Getting ready for a trip doesn’t have to be a long, involved process. A little creativity and planning can make packing relatively painless with everything you need right there when you need it. Start by eliminating what you know you will not need.

If you are going to Hawaii you can probably skip the parka. If you are heading to Alaska you can probably leave the suntan lotion at home.

• Bras – Take a few comfortable bras. Your main goal when traveling is comfort. In a pinch you can use your bikini top. Just remember to tuck the straps in at the neck and you are all set.

• Personal care items – This includes a hairbrush, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant or talcum powder, razor, eyeglasses, contacts and related supplies, dental floss, eye mask, hand sanitizer and anything else you use on a daily basis.

• Feminine hygiene products – If you are traveling within the United States, you are fine. You can get whatever you need wherever you travel. However, if you are traveling overseas, you should be prepared since products vary in style and design in other countries. Make a list of what you will need based on the number of days of your trip.

The wildebeest migration takes place between two countries in the African continent. An estimated 1.5 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle migrate from the Maasai Mara in Kenya to the vast plans of the Serengeti in Tanzania between the month of July and October in the search for rain ripened grass. The migration of wildebeest in Arica isn’t so much of a yearly event but more of a lift cycle as the herds move in a clockwise motion between the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti.

An Insight Into the World of International Glamping

In tough economic times, families are finding it difficult to afford expensive vacations at luxurious resorts. Some people prefer getting up close and personal with nature but hate the idea of roughing it on a camping trip. Leaky tents and sleeping bags are not very appealing and if bad weather strikes, the entire holiday can turn into a nightmare.

There is a new option gaining popularity known as glamorous camping. Glamping trips feature exposure to the great outdoors and offer luxurious amenities not found in any campground. A little bit of camping and a little bit of glamour, these resorts offer everything from private chefs, spa tents and microbreweries. From cashmere blankets to linen sheets, visitors can enjoy nature while being pampered.
