Getting Ready for the Big Trip

There is nothing like taking your first big trip after college. If you are expecting to graduate soon and are just starting to get ready, think about where you want to go and what you will need to do to get ready for your trip.

Whether you are planning a two week booze cruise or a year-long around the world on a shoestring budget, there are a few items that should be on your to-do list before you embark on your journey. Because this might be a once in a lifetime affair, you should definitely plan ahead to make sure it is a worthwhile experience. While you can definitely wing it and have an okay time, an ounce of preparation is often worth more than a pound of on the fly creativity.

In addition to printing out itineraries and keeping track of all of the best flight deals, you definitely want to scope out some of the top gear available. But be careful not to overload your pack. Rather than bring along a lot of useless cosmetic items, consider setting yourself up for success by investing in a visit to a nail salon, getting a facial, and putting in eyelash extensions before you ever take off. With these cosmetic adjustments taken care of, you can lighten your load significantly. Rather than worry about carrying along half of the bathroom vanity on your trip, just take the necessary essentials.

Getting your pampering in before a big trip is important for other reasons, too. It is important to build a little bit of separation between your everyday life and a big trip. You don’t want to use the trip itself as a de-stresser, because then that becomes the primary focus. To make sure you make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity to see the world, you should make sure to hit the salon in between graduating and taking off. That way you can take advantage of some relaxation time as you get ready for your trip.


When it is time to take off on your big trip, you will be both mentally and physically prepared.

You Helped Us Raise Lots of Money

The diamond party bus was the perfect party bus for us. I work for a animal shelter and every year we have a huge Christmas party to raise money for homeless animals and for the shelter itself. This job is not just a job for me it is my entire life. I have always known that I wanted to help homeless animals find loving homes. When I was little I rescued my first cat. Someone had dumped a little kitten on the side of the road and somehow it came to my yard, which was pretty far from the highway. I knew from that day on it was my calling to save all of the animals I could. Continue Reading →

Limo Rental for Prom Night

My daughter is going to be going to prom soon, and I want it to be an extra special experience for her. I know that she is going to have a great time, but we have been planning, and trying to make everything turn out great. I know that there are still some hurdles in the planning but I just went to the website for Paradise Limo in Toronto to start the process of renting a limo for prom night. Continue Reading →

We’re Using a Bus to Keep Our Kids Alive and Happy

Wanting a way to keep our kids safe when they came home for homecoming, my wife suggested that we use to get a party bus for the kids and their friends. All of them are in their twenties. Homecoming is when kids come home once per year in small towns to attend a local football game, see friends and spend time with family. It has always been a big deal here in the South. And with that, it’s important for parents to remind their adult children to not drink and drive. We figured out how to take it out of the equation completely.

Each of us in our small town came name someone’s child who came home for homecoming and then promptly shortened their life by not heeding what they’ve learned all their life about not drinking and driving. Some think that because we’re surrounded by country roads, there’s less traffic, and therefore, safer. But there is more to it than that. First, most of our road have been dug out between mountains. So, they’re very windy, curvy and steep. Not only that, too many other people think that they’re safer because there’s less traffic on them, and as a result, they speed by going 20 or more miles over the speed limit all the time. We aim to keep our own children from getting into a wreck with the help of a sober driver and an over-sized vehicle that will help to keep them from becoming a statistic.

My wife and I originally told the kids about the bus before they came home, and they both gave our a whoop of glee. But we were also very careful to remember to tell them that this is for their own safety and well being. We wanted them to know that so that they can pass on the same message to their kids one day.

A Vehicle Large Enough for All of Us

When you want the most comfortable transportation available, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For me, I think of limos. I have been in a few for various reasons, mostly weddings, and there is just nothing that can compare to that. So, when you want the most comfortable ride possible but you need it for over 30 people, what options do you have other than a limo? That was my dilemma, so I looked at to see what the largest capacity was for one of the limos in their fleet.

I felt that if needed, we could always rent two and just divvy up the group. Taking two vehicles is still better than taking eight or nine. However, once I got to the limo site, I was happy to see that their largest vehicle would hold 50 people. I didn’t need one quite that big, but it was nice to know for future reference.
