The Grand Canyon offers amazing, overwhelming, awe-inspiring and majestic views. You may find it intimidating to visit the Grand Canyon during your first trip. You will not find much information out there if you are a first timer. Given below are a few tips to help you with this.

Where should you stay?

In case you do not know, the Grand Canyon is more than an hour of drive towards the north of Flagstaff. Although you have a lot of places to stay over there, you should be ready for a lot of fun.

If you want to stay somewhere other than the Grand Canyon, know that you can stay in the lodging available over there. Aside from this, there are a lot of lodges in Tuayan, AZ.

Visitors Center

You may want to get started at the Visitors Center. You should have a word with a Park Ranger who will help you with creating a plan. They are the people who can give you the best advice.

So, do not forget to talk to a good Park Ranger if you want to make it easier for you to visit the place.

Go for the Shuttle Busses

You can get a shuttle bus to go to different parts of the South Rim. In fact, most areas can only be accessed if you get on a shuttle bus. The drivers have a lot of knowledge and they can give you the information you need.

Take water bottles and other stuff

You may want to bring your own snacks, lunches and water bottles. Aside from this, there are some cafeteria-type restaurants, snack shacks and cafés in the park where you can buy your desired drinks or foods.

However, you may find it better to sit somewhere along the rim and enjoy your own picnic lunch. This can be tons of fun and most people do it. You can not enjoy that type of views every day. You can refill your water bottles at many filling stations on the way.

Park Ranger Programs

You may also want to benefit from the park Ranger Programs. In fact, you will have a lot of amazing talks as well as programs on your visit. This may include nature walks, hikes, campfire programs, story time and a much more. All in all, if you consider the Park Ranger Programs, you'll find it a lot easier to get the information you need and have a lot of fun.

To cut a long story short, even if you choose to stay at the Grand Canyon for a day or two, you will have a great time. The credit goes to the Park Rangers out there who will give you a helping hand so you can put together a solid plan for your trip. So, do not wait for your kid to get older if you want to experience the amazingly spectacular view of the Grand Canyon. All you have to do is set a budget and have some friends or family members with you. That's all.

Sri Lanka is a perfect place to travel with kids. There's so much to see and do for kids that one needs at least a month to enjoy it. With 8 days in hand, we marked the places on the map of Sri Lanka that can be visited with a kid in tow and off we went.

Here's our ultimate 8 Days best of Sri Lanka itinerary for you!

Colombo – Kandy / Sigiriya / Dambulla – Nuwara Eliya / Horton Plains / Udawalawe National Park – Galle (en route Mirissa) – Negombo (en route Bentota)

Day 1: Delhi to Colombo (Sri Lankan Airlines) / Colombo to Kandy (Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage en route) / Explore Kandy / Overnight at Kandy

We decided to skip Colombo and head straight to the Sacred city of Kandy. Squeezing in Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage on our way to Kandy served as a much-needed break from the journey. Mini-me could not hold her excitement. It's cute how kids do not get bored doing or seeing the same thing again and again but they enjoy it analogously every time. Enjoying the predictability is unique to children I guess. Having seen elephants in the untamed and wild in National Parks in India, I and hubby were not really interested in Pinnawala. However, we were definitely interested in cherishing the happiness and excitement of our daughter while feeding a baby elephant. Pinnawala is a lovely nature preserve where kids can have fun while spending time with one of the most giant and intelligent yet humble creatures.

Kandy looked beautiful and serene, drenched in rain. Our driver stopped the car for us to admire the bird's eye view of Kandy from Arthur's seat (Kandy viewpoint) before dropping us at the hotel. We spent some wonderful time breathing in the mesmerizing views from our room balcony while sipping tea (one of my favorite part of travel) while mini-me clicked hundreds of pictures airily (One of her favorite favorite part of travel.)

Our evening was adorned with a stupendous performance at Kandy Sri Lankan Cultural Show. It's full of life and color extravaganza. Performers with their energetic performances, vivid apparels, compelling folklore tales, perpetual twirling, whirling, and open-air grand finale act make you skip a blink. The kids and adults equally enjoy this graceful spectacle.

We ended our day with a visit to the Tooth Relic Temple. Evening ceremony at the temple is truly worth witnessing. Although we could not see the Buddha's sacred tooth relic as it's housed in a decorative gold structure but the all-embracing experience was beautiful. Walking on the streets of Kandy was the highlight of our first day in Sri Lanka. Despite all the hustle and bustle, Kandy has done my attention because of its tasteful classic Kandyan and colonial style buildings. Busy and vivid markets are worth a stroll. Mini-me was in love with tuk-tuks that it became our preferred mode of transportation in Sri Lanka.

Day 2: Kandy to Sigiriya / Dambulla / Overnight at Kandy

If you want to do Dambulla and Sigiriya in a day, you got to wake up pretty early. We started for Dambulla at 5 in the morning. But you would not regret getting up crazy early once you visited visited Dambulla cave temple and Sigiriya Lion Rock. The hike is not as difficult as we thought it would be. A visual treat awaits as one reaches the summit. Eyes get confused whether to admire the ruins or to take pleasure in the stunning surrounding views.

Day 3: Kandy to Nuwara Eliya / Overnight at Nuwara Eliya

Enough has been written about the scenic train journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya and I'd love to travel by train but somehow I prefer road trips because they give a freedom to pause wherever and whenever you want to; touch and relish the amazing vistas; click pictures as and when you wish and give a chance to connect and know the local side. It's just a matter of preferences.

The road journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya turned out to be one of the most dramatic road trips I've ever experienced. With every turn, magic unfolds. I inhaled the fresh air and savored the bewitching vistas of the magical hill country winding alongside rolling hills blanketed by vividly colored flowers mocking the assorted color pallet and lush tea plantations, numerous waterfalls, and streams. Drinking in the pretty countryside makes you thirsty, craving for more.

We had lunch at a restaurant in Ramboda Falls Hotel. It was really a lunch with a view. Eating authentic Sri Lankan cuisine while chugging in the beautiful views of Ramboda falls that have shadowy mountains in the background surrounded by luxurious tea gardens. Is not it inviting? Absolute soulful and tummyful experience.

There are many tea factories on the way to Nuwara Eliya and in Nuwara Eliya. You can visit any one of them to see the entire tea production process from plucking to withering to drying. The tour of the tea factory lead by a graceful girl staff is a learning experience for kids. Mini-me was surprised to know that six to seven types of tea like green tea, black tea, white tea and many more can be obtained from the same tea plant just by changing the combination of different leaves of the same plant. At the end of the tour, they make you taste all the varieties of tea so you can buy the one you liked the most. My experience says that the price of tea at the factory is relatively higher than it's at outside shops. So, just experience the tea making process and buy it from outside.

It was amazing to take an evening stroll on the streets of Nuwara Eliya. Meandering through Victoria Park, Golf club and walk away surrounding Gregory lake; it was time for dinner. Araliya Green City food court was a perfect choice to dine while listening to the live band.

Day 4: Nuwara Eliya to Horton Plains / Overnight at Nuwara Eliya

Exactly at 5 am, we started 1-hour journey to Horton Plains. It's better to reach before 6 in the morning and start the hike as soon as it opens because it gets pretty crowded especially on weekends and also gets misty and hazy mostly after 10. It takes around 3-4 hours to World's End and back and is quite an easy hike. We stand on the cliff staring down the valley in sheer amazement upon reaching the World's End. Deep ravine showcases little villas with beautiful tea plantation gardens and they say you can see the south coast on a clear day. That's rare, though. It was an awesome experience. If time permits, you can enjoy the longer hikes to Mt Kirigalpoththa and Mt Thotupola.

On our way back to Nuwara Eliya, our driver suggested visiting Moon Plains which is few km from Nuwara Eliya because we still had a half day to go. Although apprehensive, we asked him to take us to the Moon Plains. As soon as we reached Potato seed farm which is the start of the Moon Plains, our apprehensions melted away in the mist. The ride along the bending and turning paths became enchanting as the breathtaking terrains unfolded before us. View from the Second World's End was seductive. Yes! Mountains fading into the distance, forests covered in the dancing mist, absolute quietness vanquished by the sound of birds every now and then, and the views that give new definition to the beauty sum up Moon Plains. One can see the colossal mountains of Sri Lanka viz. Pidurutalaga (tallest), Single Tree Mountain, Kikiliyamana Mountain, Great Western Mountain, Konical Hill Mountain, Kirigalpoththa Mountain, Thotupola Mountain, Hakgala Mountain and Namunukula Mountain from the Bomuruella Plains. One word. Spellbinding.

Day 5: Nuwara Eliya to Udawalawe National Park / Overnight at Udawalwe Resort

We prefer getting up as early as possible when we travel. It's always easy and hassle-free to reach and get entry at major attractions which are otherwise crowed at peak hours. As always, following our strategy, we started for Udawalwe National Park at 4 in the morning and reached there at 8 am The best time to visit Udawalwe for safari is at dawn (gate opens at 6 am) when you can witness the mesmerizing sunrise too . We missed that, however, the park was relatively less crowded and mini-me revealed in the 4-hour safari with an experienced guide arranged by our resort at Udawalwe. We saw a herd of elephants with a cute few months old baby elephant, crocodiles, water buffalos, monitor lizards, spotted deer, monkeys, and different species of birds. Spotting the beautiful vibrant toucan was the highlight of safari. We ended our day with a beautiful sunset at Udawalwe which washed away my regret of missing the sunrise.

Day 6: Udawalawe to Galle (en route Mirrisa) / Overnight at Galle

Finally, it was a beach time, the main reason people visit Sri Lanka for. We were off to Galle with a much-recommended halt at the beach town, Mirissa. It took us a little more than 3 hours to reach Mirissa. Mirissa beach lived up to our expectations. A pretty and quiet beach with laid-back aura. My little girl was a bit disappointed as we could not 'do whale watching tour because of the bad weather. I was sad too because she was utterly excited just thinking about getting a glimpse of friendly dolphins in the ocean and I guess it's the best thing kids can enjoy in Sri Lanka. We promised to bring her back to Sri Lanka during whale watching season.

Day 7: Explore Galle / Overnight at Galle

Galle is a dreamy little Dutch colonial town. The dazzling mix of colors and architecture bedazzled us. We explored the beautiful town on foot but our eyes and feet never felt tired. The lovely white lighthouse, lively streets with vivid shades of flowers, bizarre shapes of windows and doors and old Dutch Galle Fort which is the major attraction in Galle make it a perfect place to be. I'd recommend keeping Galle as a base for the most part of Sri Lanka trip. We spend our evening at Unawatuna beach watching the sun set in the ocean leaving behind the perfect shades to color our moments at Galle.

Day 8: Galle to Bandaranaike Airport (en route Bentota / Negambo) / Midnight flight to Delhi

It was our last day and we wanted to make the most of it. Our flight was at midnight, so we had enough time in hand. The sole reason to indulge in the Madu Ganga River Safari in Balapitiya was to see the point where the river meets the ocean but the cruise came as a surprise with its multitude experiences. Stopping by at the old Kothduwa temple inside the river, making way through amazing Mangroves, tasting the authentic cinnamon tea at Cinnamon Island, enjoying fish therapy and witnessing the river ending into the ocean; Madu River has a lot to offer.

We visited Turtle Hatchery with sheer excursion but left early dejected. I had imagined turtles toddling off down the seashore and It seemed like a real visual treat to witness these cute creatures in their natural habitat. But as we walked into the hatchery, I sensed that it's not what we imagined. It was shuddering and dreadful to see dozens of turtles of different sizes and ages squashed into the little ponds with dirty smelly water. “When would you release these turtles into the ocean?” I asked. “Some after few days and some after few months, it depends.” guide answered. Mini-me denied holding the baby turtle in her hands. Harassing them just for the sake of a picture is not a right thing to do, a girl of her age could also understand. What's wrong with us then? The whole thing seemed like a money-making project rather than the conservation project. They literally torture tiny animals for their own interest. I would never ever recommend anyone to visit Turtle Hatcheries in Sri Lanka. Animals are better off in the wild like we are always happy in our homes. Let them be. Please.

We stopped by at different beaches (Hikkaduwa, Bentota, Mount Lavinia, and Negombo) during our journey from Galle to Bandaranaike International airport. There's nothing like too much of beach right! Negombo is a beautifully perfect place while you wait for your flight back home because of its proximity to the international airport (20 mins journey)

Before you leave, do not forget to indulge yourself in shopping pleasure because Sri Lanka has a lot to offer in terms of local and traditional handicrafts. I too bought back a piece of Sri Lanka in form of amazing keepsakes.

Sri Lanka, we'll be back soon to enjoy the places we missed!

Sri Lanka has all the elements that make it an A-okay destination for kids. Hope our 8 days itinerary helps you enjoy and explore Sri Lanka better with kids.

Are you tempted enough to add Sri Lanka to your bucket list? What would you change in our itinerary if you've already been to Sri Lanka?

Lloret De Mar, located in the region of Catalonia, Spain, is famous for its warm weather and sun all through the year. It is blessed with a Mediterranean climate which has warm summers and cool winter. It is the perfect summer party destination for young tourists who like to party all night and then head to beach the next morning to calm their minds. There is no dearth of sunshine in Lloret De Mar that makes it a perfect place to get tanned and sip your cocktail by the beach, just make sure you have plenty of sunscreen on because it can get really warm.

What temperature you may expect in Lloret De Mar

It really depends which time of the year you choose to go. The month of July and August are the hottest months with cold evenings, temperature being as low as 17 degrees Celsius. Mid-Autumn can see temperatures soaring as high as 33 degrees. The strong summer sun lies from June to September; which makes it a favorable holiday time for tourists. 27th July is the warmest day of the year.

With all its beaches in Costa Brava, LLoret De Mar is at the center. It receives about 13 hours of sunshine in summer which allows tourists to enjoy the beaches more than the cool winter months. Winter sees an average of 7 hours of daylight. The cold water makes it difficult to swim and spend time at the beach, definitely not the right time to visit if you're going just for sunshine and warmth. The best time to visit Lloret De Mar is from June to August. However, from September, the sun is not as harsh; expect rain but still a decent time for tourists.

Things to do in Lloret De Mar during a summer holiday

• Summer time is all about beaches. PPlatja deLloret, its main beach, is about half a kilometer long with sandy blue coarse sand. Enjoy the water-sports such as jet-ski, kayaking, parasailing and water skiing during your summer holiday.

• Since summer is the best time to visit, the weather allows you to hike beautiful mountains and enjoy the beauty of wild flowers at the coastal cliff.

Lloret De Mar is rich in history. Its natural heritage, picturesque sunset points, walking trails and cultural events can be enjoyed to the full if you visit from mid-June to September.

Today Is the Last Day of My Life

Steve Jobs once said: “Live each day as if it was your last.” I remember reading this quote for the very first time. Even though it felt very inspiring and powerful, I could never fully understand what he was really trying to say. Today I am in a state of mind where I see what…

Steve Jobs once said: “Live each day as if it was your last.”

I remember reading this quote for the very first time. Even though it felt very inspiring and powerful, I could never fully understand what he was really trying to say.

Today I am in a state of mind where I see what “the last day of life” means. Every day is the last day of your life. How?

We are all able to know if we are going to be alive next minute or even next second. A lot of people answer asking, “Does it mean we will die next instant?” Egypt “Does it mean we must fear death all the time?”

The answer is simple: we do not know if we will die next moment but there is no guarantee if we will live. It certainly does not mean we have the only future, which is full of fear. There is absolutely nothing to fear.

Life was given to you without you making a choice to enter this World; it can be also taken without your choice. The only decision you make is how to live between the entry gate called birth and the exit gate called death. But there is an interesting catch: nobody knows how much time there is between the entry and the exit. This unknown causes life and all the fun and fear we experience living it.

Let's pretend for a second that we are aware of how many years or days we are going to live. The matter of fact, that's how we live every day.

To help you understand what I mean, l will use my conversation with my friend Tim as an ultimate example of life.

Tim is 32 years old and he works as a Project Manager in San Francisco based software company. Tim is married and has a beautiful, sweet and very loving daughter Alya. I asked Tim a few questions. Here is a part of my conversation with him:

Me: Tim, do you know how long are you going to live?

Tim: No, I do not. No one knows.

Me: What if you knew the exact duration of your life? Have you ever thought about that?

Tim: No, I've never thought about that. But it would be very interesting to know.

Me: When was the last time you were unhappy with your wife about something? If you tell me, I'm able to tell you how long you will live.

Tim: There is no way you can tell me that, but I will answer your question. Last week when I shared with my wife my plans to quit my job and start working on my product idea, we had a long argument. She thinks I do not care about my family's financial stability. I only want to make myself happy even if my family will be in trouble with my decision.

Me: What happens to you if you do not quit and what happens if you do quit?

Tim: If I do not quit, I think I am wasting my life doing something small and insignificant. If I quit … (Tim, went silent for a few minutes)

Me: What happened, Tim?

Tim: I am thinking what would happen if I quit.

Me: You have just told me you had a long argument on this topic with your wife last week? You have never thought what would happen if you quit?

Tim: Hmm, I think I have never really thought about it. I was always focused on what happens if I do not quit. But I can tell you that I am not very happy now. If I work on my idea and my product, I can make my life much better than what it is today. I can be happy again.

Me: (I smoked) Tim, I can now tell you, how long you are going to live.

Tim: Ha-ha! Tell me.

Me: Tim, today is your last day. That is all you are going to live. What will you do now? Will you quit?

Tim: If today were in fact the last day of my life, quitting or not quitting would not be what I would think about. I'd like to be with my wife and my daughter. I would care for them as much as I could and tell them how much I loved them.

Me: The choice you are making is not to quit and stay with your current job. The choice you are making is what you want to do with this moment of your life: live it with love or live it with fear. Most of us choose to live with fear. Look at what you were saying 5 minutes ago: you wanted to be happier in the future. You had an argument with your wife, because you feared you would not be happy if you quit your job.

Let's focus on the same moment of today being the last day of your life. Now all you want is give more love to your wife and daughter. You are not fearful of the future anymore. It is so because the reality of the future stopped for existing for you. You decided to live this only moment you have now with love and complete happiness.

In fact we all have the same challenge and we all have the same choice to make every day. Look through the decisions you have recently made. If you filter them through the thought of today being the last day of your life, see how those decisions change. If everything lasts the same, you can congratulate yourself because you chose love and happiness. If something changes, find out that that fearful thought was that affected you in the first place. Try not to let that fear make all the decisions for you.

Remember: “Life is a movie: you watch, you act and you direct.”

7 Tips To Keep In Mind For First Time Travelers In India

If you are thinking of traveling to India, be ready for a culture shock, as the country has several cultures and religions. The cities have a lot of traffic all the time. So, if you are looking for ways to get ready for your first trip to India, follow the tips given below.

Avoid burnout

The first problem that you may experience while in India is fatigue. You may get tired pretty quickly from trying too many things in too little time. Actually, it is a very big country, so you may want to have realistic expectations, as you can not see the entire India in a week. For this, having a great plan is a great idea.

Get out more

If you want to really know India, head to the small villages first. Next, you can leave for the mountains to refresh your mind. You will have a lot of fun by getting out of the city life and spending a few days in a simple village.

Follow the rules of diet

You may have an upset tummy while there in India, especially if this is your first time. However, that does not mean you should avoid street food. To be on the safe side, all you have to do is opt for fresh fruit and boiled or friend foods. Do not drink water from just any source. Use bottled water instead of ice or salads.

Personal space

In India, people do not care much about personal space rules. When on public transport, you may be squished, and when in a lift, you may be squashed. While walking down the road, people may often ask you intrusive questions. Keep in mind that you are in a country that has entirely different cultures.

Dress conservatively

As far as clothing is concerned, the federation features a modest culture. People keep their legs and arms covered up, especially women. Before you enter a house, be sure to take off your shoes, which will make a great impression on the residents. This is even more important before you enter a sacred space, such as temple.

Use your right hand

While over there, if possible, do not touch anything with your feet as Indian people consider the feet as unclean. In the same way, do not eat or pass things using your left hand. Just do what others do around you.

Stay safe

You may have heard that walking down a dark street in India is not a good idea. This is true and you can avoid possible dangers in many ways. If possible, do not keep a lot of cash on you so you can avoid becoming a victim of pickpockets, especially in busy markets.

So, if you are getting ready to go on a trip to India, we suggest that you follow the advice given in this article. These tips came from experienced travelers who have had a chance to visit this great country. Hopefully, with these tips in mind, you will be able to get the most out of your trip while staying safe and sound.
