Switzerland doesn’t have that many major airports but the ones it has got, certainly pack in the tourists. Around 40m travellers arrived in Switzerland last year by plane, far outnumbered by the hundred million that arrived across the country’s borders. Of that 40m over half were served by Zurich Airport with a further quarter served by Geneva Airport although many passengers to Geneva arrive on the French side. So what is the attraction of these two cities and the others that make up the top five, Basel, Lugano and Bern?

If however, part of your holiday experience is to try something new in your holiday destination then this might give you some ideas, some of which have the potential to end your holiday prematurely whilst others will give you bragging rights at the pub on your return, especially if you can show the video on your iPhone.

One of the main things you consider when planning a holiday is what the weather is going to be like and if you’ve decided to holiday in the UK this summer it will be a major concern for you. Already we’ve had the Isle of Wight Festival which was virtually washed out, with festival goers having to live, let alone sleep, in their  cars as roads were flooded and then blocked with abandoned vehicles.

In planning a wedding, most people are concerned with making sure that everything goes to plan on the day and generally, through over-planning by the bride and her mother, everything does go well. Once the wedding ceremony and the party afterwards are over it’s the honeymoon that has to come up to expectation. Long gone are the days when the bride and groom would leave from their reception and head straight off on their honeymoon with now often a few days passing before they jet off for some special time together. Planning the honeymoon is just as important, for you don’t want the glow of the wedding to wear off when you arrive at a hotel that is not quite what you were expecting!

America’s top twenty busiest airports served over 600m passengers last year with the top five serving nearly half of those. It would make a good trivia question to ask someone to name the top five and you’d be right to suggest that Chicago and Los Angeles would be in the list but would you be surprised to find that New York’s JFK and Washington’s Dulles didn’t make it? Instead the rest of the top five are made up of Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson, Denver’s International and Dallas’ Fort Worth Airport.

Let’s face it, many of us could do with shedding a few pounds but the problem is, whilst we may have dieted our way into our swimming shorts or bikini, it doesn’t take long on holiday for the pounds to pile back on.  Many of us see our fortnight in the sun as the chance to gorge ourselves and guzzle endless free beers and cocktails as part of our all-inclusive package. Putting on the pounds needn’t be a problem if we choose our holiday destinations wisely and some can actually help with our diets.
