Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?

I am looking forward to visiting Thailand and a few others places in Southeast Asia one day, and it made me think about what shots if any are suggested or required before visiting. After doing some research it looks like I am good to go, with a few suggestions.  There are a lot of questions about vaccinations, however this doesn’t only apply to travel. We have friends who had never vaccinated their child who was turning 5 and getting ready to go to school. I don’t know how it all worked out, as they moved out of state. However I don’t think people are able to get around the “medical reasons” or religious reasons anymore. I may be wrong, but it won’t work when trying to travel. Thus I wanted to share this post about getting or not getting vaccinated before traveling to certain countries. Continue reading “Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?”

What do you Relish in Life? Experiences or Stuff?

beach-day-10-1Today’s Word Press word is Relish, so I have to ask, what do you relish in your life?  Is it the perfect job, the most amazing spouse, or the most intelligent children?  Or is it having the biggest house in the best neighborhood with the most expensive car in the garage?  I have never really been the type of person that was always trying to keep up with the Jones’. However, there might have been a little bit of desire in high school. I remember everyone always trying to outdo the next person, but I tried not to get sucked into it, and eventually it didn’t matter anymore. Continue reading “What do you Relish in Life?
