Thinking Out of the Box When It Comes to Vacationing

Planning a vacation is fun and exciting, but if you really want to spice things up, try thinking outside of the box. Whether travelling alone or with a group, vacations are the perfect opportunity to try new and exciting things. Whether you are looking for a new adventure, a refreshing escape, or the thrill of a life time, you’ll have fun planning your next excursion.

A New Adventure

Sometimes all we need in life is something new to lift our spirits and renew our interest in living. Vacations are the perfect time to learn a new skill. Consider volunteering on a missionary trip where you’ll encounter new locations, people, and jobs to do. Maybe you could learn a craft during Gatlinburg Tennessee’s Arts and Crafts Weekend, or you could sign up for one of Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge’s guided hunting trips in South Carolina.

A Refreshing Holiday

If you are one of those people that are constantly doing for others, a new adventure could be something as simple as staying at a resort and spa. Here you can indulge in massages, get your hair done, or join a relaxing yoga class. Allow someone else to fuss over you for a change. This includes everything from sleeping in to enjoying amazing dishes prepared by top chefs.

Something for the Thrill Seeker

Maybe you’re the type that enjoys getting their heart racing. Consider doing something adventuresome and new. Sky diving is an exhilarating way to see the countryside. Deep see diving goes a totally different direction by submerging you to a whole new world. If this is too extreme, try something milder like visiting a theme park like Cedar Point in Ohio.

Nothing compares to the rush you feel once you try something completely new and different. Remember, not everyone wants to skydive or finds learning new skills entertaining. You’ll get just as big a rush from relaxing and allowing others to pamper you for a change.

LTO Penalties

If you have a car or vehicles, check these penalties that were posted through 911. This should be very helpful so you will be aware of the exact fines and penalties if you have violations. Remember, it is better to be informed than to be fooled in the end. You can’t fine your money in the street; you have to work for it so spend it the right way. Don’t be fooled!

3 Tips for Buying Your First Boat

You have money. You have a dream. You’re ready to buy your own boat and get to sailing on the water, but where do you even begin? Where do you look for these kinds of vessels? How can you be sure that you’re getting a good deal when you finally find one? If you’re in the market for a new boat, here are just a few things to keep in mind as you shop.

1. Know What You Need

There’s a big difference between a commercial fishing boat and a yacht meant for leisurely afternoons on the lake. If you need a boat for a specific purpose, place or activity, do some research about what will best suit your needs. This will help you narrow down categories and boat models before you start shopping, and it can also serve as a “direction” when it comes to choosing boat manufacturers in the first place.

2. Consider Its Specs

There’s more to a boat than length and width. There’s also a thing called weight capacity, and you’ll want to pay attention to this if a lot of people or products will be hauled around the water. There might also be power requirements if your boat is operated with an electric motor. What can you handle? What can you afford?

3. Mind Your Budget

Speaking of price, you’ll definitely want a budget before you go shopping for your new watercraft. There’s no “average” price for boats, so you could wind up spending anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars on your new baby. You’ll probably want some kind of line in the sand where things get too expensive for you. Remember, you might also need to buy things like fuel and deck accessories in addition to the boat itself!

These are just three tips for buying your first boat. As you can see, it’s just as complicated as buying a car or some other form of transportation, so take your time. Do it right. Look for reputable boat dealers Naples FL who can make sure that you’re getting a good deal.

Araw Ng Kagitingan : The Day Of Valor

Yes, Araw ng Kagitingan is also known as the Day of Valor, in the Philippines it occurs on April 9. Aside from it was named as The Day of Valor, it was also known as Bataan Day, or Bataan and Corregidor Day. The Day of Valor is a long weekend for us here in the Philippines; it commemorates the fall of Bataan, the heroism of Filipinos and American soldiers when Japanese occupied Philippines during World War II.

Picture not mine

Major General Edward P. King surrendered more than 76,000 American, Chinese and Filipinos soldiers at dawn on April 09, 1942. Japanese possessed forcefully the belonging of these starving, disease ridden soldiers. The soldiers were forced to march 140 kilometer to Camp O Donell in Tarlac. Many of them died during the march due to starvation, dehydration and disease before they could even finish it. Only some were able to survive, they could not even count the exact soldiers who died in the march because some prisoners managed also to escape from their guards.

Despite the defeat, the soldiers remained strong until  they eventually retook the Bataan Peninsula on February 08, 1945. The Day of Valor was a national observance but eventually they made it national public holiday to honor and pay tribute to those Filipinos who fought for freedom and democracy.
