Our borders might be sealed for traveling, but, luckily, our imagination can walk us through wherever we want. What is better to stimulate our imagination
Royal Caribbean Cruises announced a global suspension of cruising March 14 that will run at least through April 11 as the global coronavirus crisis wreaks havoc throughout the tourism industry. Chairman and CEO Richard Fain said in a video message to travel agents that it’s probably going to take months for things to get back to normal, so in the meantime, while we are all landlocked, let’s sail into the future and wet our imagination with some of things in store for 2021.
When you’re travelling, it’s a great idea to earmark some good eateries before you go, so you know where you can get the best vegan food in the city. I often use websites such as HappyCow to find local vegan options – this is a really great way to browse all of the restaurants around you, and check out their menu and pricing before you commit to it. Recently, I’ve visited some cities with absolutely incredible vegan restaurants, so I’ve collated some of my favourites in this post for the ultimate vegan vacation.
An hour flight from Morocco, and an hour and a half from Lisbon, Madeira Island, Portugal has been voted the “Leading Island Destination in Europe”
Adventure tourism is booming, as one of the fastest growing segments in tourism with hiking, biking and even caving or skydiving becoming a stranded in travel planning.

The cockroach against the giant. Will Rome2Rio.com beat in a head in head battle Google Flights, Google Maps, and Google Hotel Meta-Search? Will Rome2Rio give better value using its travel search engine and even save costs on your next travel in comparison to the Google travel planning and booking tools?
Rome2Rio against GOOGLE – Conclusion
Google’s mission statement is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. My conclusion to the article is that the cockroach beat the giant in its own game. Rome2rio is a better travel search engine than the 3 google products it run against. Rome2rio thinks about the person who is looking to make the travel plans. The options, prices and routes are presented clearly enabling the traveler to make an informed decision based on all options. On the other hand Google Flights and Google Hotel Meta-Search beat booking.com in the hotel price and Skyscanner in the flight price. This only comes to show that Google uses its search engine capabilities to find the best deal. It immediate presence at the top of the page will lead to growing numbers of users that will opt for Google at the expense of the Bookind.com and Skyscanner and Expedia.
So in a nutshell – Rome2rio is a better comprehensive planning and booking tool, Google is cheaper.
While there are a wealth of travel booking websites out there, it’s also true that some sites are just better; they offer cheaper options and have more useful features than others. Still, between the multiple available aggregators and online travel agent portals (OTPs), just the process of booking a flight can seem to sometimes drag on indefinitely as travelers search site after site for the best deals. In fact, some industry reports estimate that travelers look at an average of 38 travel booking sites before booking their travel. That’s a lot of time and websites for just one flight!
