Benefits Of RVing

Whether you plan on traveling alone or with someone, there are great things to know about Traveling In An RV, otherwise known as RVing. No matter how far you go from your home, there are always places to stop and see, in your own home on wheels.

While RVing, there are great opportunities to meet new people and even make lifetime friends at places you camp, stop for site-seeing, and/or rest. There are a lot more people traveling In RVs nowadays than one may think. Instead of getting a hotel room and staying in one place, the RV allows you to be on the go and enjoy yourself for days, weeks, and even months at a time.

You don’t have to worry about packing up everytime you want to go somewhere new; if you left some of your belongings behind; or if the hotel room is even clean. Usually the more people you have that stay in a hotel room, the more money it will cost, but if you have an RV, you can save a lot of money on the RV site alone.

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.

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.

Holiday in Hawaii

If you can’t get away, let cooking bring the islands to you
I USED TO SAY I didn’t need to go to Hawaii. “I grew up in Florida,” I would tell my wife. “If I want to go somewhere warm, I can go there and see my family, too.” But I had no idea what I was missing. Hawaii is more than someplace warm. It’s a way of life. And now, like any number of northwesterners, I have heard the siren song of the islands and I’m hooked for life.

It started with a culinary research trip. As the new consulting chef for Canlis I was supposed to go there and find out all I could about Hawaiian food. But from the moment I stepped off the plane and inhaled the flowery tropical air, even inside the airport with its walkways open to the tradewinds, I was spellbound.
In between the meals, I swam at Waikiki, hiked to Sacred Falls and did everything I could to work off some of the calories packed into the Okinawan sweet potatoes and the rich coconut custard called haupia. We walked up the Manoa Valley and body-surfed at Waimea Bay, and all the while, we were practicing Hawaiian words like ono (delicious), wikiwiki (quick) and hummahummanukunuku apua’a (a fish). Just saying words like that made me happy.
One of the culinary high points of the trip was spending a couple of days behind the line in the kitchen of Alan Wong. In 1998, Wong would win the James Beard Award for Best chef of the Northwest. (The James Beard Foundation always lumps Hawaii in with the Northwest).
