Horseback Riding in Eureka Springs, Arkansas

In the center of the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas is the wonderful and scenic city of Eureka Springs. There we went for a vacation in December when beautiful but dangerous snow was still on the hilly grounds. Eureka Springs is famous for things to do outdoors. That day we went on a guided horseback riding.

One Way to Reduce Stress During Traveling

I see that when traveling, it is a good idea to stash some chocolates in our luggage 🙂 Sugar reduces the body’s level of stress hormones known as cortisol, per this press release. I could imagine myself sitting on the airport lounge waiting for my flight and eating (just a little bit of) chocolate. And life would feel so beautiful! 🙂 So when under stress, eating sweets may help to relieve the pressure. Eating fruit rather than candy would produce this effect as well, and even emulates it, for it is naturally healthy.

Getting a Massage While Traveling in Asia

Outside of our Indian hotel premises, there was a parlor, and I went there for a facial, haircut, pedicure and manicure package, as it was cheaper that way for the same amount or result of work, than getting it in the hotel salon, plus I needed to go out 🙂 The spa treatment took longer than anticipated. The facial deep cleaning was good, but I got more facial massage than I did conditioning itself!

Strawberry Picking in Georgia

Strawberry Picking was our idea of how to spend one Sunday afternoon after church! This was at Elliot Farms in Lizella, Georgia, off of the Cherry Blossoms capital, the city of Macon on Highway 80. Aside from the fruit that people picked, they also sold fresh veggies.

Signs of Spring

Hints of wildflowers on the Texas roadsides could already be seen during our trip last week even though we still have about one month to go before spring ‘officially’ begins! It really excited me! I am ready for the new and warmer season! This winter killed most of our plants (even the plants that did not die last year), except the kale.

Meanwhile on my backyard:
