A remarkable journey
Our goal is not to improve on what has been done before – but to totally reimagine it.
This is a statement from Etihad Airways, and judging by the number of fans this airline has and the sheer number of awards, World Travel Awards Winner 2016 - Middle East's Leading Airline & World's Leading Airline they are doing just that, ensuring their customers have a remarkable journey, from start to finish.
Having flown with this carrier myself on numerous occasions and by choice, I can only agree with the accolades showered upon them, their management and thousands of staff deserve high praise indeed.

The rise of the ‘friendly-moon’ - Newlyweds no longer #honeymoon by themselves

A study of recently married couples has revealed that many are spending their honeymoon holidaying… with friends.
Cyprus emerged as the most popular destination for ‘friendly-moons’ followed by #Jamaica (a finalist in the 'World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination' category at the prestigious #WorldTravelAwards 2016 Grand Final), America, Dominican Republic and Mexico.

The team behind online travel agency http://www.sunshine.co.uk put the question “Did you spend your honeymoon with just your partner, or did other people go with you?” to 2,768 people aged 18 and over from the UK who had become married in the last 12 months.

A staggering 22 per cent of the respondents revealed they hadn’t honeymooned alone. Rather they had opted for friendly-moons with friends (52%), siblings (31%) and parents or in-laws (12%).

Respondents were asked who picked the honeymoon destination, to which the majority (55%) said the groom did.

Those polled who plumped for friendly-moons, were also quizzed as to why the decided to invite others along on their honeymoon. The majority (53%) replied that they felt it would be "too boring" without others to which Chris Clarkson, managing director of sunshine.co.uk, commented:

“Those wanting others to tag along on the honeymoon because they think the honeymoon might be too boring with just their other half, [….] need to re-consider if that relationship is right for them! If you can’t spend a week or two with just your partner for company, something isn’t quite right…”

Russia visa free - Visa-free visits of up to 72 hours for passengers arriving in St Petersburg by plane, could soon be possible

Georgy Poltavchenko, governor of St. Petersburg, has asked president Vladimir Putin to introduce a 72-hour visa-free regime for foreigners arriving in Russia’s second largest city by air.
Later this year St Petersburg will welcome #WorldTravelAwards to Russia for the first time, with the brand’s Europe Gala Ceremony 2017 (https://www.worldtravelawards.com/event/europe-2017) set to take place in the Russian capital of culture on 30 September 2017.

The 72-hour visa-free regime in St. Petersburg has been in place for tourists arriving by water transport since 2009.

It’s hoped that the measure - if approved - may help increase interest in St Petersburg, especially among European tourists who could easily fly into St. Petersburg Pulkovo airport and visit the city for a weekend.

Not that St Petersburg needs much help grabbing travellers’ attention right now…. 2017 marks 100 years since the Russian Revolution started in St Petersburg sparking a brief period of democratic rule before the Bolsheviks seized power, meaning that the city is already firmly in the spotlight.

St Petersburg was also recently named one of the top 25 destinations in the world by TripAdvisor, in the travel site’s 2017 Travellers' Choice Awards.

Russia’s northern capital claimed the ninth spot on the 25 World Destinations list - based on millions of reviews and opinions written by travellers from around the globe - with the city’s historic Old Town Square, State Hermitage Museum, Winter Palace and St Vitus Cathedral singled out as ‘must-sees’ for visitors.

Formerly known as Leningrad, St Petersburg was one of the big winners at World Travel Awards 2016 Grand Final. The prestigious awards - an annual event with winners voted for by a jury of international hospitality experts - hailed St Petersburg as the World's Leading Cultural City Destination, ahead of the likes of London, New York, Paris, Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Sydney and Venice.



First up though, St Petersburg will host the Confederations Cup - an important football tournament ahead of the 2018 World Cup that Russia will stage - from the 17 June- 2 July 2017.
