Vacations Offer an Opportunity to Relax

Going on vacation is a lot of fun. Vacations offer a way to relax and enjoy time with the people you care about. If you are a solo vacationer, vacations give you the opportunity to enjoy some time by yourself and relax in comfort.

There are so many vacation destinations. Each of these vacation destinations have something unique to offer. If you are the type of vacationer who likes to sit at the beach and enjoy the surf and warm water, the Caribbean may be the right spot for you. Central America and Mexico offers some amazing beach getaways. One of the nice things about going on vacation in a place like Central America is that many of the beaches are uninhabited. Places like El Salvador and Guatemala do not have an overwhelmingly large beach tourist business, yet the beaches in these countries are some of the nicest on the planet.

There is a trap that some vacationers fall into though that they later regret. They are on vacation and are enjoying themselves and then get invited to a timeshare presentation. They are presented with the opportunity of owning a piece of land or owning a property in their favorite vacation destination. A vacationer will sit through the entire presentation and maybe receive a free meal or a voucher for a discount at a tourist attraction. At the end of the presentation, a representative comes and talks to them personally. The representative is persuasive, and so the individual purchases a timeshare.

The first time they visit the timeshare with their friends and family, it’s amazing. However, as the years go on, they realize that timeshares are not for them. The problem is that they are bound by the contract they signed. Now, these individuals may want help getting out of a timeshare.

Getting into a timeshare is a lot easier than getting out of it. However, getting free from a timeshare contract is not impossible. It requires the help of individuals who understand how timeshares work and who have the resources to make breaking free from a timeshare a reality.

Short visit in Bohol

My father got a call from his cousin that the second payment of the land that’s been sold is already given. He was told that he can get his share anytime. Last time, his share was deposited in the bank, but this time, the father wanted to get his share personally because he wants to clear some issues, and also to visit the graves of his parents, brothers and other relatives. Like the usual, my brother and I go with him. My father is too old to travel alone. It was an abrupt plan but it went very well.

We stayed in Bohol for five days. A very short visit to our relatives and it is very memorable because we talked many things to our relatives there. Also, we were able to settle some issues regarding the share of the land that my late mother got from her parents. I am so glad that because of the DAVRAA, some schools in Davao does not the class for two weeks. That is why I do not have to worry about my nieces and nephews because their mother is around. I did have a good time in Bohol, I was able to rest a lot, have quiet moments at my grandparent’s place and went to the white sand beach. Ended, life in the province is relaxing and calm. I hope to visit Bohol again soon, but not a short one.

Always Bring Identification Card

My brothers, cousin, SIL and nephew are now traveling on vessel on their way to the province of our grandparents. They were so excited because they will be able to meet our relatives who lives there and relatives from other parts of the country because of important matters. Yes, my brothers and cousin are traveling because they have business to do on the land of our grandparents that is for sale. Since my mother is dead, my older brother is representing her. The younger brother is joining because he wanted his wife and son to have a bit bonding too and for them to meet other relatives.

Their travel encountered problem because the brother did not bring his Identification card. The ticketing outlet is only give tickets to those who have ID’s for safety reason. The younger brother giving up and just decided to go back, but the older brother finds a way to produced an ID card. Now they are boarding on the vessel on their way to Bohol. The younger brother learned a lesson of what happened. It is really important to always bring your ID card wherever you go for you might need it in an unexpected moment.

Anyways, thanks God all went well. I hope that they will have safe travel and will arrive safely. And come back home safe. God bless!

Traveling with kids

After one night and two days of travel, we finally arrived safely at the province of my parents. I am traveling with my father, older brother and two nephews. I really love to travel, but this time I am not enjoying it that much. Indeed traveling with kids will make you exhausted especially if it is a long travel and you have to ride in a bus and vessel. Transferring from bus to vessel is very tiring. In addition to that, you are carrying you luggage. How is that!? I prefer to travel alone or with my father with me. Fewer worries I must say.

But still it is a wonderful experience for me. Even though I did not get enough sleep because of the kids. Experience that will be added in my memory and will treasure those memories forever. Our travel is very much tiring but seeing the nephews amazed of the things they have seen while traveling will make the travel fun and exciting. Anyways, I am so thankful to God for we arrived safely to our destination. Are kids are having fun playing with their cousins and enjoying the white sand beach this morning. More memories to remember with this two kiddos in our seven days vacation.

He says yes finally

During holy week, the family prefers to stay at home, take part in the church activities, and resting. Sometimes, I thought of us going somewhere to rest and relax but the father didn’t like the idea. He is so against it. He would say, instead of enjoying in this Lenten season, it is best to repent and meditate. The father has a point. Holy week is the time to repent and reflect. We can have our resting and relaxing somewhere any time though. The sister and her family will be going to the province of his husband this holy week. And she is inviting me to go with them. I am happy because I really want to travel and unwind. I am so stress because of my brother. Going to the province is a good idea.

I told the father about the sister’s invitation. Unfortunately he is not allowing me to go. I felt really sad because I really want to go to rest. I asked him why, but he will not give me any answer. I did not stop asking his permission. I guess he feels irritated by me and say yes. Woohoo! I will be going out of the city for this first time. Thanks to my father for saying yes. I can pack my things now.
