Keeping your Winter Holiday Green

Keeping your Winter Holiday Green

We live in a time where people are becoming increasingly eco-conscious, and both cor-porations and individuals are doing more than ever to reduce their carbon footprint. This is fantastic news and very important in a bid to protect our planet and reduce the impact of global warming, but there is still a lot of work to be done. The good news is that even small changes can have a huge impact.
As a rapidly growing industry that’s set in natural surroundings, the skiing community must look for ways to keep winter holidays green without compromising on the quality of stays in catered ski chalets and shredding powder on the mountain. If you have a ski trip coming up and want to do your bit, here are a few simple ways to have an eco-friendly holiday.

 

Public Transportation

One great way to protect the environment is to opt for public transportation instead of taking your own car. The local public transport system is usually free with a lift pass, and offers a good chance to make a few new friends along the way. Using the local train network is also a good option if you want to venture outside of the resort and explore.

Recycling in Your Chalet

There has been a huge push to encourage recycling in ski resorts in recent years. Simply separate your rubbish from what can be recycled and take it down to the recycling point. This only takes a few minutes, but has a very positive impact on the environment.

Gear from Eco-Friendly Companies

There are a growing number of eco-friendly ski and snowboard companies that provide gear that does not harm the environment. This includes using eco-friendly waxes on snowboards and skis that are made from sustainable, reclaimed or recycled materials. For a great and guilt-free experience in the snow, why not consider renting or buying this equipment from a company that is doing its part to save our planet?

Chalet Hire from Reputable Companies

One of the easiest ways to go green is to book your catered ski chalet from a reputable company that has actively taken steps to combat damaging the environment. Take your time to research the company, and keep your eyes peeled for those that adhere to an AITO recognised environmental policy.

Getting There

Transport is always a concern when it comes to green holidays. Flying can produce three times more CO2 emissions per passenger than other forms of public transportation, so avoid this if possible. Good alternatives include driving (car shares are even better) and going by train (there are many stations throughout the Alps).

Offset Carbon

If you do decide to fly, you can still do your bit by offsetting your carbon (certain airlines provide this option at the time of booking). A few options include getting a shared transfer or bus from the airport/train station and using a transfer company that offsets their carbon.

Adhering to Resort Environmental Issues

If you choose a resort that has environmentally friendly practices in place, be sure to ad-here to these during your stay. The staff members know how to best protect the site, and they can make it easy for you to do your bit whilst still enjoying your stay.

Never has it been more important for people to reduce their environmental impact than today. Fortunately, this can be relatively straightforward during a stay in a catered ski chalet, and will allow us all to continue skiing without damaging the beautiful surround-ings.

The Culinary Charm of Chamonix

The Culinary Charm of Chamonix

Renowned for its superb skiing and breath-taking scenery, Chamonix also has some truly divine places to dine. Here are a few of the best restaurants this charming ski resort has on offer all year round.
Le Cap Horn

 

This well-known and highly-regarded restaurant offers up both French and Asian-inspired plates. Dishes include a delicious honey and soy sauce pan-seared duck breast, their sumptuous fisherman’s stew and the lighter-than-air souffle au Grand Marnier.

The restaurant is situated in a beautifully rustic chalet which is decorated with little model sail boats. Make sure you reserve your table in advance at the weekend during summer and winter to avoid disappointment.

Les Vieilles Luges

Reachable only by 20-minute hike or on skis, you will certainly have earned your supper at this delightful 250-year-old farmhouse when you make it there. Sit by a crackling fire and soak up the atmosphere underneath the low wooden beams, all the while enjoying rich dishes including their signature grand-mère’s bœuf bourguignon. Wash it down with some of their very tasty mulled wine.

Crèmerie du Glacier

For all fromage fanatics among you, this cheese-lover’s paradise is a must-visit when in Chamonix. A forest chalet is the setting for Chef Claudy’s world-renowned croûte aux fromages: bread, soaked in a secret recipe white wine sauce, topped with a healthy layer of some of the best cheese in the country and baked until golden and delicious.

Auberge du Bois Prin

It’s well worth the effort heading to Les Moussoux to dine at Auberge du Bois Prin if only for the stunning views of Mont Blanc it boasts. The views, as spectacular as they are, certainly won’t be the most memorable aspect of your time here. Sample modern and traditional French plates from duck foie gras to mousseline, and don’t skip the cheese course, which is simply delectable! For those of you concerned about food miles, you will be delighted to learn that all of the vegetables and herbs used in the menu are grown in the hotel grounds, which you can look over should you choose to dine on the terrace – well worth braving the winter temperatures for!

How to Get There

Is your mouth already watering? Don’t worry – you can be in Chamonix in a jiffy! With several flights taking only 90 minutes leaving daily from the UK to Geneva, part one of your journey is simple. For part two, to get from Geneva to Chamonix you simply need to book a Shuttle Direct transfer online to bring you directly to the resort. Choose from group or private transfers and receive the same professional and friendly service every time. With journey times from Geneva to Chamonix taking approximately one hour, you could be there in time for dinner.

All You Need to Know About the Canal de la Marne au Rhin

All You Need to Know About the Canal de la Marne au Rhin

For your next barge holiday in France, why not travel down the Canal de la Marne au Rhin and discover the wonders of Alsace-Lorraine. Its complex history has made it a beautiful crossroads of French and German culture, creating the iconic wooden-beamed houses, delicious Alsatian wines and even their very own dialect. There are a variety of landscapes to admire along the way too, including rolling vineyards, breathtaking mountains and historical cities.
Length and Route

 

The Canal de la Marne au Rhin is a 313-kilometre-long stretch of water that links Paris to Alsace and Germany. An excellent route for a barge holiday in France starts in Vitry-le-François and continues towards the historic town of Bar-le-Duc. You can then travel down towards Nancy, first passing through Toul, to finish a little beyond the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

History and Feats of Engineering

Completed in 1855, the Canal de la Marne au Rhin posed a few major issues to the engineers who designed it – mainly, how to pass through the Vosges mountains and reach the Col de Saverne. Initially the canal was made to rise gradually by passing through a seventeen-lock ladder, which would create a 44-metre level change over 4 kilometres. This technique was used until 1969, at which time it was replaced by the Saint Louis Arzviller inclined plane. With this new system, the barge enters a large caisson and is either lifted or lowered up or down the slope thanks to a counter balancing weight. On a barge holiday in France with European Waterways, you’ll be 1 of 39 barges to use it. It should take about 20 minutes to complete the full journey (including entering and exiting the caisson). It is an ingenious system that uses very little electricity and only requires two men to monitor it.

Attractions en Route

Following the Canal de la Marne au Rhin lets you explore all the Alsace-Moselle region has to offer. You won’t want to pass up on the opportunity of discovering the Lehrer Crystal Glassworks once you have passed over the Arzviller slope, or of exploring the historical city of Strasbourg and taking a tour around the renowned family-run Meteor Brewery when you reach Alsace. The Lehrer Crystal Glassworks lets you immerse yourself in the world of glassblowing as you watch experts craft and cut fine glass. Once you’ve ticked that off your list, I’d recommend visiting the Cathedral in Strasbourg, with its gorgeous Gothic-style architecture, its beautifully detailed stained-glass windows and intricately carved gargoyles. There are 332 steps to climb to reach the top, but the view from up there is well worth the effort. You should also have a wander around the windy streets of La Petit France to see the picturesque Alsatian houses lined with colourful geraniums. You can then head to the Meteor Brewery. It offers guided tours on which you’ll learn the six complex stages of creating and blending that goes into making the unique flavour of this 400-year-old beer. It wouldn’t be a barge holiday in France without a little culture!

5 Woman Sex Tips Want You Read Now

 

Almost everyone loves sex, some of us more than others.

And, yes, “everyone” includes some girlfriends and your wife, which you definitely want to please in the bedroom.

Nonetheless, some men struggle to get their partner where they want to be in the bedroom.

It’s okay It happens, and it’s perfectly normal not to admire sex; most people do not.

Although you may never be extraordinary in the bedroom, you can still improve your appearance in the bedroom if you take this tip (directly from the woman’s mouth) into consideration:

Foreplay Not Optional
Good. Maybe foreplay is optional; However, there are many people who are not regularly involved in it and still have at least half the sex life that is worth it.

However, there are many people, women, who view foreplay as an important part of their experience in the bedroom, and many of these women expect their male partners to appreciate as much as they do.

So why do women have attachments such as foreplay?

In fact, there are several reasons, the most important being that sex becomes uncomfortable and sometimes really painful when a woman is not properly prepared for her.

“Prep” in this case refers to the steps necessary to ensure that your partner’s vagina is adequately lubricated prior to penetration.

There are, of course, many ways to get things done, and foreplay certainly makes the job easier and less awkward.

The simplest action is to buy some kind of vaginal lubricant and apply it to her.

Do not, however, only mechanically apply it to him no territory; You have to make that process the same as raising it. In other words, use your fingers as effectively as possible (eg strokes) to make them comfortable and ready for what’s to come.

You can also skip the lubricant altogether and go to the “natural” route. That is, you can rely on your partner’s vagina to lubricate herself in response to her passion.

This route clearly assumes that your partner has no problems with vaginal dryness. If he happens to have a problem with this, you’ll want to use this lubricant.

However, just as you can not mechanically approach the task of applying the lubricant, you also can not get away while taking the “natural” route. You also have to work for it a bit more.

Some couples embellish their foreplay by playing roles and talking dirty to each other, but if you do not like those things, there are many other routes you can take.

Be creative. Your partner will thank you for it.

Porn is not from the question
While many sources suggest that women are not interested in pornography, men stand to lose little by simply asking for their partner.

Besides, there are some pornographic women there. Many of them, it turns out, just happen to be ashamed of the habit.

In fact, some of them do not even want their colleagues to know that they are in it.

Regardless of whether your partner is embarrassed or not, at least you should at least run the idea out of him.

If you want to bring pornography to your bedroom, you need to be careful in your use; You should not just insert the video into your DVD player and turn on the television.

To be fair, this type of error is expected because men are very dependent on visual stimulation during sex.

Women, on the other hand, are entirely different animals; They are more responsive to touch, sound, and smell.

It is said, why not use porn to strengthen the fun, other senses can afford it?

In other words, play pornography, but mute, and when you both come in, give it your own voice.

Very little can be more erotic than replacing groans and groans of actors in the video with your own.

Even if you have to choose not to mute the video, moans and groans are still highly recommended. After all, your female partner will want to hear you moan in her ear.

Women love to be touched … anywhere
As stated earlier, visual stimuli do not excite women like other types of stimuli.

Although they are not very responsive to vision, they are very sensitive to touch.

And, unfortunately, many of them feel that their male partners are not trying to touch any part of them except their vagina.

But do not get me wrong. Women want you to touch their vagina; they just want you to touch the remaining 99% of their body as well.

Some women, for example, love p

The Finest Vineyards in France: The Wine of Saint-Émilion

The Finest Vineyards in France: The Wine of Saint-Émilion

Part of experiencing of the culture and heritage of any place to is to taste it. In Bordeaux, this means sampling the area’s many rich wines from one of the oldest and largest growing regions. For connoisseurs, Bordeaux is a paradise for enjoying wine tours.
Saint-Émilion is a must-see region for any traveller in search of the finest wine, which is bound to exceed your highest expectations. On board Rosa, you’ll experience a wide range of luxurious flavours, whether it’s a rich and full-bodied red, or a light and aromatic white.

 

UNESCO World Heritage Site

In 1999, Saint-Émilion was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s easy to see why. The history of grape-growing in the region is like no other, as the taste proves. Saint-Émilion, the oldest and largest appellation in Bordeaux, dictates over 5,500 hectares of land to growing grapes.

On board Rosa, you’ll cruise along the Dordogne River, soaking up the sights, smells and tastes of Bordeaux. Learn all about the varieties of wines produced here, from Médoc to the left to the vast selection found on the right bank of the river.

Types of Grape

Two of the most widely grown grapes in Saint-Émilion are the Merlot and the Cabernet Franc. Differing in taste and structure, these varieties have something for every connoisseur’s palate.

Merlot is composed of a rich, full-bodied combination of flavours with hints of plum, blackberries, dark cherries and chocolate, while Cabernet Franc is lighter and floral. The latter has become increasingly popular in recent years, due to its ability to thrive in spite of changes in climate.

Saint-Émilion Soil

Wines vary greatly in this region, which is due in large part to the differences in soil from vineyard to vineyard. For the most part, Grand Cru wines that are produced in this area are grown in soils that are rich in limestone, which can be found in the hills that surround Saint-Émilion. This greatly benefits the grapes, as the soil has vital minerals, such as calcium, that are needed to help vines grow. What’s more, its consistency provides excellent drainage.

Alternatively, the soil around Canon-La-Graffeliére boasts a sandy texture, which produces widely enjoyed and lighter-bodied tipples. When you join one of the many wine tours on offer, you can discover even more about the growing conditions and flavours of the region.

Itinerary Imperatives

When travelling through France, wine tours must be on any itinerary. You’ll be able to wow friends and family back home with your extensive knowledge at dinner parties and events. While on board Rosa, you’ll experience the process of wine-making from the very first grapes harvested to the first sip of a freshly uncorked bottle. You won’t find a more authentic or delicious taste of France anywhere.

Paul Newman is the Marketing and E-Systems Executive for European Waterways, the UK’s most respected provider of all-inclusive, luxury barge holidays. Offering holidays to France and other great destinations, itineraries include wine tours and other cultural and themed activities. Part of a team of experienced barging aficionados, Paul is first in line to endorse the perks of a slow-paced barge cruise to anyone looking for a unique holiday experience.

I have been asked MANY, how he became a Mayan Maid.

I am more than happy to share since I know there are many mothers / women trapped in a miserable dead end because they have no choice. I am also in the same position; I know how “it” feels. But I think people also asked because they secretly wanted to know if I was starving to death or ready to fade because of boredom. I am happy to say it, NOT to both :)

Since the virtual-assisting profession is getting more and more common with the current economic downturn, I think I’ll share my questions, and some quick answers for them:

What is a virtual maid?

Virtual help or VA is a self-employed entrepreneur, a household that helps other businesses, often in pentadbiran work. In other words, the VA is an officer assistant who rarely enters his client’s official! Most commercial owners have certain tasks that they may turn to their virtual helpers who do not require them to be in the same cubicle to get it done. There are these tasks and they may exceed the official or business administration.

What skills do I need to be VA?

VA’s proficiency requires the skill of the administration and commerce officials, but I also recommend a solid social media knowledge. The VA must also be very organized, communicate impressively and give detailed attention to details.

Irregularities on your part may cause unfinished final dates, incorrect data, and unsatisfied customers! Half the customers are looking for additional technical expertise, such as writing, marketing, e-mail marketing, blogging or web page hosting, and multimedia expenditures – though podcasting!

The skills you need as a VA depend on the type of customer you want to control. If you want to work with realtors, you should know about their systems and processes. If you want to work with your readers and business speakers, knowledge of skills pages like Wishlist is one of many skills that will be useful. In general, know what the client is giving you and nurture your skills to act in return.

What does VA do?

Assignments for Mayan Helper may be the corresponding “Admin”:

* reply e-mail (Help Desk)
* align customer customer calendar
* Investigate and collect information
* Writing commerce, editing, and reading proofreading

Other Criticisms:
* write and publish or schedule blog notes
Work with autoresponder
* originally wrote private label rights
Optimizing web pages for search engines
Make slaid offerings
boxed web pages
* Establishing a social network profile / page
* create videos and publish them online
* customer service
telemarketing
* Form of graphs, treatises, business cards
Create a newsletter
* added more …

Is he a good choice for Moms?

Personally I can give this Big.Giant.YES! Many house houses I know are VA and they earn a good income from their home comforts. I personally feel able to manage my work time in my family life is invaluable.

Virtual help is a home-based business, meaning to be flexible. You decide how many hours a day do you want to work on, which day, what kind of work you want to do, and even who you are going to do. I am happy to be able to give my children to school and be there. for them because they got off the bass. Conversely, if you have small children, it can be a bit complicated. Sometimes you need to contact or Skype with other customers, suppliers or partners. In this case, you need someone else to take care of your son so you can have peace and can focus on calling or boasting.

How much money can I make as a VA?

The rate of each VA hour depends on several factors. This includes their expertise and experience, whether they specialize in specific or specific industries, and whatever pensions they have (those licensed by the higher-rated institutions charge higher fees). Yuran VA differs widely, between $ 15 to $ 70 per hour. So, you can see, VA may be able to generate a full-time income at home.

Not making mistakes, it takes time to wake up your customer base and gain experience
