CHOOSING A TRAVEL AGENCY FOR YOUR HOLIDAY

Should you contact a travel agency for your holiday? Holiday makes your mind relax and take a short break from your daily routine. Going for a vacation to the new destinations can get you a lot of knowledge end experience that probably you never get before. The other benefit is you may also get a fresh new idea for your works and your business. When you are planning your holiday, sometimes you think which one is better? Do you need a travel agency to plan your holiday or should you plan it all by yourself? Here are some advantages and disadvantages of using a this service for your holiday.

Budget Costs

When you plan your own holiday, it can be cheaper if you choose a very cheap accommodation such as hostel or guesthouse. It also works on the transportation costs. Instead of using private cars, you can save more money by using public transportation. If you want to have a comfortable holiday and get more facilities, using a travel agency’s service could be cheaper. Most of the travel agency already has an agreement or contract to some of the hotels and transportations services. Both of them have different ways of payments. If you contact a travel agency, you will need to pay a down payment in advance before your departure. This will make a travel agency service will look more expensive. Whereas if you go on the vacation on your own, you will only need to spend money on the day you are going.

But by going on a holiday by yourself, you may also go to some unique place that the travel agency has prepared.…

It’s OK to Quit

It’s OK to Quit

How old where you when you realized that quitting is a bad thing? Kids taunt one another with that derogatory word – Quitter! Parents tell their kids not to quit; that they can’t quit if they’ve committed to something. I’ve been guilty of it. But, is it OK to quit? Or, better yet, when is it OK to quit?

There’s a Turkish proverb that I recently read: “No matter how far you’ve gone down a wrong road, turn back.” Have you travelled down the wrong road? Have you stuck to your guns, persevered, made it work, or gutted it out? Was it miserable?

I’m sure you know someone who spent a lot of time and energy trying to make a marriage work, only to finally throw in the towel. I know many people (on both sides of a divorce) who say they hung on too long, tried too hard, knew it wasn’t the right thing. They made a commitment and they stuck with it. Couldn’t quit. Stayed miserable.

I’m not advocating divorce, or giving up too soon. But realistically, sometimes you just know you’re down the wrong road and, no matter how far you’ve traveled, it’s time to turn back.

Investors in businesses will sometimes talk about “throwing good money after bad”. They’re too far down a road (big investment) and keep throwing more money at it in hopes it will work out. When they know it probably won’t, the best option is to stop wasting money! Quit.

Have you ever committed to something – a committee, an organization, a neighborhood task or duty, etc. – only to realize that it was not at all what you thought it would be? You’re not enjoying it, or maybe you loathe it. But you’re not a quitter so you keep plodding along, dreading each meeting. Yuck!

When you say “yes” to something you don’t enjoy, you’re saying “no” to everything else. That’s “no” to family, working out, friends, reading, mowing the grass, napping – everything else! That’s time you’ll never get back. Why be miserable when you know it’s just not right for you?

Another amazing thing about staying with something when you’re not committed: You won’t be giving your best and others will know it. Rather than pretend, come clean. State your case and find a way to either get committed, or get out. It’s best for you and for the rest of the group – as well as the committed person who will follow you! Step aside, do what you want to do and let someone else have your spot. Everyone ends up a winner!

Check some of the roads you’re traveling. No matter how far you’ve gone if it’s not the right road for you, turn back. You quitter!…

How Do You Create A Good Eco Policy?

How Do You Create A Good Eco Policy?

As someone who gives advice on travelling I think that it’s very important that I have a comprehensive, well thought and realistic eco policy. I just don’t know what it is yet.

It seems like the more I read the more confused I get – then I talk to someone else and I get even more confused. It seems that the whole eco debate is not black and white, but many, many shades of grey (or green I suppose?).

Take for example the supposed wisdom that we should shop close to home (preferably buying organic vegetables straight out of the ground, if we can’t grow our own.) So I was talking to a friend of a friend who works with African charities and I said to her “I feel bad buying lettuce from Ethiopia – isn’t that taking their food or water?”

Her reply? “No, it’s absolutely essential that you buy their produce as it supports their local economy.”

“But what about the carbon emissions from flying food to us here?”

“Well, think about it, if you grow salad in the UK, or in Europe, it’s probably grown in a greenhouse which has to be heated – so it’s probably even less eco friendly.”

So now, well I feel a lot happier about buying food from poorer countries, but I’m still not entirely sure that I’m doing the right thing. And there are similar debates about recycling and even cycling. I read a book this year written by a guy who was developing his own eco-lodge in India and his take on ecology really hurt my brain. He even said that people who cycle, but eat energy bars that may have ingredients from all over the world may actually be less eco-friendly than people driving cars – help!

Of course the same guy after stating 4 x 4s also then went on to justify extensively why he needed one to keep his children safe. (Isn’t that just the same argument as everyone else?) And of course this guy after proclaiming that air travel was extremely evil went on to talk about his eco holiday resort. (How does he think his guests are going to get to India?) So yes I did keep throwing down his book in disgust.

So far my thinking is this:

I love when airlines make it really easy to press a button at the bottom of a screen that lets me make my trip carbon neutral.

I think there are some carbon neutral schemes that are brilliant – for example the ones that create wells to save people from having to drive (or walk) long distances to get water – I mean that’s a great thing even without the carbon angle. So I might just start giving all my carbon neutral money to them, so I know that something good is coming out of it.

I understand that the biggest problem to affect global warming is not travel but the destruction of the rainforests – so maybe that should be our biggest priority?

I think that if tourism can save the rainforests, by helping people who live there to make a more profitable living from an intact forest than a palm oil plantation, then tourism could end up saving the world.

I think that responsible safari tourism – for people wanting to see tigers, leopards, polar bears, whales and dolphins can help protect those populations.

I think that people who live in fear; of starvation, violence, etc. probably don’t care that much about looking after the planet, they are just trying to look after their families. So the more people we can help to make a decent, safe living, the more people are able to become interested in wider, long term issues, like protecting their environment, for their own community and for everyone’s benefit.

So that’s my thinking so far – and hopefully once I’ve done some more research I can make this into that great eco policy I was talking about, hopefully with some nice way of you clicking onto a link that will help protect the world. But, if you have any suggestions or any easier ways for me to understand this stuff, then please, please let me know!…

Boxing Workouts to Improve Your Performance

Boxing Workouts to Improve Your Performance

Basic Training Tips

The training of boxers, and the pace and scope of their boxing workouts are largely dependent on the point in their career that they have arrived at. If you are a beginning boxer, a starting training routine might involve learning to hit the speed bag and the heavy bag, as well as the double end bag. You can stand in front of a mirror and do shadowboxing, so you can watch your form. You can also work on jogging, calisthenics and skipping, as well as jumping rope. An occasional sparring practice bout will help you develop moves and counter-moves.

If you’re an amateur or a pro, and you’re preparing for a bout, your boxing workouts will be much more involved and strenuous. You may be getting up at five in the morning to jog, flying to the location of the bout, and going over the same gym routine as beginners, but now you’ll be doing it to hone your skills to their sharpest levels.

Your priority one must be safety. Find yourself a trainer or a coach who has enough experience to be able to “show you the ropes”. Make sure your trainer understands and encourages proper body mechanics and proper technique.

Learn how to correctly wrap your hands, and get a sturdy pair of gloves. Have your trainer school you in proper body mechanics. Remember that the key to success in learning technique is repetition. Don’t push yourself too far too fast. Be patient, and build yourself up slowly.

In all your boxing workouts, concentrate on proper mechanics and on using your skills. Power will come from speed, and that comes with a smooth technique and delivery. Work on your form, and gradually build up your intensity.

Weight lifting and running will enhance your overall condition. They won’t replace sparring as practice, but they are intended to be a supplement to your routine. If you want to become a better boxer, you have to get in the ring and box.…
