Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy……the list goes on and on. Everyone knows Disney means something. Fun, joy, happiness, magical, adventure…..any word that can describe Disney is positive. But why?
I have to say the marketing scheme of Disney is really amazing. When you look at the promotional videos they have and I bet you want to try it yourself. It’s the atmosphere, the way how they train their staffs and the way how they market really make this Disney effect. I don’t see any child who doesn’t want to visit Disneyland. Of course everyone likes Mickey and Minnie but they continuously create new characters like those in Frozen and Cars can keep children focus on their products.
You probably want to visit one of the Disneyland in the world but you know there are a lot more things you can do to experience this Disney effect? Disney cruise is a very good way to treat yourself everything Disney for a few days. The destinations include Alaska, Bahamas, Caribbean, Europe and Panama Canal. If you are heading to Hawaii, let’s try the Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa. You can experience the Hawaiian tradition and culture but with a touch of magic from Disney. What about Adventures by Disney? Not a lot of people have heard of this but I can tell you that probably is one of the best Disney experience outside of Disneyland. It’s a private tour service provide by Disney. Traveling with Adventures by Disney provides culturally immersive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that prove all vacations are not created equal. With the Disney banner, they provide insider access for different places. The tours offer Guests access to extraordinary opportunities that aren’t available to the general public. It’s like having a “backstage pass” to the world! That include a VIP tour to the Vatican Museum, private screening at Lucasfilm Headquarters, exclusive dinner at Edinburgh Castle and many more.
Last but not least, there are 6 Disneyland locations around the world. Besides the Disneyland (2 parks) in LA, Disney World (4 parks and 2 water parks) in Orlando, there are Disneyland in Paris (2 parks), Tokyo (2 parks), Hong Kong and Shanghai is the latest addition to the Disney family. Anyone will bring your family a lot of memories.

Spain is also one of my top destination. I would choose Barcelona instead of Paris, London or Rome if you can only visit one European city.
It’s sad to hear the terror attack out at Las Ramblas few weeks ago but we are not afraid, isn’t it? Terror attack is everywhere now. We can’t predict where and when does it happen. This won’t stop us travelling anywhere.
Spain is very unique in many ways. The architecture there is so different that you see arts everywhere on every corner on the street. You don’t really need to see Gaudi to wow you but the buildings, the parks, the alley…… they all have their own character. However, Gaudi’s work are stunning and they is a must when you visit Barcelona.
Tapas! How can I skip tapas when I talk about Spain. There are so many different kinds to choose and you will definitely find some which you love. Spanish can have tapas anytime of the day which I think is brilliant! How about Paella? There are so many restaurants which make good Paella around the tourist area and that’s a must try. I love Las Ramblas, not just the food there but also by looking at it. It is so colourful and you feel the energy around you.
It’s very hard for people from North America to understand the transportation network in Europe because ours really sucks. In Europe, you don’t really need to worry about how are you going to go from point A to point B. The public transportation network is so mature that most people are taking public transportation. You don’t need to rent a car when you go around places.
Do you think it takes long time to fly to Europe? Actually it only takes 7h45m to fly from Toronto to Barcelona. It’s even faster than to go to Hawaii! Let’s explore Spain this fall. Inquire air + hotels or tour packages (Barcelona is also a big cruise port!) at http://www.travelgaga.ca
JAPAN JAPAN JAPAN! No doubt Japan is my favourite place to travel. I forget how many times I’ve been to the country of the rising sun but I still want to go back. It seems like there’s a piece of magnet attached to this place and me. So, what’s so special about this place? I think Japan is having a very special culture. They teach their kids from early age about being polite, being clean and being considerate. Probably Japan is the only country that you can’t talk on your mobile phone inside the train. In this way, you won’t be disturbing others while on the train. Japanese restaurants probably is the only place which require you take off your shoes when you go in so that you have a very clean environment when you dine. Examples can go on and on and on.
Another reason why I fall in love with this country is you know they do have the newest technology but on the other hand, they do keep their traditional side. The shrine, the garden, the architecture….. you can find the newest thing inside the oldest structure. So you get to see the latest but you can still get to know the oldest side of this country.
I can’t skip the food in Japan when I talked about this place. There must be a reason why a lot of the oldest people alive are from Japan. Their diet can explain it well. It is very hard to find food which taste horrible there. Big restaurants, small cafes, street food….they all taste so good. The way how they present their food is also a piece of art.
Have you ever tell yourself I want to check this place out but I don’t speak Japanese and I am so worry I will get lost in translation? Don’t worry! I never have any problem to ask for direction or ordering food (thanks for all the cute food modelling in front of the Japanese restaurants. ). Use your body language or there are so many apps now which can help you doing translation right away. It’s part of the fun to get lost in translation sometimes while you travel. Also, Japan is so ready to welcome more tourists while they are preparing for the 2020 Olympics.
