Disadvantage Traveling Out Of Country

Travelling out of the country seems to be fun and exciting. However, the hurdles that accompanied our thrill is unexpected. It starts with the Immigration at the airport and the Embassy where we are scrutinized thoroughly for the purpose of our visit to a certain country.

With my experience, I was almost left in the Immigration. I was held in the Embassy for almost 2 hours. They were very critical when it comes to tourists. But I do understand their protocol especially those who leaving and entering the country. Imagine the show money should be a maximum of US$ 10,000. Better that my purpose was research. But still all the files of my laptop were scanned as well as the Facebook messages and my emails. The good thing that happened was that from being suspicious, they become impressed with my work because I was able to make studies outside the country even if I was not able to visit them physically. I was really afraid to be left in the airport because I have spent much for this travel. My God, I did not sleep for 3 nights because of my immediate need for money to cover my round trip air fare, hotel accommodation and food not to mention to buy enough amount of US dollars in my pocket as a show money in case the Embassy will question my capacity to sustain my stay in Malaysia.

But after going through a lot in the Immigration, I was very happy because I can now go anywhere in the world as a researcher and a writer with no hassles at all. I was able to prove my credibility and identity to them that nothing is impossible if you put your mind into what you are doing.

Just never think that when you go out of the country, it makes you a nobody. You have a very important contribution to make a change especially in the lives of the significant people around you. Lots of people become successful because they are able to overcome all the odds on their way to achieving their dreams. Accept and adapt change! There is no sense in spending your days talking about who you used to be. It will only prevent you from creating a successful and meaningful life.

If you spend too much on talking about your ideas, gathering information, reading, researching, attending seminars, and listening to what everyone else is saying and not putting into action all that learning and knowledge to make your life happen, you are bound to fail.

When you are determined to do what you want, no one can stop you. It’s a matter of having self-confidence, perseverance and hard work.

Never hold yourself back, put worthwhile goals into action. Walk the talk and apply all the learning and knowledge you have to make things happen and make a difference in your life.

Benefit Order From Tours Company

Monotonicity. The word itself is monotonous, but it accurately describes the mechanical nature of our mundane lives. You go to work, come back, eat, sleep and you repeat it again tomorrow like clockwork. Do you ever wonder how to break this routine? The answer is simple, travel. Seeing new places excites new feelings inside us, giving us new perspective towards existing things, thus overwriting the obsolete ones. But planning a travel itinerary is a hectic process and most of the times you worry about how to reach a destination instead of enjoying the journey to that destination. Then the best course of action is to employ a travel company to do your planning and then you are left to enjoy your journey and nothing else. But should you take the services of a travel company? If these thoughts are clouding your mind then, let me clear them for you and explain why you should opt for my suggestion.

1. Convenient

Since all the necessary reservations would be done for you beforehand, even before you reach your destination, you can skip the long queues and jump straight into the experience you booked to enjoy. It is always a good idea to reserve your time for experiences rather than waiting for that experience to happen eventually. Thus, it is hugely convenient and a time-saving option.

2. Deals

Tour and travel companies usually have good relations with hotels, restaurants, etc. and can provide you with fantastic deals over your reservations. This saves you a lot of money which you can spend on other things and exploit more fun out of your travel. We all love saving some cash and if you have the same mindset, you know what you have to do here.

3. Recommendations

A good tour and travel company tries to enhance your trip by recommending what else you should be doing besides your usual preplanned itinerary. We almost never know the hidden gems of the places we visit until and unless a local tells you about it. The company knows a lot about the travel they are planning for you and also recommends what you might as well be doing which many travelers may not know.

4. Timeline

Since your trip is organized by a third party, they can provide you with a timeline of your journey, explaining in detail beforehand what lies ahead on your path. Knowing what to do and when to do, helps us avoid any unprecedented situations and makes our trip go smoothly and we can enjoy to our fullest without worrying about a single thing.

5. Solutions to your problems

The last and the best advantage of employing tours and travel company is that you can address any problem which you encounter on your journey and you can rest assured that the problem will be solved as soon as possible. You will not be facing any problems on your own and everything can be handled by the company itself and instead, you can use up your own time on meaningful things like making memories.

Things You Should Know Before Visit Triangle of Fire

About October 1 1888 a lens lantern with a red light was mounted on a pole to mark the eastern entrance to Port Townsend Bay. In 1892 the Lighthouse board recommended a large fog bell be installed to warn of the sharp turn in the course when entering for leaving Puget Sound. $3,500 was allocated by Congress on March 3 1893 and a one and one half story six-room keepers house with a fog bell tower was built and put into operation on April 7, 1896. The huge 1,200 pound bell would strike twice every fifteen seconds during periods of fog or low visibility.

Seventy-year-old former sea captain Osmore H Morgan was the first keeper. He had spent the prior fourteen years as head keeper at the New Dungeness Lighthouse. His daughter, Nettie Race took over after his passing in 1907. A few months later Axel Rustad was appointed keeper and he and wife Karen took over. They stayed for ten years raising four sons in the keepers quarters. The only water for the family was rain water collected and stored in a 5,000-gallon redwood tank which was located in a shed behind the house.

In July 1903 the North Pacific, a side wheel steamer struck Craven Rock off Marrowstone Point in a dense fog. The steamer had 14 passengers aboard who were taken to shore by lifeboats and the tug boat C. B. Smith. Lighthouse keeper Morgan fed and sheltered them until they were taken aboard the steamer Mainlander which had run aground on Marrowstone Point that same morning but was afloat again at high tide. The North Pacific was a total loss as it sank in deep water.

In 1907 construction of Fort Flagler was completed. Fort Flagler joined with the guns at Fort Casey on Admiralty Head and the guns at Fort Worden near Point Wilson to form a “Triangle of Fire” to prevent enemy vessels from entering Puget Sound

Dense fog caused another mishap in August 1908. The 502-foot-long armored cruiser USS Colorado ran aground on Liplip Point the southeast tip of Marrowstone Island. This incident cast light on the need for more navigational aids in Puget Sound. On October 22, 1913 Congress appropriated $30,000 for improvements.

Marrowstone Point received a new fog signal and light in 1914. An experimental acetylene gun was installed in a wooden building thirteen yards northeast of the bell tower and took the place of the fog bell. Mariners were asked to report the efficiency of the gun to the lighthouse inspector in Portland.

A new acetylene gun was installed atop a concrete structure just two months later. At the same time, the light was changed from a fixed red to a quick two red flashes every six seconds. The acetylene fog gun was the first of its kind to be used in the United States.

Several improvements were made over the years until 1962 when it was automated. In 1972 the Coast Guard transferred the property to the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to be used as a research facility. The keepers house is now used as a guest house for scientists who visit the Marrowstone Marine Field Station.

Still standing at the waters edge are the structure that held the light and fog signal and the light tower. The flashing white light is still functioning but the fog signal is no longer being used. The station is now being used as a marine ecosystem health and marine fish health research facility.
