Do you love travelling? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get paid to travel? I think this is the dream for many, who want to unshackle themselves from a 9-5 job and go and see the world. You can almost picture yourself sitting on a white sandy beach, cocktail in hand with the sun glinting on the turquoise water. If it just sounds like a far-fetched daydream, it doesn’t have to be. I would like to share with you 25 companies which pay people to write about their travels. Some of these are travel companies, and others are magazines or online publications which have a travel section and purchase from freelance writers. I have travelled to different parts of the world alone and have rarely faced problems. These are excellent tips. Voting up! Valid health certificates from the vet from the country of origin written in English. Back in 1948 my mom hailed a train heading north in Oregon, and we rode to Astoria for the day. Then Mom took us back on the train (Astoria station), and the train stopped to let us off at a dirt road crossing. What a thrill that was.

The term ‘travel agent’ is regarded by some as a part of the past, as though the idea is somewhat passé. This, of course, is the furthest thing from the truth, and nothing brings home this point more than the role of the corporate travel agent. This person/entity is pivotal in working with a very different client that needs to top-notch amenities and facilities. For businesses looking to have the upper hand in their industry, having the right corporate travel agent can make all the difference.

I could not tell you about the going back of our dog to Germany because Angus is still in the Philippines. We did not brought him back with us as we keep on going to and leaving from the Philippines. We did not want him to have stress or might get lost. He is more or less a Filipino dog now. He knows how to bark already. Thanks for … Read more

This week’s blog post comes from a Meat Counter Mom with a heavy heart. My good friend, Dr. Chris Raines was killed in a car wreck this weekend. Chris and I were friends and roomies in graduate school. Chris sent me my first-ever text message. It was about an apple-cinnamon bacon project we were going to try. Although Chris was younger than me, I looked up to him in the digital world. He was the innovator. He was tweeting before I knew that it wasn’t something that birds did. He started a meat blog long before I ever considered it. And, when I decided to enter the twenty-first century and start a blog and a Twitter, it was Chris that I consulted (via text message). It was his idea to make my blog a ‘Mommy’ blog. Adventurous visitors can jump off limestone ledges into the water below. The falls at Tat Sae blend into the jungle around them, meaning that the entire area is well shaded. For visitors, there are changing rooms, toilets, and even a simple restaurant. It’s a beautiful and relaxing place to visit for a few hours from Luang Prabang.

The question on when to actually make the voyage to the US is pretty complex and there are so many things to consider. And it really does depend on what you want to do while you’re there.

We ate well all weekend, but the clear winner of the meals was dinner Saturday night. Barbados, Cayman Islands and St. Lucia receive an average of seven inches of rain, which makes them unattractive destinations for either long-term stays or Caribbean cruises.

Although most of the teaching and learning takes place in the classrooms, there is no doubt that travelling broadens the mind and enlivens the spirit. Using baskets made of plastic for this purpose is more sanitary, and if you buy ones like those I show below, you can also easily stack and store them when not in use.

Always seem to need more than the carry on allows! It does depend how far you are travelling though. One passport-style photo. Make sure you use a professional-looking and quality 2×2 photo. Do not attempt to take your own and use … Read more
