Africa Safaris to the Lake Nakuru National Park Tour is the most popular among conference delegates

Nairobi Kenya, 2016-Jul-22 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Each country in Africa is different. We acknowledge that it is impossible to capture the spirit and culture of an entire country in one paragraph. The best and most popular areas in Africa for safaris are East Africa precisely Kenya which offers vast plains and roaming packs of extraordinary beasts.

Lake Nakuru National Park Tour

The Lake Nakuru National Park tour which can also be booked online through Get Your Guide booking site or https://www.getyourguide.com/nairobi-l267/lake-nakuru-national-park-full-day-tour... has become increasingly popular to the delegates attending conferences in Nairobi Kenya. The main reason being the proximity to Nairobi and the time taken which is about 11 hours. While delegates spend their time in meeting rooms and discussion at the end of the day they end up very tired. To unwinding before going back to their countries of residence an 11 hour tour from Nairobi comes in handy. Ones get to see the countryside of Nairobi as well as wildlife and birds at the National Park. The tour is mainly set to depart at 6am and return at 6pm making it easy for clients to connect to their international flights which are normally scheduled in the late evenings. However, if the flight is early one can request for an early arrival or take a full day tour in Nairobi visiting the Nairobi National Park, Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe center, Karen Blixen with lunch at the famous top 100 restaurants of the world the Carnivore Restaurant. Better still a short morning tour to the Nairobi National Park and elephant Orphanage can suffice.

Many travelers come to Africa in search of the “big five”: buffalo, lions, leopards, elephants and rhinoceroses. The chance to get close to these animals in their natural habitats is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but your trip to the Africa is anything but a trip to the zoo. Safaris can be physically taxing and strenuous, and you may not see all the animals you expected. Since most safari destinations are in developing sub-Saharan nations, travelers must take certain safety and health precautions. If you’re planning a safari (or just dreaming about it), be as prepared as possible. Get some good guidebooks, talk to friends who’ve been to Africa and research, research, research. We’ve outlined some important safari basics, from choosing a destination to getting vaccinated, to help you start planning a successful African adventure such as a day trip to the Lake Nakuru National Park which can be booked online through VIATOR

Search Africa safaris to Kenya National Parks and Nairobi City Tours from one platform – Cruzeiro-safaris.com

Nairobi, Kenya, 2016-May-30 — /EPR Network/ — Going on safari in Kenya https://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya and Tanzania https://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/14-nairobi-safaris/long-safaris/14-adventure-in-the-african-bush during the off-peak seasons is a good option that does not spell game viewing disappointment and miserable weather. In fact, travelling in the low seasons – the long rains from March to June and the short rains from October to December – is an enticing option. The wet seasons (March to June and October to December) also have luminous sunsets and plenty of animals nurturing their young excellent reasons to brave the rain (which, by the way, is patchy rather than perpetual downfall).”

cruzeiro elephants

The shoulder seasons which fall between the low and peak periods offer similar advantages to the low seasons. Falling at the start and end of the rains, the shoulder seasons are often the best time to go on safari in East Africa in terms of balancing cost, game viewing, visitor numbers and weather. The shoulder season between the long and short rains – from January to March, is actually considered by some safari veterans to be the best time to go game viewing in Kenya and Tanzania. https://www.safaribookings.com/p1029

Here are 5 Reasons to go on Safari in East Africa during the Shoulder & Low Seasons
1. Save Money East Africa is not the cheapest of African regions to visit. As the traditional heartland of African wildlife safaris, the prices in East Africa are higher than in most Southern African countries. These higher costs can put budget conscious travelers off, but the good news is that prices drop during the off-peak times of the year, bringing these classical safari destinations within reach. One of the reasons prices fall is because mainstream travel advice is to avoid the rainy seasons and that winter game viewing is best. Also, most travelers tend to travel during the northern hemisphere summer and over Christmas and New Years.
2. You can save between 20 and 40% on safaris outside of the high and peak season.
3. It’s not just the safari packages that are cheaper in low season, the accommodation rates drop saving you money on pre and post tour accommodation. Activities are also offered at reduced prices, as are day trips.
4. If you’re travelling independently in East Africa during low season you also have more leverage for bargaining and negotiating better deals too.
5. Flights are also cheaper, due to lower demand! All-in-all it can make an otherwise too expensive African safari affordable. We are able to enjoy the amazing moorlands, the beautiful snowcaps, mysterious oceans and seas and incredible wildlife. However, it is our responsibility to ensure that whilst we enjoy the marvels of this world we should be conscious of maintaining the conservation of these wonders. https://www.getyourguide.com/mombasa-l443/2-days-tsavo-east-and-west-national-park-safari-in-kenya-t12389/,https://www.getyourguide.com/nairobi-l267/4-day-lake-nakuru-park-and-maasai-mara-reserve-safari-tour-t17780/, https://www.getyourguide.com/nairobi-l267/maasai-mara-safari-from-nairobi-t55408/,

Cheap Airport parking finder AirportParkingHelper.com to expand in 2016

Roanoke, VA, 2016-Apr-29 — /EPR Travel News/ — AirportParkingHelper.com, a leading national authority on airport parking and related travel topics, recently announced a number of expansion plans for 2016.

Website founder Jennifer Church said she has acquired a partner who will provide critical services to the popular Virginia-based website, which plans to nearly double its online reviews for airport parking alternatives in the first half of the year. Expanding the social media presence for AirportParkingHelper.com is also a major initiative planned for 2016.

“I’m thrilled that Andie Gibson, an accomplished writer, editor and social media manager, has come on board to help me lead AirportParkingHelper.com into the next phase of development,” Church said. “Her extensive skill set and professional background will be of great benefit to the site, which has experienced tremendous growth over the past year.”

AirportParkingHelper.com provides online guides to help travelers uncover discount airport parking alternatives to costly on-site lots at major U.S. airports, including Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Oakland (OAK), Detroit (DTW), Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA) and Newark (EWR).

Plans are in the works to add reviews for a number of additional airports, including Philadelphia International (PHL), San Jose International (SJC), Hartford Bradley International (BDL) and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI).

“These are facilities where AirportParkingHelper.com users have told us they want to find cheaper options for short term and long term airport parking,” Church said. “With rates for on-site airport parking so expensive, demand is high for cost-saving alternatives. The new guides will be indispensable for travelers in these markets.”

AirportParkingHelper.com is also ramping up social media efforts to help spread the word on the many ways travelers can save on airport parking – whether it be at offsite lots with free shuttle services, hotels that offer free parking packages, daily deal websites or discount car rental companies.

“Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn are all platforms we utilize to share with travelers the benefits of using Airport Parking Helper,” Church said. “We encourage anyone using social media to like and follow us to stay on top of ways to find practical, helpful information on saving money on short-term and long-term airport parking.”

WorldSIM launches a new international SIM card that ends roaming charges for travellers worldwide

LONDON, March 24, 2016 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Finally the extortionate roaming charges travellers face when they go abroad has become a thing of the past. Roaming experts, WorldSIM have launched a new smart international SIM card that allows international travellers to pay the same rates as locals when they travel overseas. Importantly, users can also roam on their existing number with the use of WorldSIM’s virtual phone number service.

worldsim

In Canada and Mexico, a call back to the US is just 22 cents and it’s free to receive calls. What’s really impressive is that WorldSIM offers international travellers going further afield very low rates as well. In Europe data rates start from 15 cents per MB and so do calls. Incoming calls are free in 95 of the most popular international destinations. The service remains a prepaid service and no subscriptions are required. Just recharge when you need more credit.

The new WorldSIM international sim card also offers roaming in more destinations than most operators worldwide. With their new release sim card, 25 new roaming destinations have been added bringing the total to 195 roaming countries. This means travellers can now stay connected for less in more exotic locations like Belize and the Bolivia.

international sim card

Very soon, WorldSIM will also be launching global bundles, in many destinations travellers will be able to get 1GB of data and unlimited calls for just $30.

This new travel SIM card offers billing in multiple currencies and the technology has been improved to allow the sim to connect automatically to the operators with the best rates and coverage. The roaming SIM works in any unlocked handset and comes triple punched so it fits into all cell phones and tablets.

Arif Reza, CEO at WorldSIM commented “The technology inside our new SIM card is more advanced than ever giving users a simple solution that makes a big difference. With our new line of smart watch phones and WiFi devices you don’t even need to switch SIM cards when you travel.”

With the vacation season approaching thousands of travellers will be hit with unexpected roaming bills and they aren’t the only ones that suffer. Small businesses pay on average $252 per device for bill shock, while larger companies pay up to $395 per device*.

Travel Destination for 2016 is Kenya -Get the thrill and plan Early

Nairobi, Kenya, November 09, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Destination Kenya

Are there any destinations in the world which can evoke such powerful imagery as Kenya, one of East Africa’s premier destinations? Indeed, the acacia-dotted savannahs of Kenya http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya re inhabited by classic African animals, from towering elephants and prancing gazelles to prides of lions and stalking leopards. The country also plays host to the annual migration, the largest single movement of heard animals on the planet. However, what makes Kenya truly stand out as a travel destination is the vast palette of landscapes that comprise this visually stunning country. While the flaunted image of the savannah of Maasai Mara perhaps the single key selling point for Kenya’s tourist industry, intrepid http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=226/ travelers can also explore the barren expanses of the Rift valley, the glacial ridges of Mt. Kenya http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=214/ and the beaches of the Swahili coast. This rich diversity of quintessential Africanhttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/safari-twiga environments present opportunity for hiking, trekking, diving sailing and so much more But to simply focus on Kenya’s wildlife and nature is to ignore the people that make this country so dynamic. Kenya is a thriving multicultural country with a wide cross-section of everything that is classic and contemporary Africa. Everyday life brings together traditional tribes and urban families, ancient customs and modern sensibilities. And, while much of the East Africa has suffered from bitter feud between divided ethnic groups, Kenya has usually been regarded as an island of stability in a trouble region. Kenya may be a somewhat more intimidating destination that it once was, but remains one of the undisputed highlights of Africa. Check your inhibition, ignore the hype, bring your sense of adventure and get ready for some truly inspiring and life-changing travel.

Planning a trip to Kenya is a pleasure in itself: the country is so versatile that it’s virtually a blank canvas, catering equally for the thrill-seekers and sun-seekers, budget backpackers and high-end rollers, those who like it tough and those who just want to get going. Whatever you do here, you’ll discover that it’s very straightforward to sort yourself out of the ground and advance plans are very necessary.

When to go to Kenya: The main tourist season is January, February and March, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easy to spot. However, the parks can get crowded and rates for accommodation soar –also make sure you avoid Christmas and Easter unless you want to pay much higher prices. From June to October, the annual wildebeest migration takes place, with thousands of animals streaming into the Maasai Mara National reserve from Serengeti. During the long rains (the low season April to May) things are much quieter.

Itineraries and Classic Routes
Classic routes put you face to face with the continent’s most charismatic creatures. Safari njema – have a good trip!
Departing from Nairobi, Kenyas capital city one can enjoy the Nairobi city tours at any point where low or high season. Our first port of call is Maasai Mara National Reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/maasai-mara. Between July and October, the Maasai Mara plays host to the annual wildebeest migration, which offers a definitive slice of safari Africa. Even if you can’t time your visit to coincide with this epic event, the Mara is still worth visiting as the famous national park in Kenya. The northern trails leads to Samburu National Reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/143-3-dayssamburu-by-road-lodges, a dusty, red, desert habitat that shelters’ species of animals not found elsewhere in Kenya. The safari trail continues down to Amboseli National Park http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/142-3-days-amboselinational-park-by-road, which is regarded as one of the best places in Africa to get up close and personal with the heads of grazing elephants.

In search of the big five
The ultimate goal of any safari-gore is to spot the Big Five, namely lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. While you’re going to have to put in a lot of hours to spot them all-particularly the elusive leopard – this itinerary will have you ticking them off the list in no time. Start your search at Lake Nakuru National park, an alkaline lake in the Rift Valley, which is home to many thousands of pink flamingos and pelicans. This vitally important national park also protects the country’s largest population of endangered black rhinos, as well as large herds of buffalo. From lake Nakuru, your next stop is the obligatory Maasai Mara National Reservehttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/maasai-mara-by-air-at-kichwa-tembo-tented-campwhich is veritable lion country, With a little luck you can spot leopards lounging in trees, and cheetahs prowling around the savannahs, from Maasai Mara head south to Naivasha and visit the Hells gate National park swim in the hot water sulfuric swimming pool belonging to the geothermal energy plant. Then head south to the Amboseli national park for a wildlife drive through Kilimanjaro court. Against a back drop of Africa’s tallest peak, you will see dozens of elephants. From Amboseli it’s straight forward drive to the Tsavo West National Park and Tsavo East National Park. Kenya’s largest wildlife parks. As they are relatively undeveloped. Tsavo East and West are where you can truly have a wildlife experience. From here you can head down to the highway to ancient Swahili port of Mombasa http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-, where you can either fly straight home or start a whole new journey exploring the Kenyan coast. Indeed, its’ just a short trip south west to the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary a small but important reserve that protects elephants migratory routes, and on to the densely forested Shimba Hills National reserve http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-/230-mombasa-half-day-shiimba-hills home to the rare antelope.

Sun, Surf and Swahili
Whether you’re interest in exploring the remaining vestiges of Swahili culture, or simply kicking it on the beach for days on end, don’t miss the chance to explore Kenya’s sun-drenched coast. From the coastal getaway of Mombasa City, the first stop head south is Tiwi beach, a tranquil white-sand paradise that is popular with independents travelers. Just down the road, you can head on to the package holiday destination of Diani beach for a taste of the more full-on rest experience. Near the Tanzania Border are the Funzi and Wasini islands provide a dose of real, unspoilt coastal life and also afford easy access to the excellent Kisite Marine National Park. Here you can spot the Dolphins http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/about-mombasa-safaris-/234-mombasa-one-day-wasini-dolphin-tracking-adventure-tourcrashing each other it’s a wonderful complement to Kenya’s terrestrial wildlife destinations.

Back to the coastal trail make a quick stop in the charming town of Kilifi before pressing on to the Arabuko Sokoke Forest Reserve on the largest remaining tracts of indigenous coastal forest in East Africa. Further north are the Gede ruins and ancient Swahili City that dates back to the 13th century. Another historic town along the Swahili coast is Malindi, a 14th century trading post that is now one of the country’s leading beach destinations for Italian holiday makers. Your itinerary can end its peaks at the wonderful Lamu archipelago a veritable tropical paradise and Swahili heritage gem. One can take up the Summer Package staying in Mombasa and travelling to the Tsavo Park and back.

Roads Less Travelled: Desert Frontiers
This unbeaten trail winds through the harsh and barren landscapes around Lake Turkana, which dominates the northwest corner of the country. The Eastern getaway to this region is the small town of Isiolo, Just north of Mt Kenya. There are several good national parks and wildlife reserve in this area. One can plough through straight to the desert route and head up the rough road to Marsabit the dusty tribal centre of this remote area which boasts a fine national park. Assuming you are not tempted to hope over the border to Ethiopia at Moyale, a real wild frontier, take the western loop to Turkana via North Horr heading for the tiny lake side settlement of Loiyangalani a base for trips into even more remote parts of the country. From here the trail leads through again passing all kinds of scenic zones and the stopover towns of South Horr and Baragoi. It’s worth stopping for a couple of days in Maralal to replenish supplies and sample the joys of camel-trekking. Your could end your trip here but for the full effect, head up to the other side of Turkana, passing though the lush western area around marich to reach sweltering Lodwar and the lovely lake shore at Eliye Springs http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/260-952-for-3-days-package-to-lake-turkana.

When is the best time to spot animals?
When you visit Kenya’s parks and reserves, you’ll be spending a lot of time craning your neck and keeping watchful eyes out for animals and birds. There are a few telltale signs to note, as we as a few things you can do to maximize your chances of spotting the Big Five. Most are just common sense.

The best time to view wildlife to between 6.30am and 9.30am and from 3.30am to 6.30 pm. Cruzeiro Safaris makes sure they you during these timings. Wildlife drives in the mid of the day are unlikely to turn up much, (although there are popular parks such as Amboseli and Maasai Mara), animals are actually changing their normal hunting habits to avoid the tourist. When the tourists head back to the lodges for lunch, the carnivores go out hunting – in peace. In wooded country, agitated and noisy monkeys or baboons are often a sign that there’s a big cat (probably a leopard) around. Vultures circling are not necessarily an indication of a kill below. But if they are gathering in trees and seem to be watching something, you can reasonably assume they are waiting their turn for a go at a carcass.

One final note – taking longer safari is great, but endless long days peering out of a sunroof, on bumpy roads, in the heat, eating the same food stuck with the same people can take its toll quicker than you might think. Any animal you see on the first day will be exciting, though sooner or later most travelers will experience safari fatigue, that jaded feeling of ‘not another zebra, I wanna see a freaking leopard’. If this happens a few cultural activities and afternoon’s relaxations or even just a quick swim can do wonders for keeping things fresh. Or just take an air package especially for single travelers.

Nairobi and around highlights:
Spotting wildlife in the most incongruous of surroundings at the Nairobi National Park, Watch the gleeful group of baby elephants http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/nairobi-city-tours-/175-daphne-sheldricks-orphanage being bottle-fed at the David Sheldrick Wildlife trust, Tangling tongues with the rubber-necked ungulate at Giraffe centre, Broadening your appreciation of all things cultural and environmental at the National Museum, Surveying the Landscape from the grand heights of the Kenyatta Conference centre, Making the most essential foodie pilgrimage to the Carnivore and dancing it off at the Simba salon. Striking out for some proper exercise, walking through the incredibly scenic Ngong Hills, Visit the 2. And half hour away park to the Lake Nakuru http://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/nairobi-city-tours-/171-lake-nakuru-express-daily national park.

Cruzeiro Safaris take on travel advisories lift TELL TRAVELERS TO TRAVEL

Nairobi, Kenya, July 30, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Tour operators and hoteliers in Kenya are finally having a breather after the travel advisories by the British government were lifted sometime in June, 2015. One can read the full statement on the FCO website for the British embassy. The coming of the President of the United States of America is another plus and boost to the tourism industry. Now travelers can flock the country Kenya with confidence.

The East African Adventure is awaiting all travel enthusiasts to enjoy last minute deals or just plan ahead for the long term safari adventure in 2015 and 2016. One thing for sure is that the annual migration of the wildebeest is still taking place regardless of the presence of any audience. Adventure travelers can take advantage of the 3 country VISA option for Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. As we write this article we received a new circular British and Irish Nationals need a VISA to enter Kenya. The single entry visa allows a re-entry to Kenya from Tanzania and Uganda. Other arrangements can be made to Ethiopia and Zambia.

With the successful safari of camel derby in 2013 where we took a group of people and they won several awards in the derby, this year 2015 we anticipate to take even a large group of people. The takes place from 14-16 August, 2015 in Maralal, Samburu County. We have more information on our website and how to bookhttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/274-fansof-maralal-carmel-derby-

Starting off is Kenya with its adventurous Game reserves or National Reserves which are set up and managed by the local authority where they located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such areas are declared game reserves. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Maasai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. Golf holidays with adventure are also increasingly becoming popular. Adventures and sports enthusiasts are not left behing with the amazing 20days safari in Kenya and Tanzania with highlight visits to:

  • Maasai Mara National Reserve
  • Lake Nakuru National Park  
  • Lake Naivasha National Park  
  • Hells Gate National Park – cycling, walking, oljorowa gorge, sulphuric pool
  • Mount Longonot National Park 
  • climbing the crater approx 20kms  
  • Aberdares National Park 
  • Karura falls
  • Mount Kenya National park -mount climbing
  • Sweetwaters Sanctuary or Samburu National reserve
  • Amboseli National Park  
  • Tarangire National Park  
  • Serengeti National Par
  • Ngorongoro Crater  and Park 
  • Olduvai gorge  
  • Lake Manyara National Park  
  • Nairobi  and Arusha  
  • Carnivore restaurant
  • Nairobi City tour
  • Shopping

Safaris from Mombasa city which is located along the Kenyan Coast, has numerous beach resorts and apartments that one can choose from. City tours of Mombasa and Safaris to Tsavo and Amboseli Parks and the Summer package can be arranged.

We then head to the adventure of Gorilla trekking either in Uganda or Rwanda but we emphasize on Rwanda this time. Another breed of the Golden monkeys is also within reach from the Volcanoes National Park. The Golden monkey is a local sub-species of the widespread Sykes Monkey, also known as the ‘Blue Monkey” and is endemic to the high altitude forest of the Volcanoes National Park areas. The monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend time leaping form bamboo branches or flicking on the forest floor. Visitors are permitted to stay for 1 hour with the Golden monkeys just as with the Mountain Gorillas. In 4 days you can spend time in Rwanda on full adventure.

As much as it’s not on the agreement for the #EACVISA, Tanzania is also worth visiting. When we talk of Tanzania what comes in mind is its fame of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti or the spice Island of Zanzibar that comes in to our minds. Even though some tourist destinations have remained unpretentious and have hardly been exposed to the outside world. Departing on Sunday they offer 12 days of the Best of Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Another adventure that one can combine with the above 2 is the visit to Victoria Falls in Zambia or famously knows as Vic Falls. Taking a 5 day trip to the Livingstone area, Botswana for a river safari get on the 4×4 trucks for a game driver in the Chobe National park, take a guided tour to Vic falls and fly over the falls with a helicopter. Later on take a sunset cruise on Zambezi River. They package it to fly from Nairobi’s capital and return there. This makes it easy for one to just book their inward and outbound flights from home to Nairobi.

Short tours or trips can be organized locally from Nairobi, Mombasa or Arusha.

This is the right season for travelers all over the world to head to Kenya.

A Sweet Spin on Moonshine for Bloomery Distillery

Charles Town, West Virgina, July 03, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — FlipKey.com, the vacation rental company of leading travel site TripAdvisor has published its list of the 50 most loved and most talked about food and drink tours in almost every state across the U.S. And in West Virginia, the winner is Bloomery Plantation Distillery.

Capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries and the nostalgia for moonshine, Bloomery’s SweetShine line of naturally flavored liqueurs are handcrafted from farm-fresh roots, fruits, and nuts.

The freshness of the line’s ingredients cannot be questioned, with all agricultural ingredients grown at the distillery’s own farm, local neighboring farms or other small American farms.

To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have toured the distillery to savor an artisanal cocktail – whether it’s the ‘moonshine milkshake’ innovatively called Cremma Lemma or the chilled Chocolate Raspberry (a shot in hot coffee is bound to change one’s morning routine). With more than twenty-one international awards and too many cocktail enthusiast praises to count, the company is doing its part to take the restaurant, bar and hospitality industries to tasty new levels.

The entire process of creating the SweetShine line is handcrafted – from the hand-zesting of every lemon to the hand-chopping of the ginger to the hand-making of syrups to the actual handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Company founder Linda Losey claims with pride, “Consumers like a little bit of the unusual and appreciate our whimsical approach, but quality and taste are paramount – this is why we grow our own Italian lemons and Hawaiian ginger as well as our own black walnuts, pumpkins, and raspberries. Losey goes on to say, “Our fans trust our brand…and are comfortable and confident that when they grab a bottle of SweetShine, they can add it to any of their current cocktails and they’ll create a fresher, higher quality, premium cocktail that was a breeze to make.”

Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states and is on the fast track to further expand distribution.

About Bloomery SweetShine
Since opening as a mini-distillery in the agri-tourism industry in September of 2011, Bloomery Plantation Distillery has been capitalizing on the craving for locally sustainable craft distilleries, the nostalgia for the prohibition-era and the explosion of fruit flavored liqueurs through its hand-crafted, award-winning SweetShine line. With a sweet spin on moonshine, the company makes moonshine drinkable through its award-winning liqueurs that are hand-crafted from farm-fresh fruits, roots and nuts. To date, more than 60,000 premium drink devotees have visited the distillery to enjoy a SweetShine artisanal cocktail of their own amid affable company.

The distillery boasts a wildly unique, imaginative and fiercely dedicated staff led by company founder, Linda Losey. For staffers, SweetShine represents far more than just a product line but rather is regarded as a foundational philosophy—an adventurous and even risk-taking way of doing things…a spirited and amusing outlook on life. This viewpoint guides everything the company creates, and Bloomery’s passionate one-of-a-kind team attracts customers from around the world who believe in, connect with and trust the SweetShine brand.

The distillery, located two miles east of Charles Town, West Virginia, is situated on a 12-acre parcel of land where they grow farm-fresh ingredients used in the elixirs, including ginger, raspberries and lemons, among others. Putting their unique spin on the process of making moonshine, Bloomery’s all natural SweetShine is crafted using time-honored recipes with 190 proof ‘shine, pure cane sugar and garden-grown ingredients. The entire process is hand-crafted—from the hand-zesting of every lemon, to the hand-chopping of the ginger, to the hand picking of raspberries, to the hand-making of its syrups, to the handwriting that goes on every bottle of every label. Each batch is individually proofed; the finished liqueurs range from 40° to 70°. Truly handcrafted. And it shows. Just a touch of SweetShine quickly creates a classic cocktail with a twist—goodbye to boring unadventurous drinking! Bloomery SweetShine is currently distributed to retailers, bars and restaurants in 42 states, and continues to expand distribution nationally.

Dave Sturdevant’s harmonica brings a Toots Thielemans-style to the show, in addition to the gypsy sound of his swinging guitar.

French songs by Charles Trenet, Maxime LeForestier, Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg round out the set list, and as ever, Lua’s fun and quirky stories provide her personalized bridge to the songs, whether you speak French or not.

Hadar is no stranger to France or French music, having just returned from teaching a master class in France on American Jazz Standards.

ABOUT TWIST:
Since its inception in 2007, Hadar’s cosmopolitan jazz ensemble TWIST has developed a multi-lingual world jazz fusion that twists the styles of international standards and brings new material into the jazz idiom.

Lua has charmed audiences from New York’s Iridium Jazz Club to Bangkok’s Thailand Cultural Center to the Swan Bar in Paris, where, on a return engagement, she previewed “C’est Magnifique!” to an enthusiastic full house before bringing it to San Francisco’s Society Cabaret for its first run in November 2013. The show was reprised last year and became a Society Cabaret tradition, presented each time with a different featured instrumentalist.

Hadar has released three CDs with Music Director Jason Martineau and Twist. The most recent, “Like A Bridge,” was recorded in 2012 as the centerpiece of her Bridges Project. The “Like A Bridge” DVD was nominated for an Independent Music Award and was released at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland in September of 2013 after its premiere at San Francisco’s Historic Balboa Theater.

“…such a lovely variety of songs from cabaret traditions of Paris (and beyond), that we might as well have been in a brick-walled basement room in the Quartier Latin.” – Talkin’ Broadway

“First call band of international talent and an innate gift of swing.” – Critical Jazz

LondonTown.com: London landscapes celebrated in new exhibition

South London parks are the subject of new photographic exhibition at the Horniman Museum.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A new photographic exhibition celebrating London’s lesser-known landscapes open this month at one of London’s friendliest museums. South London Landscapes is now open at the Horniman Museum And Gallery this week and runs throughout the summer, featuring photographs of the Horniman itself as well as other picturesque public spaces in and around south London. The Horniman is one of London’s liveliest small museums, boasting excellent natural history and music galleries, a small aquarium and extensive landscaped grounds. For more information, and to see the latest deals on London hotels, see LondonTown.com.

South London Landscapes features photographs taken by London-based landscape photographer Max A Rush. The photographs, which include pictures of the Horniman Gardens, are taken in unusual and beautiful weather and capture how the passage of the seasons and the forces of the weather transform the appearance and character of the local landscape. Areas featured in South London Landscapes include Brockwell Park, Crystal Palace Park, Dulwich Park, Dulwich Wood, Ruskin Park and the Horniman Gardens.

Max Rush says: ‘These are a few of my favourite locations around south London. I’ve continually returned to them over the years, watching the seasons pass and the elements batter, freeze and occasionally warm their well-worn faces. I’ve witnessed moments of transcendental beauty in familiar places and endeavoured to capture them as truthfully as I can. So many people fight their way out of the city every week for the sake of nature, but perhaps what they’re looking for was here all along.’ For more information on this and other exhibitions and events taking place at the Horniman this summer, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Groundbreaking London exhibition looks at post-war Black British artists

Guildhall Art Gallery explores the work of little-known but pivotal Afro-Caribbean artists

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A groundbreaking new exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery in the City of London will look at the little-known and rarely exhibited history of 20th-century Black British art. No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 runs from 10 July 2015 to 24 January 2016, and will explore the history of art produced by Britain’s Afro-Caribbean citizens, reflecting their experiences in the country after the major emigrations that occurred following the end of the Empire at the conclusion of the Second World War. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London this summer, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find information on London events and cheap London hotels.

At the heart of the exhibition will be a recreation of the Bogle-L’Ouverture Walter Rodney bookshop, created by renowned artist and curator Dr Michael McMillan (West Indian Front Room) and sound and visual specialists, Dubmorphology. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a stunning multi-sensory, multi-visual experience including works of art, sculpture, photographs, paintings, letters and other artefacts from more than 25 prominent Black artists during this period including Eddie Chambers, Sonia Boyce, Denzil Forrester and Chila Kumari Burman.

Influenced by the emergence of newly independent African and Caribbean states, global liberation struggles, the fight against unfair discrimination and an insistence on dignified citizenship within Britain, these artists found expression by way of ‘creation for liberation’. The exhibition will explore these struggles and celebrate their contribution through four themes: ‘Elbow Room’, ‘Broad Shoulders’, ‘Clenched Fists’ and ‘Open Arms’.

Throughout its tenure, No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 will also play host to a series of scheduled events enriching the visitor experience through a diverse range of educational talks, workshops and gallery tours. For more information on this and other exhibitions in the City of London, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Cutting-edge US artist receives first major European show in London this summer

Raven Row gallery in Spitalfields hosts a retrospective of ground-breaking US artist Larry Johnson.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — One of America’s most interesting contemporary artists is to receive his first major European exhibition at a new gallery that focuses on cutting-edge, avant-garde art. Raven Row is a non-profit contemporary art exhibition centre in Spitalfields that is housed within two eighteenth-century merchants’ houses integrated with new galleries and its next exhibition, Larry Johnson: On Location runs from 11 June to 9 August 2015. It is directed and funded by Alex Sainsbury of the Sainsbury family, whose family have funded many great art projects in London, such as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery. Raven Row is a very different enterprise, offering thoughtful shows on lesser-known artists and allowing visitors to explore the fascinating quarter of Spitalfields. The area is filled with fashionable boutiques, great shops and cool bars and restaurants. To explore its attractions, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest room rates for hotels in London.

On Location brings together a selection of works by Larry Johnson from the early 1990s to the present. The show’s uncontested star is Los Angeles, the city in which Johnson has lived and worked all his life. For over thirty years, LA’s physical and imaginary appearance has served as the set for the artist’s photo-based investigations of the glamour industry, replete with fading stars and premature deaths. Johnson’s work bears the marks of a generation of artists sampling readymade images and texts to create seductively laconic pictures. Yet the colourful sheen of Johnson’s photo-based works is also a foil for sexual, political and semantic tension. The artist’s pictures are encryptions of a Hollywood demi-monde, referring to the cultures from which his work emerges queer, political, filmic and theoretical.

The exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based writer Bruce Hainley, and by Antony Hudek, Curator and Deputy Director of Raven Row. Commie Pinko Guy, a publication edited by Hainley with new essays by Morgan Fisher, Lisa Lapinski, Hainley, Hudek and Wayne Koestenbaum, as well as reprints of classic underground queer writing, will accompany the exhibition. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London’s cutting-edge contemporary art scene, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Classic London cinema at the Southbank all summer

BFI Southbank unveils new season dedicated to films exploring the UK capital.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London On Film is a new major season of films at the BFI Southbank that will explore and celebrate the capital for four months from 1st July to 9th October. This is the first time the BFI has ever celebrated the city in which it is based, and will feature 200 films, a number of which have been unseen since they were first filmed, offering an extraordinary perspective of the city from the past 120 years. The BFI Southbank is the national home of cinema, featuring three state-of-the-art screens in Waterloo on the Southbank.For more on this vital cultural quarter, as well as the latest rates forLondon hotels, seeLondonTown.com.

The London On Film season will include events such as a Soho Weekender (24-26 July) to celebrate the unique culture of Soho captured in films from 1896 – 1985 such as West End Jungle (1961), The Small World of Sammy Lee(1963) and Sunshine in Soho (1956). There will also be a discussion event Vanishing Soho on the state of Soho today in the light of current major changes for those who live and play there. It will include some of the earliest films ever made, such as RW Paul’s Blackfriars Bridge (1896(. Films from major filmmakers include Anthony Asquith’s evocative Underground (1928), the first feature to be shot on the underground and Nicolas Roeg’s Performance (1970), which takes us into the dangerous realms of psychedelic and sexual experimentation. There will also be films by Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Winterbottom and Otto Preminger.

Black experience is highlighted in a series of key films including Earl Cameron’s pioneering role as a black sailor in the crime drama Pool of London (1951) with fine use of locations around Tower Bridge, Poplar, Southwark and the City; Cameron also stars in the little seen The Heart Within (1957) another crime thriller set in London’s Docklands. Sapphire (Basil Dearden, 1959) is a film-maker’s response to the Notting Hill race riots wrapped up in a murder mystery while Babylon (Franco Rosso, 1981) shows the demoralisation of black youth, and offers an eerily prescient portrait of the situation in Deptford which would give rise to the Brixton Riots of the same year.
