Same Same but Different: Sixt tips for keeping your creature comforts while traveling
Traveling to a new place is incredibly exciting, especially when it takes you out of the country or your comfort zone. However, in this digital day and age it’s become harder to have those unique and often quirky experiences in a foreign country as just about everything seems already mapped out and blogged about. Yet there are ways technology is helping to bring back the thrill of the unknown with new websites that present the unfamiliar in a very familiar way.
Expand Your Palate (and your circle of friends)
Figuring out where to eat while traveling can be fun, but it’s often tedious and impersonal as well. Finding your place at the table has been made easier with EatWith, which according to its founders, aims “to create an alternative, delicious way for travelers to discover the world”. Through the site you can arrange a meal in the homes of chefs in more than 150 countries worldwide. Share home cooked meals with locals and other travelers in interesting, intimate locations. Leaving not only full, but with some new friends is most likely on the menu.
Home Away from Home
Hotels don’t really have the same allure as they used to, particularly as we want to enjoy the same amenities we have at home. From a reliable WiFi connection to being able to make our morning coffee how we like it, staying somewhere closer to home when we are far from it is more appealing. If traveling to London, Paris, LA or New York you can make use of the services offered by onefinestay. Their site features fabulous homes that provide all the comforts you are used to plus everything you need, like an iPhone with free data and local calls.
When planning travels to a new place consider renting a car with Sixt. We offer affordable rates on a premium fleet of vehicles available in a range of styles. With your own vehicle you can move about independently, checking off everything that is on your itinerary or leaving it open to where the road takes you. Whether wanting to discover new destinations in a sports car, convertible, or an SUV we have a rental car to make you feel at home behind the wheel.
