In eastern Poland, Lublin hosts plenty of festivals and fairs year-round. Its historic marketplace dates to the sixth century and its location ensured plenty of military action over the years, protecting its borders against invaders from the east. Influences from Eastern Europe and invading countries are easily spotted in the architecture. © Nadiia Gerbish | dreamstime.com

Tips / Travel

Looking for something fun to do and see this March? Try one of these can’t-miss festivals around the world.

 

Starkbierfest

Oktoberfest isn’t the only big beer fest in Munich. You can also attend Starkbierfest, March 15–April 7. The name means “strong beer” and that’s exactly what you’ll find here. You can expect plenty of beer, food, music and more. It’s the classic beer fest vibe, without the crowds of Oktoberfest.

 

Carnival Rio de Janeiro

Rio holds arguably the largest and best Carnival festival each year. While this year’s festivities are over, plan for the dancing, parades, extravagant costumes and loads of fun next year.

 

Bali Spirit Festival

For all things yoga, dance and music, all in an exotic atmosphere, head to Bali for the Bali Spirit Festival, March 24–31. Attend workshops and sessions on yoga, meditation, dance, martial arts, sound healing, breath work and more. Musicians come from all over the world and represent genres ranging greatly, from blues to chill rave, soul to tribal electronic.

 

Moomba Waterfest

In Australia, Moomba Waterfest is one of Melbourne’s longest-running community festivals. It attracts hundreds of thousands of guests with its free activities, March 11–14. Don’t miss the parade, water ski competition and carnival rides.

Adventures on Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Riad Le Bel Oranger, Marrakesh, Morocco

In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.

Highly Anticipated Films for Summer

The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise. The season is already starting strong with Marvel Studios finally releasing Avengers Endgame. This massive movie set box office records that likely won’t be touched for years. The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.

Rental Cars Offer Flexibility for Business, Leisure or Both

Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.

Find the “Ugly” in Europe

Finding the beauty in an iconic city like Rome, London, Prague or Paris is easy — just look around. See the jaw-dropping sites of the Coliseum or the Sistine Chapel on a summertime trip; take an obligatory photo on the South Bank with Big Ben in the distance; savor Prague Castle views; or stroll the stunning streets of Paris in the springtime.
