Travel Plans and Dealing With The List

I have more than two handfuls of things to do but I can’t seem to get on with them. I know what I have to do but procrastination seems far better at the moment. Even blogging is a struggle and it always seems to happen as soon as school kicks in again.

I’ve been there a whole week, and the lazy part of me has woken up… or maybe it’s just fallen into an even deeper slumber depending on how you look at it I don’t know why! As soon as I get too busy I feel the urge to sit down and chill out for a bit when that’s the complete opposite of what I should be doing. So, in no particular order, here is what needs to be done… sharpish.

  1. I think I am doing pretty well yet I would like to hear somebody else saying that
  2. Plan my next trip … *faints at prospect*
  3. Sign up for a webinar about new techniques for writing practice tests as I my new job is developing tests for online classes (HS and GED). It’s my new job ( perfect when you like traveling as much as I do). But I try to catch a new mentor from this website but so far no luck.

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 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.

RVing As A Retiring Couple

RVing and Retirement go hand in hand for many couples! When you and your spouse hit the retiring mark in life, why not consider investing in an RV to retire in? This would give you great freedom to travel around to different places that you have always wanted to see, and you would still have the comforts of home right along with you. Plus you can decide where to go and how long to stay.

RVing has changed significantly over the years, and it seems like they get nicer and more modern every year. Prices and styles depend on how new the RV is and if it’s used or new. Most Modern RVs come with a flat-screen TV, walk-in shower, a modern kitchen, and equipment, as well as extra storage compartments underneath the RV.

They even have awnings on the outside, which can be perfect to set up lawn chairs and even a table under, for added outdoor comfort. You can even purchase a screen to close it in and keep it bug-free!  You can hook your car up to the back of the RV and take it right along if you feel like leaving the “house in the lot.” This makes it easier when you want to stop and site see without having to drive the RV around to different places.

New Orleans Voodoo Tours

Voodoo goes back all the way to Africa, but many people still associate the spiritual practices with the city of New Orleans. Voodoo was seriously exercised in this region in the 1800s, and the city still carries traces of that supernatural period. In the Big Easy, you can find quite a few walking tours to enjoy voodoo’s rich historical past and wonderful tales at various locations and at reasonable prices.

All the way from the historic French Quarter and the Treme district to the city’s stunning Garden District and directing by the mid-city Cities of the Dead (the Central Cemetery district), these voodoo tours definitely will explore seriously into the swamps and bayous of pre-historic living and investigate the haunted historical past of New Orleans together with expert native historians.

New Orleans is a very distinctive city and offers a rich Matriarchal background. Native New Orleans citizens will give a refreshing insiders opinion and a cultural preservers’ point of view about family roots that go back to the 1700s. Here are a few well-established voodoo-tours providers:

Blogging, Traveling 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.

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!)

New Orleans – Affordable Garden District Restaurants

People in New Orleans are so fascinated with food that even while having lunch, they probably will be talking about dinner.

Well, you might also say that food brings New Orleans together.

The various menus of New Orleans’s quality restaurants reveal the historical past and all the great cultures that have led to this fantastic culinary melting pot over the past three hundred years.

You won’t have any trouble in discovering French, African, Spanish, German, Italian, and Caribbean influences in the city’s signature dishes, and the last few years we have seen an increased influence from Asia and Latin America.

Holiday in Cyprus

Day 1: Travel to Cyprus

First, we chose a nice flight, booked our hotels and flew to Cyprus. We arrived at Larnaca airport (which is actually pretty new and clean) and transferred to Limassol by a rented car. Since this was our first day we went just for a nice walk after we checked in at the hotel. We had a nice dinner at the hotel and went early in bed to fill in our batteries for the next day.
