Benefits of Travel Planning and How to Get Started

If you travel frequently or travel a lot then you must have realized the importance of travel planning. A well planned trip really gets you your money’s worth. You are aware of your schedule, plus you are not wasting your time in figuring out (at the last minute) what to see, what to do, where to eat, etc. But still a lot of people travel with vague plans and without a complete picture. A lot of people say to me that travel planning is hard and time consuming and that if they were to wait for a travel plan then they would not be able to travel at all.

I disagree with all of them. Yes, it takes time to plan a trip but whats the point of traveling to another country or city if you are not going to see the best sites, taste the local food, or experience the top activities. Following are some of the tips that you can use to plan a near perfect trip for yourself.

First of all, zero out on a location where you would like to travel, it may be another city, state or another country.

Second, Why you would like to go there? Maybe some friend or family member went there and were full of praise or may be you read about it on internet or magazine or saw it on TV. Realizing WHY you want to travel to a particular location will help you plan the trip properly. For example, you may want to travel to the New York city to see the skyscrapers, or/and see Statue of liberty or/and may be visits the Museums.

Third, How long i.e. How many days you want to spend in the new place.

Once you have decided WHERE you want to go, understand WHY you want to travel there and decided HOW long you want to visit for, you can then begin preparing your itinerary.

You should start by asking your friends, family & co-workers about the destination that you have selected. If they have not been there, you should ask if anybody they know have traveled to that place. If yes, then don’t be shy of talking to that other person about their experience. Realize that people love to talk about their trips. This way you would learn a lot and maybe make a new friend in the process.

You can watch YouTube videos or watch Travel Channel to get ideas about the place you would like to visit.

Further, Google is your friend, you can search for the location to get tons of information about any place. There are thousands if not millions of Travelogues written virtually about all places on this earth.

Tripadvisor.com is an excellent site to research about any destination. You can ask questions, read about other’s experience etc. But the research on internet is time consuming and you should be diligent.

Lastly, you can even read the travel books, city guides by Frommer’s, Lonely Planet and Fodor’s. These are very well written and cater to all level’s i.e. Newbies, repeat, expert etc.

Top Reasons Why You Should Travel To Australia Soon

If you’ve ever wondered where kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, and the pesky platypus come from, then maybe it’s time to plan your next vacation in the land down under! Australia is a huge country or continent if you will, and covers a vast amount of individuality and distinction among its inhabitants. Most people today live in the coastal regions as the interior or “outback” can be quite a dry and desolate area. There are a few small towns here and there in the interior, like Alice Springs, and the train does travel back and forth, but for the most part people tend to congregate in the big cities along the coast.

Queensland in the north is usually the starting point for visitors who are interested in the Great Barrier Reef and some scuba diving, and it’s also famous for the many crocodiles of various shapes and sizes, including the notorious salt water croc of “The Crocodile Hunter” fame. Remember to stay out of the rivers and streams in this province, because you don’t want to meet up with these big boys face to face!

The southern part of the country can be much milder and cooler and most people really enjoy it here. From Sydney to Melbourne, and across the bottom to Hamilton is a vast expanse of very beautiful countryside with the Grampian Mountains added for some scenery. These mountains are a favorite among outdoor lovers, and there are some great views from the top! I personally climbed one of these on a cold winter day, and there was absolutely no one else coming or going that whole day… It was a lot of work, and toward the top the cold wind was really intense, but the view was amazing and I could see the surrounding area for miles! It was well worth it, and if you get a chance while you are there, give it a go. There are usually well marked trails, so make sure to stay on one and don’t go wandering off the beaten path! You may even see an emu or kangaroo in the wild, and if you go in the summer watch out for the dreaded Brown Snake! They could sure ruin your day if you get bitten!

There is a very interesting “town” called Dunkeld at the base of the Grampian Mountains, and one of the rest stops there was a place called “The Royal Mail”… This is actually a very fine dining restaurant that had just become famous before I got there because the Travel Channel food guru Anthony Bourdain had just done an episode at that very restaurant in the middle of nowhere! The chef is superb, and developed an incredible menu where he uses freshly grown vegetables and herbs right from his garden, and tries to implement as many local ingredients from the area as possible in his selections. Anthony Bourdain loved the food, and he called it the “best restaurant anywhere in Australia”. That’s quite a compliment, coming from him!

At that very same restaurant in the outer bar, I met a man who was carrying around an orphan baby wallaby in his backpack, and he put the sack down and opened it up and showed me it. He said that he carries him like that because he’s not weaned yet, and he has to grow enough hair to be able to stay warm on his own before getting out of the pouch. That is what he would be doing in his mothers pouch anyway, and so it was natural to him. It was great though, because this guy from the town (that the bar keep knew very well), just popped this baby wallaby out and placed him on the bar and no one batted an eye! Sounds straight out of the movie “Crocodile Dundee!”

If you are planning on driving on the roads down there, watch out for that leftover habit from the British, driving on the wrong side of the road! It can be a little dangerous if you aren’t used to it, and also watch out for kangaroos crossing the road, especially at night! They say that it’s not the first one you see that you will hit, it’s the 2nd or 3rd because they travel in packs. I personally came within about a second of hitting a kangaroo at night, so I know what I’m talking about! Take my advice, stay safe and grab a taxi…

So plan your next vacation for Australia, there’s sure to be something there for you! The country is so vast that it will take you several visits to even come close to seeing the whole thing, and don’t forget about Tasmania! That’s part of Australia too, and just across the strait… Have fun!

Finding Better Prices For Expensive Travel Vacations

Lets face it we all love to escape from the pressure and demands of our busy daily lives here in the 21st century. Whether it is for two days or two months the chance to ‘drop out’ and venture away to an exotic location somewhere in the world is irresistible. And, what’s more, you don’t have to pay ridiculous prices to enjoy an expensive travel vacation.

In many parts of the country we are hunkered down in snow and rain dreaming of a vacation paradise. We envision places where we can be pampered by ‘servants’ catering to our every need. This includes everything from umbrella adorned exotic tropical concoctions to personal guides who take us scuba diving in crystal clear, tropic oceans. Picture a horseback ride on endless white sand beaches. Imagine that you can let the child out and laugh to the splash of turquoise water, as well as feel the temperate breezes in their faces and the warmth of tropical sun on bare backs.

Expensive vacation packages often seem out of our reach. In lieu, we try to locate a travel channel or golf resort magazine that can point us to a blissful destination. We only dream of places that can quench our desires for escape. When able to pursue such a vacation, we sadly often find blacked out dates, overbooked resorts, or exorbitant fees to pay just to have the privilege to get away from it all.

Consider obtaining a membership through travel destination clubs that can give you unrestricted access to many destinations around the world. Many of these travel membership plans have no blackout dates or restricted weeks. This puts you in complete control of your next vacation spot. Whether you want to go to Hawaii in peak season or Cabo in fishing season, these memberships offer a service like no other.

As a member to such places, you generally have access anytime to top resort destinations. You will find it easy to book accommodations at many luxury resort destinations. You can even enjoy discounts on all the major cruise lines as well, depending on which membership you join.

Your best bet is to look for memberships that offer no annual dues or exchange fees. Also look out for restricted weeks and blackout dates. Avoiding these traps means you can have year-round access to the worlds top resorts in peak season. With companies competing for your business, you can find just the deals you are looking for.

When you obtain a membership, you basically get to take advantage of having your own travel professionals. These professionals know how to fulfill your specific requests including exact dates, unit sizes, and the number of travelers. This gives you complete freedom and total control to travel when and where you want. This prestigious service will be yours for a lifetime, if you choose.

Wilderness Lodge Resort: Budget Travel for Families

Spring Break..I’m breathing a big sigh of anticipated sadness right here. I have been lucky enough to work in a profession where that term still means something exciting. I have also been blessed with a beautiful child to celebrate it with. He and I are certainly the dynamic duo of travel adventures.

Last April I surprised him with a trip to the Wilderness Lodge Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. I had seen this particular resort on the Travel Channel way back in October or November. It was on a “World’s Biggest” edition, and this place was billed as the “biggest indoor water park in North America.” I booked it for Spring Break right then and it became his “big gift” for Christmas.

I expected big. I got big. The “Hurricane” water slide is the biggest water slide I have ever been on in my entire life. My son’s wide eyed expression on that first drop was worth the entire trip.

I expected to find lots of activities that the two of us could do together. The Wilderness Resort came through here too. There was 3D miniature golf, arcade games, pots to paint (had we been organized enough to do it), movies to watch, lots of restaurants to go to and more water activities than I could ever have anticipated.

There’s nothing like playing Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” on Guitar Hero with your 12 year old son…and reminding him (once again) that you are a bad-ass disguised as the woman that reads bedtime stories and insists on buying wheat instead of white bread.

What I didn’t expect to hold my attention were all the other families that were there having their own Spring Break adventure. My son and I were newbies to this place but I could see from all the gear and snack food loaded in that we were sharing space with pros. The resort charges by the room and the room can sleep six. There is also a microwave and a mini fridge in every room. For families of 5 or 6, this was a fantastic and economical way to spend time together.

I saw more dads in action than I had ever seen, and plenty of family bonding moments that I appreciated. I saw beautiful women with their beautiful kids, and was reminded again that the version of “hot young thing” that I am generally surrounded with on a college campus blossoms with age and experience and seems to radiate more noticeably from people that are genuinely happy.

While my son and I were walking toward one of the big slides I saw a very large shirtless and hairy man with his head back and his eyes closed as his 3 or 4 month old baby girl slept on his chest. I wish I was a photographer. It was a beautiful picture.

The Wilderness Lodge Resort is a fantastic place for families to enjoy their children while they are young. My son and I both loved it. It gave me a chance to “be” with my son and fully participate in his life. It also gave me a chance to find beauty where I hadn’t expected it.

We would absolutely visit this place again. Next time I’ll be packing my own snack supplies and will do a better job of planning out our time to ensure we get an even bigger bang for the buck.

Essay on How to Help Poor and Needy People

Leaving a life that is meaningful is something that everyone needs. However, it is not something going into a spiritual quest. All the spiritual quests are going away from life. Unfortunately, you cannot find the meaning of life by going away from life.

In fact, it can be found only in finding the meaning here in life, not going to some lonely place to meditate. You can find the real essence of life only when you help others because you are living with others and your relationship matters.

Why should you help others?

You are living in this world because there are other people. Can you imagine living on this huge earth alone? Undoubtedly, you will go crazy if you find yourself alone in this world.

Life takes place in relation to others. Whether it’s someone from India or someone from Russia, that does not really matter, it is the same human being. Your idea of separate human is just an idea; otherwise, you all are inter-related and inter-connected.

Hence, by helping the poor, you can make this world a better place to live. People would love to be around you and people will bless you. Blessing never comes from the gods, in fat. It can only come from living beings. Hence, you must help people if you want a blessed life.

How can you help poor people?

If you look at the world closely, then you will see that there is inequality. Governments and other organizations are trying to fix this gap but it will make sense only when you find a way to contribute to the world.

There are many people who even don’t not have food to eat. Now, that is something sad because it is a basic thing that every living being must-have. But humans have become the only creatures that are starving. No other animals and birds are starving.

You would also find kids without education. A world that is not educated would slowly drift away to a bad state. If you want the growth of the world, then you should and must educate poor kids who do not have money to have a good education.

There are people who are also struggling to have shelter and clothes; the world is an utterly depressing place to live now. You must find some way to give shelters to poor people. You might not be able to build a home but you can contribute to the community center to feed and give shelter to the people who live differently in the community.

How should you approach?

You can help people in many ways. For instance, you can take part in cultural exchange programs or you can simply join awareness campaigns to educate poor people
You can help someone having medical treatment and medicines thus giving someone life. There is nothing better than giving life to people
You can see help from NGOs and other organizations that are working towards the betterment of the poor community

In fact, there are a number of ways and means to help poor people. All you need to have is the compassionate heart and a loving mind.

It is time to understand the essence of life by finding the ways to help people because you can only find spiritual satisfaction by h going the people. Poor people might have been born poor but they have all the right to live a rich and beautiful life. You should be instrumental.
