Just a housewife who loves to travel, see new things & meet new people. I have a special love for beaches, warm water & never-ending blue skies. My favorite place on Earth, to this point, is Cabo in the Winter, when the whales come through with their calves during migration. Most amazing thing EVER.
Traveling to New York City with teenagers. What are the best things to do if we are only going to be there for 2 nights?
Go to a show, and just walk the neighborhoods, eat! If you have girls or fashion loving boys-go to the big department stores, the flagship stores, and specific designers stores, plus places like H&M. almost 7 years ago
I second, if you're into NASA, Disney & shopping, Florida is made for you-the Space Center, Disney, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, all have their largest complexes there. Surrounding it all is shopping-discount/outlet malls, luxury goods & plenty of souvenirs. It's easy locating anything you could want-Stone Crabs on dry ice, Mickey Mouse tee's, astronaut ice cream...all at your fingertips. Fl is home to some of the nicest US beaches, even islands are a short flight from some areas. If you enjoy nature/animals-visit 1 of many swamp/natural habitats, some which allow for interactions with dolphins, safari animals, alligators & more. Searching for history & culture? Miami has a renowned Art Deco scene, 4 star dining & a chic feel. Many beautiful people visit & live there, enjoying nightclubs, beaches & hotels built to see & be seen in, plus authentic Latin/Cuban culture. Key West has more of a relaxed island feel & a very colorful, rich, interesting history including everything from Hemingway to ghost hunting tours. Another draw is the lively nightlife, gorgeous views & fantastic food, which incorporates flavors & techniques from many islands & cultures, with fresh seafood. Broadway shows & big name concerts are easy to find in most big cities, either as part of a tour, or permanent show. Florida entertains a wide variety of sports; plenty to participate in: golfing on amazing courses, boating & water sports, deep sea & fresh water fishing, even race car driving . In addition to these, there's nationally recognized spectator sports: college & professional arenas & teams play basketball, baseball & football. Or watch NASCAR & horse racing, all depending on the season. For a first visit to the US, Florida is a good choice-the weather is fairly mild year-round, it's a gateway destination in terms of easy international airport accessibility-many flights come in & out daily, from all over the world. One can spend as little time or money as they'd like..up to...skies the limit, while enjoying a variety of iconic places & activities that are unique to the US. Good for both families & singles/couples, of any age. Good luck, have fun! almost 7 years ago
I am a filipino andThis year i will study in a japanese school. Is it posible for me to learn in just 6 months? Without any exprience at all
I don't know about entering or enrolling in school, but I think that if you really buckle down-do things like hire a tutor or a buy really good language program like Rosetta Stone, and make all your free time about learning Japanese, you could pick up enough to be able to get around/communicate when you get there. If you try to practice conversational skills with someone who is a native speaker of Japanese, or at least is fluent in it, that will help immensely. With that base, once you get there, and are immersed in the culture & lifestyle-you'll become more & more fluent and comfortable-you'll really have no choice, lol, but it's the best way to learn real world language skills, for any language. I have no doubt if you begin now & really concentrate & spend time on learning at least the basics, you'll be amazed how well you understand & speak Japanese by April. Best of luck, and congratulations, that's a really great choice to make. almost 7 years ago
