For The Weekenders: Lion King Lodges, Subway Station Parties, Cast Away Escapades…

There are a lot of great places to explore out there.

A lot.

So why limit yourself to your side of the world?

It’s time to get…unconventional.

For The Weekenders: Lion King Lodges, Subway Station Parties, Cast Away Escapades…

I used to be a fan of Lion King (don’t judge), when I was a kid.

The wild life, wide open spaces, and the thought of “no worries” was very appealing at such a tender age.

I watched the movie and enjoyed spending hours of my day playing the video game on Sega with a friend (and by “playing” I mean us impatiently and quietly hoping one of us would kill off our character in hopes of our turn coming around quicker).

Back in the day, this was the shit…also our equivalent of 1080p quality (if you think this is bad, imagine FIFA).

So naturally, when I discovered there was a luxury lodge in Botswana where you could get up close and personal with lions, zebras, and cheetahs, I was very much:

Qorokwe Camp promises to deliver this, and more.

Fun fact: “Qorokwe” means “the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water.”

You can use that to sound interesting, cultured, and suave when you’re convincing your play mate to go with you on the trip.

You’re welcome.

This is the perfect opportunity to get away from all the “busyness” of urban society, while at the same time letting that special someone know that yes, while you may be brilliant at business, money, and knowing how to make more of said money, you’re not just some boring numbers person and you do like to sometimes live dangerously.

Across 62,692 acres there’s more wildlife than you can shake a stick at, inlcuding a lion pride made up of just over a dozen lions, allowing you to step into the Lion King story – but without all the family dysfunction, treachery, and betrayal (hint: don’t invite Uncle Carl this time).

This is a representation of the circle of life, Simba. The circle of life is way more fucked up than you think, little one.

You’ve got two choices for accommodation – a family tent suite with its own pool, or a regular tent suite, not as big, but just as nice. So if you’re the family type, obviously opt for the former…but if you’re here for a sneaky, on-emergency-call-only get together, the latter will do just fine, as you’ll probably spend more time running around the other facilities they have, thanking the architect (and landscape architect) for mixing nature with artistry.

After going for your morning swim and having some breakfast, if you’re feeling adventurous, the camp is far from being in short supply of adventurous things to do.

For the less-adventurous-vegan-mocha-ugg-boot-triple-latte types, there’s bird watching, nature walks, and plonking yourself in a dugout canoe while being…boated around to look at the surrounding wildlife.

Guide, to self: “I am getting damn tired of haulin’ these heavy ass-…” Tourist: “Isn’t that zebra BEAUTIFUL?!?!” Guide: “Uh, YES. Bedazzling, even.”

But for the braver among us, there are night drives. The perfect time to see those “I wear my sunglasses at night” type creatures that normally shy away during daylight hours.

This means it’s also the perfect time for those *rustle in the bush* “EEK! What was that?” *more rustling* “nothing, don’t worry, just…nestle right in here – you’ll be safe” moments.

When you’ve had enough adventuring for the day (or night) you can retire back to your suite to freshen up, grab some food, and hit the on-site bar, before moving onto the lounge to admire the photos you took with your favourite camera of all those wonderful creatures.

If you lost your phone in this area, good luck going back for it.

See where the wild things are, what they are, and how very much the opposite of assumed “shithole” countries they’re in.

If the call of the wild isn’t your thing, and you instead feel like settling for the “safer” (pfft…lame.) containment of the city, then this next one is for you.

Bar hopping can get pretty boring. Boring for you, boring for your friends, boring for your date.

So when your sexy someone slips into the passenger’s seat of your car with a look of “where-are-we-headed-tonight-and-it-better-be-good” you have two options:

  1. Proceed to piss her off more with a look of “I don’t know”.
  2. Ask her what she’d like to do already having a general idea of what her scene is and what she’s into…only to surprise her by saying you’ve decided it’ll be more fun to party in a subway station.

If you went with option 2, now would be a good time to catch her before she hits you with her bag and stomps off…and assure her that no, it’s not the subway station party that involves Four Loko and partying with vagabonds.

It’s this kind.

Far less sketchy, far more artistic, Station1640 in L.A. is the mystical unicorn kind of a place that you can take a date to for an experience of a dance club, art gallery, and bar rolled into one.

I’m not kidding.

The graffiti is literally done by artists – these aren’t your cheap, poorly spelled “fuk u” dick drawing street tags you see the city constantly trying to cover up. You’ll be looking at works of art from people like Obey Giant, David Flores, and King Cre8, to name a few.

This is no place to go sticking gum on the walls.

Refined but nonetheless somewhere you can let your hair down, so to speak (or get her to let hers down), it reminds me a bit of Ageha and those professional male and female pole dancers (professional being a severe understatement).

They’ve got mixologists as opposed to bartenders – and if you know anything about drinking, there is a vast difference between the two. The former is the “say no more fam” while the latter is more “…so you want vodka, is that what you’re saying?” when you ask for a drink that involves setting an ingredient or two on fire.

If you really like the place, you can book it for private hire and invite as many people as it can handle…but just remember you’ve booked it, not bought it, so while you’ve grown quite fond of it no, it’s not yours to keep and you eventually will have to let the regular people have their fun.

This is one time a good thing must sadly, come to an end.

If you like the feeling of running things though, and haven’t satisfied your appetite just yet, I’ve got something bigger for you.

Yes, bigger.

If booking a club isn’t enough for you, you can always just book an island.

Land ahoy.

There are two types of escapades.

One that’s secret and fun, which only you and a select few friends know about.

And the other, that’s considered “shenanigans” and gets leaked to the media (depending on your level of importance – in your case, maybe not so much), turning into a…fiasco.

Either way, both are the type that with Calala Island in Nicaragua, can run along the lines of “what happens in Calala Island, stays in Calala Island”.

And with Carlos. Carlos knows what’s up (but he ain’t no snitch).

It’s so remote you’ll need to charter a flight to Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (In Managua), before (preferably) getting a chopper ride over to the island.

Better bring some friends. Including yourself and that special someone Calala accommodates 8, with 4 beachfront suites and about two rugby teams worth of staff to handle your every need (though I can’t promise they’ll help with your personal life – you’ll need a therapist for that).

Here’s the best part – you can do whatever you want. Everything’s all inclusive.

Literally.

From the food you eat, to the activities you choose to partake in, and the drinks you choose to throw back, it’s all included in the price you’re charged – so go wild.

I mean…I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have a cheat meal or three.

Wing it.

Whatever you want to do, the staff will tailor things according to your wants. This is no cookie cutter holiday.

Get creative (creative – not weird), indulge, and rest in the satisfaction of knowing that you have a little secret that no one can take away from you (given you don’t blab about it on Facebook, genius).

When it comes to discussing other countries, everyone has their own opinion…but please, for the love of all things holy, learn to have your own, too – by checking the pudding for proof.

Don’t just listen to the media.

Don’t just take anyone’s word for what a country is like.

Check it out yourself.

Go explore.

Learn something.

You can listen all you want to what other people have to say about other countries – but don’t just blindly believe it. Technology today has us travel more than 5000+/- miles in just under a half day. There’s no excuse to just sit and listen to what your TV (or your friend who’s never been to their immediate neighbouring country) has to say.

For The Weekenders might be up a little late this week…but hopefully it’ll get you inspired to book your next flight.

Hope everyone’s having a great week.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 77: Travel…

I’m hoping everyone’s week is off to a good start. While I know I skipped For The Weekenders last week, it’ll run as usual this week…but for this episodic musing I’d like to throw some thoughts your way on something directly related to it – travel.

Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 77: Travel…

To Travel Is To Take A Journey Into Yourself Danny Kaye, rego's life quotes, danny kaye quotes, danny kaye, Musings Episode 77 Travel, Rego's Life Musings Episode 77 Travel, Musings Episode 77 Travel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, travel benefits, travel quotes, travelling, holidays, vacations, holiday, vacation, culture, open mind, culture enthusiast, episodic musings

So you’ve been reading the blog for a while now. You’ve learnt about lots of places to go, things to eat, and original things to do.

This time around I’ve really decided to start focusing on travelling abroad more though. Reason being is because I think with the sheer amount of craziness that’s been erupting in politics – xenophobia in particular – that people need to be doing a lot more of this than they currently are.

But a lot more of it with an open mind.

Every time I travel, there’s a certain trend I notice at least once during the trip.

There’s always someone else who is also travelling, but is a complete ass to the people of the country they’re travelling to.

I say this not to rant, but because there’s a certain characteristic that, like I said earlier, each individual that acts like this is missing: an open mind.

When you travel with an open mind, you get to fully experience the culture. You get to taste, feel, breathe, and drink it. It goes beyond hotels and fancy restaurants, gift shops and clothing stores.

Which brings us to the point that there are two types of travellers – the tourist, and the culture enthusiast.

You might want to consider checking if you’re the latter, because you can learn a lot more when you travel if you are.

One’s open minded, one’s not.

What do I mean by open minded though?

Well I find the way most people travel to be rather…boring. Typical. Being a tourists usually goes like this…

You get on a plane. You check into a hotel. You stick to the touristy areas. You buy shit you don’t need. You buy more shit you don’t need. Both of which can actually be purchased at any touristy area in several countries.

You eat at the restaurants that cater to tourist the most.

You make a half assed effort at speaking the language but still really, really prefer English.

You hop on a tour bus.

You hop off a tour bus.

You stick to a guided tour.

……. 😐

Then there’s the culture enthusiast.

You get on a plane. Sure, you check into a hotel but you do a little research, find something that not every tourist and their grandma knows about.

You explore local areas. You spend your money renting a car and checking out more areas.

You look for good restaurants off the beaten path.

You get a relatively decent grasp of the language, enough to at least be mildly conversational, and discourage using English unless absolutely necessary.

You find out what the locals like to do for fun.

You do what the locals do for fun.

You meet a few cool locals while doing what the locals like to do for fun.

You learn new things.

You avoid guided tours and tour buses like the plague.

What’s the difference between the two?

I like to think of the tourist as someone who observes from the outside – like watching a fish through a glass bowl.

Yeah, they’re in a country, they sleep, eat, and spend money in it, but rarely do they ever actually touch the culture. Rarely do they ever relate, or even find something or someone to relate to.

While the culture enthusiast actually feels the culture.

They may not end up befriending everyone in the city or area, but they take a little bit of something away while leaving something behind, in the abstract sense.

There’s a saying:

Engage with people from another country and you’ll come to better understand them.

When you begin to understand them more you begin to connect with them more.

When you begin to connect with them more, you begin to relate to them more.

And when you begin to relate to them more, all those walls, all those mental barriers that people put up, that politicians put up, that the media puts up…will slowly start to come down.

Travelling is more than just a good holiday.

It’s a chance to learn something.

A chance to connect with something outside of your comfort zone.

A chance to connect with people you might never get to connect with in your own space.

And when people start connecting with other people in a positive way, well some pretty epic, pretty significant changes to things, and the way you think, can happen.

Look out for Quote Wednesdays this week.

And as always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: The Last Days of Summer…

With summer coming to a close and September right around the corner, I wanted to make this week’s For The Weekenders special.

I remember when I was a kid growing up in a four season climate, one of the best things about the beginning of fall/autumn was having summer go out with a bang.

So here’s some ideas for those of your that love summer just as much as you do fall, and wanna make sure 2014’s is one to remember. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: The Last Days of Summer…

For The Weekenders The Last Days of Summer, Rego's Life For The Weekenders The Last Days of Summer, For The Weekenders The Last Days of Summer Rego's Life, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, last days of summer, last days of summer ideas, summer activities, celebrate summer ideas, summer ideas, bonfires, road trips, Brazil, vacation, cental america, south america, latin dance, life, rest is not idleness john lubbock rego's life summer quotes, Rest is not idleness and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day listening to the murmur of the water or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time John lubbock

I don’t know about you guys, but nothing brings back awesome memories like a crackling fire, crashing waves, s’mores, and football on the beach like a nice bonfire does.

There really is something special about a good bonfire. Maybe it’s the fact that you’re surrounded by good friends…or maybe it’s the fact that you know it’s the end of something good but the beginning of something better – but bottom line is the warmth – both literally and figuratively – that such an activity brings to the table is beyond compare.

So grab a few beers, maybe a cooler full of some fine items for grilling, don’t forget the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate (or, get some delicious pre-made ones to really make it special), and sit down with a few close friends, while you all burn the night away with awesome stories and swap some of your favorite memories of this years summer.

If you don’t live by the beach or just aren’t too talented at creating a controlled fire, no worries, there’s always alternatives.

Next one up on the list is for those of you that are huge car enthusiasts.

What’s better than driving down endless miles of road into the sunset with the warm hum of the engine and cool summer breeze in your hair?

Doing it with your S.O. or maybe one or two of your best friends.

We’ve all at some point wanted an endless summer. Make it feel like one by planning an unforgettable road trip with that special someone of yours or a few close buddies. If you’ve got a ride you’re happy enough to call your pride and joy take it out on the open road and really open up that engine – or if you don’t feel like abusing your car with that many miles rent a classic and REALLY make it that road trip you’ll never forget.

The main thing here is to get out there and explore. Have a bucket list to check off – or no bucket list at all. Get creative. Get caught up in the moment. Stop off at a drive in movie. Get lost…only to find yourself again.

Wherever you go, make sure it’s somewhere that’s special to YOU. Grab a few refreshments, crank up the tunes, wear your favorite t-shirt/polo like it’s going out of style, make good use of those aviators….

and like I once read off of a piece of clothing by Volcom (I kid you not) – Leave only footprints. Take only photos.

Speaking of dying sunsets, if you want an epic adventure and *really* want to get the most out of this summer, don’t limit yourself to keeping it local. This one’s more tailored for those of you that live on the west coast. You know what I’m talking about – and no, it isn’t Cabo.

Go all out and check out bits of Central or South America – two countries that have the most gorgeous scenery around, endless sunsets, insane local food, with more tequila and Latin dance culture than you can shake a stick at.

If I had to pick, I highly suggest you check out Brazil. The culture is awesome….the food is awesome…and the music? Perfect.

This idea’s flexible enough to experience with friends, your S.O., or even by yourself.

I hope everyone’s had a great summer, and that autumn is just as memorable.

As always…

Stay awesome.
