Moreno Glacier

July 31, 2011 on 7:45 pm | By | In leisure activities

The region of Patagonia in Argentina is home to some incredible sights. Mountains that seem to stretch into the heavens and lakes so blue that it also seems surreal. But travel itineraries in Argentina wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the amazing Perito Moreno Glacier. This is one of the most active glaciers in the world as it is constantly on the move. It stretches for miles down the valley towards a lake before dumping hoards of ice into the lakes cold waters. Throughout the day hundreds of thunderous avalanches can be heard crashing down from the ice. The glacier is not just a must see place in Argentina, but one of the places that should be high on your bucket list.

Can I buy Travel Insurance after I start travelling?

July 31, 2011 on 10:34 am | By | In leisure activities

It is very true that some companies will insist you to purchase travel insurance when you are still in your country of residence. They impose strict policies on this. However, some companies allow you to purchase travel insurance if you forget to avail it in your place of residence. But these companies rarely exist so, better get insurance before travelling for you to enjoy your holidays without worrying the risks.  You can find this information by doing a travel insurance comparison

Ideally, backpacker travel insurance should be availed together with the travel tickets and some other accommodations. Through this, you will be covered to any cancellations that will happen because of your insurance. You do not need to worry about any disaster or unexpected incidents because the insurance company will be responsible for the damages or loss. However, if you fail to avail travel insurance during your trip, remember that all is not lost.

What do most insurance companies cover?

Most international travel insurance companies cover medical expenses. Whatever will happen to you, if it is related to health, they will cover the expenses you incur. However, to people who have pre-existing conditions, you will not be covered as most policies on medical expenses exclude pre-existing conditions. There are also travel insurance companies that cover the expenses related to unexpected cancellation of flights like death, major disaster, and medical advice. Some travel insurance companies cover the loss or damage of the belongings. They will refund whatever is lost, damaged or stolen. If you die during your travel adventure, most companies will give burial assistance. Companies have different policies regarding any kind of insurance. If you want to avail it, just present some important documents or papers they need to have a reimbursement of your expenses.

Reading of The Best Places to Retire

July 30, 2011 on 10:16 am | By | In leisure activities

If you’re at that age (of “golden vintage”), you’re likely trying to figure out what to do with all of that “downtime” that’s coming your way. Perhaps you aren’t even thinking about “being put down.” Perhaps you intend on working and living, just the way you are this very day, straight through to your 90s. And you know what? That’s good; more power to you. More people should think this way; because, what’s the use of dreaming up some of the best places to retire in, if you sort of relegate yourself, or “retire” yourself (for the lack of a better term) in luxury, if you’re not going to be end up competing in the end? In other words: why would you give up? Now, there’s a strong point to be made for vacations; even month long vacations, at this point. But full-out retirement? Maybe not. Maybe what you’re thinking of, in terms of “best retirement states” are good places to invest in. In terms of real estate: you know, in terms of second, third, fourth homes (vacation homes).

Montana’s a good place. Montana’s attractive because of that whole rancher lifestyle. Heck, you could even apply for USDA certification for some of your livestock. It’s not only good fun, but it’s gritty, it’s visceral, and it’s a way to reinvigorate yourself (thoroughly). So take on that perspective, the next time you catch yourself, flipping through the glossy magazine while flying cross country in your business class seat. You can still read all of those “best states for retirement” lists and articles. But again: take that “fourth home” perspective to it, instead.

Trying to Convince My Wife

My neighbor called me last week and asked me if I wanted to come over and test drive his polaris atv. Of course, I was more than happy to do this. After all, I have been trying to talk my wife into letting me get an ATV for quite some time. However, she does not want me to get one because she says that one of our children will end up hurt. I have tried to tell her that I will not let them on it.

A Lengthy Bargain Holiday Break

July 29, 2011 on 10:11 am | By | In leisure activities

Chatting away to the delivery guy one unusually warm Friday afternoon, he told me that i would not be seeing him again for the next three Fridays as he was off on his holidays. He told me that he had been waiting for his wife to make a decision about where she wanted to go, he also said that she had taken too much time on choosing somewhere that he had decided to do it all himself. He had looked on line for some Bargain Holidays and was quite surprised to find there was much more out there than he imagined, the prices were so affordable that he had opted for a much longer holiday than he had first intended on. So him and his wife are off to Greece next week. So guess what i will be doing when i get home this evening? that’s right looking for a bargain of my own.
