5 Tips for Your Dream Camping Trip

Camping is an alternative and inexpensive way to relax and to enjoy nature. Whether you stay in a cabin, RV or tent, camping has amazing health, mental, physical and social benefits! Studies have shown that being close to nature makes your mental and physical health better, you start to appreciate nature and surroundings, boosts your self-esteem and inner strength (putting up the tent, starting a fire, cooking a meal are challenges you need to overcome!). But, sometimes, bad weather, being eaten alive by bugs, taking too much stuff and having to carry an unnecessarily heavy backpack can decrease the joy that you could have experienced during your camping time. So we have listed for you 5 tips that will make your camping a relaxing one!

1. Pack light

Pack simple! Take all the necessary accessories you will need. A tent is the first camping essential if you want to be protected from the wind, rain or sunlight. Grab a tarp as well. A tarp is a perfect tool for covering something you don’t want to get wet. Don’t forget thermals and waterproof rainwear. Take good lightning, because you won’t be able to do anything in the dark. Keep supplies in a well-marked, durable, waterproof container and keep all your items organized. And if you forget something, don’t worry. You won’t make the same mistake next time.

2. Camp close to your house

You don’t have to drive far away to feel far away. A family campout, not a miles away will be a really memorable experience. You feel more confident and safe, thus making your spontaneous camping trips more frequent.

3. Organise a short trip

You need to plan and pack much more if you want to go on a longer camping trip. Even if you are camping for one night or two, you will anyway have the feeling of being close to nature and the chance to see breathtaking views. Short camping trips are easy on the wallet and you won’t manage to get tired.

4. Read up

Read instructions for your equipment beforehand. Trying your equipment out in advance, in the comfort of your home is really important.

Read about the area you are heading to! Are there poisonous plants, animals or insects there? Pack your first-aid kit properly ( mosquito repellent, pills for a headache, etc.). I am sure, you don’t want to be caught helpless far away from home.

5. Get Prepared for Anything!

Last but not least. Get ready for anything. Tell your family and friends where you are going and how long it will take. Take some money with you in case of emergency. Grab some disinfectant wipes in order to prevent any bacteria from spreading, some good tarp in order to stay safe from rain and wind.

Final Words

If you are an adventurous soul, camping is definitely for you. It does not need to be complicated. You get the chance to overcome your fear of outdoor activities.

Kuhi Comfort Travel Pillow Review 2016 – Full Review


Getting rest while traveling is always a bit of a lottery. You could be hemmed in between really loud talkers or heaven forbid a cranky baby. It could be that your seat does not recline or maybe the ambient temperature does not agree with your usual sleep preferences. Given all of this, most travellers counts themselves lucky if they can squeeze in a small amount of sleep while they are traveling. However it does not have to be so. Using the right pillow suited for your sleep style along with taking care of other environment variables can lead to sound and refreshing sleep even in a travel setting. The Kuhi Comfort travel pillow is a favorite among many travellers and for some very good reasons too. There are some drawbacks however, which you might want to take into account before taking the plunge into purchasing this piece of equipment.

The Design

The Kuhi Comfort travel pillow looks like a squishy dumbbell. It has two large lobes which are joined together by a narrow piece of fabric. The pillow lobes are designed to support each side of your head as you sleep. This is a neat innovation as it eliminates the fat piece of cushion that would be behind your neck if you were using a doughnut shaped pillow. Now this sort of a design is great if you are the sort of traveller who inclines their head to the side while sleeping. On the other hand it is not at all great if your head tips forward while sleeping. The added “twist” quite literally in the product is that the two lobes can be twisted and repositioned as required for your unique sleeping comfort. This gives the product a good range of customisation that is lacking in other products.

The Construction

The two cushions of the Kuhi are soft and plush. They are filled with polyester fibre and they feel like they are the right balance between soft and firm. The cushions are covered with a polyester microfibre velvet that will ensure that you don’t have creases and weird markings on the side of your face once you wake up from a nap. Unlike most other travel pillows, the entire Kuhi pillow can be washed in the machine and tumble dried. This is very useful for frequent travelers. The Kuhi also comes with a travel case that wraps up the pillow in a space saving manner. This is easily attachable to your travel bag.

Who is it for?

The Kuhi as we have seen works great if you incline your head to the side when you are sleeping. If you typically pitch your head down to catch a few winks, then you may find the Kuhi uncomfortable. With a little practice however I believe anyone should be able to find a comfortable enough position with the Kuhi. It certainly has the potential for providing you with long hours of sleep once you get the hang out of it. For an average size person, it should work perfectly. Given that it is easy to carry and also is washable, it is a worthy buy for anyone who travels a fair amount of time.

6 Tips To An Explosive Email Autoresponder Series

Too many people can get it right up to this point and then everything just starts to fall apart. Inside this article I am going to share with you a few tips, tricks and strategies that are going to get your email marketing driving in the direction that you want it to.

Tip Number One: Make sure that you have an introduction email. Let the person who is reading your newsletter know exactly who you are, what you have done, and why they should be reading every email that you send out to them.

It is important that you establish that connection from day one. It will lead to more people opening your emails, reading your emails and taking the desired action that you want them to take.

Tip Number Two: Make sure that the message that you are conveying to your reader is in-line with what you promised them on your website, capture page or blog. The quickest way to lose a subscriber is to NOT give the exact information that they were promised.

Tip Number Three: Don’t talk religion, politics or sex. Unless you are writing a newsletter that is based on one of those topics, your going to lose subscribers that don’t have your views simply because those topics will offend people quicker than any others.

Tip Number Three: Make sure you give value. Your subscribers have decided to be subscribers because you promised that you had something that they wanted, so always be sure that you are giving them exactly that. Your list of subscribers is the most valuable asset in your business and if you don’t treat it that way it will quickly disappear.

Tip Number Four: Don’t be a spammer. Just because you have a list that you are allowed to market your products to for the rest of time, don’t market to them all the time. This is very important. Don’t make your subscribers feel that they sales tools, they are real people and hate to be bombarded with sales messages as much as you.

Tip Number Five: Make sure that you and your list are building a two-sided relationship. Allow them to interact with you, connect with you and build a friendship. Use surveys, ask question and let them know that you are there to actually help them in some area of their life.

Tip Number Six: Stay connected with them. If you are being consistent in your actions then your list will respond more in every single aspect. They will read more, buy more and appreciate you more as a professional and expert in your niche.

Those six tips about your auto responder series will without a doubt put you light-years ahead of what everyone else around you is doing.
