If you have yet to do so, you may want to take the time to examine some of the many New Zealand tours available for you and other tourists to take.

If you are looking for an adventurous New Zealand tour, but also one that is relaxing at the same time, you may want to think about taking a New Zealand whale watching tour.

In addition to traditional boat tours, you can also schedule a New Zealand tour that allows you to go whale watching from the air.

Another type of New Zealand tour that you may enjoy is a traditional hiking tour. New Zealand hiking tours are not only exciting and adventurous, but they are also beautiful beyond what words can explain. The New Zealand terrain is one of the best in the world for hiking tours. In addition to taking a traditional New Zealand tour on foot, did you also know that you could do more? It is also possible to take a New Zealand tour on an off-road vehicle. Off-road tours are the perfect way to turn an otherwise casual scenic tour into an unforgettable adventure.

One New Zealand tour that you may want to consider taking is one that is relativity unique, but one that you will never forget. As it was previously mentioned, New Zealand is well-known for its vast array of landscape. That landscape also includes caves. It is possible to find a New Zealand tour, in fact a number of them, that allow you to tour the caves of New Zealand, some of which are underground. In fact, you can do more than just explore caves on a New Zealand tour, but you can also enjoy a cave rafting adventure!

The above mentioned New Zealand tour types are just a few of the many that you will find waiting for you in New Zealand. In addition to choosing which type of New Zealand tour or tours you would like to take, you also have a choice when it comes to making your reservations. If you have yet to book your travel arrangements, including your overnight accommodation options, you may want to look into making your reservations in the form of a New Zealand tour package. For instance, if you were interested in taking a whale watching tour, your package could include a few days of whale watching, as well as overnight accommodations at a nearby hotel or resort.

When it comes to choosing a New Zealand tour to attend, it is advised that you first examine all of your options. When doing so, you may find yourself wanting to make reservations for more than one New Zealand tour.

Romance Tours and Singles Vacations

Sunday, June 10, 2012 9 comments
Can't find a suitable life partner at home? Would you like to meet 500-2000 single women in 7-10 days? Do you have a valid passport? Well, here is your chance! Coco Swan takes a peek at singles tours and gives you the lowdown.

In 1999 a report to Congress by the US Immigration and Naturalization Service estimated more than 200 US based businesses paired 4000-6000 US men with women from overseas seeking marriage. This number had doubled by 2004.

A romance tour is a holiday outside of the United States where you are provided with a guide and interpreter, if needed, with the ultimate goal of meeting foreign women interested in matrimony outside their native country.

Most tour groups have an average of 25-40 men in them, so not too much competition, but enough men for the ladies to want to attend the functions. Tours seem to average 7-10 nights, depending upon your destination, with some as long as 45 nights.

The reputable romance tour companies will escort you from a gateway city to your destination. They will also meet you at the airport at your destination, assist with check-in, and provide local getting around tours. All ethical companies will have office open all year round in the city you are headed for. Once you have signed on to a romance vacation site you should be provided with addresses and profiles of women before you leave. You should also be able to peruse the files of the ladies and request meetings with the ones who take your fancy. Included in your holiday package should be a fiancée visa kit with all-pertinent information and forms.

The Fiancée Visa. Make sure you are using a site that is licensed in your part of the States for immigration law and also licensed to work in the country you are headed for. The fiancée visa (K-1) is a non-immigrant visa allowing a foreigner to enter the US for the purpose of marriage. They are normally valid for 3 months only, during which time a marriage must take place. If the marriage does not take place within this time any extension of stay will not be allowed. There are 4 main service centers to handle these petitions, according to your place of residence. These are in California, Texas, Vermont and Nebraska. It is now considered impossible for a foreign single girl to enter the States on a tourist visa and then try and stay on and marry. So get the paperwork right the first time and save yourself a lot of time, trouble and money. Most of the reputable companies offer several levels of fiancée visa assistance packages ranging from self described basic, but proper, to full on liaising with your fiancée and lots of after care. Children under the age of 21 years seemed to be covered in all the packages.

Social Nights. It appeared that the standard tour provided 2-3 Social Nights in your tour. 3 nights seemed the norm for Russia and 2 or 3 for Asia, Latin America and Philippines. These are averages only. It would appear that the ethical companies should provide a similar formula to this. The socials should be fully catered with food, drink and champagne or the like. You should not be expected to pay for the food or drink for the ladies at these particular events. The social night should be held somewhere like a banquet room in a hotel or private entertainment complex. You should be able to indicate any ladies who you would like to meet here. Anyone you meet who you do like, you just ask for her phone number. The ladies should all be screened at the front door. The ladies should all be different at each and every social night. The ladies should all be personal invitees and not just females invited in off the street. Depending on your tour, you should have the opportunity to meet somewhere between 500-2000 females.

Most tour packages seemed to include buffet breakfasts. Make sure your tour will provide you with a private hotel room that you will not be sharing with another client.

It is a great idea to take along photos to show of your home, family, town, lifestyle etc; so that any prospective fiancées can obtain a better idea of the life you will be offering them.

Destinations: The most popular destinations, leaving out of the US, are Russia, the Ukraine, Latin America, Thailand and the Philippines. Males from other parts of the world are more than welcome to embark on these US based tours, although they can probably see if their own host country has sites offering the same services.

Russia and the Ukraine have at least 20 cities to choose from including St Petersburg, Volgograd, Ufa, Kiev, Odessa, Crimea, Poltava and Sumy, to mention just a few. Some of the longer tours incorporate multiple cities on the one holiday. To go to Russia you need to have at least 6 months left on your passport and you will also need a visa for Russia. Amongst Russian men there is a high death ratio and a high alcoholism rate. Due to the poor economy there, wives and families have become unaffordable for many Russian men.

The Philippines. No translators are needed in the Philippines as English is the primary language there. The Philippine females are often perceived as being happy to work. Philipino ladies apparently see the older man as more desirable and stable as life partners and fathers.
In the Philippines it appeared that 3 social nights was the norm. Airport collections, breakfasts and 24 hour guidance should be provided. In the Philippines it would seem that unlimited personal introductions were being provided with about 15 minutes of staff attendance at the start of each meeting. If after the 15 minutes things are going nicely then generally you move on to a café or restaurant where you will be expected to pay for your date. As a rule you should be getting at the minimum a city orientation tour by the company.

Bangkok, Thailand. This is the place to go if you are looking for exhilarating nightlife. The accommodation that I saw as being provided in these romance tours was astonishingly luxurious, far and away better than any other country that I saw. So if night clubs and swanky sophisticated accommodation are on your holiday wish list then this could be the destination for you. Buffet breakfasts were also included. You should be provided with interpreters, 24-hour guidance from staff, 2-3 social nights, a city tour and a metro tour showing you how to use the Sky Train. Your hotel should be just minutes from the nightlife. You should be entitled to unlimited introductions much as described above. The other benefits of Thailand are the great golf courses and the fact that you can have medical and dental procedures done in hospitals there for about 90% less than in the State. Imagine, new teeth and a new wife!

San Jose, Costa Rica. Rainforests, volcanoes, beaches and surfing. Not to mention absolutely stunning looking girls. Apparently girls are raised in Costa Rica with romantic family oriented cultures. In Costa Rica you should be entitled to 2 Social nights, unlimited personal introductions, interpreters, airport pick up, and breakfast.

Colombia. Medillin, Barranquilla, Cartagena and Manizales were all featured as places to go. Again, stunning scenery and even more stunning girls were heavily featured.

Machu-Picchu, Lima, Peru and Nicaragua are all other destinations that have been opened up to the world of singles travel tours. The Latin America tours were providing up to 3 one-on-one introductions per day.

Ultimately, you need to decide where you would like to go for your holiday and what style of prospective wife you are seeking. The professional sites have 250,000 applicants on file and up to 20,000 profiles for you to select from. These women are all genuinely prepared to leave their lives and countries behind to start a fresh life with Mr. Right. Romance tours have become increasingly popular in the last decade or so with the opening up of the electronic world courtesy of the Internet.

Tired of being on your own? Take charge of the rest of your life right now! Grab a passport, visa and paperwork. Get on a plane. Go on a romance tour. Bring home a fiancée- what a holiday souvenir!

Touring Bicycles

Touring bicycles are special types of bicycles used for long-distance travel and for racing. A bicycle tour might take a day, weeks, or months to complete according to the plan. A touring bicycle is a mix of a mountain and racing bicycle. There are two types of bicycle tours: loaded touring and credit card touring.

In loaded touring, the tourist takes all the equipment with him. The tourist takes food, cooking equipment, and a tent for camping. To accommodate all of the equipment, these bicycles are designed with heavy-duty frames. These frames help to carry specialized luggage. Credit card touring bicycles carry less equipment with them.

Touring bicycles usually have luggage racks in the front and the rear end. For reliability and long distance comfort, these cycles use road handlebars and saddles. Rugged hubs are combined with handlebars to provide durability; sometimes instead of baskets, bicycle trailers are used in touring bicycles. These trailers provide a low center of gravity and can be separated easily.

A touring bicycle has certain special characteristics, including a longer wheelbase and a stable steering geometry. The wheelbase increases the stability at the cost of quick response. A broader range of gearing is present in these bicycles. These gears help the cycle to carry equipment when climbing hills, which also provides durability and control in a varied terrain. Internal geared hubs are used in touring bicycles. In an internal geared hub, the mechanism is enclosed within a hub and is reliable and requires very little maintenance. Luggage racks, mudguards, and lights are present in every touring bicycle. They have also space for water bottles, tools, and spare parts. These cycles have a longer chain stay and a greater distance from rear wheel to pedals, for pedaling comfort.

Stronger brakes are required for touring bicycles. Cantilever brakes or linear-pull brakes are used in touring bicycles, and disc brakes are also used in touring bicycles. Disc brakes have greater braking power and have improved performance in wet weather. Touring bikes are usually available at custom bicycle shops.
