One of the most popular ways to get some winter sun has got to be hitting the pearly slopes of The Alps; and where better to head than the French resort of Les Arcs. Comprised of 5 locations, there is something for all; from the mountainous town of Bourg Saint Maurice which is favoured by hikers to the 5* Ski Resort of Arc 1950. 

We asked Airport Parking Shop customers Howard and Zuzana, who are avid fans of Snowboarding in Les Arcs, to give us some inside, need to know knowledge of the resort! They frequently visit Arc 1600, Arc 1800 and Arc 2000 and give a run down of what they offer below.

Claustrophobia affects tens of thousands of people in the UK alone. It can cause many problems within your life, especially when it comes to flying. As part of BlogVember, we thought it would be interesting to explore this and speak to the people it affects everyday.

Claustrophobia is the fear of being enclosed or shut in a small space and not being able to get out. Sufferers are often looking for the nearest exit and will sometimes avoid busy and crowded places.This feeling can grow from a past experience and can affect people’s lives daily for many years. Sufferers can experience claustrophobia in cubicles, small rooms and crowds and often these feelings are increased when on a plane.

Lost Items Airports

We’ve all had that sinking feeling when you step on the plane, or in the taxi departing the airport where you realise there’s something missing. There’s nothing worse than knowing there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it for the time being!

Whether it’s a suitcase, an iPhone, your favourite book, your wallet or your sunglasses, it’s all extremely frustrating. Most airports have a lost and found system in place, and Heathrow Airport use missingx.com, where you can log in and register something as lost, or see if it has been found at the airport.

We had a skim through the items there and found some pretty great things that people have left behind at Heathrow Airport! Read More

Sun goes by the sea in Playas De Las Americas Sunset in Tenerife

The land of eternal spring – more commonly known as Tenerife, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and has pleasant weather all year round; one of the many reasons why so many people flock to the island each year! I visited the Island for the first time back in June and had a truly amazing experience. I was shocked however to learn that it was only recently the Island had undergone a massive transformation and that not so long ago, Tenerife was associated with corruption and debauchery. It is clear to see that the island has come a long way since then and today it is home to some of the most picturesque beaches, luxurious hotels, jaw dropping landscapes and world class attractions; not to mention its fantastic nightlife.
