tinyplanes September 12, 2018

Today’s traveler is looking for something more than the typical souvenir t-shirt as a memento of their trip. Just like you, they want something unique that reflects their own personal taste. Use the following ideas to create your own one-of-a-kind treasures.

Professional Photos

Your typical snapshots are special, but if you want a truly wonderful way to remember your vacation, hire a photographer. Have them come to your resort for a photo session. Ask when you book your room if there is anyone they recommend. Many places have a resort photographer willing to take personal portraits. You will also find that theme parks like Walt Disney World have professional photographers strolling through the parks that can take some pretty amazing photos for you.

Vacation Scrapbooks

Scrapbooks can keep the entire family busy during the trip as well as when you get home. Have everyone look for items they can add to the scrapbook. Keep ticket stubs, park maps, and brochures to use as background pages. Once the trip is over, you will all enjoy sharing your contributions as you put the book together and reminisce about all you saw and did while traveling.

Start a Collection

Collect something while traveling that will remind you of where you spent your vacation. If you are staying at a beach, gather shells. When walking through the woods, gather tiny pinecones. Be creative, and use your imagination. Just make sure you are not breaking any rules when doing so. When you get home you can place them in a glass vase or bowl for display. Even pebbles from a creek can become a beautiful souvenir. Take it one step further by adding a strand of lights.

Whether you have professional pictures taken, create a scrapbook, or start a collection, you will come home with a unique souvenir that your family will treasure forever. Each time you look at it, you will be instantly transported back to that wonderful time and place.

Out On The Water

Suzana August 3, 2018

There’s nothing like feeling the breeze through your hair while you’re on a boat on the lake. Before looking at Lake Chelan rentals, there are a few things that you should consider about the type of boat you get and the safety aspects to consider. The busiest time for renting a boat is Memorial Day to Labor Day. If you know that you’re going to be on the water in the summer, then you want to make reservations for your rental as soon as possible so that you get a vessel that is large enough for your family and one that everyone will enjoy. If you wait until the off-season, then you can usually get lower rates on the rental and have more options available as many businesses are willing to offer deals so that they make some kind of money when people aren’t on the water.

Make sure everyone on the boat is prepared for any kind of weather condition that might arise. When you’re on the lake, it’s usually hot. This means that you want to have swimsuits and clothing that doesn’t cling to the skin. You also need life jackets on the boat not only for the safety of everyone on board but because it’s often a requirement by the state. Keep plenty of sunscreen with you because the sun’s rays will be reflected off the surface of the water. This can result in sunburns that occur much faster than if you were on land or if you were at a pool. A cooler with beverages for everyone in the family is an idea to consider as well. You also need snacks in case you spend more time on the water than planned. Pay attention to the boating laws in your state, and make sure you have all of the proper documents with you in case you are stopped while on the water.…

Why you need a Luggage Storage Company in London

tinyplanes July 22, 2018

Luggage storage companies in London offer secure and convenient luggage storage solutions around town and in key areas to help clients enjoy a hands-free experience while they are out and about.

Luggage storage might be the last the thing that comes to your mind when planning your travel to the city, however, it is perhaps the most important. Walking around town with your suitcase is difficult because there are lots of people and activities. But that’s not much of a problem if you are heading home. However, if you have a meeting or an errand to run, or you just need to have fun, the luggage can and will make it hectic for you.

 

What to do about it:

If you’re heading for a meeting, or are just out to have fun, and you are heavily (or just fairly) loaded with your luggage, a good idea would be to drop it in a luggage store for the day, so you can do whatever it is you were planning to do without straining. Sometimes, even the smallest bags can restrict you from doing things.

That leads us to our topic, why you need luggagestorage.london, here are some reasons:

 

Temporarily store your luggage

By temporarily, we mean a few minutes, a few hours, a few days, a week, or a month. There are companies that even offer storage services up to a year — just be sure to ask about this upfront. The temporary storage allows you to walk around, freely, without the stress of dragging your bags wherever you go (whether it’s shopping, swimming, nature walking or business meeting).

 

A safe way to store the luggage

London is a safe town; however, there are times when you don’t want to walk around with your valuables – like a computer, an expensive jewel, a camera and all. In such cases, your best shot is to leave your valuables in a storage facility where they can keep them safely for you. Be sure to tell them what is in your bag, for obvious reasons.

 

Convenience

Sometimes, you will want to leave your luggage in a hotel room, so you do not have to worry about anything while you are doing your business. However, there are other times when you need to carry something that you will use later on in the day once you are done with your business. Instead of having to go back to your hotel room, you can just carry your bag and drop it at a storage company for a few hours, then pick it up later and proceed with your plans. This is also ideal if you are travelling after your business.

 

Enjoy a hands-free experience

If you are heading to a business meeting, you want to present yourself in an organised and relaxed way, not all sweaty, tired, and grumpy. So, you’ll definitely need to leave your luggage at a storage facility. The same is true when you’re out to have fun.

How to Travel the Globe with Next to Zilch in Your Bank Account

Suzana June 14, 2018

If your bank account lacks in funds, your life doesn’t have to lack in good travel experiences. Here’s how you can travel the world, or simply the United States, with little to no cash to begin with.

Start a Business of Essential Services, i.e. House Sitter, Pet Sitter, or Temp Personal Assistant

There are some services that will never go out of fashion. House sitters, pet sitters, nannies, and personal assistants are all shining examples of the kinds of services that someone, somewhere is seeking to hire for—all of the time. So, put yourself out there. Begin a business that starts locally, then expand those services to incorporate where you want to go, like North Carolina coast rentals that allow you to relax for a few days seaside. You could work for revenue. Or, you could work for room, board, and meals.

Opt for a Teaching Degree to Help Children in Other Countries

Teaching degrees, especially English Second Language courses, are hire priorities for world travelers. Why? Because there are hundreds of underprivileged children that would love to have that kind of education. You could get a traveling teaching degree, with a single specialty, that would benefit the lives of some of the locals where you would love to travel.

Or, Volunteer to Build and Work to Help Countries Affected by Poverty or Natural Disasters

Apply to be a part of something bigger than yourself by joining a traveling group to volunteer your time somewhere it’s needed. You can see the countryside and sites, of course, but you can also dedicate yourself to helping others. Look to churches, charities, and college clubs to get started with a sign up.

Another few ways to travel with little to no cash are 1) become a flight attendant or cruise ship attendant, or 2) crowdfund your dreams and then write a travel blog about your experiences. In all honesty, a little money to start out with is ideal, but you CAN travel the world with zilch in your bank account. It IS possible. You just need to be innovative in your ideas to make it happen.…

What is the Big Bang Theory?

Suzana May 9, 2018

The Big Bang Theory is the theory of the origin of the universe that has the most widespread acceptance in the international science community. It posits that the entire universe began with an explosion of concentrated energy. The term “big bang” was first used to describe the origin of the universe in 1949 by an English astronomer called Fred Hoyle during an interview on BBC radio.

Astronomers suggest that the Big Bang explosion set things in motion. Not only did it create the universe, but it launched it in a literal sense. In recent decades, astronomers have observed that galaxies appear to be in moving. This motion is not a random drifting, but they seem to be moving outwardly from a distant point of origin.

Therefore, the theory holds that the Big Bang was the explosion that birthed all of the galaxies within the universe and hurled them into space like debris shooting outward from a bomb blast in all directions. Astronomers have observed that galaxies appear to be continuously moving on the trajectory set in motion by the initial explosion.

Proponents of the Theory That the Universe is Expanding

Edwin Hubble, the astronomer that the famous telescope is named for, is credited as the foremost proponent of the Expanding Universe Theory. In fact, he observed that the universe was expanding as early as 1925, before the term “Big Bang” was ever used. Other important scientists have contributed to the theory. Albert Einstein attempted to view cosmology through his famous “General Theory of Relativity.” Through his calculations, Einstein was already theorizing that the universe was not motionless as early as 1917.

Today, the Big Bang Theory as the most plausible explanation for the origin and continued movement of the universe.…
