4 Reasons why Private charter jets are safer than commercial jets
When considering the benefits of hiring Flugzeugcharter Dienstleistungen, there are several requests to consider: luxury, convenience, privacy. However, there is another crucial advantage that must be added to that list: security. Safety is something we often take off when we fly through our industry's impressive safety record. However, sometimes when we see the news that asks us to re-evaluate commercial flights' safety, we know that millions of people will fly safely on commercial airlines every day. Safety, he said, is more than an accident; in today's environment, we should also consider flying on the ship. According to Forbes Magazine, there were 4.1 billion scheduled airline flights in 2017. There is an astonishing number of people searching and searching regardless of the advanced technology and comprehensive security measures. Despite these measures, it is possible that a well-intentioned person could slip through the cracks - in this indefinite period, the probability is higher than before. However, things are entirely different when you Privatflugzeug mieten. Here are four reasons why private Flugzeug chartern can be considered safer than flying at commercial airports: 1. Every passenger vetted Passengers are getting into the car in the jet after accessing the ramp. However, when you rent a Privatjet chartern, your broker gets a more detailed picture of the person flying. Airline passengers only need to provide some necessary details when booking their charter flight. However, when you rent a private jet for a charter, your broker gets a more detailed picture of the person flying. Most likely, everyone will know each other. It could be family, a group of friends, or a business associate. This means you can see who is flying, why they are flying, and at what level they can pose a threat - which is usually zero. Because brokers talk directly to their clients when booking a flight, waiting for clients and making sure everything is safe and orderly is a simple process. In contrast, commercial airlines know nothing about the reasons passengers fly, their relationships with others on board, or any other useful information that can help reduce any risk. It is sensitive to watch out for other passengers to see any suspicious activity while you are on a commercial plane. But, when you use a private jet charter, this concern disappears. Instead of this, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight.

Going for a Tour? Then This is for you..
House exchange may seem complicated at first and too risky to try, but families who tried this kind of vacation once are not stopping. They are happily exploring different parts of the world year after year. Home exchange gives you the freedom to swap your property with someone in your favorite destination, at zero costs. But the vast majority segment of homeowners still choose to book hotel rooms paying sky high prices, rather than opting for a home exchange. Here are a couple of reasons why the home exchange concept has not grown even faster than it has.  Lack of Knowledge is a Big Problem The biggest reason why the home swapping industry is growing steadily but not exponentially is that many people are simply not aware of the concept.  Ask a bunch of people, and most will have no idea about the house swapping. Yes, there are Hollywood movies like "The Holiday" based on home exchange, but families are unaware of how to use their own home to enjoy their vacation for FREE. Once you tell people about the concept, most immediately understand it and often will try it. No Proper Exchange Sites One reason house swapping is no more popular, regardless of the many perks associated with it is there are not many reliable house exchanging websites. Yes, it is true with proper research you'll end up narrowing down an exchange site you can trust. First, thoroughly, read the website, look into every minute details such as the number of many years they have been in business. Secondly, their subscription fees, do they charge at registration as a member or when the deal goes through.  Ideally, you should choose an exchange site which has a commission system for every deal, because you never know when you land on the right property option that fits your itinerary. Secondly, but most importantly, do quick online research to know how reputed the exchange site is in their operational region. Read what their clients say, both positives and negative feedback. If you have any concerns, for the customer support. People May Not Feel Safe Yes, at first thought, exchanging your home with a stranger doesn't feel right, but remember that the other family is also letting you reside in their place. In other words, both parties may be nervous, but after the first successful exchange become confident, and definitely want to do it many times. Let’s Wind Up Based on the above, we can easily deduce that home exchanging is worth a try. But, being your first time you need to be careful with the exchange site you choose to search the best holiday exchange options. Be clear with the other party, ask as many questions as possible. Eventually, this will ensure a smooth hassle-free home exchange vacation. You can always seek the advice of friends or relatives who have tried house swapping, they’re first-hand experience will definitely help you.
How to make it as an amateur photographer
Receiving compensation as an amateur photographer for a service performed is certainly a great satisfaction as well as an excellent incentive to improve and study new techniques. However, if you are an amateur photographer, it may seem ethically incorrect , and probably a little embarrassing, to get paid to take pictures. The problem is not naturally linked to your skill and competence, but precisely to the role you play, that is that of amateur photographer . Let's explain Those who dedicate themselves to a hobby do it mainly for passion, and therefore hardly think about the possibility of being able to profit from their passion. This at least at the beginning . It can happen that the passion turns into real work, but then things are a little different . For now, let's stay in the field of amateur photography : let's say that you are good enough to always take shots well done, and enough prepared both from a theoretical point of view and as regards the equipment, so much so that some friends and / or relatives ask you. to participate in a birthday party or an anniversary, not only as a guest but also as a photographer. Once such a request would have been accompanied by reassurance that the cost of the rolls and the printing process would be reimbursed. Today, of course, it would not make sense, especially because once your photos are finished you can download all the material on a USB pen drive or upload them online and the friend or relative concerned can print the photos they like best by themselves. Working for a friend In this case you would work above all for friendship for the love of photography and to make yourself a photographic portfolio and, from your point of view, it  can also be seen as an investment, not just a favor. Doing work for free can be a good method (and therefore investment) to create a series of photos that you can show to "potential new customers". What time did you decide to make this hobby a real profession. In any case, once you have had some experience in photos of birthdays or small events, even by participating in them completely free, you may be presented with the opportunity to have to ask for a fee as a photographer. The question of payment Sometimes it happens by pure chance, because a customer asks you a simple and banal question at the same time whose answer, however, the first few times, can be embarrassing. More for you than for the customer to be honest: "How much do I owe you?" These are only three words but you have to be ready to know how to answer in order not to seem unprofessional, but also unprofessional. Defining compensation It is not easy to define a compensation as a photographer but you can still follow these tips on how to determine a price that is at least "fair". If it is true that you do not want to enrich yourself with your hobby, it is also true that you cannot lose money on fuel, on the highway or on parking . First you have to quickly calculate the distance from home to work and do the math of how much it costs you to "move". Starting from this assumption, even assuming you want to do a “free” job : you can easily offer your neighbor a photo shoot at no cost, while someone further away you should at least ask for money as a flat-rate reimbursement of expenses .  Photographing a wedding A little 'different is the situation if they ask you to attend as official photographer at a major event such as a communion or a wedding. In this case, in addition to the basic price to cover expenses, it is good that you also consider the possibility of really feeling up to this situation , especially in the case of marriage. Today weddings include an infinite number of shots, in different locations, in the church or town hall, in the restaurant, etc. As strange as it sounds, you may also elect to do drone photography for golf courses. It is a very long and complex job that does not include a single day of work, that of the wedding, but also a period of preparation , to understand the wishes of the spouses on the type of photos they want and a subsequent sorting, to eliminate all bad shots and basic post-production. In fact, one cannot think of delivering all the photographic material to the newlyweds without first having eliminated photos that… would ruin your reputation as a photographer! ATTENTION: The professionals who work as wedding photographers did not get there by chance, but they have years of experience behind them and above all, since they do this profession, they are also prepared for the unexpected that could happen during the event. So do not take lightly the proposal that someone might make to you. Also consider well the duties and risks you face if you do some stupid thing. In any case, to return to the main question: how much do you have and can you get paid for a photo shoot during the wedding? Also in this case the answer may depend on different parameters, first of all, if you are also a guest or if you are only and exclusively the photographer. Basic decisions to make In the first case , you can decide to offer your skills in the photographic sector as a wedding gift for the newlyweds . If you choose to do this, you should also pay for the printing and photo book costs , to really offer a nice service and gift. In the second case , if your role is exclusively that of a photographer, then a minimum remuneration as a photographer must take into account both travel expenses and the whole day , especially if perhaps, to take photos at the wedding, you had to use one day vacation at work or in any case put aside other commitments . This is where the hourly price comes into play, which is very subjective. For a professional it can be "easy" to determine the hourly price, or at least he can make assessments on the basis of the "fixed" costs he incurs.  But you, as an amateur photographer, have to make an assessment of what you think is a fair price for your time. Personally, I would not "give" my time to strangers for less than $30 an hour . And this only includes my "time", not expenses. I would say that an honest price, especially if it is your first experience as a wedding photographer having albums printed by low-cost commercial firms, can be between $200 and $300 plus any travel expenses reimbursement. As you can understand, it is easy to get compensation as a pro photographer around $500-600 which are the prices that usually “amateurs” make for an occasional job . This, of course, if the wedding takes up a whole day. Conversely, if only the photos are requested in the church or at the Municipality or only at the refreshments, you will automatically have to lower the prices a little. Fiscal aspects to consider When you put the words "compensation" and "amateur photographer" together , it is usually like raising a crawl space: on the one hand, professional photographers  -  those who have to pay our bills and bread with photography  - accuse that this practice is illegal and harms those who work honestly and pay taxes: on the other hand, there are many amateur photographers who still get paid for their services based on an urban legend about the fact that up to $10,000 per year you don't need to have a business license. Well, both of them are wrong . But the solution is much simpler than you might think. Dissolving myths I have heard all sorts of things despite the obvious thing that would be simply asking an accountant for clarification. Anyway: getting paid for a job without having a business license is not illegal . Put your heart in peace professionals in the sector ... if one does not have a license number and is doing a photographic job, this is not why he is a tax evader or a "black" worker; the much-cited threshold of $10,000 exists but it concerns something else , therefore being paid without issuing a declaration and reporting the collection obtained to the revenue agency means doing things illegally and being subject to complaints and penalties. Doing occasional work Basically, without going to the technical (you can easily find all the technical details on the web), if it happens in a completely occasional way that an acquaintance / friend (but it can also be a company) asks you to do a paid job that does not it has nothing to do with your regular business, you can do it. And you can also get paid as long as you issue a receipt for occasional work (a kind of invoice) which you will also have to communicate to the tax office through the tax return the following year .

Ljubljana - The Capital of Slovenia
Ok guys, a lot of you know I am from Slovenia, and since the country is not widely famous, I decided to write a card to kind of present it to you. So, I hope you will like my quick presentation of a capital of Slovenia, and also a place where I spent most of my time, because of studying. Ljubljana has no world-famous attractions, which is just great: there's no need to hop from one place to another, taking photos and crossing the items on your checklist. You have all the time to stroll around and enjoy the city itself. In the summer, its center hosts a number of city sponsored events, from children workshops and public playgrounds on the streets that get closed for traffic for the occasion, to Trnfest's off-beat street performances and musical events of all genres. In autumn it shows its academic face as it fills again by students of the state's largest university to whom the city owes much of its youthful character. Cold December days are warmed by thousand of lights, the new year's decoration conceived by local artists, and by food and drinks sold from street stands on the banks of Ljubljanica river. After surviving the boring gray remaining of winter, the city erupts again with spring flowers planted on its streets and crossroads. Located at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danube region, it was the historical capital ofCarniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of Austria-Hungary, and it has been the cultural, educational, economic, political, and administrative center of independent Slovenia since 1991. Ljubljana ("lyoob-lyAH-nah") is a charming city full of artists, museums, and galleries. With a population of 300,000, it is one of the smallest capital cities in Europe. The main language of the city is unsurprisingly Slovenian. Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian is generally understood by most people and frequently spoken fluently by adults, especially those over the age of 40. Most of citizens speak at least some English, many, especially those under age of 30, speak it fluently. It's also worth trying any major European language you speak as you just might be understood. Triple Bridge (Tromostovje), designed by Jože Plečnik, consists of three separate picturesque bridges located next to one another. The neighboring Prešeren square with the statue of Slovenian greatest poet France Prešeren is the central location of downtown Ljubljana and a common meeting point. Across Ljubljanica to the left is Open Market and the Dragon Bridge. Squeezed between the castle hill and Ljubljanica river is the old town with two squares, Mestni trg (City square) with the Robba fountain and the city hall behind it, and, further on, Gornji trg (Upper square). Well preserved medieval buildings now house local designer shops, and several popular cafes and restaurants. Although they may look creepy, the perfectly safe narrow lanes lead to charming little squares and buildings. Zmajski Most (Dragon Bridge), completed in 1901, designed by Croatian Jurij Zainovich. It is guarded by four detailed dragon statues from the city's coat-of-arms. You have to be careful around the Dragon Bridge area, as it is on a major busy road just outside the pedestrian zone and near misses (and worse) between inattentive tourists and traffic are common. Ljubljana Castle - You can catch the "tourist train" from the Triple Bridge to the castle, or walk up the (quite steep) hill to the castle. The tower has magnificent views all over the city. You can also see the Sava River and Kamnik Alps in the distance. Btw, I live just under the castle, so 10 minutes walk to to top. Metelkova City - A self-declared autonomous culture place to gather for alternative artists, many subcultures and youth. What used to be a military barracks is now full of underground artists, bars and nightclubs. Metelkova can get crowded on Fridays and Saturdays. This is an awesome place to party. Tivoli Park is the main city park. You can sit down on a park bench and enjoy the sun. There is also a childern's playground and a lot of paths to walk. Ljubljana Zoo is considered one of the most beautiful Zoos of Europe. I don't this so, tho. Ljubljana Botanic Garden is the oldest Slovene cultural, scientific and educational institution. It was founded in 1810, the time of the Illyrian Provinces, as a garden of native flora and a section of the Central School (École Centrale). In the garden is also tropical glasshouse. So, this is a quick intrudaction to the Capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. It is a city worth visiting. It is suitable for younger and older generations. It is quite small (tho, the biggest city of Slovenia), so everything is reachable by your feet. We don't get a lot of famous people, like bands and singers here, because we are so small, tho Paris Hilton did came to Slovenia, but it was by mistake haha. I hope you like this card, I would be really happy if you like it, clip it and comment it, because I want people to see and get to know Ljubljana. And if you want it, I can post pictures and write about other beautiful, even more greeny places of Slovenia, I know @TerrecaRiley would love it! And if you guys (@marshalledgar @nicolejb @alywoah @onesmile @2littlelegs @allischaaff @NixonWoman @skee292 @shannonl5 @danidee @LauraFisher @buddyesd @LizArnone ...) every find yourself in Europe, somewhere near me, you are more than welcome to come and visit. We'll do some cocktails!
