Backyard Travel: Picnics, Camping & Local Sights
“We’ve caught this scene while walking on the streets of Akko, Israel. Akko is a very beautiful old city on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea in Israel. But we will write more about this in our later posts. Here we just wanted to share this unusual sight of “camel-wash” in the middle of the street.”
“It’s summer here in Ottawa (finally!) and everybody is out enjoying the nice weather.”
Kevin Giffin presents 6 Tips for Having a Great Camping Trip With Your Family posted at Summer Nanny, saying,
“With the right planning and attitude, you can have a fantastic camping trip with your family that makes for a wonderful vacation and a chance to get out and see the world.”
“These hacks can help you plan the most efficient and effective picnic, even if you don’t have an entire day to plan and pack the gear.”
Mindful Travel: Solo Travel Safety, Zen & the Travel Mindset
“Can it actually happen? Can Zen help beat travel stress, particularly in the airport security area? If so, how? And how do we get there?”
“For me, the traveling lightly philosophy isn’t just in what you pack (though that’s a good part of it), but in how you approach travel. Here are some lessons learned.”
“Traveling solo, especially in foreign countries, might be intimidating at first, but it doesn’t have to be. If you take Mindful steps to protect yourself and stay on guard you’ll soon find yourself relaxing and growing from the experience.”
“Having been writing articles focused on travel for a while (and gone on many adventures), I feel it’s my responsibility to you, my savvy reader, to tell you something that I’m sure you’ve needed to hear for a while now. That’s right, today I’d like to share with you the Top 7 reasons why you should NOT travel… ever.”
“We love to discover faraway countries but, how can we avoid an uncomfortable flight and spend the journey without overwhelm ourselves inside the plane?”
