Good tips for travel #4


Moving around on your own - good for you in many ways - and others

When you've reached your destination you want to experience. Whether it's the books you're carrying or the itenerary over sites you want to visit. If you move around without the help of engines, e.g. walk or ride a bike rather than choosing taxis or rental cars, you get to see more and you buid up health.

You are also more likely to discover the real and hidden pearls of the world while walking/biking/hiking.

Anthropologists see how walking get you to experience the country, people and places more as they are, and less as they are presented. It also raises the possibility of you adding to the local community instead of some multinational coorporation draining the local economy. If you choose to move around on your own,... Show more...

Think through your sun protection

If you're running away to a nother climate, something very well understood by all, think through what you need in sun protection. Mountains and water naturally amplify the effect of sunrays manyfold.

Anywhere clothes or shade is by far the best protection. The marine ecosystem doesn't have to deal with residues and your body doesn't have to deal with possible damaging substances. Hats may also be a very good (and very good looking) substitute.

If you really want sunscreen, try a biodegradable version. We don't give you an exhaustive list but tips to get you started. Have a look:

Good tips for green travels #2


If you wanna stay somewhere at all and want to be nice to your wallet, couchsurfing is the thing.

Many may feel we live in insecure times. And many feel Air-BnB is the thing to travel more green and economic. It may be, but not without controversy. Air-BnB is not supporting the local economy or democracy as much as couchsurfing is. Sharing for free, discovering the local ways, people and life creates bonds stronger than trails of money.* Couchsurfing doesn't require any extra building or people to move while othersare using the service. That's energy saving beyond any other type of accomodation.

It works simply by you loan a couch, bed, beds, room, rooms or apartment by other human beings. And when you have the opportunity, you lend out what you yourself have the capacity to. You set the criterias, and you serach among the criteria of others. Our experiences have been very good and none bad. Especially if you gather over food-cooking or... Show more...

On our second drive through Cades Cove it decided to rain. Just before the rain began we stopped to look around one of the homesteads that was built in this area.

Even though the hike to the summit of Clingman's Dome is paved and is only a half mile distant it is inclined at about a 13% grade. That made it fairly difficult for my wife who had a knee replacement last Wednesday.

08-06-2018 Our first day in the Smoky Mountains began at Clingman's Dome, which is the highest spot in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at 6643 feet above sea level. This picture was taken while on the way down from Clingman's Dome.

On our first pass through Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains we were able to view bears. This one was about 40 feet up a tree.

This creek was on the Roaring Fork Motor Trail in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The Smokys are a wonderful place to visit. I need to go back.

“I'm basically giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL”


Now that PEP 572 is done, I don't ever want to have to fight so hard for a PEP and find that so many people despise my decisions. I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I'll…

After visiting Denali National Park & Preserve we boarded a Princess train to Whittier, Alaska so we could then board the Island Princess and commence our 7 day cruise through the Inside Passage.

Has anyone here had any experience visiting the Smokey Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee? My wife and I are possibly going there this coming August. I'm looking for recommendations on places to stay.

Yay! my #exams are over!


And I rescheduled my flight back home... so now instead of flying back to #Fiji on the 23rd, I'll be flying back tomorrow (and arriving on Monday)

I'm not gonna be out of sight for long, but meeting a few people might be awkward...

Chewing gum, at the Grand Canyon, 1969

Apparently I liked chewing gum as a kid. Also, button up shirts and neckties in the blazing heat.

GARY NORTH'S TIP OF THE WEEK


This year, 50% of Americans say they have no vacation plans. Of these, 50% say
they can't afford it.

https://www.garynorth.com/snip/1324.htm

Wait until the recession hits!

I have to post four articles a day, six days a week, 52 weeks a year.

Summer vacation? Been there. Done that. Don't remember much.

My kids are grown. They get to take vacations with their kids. I hope they take
lots of pictures. I will enjoy the pictures. No muss. No fuss. No traffic.

My wife will take a two-week vacation in California this summer to visit my
son's family and her siblings. I will stay home. It's quiet.

I spend most of my life in my basement office. It's always quiet.

I like quiet.

What about you? Should you take a vacation or pay down debt?
That's what debt does to people. It restricts their future range of choices.

It's cheaper to take the kids to Six Flags or other amusement activities
close to home than... Show more...

On our second full day in Alaska; August 8, 2017. It rained the previous night and in the morning the clouds receded enough to reveal the top of Denali.
