Summer’s a wonderful time when people escape from the every day world and take a trip to new destinations, fresh scenes and experiences. These days, travelers find themselves loaded down with several different electronic gadgets to help them stay informed, entertained and in touch while on the road. Each gizmo has its own carrying case, attachments and wires which makes packing a nightmare. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was one small gadget a traveler could use for all their entertainment, tasks, and communication needs? Look no further—such a gizmo does exist. The device is called the iPod iTouch, by Apple. I had decided to use spray primer where possible (everywhere but the vinyl wallboard which I felt was too close to too many of the other non-paint surfaces such as the ceiling and windows. For masking tape I like the green Frog Tape. More expensive but worth it in my experience. I also used plastic and cloth drop cloths over the rug and seating and paper to cover windows and other elements. This took about another 2 hours.

I may look like I’m posing, but I’m really trying to get into the fetal position and not faint. The rooms were surprisingly well designed, though relatively small, which is to be expected. With space at a premium, every little bit is utilised. Instead of a wardrobe, hangers are placed by the big mirror, with small shelving underneath. There’s a mirror over the headboard which gives the illusion of space, and the window is large enough to fill the room with light. I liked the red, black and white colour scheme, too.
Always work with the travel agent or travel website that specializes in your travel destination or region. For example, if you need to fly from the US to Europe, search for ‘flights to Europe’ or so. Usually online search will give you best results. Check several websites or call several travel agents and compare the deals.
I did check the Internet and verified that, as expected, ATM machines were relatively plentiful in Moscow where I was scheduled to land and assumed we would visit. My search also revealed that there were two ATM machines in Ryazan where Bella lived and where I expected to spend most of my … Read more
Let me introduce the three stars of this story. From left to right: Louie (The Toothpick) Cujo, Sassy(The Diva) Sassafras and Crazy Boy Champ (The Chewin’ Chihuahua). Louie and Champ are three years old and experiencing their first road trip ever. Sassy is 13 years old and a world traveler who belongs to my travel buddy, Martha. This would be the first time traveling with all the dogs and we hoped Sassy would teach them well. Perhaps one of the most memorable parts of our almost four months spent backpacking in Southeast Asia was experiencing the magic that is the sometimes overlooked island of Lombok, Indonesia. While Bali and the Gili Islands (which are technically part of Lombok, but are typically discussed independently) are often the mainstays for backpackers and vacation seekers alike, Lombok is a special slice of heaven whose less combed-over atmosphere lends a truly relaxing experience for all those willing to open its arms to it.

Sure, it is safer and cheaper to stay home…probably. But God made the whole world and you’ve only seen a little bit of it. I’ll bet there are even places in your own local area that you’ve wondered about or have meant to see but haven’t quite gotten to yet. You are not a cog in a wheel – you have a soul, and dreams, and curiosity. Let these quotes inspire you to take a little time and get out there! Egypt, as a Middle Eastern country, has gone through a lot of public unrest in the past couple of years (since late 2010), due to the popular uprising against the government of Hosni Mubarak. The tourist industry has suffered a lot due to these uncertainties. There is currently a couple of bad reports coming out of Egypt, relating to tourists being impacted. The best rule would be, to do various searches on the Internet relating to violence and uprisings in Egypt. You can also go to the British or American Governmental websites where the necessary travel alerts are posted. Your tour company will also inform you, if extra care should be taken. The most important thing to remember is … Read more
