Come Along With Us On Our Journey

 

COME ALONG WITH US ON OUR JOURNEY BECAUSE TRAVELLING IS AN ADVENTURE!!

safe and healthy journey

It would be so great if you could come along with us on our journey!

Our plan is to visit as many places as we can on our travels around the world!

Our “journey plan” is currently very open and we have not yet decided where our first stop should be.  North America…South America…Europe…Asia…Africa…Australia…Antartica

Our travels should realistically begin in North America, although we have lived and travelled quite a bit there.  We have travelled to Florida, Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Tennessee, and others.

So, perhaps the next place to visit should be somewhere close but not too close…perhaps South America or Central America.

Belize would be an interesting place to visit.  It is an English speaking country, so it would be easier for most travellers to communicate more easily.

The people of Belize wear western clothing and can be fairly conservative in the way they dress and behave. In cities long pants and long-sleeved shirts are common for most occasions, but on weekends and along the beaches shorts and short-sleeve shirts are popular.

There are few dress or behavioral restrictions in Belize. Many tourists visit the country solely for the beaches so scantily clad dress is commonly accepted. If visiting religious sites, such as churches, more formal dress is required as long pants and covering at least your shoulders is expected. The same requirements can also be extended to nice restaurants and hotels away from the beaches. Sunbathing naked or women sunbathing topless is often restricted so check with locals before doing so.  Safari the Globe

Travel

Travelling is an Adventure!  There are so many places I have been, but many more that I have not but I am looking forward to changing that.  South America is one continent I plan on visiting very soon.  Ecuador, Chile, Uruguay…

If you love to travel as much as I do, you have the whole world in front of you from which to choose.  And if you are also thinking about working at the same time, the best thing to consider is online marketing since it does not tie you down and can be done part time.  Check out this because they will give you all the help you need:  http://www.nag.peakreturns.com

Healthy Eating

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Being a healthy eater requires you to become both
educated and smart about what healthy eating
actually is. Being food smart isn’t about
learning to calculate grams or fat, or is it
about studying labels and counting calories.

Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate
eating, consisting of healthy meals at least
three times per day. Healthy eaters eat many
different types of foods, not limiting themselves
to one specific food type or food group.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of leeway. You
might eat too much or not enough, consume
foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious.
However, you should always fuel your body and
your brain regularly with enough food to keep
both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver. Healthy
eaters have learned to take care of themselves
and their eating with sound judgement and making
wise decisions. Healthy eaters are always aware
of what they eat, and know the effect that it
will have on their bodies.

When someone is unable to take control of their
eating, they are also likely to get out of control
with other aspects of life as well. They could
end up spending too much, talking too much, even
going to bed later and later.

You should always remember that restricting food
in any way is always a bad thing. Healthy eating
is a way of life, something that you can do to
enhance your body or your lifestyle. If you’ve
thought about making your life better, healthy
eating is just the place to start. You’ll make
life easier for yourself, those around you, and
even your family.

You should also consider adding some good
supplements to your daily routine.  One very
good one I have been taking is Xango juice.

(You’ve heard it before and it’s not going anywhere. Your mom was right.)

Fruits and veggies provide the vitamins and nutrients necessary to sustain a vigorous and long life, providing a wide array of health benefits.

Snowy Sunday Afternoon in Spring

A snowy Sunday afternoon in Spring

In my opinion, we should not be having cold or snow today, but we are!  To me, Spring is a time to be out and about, walking, hiking, biking…all those outdoor type activities.  Instead, because it is cold and windy, I will stay home and play catch up on some computer work, housework…but hey, I may even turn on the oven and bake something.  It is important to keep the house warm, and this is certainly a good smelling, good tasting thing to do!

Since my birthday is in two days, I am thinking about molten lava cakes.  I got some nice,  new ramekins of a good size 9 inches, which would be a very good dish to cook the cakes in.  Mmm, getting hungry thinking about it 🙂

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year with the buds popping out on trees, and early Spring flowers peeping from the ground.  And in some places you may even see some flowers peeping from the snowy ground 🙂

But, thinking about flowers and warm weather has distracted me.  I should be in the kitchen warming up the house…don’t you think??

Have a great day, and we will chat again soon!  🙂
