While riding the train to work, I noticed a card lying on the ground. On the card, there was a picture of a large bus with colored lights, and the words “visit us here for a great party bus site“, which got me a little interested. Although most people ride around in these buses when they want to have fun with a large group of people, I thought it would be a neat idea to ride in one alone and just have fun for the day. I went to the website from the card and rented my own party bus for a day.
The bus looked big from the outside, but on the inside it was even bigger. Continue reading “Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride”
Etosha National Park is located in northwest Namibia and has an area of about 22 270 square kilometers. The park is located in Kunene and has Oshana, Otjozondjupa and Oshikoto as the neighboring regions. The name Etosha means “Great White Place”, possibly derived from the massive salt pan that is characteristic of the place that is said to be visible from space. The pan covers about 25% of the park. It was declared a game reserve in 1907 and then elevated to national park status in 1967 through legislation by the then Republic of South Africa, which had jurisdiction at the time. Since then, it has become one of the most important game reserves in Southern Africa.
The park is a habitat for many species of mammals, reptiles, birds and some species that are endangered or threatened. To be more precise, according to Namibian.org, 114 species of mammals, 340 bird species, 110 species of reptiles, 16 species of amphibians and one species of fish. The salty pan used to be a lake that dried up thousands of years ago. However, the pan fills up with water seasonally during heavy rains. The temporary pond attracts large flocks of wading birds
Golf, as we know it, was started in Scotland during the mid-15th century. It is a sport that is filled with history, tradition, and legends. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that golf made its way over to America. If you’re a fan of the sport, traveling to golf courses can be an exciting way to see the world. Here’s a list of five golf courses that every golfer should visit.
1. St. Andrews, Old Course
No list of golf destinations would be complete without talking about St. Andrew’s course. It’s one of the oldest golf courses in the world and is often called the “Home of Golf.” It’s located in Fife, Scotland. You’ll get the chance to soak in the history of golf while digging around for your ball in the Scottish heather.
2. Pebble Beach Golf Links
When you’re done relaxing at their world-class spa, take a swing on the rocky California cliffs at Pebble Beach. They’ve hosted the U.S. Open five times. Take a swing on the same course played on by great golfers such as Jack Nicklaus and Graeme McDowell.

Trying to rein in spending this summer? This year, forgo the pricey vacation and opt for the cheap and cheerful staycation. Staycations can be a surprisingly fun alternative, if you put a little planning and effort into it. Dial down the day-to-day drudgery and schedule in loads of exciting activities – and your holiday will be a resounding success!
Drop the Routine:
- Treat work the same as you would, when out of the country. Can’t avoid being ‘on call’? Keep it to emergencies. Otherwise it isn’t a proper vacation.
- Take care of household chores beforehand, or afterwards. A relaxing holiday doesn’t include laundry, cleaning and grocery shopping.
- Clear the family calendar. Take a break from regularly scheduled obligations, classes and sports. Replace with fun-filled, group activities.
- Set appropriate expectations within your social circle i.e. you’ll be unreachable for the duration, or responding to urgent issues only.
Switch Off Electronics:
- Utilize ‘out-of-office’ settings on computers and phones. Others will be less likely to panic when you don’t respond instantly.
- Turn off the idiot box. PVR your favourite programs and catch up afterwards;

Whether you work, are in school, or are simply stuck in a rut, a trip is a wonderful way to recharge your batteries and lower the level of stress in your life.

If your destination is popular due to the climate, such as a beach or a ski resort, consider reserving a room during the off-season. Many establishments offer significantly reduced rates during the slow times. In some

People usually go on holidays to take a break from their everyday life which is jam-packed with a lot of stress and worries. So, when they are taking a break, why would anyone worry about what they are having in their plate?
But, noticing that you have put on some weight after vacation is something that you would definitely never want. If so, here are a few tips to follow to avoid gaining weight when out on a holiday –
Have meals in small portions: When you travel, your entire body system travels. You walk a lot, your brain thinks and runs more than it typically does, and as a result, you feel butterflies in your stomach, repeatedly. And, when you are hungry, even the slightest aroma can stimulate the hungry, ravenous creature inside. This is when you tend to eat more than your capacity. When on flight, ship
