It is well established that air travel raises the risk of potentially fatal blood clots. Did you know, however, that traveling by car, bus, boat, and train can also be risky? Anytime that you sit still for more than 1-2 hours, your blood begins to coagulate. Coagulation means clots. This risk is increased for anyone who has thrombophilia, clotting disorders, surgery, pregnancy, hormone use, and/or a history of blood clots. Once you have had a pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), you need to be extra cautious when traveling as you are at an increased risk of a second clot. As traveling is already a risk, if you have a history of clotting, you will need to be especially careful when you travel. You are absolutely correct, Tangible. Let me add a bit to what Rick has already pointed out. With 70 different resorts around the island, you can take your pick from the best (or not best, depending on your budget). It also boasts numerous marine reefs and crystal blue waters good for relaxation.
Good ideas. I would find that the noise cancelling headphones would be the best of the list for me. This one guy he has … Read more

One of my neighbours has this phobia. I have noticed it seems to be getting worse She has to really nerve herself even to drive down to the village, just a couple of minutes away. It really spoils her life, and that of her husband too. Presently they are in Hawaii for their vacation, but she was a basket case before they left! It is just the travelling that makes her so terribly anxious. … Read more
From tropical Thailand to icy Antarctica, we reveal the top five countries where travel insurance plays a big role.

Repairs are constant and can be extremely expensive, so it pays to learn about potential costs before you purchase of an RV. Wow…you’ve given a heck of a lot of great info for stuff that travel agents don’t tell you. To find the best sightseeing in New Hampshire, take scenic highways like the Kancamagus Highway or Route 123, both of which pass through beautiful mountain ranges and small towns.
Teardrop trailers are pretty cool and I even had a chance to stay in one when I was a kid. Too bad they don’t seem as popular anymore. Regarding the centralized service vs standalone, it also means that if an attacker gains control of servers, it can also activate travel mode for me and disable my secret data on … Read more
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
There is nothing that compares to the freedom of the open road, especially when following it takes you to some of the most magnificent scenery and interesting places in the United States. We are not trying to conceal the existence of data from anyone. After all, it is probably not a good idea to lie or mislead someone who has the power to make you unlock your device and apps on that device. And as you point out, we wouldn’t be able to succeed at that anyway.
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.

Do not include your original license, as a copy is sufficient. After all, … Read more
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
