Thinking of moving into an RV? If so, there are nine basic things you need to know before you make the leap from standard living to motor home or camper living. Make new RV curtains. These carpet-like fuzzy blue curtains are just dowdy and give my emotional age a three decade boost – in the wrong direction. This is a great place to bring in some style and character. I want something long-wearing stylistically because with eight window treatments & a divider curtain, this will be a lot of work and a major expense. Choose wisely!
Delta mistakenly allowed me to fly direct from the US to the UK with my 14 lb. terrier mix in the cabin last year. Upon arrival in the UK there was quite a bit of bother, but they, eventually, let me and my dog into the country, as it was Delta’s fault for selling me the ticket (I had all relevant paperwork for my dog). However, I had to change my return flight to the US from a direct one, to one that first flew to continental Europe (in my case, Paris). I was told by UK customs that it IS permitted to enter … 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.

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

Fourth of July is one of the busiest travel times for our ferry system, with about 430,000 passengers riding during last year’s holiday weekend.

Copy of your driver’s license. This is the main document that decides which consulate you have to apply with.

Bringing your dog to the Philippines is an idea to think of very carefully and very wisely as it takes great planning and effort on how your pet survives the stress that he or she will encounter on the flight.

The more relaxed and open you are on your trip, the more benefits you’ll gain from the experience.
Though it may not look like it, the buff (made famous by Survivor) has many uses. It can be worn like a scarf in the cold, used to wipe away sweat when it’s hot, and can tame your hair like a headband. My personal favorite way to use it though, is to cover my eyes when I am in need of some shut-eye on a bus or in a hostel.
Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte is often referred to as the Boracay of the North because of its fine white sands, numerous water activities (for those who are staying at private resorts) and of course crystal blue waters. However, unlike Boracay, it … Read more
Having lived in the Western United States my whole life, I have found the example of the European traveler to be quite informative. I believe that when Europeans travel to the United States they actually see more of the country than we residents do. Time and again I have watched people who really are too ill to be traveling insist on purchasing motor homes and campers. Many were literally risking their lives to do so. Ability to compact fairly flat when not in use so it can fit into a carry-on bag, briefcase, or purse.
In the catecombs of the Via Purifico, there is an optional puzzle with teleport panels – yeah, I get lost, too. Here is a large-size Via Purifico Map I’ve made to help. Yes, travelling has become simpler and I experienced all this, when we had a recent family trip to Europe.
This is easily the most awesome, inspiring and practical book I’ve ever read – the fact that it was #1 on the New York Times best-seller list for ages says something about its uniqueness but doesn’t do it justice. The joy of taking the first breath underwater, coupled with admiring an array of fishes … Read more

Doing this will assure safety, protect against insect and pest infestations, avoid spillage and provide easy access. Bonus Point: A great agent/agency understands your company’s need to maintain privacy. When seeking the right travel agent for your company, always be sure to inquire about their policy and procedure regarding private data.

Summer for Americans is essentially June to August. Unlike Aussies, Americans don’t go by the 1st of the month rule for seasonal changes, they prefer to opt for the more accurate lunar cycle. But for argument’s sake, let’s just say that summer is June to August (ie. when it’s winter in Australia).

Use washable synthetic silk as this would even be more practical though not as classy for the evening but something you can easily put inside a small purse. Give them one for their shoes, one for underwear, and another for toiletries or gadgets. We are in Hanoi right now and I just washed my own tote yesterday ready for use another day.
DonGertzJr – Many full-time RVers choose Texas as their domicile. If you live there, or spend a lot of time there, you might be best off keeping your residency there. You’d have to go back to SD to renew your license, so it’s only a good idea if you plan to travel there every 5 years. … Read more
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. Many WalMarts, like this one in Dodge City, Kansas, allow RV’s to park overnight for free. We knew right away that we wanted to make it easier for everyone to follow this great advice. So we hunkered down and built Travel Mode. Now, all of the above is attributed to a name and real investigation supposedly Captain Hubert V. Rihm of the Missing Persons Department of NYPD.
Before you sew one end of the elastic to the other and sew the little hole shut, make sure this is the amount of gather you want at the mouth of your bag. If you want the opening to be smaller, now is the time to cut off more elastic and make that adjustment.
