The world we live in is a scary place full of danger and you should always be on guard, especially when alone.  Women should definitely be aware of their surroundings while in public.  

Unfortunately, there are predators everywhere and they are waiting for you to be caught off guard.  

You never know when danger will strike, just like it did for Savannah Nguyen’s mother of Appleton, Wisconsin. She was almost a victim of a ruthless crime syndicate that preys on women who are alone.

 

 

In today’s wild world, it’s important to be cautious of your surroundings and thankfully Savannah’s mom was and acted accordingly to avoid danger.  

She was leaving the local mall and was parked in an empty section of the parking lot until an SUV with dark tinted windows pulled up next to her car.  She thought that was weird since every other space in the entire parking lot was empty… she thought that was odd.

 

The mother of four felt immediately uneasy and wanted to get into her car quickly, but she struggled with her keys.

Once in her car, she noticed that there was something under her windshield wiper, but instead of getting out, she locked her doors, started up her car and sped away.  

 

Something in her gut just told her to drive away, and thankfully she did.  She could see whatever was under her wiper blade was flapping away in the wind, but she didn’t stop until she was safe in her own garage.

Her mother rushes into the house and tells her daughter all about what had happened and they investigated what was under her wiper blade.

When they looked under the blade, they found a small plastic bag with a ring inside and a note written on the bag.  The note said the ring was a gift and was free.

 

When Savannah realized what was happening she freaked out, her mother was almost a victim of human trafficking.  She had heard stories of women finding things under their wiper blade and when they got out to investigate, they were abducted.  

Luckily, her mother felt uneasy when that SUV drove up next to her car and she got out of there before investigating.  

 

Savannah wanted to get the word out so she shared her mother’s story on Facebook and the response was epic.  The next key step is for you to share this story and get the word out that human trafficking is real and is closer to home than you could ever expect.  Women and children are getting abducted all over America in big cities and small towns.  

Be safe out there, be aware of your surroundings and if you feel something is off, get out of there and tell someone.

Beautifully Cheap European Vacations

  

Published

on





The European hotspots are consistently busy and typically not very affordable, so let’s skip Barcelona, Marseille and the other trendy destinations. If you want to save big on your summer holiday(s), try visiting one of these cheaper destinations for all the bang with half the buck.

Malta

     Sure Malta isn’t as cheap as you may wish, but it’s still much more affordable than hotspots like Lisbon or Sorrento. Head to Sliema for a hip beach town filled with designer shops and trendy cafes that won’t totally break your budget. The nightlife is wild and fun and the beaches are gorgeous.  

Portugal

      Obviously, major beach cities like Lisbon will break your budget wide open, but Portugal has plenty of affordable alternatives. Try Algarve, just down the road from popular Lisbon but nearly half the cost. Enjoy over 300 sunny days a year, warm waters and some of the best surf on the Atlantic coast. This small beach region is a gem and should be visited even if only for a few days. 

Cyprus

     The ancient Mediterranean beach city of Paphos in Cyprus is the perfect beach destination. Enjoy ancient ruins of the Greco-Roman empires while basking in the warm sun. The city comes alive in the warm summer months and visitors will enjoy the variety of restaurants, castles, and monasteries the old town region has to offer.

Greece

     Greece is the Mecca of Mediterranean beaches and many are extremely expensive, so let’s find an affordable one. Try Cephalonia, a small island that rivals Crete for cheapness. Get the most out of your European beach vacation at this Greek island and have the best trip possible.

 Bulgaria

     OK, hear me out; maybe try a beach destination that isn’t on the ocean. Head to the resort town of Sunny Beach, Bulgaria and save huge on your summer vacation. The Black Sea isn’t salty and has very mild waves; so expect a lake type of vibe with a party atmosphere. The nightlife here gets rowdy and the bars along the beach stay open late.

Croatia

     No longer a well-kept secret, Croatia is now a hotspot for vacationing Europeans. Instead of hitting the hot islands or capital city, try Porec for your budget summer vacation in style. The city is a throwback with rustic architecture and an old town that features cobblestone streets.   The water and beaches are great and the weather couldn’t be better.

Italy

     Everyone wants to visit the Amalfi Coast in Italy, but few of us can afford such a luxurious trip. Instead try to visit the Puglia region, which is much less crowded and offers some really great deals. Check out the resort town of Otranto, which features huge rock pools and rustic beaches. The stone buildings will bring you back in time and the cheap prices will bring you back.

Avoiding Foreign Illness When Traveling

 Traveling is a pleasure, but getting sick on your trip can be a bummer. You work so hard to take time off from your job and you spent so much money on this life-changing vacation… so the last thing you want is to spend your trip lying in a hotel bed, sleeping in a wastebasket. You want to explore, which means you need to stay healthy and virus-free.

Most people don’t know that there are several things you can do that can cut down on the chances of getting sick when you’re on vacation. Our team of health experts decided to pass along four easy tips that are sure to keep you having fun by not getting sick the next time you travel.

DRINK BOTTLED WATER

     Always drinking bottled water will ensure that your water is never full of harmful bacteria and will help you avoid the nasty effects that drinking contaminated water can have on your body. If a bottle of water is opened before you sit down at a restaurant then don’t drink it because there is a good chance that they just filled it up at the tap, kindly ask for a new bottle for your meal even if it costs a little bit more money it is always worth it.

Staying healthy is worth the extra bit of money every time, because if you catch something like Montezuma’s revenge then there is no amount of money you wouldn’t pay to get rid of that awful sickness.

PURIFY YOUR WATER

If you think you might have trouble finding bottled water on your trip then be sure to pack iodine pills beforehand. All you have to do is throw a pill into the water you want to drink and then voila it is good to go. There are also a lot of great options for water purifiers that are great options for on the go.

Check the internet and find a convenient option that works best for you and use it to make sure you are drinking clean water. If you haven’t figured it out by now, clean water is very important to stay healthy. 

DON’T EAT SALAD

     You don’t win friends with salad when you’re traveling. Raw vegetables are usually washed with tap water which can make you very sick. You can be drinking all the clean water in the world, but once you eat some raw vegetables that have been rinsed in contaminated water then you can kiss all your hard work goodbye. Always eat cooked vegetables to avoid getting that contaminated water in your mouth.

BRING AN ANTIBIOTIC

Your doctor will gladly write you a prescription for an antibiotic for you to use when you get sick. Pick up some prescription antibiotics before you head out on your trip just in case you do get caught with one of these awful illnesses so that you can take the appropriate actions to help recover and get back to enjoying your awesome trip.

Are You Really Getting The Most Out Of Your Vacation Time?

  

Published

on





 In a recently published LinkedIn study, an astounding 73% of full-time professionals mentioned that they would forego a job offer if the offering company did not match up with their own expectations. Interestingly, 76% of respondents mentioned that vacation time is very important, if not vital, to their job acceptance. In a digital world that allows individuals to keep track and manage their work at all times, it’s not a surprise that mental “burnout” is creeping up on every industry’s best. To combat this, vacation time is needed to provide the most talented, hardworking, and committed with a break from their professional lives. They need to be given time to recharge and enjoy time outside (figuratively and metaphorically) to live more impactful and positive lives. Unfortunately, corporate America has not allowed this freedom to truly take hold.

     It was noted that 46% of working individuals have mentioned that they do not take 100% of their allowed time off. Of that 46%, 38% mention that there is simply too much work and 28% report that there are no company-wide fillers to ensure their work is completed on-time. While contractually-agreed upon vacation expectations and allowances are legally protected, employees do not feel comfortable taking off excess time. Over half of the respondents reported that while they were able to manage to make an escape to uncharted territories, they still feel the need to consistently keep tabs on their work messages, texts, and emails. Short and sweet, they don’t want to get left behind.

     At the end of the day, if you’re encountering this dilemma (or preparing to face it), be realistic with your professional work and relaxation. If you plan on taking some time off, what can be withheld until your return? If a full two-weeks worth of time away can’t be accommodated, create some shorter, longer-weekend type scenarios. Find a locale that will make the most of your time and money to truly enrich your distance away from the office.

     You’re going out for a refresh – a chance to completely make peace within yourself. If it adds to the helpfulness of the time spent away from coworkers, spend some time with your team and any other important team members to ensure your time away is accounted for and proactively managed. It may be beneficial to even develop an “emergency plan” for the most vital or even all members of the office during their times away from active communication. No matter how senior or how new an employee stands in a company, they all serve important jobs in an organization that needs to be efficiently completed to ensure tenured success. Some of you may have the power, stature, or ability to more freely claim absolute freedom while on vacations. This may come with greater ability but do not allow yourself to completely rupture yourself while you sail across the Caribbean in your yacht. Digital communication is a gift and a curse. Simply, keep your work-life maintained only during very specific intervals in which checking your work number is perfectly acceptable.
