中秋节快乐,同学们!

09 九月 2016


 

每年农历八月十五日,是传统的中秋佳节。这时是一年秋季的中期,所以被称为中秋。在中国的农历里,一年分为四季,每季又分为孟、仲、季三个部分,因而中秋也称仲秋。八月十五的月亮比其他几个月的满月更圆,更明亮,所以又叫做“月夕”,“八月节”。此夜,人们仰望天空如玉如盘的朗朗明月,自然会期盼家人团聚。远在他乡的游子,也借此寄托自己对故乡和亲人的思念之情。所以,中秋又称“团圆节”

中秋节自古便有祭月、赏月、拜月、吃月饼、赏桂花、饮桂花酒、等习俗,流传至今,经久不息。中秋节以月之圆兆人之团圆,为寄托思念故乡,思念亲人之情。

今天,月下游玩的习俗,已远没有旧时盛行。但设宴赏月仍很盛行,人们把酒问月,庆贺美好的生活,或祝远方的亲人健康快乐,和家人“千里共婵娟”。 中秋节的习俗很多,形式也各不相同,但都寄托着人们对生活无限的热爱和对美好生活的向往。

The Best Holiday Deals Around (So Far)

29 一月 2014

That's it. We've had enough of the grim weather: Flooding, high winds, torrential rain - it's just too much. So to cheer ourselves up and hopefully you too, we've compiled a list of the best holiday deals around if you're thinking about getting away soon. And if you need a hand with excess baggage, don't forget, Seven Seas Worldwide are experts in international shipping.

First off, have you ever thought about Dubrovnik? Okay, you won't be escaping to a tropical climate but as Dubrovnik is located on the Adriatic coast, it enjoys milder winters and February is noticeably warmer than the UK. Plus, you can get some great deals right now flying out from London, with prices starting at £65.

Freedom Asia are offering a 9 night trip to Bangkok and Koh Samui for only £349. After sampling the unique Bangkok night life for 2 nights, you will then be transported to the idyllic island of Koh Samui, Thailand's second-largest island after Phuket, to spend the rest of your vacation. Seven Seas Worldwide offers a comprehensive door-to-door service to Thailand, so if you end up facing a trip back home with one or two gifts from the Bangkok street markets that you can't pack in your luggage, talk to us about shipping your belongings back home.

Fancy a break to Fuerteventura for only £299? Tour Center can fly you to the Globales Costa Tropical Apartments for 8 days of sun, sea and savings. Or if you're looking for an all inclusive break with 5 star treatment, take a look at the offer from Broadway Travel which will send you and your family to the Diamond Hill Hotel in Alanya, Turkey. For 7 nights at £299, you will be enjoying ultra all inclusive treatment at the Diamond Hill, a waterfront high-rise establishment offering breathtaking views and sumptuous architecture (check out their glass elevator).

And finally, for just £399, you and your partner could be flying off to the five star Radisson Blu Resort in Sharm el Sheikh, a stunning location situated on the shore of the Red Sea courtesy of a1 Travel. You've not got long - the deal lasts until the end of the month.

If you're planning on a trip abroad for half-term or beyond, remember to talk to Seven Seas Worldwide about shipping your belongings door-to-door. With our unbeatable rates and an efficient service, the convenience of flying light and leaving your stuff with us is the perfect option for the seasoned holidaymaker.

Taking the Edge Off at the Airport

14 十一月 2013

Everyone loves to travel. Well, except hermits. But I'm sure even hermits secretly yearn for a stylish ski excursion to Graubunden or a three star jolly to Cancun. However, there's one thing that unites us travellers; airport fatigue. Whenever we plan a break, we always take into account the necessary queuing, stressing and general confusion associated with passing through an airport to board a plane.

Luckily, there are companies out there who try to reduce the stress as much as possible. For instance, the nightmare of taking your own vehicle to the airport has been eroded significantly in recent years thanks to airport parking companies. How I wish I'd had that idea - parking just outside the chaos and then transported to the airport in a bus. Why, it seems so simple - kind of like wheels on a suitcase; we had wheels and suitcases for centuries before someone hit upon the obvious notion that the two could be brought together in a glorious union. Anyway, I digress.

APH or Airport Parking and Hotels is leading the way when it comes to stress-free transition from your car to the airport. They own sizeable airport parking locations at Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham airports and provide airport parking at other airport destinations in the UK as well as Southampton and Dover ports. They also cater for passengers staying in airport hotels. This is probably why they've won the British Travel Award for Best Airport Parking, five years in a row.

They've got it sewn up, basically. But this is because they're so reliable. Knowing APH is looking after your car as you explore another culture/sit by the pool reading the new Stephen King, is a comforting thought and the team at APH come highly recommended from this blogger.

To be precise, wheels have only been on suitcases for the past 26 years. Before then, human beings were humping their enormous cases around the airport and thinking "Well, I'll guess there will never be an obvious solution staring me in the face to end this torment." Silly human beings. However, since then, we've made up for lost time with all manner of dynamic wheeled suitcase designs for the seasoned traveller.

One of the most successful in this business is Direct Luggage, who supply the highest quality and most affordable travel luggage around. However, they don't stop as just suitcases, you know. In fact, if you need luggage for business (laptop bags, briefcases), flight accessories (travel adaptors, wash bags), backpacks, wallets and purses, Direct Luggage are the folks to do business with.

If you're slightly embarrassed by the clunky and battered piece of luggage that bumbles it's way round the airport carousel before reaching your outstretched arm, take a peek at the Direct Luggage website for recognisable brands and designer names, from Samsonite and Carlton to Lulu Guinness and Visconti. There are some excellent deals to be had here, so have a peruse today. Oh, and if you end up with too much stuff to carry then don't forget we can ship it for you with our outstanding excess baggage service. Just saying.

Yes, the trip through the airport will always be an arduous one but if you've had a smooth journey to the airport and are buoyed by the brand spanking new suitcase you're holding, you will find the edge taken off somewhat. In the past, something that only duty free Toblerone could do.

Catch a Flight to Düsseldorf

16 九月 2013

Last week, British Airways announced that it will be launching a three-times-daily service to Düsseldorf from London City Airport. The addition of flights to Dusseldorf is good news for business professionals moving to and from two of the busiest financial cities in the world.

But if you're one of the potential customers taking advantage of these new flights to Düsseldorf, you should also be aware of BA's extra baggage allowances. If you find yourself with too many pieces of extra luggage, British Airways will hit you with a baggage fee which fluctuates depending on your situation (i.e. it will cost less if you pay in advance online). Well, we say they'll 'hit' you with a fee. We don't really mean 'hit', for they do prepare you for these fees on their website. But that doesn't make it any less annoying.

So how can you avoid these unnecessary costs? We're glad you asked. The team at Seven Seas Worldwide are experts in shipping excess baggage and personal belongings all over the world. Imagine leaving your luggage with us to send ahead of you while you breeze through the airport on your flight to Düsseldorf with just your laptop bag. Yes, we know. It sounds sweet.

It works like this: We'll deliver as many empty boxes as you need. Once you're done packing the boxes with your items, we'll turn up to collect them again for forwarding to your chosen destination, door-to-door. We'll do the return leg too. It's as simple as that.
