Muiz @ Perhentian (Photo credit: Anan Amri) As I write this, I’m flying. It’s an incredible concept: to be suspended in the air, moving at two hundred miles an hour — while I read a magazine. Amazing, isn’t it? I woke up at three a.m. this morning. Long before the sun rose, thirty people loaded up three conversion vans and drove two hours to the San Juan airport. Our trip was finished. It was time to go home. But we were changed. As I sit, waiting for the flight attendant to bring my ginger ale, I’m left wondering why I travel at all. The other night, I was reminded why I do it — why I believe this discipline of travel is worth all the hassle. I was leading a missions trip in Puerto Rico. After a day of work, as we were driving back to the church where we were staying, one o
Seperti yang saya janji saya akan cerita pengalaman saya selama 10 hari di atas KLD Tunas Samudera. Tetapi saya akan ceritakan .....10 perkara yang perlu anda tentang program KLD Tunas Samudera 10 perkara yang perlu anda tentang program KLD Tunas Samudera 1. Walaupun semua pergi di sahkan sihat oleh doktor berdasarkan borang 'Medical Checkup' , tp bila di atas kapal mcm2 penyakit datang seperti takut , tulang belakang , apendix dll. 2. Tempat tidur (cabin) hanya muat utk 9 orang dan selebihnya tidur atas deck . Just imagine pelatih seramai 28 org. Satu cabaran bagi pelatih untuk menyesuaikan keadaan dan memastikan kabin berbau segar ;) 3. 10 hari untuk belajar semua perkara tentang kapal layar memang tak cukup. Kelas yang paling membosankan adalah pada waktu malam

The term ‘flashpacking’ has popped up in a few recent newspaper articles and has been catching on in the backpacking scene. Judging by the people I’ve met during my travels recently I would say it is well and truly on its way to becoming a full on movement. So what’s the deal then? There seems to be a couple definaitions floating around about what a flashpacker is: The term ‘flashpacking’ has popped up in a few recent newspaper articles and has been catching on in the backpacking scene.

Arranging your own vacation can be a little daunting if you’ve always placed your annual trip in the hands of a competent travel agent. Before, all you had to do was to select the country and resort, get yourself to the airport on the right date and at the right time, and the rest was taken care of for you. You were probably met at your destination airport by the tour operator’s representative who then escorted you to your resort, and, at the end of your vacation, you just needed to be ready and waiting for the return coach journey to the airport. The sense of reassurance this can give has always gone some way to help vacationers enjoy their trip: there’s never been any worry about how to get from the airport to the hotel, how to cope with a broken toilet once there, or how to buy ticket
Kids are a blessing, but travelling with them can be a big challenge if you aren’t prepared. It won’t be long before your kids start the ‘are we there yet’ and ‘I’m bored’ mantras. Kids tend to be distracted and restless easily. They constantly need something new to do – whether you are driving down to your holiday destination, or you are flying, or going on a boat, unless you are equipped with many things to keep your children occupied, it might be a stressful trip.Travelling should be fun for everyone. Besides, nothing teaches you more than travelling does. You learn essential life skills, you learn to appreciate the small things, you learn to be independent and understand different ways of different people. It needs to be a much enjoyed experience for your kids as well. Here are s
Being vegetarian has its own benefits. Talk to your vegetarian/vegan friends and they will give you an endless list of reasons why you should be vegetarian. When it comes to travelling, however, vegetarians definitely suffer in comparison. Unless you are a foodie, travelling to a new place might mean you could hate the food and have to go hungry – one of the reasons why some people find travelling stressful. Most vegetarians end up surviving on soups, fries from Mc Donald’s, ice creams and other beverages especially when they travel to countries which are big meat eaters like a lot of the East Asian countries, USA and Australia. End result – your trip isn’t half as fun as it could have been. If you have chosen to be vegetarian, it most definitely does not mean you need to starve wher
