Traveling has always been everybody’s dream, the dream to wander with nothing to worry about and find oneself, that euphoric feeling of letting go to whatever bothers you and focus on your inner self and free your mind to all the hustle of the city life. Listed below are the tips and tricks of traveling in details. Trust your Instincts In everything you do trust your instincts and follow your heart especially on where you’re going or where you’ll travel next.  Listen to your heart and dream of the next destination you’ll go to.  If you’ll do so, you’ll find the inner peace that you’ve never felt. (image by : Neal Sanche ) Restore Broken Relationships This may be a bit odd but yes traveling can help you mend broken relationships and build up new ones. Try to take someone you don’t usually get along with or someone and you’ll be surprised with the relationship you can build. It’s not every day that you’ll get to be with someone almost 27/7, take the time to talk things out and mend those broken relationships. Take time to know each other and develop new relationships. Traveling is always the best outlet for relationship build-up Always be Prepared It’s always important to be prepared.Things don’t always go your way or you can never control any situation so it’s best to be prepared most especially when traveling.

Diamond in the Rough: Polishing Your Ski Technique

Diamond in the Rough: Polishing Your Ski Technique

Oct 24, 2014

Want to be a better skier? You need to practice. Of course, hitting the slopes isn’t the only thing that will turn you into the next Lindsey Vonn or Alberto Tomba. You need good instruction, and following these tips wouldn’t hurt either. Take Up Strength Training Before you head off to book Park City long term rentals for the ski season, step into a gym with free weights. Why free weights? It takes an impressive amount of strength to shift and pivot out there on the slopes. While not every skier trains with weights, some do, and they benefit from the added strength.   Strong people are generally more capable at everything they do, so this is a general recommendation for just about any activity you plan on engaging in. But, it’s especially useful for demanding sports and hobbies, like skiing. The program of choice? Keep it simple. Start with Starting Strength. Take On An Athletic Stance When you ski, you have to maintain a “hunkered down” stance to stay stable. Good skiers retract their legs under them. This keeps the body and skis connected. If you extend your legs too early as the ground gives way, you may lose your balance and fall. Keeping your knees partially bent, and your quads tight, will help with balance. Keeping your glutes tight will also help give you power through the hips – useful for turning, stopping, and all that good stuff. Be Forward Looking You have to be willing, and able, to look down the hill at what’s coming. A second is a long time in downhill skiing. You must gather information about snow texture, depth, route options, exposure, and obstacles at lightning speed. This is where experience helps the most, and getting out on the slopes is invaluable. But, it’s also where good instruction makes a difference. Partner with an experienced skier who knows how to develop this heightened sense. It’s a skill, but it’s something you have to learn conceptually as well as existentially. Live In The Moment Always focus your attention on what’s happening. You should always be looking downhill, but you have to be able to balance forward vision with living...

Falling in-love with a Place Down South: Columbia

Falling in-love with a Place Down South: Columbia

Oct 12, 2014

Every adventure is different, not one experience is the same, but then again; there are those countries or cities that I’d easily fall in-love with, and the dreadful day of packing my things and saying good bye would eventually take its toll. I went down south once, and there I fell in-love with a city, the City of Columbia, where the food is remarkably tasty and cheap, and not to mention the adventures I’d randomly come across each and every day. Listed below is a list of things that made me want to stay–a little longer than I originally planned. You can easily go from one location to another It’s easy to transfer from one location to another since Columbia has 2-3 major bus stops that does trips almost 24 /7 not only that everything is accessible, from coffee shops, pharmacies and ATM’s everything is just around the corner and most of them are on 24hour operations too, which makes it comforting to know that you can always run to the nearest shops and get what you need anytime of the day. Food One of the activities I’d enjoy most when traveling is EATING! I love how different flavors would make me smile and satisfied and yes, Columbia has got one of the best street foods. While strolling around the area during sunset, I would usually sit around one of the food stalls and enjoy my meal. Columbia’s Empanada is simply delicious, it’s a mixture of cornmeal stuffed with beans, potato, carrots and other spices then deep fried or baked into perfection.  It’s been my comfort food since day 1. Aside from Empanada, what really amazed me is their selection of fresh fruits that can be found EVERYWHERE, yes you can get the freshest, ripest tropical fruit all over the place, not to mention they’re really cheap too. (image by : Heidi G ) Cheap Accommodations Now who would have thought that you can actually spend a night in Columbia for only $4 – $15? Yes, they’re that cheap, not to mentions their rooms are really clean too which amazed me, who would have thought that you could get both comfort and relaxation at...
