Trends / Spring Break

Kavos established itself as a popular spring break destination decades ago, and it’s still going strong as one of the world’s most popular party towns. Beautiful beaches, a seemingly endless strip of nightclubs and bars and more sun than you can soak up, it’s definitely a place that should be near the top of your spring break list.

 

One of the benefits of Kavos is it attracts many of the same big-name DJs as places like Ibiza, but at half the price. Future Club, Limelights and Club S’ex routinely host the biggest parties throughout the week, with a combination of live music and themes. However, if you can score entrance to one of the superclubs, Cream or Ministry of Sound, you’re in for a wild night of drunken fun. Though they only happen sporadically throughout the year, you can bet you’ll see at least one open up during spring break.

 

Eidelweiss and Snobs are also popular choices among the millennial crowd, with raging foam parties thrown all week long at each venue, along with the occasional fire show. Seriously, one of them has a habit of setting things on fire.

 

When you’re not partying or throwing up in the bathroom all morning, the beaches of Kavos offer plenty of activities. Watersports, like jet skiing, water skiing and wakeboarding, are popular in the area, as are parasailing, bungee jumping and catapulting.

 

There are plenty of options for accommodations, but local favorites include the right-on-the-beach Roussos Studios and the Cavos Beach House, which boasts its own bar. Wherever you choose to stay, you’re sure to have a great time, even if you won’t remember most of it.

Medical Products You Probably Don’t Need to Pack

The internet is teeming with countless listicles that advise you on what to pack for your next vacation, especially when it comes to products to help you stay safe and healthy while miles away from home. But there are some medical products you might not really need, despite the overflow of suggestions.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Inexpensive European Ski Destinations

Winter isn’t quite over, especially high in the Alps and Pyrenees, two of Europe’s main mountain ranges for skiing. Catch a flight to one of these locations for some last-minute seasonal skiing on a budget.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
