Is RVing Becoming Increasingly Popular?

Well, it certainly looks like the popularity Of RVing is on the increase, not just here in the United States, but also in Canada!  This has been reported in an article written in the March 2010 RV News section of the Camping World Newsletter.  Whether working and using the RV for a weekend getaway or traveling to a National Park for a two-week vacation, the RV makes the perfect way to go.

Self-contained these vehicles afford the RVer with the ability to save money usually spent on hotel rooms and restaurants.  These Recreational Vehicles also allow the traveler to enjoy the ability of pulling off at roadside rest stops along the interstates and take a nap, fix and eat a meal, or to catch up on the news or favorite sports game by turning on their built-in satellite TV dish.
Americans love to travel, and with the price of first-class airline tickets, being sky high not to mention, the inconvenience with all the hassle of air travel (i.e.: long ticket counter lines, long lines to be processed through security screening process, having to arrive at least a couple of hours early before boarding time, traveling with persons who may be sick, etc.).
With a motorhome, you just get it packed and serviced prior to your planned departure date at your leisure.  Get a good night sleep the night before you leave and then start out on your time schedule and not someone else’s schedule.

Blogging, Travelling and Working Update

I have been busy recently and didn’t have much time for traveling or blogging. I’m a full-time student who supports herself working a part-time job. My recent gig is writing tests. Writing these practice tests for students is relatively easy but answering questions people post as feedback is hard work, I recently asked to remove comments on the tests because people are asking totally simple questions.

I like this gig a lot, but it takes so much time to answer the question when you think your job is all done. So I’m thinking about earning money with a blog. Will it work? Let’s start from the beginning.
But you might ask: why I should choose to blog? Is Blogging a good start to an online career? Well, if it doesn’t work, I can always get back to my old profession, I do have my GED diploma, after all, I worked hard for 7 months studying online and attending classes (I don’t recommend classes), just choose a good online practice such as Best GED classes.
What does Blogging mean? Most of the people would say that is you have a website, you write whatever you want (legally, please), usually about your daily personal stuff and then publish them on the website. Now the website is called your blog, and you are blogging and called a blogger. Some kinds of online diaries? Well, that’s true and also a reason why they usually don’t make money with their blogs. (I used to see blogs that way too!)
So if you combine blog, travel and make money, you will have: you have a blog, you write what you like and useful to people, then you publish them. That is making money by blogging. (We can talk a lot about this topic)
Let’s see some pros and cons:
Advantages:
1.Freely express your ideas: what can be better than talking about things you like and earn money from that.
2.Get more friends: absolutely. If people don’t like you and your blog…. Ok, you still have your family and friends to read your posts.

American Cities – Great Weekend Escapes

BOSTON
Boston calls itself “America’s Walking City” and there has never been a better time to hoof it: The “Big Dig” is piling up dirt and traffic while workers move the city’s expressways underground.

So hike the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile tour of historic sites. The Trail starts at Boston Common (America’s oldest public park), passes the Old State House, Faneuil Hall (site of famous Yankee oration), and Paul Revere’s house before ending at the Bunker Hill Monument and Museum.
After a long day, retire to the enchanted Jewel of Newbury (254 Newbury St.; 617-536-5523; doubles: $275 and up), an eight-room, four-floor bed and breakfast known for its attentive service and rooftop garden. Just down the street is Boston’s best day spa, Bella Sante: the Spa on Newbury (38 Newbury St., 2nd Floor; 617-424-9930).
If the weather discourages strolling, visit Harvard University’s famed Fogg Art Museum (617-496-8576; $5) or Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts (465 Huntington Ave.; 617-267-9300; $12). Take the Red Line T across the river to stroll around Harvard Square.
