Premium HyC150: A Handy Hydration Kit For Today’s Global Traveller

travel tips, travel, travel musingsIf there is something that most people love to do, it is traveling. We all want that well-deserved vacation, a moment to feel free from stress and a time away from the hustle and bustle in the city. Traveling gives you an opportunity to understand yourself, explore places, taste different cuisines and experience the best in life.

With today’s technology, traveling has become more convenient and accessible. From the beginning of a trip until its end, technology plays an important role. Browse the Internet for tips and fun finds from online blogs, best rated restaurants, and exotic places you want to explore.  Book a flight and accommodation on promo, navigate around an unfamiliar area and even translate foreign languages or know real time foreign exchange with the use of your gadgets.

All these plus a regular update to your friends and loved one by posting photos and sharing experiences on social.

Without a doubt, our traveling experience has gone many levels up. However, everyone should remember to take care of your body in order to enjoy the trip. Traveling may take a toll on your body if you do not nourish your body with the right nutrients. Your immune system must be strong and you must be full of energy to get from one place to another. By eating healthy food and drinks, a day full of activities will not wear you out. Fine Japan Co. Ltd., a 40-year-old wellness company that has been manufacturing nutraceutical products, has come up with a supplemental drink that is perfect for travelers. Continue reading

Mount Banahaw Postcard

I received this Mount Banahaw card earlier this year. This is the only card I have ever seen about the place and I am delighted to add this to my growing card collection. I have heard a lot of good stuff about the place and tales of people hiking there to reach its peaks. I dream of doing that with the little man one day, too.

Here are a few trivia about Mount Banahaw written at the back of the card:

  • it is a three-peaked volcano complex located between the provinces of Laguna and Quezon
  • it is the tallest mountain in the CALABARZON region
  • Banahaw, also spelled Banahao or Banajao, is a national park and a protected area in the Philippines since 1941
  • it is properly called Mts. Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape
  • it covers 10,901 hectares of land
  • it has an elevation of 7,119 feet above sea level
  • it last erupted in 1730
  • Mount Banahaw is also considered as a “Holy Mountain” and it is popular among pilgrims

I bet it will also be an awesome adventure to hike there with the family during holidays. Imagine communing with nature and relaxing away from the hustle and bustle and the regular drone of everyday living. The cool breeze and the chirping birds nearby will be enough to melt the stress away. It will probably be a great idea to bring along an oscar schmidt guitar to while the time away singing your family’s favorite tunes.

Thank you Sir Willie for sending this over and for putting it in an envelope so it won’t have those pesky and annoying postmarks.
