We had agreed to meet Bri, Ben, and the boys Dorion and Kai there for breakfast. It was a few minutes after 8 and how lucky we were to find that we were the only ones there. Had the whole place to ourselves for breakfast. Now that is my kind of happening. Love it when there are no masses of yakky-doodle people around. After breakfast on the second morning, we set off on a hike into the nearby mountains. Fog hung low, but as we neared the lookout point, sunlight started to peek from behind the clouds. We reached a clearing in the thick trees from which we could overlook the winding river in the valley below.
Florida is a peninsula that is bounded by the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and the Atlantic Ocean on the other.

Central Park is located in the centre of the Island of Manhattan and is open to the public. One of the must-see sights in New York, Central Park is nearly 3.5km² in size. If you find cheap flights to New York, this is somewhere you have to visit.
The original plan for New York City did not have plans for specific green space, except for cemeteries. Growth of the city forced planning to occur.
Central Park has a number of artificially created lakes and ponds. There are miles of walking and jogging tracks and bridle paths that are still used. For wheeled exercise, there are six miles of special “drives” for any sport activity on wheels. The park boasts two ice skating rinks, the most popular attractions in the winter. One of those rinks becomes a swimming pool in the last two months of summer each year.
There are several outdoor locations for theatre, concerts and music festivals. Many renowned entertainers have performed within the boundaries of Central Park. There are many well-known garden areas, some donated by wealthy patrons.
One of the most loved places in all of Central Park is the Bethesda Terrace. Bethesda is an outdoor … Read more
But what happens when you toss in airline travel with your dog? In today’s mobile society it is very common for thousands of people each day, to be traveling with their dog. Some dogs have to go to a kennel or to the house of a friend, but other lucky dogs get to travel with their owners on the airplane. If your favorite traveler’s e-book reader doesn’t have the new Kindle Paperwhite backlit technology or if he or she doesn’t own a great tablet yet, the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader or Kindle Fire HDX tablet would make the perfect gift. I purchased a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader just before my most recent trip abroad and loved being able to unwind with a wide selection of books that I could carry around in my purse!
When we flew with our dog Angus to the Phil. we have given him a little food and water a few hours before going to the airport which was 2 hours drive. Then we let him peed and made his big business before checking in. It was adviced by our vet not to sedate him so that he could control himself in case he had to pee or … Read more
We had agreed to meet Bri, Ben, and the boys Dorion and Kai there for breakfast. It was a few minutes after 8 and how lucky we were to find that we were the only ones there. Had the whole place to ourselves for breakfast. Now that is my kind of happening. Love it when there are no masses of yakky-doodle people around. Finding a perfect balance is difficult. I am still working on it, but I’ve learned a lot through trial and error. Nice places to visit. I do love the more remote places more instead of the resorts. Would love to do some island hopping in the near future. Seen some pictures of my friends and still some very pristine places.

Unfortunately travel insurance doesn’t qualify for a meerkat toy, but you can take a friend to the cinema with 2 for 1 tickets for a whole year with MEERKAT MOVIES. Go to your account to claim your reward. As the sun sets there are some good views and I have an open window. This is great, but in my haste to snap something interesting I nearly lose my camera out the window. Schoolboy stuff, get a grip Woodward. It’s an odd combination of open windows but overhead electric power, so from time to time I hear frazzling sounds and the smell the incineration of large insects or small birds. I settle down by the window and the day changes to night as the sun sets. I’m joined by two local lads who I can only guess are heading out for a Saturday night somewhere more exciting than Gorna Orjahovica. They are an odd couple. One is dressed ready for the full disco experience, right down to a diamond earring, the other has a strange emo haircut making his ears stick out through his hair at an odd angle. I’d like to know how they get on, but of course will … Read more
There is an ongoing PBS TV series (also several books and also a website) called “Closer To Truth”. It is hosted by neuroscientist Robert Lawrence Kuhn. He’s featured in one-on-one interviews and panel discussions with the cream of the cream of today’s cosmologists, physicists, philosophers, theologians, psychologists, etc. on all of the Big Questions surrounding a trilogy of broad topics – Cosmos; Consciousness; God. The trilogy collectively dealt with reality, space and time, mind and consciousness, aliens, theology and on and on and on. Here are a few of my comments on one of the general topics covered – Is time travel possible?
# Is time travel possible? Actually I personally don’t believe time exists. Change exists, and time is just our measurement of rate of change. IMHO time is just a concept. Time is a mental construct that helps us come to terms with change. Some cosmologists say that time was created at the Big Bang, as if time were a thing with substance and structure, but I challenge them to actually create some time in front of their peers or maybe a TV audience or at least produce a theoretical equation or two that would create time.

Many of us wish to travel the world whether it be to places near and familiar or places way from home and much more exotic. The thought of plane tickets, hotel accommodations and food is daunting but rest assure that there are many ways to travel this beautiful world of ours on a budget and even ways to travel while making money. Wherever your destination (or destinations) may be there are many tricks of the trade that make being a world wanderer a feasible and budget friendly a reality.
While you can still travel on a budget, (we will discuss that in the next section) some travelers prefer to travel while still making an income. Many hopeful travelers rule out the idea of working to travel and working abroad because of a potential language barrier but in most cases that is not the correct scenario. There are plenty of work opportunities where speaking English will actually benefit you and will give you the extra income necessary to explore the world.

Why do we need to travel? Why it is getting increasingly important that we, once in a while, change our environment and travel outside our country? Why it is sometimes a necessity for our emotional health to travel?
Travel’s importance is underestimated by many people. Travel is not only fun, entertaining and enjoyable. With our current lifestyles and work conditions, travel has become more than an option. It is more than just having fun. As Augustine of Hippo said ” The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. During travel you are able to do things you usually don’t do. When travelling, you go outdoor and be away from computers, and TVs and you are likely to be mixing with different people and cultures. People travel for different reasons. Some travel for fun and to have a good time. Others travel as a hobby. Travel can be an escape away from the hectic pace of life in big cities. Some travel just to change and move, as Robert Louis Stevenson said “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake”. Some people like to learn from different cultures, … Read more
Doing this will assure safety, protect against insect and pest infestations, avoid spillage and provide easy access. Ask for information from your travel agency regarding which airlines accept dogs as cargo or excess luggage. Always take care with the products you use for eliminating bugs and pests because you definitely do not want to be feeding any toxins to your family! Check you can get proper travel insurance and do shop around and make sure you are well covered. It is important you take the proper insurance for your needs.
Meats can be served at any meal depending on how you choose to cook them. They are also great as leftovers and can even be used as snacks along with crackers. This I consider a blessing, at least for people who are not very good in navigating. I also purchased two dog beds to put inside it with blankets, food and water – they were so tiny in the beginning that it must’ve felt like living in a mansion to them.
