Tips on How to Beat Jetlag

Wanting to beat Jetlag? Read this tips:

Firstly, avoid alcohol in flight. With the pressurized air in the cabin your body dehydrates substantially, and alcohol affects the body clock by not giving you a full and refreshing sleep. Try to drink as much water as possible. Just ask the steward(ess) for a large bottle and keep it by your seat so you can take sips whenever you want. Drinking a lot of water will also help in other ways. It is highly recommended to move around when in-flight, walk up and down the plane, do dome stretching exercises, to keep the blood circulating, and stop the joints from stiffening.

While seated, swirl your ankles around from time to time. Depending on which direction you are traveling whether east or west, and how much sleep you require, you should set your watch to the local time of your destination as you board, and sleep according to that. This helps your body to start the change in its body clock, which is so important when combating jet lag. Let's say for example that you are flying from Bangkok to Paris then when you board the plane you should set your clock to Paris time and try not to sleep until it is close to sleeping time in Paris.

When you do arrive at your destination, and it is day time, try not to go to sleep, no matter how tired you are. Instead try to go outdoors and into the sunshine if possible, this helps to alter your body clock, and will mean you will be back to normal a lot quicker. One of the first hotels to offer a jet lag service was the Okura Hotel in Tokyo. They would offer the guests, a special bright light in their rooms, special food designed to help the body clock, massages and a whole load of other things, all so that you could be refreshed and ready to go as soon as possible. If you can't resist and your eyelids are drooping and you feel more and more tired, then set your alarm for four hours time, have a very hot bath, and then jump into bed.

Boothbay Harbor. The Heavenly Harbor.

Boothbay Harbor, will my dreams come true? Dear Bloggers, finally, I found a place where I may realize all of my dreams of a heavenly harbor.

A few days ago, when I was fishing at Pantai Marina (the Marina Beach), Semarang, Central Java – Indonesia, I was dreaming of a harbor where I may enjoy many things such as yachting, fishing, eating lobsters and other seafood, enjoying panoramic views, living in a spectacular Inn, etc.

When I was then searching on the internet, I finally found a place that I dreamed of. That’s Boothbay Harbor, a town in Lincoln County, Maine, United States, where the gigantic statue of 'The Old Lobster Fisherman' stand. There, we can find a lot of quality Boothbay Harbor Inn, Hotels, and Boothbay Harbor Restaurant as well.

Although its population was only 2,334 at the 2000 census, as a resource said, the entire region of Boothbay Harbor Maine is a popular yachting and tourist destination during summer months. As a result, each summer, Boothbay Harbor draws crowds of tourists who love to see attractions include the state aquarium, art galleries, boat tours to coastal islands and whale watching. It’s so amazing.

I hope someday I can visit Boothbay Harbor, living in the most spectacular Boothbay Harbor's Waterfront Inn, and Marina. I want to feel a warm, friendly service here. Eating The Maine lobsters and other seafood that served fresh from local waters will be my precious experience. Do you want it, too?

The Mendut Temple and Its Interesting Legend_2

The Legend of Roro Mendut_2.

Dear readers, this post constitutes the continuation of previous article that you can find at the link below:

One night, when Roro Mendut was in her room, someone was suddenly outside her room. He whispered some words to Roro Mendut. And he called himself as Pronocitro. However, Roro Mendut felt curious about this guy, as his voice was similar with her husband’s voice, Prince Kumada.

Roro Mendut : “Hi, guy, is that you, Prince Kumada, my husband?”

Prince Kumada: “Yes. That’s me. Are you alright?”

Roro Mendut : “I’m alright. Oh, my Goodness, where have you been so far?”

Prince Kumada: “It is too long to tell, my wife. We better escape from here this time!”

Roro Mendut : “Sure. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. Let’s get out of here, my husband. I can’t wait any longer.”

Roro Mendut and Prince Kumada then ran away. They tried to escape from Regent Wiroguno’s area. But unfortunately, Wiroguno’s guards were already surrounded them. Roro Mendut and Prince Kumada were got caught, then to be delivered to Regent Wiroguno.

Wiroguno : “You will never be able to secede from me, Roro Mendut! Please, give up!”

Roro Mendut : “No, Sir. I’ll never give up. It’s better to die for me than become your wife. I and my husband can not be separated forever”.

Prince Kumada: “Don’t be arrogant, Wiroguno. Don’t try to take my wife away from me. I will keep alive our love with my blood and my soul!”

Hearing of Kumada’s words, Wiroguno then became angry. He suddenly pulled out his Keris and quickly pricked Prince Kumada’s chest. Prince Kumada was feinted. Fresh blood flowed out from his body, when finally he was died.

Knowing that her husband was died, Roro Mendut quickly grabbed Wiroguno’s Keris from her husband's chest. Suddenly, she pricked her stomach herself with the Keris. Finally, Roro Mendut was dead too.
