I had been mentioning here before that we have been into a lot of road trips — unexpected road trips actually. And because most of us, in our circle of friends, are not coming from Metro Manila, there’s no other means for us to enjoy our road trips but to make use of our GPS applications in our cellular phones, tablets and in our laptops.
Cellular Phone GPS
Yes, you heard it! Because the car we used has had no GPS device installed, the newly bought new apple macbook pro of our friend was being utilized as it also had GPS application on it.
GPS, by the way, or the Global Positioning System is a space-based satellite navigation system which helps provide location and even weather conditions. But what this device had provided us was the exact and the shortest possible way we can utilize to arrive in time considering the turtle-like flow of the traffic to where we really would be.
If you haven’t tried the benefits of GPS yourself, then you should now!
When traveling or visiting new places, there is just one thing we always keep in mind — to what souvenir items we can grab from such place and have them as presents to our friends and loved ones. Isn’t it?
Souvenir Items: Sequin Bangles (image from bowsandsequins.com)
Just like the image above, sequin bangles are one of the souvenir items I personally make sure to have in hand as soon as I go home from any travel. And one very fashionable sequin bangles to check out are the Reeds Sequin bangles. Yes, those bangles are very classy and elegant and sure to be loved by anybody especially given as a gift or pressie from travel.
Nowadays, any gadgets have had been included in the list of stuff to bring in any backpacking events. These gadgets include laptops, net books, iPad, or mobile computing devices. One of the reasons for this is for the backpackers or travelers to still be updated with the latest events and happenings even though they are out of town.
Personally, I do bring some gadgets during travels. Aside from the above mentioned reason, this is also for me to back up my photos taken during the travel directly in my laptop or other devices. However, lately, I just have a problem with portable computing device because of the damaged hard drive of my laptop and that, it functions real slow. I still am looking for reliable technician to do my slow computer and fix it then.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, hopefully I can join the backpacking travel plans my friends are organizing and by that time also, my laptop will be working fine as well.
The Philippine airline companies have had cancelled flights since August 19, 2013 to date due to typhoon ‘Maring‘.
Aside from the danger after take off, areas going and surrounding the airport terminals are highly flooded and almost not passable by autos. I personally don’t have any ideas when will the weather be calm and the operations of the airline companies will normally operate. However, the companies have already announced that they will not charge the passengers for the rescheduling of their respective flights.
School trips are hugely valuable experiences for students and also a proven way of learning. They can introduce students to new languages, cultures, religion, history, food, art and much more, and there are companies that can arrange and carry out these trips too, allowing you to sit back and relax.
For many people, their favourite memories of years spent at school will be the trips and tours that they went on because they were great fun and an opportunity to spend time with their classmates outside of the classroom. As well as this they would have been introduced to new places and new experiences because these trips and tours are a great way to get students to learn and become interested in certain topics. They are a proven and effective way of learning through encouraging the student to learn through engaging and being active, as opposed to reading out of a textbook in a classroom. If the trip is to another country it will also teach the student valuable life skills which cannot be covered effectively in the classroom, so the advantages of these trips are clear.
As valuable as these trips are, they are also very difficult to plan and carry out which, if you have not done before (and even if you have), can be very daunting. You will need to consider things such as travel, food, accommodation, activities and more, and of course safety is the most important thing of all. Thankfully there are some excellent companies out there that are experts in planning, arranging and carrying out fun, educational and safe school trips to a wide range of destinations. This includes trips to France, Italy, Germany, Spain, other areas in Europe and even places further afield too, and all of these trips will be packed full of fun and valuable experiences for the students and also for yourself. These trips will introduce the students to new cultures, languages, politics, religions, history, art, food and much, much more.
The trip can be planned with your supervision so that it can be tailored to what you will want to do, and this travel company will also arrange all the travel, accommodation and more for you, and this will allow you to sit back and enjoy the trip with your students. It is a great chance for you to get to know your students a bit better and spend some time with them outside the classroom which will have a fantastic impact on classroom dynamics on your return. You are sure to find these trips as fun and fascinating as the students too, so it is clear why school travel is so popular and why so many schools seek help from companies that are experts in putting on these trips.
Treat your students to an experience that they will never forget and cherish forever, and allow them to learn a huge amount and also learn some valuable life skills. There are a wide range of trips and tours for you to go on which can be tailored to your preference too, so take a look today to see what brilliant destinations are available and all the fun and educational things that you can see and do too.
