Valentine’s Day is one of the best times of the year. It is a time when we can spend some quality time with our loved ones. We might not have time to express our feelings on a daily basis, but at least once per year a lot of us think about something that will bring us closer to the ones we care about. Anyway, this talk about Valentine’s Day might probably bring back some romantic memories we had and when it comes to me I once had a great time with my wife in Tampa. There was a time when I was wondering what I could do with my wife and we decided to go on a trip to Tampa, since we were already in Florida. Tampa is a very beautiful city and it is one of the best vacation ideas I can think of. There are plenty of things to do in Tampa. There is something for everyone: cruises, Florida aquarium, Museum of Science, a Zoo and plenty of cozy hotels. Tampa is located on the West coast of Florida and that made it a very attractive place for cruises, so if you will be in the area do not forget to go on a cruise.

Vacation and People with Disabilities
I know that many people with disabilities would like travel as well. If a person is on a wheelchair, it does not have to mean that he cannot travel to various places around the world. Many resorts in different parts of the world offer facilities that can help the disabled make their dreams come true. Each disabled person, however, will have to take some things into account. Here they are:
-Some months during the year are better for traveling than other months are. It is generally better to avoid traveling during winter if a person is on a wheelchair. Slippery sidewalks in many parts of the world can make every trip more dangerous.
-Before embarking on a trip, try to make sure that you know what you can expect from the resort of your choice. Determine whether the resort or hotel is wheelchair friendly or not. Some places around the world are better for people with disabilities than other places are. Traveling to a place that does not offer facilities for people on wheelchairs can be a frustrating experience. It is always better to avoid such destinations.
Alternatives to Car Travel
While for many of us car travel is an obvious choice during a holiday season, some of us will opt for other ways to get to their preferred destination.
Below I would like to offer you a few alternatives that are worth considering. They might prove to be a better option than car travel.
-Planes. Traveling by plane has become much cheaper during the last couple of years. While planes are especially good if you want to travel long distances, you will never be able to enjoy the comfort and freedom you can experience while traveling in your own car. You will not be able to take as many belongings with you as you would like to, so make sure that you only take with you what you really need.
-Buses. If you do not mind traveling together with several dozens of people, you will enjoy traveling by bus. While traveling by bus will not give you the option to stop at any time you want it or to stretch your legs, at least you will not have to drive.
-Trains. While trains are not a popular choice among many travelers, many of us enjoy traveling that way. While many trains might not offer you the comfort your car can offer you, there is something very attractive about traveling by train.
How to Avoid Stress While Traveling
While for many of us traveling is a wonderful experience, many people have bad memories from their travels. The reason many of us might not enjoy traveling as much as other people do is that traveling can involve a lot of stress. Stress, however, can be avoided if a person knows what to do.
-If possible, always arrive at your airport, train station, or bus station early. It is always better to wait longer for your plane, train, or bus than to arrive late and have little time for check-in.
-Make use of lists while packing your belongings. Plan carefully what you are going to take with you.
-Make sure that you prepare enough snacks for your trip. While many planes will offer you a meal during your trip, do not rely on what they are going to offer. The longer the trip, the more food you are going to need. Do not forget about taking drinks with you. Looking for food and drinks while traveling can be frustrating, especially if you do not have enough time and travel during holiday seasons when many shops are closed. Pay special attention to food and drinks if you travel by bus. You will usually not be able to buy any food while traveling by bus. Traveling by plane or train will give you a limited option to buy food, so always be ready to take something with you before leaving home.
