Let’s go to Bali, Indonesia!

Accordingly, the most romantic place in Asia where a newly wed couple should spend a holiday together, or perhaps anybody can do, is Bali, Indonesia. And yes, I also do believe that. In fact, I had been dreaming and wishing to spend at least three days to relax and feel the fresh and calming noise and air of the resort in Bali, either with my hubby and son or just me alone. Anything will do, but of course, getting there with my family is better than having myself solo backpacking.

There are several activities to do in Bali, Indonesia. Things range from relaxing in a resort alongside the seashore in front of the calm waves of the oceans, do exciting water sports under the kisses of the heat of the sun, trying out all those sumptuous exotic food offered in the city and a lot more. These are all can be experienced in one of the cities of Bali, the Seminyak.

Seminyak is the city capital of Bali. It is one of the most popular holiday destination islands in Indonesia. There, you will not only enjoy the sands and waters, but also the mountains and jungles. Seminyak Bali things to do are a lot even more than you could imagine.

If you are traveling alone and you opt to just stay in a resort, there are a lot of luxury resorts to choose from. You could also choose to better stay in a budget-friendly stop if you are on a really tight budget. Food is not a problem. There are many restaurants and food stalls that offer local, exotic as well as international food to try on. These are all pocket-friendly as well.

For a family travel with kids, there are also great places to try where kids will sure to enjoy while the mommy and daddy will not be left outcasted. Food for the picky eater kids is not a problem as well as for the kids-at-heart because there are food stops that serve a variety of food to choose and to enjoy.

Tourist life experience in Bali doesn’t end as the sun sets. There are a lot more to enjoy during the night for the whole family. Kids can enjoy the night shows of fire dances and more while the adults can have their thrifty and pocket-saving experience in the night market. The whole family can also try the food best served during the night, which are perfect for the ambiance and relaxing places in Bali.

Stepping Up Your Summer Travel Experience with an RV

With its abundance of gorgeous weather, it makes perfect sense that summer is widely regarded as the season of travel. Now that motorists no longer have to worry about snow, ice, sleet and the rest of the threats posed by harsh winter weather, driving conditions are once again favorable. Couple that with kids being on summer vacation, and you have the perfect recipe for a fun-filled family travel excursion. Anyone in the market for an effective way to improve their next family vacation would do well to invest in a motor home or travel trailer. As you’ll find, a reliable RV can be a tremendous boon to your next family jaunt.

Plenty of Legroom

Lack of space is among the worst things about embarking on a family road in a traditional car, truck or van. Both children and adults start to feel restless, uncomfortable and cranky when forced to endure such cramped conditions for an extended period. Alternatively, a spacious motor home or fifth wheel trailer will enable your fellow travelers to stretch their legs whenever the mood may strike. In addition to curbing on-the-road restlessness, having an RV at your disposal will eliminate the need to make a stop every time a member of your travel party feels the urge to move around. Roomy, affordable RVs can be found in abundance at Ocean Grove RV Supercenter, the most trusted RV retailer in Saint Augustine, FL.

Restroom Access

Pit stops often act as a hindrance to staying on schedule. Having to find a gas station or restaurant every time someone in your party has to answer the call of nature can be cumbersome, to say the least. Fortunately, many motor homes are equipped with full bathrooms, ensuring that restroom breaks no longer interfere with your family’s travel schedule.

No More Boredom

Motor homes are essentially apartments on wheels. As such, many of them feature the same amenities you’ll find in any modern-day residence. Said amenities include entertainment centers, kitchenettes and comfy sleeping areas. With ready access to all the comforts of home, your children are liable to think twice before they complain about boredom while en route to your destination.

The family vacation is a summertime staple. Unfortunately, embarking on one in a traditional vehicle is synonymous with a number of frustrations. Cramped travel conditions, cranky kids and on-the-road are issues that have plagued family road trips for decades. Fortunately, a roomy, dependable motor home or travel trailer will effectively nip those problems in the bud.

Tight Budget Travels

Travelling is like de-stressing for me from the real world as I can freely breathe with no heart-pounding calls and attendance from hours of duty. It’s a day to loosen the tightly beating pulse and unclenching the rigid calf muscles. But what’s more relaxing when travelling is when you have your travel itinerary a less to no hassle or mind-boggling pocket threats. What I simply means is that you do not need to get stirred with lots of credits during and after the travel. One way to ward yourself off from this is to avail for PISO fares offered by selected airline companies such as Cebu Pacific Air and Air Asia Philippines.

Tight Budget Travels

This PISO fare is exclusive of the other charges. This is yet the base fare which is something to seized for once offered. In fact, there is really a big difference when availing this PISO fare than paying for the regular fares for your travels. The domestic flights, for instance, from Manila to Davao City and vice versa usually costs less than 1,000.00 PhP including charges and a baggage fee for up to 25 kilograms. Comparing this to the regular fare which usually up to 7,000.00 PhP. Isn’t PISO fare a big savings then?

Moreover, there are also available PISO fare for international flights like Philippines to anywhere in Asia such as China, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. Availing for the said fare when travelling outside the Philippines is a huge savings. Surely, any backpacker would have much for his pockets for souvenirs and other travel stuff than just merely spending it on the travel fares alone.

Aside from what have mentioned above, other expenses each traveler should put an eye at includes hotels and other staycation, food, and other emergency or not-on-the-list expenses. However, some of these can be waived upon such as the hotel and staycation if you will have it booked earlier than the said travel. Hotels also offer cheap or on promo staycation like the Cheap hotel dijakarta in Indonesia. You can save for your food since many hotels offer free breakfast and other complimentary food during your stay.

So basically, travelling now adays, be it domestically or internationally, is not really that head-cracking since everything is up for grabs. One just needs to be wise and clever enough when availing online promos for travels and patient enough to wait for these offers.

My New Place Means Expensive Plane Fares

Moving to my new place meant that I had to leave my old scrubs uniforms. I have new uniforms now and I hope that I won’t be changing new ones anytime soon.

I was a bit glad though that when I traveled and moved to my new place, I did not have to bring a heavy luggage. I made sure that I brought with me the most important and necessary things only. It saved me a lot of space and was not even able to pay for excess baggage. Now that I live a bit farther from my hometown, that also means plane fares a bit expensive too and traveling time is a bit longer also. I hope that the next move will be a few years from now.
