Reasons Why You Should Create A Travel Vision Board

If you’re reading this blog, then odds favor that you’re a travel junkie who spends all of their free time dreaming about the destinations that you want to see. Unfortunately, money and time constraints can sometimes keep us from seeing all of the destinations on our lists as quickly as we’d like to.

This is one of the reasons why travel vision boards are so popular. A vision board is a collage or mural made up of pictures that represent different goals, aspirations and dreams. A travel vision board is essentially the same thing, but devoted to the places that you want to visit and see. For example, if you dream of a Las Vegas vacation, you might cover your travel vision board with photos of Nevada.

If you still aren’t convinced, here are some of the reasons why you should create a travel vision board.

Get Inspired Daily

Sometimes we end up putting our travel dreams on the back burner when we don’t think about them on a daily basis. When you have a travel vision board, you see your travel goals in front of your eyes every day. This reminds you to keep working and keep dreaming about all of your dream travel destinations.

Beautiful Artwork

Travel vision boards aren’t just great for reminding you of your travel goals. They also serve as beautiful artwork. If you can’t afford expensive paintings or framed prints, a travel vision board is a great way to add some beauty to your apartment walls.

Help You To Foster Your Creativity

Creating these vision boards is a fun and creative task that will make you feel like an artist. If you don’t have a lot of opportunities in your daily life to feel artistic, this is a great way to unleash your inner artist.

These travel vision boards are a fabulous way to create a visual representation of your travel goals. Whether you want to fly to an exotic country or just visit a neighboring state, try creating a vision board filled with images and photos of your dream destinations. They’re beautiful pieces of art that will keep you inspired on a daily basis.

Summer Getaway at Dakak

I made a promise to my family that we will travel the whole Philippines, one place at a time and we started it last year. This year we went to Dapitan City to see what it has to offer. It took us more than 10 hours of travel from our place (Bukidnon) and I was the only one driving the car. But the long hours of traveling paid off when I saw this:

I took that photo using my latest camera, my Fujifilm X10. I am not a good photographer but I hope you can see the beauty of the place with that photo. I took it standing at Dakak restaurant fronting the pristine white beach while we were ordering for our lunch.

My 2 years old daughter just cant help it. She saw a lot of birds so she went out into the white sand beach and chase it off. The view is still pretty awesome and yes the almost 7 hours drive from Cagayan de Oro City is all worth it.

Dakak Beach Resort has a lot of tour packages for those who are into a tight budget and of course they also offer packages for walk-in customers like me and my family. I chose the room and rides package which costs 1,190php per person (minimum of 10) which gave us the Pavilion Room that can accommodate 16 people.
This Package is inclusive of:
-Overnight at FAMILY PAVILION ROOM accommodation
-Roundtrip airport/wharf/resort transfer
-Fantasyland Rides
-Complimentary use of swimming pools, water slides, beach volley and outside Jacuzzi
So 1,190php per person is not that expensive.

Gloria de Dapitan Fantasyland has a lot to offer too, it is indeed a World Class Theme Park that can be found in Mindanao. Their rides includes but not limited to : old Western train, midi flume ride, tea cups ride, nessie coaster ride, bumper cars, swinger, galleon ride, and the zimmerman ride. They also have different games available to play on and different characters that roam around the theme park. The HORROR House is terrifying and the 5D movie can turn your stomach upside-down.

If I have to give it a score with number 10 as the highest, I would probably give it a perfect 10! We had FUN, we stayed all day in the sun and we enjoyed every single moment of our life when we were in the place. We have traveled a long way from our place but we have discovered different municipalities during our travel.

It is more fun in the Philippines, you don’t need to go out of the country to have a little piece of heaven on earth.

Snow and Skis

How many times have I posted here in my blog that I wish I could spend some time somewhere where Snow is ubiquitous. I am born in the Philippines and have lived all my life here. Philippines is a tropical country. We don’t get to experience the snow and all its glory.

It doesn’t hurt to dream, I am dreaming of spending my vacation in a place where skiing can be done. I have found this luxury ski deals online and I find it amazingly cool. Imagine spending your time in a place where your dreams becomes alive. It is not easy to make your own itinerary, especially if you don’t know anything about the place where you are going to. The deals I have found online can make the perfect itinerary for you and me. You just tell them what you want, where you want to go, what kind of foods you love to eat, and they will provide those for you. You don’t need to think any more about anything. You just need to bring your passport and money and you are GOOD to GO. No hassle, no stress, just simply your dream vacation.
