C’mon and tag me up!

With the help of used-to-be military exclusive GPS or Global Positioning Satellites, any one can learn the exact location of where they are actually in. Anyone can tag him/herself on their location at any given time, and tell everyone about it through social media. If you are in China, you can tell everybody by using a smartphone. If you have traveled and arrived at the United Kingdom, you can shout to the world that you are there by activating your GPS, tag your location, and share it through social media. Basically where ever you are, you can tell everybody where you are in through this amazing geo-tagging feature of every smart phone that we have right now.

The main drawback of this feature is that if it is used too much, it can complicate some things. Some people will tend to use this feature too much, it can attract some unwanted personalities to draw in to your life. Even if you are in the outskirts of Scotland, any one can know once you have shared to social media. This is a concern for all of us as it can be used against us eventually.

GPS features can be tricky at times, so make sure use them with caution. Safe travels are happy travels!

Traveling in strange lands

May it be traveling or just plain accidental, staying or dropping by in an unfamiliar place can sometimes be a bit awkward and the feeling of uneasiness is definitely inevitable. For example, staying or traveling in Japan will create a misconception that communication will be a big problem (in which it actually is), though it shouldn’t hamper a backpacker to not go into an adventure on that very nice country. Take for example in Tokyo, it is the country’s main business district, won’t give you much problems if you are articulate in using the universal language. On the other hand, Osaka, though a little more in tune with the traditional Japanese feel won’t give you problems either. There would be inevitable problems to encounter if you feel like trying out the outskirts and deeper areas such as Gifu, but hey, that shouldn’t prevent you from trying out that place don’t you? ūüôā

What’s even more challenging is that there are places that can generally understand English but couldn’t quite converse straight in English. It’s a bit challenging but definitely worth trying. Take for example the islands of the Philippines, the small island of Coron could give you challenges but the sights there couldn’t stop you from trying. And in Manila or in Cebu, unlike the other places in that country, one can truly feel at home with its rich global communication skills.

The world has a large mix of languages and dialects. Mankind has agreed to use one language in order for everyone to at least understand each other. If it isn’t there are other ways to communicate, and it should not be your excuse to explore the world!

The colorful flora – nature’s colorful wonders

Fascinating color combinations of flowers

 

What makes traveling enjoyable, aside from experiencing unforgettable adventures is the beauty of nature, seen by you first hand.  Whenever I have the time traveling to parts of the nature where it is finest by own vehicle or even by taxi, I always find time to take pictures of flora and even sometimes fauna.

A nice color combination

What makes me fascinated about plants, most particularly its flowers is its colors. They are so vivid and the combination of colors are right on. It is a proud testament that nature has a fun way of saying, “I’m the first to dictate fashion and graphical design, and you’re all just going to follow me”.

Even leaves can give the best color combination

So even while doing budget travels, there is always a cheaper way to enjoy the scenery by looking those greenery and most of the time colorful things. In my opinion, it is always a must to behold on nature’s wonders. Because¬†it is always a the rightful reminder that everything happens not just by the sake¬†of happening, but it was intended to happen that way and it always has a reason and purpose.

Sun will rise and set and so on and on

Gifu, Japan Sunset

What’s keeping me fascinated about the Sun’s behavior, may it be sunset or sunrise, is it always remind me of hope, future and the beginning of an end or the start of the ending. With its majestic and mystical appearance, one can often wonder what will the next day or the coming day will become. And going to¬†the Asian beaches, one can truly enjoy the sight this astronomical sight is doing.

We all need to travel sometimes to unwind and forget for a while the busy and tiring days, may it be for adventure travels or budget travels, it may probably be a must for everyone to at least embark on it just to reset the mind and body and get all refreshed to seize another day, and sunsets and sunrises makes me and/or you reminded of it.

Fascination over something that is basically there and most probably will stay can often be overlooked and missed. The Sun might always be just there, rising and setting, but it is always there to remind me that everything must be done to accomplish something and everything has been done and you cannot change it. Emotive as it may seem, I will always be amazed at the sight of the sun setting and anticipate its rising on the next day.
