Your Traveling Companion

A traveler may experience an uncomfortable feeling especially if he’s on a place with a different time zone than they have back home. Every traveler needs his own alarm clock. Whether you are on vacation, on a business trip or for any other reason that you are traveling, an alarm clock is a very handy companion to tag along. This way you could keep track of your own time without depending on anyone else.

Alarm clocks should, of course, be portable. They should be able fit in your luggage without worrying that it will be broken. Another feature of your handy clock is that the numbers should be easily read and at the same time they should be easy to set. This way you would save yourself from fussing around trying to set the time for it to alarm.

The purpose of the alarm clock is to wake you up on time. So choose one that wakes you up with familiar sounds like beeps or rings. This way you know that the sound comes from the clock and not somewhere else.

They come in different styles and features. Most of the alarm clocks for travel are relatively small. But some of them also come in like large pocket watch that flips open. This way the clock inside is protected from bumps while inside the suitcase. There are small clocks that look like cell phones too! Whatever the size of the travel alarm clock, surely, they always come with their protective cases.

Travel alarm clocks can be both expensive and cheap and are sold in all department stores as well as luggage shops anywhere. It depends on the taste of the traveler whether to pick a pricey or inexpensive one. The important thing is, it should function well and serve its purpose: to wake you up.

A special feature of a travel alarm clock is that you get to choose the alarm. There may be one that could record your favorite song that automatically plays on the set time. Other soothing sounds are available too! However if you’re the type that sleeps soundly, a soft toned alarm clock is not for you. You better choose one that has a loud alarm sound to wake you up.

Never choose an alarm clock that has to be plugged in for you never know when there will be a power failure. If this event happens, your alarm clock can’t help you.

These alarm clocks have their own setbacks too just like your everyday alarm clocks like the battery running out before it alarms or the “shaking” of the clock might cause the battery inside to move thus stopping the alarm.
Dont forget to check your health before travelling

Tricks That Can Make Traveling By Sea Easier

Motion sickness is common to almost everybody. It is usually frequent to those who travel a lot, whether by land, air, or sea. The different forms of motion sickness are based on the kind of transportation that they employ.

One of the most common kinds of motion sickness is the seasickness. It is usually characterized by a sensation of nausea and vertigo.

People who experience seasickness are those who are not conditioned to travel by sea or who cannot stand the swaying motion of the boat brought about by the waves. Though, there are others who experience seasickness as soon as they step aboard, even if the ship is not yet moving or is in the dry dock condition.

Basically, the results and effects of seasickness is not very alarming, except for those who have important matters to attend to while aboard a ship. This means that people who have duties in the ship will have the tendency of not performing their duties well if ever they get to experience seasickness.

Causes of Seasickness

Generally, people are conditioned to stay upright by maintaining the center of gravity within their feet. If motion is applied, the body tends to have visual confusion. Here, seasickness starts.

Moreover, the irregular pressure on the bowels, wherein the diaphragm tends to move along with the movement of the ship, can also cause seasickness.

With the advent of medical advancements, people can now cope up with seasickness through medications. These medicines have special components that normalize the condition of the body so as to adapt with the changes in the environment.

Tricks to Deal With it

Aside from medications, there are different ways how to cope up with seasickness. Here’s how:

1. Waves trigger seasickness.

Most experts say that it would be better to focus one’s sight to the horizon. It would be better if people will not look at the waves because the motion that it entails will render more confusion on the body’s ability to keep the center of gravity on their feet.

2. Adults should be more prepared with medications that will help reduce seasickness.

Studies show that seasickness is more prevalent in adults than children below 12 years old. Particularly, cases of seasickness are higher in females. According to the statistical reports, there are seven cases of seasickness in females and only one in males.

3. When sleeping, people should lie on their backs.

4. People who are prone to seasickness should stay where the fresh air is available.

Indeed, seasickness is not a problem if people will know how to cope up with it.

If you don’t have a lot of luggage, and aren’t very particular with time, it is best, and a lot cheaper to book a connecting flight instead of direct.

Use the senior citizen discount
