Going on Vacation to See Niagara Falls and Interested in Learning More About Them

I am going to be going on vacation to Niagara falls in a couple of weeks with my parents, and I am hoping to learn more about them before I go. I have to do a presentation in school later this semester for my English class, based on experiences from a family vacation. This seems like it would be as good of a topic as any to use for my presentation, so I am going to go ahead and try to learn what I can. I am going to look for niagara falls facts on the Internet and try to learn more about the huge falls.

I have seen the falls before in pictures, and on television as well, but I imagine that their size is not fully respected without seeing them in person. I know that they have decks around the falls where you can walk down into the mists that are generated from the crashing water. I wonder how wide the falls are, I know that they are pretty large, and that their span goes across the border into Canada. I bet they look majestic, and I am glad that I am going to get to see them up close. I have heard that you can also take a boat beneath the falls, and I wonder if I will get to do that with my family during our visit. I hope so, because that sounds like it would really be an awesome experience. I wonder how high the falls are, and also, how much water flows over the falls on a daily basis. I bet you could feel a whole lot of Olympic sized swimming pools with the amount of water there. I am also curious as to how the falls first formed, and their geologic history in the area.

After Cancer Came My Trip to Spain

I went to check out some Barcelona attractions to see on my trip to Spain. I was diagnosed with cancer over two years ago, and I was completely devastated. I was a single woman, and I had never been sick in my life. I took good care of myself, so I had no idea why I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. For about two months, I had no idea what to do, I knew that I did not want to have to do chemotherapy, but the doctors were not really giving me that many other options. I decided that I was going to look and investigate for myself. I found out about a clinic in Mexico that treated cancer naturally, and since I spoke Spanish, for me, I thought that would be the best.

I went to Mexico, and I had a great team of doctors. I met a great woman from Spain that was also there. She told me a lot about Barcelona, and I promised myself, that after I got well, that I would go to Spain. I received treatment for three months, and after six months, I was cancer free. I still had to wait a year to travel, but I was already planning my trip before the year was over.

I found that great website and I was able to plan everything over the internet. I went back to Mexico , and they told me that I was doing great. I was able to go to Barcelona, and it was the best trip of my life. I felt like I was alive again. I loved Barcelona, and loved touring and I also was able to see my friend. I really loved Spain, and it was a great reward trip for getting over my cancer. Ever since I went to Mexico I wanted to go to Spain, and I was happy that I was able to make my dream come true.

Vacationing in the Greek Island of Mykonos

My parents and I are going to spend the last month of summer vacation on a Greek Island. We are going to rent something called a Mykonos villa. They had me pretty confused until I looked it up. The site I read has a lot of beautiful pictures and they had some great beaches. I tried to get a look at the place we are renting on Google Maps, but they did not have a good translation of the place names I think. It seems to be a short distance away from the place where you can see the cruise ship tied up at the dock on Google Maps. At least I think so, but honestly I can not really figure out the Greek writing on the names of the places and roads.

I Am Getting a New Bike

I am going to start doing a lot of bike riding and I am looking for some good touring bicycles. I have decided to ride my bike to work every day, so I need something that is really dependable. I have had a few mountain bikes before but never a touring bike. I have read that touring bikes are basically a combination of a mountain bike and a road bike. I am looking for a bike that will last me for many years and am willing to pay extra to get the quality that I want. I also would like to find a bike that has a really long warranty so I do not have to worry about buying a new bike for a long time. I also would to make sure that my bike will be comfortable on long rides.

I have not ridden a bike in a long time but I did enjoy it before. I cannot wait to start riding again but am hoping that I can find the right bike for me without going over a thousand dollars.

I Love My New Virtual Mailbox

I have to say I really like this virtual mailbox service that I started using a few months ago. I travel a lot and it is really helpful. What happens is all of my mail is forwarded to my virtual box and then they scan it and upload it to me so I can read it from anywhere in the world. Whoever came up with this idea is a genius I think. I have managed to avoid being late on several bills that I would have forgotten about without this service. It is well worth the money to have everything taken care of for me while I am on a trip.

Thankful for the Support That We Have Received

Our family had always been active in things like fundraisers, and walks and runs that were designed to raise money for cancer awareness. Currently we are engaged in a cross-country walk that is taking place in the United Kingdom designed to raise money for cancer treatment. It has been extremely encouraging to see the support that we have receive from individuals either walking down the street or tourist using a Sightseeing bus tours in Liverpool to tour the city. This year is the first year that doing a walk for cancer has taken on a personal note.

As a family we have been extremely fortunate because over the years we have not had anyone in our family deal with serious illness.
