After Natural Disaster, What the Travellers Need to Do?

Some people might have been prepared their travel plans perfectly and have ever been visited some of the destinations at where they needed to be. But the next morning or hours from now in the middle of the night where people are still sleeping, anything could happen especially the natural disaster that has not been warned us before. Be it the earthquake on Haiti or tsunami in some countries at Asia that have been happened before, etc. If you are in such situation, as a traveller, what do you think you need to do?

Things the travellers can do after the natural disaster

You may won’t make your family in a worry so you are going to call them telling that you’re just fine. You are there for holidays and no more than that. But, the other people are losing their home and even their family members can’t be found, I have never hope you will be in that situation, but seriously, what are you going to do when you are still there after the natural disaster?

Double check that you are fine and ensure that your luggage with all of your important documents are in the right place

If you think that you are fine and all your luggage is always with you all the times because you are only bringing a single backpack, then you are truly fine for now. But when you have left them all at the hotel room where you are staying, you’d better getting back there and check if everything is on their place.

It is just to ensure that all you need to get back to your hometown or country is there so you won’t be questioned by the immigration officers. But we won’t go that far for now, you may are thinking that you don’t need to get back now and decided to help the others.

How can you help?

Keep inside your hotel room may not the choice especially when the natural disaster that just happened was an earthquake but you aren’t also know what to do. If so, get yourself out and do a quick observation about the surrounding, you may will meet the others that need a help or meet the local community are offering their hands to the others.

You can also do the same or find the other ways to help each other. For simple thing you can do, check your wallet and see how much money you still got. They may useful to buy the foods and drinks and you can start sharing them with the others.

You can also ask yourself about volunteering. And if you are really can do that, I think that’s what makes us a better person even though your main purpose is not helping each other but traveling.

If you really don’t know how to help and you have not been met the local community, you can ask around where the school or the hospital is as well as the other public service buildings. Those places are important but also the disaster-prone ones that need more helps.

Have you been in a place where the natural disaster was occurring when you were traveling before? What else you could do in such situation?

Summertime Surf Camp At The Pleasant Beaches

Summertime is warming both for our body and heart. This is usually a good time for many of us to spend much time and holidays at outside than before even though kids today are preferring to stay inside while playing games on their phone. I think, some kids are just don’t exactly know what to do and what they have been told by their parents aren’t interested to them. And if you are also experiencing the same, I am here to tell you that spending your holidays in a surf camp at summer will be more interesting than your own favourite mobile games.

What a summertime surf camp means to me?

Summertime and beaches are related one another and I do believe that they are the answers for when and where most of the people are spending their holidays. The interesting thing is that, you will not only go there just to swim and sunbathing after, but a summer surf camp is where you are going to learn how to enjoy the waves at the pleasant beaches as a gift from God.

What a summertime surf camp means to me?

Getting wet in the cold water in the cold season is never been my favourite. But when it comes to a summertime, you know that it is a great time to swim around in the warm seawater. Even though the water is quite cold, the sun will keep you warming.

A summertime surf camp is how you are spending your holidays in a surfing course with the other new people you will meet or those who you are invited in the best moment (season). I know that surfing skills may not the things you are interested in for your future career, but it can always be the travel package that can be experienced by whoever you are.

You don’t have to be an adult person first just to learn surfing and you don’t have to feel that you are too young for that. Teenagers and even their parents can be in a surfing course where there will be the professional surf instructor that can teach them how to start.

As this travel idea is perfect for many of us especially for the family in vacation, your family may also need to know this and start deciding when you are going to have more fun while surfing at the pleasant beaches.

Anyway, the summer surf camp will usually be started at one main beach that mostly at where the accommodation is located. But since there are many surf companies are offering that the beginner surfers as you are requiring more than that, then you will not only heading to more pleasant beaches but also there have been an itinerary waiting for you to explore more of your surfing trip.

As the time is passing by, summer surf camp is also changing in positive ways. People can even use surfing as their own self remedy for healing the anxiety and other health issues, a fun thing to do while exercising, a new way to make and build a better friendship with new people, as an alternative lifestyle since surfers have their own ways to enjoy the life and many more benefits you can get.

And it all started with only one decision which is this time or the next summertime holidays, you will see yourself in a surf camp. Not the other travel ideas. That’s how amazing it is means to me and I am sure that many other surfers will also experience the same or even more.

Later, when you have been mastering some of the surfing skills and techniques, the next time you are heading to beaches for a weekend or holidays, you have been knowing what to do to enjoy your time. So, would you like to gives a summertime surf camp a go?

Why Do Many Travellers Love KITESURFING?

Many people or specially the travellers are saying that surfing is good to have fun and one of the way to challenge yourself. But, the sport itself divided into some activities or other surf sports like windsurf, Stand Up Paddle (SUP), kitesurfing, etc.

Even though that the kitesurfing is a wind powered surf sport, it doesn’t the same with the windsurf because it is used the kite to move the surfboard across the sea and waves. Just imagine about the parachute made kite that will be flew away and will make the surfers following and controlling the kite as well as dealing with the waves.

Top reasons why many travellers are in love with kitesurfing

It can even more challenging than the regular surfing sport itself where I believe that can also be the reasons why the more people are in love with it. There are also the other reasons why travellers are favourite this kind of surf. Some of them will be explained below.

The reasons why many travellers are in love with kitesurfing:

  1. All kind of water sports are always interesting and attracting people. This may the general reason why it is also happening to the kitesurfing. But, pulled forward by the floating kite in the sky is always interesting and so unique even though many of us has an option to be pulled by the boat as well.
  2. Controlling the kite is not easy. You are realising that you are footing on the surfboard above the water surface, that’s why when the kite is moving, the next challenge will begun. Seems like all you need to do is just controlling the kite, but you don’t know where the wind is blowing. Doing that while controlling the surfboard is not an easy thing so there will be more challenges to conquer.
  3. Kitesurfing may help you in making decision faster. Read again the second point to relates it with this one. Controlling the kite as well as the surfboard in the same time can be hard especially for the beginners. But you need to make your own decision about what to do so you are not jump into the water. Time is running faster at that time and it may also helps you in making decision in life as well.
  4. Kitesurfing is a good exercise both for your upper and lower body parts. This benefits are know for surfing benefits in general as well. But, kitesurfing is really maximising your exercise because both of your upper and lower body parts will works together in the same time while controlling the kite and the surfboard. This will also beneficial in exercising for your mid body part since you will also move right and left. This sport will really make you fitter and healthier.
  5. Kitesurfing will encourage you to get your own trip. Travelling is always a good thing for everyone. But, most of us needs the strong reasons in getting it. When you are in love and start to know how to kitesurfing, the spots you keep on visiting can be bored and make you think that you should and need to experience the other spots as well with different sea waves and challenges. There you will decided which beaches or even countries should be visited for kitesurfing.

It is one of the main clues for the website owners when finding the best web development services. If the web company or agency will have both the teams for SEO and web developers, that will really be a good investment for the business site if there will be ones hiring the services.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) itself is a combination of many things and one of its combination is involving in the web design and web development works. To know more about how web development taking the important roles in site optimization, read along the lists below!

1. Structured data and organization

How better web development services will help your site optimization
The marked green box showing the implementation of good Google Search Snippet (the stars) plus the search result is also showing the other links of the site. Can your site be like that?

When it comes to talk about the structured data along with their organization, there will be more times we will need. But for an example, I have got you an above image to show you how can a site with better web development can be seen and identified differently and uniquely on SERP (Search Engine Result Page).

On above image, there are 3 displayed sites and if I will ask you which one will worth your click, I think the one with the stars will also have the good visitors even though it is on the third place among the others. That’s how you should have been developed your site especially for the online shop.

2. Better web development will get a bonus from Google

Better web development services can help your site to get a bonus from Google
This is the sitelinks and not all of the sites get this. What about yours, did you get this bonus?

You can’t get the sitelinks for your site as you want. It is automated by the Google algorithm for the sites that are considered as useful for the users. But, the ways how the site is developed is also affecting this.

The more links or pages of a site will be appeared on Google, don’t you think that it will also be what the SEO campaign is all about? The links that are showed on sitelinks are those who have been considered by Google as the useful ones for the users. So, you can also think that it is a signal of Google trust as well as helping you to build your online brand.

3. Better web development services can even break the rules in better way that can be good for your site’s SEO

I am getting the meta description appearance on SERP for this example. Moz was even saying that the meta tag description is typically up to 160 characters long. But to be honest, you must have been found the sites before that are longer than that, right? If not, see the below image as what I just found just to write this post.

Optimized of meta tag description the better way with better web development services
There are so many sites on internet with longer meta tag description than it should and it doesn’t violate the Google terms and rules.

I won’t talk about the technical stuffs in this. But what you have been reading since the beginning of the post are actually the things that have been the behind of scenes of the site. I have no idea what the codes to be written for the backend of the site and what’s to avoid. But I am sure that the web developers will know them all very well.

One of the services that can help your site to be like the above examples is by talking all the development aspects of your site with the Bali web development company. They must have been known about what to do and they’ve got the SEO team as well to help you get the better developed and optimized site since the first place.
