Traveling With a Backpack


Backpacking is the way to go for people who are looking for a low cost independent way to travel. Backpacking and budget traveling go hand in hand as people who like to travel with a backpack are usually the ones who are looking for cheap, budget traveling options. People who backpack are quite different than your normal tourists. They use public transport as a means of travel and prefer youth hostels from the traditional ones.

Traveling as a backpacker can make your travel more interesting because you will be able to see more things and meet more interesting people too. Digital communication gives you the ease of planning and executing a back pack trip much easier than it ever was before.

Though there is no definite answer to the how far back this means of travel and vacationing goes, probably the most prevalent and far reaching backpacking of our time can be traced to the Hippie trail of the 1960’s and 70’s. The Green movement started off a new trend in re- creating the backpacking journey in a more

Smart Tips To Explore Galapagos Islands


The Galapagos Islands are located at the west of Ecuador. They are one of the most beautiful and serene holiday destinations in the world.

Many travelers explore by themselves, but appointing a guide is recommended. A guide can take you through all the notable places in a limited time span which you might not be aware of. Ferries are one of

Fantasy Travel Destinations

When you only get one major vacation per year, it makes sense that you would want to make the most of it. So, given all the possible destinations out there, how do you make your choice? You could rely on friends or family recommendations, but there is another possible alternative, and one that could mean a dream vacation combined with a personal quest.

In today’s culture, our daily lives are on the fast-track, affected by so many outside influences, from the demands of family and friends, to the expectations of employers and co-workers. It is no surprise that the average person seeks some kind of escape in order to de-stress and recharge. Annual planned vacations are definitely an avenue that offer a welcome respite, but those precious days are often not enough. So, to offset that need for a quick-fix escape from the daily grind, many turn to books, movies, and television as a means of stepping out of their own realities and indulging in a little fantasy.

Multi-episode period dramas, like “Downton Abbey,” “The Tudors,” “Game of Thrones,” and most recently, “Outlander,” offer an opportunity to take part in the fantasy on a regular

A Fantasy Travel Destination For Any Cat Enthusiast

Cat Island definitely sounds like a fairy tale land, but it is actually a real island off of the coast of Japan. Cat Island, or Tashirojima Island as it is referred to in Japan, is an island that has a larger cat population than human population. These cats are not owned by anyone on the island, and are instead the main residents of the island. Although these felines are not anyone’s pets, they are treated with the same love and respect as if they were. The island is completely dedicated to felines, which is shown by the cat shaped buildings and cat memorials on the island.

How Did This Remarkable Island Come About?

In the early 1900s, silkworm farmers mostly inhabited the island. Unfortunately, because these silkworm farms were so delicate, pests and rodents began to threaten the silkworms. The farmers decided to bring in cats to control these pests, which is when the cats began to play an important role on the island.

Cats have been residents on the island since this time, and as the feline population has risen, the human population has dramatically declined. The 1950s was the peak of growth

Travel in Fantasy

If you don’t take the time to approximate the time and distance your characters take from point A to point B, you risk inconsistencies which your detail-oriented readers will pick up on. You don’t want your troupe leaving too late to realistically catch the festival in the next town, or save their friend from his scheduled execution in the next kingdom. If you find they would be arriving too early, you can always throw obstacles in their way to slow them down.

Before you can calculate distance, you need a scaled map. A scale is a measurement showing how many inches/millimeters represent a number of miles. My own map scale: 1 inch = 100 miles. Now that you have your scale, you can begin measuring. Rarely do you want to measure the direct distance however – roads curve, adventurers have to backtrack, or a lake crosses their path. An easy trick is to use a piece of string or floss instead of a straight edged paper or ruler. You can curve the string along the exact path, cut it off, pull it straight and then measure it.

Now that you have the distance, you can begin

RV Travel Fun In Virginia

There is just no better way to see the beautiful state of Virginia than by RV. Traveling by RV allows one to take time and smell the roses, or in this case, see the Smoky Mountains, the Shenandoah River and Luray Caverns to name just a few of the attractions waiting in Virginia.

Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway for that country road that John Denver sang about. This spectacular highway connects the Skyline Drive in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina.

Car Rental For Travellers

The massive costs of transport can be enough to put a lid on even the most adventurous traveler. Exploring a country requires that you cover great distances and to do this you need transport. While public transport comes in many shapes and sizes, its not always the best option. Although it can be much cheaper, it lacks the convenience and comfort of having your own vehicle.

While car rental itself is probably not a viable option for budget travelers, there are some ways to actually use it to your advantage. One of the best ways to make car rental affordable is to rent a camper van. When your transport doubles up as your accommodation, it becomes much cheaper and having the ability to go where you want and when you want can make your whole travel experience much more adventurous.

Campers range from ultra stylish “apartments on wheels” to crammed little vans. Most car rental companies focus on family sized camper vans and this is usually suited for a family of 4. With a double bed in the camper van itself and additional sleeping in the extension, it has everything you need. Kitchen, bathroom, shower

Unknown Travel Destinations in Panama

Panama is a country of cultural and natural beauty; its roots reach back into history as a trade hub and today, its skyline ever-evolving as a real estate and travel hotspot. But with all the widely-publicized beauty the country retains, here are our 5 spots you’ll rarely read about in pamphlets or see on TV.

  1. Isla Canas, Los Santos: This small island just south of Pedasi in Panama’s Azuero Peninsula is a gem waiting to be discovered. It is the home to a thriving native population, some of the most secluded beaches in the country, and the nesting location of giant leatherback turtles. Bring a tent as few, if any, accommodations exist.
  2. Lago Bayano, Darien: This giant lake sits in the province of Darien which, on paper, is a dangerous place due to its proximity to the border with Columbia. However, this region is far north enough to void you of harm; its pristine good looks enough to impress even the most seasoned eco-traveler. Explore the caves surrounding the rim of the lake, or discover hidden waterfalls on perhaps on of Panama’s most far-flung paradises.

Extreme Exploring Via Internet

People have walked to the far ends of the Earth, travelling, exploring, and learning. Individuals have been exploring the world for centuries, discovering new lands, people, and parts of nature. Back in the day people would disappear for months while on their travels, maybe sending word back to people at home every few months or weeks if they were lucky. Those who found themselves in the most remote areas of the globe could never have entertained the thought of being able to speak with people back in civilization. Thanks to modern technology, remaining in contact with people all over the world is easier and more accessible than ever. Satellite internet is now easier to carry and use than ever.

Now people not only have the option of bringing internet access along with them wherever they go, but there whole office can become portable, including phones and fax.

A Budget Friendly Travel Guide

Siem Reap City is located at the Northwestern part of Cambodia and is home to the majestic Angkor Wat Temple. It was built in the 12th century at the peak of the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Wat is a UNESCO world heritage site and is the highlight of most travels to Siem Reap City. But, aside from the Angkor Wat, there are many other beautiful temples to see around the region and a rich culture and history to be discovered in this quaint little city.


The most convenient way to get there is to fly directly to Siem Reap airport. Other travelers exploring South East Asia fly to the capital of Phnom Penh and take a 5-6 hour bus ride to Siem Reap City. For my trip from I flew directly to Siem Reap from Manila. The flight took approximately two and half hours.

Make arrangements with your hotel to have a shuttle or Tuk-Tuk driver meet you at the airport. If your hotel is located at the town center, the trip from the airport will take about 15 to 20 minutes.

Have Fun Travelling


Very early in life we begin travelling. First we travel from our mother’s womb into the wide wonderful world we now inhabit. Next we travel home from the hospital, if we were born in a hospital. We travel a lot during the years we live at home. We go to school. We go with our parents on vacations. We go to camps. We find all sorts of places to go and explore.

When we leave home and begin making a life for ourselves there will be as much or as little travel as required. You may travel only to and from work except for vacation time. Or you may find ways to spend every available moment travelling somewhere or other. It really depends on how much you are curious about the rest of the world and what people are doing there.

Modes of Travel

Most of us have a car and use it a lot. In addition to the travel that is necessary it can be great fun to get in the car and go exploring.

I remember how excited I was when I got my first driver’s license and how put

The Call of Travel

What is the allure of travel? There are those who have a passion to see people and places other than where they live. Then there are those who have no interest in exploring anywhere beyond the area they live and work.

The Lure of New Experiences

When traveling you have the choice to explore totally new places or investigate familiar ones to even greater depth. There are sights at the sites, good food… and bad, fascinating attractions and places to shop. Part of the fun of traveling is meeting the people who live and work in the various places. The personalities change according to the region and according to their role. Sometimes they are who they say they are. At other times they may have been playing a role for so long they’ve even forgotten who they truly are.

The Fun of Being Someone Different

Just as the people you meet in various locations may be playing a role, you can be someone totally different from who you are at home or work. You can be quiet or reserved, or loud and boisterous. Only your companions who come with you know if you’re

Will Ares Be the Future of Space Travel Tips

Space travel is a tricky subject, although technology on Earth is developing at tremendous speeds the same cannot really be said for space travel. If we cast our minds back over five decades ago you will remember that the mission to the moon captured every persons imagination. But not much has really been done since then.

NASA have for the last few years been developing a shuttle called Ares for the new constellation program. The basic purpose of the program is to actually gain much more experience in humans and crafts spending time away from Earth and developing technologies to go further into outer space.

Similar to the Apollo program the spacecraft will first fly a low Earth orbit, NASA has been working to retire its current shuttle fleet and begin flying the Ares program by 2015. It is rumored that a manned mission to Mars will not be until after 2030, but before that astronauts would instead visit a close asteroid.

Personally I think this is moving much to slow, by the time NASA attempts to visit Mars over 100 years would have passed since visiting the moon. I mean space exploration holds
