Want To Touch The Sky? Fly to 5 Great Destinations

“What a Wonderful World…” sang once  Louis Armstrong. And in deed, this world is not only wonderful but also amazing. To fly to great locations is a great pleasure. I myself, love flights!  Flying is a great experience in itself. Flying does not have to be the leisure of the rich any more.  There are tones of online sites to find great and affordable deals, especially if you take flight in Asia.  I have listed five destinations which in my opinion are best places that you can’t miss in your lifetime. All most all of this places will fit into your budget. Okavango Delta, Botswana Of all the wildlife sanctuaries in Africa, why this one? It is because you can get to see wildlife at a close range from a jeep, but in this park you get to see them from Morocco. What is that ? It is a traditional canoe in which you will sway through the grass filled delta and get a close look at animals. Therefore, the best time to visit the place is when the flood is at its peak and the 16000 square kilometer of delta is covered in water. Well if you hold your life too dear, don’t go! Cape Horn, Chile It is the south most tip of South America. Just get the images of it from the Internet. You can get on top of any one of the wave hitting rocks with a sailor cap on your head and expect a Pirates of the Caribbean ship to pick you up. The sharp cliffs and steep rock walls will bring out the adventurer in you. Well, you are not allowed to climb atop most of the rocks because it is too dangerous, but it is not illegal to climb them inside your head! Giza, Egypt I cannot give enough reasons why you should visit this place. I personally call this a Wonder of all wonders. The archaeological details that unravel many ancient mysteries will temp you to become a tomb raider! The astronomical data of the ancient Egyptians will knock the wing out of you. The three great pyramids of Giza are located proportionately at the same distance as how the three stars of the Orion’s belt appear to be. The very mystical ambiance will take you 4000 years ago. Of all the historic locations a person can visit, this is the top one. Maybe the second is Machu Picchu and the third is Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. Oirase mountain steam, Japan This is paradise. Seriously, it is paradise. You can take your camera and click it randomly and it will look like...

How To Survive A Long Flight With Kids

Air travel can be stressful for everyone, from unreasonable security measures to delayed or canceled flights. Parents have even more to stress about when flying, crying babies, fussy toddlers, and fighting siblings will fray anyone’s nerves. Whether you are visiting family or taking the vacation of a lifetime, sooner or later your family may find yourselves taking a long flight. Some parents opt to take late-night flights, hoping the kids will sleep through the bulk of the trip. Other families just try the best they can to keep the kids entertained. Before you find yourself trapped in an airplane for hours with your kids and a crowd of strangers, it pays to prepare. You’ll need to fit everything from snacks to entertainment into a few small bags. Can you really bring enough toys and games to keep your kids busy for hours without leaving those tiny airplane seats? Is there a way to keep them entertained without invoking the ire of nearby passengers? What if your child really does scream for the entire flight? Here are some tips, ideas, and plans that can help smooth out the trip for everyone involved.   Remain Calm Travel can be exciting, especially if your child has never been on an airplane before. This enthusiasm can lead to a child who is incredibly worked-up over an experience that basically amounts to sitting still for several hours. Well-meaning parents may encourage this enthusiasm, but when planning for a smooth trip the last thing you need is a child that is over-the-top excited. While air travel is a unique experience, your child’s expectations should be pretty close to reality. “We’re going to fly above the clouds in an airplane going super-fast!” is likely to result in a kid running in circles with delight and anticipation. “We will have to spend a lot of time waiting and standing in lines, and when we get on the plane we will have to sit in our seats for a long time,” is more likely to prepare your child for the trip. Don’t be too gloomy, but save the exciting parts of air travel for when you’re actually there. Watch the planes take off and land, look out the window while taking off and landing, but try not to get the kids too excited beforehand. Bring Toys Toys can be a great way to keep kids busy during a long flight, but they could just as easily become another headache for you. The trick is to bring the right toys for your particular tot. Parents of older children tend to let them pack their own toys, but the kids...
