Baja Real Estate Online

A friend, who has expanded his property holdings to foreign countries, asked me if I could suggest to him something more exciting than properties in Australia and New Zealand. Well, I have been to a couple of property fairs recently and have seen Bali and baja real estate too.

While I didn’t pay attention to such offers because I didn’t have any capital to invest in foreign countries, I found this website,, with marketing and listing services of Baja properties which will be useful to my friend who is looking for something more exciting. I think Baja real estate would offer him what he is looking for.

I hope that I too can one day own a property in Baja. It would be great if I could own a luxurious holiday condominium in Baja where I could totally rest and relax without worrying about anything.

Play Around in Memphis

This is a sponsored guest post written by Memphis Travel on behalf of Memphis CVB. Post powered by Sponzai.

More than just the home of the blues and barbeque, Memphis gives you plenty of ways to play around, with fun things to do no matter who you are or what you like. Of course, if you’re into Elvis, rock-and-roll and mouth-watering ribs, you’ve got to check out Graceland, Sun Studios, and the Rendezvous. But Memphis has much more to offer than this holy trinity of southern culture, with enough to see, do and eat to make it the perfect location for your next long weekend getaway. 
    The families out there (or the wild at heart) should be sure to check out the Memphis Zoo, one of only four U.S. zoos with giant pandas. Recently ranked the #1 zoo in the U.S. by, the Memphis Zoo lets you get up close and personal with the animal kingdom. And with the recent addition the Northwest Passage, home to Polar bears in a see-through underwater exhibit, and the zoo’s newest section, Teton Trek, kids and adults alike are certain to have a blast.
    Don’t let your midtown experience stop at the zoo; the Cooper-Young and Overton Square neighborhoods are just down the street. Ask a local Memphian where to find a tasty bite to eat, great local music and ice cold beer, and they will probably direct you here. Speaking of beer … the environmentally conscious visitor can enjoy a locally brewed beer by Ghost River Brewing or walk through the natural landscape and educational facilities at the Lichterman Nature Center.
    Memphis has museums for just about everything. From the Civil Rights Museum, Cotton Museum and Fire Museum in downtown to the Brooks Museum, Children’s Museum of Memphis and the Pink Palace Museum further east, the number of places to have fun while you learn are as bountiful as the barbeque restaurants. Families, friends, sports fans, history buffs, self-proclaimed food critics – Memphis has everything you need to keep everyone happy.
     So when you visit Memphis, stay a few extra days. Even the locals don’t run out of things to do. And to make it easy, is launching a new travel guide to help you plan your next vacation. Simply choose from a list of interests and you’ll be given a sample itinerary with lots of great ideas. You can also register for a chance to win one of twelve trip packages that include tours, gift certificates to Memphis’ favorite restaurants, hotel stays and more. Go to to get started.

Beautiful Costa Rica Holiday Home

A friend told me of his recent trip to Costa Rica. It was a work trip but he loves the place so much, he is thinking of buying a house in the beach town of Tamarindo. I have not checked out Tamarindo Real Estate yet but according to my friend, he could easily spend his retirement there because it is so peaceful and serene.

There’s no denying that! I used to have a pen-pal from Costa Rice who sent me plenty of photos of her local holidays. Well, when one lives in such a beautiful place, there is no need to take international vacations at all!

I don’t know if my friend will be able to turn his dream into reality but luckily, with so much information online, he could do a thorough research first before making his decision.

Yahoo! Travel Magazine Lists Top Ten Travel Destinations

The German language of Yahoo! Travel Magazine has listed the top ten travel destinations and Malaysia is one of the countries being listed alongside seriously affordable countries like Thailand, India and Sri Lanka in Asia. Langkawi received special mention in the article thanks to its sandy beaches, palm trees and coral reefs. Other countries that make up the top ten list are Mexico, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt and Hungary.

Although the Ringgit has been strengthening lately, the Euro is still many times stronger than it. While we know that most holidaymakers look for a beautiful country that they would enjoy traveling in and at the same time as affordable as possible so as to stretch their holiday budget to the max, it is surprising that the Government has been urging hotels to raise their room rates because they are “too cheap”!

If these hotels were to heed this advice, I don’t think holidaymakers will find Malaysia as affordable as it used to be anymore!

Relaxing Family Vacation

A friend told me that she is looking for a different kind of vacation this summer. She has always choose “shopping” holidays but suddenly realized that she is spending too much money just buying, buying and buying and needs to put a stop to it.

I would like to suggest she tries out fishing pelican lake. I know her husband loves to fish and does it almost every weekend. She many not like fishing but it will certainly provide her with a different vacation than the types that she has gotten used to previously.

Island View Resort offers a very picturesque view over the lake which I am sure she would enjoy. I haven’t been there myself but wouldn’t mind holidaying there to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

There are quite a few minnesota fishing resorts and if she wants, I could even help her with her research on northern mn cabin rentals. In any case, I hope that one day, I would be able to go on a relaxing vacation like this even though I don’t fish! Still, it would be fun!

Romantic Vacation On The Cards

My friend, Stevie, told me that he is planning a romantic vacation. It’s going to be like a honeymoon but since they have registered their marriage for some time already, it just doesn’t feel right calling it a honeymoon!

After much research on the internet, Stevie has decided on a romantic vacation riviera maya in Mexico! He said that it is going to be a surprise for his wife but he is so excited that he just has to share the good news with someone.

This is indeed a great decision. I have heard so much of the romantic beaches of Riviera Maya that if I were to get married, I would want to spend my honeymoon there. It would be even better to get married there! That would be awesome, wouldn’t it?

Looking For The Ultimate Romantic Vacation

Steve, an old friend, will be getting married at the end of May. The poor guy had to postpone his wedding two times since last year because of deaths in the family. He said that he is tired of preparing for his wedding for the third time and would prefer to just get away for a holiday wedding where no guests are allowed. I certainly can understand his frustration.

I suggested to Steve that a romantic cancun vacation would be very suitable for him. It could be a dream wedding away from home without the couple having to get stressed over yet another round of wedding preparation.

Steve likes the idea a lot but it will take some convincing before the elders would allow them to marry without their presence but I think they can always hold a small wedding reception for the family later, when they have returned from their holiday wedding.
