Statistics always make things sound more real. 10,000 people move every week, 20% of people love to travel. See, I made those up. But you believed it! Writing shouldn’t be about numbers, it should be about the heart.
So here is something you should know; life is happening now. Doesn’t matter how long you have left to live, it still goes on at the moment. So focusing on the past and mistakes you have made won’t change anything. You need to focus on the now. Travel, make new friends, do things now and don’t wait for tomorrow.
The future is now. Doesn’t matter how hard you work for your future if you aren’t going to enjoy it. The days move on and each day lost won’t be recovered. So here is a chance to focus on what you want, and get it in the now.
Every traveler must have a packing list, things you must have on every travel. Here is a few of my priorities.
1. Comfortable walking shoes
2. A carry on bag you can fit with as much as possible and still carry
3. Entertainment; be it novels, music, friends- we all need a distraction.
4. Pain killers (for those days when you just don’t feel so well)
5. warm clothes. You wouldn’t want to freeze in the middle of nowhere.
6. Needle and thread- for wardrobe disasters and emergencies
I was thinking recently that I am really tired and worn out and need a holiday. So I figured why not plan something really fun and pocket friendly because its an impulse and I didnt wanna spend too much.
So I started to look up a few things to do. A few were a bit too expensive and others a bit within my comfort zone.
Here is my little fun weekend plan:
` Quad Biking. Well who says only kids get to ride around and have fun? It could be a fun couple getaway to go let off some steam. Race around, find things for the loser to do, knock each other (not so hard of course)
`Bungee Jumping. This is a nice way to jump off a cliff together. You can hold each other, scream, and laugh your way to the bottom right above the water.
`White water rafting There is living on the edge then there is the rafting. Here is a chance to get wet together, scream together, and have a good time.
`Amusement Park. I feel like my childhood run away. so what am gonna do is go on a bumper car, pirate ship, octopus, and enjoy myself for a day!!
Definitely need a holiday. For those that want to organize a laid back weekend with Sabili, contact us here.
Ever been in a situation where you are trying to have a conversation with someone but neither of you understands the other? You just reached an impasse. Rather than give up, find new ways to express yourself. You will be surprised how much fun you have!
Use a lot of gestures instead of words, like point at yourself and say name, then point at other person. Use drinking motion when thirsty, make a face, roll your eyes, shake your head. If you think it, do it! That way you are at least trying to be understood.
If you have to, use a thick accent. If you are in a foreign country use random funny phrases you know from that language so that you can communicate. Use cliche phases. Think ‘Mamma mia! ‘ If per chance you are in France, use thick accents like Inspector Whatshisname in Pink Panther. Reinvent yourself.
Have you seen babies talking on and on even when its clear you don’t understand them? They have the right idea. Think different. You will be surprised. Miscommunication can result in the best conversation you ever had. Or didn’t have .
Whether its to the popular Cayman Islands or somewhere small like Ssese Islands every person has that Island experience they want. To be at peace with the world and just walk along the shores with friends or loved ones. It’s everything you need to experience for yourself.
Every once in a while we crave adventure. Traveling through the wild just to see nature and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. You need to plan a safari trip and go camping. It will definitely be the ride of your life.
Roller coaster ride
Be it rafting, bungee jumping, sea diving, if you need a thrill you need adventure like never before. Do one of these and you will have experiences to last a lifetime.
Retirement is one of those chances you have to reinvent yourself. If before you didn’t have time to travel, play, hang with friends, suddenly you have time to do everything you had been putting off. Here are a few tips on where to go;
“You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.”
― Andy Warhol
