Enjoy a beer at these famous Munich biergartens

One of the things that Germany is known for, in addition to its beautiful landscape and vibrant history, is its beer. In fact, ancient Germans began crafting brews as far back as 1000 B.C.

And as a result of a brewing process that generally uses just water, barley, hops and yeast, the beer is deliciously simple and rich tasting. One place to really get a taste of German's love of this drink is to visit a biergarten. According to Reuters, the best around the world are all in Munich, including:

1) Hirschgarten – Munich, Germany
This is the largest biergarten in Germany. Benches scattered around the outdoor space can seat more than 8,000 people. Chestnut trees that are two centuries old line the property, and deer wander around freely. The beautiful setting and, of course, wide selection of brews has launched it to the top of Reuter's list.

2) Taxisgarten – Munich, Germany
This biergarten has been open since 1924. On any given day, it serves up to 1,500 residents and tourists. Many people don't know that Taxisgarten used to be a medical clinic for WWI veterans. It's also so close to Bavaria's biggest maternity clinic, many new parents enjoyed a pint here.

3) Airbräu – Munich Airport, Germany
The next time you have some free time at the Munich airport, have a brew at Airbräu. It's located between terminals one and two. According to Reuters, it's the only biergarten in an airport that adheres to brewing standards from the 1500s.

During your time in Munich, whether you're getting from the airport or to another biergarten, use an executive transportation service like Hermes Worldwide. Their experienced chauffeurs will take you where you need to go so you don't have to worry about driving after a few brews.

Looking for the perfect fall vacation? Then visit Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Imagine waking up every morning and realizing that you are in one of the most gorgeous and pristine places in the United States: Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In addition to the myriad things to do in the winter like skiing at various five-star resorts, visitors can take advantage of the activities that are available when there isn't snow on the ground.

If you are traveling to Jackson Hole this fall, you shouldn't leave without doing the following things:

This is the perfect place to see wildlife at its finest. As you ride your bike or take a guided tour through the conservation, you'll be amazed at how many hundreds of elk you're surrounded by.

Every year, more than 80,000 people walk through the doors of the museum. The building is more than 51,000-square feet and overlooks the 25,000-acre National Elk Refuge. The museum houses American art from the 1800s and 1900s ranging from explorer art to Impressionism.

3) Fly fishing
Try your luck at one of the best places to catch a number of different types of trout. As you and your guide go out on the Snake River, you'll be surrounded by, among other beautiful things, the mountains of Grand Teton National Park.

Tourism in Saudi Arabia continues to grow, according to report from WTO

When people think of exotic travel destinations, one place that comes to mind is the Middle East. There, vacationers have the chance to explore a land filled with delicious food, a rich history and fascinating culture. And if you’re looking for a country that embodies everything fabulous that this region has to offer, then consider vacationing in Saudi Arabia.

Over the past few years, major cities like Jeddah and the capital, Riyadh, have played host to 10.9 million visitors in 2010, according to the World Tourism Organization (WTO). Furthermore, vacationers helped launch Saudi Arabia to the number five spot in Arab world tourism revenues.

As a result of these impressive figures, the tourism industry has been growing and will continue to do so.

Two years from now, 15.8 million visitors are predicted to visit the country and plans for more than 380,000 new hotel rooms are in the works. As if that isn’t impressive enough, that number is expected to increase to 424,000 by 2016. The end result? Tourists will have more options than ever when it comes to selecting where they want to stay in this unique country.

If you’ll be spending your time off here, you can be sure that whether you’re in Saudi Arabia for a week or a month, you’ll leave the country with memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

Of course, when you are in a foreign country where you may not speak the language, you should always make sure that you have a transportation service that understands you and cares. To make sure that happens, book a luxury limousine with Hermes Worldwide, an executive transportation service that offers experienced chauffeurs and top-notch customer service.

3 tips you should rely on for international business travel

If you work in business, you’ve probably had to go outside the country at some point or another. As smooth as you’d like your travels to go, it’s likely that there have been some occasions that have made you want to scream. Maybe the hotel you had a reservation at was overbooked or your flight was delayed, but in any case, these instances can get any trip off to the wrong start.

To avoid any bumps along the road in the future when going abroad for work, follow these tips from Gadling.com, AOL’s travel blog:

1) Check availability from time to time
After you’ve purchased your ticket, return to the website you bought it from and take a look at how the seats are filling up. For example, if you’re in the middle, check to see if any in the aisle or window are available about a week before you’re set to leave. In some instances, you may be able to upgrade for free or a very small fee.

2) Don’t fly in the day before your meeting
You may feel like saving the company you work for a bit of money by flying into the country the day before you’re supposed to give that important presentation. However, this isn’t a good idea. After all, flights may be delayed or cancelled at the last minute. As a result, you may have been left rushing frantically to your meeting or missing it altogether.

3) Know what papers you need
Let’s say your employer is going to send you to Tokyo for a couple months. Approximately 90 days before you’re set to leave, you should begin investigating what paperwork you’ll need to have while abroad. Certain cities require travelers to have a work visa while they’re there and this type of documentation usually takes a while to obtain.

For dependable service, book transportation in one of Hermes Worldwide‘s luxury limousines. Not only can you rely on our experienced chauffeurs to get you to your destination on time, you’ll also arrive at your meeting refreshed and relaxed.

Addition to London’s Heathrow airport could mean floating runway

London’s Heathrow airport is perhaps one of the most well known crossroads of the world. Whether you’re traveling to Dubai, Paris or Tokyo, there’s a high probability that, at one point or another, you boarded another airplane or had a layover here.

And because of Heathrow’s popularity, a recent report from various news sources revealed that possible plans for expansion are in the works. Rumors have surfaced that additional runways may be built – on water.

If it sounds too odd to be true, think again. The news sources reported that there is some logic to the blueprint. These four floating runways would be dubbed London Britannia Airport and would measure three miles in length. To keep them in place, they’d be anchored to the ocean floor. Marine tunnels would purportedly transport passengers in trains to rail stations and various other transportation hub spots in the surrounding area.

”The design’s inherent flexibility creates a platform whereby runways can be floated in as required and taken away for maintenance in the future. The concept allows for future expansion to accommodate six runways when required,” said a statement from Gensler, the architecture firm that is behind the idea.

This innovative idea could cost up to 60 billion Euros or approximately $97.2 billion.

Until plans are put into action, travelers will continue to fly into Heathrow. If you’re coming to England’s capital on vacation or for business, consider using a London airport transfer service like Hermes Worldwide. Imagine how relaxed and refreshed you’ll feeling arriving to your hotel or home in a luxury limousine driven by one of Hermes experienced chauffeurs.

After attending the first presidential debate, return to a suite at the Burnsley All Suite Hotel in Denver

On Wednesday, October 3, thousands of people will gather at the University of Denver to watch Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama face off in the first presidential debate. If you're one of the lucky ticket-holders from out of town, one of the things you'll need to consider is where to stay.

If you're looking for a hotel that combines the ultimate in luxury and customer service, then you may want to book a room at the Burnsley All Suite Hotel. Located at 1000 Grant Street, the Burnsley is just 10 minutes from the university.

Imagine staying in one of the "Executive City View" suites which will offer you 700 square feet of you own living quarters. As you get ready for the debate, you'll be able to look out and see breathtaking views of the city's skyline.

After you come back from the event, make yourself a meal in the spacious kitchen, watch a little television in your own living room and rest your weary eyes in your unbelievably comfortable king size bed. In the morning, go down and visit the hotel's restaurant to treat yourself to a breakfast of champions. Whether you crave wheat berry french toast or crab benedict, you'll leave the dining room feeling satisfied and ready to conquer the day.

Aside from the Burnsley, there are plenty of other great accommodations options in the area such as Fairfield Inn and Suites, Courtyard Marriott and Hampton Inn and Suites.

During your time in this phenomenal city, don't worry about trying to rent a car or take a cab to and from the debate. After all, trying to find a parking spot will be nearly impossible. Instead, use a chauffeur service like Hermes Worldwide. Door-to-door service will take away any stress of getting to the university and your hotel.
