What is Travel Insurance?

Many people find that the ideal time for them to travel and see the world is that very point of their life when they can retire and forget about the 9-5 way of life. This gives them more flexibility and less stress.

A large number of seniors look to take on a journey and explore the world in their latter years, as when they have been younger, they have focussed more on their job.

Why people think iPhones are a must have gadget

Smart-phonesThe most common tech gadget that we use in our daily life is surely a smartphone. I have been using smartphones ever since they came into existence. I am a tech savvy guy and for me there is no compromise in choosing the best and latest techs in the market.

Every year there is a brand new model of different flagship mobile companies in the market. Smartphones now serve the purpose of a personal computer in our hands. Each year there are quite a lot of hardware and software improvements, and I delightfully delve into the offerings.

I have used smartphones from brands such as Compaq, Blackberry, Sony, HTC, and Samsung, and of course Apple. From a general perspective all phones serve similar purposes, but these vary significantly in terms of usability, convenience and features.

Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone series are the two most popular smartphone brands in the market today. The competition is intense amongst these two brands, and each year the rivalry gets even tougher with technological advancement.

Girl using iPhoneI personally have been a fan of Apple iPhones for a few years. This brand has been delivering flagship devices in the smartphone market. To me iPhones are a notch ahead of every other company. The ios operating system that iPhones use is much enriched and user-friendly. The operating system is updated in a span of a year and adds many useful utilities to the phone.

The best thing about iPhones is that the ios is Apple’s own. Therefore, the phones are capable of running all the features the ios comes with. Android phones on the other hand vary a lot in terms of functionality. I used to use Samsung Galaxy before I shifted to Apple iPhone.

There were a lot of things I liked in Samsung Galaxy, but there were a lot of things which I did not like. The disliked features were pretty annoying and disrupted user experience. I was on the look for a better phone. I tried my luck with Sony Xperia. It was rich with features, but was heavy and consumed a lot of battery. I was tired of charging the phone twice daily. Furthermore, I experienced the performance degradation.

Now I’m comfortably using the iPhone. I like everything about the phone and cannot find a major flaw. The design of the phone is smart and classy. It is not too big, neither is it too small. It is easy to hold and fits into the pocket comfortably. The layout of the home screen is meaningful and easy to use. The Apple store is an excellent place to find the desired apps.

It has one significant advantage over the Google store, as the apps found in the store are built specifically for iPhones. This is not the case with the Google play store. Due to this, the security of iPhones are much tighter than android phones. There is also a huge library of music owned by Apple. Once you subscribe to the music service, then you really do not need to look anywhere else for your favorite genre of music.

Apple is well known for producing the high-quality music player, the iPod, for years. All the functionalities of iPods are available in iPhones and there is more to it. Samsung Galaxy or any other phones never had this feature. Another important aspect of iPhone is its battery backup. Although the first generations of iPhone were not renowned for battery backup, recent phones are an alternate to that. Now you can go easy with charging.

On a consumer sense, the iPhone is like a must have for most people. It is an indispensable part of my life. I absolutely love my phone and a ‘big up’ to Apple for making iPhones.

Creative ideas to help you write better and beat writers block

Writers block and wasted paperWriting is not always easy as it seems, especially creative writing. Often there are times when you won’t be able to get a writing rhythm or even cannot even start writing about something. This particular phase is called writing block.

Those who write have gone through this phase at least once in life. Sometimes nothing would come out of a writers head even though their pens are ready to flow through the paper. The type of block varies from writer to writer. Some cannot feel the subject, some just do not find the urge from the inside, and some just have too much going on their head.

I experienced this situation every now and then. There are times no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to write anything decent. So if anyone goes through such time they should remember that it is something very commonplace among writers.

Now the question is what to do in such situations. Should writers take a break from writing until they find their usual writing rhythm? This can be good for short term, but if the break happens for a long period then the writers might find themselves in a worse position. The thing that writers should do is try to do something in order to find the rhythm again. In other words they should employ a practice which will unblock the writer’s block.

The Writer's Block bookI never had a solid technique to deal with writer’s block until I came across a book titled ” The Writer’s Block: 786 Ideas to Jump-Start Your Imagination “. This is one amazing book that I came across which helped me reduce a lot of time wasted in the writer’s block phase. One blogger suggested to me that I should have a look at this book.

At first glance, I got interested in the book. It is shaped like a 3×3×3 block and full of ideas to help the mass writer to break the writer’s block. The book is very helpful for anyone who likes to write, and takes it seriously or professionally. The writer Jason Rekulak has put a lot of effort in composing the book. He has actually compiled 786 techniques to overcome the writer’s block.

Most of the examples are taken from experiences of prominent writers. 786 ideas is not something merely small, but it’s rather something very comprehensive. I owe a lot to this book because it has helped me in many situations where I did not have much time in hand to finish writing. I would recommend this to any type of writer, whether a rookie or a pro. It is a must have book in every writer’s shelf.

How my family made me a better person

Happy family on a couchIt is a well-known fact that a man cannot be a real man without a family. Families are made so that it is easier for us to lead our life. Wherever a person goes in life, the teachings learned from families direct that person’s activity to a great extent.

I am very lucky to have a hugely supportive family which has helped me a lot in life to this day. Every success I had in life is due to the contribution of my family members who had supported me and inspired me throughout life.

I have always been open to my parents about everything. They are my best friends. I always share my thoughts and feelings with them. They are very good listeners. They are very eager to know what I have to say. Even when I do not have much to share, they will always ask about my day and work. They are also very good advisors. Whenever I get into a problem or am confused about something, I seek their counsel.

I am very lucky to have such a family. I have seen a lot of people around me who suffer from lack of family communication. A lot of people do not even have a normal family. I cannot imagine how painful it is not to have good family time. Whenever I am stressed about anything I talk to my mom or dad. They know how to make my stresses and worries go away. It’s nothing too complicated. Some basic talks and I feel light inside.

My family contributed a lot to my current being. Before college I was in a dilemma in choosing my major. They talked long and hard with me and found out what I was good at. I am greatly indebted to them for this. Without their counsel I would have never be the successful Accountant that I am now. I just do not have enough words to thank them. So I am writing here in gratitude.
