Thinking About Educational Travel Destinations?

thumb SPAIN11 Thinking About Educational Travel Destinations?Taking educational travel trips to any destination is something that can and should be done for people of all ages, not just students who are in school. There is always much to learn while traveling through a new place, and many people notice that even when they visit some destination that they have been to many times before, they always learn something new. As far as school trips are concerned, they are becoming increasingly popular, and educational travel is experiencing a surge in participants in recent years.

There are many schools and community groups alike that are organizing all kinds of trips as part of the curriculum and also for pure personal fulfillment. Participants are able to experience first hand the different cultures and atmospheres of the places they visit, which provides more learning capability than just reading about a destination in a book. One of the reasons that these types of trips are so popular is the fact that groups traveling are entitled to special rates and discounts in many different areas, as opposed to what the single traveler receives. If you have a child who is planning on going on an educational travel trip with his or her class, rest assured that you will save money over just sending your child into the world alone or just with a friend. In addition, should your child be traveling with his or her class, you will rest a little easier while they are gone knowing that they are under the supervision of peers, chaperones and teachers.

thumb SPAINAND112 Thinking About Educational Travel Destinations?The everlasting impression that educational travel can leave on anyone of any age is oftentimes significant, and may open doors to all kinds of possibilities regarding what their outlook on the world as a whole is. This type of travel can really make learning fun, especially since many people would rather go to a destination than sit in a classroom reading about it! Being inspired is one of the most common effects of traveling to some foreign destination, which is also much more exciting than any uninspiring class room. Oftentimes people who partake in these types of adventures claim that they have such a great time that they do not even really realizing that they are learning.

If you think you may be interested in this type of experience, in order to save money you should start with doing a search for any groups in your community who may be planning a trip. However, if you choose to go alone or with just one other person, your experience will be enlightening, stimulating and inspiring whenever you participate in educational travel.

20 Things Never To Forget For A Picnic

CH7826 thumb 150x150 20 Things Never To Forget For A PicnicWhen I was growing up, our family outings usually included a fun picnic beside a gently rolling stream somewhere. We always found great places to go that wasn’t always the city park. A patch of public land here; a bend in the river there! If you like to go on picnics it is kind of a drag when you’ve packed great food, but forgot to bring the blanket or even left out the paper plates. The best thing to do so you don’t forget something is to keep a basic list of items needed for a picnic. Here is our list.

 1. Food

 This includes the main course, side dishes, condiments, bread, vegetables and dessert.

 Picnics can have eating easy-to-cart-around foods. Fried chicken, sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs are all good examples. Some people like to cook at picnics and some people just like to bring food and snacks.

 are good examples.

 2. Drinks

 It is important to stay hydrated during a picnic with all of the frisbee throwing or football tossing. Bring water, sodas, fruit drinks, beer, wine, coffee, tea or anything else you like to drink. Always be safe if you are drinking alcohol. Have a designated driver and follow park rules.

 3. Plates & Cups

 We always used disposable plates and cups, but nowadays we are cognizant of the fact that Styrofoam products are not eco-friendly and can cause harm to the environment. Avoid using plastics too, unless you plan on recycling.

 4. Utensils

 Include all of the basics including knives to cut things with.

 5. Serving Utensils

 Usually something needs to be cut, so bring a knife with a serrated edge along with serving spoons and forks.

 6. Blanket or Table Cloth

 If using it on the ground, it may be advisable to use a plastic liner underneath the blanket.

 7. Napkins

 A must have. Bring more than enough. Whatever you don’t use can be brought back home.

 8. Towelettes

 Wet towelettes are great for clean up if restrooms are not nearby. They can be used to clean a surface or a face.

 9. Trash Bags

 Never leave trash after your picnic. Be responsible and get rid of your garbage.

 10. Canopy

picnic 150x150 20 Things Never To Forget For A Picnic This is not a requirement, but it is sure handy to have extra shade on a sunny day. It also offers a nice base for a picnic with a lot of people.

 11. Portable Table & Chairs

 Bring collapsible tables and chairs. These can be folding chairs, camp chairs & tables. There are plenty to choose from at your local sporting goods store.

 12. Music

 CD players or iPod docks are a great source of music that can be custom tailored for your listening pleasure.

 13. Bug Spray, Aspirin, Antacid, Band Aids, Sun Screen

 You need all the short term medical basics at your picnic. Kids will inevitably get scrapes and you will probably get a headache from all the smiling you will be doing enjoying yourself.

 14. Ice

 Bring several bags of ice to not only cool drinks, but to use in your cups.

 15. Leftovers Containers

 It’s easier to carry food to a picnic than to bring it back home without the appropriate containers, so don’t forget to include extra containers. Otherwise you may be throwing out good food.

 16. Entertainment

 You may want to include things like playing cards, badminton sets, footballs, frisbees, board games or whatever you will think will be fun. Try to bring things that will be used by a group rather than an individual.

 17. Camera

 If you brought your phone, you can use the camera that comes with it, but bring a nicer camera if you have one. Don’t let these memories disappear.

 18. Portable Grill

 If you like to cook on location, bring a grill or use one at a park if they have one. Include charcoal, lighter fluid, tongs, spatula and a grill brush for cleaning.

 19. Flashlights

 You may be at your picnic having fun until after dark. Bring flashlights or lanterns just in case you need them.

 20. Toilet Paper

 It never hurts to bring a couple of spare rolls of toilet paper on any picnic. Just saying!

picnic 2 150x150 20 Things Never To Forget For A PicnicBe flexible with what you bring to your own picnic. Add things or delete things, but make it fun! Picnics are all about getting together with people you care about. So invite that annoying Uncle that talks too much, your parents, all of your siblings and their kids, your family friends.

About eleven o’clock they will have their coffee with a snack. If it is not too early for you, you can even try one of their many beers on offer. Lunch is normally about two o’clock in the afternoon.
