Travel-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Travel

My Supercoach explained to me: time in the valley of hardship and tears is but a brief moment as you travel to the mountaintop. Look up and see the towering peaks. They call out to you, “Do not be slowed in your travel by your tears, we are waiting for you.”

I was wondering if there was a person who pushed the buttons and pulled the levers in my life. I had a better thought; what about a person who set a program in place which solved unlimited ‘What ifs’ in my life. I’m sure you’ll agree, it would be labor-saving.

I love meditative prayer. It’s a place where I keep company with nobility.

I understand when I share the blessings given me with others, I become part of the abundance of the universe. In the measure in which I give, it is given to me. The universal principle is worked on a ‘give and receive’ basis and no human has ever outgiven the universe.

Liberty-Wisdom Snippets From Peter

Liberty

Liberty is Mine

The state of my liberty exists in only one place – my mind. I alone am the keeper of that state. Irrespective of events in my life, absolutely no one can take this state from me. Liberty is mine to have.

There Have been people who have been incarcerated in prisons; even solitary confinement for lengthy periods, who claimed they were free.

If I looked at my day-to-day living as a journey of adventure, it is most likely I will accomplish my tasks. But in addition, I would enjoy a measure of excitement as well.

There were times in my life when I devoted too much time to reasoning. I don’t travel that road anymore.

Bags & Bags – Johannesburg, South Africa

Reblogged from: Bags & Bags – Johannesburg, South Africa – DanVenture Travels

Earlier in the year, I wrote about flying home for the first time in a while. I wanted to share an experience I had on my way back & give some advice to help you avoid being in the same situation.

After having 2 weeks at home, it was time for me to go back. I packed my bags & kept valuables in my hand luggage & other items in my checked-in bags – as best as I could. I weighed the checked-in bags & I was underweight – Perfect! I headed to the airport.

Checking in for an international flight is not as quick as it used to be so it took a while for all my documents to be checked & finally my bags were looked at. I know this happens often, but it has been years since my hand luggage has been weighed so I have developed a habit of stuffing as much as possible into the poor bag. It weighed 12kgs & the airline allowed 7kgs. The gentleman working at the check-in counter asked me to remove some stuff & place it in the checked-in bags. I happily complied. Some of the stuff I removed were sweets & treats (Important info for later). I would strongly advise you to follow your airline’s baggage weight restrictions & this is something I will be taking a lot more seriously from now on.

I said goodbye to my parents & then boarded my flight. Everything went smoothly from then onwards, the flight was great & the arrival procedure was so much easier than I expected. I was on this wonderful travel high… and then I got to the baggage belt.

I knew something was wrong when I saw the front compartment on my one bag was open; I never leave that open. So I take my bags off the belt & notice that both have had their locks & zips cut open. I reported this to the airline & then I went to my apartment to see what had actually been stolen. I lost 2 pairs of shoes, fragrances, biltong & those sweets & treats I mentioned earlier. This isn’t the first time this has happened to me flying out of Johannesburg & I am quite certain it happens to dozens of people daily just at that airport. Having said that, I don’t promote negativity & DanVenture Travels is not intended to incite anger. It did happen though & unfortunately, it is a risk you take when traveling by air.

The first thing I would recommend regarding this is making sure there are no valuables or important/sensitive documents in your checked-in bags. Secondly, get your bags wrapped. Most airports offer plastic/saran wrapping for bags, but it can be quite pricey so perhaps buy the plastic at a supermarket & do it yourself.

I sincerely hope this never happens to you & wish you the best of the travel experience.
