Going On Holidays Without Spending Too Much


To be honest, I don’t really understand it when some of my friends complain about their costs of their holidays.

Some of my buddies seem to spend fortunes especially if they travel abroad such as when they go to Spain or Italy.

vw camperIf I then ask them how comes they spend so much money it usually turns out they booked into some “fancy” hotels.

Simply spoken: It’s their own fault if they want to spend most of their money on their hotel rooms.

As for myself, I am entirely different there.

I don’t care so much about “fancy” hotels but rather want to see and enjoy the things a holiday location has to offer. A hotel doesn’t interest me beyond that I know I can sleep soundly at night as long as it isn’t exactly a dump.

But the coolest and most enjoyable way for me to go on holidays is to hire a camper van. If I get a van I can get anywhere I want and don’t have to care about overbooked rooms, hotel prices or the location of a hotel. I also think that y van is the absolute best option for things such as festivals. Pretty much all festivals I go to have some camping grounds where you can stay as long as the event is going on. This is also fantastic if you want to meet new people!

Fun At The Races: Horse Races, That Is!


horse-racing-3I’ve always been keen on horse racing.

There is something about the atmosphere and excitement at the races that you can’t have anywhere else.

It’s like a giant carnival, sports event and zoo, all combined into one.

And of course there is always the chance that you might win some money and go home a little bit richer than before.

For a lot people tho, horse racing is not any different than if they were to watch a soccer match. It’s just fun, nothing less and nothing more. For others, it’s like a lottery but more in a sense that it’s entertaining to participate rather than making it a real way of living.

The explanation for this is actually pretty simple: Being successful at winning at horse racing requires a tremendous amount of insider knowledge.

So what do you do if you’re an “average Joe” and simply don’t have the time to dedicate your life to the races as is likely the case for most of us?

You don’t spend your OWN time researches the horses, jockeys and tracks but instead take advantage of horse racing tips and strategies that you get from somebody else! So basically, you’re buying their knowledge and time to increase your odds at the races!

If you look around on the internet you will come across a number of number of sites where they sell those racing strategies and most of them actually allow you to try those tips for free. And this is exactly what I would recommend if you want to make a little money on the side next time you’re on the race track.
