Planning for a Travel

No one wants to be stuck in a kind of job that is not rewarding. Put a guy in a particular job for dozens of years and you would surely have a guy that is bored, and feeling hateful of life. There seem to be an inherent or genetic strain in human beings that make us crave for some excitements and novelties in life. Yet, there are many people who seem to be inured to works that are unrewarding. Their works don’t give them the time and financial capability to travel to far-flung places to luxuriate in the majesty and beauty of these places.

First World and Third World Countries
If you are living in a progressive country, travel would be always a part of your game plan. People, for example, in Europe and in North America work for several months, and then go off to some holiday destinations to enjoy the fruits of their labor every year. Yet, those who are born to a third world country often can’t even plan to have a leisurely travel abroad. The majority of people in the third world country are inured to the doldrums and the monotony of hard jobs which are not paying off well. Hence, it would be good sometimes to appreciate the privileges of travel if you can afford it, for almost three fourths of the world’s population can’t even afford to get out of their nooks and crannies.

It’s a good thing nowadays that there are lots of tour promos you can take advantage of if ever you would engage in travel. As long as you book earlier, you will surely get discounts from some airlines and lodging places.

How to Plan for your Travel?
The first thing you should do if ever you are intent on going on a travel is to find travel pictures that would readily inspire you to pursue your plan of traveling. Choose the best pictures of places that you would like to visit and start imagining yourself, basking in the beauty of those places shown in your chosen pictures. Yet, you should not stop with imagining; you should take the first step to achieve your travel plan. Hence, if you are hooked to a very non-rewarding job at present, you should readily move over to another job that would give you the luxury of time and money to realize your travel plan.

Money is essential to the realization of your travel plans; hence, you got to have a job that would allow you to have extra money for travel. Likewise, time is essential to travel; hence, you got to allot a particular time of the year to actualize your travel. Yet, if your job at present is so demanding enough that you can’t even find time to travel, I guess it would be time to start looking for another job. Moreover, if your job at present doesn’t give you enough savings, I guess it is but imperative to look for a job that would allow you to save money for travel.

My longtime friend, for example, who was once a regular employee in one of the offices in Chicago, tried his luck in day trading and succeeded. Now, his new job allowed him to travel while working. I guess you could also take cue from his example.


Tourism in Tokyo

Tokyo is the most populous metropolitan area in the world an added to all those people, are a great number of tourists that the city enjoys. Obviously, with a city this big, it has a lot of attractions for visitors to see but according to possibly the best, recommended travel blogs these are ones that are among the most popular:

Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, as you would expect, is certainly worth a visit but almost as impressive as the palace itself, are the Palace’s East Garden. Many of the shrines and tombs located in the Palace are free to see, as is entry to the magnificent East Garden where you will find Emperor Showa’s collection of art on display in a museum.
Palette Town is home to Toyota’s car theme park and exhibition hall, both of which are worth visiting.

The headquarters of Fuji TV is somewhat of a landmark in Tokyo and although you are free to visit the recording studios of TV programming, there is a charge for entering the building’s observatory with its spectacular views over the city.

The Suginami Animation Museum allows you to follow the history of Japan’s animation and see exhibits that demonstrate the Anime making process.

To get a real bird’s eye view of Tokyo, Mount Fuji and the surrounding area, a trip to one of two 45th floor galleries of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, will afford you that.

There are some interesting parks in Tokyo that are worth visiting like Yoyogi Park where you can enjoy street performers and bands all day long on Sundays or Ueno park which is world famous for its Cherry Blossoms and Lotuses.

The Sumo wrestling Museum is full of the history of sumo and has pictures of all the greats through that history, something like a hall of fame. Near to this museum is the Kanto earthquake Museum which recalls the deadly earthquake of 1923.

For the opportunity to read your very own newscast, you should visit the NHK Broadcasting Museum where you are also shown how the 1964 Olympics, advanced broadcasting technology.

If you have kids accompanying you, you may want to take them to Tokyo’s Fire Museum where they will be allowed to try on old firemen suits and play on the old trucks, all whilst getting their photos taken of course.
Of course, the list could go on and on with a city this size but perhaps two of the most popular attractions for visitors to Tokyo, are Mount Fuji and the high speed trains. Although not strictly Tokyo attractions, they are certainly attractions that you shouldn’t miss if you are visiting Tokyo. Also don’t forget to meet a Geisha for a photo op.

Of course, if you want some home style entertainment, you can always go to Tokyo Disney but where ever you do choose to visit, a trip to Tokyo will afford you memories that are distinctly oriental and ones that are sure to stay in your memory for a very long time.
