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.

Summer Destination 2014

How many times have you been to Baguio? Do you have plans of going back to the summer capital when the school year is over?

I would love to spend summer in Baguio. The last time I went there was in the early part of 2000 to attend a health workshop. The health reporters from various newspaper organizations were billeted in a hotel. We were there for a couple of days but we were not at liberty to roam around the city due to the workshop’s tight schedule. The only time we were able to buy pasalubong was on the last day of the workshop. And the pasalubong items were even bought at the hotel lobby.

If given a chance I would love to go back to Baguio. There’s so much in Baguio that I want to explore. Maybe a side trip to Benguet and Sagada would also be a good idea. I’ve heard and read so much about these places and I want to witness the natural wonders and beauty that I can only admire through photographs.

Various reviews online will surely help me find inexpensive cottages to accommodate me and my family for a few days while we are in the summer capital. I just wish my husband will be more open-minded when it comes to the idea of traveling as a family.
