Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-21 -The Herald Tra vel A happy traveller makes preparations By MARIE SORGARD Special to The Herald In today's fast-moving world, the globe is being encompassed at a faster rate than ever. Consequently it is quite possible that you may have breakfast at home and dinner in London a few hours later. There are several things you should keep in mind when travelling. When I use the term 'travelling' I am not referring to the overnight business trip, but to a trip, either for business or pleasure, or a combination of both, during which you will be away from home for a period of three or four weeks or longer. If planning to visit a country for the first time do some research on the history of the country, the highlights, and points of interest. It will make your trip much more rewarding. If you are going to visit a country that is off the beaten path you may encounter language difficulties. In order to alleviate this problem acquire a basic vocabulary of at least two hundred words relevant to the requirements you, as a tourist, may have. If you are going to be travelling through Europe on one of the many tours available today it is not too likely that you will encounter very many language difficulties. The couriers who accompany the tours are often mustilingual. Another thought to keep in mind is the phrase book or dictionary which can be purchased at most book stores for a very nominal sum. The Berlitz series is available in several languages and contains commonly used phrases which would be of use when visiting a restaurant, inquiring about room reservations, etc. It also contains a word glossary. It is a purse size book and costs under two dollars. Well ahead of departure time start making a list of the things that you will need. When it comes time to pack your suitcase consult your list and check it carefully. Cross out items which would be nice to take along, but are not essential. Remember to include a notebook. You may want to write an account of your travels when you return home. Take along only as much luggage as you yourself can handle. That includes a suitcase and an overnight or tote bag. In some countries in other parts of the world valet or porter service is not available. Thus you may have to carry your bags from the bus to your room, and back to the bus again the next morning. There are times when the bus may have to park half a block or more from the hotel. It can be very inconvenient if you have to pick your way through a crowded street in a strange city, weighted down with luggage. Ladies should take with them a purse that has handles rather than an envelope or clutch bag type, It should also have zippered sections, one of which can be reserved for a passport, one for identification papers, and another for travellers' cheques. Take comfortable low heel shoes for everyday wear. You may walk several miles through museums, cathedrals, winding streets, and other places of historical interest before you complete your trip. The time of year and destination will determine the type of clothes you take with you. In any case take perma press clothing that requires a minimum of care. If you are going to a hot and humid climate do not take under garments or outer wear made of nylon. It is much too warm. Cotton or a cotton blend is much cooler to wear. For evening wear a man should take a i suit and tie. A lady should take a basic dress which can assume a bit of glamor by the addition of a piece of jewellery such as a pin or necklace, complimented by matching earrings. An evening gown is nice to have with you, but it takes up far too much space for the number of times it will be worn. When you go shopping if you see I something that you really want and the price is right buy it! The chances are that if you don't take it then you may not i; see the same item again. If you do the price will probably be higher. Last but not least, either take or arrange to have accessable fifty per cent more money than you need. There may be side trips, the price of which are not included in i the tour. Meals may have gone up in price, j: In case of illness extra money will be needed to cover medical service and prescriptions. A bank credit card with your picture on it will solve the problem if j the need for extra money arises, as well as ;i serving as identification. You can also 5 make your money go further by shopping for money. The exchange rate charged by I; the money changers at the borders is usually higher than in the banks in the j cities. The rate also varies from bank to J bank. Thus, if time permits, it is f preferable to check on the exchange rate of at least two banks before converting :j your money to the currency of the country :j you are visiting.

However, a good cross- section of the most significant of these attractions, plus many of the country's natural lures, can be seen on the 12- day. 800-mile grand tour of the country which CEDOK, the Czechoslovak Travel Bureau, operates out of Prague. Motor coaches leave the capital every Sunday morning at 9 between June 15 and Sept. 15, plus every Tuesday morning at 9 during July and August. The tour takes in sights all the way from Cheb close by the West German border to Tatranska Lomnica in the High Tatra Mountains of Slovakia. Here is a rundown on places the tour takes in: Lidice, where all the men were shot and all of the buildings burned to the ground by 'he Nazis. Karlovy Vary the most famous of Czechoslovak spas, for sightseeing, dinner and overnighting. West Bohemian spa region. On the third day after breakfast, the tour heads for Plzen home of Skoda (heavy machinery now) and the world-famous Pilsener-Urquell brewery. Dinner and overnighting are at Cesky Krumlov where the best assortment of medieval buildings in Czechoslovakia are to be seen. Cesky KnimJov castle and hen takes in Ceske Budejovice, capital of SouUi Bohemia. TeJc, the most famous of all Czechoslovakia's preserved towns. Old coaching inns still in business However efficient and well- organized modern highway service areas, motels and gas stations may be, they can never have the character and leisurely appeal of the old coaching inns. In the days when Charles Dickens complained that it was difficult to write while being 'whirled along in a post- chaise at 13 miles an these establishments did all that is done by present-day highway services. They supplied food and beverage, accommodation, a place where weary travellers could relax, and fresh power for the journey in the shape of new teams of horses. In addition they acted as passengers' waiting rooms. In Britain, hundreds of Bulgaria offers tops in beaches VARNA Bulgaria's beachers are far and away the best around the whole of the Black Sea coast and are the main reason for this little country's escalating tourist business. The fine sand of the beaches, the low salinity of the sea, the absence of dangerous forms of sea life, and the pleasantly high temperature of the water in summer and early autumn lure tourists from as far away as Canada and the U.S. and in large numbers from England, France, Scandinavia, West and East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia and .the U.S.S.R. Any Western holidayer who has become bored with Miami, Brighton or Cannes, but who still values his comforts, might find on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast the spot to suit him. There can be no doubt that this Balkan Riviera has what it takes to satisfy beach- hungry tourists sand, sea and sun. these old inns are still in business. They have changed, of course, but many are still' important centres of business and recreation, including some whose buildings date from still earlier days, when even roads fit for coaches did not yet exist. The Red Lion at Colchester, 52 miles north-east of London, is an outstanding example. It occupies the site of an important Roman building and a later medieval inn. Much of the present building was erected in 1470, some 20 years before Columbus set sail for America. Enlarged soon after, the Lion was described as 'an Auncient (ancient Inne' in 1604. But it is still flourishing today. So are many others. But one important point: not all old inns are coaching inns. Not even all inns with remains of extensive old stables were necessarily coaching centres. In many cases the stables were built to accommodate farmers' mounts on market days. The coaching inns fulfilled two main functions. They were the stage-coaches' stoppping-places (or where passengers alighted or boarded vehicles and horses were changed. In addition they served as supply points for private travellers who needed fresh horses to continue their journey, or a meal, or a bed for the night. In their heyday two or three inns usually shared their town's coach routes and extended their premises and earnings considerably. Of those that still exist, the magnificent stone-built Angel and Royal at Grantham, on the old North Road from London to Edinburgh, is one of the loveliest. It was a guesthouse of the Knights Templar when King John stayed there in 1213. Today it is a beautifully modernized hotel. The Lion at Shrewsbury was a giant among coaching inns. One of its landlords even persuaded the authorities to change the route of the London-Holyhead road the main road to Dublin and Ireland to pass through Shrewsbury. Dickens and De Quincey were among its famous visitors. Sir Walter Scott and William Wordsworth stayed at Llangollen's Royal, 30 miles on from Shrewsbury. The Irish patriot Daniel O'Connell wrote appreciatively in its visitors' book in 1820, and Queen Victoria came there as a girl, with her mother in 1832. Of London's great coaching inns only the ancient George in Borough High Street, Southwark, still retains anything like its former appearance. Its great galleried courtyard is typical of its coaching days and of many London inns as they were 150 years ago. Many fine timbered inns still standing in East Anglia were famous coaching houses in their day. Notable among them are the Swan at Lavenham, and the Bull at Long Melford.
