What Your Luggage Tells Others About You

Written by Flor Bonifacio

Airports are fascinating places. Inrepparttar midst of allrepparttar 142818 rush isrepparttar 142819 enforced waiting. Waiting that people make use of in all sorts of ways. One ofrepparttar 142820 things that I enjoy most doing is looking at people’s luggage and imagining what they do for a living, where they’ve been, where they’re going to and what they might be like if I knew them.

There are two fertile points where I do my luggage musings. The first one is on departure as I queue up to check in my luggage withrepparttar 142821 rest ofrepparttar 142822 throng. The other is upon arrival as I wait for my belongings inrepparttar 142823 luggage carousel.

There arerepparttar 142824 easy to decipher luggages. One of them isrepparttar 142825 standard airline sized black luggage with wheels and retractable handles that most corporate executives –everrepparttar 142826 efficient time managers - carry. Most of these time saver luggages do not end up in carousels nor are they checked in, as they now fall intorepparttar 142827 hand-carry luggage that can be wheeled (just) alongrepparttar 142828 jumbo jet’s tiny middle aisle, stored inrepparttar 142829 overhead lockers (again just), and whisked out ofrepparttar 142830 plane andrepparttar 142831 airport forrepparttar 142832 next boardroom meeting halfway aroundrepparttar 142833 globe,

Another easy to figure out luggage isrepparttar 142834 humongous backpack carried byrepparttar 142835 globe-trotting young person out to experiencerepparttar 142836 world on a tight budget. Their backpacks are normally double their size and weight and in them I would imagine would be blankets not usually provided in cheap backpacker hostels and pots and pans that might come in handy when they run out of money and need to camp out forrepparttar 142837 night.

A hard one for me isrepparttar 142838 hard case Samsonite luggage andrepparttar 142839 person that comes with it. They seem to fall into all sorts of categories. They could be rich widows who are going to Europe to while away their time and need a few Samsonite hard case luggages with combination locks to secure their diamonds and pearls.

Last Minute National Park Vacations

Written by Gregg Strand

Vacationing at national parks is probablyrepparttar most exciting and adventurous travel any family will enjoy in their lifetimes. There's just so much to see and do. However, planning a national park visit also requires more planning than a "normal" vacation. Why?

As you can imagine, our national parks, and those of Canada and most nations, are treasured and protected wilderness. The pristine vistas and natural wonders are part of any country's national heritage and should be preserved in their natural state as much as possible. We can all appreciate this but it makes visitingrepparttar 142748 parks a little more challenging.

Some hotels and lodging are available inside most parks butrepparttar 142749 number of in-park accomodations is limited, as they should be. Can you imaginerepparttar 142750 result of building more and more lodging facilities to accomodaterepparttar 142751 literally millions of visitors that travel torepparttar 142752 most popular parks? Soonrepparttar 142753 wilderness would be lost in a sea of various types of dwellings. So,repparttar 142754 new lodging facilities are being built near park property, not within it. But there is still a problem if you want to visit a park atrepparttar 142755 last minute.

Unfortunately, even withrepparttar 142756 expansion of nearby lodging,repparttar 142757 demand is so great that it can be very difficult to find last minute lodging for national parks. There are usually available rooms butrepparttar 142758 problem is finding them. If you go to a general search engine and enter a search for lodging options at any popular national park,repparttar 142759 problem is not that you won't find any sites, but justrepparttar 142760 opposite.
