Three Things I Love In The City I Love: San Francisco

Enjoying yourself in San Francisco isn’t hard, but if you’re feeling ambitious and want to see and taste the city like the locals do, here are 3 activities to add to your itinerary.

Drive to the top of Twin Peaks and enjoy sweeping views of the City By The Bay.

The Twin Peaks are right at the center of the city, and the view from the top is incredible. On a clear day (visit early to beat the fog), you’ll have a panoramic view of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Pacific Ocean.  It’s a great spot to appreciate the city’s quirky charm and colorful houses, as well as the spectacular natural beauty of Northern California. Don’t forget your camera!

Visit the Beach Chalet for a pint and some fresh Pacific air.

Walk (recommended) or take a shuttle across Golden Gate Park, all the way to Ocean Beach, where you’ll find the Beach Chalet, a combination brewery/restaurant/beer garden/rest stop for beach goers. If you’re desperate for an ocean view, sit upstairs at the bar. But if you like to drink your beer alfresco, head out to the beer garden, relax on one of the Adirondack chairs and let the salty ocean breeze wash over you. The beer is good, the atmosphere is mellow, and the people are local. It’s pure San Francisco.

Eat like a local.

Eating well in San Francisco isn’t a challenge. It seems like there’s a Michelin starred restaurant on every corner. But if you want to eat like the locals do, head to a taqueria and indulge yourself in a “super burrito,” the delicious staple of Mexican American cuisine, made in a uniquely San Francisco style. A super burrito is  made from an extra large tortilla stuffed with fresh ingredients: guacamole, salsa, rice, sour cream, meat, beans, queso, and hot sauce, which is then wrapped tightly in a neat package of aluminum foil. Burritos are the perfect food for tourists as they are fresh, fast, and delicious. It’s also one of the cheapest ways to eat in the city, as even the finest taqueria won’t charge you more than $7 for this local delicacy.

Try: Gordo Taqueria (3 locations)

For dessert, there’s nothing (and I mean nothing) better than Smitten Ice Cream in Hayes Valley. At Smitten, every serving of ice cream is made to order using liquid nitrogen, raw organic ingredients, and a machine called a “Kelvin” (invented by the owner). In just under a minute, each customer gets exactly the amount and flavor of ice cream they requested, and it tastes fresh, creamy, and indulgent.

Of course, these are just a few of the millions of places to explore in the city I love. Just be careful not to fall under the San Francisco spell, or you might never want to leave!

Road Tripping Across Jordan

We turn away from the airport onto a quiet, winding road. Tiny towns are scattered across the desolate landscape, each one filled with partially constructed buildings that seem to have been abandoned as hastily as they have been built. The structures look new and untouched, as if the owners might return any moment to re-inhabit them.

Bedouin camps dot the landscape between the ghost towns. The makeshift structures are made of tin, cardboard, scraps of cloth, and bits of goat hair; in sharp contrast to their concrete counterparts these portable homes are bustling with life. Children play, goats graze on tiny patches of grass, and women hang clothes on the line. Everything and everyone is covered in dust.

Bedouins ride their camels on the side of the road, and, as the signs predict, goats appear out of nowhere, seemingly unaware of the cars speeding by. We stop and wait while children cross the street on tiny, exhausted donkeys with patchy fur. They tow wooden sleds loaded with brush and scraps. It is startling to see the children working in the hot sun, and we realize yet again that we are a long way from home.

The landscape changes as we turn onto the road for the Dead Sea. There are still Bedouins with camels, but they stand on the side of the road offering rides to tourists. Ramshackle food stands with giant umbrellas are scattered along the beach, accompanied by Coca-Cola signs and plastic chairs. The strange scene reflects the paradox of Jordan; a country steeped in culture and tradition, both blessed and cursed by the natural resources and tourism it attracts.

The road to Madaba brings us back to reality. There are no signs of life, except for a few lost goats that casually cross the road in front of our car. We see a military checkpoint up ahead, and wonder if we should turn around, but it is too late. The guard comes out to meet us, sees that we are tourists, and breaks into a warm smile. He greets us with the usual Jordanian questions. “Where are you from? Are you married? Do you have children? Are you pregnant? Do you like Jordan?”  Jordanian hospitality comes second only to their obsession with family. “Insha’Allah,” we reply. He smiles and points the way to Madaba.

We follow the 3,000-year-old King’s Highway for nearly two hours, passing through town after town on an endless stretch of highway. Locals stand on the side of the road warming their hands over makeshift heaters, and most offer a friendly wave as we pass through. Every town looks the same; a small mosque in the center, roving bands of dogs crossing the road near vacant lots, and women going about their daily business of shopping and child rearing.

The King’s Highway leads us to Wadi Mujib, proudly referred to by our guide in Amman as “The Grand Canyon of Jordan.” We follow the highway along hairpin turns, stopping occasionally to gawk at the crater below. We agree that this is the closest we’ll ever get to seeing the moon, if the moon were inhabited by shaggy goats and laughing Bedouins.

As 2015 begins, extreme weather patterns once again dominate the news. Preparing for our unpredictable British weather, an irritating prospect for many of us, can have disastrous consequences for some – as in the case of those living in flood-risk areas.

Operating during periods of extreme weather, Sort’s main task is to support regular patrol services in tough conditions. The Sort team have undergone rescue training and regularly work alongside other rescue agencies such as fire and mountain rescue teams.

For those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, this has got to be worth a look

Transport Innovation

Most of us have walked to the shops in pleasant weather only to find the heavens open just as we are about to return home loaded down with bags of shopping. Such annoying events need no longer be troublesome if you remember the Transport Innovation service. Most of our major supermarkets offer this freephone facility which enables you to contact local taxi companies to arrange a lift home and dodge the poor weather. Thanks to Transport Innovation, you will arrive safe, warm and dry; rather than cold, wet and grumpy.

Hopefully, we can all continue to support those who offer services to help us avoid, or cope with, weather emergencies. Their skills help to ‘see us through’ and we cannot do without their expertise. Should we lose them, we might, for example, hear a weatherman of the future pronounce: ‘Weather forecast for tonight: dark!’

Its highlights are five hundred etched statues that were manufactured over a time of seven years in the late eighteenth century.

The true name of the sanctuary is Qiongzhu Si and it lies on the Yu’an Mountain that stands northwest of Kunming. The area is perfect as it holds the enchantment of the sanctuary encompassed by woods and waterfalls. There are times it is covered totally by mists and fogs. This is a perfect spot to visit when you are on a China tour or taking in Chinese in China.

Historical background of Bamboo Temple 

The historical backdrop of this temple is more than a thousand years of age; however the sanctuary itself is most certainly not. Since it was first constructed, Qionghzu Si or the Bamboo Temple (as it is famously known today) has been demolished to the ground various times. Initially assembled by the Yuan Dynasty, the last time it was blazed to the ground was in the fifteenth Century. The current sanctuary is the particular case that was manufactured by the Tang Dynasty. There is a legend behind the building of the sanctuary that adds to its persona.

What about the two brothers?

As stated by the story, two siblings from the illustrious family were on a chasing spree in the zone where Kunming is presently arranged. They went over a rhinoceros which fled after seeing them and the siblings pursued it far into the bush. As it arrived at the deeper segment of the woodland, the rhinoceros all of a sudden vanished. Confused, the siblings kept searching for it and risked into a flock of friars. These ministers even at a first look appeared uncommon and they vanished right before their eyes. The siblings’ amazement saw no limits when they uncovered that the ministers had abandoned their strolling trail them.

What Do You Need For the Perfect Bachelor Party ?

Weddings can be a great time where friends can get together and share good times with each other while preparing for the road ahead. When it comes to weddings it is important to maximize the fun and reduce the stress. Many of the friends involved in a wedding for the bride and the groom are in charge of organizing events and parties for everyone involved. If you are someone designated for organizing these events, it is important to keep in mind several factors in order to keep everyone happy and ready to face the final “I do”s.

What Do You Need For the Perfect Bachelor Party ?

What Do You Need For the Perfect Bachelor Party ?

As a friend of the groom, you have certain responsibilities. You are probably on great terms with the groom considering he chose you to plan his events and take part in his ceremony. However, before any of that can happen, fun is the primary goal. One of the most popular ways to have fun before a wedding is to plan a bachelor party. These are a tradition where the groom has one last night of freedom before becoming tied down to a missus. There are many different kinds of bachelor parties, and they often range from mild to extremely wild.

People who live in Sydney know exactly how much fun can be had. When trying to plan a bachelor party, location is everything and there is no better location than Sydney. With a happening nightlife scene, Sydney is excellent for getting a bunch of mates together to help the groom have a great last night out before he settles down. It’s a great idea to check out the local bar scene and to try to take the groom around for a round of drinks to get him loosened up and comfortable. However, it is important to plan ahead and make sure you have an itinerary for the events of the night.

The night could start out on the town and then slowly move back to an apartment. This will involve two more aspects of the night that are highly important: food and entertainment. Drinking games are always a great idea and can be fantastic for getting everyone involved and happy. Food is also an essential for any party and having a large amount and variety of food can be a great decision, especially if you know the groom’s favorites. Next comes another important aspect of the night, the entertainment.

Entertainment can come in many different forms but the one that is most popular (and often a cliché when it comes to bachelor parties) is strippers. Many people consider strippers to be the final hurrah for the bachelor as he will soon be settled down with a wife and will no longer be able to look ably at any woman he wants. However, it is important to gauge what kind of person the groom is and take into account the wishes of the wedding party, the friends and most especially the bride. It can be tacky and tasteless to order a stripper for a groom who is not committed to the idea or gets no enjoyment out of it. Making a mistake like that can ruin a whole night.

So in the end, only four things remain for a perfect bachelor party: great company, drinks, food and entertainment (the best kind of entertainment is just a click away at XXX Bucks, Sydney’s premier bucks party planners). Any combination can lead to a great night with fun and friends. Remember, the main focus is to have everyone together and having a good time.

Sydney Bucks Party: What Happens in Sydney, Stays in Sydney

Last month, I took a trip to visit Sydney, Australia for my best friend’s wedding. I had never been to Sydney before, but considering that’s where my buddy’s wife is from, all the festivities were to take place there. While the wedding was set to happen on the Saturday, I arrived on the Wednesday night. After all, I needed to throw this one-of-a-kind guy a bachelor’s party beforehand that he would remember for the rest of his life.

What would you expect guys in their twenties to have planned for a guy’s night out? Well, strippers of course! We first headed out to this fancy Japanese restaurant in the city’s downtown area. After catching a nice buzz on all the local alcohol provided, we move on to a strip club down the road. Since I had never visited Sydney before, I obviously have never gone to this particular strip club before, but the guys I was with couldn’t stop raving about it. All they kept telling me was, ‘Wait until you see the topless barmaids and topless waitresses. These girls are something else.’ They were not kidding. When I walked into the strip club, these were some of the most beautiful women I have ever laid my eyes on with bodies to die for.

We sat down in a corner booth, and were automatically serviced by one of the topless waitresses named Cindy. She was friendly, giving each of us a smile with every step of the way. Cindy asked us what we wanted to drink for the night, recommending a draft beer. Since it was my best friend’s bachelor party, she decided to surprise us with some shots of fireball whiskey. This bit of alcohol hit the spot. Next thing I knew, she was bringing us over another round of shots.

From there, we decided to branch out from our booth and head to the main area in the middle where the strippers were doing their thing. There were a number of stripping shaking their bodies against the pole. One of them was a blonde named Taj, while there were also two redheads that went by the names of Keesha and Destiny. These girls looked like experts out there on the pole, moving and shaking it in the right way. Naturally, my friends and I started taking the dollar bills out of our wallets and handing it to the ladies one by one. These girls knew they had us in the palm of their hands.

After taking interest in these strippers for countless hours, we went back to our booth to pay our final bill for the topless barmaids. Then, it was finally time to head home. While the wedding ceremony was not nearly as exciting as that bachelor’s party, it was still a beautiful moment to celebrate the love my best friend felt for the girl of his dreams. This trip to Sydney was certainly one to remember. I had gotten to visit a city that I always wanted to check out, spent time at a strip club with the loveliest women and helped my buddy ring in an important moment in his life. Sydney, thanks for the good times.

 

Brisbane: A Wedding Location You’ll Remember Forever

So you’ve set the date for your wedding and you’ve decided on Brisbane for the location. Now the real work gets underway. What is your next step to planning the wedding of your dreams? Where do you even begin?

The Venue

You know you want to get married in Brisbane, but where specifically? Decide whether you want an indoor or an outdoor wedding, as there are plenty of options for both. From beautiful intimate park ceremonies to elaborate hotel ballrooms, it’s entirely up to you. Keep in mind that if you do plan on an outdoor ceremony, you’ll want to have an emergency backup in place in case of nasty weather!

The Dress

Brides planning a budget-conscious wedding will be able to find beautiful gowns well with in their price range, but anyone looking to truly splurge on their dress should consider getting a custom gown from Regalia Bridal Designs. It guarantees you a wholly original dress that suits you as a bride. Now that’s something to hold onto forever and show off to your future kids and grandkids!

The Memories

You’ll want to determine how much to spend on a wedding videographer or photographer, as well as how much you want captured. Getting just the ceremony on film or using the photographer just for official group photos is going to be cheaper than hiring someone who captures the whole day from start to finish. Married couples often laugh and say their wedding day was so busy they barely remember it, so you’ll want a wedding videographer and photographer who can pull together those memories for you. If you’re looking to hire a wedding videographer in Brisbane, Save the Date will be your best choice.

The Guests

Remember, this wedding is about you, so you should invite the people who would make you happy to be there. Sometimes there are obligations to invite friends you’re not close to anymore or family members you don’t get along with, but don’t let that ruin your day! Focus on your close friends and family first. If you have to restrict your guest list to a small number, make sure no one you truly care about is left out. Keep in mind that for out-of-town or overseas guests, you may want to think about setting aside a block of hotel rooms so they have someplace to stay.

The Ceremony

This is an area where you and your soon-to-be spouse should decide the style you want, and then work out the details from there, like you did with the venue. Traditional or informal? Religious or not? Do you want to write your own vows? Who do you want to incorporate? Pull together a loose outline, and as the date gets closer, you can solidify exactly how you want it to go.

There are plenty more details you need to iron out, but Brisbane has no shortage of wedding planners, stylists, wedding bands and vendors who would love to help you make your day perfect. As you meet with them and the day starts coming into sharper focus, pull together a wedding checklist so you can keep track of what still needs to get done. Get started with the basic decisions on this list, and before long you’ll get swept up in the fun of planning!

Get Ready, Ladies! Are You Prepared for the Adventure Travel?

Men aren’t the only ones who crave excite. For women, adventure travel has become so popular that some companies cater to an exclusive female clientele. In seeking destinations for adventure travel, women are no less daring than men and more and more excursions to remote areas of the globe are “co-ed” endeavors.

How Does Adventure Travel For Women Differ From Adventure Travel For Men?

Although adventure travel for women and men shouldn’t differ in any way, the reality is that it does simply because women perceive and experience things in ways that differ from the male viewpoint. This is the very quality that makes traveling to remote regions with both men and woman a broader and more satisfying experience. And for those women who don’t care to be bothered with the male viewpoint on their adventure trek, there are plenty of opportunities for “women only” trips.

What Should Women Consider Before Adventure Travel?

The first issue to be considered when evaluating women’s outdoor adventure travel tours is how fit you are. Like it or not, the fact is that adventure travel requires a higher level of stamina that the average American woman may possess. Talk with your travel agent and ask how demanding the trip will be. It’s possible you may have to go into training for your vacation!

Don’t fail to take into consideration the size of the group. Some people don’t like big groups, while other prefer to be surrounded by a lot of people. It all depends on your tastes. Also ask if you will be sharing accommodations or if you will have some time to yourself in the evenings. Many people can tolerate group travel if they can get some time alone.

Finally, consider how much money you are willing to spend. Remember that it isn’t only the travel package, but also the clothes and equipment that you may need to buy or even the insurance. These additional costs may make you reconsider your alternatives and go for something cheaper.

Benefits Of Adventure Travel For Women

One of the greatest benefits for any person who wants to go for adventure travel is the satisfaction of knowing that he or she was able to withstand all of the challenges. This is specially important for women, who, for centuries, have suffered societal relegation imposed by men. Many women who take adventure travel trips speak of the sense of “empowerment” these exploits provide to them.

Adventure tours for women draw participants who range in age from 35 to 65 years. For the younger women it may seem perfectly normally to go trekking through the Amazon rain forest or lion watching on the plains of the Serengeti but their older counterparts may have been waiting most of their lives to seize these kinds of opportunities.

More than 70% of those who buy a women adventure travel package repeat their experience. Once they get a taste for these difficult situations and find out they can “keep up,” the lure of the next adventure is almost overwhelming. Why not climb a mountain peak or bungee jump over Victoria Falls?

Getting Your Car Ready for a Road Trip!

Finally getting ready to take that road trip you’ve been talking about for so long? While you’re going through and making sure that you’ve got everything in order and ready to go, it’s very important to make sure that your car is good to go, too! With your car properly inspected and in good shape, you can be free to focus on relaxing and enjoying the road.

To help you ensure that your car is ready for your long distance road trip, we recommend the following vehicle inspection checklist. You can also learn more in-depth information from Pro View Vehicle Inspections website.

Checking Your Tires:

Most prone to failure on the road, faulty tires should be at the top of your list during your car inspection. While flat tires caused by road hazards can’t necessarily be prevented, having an available spare is definitely a must. For the overall maintenance of your tires, check to see that they don’t have any uneven tire wear, that the tread isn’t worn to the point where replacement is needed, and of course, that your tires are properly inflated. If necessary, during the inspection of your car, ask your vehicle technician if your tires need balanced or rotated, or if they require an alignment service.

Checking Your Breaks:

While inspecting your car, also inspect the condition of your brakes. Check and see if your brake pads are in good enough condition, or if they need renewed; and, at minimum, check to see if your brake fluid needs serviced.

Checking Your Suspension System:

During your vehicle inspection, also get your suspension system check out and replace any excessively worn or damaged parts. Replacing your car’s worn shocks or struts really do make a difference on the road.

Checking Your Cooling System:

The second most common reason for car failure is a worn cooling system. Before your road trip, a coolant exchange or fluid flush is recommended. Further inspection will also reveal faulty areas that include things like weakened hoses, leaks, or a radiator cap that needs replaced. The proper maintenance, of course, can prevent any failures on the road.

Checking your Transmission:

Because fixing problems with your transmission while on the road will cost you a great deal of both time and money, checking that it is in order, and getting a proper transmission service is definitely something that should be on your vehicle inspection list. As well as making sure all of your belts are in good working condition.

Checking Your Exhaust System:

Since you and your passengers will be spending a great deal of time in the car, it is also important to get your exhaust system checked for any potentially dangerous leaks, and get them taken care of right away.

Checking for General Maintenance:

Although your car’s general maintenance is kept frequently, be sure that if the following maintenance items were not taken car of recently that they’re included in your overall checkup:

– Oil Change,

– Engine Air Filter,

– Power Steering Service,

– Timing Belt Replacements,

– Differential Service, and

– A Routine Tune-Up.

Have your auto technician let you know if any of these things are due for maintenance before you get ready to go.

Checking Air Conditioning & Heating Systems:

While car inspections may overlook this, let your auto technician know if your car’s heating or air-conditioning isn’t working all that well. You obviously don’t want to spend your entire road-trip uncomfortably exposed to the weather.

Checking Your Windshield Wipers & Headlamps:

Also commonly forgotten during car inspections are your windshield wipers and headlamps. Visibility is critical, especially if your going on your trip during the colder seasons. Make sure that your windshield wipers don’t need replaced and that your headlamps are nice and bright so that when you’re sight-seeing, you can actually see!
