During your visit to this beautiful country, you can opt for two options for your vacation stay – campervan rental via leading provider Siesta Campers and others or or hotel stays provided by a range of popular resots and tour operators.
Having visited Portugal a number of times, I have had the benefit of experiencing both options. And while there are several benefits to both options, I found renting a campervan to be the best of two experiences. So, if you are looking to visit Portugal anytime soon, below are some of the top reasons why you should ditch a hotel room for campervan rental.
- Huge trip cost savings
One of the best reason for exploring Portugal on a campervan is that it can offer you huge cost savings. Despite there being several cheap hotels in Portugal that can save you money during your trip, savings from campervan rental can be more significant. To start with, the total cost of staying in a …
The Thai parliament has approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and a member of parliament called it a “New Year’s gift” to the Thai people. However, unlike countries that have fully legalized marijuana, the use of Recreational Marijuana activities are still prohibited as reported by BBC.com (26/12).
In the past, marijuana has been used in Thailand as traditional medicine, but began to be banned in the 1930s. Countries in Southeast Asia have a number of rules that are burdensome for users, owners and the spread of drugs, and Thailand is the first country in the region to allow the use of Medical Marijuana.
The parliament, formed by the Thai military regime, provided support to change the Narcotics Law of 1979 on Tuesday. The legalization of marijuana for medical purposes was ratified after the Thai parliament added time to discuss it before the New Year holiday, Reuters reported.
The amendment to the Act will be passed and officially passed into law after it was listed in the government sheet, said The Bangkok Post. “This is a New Year’s gift from parliament to the government and the people of Thailand,” said Somchai Sawangkarn, the drafting committee’s head of the …
If you are like me, you love getting out in the wilderness. When it is time for recreational activities, I cannot stand to sit in the house watching TV or making casual small talk. Getting out in the wilderness is good for the body, and even better for the soul. The spirit of the wild is not just an idea, but a tangible presence that can be felt once you remove yourself from the grasp of modern civilization.
Nevertheless, you still need to plan appropriately for a wilderness outing. Like your ancient ancestors, you must carry everything you need on your back for as long as you are out there, so don’t neglect to put a lot of thought and effort into this process. You will need to concentrate on meeting the basic needs of survival, which are shelter, water, warmth (if necessary), and food, in that order.
Top Survival Priorities
Priority one needs to be the erection of an adequate shelter. If you are only staying for a single day, this is not a concern. Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a camping trip if you didn’t stay at least one night. A tent will usually be sufficient, …
Lately, a lot of adrenaline enthusiasts have tried extreme sports called canyoning. Even some places in Europe and America have provided facilities to accommodate these sports addicts, for example just like the canyoning Bovec in Slovenia.
So, What Exactly is Canyoning?
Broadly speaking, the canyoning is an outdoor activity based on tracing rivers, waterfalls, or canyons. Interestingly again, while exploring nature, you will be invited to do other challenging activities, such as scrambling, river-hiking, rappelling, and abseiling. The Canyoning Bovec is one of the best adventure options.
In some places, sometimes, the canyoning is combined with cliff jumping activities and swimming. Of course, all of these activities are carried out in the outdoors and must use safety devices, such as life jackets, helmets, and others security equipment.
This canyoning sport was first born in France. After that, this canyoning sport quickly spread to other countries in Europe and America. Especially in countries that still have forests with varied tracks. From rivers, hills, canyons, waterfalls, mountains, and more.
This canyoning itself was originally created not for sports, but for research in hydrology, meteorology, and others. It’s just that, given the number of people who started crazy with the adventure …
