Planning that far ahead is very smart. It gives you time to really plan what you want to do and come up with a reasonable budget, so you aren’t having to live off granola bars on Day 3 or miss out on doing things because you don’t have enough money to eat and participate in activities. It was very confusing while we were trying to figure out what were the correct requirements because both Croatia and Philippines were giving different answers. Its best to just call BAI-Quarantine unit and explain the situation they would be the right governing body to ask, and since we wanted the cat to be brought to Philippines we just trusted whatever they said.
Sounds great. Thanks for sharing these tips. I am not sure I could do this full time. One year sounds about right to me. I am glad you explained about the mail. I have often wondered how a person that wanted to travel cross country for a year or 2 would be able to get their mail.

Doing this will assure safety, protect against insect and pest infestations, avoid spillage and provide easy access. Will you return? Whichever state you choose, you need to consider how often you will be returning. Will you develop some community ties life social organizations, church, charity work? Will you get medical care, financial and legal services there? These are all things that will be looked at if there is a legal question of your residency.
I ran across this story at the fine website called Ghost Theory and the author there was simply relating a `story from a book’ which had NO materials in any manner showing the story was ANYTHING other than fiction from an extremely good fiction writer at the time of anomalous ideas (Colin Wilson). Nonetheless, the story is the kind of great fantasy – the idea that there might be an `alternative history’ – in this case perhaps demonstrating that the Nazi’s had won World War Two.
Town and city parks and fairgrounds are also places to check out in your search for inexpensive camping options. They are sometimes harder to find, though we’ve found that city and state information centers have a wealth of useful camping … Read more

Our bus first of all has to negotiate crossing the massive queue of lorries waiting to get into Bulgaria. There are miles and miles of them. Quite incredible. Once this is done we limp along the toll road in a top gear that doesn’t quite sound right. My plan has been to stay awake until getting on the bus then catch some sleep for the 4-5 hour run into Istanbul. In reality sleep isn’t possible on the bus. It’s hotter than a sauna, my seat won’t recline. The metal part of the heater by my feet is so hot that it burns or melts anything it comes into contact with. The hours pass slowly, but eventually I realise we are much closer to the centre of Istanbul than I had thought. It’s a fantastic dawn over th Bosphorus and I tag along with the Finnish guy who shows me how to use the metro (not built when I was last here) and avoid the usual station taxi scam.

I have been an RV enthusiast for more than 50 years, and during that time have seen that my fellow recreational vehicle owners are paying far too much for parts and labor when their coaches need repairs and upgrades. Very interesting hub and thank you for all the great travel tips and sites to visit. Enter your 10-digit mobile number when prompted by the International Travel Hotline. Hi Nicki, I checked the photo at the top and it seems to be working from my end-don’t know why it seems broken at your end. But thanks for the heads up; I’ll keep an eye on it.
He talks in great detail about the fact that there are so few protections for new owners from manufacturers and sellers that if things go sideways, the consumer can lose huge amounts of money. I suggest purchasing two sets (they come in packages of three) because sometimes you need to use more than one per shelf for added security.

Whether you’re headed just for a short trip by car, flying to a different state, or traveling oversees, this will help pack all the essentials you might need and not to forget things. We arrived in Bucharest Nord on time and I said goodbye to our excellent steward and also to the well travelled passenger in the next compartment, who by chance was English. My mission now was twofold. Firstly, not to get scammed (me, get scammed in a Romanian railway station?) and secondly, to see if I could get some onward tickets to take me to Istanbul, the next leg of my Orient Express journey. I’m pleased to say that I succeeded on both counts.
You are absolutely correct, Tai, individuals need to consider the various threats they face given the environments they will be entering. As I have said in a different comment, the US on its worst day may still be better in this regard than some other country on its best.
Our weekend started Friday night at one in the morning when we boarded a night train bound for Seoul. We got a few hours of shut-eye before arriving just after 4 a.m. and hung out … Read more
Kyrimai..We loved this place…amazing location right on the water, lovely pool, decor, food…and in proximity to many beaches. I read travel guides as I was traveling—both online and in books—and usually knew a handful of things I wanted to see or do once I arrived in a new city. But I never planned out any sort of itinerary in advance—it was much more fun, and much more rewarding, to feel my way around. Just about anyplace you stay—from a cheap hostel to a fancy hotel—will have some folks who can give you great tips about the area that no travel guide can match.
This tip is especially useful if you’ll be backpacking—because you have to carry all that stuff on your back! Naturally, you need to dress for the weather conditions in the region(s) where you’ll be traveling. You really need a lot less than you probably think—two pairs of pants, a mix of long- and short-sleeved shirts (five or six, max), one pair of shoes/boots (in addition to the ones you’ll be wearing), and if you’ll be traveling in warm weather, two pairs of shorts and a swimsuit. This doesn’t sound like much for a long trip, but keep … Read more
I’ve always known that my country, the Philippines, is a piece of paradise on earth. But it was only a few years ago when I started working and earning my own money that I realized that my home country is truly unlike any other place. The more I traveled, the more I discovered the beauty of the Philippines. Where? There are 10 Brazilian consulates in the US. Each issues visas to citizens from certain states. For example, if you live in Florida, you have to apply with the consulate in Miami. If you are in Houston and want to apply there, you will not be able to, because the consulate in Houston does not have jurisdiction over residents for Miami. See the list of consulates below in this article.
Not everything needs to be practical and cheap. Some things do enhance a travel experience and this noise cancelling headphone is a luxury. But if you can afford it, don’t hesitate. You will make your man happy as he can use this all the time if he is to travel constantly.
