Getting Ready for Summer

With the rollout of the COVID19 vaccines in the country, we are hopeful that we may experience a certain level of “normalcy” in the next few months. The idea of going back to activities that we loved excites us. We can somehow start planning the trips that have been canceled a year ago, including the itinerary for summer vacation.

It makes us feel good to make plans for the summer. So what we want to do when we can safely move? When it is okay to travel, my daughter plans to bring our family to the less crowded beach where we can take advantage of a beautiful day strolling on the seaside. We were stuck at home for most of the year, so a beach plan is something that makes us feel better.

We don’t have a place in mind yet. But for now, we’re checking on essentials to bring for the weekend getaway. Aside from food, I want to secure one piece swimsuits for myself and my daughter. We are unsure about the swimming part, but it’s fine to bring one. Modest swimwear will work for me since I’m on the heavy side.

I have checked a website that sells single piece swimsuits. I’m surprised that Lime Ricki offers 3X sizes. It would better fit me, or I would go for size 4X.

Besides the simple yet stylish design, the swimsuits are made of comfortable materials. I’m glad they have this line for plus-size women. I could comfortably have fun in the sun with all the support I need to enjoy the beach. 

A Balanced Vacation

Does your hectic schedule and the stress of daily obligations have you wishing you could escape to a land of peace and tranquility? Are those wishes derailed by memories of past vacations when you returned home exhausted from racing around to various attractions and sleep deprived because unfamiliar noises kept you awake? If that sounds familiar to you, it’s time for you to pursue a vacation destination in a peaceful place where beauty and serenity abound. Take a moment to visualize the following vacation scenario.

You arrive at your destination and are immediately awed by the beautiful, majestic mountains, the absence of man-made noise and the expansive views you have from the cozy cabin that will be your home away from home for the duration of your visit. Amenities await you that include everything from a hot tub to rocking chairs on the porch. You have the perfect set-up for a vacation alone or for a romantic escape that is long over due. Book now while this vision is fresh in your mind.

You can enjoy the activities that are offered at and near vacation resorts without exhausting yourself. The key is to be selective with the number of activities you want to pursue and to balance those with plenty of relaxation time. Go ahead and go fishing, hiking, biking, visit local attractions or go shopping. Just be sure to balance that with time spent sitting by the fire, relaxing in the hot tub or quietly watching a spectacular sunset.

You are going to deal with a currency you may not be too familiar with and it is also possible that you do not know how to speak their language. Do not worry though because you can still enjoy the beauty of Bali, Indonesia as long as you know some tips.

1. Get to know the places you want to visit.

If you would like to get to nusa dua bali indonesia, you have to be familiar with how you are going to get there. The capital city will give you a wide range of luxury hotels and resorts that will fit your taste. In all places that you want to visit, know how you are going to get there and what transportation you are going to ride.

2. There is a dress code in some of the hangout spots in Bali.

You may think that just because you are in Bali, you can get away with beach wear and chill outfits but on the contrary, there are some places wherein you will not be allowed to enter when you are wearing flip flops. Research about the place ahead of time to avoid the embarrassment.

3. Respect their customs.

What makes Bali a highly spiritual experience is their strong belief in religion. While you may not share the same religion, you have to learn to respect their religion and their culture. By doing this, you will begin to feel the magic of the island. You will realize why it is highly different from all the other islands that you have visited in the past.

4. There are wild and stray animals.

There are a lot of animals in Bali and while they are naturally cute, remember that being bitten can give you rabies. There are some serious diseases that you may acquire if you are not careful. Also, take good care of your things as the monkeys in Bali are known to get things that are unattended. They may even get items that you are holding.

Remember that Bali is a wonderful place that is unlike anything that you will see on Earth. Respect it and love it.
