Gatorland Experience

May 27, 2008

My husband and I had a free time the whole day going to Gatorland, - an adventure park which is also called "The Alligator Capital of the World". This park is close to the hotel we were at in Orlando, FL.

This was one of a kind experience for us. If you love to visit adventure theme parks and nature conservatory, ad if you love gators and some species of protected habitat, this place is for you...bring your little ones, they would enjoy it! There are so many things to see inside the park. For kids, there's the petting zoo and the splash water park for them to enjoy the fun.
Petting Zoo

We tried the extreme encounters with the big gators with a photo opportunity. It was fun! Thank God!...those gators were too full to chase us, LOL!

Other adventure tours such as birding tours (close sight seeing of bird sanctuaries) can be done via train.

Do you want rookie wrestling with the gators as well? Go your own risk! There's a $10 fee for the experience, and another additional fee for photo opportunity.

Emerge Labs

Whenever I travel, my skin easily responds to weather temperature. Cold weather usually gives me dry scaly skin on the face (even lips), while sunburns strike leaving most of my skin so sore during summer, the reason why I always have to be sure I get a good skin care lotions or therapeutic skin products in my luggage.
I'm so glad I was able to find Emerge Labs Organic Skin Care, and so I'm now going organic! :). When it comes to my skin I'm really concern about it...well, I think every woman does, right? I've discovered Emerge Labs has the best ingredients containing natural, organic skin care formulas making it a high performance skin care. It is because of the fact that Emerge Labs serves to protect skin stem cells and fights chronological aging. And take note, it's a 100% fresh, organic skin care. Check it today, and try. You'll never regret you did.

Boating & Alcohol Don't Mix

I think the title of this blog post speaks for itself, don't you think? And it's 100% true! When it comes to driving (and boating) or anything that involves operating moving vehicles/machines, drinking alcohol is always a bad idea. That means Boating and Alcohol Don't Mix. Agree? It's like the same thing when you say - "Don't drink and drive."
It is a sad thing to analyze though that many still refuse to listen and follow the golden rule not until they have bad accidents from driving drunk! Oh my, oh why? do they have to learn their lesson the hard way!

So before planning to have some fun with friends, perhaps you should stop for a while and try to get some vital information about boating safety and the prohibit use of alcohol before boating.

It must be of great help that the Arizona Game and Fish Department has been doing something helpful about this such as strict implementation of OUI (Operating Under the Influence) checkpoints ans saturation patrols, providing boating education classes, etc. Aren't we glad that the Arizona's lakes and rivers are being protected to save lives?
Boating Education has been approved by National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) which includes general nautical information, various boat types, knot tying, anchoring, and many more. if you are interested to take the boating class, don't hesitate to call (623) 236-7325, or you can take the class online as well.

We can always have fun without alcohol, after all. If you can't stand having fun without it, forget about boating (and driving), stay home and drink all you can! LOL!

Hollywood Bowl

Since it was started on July 11, 1922 with only benches made of simple wood on the hillsides of Bolton Canyon, it has been continously known as a place of concerts and large perormances or world-renowned musicians and legendary performances.

But it is not only exclusive for music performances but also a place for school commencement exercises, a place for dining, etc.

Currently, it has a seating capacity of almost 18,000 but still continue to expand in the near future.

We signed up for the LA City Tours with Starline Tours. The tour package includes visits to the Hollywood Bowl, Beverly Hills, Farmer's Market, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and a quick visit to a place called "Mission Nuestra Senora Reina de Los Angeles" where small shops (mostly Mexican products) are located.

I thought of sharing my trip to each of the places mentioned on this post, so more of this trip will be added as separate posts.

Fun in Branson

There's so much real fun happening in Branson nowadays. DO you want to experience the First Annual "Great American Pie Show?" This will be held on April 24-25 at Branson Convention Center which is adjacent to the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and is just across the street from Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing.
As a traveller, you couldn't deny the fact that Branson, Missouri is well known for its appealing attractions worth visiting such as the scenic Lake Taneycomo, deep lush green golf courses, theme parks such as in Silver Dollar City, etc., - much more fun when I had a visit to St. Louis last 2007, those days where I only visited the zoo, botanical and butterfly gardens. I wanted to have more visits that time, but places are limited. How I wish I could have known Branson before that. I could have been definitely enjoying lots of fun!

If you want to win big prizes, start booking your stay at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and you can even join the Great American Pie Contest which will be sponsored by Branson and Taste of Home magazine. This national pie recipe contest also features Al Roker from the Today Show. Who knows? You could be the lucky winner of the first prize of $2,500 in cash with a trip for two for a 4-days/3-nights fun-filled vacation in Branson!

Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel is offering a special room rate until March 22, '09 and has reserved a block of rooms for April 20-29. So, plan a good vacation when going to Branson by booking your reservation the soonest.

Travel Hassles!

This will be our 4th time travelling out of the country going to the Philippines for a vacation. Unfortunately, purchasing domestic air tickets there is so much full of hassles while you're out of the country. I couldn't believe it...I tried booking our tickets for at least 3 hours to no success because my credit card was declined. The bank says it's because many credit cards are victims of fraud mostly airline purchases.

Anyway, when we did finally get our reservation confirmation, it took us more than 30 minutes on phone stand by to talk to a live person from the reservations department :(.

Well, it was good we did this earlier rather than doing it few days before our trip! Or else, I would be super stressed before I could board the plane!

Weather in Arizona

I grew up in a tropical country. So, weather wise, when it comes to heat, I can say I can pretty much withstand it. Just like Arizona, I can nearly compare its climate like the Philippines.

Perhaps, if you prefer or love the Arizona heat better than the freezing climate of Alaska, it might be good to think about getting a good vacation home or property rentals there. Did you know that Scottsdale Fine Properties can help you search investment properties as well? Many people find it more comfortable and convenient buying or renting properties in Arizona, the fact that you don't even have to worry about snow storm! LOL! If you plan to stay in Arizona for good, no problem,Arizona relocation services can help.

Living in Arizona is not as much worst as you think, speaking of climate. It's actually an ideal place to have good investments ;).

Hollywood's The Guinness World of Records Museum

This museum is located right on Hollywood Blvd., a block away on the east portion of Chinese Theater.

When we visited the place, it seems most are not that fond of going there, as nobody was there except me and my husband, and a couple. We have been to this museum many times during our previous several trips in other states, so it was kinda boring seeing the same thing over and over again. But since most of our visit is on the area, we had a quick glimpse inside.

By the way, there's a charge worth $12.95 for adults and $6.50 for children (6-12 yrs old). Don't waste your money if you think you have already been visiting Guinness World of Records in the past because you are exactly seeing the same things inside.
