Obviously, if you want to go on a cruise, your best bet is to make the travel arrangements in advance. After all, taking a cruise is not the same thing as taking a spontaneous weekend vacation. Cruises are not usually thought of as the type of vacation that someone prone to spontaneous travel arranging goes for. There are however, deals to be had on last minute cruises if you know where to find them.
The Pillars of Hercules is a true story about Paul Thoreau’s quest to travel from Gibraltar around the Mediterranean Sea in a clockwise direction and finishing up in Ceuta, Morocco. The best part is he refuses to use air travel. He uses all other manner of transportation and recalls his obstacles and cultural experiences. The book shares his anecdotal story that drags you right along with him as he makes his way around with no set agenda.
Element #2: Quality of the knit fabric. Knits, as with everything else in life, come in a variety of colors, and weights. Yes, you can find inexpensive knits, but are they worth the investment? Buy quality–you really do get what you pay for. It is better to invest in a quality garment that will give you many years of good service than to squander budget dollars on a lesser quality piece of apparel that might need to be discarded at the end of a season.
Wildseed Farms is one more cruise ship destination while vacationing in the Texas Hill Country. The farm is located just 7 miles east of Fredericksburg Texas off of US Hwy 290. Wildseed Farms is the nation’s largest working wildflower seed farm, where you can purchase wildflower seeds direct from the grower. You can also experience some of the greatest flowers that Texas has to offer. Best yet, Wildseed Farms is open year round. The wild flower farm is even open on Christmas Eve.
Throughout the islands and even on cruise boats, you will usually need to pay with U.S. dollars. There are some businesses in Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz where it is possible to pay with credit cards or traveler’s checks. It is also possible to take money out at banks in this town by making a credit card withdrawal or at ATMs.
It’s exactly as it sounds really, it’s a water bottle with a mini filter in it. Most of us at this point have a water filter of some sort at home or are at least familiar with them. For those that just wish to have something to carry around and use at home than this is not for you unless you are not using a filter of any kind. If you do have access to drinkable water at home, then the added filter in this is not needed and you would be better off with a general water bottle. The added filter can make the bottle a little bulky and clunky and if you can do without then don’t bother. Plus the speed at which the water pours will be a bit slower as the water is filtered.
Don’t write off all-inclusives as too expensive. If you head south of the border, you can score big deals at Mexican resorts that offer everything — food, drinks, transportation and a room — as part of the package. Sometimes the deal even includes airfare. For example, we recently found packages with a weeklong lodging at an all-inclusive Cancun resort and airfare from Washington, D.C., for as little as $600 a person.
So, in summary, choose your fabric, invest in quality, choose timeless color combinations, and mix and match to your heart’s delight! You’ll be enjoying compliments and freedom from the “what will I wear syndrome”.
