For those whose introduction to tea drinking began and ended with a Lipton tea bag, perhaps it’s time to expand your horizon and acquaint yourself with the different brews that can do well as an alternative to coffee. Unknown to some, tea can come in different flavors and mixed with milk, sugar, honey, mint (and even butter!) depending on your taste or mood; it can also be served hot or cold to suit the weather.
In recent years, modern tea houses serving tea in an assortment of flavors have sprouted in different cities, giving the age old beverage a twist and making it palatable to a younger audience. Aside from that, the benefits of drinking tea such as helping prevent the risk of cancer and having flawless skin have been hailed by medical experts resulting in a more popular demand for this previously overlooked beverage.
There are a number of reasons why we travel. Some people might say they travel in order to see first-hand parts of the world they’ve never been before. Others might say they like visiting other countries to learn about different places and cultures. There are some who travel because they long to taste different foods, and others who simply want to shop.
But then there are certain travelers who often pack their bags and leave their homes to embark on a spiritual journey to a special destination. This urge to travel to a sacred or holy destination may be fueled by a number of things from everyday stress to finding one’s purpose in the grand scheme of things, to an attempt in overhauling one’s chaotic lifestyle. But whatever the reason may be, it can be said that there are a lot of travelers year in and year out who don’t mind crossing great distances just to reach these holy places.
A spectacular city view from atop a building is something that appeals to most people. In hotels, the room with a view commands a higher rate and yet they still attract the attention of lots of travelers. Perhaps man’s fascination with an aerial view of a city is brought about by one of the key aspects of life here on this planet: gravity.
We’re perpetually anchored to the earth, and that means being used to seeing cities from the ground up. Turn your gaze to the left or the right and you’ll see walls, buildings, trees, and other structures. But when you’re hundreds of meters off the ground, suddenly it seems that the whole world has opened up. Before you is a sprawling city, without borders, and only endless stretches of land and water as far as the eye can see. Sometimes, the view really can take your breath away.
These days, the onset of budget airlines and travel promos make people more inclined to travel abroad. Almost everywhere you look there are posters, advertisements, and even TV shows featuring exotic places, delicious food, and interesting people. It used to be that going on a trip abroad usually meant you’re traveling with someone. But going solo can also mean lots of fun.
Setting off by oneself isn’t so unusual for travelers these days for a number of reasons. Friends may have difficulty agreeing on a date when they can all take some time off at work; changing demographics can affect itineraries; and sometimes when the hectic work environment seems a bit too much to bear, we feel the need to take a step back and space out. However, there have been unfortunate stories from travelers on supplement fees being charged for solo travelers.
One of the most important things that travelers take into consideration when planning a trip is deciding where to stay. If you’re the type who always goes for hotels and doesn’t even bother checking out alternative accommodations, this is the perfect time to tap into your adventurous side and try mixing things up. For something a little different, why not try booking a room at a cozy bed and breakfast! Although relatively popular, not all B&Bs get as many guests as they might like because of numerous myths that actually have little basis. Some of the myths circulating around especially among the younger generation of travelers are that all B&Bs have shared bathrooms, or that people checking into B&Bs have to be willing to spend some time and socialize with the other guests.
