A Nomad’s Struggles: Self Doubt and Living in the Moment

Everyone who wants to live their dream has to live in the moment, right? Surely none of these successful travel bloggers, adventurers and people that I look up to would have sat at home, going from extremely happy to downright depressed, juggling the many, many options that life has to offer? I'm just full of…

Everyone who wants to live their dream has to live in the moment, right? Surely none of these successful travel bloggers, adventurers and people that I look up to would have sat at home, going from extremely happy to downright depressed, juggling the many, many options that life has to offer? I'm just full of self doubt. I know I'm not the first one to be weighed down by what everyone else wants me to do vs. what I want to do with my life.

What on earth do I choose? Do I become a photographer? Writer? Graphic designer? Businessman?

I've made the first big decision (much to my families dismay) of deferring my university application to 2015, so it's still there if I decide to go, but I get to try out my dream of traveling the world and living from my own income; through photography and odd jobs. In my heart, I know this is going to be much more than just one year.

To be honest, I can see why they're scared. Chase a promising business career and a university degree, or drop everything and become technically homeless? I think that it is this self doubt and pressure from those around us that stops the vast majority of people from living out their dreams. Every time I feel that doubt creeping up on me, I just think of that Jimmy Johnson quote: “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.

Nobody ever realized their dream without putting a hell of allot of commitment in, not only in the physical act of taking the necessary, but to themselves, in order to actually believe that they could do it at all. It seems all too easy to let excuses, laziness and the comfort of what we know stop us from living our dreams.

I have always struggled with commitment. I was in and out of school my whole life, and I simply can not do anything if I'm not motivated to do it. If I'm being honest, that fills me with fear. Will I still be as enthusiastic about this in a year, or will it fizzle out?

But then I realize that my whole life, learning about the world and sharing it with others is pretty much the only thing that gives me that buzz. It's like tobacco to a smoker, whiskey to an alcoholic, crack to … You get the idea. That feeling in the pit of my stomach that only the thought of doing exactly THIS can cause. That's why I know that I have nothing to fear.

“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” – M. Scott Peck. ”

Tanzania or Botswana: How to Determine the Right Safari Destination for You

Why are you contemplating an African safari for your vacation? Is it because you're addicted to the National Geographic Channel and want to see things “in the raw”? Or are you an animal lover that wishes to donate to the cause of saving the wild life? Many tour companies and lodges profit share with wild…

Why are you contemplating an African safari for your vacation? Is it because you're addicted to the National Geographic Channel and want to see things “in the raw”? Or are you an animal lover that wishes to donate to the cause of saving the wild life? Many tour companies and lodges profit share with wild life conservation companies and local villages. Or are you the Ernest Hemingway of your group and want to big game hunt? Or is it simply another notch for your travel belt? I've been on 4 safaris and each time I've gone, I've gone for different reasons. Mostly for reasons # 1 and # 2. But as you continue to go, you learn that you simply love the countries, the animals and the people. I've been to Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa.

No matter what country or countries you choose for your safari, if you're coming from the states, it's a long haul. My sister and I just got back from a 13 day trip traveling to Tanzania. 9 of those days were actually on safari. She flew from Houston to Amsterdam and then on to Kilimanjaro. She spent, basically, 24 hours on her travel. I took a direct flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg. The flights arrive late in the evening so an overnight at your point of entry is usually a must. I spent a night at the Joburg airport and then it took another full day to get to Kilimanjaro via Nairobi (and that was right after it had practically burned to the ground).

When planning for your safari, you should update your vaccinations ie tetnus, flu shot, hepatitis A etc. When traveling to Tanzania, you do need a yellow fever shot. When traveling to Botswana, you may need one depending on which country you are coming from. If you are traveling directly from the United States, it is not needed. From South Africa, it is. You can go to a local travel health clinic to get advice on what you'll need. But these guys are expensive and the experience could be a harrowing one. Harrowing because even though they recommend certain shots, they tell you the shots may cause kidney and / or liver failure, facial deformity, flatulence, growth of extra toes. You get the picture. Just decide which “optional” vaccinations you might want. But you will need malaria tablets. That's a must.

So how do you choose between Tanzania and Botswana? They both have great lodges, great guides, great hospitality. But they are very different in their safari experiences. The main reasons to visit Tanzania are the Serengeti Plains and the Ngorogoro Crater. Both are teeming with wild life, large prides of lions, miles of wildebeest, huge herds of zebra, rhino, leopards, cheetahs. The downside? Large groups of animals attract large groups of people. A camp manager told us that one day 450 vehicles entered the Crater. That's a lot of people trying to get a photo of a lone cheetah. Depending on your guide, you may spend up to 8-10 hours on your drive. And that's in a vehicle unairconditioned and on very bad roads. But, heh, we saw lots of animals. The terrain is all very similar. Well, that's why they're called the “plains”. Another plus is that the Maasai call parts of Tanzania home. Great photo ops … if you have the right amount of cash to offer for that picture. In Tanzania, we flew and drove between camps.

Botswana offers a completely opposite safari experience. Plus side? The parks are smaller so the game drives are typically divided into two, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. They're usually about 4 hours each. Viewing of game is a more intimate experience. If you spot lions, it may be just your Range Rover and one other at the scene. The other positive aspect of Botswana is the varying territory. It is the home of the Okavango Delta. We went from dry, arid conditions to being on a river to then being in the Okavango Delta and doing water safaris. Botswana is also a must for bird watchers, particularly in the Delta. The downside? You see what you came to see but not animals en masse. We flew between our camps. For some, this could be a negative. I loved it.

You're going to spend a great deal of time and money to get there, so choose well!

Dhanushkodi – The Town That Continues to Fascinate Amidst Ruins

The southern tip that is the closest point to Srilanka is also the place where Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean merge. While you will feel ready standing at the southern tip of India, you will also be moved when you see the town that was once alive is now reduced to rubble. Dhanushkodi…

The southern tip that is the closest point to Srilanka is also the place where Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean merge. While you will feel ready standing at the southern tip of India, you will also be moved when you see the town that was once alive is now reduced to rubble.

Dhanushkodi was a major point of entry to India, until 1964 when a massive cyclone devastated the entire town, washing away the railway track, a steam engine, its carriages, buildings, temples and near the entire town. The partially drowned and partly visible railway track makes us understand the extent of the damage that the town faced due to cyclonic storm and deadly waves that washed the entire town away. The on lookers and locals told us that train ferried passengers between Dhanushkodi and Rameswaram. The buried railway track is the harsh reminder that the town that once flourished.

The buildings that braved the fateful day still exist partly buried in the sand and collectively weeded by the sea adding a mysterious beauty to the place. A rusted four-pillared structure, a ruined church, town post office, now a broken red arch and welcomes us to this lost land. A ruined railway station and a temple lie among the debris. We could see several shells of the structures poking above the white sand against a calm and quiet sea. Dhanushkodi is the living example of the uncertainty of our lives.

On 1964, 23rd December early morning around 3 am, cyclonic storm that passed through Dhanushkodi at a speed of 120 km per hour ripped the town off. The giant waves that swept through swallowed most of the town instantly with over 2000 people went into the sea. The destroyed remains still reflect the tragic account of the destruction and the scale of damage that nature could bring about.

Even though the town was wiped away by the 1964 cyclone, small numbers of temporary settlers live in thatched huts during the fishing season. It sees the stretch along Dhanushkodi is one of the richest fishing belts in India.

Despite the ruins, Dhanushkodi welcomes hundreds of tourists every day. It continues to fascinate tourists from across the country belonging to diverse age groups, genres, demography etc.,

While the town is totally deserted and ruined, the vans that are waiting to take tourists through the town is absolutely pathetic. The van that can comfortably accommodate 10 people, dumps 35 people inside and takes them through the most difficult and uncomfortable ride. I do not know why Tourism Department is not taking any initiative to arrange for a comfortable site seeing ride instead of depending on those madly crowded vans.

In this silent and fascinating beach, we could see people selling sea shells, oysters and other sea based products and there were small hut stalls selling cool drinks. But all of them are in a very bad condition. Every time when a strong breeze blow across, the hut-stores covered with jute sacks and torn clothes will shake and you will think that it is going to get blown away. Although few fishermen live in small huts at Dhanushkodi still, no facility is seems to be in place to make it suitable for human habitation. It is even more painful to know that State and Central government has declared that Dhanushkodi is unsuitable for human habitation and hence the town remains completely discontinued from the administration.

For those spiritually-inclined, Dhanushkodi is an important place for holy dipping and every year on auspicious days thousands of domestic and foreign tourists through the place for worship and holy dipping. The problems they face due to unavailability of even basic facilities in the town is unexplainable. Only when State Government and Department of Tourism intervene we can expect some development in Dhanushkodi and its neighboring places.

When State Government takes initiative, Dhanushkodi can get a fresh lease of life and it can become one of the foremost shore towns of the state. Ruined churches, buildings, schools, temples and homes could have been reconstructed and made way for a renovated town.

Is it sufficient if we simple say that Dhanushkodi is not suitable for human habitation ?. Only when you can see in person the look of those (locals) suffering there you can understand that how important it is to establish some basic facility for sanitation, power, infrastructure, food, healthcare etc., If government can take some serious measures to improve the living conditions of people living there and offer more facilities for tourists, then Dhanushkodi will get a fresh lease of life and the destination will attract more visitors.

Another important attraction is the mysterious Ram Sethu, otherwise known as Adam's Bridge. This is a bridge made entirely of limestone that barely communicates the Indian mainland with the Sri Lankan mainland. This bridge has high religious significance, as followers of the Hindu faith believe that Lord Rama built the bridge in his quest to reach Sri Lanka, to secure his wife Sita.

Dhanushkodi is 18km away from Rameshwaram. Dhanushkodi is an abandoned town and permit visitors only during day. So you have to stay at Rameshwaram.

How to get there:

Rail: There are direct trains from Chennai to Rameswaram – Sethu Express and Rameswaram Express. From Rameswaram several buses ply to Dhanushkodi.

Road: There are no straight buses from Chennai. However, there are buses from Madurai to Rameswaram.

Air: Madurai is the nearest airport.

Why You Should Not Miss The Fun of Helicopter Skiing This Winter

Helicopter skiing or heli-skiing is the latest 'in' thing for those who own personal brand of heroine is adrenaline rush.

Helicopter skiing or heli-skiing is the latest 'in' thing for those who own personal brand of heroine is adrenaline rush. It is specifically loved by those who can not wait to ski or to get their snowboards on and go for a flying ride. Heli-skiing gives them a new high that is beyond every possible imagination. You do not have to worry about the frozen chairlifts or any lifts, the helicopter will pick you from the ground in just a minute or two. Then it gives you a view that can otherwise cost you a grand or more. So this is a complete win-win situation for the rider.

What makes helicopter skiing immensely popular is not this view or no-lift point, but the powder you are going to experience in every next run. For any skier, this is as rare as experiencing a Christmas snowfall in Times Square. Moreover, generally, if you go to any popular skiing spot in Vali or Utah or Chugach, you will notice that even the biggest ski resorts do not let more than 4 persons to go at once. So you have to be satisfied with your limited allotted area of ​​around 12,000 acres. But, for heli-skiers, the limit is 150,000 acres as one helicopter can allow five skiers in a single trip to cover 750,000 acres of land. So you can enjoy exploring such a huge terrain without any trouble. What more can one want?

Now, if you are an experienced skier then go for the high-altitude terrains of Alaska. Find a good heli-ski tour operator, book your weekend, and head for some extreme moments. If you are comparatively new to this sport or just a novice in this field, then it will be wiser to choose a location close to your home and try sno-cat first before you take this heli-skiing plunge. With Heliski, you can get all-in-one trips at pocket-friendly prices. Nice ski resorts, best equipments, huge terrain, excellent dining options, and, over all, budget helicopter skiing offers.

But all you have to remember is that Mother Nature can be a real spoiler here. So plan your trip carefully and keep an eye on the satellite. Helicopter Skiing can be unthinkable is the weather condition drops or any chance of avalanche developments. You may get the trip refunds, but what about the airfare? So take all these things into consideration and plan your trip accordingly.

How to Choose a Stand Up Paddleboard

With so many brands and shapes on the market, it can be difficult to know which will be the best stand up paddle board for what you want to do.

With so many brands and shapes on the market, it can be difficult to know which will be the best stand up paddle board for what you want to do. Pritchard Windsurfing helps you decide based on your individual preferences and abilities.

Surfing paddleboards are usually narrower, shorter, lighter, and have a narrower nose and tail. They are made for riding waves and are designed for making quick turns and are used primarily in the surf zone.

Multipurpose and recreational stand up paddle boards are built for recreational use and for newbies. These boards are typically much wider, longer, have a greater volume, and typically a pointed nose. The size and volume of multipurpose and recreational stand up paddleboards allow them to offer more stability than wave boards.

Multipurpose and recreational boards are perfect if you are spending your time flat-water paddling on lakes or cruising outside of the surf zone on a beautiful day. If you are a beginner, touring boards are a great choice, so if this is your first time looking into sup and you will mostly be on flat water, then I recommend you go with one of these.

Another important factor to choosing a stand up paddleboard is the board width. Board width helps determine stability. Stand up paddleboards are made up to 36 “wide in order to accommodate a wide variety of body types. displace your weight in the water.

Another consideration for choosing a board is the length of the stand up paddleboard. Beginners will want to use a 10 'to 12'board.

The only way to choose the board that is best for you is to do your research, and the best place for that is your local stand up Paddleboard shop. Many Paddleboard Shops, like Pritchard Windsurfing offer rentals, so you are able to take the boards out and try them. They will also have expert staff to help size you up for a board, go over all points needed including materials and price so you can make an educated decision that you will be happy with for years to come.

We highly recommend you take advantage of one of these experts at your local shop to you aid you in your buying decision.

For more tips choosing a standup paddleboard and more, visit Pritchard Windsurfing , where you can rent a standup paddleboard on Maui for just $ 35 per day.

Ahoy Mateys!

I aim to assist, over the next few weeks, with opening your eyes to all of the wonderful Hidden Treasures of the Andaman Sea.

This first article of my series will deal with some of the fascinating Islands of the Andaman Sea.

Let me begin with a modest overview about the Islands of the Andaman and some interesting facts about their topography.

The Islands of the Andaman Sea are located off the coast of Thailand and are composed of limestone, sandstone and decomposing granite.

The magnificent and huge limestone formations in the Phang Nga Bay area in addition to the Phi Phi Islands are full of spectacular Caves, with Stalagmites and Stalactites. These amazing formations can be seen characteristically upon their vertical faces.

These rock formations (Islands) can easily dissolve in mild acids, which allows for the formation of very unique island structures such as Karsts and Hongs.

We Ask Ourselves About Such Amazing Karsts & How They Came To Be?

According to the history of our Mother Earth, a collision of great magnitude occurred about 300 million years ago, between the Indian sub continent and mainland Asia. The force of the tectonic plates pushed and rotated the whole of Thailand and Malaysia forcing the limestone above the surface, like a bar of wet soap slipping from your grass!

The Karsts that were then formed appeared like fairy castles out of the sea, all different shapes and sizes. You can easily put your imagination to the test and see what these shapes give you; a sleeping princess, a wild dog, or how about a dragon …

There are a few fascinating Hongs within the Andaman Sea as well. Hong is a Thai word for 'room', where you will find many hidden “Gardens of Eden”, lagoons with shallow water that are surrounded by mesmerizing cliff faces and open up to the clear blue sky above.

The delta in the north of Phang Nga Bay Shelters some exotic Caves and ancient wall paintings, rarely visited by tourists, while some Southern Islands have Hidden Caves that are accessible at low tide only.

If you ever get a chance to enter one of these magnificent Hongs at low tide, through the back door, you will never forget the splendor of the moment!
Phang Nga Bay is a magnificent place to visit and a once in a life time experience for everyone, along with being among the top holiday destinations for 2014.

Cheers!

Extreme Activities Essential Travel Tips

Are you planning your honeymoon and would like to do something truly spectacular and different? Or maybe you want to travel with some friends and planning to have the best time of your lives? Or maybe you are traveling solo and would like to try all those exciting activities that people talk about on their blogs? Whatever the case may be, including extreme activities in your itinerary will most certainly give you the thrill and excitation you need to enjoy your vacation. Here are some extreme activities tips to help you get the most of your holiday:

# 1: Make sure you are physically fit.

Before you try any extreme sport or activity, you must see to it that you are physically fit. If you are overweight, try to exercise weeks before your scheduled trip so your body can prepare properly. Remember, it involves “extreme” stuff and you can not go jump off a cliff if you've been having palpitations, chest pains or difficult breathing. You also can not go climb a tall mountain if you overweight. Get your doctor's approval before you leave.

# 2: Read about the activities you are planning to do.

Not all extreme activities are suitable for you. In fact, if you're unhealthy, you probably will not be able to do any of them. So, make sure you read up on such activities. That way you'll know what to expect and plan accordingly. You should also consider the risk factors and possible dangers that may await you. Setting the right expectations will also enable you to enjoy each extreme activity better-there should be no surprises, as the activity itself is already capable of giving you the thrill and excuse you seek.

# 3: Bring all the things you need to ensure your comfort and safety.

The things you need to bring would depend on the extreme activity you will do. One of the most important extreme activities tips you need to remember is that you must be fully prepared for it, not just physically and mentally, but also in terms of what you should bring. If your activity is camping in a remote mountain in Nepal, make sure you have everything you need such as food, medicine, water, and light. If you are going to climb a cliff, make sure you have all the gears and tools you need. Think of going to the beach-you would not want to stay under the sun without a sunscreen!

4. Buy extreme activities travel insurance.

Finally, do not forget to buy travel insurance that caters to extreme activities. It's different from a regular travel insurance because it covers the risks involved in an extreme sport or activity, particularly injuries and medical treatments. Remember that if you only have basic travel insurance and you get into an accident accident during your extreme adventure, your policy will not cover any expenses incurred. Get extreme activities travel insurance just to make sure you are fully covered in case something does happen. Of course, we would not want anything untoward to happen but extreme activities do have their share of risks.

Festival of Fantasy Parade Is All About Stunning Costumes

A Disney parade is the ultimate choice when it comes to celebrate the fantasies in their most appealing and colorful exhibits. I'm always fascinated thinking about those magical moments the parcel offers. Also it is exciting to know that they are the only events where you have the opportunity to see and enjoy your beloved Disney characters in such large numbers – all together at one magical place, dancing andaving at you in their most breathtaking and innovative outfits like never before. Truly, Disney parade is no doubt a world class execution of dream processes that adds more color and vibes to our magical Disney vacations.

Moreover, for a theme park lover a parade is not just another special festive event with awe-inspiring and breathing character processes. It's one of the world's most innovative fashion hubs. Beyond the incredible floats, favorite sound tracks and dance activities there exists a whole new world of costume exhibits. In fact it's the display of stunning costumes that probably makes the parades more special and enchanting unlike any other. And I think the WDW (Walt Disney World) Resort's all new Festival of Fantasy Parade is a true example in this regard. This one-of-a-kind special Disney attraction is the ultimate source in taking forward the elegance and magic of Disney costumes to the next level.

The new day-time parade, which opens this spring, is a great opportunity to discover some of the most extravagant and elaborate costume designs in the history of Disney parks. No other event of its kind had exhibited costumes in such grand style till date. Also it's really exciting to know the amount of creativity involved in this (from first sketch to the final stitch of each and every piece of costume created for the event). And the fact that world renounced fashion designer Mirena Rada teams up with the Disney Costume Department to bring- to-life her most incredible and unique design-concepts at the event is just awesome.

Inspired by fantasies found in the new Fantasyland area of Magic Kingdom Park , the new Parade brings along the classic stories from iconic Disney and Pixar animated movies. While the cast members' dance through the Main Street USA , beloved characters such as The Lost Boys from Peter Pan , the Lion Fish and Bubble Girl from The Little Mermaid , Scottish dancers from Brave and more keep you engaged in what probably the most enchanting Disney processions ever. Also gracing the occasion are few new faces such as Elsa and Anna from Disney's latest blockbuster animated movie Frozen .
