Adventure holidays in Australia

Australia has a number of diverse and extreme landscapes and climates, from the subtropical forests to the beautiful rugged coastlines and to the dry, sparse outback, so it is a great place to get away from it all and have an adventure holiday.

There are plenty of hiking and trekking holidays through the wilderness areas of Australia, which will suit a variety of different fitness levels. Auswalk offers a range of guided and self guided ‘Inn-to-Inn’ walking tours, including some great treks through the best of Australia‘s National Parks. Auswalk arrange for your luggage to be moved ahead of you each day, so that you have everything ready when you arrive at the next accommodation stop. Walking trips include the famous ‘Great Ocean Walk‘, which takes you along the beautiful Victoria coastline from Torquay to Lorne, and has a seven day itinerary (five days walking). Also there is the Peninsula Ramble, which takes you across the Mornington Peninsula in Southern Melbourne, which has some fantastic coastal scenery and beaches and like the Great Ocean Walk has a seven day itinerary. If you fancy something a little shorter and more sedate then there is a wonderful trek through the tropical paradise of Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef region, which is just three days walking.

Best seafoods

Hawaii offers the freshest of freshest when it comes to seafoods. Try the poke which is usually made from ahi tuna and can be served either spicy or limu. In case you want your fish cooked, you can go for grilled tuna, steamed onaga, or maybe pan-seared name-we-have-it fish. If you are a sushi lover, Honolulu will be heaven!

Long Distance Driving Tips With Children

A driving trip with the kids can be a great family experience. However, sometimes sitting in a car for the better part of a day can get to the kids. Planning in advance can help make the trip go quicker. Obviously the age of your children determines what to take, how to plan, etc. Here are some ideas to make that driving experience more enjoyable.

Entertainment:
Cars, and driving trips are very different from when we were children: Most cars have air conditioning (remember the howling noise and wind from open windows). Good music on the radio, etc. We recommend that your kids bring some of the following electronics: radio, cassette, or CD with headphones, hand-held videogames (including Sega, Nintendo), flashlight (for reading at night).
If you have a van, you can purchase or rent a TV-VCR which can run off the car’s battery. It’s a great way for kids to pass the time watching videos. Just be sure that the TV-VCR is securely fastened so it will not move in the event of an accident. Cracker Barrel Restaurants, located throughout the U.S., have rental programs for cassettes and videos: Rent it at one location, drop it off at another. Blockbuster Videos also offer a long-term rental program.

So everything was laid out perfectly well for your big wedding day. Now, what? Your honeymoon is just as important as the ceremonies you’re holding to make your life partnership official. This is the moment when you will be feeling like the luckiest man or woman on Earth. Of course, honeymoons can also go bad and leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, wondering what you’ve gotten yourself into when you said, “I do”.


 
Of course, sometimes your honeymoon veers away from how your marriage will really be like. Still, you don’t want things to go bad, especially if it’s your first special holiday after your big day. These resorts should make sure that you will at the very least enjoy your time with your new spouse during the first few days that you’re husband and wife.
 
For beach lovers: Most people imagine their honeymoon on the beach because it seems “standard” and safely romantic. These beach resorts can give a completely new definition to honeymooning, though, because you’ll be treated like royalty while you’re here.
