Советы путешественникам: как сэкономить в поездке
Так, 56% респондентов из нашей страны заявили, что на отдыхе согласны дополнительно тратиться именно на экскурсии и осмотр достопримечательностей. При этом только 4% россиян могут совершенно не беспокоиться об отпускных расходах. Поэтому мы собрали топ лайфхаков, которые помогут путешественникам получить максимум впечатлений и знаний от поездки, потратив при этом меньше денег.
Туристическая карта, или карта гостя, дает возможность посещать различные места бесплатно или с большими скидками, а также свободно ездить на общественном транспорте. К примеру, карточки CityCard существуют в 39 городах и 21 стране мира. Они могут быть едиными и предоставлять льготы сразу и на транспорт, и на поход в музей или же ограничиваться только одной услугой. Кроме того, многие из них позволяют дешевле приобретать товары в определенных магазинах, есть в кафе и в ресторанах. Срок действия и стоимость такого «скидочного билета» зависит непосредственно от места отдыха и включенных услуг. Так, «Budapest Card» на 24 часа будет стоить 17 евро, на 48 часов – 28 евро, на 72 часа – 33 евро. За эти деньги вы получите бесплатный проезд в общественном транспорте, трансфер из и до аэропорта, пешеходные экскурсии в сопровождении гида, скидки на велосипедные туры, свободный вход в 8 музеев и льготы при осмотре других достопримечательностей, поход в термальную купальню св. Лукача и более низкие цены на еду и напитки в ряде гастрономических заведений. А в Париже, помимо городской карты, есть отдельный единый билет по музеям – «Paris Museum Pass», который позволяет посетить 60 музеев и памятников французской столицы и ее окрестностей в течение 2, 4 или 6 дней. Причем число визитов не лимитировано, а стоимость варьируется от 42 до 69 евро. Приобрести такие единые билеты можно в туристических информационных центрах или онлайн.
Пешие туры от волонтеров
Еще один способ хорошо узнать местность – посетить бесплатные тематические экскурсии, которые проводят волонтеры, влюбленные в свои города и желающие поделиться этими эмоциями с туристами. К примеру, в Милане ежедневно в 10:45 стартует обзорный тур на 2,5 часа от Milan Free Tour, место встречи – у памятника Fontana Pertini. А Discover Walks и SANDEMANs NEW Europe предлагают экскурсии по разным городам за donation – каждый после прогулки может заплатить столько, сколько считает нужным. Разнообразные маршруты от первой компании доступны в Париже и Лиссабоне. Бронировать их нужно заранее. Второе объединение гидов готово сопровождать путешественников в 18 точках мира: Амстердаме, Барселоне, Берлине, Брюсселе, Копенгагене, Дублине, Эдинбурге, Ливерпуле, Тель-Авиве, Иерусалиме, Гамбурге, Лиссабоне, Лондоне, Мадриде, Нью-Йорке, Париже, Мюнхене и Праге. Они покажут основные памятные места и необычные достопримечательности, расскажут о своей культуре и особенностях архитектуры разных районов и подарят новое восприятие города. Если вы не уверены, что успеете приехать к указанному времени, лучше сделать бронь онлайн. При велосипедном варианте тура или экскурсии на сегвее нужно будет дополнительно оплатить аренду транспорта.
Первый вид подобного пропуска – ISIC (International student Identity Card). Это международное удостоверение для школьников от 12 лет, студентов и аспирантов, которое подтверждает статус учащегося и открывает мир разнообразных привилегий. В числе льгот – скидки в 130 странах, бесплатные проходы в музеи, театры и культурные цены, а также меньшие цены на авиаперелеты, проживание в гостиницах и хостелах, еду в ресторанах, обучение, покупки и городские развлечения. Такой же список услуг доступен и преподавателям – с картой ITIC (International Teacher Identity Card). Тем, кто не входит ни в одну из этих категорий, но еще не старше 29 лет эти возможности открыты благодаря IYTC (International Youth Travel Card). Каждый из вариантов на 12 месяцев можно оформить за 600 рублей – требуются только документы, удостоверяющие возраст и фото 3 на 4, для первых двух типов надо также подтвердить статус. Только количество и размер скидок и привилегий различается в зависимости от стран.
Гид в кармане
Один из наиболее простых вариантов сэкономить – скачать аудиогид или мобильное приложение в телефон или планшет. Так вы будете независимы от группы и сможете познакомиться с городом, построив индивидуальный маршрут по своему выбору. К примеру, пользователи iPhone и iPad могут загрузить бесплатные путеводители momondo places по 11 столицам мира: Барселоне, Берлину, Бангкоку, Копенгагену, Лондону, Нью-Йорку, Парижу, Риму, Лиссабону, Амстердаму и Москве. Приложение служит как навигатор и дает возможность узнать о нетривиальных достопримечательностях, рынках, бутиках, ресторанах, кафе и барах. Каждый путеводитель содержит порядка 200 уникальных советов, собранных в сотрудничестве с местными жителями, и количество «освоенных» городов и интересных мест внутри них постоянно растет. Уже в ближайшие месяцы появятся такие «карманные гиды» по Гонконгу, Лос-Анджелесу, Дубаю, Хельсинки, Стамбулу, Майами, Праге и многим другим удивительным направлениям для путешествий.
При планировании поездки можно заглянуть и в крупнейшую гостевую сеть Couchsurfing, которая объединяет 10 миллионов путешественников из более чем 200 городов. Участники бесплатно готовы провести экскурсию по месту своего проживания, а также предоставить ночлег, оказать какую-либо другую помощь или составить компанию на протяжении всего маршрута. Также можно поискать добровольцев в других социальных сетях – многие из них согласны поводить туристов по окрестностям и музеям за привезенные им сувениры – конфеты, матрешки, магниты и другие мелочи. Однако, если в сети Couchsurfing пользователей проверяют, то при самостоятельном поиске нужно быть очень осторожным – проверять информацию и стараться больше узнать о человеке перед тем, как встретиться в реальности.
Дни бесплатных посещений
Множество культурных заведений в разных уголках света регулярно открывают двери для гостей совершенно бесплатно. К примеру, «Музей Копенгагена» можно свободно посетить по пятницам, бесплатно попасть в наиболее известные городские и государственные музеи Парижа можно в первое воскресенье каждого месяца, а знаменитый Лувр пускает туристов на безвозмездной основе еще и в День взятия Бастилии – 14 июля. В Барселоне вы сможете полюбоваться на произведения Пикассо, не заплатив, по воскресеньям после 3 часов дня. Дни, в которые можно наслаждаться искусством в других музеях мира, не оплачивая при этом проход, обычно указываются на их официальных сайтах.
По всему миру есть достопримечательности, при посещении которых не нужно платить за вход. Только чтобы попасть в некоторые из них, следует заранее записаться в интернете. К примеру, иначе невозможно увидеть величественный Рейхстаг в Берлине. А здание датского Парламента нельзя посетить, не присоединившись к 45-минутной экскурсии с англоязычным гидом. Бесплатные билеты можно взять при входе, однако их получают в порядке живой очереди, а количество мест ограничено, так что лучше опять же забронировать тур онлайн. Тем более что залы заседаний открыты для гостей не во все дни – конкретные даты можно уточнить на официальном сайте.
На порталах, посвященных тем или иным памятным местам, обычно размещаются новости об акциях для посетителей. Кроме того, информацию о скидках можно найти на специальных сайтах, например, на Groupon или Travelzoo. Причем помимо специальных цен на билеты в музеи, здесь можно найти скидочные купоны на походы в спа-центры, цирки, театры, рестораны и множество других мест для отдыха и развлечений.
Тем, кто путешествует с детьми, также очень полезно предварительно заходить на официальные сайты достопримечательностей в выбранных для отдыха странах. Во-первых, в некоторые музеи ребенка до определенного возраста могут пропустить бесплатно. Во-вторых, во многих местах есть практика семейных билетов, по которым взрослые с детьми (количество зависит от определенного места) могут пройти по специальной цене – ниже, чем при покупке отдельных проходок. Например, попасть в Технический музей на острове Юргорден в Стокгольме двое родителей вместе с 1-4 детьми могут попасть за 400 шведских крон, тогда как обычные билеты стоят 150 крон для каждого взрослого и 50 крон для ребенка в возрасте 7-19 лет.
«Сэкономить в путешествии также можно и другими способами. Например, выбирая перелеты с пересадками, останавливаясь в хостелах или апартаментах с кухней, на которой можно самостоятельно готовить еду. Кроме того, во многих городах мира есть бесплатные музеи и проходят разнообразные концерты, фестивали и другие мероприятия со свободным входом. А, к примеру, в Милане для молодых людей до 35 лет действует социальный проект «Una poltrona per Te», в рамках которого можно забронировать бесплатное место на спектакль в одном из 30 театров», – комментирует Ирина Рябовол, представитель momondo в России.
Еще один способ сохранить средства – воспользоваться бесплатным сервисом momondo «Travel Saver Calendar». Это календарь экономного путешественника, который подскажет вам, когда лучше всего отправляться в самые популярные города, чтобы максимально сэкономить при покупке авиабилетов и оплате номера в отеле. Планируйте заранее и путешествуйте с умом!

b As someone who is usually quite sensible, I have always been fairly certain there were no such things as zombies. Aside from our dearly departed hamster that had been buried in the backyard, only to be dug up by the dog, I had never seen anything come back from the dead. Well, there was that one goldfish that I found swimming upside down and I was sure it was a goner, who then made a miraculous recovery. But aside from that, I ve always thought, what goes dead stays dead.But then my son came home from college and I realized, zombies really do exist.I noticed the change the minute he woke up in the morning. He had stayed out practically the entire night before and then withdrew to his room when the first rays of daylight began to peek through the night sky. Of course, the fact that he seemed repelled by the sun could make him a vampire, not a zombie, but I m building a case here so I ll move on.He slept the sleep of the dead. And when he finally arose around noon, he walked with a funny gait, stumbling through the hall as though his limbs had forgotten what they were supposed to do. His hair stood on end and his eyes were mostly closed. I still suspected he was among the living until he spoke. Ungh, he grunted. Good morning, I replied. Ungh, ga, he responded, still with his eyes closed. He felt along the wall until his hands found the refrigerator door. Apparently Ungh, ga means I m hungry in zombie.I was grateful that he sought nourishment from the refrigerator rather than from his parents or sibling. I suspected on some level my zombie son realized he d have an easier time getting me to reheat some leftover pizza for him than giving up my arm.With his eyes still mostly closed, he inhaled the pizza and then held up the empty plate. Mowah, he grunted at me.We had no more pizza and I was concerned that I might arouse his anger if I informed him of this. For the uninitiated, there truly is nothing scarier than an angry teenage college zombie. You have no idea what they might be capable of. Anything from an intentional overdose of body spray to an endless blast of loud electronic music. I shudder.Deciding I had to take control of the situation, I chose to risk my health and well-being and negotiate a deal. Look, I said to the zombie, You go take a shower and wake up and I ll make chocolate chip pancakes for you, OK? Page 2 of 2 - He nodded and then stumbled out of the room.Moments later, his teenage sister walked in.I took one look at her and I knew. Ungh, she said.Follow Tracy on Twitter at @Lostinsuburbia.

After the campaigning, it comes down to voter turnout, and Republicans are doing a better job in terms of mail ballots received as of late last week, according to the county Registrar of Voters. Those mail tallies in a minute, but first a glimpse at the type of election night drama those ballots can create. Higher proportions of Republicans than Democrats typically turn out in mid-term general elections. In 2010, 51 percent of the county s registered voters cast ballots. Republicans cast 49 percent of all ballots in the county even though they were 43 percent of registered voters. Democrats in 2010 accounted for 31 percent of ballots cast and were 32 percent of registered voters, while independents made up 16 percent of ballots cast but were 21 percent of registered voters. The 2010 general election also continued the trend of Republicans being more apt to cast mail ballots. Republicans were 51 percent of mail voters and 46 percent of poll voters, while Democrats were 30 percent of mail voters and 32 percent of poll voters. That phenomenon can add excitement to close races on election night. Orange County Registrar of Voters Neal Kelley typically has virtually all mail ballots scanned by the time the polls close. At 8:05, he presses the button and the instant tally of those mail ballots is posted online. In 2010, that meant the results of nearly 52 percent of all ballots cast were known while poll workers were still packing up. Because mail ballots tend to favor GOP candidates, many Democrats gained ground throughout the night as polling place results came in. While there were no Orange County upsets or come-from-behind victories in state legislative or congressional races in that year, the districts have since been redrawn to create several more competitive situations. The race between Democrat Jose Solorio and Republican Janet Nguyen for state Senate District 34 is one, and the race between Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, D-Fullerton, and Republican Young Kim for Assembly District 65 is another. Mail ballot tallies If Kim or Nguyen emerge with modest leads after the 8:05 p.m. postings, keep your eyes on the numbers as the polling place tallies are posted. (Also note that the Senate District 34 extends into Los Angeles County and those out-of county votes won t show up on Kelley s site. Combined totals will appear on the Register s site and on the Secretary of State s site.) Republicans advantage in voter registration has continued to shrink, slipping 3 percentage points since 2010, but still is at a considerable 41 percent to 32 percent edge over Democrats countywide. The edge is considerably larger in the mail ballots received as of Friday, with Republicans accounting for 50 percent and Democrats making up 30 percent, according to Kelley s stats. If Democrats are looking for a glimmer of sunshine in those numbers, Republicans had a 1.5 percentage point larger edge in 2010. In a tight race, 1.5 points can make the difference. The bigger question in key partisan races is whether Democrats will be motivated enough to turn out on Tuesday to overcome the GOP mail ballot advantage. Two key races In the Senate District 34 race between Nguyen and Solorio, Democrats have a 4-percentage point advantage in voter registration but trail in mail ballots by 6 points as of Thursday, according to Political Data Inc. That 10-point gap is barely better than the countywide gap of 11 points. In the Assembly District 65 race between Kim and Quirk-Silva, Democrats have a 1-point advantage in voter registration and trail in mail ballots by 8 points, for a gap of 9 points.

While I still have questions and concerns about some of these, I do think it is fair to point out that Microsoft appears to be more inclined to listen to the consumers this time around rather than do their usual take it or leave it stance.

I don't have any trust in sunbeams and fairy breath solutions to provide a large and steady capacity for the UK's energy needs, both now and in the future. They may be useful as a supplementary supply but their cost far outweighs their usefulness.

Whether this is through their naive beliefs in alternative energy as an effective supply or is driven by other more cynical and financial motives is anyone's guess. Build gas powered generators, fueled by cheap fracked gas from the USA, a solid guaranteed supply, in the short term and a fleet of Neuks for the future.
