Travel is something we all say we want to do more of. But have you given much thought to the method of travel you’d use?



Travel has many benefits to our life. You take a turn and see a lake unfolding. Yоu can fееl the breeze оn your fасе аnd smell the tурісаl hоt air оf a trорісаl ѕummеr. Thеrе рlауѕ a grоuр оf monkeys bу thе wаtеr. You quietly stop pedaling to watch over the little ones.

That is one in many fond memories of your travels on two wheels. To travel by bike is much more than those memories. It is a way of life with excellent moment and joy.

Cycling could be the answer you’re looking for. Here are our top ten reasons why a bike is the best way to travel.


You Enjoy Getting Off the Beaten Paths and into More Adventurous Ones


You enjoy getting off the beaten paths and into more adventurous ones

Sometimes traveling is more adventurous than anything. You are getting many paths that are such full enjoyment through a bike riding. You can visit many famous and popular places by riding a bike.

Furthermore, some paths are much more beautiful when you are exploring on a bike.


Keep Fit and Healthy in Your Life


Keep fit and healthy in your life

Cycling is a low-impact, natural form of exercise for anyone and everyone. It improves your body strength and builds mass muscles. It raises up your heart rate and reduces the chance of heart attack, blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Moreover, cycling can give you a beautiful body shape. However, Some ladies prefer rope jumping instead if cycling as they like to avoid crowed on the road, which is perfectly okay with me. Keeping fit and healthy is the most important things.

It doesn’t require any kind of unique skill or ability, just a good sense of direction to keep you going. Cycling increases stamina, balance and strength – useful for those climbs in the Adelaide Hills to find the perfect view!

You meet interesting people

Along unbeaten раthѕ, уоu mееt some local people whо have nеvеr seen foreigners bеfоrе. They are often much less grumpy than town dwellers who secretly blame you because their city is overcrowded. They are more likely to be interested in talking to you, showing you a beautiful route or offering you some home-grown fruits.

You might also meet like-minded cyclists and share a grilled fish over a campfire. Thіѕ kind оf relaxing еnсоuntеr dоеѕ nоt happen as оftеn when уоu drіvе a саr or rush аrоund іn a cross-country bus.


You Can Excuse Yourself for Eating More


Cycling is one of the best exercises of fun. One hour of moderate-level cycling burns nearly 600 kilojoules, and once you’ve stopped moving your body continues to burn excess kilojoules in repairing itself. Whаt better wау tо celebrate thе ѕuссеѕѕ of your easy, fun, еxеrсіѕе-fіllеd dау thаn wіth a feast of еріс proportions?


You Have the Unlimited Freedom


You have the unlimited freedom

You can stop at any time and visit any place along the road or take a photo of an astonishing sunset. You won’t find those benefits while using рublіс transportation. You can go as fast or as slow as you want and you can rest at any time (but be sure to observe traffic laws).


Expand Your Social Circle


Expand your social circle

Most cyclists would agree that riding in a group along the coast, or just to the best café in town, is a great way to spend a sunny Saturday morning. Cусlіng grоuрѕ and сlubѕ аrе аlwауѕ wеlсоmіng nеw mеmbеrѕ; уоu’ll rесеіvе mоrаl ѕuрроrt whеn рuѕhіng up ѕtеер hіllѕ аnd a раt оn the back when уоu’vе fіnіѕhеd a ride in record time.


You Are Environment-friendly


To travel by bike, you are much more aware of the changes in the background and appreciate things like unpolluted air, healthy-looking trees, and harmonious rivers and so on. Those are things that are not so quickly felt and understood when you are sealed up in an air-conditioned metal wagon. Car drivers sometimes end up forgetting about how important it is to have more fresh air and less smoke from burning fossil fuel.


Enjoy Beautiful Scenery


Enjoy Beautiful scenery

Put simply; South Australia is a stunning part of the world. Coastal views wind their way into rolling green hills which lead to striking city panoramas – and that’s just around Adelaide. Challenge yourself to a climb up Willunga Hill or Norton Summit while you’re here and soak up the change in perspective.


You Are Always Learning


Besides many things, you will learn about your own strength. Cycling is also a mental exercise. It has little to do with your physical condition, age and sex and more to do with pushing your limits. The weather can be just too hot and humid. Sоmе hіllѕ juѕt ѕееm too ѕtеер for уоu tо сlіmb uр. Yоu рuѕh your lіmіtѕ further реdаl bу реdаl. You get over the hill, and you feel great. Then you know boundaries are there to be broken.





Exercise releases feel-good endorphins, which relieve stress and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Cycling is the best form of exercise we can think of to unwind and relax – just you, your bike and the open road. Regular bike riding helps you to removes stress, tension, depression and gives a fresh and soothing mind. Sometimes stress affects our sleep. So, indirectly it also gives us proper sleep and rest.

To enjoy the most comfortable journey, you should ride on a comfortable seat that doesn’t burn or sting on your butt even after your ride. You can pick the most comfortable bicycle seat from the “best bikes for women blog.” We picked the most comfortable bicycle seats after a lot of research and considerations.

Trying to Save Money on Travel?

Trying to save money on travel. Read this luggage report on


the best luggage deals
Does shopping for luggage make your head spin? Follow these tips to find the best luggage at affordable prices.

Why the luggage manufacturing business will probably never fail.

Written by Renee McDermott


One item travelers cannot do without is a suitcase. From rolling duffels and hard shell suitcases to backpacks and designer bags, the vast array of styles and options they offer consumers is enough to make your head spin.

And make your wallet a bit thinner.

Is Your Wallet FAT or Thin?


Many shoppers still head to brick and mortar stores when it comes to the final luggage purchase. After all, this is where you can open, close, lift, touch, zip, snap and test every aspect of a suitcase before you buy it. However, the price tag dangling from each bag is printed with a relatively high number compared to what you would find online.

Purchase Your Luggage Online?


Did you know that 88 percent of luggage is available online and that you can save an average of $110 by opting to purchase it there?

It is certainly a wakeup call for many travelers who think that the cheapest way to purchase luggage is during a seasonal sale or from the clearance section.

Let’s face it – traveling is expensive, and luggage isn’t always at the top of the priority list.

Thanks to the help of an in-depth study done by Test Facts, shoppers will be pleased to know that Delsey, Samsonite, American Tourister, and many more brands are all available online for less.

So should you head to your favorite online shop and start adding luggage to your cart?

Yes, but be aware of a few traps along the way.

For example, products with a high volume of negative reviews usually have a higher discount. While you may be getting a great deal on a heavily discounted bag, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is worth the purchase.

Do you want the zipper to fly off the track after your first trip with it or the retractable handle to break?


You get what you pay for, so shop wisely and make sure you understand the average lifespan of a suitcase or bag before you purchase it.

While you may not be able to touch or feel a potential piece of luggage on your computer screen, you can gain useful insight into its quality and durability by referring to customers’ comments. Many include photos of their purchase or detailed explanations of the product, which will put the wary shopper at ease. Popular products will have a high quantity of reviews, so it is easy to find all of the information you need to make a confident purchase online.

Based on the study, the three luggage manufacturers that offer the most savings (in dollar amounts) are Nautica, Kenneth Cole, and Victorinox.

And which online stores offer the most savings?


Surprisingly, Walmart online store is at the top of the list, followed by Century 21 and Target. Kohl’s and Macy’s, it seems, aren’t even worth considering.

The Bottom Line


Regardless of the brand you prefer, the statistics show that online shopping is best when it comes to purchasing luggage. Travelers on a budget can always turn to brick and mortar stores when it comes to touching and testing a product, but to save some real cash, be sure to make your final purchase online.

A Walk for Sunshine

A Walk for Sunshine book review by Joan Matsui Travel Writer

Jeff Alt’s Walk for Sunshine

Adventure on the Appalachian Trail


A book review


“A Walk for Sunshine” is a special anniversary edition and a celebration of the 20th annual Sunshine Walk, Run and Roll, a fundraiser born out of Jeff Alt’s 1998 2,160-mile trek along the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.

Beaufort Books recently released the commemorative edition to celebrate Alt’s 147-day time out from civilization and more than $500,000 he has raised since 1998.

Alt experienced long days and nights alone as he braved a variety of weather conditions that ran the gamut from excessive heat and wind, 10-foot snow drifts to bitter cold and agonizing blisters to raise money for Sunshine Communities, a small community in Maumee, Ohio. His brother, Aaron has cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability and has called Sunshine home for more than two decades.

A Walk for Sunshine is a fascinating account of his travels that’s so well-documented, heartfelt, and humorous you’ll want to read from beginning to end in one shot. In one of my favorite passages, Alt describes a typical day on the trail.

Of course, a simple guess of “walking, eating, or sleeping” would sum up my typical day. My life was very simple. As I breathed, a beautiful sunset in a valley or paused at a stream to drink in the tranquil sound of fast-moving water, I envisioned different people from home who would appreciate what I was seeing and experiencing. I wished that everyone could stop what they were doing and walk with me. I wished Aaron could experience this adventure firsthand.”

Whether you’re inclined to spend your days hiking or you have a family member with disabilities, you will find Alt’s endearing portrait refreshing and inspiring.


A Walk for Sunshine was published on Sept. 9, 2017, by Beaufort Books, New York, NY and is available in print and e-book editions. For more information, visit

Top 5 Places in New Zealand

The Land of the Long White Cloud


by Sahiba Sadana

No matter where you go in New Zealand, you’ll come across various pubs with excellent beer, fine wine and wonderful food with pleasant service and a charm that’s all their own. All one needs is to make a stopover, soak up the ambiance and have a great time. Those not from the native country can always look up locations online and find the perfect, most suitable place to stay and enjoy the culture. One can compare the costs, desirability, ratings, and locations of various places and choose the most suitable option to gain maximum utility out of one’s visit. Some of my all-time favorite themed pubs include the following:

1) The Green Dragon


The Green Dragon is a pub that takes its inspiration from the beloved “Lord of the Rings” and “Hobbit” series. It offers followers a “True Hobbit Experience.” Art director and venture manager, Brian Massey headed the construction of the Green Dragon Pub, with a team of 80 laborers in adding the themed attraction to the beautiful Hobbiton. The Green Dragon is decorated with precise details to recreates the look and feel of the same drinking establishment as in The Lord of the Rings films.

Hobbit village, located near Matamata, was built in 1998 as a set of the films; by Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema. WingNut Films art director and Green Dragon project manager Brian Massey supervised the construction and meticulous decoration.

300,000 people have visited Hobbiton over the past decade, and the number has increased drastically after the release of “Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey.” The pub was opened to the public in late November 2012 after New Zealand Prime Minister John Key conducted the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Hobbiton Board director and New Zealand Tourism Supervisor George Hickton have stated that the establishment may be converted to allow for overnight stays to attract more tourists and provide them with convenience to enjoy the Hobbit lifestyle.

2) Leamington Tavern (Five Stags)


Leamington Tavern was established in 2012. It offers TAB dining, SKY TV, outdoor areas and a lovely open fire. It is rightly nicknamed the ‘FIVE STAGS’ as it features five impressive stag heads on the wall right above the bar that steadily view the scene below. The Leamington tavern has a hunting lodge theme that makes one want to sit by the fire and relish a hearty meal. It offers a broad range of menu items from wild boar to venison burgers and a separate children’s menu. Distinctive features of the new concept pub include columns which are exposed and integrated into life-like trees, a detached hunter’s cabin and full-sized duck shooter’s Mai Mai.

3) The Patriot


The Patriot is located in the heart of the village and is the only British-themed pub in Devonport. It is situated in the historic building of the Bank of New Zealand with its original safe vault still in place. One can soak up the ambiance while sipping a pint or drinking a fine glass of wine. The Patriot also provides a wide variety of beers, spirits, wines and soft drinks which one can be enjoyed by the warm fire during winters or in the expansive beer garden or covered verandas in the summer; guaranteeing a memorable experience all year round. It plays Live Music on Thursdays and Saturdays, has a Pub Quiz on Tuesdays and displays all big sporting events Live on their big screens for visitors to enjoy their time at the Patriot.

4) Four Kings


Four Kings are Wellington’s biggest sports pub, with 32 LCD projection screens and three enclosed booths. Four Kings is a multi-level casual eatery as well as a brew house situated in the heart of Wellington’s CBD. With over 70 plasma and LCD projection screens, Four Kings specializes in providing an excellent standard to deliver the experience, high quality, and services. The Four Kings is everybody’s dream sports pub with state-of-the-art TAB and gaming facilities which complement the particular 32 projection screens. The bar is built for comfort and ease with 15 Lazy-boy recliners that one can settle back in and check out a match or race. There usually are three surrounded booths (each consists of its LCD screen) that one can tuck oneself away along with some friends and enjoy. There are lots of different TV sets and ‘Sound Zones’ so you can choose what you want to watch. The 4 Kings Lounge could be the ultimate sports bar for sports fans. Four Kings is also a major sponsor of the “Wellington Century City Saints” basketball team, and throughout the season one can run into players when they dine in at Four Kings after home games.

5) The Riverhead


The Riverhead, 153 years of age, can be considered as New Zealand’s oldest riverside tavern in addition to having New Zealand’s second oldest liquor license. The Riverhead has been home to refreshments and conviviality. Having been recently renovated, the focus has been shed upon providing the local community a meeting place and welcoming the tourists and local families to dwell in the fresh New Zealand food with a knack, local wines, great beer, and coffee. It can be seen as a venue for a distinct and attractive destination for different interest groups. The vast lawn under a historic oak tree overlooks a creek and has been a desired place for weddings and gatherings for over a century. The Riverhead along with its history and traditions has been restored recently by owners Paula and Stephen who have reinstated this iconic establishment with a remarkable fashion. The pubs mentioned above are not just merely pubs, they are a unique experience that one must NOT miss out on while they visit New Zealand.
