Joy Ride with Friends

March 24, 2014 on 1:01 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

My friends and I decided to experience a joy ride last spring break. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences we had. We stayed in serviced apartments Rozelle because it was a safe place to be at. The long drive was really great. It felt like we were characters in a movie enjoying a carefree and relaxing trip towards a new adventure. We plan to do the same thing this coming summer and we are bringing more friends along. I would like to enjoy more trips like this in the future because I feel that after graduation, we would all be busy with new things in our lives like our work or even our own families. I might as well enjoy being young as long as I can.

March 20, 2014 on 4:42 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

To travelers looking to do a bit of good Malaysia trekking cameron highlands is a great place to head up to for a few days. Despite the fact that this area is only a few hours’ ride from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, the hiking here is surprisingly nice and the atmosphere amazingly peaceful. You can literally leave your guest house each morning with the decision of whether to take a quiet stroll through tea plantations or a hard croe hike into the tropical jungle. No matter where you go for the day, you can find beauty and quiet unrivaled anywhere else in the country.

My matadoru review was difficult to write!

March 18, 2014 on 5:12 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Writing a well crafted MatadorU review is actually a lot harder than I had initially expected it to be. I had sort of jsut assumed that because I had spent so long as a student of the course it would be no difficult matter whip together a small rundown of what they offer and post that together with the affiliate link. The thing is, though, the idea of what they offer is so personal that it was hard to describe exactly what others might find most useful! That, coupled with the quesiton of how much peronal information to reveal about my own situation, made it take longer than I’d expected.

The vrang zoroastrian fire temple is a slice of religious history.

March 15, 2014 on 1:00 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

The vrang zoroastrian fire temple is without doubt one of the most interesting tourist and historical sites left in the entire stretch of mountain valley known today as the Wakhan Corridor. This long corridor, though split between Afghanistan and Tajikistan, takes a hard southern turn beyond the village of Langar and extends deep into inhospotable mountains that make life hard for the residents there. No wonder, then, that in ancient times the residents of this region would have wanted to appease their god with fire and sacrifice in any way the thought they could make their lifestyle a little friendlier! Make sure to check it out. 

Choosing the Propulsion of the Boat That You Buy

March 8, 2014 on 11:15 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Before looking for boats for sale, pick a way of propulsion. For many, yachting can best be appreciated when the motor is switched off and there’s just the sound of the wind along with the waves. Remaining adrift at the center of a lake can provide a feeling of entire peace, which folks infrequently experience in the towns. For sporty folks, powerboats can be a better choice. These are widely used for water skiing as well as other water-sports.

Budget is a critical facet when intending to get a boat. In case you create an unhealthy selection, you could find your boat sucking up every cent you’ve got for its maintenance. Some boaters invest thousands of bucks per annum simply to buy taxation, insurance, and ease fees. Be aware of the reality that care can be pricey. Select your boat shrewdly–make sure it is in your budget and, just as significantly, has a ship CE indicating.

Mt Everest Base Camp trek recs.

February 28, 2014 on 12:00 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Being at mt everest base camp high in the mountains of the Himilayas in the Nepalese Sagarmatha National Park remains one of the most epic holiday experiences one can ever hope for in the realm of standard adventure travel type opportunities. The trail to Mt Everest Base Camp is long and steep and full of difficulty, but with both a strong physical commitment and the mental fortitude to push on and on for several weeks of hiking it doesn’t take much to make it all the way to the end and back in one piece. One of the most importnat considerations before taking off for this kind of trip is to research how to train for everest base camp so that you will be aware of the kind of challanges you should expect to face on the way and how to best prepare yourself to face them with a strong training regimen. This is a far different beast from some one day trip to Ala Archa just outside of the city, for example. Instead you can expect to walk for many hours day after day after day, and while the actual distances are not that great the amount of elevation involved in the trek means that it will likely be just as difficult on your body as a full day of hiking at your normal home elevations. As such, most people try to bring a kindle or ebook (well, or a small print book that doesn’t weigh too much) to read in the afternoons, as their body generally needs the rest but their minds start to wander after hours of sitting around in a tea house common room. With only these few preps in mind, though, you should be all set to take the Mt Everest Base Camp trek by storm!

Chiang rai is a great tourist town for me.

February 27, 2014 on 2:05 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Something about the chaing rai temple draws me back to the complex time after time. Anytime I find myself in northern thailand, I end up detouring well out of my way just to make a quick stop at the beautiful temple. On the face of it the Chiang Rai White Temple is not incredibly different from the rest of th emajor Buddhist sites in Thailand, but the atmosphere of the place (and perhaps the fact that this isn’t quite so squarely on the tourist trail as the big Bangkok temple) makes me really truly enjoy the place more than most of the temples in the country.

The hundertwasser musum is surprisingly engaging!

February 13, 2014 on 3:25 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

In the hundertwasser museum out in the suburbs of Vienna, one can find an unexpected treat in an otherwise rather quiet neighborhood. Sitting forlornely on the side of the Dabune canal, the museum itself seems to appear out of nowhere as you walk past. At one moment there is nothing, just a row of nearly identical houses and buildings, then in the next this fantastic dream of a structure jumps out as a surprise. The interior it just as fanciful as the exterior. and lovers of art would be mistaken not to go in and explore. In a city of museums, after all, this is one of the most engaging!

Writing about MatadorU

February 10, 2014 on 7:00 pm | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Not too long ago I wrote a MatadorU review post where I shared my whole experience about the program.  It’s been quite successful so far since I’ve seen how people have emailed me asking a bit more about the travel writing course.  I’m always happy to help, so I reply to them with all the answers they need.  MatadorU is a great travel writing and photography course that every traveler interested in making a living with his or her writing should take in order to improve his or her chances os making it on the road and traveling for a longer period.

Highlights of the modern day Silk Road

February 5, 2014 on 11:00 am | By | In leisure activities | Comments Off

Modern travelers visiting the Silk Road of the current day may well be pleasently surprised by the amount of history and beauty that remains from the ancient era. Not only are there still incredible Silk Route ruins in countries like Uzbekistan, but even at Iskander Kul in Tajikistan or Issyk kol in Kyrgyzstan ancient stories still maintain legends trying the great conquerers and explorer of history to these locations even in their present states. At Iskander Kul, legend holds that Alexander the Great once rested his armies on the shores of this hidden lake for an entire summer on account of how striken he was with the area’s great beauty. Climbing the hills above the lake, you’ll surely see the appeal that brought Alexander such great joy. At Issyl kol in Kyrgyzstan a similar time period presents a far different story. A large and geologically inexplicable pile of stones on the northern shore of the lake is said to be a monumnet to Alexander’s once vast armies. As the story goes he once marched from these shores to do war with neighboring tribes. On the way to battle he commanded each soldier to place once rock in the pile, and upon return to remove one again. The resulting mass was the monument to all the soldiers who had died in the battle and so were unable to recollect their rocks. Stories like this are a very important part to the mythology surrounding silk road travel today. No matter where you visit in this ancient region, whether the vast and inhospitable deserts of Turkmenistan or the embracing hospitality of the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, you are almost certain to find moments of great beauty and ancient history sidled up right beside signs of modern life and terrible poverty and current social problems. In a way these are the things that make the modern day Silk Road so interesting, and so worth exploring.
