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.

Big Pool At D Leonor

So we took their mini cab for us to get to the big pool. I really thought that Faith could not enjoy it there but thank GOD that the pool is not too deep and beside the big pool, there was actually a kiddie pool too. On the 2nd thought the big pool also have a shallow part.  What we enjoyed there  is the slide, it is long and its round but not that long as Blue Jazz had.

I also like the bucket on the top that when it is full, it will pour so hard on the slide going to the pool. Faith would always exclaimed. “Extreme!”

We definitely got wet but we had so much fun!

We did not spend out there for long, it was almost 5 in the afternoon at that time and we don’t have planned to stay out late. Faith was disappointed since she really like to stay for hours there, but I promised her she can get some carousel rides she agreed with me, only to find out that the rides there were busted.

Till next post.

Camp Holiday Or Paradise?

Since March I’d been planning a beach getaway with my family, I was thinking Camp Holiday but recently I am contemplating with that and Paradise Beach Resort.

Camp Holiday offers almost everything, they have beach, of course obviously, we’re talking about sea water, the thing is that it is beside a port and everyone going to the port or in the barge itself, everybody can see us swimming. I mean duh? It’s a beach resort of course you can see everyone swims. On the other hand they also have swimming pool if you like to soak in chlorine water. I am sure, my kids especially Faith would love and will enjoy the place.

Why confused all a sudden of what beach I wanted to go with my family?

Convenience for all of us and money matter of which place is the most affordable. And besides I miss Paradise, it has been a while since I haven’t been in the resort. The last time I went there is with a friend and her family, and it was like how many years ago already.

On the other hand, I supposed to call the resorts today but geez I was not feeling well this afternoon. I was in the mall ready to grocery shop but after I took my lunch my stomach aches so much that I could not even walk, when I went home I seek for my bedroom right away and lay down for how many hours. My youngest daughter put some menthol ointment on my tummy to relieve the pain. I woke up late and the offices are all close. I hope I can make a call tomorrow so to finalize this family getaway.

An all-inclusive resort vacation to spots as exotic as Mexico and the Caribbean are only a few mouse clicks away. Below are a few of the destinations you can make happen this year.

Jamaica

The entire family can enjoy the pristine beaches, sparkling blue waters or check out the gorgeous waterfall at what is locally known as the “blue hole.” Take a walk through a natural rainforest or seek out the legendary Luminous Lagoon. There is so much to explore and experience in this land of enchantment from brilliant sunrise to tranquil sunsets. An all inclusive family vacation to Jamaica is more affordable than you think.

Mexico

Destinations like Cozumel will allow your family to get up close and personal with stingrays by taking a guided tour of Stingray Beach. You can even snorkel and frolic in the warm waters, or sunbathe on the white sand beaches.

The kids will have plenty to occupy their time while the parents take a moment or two to reconnect on a romantic level. You will fall in love all over again.

Dominican Republic

This gem of a country set off in the Caribbean is a land of stark contrasts and plenty to do from sun-up to sun-down. The white sand beaches give way to towering rock cliffs, jungles, rainforests and lagoons. There are a lot of trails to hike and bike, which allows you to explore the natural beauty that abounds. The multinational cuisine, endless activities and historic architecture make it a spot that the entire family will enjoy.
