De-Stress Your Next Vacay




It’s not too late to book a trip for this summer, explore a new belief and see an exciting fresh part of the world. Perhaps, you’ll journey to Hawaii and swim with dolphins in aqua blue seas. Or, maybe you’ll journey somewhere far more adventurous like Mount Everest! Did you know that you can actually skydive close to the incredible mountain range? It’s true, they’ll drop you out the plane at fifteen thousand feet.

It all sounds wonderful and thrilling, doesn’t it? In fact, it sounds so fantastic you’d be forgiven for forgetting all about the stresses that come with booking a new holiday. You have to get your tickets, ensure you have the right documents to travel and that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. So, let’s look at some of the ways you can make life a lot easier and simpler when arranging your holiday.


Book Well In Advance


If you’re planning on travelling this year, booking in advance might not be an option for you. Generally speaking though booking in advance is a smart move. You’ll be able to get plane tickets at lower prices. And, the best part is that if the prices drop in between the time you booked your tickets you can still access the better deal! To do this, you’ll need to ring up the airline directly, but most do allow it. Particularly, if the flight in question was booked a year ahead.

If you are planning on travelling this year, you might still be able to get a great price. There are lots of sites that offer great last minute deals like the aptly titled lastminute.com. If you use one of these, you might just find a flight to Milan for less than a hundred!


Get Approved Online


Online approval is making things so much easier for passengers. For instance, if you’re travelling to America you can use the official Esta website which is great. It takes ten minutes to fill in a form, and most people gain approval to travel in just three days. However, you will have to check that you’re from a country that supports the scheme.

America aren’t the only country that offers this possibility either. Great Britain and certain countries in Europe have a similar scheme. So, make sure you do check this out because you might find that you’re adding unnecessary stress to your trip by going through long waiting times to get approval to travel.


Upgrade To First Class


Finally, many people find that travelling is stressful because of the actual journey. That’s totally understandable, but it’s a lot easier in first class. Did you know there are usually people who don’t show up for first class and their tickets are sold off at discounted prices? It’s first to come first serve so make sure you’re listening out for any announcements while you’re waiting for your flight.

We hope this helps you cut the stress out your next vacation and allows you to focus on great adventures that lie ahead.

Beach resort in Sariaya, Quezon

Sometimes there are travels which are unplanned which will push through when time and resources connives with what the majority want.  Just like this one long weekend when we went to a beach resort in Sariaya, Quezon, it was an unplanned trip to the beach with the family, it just emanated when one of my daughter simply would like to go for a swim in our clubhouse but her sister want to go out of town on a weekend and suddenly I want to go to the beach.   Finally we ended our conversation in going to a beach resort within a short proximity from Metro Manila.  Our choices were Batangas, Olongapo and Quezon, but the latter won the vote because we haven’t been to any beaches in Quezon.   

Summer Outing at a resort in Morong, Bataan

Last Saturday I was able to bring with me my family on our company outing in a beach resort in Morong, Bataan.  Although it was not our first time to go to Morong, Bataan, we’re still excited because we will be exploring a different resort.  Any place we haven’t explored yet always excites us.
I was the one who was tasked in our company to facilitate the outing wherein the time frame was short to be able to scout different resorts.  Booking a resort for a company outing during March is already difficult as most are already fully booked for the whole summer.  With the limited time that I had, I did not think of other location, but Morong Bataan because of its distance, not so crowded beaches, affordability, and availability of the resort to accommodate a big group.
I searched on the internet, first on Google, then on travel sites like Agoda, and Hotel Travel, and then on Facebook. I called up several beach resorts, which have nice reviews, but some were either too expensive or fully book…

One day wander in Lucban Quezon

After in hiatus for several months on the road I finally had this opportunity again to hit the road last February 21.  It was officially our first road travel this year after I had my C-section operation last December so I have to confine myself at home most of the time to recuperate.  But of course I was not 100% at home because confinement will kill me to death.. ha ha! It would already be a pleasure for me if I go walking the streets around the neighborhood to grasp fresh air, but once in a while I’m still longing for nature, clear skies, and travelling the road.


We planned a day tour out of town which could be easily reached by car where we have not explored yet.  There are many to choose from actually, either North or South.  But we have decided to go to Lucban, Quezon to visit “Kamay ni Hesus Shrine” while the weather is still cold, because in summer it would be too hot and humid as you have to ascend the long stretch of steps to get to the top.  Kamay ni Hesus is a pilgrimage si…
