Winter is a time where most people stay indoors, avoid the cold weather, the snow, and simply hibernate the season away, but for me, it’s a mixture of extremes. I do tend to hibernate for the holidays, spending time with family, friends and loved ones, yet I also try to always plan a trip that takes me out into the winter wilderness. No, it’s not because I’m mad, crazed or delusional, but mainly because I find it extremely peaceful.
Stay healthy on the open road
Nothing says freedom, summer or extended vacation like a trip along the open road, whether that’s at home or travelling around your favourite continent. The classic road trip is a staple of American culture; grabbing a few friends and hitting the dusty roads in a beaten up old car is probably the epitome of it! These days “road trips” can include backpacking around Southeast Asia, or train-hopping around Europe, but whatever the method of transportation, extended trips like these are truly life-enriching. If you’re looking to enjoy your next road trip to the max, ensure that you make good health a priority by following these tips.
Teas are among the most delicious (as far as I’m concerned) and healthy botanicals in the world that can be ingested after steeping the herbs in hot water. Most teas have a myriad of health benefits*, ranging from being high in antioxidants to promoting healthy immune function, as well as aiding in stress relief, sleep consistency, bowel regularity, weight loss, among countless others. So when one wonders how this can be so, one must consider the physical connection we humans have to the rest of the living world. Bluntly, all things are connected, from plants to animals to humans, which is why we can drink the essence of a flower or herb and gain something in return.
When traveling the world, anything can happen to you. Believe me, I should know. I’ve been through a brutal respiratory infection in Spain, something worse than the flu in Ireland, I’ve been robbed a couple of times, I’ve been lost, I’ve been stranded, and I’ve been scared. Yet, I’ve found beauty in the world like I never knew existed prior, from the vibrant and versatile cultures to the most phantasmagorical scenery in the natural world. So no matter what negatives may befall you, you must keep on keepin’ on, and never let the possibilities of what might happen stop you… because without travel and curiosity for new experiences, what is life but a stagnant nothingness on repeat?
The Digital Nomad lifestyle is all the craze. After all, who wouldn’t want to run a business from a beachside bar in Bali. Before embarking on a career and lifestyle change, it is vital to consider all angles, which, for U.S. citizens, includes tax obligations. As a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder, you are required to file a tax return declaring your worldwide annually, no matter where you reside.
The other day an avid reader wrote me, asking for my recommendations for a travel stroller; as they explained it, they have a young child that they wish to take overseas to see grandparents in Spain, but were underwhelmed by most choices in their local market. I wrote back with my optimum choice in mind: the YOYO+ Travel Stroller by Babyzen. Why? Because Babyzen is one of the most innovative buggy makers for children safety. The YOYO+ is an easy choice, not only because of its ease of use and feature-rich and accessory-rich lines, but because this stroller was designed for air travel.
