Beat the Heat in St George

It can get hot here in Zion—there’s no question about that. And it will probably get hotter as the summer continues. So how do you still enjoy yourself in the blazing heat? Here are a few simple ideas that offer you a chance to stay cool without losing out on the action.


Hit the Trails Early

It’s said that the early bird gets the worm. In the case of hiking, you are going to need to be the early bird, and the worm you’re after is temperatures 20-30 degrees cooler than the main heat of the day. Pretty tasty sounding worm, huh?

The shuttles in Zion National Park start running at 8 o’clock in the morning, and that’s when you should be waiting for them if you want to get a good hike in before the real heat wave. Once you’ve enjoyed a good hike in the morning, it’s time to treat yourself to some relaxation. Most of the hotels in Springdale have pools, so don’t feel like you have to be on a trail the whole day. The wise man takes the afternoon off and enjoys the pool.

The Emerald Pools & The Narrows

Although heading up to the Emerald Pools isn’t 100% shaded, compared to a lot of the other popular trails in Zion, the Emerald Pools trail is a shady paradise. If you miss the early option or choose to spend the morning on some other trail, this route makes a nice escape from the sun in the mid to late afternoon and even offers some refreshing waterfalls part of the year.

The Narrows can be done a few different ways, but if you just want a quick, easy taste of it—and a chance to cool off—then taking the shuttle is the way for you. To access the Narrows this way, ride the shuttle to the very last stop on the canyon. You’ll then head up the Narrows from the bottom. You can’t see all 16 miles of it this way, but you can still experience the majesty and wonder of the Narrows. And best of all, you’re spending 70% of your time knee-deep or less in water.

Outside the Park

A great vacation to Zion National Park is not cheapened by leaving the park and experiencing the other natural beauties of the area. It will enrichen your experience to take a break to swim outside the park. There are two excellent reservoirs within a 30 minute drive of Zion named Quail Creek and Sand Hollow.

Sand Hollow is an almost unbelievably pretty reservoir surrounded by red rock and sand dunes. There is powder-soft sand along a good portion of the shore and a boat launch just in case you had more in mind than just swimming. You’ll find Sand Hollow not nearly as crowded as the park. And most importantly, you’ll find it full of cool, refreshing water.

Making the most of your trip to Zion sometimes means managing the hours you spend under the sun. Be liberal with the sunscreen, drink twice as much water as you think you need, and know when you need to take a break. After all, it’s a vacation, so don’t over work yourself this summer in Zion.

That’s it, that’s how you beat the heat in St George, and if you need a place to lay your head or park your RV in St George, then Temple View is a great option.

Few Tips for the Beginner Photographers

For those who love photography and would like to try it out for the first time, you are likely to find a lot of general information on photography. When other may click on these articles, venture out and be smart. Search for the tips on the specific camera model you have. These are things I learned recently on my visit to a Bryce Canyon lodge for our vacation to Bryce Canyon National Park, or the prettiest national park in the US.

You can look up on how to put up the camera in different situations like photographing during the night, or during up close shoots. There is at least someone who has done some research on how to erect your camera in this different situations and it might be helpful to you.

I’m going to be talking about the T1i, which is one of the best cameras to use for beginners. This is because:

• Improved ergonomics-the T1i has improved ergonomics from the earlier versions of the Canon DSLRs. This has made it easy to shoot in places that the DSLR could not work. All you require is to click on the SET button and all the settings appear on the rear panel. This way, you can be able to change on the default setting in the camera.

• Improved visual- the T1i also has a 3” LCD that is coated to avoid reflection. It provides sharp and bright images that are huge enough you to see.

• Light in weight- the T1i is very light making it ideal to travel with for long distances. It is made of light metal on the lens mount and very tough plastic. This makes it easy to withstand any damage such as falling.

• Single handed shooting- the T1i is very easy to use. It has taken a huge and creative manner to make it the first Canon DSLR that can be operated with one hand. You can actually use one hand to hold the camera and press the PLAY button. The previous Canon DSLRs required the photographer to use both hands to operate it. With one hand in the T1i, you can zoom, scroll and take a photo.

Thus, for a beginner, use the Canon Digital Rebel T1i and you will be amazed at the kind of photos you will produce. Later on, you can try the improved versions of Canon.

Five Golf Tips for Seniors

Flexibility has become critical in our swings as we age

The importance of incorporating sports and leisure to retirees and seniors has been recognized due to the advantageous impact to them. Golf is one of the most popular leisure activities among seniors. This has invigorated them mentally and physically not only as a form of leisure and enjoyment but a good source of exercise. One of our favorite spots to golf is in St George Utah, the climate there makes for a golfers paradise.  This fall we found a great hotel to stay in, so if you’re looking for places to stay in St George look no further.

Many seniors have a wrong perception about the game that as they age, they stopped playing golf because their body can no longer adapt to the requirement of the game. This is entirely a misconception.

Some seniors find golf as a frustrating game for them as they cannot turn the way they used to before. You don’t have to worry because your body as a senior can still have the best enjoyment out from playing golf. With a different style of training approach that fits to the seniors’ needs today, golf has become an extremely interesting for them. The excitement continues for many senior golfers given the training and acceptance what their body can perform today. So, senior golfers will start learning again the way they used when they started golf at a younger age but this time, learning the way on how both their body and mind can enjoy the game.

Turn back the hands of clock and consider five tips below and swinging factors to help resolve the flexibility issue of seniors:

  1. Try for a stance width that is comfortable for you. When feet are closer to each other, it becomes much easier to rotate and transfer your weight. This enhances your capability to backswing and follow through as well as resolves your flexibility issue associated to this moves. This will improve the speed of how you rotate your hips during backswing and distribution of weight on your feet. When backswing is successful, it thus become easier to initiate a forward swing. As you get along, you can try for various stance width gradually to know how it creates speed on club head and eventually improves distance.
  2. Place the lifting effort on the left heel during backswing. While performing a backswing, it is important to pay focus on the amount of rotation on your hip and shoulder. These are the primary sources of power, thus it is important to allow your left heel stayed down that will eventually create more rotation on the backswing. As golfers aged, flexibility becomes an issue and making a full swing would be a problem. On one hand, trying a heel lift would help to make a complete turn possible.
  3. Avoid tension. By all means, try not to feel frustrated about the game because this creates tension. When tension is present, it kills the excitement and devastates your ability to perform well in the game.
  4. Go for a 10-finger grip. The wrist hinges more easily if there is an easy pressure on the hands. Using all fingers to grip the club has surprising results to most senior golfers. It is more comfortable to hold the club without exerting much pressure on the hands. When there is an added hinging on the wrist coupled with softer pressure on the hands, aiming for increased swings on the club and more distance is more likely possible.
  5. Hit the mark by swinging ‘through the ball’. Your main target is to move the ball forward and not entirely hitting the ball. You must completely aim to increase the club head speed and not allowing hitting the ball head alone. Using the proper shaft and clubs plus a combined swinging through a ball can be your ingredient to a real target.

Playing golf has become more exciting as we age. All it takes is proper training and knowledge on how we could utilize our flexibility to adjust with the body that we have today!

Tips for a Safe ATV Snow Riding

The winter season is never a hindrance to get out of the snow and enjoy. ATV riding is one of the best activities to enjoy the snow but before you take off, it is important o learn the basic rules for a safe ATV snow riding. These are some tips that were taught to us during our stay in Zion Canyon, when we did some snow riding with an ATV tour in Utah.

Keep Up with the Basic Safety Policies

  • Regardless of the weather condition, it is crucial to always wear a helmet and other suitable safety and protective gears.
  • For an overnight escapade, it is important to always bring alongside necessary survival items or safety kit.
  • Always check your ATV before heading out especially when you bought a used vehicle and you are about to ride it for the first encounter.
  • Get acquainted with your local and state laws and always obey them.

Your Safety Starts at Ownership

If you love the snow for your ultimate ATV riding, make sure that the vehicle you bought is snow ready. If you wanted to purchase a used or second hand four wheeler all terrain vehicle, be cautious to know how the previous owner have handled the vehicle. Keep everything in good condition from battery life to traction and wind protection. Tire is often one of the overlooked parts in purchasing an ATV. Make sure that there is still enough thread left on the tires to ensure that you get the traction you need while cruising the snow.

Preparations for the First Ride

There is a need to make preparations before your first ride out in the snow. The following areas listed below are some of the aspects that should be taken careful attention:

  • Check for battery. One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle gets going with uninterrupted performance is to charge the battery. People in the northern areas appreciate the necessity of a warmed and freshly charged battery. It is a difficult situation especially when your ATV stopped in the middle of nowhere. Thus, it is important that keep your ATV garaged and its battery always charged. Also, you need to test if the battery charges before taking off. A trickle charger is also necessary to slowly charge your battery basically in colder nights. When the temperature reaches to sub zero, keep your battery always charged.
  • Fluid Levels. Always inspect that all fluids have been filled up before going out to enjoy your ATV snow riding. Fluids like water, oil, gas, antifreeze, etc are very essential to ensure that your vehicle gets going smoothly. If any of these fluids gets low will cause the engine to fail and your vehicle might stop running leaving you behind in the middle of the snow. Always inspect your coolant if it gets the right amount of antifreeze. To guarantee a balanced antifreeze mix, there are available antifreeze kits in the market.
  • Wind Protection. Heavy winds are likely to be one of the intervening factors in enjoying your ATV riding in the snow. When the temperature drops to almost zero, one who is exposed outside will basically suffer from frostbite. You must have proper protection from the risk of high winds such as windshields, handle bar or gauntlet to secure your hands from extreme cold.
  • Tire Traction. ATV tires should be properly equipped to ensure that it can stand heavy snow and ice. Before going out, make sure that your tires are snow ready and if possible, provide tire chains to increase traction. Tire chains are also helpful specifically in plowing snow you’re your ATV. Another thing is to make sure that your tires are inflated accurately because compared to other vehicles, your ATV takes much higher pounding. There are better options of tire chains which you can buy either online or in local shops.

It is always necessary to read your ATV’s user manual before you deploy outside for a real ride. However, boring in detail, you may never sure the peculiarity of ATV especially those purchased on second hand basis.

Enjoying the Snow Outside 

  • If probable you don’t want to get stuck alone in the middle of the cold, thus, on bring along with a buddy during your first ride.
  • Be careful not to weigh yourself with too much heaviness. This will cause the snow to turn into ice under your tires that might cause you to get stuck.
  • Your trail on summer is never the same to navigate during the winter. Before you decide for a ride outside, make familiar with the route. Of course, you don’t want to get lost in the trail of snowy fields.

Snow is never a reason to enjoy your ATV riding as in much fun in the dirt. Follow the basic rules and get prepared for much excitement.

Reuse: Avoid disposable products. Reuse bags or bring along a cloth, no space or weigh, and avoid using plastic bags. Choose rechargeable batteries. Try not to use plastic containers and if necessary, wash them and give them a new use.

Reduce. You have to minimize power consumption. Do not light up unless absolutely necessary. Turn it off when you leave. In places where you are, monitors water consumption; choose shower instead of bath and do not stretch out over the account. Five minutes is enough. Staying at a hotel is not essential to remember that you wash the towels daily. Do not turn the air conditioning system when you need it, remember that the temperature should not drop below 24 º. The same with the heating in winter and not more than 22 º. If you’re into nature adapt the rhythm of the sun and if you need your light are LED flashlights, consumption is much lower.

In cities have places to dispose of waste and even to practice recycling. When you are in nature not leave marks when you leave a place leave it as you found them. Take all waste, which are not yours, too. Do not make any withdrawals (animals, plants, fossils, minerals, etc.), Remember that you are not souvenirs. If you remember, take pictures. If you go cycling or hiking paths and respects the specific indications for each. Heed the signs of the place. They have their reason for being. Remember, when in Rome, do as the Romans.

Without a Trace

Traveler in DNA is the love for the planet. We cannot watch him. The common house we share is everyone’s responsibility.

You bought your ticket and you’re list @ to leave home and embark on a new adventure in a destination, or very little known, but it certainly will in you new experiences. From the moment you leave home, your journey begins and the least we expect is that everything goes great! So we cannot let you go without first read these tips to help you survive the wait at the airport and provided endless for many flight hours. Ready, set … Suitcases above and Happy Travels!

Having something to do

It may seem silly, but if you have something to occupy the time you’ll be bored to tears and you can only think about what is being done throughout the trip or how you can achieve world peace. Be sure to bring entertainment and more if you go on a journey of many hours! Do not forget your laptop, books, video games, music or whatever you better work, the important thing is to keep busy. During the journey, forget about the time and if you can hide the clock so do not get impatient. Take advantage of free time or fail to advance any assignment either academic or work, not only will make the trip much shorter but go ahead and take advantage of your obligations.

Take warm clothes

Bring some extra warm clothes in your hand luggage. On short flights within the country, air conditioning is usually not as strong but sometimes in long distance travel, spends a little with the air conditioning and not enough with the blanket you get, if you have the details. So do not let the destination, grab the jacket comes to you better and not let go forgotten in the seat on landing.

Also, do not forget to wear comfortable clothing at all times. There are people that wear tight clothes, like jeans, suffering in your journey because you swollen legs and then want to rip her clothes on the spot. So to avoid that flourish stripper in you in the middle of a flight, traveling with loose, comfortable clothing and help you stay warm. Airports are not fashion shows and traveling convenient!

It may seem the most ill-mannered, but for long trips, more than a right becomes an obligation. It is much more comfortable barefoot on a long journey and you sleep better. Do not forget to bring some extra socks in your handbag in case you get cold feet or if I really do not give you much notice that you have the feet in the air, wearing comfortable shoes and leave the rubber heels for when you get your destiny.


It may seem strange, but many people before getting on the plane to begin stretching and exercise. Think for a moment: Sitting for long hours in such a narrow chair is hard and perhaps the back and legs are the most affected.


To avoid this, you’re not going to ask you to start jogging before you get on the plane or you head a yoga session in the same, but arise from time to time, do stretches and moves the body. You will notice the difference the next day.

Treat yourself to choose hallway, windows or doors emergency

This decision is now down to personal taste. Some people prefer the aisle because it gives less “claustrophobic” feeling and for those with long legs becomes more bearable because you can draw some legs. One of the advantages of being in hall is that you can go for a walk, or stretching to the bathroom when the hell you want without having to run over your fellow travelers. The disadvantage is that during the trip sitting inside pestered occasionally to ask permission to leave. If you are patient and understand that at one time can be the one to do it, this will not mean a problem.

If you do long trips , avoid near the toilet seat because, although you will be close to them when you want to use , these are the busiest in the plane and when finally you achieve sleep places , someone will and will wake you up .

The best seats are undoubtedly located next to the emergency doors, formerly nobody wanted to sit in them because it is scary to be next to a door on a plane without the cast that make you read the responsibilities attributed by you sitting there, but over time people have come to realize that it is one of the most comfortable places to be traveling a lot more space and you do not have to hasten armchairs. So the next time you travel, go ahead and ask if they have available seats emergency, unless you travel with children or seniors, where the crew will re- assign other positions. On the other hand, another star of seats is near the windows because it allows you to enjoy the scenery and rest your head if you want to sleep.


Drink plenty of water. The AC, small changes in pressure, temperature changes, jet lag, among others, sometimes make us forget hydrate.

You fall asleep for hours and then you wake atontadísimo, parched and even more tired than before sleep. Some airlines do not allow liquids up the plane, if so and you are thirsty, water hostess asks if you attend will definitely haunted.

Eat what you fancy

Whether you travel by the country or you decide you expand your horizons, some airlines usually have detail include some kind of snack or full meal that fall beautifully. Most however, are usually very small portions or as your destination, the food may be related to the influences of the city. So if you decide to travel to Asia and do not like spicy food, do not forget to take some cold treats or snacks that you can keep in your handbag and eat more when you want. Avoid taking foods with strong odors or else have some mates furious at the smell or very eager to try what you eat travels.

Enjoy airports

Excited Shopping Woman’s important to stop seeing airports as a place of transit boring as all have their charm. Today you can find stores that were previously limited to being in big malls. So enjoy your time on them, tomato something, read a magazine, or forward purchase some gift you’ve forgotten and do not forget to have fun. It is possible! – About

An adventure called Bath.

Before boarding the plane do not forget to go to the bathroom every time your body will be required as on airplanes, so can be a real challenge. The airplane bathroom is usually small and with a highly dubious comfort and after several hours of flight may give off unpleasant odors. If you get seasick easily, ask someone to accompany you and stay tuned for you during your stay in the service and do not forget to use all the grips that have the bathroom in case of turbulence. Careful where you stick your hand!

With the constant development of technology and cost reductions, the Digital Signage displays become every day more feasible. After all, who can deny the interest in having a digital booklet on a flat screen with moving images and information outside their establishment?

Which one is better LCD Monitors or LED Screen?

When you think of buying a new monitor for your computer, are faced with various offers and models as the most common LCD and LED monitors , but it certainly causes some doubts regarding the differences of these models , so check out these tips .

The LCD monitor has completely changed the way of playing compared to the CRT. This monitor does not use a cathode ray tube, but films of liquid crystal, which when energized, produce the spectrum of colors on the screen.

The big advantage that LCD monitors have brought computer users are: low power consumption , beyond the dimensions that were reduced , it was thinner and lighter , the non-emission of harmful radiation and the ability to form an image almost perfect , stable , flicker- less tiring vision, i.e. , has many points in its favor . But as not all flowers , it has a disadvantage , the disadvantage of the LCD monitor is its LCD screen if the screen is damaged or exposed to air , may emit toxic compounds – which can be a problem for the middle – environment.

Have LED monitors are LCD monitors developments. Because they are made with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have the characteristic of being brighter, besides having a much higher contrast and more vibrant colors than LCD monitors.

With it you can tell that displays the LED base will surely dominate the scene from now on, mainly because they spend less energy.

Advantages and Disadvantages of LCD TVS, LED and plasma
In the case of plasma TVs, the screen works with cells filled with noble gas (such as neon or xenon) suffering an electrical discharge and turns into plasma.

This whole process releases photons (light) and collide with a phosphor layer in front of those cells that do shine. Each image point is composed of three cells, and each coated with a different phosphor color (red, green and blue).

The combination of these three different colors at varying intensities generates the tones required to produce the image. And the simple fact that each cell producing its own light, there is no need of any light to illuminate our screen.

Advantages of Plasma TV

The plasma TVs are more suitable for dark environments due to the higher color fidelity and contrast, which is very good for those who love movies because they offer more vivid and does not depend on light for this to occur , i.e. , they have a quality very good picture .

Are also very good for those who like to watch sports and more modern games because they offer what is called “dynamic resolution ” , which gives us better quality motion scenes .

Furthermore, plasma TVs is super indicated for large environments, as they are much easier and cheaper to be produced in larger sizes. No wonder we see there a lot of giant plasma TV in the windows of shops.

It is worth noting that there are components that can be very useful regardless of what TV you buy devices like Blu – Ray when watching a movie, HDMI cable, which is a great help in image quality, a Home Theater to watch that concert and so on. There are several options for you to be very happy with your choice; the important thing is that you really need to know what is important for you to be satisfied.

– Increased rate of wear and defects due to sources to excite the cells
– Increased electromagnetic emission – ultra violet light
– Device with deeper and heavier
– Difficulty mounting screens smaller than 40
– High power consumption
– To get too close to the screen, it generates a flicker effect that tire the fastest views
– Static images and black bars on the sides of the screen burn
– To be used as PC monitor is less than the LCD because of the resolution in pixels.

– Have more reflective than LCD, leaving a “mirrored” screen if there is direct illumination (open window, for example), a phenomenon also known as CRT monitors.


The LCD TV works with the base being a liquid crystal material, which gives a more translucent or opaque image depending on the electric current applied to it.

Each point on the screen is made up of three sealed cells filled with this material and each cell corresponds to a primary color of light (green, red and blue).

A lamp that generates white light is installed behind the screen and illuminates the cells making up the image.
The colors are thereby formed and thus combine multiple intensities of each of the primary colors.

Advantages of LCD TVs

The LCD TVs are now more suitable for brightly lit rooms, this means you can watch your program with a window behind your TV you will not see any reflection in the image, apart from plasma.
Are also indicated for those who will turn the PC on it or play those games more standing, as of old, for still images used to stain the older plasma TVs. You can also find LCDs available in smaller sizes, which is hard to find in the plasma models, like watching a TV over 42 inches in a small room.

The process of transmission of LED TVs works much like an LCD TV that technology is only slightly different, i.e., instead of that white light in the backlight, the LED TVs you have a set of LEDs with colors primary (red, blue and green) and makes the job of filtering the liquid crystal light is much better done, getting more pure and with a much wider range colors.

This technology also causes light to be exactly the same throughout its usage time and without loss of brightness or color change , regardless of whether or not a burning light. The panel also allows a better adjustment of light intensity.


The screens of LED TVs are much brighter , with much better contrast and more vivid when compared to the model of the LCD , i.e. , have a much better picture , because they are made with light-emitting diode ( LED ) . These TVs can also be much thinner than the other (since there are up to 3 cm thickness).

These TVs meet the standards Eco -friendly because it does not require lamps CCFLs and are completely mercury-free. Do not use lead to fixation of components and makes the disposal and recycling of TVs can be made safely and without impacting the environment.

The LED televisions also meet Energy Star standards, as they have a very low level of power consumption up to 40 % less than the LCD TVs of the same size. What is very good for our pocket? Have more uniform backlight, better resolution on component and HDMI video and are extremely thin, because the LED occupy less space than the lamp (back light).

According to Samsung, the high local value is justified by the device, which technology – as always – is expected to fall in the future. For now, those seeking a bargain without sacrificing LED technology should be content with the 32-inch model, which can be found by R $ 4,799. – Wikipedia

Best Tips On A Long Trip

Choose well your seat

When choosing your seat you have to consider 2 things. Within a row the best seats are the aisle and window. The aisle seat allows you to stretch your legs and to come and go whenever you want without disturbing other passengers. The other star is the window seat to rest your head to sleep or watch the scenery. But most important of all, from my point of view is, not use the seats near the toilets over 10h hour flight or more, the toilets are the busiest site of the plane. It’s where you open and close the door every 2 for 3 and is home to people talk about get to sleep and I’m sure someone will wake you. These are some tips we came up with when traveling to St George to stay in an RV park.


Comfortable clothes for air travel

Long-weekend road-trip advice


This is one of the tips that I find most important when flying. Don’t use tight clothes and jeans that squeeze. I usually wear leggings or long pants sport is more like pajama bottoms. If you wear very tight jeans you may be swollen legs and feel you need to take that pants now!

Very important is to wear a jacket comfortable, the air conditioning on planes usually very strong and can sleep or wake up cold catch cold (I’ll say a whopping), I usually wear a scarf for the neck. Anyway in most long trips is usually a small blanket per passenger.


If you do not like to stay barefoot / a (neither is good) it is best to bring in your carry-on flip-flops and a pair of socks. So you can take off your shoes, you’ll be more comfortable and you can go to the toilet without having to put your shoes. The socks come in handy if you are someone who left you cold feet.

If you need to travel clothing, a very comfortable and safe to shop online is the popular clothing website Zalando, because if we check our tickets online to save money, why not buy everything you need online, whether clothing, accessories, cameras or backpacks?




The issue of food is important, I have traveled to Asia and the menu was much focused plane Asian food. The truth is that I have no trouble eating but there were people who did not like the taste of many species. On the other hand the amounts are not very big. I advise to always carry in your bag some cookies or something to eat. It will come in handy if you are hungry or want to kill time eating.




It is very important to hydrate well and drink water from time to time. The air conditioning and pressure changes can leave us stunned. Normally if you walk towards the end of the plane or at the beginning are the hostesses will offer you water and juice. Some airlines also offer snack bags with free.



Today most long flights have incorporated some individual entertainment system for each passenger, which usually has a few films in Spanish and some in other languages with English subtitles. But I have come to travel in 2013 in an airplane from 10am did not have this system so it’s interesting that you bring something to entertain you. The best is a book or a travel guide of the place you are visiting, pens and paper, mobile battery or music.


Entertainment on board


Stretching exercises on the plane.

Although stretching exercises may seem silly at first glance is very important. The body gets tired of so many hours sitting in the same position, you should at least get up several times during the flight to stretch your legs (to me on a flight reached many legs swell up so many hours with a cowboy sitting tight, I’ve learned the lesson). When I go to the toilet I take to support me with his hands on a wall and stretch your back.

Additional tips for a long trip.


1. Spend the first two weeks as a tourist. Do not trust the time, especially if you have to do things in the country you are visiting, as study, work, do an internship, and so on. Usually towards the end of a long stay will have to solve issues such as paperwork, get rid of the things addressed, delivered in perfect condition place of lodging, and so on.

2. Browse local food and learn to cook the dishes Gastronomy is an important part of cultures. If you want to know a country thoroughly, must have basic knowledge of the local diet.

3. Travel light. Bring many things always backfire. Travelling with luggage light and practical, like a backpack, lighten the complications of a trip.

4. Not following a guidebook. The guides contain information only from the most representative. One never knows until a city is not lost on her.

5. Studied the language before. Apart from the late survival of knowing a language, the locals always appreciate the effort to learn their language.

6. Living with the locals. Just living with the local people can get to know a culture.

7. If possible, live with a host family. Maybe sacrifice a bit of comfort, but stay with a native family represents a good opportunity to know the daily life of the country.

8. Find an activity outside of school. When studying in another country do an activity outside of school opens doors to other social circles.

9. Keeping a journal. At the end of trip would appreciate having written your memoirs.
