We Used the Bus to Visit Each Other

When my boyfriend moved 200 miles away, I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to survive a long distance relationship. We decided to just end things, but we both realized that we missed each other too much. Neither of us has a dependable enough car to travel back and forth, but that did not keep us from visiting one another as often as possible. We looked at all of our options, and it was easy enough to figure out that taking a bus to visit was the best way, especially since we found Greyhound promo codes that made the trip even cheaper for us.

It’s Time to Get Away

I can not remember a winter when we had more snow than we do right now. I know that it is winter in New England and we can all expect a lot of different types of weather but I am so tired of living here. The people that live here are all going on vacations and I think that is something that I need to do. The cheap spain holidays that I am finding online are actually a lot cheaper than if I were to go to the other side of the United States, say to California. I want to be able to take my husband but he said that he did not want to go so I am going all by myself. Continue reading

Spending Time Together As a Family

Years seem to have a habit of just flying away without even realizing it. One day my kids are in diapers, and the next day they are wanting to wear makeup or play football. When I realized that it had been three years since we took a family holiday, I decided to do something about it. Life does get busy, but our family is definitely worth the time and effort to make it slow down a bit, if even just for a week or so. When I found the Greenstone Lodge, I was really excited to see that it was definitely in our price range.

We have been to New Zealand before, but it was just to attend a family wedding. We were only there for two days, and we always said we wanted to go back. That is why I started looking at New Zealand first, and I am glad because I found the perfect house for us. We have always been an active family, even if our activities are usually done individually instead of together as a family. Continue reading

Best Locations in Greece for Learning Yoga

I am going to be in Greece for the next year, as part of an extended study abroad program, and one thing that I would like to do while I am here, is to learn yoga. I have done a little bit of yoga before in the past, but I have never really done it enough to see any results form it. I think that it could really help to improve my life, so I am going to start looking for the best yoga in greece locations; in particular, I want to find a great place to learn as a person who is a beginner in Yoga.

I hope to learn a lot of positions and poses for yoga, but I imagine that a lot of them take many years of practice before you have the core strength and body control in order to pull them off. I am not sure if that will be the case, but I feel reasonably assured that it is. Anyway, for now, I am mostly just concerned with beginner’s yoga. I want to find a class that will be right for someone who has almost no previous exposure to yoga.

I plan on keeping up the habit of doing yoga for many years to come, because I think it could really help to improve my body for the best. I guess that I will try to look for locations close to where I am staying in Greece. I am also concerned with the price and I really hope to find some place that is not that expensive. I do not have a lot of money right now, as I am college student, and I do not have a job. As such, I will need to find a place that will work out with my finances.

Most Important Places to Visit While I Am in Eastern Europe?

Czestochowa, Poland - August 11, 2011 - Pilgrims from Cracow arrive to ...I am really blessed that I have been able to receive a grant to continue my art history studies in Cracow, Poland. It is sort of a convoluted story, but some time ago I met an extremely nice widow from Poland. She shared my interest in Art history and I did some work around her estate outside of New Haven, Connecticut. It never crossed my mind that she would keep track of my studies or have any interest in where I studied. However she provided me with this grant when I graduated and sent me a nice note too. She is not in the country now and I am going to leave for Europe before she returns. Now I am thinking about how I can take the best advantage of the opportunity.

Cracow is one of best places in Europe for a person with my interests, but it shall not be too terribly long before I want to go further afield. Continue reading
