The USA is the place to be this summer

I have been lucky enough to visit the USA several times and it never fails to impress me. I fell in love with this vast country on my first trip to New York, each time I have left to fly home I am planning my next USA destination.

Make sure you do your research and have a look at the comparison sites – one good tip is to sign up to as many newsletters from airlines so you don’t miss out on a great bargain.

The numbers behind Celebrity TV Shows

I was recently looking over my finances and seeing how much I would be able to save up for my next holiday, I decided that it was best to take a loan . Whilst I was waiting for a response from Cash Lady about the approval of my loan I started reading about ‘how the other half live.’

I started to read an article that detailed the amounts of money celebrities were paid for the reality tv shows they appear on. I of course knew that they would be earning good money, but I was really surprised to read that some earned over 300,000 pounds! That seems like a huge amount of money for just a few weeks work, especially when you consider that they are not really A-List celebs. read more

Do you know how to chat online?

Do you know how to chat online?

The world of communications has changed with the rise and widespread of the internet, and we are now more connected than ever before. We no longer need to spend money in expensive phone bills to speak to someone who lives on the other end of the planet as we can now do that from our computers and smart devices for the very low cost of an internet data package. This has really changed the dynamics of many aspects of society as we are now able to reach people instantly without effort. One aspect of life that has seen a big change is the world of dating; as we are no longer obliged to go out to meet potential partners. We can now meet new lovers straight from our computer screens; but how does one convey their feelings through a webcam and microphone; and does it really work? read more

4 Things To Do In Lima

If you are heading to Lima for a South America Tour, you are in for a treat, because Lima will most likely become your favourite holiday destination after you visit. It is full of culture and history, that probably cannot be matched by any other South American country. Here are some great things to do in Lima.

Pucllana Temple (Huaca Pucllana)

You really don’t need to go into the jungle or mountains to see historical Peruvian ruins,  you can easily do this in Lima. Most of these ruins  not able to be accessed by the Pucllana Temple  is one of the places that you are actually able to visit. The temple is located in the Miraflores district and it is believed that it was built around 500 AD. There are constant discoveries of artifacts and ancient mummies and this makes it even more interesting, and the site is still being uncovered today. This is a great place at night too, as the temple is lit up at night and gives it an almost surreal look. read more
