Tours Enjoyed By Kingston and Frank

Kingston Canoes The Wanganui River

 
Photo from Kingston river tripI don’t have my motorcycle licence so I left that for Frank. I briefly thought about taking flying lessons in Taupo, I do want to learn to fly – but it’ll have to wait. But look what i discovered; can you imagine how beautiful it is to drift along through one of New Zealand’s national parks surrounded by amazing native trees, plants and flowers? Well let me tell you that my trip with Yeti Tours in Ohakune was a highlight of my time in New Zealand! I chose the guided tour where they look after everything for you. We did pass another group that just hired canoes from Yeti but I feel my choice was better – you can’t beat local knowledge eh! Also having all your meals cooked for you just makes it feel more like a holiday – to me anyway. I would highly recommend this type of tour, you do not need to be very fit either, most of the time the current keeps you moving. There are a few spots where you need to put in a burst though so you can’t expect an armchair ride haha.

 

Franklin Does A Motorbike Tour

As I mentioned above I don’t have my licence, however Frank doesn’t like writing so I’ll give you a second hand view of his trip. He chose MCR motorcycle tours to go with because they have older style “cool bikes”. He chose a Triumph T100 Bonneville as his weapon of choice and left the garden city Christchurch (Hagley park was full of spring flowers) well equipped with a GPS to explore SOME (Its huge) of the open space in the lower part of the South Island. One thing Frank mentioned is the open smooth roads are almost mesmerizing and he had to keep reminding himself that there are risks riding a bike :-). Queenstown was a highlight as was Te Anau – he likes lakes haha.

Anyway once I convince my mate to actually write something; we may get a few more details. Thanks for reading.

Classical Flower Arrangement

The Mozart Collection

When it comes to arranging flowers; modern is not always best! Sometimes a classical approach to the art is more appropriate. This what a classical person like Mozart would like to see in a flower arrangement? He certainly would not approve of the modern glitzy foil covered colored boxes that are often used today. I love this image, it symbolizes exactly what i am talking about. A single flower variety used in a mass colourful arrangement often gives a more opulent and pleasing impression. AFD offers a range of online flowers for australia delivery in both modern and classical style

Mozart Collection Flowers

FloristNZ is a New Zealand Online Flower Delivery website with a beautiful range of classical and modern style arrangements to suit any occasion. To state the obvious there are many reasons to send someone flowers. But did you know that it has been proven to actually help when someone is down or feeling sick.  In a study looking at the responce to recieving gifts ( full source here ScienceBlogs.com )

  • 147 women were found via supermarket ads.
  • Study about “normal moods during the day.”
  • Given 1 of ten gifts – not told which though.
  • They were phoned to assess their life satisfaction or mood.
  • Ten days later, 2 peopled delivered the gift.
  • Flowers to One third.
  • Fruit Gift Basket to One third.
  • A candle to One third
  1. A group of impartial volunteers chose the gifts to be of equal value and appeal.
  2. The fear some have of weight gain kept chocolate out of the gift choices.
  3. One tester gave the gift, and the other noted their reaction.
  4. The tester had no idea which of the items a person was going to receive.

Although everyone did smile with most of the gifts, there were much higher real smiles from the flower bouquets than any other category…….

In a subsequent test

  • A person stood inside an elevator and handed a flower, pen, or no gift to people as they entered.
  • When they were given nothing;  only 50% of the time the tester was holding a wicker flower gift basket.
  • They also initiated a conversation.
  • 60 men and 62 ladies entered the lift.
  • A 2nd tester noted 4 different things, did they:
  1. Smile.
  2. Stand close
  3. Speak
  4. look

at the tester. These 4 observations were collated into a score from 0 to 9.
Both sexes scored much higher in social behavior if they received flowers compared not receiving a gift or being given a pen.
Noteworthy is that the lowest scores were received when flowers were seen but not given – So being given flowers affects social behavior and mood, not just the sight of them.

Flowers make you happier

Flowers make you happy

A final study, a group of women in rest homes received one, two or three flower bouquets over 2 weeks. They were then interviewed before and after the experiment

women who received the flowers had much better moods after the 2 weeks. The level of happiness or lack of depression directly correlated to the number of bouquets they were given – the more the happier!

Tips To Help Your Travels Go Smoothly

Rushing your travel plans can lead to a lot of mistakes. You will need to have everything in order before you leave. This piece is meant to provide useful insights that can be applied to your next trip.

If you are traveling to a country that require vaccinations, carry along proof that you received all of the required shots. This is important when you attempt to enter or exit a country, and may even be an issue when you are traveling between cities within a country. Without the certificate, there isn’t a way to know if you’ve been vaccinated, and you could end up in quarantine.

To keep traveling expense within budget, try making them as far ahead as you can. Regardless of what your vacation costs, you usually get a better price if you pay early. By reducing the number of last-minute purchases, your travel budget will go further.

Check the services that are available, beforehand. Some of them will offer charter flights that you can’t see when searching for deals, and they might be able to get you a good price.

To enhance your personal safety in hotels, bring along a doorstopper. Greater security can help you sleep better. Put a doorstop in your door to prevent it from being opened.

Are you heading to a small airport? Look at the website to understand which airlines operate there. Some small airports may have charters with better deals.

Make sure you take clothespins with you when travelling. While not on your typical travel list, a handful of clothespins can prove very useful.

Bring along things to keep your toddler busy. Try to bring some of your child’s favorite toys. It is also a good idea to buy a new toy just for the trip, as it will provide a little novelty and help keep a small child’s attention.

Purchase tickets on the Internet in advance and print them at home when you have a specific destination, like a theme park, in mind. Even if there’s a fee, it is very much worth it to be able to skip the long lines for purchasing tickets at the venue. You can also often skip the admissions line altogether.

You will not save much space, plus, many of these items are overpriced. Fold your clothes with a more efficient technique when you are packing them. Following these tips can help you find even more room in your bags.

Use hotel ice for having filtered water for your coffee in the morning. The ice often tastes much better than hotel tap water, so just fill the bucket before you go to bed so it can melt as you sleep. When you awaken, you can use good water for your coffee.

Make sure you inquire about possible renovation dates when reserving a room at a hotel. You do not want to awake to the sounds of construction while on vacation. There really isn’t much a hotel can do for you during the times they renovate, so you are probably better off choosing another hotel during those dates.

Make sure you check out social websites or forums geared toward travelers. A great way to prepare for any trip is to socialize on these forums and ask questions and read stories from other travelers. You will make new acquaintances, learn from their mistakes and get terrific insights on your destination.

Rush Hour

One of the first things you should do before traveling to a foreign country is to determine whether or not you must have a visa. Make sure to get your applications in early, since paperwork can take awhile to process. If you do not have a visa and your destination requires it, then you will not be able to enter.

Plan your trip around rush hour. Take a break from driving if rush hour hits. Rush hour is a great time to grab a bite to eat or get out and stretch your legs.

Make sure your passport hasn’t expired. Review passport rules for the country you are visiting. Some of them have very strict guidelines that must be followed. If your passport expires within a specified time frame, you may not be able to enter the country. Time frames can run anywhere from three months to a year.

If you are going to be renting a car, make sure you review your auto insurance policy prior to leaving home. You might not need any extra insurance even though rental car agents may try to sell you more. In many cases, you car insurance coverage gives you basic coverage to handle third party incidents. Look into your own policy before leaving, as it can be very important later.

Cash your checks in advance as they may not be accepted. Even though traveler’s checks are widely accepted, they are not that easy to use. You may get shorted when you use them; so, have them converted to local money prior to shopping.

A dream vacation may go belly up if time isn’t taken to research prior to planning. Scour the Internet for reviews from folks who’ve already been where you’re going. Their experience can help you avoid staying in a dangerous town or seedy hotel.

Bring along an extra passport photo. If you lose you passport or it gets stolen, replacement can take a while. Keeping a spare photo with you will speed up the process. You should also carry any needed documentation to help you get going again.

It can be frustrating if you have problems with the travel plans. You may miss your flight or not get the car you reserved. The discussion is between you and an employee that likely did not make the error. Of course, you both want to solve the issues, but tempers can easily flare under this circumstance. Keep your cool and remain polite. Honey attracts more flies than vinegar.

If you want to experience a fun weekend getaway or a great day trip, it’s not always necessary to travel far afield. Your home state or neighboring ones can offer great getaways at a fraction of the cost. Save on travel expenses by staying local and supporting local businesses. There can be some really amazing trips just a quick drive away.

When you’re planning a vacation, always take the weather into consideration. Make sure you look at the weather forecast for your intended destination. Freezing rain on a Florida beach, or unseasonal sunshine on an Aspen ski trip, will ruin the best laid travel plans.

Always pack bottled water when going overseas. Because other countries do not purify their water, you can get many illnesses from drinking it. Also used the bottled water when brushing your teeth. Tap water can still make you sick this way.

What can you do to make your next trip incredible? The article you have now read is a good first step, but certainly not the only source of good travel ideas. Take some notes and get ready for your next trip. If implemented, these tips will improve the quality of your trip.

Always pack bottled water when going overseas. Many countries have non-purified drinking water that can cause various illnesses. You should even use your bottled water when brushing your teeth. It’s possible you can get ill from using the tap water in that fashion.

Plan A Weekend Trip With Easy To Use Information

Traveling is a great way to better your life and perspectives. However, there are downsides to traveling. This article will provide you with a wide range of tips to make the most out of your travel experiences.

When you are traveling in unfamiliar locations, be sure to watch for scammers posing as government officials trying to take advantage of you. Do not give anyone your actual passport. If they are insistent about detaining you, ask to walk to the office. Don’t ride with someone you don’t know.

When going abroad, use ATMs to get some cash instead of using an exchange service. Banks will get better rates for exchanging currencies than you would be able to get. You may find significant savings through the course of your trip.

Anytime you are going to be driving to a different city before going on a cruise, check to see if there is a hotel that has fee parking, and get there the night before. Ask the staff of the hotel if there are any unpublished parking deals.

Always keep your essential items close to you when traveling. If you have a purse with you, keep it close to your body at all times. Also avoid pocketbooks which are easily opened by others on a busy street or subway. When buying a travel bag, keep this in mind.

You must plan ahead if you are going to fly. It can be difficult navigating traffic in big cities, where many airports are located. Dealing with rush hour traffic will only make it worse. Pack your suitcase beforehand to save time. It is crucial to have everything planned out in advance. If you miss your flight, you will have to take a later one. This might create problems with your itinerary.

Often, when we leave home, we end up taking much of home with us. To make sure you don’t lug more than is needed, only bring along the basic toiletries. Jot down those toiletries use typically use each day. Pack what you know you need to get through the trip.

Always remember to wear light, comfy shoes for air travel – shoes which you can slip off easily. Security procedures require you to take your shoes off. Comfort is extremely important. Do not worry about serious foot support; you will be doing a lot more sitting than walking when you travel by air. Sandals or flip-flops are footwear that is ideal for air travel.

Always write down everything you need to pack in the form of a list. Anywhere from a week to a few months before you go on your trip, make a list of the things you absolutely need to pack. If you are delayed in beginning your packing, having a comprehensive list will make the task quicker, easier, and with less clutter.

Keep everything organized. Avoid wasted time spent getting all your travel necessities together. Purchase a plastic bin and keep everything you need for travel in one spot. You can place them under your bed or in a closet.

If you have a motorcycle license, this vehicle can be great for taking day trips or road trips. Motorcycles are gas efficient, and enjoying the ride can put you on the right track. It can be a wonderful experience.

You should always have a good photo of your child on you when you travel with him or her, just in case the two of you get separated. Losing your child can be a scary prospect. Though it certainly feels devastating, it is a reality for many. Having a photo you can show people immediately if the child becomes lost could wind up making a substantial difference in getting them back quickly.

Join travel websites to help you get the most out of your next trip. Locating a group of fellow travelers to socialize and share experiences with gives you a great way to research an upcoming trip. You can learn what NOT to do on your travels, and you may even pick up a new friend in the process!

Almost everyone needs, or wants, to travel at some point in their life. Travel can be better if it is properly planned. The advice in the article above will help you make the most out of your adventure.

Hotel staff like room service staff and the bell hop are paid meager salaries and tips are very much appreciated. You don’t have to overdo it, though, just a simple dollar per bag and no more than five dollars a day for the housekeeper is adequate enough. If you can tip these people appropriately, you will find that you will have a better relationship with the hotel staff during your stay.

Advice That Will Help You With Your Travels

While a vacation is intended to be relaxing, traveling can sometimes cause unnecessary stress. A vacation that is not carefully planned can be disastrous. To get more out of your future travel plans, read below.

Don’t bring any unnecessary valuables with you. Having valuable items with you on a trip is just asking to have them lost or stolen.

Watch out for faux cops or faux government officials in foreign countries, as they may be criminals. You must not give anyone your original passport; it may be gone for good if you do. If you are made to go to an office, do so by foot. Don’t ride with someone you don’t know.

Learn about your destination. Buy a comprehensive map of where you are going, study the environment, and research the attractions being offered there. It will be easier for you to get around when you know about the area.

Try being a little flexible concerning your vacation destination. Favorite vacation spots may be fun, but you can make your vacation more interesting and memorable if you vary your destination. Additionally, selecting a different destination can be key to saving a little money when the vacation budget is tight.

When traveling in other countries, be wary of what taxis you get into. Make sure any taxi you get into is legitimate. It is not hard to put up a taxi sign on a car; if you get into the wrong vehicle, you don’t know where you will end up.

If you want to be with your pet, find a travel destination where you can take it! Pet-friendly vacations are growing more and more popular, and some places offer deals for pet lovers. You will find that while many chain hotels allow pets, you can even take them to some Las Vegas casino hotels and on some cruises. Just make sure that where ever you go, your pal is allowed.

A motorcycle is a great way to go on a road trip. A motorcycle moves quickly, has great gas efficiency, and will make your trip more fun, in general. It can be awesome to travel this way.

Be sure to check the room’s alarm clock. Whether the previous occupant was a very early riser, or the kids thought it would be a fun prank to set the alarm to scare the next occupant, you don’t want to be rudely awakened. Don’t let this bother you on your first day in town!

Ask about renovations when reserving your room. It is very frustrating to be awoken from your slumber early due to construction equipment while on vacation. If you find out that a renovation is upcoming, either change the dates of your stay or go somewhere else.

Cookie Sheets

Bring along a door stopper to provide an extra measure of safety when you stay in a hotel. Sometimes, especially in areas of higher crime such as developing countries, you may want a little extra security for your hotel room. If you don’t find a chain or deadbolt on the door, put a small doorstop beneath the door at bedtime.

If you are taking a road trip with kids, take along a couple cookie sheets. These cookie sheets can be a flat surface to put cards or coloring books on. Little kids can be entertained with some magnetic numbers and letters.

Write reminders for yourself. You may be likely to lose notes jotted down on paper, but notes written on a mirror with a dry erase pen are easy to see. These markers clean up easily with any type of wipe, meaning this method of remembering is very quick and easy.

If you are traveling with a toddler, make sure they have something to occupy them. Take a few of their their favorite toys. You might want to purchase a new item for this trip to bring some novelty to the adventure and ensure more time is occupied by the toddler.

See if you can get the local rate at a hotel when traveling. Hotels want to book all their rooms, so they will offers discounts to locals. If you happen to know someone who lives where you are traveling, see if they can help you find a good local hotel rate. This will help save money.

Service Stations

Hotel etiquette calls for tipping the bellhop and housekeeping staff. People generally recommend a buck per bag for the bellhop and $2-5 per day for the maid. If you tip well, you are more likely to get good service and be on good terms with hotel staff during your stay.

If you are going on a road trip, factor in time for service stops. If you need service while taking a road trip, it can be hard to find. Plan your route and while doing so look for viable service stations that can handle maintenance on your vehicle. Make sure you keep the numbers for a few different service stations along the way just in case you need to be towed.

If you don’t sleep deeply, earplugs are a good thing to have. Sometimes walls in hotels are really thin. Earplugs can help you sleep well by allowing you to block out everything around you.

A luggage tag isn’t always enough. You also should place ID inside the bags. Outside tags are easily ripped off. Placing identification and contact information inside your luggage can ensure that it is returned to you in the event it becomes separated from the luggage tag.

If you want to experience a fun weekend getaway or a great day trip, it’s not always necessary to travel far afield. There are plenty of vacation spots in your state or perhaps one that is close by. Your travel expenses can be lower if you support local businesses by staying close to home. Many great places to visit are right in your own ‘backyard’.

Though travel should be relaxing and fun, it can easily become burdensome without some proper learning beforehand. The ideas presented are going to help you have a much more pleasurable traveling experience.

When out and about on vacation, bring the hotel’s business card (or something with their name on it) with you. If you are walking around and about on the local streets and get lost, you will have this business card to show people who don’t understand your language. This is great as well for those that do not have a firm grasp of the language.

Ditch The Bad Vacations With These Travel Tips

Whether you plan to travel by plane, automobile or train, the guidance found in this piece will be of great use. The following advice will help you get started.

Rather than exchanging cash for local currency while traveling in different countries, withdraw some pocket money from an ATM. The banks generally have access to superior exchange rates. This may save you money later on.

Get vaccinations in advance and bring your documentation after doing so. This is important anytime you try to enter a country or when it is time to leave, as well as traveling between some cities in the country. Otherwise, you just have your word that you completed the requirements, and that just isn’t good enough.

Don’t take any unnecessary valuables with you on your trip. If you decide to bring valuables, you could lose them, or they could even be stolen.

When you are visiting a hotel abroad, you may feel less than secure in the new environment. Bring a doorstop along to assuage your concerns about unwanted entry. They are small and easy to pack. They also do a great job keeping a door closed.

Sign up to get updates on travel prices. Some websites will watch prices for you. When the prices of the hotel or airfares drop to the level of your choosing, the website will alert you with an email about the change. This will prevent you from having to check prices every day.

Arriving the night before is essential. Staying over at a hotel that customarily allows their patrons to leave their vehicles there during their cruise is a smart move. If you cannot find any details about parking, ask the hotel staff what their policy is.

Luggage Tag

If you are thinking about going to a specific place that sells tickets, head to its website and see if it is possible to buy and print tickets from there. You will generally pay a nominal fee for this service, but you won’t have to wait in ticket lines when you arrive. If the park uses a timed entry system, you won’t need to wait in line to enter, either.

While you should always have a luggage tag on the outside of your bags, be sure to place identification inside as well. It’s easy for a luggage tag to fall of if it’s hanging off your luggage. Make sure that your identifications are on your bag so that you do not lose it.

Many stores charge too much for these types of products. Try out some folding techniques which will safe space and allow you to take less baggage along with you. Trying out different folding techniques will allow more to fit in your bag.

Research ahead of booking. Hunt down websites that feature user reviews of anything you might be personally interested in. Ask your friends and family for advice on destinations. You can have realistic expectations when you do your homework, which makes your time at that destination all the better.

When traveling abroad, it is a good idea to find out what kind of insurance coverage you are already offered by your credit card companies. For example, you may enjoy coverage for flights that get cancelled, as long as they were charged to your card. Doing a bit of research before leaving is a good idea.

A motorcycle provides an excellent travel method for day trips or road trips if a person has a license for such a vehicle. Saving money on gas, getting around quickly while enjoying the scenery is a great way to kick off any trip. It’s a great experience.

When you go on a trip, you may want to bring some of home along with you. Limit yourself to essential toiletry products. Write down which toiletries you use religiously and would not want to be without. Only pack the most important one.

If you’re leaving your car at the airport while you’re away, reserve your spot in advance if possible. Parking can be more expensive when booked the day of the flight. If you live near the airport, a taxi can be much cheaper than airport parking.

Booking trips online is like one-stop shopping for vacation planning. Travel websites require little effort from your part, when it comes to planning your trip. Many of these sites enable you to simultaneously book your flight, lodgings and a rental car. Many of these sites offer package deals that can save you a lot of money. Many travel sites even guide you toward finding discounts.

Remember to carry a book of matches or a business card from the hotel your are staying at with you at all times. This one little item can save you and get you back to where you need to be in case you get lost in a foreign land. It is especially useful for anyone without a firm grip on the language.

One thing to remember when traveling to other countries is the quality of water may be lacking; therefore, it is wise to pack some bottled water to take on your trip. You can contract a variety of illnesses by drinking the unpurified water of other countries. Bottled water is important even for tooth brushing purposes. This is one subtle way that tap water can make you sick.

If you’re going to another country, make up some cards that state any food allergies that you have in the language of the country you are visiting. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, let servers know what you’re able to eat and not eat. These cards will ensure a more pleasurable eating experience when you’re away.

Many stores charge too much for these types of products. Instead, try different, space efficient folding techniques for packing clothes. These minimizing tricks will allow you to pack more in a smaller space.

When flying, give your child a seat off the aisle, when possible. Put yourself or another responsible adult between your child and the aisle. Children may hurt themselves if they decide to reach into the aisle while a cart comes through. Plus, if you are sitting on the aisle, your child won’t be able to escape.

If your plane or bus ride is very long, get up and walk around at least once every hour. Just walk around the cabin or go to the bathroom. Sitting for too long is not only bad for your muscles, but it can cause blood clots.

Make your trip green by using eco-friendly services. A lot of hotels have a program for reusing linens, have lighting that is energy efficient, put recycling bins out for guests to use, utilize alternative sources for energy, and feature plumbing with low flow. Tour providers, car rental agencies, restaurants, and numerous other travel services are finding new ways to help travelers stay green.

Tell the truth to the travel insurance representative. If you are sick, tell the provider about it. Your insurance will be denied if they find out you lied. Unfortunately, you will end up paying the rather large bill.

If you’re looking to traveling to a foreign country, try not to exchange your currency at the airport. The exchange rates are usually extremely high because it is a convenient place. Before you fly in, research nearby banks for currency exchanges, and you will receive better rates.

If you want to rent a car, usually you must be 18 years old and some require that you be 25. If you aren’t 25, the rate you pay may be higher, and you may be required to use a credit card. If you are older, you may not be able to rent a car. When you make your reservations, make sure you ask if they have any age restrictions.

If you are traveling and wear glasses, remember to take an extra pair with you in your luggage. If your glasses happen to break when you are vacationing you can have a back up. You may want to keep them on your person, or you can pack them into a suitcase if you prefer.

Consider the bus to save money. While buses will have a small fee for over-sized bags or excess weight, their baggage allowance is often much higher than what is allowed on an airline. You can also use buses to ship large packages along with your luggage, which is a major benefit of bus traveling.

Jet lag is a common problem when traveling across time zones. It cannot be entirely avoided, but getting lots of sleep before your trip can definitely mitigate things. You should also make an effort to sleep during the flight.

Keep this information handy as you plan your trip and pack your bags. This information will help you tremendously at every stage of the vacation process.

Allow a family member access to your travel itinerary. This will allow someone still at home to know where you should be. Also, stay in touch with that person for safety’s sake. They won’t be concerned if they hear from you.

You will pay more money for these projects that do not save you as much space as you think. Try out some folding techniques which will safe space and allow you to take less baggage along with you. Utilizing some of these methods can leave you with quite a bit more space in your bag.

Place your contact information inside your luggage as well as on the luggage tag. It is easy for a baggage tag to come off the exterior of your suitcases while they are en route. If your luggage ever gets lost without a tag, it helps to have identifying information within the bag itself so you can get it back faster.

Everyone has high expectations for their travels, but try not to let them carry you away. Harness the information you just learned for your next trip. Allow yourself time to gain more knowledge about traveling because it will be really beneficial in the future.
