be financially wise 0

Posted on October 29, 2007 by dorisch

While in a travel forum the other day, I read the article of a seasoned traveler who has such a strong passion in traveling that he would apply for a cash advance loan just to fulfill his travel cravings. When I read this, it sounds disturbing and do not recommend that anyone apply for a loan just to satisfy his own personal indulgence. Read the rest of this entry →

california’s napa valley 0

Posted on October 29, 2007 by dorisch


California is usually synonymous with beautiful beaches, beautiful people and the glitter and glitz surrounding the movie world, but there’s another side to this beautiful state, a gentler more natural side.  The Napa Valley is within easy driving distance of San Francisco and offers a tranquil alternative to the bustle of the city.

One of the fun things to do in the Napa Valley is to take a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train.  As one of the top train rides in the world, you’ll enjoy a relaxing journey in lovingly restored carriages all dated pre-1950.  Whether you enjoy a romantic evening meal in the dining car as you travel through the valley’s beautiful countryside, or you take the daily tour that allows a stop at two of the local vineyards, this is a local “attraction” that shouldn’t be missed.

some people travel through their noses 0

I know of a friend who is a real travel bug. He can’t stay in one place for more than three months. So, he’s always taking short trips every 2-3 months, traveling to all parts of Asia and will grab every special airfare promotion during festive season. But due to his heavy expenses accumulated in his vacations and personal indulgences, he is a big payday loan applicant. Some people tend to travel through their noses!

how about a honeymoon in Belgium? 0

Posted on October 28, 2007 by dorisch

A look at the city of Belgium tells me that it is an enthralling nation with a dramatic past and a proud present as a center of the European Union. For Medieval romance, a look at some historic and intricately designed buildings, plus outstanding art museums and friendly vibrant people, head to Belgium for your honeymoon.


A honeymoon in Belgium will reveal to you a rich and historic country! This is made up of diverse art, architecture and cuisine waiting to be discovered. Belgium is a relatively small and modest nation by European standards. There are beautifully preserved medieval towns; world class museums and excellent cuisine await you on your Belgian honeymoon.
Brussles, the Belgian capitol doubles as the capital of the European Union and therefore has a distinct cross-national feel. At its heart stands an ornate central square, framed by historic buildings and some fascinating museums. That show case art from ancient to modern times. Brussels also has superb array of restaurants and shopping opportunities. Read the rest of this entry →

shopping online during holidays 0

A good friend of mine is planning to start an online store to cater to busy individuals who have no time to do their last minute festive shopping. Now that she has some good contacts on the merchandise and products, she has to think about getting an efficient shopping cart software for her online store. She found Ashop dot com and was impressed with the easy-to-use interface which allows her to design her shopping cart with ease. With all the features available to support her online store, she can add photos, description and design it in the theme she wanted. Read the rest of this entry →

Stepping into the City of Lights which is Paris will immediately transport you into a world of romanticism. With all the antique buildings that were constructed in the great European periods as your panoramic milieu, you cannot help but fall madly and deeply more in love with your significant other. However, if you are talking about Tokyo sightseeing, your scenery is skyscraping buildings that are seemingly a repeat of the Tower of Babylon.  Read the rest of this entry →

My friends call me shopping freak. I find it hard not to shop when I travel, unless I’m tucked away in an island without no retail stores. Most of the time, I enjoy browsing local stores with a difference, especially if they are specialized in handmade stuff. But with online shopping these days, you don’t even need to travel to buy unique things. The internet has provided more shopping options for those who can’t or who don’t like to travel.
