to register.

 

Meanwhile for those women out there riding motorcycles, we’d love to speak to you.  Please contact us here are WMTS.

A Little Bit About London

 

Our world is an interesting place.  Here some information about London in case you are thinking about traveling there.

 

o       Tea was brought back from China by Dutch merchants in 1658.  Tea time became a national tradition.

 

o       The Monument commemorating the Great Fire of London in 1666 is the tallest isolated stone column in the world. It rises to 62 m (202 ft) on Fish Hill, 62 m away from where the fire began, in a bakery in Pudding Lane.

 

o       St Paul’s Cathedral was the tallest building (111 m/365 ft) in London from 1710 to 1962. It is the second largest church in the UK after Liverpool Cathedral. Its dome is the third largest in the world, and one of the highest. The towers of the cathedral contain the second largest ring of bells in the world. St Paul’s also possesses Europe’s largest crypt, where are buried, among others, Sir Chritopher Wren (the architect who rebuilt the City of London after the Great Fire), the painters Joshua Reynolds and J.MW. Turner, Lord Nelson, and the Duke of Wellington.

 

o       Founded in London in 1670, the Hudson’s Bay Company is the world’s oldest chartered company.

 

o       Founded in 1694, the Bank of England was the first privately owned national bank in any country.

 

o       The Bethlehem Royal Hospital is world’s oldest institution to specialize in mental illnesses. It was founded in 1247.

 

o       The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, one of the Livery Companies of the City of London, was formed by a Royal Charter in 1631 and remains the world’s oldest horological institution. The company possesses the world’s oldest collection of clocks and watches.

 

o       The world’s first public street lighting with gas was installed in Pall Mall, London in 1807. In 1812, the London and Westminster Gas Light and Coke Company became the world’s first gas company.

 

o       The world’s oldest public zoo opened in London in 1828.

 

o       Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’s Communist Manifesto was first published (in German) in London’s Liverpool Street by the German printer J.E. Burghard in 1848.

 

o       The world’s first underground public lavatory opened in 1855 under the pavement next to the Bank of England.

 

o       Established in 1890, the City and South London Railway (C&SLR) was the first deep-level underground railway in the world. It was also the first major railway to use electric traction. It became the Northern Line of the London Underground.

 

o       Established in 1902, Ealing Studios in West London are the oldest continuously working film studios in the world.

 

o       At the the northern end of London Bridge, Adelaide House was the tallest office block in London at 43 m (141 ft) when it was completed in 1925. It was designed in a discreet Art Deco style with some Egyptian influences and was the first building in the City to employ the steel frame technique. It was also the first office building in the UK to have electric and telephone connections on every floor as well as a central ventilation system.

 

o       The Museum of London retraces the history of London from Prehistoric times to the present day and is the largest urban history museum in the world.

 

o       The Shard, a 72-storey skyscraper near London Bridge, is the tallest building in the European Union, standing at a height of 309.6 metres (1,016 ft). It was inaugurated on 5 July 2012, three weeks before the London Olympics.

 

o       The ArcelorMittal Orbit, a 115-metre-high (377 ft) sculpture and observation tower in the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, is Britain’s largest piece of public art. It is intended to be a permanent lasting legacy of London’s hosting of the 2012 Summer Olympics.

 

o       London also ranks third worldwide for the number millionaires (after Tokyo and New York), and third for the number of billionaires (after New York and Moscow).

 

 

London saw huge immigration from the Caribbean, India and parts of the Middle East at the turn of the 20th Century, continuing right up to the modern day. Such was the scale of the influx that many people managed to retain their language and accents over the generations. Over 350 languages are spoken around London (100 more than in New York) and Black and Asian children outnumber white children in London by 2 to 1. Similarly, there is a huge range of religions. In recent times new immigrants have begun to arrive from Eastern Europe and China.

 

 

If you are traveling from America to England, you will find that some words have different meanings.  “Elevator” is “lift”. It’s your “mobile”; not your “cell phone.” You ask the location of “the toilets”, “loos”, “ladies'” or “gents'”, not “the restroom”. The “tube” or the “underground”, not the “subway”. “Subway” is what Londoners call a walkway under the street to get from one side to the other, or a fast food chain.

 

 

England’s maritime climate means that rain could fall at any time – and it does – but day upon day of rain and grey skies aren’t common in London. But again, expect the unexpected: the sky could darken and rain could pelt down in buckets for five or ten minutes then the sun may come out.

London’s Underground is a massive system that carries millions of passengers a day. What may be unexpected for some visitors is that it can be hot on Tube trains and in stations at any time of year, not just summer. Those Tube trains will be crowded at morning and evening peak hours.

And in opposition to this is the question of air conditioning. It’s not as ubiquitous as elsewhere in the world, especially in London hotels. But many of those hotels offer fans in guest rooms, and with windows that open a bit of cross ventilation is nice on warm days. The London Overground has air conditioned train carriages; Tube trains are a work in progress.

Are you intrigued?  If you are ready to go, finding hotels in London is pretty easy on the internet these days.

By choosing an excursion from the following top 3 list you will give a great gift to the one woman that has never left your side: your mother or mother-in-law.

 

Friends And Family Excursion

A friends and family gift will prove to be an excursion that any mother or mother-in-law will be thankful to receive.

 

Pampering Excursionspa

A pampering excursion, such as a trip to a spa, will allow them to recharge their batteries and it will show just how much you appreciate them. There are many different types of pampering excursions to choose from. It doesn’t matter if you choose a short excursion such as a day trip or one that involves an overnight stay.

Woman On The Way – Traveling Tips by Nicole

 

The independent woman usually enjoys her single travels and vacations.  Sometimes you need to get away from work or exhaustion and being overloaded at a stressful working environment. There is no doubt that such a woman would prefer to get her needed dose of relaxation and peaceful rest in a quiet, but luxurious, convenient place. Such a lady will take advantage of spending time on her own in the best way and restoring her energy.  She will return to the office recreated and refreshed, with a shining smile again.

There are plenty of tourist offers for such a modern lady, but there are also several travel tips she must consider after making the plan to go on the way by her own. If you are such an independent female, take note of the following travel tips.

A woman on the way, who is traveling alone, especially in foreign countries, should first make a good, solid plan for her trip and holiday. Good organization is always the key to the perfect relaxation and nice memories. Bad memories and troubles can be caused by two main things: first, you may be overtaken by unpredictable circumstances, second, the inappropriate behavior and the insufficient, awkward responses to a foreign culture or the attendants may lead to troubles and bad consequences. As a personal traveling adviser and as someone truly concerned about women’s safety we strongly recommend you to spend your vacation by a strict plan you make in advance.

Choose the best airplane lines and find something affordable, but secure among all of the vacation rentals you were recommended. Find a nice suitcase with wheels, so you can carry your baggage seamlessly. Also, when traveling on your own, it could be a good idea to take some reading with you in order to avoid other people’s attention and perhaps giving the perception of loneliness and lack of orientation. Such a perception can make you a target for in the eyes of those with ill will, like thieves and robbers. They look for travelers’ vulnerability.  Make sure you are conscious and aware at all times and keep your luggage secure.

In terms of lodging, whether it’s a hotel or a vacation home rental, we strongly recommend you find something with 24-hour security.  As soon as you get in the hotel or guesthouse, meet the staff. It could be useful for you to know the surrounding people in case you have a problem or questions, especially about the tourist destination you have chosen. The area and the resort you have selected should be studied in advance.

 

Educate yourself about the cultural and the religious status of the country where you are going to stay. Some nations do not appreciate the look of a woman that is walking alone on the streets, especially in tight and short clothes. Learn what behaviors and actions are inappropriate and unacceptable.  And, always carry yourself in a professional, ladylike manner.

For the alone woman on the way, we also recommend that you pack your baggage really carefully and reasonably. Make sure you have taken everything necessary. Naturally, there are stores and malls anywhere in the world, but going alone shopping may not sound to as a good idea during your relaxing vacation on a seaside resort, for instance.

Last, but not least, learn about the documents and papers you would need carefully to avoid unexpected surprises at the border documents check.
