Creative Ideas for Thanksgiving Family Traditions


Thanksgiving Family Traditions

Thanksgiving is the time of year when families will get together and break bread over all of the things that have happened during the previous year. It is a time when we celebrate the harvest and a time when we give thanks for all of the good things that we have such as our food, our families, and our health. It is also one of the only holidays in the United States when people are able to, almost universally, get time off of their work to enjoy some time to themselves. This is an issue which is often brought up in labor debate talks.

With that being said, there are always going to be certain traditions that each family has which are completely unique. While most families will have some version of getting together and eating as a family unit, others will make time each  year to do volunteer or give to charity. Some others may do something like hunting (though this is usually something reserved for families who are familiar with this type of thing) and for many Americans Thanksgiving means football. Regardless, tradition is something that runs very deep in the United States around the time of Thanksgiving.


thanksgiving-family-traditions-kemwel3Something Different

Trying something different on a major holiday like Thanksgiving could, in many families, almost be considered akin to heresy. Many families have had the same traditions for years and do not want to just change them for no good reason when nothing is wrong with them. Even so, there are times when a family might want to try something new – starting a new and exciting tradition to enjoy together for years to come. Perhaps something has happened in your family which has led everyone to be a little bit farther apart than they have in the past. If that is the case for you, consider trying something new as a way to reconnect and bring your loved ones together.

One possibility, of course, is travel. Most people simply overlook travel as something that is outside of their budget or more hassle than it is worth. Even so, that is not always the case. When you think about travel, a lot of people see it as an all-or-nothing type of event. Instead, consider the fact that you and your family or a group of your close friends could all pool your money together and splurge on a huge trip. Perhaps to Europe. Travel is something that will always have the ability to bring people closer together on an emotional level as well as a physical level. Taking a trip with loved ones is an investment in your relationships and you’re likely to cherish the memories you make for years to come. And, of course, it also gives you something else that you can all be thankful for besides simply your health and the food that is in front of you.

If you choose to travel and want to tour around Europe, a travel staple of the western world (particularly for people in the United States) consider booking your trip with the Kemwel family. We provide high quality travel services, from cheap car rentals and hotels to  in Europe to great deals on airfare, and can help you secure the best rates on all aspects of your trip. Give us a call at 1-877-820-0668 or book online today to start your new Thanksgiving family tradition!



How to Rent a Car Cheap Whenever You Travel This Fall

Fall Travel Around the World

Fall is one of the best seasons to travel and finding a way to rent a car cheap can help expand your options exponentially. With the plethora of holidays taking place during the fall season, it gives people plenty of extra time off to indulge in things that they are interested in. One of those things, of course, is travel.

rent a car cheap, fall travel

There are a few reasons why fall is a great season for travel:

  • Changing leaves – Fall is truly a season of color. The leaves on the trees are transitioning from their steady growth during the summer to their dormant stage during the winter. This transition includes a changing of the leaves from a bright green color to a vibrant mix of reds, yellows, and oranges.
  • Discounted rates – Since fall is the beginning of the off season, everything will be cheaper. Flights are not in as high demand, so it will be less expensive to fly places. Many hotels and eateries will also have discount deals for the off season.
  • Milder temperatures – Fall has some of the most stable temperatures during any season. The only issue is that it can bring rain in some areas. Otherwise, it is “smooth sailing”. The temperature in most of Europe will be cool, but not too cold.
  • Off season – As mentioned in the discounted rates entry, this is the off season in many places. This is going to be a major benefit because it will allow you to experience the wonderful things that local areas have to offer while insulating you from the issues that can be caused by too many tourists being around.

Even with the benefits that the fall season has to offer, if you are planning to travel you will still want to do some things in advance. Make sure that you have some sort of plan for your trip and try to take care of anything important in advance (such as securing transportation and lodgings).

Rent a Car Cheap from Kemwel for Fall Travel

So now the only issue is finding a car. Most people believe that a rental car isn’t a necessity when they’re traveling abroad. They are content to rely on public  transportation, and do not realize they are able to see and do more when they are not confined to restrictive schedules. Some travelers also believe that renting a car for longer than a day or so is simply outside of their price range. That just isn’t the case anymore. Renting a car no longer has to be a luxury item, when you work with a company like Kemwel, a rental car can fit into your budget perfectly.

More Cheap Fall Getaways: Touring Lisbon on a Budget

Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, is also the largest city in the country. Lisbon’s presence as the greatest westernmost city on the Atlantic Coast of Europe, and its important role in international trade, commerce, and entertainment has helped it grow into the flourishing tourism destination that it is today. Given its place as the seventh most visited city in the southern half of Europe, it should come as no surprise that the Lisbon has plenty to offer travelers of all economic backgrounds.

The rich culture and history of Portugal are only matched by the natural beauty that the area displays. Lisbon, in particular, has a lush history which is shown through the network of museums throughout the city and through the general architecture of the area. Lisbon also sports the warmest winters among the large cities of Europe.

Tips For Touring Lisbon on a Budget
Finding cheap fall getaways is easier than your think, and Lisbon is a great place to start. Here are some tips for making the most out of your trip to Lisbon while staying within your budget:

  • Free tours – There are abundant free tours available in Lisbon. Most of these operate through the efforts of either one or two guides and their only form of payment for this process is through a tips basis. For budget travel, this concept is hard to beat. One tour takes visitors to locations special to literary figures of Lisbon, including Jose Saramago. These are referred to as “Chill Out” tours.
  • Off season deals – Fall and winter are usually referred to as the off-season in Europe. This holds true in Lisbon as well. Try and call in advance and see if there are any deals on either travel or lodgings that take place during the off season. This is one of the best ways to save money.
  • Stay in a hostel – Some travelers don’t believe that staying in a hostel is a viable option, or that hostels are for only youthful travelers. but it can save massive amounts of money on lodgings and serve as an introduction to many interesting fellow travelers! Sharing space in this way can be compared to your first college dorm room experience, just with more people.
  • Visit neighborhoods on foot – Particularly Carmo, where the remains of the old city can be seen. It was here that an earthquake and tsunami destroyed large parts of the city.
  • Sunday morning is free morning – Most of the monuments and museums in the city are free on Sunday mornings, which allow visitors to see some of the most spectacular things the city has to offer at no cost.
  • Speak with the locals – One of the benefits of travel is the ability to speak with people outside of your own culture to both grow and expand as a person. During the off-season you will be privy to more relaxed interactions. Beyond that, the locals will be able to tell you more information about great places to eat, events that may be going on, and some of the more “off the books” local history.

Lisbon is a great travel destination, particularly for those looking for cheap fall getaways.
