Honeymoon Tips

Most often than not, couples spend so much of their preparation time on the wedding details that they tend to overlook the specifics of their honeymoon.

Unfortunately, the honeymoon usually comes right after the chaos of wedding celebrations giving newlyweds no time to rectify their lack of preparation. So, they just rush into their pre-booked flights and discover too late that they have cooked up a big anti climax instead of a spectacular highlight. You don’t want to commit the same mistake.

Set a time to sit down and talk it over. You don’t need to allot more than a day or two to do this. Most couples tend to forgo after-wedding preparations because of the erroneous belief that it will take so much time from their hectic schedule for before-the-wedding preparation. In fact, you can discuss the matter during your free time together such as during lunch or dinner. The important thing is that you have allotted a particular time to talk about your ideas on where and how you want to spend your first few days or weeks as a married couple. This will give you the right mind-set to focus on just one topic – your honeymoon!

Agree on a budget. Weddings can be costly and you don’t want to worry about your finances during your first year as a couple. So, set a budget that you can afford and not a budget that you wish you had. This amount will guide you in choosing where you can go, where you can stay, what entertainment options you can enjoy and what types of restaurants you can visit. Remember, you don’t have to break the bank to have a wonderful honeymoon. All it takes is good planning and a touch of creativity on your part.

Discuss where you want to celebrate love and romance together. It is important to see eye to eye on your destination. You want to have a great time as a couple, so you want to consider each others interests when choosing a honeymoon spot. You may also want to recall the places you’ve visited together and consider the sites that gave both of you much fun and excitement. It could be a tropical beach, a winter getaway, a glamour camping trip or an African safari.

Book everything in advance. Early birds do not just get to save but also get to have more time to enjoy. Advance bookings, from your flights to your massages, usually get discounted prices compared to on-the-spot appointments. When you get to your destination, you will not have to waste your precious time on this mundane task but you can immediately get on with having a good time. Moreover, it’s a convenient way to avoid joining the usual queue. With pre-bookings, you can be sure to have your preferred restaurant, service or activity available at your convenience.

Finally, take advantage of honeymoon perks on offer. Hotels, restaurants, spas and what-have-you usually have special prices and/or freebies for newly weds. So take time to find out what privileges are available for you to enjoy. These bonuses are usually designed to create an atmosphere of romance and passion for the newlyweds – just perfect, don’t you think?  Oh… And congratulations!

The Buzz of Airport Transfers

The Buzz of Airport Transfers

Airports have a special aura around them and deliver an electric feeling that very few buildings are capable of giving. The airport is always in a state of motion, acting as a conveyor belt for the benefit of holidaymakers and business people. Airport transfers take you to the entrance teeming with people, and with taxis and space wagons all around. Each of such vehicles will be bringing forth people and families looking forward to an exciting vacation. The physical structure of terminals may not be in a state of change, but airport transfer services are. The airport can be compared to the skin and bones while the travellers are rightly called the pumping blood. They come and go, and in between indulge in eating and drinking. Vehicles, luggage porters, baggage handling personnel, security aspects – all these add to the buzz in an airport.

Airport has a sort of greater liveliness about them when compared to a school or a hotel. Transfers between the various terminals, each serving different countries and continents take the figure of trains or conveyor belts, and internal transfers have been evolving with time. One can see fidgety businessmen holding on to bottles of perfume meant for their so- called neglected wives, Canadian backpackers binging on the previous night’s surplus and pensioners indulging in Spanish south. Transfers dash along the broad corridors of Singapore terminal, on their way to Thailand to the north, or Indonesia to the south. People who arrive late in Amsterdam race towards the flight to the USA. The entire game of people going places continues without a break.

Unceasing in its unrelenting buzz, the airport is one entity that is almost unfeasible to pin down. The airport’s temporary residents otherwise called passengers would finally go to their tubes and go through the in-flight magazines in a very careless manner. Beginning to come off a satisfying shopping or costly airport food, these passengers or travellers would be impatiently waiting for the take off of their respective flights and going up into the blue or grey sky. There also, they are waiting for another kind of experience.

The vignettes of red sparkling wine from flight 209 and black coffee from another, the compact lasagne of Italy, the small spring rolls of the Shanghai- all are bound to leave an indelible impression in the minds of these travelling lot. It will take some time for the enriching experience of air travel to leave the person’s psyche. The phenomenon of jet lag is the result of this experience; the letting-go of the heady world of mini dishes and curd pots, sparkling wine refills and bottles of that malted liquid.

At the other end, activities continue at the usual pace; airport transfers to different destinations or perhaps transfers to their homes and familiar beds. Sometimes the process of checking out can be pathetic when the human train gets delayed by passport checks or when the luggage fails to appear on the other side. Suitcase retrieved, its time to exit the structure to the lap of the earth.

Backpacking Hiking – Important Equipment To Have A Great Time

Backpacking Hiking – Important Equipment To Have A Great Time

If you are planning to go backpacking hiking you need to make sure that you have the right equipment. A lot of this backpacking hiking equipment will depend on where you are planning to go. Hiking backpacking equipment is important because if you are uncomfortable or do not have what you need a fun and enjoyable hike can become miserable very quickly.

What You Need To Have The Most Fun Backpacking Hiking

The first thing you need to enjoy backpacking hiking is a good pair of boots. When you set out on natural trails you will be traveling across rough terrain with roots and tocks. A sturdy set of boots will protect your feet from the hocks while supporting your ankles to keep them from turning. Usually a solid pair of boots will have good sturdy soles so that you can grip the terrain well and not slip and fall.

Lightweight boots are available and provide all of the sturdiness and grip of a much heavier thicker boot in a lighter configuration. Boots are probably the most important piece of equipment when you are planning to go backpacking hiking. Whenever you go out into the woods you need to bring along the 10 essentials and something to carry them in. A backpack with wide padded straps and a waist belt is the best way to carry these.

In the 1930′s mountaineers outlined the following items as being essentials: map, compass, water and a way to purify it, extra food, rain gear and extra clothing, fire starter and matches, first aid kit, Swiss Army knife or multi-purpose tool, flashlight, sunglasses and sunscreen. Regardless of how short a hike you are going on you are going to want to make sure that you have these items.

There is always a chance you can get lost, and if so you want to be prepared.  These items will make sure of this. Next up for your backpacking hiking trip is your clothing. It is important that you wear layers of clothing when you go out on the trail. By layering you clothing you can ensure that not only are you keeping yourself warm, but that you can also take off layers if you get hot.

Make sure that your outer layer is not only waterproof and windproof but breathable as well. In addition a good pair of hiking pants is a good investment. I would not go on a backpacking hiking trip in shorts as many times branches and plants can tear up your legs. Socks are also important, so make sure you get a nice thick padded pair of socks.
