    First time camping in Hershey

    The first time my two best friends, my twin brother and i went to Hershey high meadow we knew we were going to have a blast. Once we had arrived to the campground we all headed to the front desk to get our key to the rustic cabin where we stayed since we don't like sleeping in tents and can't afford an RV. The employees are so nice and helpful too. There was also a shopping area/ gift shop, and an arcade which was awesome. Now the cabin we stayed in had 1 bed, 1 bunk bed, mini fridge, TV, microwave, air conditioning, heat, fire pit to cook food, and a cabinet to put clothes in. When we drove the car to our cabin it looked pretty small but actually was big inside. Once we unpacked our stuff we all headed down to the swimming pool where we swam for at least 2 hours. the campsite has 2 pools. One big pool and a smaller one for little children. The life guards are well trained and really friendly. my friends and i would play water ball or cannon ball competitions. While swimming we met a family and started talking to them and playing water games with there kids who were nice.
    Once we finished swimming we went to the arcade to play some games for 45 minutes. My favorite game was DDR( dance dance revolution). Once we finished that we went to the store/ gift shop which was next door and got our tickets to Hershey park and candy. The gift shop was so awesome because they sell anything for your tent, RV, etc... Once we finished with that we headed back to our cabin for lunch then we decided to play some sports at the big field which is near the pool and playground. We all played basketball, volleyball, catch with a tennis ball, badminton, and Frisbee.
    Night time is the best because you can start your campfire right next to your cabin( there are 3 types of cabins. Rustic, extended, and deluxe cabin which has a bathroom/shower, kitchen, 1 bed, bunk bed, sofa bed.) I bought myself a grill at the campgrounds gift shop for 20.00 and used the fire pit for Smores then bond fire.
    If anyone likes Hershey park the campground has a shuttle bus that takes you to the park then back to the campground.
    I would definitely recommend this campground because its a great place for children, parents, the elderly, etc..., the employees are so friendly too, its near Hershey park and you will enjoy it there. if not then give it a try. I will be going there for the 3rd time.

    Amish Village

    Not wanting to be in a hurry today we took it easy this morning. We headed out of Philadelphia around 10 and decided we had time to drive through Lancaster to see some of the Amish farms. The kids had a blast at Amish Village. They learned about how the Amish live, work and go to school. We visited a school house and an original 1800s Amish farm house. They also got to sit in one of ...

    ... Temps in the areas we will be riding on Saturday are, again, reaching as high as 100 degrees. 1:04. People have been arriving at the gate and it's beginning to look like I won't be flying alone. 1:29. I'm starting to think my concerns about carry-on size may have been a bit overboard as it seems many of the professional flyers have a good bit of gear. 1:42. On board. Next stop ...

    After months of planning and waiting to take this trip the day has finally arrived! I've been able to whittle down the clothes I need to take into a qualifying size carry-on bag. I still need to swing by the drug store to pick up some travel size anti-perspirant and toothpaste; TSA regulations make it a little more challenging than just grabbing out of the medicine cabinet. Next stop, the ...

    Contemplating The Scenery

    Ah, reveries! I have so many. One of the things I will want to find out when I am in Kaili City is how the local people live their lives there. Already, I have a sense of it. At least in the way the postal system works. That it does show more than a little bit of care in how it gets the job done. A care package I sent out to my contact there was not correctly, or rather, fully addressed. I did not know the postcode then, when I mailed it out. Well, ...
