Ranches are a great alternative vacation option. You still get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, but, instead of laying on a beach, you are treated to the slow-moving life of a ranch. There are many adventures to be had on a ranch, including horseback riding, hiking, working with animals and helping with the day-to-day operations.


The first decision is deciding what you want out of a ranch vacation. Similar to other vacations, not all ranch trips are the same. Some are more hard work than others and some are focused on sightseeing and enjoying the great outdoors. There are also many locations for ranch vacations — in mountainous regions, forests or deserts.


Make sure to pack sensibly. Most likely, there are lots of physical activities happening on a ranch, so clothing should be durable and ready for all kinds of weather. Many ranches include horseback riding and this can be a toll on your muscles if you’re not used to riding for hours at a time. Pack appropriate medication and aids for muscle pain.


Ranches are a fun way to experience a different way of life and are enjoyable. This type of vacation is a fantastic alternative to the norm and will leave you with great memories.

Do you like fireworks? If you do, then you may have to check out Germany’s ultimate celebration of pyro-technics. European countries are known for their love of fireworks on New Year’s Eve, or any anniversary celebration, in fact. Fireworks are more accepted as a casual pastime in Europe than they are in the United States. That said, there is nothing like the unbridled celebration that is the Berlin Pyronale.

Best Souvenirs to Buy in Galicia

The Spanish region of Galicia sets itself apart for many reasons, like its vistas of the Atlantic from its perch in northwestern Spain right above Portugal. Its cliffs of Cape Finisterre are the end of the world or were thought to be by the Romans. The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail runs through this region, as well. The landscape is beyond comparison as is the food.
