There's More to Traveling Than You Know


My family loves to travel but this has taken a back seat for the past couple of years due to our busy schedule and of course due to our never ending home improvement projects.  My daughter has been urging me to travel again but I've explained to her that I have to set priorities and our home improvement projects and investments should come first.  After all, we can still enjoy going for trips as soon as our projects are completed.  On the second thought, traveling does not only pertain to those expensive trips abroad, local travels are also  least go for included, so I told my son one day while I was reading the interview with p-nut that we should at least travel once every year whether locally or abroad, the most important thing is we are able to see new places each year.  If our budget is till tight, we could choose a destination which will not really require us to spend a lot and that we can still enjoy.

We have agreed to visit a place or two from the top local destinations during their scheduled home leave.  I guess this will not be an issue to their Dad who also love to go for adventures with the family.  So I guess, from now on, we will try to schedule a trip or two each year.

I love traveling!

Travel Quotes


Having traveled to some destinations locally and abroad, there's only one thing that I've realized, and that is there's a lot more to learn from other people and culture.  Sometimes, we thought reading books and articles is all what we need to know everything but through my years of traveling, I've learned that the best way to learn and educate myself is through real life experiences... that is interacting with people, observing their culture, learning their language and seeing their way of life right in front of your very eyes.

There's a lot more to travels than enjoying a beautiful spot and feasting with the foods.  It's the experience, it's the pleasure of being with people that matters most.

I love traveling! 

Useful Apps For A Frequent Traveler

If you are a frequent traveler, chances are you always wanted to stay connected.  This is already expected as nobody wants to miss any important updates from home while you are enjoying on your much awaited trip.  Well, the good news is, the advent of technology made it easier for us to travel without worries.  Here are some travel apps that were surely proven to be very useful by most travelers:

First of course, who doesn't know about SKYPE?  Communicating with your family, friends and business associates will never be easy without SKYPE.  Calling from PC to PC is free and you can also save a lot calling a cellphone by just availing of SKYPE credits which are relatively cheaper than availing the normal CP to CP charges.

Triplt is another APP that could help you access many important information and at the same time organize your travel documentations.  This could help you save time and hop in from one destination to another in a breeze.

If you're traveling in a group and everything is a shared expense, Trip Splitter would be a good option as it helps you to map your expenses complete with photos and receipts.  I have heard about Journ but I can't say much as I have never really explored it's features but I guess, this is another APP that is worth checking.

For sending photos, you may want to try Postagram.  As we are already in a digital age, sending post cards through a snail mail won't really be the best option as you need to spend time going to the physical store, buy postcards, go to the post office and if you are unlucky, you may need to waste time to fall in line just to send your post cards.  You may opt to spend that time for shopping, buying souvenirs or looking for some great finds like mitchell instruments.  Maybe this is cheaper compared to your own country, who knows?

Having these APPS handy would be of great help especially when you are only have few days before your planned trip and preparing everything in an instant would be next to impossible.  I might be exploring more apps soon and hopefully there are still more that we could use and enjoy. :)
