Why It’s Never the Perfect Time to Travel

With the year just beginning, many will be thinking of vacations and trips around the world. They’ll be pondering exotic locations and amazing adventures. And then abandoning those dreams as rapidly as they were thought up. Something will come up and plans will be put…

No more excuses, stop telling yourself that you will wait until next year, or when the money’s right.  Traveling is just like having a kid, you are never ready, so just do it already.  The time is never right and that’s what this blog is about, just pulling the trigger.   Book your travel at the end of this blog or it will self destruct in 5…4…3.. just kidding, or am I? 

With the year just beginning, many will be thinking of vacations and trips around the world. They’ll be pondering exotic locations and amazing adventures.  I don’t know about you but I love anything exotic… cars, animals, adventures or even foreplay.  Make your vacation kinky, who cares, just do it. 

And then abandoning those dreams as rapidly as they were thought up.  Stop giving up on your dreams people!  We are inly on this planet for one ride and some people’s rides are shorter than others, so you better get the most out of it.  I live my life like Vin Diesel’s character in Fast and the Furious… “one quarter mile at a time.”  Just kidding, I wish i lived like that, but alas I don’t but I do take any opportunity I can to make my life better.  Travel is just an excuse to live your life and actually enjoy it for a brief moment.

Something will come up and plans will be put off until tomorrow as you wait for “the right time.” But, here is a secret: it will never be the right time to travel. You will always have some reason to stay at home. You always be able to find an excuse as to why today just isn’t the right day. But the idea that the stars will align and you’ll find the perfect day to step out of your door and into the world is a fantasy.

Today might not be the perfect day — but neither is tomorrow.

Tomorrow, there will still be bills to pay.

Tomorrow, there still won’t be enough money.

Tomorrow, there will still be someone’s wedding to attend or a birthday party to go to.

Tomorrow, there will still be planning to do.

Tomorrow, you still won’t know if you are making the right decision.

Tomorrow, you will still second-guess yourself.

Tomorrow, you’ll still find yourself putting off the preparation for one more day.

Tomorrow, you’ll find another excuse why you can’t go.

Tomorrow, people you know will still sow the seeds of doubt in your head.

Tomorrow, you’ll still worry about all the bad stuff that might happen to you.

Tomorrow, something else will come up.

Tomorrow will never be perfect.

When tomorrow does come, you’ll say to yourself, “Today isn’t the right day. Let’s try again tomorrow.”

But tomorrow will never come. Tomorrow will always be some vague day in the future.

And then one day you’ll find you’ve run out of tomorrows.

And you’ll be filled with nothing but sadness and regret.

So stop waiting.

Stop making excuses. Today is your day.

It’s never the right time to travel.

Forget about tomorrow.

Just go.

It’s a new year.

And it’s full of possibility.

 

Take my advise or not, at least I know that I did take every opportunity and just went with it.  Life your life like a Vin Diesel character and “I am Groot!” Wait, I think I got the quote wrong.

This Camper That Doubles As A Boat Is A Game Changer

The future of road-tripping has arrived and it’s a camper that is also a boat.

Published

on

There are a lot of different ways to vacay. Some people love to travel the globe. See new countries, experience different cultures, and, of course, try new food. Some people don’t need all that and can enjoy themselves just escaping a couple hours out of town for a day or two.

Then there are those “free spirits” I keep hearing about. Those people that just jump in the car and start driving. No real destination in mind. No idea how long the latest adventure will last. More often than not these people are either expert campers… or they have an actual camper. And there’s a new one out there that’s about to blow their minds.

Introducing the Sealander Caravan. Doesn’t look like much, does it? Actually looks kind of small, doesn’t it? Well, there’s more than meets the eye with this mini camper. Because in addition to having wheels and the fact that it can easily be hitched to the back of a truck, it also doubles as a boat!

That’s right. You heard me. This thing operates as both a camper and a boat. So you can cruise down the highway and pull over whenever you like and sleep in your camper. Or you can take that thing out in the water and have a beautiful candlelit dinner with your sweetie in the middle of a lake.

While on the water it’s controlled by an outboard motor and can go up to 20-25 miles per hour. And the inside is practically a transformer. There’s a bench and table configuration that can accommodate seating for four. Then you can remove the table and fold out the benches to make a bed that easily fits two people. You can even get yours upgraded to include a bathroom and cooking utilities!

Now I know what you’re thinking. How much does this brilliant invention cost? Well, it’s actually pretty reasonable! The most basic model runs at around $17,000. And then the price will obviously go up from there as you customize and add more features.

And that’s not all! While you need a special license to drive most boats, there is no special license required to take this beauty out on the water! It meets all safety requirements for both land and water around the world. Be right back, I’ve got to buy one of these like now!

You May Be Taking A Flying Taxi In The Very Near Future

Ok, so I stretched the truth a little bit. Yes, flying taxis may soon be a very real thing. But you’ll probably have to be in New Zealand to take one. See! it’s not technically a lie! It was just a really dirty trick. For which I am very, very sorry. But can we please focus on what really matters here? New Zealand’s about to have flying taxis for goodness sake!

The recent announcement goes along with their grander plan of having absolutely zero emissions as a country by as early as 2050. An ambitious goal to say the least. But these electric flying taxis are a great step in the right direction.

Obviously, our cars are one of the greatest contributors to the dangerous emissions that are damaging our ozone layer. So if we can find ways to get as many cars off the road as possible, we would all be better off. And just imagine not having to deal with traffic ever again!

As we all know by now, many people and even companies have been trying for years to get us as a society past our dependency on fossil fuels. There have already been many helpful and effective advancements in the use of solar and wind power. And electric anything is the next big phase.

There are already plenty of electric car options out there that require very little gas and are doing wonders for the environment. But an actual flying electric alternative? Now that would really be something special.

And as previously mentioned, New Zealand is at the forefront of the flying electric transportation revolution, thanks to flying car company, Kitty Hawk. They have already seen successful test runs of their prototype that they have named Cora. In fact, the prototype has been so successful and has already garnered so much attention that the New Zealand government is already pushing for Kitty Hawk to partner with them in making them taxis available to the public.

And it’s easy to understand why when you learn that they can travel as fast as 93 miles an hour and for as long as 62 miles. How much more do you really need from a taxi anyway?!

Further details are still unknown at this time. But it’s safe to say we will be seeing these incredible machines put to use in the next five years or so. The only question now is: how much will a fare in one of these flying taxis cost?!
