@PauseTheMoment

Some of us travel for vacation but the few lucky ones get to travel for a living.   The instagram account @Pausethemoment is run by a blogger named Ryan who originally set out on a six-month trip seven years ago, I guess the trip is going well. He is based out of Playa del Carmen in Mexico so expect tons of beach pics with deep blue waters and the occasional margarita.

If you are tired of your standard hotel experience and are looking for something closer to Mother Earth, try a nature-themed hotel. Hotels are often terrible for the environment with excess waste and high utility usage. If that bums you out, like it should, maybe you need a more environmental friendly hotel experience. We compiled a list of some of the best nature-themed hotels and resorts across the globe. Travel consciously and do something for Mother Earth, since she has given so much to us.

 

Frost and Fire Hotel, Iceland

Iceland is a country that takes nature preservation serious, so it’s only right to start off the list here. If you are searching for a nature loving experience, check out the Frost And Fire Hotel in Iceland. See the Northern Lights in one of the most spectacular scenic locations. Situated right on the bank of the Varma River, The Frost and Fire Hotel offer amazing views while keeping nature in mind. Rooms have huge picture glass windows so the outside comes in. The river is heated by geothermic hot springs so its swimmable most of the year.

 

The Caves, Jamaica

Enjoy nature in its finest form at the Caves in Jamaica. Nestled up on a cliff overlooking the grandiose Caribbean Sea in Negril, sits the fabulous Caves resort.   A honeymoon favorite for its romantic rooms and quaint natural touches. Enjoy an outdoor shower or eat a meal in a natural grotto. This Cliffside resort has it all and is waiting for you.

 

Haramara Retreat, Mexico

You won’t have electricity in your bungalows or walls, instead a thin mosquito net divides you from the jungle. A world-renowned yoga retreat, Haramara has hosted its share of top-level celebrities. You can stay here, eat clean and center your chakras, or whatever yoga does.

 

Conscious Hotel Museum Square, Amsterdam

This Amsterdam hotel is a perfect example of an urban location striving for some nature in a sea of concrete. Featuring living walls instead of art the Conscious Hotel is making its mark. They serve organic food in their restaurant and are conveniently located next to museums and other tourist destinations.

 

Teton Mountain Lodge, Wyoming

If rustic is your ideal setting then the Teton Mountain Lodge in Wyoming should be your choice. Situated in the beautiful and breathtaking Grand Teton National Park this lodge reminds you what America used to be before commercialization hit us hard. You’ll feel like an explorer with Louis and Clark.

 

Blancaneaux Lodge, Belize

Belize is a natural wonder, situated below Mexico on the Central Caribbean Coast. If you are looking for a jungle adventure with the amenities of a resort, look no further. Check out the neighboring Mountain pine Ridge Forest Reserve for some of the world’s best hiking and exploring.

We’ve found the best summer ski spots in the world, so grab your boots and skis and hit the slopes, well into summer. Instead of heading to the southern hemisphere, try these closer alternatives for all your snow fun.

 

Zermatt, Switzerland

Ski in the shadow of the famous Matterhorn in Switzerland at Zermatt.   A cable car will take you to 13 awesome summer trails. For the adventure seekers, there is a full terrain park with half pipe and kickers.

 

Whistler-Blackcomb, Canada

Saas Fee, Switzerland

Visit Saas Fee in Switzerland if you seek the summer ski resort less-traveled. You won’t find traffic or hoards of tourists in the small town below. You will find 18 awesomely groomed runs and some spectacular glacier views from the top of the 4,000-meter peaks.

 

Hintertux, Austria

The only resort in Austria that is open every dang day of the year. Yea, Hintertux is open 365 days a year for your fun in the snow and sun. This awesome resort offers 10 ski lifts open year round and a whole range of slopes for every ski level. This high altitude resort is not the best place for someone who often gets altitude sickness. The high quality of snow here is a favorite for international ski teams as many train here year round.

 

Les 2 Alpes, France

Les 2 Alpes has its very own high altitude mini resort for the summer season. When it’s boiling hot at sea level, its always chilly at 3,000 meters above sea level.   This high-altitude resort boasts 11 runs, 17 lifts and a snowboard park.   This is seriously a nice summer ski venue that you won’t have to travel to Chile to ski.

 

Tignes, France

This is a great place to vacation for your entire family. Maybe some of you are over winter and want some summer fun in the sun, and then Tignes France is perfect for you. The ski resort is located 3,000 meters above the lake, so temperatures are quite chilly. But at sea level the temps are perfect for swimming in the lake.

Tignes boats a really cool underground transport that takes you almost to the top of the mountain and the peak is reached by a cable car.

Finding your summer ski and snowboard resorts is easier than you thought, and you didn’t even have to change hemispheres. The Northern Hemisphere has tons of great skiing all-year round; you just need to know where to look. Some of these resorts are more expensive than others but you can always find deals if you look hard enough.

Summer Travel Season: Avoid these Expenses

Summer travel season is just around the corner and it’s only getting more and more expensive to see the world. If budget is important to you then try saving major buck with some helpful tips.

Summer travel season is just around the corner and it’s only getting more and more expensive to see the world. If budget is important to you then try saving major buck with some helpful tips. Your wallet deserves a break as well, so try to save a few bucks this summer by avoiding some extra expenses.

 

Airport parking fees

Airports can be some of the most expensive places you’ll visit on vacation. Airline baggage fees, high foods costs and now add in insanely high parking rates and you’re already breaking the bank before you even leave town.

On average on site parking at airports hovers around $20 per day, which can really add up. It’s time to get resourceful in finding a cheaper alternative to parking on site. Many hotels offer free parking with one night’s stay, so search around for some great deals.

Many people will just find a ride to the airport and leave your car at home. Car services like Uber and Lyft can be very convenient for situations like this. You of course can always ask a friend for a ride, calling in a favor is a great way to save money.

If parking at the airport is your only option then search for discount lots around the airport that will generally be half the price of on-site lots.

 

Baggage Fees

Airlines now charge insanely high baggage fees and even higher penalties for overweight bags, so make sure you pack smart. It’s good practice to weigh your bags before you go to the airport. Make note of the baggage restrictions and see how much a bag can weigh before they charge you an overweight fee. Generally the limit is between 50-60 pounds per bag. Most airlines charge between $30-50 per bag, so it usually saves you money to carry on more than you check. Reputable airlines offer two free carry-ons for free, so take advantage of their generosity. Some budget airlines charge for every add-on like carry-on bags and choosing your seat.

 

Hotel Fees

Hotels are picking up on this ala carte style of charging guests so get ready for tons of hidden fees next time you stay at a hotel or resort. Of course the mini-bar is where they get you, steer clear of in room dining in general. Hotels are now charging for early check-ins, holding luggage at front desk and late checkouts, so be aware that they will try and squeeze every cent out of you.

 

Eating Out Constantly

Eating out on vacation is where a good portion of money ends up being wasted. Try cooking or preparing one meal a day and see how much you save overall. Maybe you will be swayed to eat two meals a day on the cheap and one nice restaurant meal.

 

Rental Car Expenses

Rental cars often end up being huge wastes of money. If you are going to be at a resort the entire time, why rent a car. Most resorts offer a free shuttle service and cabs are usually so cheap.

If you must rent a car, make sure you aren’t wasting money on expenses that are not needed. Your insurance should cover your car, so avoid the rental car insurance; it’s a scam. Pay with a credit card, as they will insure most purchases and services.

 

Peak Travel times

The best way to save big on summer vacations is avoiding the busiest times. Try and fly out on a Tuesday and return on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Saturday. Avoid holidays like the plague; they are the most expensive time to travel and often the busiest.

 

Save money all over the place if you just keep your eyes open and are ready for the curveballs that will be tossed your way.
