Posted on December 25, 2007 by dorisch

Well, we had just returned from a seven day cruise in Hawaii and this was one of the best vacation experience we had. The truth was, months before deciding on this cruise option, I had so many cruise critics and negative reviews about the Pride of America but as an adventurous traveler, I had ignored the naysayers and went ahead with this cruise. And I couldn’t tell you how much we enjoyed this cruise experience. Read the rest of this entry →

Posted on December 12, 2007 by dorisch

Cruise holidays can really be a magical experience and in this article I want to share about the importance of you and your family getting to experience a special time like this with one another, it will be very memorable to say the least.


After reading so many good reports on cruises in travel magazines, I am almost convinced that anyone that gets the chance to go on a cruise of any sort should very much choose to do so because it will be one of the best times you can ever have. You will be so thrilled with the variety of things that there are to do whenever you go on cruises because really, whether you have children with you or not there is something there for everybody, no matter what your choice of fun is.

Posted on December 10, 2007 by dorisch

Finally, we have landed on the shores of Waikiki, and that is after a 15 hours flight plus 12 hours of transit. With seventeen hours time difference, you can imagine how I’m feeling after not having enough and good sleep in the last three days. While I will be posting our travel reports during our time in Honolulu, I do need some good sleep before I can think more. Til then, I haven’t forsaken this blgo and more posts are coming on the way!

bungy jumping? anyone? 0

Posted on December 07, 2007 by dorisch

Oh well, let’s face it. Some people prefer to invest in a popcorn machine and enjoy a movie with their freshly made popcorn while others prefer to be out there doing something more adventurous.

Some people love anything that is new. Some people love anything that is extreme. Put both of those key elements together and it is easy to see how bungy jumping very quickly went from being one individual inventing an elastic rope and tossing himself off high structures to a legitimate sport which has gained worldwide popularity in a relatively short period of time. Twenty-five years ago no one had heard of bungy jumping; today, it is all the rage– everywhere!

Bungy jumping is one sport for which the aspect of newness is constant. Whether a person is attempting his very first jump or has made it a consistent part of his lifestyle, the element of adventure is such that each and every jump is a fresh experience. Even if you frequent the same bungy jumping sites on a regular basis, this is a sport in which every experience is different, and each time feels like the first time. Adventure-seekers of all ages and backgrounds will delight in this factor, because no matter how long you engage in the sport of bungy jumping it is something which will never become routine. The excitement is present whether it is your first jump or your twentieth!

The overwhelming sense of adventure helps in making bungy jumping so popular. There are many people who are naturally drawn to all of the aspects of thrill-seeking, from the adrenalin rush it has on one’s entire system to the knowledge that one is essentially risking life and limb and hoping to win the game. There are no other sports that compare in these factors, which makes bungy jumping quite unique.
