Hello, everyone!  How was you summer vacation? I am sure y’all had a wonderful vacation with your family before back to school hurdles set in.  As for my family and I, we had a week-long vacation out of state.  Though camping was one in our to-do list this summer, we didn’t go because it’s very hot.  We just went on nature adventure which my darling daughter loves a lot also.

Road travel is sometimes a hassle if you don’t know what to do ahead of time.  If you don’t plan your travel really well, chances are, your vacation will be full of unexpected situations and conflicts.  The fun and enjoyment will be compromised.  So it is recommendable to check online for great deals on tickets, hotel accommodation, and things to do just in case you are not quite familiar with the destination.  Comparing rates is a good thing.  This way, you will be able to save money and get more from the money you spend on your vacation.

If you find Groupon things to do recommendations very helpful, I do too.  Groupon is one of the many online resources where you can get discounts and coupons on various products, services, leisure activities, and things to do near you.  Whether you travel out of state or just decide to have a stay-cation, you can always find great deals or discounts on tickets to local attractions, movie theaters, family fun activities, and restaurants. Saving money while on stay-cation is great, right?  Who would not want that?

Travel Safety: Know Before You Go

road-travel

Traveling can be fun and exciting, however, travel safety is extremely important. Prior to leaving, become familiar with the laws and customs that govern your destination. This is especially important if your travels will take you overseas. The laws of other countries are often markedly different from those of the United States. Whether you are traveling abroad, or just to the next state, consideration should always be taken regarding your travel destination. Know before you go.

Plan with Flexibility

If you plan on doing the driving, make sure that you’re aware of road conditions. It may even be a good idea to plan an alternative route just in case poor weather conditions or road conditions become a problem. The more steps you take to prepare for the unexpected, the more peace of mind you will have should a catastrophe occur.

Be Prepared for Emergencies

You might consider getting a roadside service plan if you don’t already have one. If something happens to your vehicle it’s no fun being stranded for hours wondering when and how you are going to get out of your jam. Roadside service can be that friend you can call in the middle of the night, anywhere, that will help you in a tight spot.

Travel Safety and Guns

If you choose to carry a firearm become familiar with all documents that you will need to carry one legally. It can’t hurt to familiarize yourself with gun laws in your travel destination as well. If you don’t do your research you’re asking for trouble. You need to know if it’s okay to store that glock magazine sleeve on your dash before you try it. A little prior knowledge can save you headaches and even a run-in with the law.

Traveling is fun and exciting. Taking a little extra time to become familiar with the place you are travelling to, and a preparing for the unexpected, as much as possible, are good ways to create more peace of mind and awareness: which are both steps that increase travel safety. Know before you go.

Vacation In Arkansas – Crater of Diamonds State Park

Hello everyone!  Happy September.  How’s it going? I am sure each and everyone of you had a wonderful summer vacation. Where did y’all go? Did you travel overseas or had a stay-cation?  Did you to the beach or to an adventurous escapade? Whatever it was, the most important about these vacations was the excitement, enjoyment, experience, and the happy memories spent together with the family.

My family and I had a great summer vacation.  Since only me and my daughter traveled overseas for a long vacation in the Philippines, we had to travel together – the three of us.  We went to Arkansas and Oklahoma last month.

It was a week long vacation traveling in those two beautiful state.  We dug for gemstones at The Crate of Diamonds State Park in Murfressboro and at the Crystal Mines in Mount Ida, Arkansas.  We didn’t find diamonds though.  Only a few loose gemstones mostly jasper. But it was a nice experience.  The Crater of Diamonds mining area is huge.  Hard to decide which spot is a lucky spot to dig. 🙂

You can rent a bucket, shovel, and two sifters for $35/whole day.  You can look for diamonds as long as you want in the mine.  Before returning the tools, you have to wash them thoroughly.  They said that the best probability to find diamonds is to go there after the rain.

We stayed at Yellow Diamond Inn in Murfreesboro.  Decent hotel room and affordable room rates.  The town’s very quiet at night.  There are a few good restaurants or diner around.  Agaves Mexican Restaurant and a cafe near downtown.  My daughter and I enjoyed visiting the shops in downtown.  I bought a few kids clothing from a thrift store there.

After shopping in downtown, I thought of taking my darling daughter to the pool in the Crater of Diamonds State Park.  But we got there two hours before closing (at 6:00 P.M.) and the staff said they’re not selling tickets anymore because they’re closing the pool due to thunder warning.  So we just drove back to the hotel and decided to relax in their pool instead.

If you want to have an adventure in Arkansas, don’t forget to visit the The Crater of Diamonds State Park.

Seeking Plastic Surgery Abroad

surgeons

Few months ago, a friend’s father was seriously burnt and was admitted to the hospital for treatment. His father wanted to burn the pile of rubbish in one corner of the factory’s compound. The pile of rubbish was burning very slowly and he thought the fire was going to go out. Without realizing the danger, he went to get a can of remaining petrol from the store room and poured it on the pile of rubbish. All of a sudden, the fire burst out and spread up to him and his chest, arms, face, hair. Even his shirt was burnt. His scream was heard by his son who immediately rushed out to find his father rolling on the ground and immediately called the ambulance.

His father has been discharged from the hospital and has recovered from the ordeal of the fire accident. But the scars on his face and arms are quite unsightly and his family members are encouraging him to do plastic surgery. Being a businessman, he understands that it can be quite unpleasant for him and his clients to see his scars on his face.
My friend and his siblings are encouraging their father to take time off for a holiday. After all, he has been working very hard all these years. My friend suggested a holiday plus medical trip for his father and he mentioned 2 places in particular. The mother has a sister staying in Phuket and the father has a brother staying in South Korea. The parents can visit the aunt in Phuket and at the same time seek plastic surgery in Thailand. They can stay with their aunt and save on the hotel expenses. Plus, they will not be alone in a foreign land. Or they can choose to visit their uncle who is residing in South Korea and seek plastic surgery in South Korea. South Korea is well-known for plastic surgery and their uncle will be very happy to play host to them after all these years.

The parents agreed that what the son suggested sounds good to them. Meanwhile, they will have to get more details through medicaldeparture.com concerning the doctors and clinics and also the treatment concerned. After that, they will have to decide whether it is Thailand or South Korea. Both the aunt and uncle are happy to welcome them anytime. Whichever place they choose, my friend and his siblings will be comforted to know that their parents will not be alone.
