Wanted to travel light

Traveling is one of the things that I wanted to do.  I like to travel because I will be able to meet new people, friends, see beautiful scenery, and to unwind.  But the place that I want to go is the province of my parents.  I want to meet my cousins there, it has been three years since the last time I visited the place.  I wish to have a vacation, because the last time I went there is because the brother of my father passed away.  I did not have time to enjoy and relax because it was an abrupt plan, plus we have to go back before new year.  The most exhausted travel I ever had.

I wish was granted because my father thought of going home this May.  He thought of visiting the tomb of her mother and departed love ones.  And he wanted me to come with him.  The timing is perfect because I really want to travel, have a short vacation away from the busy city.  I am so excited for our travel.  As early as today, I am thinking of the things that I will bring.  I want to travel light.  I am making a list of the things and the clothes that I will bring.  I thought of bringing more dress than pants because pants are heavy.  And because I do not have much dress, I will buy few dress to bring.  Hopefully I can find time to shop.

If I could I would

Next to the Disneyland, the place that I wanted to visit if given the chance is Paris. I heard a lot about the place that makes me so eager to visit one day. If I could, I would like to do it now because of the luxury apartments in paris for rent now. Being in the place that I wanted visit and staying in the luxury apartment is a wonderful pampering I must say. I hope that the day would come that I get to visit the country of my dream and stay in a very nice luxury apartment even for a week. It would be a dream comes true to tour around the city of Paris explore the beauty of the country.
How about you? Do you have a place/country that you wanted to visit? Do you like to tour around Paris one day?

Ended the summer with smiles and good memories

Today is the last day of summer.  The country will soon enters the rainy season of June.  Before the month of June sets in, I would like to share it here my summer that was ended with smiles and good memories.  I can tell that I have the best summer ever.  Though my previous summer was a memorable one for me, I just thought that this year was the best of all.  Why?  Because the family did have the summer vacation away from the city where we live.  We went to the province of the parents that celebrated the summer there with a bang.

For the first time, the family did visit the tourist spots that Bohol has.  It is a dream come true because we have dreamed to see the spots at Bohol, Philippines.   We did see the Tarsier ( the smallest primate), the chocolate hills, the Hinagdanan Cave, Phyton, the oldest Church and many more.  Wonderful and memorable, right?  I thank God for the blessings for without His blessings that family vacation will not be realized.  And also, I thank God for the safe trip we had.  We got home safely.  It is worth the vacation even if I got sick.

Hitchhiking

The topic of hitchhiking is a much debated one; some see it as an adventurous,  cheap (especially when you use coupon codes) and enjoyable method in which to travel and experience a country, whilst others think it is dangerous and uncomfortable.
In the early to mid twentieth century, hitchhiking was a very popular activity. Some did it out of necessity, for vehicles were more expensive to buy and run, so less people had the privilege to own their own automobile. This meant that if you did want to get to any other part of the country (or world in some remarkable instances) for many, the only way would be to hitchhike.
Another reason it used to be more prominent was due to the lack of internal flights, in decades gone by, if someone wished to get from New York to California, or get goods from one to another, the main way would be to truck or train it over, rather than fly. This meant a lot more vehicles were going large distances than they are now.
However, vast amounts of automobiles do travel cross country, and yet the decline of hitchhiking has still occurred. One explanation for this is the construction of freeways, not only in America but all round the world, these large roads, which are impractical and dangerous to pick up hitchhikers on have increased in number. This means there is less traffic travelling long distances driving on roads that are accessible to people to pick up lifts from.
A final reason why there are fewer incidents of people hitchhiking is due to awareness, or hysteria, depending on viewpoint of the cases where there is an accident, or casualty. The dominance of the press in the modern era compared to the mid twentieth century means that any attacks, by either the traveller or the driver, are well documented. This means that both people wishing to pick up lifts and those willing to give lifts are less likely to participate in the deal between hitchhiker and driver.
People forget that long distance truck drivers often enjoy a companion alongside them whilst on large journeys. Driving on the modern freeways, where there are almost no discernible landmarks, meaning what appears to be the same road for what could be days, can become extremely dull. This dullness can lead to fatalities as a result of the driver losing their concentration. However this does not get the same media attention as when a truck driver murders a traveller, or vice versa, and so people are not encouraged to use this great form of transport.
Although the golden era of this travelling method is long gone, many people still get around in this way. It may seem privative to many of us in this age but there are simple things you can do to make sure your trip is done in style. Firstly, you need to keep on top of hygiene as this can quickly become a problem on long trips. soap has many great products and is a sure way of getting the best bargains. Secondly, try to travel with a partner; this can help you to avoid any potential dangers or misunderstandings with drivers. Finally, it’s your vacation so enjoy yourself, sometimes you may need to treat yourself and stay in a hotel, if you do this, a brilliant place is a brilliant place is barcelo hotels who have coupon codes available  to make the luxury more affordable!

Off for three days

Today at 12 midnight, I am going to have a very short vacation at the province of Agusan.  The province where  the husband of my sister grew up.  It is my first time to be in there and I am so excited.  Three days of break from doing the same thing everyday is awesome.  When my sister told me to accompany her, I did not think twice I said yes right away.  I seldom go out and go to the places that I wanted to because of the responsibilities that the family is given to me.  I am single but I am like a married woman with lots of kids to take care to.  It is a very difficult situation that I wanted to go out and be free but cannot because my love for my family stops me to do so.  That is why when an opportunity such as this comes, I grab it right away for I need some time to be alone and be of myself.  And also, it is so good to be away from the busy city for a while.  I am done packing my things and I am ready to go.  God bless our trip.  Enjoy your long weekend everyone!
