Opportunities You Gain From Travelling

It is like nature for people to seek out opportunities to their benefits. By gaining opportunities, you have wider access to achieve what you want or what you want to be. That is why opportunities are something hard to find. However, opportunities are not only meant to be found but also to be created.

You can create your own opportunities by travelling. Of course, travelling is more than just spending a few days in a private island and sipping your favourite cocktails. In fact, the real travellers have wider perspective of travelling besides the luxury.

How travelling provide more opportunities

Travelling can be fun and enjoyable. In fact, you can create the mood yourself to truly enjoy your retreat. People travel with various reasons, some of them travel for fun, some other travel for fitness, and the rest travel to relax. Regardless of what your purpose is, travelling open opportunities in life you may never have a chance in other places or circumstances.

opportunities form travelling

Travelling gives you opportunities to truly experience not only see or hear. That is when you will understand and know the real deal instead of merely theory you read on book or media. Travelling is about discovering then understanding. To discover and to understand, you need to experience first. Therefore, you get more and better opportunities through travelling.

You can experience how to sleep on a rocky bed, or isolated village. This will give you better understanding about the real life.

Travelling also provides you more opportunities to be healthy because it requires physical activities. You won’t reach your destination if you don’t move. Yes, you can hit the gym anytime to maintain your fitness. However, it is different to truly exercise under fresh breeze and morning sunlight. Aside from physical health, your mental health will improve as well because you can get rid of any stress better through travelling.

Travelling also gives you opportunities to meet new people. Of course, not all people you encounter during your trip are good.

Some of them may have bad intentions to you. The point is, you will meet more new people and your social skills will improve as well. You have more chances to befriend people that clicks with your personalities. People are unique so you can learn something new from the people you meet. You will also be able to recognise bad people better so you know who to approach and who to avoid.

Travelling open more opportunities to challenge yourself. There are many interesting things you can try during your trip that you can use to challenge yourself. Trying new things is never been a bad thing.

In fact, it can help you to know how far you can push yourself. For example, you don’t have courage to go scuba diving when you are at home. However, you have the opportunity to try it during your trip because your mind tells you that it is the only possible occasion you can do it. Thus, you will be able to try and push yourself.

Important Bali Photography Services Your Business Will Need

Hey, everyone! Do you have a business in Bali and want to know the correlation between whatever business you are running now with the photography services?

Both are relevant and even the photography itself is taking the important roles in how images are helping your business in Bali. And it is not as simple as thinking that your business is need images to display what you are offering to your customers–either you are selling products or offering services.

For the first thing I would like to tell, no matter how professional the services you are providing for your customers or how good you have been created the products are that can help many people in the world, you still need them to be marketed in an aesthetic way. That’s why your business need the best photography results no matter how hard and expensive you are getting them.

Several Bali photography services your business will need

I have seen many businesses in Bali that need a lot of money to build are being displayed in a way that I am calling it as “inappropriate.” The business value is great and even need hundreds of million Rupiah to build it, but how in the world the business owners or can be the managers are not “respecting” the business itself by providing the worst images of what they are offering?

If you have found such businesses, no wonder if the employee will say that for the past recent months or even a year, the business is slowing down. Because many people may aren’ t tempting to buy from you because the services or products aren’t interesting at all.

I won’t getting in-depth analytical thinking about the other reasons why Bali photography services are needed. You may have found the reasons why. Therefore, here are some of the services you’d like to get from photography that can help your business skyrocketing.

Important Bali photography services your business will need

1. Bali photography services to shot the high quality images of products or services

The main photography services your business will need in Bali is about what actually you are selling? If you are providing the services or selling products, then find a photographer or a photo studio that can help you gaining the ideas about your business and turn all the interesting concepts into image formats.

Keep in mind that human is the visual creature. If there won’t be the visual representations about your business, then how can it be interesting? Even the printed newspaper today are keep on using images to make the stories valuable. That’s will also what you are going to do about your business.

2. Gather your team and put them all into frame as well

It is not a we-fie images. But taking professional photographs about the employee of your business will beneficial in using the images for your business assets. It can be the images will be used for your social media cover page, put them into your official site to introduce the team to your customers and any thing.

Your team can also be shot in one frame with the product to encourage your customers getting the product only from you. Put people into frame side by side with what your business is doing will also make the other people trust your business more than not doing that.

3. Hire professional photography service when your business held an event

Professional Bali photography service for your business is also needed when it is in an important event that held by your company. Mostly, this kind of images will be used for company ads to build the business brand, as the contents on social media about what’s happening right now or a moment ago, and also the recent updates for the business site so the visitors or readers are knowing what you have been done before.

There are at least the two special events you can think of about creating the professional images which are when your business is taking part in social volunteering to help the other people or when it is the best time for company social responsibility (CSR) moment.

Of course, the amount is much cheaper by using your own motorcycle. Even so, you will receive the first shortcomings when you intend to travel on a motorcycle. Especially if it’s not too hot and it’s also raining while traveling. For those who drive public vehicles will remain calm until the destination despite being exposed to the sun or rainstorms.

You are saved from traffic congestion and prone to crime

Apart from being cheap, using your own motorcycle makes it possible to get faster. Why is that? Because it avoids traffic jams. A small motorcycle posture allows it to pass through a narrow alley. Of course, this is very different from traveling using four-wheeled vehicles. Unfortunately, using a motorbike, especially on its own, can trigger crime. As we know, criminal acts from bullying to clashes occur a lot, even in big cities in Indonesia.

Saving time despite being vulnerable involved in a traffic accident

From various sources, it is known that the number of traffic accidents is increasing. On average, the number of accidents involves a motorcycle. Seeing this fact, the next disadvantage when carrying a motorcycle for traveling is that it is prone to traffic accidents. Although prone to being a victim of an accident, it turns out that using a motorcycle can save time. Not only money, but time can also be saved.

Put it in a small place with a stray risk

Having your own vacation destination by riding a motorbike is certainly very fun. Besides getting new experiences, this type of traveling can also add friends. Not only that, but traveling with this moving machine will also allow you to ‘go’ too small places. Therefore also, the shortcomings of the traveler who wears a motorcycle during the holidays are the possibility of striking a high enough. You can, wrong way because you don’t have a tour guide to a place.

Getting tired fast on travel but feeling satisfied when together with a partner

For hours riding a motorcycle will make some joints tired quickly. Because of that, the biggest drawback when you decide to travel using a motorcycle is getting tired quickly. Well, the way to overcome this is to drive alternately with friends. But, you also will not feel severe fatigue if you do a vacation with a loved one. Just call it when with a lover. How romantic it is along the way with your partner.

Well, that’s what he lacks and the advantages of using a motorcycle while on vacation. No one tried wrong to ride the vehicle. Comfort can only be felt by a traveler who will or has already done it.

Those are the advantages and disadvantages of traveling by riding a motorcycle.

Get real! Many of us are dreaming to make money while travelling, aren’t we? Ask yourself about it and you will gladly to know that your answer can be the same as mine.

We have known for so long since English is the main international language. So that, those who were born in US, UK, some states of Europe, Australia and many others with English as the main language can get advantage of this. They can surely will be easy to communicate about how to make money in their travel destinations and I have seen many about them doing well while making a good money.

How to make a good money with your english skill while travelling

But, for those who had never had such experiences, you may are confusing how to do it. Mental block? It can be the cause as well. But mostly, you may have never know what the gift you have got from your own mother tongue especially for the english language.

Therefore, i’ll give you some ideas or inspirations how you english skill can bring you some more money so your travel financial can be covered and changed in a quick time. Even, you can save more in your travel where many other people are considering it as to spending more money.

It is better if you have been building your own blog

It doesn’t have to make you as a travel blogger. But if you have been building a blog even though an online diary one with a good amount of daily traffics, you can confidently reserving the expensive hotel room, entering the tasteful restaurants or bars and the others while asking how to meet the managers and see if they want you to write about their business in your blog to gain more visibility.

It is really possible since a high blog traffic and years age of blog can be the good influencers for many people in the world. The money you are going to bet can simply by offering the managers or business owners about the post placement idea, ads space, etc.

Hey! Your Instagram’s followers are thousands? That’s crazy!

Mostly, nowadays, the term of influencers are so much related to the social media users. Be it the celebrity, bloggers, etc, you can offer the business owners to take advantages of your Instagram account with thousands or even millions of followers and post about the business where you are proposing the idea in return that you will get paid with money, free hotel reservation for days, or just anything that you think will be the advantage for yourself.

You can also make use of the other social media accounts for your business proposal and see if they want to pay it in a good price.

If you want to get a bit hard work about making money while travelling, you can combine the use of social media accounts and the blog you have built to ensure that the business you are targeting will considering you have got the valuable online asset that can help their business as well.

The both above ways will be easier for you with the good english skills. Even, beside the above 2 ways, there are also travellers I have been met and seen before were proposing to get a job in a company at country with less administration’s stress. What a life!

Sell your travel stories!

If you are visiting a country that doesn’t use English as the main language, then you can make sure that there will be many local people who are knowing about the language, but that will be not that many!

So, since you may have been building a blog, you may have been getting used to write articles. If not, you may want to try some and see if you can do it or not.

For that kind of country, you will have big chance to provide contents for the websites that are targeting the english spoken travellers and you can be part of it by selling your relevant travel stories or even work with the company or agency that will need you. Later on, I think working while travelling is not a big deal for many of us.

How to Travel Alone in Safe and Comfort

There will be the time when you want to experience the solo travelling. To be somewhere new without someone knowing about you sounds strange and weird but we needs it. We will need to be alone in a trip for various reasons but we will also needs it as the safe and comfort one.

Travelling is not only about the destinations, attractions, experiences, new people you have never met before, and else, but it is also how safety you are during all that excitements and getting back home while surprising the whole family with happiness, stories and may some of the exotic souvenirs you have bought before.

Most of the time, you may have decided for not depending on the others when you are planning about to travel the world alone, right?

How you can travel alone but still safe and comfort

As I have been many times travelling alone for days and even weeks, I may have some important insights you need to know even though I wasn’t arounding the world before.

And as for your information, travelling alone doesn’t have to be experiencing the loneliness. Being a solo traveller should never meant to be lonely along the way. There are ways how you can deal with it.

But since I will informing you how to travel alone in safe and comfort, I think I will try to give you the explanation how not to be lonely in a solo travelling in the other days. Today, let me just simply show you how to experience a travel by yourself is also an interesting thing you have to do.

How to travel alone in safe and comfort to enjoy the life

1. Do intense research and get a lot of information about the destinations you will visit

Information is always the important thing for any travellers. Even though you have been visited a destination a couple of time, you will still need to digging more about the things you may have missed before.

Acknowledge yourself about the destination is vital to preventing the things that can harm yourself or can make your journey less enjoyable.

Doing an intense research can also contribute in helping you to pack the necessary items you have to bring and what’s not, how much money you will need to spend, to know the emergency numbers you might need, and more.

2. If you will visit a quiet destination, how you will keep yourself safe and comfort?

There are many travellers decided to visit the quiet destination in purpose to experience the silence. You may will also do the same thing where heading to the hill or forest is your priority for a peaceful retreat. But keep in mind that you can be the only person over there. So, getting to know about how to survive at the will is also important.

This is also why doing an intense research about the destination is vital where you are going in a solo travel to experience many things, not to put yourself in a threat you may get.

Dealing with survival stuff means you need to bring a survival gears. You will also need to plan about where you are going to sleep in safe and comfort since you can’t hold your eyes for a day and a night long. Many are suggested to bring the custom hammocks since that will be a good item to make your sleep more safer and comfortable in the same time.

You will need also some things just like a knife and other first aid kit tools to anticipate things.

3. The route; You have to remember which paths you have taken before!

It is about escaping from something you need to away with. I’d never hope that your solo travelling will be in danger, but we never know what what are coming to us at the destination on above 2nd point.

Therefore, you may will need to runaway but you have to keep in mind that you are really mastery the field or area. Running away as if your bottom getting burned is not something you have to deal with. So, while you have to know more about the destination, bringing compass can also be useful or a printed map that can help you locate yourself in the wild.

So does about the roads and route you have taken before, even though there won’t be any threats you have to face, it is better to remember all the previous paths to make you easier to go home.

4. Make sure you know where the first point your internet provider is not available and so does your mobile’s signal

You may have never heard this tip before, but let me tell you why it is important. Your main tool for communication can be your mobile phone. If you will need a help, how you can reach everyone else including the emergency numbers you have saved before?

So that, your last point where the internet signal is down can be your last destination and no need to walk any further. See if you can enjoy yourself over the coordinate, it may has the great view for your travel alone idea and self-retreat.

You can also at least will know about where the point will be possible to connect to the others through your phone especially when you have remembered the paths you have taken as I am recommended before.

Start enjoying your getaway as much as possible!

There are other ways than the above 4 ways to travel alone in safe and comfort way. But if the ways have been prepared very well, I think you are good to go to the chosen destination and start enjoying your lonely retreat as much as possible. What else to be worried for?

Starting Solo Travel in Asia: Which Country to Pick?

Which country you should go to? This is especially important especially when safety is your top consideration when solo traveling. Here are some of our top picks to serve as references to get an idea which country is the safest when it comes to solo traveling.

Country for solo travel in Asia

Taiwan

Taiwan has a low crime rate among developing nations. The crime rate is notably low in Taiwan.

Just like in Japan, you don’t have to worry about signs. They have everything with an English translation. It’s also easy to navigate your way around. A lot of restaurants have pictures of the food. It won’t be a hassle figuring things out here.

Public transportation is also very reliable. You don’t have to dig into your pocket to get a taxi. And for much of the time, you don’t have to worry about transportation. While I’d recommend Japan to anyone on their very first solo trip to Asia, Taiwan is a solid choice in itself.

Singapore

Arguably the most advanced developing country in Southeast Asia, Singapore is definitely one of the places you should visit when you’re traveling to the region. Singapore is home to an array of culture from Chinese, Malay, to Indian. As such, you’ll be spoilt for choice for these types of cuisines.

Japan

Japan is definitely one of the countries that always make it into the top list of the safest countries in the world. A country with one of the most comprehensive (albeit sometimes confusing) public transpiration in the world, it’s extremely easy to get around. It is by far, the most wonderful country to do solo traveling in, especially if you enjoy Japanese culture.

From fashion and the dizzying buzz of people in Tokyo—down to the many little Shinto temples in the peaceful countryside—Japan has it all. It certainly can be very isolating to go solo in Japan. So plan a meeting ahead in advance through travelers’ website such as Couchsurfing or join relevant facebook groups. It’s also helpful sometimes to stay at a hostel if you want more chance to talk to fellow travelers during your solo journey.

South Korea

South Korea is one of the places in Asia where media-influenced tourism is at its peaks. And it seemed that it will continue to be. But regardless of your reasons to visit South Korea, it is one of the best places to be when safety is of utmost importance.

Both the metropolis and the suburbs of South Korea are all easy to enjoy by travelers. Public transportation is generally available even to the more remote places. The people generally mind their own businesses, so standing out from being a Caucasian is generally not a problem here. Overall, the crime rate in South Korea is very low. You’ll be at ease in this country knowing that most people solo traveling have had great experiences in this country.

Bhutan

Largely unheard of, the Kingdom of Bhutan was an isolated nation not very long ago. Before the monarchs seek to become a member of the United Nation, next to no one know of its existence. Bhutan is an isolated country in almost every sense of the word. So why does this option a good one? The crime rate in Bhutan is very low compared to most developing countries. And to enter this country in the first place, you have to be accompanied by a licensed local tour guide throughout your trip. And people have been saying nothing but wonderful things about these local guides. If you have the budget and the grit to go solo to Bhutan, then go for it!

Stay In 8 Bedroom Villa Bali

One of the best way for family or a group of traveler to stay in Bali is by renting the 8 bedroom villa at Seminyak.If that will be too many bedrooms, then you can try to get the 4, 5, 6, or 7 rooms and if that is too little, then you can get more up to 9,11, 13 and even more bedroom villa in Bali.

The distance from the main city of Denpasar to Seminyak is around 7 to 8 km that can be easily to be reached using taxi for about half an hour and will be faster than that when you are using the motor bike. But since you are in a group, the more people are with you, the bigger or more vehicles will be needed.

Sadly, it can be said that you can’t really find the public transport in Bali for now. So if you will be heading to Seminyak, you may rent your own car or getting taxi.

But, if that will be your visit and you have been reserved the 8 bedroom villa Bali before, you will be picked up by the villas guys if you have let them knew about your arrival before.

Anyway, if you have not been in Bali before, Seminyak itself is the village in Bali. But if you are looking and exploring closer, you will be known that it is the seaside tourist city in Bali where its location is close enough to the beach. If you are in luck, you may will get the beachfront or the ocean view 8 bedroom villa in Bali.

Stay in 8 bedroom villa Bali

There are some of the popular and luxury 8 bedroom villa you can rent in Bali. One of the place you could go is that the Hu’u Villas Bali where even though its location doesn’t makes it as the beachfront villa, but it will only takes about 3 minutes to the shoreline and beach by walking.

Pretty much closer and will really one of the best spot to enjoy the tropical nuances of the island.

There are also the other alternatives such as the Cantik Bali Villas, BaliVilla8, LakshmiVillas and many more options. Simply visit them one by one and see how many advantages that come along with the prices you are going to pay. It is better to directly see their offers through their own official sites even though you could also just visit the TripAdvisor, Booking and other reservation sites.

But if you are looking for the discounts and special offers, mostly all that villa managements will be published them all in the sites.

Reservation sites can still be used to overview each 8 bedroom villa Bali and in comparing the prices, etc.

Staying at the villa Bali with some amount of the bedroom numbers should also be considered about its outdoor and pool area. I think, I have got any single issue related to the indoor and all the stuffs, furnitures, amenities inside. But, I think that we should also considered that the exterior facilities are important, especially not only for your comfort but also your security as well.

The better the exterior in supporting your holiday in Bali, then that can be means that you are also having more fun and beautiful experiences of your stay. So with the otherwise. But it all will be your decision which are things that are important as your group accommodation in Bali.

Staying in a 8 bedroom villa Bali will be great if you are in a group of families or friends. There will be more people that you know in your trip and paying the accommodation can also be cheaper since everyone will be contributing in it. You will then could stay in more affordable Seminyak luxury accommodation and focusing on the better experiences that can make you happier in your trip in Bali.

Surviving Safe Komodo Trip with School-Age Sized Kids

Komodo trip is no longer hidden gems amongst the most adventurous earth explorer. As this UNESCO’s protected site is enlisted on the New 7 Wonders of the World, Komodo National Park soon become Indonesia’s next Bali and now it attracts tourists of all ages. Today, lots of families are excited to take their children to see the raw and enchanting land of Komodo. With so much things to explore, Komodo will never be a bore in the eyes of young kids!

As much interesting as it seems, however, Komodo has never enlisted as true child-friendly destination, if not at all. Accommodation might have evolved, but the prehistoric Komodo dragons don’t. The rough terrains at surrounding islands stay the same (a relieve!) and that means a challenging adventure for both you and your kids.

Surviving Safe Komodo Trip with School-Age Sized Kids

source: Instagram/ saltinourhair/tagged Hello Flores

So before you go, here are few preparation to ensure a safe and equally exciting Komodo trip with your kiddos.

Sounding First

Do try sounding to your kids days or even weeks before departing. They might get overtly excited to finally be able to see the real, living “dragons” with their own eyes, but they need to exhibit certain behaviours while exploring the dragon’s lair. Do talk to them what they can and cannot do during a dragon hunting (e.g; touching the dragons, getting way too close, wandering off from parents’ watch, standing on the tip of the boat, etc). Let them know how fascinating the dragons are and how dangerous they are in the same time.

Most Komodo trip will likely involve multiple day sailing with liveaboard boats. If you are travelling with liveaboard, give your kids a picture of how living in liveaboard looks like and what they should not do in the boat.

Encourage Curiosity, Discourage Lone Exploration

Lone exploration might make kids feel like embarking on their little Indiana Jones expedition, especially in places as raw as Komodo. Jagged island with stone mountain, high rising palm lontar trees, and thick bushes, Komodo’s landscape is giving off thick Jurassic-like vibes that will make any kids lost in adventure. While it’s good to stimulate children’s curiosity, creativity, and overall mental abilities, it’s important to stress this strict rule to kids: never wander in Komodo Island without adults and always ask parents’ permission before doing anything. As a good predator as they are, Komodo’s camouflage skills is very impressive and they are known to ambush their prey from a perfectly hidden spot. 

Do Exercise with Your Kids; Stroller is Not Recommended

Komodo National Park is a rough terrain. The islands are naturally left wild—dusty, rocky, and wavy—with no paved paths. Strollers are practically useless, they can snap in a split of second in such terrain. Tell your kids that they’ll need to walk a long way and do a lot of hike during their trip in Komodo, and they can’t use the stroller given of the condition. Before going to Komodo, spare some time with your kids to do exercise together and train their muscles (and yours, too).

While it’s time for land exploration, prepare to go as light as possible; only carry the most essential needs and leave less necessary things in the boat. You gonna need your hands and shoulder to carry them along, eventually.
