Making The Most Of Your Trip

Making The Most Of Your Trip

When was the last time you took a vacation? With all of the economic drama that has been taking place within the United States over the past couple of years, the word ‘vacation’ has seemed to turn into a distant memory of something that families and couples once did a long time ago. Nowadays, many people are opting for something called ‘staycations’ in which they opt out of the long car rides across the country and decide, instead, to spend a little more time getting to know their hometown.
For instance, just because you couldn’t afford to take that Disney cruise or fly to Europe doesn’t necessarily mean that you are restricted to travel anywhere within a five block radius of your home. Instead, this is your chance to put on your creativity cap and flex your Internet searching fingers to find the best deals for things that are happening right in the immediate area where you live. For instance, when my boyfriend and I first started dating, money was a little tight, but we still found free performances that would take place in the surrounding area where we lived. There were also plenty of last minute deals on shows and theater performances. One example was when we went to see a ballet for a fraction of the original ticket price.
One word of advice: don’t limit yourself to only doing the things that you are familiar with and that you know you like. Instead, branch out and try new things, taste new foods and see new performances or shows that you may have otherwise never thought to have seen. After all, how are you ever going to know whether or not you truly like something if you don’t at least try it out first? There are plenty of local restaurants to each area, and there is more than likely a restaurant or two that you haven’t been to before. Going to a local restaurant is often a great idea because they are usually located close to home, which means less money that you have to spend on gasoline.
Have friends that live locally? Find out what their plans are for the holidays or whatever time period you are planning on taking off. Get together and have a potluck dinner or host a dinner at your place. Home made dinners are almost always a hit because it is another cost-effective way of saving money as well as giving you a chance to socialize and flex those culinary muscles!
In addition to hosting dinner and/or lunch at your place, consider the hotels in the area that you live. With all of the money that you will be saving on not having to pay for gasoline expenses and/or plane fare, etc., why not splurge on yourself a little by getting away or spending a night or two at a local bed and breakfast. Even the cost of a babysitter plus the cost of staying at a local hotel for a night wouldn’t come close to what you would spend on a ‘typical’ vacation.

Road Trips With Friends

Road Trips With Friends

Unfortunately, we live in a world today where it doesn’t necessarily make sense to just ‘jump in the car and go’. There are things to consider such as knowing where it is you are going, the condition of the roads that will transport you there as well as how much money you have in your budget for things such as food, gasoline and shelter. You would be amazed at how many people forget or neglect things as basic as these!
When planning a road trip, the very first thing that you will want to make sure of is the condition of the vehicle that you will be taking on the trip. If you are taking your car, make sure that you have all of the pertinent information that goes along with the car such as the driver’s instructional manual for how the car operates. You will also want to make sure that you keep the vehicle registration and proof of insurance somewhere inside of your vehicle, and make sure that your registration card is signed (police officer will ticket you if it’s not!). Other things to make sure that you keep within the vehicle include an emergency kit. An emergency car kit should include some or all of the following items: a first aid kit, a flashlight, a set of jumper cables, flares, batteries, Swiss army knife, non perishable food, an extra set of clothes and a blanket.
While technology has come a long way, it is far from perfect which is why  you should always make sure that your cell phone is charged up and ready to go. Bring along both your car charger as well as a wall mounted charger for the ride in case you get stuck somewhere. It is also a good idea to have a couple of emergency contact phone numbers written down and labeled as such in the event that something happens to you and emergency technicians or others need to reach someone in your family. Regarding more of the fun stuff, I like to always make sure that my iPod is charged and ready to go with hours of my favorite music. Take some time out to rearrange or arrange play lists so that you have something to keep you energized for the long ride.
While some don’t really care, it is a smart idea to bring along a paper version of map versus solely relying on a GPS device. Again, you don’t ever want to trust in technology too completely because it has been known to fail. Before you get in your car, check the tire pressure and know what your personal settings should be for each of your tires. The worst thing that you could do is drive around on tires that are either under-inflated or over inflated. Just making a few changes to your lifestyle can wind up saving you a ton of money in the long run.

Last Minute Camping Trips

Last Minute Camping Trips

Many people love to prepare their holidays many months in advance. Some of us, on the other hand, like making last-minute arrangements. We know that these can be fun and can often lead us into the unknown, adding a sense of adventure as a result.

If your idea of the perfect holiday is to spend a week in the sunshine, being pampered in an expensive hotel, then such last-minute decisions are not always possible. That’s simply because you may need to book many months in advance in order to find the accommodation that you desire.

But camping trips to allow for this added sense of flexibility. Many campsites are not booked up in advance. They will often have available space in which you can pitch your tent, without having to phone ahead. This is wonderful news for those of us who like to jump in the car and get out into the countryside.

We can make our way to an area that we are keen to explore and then find a local campsite. Acting on the spur of the moment can certainly be a lot more exciting and leads to some brilliant discoveries. Maybe you’ll find a campsite that you didn’t even know existed previously. There is also a good chance that you’ll get to explore new parts of the country or region.

Of course, things aren’t always as simple as they seem. You need to be prepared for any camping trip. This means making sure that you have all of the necessary camping accessories and equipment. You need to make sure that you’re not about to be caught out by the weather, or by a lack of facilities.

Fortunately, this does not preclude you from making last-minute arrangements. On the contrary, it simply means that you need to be organised if you wish to take advantage of such opportunities. Always make sure that you know where your vital pieces of camping equipment are stored and can be found.

Everyone should be able to enjoy the freedom associated with camping trips that are arranged at short notice.

A Trip to Fort Lauderdale

A Trip to Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is littered with families and is a great spot for a family break. Family venues are everywhere in Fort Lauderdale, it has lots of canal-side restaurants with menus for kids and plenty of beach front resorts that cater to families. The resorts have kids’ clubs, playgrounds, children’s pools and other family and kids orientated amenities.

You might think that choosing a hotel in Fort Lauderdale is difficult but with the amount of resorts on hand it isn’t hard at all; it just depends on the time of year and your budget.

If your resort isn’t located right on the beach there is probably one within walking distance. And at lunch time when it starts to get too hot you might want to head back and visit the Fort Lauderdale Arts and Entertainment center. If you have older kids or even non at all then a stroll around Las Olas Blvd might be just the break you need from the beach or maybe a River walk could be just what you are looking for especially if you love to shop! There’s an overnight camp as well if Mom and Dad need some alone time, with “Beach Hotel Camp Sleepovers.”

A stop for lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf restaurant in Pompano Beach is a great place to just sit and watch the world go by, the food is great and the staff are friendly, it is situated on one of the longest fishing piers on the east coast.

If you are a couple then Fort Lauderdale is fantastic with lots of things to do. There are romantic restaurants, sports venues, shopping, boating and lots of little take-out restaurants if that’s your thing.

There are lots of resorts located near a beach front and what better way to while the hours away than to get out there and soak up some sun; if you’re staying inland there is still no excuse not to enjoy the sun either, a beach is usually just a short walk away but most of the inland resorts still have a pool area.

Between June and September on Friday evenings there are free musical concerts held at Holiday Park; if it’s the second or fourth Friday, the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk hold a free outdoor concert. A great way to end your romantic evening is with a carriage ride around Old Fort Lauderdale. The Royal Horse Drawn carriages are reasonably priced and is a fantastic way to see the area.

If you want to visit Las Olas and visit the riverfront and canals then you can park in the Arts and Entertainment Parking Garage and take the free trolley down Las Olas. Then walk down the riverfront to the Old Fort Lauderdale Village and Museum, located at the site of the city’s first hotel.

Fort Lauderdale is a fantastic place to visit and a great vacation spot. Getting around can be a pain but with a little forward thinking you can get around the area with ease.

Top 3 Fun Road Trip Games

Top 3 Fun Road Trip Games

Finding fun road trip games can sometimes be the best part of a holiday. Spending time with your children and laughing all the way to your destination. I have put together my top 3 fun road trip games. I hope you enjoy them and they give your family hours of entertainment.

My Ultimate List of Fun Road Trip Games

1. Degrees of Separation

Rules: One person thinks of 2 separate things, people, places. . . . literally anything. The trick is that they have to somehow be linked. They will then say the two ‘things’ out loud and tell the other people how many degrees of separation they are linked by. It is then the job of the guessers to find all of the missing links.

For example

An Apple to Michael Jordan via 4 degrees of separation

Michael Jordan

Shares the same initials as

Michael Jackson

Was married to

Lisa Marie

Daughter of


Both are famous singers

Chris Martin

Named his child after an


This is without a doubt the best fun road trip game I have ever played. Obviously you might need to give the guessers some help but the game is about fun not who wins.

Then once the guessers have figured it out it is your turn to make one up.

2. The List Game

This is best for 3 people. Take it in turns to be the judge. The judge names a list eg. Beatle songs or different makes of car. The first person then places a bid on how many ‘things’ in this list they think they can name. It then goes to the second person who places their own bid. This process is repeated until one of the players tells the other to name the list.

That person then simply tries to name the allotted amount of things that they bid. If they make it they win – if they don’t they lose. Pretty simple but definitely one of my favourite and best fun road trip games.

3. Who am I

An oldie but a goodie. Two people think of someone famous and then take it in turn to ask yes or no answers until you someone guesses it right. The rules differ slightly but my favourite rules are simply one question each (some play that if you receive a yes answer you get another go).

I hope you enjoyed my top 3 fun road trip games. Best of luck on your adventure, holiday or car journey.

Tips For a Road Trip

Tips For a Road Trip

A road trip holds many pleasant and not so pleasant surprises for the adventurer and it is described as driving in a vehicle for several hours with, or without a particular destination in mind. Every year some individuals and some families pack their luggage and set off for a week or a bit longer on this adventure.

A few things that can be done to help make the trip a bit more enjoyable are:


If you will be travelling with children, walking with board games and electronic games, toys and CDs will be worth it. Additionally, playing games such as “I spy” and how many cars can you see with a particular color or vehicles that has a specific number plate. You can also make up games like these along the way.

DVD Player

If you will be travelling with a vehicle that has a built-in DVD player, all you will need to do is to grab some DVDs. On the other hand, if the vehicle does not have one, you can purchase a portable one or see about having one install in the vehicle.


Stock up on a lot of healthy snacks. If your plan is to stop at restaurants and supermarkets along the way, you can stock up on your food supply during these times.

Do not forget to keep a lot of water in the vehicle and drink a lot of it, especially when you feel like drinking soft drinks. Keep your body hydrated.

Cash and Card

Although we are living in an electronic age, cash-in-hand is still welcome by many. However, do not walk with a lot of cash. Instead, walk with a debit card that you can access money with and only store in that bank account the amount of money that you are going to use on the trip. This will help to keep you from spending more money than you want. Also, with the cash that you will be walking with, do not only walk with notes, walk with change as well.


Make a record of your journey. You can take out many photographs, write a journal, or perhaps videotape the journey of your adventure on your road trip.

The Joy Of Hiking Trips

The Joy Of Hiking Trips
Hiking trips are an adventurous way to take a vacation or a little bit of time out to enjoy nature at its finest, up close. By taking a hiking trip you are also able to go to destinations that are remote or hard to get to, making your hiking trip an adventure that won’t easily be forgotten. Research the place that you are planning to visit on your hiking trip. Find out the best time of the year is to visit, as sometimes the weather conditions can be quite extreme at certain times of the year.

Although hiking on your own can seem like an exiting adventure, it is a lot safer to go hiking in a group. The more people who are along for the hike, the more likely it is you will all return home safely. If there is an accident or mishap along the way, there will be more people to assist. Before going on a hike, it is also a good idea to take part in a basic first aid course.

Since you are hiking, it will be necessary to carry everything needed for your adventure on your back. This will mean that the things that you take will be limited. Some of the things that you can’t do without are good quality hiking gear such as boots and waterproof, lightweight clothing to provide warmth and protection from the elements. Rope, tarp and sleeping bags will be necessary especially if you are camping out. These things will provide you with some of the necessities while hiking.

Make sure to bring along a first aid kit complete with sterile bandages, gauze and disinfectant. Other necessities such as water and food for the trip are essential. Matches will be needed to light a fire if you are planning on camping out on your hiking trip or if you get lost. Dehydrated food can be an ideal way to carry a fair amount of food without it taking up a lot of space or being too heavy to carry.

Hiking trips are not only a lot of fun they are also very beneficial to your health. Hiking will not only make you more fit, it will also help reduce stress and allow you plenty of thinking time. The feeling of challenging yourself will also be great for your mental health.

It is important to remember that, when hiking, you should bring all the necessary things needed. Think over what you need very carefully before taking your hiking trip. Notify family, neighbors or people of importance that you are going and when you are expected back from your hiking trip. If you are new to hiking, it may be a good idea to take some hiking safety classes before going out alone.

Don’t forget to take a camera so that, once you return home, you can share your adventures with friends and family. You will also have a long-term memento of how beautiful the countryside was on your hiking trip.

A Field Trip to Hell

A Field Trip to Hell
A Field Trip to Hell: Experience the 30 torments of hell firsthand without having to stay for eternity

By Minister Kevin Benton


God was Not Finished with Me Yet

How could a loving God allow, let alone order, something like this in my life when I was at least trying to take a stand for him, trying to do right, and trying to do his will? I was not perfect, and I never used my imperfection as an excuse, but I was trying to be a good witness. I could not come to grips with the fact that this was the way that my life was going to end. I began reading the Bible throughout the day and listening to the Christian televisions stations. Every message I turned on was about how God was going to heal me and raise me up off of my bed of affliction because he was not done with me yet. I just knew these preachers were talking specifically to me and my situation. And needing a word of encouragement, especially at that time, I took those words to heart. When I woke up on the second day in the hospital, I was surprised that I lived through the night. I praised and thanked God for another day that was not promised, and I whispered to myself, “The dream is still alive. I’ve still got time left on the clock.” So I decided to praise and thank God every day he wakes me up in the morning. That same day, while I was lying awake in the bed, an old cleaning lady mopped her way into my room. She put her mop down next to my bed, grabbed me by the hands, and began praying for me in the name of Jesus Christ. I don’t remember everything she said, but I do remember her praying with an African accent. “God, in the name of Jesus, heal him because the devil is trying to take his life because he has a calling on his life. And God, use him for your praise, honor, and glory.”

When she finished praying, a peace came over my entire body as if someone had poured cold water on me from my head that slowly trickled down to my feet. Tears flowed from my eyes because of her gesture of love. The old lady went out of my room, and I never saw her again. When the doctor came in to take my blood pressure, he was amazed at the results. He said, “I don’t understand what just happened,” as he kept looking at the pressure gauge to make sure it was working properly and that he was reading it right. Even though he saw major improvement in my condition, he wanted me to stay in the hospital one more day. Another EKG showed the size of my heart had gone down, and my appetite began coming back. I knew for sure that God had miraculously healed my body and raised me up from my bed of affliction as the television preachers said he would do. I came into the intensive care unit in a wheelchair, and now two days later (three day’s altogether) I was walking out after being released to go home due to my improved condition. My appetite had returned and I began gaining my weight back slowly but surely.

It seems that when I read Psalms 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way,” I had failed to read the next verse, “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: For the Lord upholds him with His hand.” The Word of God connected with my personal traumatic experience, letting me know that a loving God allowed me to go through what I went through. He loved me and did not leave me hanging. At this point I stopped questioning why God allowed me to go through what I went through and began questioning myself as to why he allowed me to survive it. I knew if I could answer this second question I could figure out what my destiny in Christ was. There simply had to be purpose and a reason.
