A river Shannon Boating Holiday in Ireland

images6

I have recently come back from what I can only describe as the most relaxing and interesting vacation I have ever been on. This year myself and my wife were looking at holiday options and based on a recommendation by some friends we thought that a trip to Ireland might give us a dose of culture and scenery. I had only ever heard good things about the country, so we started planing. We were informed that the best way to see the real Irish countryside was by boat, cruising on the river Shannon which runs through the center of the entire country. So we did our research and booked a cruiser from a little town called Banagher. We had never operated a boat before but we were given a brief class beforehand which made everything easy.

We booked the cruiser for three nights, we thought that this would allow us time to see the rest of the country and it did. The rest of the country was fantastic but the truth is I never wanted to leave that boat. The river is full of history covering three thousand years, the ruins of churches, abbeys, castles and towers are everywhere and free to explore. Not far from Banagher is the ruins of an ancient seventh century city which you can cruise right up to and walk around. It was all very extraordinary. You will never be cruising for long without meeting a lovely village and stopping in at a pub. One pub we visited was 350 years old and the old part of the bar was preserved from this time. Another small village had huge deserted stone buildings and military towers. A local told us this was in case Napoleon was to attack England by coming through Ireland. All of these structures still stand like ornaments on the landscape passed down through generations until there meaning has been eroded to just spectacular sites. Cruising by low lying green meadows to the sweet backing notes of wildlife all around really recharge my soul. As the famous Irish Poet Yeats said ‘Come with me oh Human Child, to the waters and the wild’ my natural human instincts for exploring, for the wild were satisfied and the scenic delights that crossed my eyes will never be forgotten. Until next year when I will return to the river Shannon.

There is a company called Discover the Shannon Link: which arrange holidays on the river and were really helpful with us.

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Week-long Holidays

travel10

Traveling is an energy-consuming activity. After a week traveling, you will face post-holiday fatigue. You need time to recover. Otherwise, you can’t concentrate on your work. In this sense, I prefer shorter holidays.

Besides, during week-long holidays, you can visit museums, galleries and historical places, through which your horizons will be broadened.

But don’t forget that the tendency to forget what has been learned after a week-long holiday, especially English. During the week-long holiday, you will be addicted to TV show and forget your homework. It’s no good for your study. So we should have a shorter holiday.

The famous saying goes, “All work no play makes Jack a dull boy.” In fact, you can learn a lot in a week-long holiday. This is a good time to pursue your hobbies. I want to be a versatile person. I have several hobbies, but I don’t have enough time to do them because of the heavy burden of my study. I think a week-long holiday is a perfect time for me to pursue my hobbies.

But pursuing hobbies needs money. For example, if you want to travel, you must have a lot of money. I don’t think it’s necessary to spend a lot of extra money on week-long holidays.

If you don’t want to spend extra money, you can just stay at home reading your favorite novels, watching TV programmes or visiting friends. And it is a good time to get in touch with friends.

So I think the advantages of week-long holiday out-weight the disadvantages, because you can take a better rest in a week-long holiday. And after the holiday, you will have more energy to study. In addition, after a long time, you need a week-long holiday to sit down and think about what you will do in the future. In this sense, week-long holidays are obviously better than shorter holidays.

Generally speaking, long time holiday makes people have more time to do what they like to do. They can spend the holiday traveling, going shopping, visiting friends, families or if they like. They can take some courses they are interested in.

Anyway, more spare time gives people a better opportunity to enjoy life. On the other hand, lengthening certain holidays is also a good way to encourage spending. Since people have longer holidays, they get time to do a lot of shipping. Certainly they will buy more things. So lengthening certain holidays in some sense, promotes the development of the economy.

What To Eat During Your Ski Holiday

travel13

Compare for a moment a beach holiday with a ski holiday. The first is all about lying under the sun and doing practically nothing, whereas the latter is taking advantage of as much light as possible by skiing, walking and snowboarding and other activities that require a lot of energy. Besides, a cold environment makes the body burn more calories.

This of course does not mean that we are allowed to forget our good weight loss habits. On the contrary, it is important to be even more careful, because when we get carried away it is easy to forget how to eat properly.

If you are about to leave for your ski resort, for the whole week or just for the weekend, it is important to know how to eat. In this article I will point out a few tips to follow during your winter holiday.

First of all: forget about drinking alcohol to protect yourself from the cold, it is just a myth and a dangerous one indeed. If you feel warmer after your shot of whiskey or grappa, it is probably because of the bar you are sitting in. Since alcohol is a vasoconstrictor, the effect will be exactly the opposite: you will feel cold.

Do not forget the proteins: in a cold environment our body instinctively craves for carbohydrates, forgetting about proteins, which are essential to keep a good muscular integrity.

If you do not want to waste time in the restaurant at lunch, have several small meals during the day, rather than a proper lunch; bring some energy bars with you.

Speaking of bars, be careful with chocolate. It is true that it gives a lot of energy (about 550 Kcal for 100g), but unless you are planning an Arctic crossing, walking 12 hours per day, lower calories bars, with yogurt or muesli are a better choice.

If you have to sit down and have a proper lunch, stay away from fat foods. It is not hard to find them in a mountain resort, but the myth around them is that they will give you more energy, and make you warmer, but in fact they will just slow down your digestion and make your skiing in the afternoon harder. And of course leave alcohol for after dinner.

Even if your lunch was light, always wait one hour before going back to the ski run.

At dinner, if you had carbohydrates for lunch, balance them with proteins.

Now go have fun!
