Take your simple and calming trip to the next level by getting camping right. There’s not much that you can do wrong during camping and becoming one with nature and your friends/family in a trip where you get to sleep beneath the stars. But don’t be mistaken, because there are some things you might end up neglecting that might turn your fun camping trip into a boring one. If you want to wake up to chirping birds in a tent that won’t let the bed bugs bite and sit out by the fire and tell ghost stories with ease, keep the following things in mind and make no mistakes. Here are some regrets to avoid when it comes to camping

The Lowdown on Planning a Trip to Phillippines

The Lowdown on Planning a Trip to Phillippines

As a family, we love to vacation in South-East Asia. What’s not to like? Most of the places are kid-friendly (yes, we found family friendly things to do even in notorious Pattaya), cheap, and easy to get to from Bangalore.

This year, as we again begin our travel planning for the annual holiday in December, my eyes wander off to the right-hand side of the map we have on hand, and for some reason Phillippines is beckoning to me.

While I love to travel and explore different places, I tend to do so on a budget (terrible currency conversions), and you really can’t have great experiences when you travel on budget airlines with multiple hops, or stay at 3-star hotels miles away from the tourist attractions you want to visit.

But sometimes one is lucky and experiences that great plane ride, or that great hotel stay, and in this post, I wanted to call out two such great travel experiences I have had.

Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.

As you might have guessed from my blog title and first sentence, I spent the break alternating between being a couch potato, and being a lazy hippo wallowing in the water, and felt thoroughly relaxed in the process.

All my RSI-related aches and pains, and Vitamin D deficiency-related pains all faded away taking me to a mellow state. And yes, the multiple bottles of beer helped too 🙂 .

Here’s a quick rundown of all the happenings.
