Find a Cheap Flight to Your Next Adventure Spot

By May 21, 2017 Adventures, General, Home, Travel


As the weather is getting warmer and schools are near the end of the year. Most of us are planning for some adventurous summer.  As you plan your next adventure trip, although, it seems difficult but you want to stay within budget as much as possible.

There is always a lot of competition between airlines.  We are always looking to save some money here and there especially want to grab some great deals on airline tickets so we can spend more on the fun stuff. Below are a few tips to follow when you’re looking to purchase an airline ticket, book a hotel or even renting a car.

Avoid to Travel near Major Holidays

There are certain days, or time of year when the prices of airlines go higher or lower. If you’re traveling few days before New Year’s day, Christmas or Fourth of July etc. then you are most likely to face high fares. It’s a lot cheaper to travel after a major holiday.

Travel on Weekdays

Traveling during the week is cheaper than weekend. Same with the timings, flying late at night or early morning is cheaper because not everyone likes to travel late at night or early morning.

Plan Your Trip Early

Start your search as early as possible. Most airlines release tickets about 11 months in advance. But don’t book your flight that early. Keep an eye on the tickets for your destination and search at least once a week to grab the best deal.  Best time to purchase is at least 6 to 8 weeks before traveling.

Choose Budget Airlines

Fly budget airlines, you have to face a few layovers and change of planes but it will cost you a lot less and if you’re traveling for adventure you can enjoy the stay for few hours at different airports or get a pass to go out and explore the nearby attractions.

Take Advantage of Student Discounts

Some travel sites provide discounts for students or under age 26. Take advantage of that and ask for student discounts.

 Avoid Fees for Extra Luggage

Avoid over the limit luggage, most airlines charge extra if you have more luggage than allowed.

Delete Your Search History

Delete your cookies/history as some airlines save cookies and are tracking your search data, which may lead to higher prices for returning customers searching for a specific flight.

Join a frequent flyer program

It’s free to join and you’ll earn points towards cheaper fares, upgrades, and free companion tickets. Even if you don’t travel often, it doesn’t hurt to join the program and eventually add up your points especially if you’re going on a longer flight.

Search in Different Search Engines

Search in different search engines and websites to look for the lowest deals before you book your flight.

Use Different Airlines to Travel

Sometimes choosing different airlines for departure and returning on a different airline is a lot cheaper than booking a flight on the same airline both ways.

I adore surprise gifts, they are a perfect way to see a big smile on your loved ones face. If the gift is personalized it makes you feel even more special.

I wonder who came up with the idea of putting your name or initials even a special message or date on the gifts. (You can tell, it’s something I didn’t Google yet) It was an amazing thought which is very popular even today and may possibly always be.

These unique gifts are a treasure, especially the little kids love to see their pictures or names on their favorite toy or books and blankets etc.

Today I’ m going to share some of my favorite personalized or custom gifts with you that are sure to put a big smile on your loved ones. Mostly when I think of giving gifts, personalized gifts is my first choice, especially for my little nephews, my mom and dad.  I enjoy finding the perfect gift for any occasion.

Personalized Mugs

I know you’ve probably heard this one a lot but it is an awesome gift anyone would enjoy. Personalized mugs are loved by anyone. You can customize them anyway you like. Put a funny message, or write name on the mug or add photo, even put your own design at some of the custom gifts sites. It is a perfect gift for teachers, grandma and mother’s day or father’s day.

Personalized Pillows

These personalized pillows are amazing gifts for little kids. Put their name, birthday, name of their favorite toy or picture on beautiful pillows and you’ll see them wanting to take them anywhere they go.  There are many sites that have unique choices of personalizing pillows. It is not only a gift great for kids and babies but also for adults.

Personalized T-Shirts

Personalized T-shirts are very popular gifts. They have a vast variety of personalizing or customizing them your way. T-shirt gifts are enjoyed by all ages.  You can put a funny message on the t-shirt, or make it unique for the birthday girl, or birthday boy. I’m sure you’ll have many more ideas for creating these unique gifts that are perfect for grandma, grandpa, and baby, kids of any age and even mom and dad.

Personalized Jewelry

Personalized Jewelry is loved by all women and girls. A very unique way to show your love. She will adore this gift forever.  Jewelry can be personalized with initials, or name of your loved one with pictures or a unique message. A beautiful jewelry box will be a great gift too.  Any way you personalize it, she will be amazed by your gift.  You’ll also find some sites that carry customized jewelry for men .

Personalized Kids & Baby Products

There are many options for baby and kids -customization or personalized gifts.  To me they are all adorable, personalized toys, piggy banks, little baby blankets, a keepsake box, t-shirts, bibs, night light- you name it. You can buy any baby product. It will be an amazing gift.  Another wonderful gift for a kid is putting name on their backpack. Kids love to see their names on things they own. And trust me you’ll receive a lot of comments for that backpack.

These are just a few items I mentioned above. I’ll come back with more in a few days. Do let me know which one is your favorite.

20 Simple Adventures You Can Enjoy Anytime

By April 25, 2017 Adventures, General, Home, Travel


What is adventure? It not only means very unusual experience or excitement but also means taking a chance of something. So if you thought you can have an adventure only when you have plenty of time for vacation or on a weekend hanging out in the mountains, then you are missing a lot of fun.

Taking chances and doing something you have never done before or feel that you could never do is an awesome adventure. These are little things that make you feel alive and freshen you up after the busy routine.

A while back, I was bored of everyday routine work; Honestly, I didn’t have much spare time for myself even on weekends. I had to wait for certain holidays or once/twice a year vacations for some adventures. So I thought of creating a journal and writing up things I would enjoy doing in life.

Writing up these things pushed me a little more and I started doing those projects after work and enjoyed a lot. Below are some things I wrote in my journal. Maybe you would like to try a few if not all.

 

  1. Learn to be a better Photographer.
  2. Cook and eat a new recipe from a different culture once every other week
  3. Learn a language you’ve never heard of before.
  4. Adopt a pet- a dog, cat or even a small bird.
  5. Change your look-hairstyle- hair color, your dressing style.
  6. Plant some tomatoes veggies and herbs in your garden. Take care of them and watch them grow.
  7. Learn your family tree and put it together in a creative way.
  8. Plan to meet someone you haven’t met in a long time.
  9. Learn to play a game you love but are not good at-chess, mahjong etc.
  10. Take a walk in the rain.
  11. Learn to paint landscapes or anything you like.
  12. Find things you haven’t used in a while and sell them on eBay or craigslist. Start from the lowest price and see how much it sells for.
  13. Keep your internet off for a few days and see what difference it makes to your life. Note down all the different things you did in your journal.
  14. Eat something you never liked and thought it was nasty.
  15. Make up a song and sing in front of your friends.
  16. Write a biography. Everything you remember from your childhood.
  17. Go camping in your backyard.
  18. Ride a bike everywhere you go for a day or two.
  19. Plan a surprise birthday party for someone you love in a unique way.
  20. Spend time with an elder person and listen to their life stories -put a smile on their face.

Natural Remedies for Weight loss that Work

By April 24, 2017 Food, General, Health & Beauty, Home

Over weight problem? Trying to lose weight but nothing works or you can’t stay on track for long?

Below are some natural remedies that will help you in losing weight. The good thing is that you won’t have to starve yourself. The secret is to watch your diet even after you’ve lost weight.

What we usually do is get over excited after losing some weight and stop worrying about what we’re consuming again.

I’ve seen people especially women starving themselves when they start dieting. That is not the right way and that’s the reason you can’t stick to the diet for long. You have to eat to lose weight but only the right things.

Before you start any diet take a few days to answer these questions:

  1. Why are you overweight?
  2. What foods make you gain weight-carbs or proteins?
  3. Do you eat healthy and natural foods?
  4. What are the things you eat that you know you should avoid?
  5. Can you avoid or limit the unhealthy foods you consume if you go on a diet?
  6. Do you move a lot or exercise?

It’s important to know answers to the above questions if you want to get some results.

Now let’s look at some of the remedies that I or some of my family members have t

  • You’ve probably heard this lot to drink lemon water in the morning, it actually works. Add 2 tablespoon lemon and 1 teaspoon honey in an 8 oz glass of warm water and drink before breakfast.
  • Eat ½ teaspoon cumin powder mixed with ½ cup plain Yogurt empty stomach. A study showed this is a very effective way to lose weight.
  • Green tea is one of the best metabolism boosters. Drink 2-3 cups a day.
  • Crush a clove of garlic and mix with 1 tsp honey. Eat this mixture a few times in a week.
  • If carbs make you fat. Avoid bakery products, sugar and flour. Eat more vegetables, fish and meat.
  • Avoid soda as much as possible.
  • Also it’s better to avoid fried food as much as possible.
  • If proteins are your problem, eat less meat and protein products and try more vegetables, fruits and wholegrain breads etc.
  • Walk at least 5 minutes more than you usually do, then slowly increase the time.
  • Cinnamon tea helps you lower blood sugar. Eat it anyway you like, sprinkle on cereal, coffee or any meals.
  • Eat vegetables/fruits as healthy snacks, lunch or dinner

If you follow the above remedies regularly you’ll see a difference within a few days. Remember not all diets work for everyone. Most important is to know what will work best for you.

Personally, I believe if you really want good results, don’t force yourself, start small. If you can’t avoid most of the food then start consuming less of it. Once you start seeing results you’d be more encouraged and maybe then you can avoid it and eat healthier.

Please let me know in the comments below if you tried any of these remedies and they worked for you or not. Also I’d like to hear if you have any more remedies or suggestions that we can add here.
