Thinking about the upcoming Easter holidays?

Counting the days to escape from your work routine?

At Taxi2airport we recommend you to travel. Why? You travel to break and to take distance from your daily routine, to know and experience first hand new cultures, to see “that” temple or monument that you only admired in photos. You also travel to meet people and to get to know yourself.

 Get up every day in a different place, make concessions with the food, the forms of transportation, the schedules, the times and anything else. Traveling allows us to reconcile our culture with that of the other. Travel is to show your face more friendly, is to talk with people with whom one never imagined. Get away from your comfort zone and the sofa at home.

The world is too beautiful to stay at home, don’t you think? There are places that must be seen and enjoyed in person. Although we have seen them hundreds of times in photos, magazines or documentaries.

If you want to discover some places that we have mentioned, just book a flight and a taxi with us!

The Benefits Of Traveling Around The World

Have you ever thought about the benefits of traveling? At Taxi2airport we want to explain you why you should travel at least 1 time per 2 months. Let’s continue reading 😉


THE HAPPINESS OF PREPARING A TRIP AND TRAVELING

 

People are exited when the holidays are approaching, because this can mean travel. The excitement of choosing the destination, buying airline tickets, preparing the suitcase and waiting for the trip in general usually cause a lot of joy.

The experiences during travel make us segregate different hormones of happiness, such as endorphins. When we are away from home and we forget our concerns and labor and family obligations. During a trip we carry out activities that we like and that encourage us to interact with other people.

Travelling

 


REDUCE STRESS

When work is something that really overwhelms us, traveling is not always with the purpose of knowing new places, but simply to get away as much as possible from the negative things of our life.

When we are going on a trip, we disconnect from all these daily anxieties and focus on living in the present, relaxing in the pool, visiting paradisiacal beaches, touching the beauty of the landscape … We focus on the moment and we are not waiting for any meeting or comply with work routines.

 

Travelling

 


 

DISCOVER NEW CULTURES

When you travel, you have a great opportunity to meet people from different countries and different places. In life, one of the most important social skills is to learn how to interact and communicate with other people, even if we are totally different.

Not only you will be traveling to improve communication skills, but in addition to have confidence in yourself, thanks to this communication you can communicate your ideas and opinions clearly in your expressions even if other people are from different cultures. Surely they will understand you perfectly.

Traveling


OPEN YOUR MIND

Traveling gives you the possibility to meet new people, traditions and gastronomy that you did not even know about it. There are hidden parts of our world that are completely different from the “reality” that you are not used to. Therefore, it is important that when we reach our destination we respect and care for everything around us as if it is ours.

travelling


YOU ARE ALWAYS LEARNING

Living unique experiences in environments, other than those that we are used to, provide us with learning and knowledge that improve us as people. It gives us another insight into things, about relationships, about religion and about how different cultures deal with life.

Discover The Differences Between British and American English

English is an universal language but there are some words that change depending if you are in the United Kingdom or the United States. Although the British academically has presumed to be the most correct, but the truth is that there are not better or worse. With their small differences, they are equally valid.


There are quite a few differences between American and British English:

  • Vocabulary level: certain words used in Great Britain are not used in the United States, such as biscuit, football, caravan, holiday, car, etc.
  • Pronunciation: certain letters are not pronounced in the same way, the “r” and “t” for example.
  • Orthographic level: and certain grammatical rules.
  • Conjugation: irregular verbs are very common in Great Britain, while in the United States regular verbs have a greater presence.
  • Expressions: new Anglo-American expressions are born every year.

Most of the differences between British and American English are pronunciation, vocabulary and spelling. However, there are also some discrepancies in grammar.

Here you have some vocabulary examples:

It is important to remember that the differences have nothing to do with the veracity or superiority of one modality of the language in relation to another.

What is certain, is that today in terms of reach, American English is more popular than British English – understand pop culture and the business world at a global level.

On the other hand, South African English, New Zealand and Australia have become real “hits” lately, especially the “Aussies”, which have conquered the big screen with renowned actors like Kate Blanchet, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Mia Wasikowska and Chris Hemsworth.

At Taxi2airport we hope that our blog of differences between British and American English has been useful for you:)

Layover At The Airport? Get A Free City Tour At These 5 Airports

The airplane is the fastest way of transportation from one place to another one. Nevertheless, traveling with planes often takes an entire day: transfer times to and from the airport often take several hours, for the check-in you have to be at least an hour before starting. Especially, if you have an unfavorable connection, it comes to a quite long layover at the airport.

In addition, too much air-conditioner, uncomfortable seats and completely overpriced snacks and drinks are only a few annoyances.

We show you 5 airports which have turned the whole idea and offering small city tours for free!

 

Singapore 

On the one hand, the Singapore’s Changi airport has so many cool features (a butterfly garden, a video gaming room, free massage chairs) that we wouldn’t blame you for not wanting to leave its air-conditioned comfort. On the other hand, Singapore’s airport offers two free city tours for people who have more than six hours to stay at the airport.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can book this tour before immigration, head to either Transfer Lounge F in Terminal 2 or Transfer Lounge A in Terminal 3.

Tokyo
