A lot of people have amazing dreams but majority of us stumble in reaching those goals when we meet hardships along the way, such as the lack of funds. It might be your lifelong dream to travel across the globe doing things only a few or no one have done, or going to places no one has ever explored.

If you will be attempting an out of ordinary journey and you need some financial backing up, here are some helpful tips that may lead you to close a good travel sponsorship deal:

What’s in it for the sponsor

No one will just hand you a big sum of money because they just want to. You need to think how potential sponsors think. They need to get something out of your travel, expedition, or exploration. People or companies will sponsor you most likely for publicity. You need to prepare for your presentation well since they need to find out if people or their consumers will talk about you. Are you going to appear in the news, blogs, magazines, or newspapers?

For 70 years Pink’s has been a family operated hot dog stand in Los Angeles, California. This special hot dog stand began in 1939, when many Americans were struggling and good food was expensive. Pink’s prided themselves on providing fantastic hot dogs that anyone could afford. They have a variety of options to, and special chili that is well known all around the country to day.

In the 1940s Paul Pink bought a small building for his hot dog business, and it stands there today as the place thousands of Americans visit daily. The hot dogs come with any toppings you choose, such as chili, onions, and mustard, and cost only $2.95. Even their massive 10 inch hot dogs cost less than $4! Mostly everything is under $6. Technically from an economic stand point, these amazing chili dogs are a better “value” than they were in the late 30s. Not a lot of mom and pop restaurants can say that they survived 70 years in a growing city, but Pink’s has thanks to the great service.

Vietnamese Food – More Than Just Pho

By

Pho is easily the most recognizable Vietnamese dish, reaching cult like status in many major metropolitan areas. However, Vietnamese food has such incredible depth and variety that it’s a shame more people never experience it. Vietnamese food is beloved for many reasons: it’s one of the healthiest asian cuisines, has incredible flavor while being light, and blends spices and textures in a way that attracts wide appeal. So what really makes Vietnamese food so special?

Vietnamese food can be divided into three distinct regional styles. The northern style of cuisine is the most traditional, and uses less ingredients and has a more simple taste and feel. Southern cuisine has much more French and Chinese influence, and southern cuisine has a broader range of flavors. The central part of Vietnam focuses on smaller dishes, and as a whole uses much more spices than the North or the South.
