Outdoor adventures can be lots of fun, especially when you choose to go on a camping trip with your family. The natural surroundings offer an array of fun activities, even children will enjoy as long as you have selected a campsite that has it all. When thinking about sleeping on the ground most people worry about creepy crawlers and cold, but when you choose the right camp tent, then you will not have to worry about such issues. To get the perfect tent, however, there are several things you must remember to look into.
1. Tent size
Usually tent sizes are based on how many sleepers they can accommodate. But remember that you need space for your luggage. If a tent says it can sleep six people, take that to mean it can sleep 4 people comfortably. The last thing you want is a tent that cramps you and your family in. Think about the real length and width of the tent, especially if you are looking through family tents.
2. Tent comfort
Treat the camp tent as your lodge out in the forest or woods and so it should offer you comfort

I found myself gazing into the eyes of a gorilla toddler in the heart of Africa. That playful “child” walked right up to me and sat at my feet as I backed up against a wall of sharp nettles with nowhere to go. There were no barriers between us; nothing that separated us.
The toddler’s mother was unconcerned with my presence, and the dominant male let it be known who was boss with his powerful displays. I was right there in the middle of them while on my gorilla trek, and it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life.

It was a dream and several years later, it is still a dream.

With everyone pinching pennies and tightening their belts in the face of higher oil and gas prices these days, vacationing seems like a luxury most of us simply can’t afford. But if you choose your destinations carefully and take advantage of a few tricks, you can still make traveling the joy it’s supposed to be.
Tip 1: Overnight trains and buses
This is one way to kill 2 birds with one stone, save time AND money. By opting for a train or bus you save one night’s accommodation and cover distance at the same time.
India, and Thailand’s overnight trains are quite comfortable and not much more than a night’s accommodation. Waking up to a fantastic sunrise in Northern Thailand while speeding along to the rhythm of the tracks is one of this writer’s most cherished travel memories.
In Spain, however, the overnight train can be quite costly, so check the prices carefully.
As for overnight buses, none compare to Turkey. Coffee, tea, cakes, clean rest stops, and lemon cologne put Turkey’s bus system in a league of it’s own.
Tip 2: Pick a hotel that delivers the extras
Some hotels offer a place to sleep. Other hotels offer a place to sleep, plus complimentary
Are you planning to fly to your place of interest anytime soon? Well, before you plan your holiday, it is very essential to bear in mind certain important things to avoid any last-minute hassles and make your vacation a memorable one. Following travel and luggage tips will help you plan your tour in a better way:
• If you have planned your tour during the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year, it is better to arrive at the airport at least two hours before departure. This is because these weeks are the busiest times of the year and the security check lines are very long. Similarly, most airports are extremely crowded on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons.
• In order to reduce the possibilities of a delay, it is advisable to prefer a non-stop flight over a break flight. As the air traffic is comparatively less in morning, the early morning flights are very less likely to be delayed.
• At the security check of almost all the airports, passengers are asked to remove their footwear. Therefore, it is always better to wear clean socks and slip-on shoes.
• As the passengers are required to furnish their identification proof several times before
Many people have a fear of flying, or aviophobia – both those who have flown and still remain uneasy, and also those who have never flown and really don’t know what to expect. At some point in your life you learned to be afraid of flying, since this is a learned response.
This severe anxiety can cause a person to actually suffer a panic attack or even nausea and vomiting. However, airline travel makes it much easier to get where you’re going if it’s a long drive, so here are some tips to help with overcoming your fear of flying.
First, remember that flying is actually a very safe form of travel. You are almost 300% more likely to die in a car accident than in a plane crash.

Quite a few airline pilots are trained in the military, which is even more exacting. You can rest assured you are in good hands when flying on a commercial airline.
Another good thing to do is to do some research about how a plane actually is able
