Despite what many persons may think golfers are not only stuck on the game. They are also on the lookout for a good vacation opportunity when they are not on the course. They are in search of the dream golf vacation which would be the perfect blend of golfing along with relaxation and an opportunity to experience the sites.
Go big or go home. Round the world trips grow less expensive the longer you’re gone. My advice is to take at least six months (preferably a year) for a trip such as this. You’ll find that by flying to ten destinations, several will be super cheap (e.g. Thailand, India, Nepal, Argentina). If you plan accordingly, you’ll be able to extend your trip by spending more time in these areas. A friend of mine spent two weeks in Bali with just enough money for food and board. He hadn’t planned on visiting Bali, but it was a stopover, so he took advantage of it. Those two weeks in paradise cost him less than three days in London. Use this economic differences to your advantage.
Main Dining (aka Formal Dining). All cruise ships have at least one Main Dining venue and many ships have more than one. The main dining room is the embodiment of luxury and service on your ship and they all work hard to offer classy selections. It’s an opportunity to try food and preparation styles that you would never experience otherwise. The main dining rooms will also open for breakfast and lunch. There is no assigned seating for these meals, but you still get great service and the menu selections are very good.
Once you have identified all the ideas you might enjoy doing, there is a sad reality: even in a year, you can’t do it all. So organize those groups of ideas into a “theme” for your trip. Maybe it is seeing all the national parks, or seeing a baseball game in every major-league stadium, or painting a scene in every state. The ideas are endless depending upon your interests.
Include surface segments. Once you have a general outline of travel tips, fill them in using surface segments. For example, you could purchase a flight from Sydney to Bangkok, then travel overland from Bangkok to Beijing (another cheap hub) before flying to London. The surface segment allows you to see more of the countryside between these two cities, and add several new countries to your itineraries. Furthermore, you’ll save more money traveling by train than by plane (one ways are often the most expensive way to fly).
If you’re like me, you adopted the mindset of your parents (we’re not blaming our parents, because they got it from their mothers and fathers!) and the institutions of education and faith that supported a fear-based and shame-based mindset. To control large groups of people, leading by shame and fear is absolutely necessary. It’s so much a part of our society that most of us have some serious unlearning to do!
The lower cost of procedures overseas means you can get all your checkups, that big procedure and any others you may have wanted and still come out in the black.
