Whether flight attendants, payroll technicians or in communications, as Transat employees we all get to travel regularly. In fact, we tend to become travel advisors for our friends and families. Here are a couple of original suggestions and travel tips from two of our “vacation experts”!

Travel Tip #1: Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Netherlands

From Paula Erskine – Flight Attendant

Librairy in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Bibliotheek Amsterdam is not only a modern library with nifty cubicles, it also houses an unexpectedly gourmet, chic and yet reasonably priced cafeteria. It has a top-floor veranda overlooking the fantastic Nemo Science Museum, the canals and the buzz of activity below. Dig into a bowl of hearty, homemade soup and thick slices of whole grain bread as you watch the world go by. Before leaving, be sure to visit the other floors of this library to marvel at the unique music stations and modern style of presenting research materials.

Travel Tip #2: Altos de Chavon, Dominican Republic

From Marc Marette – Travel Agent

Altos de Chavon, Dominican Republic

Altos de Chavon is a tourist attraction situated between La Romana and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Set amid breathtaking scenery, on a cliff above the Chavon River, this reconstruction of a medieval city literally transports you back in time, to the era of the great explorers. It’s in this totally romantic atmosphere – perfect for weddings – that I had the best sangria in the Dominican Republic!

We hope you enjoyed our experts’ travel tips for Amsterdam and the Dominican Republic, and will keep them in mind for your next voyage abroad. From the historic buildings of Europe to the sunny beaches of the Caribbean, the world is full of amazing things to see and discover. Bon voyage!
