Whether you’re headed just for a short trip by car, flying to a different state, or traveling oversees, this will help pack all the essentials you might need and not to forget things. The Sphinx is an amazing structure. Have a look at its weathered body. This has caused a lot of controversy about the age of the structure. There is a group of historians lead by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock that believe the Sphinx is more than 10000 years old, while the majority of Egyptologist will tell you that the Sphinx is probably about 5000 years old. Decide for yourself!
While it once served an actual governmental purpose, hosting both the Territorial and State Legislatures of Arizona, the Arizona State Capitol Building now serves the state as a museum. The building opened in 1901, after breaking ground in 1898, and hosted the State Legislature until 1960 when the new house and senate buildings were built and moved into. The original capitol building continued to host the office of the governor until 1974 and then the building reopened in 1981 as a museum dedicated to the history of Arizona. One of the most interesting aspects about the building is that it is beautifully constructed out of materials that are found within the state of Arizona. A visit to the Arizona State Capitol Building is a great opportunity to view some exquisite early 1900s architecture and also learn a great deal about the history of the state as well.
If you require medication for any back condition and for pain make sure you carry enough for the duration of your travels and take some extra in case of delays. Ensure you carry your medications in your hand luggage and in their original labelled containers. Check with airline before booking your flights for the latest regulations on this. Do take all your back care medications and anything else that helps your back pain and sciatic nerve symptoms, like heat pads, with you in hand luggage.
This has long been on my ultimate hotel wishlist – sometimes I look at the pictures, just to get a little misty-eyed with longing. From the outside, it looks like it’s just a gorgeous country home, but the real wonder comes when you meet the locals – a group of Rothschild giraffes who roam the grounds. In the morning, they’ll poke their heads through the window to say hello, or to try and nab a bite of your breakfast. Giraffe Manor is part of The Safari Collection, who has 4 beautiful lodges all around Kenya. A visit to the Giraffe Centre next door is a must – hand in hand, both locations have brought this beautiful animal back from the brink of extinction.
Start bringing your lunch every day. I hate making a lunch, but I also hate being broke, so instead of going out to eat every single day, I either pull together a lunch before I head to bed, or I make twice as much dinner as we can eat and have the leftovers for lunch the next day. I’m lucky that I don’t work far from my house, or all week, so I can run home for lunch, make something fast to eat and then head back. When I work from home, I also scavenge for food at home, even if it sounds blah. Power through and think of your awesome trip. But don’t forget to splurge every once in a while for fun.
Hey, Ramkitten, I’d forgotten you were the one going to Nepal. I’d read about your project for the Himalaya Rescue Dog Squad a few weeks ago. It’s about 10:30 AM tomorrow as I write this.. in Kathmandu (according to the World Clock time change converter). Thanks for the update on your trip preparations. Will look forward to reading more as the time draws nearer for your departure.
