Adventure Travel In Australia

Adventure travel developed as a segment of the tourism market during the latter half of the 20th century out of the more general traditional notion of outdoor recreation. Adventure travel differs from from earlier forms of outdoor recreation, however, in that it offers travelers greater opportunities to experience specific physical activities (eg. rock climbing, diving, snow-boarding, kayaking, abseiling) that involve greater levels of skill and, within acceptable limits, risk. With traditional outdoor recreation, the primary attraction is the specific setting: with adventure travel, however, travelers are attracted primarily by the activities offered. Adventure travel is therefore primarily associated with travel products where the primary purpose is to engage in activity and participatory experience rather than the more passive sightseeing associated with traditional outdoor tourism.

Keep Your Cat Healthy and Safe With Outdoor

Most cat owners know that a feline companion can be just as territorial as their canine counterparts. In the wild, a cat is mostly a solitary animal. Although it is not uncommon to see them in defined families, they will vigorously defend their personal space. A cat’s instinct is to wander and explore, in search of mental stimulation. Denying them this opportunity can result in a multitude of behavioral issues. Outdoor cat perch houses are a great way to give a safe haven, prevent behavioral problems, and give them a home of their own.

Cat behavior is characterized by periods of intense activity and restful slumber. In fact, most will sleep close to 12 hours a day. When awake, they often yearn to roam their territory. Important psychological factors are the ability to hunt, make friends, play, and have a defined zone that belongs to them. Cat houses offer a type of home base, a safe place where they can return and sleep.

There are dangers inherent to a cat living outdoors. Cars and other animals pose a great risk to their health and safety. A cat’s territory is defined by the distance that they must

An Outdoor Adventure Through Arizona’s Lower Salt River Canyon

Experience majestic desert scenery, rich riparian nature and enjoy an exciting day of amazing fun and outdoors adventure kayaking down the Lower Salt River. Only a short drive from Phoenix, the Lower Salt River is a very popular destination for Arizonans looking for a way to cool off with “tubing” a widely popular activity for many people during the long, hot summer months. However if you consider yourself an outdoors adventurer and you’re willing to try something new, then I recommend taking a day trip kayaking down the Lower Salt River. Even if you’ve never been kayaking before, the mild and gentle Lower Salt River is an excellent place to start, even if you’re a beginner.

I had never been kayaking before but had wanted to try it for a long time. So when I heard that there was a local group called the Scottsdale Sea and Ski Club organizing a kayaking trip down on the Salt River I quickly jumped on the opportunity and got signed up at the discounted group rate of only $60 which included the kayak rental equipment, shuttle pick up transportation as well as snacks and beverages provided by the club.

Healthy and Hydrated While Traveling

All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it. – Samuel Johnson

Everyone will surely agree with what Samuel Johnson got to say. Yes, traveling has its advantages. But there is one thing that you dread to meet halfway of your destination and that is heat stroke and dehydration. Keeping yourself hydrated while you are traveling is very important. Traveling in a humid environment can predispose someone to dehydration.

Whatever the reasons for your traveling whether you are on family vacation, business trip or an annual homecoming it is important to keep yourself hydrated. Enjoy the moment of your travel and consider these following tips.

Drink Water as Frequent as Possible
Whether you are traveling on the air, water or road always drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Sodas are very satisfying but be careful not to drink too much. Sodas are full of sugar. It will only make you feel thirstier. Avoid also drinking too much coffee because it makes the dehydration worse.

Moreover, bottled waters are too expensive

Adventure Travel With Dogs

Have you ever taken your dog on a camping trip? Have you ever spent a lazy afternoon floating down the river with Fido by your side? How about an overnight hiking and camping trip?

If you are planning to take your dog on any outdoor adventure, prior planning is essential! Taking your pooch with you is much like taking children, you must prepare for them to insure their safety as well as yours and others.

Here are a few tips:

1. Keep your dog leashed, or if allowed; under voice control at all times! Dogs are asked to be leashed for their own safety as much as for the wildlife and other humans. He should have his id tag on his collar at all times. Be familiar with basic animal first-aid for ticks, scrapes or poison
