Solo and slow

Solo and slow

Mia was nursing a broken heart when she decided to go solo traveling in Europe. Three-months later, she went home with a wider perspective on life, and a stronger heart and character that is ready to take on whatever possibilities that come her way.

Meanwhile, blogger Gale hopped on a bus six years ago to visit a friend’s family just to have a break on her routinely work. With a degree in Anthropology, this lady is not new to visiting remote places and immersing herself to the culture and their people. Adjusting in a new place, and having that constant curiosity on things around her come naturally in her character. She also left her job as an analayizer of a site for gadget reviews R-Tech24 which she said really pays the bill. But she is not happy.

Years later, Mia and Gale are two of the most known female travelers in the country—exploring places, meeting people, and pursuing passion one travel destination as a time. Some may say that traveling solo and slow may be lonely. Terrifying even.

While many thinks they do not want to look like losers for not having any travel buddies, as what TV writer and author Kristin Newman told Time, solo female travelers wanted to get the life they want without having to adjust to anyone’s time and preferences.

“It’s the same how people don’t want to eat dinner alone. I think people are afraid of being lonely, of being scared, of looking like they didn’t have anybody,” she notes.

Moreover, the scary thought of getting lost, being robbed, and meeting scammers as you go on the streets of a new place may pull you down and make you shun your dream of travelling.

But for Mia, a freelance writer and editor and the author behind travel blog solo traveling made her discover herself more—this is amidst the risks.

“I have learned that I am strong and confident when I’m traveling alone. I know how to take care of myself,” she says in an interview, adding that one should know the line between chasing dream and risking safety and security.

Gale was also a freelance writer, can attest to this. She said, “I’ve learned to navigate in strange places and overcome obstacles all by myself. I also get to test my patience and courage and I have more time to reflect.”

Aside from meeting new people and learning about the places and their cultures, the two says that going places alone is a way to discover yourself more, away from your comfort zone. Author Candy Spelling wrote in Huffington Post that without anyone to please but yourself alone, you enjoy a sense of independence, while having the opportunity to have a restorative mind.

She says, “I think that if you can take a trip on your own, you might find that the peace and tranquility are worth it. It’s just you and the universe—no one to answer to! You may see, as I did, that such a scenario could be very restful and transformative.”

She said, “I have to either use the timer, or ask someone else to take it which usually ends up not a good one.” Also, witnessing a spectacular view for the first time gives a kick of melancholy as you also remember people that you want to share the stunning sight with. But more than the view and the blurred shots, solo and slow travelling is rewarding as meeting people along the way is something you can treasure for a lifetime—it may be that photographer you met while in Thailand’s Krabi Island, or the kid who was selling postcards in Vietman.

While keeping yourself on guard at all times, Gale says that we should not lose hope in humanity and just give in to the notion that strangers should not be trusted. Sometimes, strangers find long and lasting friendships to fellow strangers too. “I have also learned that people are kinder than we give them credit for. Sure, there are places where the people seem rude and unfriendly, but someone’s bound to come and help you out without expecting anything in return,” Gale notes. Since last year, been hopping countries from Bolivia, Brazil, and even went hiking up to Peru’s Maccu Pichu and the United States. For them, they are living the dream.

Exploring The Palace

We explored the iconic London Residence of Her Majesty The Queen where I filmed it using my 360 kamera. We visited early morning to skip the crowds. Obviously, everyone had the same plan and it was already busy when we arrived at 8:00 AM. With its elegantly-designed facade, the palace, which is perhaps the city’s most famous sight is truly “fit for a Queen”. Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. It is used for the many official events and receptions held by The Queen.

It is one of only a few working royal palaces left in the world. We walked through The Mall; this is the road from the Queen’s front door connecting Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square. It’s famous from the marches and processions that it has “hosted.” After spending few hours, we walked back to the palace to see the age-old tradition of the changing of the guard.

Nice cream for the face

I am in love with a Vitamin C serum. What else can I say? What could I be said about the product that is absolutely perfect? I mean, it reduces your wrinkles, and all other face lines and discolorations. You know, we live life, we spend too much time in the sun, we get old, and eventually our skin starts to show the signs of aging, there is a lot of, shall we say, wear and tear and other such things, and this is the type of product that addresses this directly in a way that no other product that I’ve ever seen does. It’s not it’s not a surgery it’s not anything like that, it is just a very simple crank cream and an ointment that you put on your face and that you watch the magic happen. To be honest, for me, the effect of the amazing serum started happening less than one week after I began using it. I did not expect such instant results, but about four or five days after the first time that I applied this, applying at Daily of course, I started to notice that my skin was totally existing in a way that it never had before, and I can’t believe that it happened, I sincerely can not understand how well this works or how it works so well, so I keep being told magic ingredient is Vitamin C, I never knew that vitamin C was that good for the skin, obviously

 

Why Online Shopping Is Cool

Why Online Shopping Is Cool

I find online shopping. So cool. I definitely recommend it especially to those who have strict schedule. I jotted down some points why I think online shopping is easy.

  1. Saves Time

You no longer have to fall in long lines for minutes. You no longer have to brave the traffic just to go to the store.

  1. Delivered right at your doorstep

Of course, when shopping online, it means every purchase shall be delivered at your doorstep for a day or two. Sometimes if your products to be replaced, then you can have it picked up again so they can replace. In short, you do not go out of the comforts of your home. Which is so convenient especially to working moms, businessmen, entrepreneur, and other busy individual.

 

  1. It helps small business

Due to the demand of online shops there are a lot of businesses that spout too which is better for hw economy. It gives opportunity to earn more right at the comforts of your home.

Amazon helping students

Anyway, how much is Amazon Prime Canada for students? It’s 50% off of $80 a year, so basically you’re paying less than $4 a month.  So, for less than $4 a month, you are getting an amazing amount of services, and you are having a lot of opportunities granted to you, which is very special and incredible, in my opinion, I don’t know if there is a better deal in the world than $4 a month for free shipping, as well as the online streaming services that come along with Amazon Prime, which are very much like Netflix and Amazon Prime streaming service is actually getting so Advanced that some people are starting to say that their original series are even better than the ones that Netflix is offering. I really do believe that this is significant. I think that is significant because Amazon Prime is not just a streaming service, and yet they are competing directly with the best streaming service.  Amazon Prime Canada is becoming more and more valuable every day. So, it’s hard to say how much it is, because there are all sorts of intangibles. I mean on the surface, it’s $80 a year, or just around $6 a month. Which is not very bad at all, but if you start to think about it in the sense that you are no longer going to be paying for shipping on any deliveries that you have made towards you for from Amazon, and other things like that, it becomes more and more Tangled. And then if you look at other cost that you can eliminate, this becomes even more compelling. For example, if you were to look at the fact that you would not have to use Netflix anymore to stream high-quality television programs, and if you are using paid cloud services, the Amazon Prime system would also provide you with an alternative that is covered in the membership fee, who it start to realize that Amazon Prime Canada is in the business of cutting costs and saving you money on things that you’re already paying for, which blurs the line of how expensive it really is. Or is not.

Why You Should Check Out Juju Supply

Yes, I do find that these gifts are pretty amazing in their ability to appeal to just about everybody, as I don’t know very many people who don’t deal with some type of struggle. In my opinion, this is something that is totally Universal. And it is something that people are going to continue to have to deal with fur probably the rest of time, Health struggles of both a physical and emotional sense. And a mental sense to. It is becoming more and more accepted than mental health is to be taken just as seriously as physical health, and I find that the struggles that accompany mental and physical health are heels and helped and pretend people are protected by the products that are made by Juju Supply. Is it too simplistic to boil everything down to being helped by single product? Hey, maybe it is, I’ve never thought about it that way really, but I do think that these things are way more than a product. Yes, there are product in The Sims 3 purchase them, but they serve such a noble purpose, that it would be disrespectful in my opinion to say that this is a capitalist entity that just benefits and gets rich off of people. No no, this is the type of operation that shows that companies that work hard at helping people can actually Thrive and survive in this world, and, personally, gives me a lot of faith in humanity. Sometimes, it’s hard to have that.
