And yet another spring picture :)

What a bounty we saw in our walk yesterday, indeed, spring is nature's way of saying let's go out and party. ��

A day at the zoo

Visited the San Diego Zoo to see the springing of life.....
The baby jaguar is 2 weeks old I think and the baby hippo is just 6 days old

Making Paris Vacation More Comfortable

People who are visiting France can rent an apartment or house instead of staying in a hotel. Apartments and houses have more space and privacy than hotels.

An Apartment In Paris

A family who is interested in a Paris apartment vacation rental will have plenty of room in a loft apartment near the Eiffel Tower. An apartment with two bedrooms will accommodate seven people. A full kitchen will make it easy to prepare meals. An apartment near the Eiffel Tower is close to Metro train stations.

A House With A Pool
A group of eight can stay in a stone house near a village in the Luberon area of Provence. Outdoor amenities of houses in this area may include pools, gardens, barbecue grills and outdoor furniture. Houses in the Luberon are close to the city of Avignon and vineyards.

A House In The Vineyards

Travelers can stay in a house in the middle of the vineyards of the Rhone Valley. Outdoor amenities of a house in this area may include a garden, an orchard and an olive grove.

A House In The Mountains

A house with more than two acres of land in the Alpilles mountain range will delight people who want to spend plenty of time outdoors during their stay in France. Travelers can enjoy meals in the outdoor dining area and exercise in the lap pool.

Travelers who stay in apartments or houses in France will have amenities that are not available in hotels.

Into The San Diego Wild :)

You may wonder why there is a smile :) symbol after the title. It is because it is not uncommon for me to get comments similar to the two below:

"I was in San Diego, but did not see those at all."
- I guess, it depends on which part of San Diego one focused their travel. Of course, if the focus was the "city", despite all the abundance of nature in and around San Diego, one may not be able to see them because they are not in downtown streets. 

"You always take vacation. I do not have much time to get away as much as you do."
-  One of my professors before told us, "San Diego is one of the most expensive places to live, you could get a place for 1/10th of the price and 10times the size somewhere else. However, if you enjoy a balance of great outdoors and the city, this is your city. You don't need to take a vacation, for everyday is like a vacation. Considering vacation expenses, the price you are paying for to live in San Diego is not that expensive after all."  :)

Oftentimes, we are being mistaken to have a lifestyle that always take vacation. To quote a friend while I toured her around San Diego, she said, "Goodness, Betchai, I did not know these are all just within San Diego and minutes from your home. I thought all the while, every weekend, you take a vacation. Haaayst! Please pray I can find a job, HERE!"

Anyway, let me share with you first a picture collage which somehow summarizes what is around San Diego.

Fishing For A Living

Fishing is a relaxing sport for some people, and for some, it’s a way of life. When you fish for a living, you need to have a boat that has plenty of room while having all of the equipment that you need to cast a line or to bring in the fish on the boat. If you don’t have a fishing boat, there are some places where you can look before you spend a lot of money getting something from a professional fishing company.

The first place to look for a boat that you can use is online. There are some companies that will sell boats at a reduced price if they have new items coming in, and some companies will sell boats that they have repossessed at a lower price. You can also find boats that individuals want to sell. These might be boats that someone wants to get rid of because they get a new one or they don’t want to keep the boat because they can no longer care for it anymore. When you look for commercial fishing boats, you need to make sure the bottom of the boat doesn’t have any rust or holes. You also need to make sure the motor is good as well as the floor of the boat so that there aren’t any leaks.
