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.

Family staycation in Canyon Woods and food tripping in Tagaytay

At long last! Our vacation pushed through which was postponed for several times due to bad weather caused by typhoons the previous months and followed by my kids’ first trimester exams last month so it took us 4 months since we purchased the vacation package from an online website store.  It was actually a 2 days stay in Canyon Woods located in Laurel, Batangas.  We got it at 50% off which was originally priced at Php6,000.00 but it can only be used on regular days so my husband and I had to leave for work as well as my kids from their school. 

3 days Ilocos tour – Vigan, Paoay, Burgos and Pagudpud

This is the memorable vacation I had this year, because not only I have with me my family, but together with my friends with their families also.  This trip has been long been planned since last quarter of last year that every time we have a get together this Ilocos trip has been brought over our discussions as our next itinerary until we were able to finalize the date when everyone can join, and so the set date was last February 22 to February 25.

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…
