Find Out the Difference between a Traveler and a Tourist

Published by:

Many people make a major mistake while they compare among travelers and tourists. In fact, people go for a holiday or relaxation travels for a few days, weeks are typically tourists. Individuals involved in different professions wish to take a break with their family and go for holidays to some other lands are not travelers but tourists. They visit places, spend times on wonderful sea beaches, explore mountain valleys, enjoy boating on serene lakes and thereafter, as the schedule ends they come back to normal life and join their daily activities.

It is, on the other hand, travelers are those who travel for extended period of time whereas the approach is just not relaxation but exploring their destination places. They just not view but get the details of those places and find out the wonders of the areas. Thus, it comes similar to discovering the places, towns, countryside’s, and importantly, among them a popular travel blogger is Louis Habash. Nonetheless, this must be included here all traveler are not writers or cannot be writers while to turn into a thriving travel writer one must be a traveler.

Interestingly, why all travelers cannot be a writer is because, first of all writing may not be their profession or passion. Secondly, viewing different places, exploring lands, heritage places and expressing them of describing them to someone else in the right style or manner is absolutely different. For Mr. Louis, he is, in essence, a nature lover and he is famous a travel writer. If you don’t have the mind to explore things, a mind’s eye to feel the beauty or the splendor of different landmarks, it is absolutely not possible for you to explain them in easy language or express them to your readers or audience. Obviously, if writing is your profession or in other words you’re a freelance travel writer like Louis Habash, then it’s implied that you need audience.

For Mr. Louis, he is well paid by different publication companies, local papers whilst he has composed numbers of wonderful travel guides and books. These are extremely popular among travel lovers because of his brilliant expressions, completeness of writings, great language and for selection of places. To view his unbelievable collections of photographs you must go through his blogs. The magnificence of his photo gallery speaks about his sense of understanding the nature, the loveliness or various landscapes that are spread over the world.

Thus, whereas an individual visit a certain place or more than that for a specific time with a view to take a solid break or to come out from the monotonous routine life and return home within a preplanned time frame, they are all tourists. For a traveler other than emotional journey, repression of time can never tie them. Louis Habash is a well known travel writer based in Los Angeles, CA. He underwent his degree from SFSU, San Francisco State University. Apart from being a nature lover and photographer he loves outdoors like water sports and hiking.

Getting the Job on Hand and Hobby on the Same Plane

Published by:

Everyone is busy with his or her life and the drive to work more and earn more is surely driving everyone crazy. But besides working, one has to take time out for work out or doing something that would take the stress out a great deal. Indeed, these days people have to spend a lot of time at the desk, whether they are working from their desk at office or at home. In a bid to get out of this, they have to get out of that desk and move out. A few moments of stretching, yoga, or even catching a game of football or basketball in the backyard would also be fine.

Many people feel that it is not right to go for such games because they might have long stopped playing these sports. But truth be spoken, getting back to the games is never too late.

Jon Bunge is one of the most talented professional drivers, who spend his entire working time driving through the states. He spends a long time sitting behind the wheel and so he needs time to stretch his legs now and then and even his back needs exercise.

The need for being physically fit:

Many people around the world have today, realized the importance of going for good health. Just dunking in donuts or diving in to cheesy Mc Burgers or pizzas would seem very convenient. But it is not going to help the health in the long run if you are going to sit and work. Sedentary lifestyle would guarantee a person to gain plenty of weight.

Further, sitting at the desk or behind the wheel or being in the same position, for long would cause people to have cramps and muscle sprain!

This is why people who understand the significance of being fit and agile would try to work out and even follow a strict regime.

Jon Bunge has a great love for the game of football and it is one of those games, which does not allow people to stand in one position for long. Football is a team game, but there are many tricks and styles of kicks, which any one can practice singly. Even randomly striking goals or hitting the ball and trying new styles would keep anyone interested.

The game has plenty of strategies and even if you do not want to play the game for long, you might check out the television and watch the best moves in international matches.

Football brings people together:

It is true that football game, brings people together and people who are even strangers at a pub shall find a lot to discuss in any game. They might analyze the game and these are indeed refreshing to any person.

This is why football has found so many fans worldwide. Though the European tournaments are popular, the American counterparts are also not lagging behind in fame. Call it the fad of the game or the simplicity of the game that today people like Mr. Bunge are hooked on to it.

I Made the Decision to Let Go, But that doesn’t make it Any Easier

Published by:

“A woman is unstoppable after she realises she deserves better”      – Word Porn

My personal adventure of struggles and strengths which ultimately resulted in self-awareness and the development of self-worth is a complex story, full of every emotion you could possibly imagine, leading me to the realisation of self-respect.  The five stages involved in this valuable life lesson have been detailed below.

  1. Infatuation

From that very first time we met, it was clear I was more attracted to him.  Everything about him was practically perfect!  I had visualised us settling down together, dreaming of our long and happy future and basically letting my imagination run wild.  On reflection, I now can see these feelings weren’t reciprocated.   Too caught up in my emotions, I chose to ignore any red flags that were visible.  Looking back I feel like such an idiot, yet I still can’t help but miss him, love him and ache inside as I long for him.

Love at first sight?

Despite being in two serious, long-term relationships where I had considered myself to be in love, the feelings I experienced with him were of a completely different level.  I began to doubt if I had every truly been in love with a man until now.  I told him we fitted together like a little jigsaw piece!  Despite him saying I wasn’t his ‘type’, I often told him he was perfect for me – and I meant it.

  1. Love and Denial

Many times I wonder why my love for this man resulted in me excusing his comments aimed at my weight amongst other things.  I desperately tried to convince myself that perhaps he had low self-esteem as I did and was criticising me to help himself feel better.  I openly explained how his comments made me feel, giving him an insight into my battle with anorexia, hoping he would protect me from further remarks.  He cried and apologised which surely proved he loved me too, I convinced myself.

People will only treat you how you allow them to!

As time passed, I eventually began to listen to my instincts that were screaming this was wrong.  I discovered he had been cheating on me and everything fell into place – he was never interested in me.  I felt like such a fool as the realisation set in.  If he had missed me like I missed him, he would contact me, he would want to see me, and he would respond when I called.  Blinded by love, I made excuses for his lack of contact.  This was the first time I had truly felt rejected and I didn’t want to accept this harsh reality.

He’s just not that into me!

  1. Betrayal

As I bravely approached the topic of the cheating I was literally left speechless at his lack of ability to accept he was wrong.  Instead, he insisted I was to blame for not just ignoring it.  This was the final straw.  No matter how ugly I felt, despite my anorexia and self-hatred, regardless of my sheer disgust at everything about myself I felt strong enough to know that I did not deserve to be treated this way.

Reaching a stage where you can walk away from people who don’t respect you!

I still can’t believe it but I eventually walked away.  I scraped together enough self-respect to believe I deserved better, even with my extremely low opinion of myself.  My heart was shattered into a million pieces at the thought of losing him, even though I knew deep down I never really had him.

I didn’t want to leave him, in fact I genuinely loved him more than he could ever imagine.  But I knew this was the right decision although probably the most difficult.  I felt proud of myself for doing what I knew I had to.

  1. Tears and Mixed Emotions

For endless weeks I sat alone with tears streaming down my cheeks, feeling a whole mixture of emotions.  There was part of me that felt strong, enjoying my new found self-respect.  Feelings of regret and embarrassment were also present, along with deep feelings of hurt, my heart physically aching.  I missed this man so much and I had to use every last part of strength and willpower within me to ensure I didn’t run back to him.  Even until this very day I still find it impossible to forget him, knowing I can’t be with him, but struggling to be without.

Sometimes you have to reach absolute ‘rock bottom’ before you can pick yourself back up!

Having no friends or anyone to confide in has made this whole business of ‘letting go’ even more of a challenge.  The anorexia ensured I had isolated myself, pushing everyone away.  My new best friend became ‘Google’ as I frantically searched for answers that I will never truly have.  I have learned from my internet searches that I have done the right thing and that through time things will become easier.  Apparently there will come a point when I don’t have him on my mind every second of every day and when I don’t feel an eerie emptiness inside my heart.

You would struggle to handle me now, even if instructions were provided!

  1. Finding Positive in Every Negative

She needed a hero, so that’s what she became!

Thanks to my scarily intimate online resources, I have managed to realise that I am not a fool but instead a woman with a big heart.  I have learned to let go of my anger as the only person this negatively impacts is myself.  I am praising myself for being so strong and showing my self-worth, mentally replaying the moment I told him I deserved much better.

Never settle for less than you deserve!  Having self-respect is the most beautiful quality a woman can possess.

Rather than dwell on this heart-breaking, one-sided love which I fully invested in, I am determined to make something positive come of this situation.  Yes before you ask, I did get this idea from my new friend ‘Google’!  I am able to learn and identify where I would make changes if ever in a similar situation.  I am now aware of loves dominating ability to overlook warning signs and I’m clearer about my hopes and desires managing to overpower my willingness and ability to face reality.  These are valuable lessons I will keep with me for the rest of my life.  I feel stronger and will never again accept someone behaving towards me in this way.  From the bottom of my heart, no matter how difficult it gets or how lonely I feel, I can confidently state I would rather be on my own than with someone who doesn’t deserve me.

Once you become aware of your self-worth and value letting go will be the easiest, difficult thing you do.

I hope that after reading my struggles, both past and present, you become aware of the importance of having your own self-worth.  Everything I gained from my endless, lonely online searches has been valuable and will continue to provide guidance throughout my life.  Please never settle for less than you deserve and don’t feel pity for me, this is an essential experience that will be beneficial to me in many ways during my future journeys.

My online search uncovered the exciting Cinemabox  which I really enjoyed and would highly recommend.

PlayBox HD for alternative devices

Published by:

If you keep hearing about PlayBox HD and how people are getting it for their iPhones and Androids, their MACs and laptops and you are feeling left out, all is not lost. Just because you do not have one of those devices does not mean that you cannot gain access to the hottest application around.

If you have a BlackBerry, a Fire Phone, a Fire Stick or the Fire TV then you are in luck, because you can download the PlayBox HD application for all of these devices. There is even a happy bonus here, these are the easiest download processes to go through- it is completely simple and totally straightforward and will have you streaming movies and TV shows in no time.

I’ll give you a quick breakdown of just how easy it is. For your BlackBerry device all you need to do is go into Install Programs, which you will find in your App Manager under settings and just simply switch the “Allow Apps from Other Sources to be Installed” to on. Then download the PlayBox file. That is it!

The Kindle Fire follows the same basic process which requires you to enable the option of installation of applications through your settings and in devices. Then you simply need to install the PlayBox file and you are done. For the Fire Phone it is again the same process but in your settings you will find it under Applications & Parental Controls and it is the “Allow non-Amazon app installation” that you need to enable. Once you have done that you just need to download and install PlayBox.

Of all of these installations you will find the Fire TV is the most complicated, yet still easy as can be. In your settings you will find system and then Developer Options once in there you will see ADB Debugging- you need to enable that. Then download ADBFire as well as FireBox to your computer. Run ADBFire and type in the IP address of your Fire TV (you can find that in settings > system > about > network) and then install the FireBox file. You will then receive a pop up that tells you that you need to update the app, just hit Cancel.  You are now free to scroll through a bounty of movies and television shows to choose from!

Remember, while this might seem like a pain in the backside but this process does not actually take very long, it is fairly straightforward and considering the application is entirely free it is definitely worth the hassle. I think you will agree once you have had the chance to enjoy free movies and TV shows at your fingertips.

A Small Guide to Buying Kentucky Derby Tickets

Published by:

Some people think that it is not possible to get the Kentucky Derby Tickets unless you were a high profile personal like a celebrity or top shot businessman. Some also believe that the people who are somehow related to the horse racing business can get the tickets easily. There was also the time when you had to send a letter to the address of Churchill Downs and request for the tickets. But you had to be very lucky in order to get the tickets that way. There were only very few who were given the tickets in this manner. Everyone else’s requests were rejected.

 

Thankfully, the things have changed today. You don’t have to do this anymore to get the tickets. In fact, it has become extremely easy to buy the tickets for this event. For many people who believed it was not possible to get the tickets at all it is in fact relatively much easier. But before you buy the ticket what you really need to know is how much can you actually spend on the tickets. There are different options at different prices. If you want to go with the most basic Kentucky Derby ticket then you will get general admission to the infield. From here you can view the race tracks. However, you can watch the race on the large screens. What’s great is that the Churchill Downs now boasts of the high-quality, 4K resolution screens.

The tickets to this area costs $50 (or more if you choose additional services). What’s even better is that the ticket is usually available even at the last minute. This means that you don’t have to worry about the advanced booking. This place could get a little crammed. But people say that it is a real party out there.

You can also buy the premium tickets. The box ticket prices are quite high (as high as a few thousand dollars). But you will be able to see the race track directly. These premium tickets get sold pretty fast and the price also increases as the number of tickets goes down. So, you will need to buy well in advance in order to make sure you get the ticket and also you save money.

If you are thinking about buying the ticket in advance, you should find a broker. Thanks to internet, we have the brokers available online as well. In fact, there are some websites from where you can buy the Kentucky Derby 2017 premium tickets at the discounted prices. This means that even if you stay in another country and are planning to come over for the event you can book the ticket in advance.

It would be a great idea to look at the overview of the seating arrangements to make your choice. Even the premium tickets are available in a price range. Take a look at the different options available and buy the ticket according to your budget.

Plan the transportation and accommodation beforehand. This will ensure that you have a wonderful experience of Kentucky Derby. Check this website: www.SeatHub.com to find out more.
