Geocaching – a world of hidden treasure!

Geocaching – a world of hidden treasure

Sssshhh! There’s a whole world out there that you don’t know about! There’s buried treasure all around you. Geocaching is a global treasure hunt that is growing with popularity, now attracting over 5 million followers. It doesn’t cost any money, all you need is a sense of adventure and something to help you find GPS coordinates, whether this is a satnav or your smartphone.

The lowdown

A geocache is a hidden box. All you have to need to find it are the GPS coordinates. Inside a geocache is a logbook to sign in, and often lots of nice trinkets. You are welcome to take something out of the box, but you should replace it with something of equal or greater value. Many of the items in the geocaches are moved from one box to another. In this way, some items make it all the way round the world! Once you have found a geocache, log your visit at www.geocaching.com . That’s it!

Finding a geocache

Geocaches are everywhere. There are over 100 hidden within a 5 mile radius of where I live. Under bridges, in the park, along a cycle track, buried in the banks of a stream. They can be anywhere! You may need a good pair of boots when you are looking for some though! The geocaching website can help give you a few hints and tips if you’re stuck, and other geocachers are always keen to share their experiences. There is also a good app available for smartphone users. Don’r forget to share your story afterwards on www.greattravels.co.uk.

Placing a geocache

If you get really excited, you can place your own geocache out in the world. Just make sure it’s in a good weatherproof container and well hidden.

Trackable

One of the most exciting thing to find in a geocache is a trackable item. Trackable items have a code on them that you can enter on the geocaching website. The owner of the item may have a plan for it. In 2009 I found a small trackable toy squirrel whose plan was “to re-establish the red squirrel population in Britain”. I moved it from Hatfield Forest to another geocache in Norfolk. From there it has now travelled over 3,000 miles around the country. Can’t do that on Ryanair! I also discovered a trackable race car that was part of the “Round the World Cup”. It began its journey in Germany and ended up at the Indianapolis Race Track.

Who goes geocaching?

Geocaching is perfect for families, young children will delight in looking for the boxes wherever you visit. It’s a great way to get everyone out for a good walk too. For the more serious treasure hunter though, you can book yourself a Geotour! The world record for finding geocaches is 1,157 in 24 hours. You can even base a holiday around looking for geocaches. From The Antarctic to Zimbabwe, they are all around the world!

Top Tips and Ideas for Backpacking Across Australia

Australia is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, so its status as an attractive tourist destination is more than understandable.  People head Down Under in ever-increasing numbers year after year. Whether this is to head to a particular city or landmark, or take in a range of places, tourists simply cannot get enough of Australia.

Despite the vast size of the country, Australia is popular with backpackers. Due to the size of Australia, planning a trip across the country is necessary, prior to heading there. What are the main things you need to consider, and why?

What do You Want?

In a country with so much to see and do, if you don’t have at least an idea of the places you would most like to visit, you are going to find yourself in a constant state of flux. Once you know the places that you most want to see, you can start to work out whether it is feasible.

Look at booking hostels, car hire special offers, and even looking at where you might be able to get a short-term job for a week or two – farms and bars in remote towns are great for this sort of thing – in order to earn some extra finances for your trip.

Once you have organized all of that, you are ready to go.

While you will undoubtedly have your own ideas for backpacking around Australia, we have a few suggestions of our own that you might not have thought of. These aren’t unknown tourist gems, but they are likely to be less busy than other great places around the country.

Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park Australia

To get an idea of the scale of this area, get this: it is half the size of Switzerland.

In the Northern Territory a few hours’ drive from Darwin, this is Australia’s biggest National Park, and a must if you are in the area. The number of people who pass this by leaving Darwin to head right for Uluru is staggering; ensure you don’t miss out.

If you managed to hire a cheap campervan or have a high-quality tent, look to spend a few days exploring this amazing place.

Margaret River

Many places within reach of Perth have a great reputation with travellers. Broome, to the north, is usually the pick of most travellers, but for us Margaret River has a certain essence and charm about it that makes it irresistible.

The whole surrounding region is filled with vineyards, while the town itself is filled with great places to stay, shops, parks, and anything you could ask for, to fit any mood or feeling at a given time.

Blue Mountains

blue mountains australia

Sydney is Australia’s most popular city, and people who travel there often wonder what the huge mountains visible in the distance are. The foothills of the Blue Mountains actually start at the edge of Sydney, yet many people travel right through the city without ever going there.

If you’re in Sydney, it is simple; you have to hire an Aboriginal guide to show you around the Blue Mountains, and introduce you to the unique landscape and history connected to the whole range.

Ensure you make the most of your backpacking trip Down Under. Whether you take in most of Australia or just a small part of it, there are lifetime memories waiting at every turn.

For a different kind of winter vacation try Belize

Belize on the Yucatan Peninsula is a country of contrasts. From the Central American rainforests to the barrier reef in the Caribbean you will find many different experiences. There are beautiful places and fascinating historical sites to explore both inland and around the many beaches and islands.

belize holidays

When to go
The climate of Belize is hot and humid all year round, varying by only about 4 degrees throughout the year, but the rainfall varies markedly from North to South. The wet season is considered to be from the middle of May to November in the south and from June to November in the north. The period between November and February is transitional and the dry season runs from February to April. The peak periods are between mid December and mid January and the Easter period. Many visitors to Belize like to visit in May or June when prices are slightly lower and the country is less crowded.

About Belize
Belize was formerly known as British Honduras and the official language is still English, although Spanish is also widely spoken. The country has more than ten different cultures including Creole, East Indian, Maya and German Mennonites. Tourism has grown considerably in Belize, with cruise ship arrivals contributing to the increase in visitors.

The many attractions include the massive rainforests, Maya ruins some of which have not yet been excavated, the famous Belize barrier reef and various activities centred around the coastal areas where boat hire is available and travellers can enjoy world class SCUBA diving.

Things to do
Experience the history of the Maya civilisation by touring the sites left from the Classic period. Around 40 percent of Belize is under protection and there are many temples to visit, sites that have been restored and unexcavated ruins to explore. Many of the ruins have been overgrown by the jungles and are difficult to find.

The wildlife of Belize attracts many visitors. There are hundreds of species of birds, exotic animals and colourful fish to see. Bird watching is particularly popular and many species can be seen from the resorts close to the jungle and the nearby roads. A prized sighting is that of the keel billed toucan, Belize’s national bird. As you would expect in a region where there are dense rain forests on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other, the country is also home to many exotic tropical plants.

Belize has the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere and was once described by Jacques Cousteau as “one of the four must-dive locations on this blue planet”. There are some stunning scuba diving and snorkelling sites in Belize with something for novices and experts alike. Other water based activities include kayaking in and around the reef and islands, all kinds of fishing, sailing and boating. Boats were used by the ancient Maya people for transport between islands, upriver and along the coast and boat hire is still available to explore these areas. Whatever your individual interests, you will find plenty of interesting activities to fill your vacation in Belize.

Perusing the Peruvian Paradise

The humble neighbour to the west of Brazil is often underrated in discussions of vacations and exotic tourism. Peru, however, has some of the most fascinating archaeological and cultural treasures in all of South America. From the Amazon River, through the Inca Trail, all the way to Machu Picchu one can experience a variety of wildlife, ancient ruins, and mountainous scenery that truly captures humble tranquillity of Peru.

The Amazon

The most prestigious jungle in the world allows tourists a deep look inside at all its wonders with expert naturalists as their guides. The Peruvian Amazon contains only 5% of the Peruvian population making it a natural oasis that allows you to experience a part of the world hardly even touched by mankind.

The tours are not limited to the outer skirt of the jungle, but take you into the rivers that vein themselves deep into the jungle. Motorized canoes are an included part of many Peruvian Amazon tours which carry you to intimate riverside lodges as you observe even more of the Amazon wildlife throughout the boated tour. The wildlife in the Amazon consists of some of the rarest species in the world. This habitat, along with the hospitality and lodging throughout these amazing adventures, make for a once in a lifetime experience.

Inca Trail

This trek is an unreal blend of archaeological and mountainous wonder as you hike alongside some of the most glorious and beautiful landmarks in the world. The Inca Trail is actually comprised of three overlapping trails: the Mollepata, Classic, and One Day. Each trail offers its own flavour of majestic scenery and cultural experience.

The Mollepata is the longest out of the three and takes you through the landscapes of the high Andes Mountains. This hike is no easy task but is well worth the venture to see some of the Inca ruins and tunnels as well as majestic views of the local mountains.

The Classic trail is a lot less strenuous and offers a bit more in cultural site seeing. Along this trek you can see the ancient ruins of Patallacta, a site used for religious and ceremonial functions and at one time for the housing of soldiers from Willkaraquay, a nearby hill-top site that was one of the first Inca settlements in this region of Peru around 500 B.C. The historical and cultural experience of this trail makes it a quite a moving experience for tourists, especially history enthusiasts.

The third and final trail is known as One Day. This trail is a two-day walk for the average tourist but is known as the “One Day” trail for the Incas who take great pride in their navigation through the Inca trail and would use its land as a place of rest and recovery. This trail allows you to explore the Intipata, a large set of agricultural terraces that follow the convex of the terrain. This is all right before you come upon the Winay Wayna (forever young) which features a peaceful harmonic flight of fountains used as ritual baths. The 19 springs utilized to make these fountains make it a rare piece of the natural world that is truly a site to see.

Machu Picchu

Machu Piccu
Machu Piccu

At the end of the Inca trail stands the great mountain sanctuary, Machu Picchu. Near the peak of the mountain is a city-like settlement that is believed by many archaeologists to have been the estate of the great Inca Emperor Pachacuti during the fifteenth century. Frequently referred to as the “City of Incas”, it is one of the most famous icons of the Inca civilization. Naturally polished dry-stone walls make up the city as it sits high in the heart of the Peruvian paradise surrounding it.

How Do You Know That School Trips Are Worthwhile?

Whether it is a day out of classroom to visit a local historical monument, an adventure break in the UK or a tour of another country, school trips have seen something of a resurgence in recent years. This article looks at the benefits they bring to students and what to look for in a trip.

How Do You Know That School Trips Are Worthwhile

Thinking back to our school days it is often the school trips that stick in our memories. The importance of such trips has been recognised and a whole industry has developed providing a range of experiences geared at school age children. Whilst there are undoubtedly benefits for such trips, however, they can be expensive so you will want to be sure they are worthwhile.

The Benefits

There are a number of reasons why educational trips are used as a teaching method. They can help reinforce concepts and ideas that have been taught in the classroom, bring to life or give practical experience of a subject and help children to retain information about the subject being taught. Creating an informal learning environment can be particularly valuable for some children, particularly those who struggle to learn from more traditional methods.

Whilst educational trips are primarily used to educate, there are a number of less obvious outcomes. Children get to go somewhere they haven’t been before and this increases their independence and engages them. The experience also gives them greater social skills as they learn to travel in a group and respect the environment they are taken to. Practical experience can lead to an increased interest in the subject matter of the trip and greater engagement with study going forward and, of course, they have fun!

Making It Worthwhile

A school trip, however, will only give these benefits if it is appropriate, well planned and orchestrated. It should support the learning your child is experiencing in school and the purpose of the trip and its objectives should be clearly stated. The destination should have been thoroughly researched by the school and they should give you clear information about how safety will be managed.

The school itself should demonstrate they are managing the risks associated with the trip in a sensible manner. This does not mean that they have pages and pages of risk assessments but that they have put sensible precautions in place to reduce risk, such as by having appropriate staff to pupil ratios and that the staff attending the trip are clear about their roles and responsibilities.

For trips that include staying away from home you should be provided with full information about the trip including details of the accommodation, the care provided during the night, what kit your child needs, how much spending money is appropriate and whether your child will be able to contact you.

Well organised and appropriate school trips can be of great educational importance to children and young adults. As well as helping to reinforce learning and engage and enthuse students they can also increase independence and confidence and, of course, give lots of enjoyment and memories.

Different Categories of Travellers – Budget travellers, Health conscious travellers

Travelling is the highlight for the year for many people. Planning a trip can be fun as well as can be something many people work towards all year long. Some people can just pack their bags and get on a plane and go, whereas others may need to save money and budget all year for their trips. There are different categories of travellers, such as:

There are different categories of travellers

Budget travellers

Some people have to save and budget for trips. These people put a certain amount of money in an account each week to fund their trips. They prepare lists for the things they will need to take and things they need to do before the trip. The things they need to do can be like reserving a rental car, booking a motel, making reservations on planes or buses, and looking for activities to do while on the trip.

Rich travellers

People that do not have to worry about money, can just call the airlines, make a reservation, and reserve a rental car or limousine to drive them to their destinations. These people usually pack their bags and take off for the trip.

Not-so-rich travellers

Some people cannot afford to take extravagant trips, so they plan for trips in their area. They may drive to a different state that is close to where they live. They may take a trip to places like the mountains or the coast. Reserving a motel can mean driving up to the motel and booking a room. These people have to save money for gas and food because their budget is so tight. They will need to watch their accounts and fun activities may be a limit for them.

The different categories of travellers can mean the rich or the middle class. The way each goes about planning their trips may vary due to their finances. Preparing a checklist may involve things such as food and shelter.

Health conscious travellers

Some people who travel abroad will get specific shots to protect them from diseases such as flu. This will help them avoid hospital stays and protect them from spending money on medical care. When planning a trip abroad, make sure to see all landscapes and important locations as well as visiting museums and specialty shops. Spending time in these activities may keep your budget intact.

When visiting the UK, make sure to visit places such as the castles, the London Eye, the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. These sights can provide you a glimpse of the history of the British Nation. There are day trips and weekend trips that travel agents can plan for you to make the most of any budget.

You can carry your credit card with you during travelling. In case you do not have one, you can make an application to your bank to issue you the same. You can also get a PPI Policy along with it. The bank authorities can explain you the guidelines and conditions for such policies as well as the situations under which you can file a PPI Claim and the period for which you are eligible for making PPI Claims.
