Family summer beach trip

The summers are here, and the smells of seasons cannot be ignored. Where on the one hand the salty sea breeze beckons the traveler with relaxation and recreation, on the contrary, even though you would like a family beach trip, there has got to be a lot of planning done.

The latter can be anything but entertaining since there is so much to chalk out. Today we would like to help ease that planning on those weary shoulders; a holiday is for fun, not for you to make the mind run. Hence please read on and be well-informed for the same.

Beach shacks and resorts

Getting into one of the beach huts or resorts, a cheap and affordable one either on the beach or five minutes from it and which wouldn’t make you sweat while searching for the right one is a challenge. This is why we ask you to book early to avoid such disappointments; everyone wants to be on the beach you see. Now there are fully serviced resorts, with all-inclusive tariffs to check with. Review your budget and speak with the service providers online for the same. However, you can also save and not rip the pockets apart, think about budget rooms or shacks by the beach.

The latter may not be high end or very luxurious, you may have to do your laundry and cooking, but the ocean views and the strong breeze drives away your tiredness. Get the kids to snuggle in early at night, pour yourself a nice glass of red wine and relax with your beau watching the night sky studded with stars, as the ocean sings.

Safety comes first

Every year we heard of so many deaths and accidents on the beach, by the beach shores and washed up dead victims, don’t be a statistic. When traveling to the beach with pets and kids, especially the latter because your dog would follow you where you go, educate the young ones on safety rules and be strict about it. Not more than an arm’s length should Judy, and Jack is away from you, be an adult and keep an eye on them always.

Summer Beach Vacation

Health and skin

Skin cancer with the harsh UV rays of the sun too can be avoided, use sunblock in generous amounts. While you and the kids splash around and play, remember to relax under a large beach umbrella and then sip your refreshing drinks and beer. Every fifteen minutes a break taken from the splashing and sunbathing would be recommended.

If you or someone around does suffer from bug bites, bruises and bumps, have your first aid kit ready.

Spice it up

The adage says variety is the spice of life, and that’s what you should do on this trip. Yes, we love to relax and laze around on the beach, but kids want to run around and spend all their time doing everything they please. You don’t have to ONLY hang around at the beach, take the kids to the neighboring towns. Show your children the zoos, aquariums, theme parks, gardens along the beach and more, ask your service providers for mid-day or late evening activities. Grown up’s can enjoy kayaking trails, educative adventures or even late night beach parties too.

Budget Beach Resorts

Yes, Judy and Jack would ask you to pack everything for their needs; kids can be very demanding that way. They would ask you to bring along the shovel, pails, sand buckets, while you look at the bag and wonder where would be the space to fit it all. Be understanding, and ask hubby dearest to carry another bag with essential items, which should include;

  • Towels
  • Napkins
  • Medicines
  • Food for the road
  • Water for the road
  • Beverages for the road and more
  • Author Bio

How To Plan A Romantic Getaway

Romantic Getaway

If you’re currently loved up and looking to get away for the summer – why not try a romantic holiday? There are thousands of hotels and resorts worldwide that specialize exclusively in providing for couples, and the vast majority of them do not allow children. They’re quiet, peaceful and intensely romantic. This is the kind of holiday where you can be as ‘noisy’ as you like and nobody will mind – within reason. If you want two person bathtubs, roaring fireplaces and king size duvets – it’s got to be a couples getaway. Fortunately, it’s easy to organize a romantic trip. Here’s how you can plan for the most romantic holiday of your life.

Keep It Simple

If your main aim is romance, you’re going to want to keep things relatively quiet. Pick a resort or a hotel with lots of activities and attractions, but avoid tourist traps and locations with raucous nightlife. Go for small, intimate bars and candlelit restaurants. If you are only interested in each other, the destination won’t matter too much. It just has to be beautiful, relaxing and super friendly

Talk About It

This isn’t going to work if your romantic getaway has been planned as a surprise for your other half, but if it hasn’t – it can be a good idea to talk about things first. You don’t have to pick apart the whole trip, just have a little discussion about what you both want to get out of it. Are you both content to stay in the hotel spending time alone with each other, or do you want to balance romance with exploration? You don’t want to jet off somewhere expecting a week of isolation, only to find out that your partner wants to play tourist.

Be Spontaneous

Try not to plan every aspect of your getaway – leave room for spontaneous activities and trips. Unexpected memories are the very best kind, and they’ll be the ones that make your holiday, says Ask Men journalist Sarah Stefanson. If your other half wants to go on a boat trip, indulge them. If one night you fancy staying in a beach tent beneath the stars, don’t worry about the logistics – just do it. You can’t plan romance so just let what’s going to happen, happen naturally.

Be Spontaneous

Ask For Special Treatment

When booking your hotel, don’t be afraid to ask about their unique features, says About.com journalist Susan Breslow Sardone. Many hotels have romantic two person bathtubs or showers, flower and champagne delivery services, individual massage sessions and private Jacuzzis. If you don’t ask, you’ll never know. You might have to pay a little extra, but it’ll be worth it just to see the smile on your partner’s face when you lead them to a private Jacuzzi room.

Special Treatment

Utilize Your Destination

If you’re staying by the coast – why not find a secluded beach and take an evening stroll, followed by a sunset picnic? If you’re in the city, find a beautiful park and get your partner for a leisurely walk or a boat trip on the lake. Absolutely anything can be made romantic. It’s not the environment that creates the romance – it’s you. If you both enjoy hiking or mountain climbing, incorporate it into your trip. You could climb a beautiful peak and drink a glass of champagne at the summit. The best romantic getaways are those that allow both partners to do what it is they love. Doing it together is what makes it super special.

How Travel Can Be Accessible to All

Destinations Wisely

“The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only one page.”

Countless people dream of going abroad and seeing the world, yet never will. Between money, time, danger, and discomfort; the obstacles can seem insurmountable. Airline tickets are astronomically expensive, hotels can cost a small fortune, and the expense of eating away from home adds up fast.

While we all too often believe that traveling is an overwhelmingly expensive proposition, the reality is that savvy travelers often spend less while on the road than they do at home. For those who know how to get around on a budget, seeing the world is quite affordable.

Chose Your Destinations Wisely

Choose your destinations wisely

Your chosen destination can play a huge part in your budget. Some cities in the world are tremendously expensive than others. Hanoi in Vietnam was recently voted the cheapest city to in the world for two for a one-night stay in a four-star hotel, cocktails, a two-course meal with a bottle of wine, and taxi transportation in a survey by TripAdvisor.

Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos are popular destinations for backpackers due to their affordable living costs, the general sense of safety and of course spectacular beaches and scenery. Traveling to these areas allows you to see and experience more of the world than you would if you opted to spend time in London, Las Vegas or New York where your budget will not last long. Therefore research potential destinations; get off the beaten track and explore undiscovered parts of the world where your budget will continue, and you will experience a real sense of culture and adventure.

Spend More Time and Less Money

Traveling isn’t necessarily expensive, but traveling fast is. When you rush from place to place, you never have the opportunity to find the best prices, get off the overpriced tourist path, or discover how the locals stretch their budgets. Bargaining is impossible unless you first have an idea of where things are and what they cost. Plus, the most expensive part of travel is the physical act of moving: buses, planes, trains, taxis, and cars. So if you want to go cheaply, commit yourself to going slowly. You’ll learn more, spend less, and see things you otherwise would have missed.

Forgot the ‘Holiday Mentality.’

When traveling on a budget, forget the idea that you ought to pamper yourself. Be satisfied with the simple joys of travel. Forgo expensive luxuries, decadent meals, and luxury accommodation. Find satisfaction in the places themselves, rather than in objects you can buy to fill them. If you are willing to sacrifice luxury, you can save a tremendous amount of money and spend more time in the places you love and experience the good lifestyle on offer and mix with local people.

Go Local

Eat local and avoid overpriced accommodation that caters to tourists. The whole reason to see the world is to absorb the culture and way of life, by stepping away from the arranged tourist events; you will enjoy local culture at its best and learn more.

Holiday Mentality

Be Social

Meet people, ask questions, and don’t be shy. No matter how often you travel, every destination has a steep learning curve. As a foreigner, there is a lot you don’t know. So you can learn a tremendous amount by simply being social, meeting fellow travelers and local people. Social skills are an invaluable resource for every traveler on a budget. Many residents will be willing to help you and be hospitable as long as you respect their culture. Simply being open and showing your interest in local life can open the door to some amazing experiences.

The fact remains: if you can afford the cost of getting there, you can afford the cost of being there. Of course, it will mean adjusting to a different lifestyle, defined by various amenities, resources, and ideas of comfort. But that, after all, is why you wanted to travel in the first place—to expand your boundaries, experience new ways of life, and immerse yourself in exciting new cultural environments. Traveling can be expensive, but you can also find the means to make it fit within your budget should you desire to see the world.
