Love to travel?



Travel has many points of views. It is probably not as fascinating to those who travel on business for obvious reasons but to those of us who travel on pleasure, we definitely look forward to them. You may be on your way to a nice destination now!


   Where to go? What to take? Who to go with? Yes there are a lot of factors on planning a good trip unless you are really spontaneous and feel like "winging" it.


   Most people, if you are like me, like to plan things ahead of time. For instance: Where to go? Feel like browsing the states? The usual comes to mind: New York City, Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles. Whatever your style, go for it.



   However, three are many hidden treasures in our country. If you're a nature buff you might consider the Sequoia National Park in California. Perfect for hiking and just simply staring at these beautiful trees!


   How about camping? Oklahoma offers pretty nice camping sites near their lakes. Try Broken Bow or Beavers Ben sometime. Word to wise, avoid mosquito/tornado season. Eesh!


   If you are an adventurer that needs real challenges and surprises there is always the mid-west. The grand canyon can have the most intense rafting conditions on many rivers. Colorado might surprise you too with numerous activities such as rafting, horse back riding, skiing, snow boarding and for those shopping lovers they offer many shopping centers all over.


   Not an outdoorsy person but still like thrills? Plenty of amusement parks all over the states can accommodate to that. From Cedar point in Sandusky, Ohio down to Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida these roller coasters will flip you in ways you did not know were possible.



   Last place you might think of for this type of entertainment is in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Stratosphere Hotel has few thrilling rides right on its rooftop. Just a little over a thousand feet high, no biggie.


   Also, if you are like me and would never think of skydiving, there is actually a simulated one you can try out in Las Vegas too. Indoor skydiving is a safer alternative if you will. You lay on the floor, turn on the high fan under you and hope the power doesn't go off mid-air: kidding!


   If you however are considering a real calm vacation and just want to kick back and relax you have plenty of options as well. If you like snow Colorado can help with that. Breckenridge is actually a hidden treasure not many know about and offers quiet cabins in the mountains with all the modern luxuries you can ask for.


   However, if you would favor warmer climates there is always the calming Florida Keys or the virgin islands. Many resorts and beach house rentals await. It does not have to weigh heavily on your wallet at all.



   Whatever your choice from thrilling to peaceful, be sure to take what you need, plan out the basics and just have fun.

The Most Effective Weight Loss Program Involves Better Habits

Hair Loss In Women



Every one of us loses hair every day.   We lose it during our shower, we lose it while we blow dry our hair or when we brush our hair and this loss is all normal.  Typically we lose an average of 50 to 100 hundred hairs per day and normally for each hair we lose, we grow a new one to replace it.  However, at times hair loss may be a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist for possible treatment.  Here are some possible causes of hair loss in women and how to deal with them.

Alopecia
