Travel To InterContinental Planet Trekkers Hotels & Resorts North & South America

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has launched a new signature InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu across its InterContinental Hotels & Resorts properties. The brand’s North and South American hotels are dishing up exciting and nutritionally balanced meals that promise to take young explorers through an exciting journey of food discovery.

Designed exclusively for young InterContinental hotel guests by award winning chef Theo Randall, and child food expert and best-selling international author, Annabel Karmel MBE, the new menu was developed from start to finish with nutrition and a theme of food exploration at its core. It features delicious dishes with a myriad of flavors, textures, smells and tastes that will take children on an educational and culinary voyage around the Americas while ensuring an enjoyable and nutritionally balanced meal.

Theo is renowned for creating simple, authentic dishes using the best and freshest ingredients. Annabel has written over 37 books on children’s nutrition and cooking for children, and is internationally recognized as a leading authority on helping children to eat properly. Together they conducted a taste and learn tasting session with young guests to explore a variety of ingredients that appeal to young palates in the Americas.

Jean-Pierre Etcheberrigaray, Vice President of F&B, InterContinental Hotels Group Americas said: “Dining while on vacation is as much a part of the overall adventure as sightseeing. For this menu, we’ve experimented with a variety of flavors, ingredients and combinations to develop a range of dishes that would be familiar to a child’s palate yet create excitement around their dining experience at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts around the Americas. The dishes we’ve created for this menu will leave as much of an impression on the children as the destinations they are visiting.”

With 180 hotels in more than 60 countries, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is dedicated to providing diverse, enriching experiences to help worldly travellers feel they are part of a global club. The brand’s new Planet Trekkers Children’s menu will enable guests’ children to join this club through allowing them to explore child-friendly culinary fare from around the world.

Simon Scoot, Vice President Global Brands, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts said: “As part of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts’ promise of delivering exceptional experiences for our guests, we are the first hotel company in the world to develop a signature children’s menu in collaboration with two culinary experts.With more than half a million children visiting our InterContinental Hotels & Resorts each year, we want to ensure that we are giving them the opportunity to enjoy ‘Food Exploration,’ which was our guiding principle when creating the new menu.”

The InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu is currently available at more than 25 properties across the Americas, and by Q1 2015, most InterContinental hotels in North America and South America will have the menu.

How to Pick Out A Car with Great Safety Features #MasteringAuto #AD #Giveaway

This is a partnered post our opinions are our own. 

Auto safety has evolved significantly beginning with basic seatbelts and interior lighting to high-tech safety features that can help drivers park their vehicles and avoid accidents. According to safercar.gov, thanks to continuing innovation, today’s vehicles are safer and have contributed to year-over-year decreases in crash-related fatalities and injuries.  

clip_image002

I have a smart car, at least I call it a smart car. The car has lane control and keeps me within two lanes. It complains at me if I swerve too much and if I change lanes without turning on the signal. My car has the ability to brake and anticipate accidents. When I go in reverse I have a backup camera and it yells at me if there is something I’m about to hit. I have automatic lights that change depending on night and day and weather. I also have wipers that auto adjust to the level of rain. So that’s my smart car, and that’s in addition to all the hidden safety features that I don’t think about every day. The car has traction control and lots of airbags. Most importantly – it takes care of my family!

Recently, MetLife Auto & Home® launched the fifth video in its Mastering DisasterSM video series called: “Auto Safety Features” to help consumers understand what technology features to look for when buying cars. For example, very important features in a car are:  back-up cameras, lane-departure warning systems, and electronic stability control (ESC). Whether buying a new or used vehicle, here are a few safety features you should consider and why they’re important

5 Most Kids-Friendly Countries to Emigrate to: This May Surprise You!

The top five most kids-friendly countries to emigrate to are going to surprise you. You probably have a few thoughts rolling around about what you might find on this list, but the very first one will be something you probably never considered. Before getting into the top five countries on the list it is important to understand the survey conducted was based on real expats living with children. They had criteria for their answers. The top five countries landed at the top because they fit the important criteria.Two kids at city

  • Safety
  • Quality of childcare
  • Outdoor versus indoor time
  • Sports
  • TV- watching less of it
  • Ability to settle in
  • Ability to enjoy new things and not miss friends/home
  • Costs of raising children there
  • Fewer video games
  • Less junk food
  • More social interaction
  • Language learning

There were the criteria used to decide on the top five places. Obviously parents want their children to be safe and have quality childcare options available. It is a plus to see their children get outside, enjoying real life rather than staying indoors with video games, TV, and being unsocial.

The countries on the list have been able to offer more social interaction with more emphasis on education and healthy living versus sedentary indoor lives or unsafe conditions.

The list:

  • Hong Kong
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • United Arab Emirates

Right now you are probably quite surprised at least with the top place to live with children and number five. Hong Kong while a part of China is still separate. It is freer than areas like Beijing and with plenty of British influence still remaining it is a country with a mixture of cultures. It has been ranked as one of the safest cities.

Australia is less surprising. Australia is still largely unpopulated in large areas. While the cities can have crime, there are also plenty of other locations that provide a safe and comfortable home. It is also not perception or myth to say that Australia as a whole is respectful, where communities come together, and outdoor activities are definitely available.

Canada is another country, which is considered safe, community oriented, and often considered to have the nicest people. No place is completely without crime, but in general Canada tends to have a decent health care system, education system, and offer safety particularly outside of the major cities.

The Netherlands is another community country with nice people who know the value of family and outdoor recreation. Many who have lived in the Netherlands as expats have found it to be extremely comfortable and safe. They have felt more a part of the community than separate no matter where they move from.

The United Arab Emirates is certainly a surprising choice. Knowing there is a hot bed of angst all around the UAE might make someone overlook it as a potential option. Yet, the UAE is family oriented, affluent, and crime is still controlled more so than other countries. Additionally, the UAE has a lot of global business helping to make it a little easier for everyone to fit in.

These are just five of the top countries many are choosing to emigrate and raise their children in.

Bucket List Item #23 Interview Jennifer Garner #DisneyInHomeEvent #VeryBadDayEvent

From the time I started doing interviews and blogging there was one person that popped onto my bucket list of things to do before I die.

They compete for the heart of Maria (Zoe). In order to win Maria’s heart and save her life, Manolo must face his greatest fears and follow his heart to rewrite his destiny. Based on the cultural celebration of “Dia de los Muertos” (a day of remembering the memories of lost loved ones)Starring the voices of Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Directed by Jorge Gutierrez (El Tigre, Mad TV) and produced by Guillermo Del Toro (Puss in Boots, Kung Fu Panda, Pan’s Labyrith)
