One of the issues many people have a problem with in regard to going on vacation is spending. When faced with souvenirs, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, or other situations, impulse shopping leads travelers to purchase more than they intended.

Scuba Diving: Rules Now Allowing Kids to Dive In

Let’s face it; there are some of us out there who could be considered pretty irresponsible, even as adults. So, with this attitude, one might worry that giving every adult the OK to learn to scuba dive is concerning. Hopefully those who take the plunge are mature enough to realize that scuba diving can be hazardous business if you don’t know what you’re doing. Recently, the minimum age for a diver has been dropped. At first, it’s an alarming fact, but the reasoning behind it gives it a little more logic.

First, let’s look at the old rule vs. the new rule. Originally, a diver was required to be at least 12 or older in to qualify for junior certification. The new rule declares that children 10 and older are now eligible for junior certification. The only organizations that are going by the old, standard rule are the YMCA and the NAUI for the time being.

Your Dream Holiday Can Come True In… Kenya!

You might be excited about choosing Kenya as your preferred vacation destination, but also not sure how the vacation will go if you have never ventured there before. A wonderful vacation in Kenya is definitely possible…all you need to do is to plan ahead.

  • Hotel selection – Kenya has a number of hotels good and leisurely in its own standards. However, it often is best to select a venue that is not too common if you’re looking to relax, as they tend to be overcrowded and thus you will not have peace and privacy. Make a list of your top choices and peruse through the client views of each venue on the Internet to make an informed choice.
  • Enroll for packages – This is a sure way of having fun while still cost cutting. Different hotels have different packages for their client’s interests. It’s possible to get that dream spa treatment, massages, and sauna for a much reduced cost if all are purchased as a whole. Relax and spoil yourself. You are there on holiday, after all.

How Much Home Do You Need When Traveling?

We’ve touched upon the subject before in previous posts, but today I am doing a lot of reflection about what travel means to me and wondering what it means to others. Do you travel to get completely away from what you know, or are there some creature comforts that are important for you to have when you go away? With globalization, internet and the huge amount of information available to travelers, sometimes it feels like it’s possible to see the same things everywhere you go.

When Seven Just Isn’t Enough

OK class, I would like to start today’s lesson with a question: which of you is considered the eighth wonder of the world? Alright, alright, quiet everyone settle down. Not all at once. Let’s try this again: raise your hand if you are considered the eighth wonder of the world. Wow, that’s a lot of you. I wasn’t expecting so many. Alright, I’m going to have to narrow down the field a little bit. Seriously this lesson won’t work if there’s more than one of you. If you’re a natural wonder, lower your hand. That’s right Grand Canyon, you can put your hand down. Giant’s Causeway, you too. You know what, just get out. You reek of Guinness.

Alright, now that that is settled, let’s narrow it down some more. If you’re a wonder from Europe, put your hand down. Hagia Sophia, stop playing the two continents card, we’re sick of it. You’re not special, put your hand down. I don’t care if you live in America, Statue of Liberty, we all know that under that toga you’re French birthright is growing out of your follicles, particularly in the armpit area. Put your hand down and get a razor for goodness’ sake.

When It’s Time To Return To Ohio

SNORKELING AT JOHN PENNEKAMP CORAL REEF STATE ...

I was in Maui for nine days. The weather was perfect, the drinks were fruity and I was having a good ol’ time. It was my first trip to the island and I had met some great people and enjoyed every second of my time there. By day six I was actually starting to completely understand how so many of the locals had just come for vacation and ended up staying. It all seemed perfectly reasonable. For me, the prospect to heading back to rainy Ohio just didn’t seem like that great of an idea.

Day seven my illusion was shattered as we had a rainy, windy day and I realized that even in Hawaii you can be subject to inclement weather. To be fair, I knew it wouldn’t last long, but I was still a little disappointed that there would be a blemish on an otherwise perfect trip to that point.
