Romance is in the air!

person-couple-love-romanticThe most special relationship of all is to spend time with someone you love. Part of what makes those relationships enjoyable is finding entertaining ways to begin building memories.

You’ve all been on that date—the one that was so carefully planned out and you expected it to be perfect. In the end it turned out to be a flop and you were left wondering where in the world it all went wrong.

Romantic entertaining can be a little bit challenging because each person enjoys and appreciates different things. Roses are nice, but orchids are more romantic when they’re your partner’s favorite flower. Dinners at the most expensive seafood restaurant are special, unless one partner isn’t that crazy about seafood. The key to planning date-night entertainment that creates lasting, romantic memories is to discover the things that each person really appreciates. That takes communication.

Romantic Entertaining: Doing What Your Partner Likes

Does one of you favor a particular type of cuisine? Is it Italian, Mexican, Chinese, or Mediterranean? Pick a few ethnic dishes and cook them up together. Set out the place mats and best dishes. Do some searching to find out what kinds of wines accompany your favorite dishes and try some of them. Schedule a date at a cooking school and learn to cook a meal from a professional chef.

Vacations don’t have to be expensive to be fun. Explore options for taking a scenic ride by train, or sail down the Mississippi River on a paddle boat, learning about history along the way. Spend a day at the racetrack or dog park and place a few bets.

Get some ideas on how to put your feelings into words like leaving sweet messages on a white board before you leave for work or taping a note onto the bathroom mirror telling  your partner to have a good day. Buy your partner’s favorite bag of chips or candy and leave it in a place where he or she will be sure to find it.

Head out to the local zoo and feed the animals. Take in some of the shows about birds, reptiles, or dolphins. Spend the day at a botanical garden, nature walk, museum, or art gallery.

pexels-photo-87334Take some silly or serious candid photos along the way. Grab a couple of sketch pads and colored pencils and draw some flowers or silly pictures of the animals. Take a fun tour like a Segway tour, a boat tour, a restaurant tour, a ghost tour, or a tour about the mob.

The intent of this blog is to scroll through it together and start a conversation about things that each of you like and don’t like. It’s a place where you can discover things that you have in common with each other and have no connection to past relationships. It’s a place for entertaining ideas for this relationship to create memories that are fun and never flop!

How to Choose a Kid’s Action Camera

As photographs become the norm for recording events, it is becoming necessary for parents to own action cameras to snap the clearest shots of their children as they experience life events. To choose the perfect action camera for the set of circumstances, though, can be much more difficult. It is best suggested that before purchasing, or even searching for, an action camera, one should make a list of what is needed and wanted for this specific action camera. Examples of these variables can be, but are not limited to: durability, waterproof case or equipment, mounts, size, price, memory, and record time.

WWOOFing, which stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways for individuals to travel and see the world. WWOOFing works by providing volunteer opportunities to individuals in certain countries and cities. The volunteers work on the organic farm in exchange for food and board. This provides the traveler with a low-cost opportunity to see a new country and gives the farm low-cost labor.

 

pexels-photo-128926How Does WWOOFing Work?

With the help of the Federation of WWOOF Organisations, or FoWO, individuals looking for volunteer opportunities and farmers looking for volunteers can connect and work out a traveling deal. FoWO provides support to volunteers and farmers to ensure safety and legitimacy to the exchange.

In exchange for living in the farmer’s home or other housing accommodations provided by the farmer, the volunteer will provide a few hours of work on the farm. Work can include everything from gardening and weeding to feeding or milking the animals. It may also include tasks like making bread, cheese, or wine.

The length of the stay is determined in the communication between the farmer and volunteer before the trip begins, but can usually be as short or as long as the volunteer wants. The volunteer may choose to stay for only a few days or might even commit to a few months, but in most cases, the trip is only a few weeks.

 

pexels-photo-160188Where Can Volunteers WWOOF?

There are various opportunities to WWOOF all around the world. Regardless of the country you are hoping to visit, you can probably find a WWOOFing opportunity that fits your needs.

African countries include places like Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and South Africa. In the Americas, volunteers can provide WWOOFing opportunities in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica, just to name a few. For someone looking for a WWOOFing opportunity in Asia-Pacific, volunteers can visit Australia, China, New Zealand, Thailand, or Korea. There are also WWOOFing opportunities all over Europe, including in countries such as France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Italy.

Why WWOOF?

Many people dream of traveling the world, but not everyone has the funds to take off to the country of their choice for a few weeks or months at a time. With WWOOF, volunteers can travel the countries they have always dreamed of without much cost. Because they exchange work for room and board, travelers do not need to pay for hostels, hotels, or meals.

WWOOF can also provide a great opportunity to meet new people. On many farms, there will be a number of volunteers. Because WWOOFing farmers come from all over the world, volunteers can engage with individuals of a different culture while exploring an area entirely new to them.

WWOOFing is not for everyone, but it can be for individuals willing to work while they travel. For anyone looking for a new experience, WWOOF can provide a low-commitment and low-cost opportunity to get away from home and see something new.
