5 Summer Travel Essentials For The Family

Pin It

Summer is upon us once more and now that the children are out of school, it is the perfect time to plan and schedule those family outings and travel adventures. Whether you opt to go on a quick trip to a town nearby or whisk the family to a far off beach destination, it is best to plan ahead and make a checklist of everything that you need to bring and pack for your summer trip.

Here are 5 summer travel essentials you should not forget to stash to your overnight duffel bags:

  • Your very own water bottle ~ Best to carry your own water bottle so you can steer clear of those plastic bottles. Not only will Mother Nature thank you for it, but you can also save when you opt to refill your water bottle instead of buying bottled water while traveling.
  • Sunscreen ~ Since you plan to spend a considerable amount of time under the sun and plans to enjoy every minute of it swimming, snorkeling and basking in the summer weather, do not forget to carry a tube of sunscreen inside your backpack. Opt for those that have SPF 50 protection and higher, to make sure you and your family are safe from those harmful UVA and UVB while you have fun under the sun.
  • Flip flops ~ These in my opinion is simply the perfect summer footwear. They are comfy, convenient to pack and will just match every swimsuit or sundress you plan to wear on your summer trip, so be sure not to leave the house without a pair or two!
  • Rash guards ~ These are the most ideal swimwear, especially for children, since they are most comfortable to wear while swimming and also gives protection against allergens and the harmful sun rays, so make sure you pack a pair or two for your kiddos and the grown-ups, too. 
  • Mouthwash ~ the last thing you want to worry about is bad breath stopping your from doing all the fun stuff you want to do while on vacation, so make sure you stash a bottle of Swish Mouthwash onto your backpack! I swore by Swish Mouthwash. Created by a top and trusted company, Unilab, Swish Mouthwash is powered by Surefresh Technology that kills bad breath causing bacteria, as well as plaque and gingivitis. It is also alcohol free that is why it is safe to use everyday even by older children. Swish even comes in handy-dandy 35ml bottles which are the best to lag around while you travel from one renowned destination to the next. And what’s even better is that it even comes in a Breath Spray variant, which is also perfect for people on the go. To know more about Swish Mouthwash, do visit their Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/SwishPhilippines

If you are traveling with little children, it is also best to stash insect repellent patches so you will be sure that they are guarded against mosquitoes and diseases like Dengue. It is a must that we ensure our children and our family’s safety even while we are on vacation. Here’s hoping you have one great summer experience!

Sunday Stamps: Letters, Postcards + the Post

Pin It

stamps, Finland

For this week’s Sunday Stamps we are to share all about letters, postcards and the post. As always, I have not found the chance to photograph the bulk of stamps that I received through my postcards as I find myself swamped with online and offline duties these days. Good thing I found this in the stack of postcards lying idly in my workstation. I simply think the little girl placing the letter onto the mailbox is just beautiful, don’t you think?

This lovely stamp was used in a Donald Duck card, a Postcrossing.com official sent in late last year by Aarne of Parainen, Finland to the little man.

Have a wonderful Sunday and do not forget to check here for more stamps:

Summer is almost here, the perfect time to plan those trips and travels with the family as most children will be on vacation from school. Even though most people plan to go to far yet popular destinations, those quick yet practical vacations will also prove to be most ideal, especially for families who have a number of children. Here is a press release about 3 of the best travel spots in the Metro which you might want to consider in your next family trip:

Local holidays are best enjoyed when they can be extended into a long weekend. These periods are a source of both excitement and trepidation for moms. Mothers, while wanting to make vacation time exciting, also find the task daunting, especially those who juggle family time and work time.

As moms become more successful in the workplace, they might also find it more difficult to find the time to go on long trips. The good news, however, is that the metro is packed with places to see and things to do. With these sights, families don’t have to go far to make lasting travel memories. This way, metro moms can make the most of long weekends, without the stress of long travel times.

While an hour away from the Metro, the travel time is worth it once you see its mini-amusement park. The weather, along with the many treats along the way will surely make for one fun-filled road trip. Kids can also enjoy horseback riding, a quick ride on the carousel, and their main attraction, the Sky Eye.

Sunday Stamps: Mahal Kita Stamps

Pin It

Sunday Stamps, stamps, Philippines, commemorative stamps

It was been sometime since I joined Sunday Stamps I really need to get my stamps photographed and organized so I won’t have to rummage for one whenever I wanted to join a specific theme. Oh well, good thing that for this week we can post about anything we wish, so am sharing this lovely Mahal Kita stamps I got last week through our Valentine’s Day Swap.

Sunday Stamps, stamps, Philippines, commemorative stamps

Mahal Kita translates to I love You and rather quite timely, these stamps are released in time for Valentine’s Day this year. According to the Phil Post website, www.phlpost.gov.ph, this colorful artwork depicting a man’s affection towards a woman through serenading with music, giving flowers and writing love letters, was designed by a St. Stephen High School student, Jamia Mei Tolentino, who won last year’s On The Spot stamp design contest which was held at selected Robinson’s mall branches in the country November of last year.

According to the website, 55,000 pieces of these stamps were released, apparently as of this writing it has yet to reach a single local Post Office in Malolos as I was not able to get even 1 piece of this. I just wish commemorative stamps like these are easy to find around here just like these cool road case. Oh well, good thing I was able to receive a couple in the mail. Thanks to fellow postcrossers Rence and Philip for using these stamps on their cards!
