    thank you for the great post,
    flying 4 hours and more can be very boring and those seats always feel kind of uncomfortable.
    I will definitely try those breathing positions.

    Some good tips here on how to tackle the muscle aching during long flights. I have to fly quite regularly long hauls (+3 hours) and when I arrive at the ground again, it is always awkward to move a lot again. My personal tactic is actually wlaking up and down a few times, going to the toilet or something. Just to stretch the legs. Also do I drink a lot (water) when flying; this is in general good for your body and it helps your body dealing with the simulated pressure it is experiencing.
    The Neck Rolls a lot of people already do, at the office, in the car, in front of the television or yes… at a flight. But I will have to try the ‘Padadhirasana’ next time; it sounds intriguing and worth a try. Oh, and ‘Sukhasana’? Wish I had the space for that…

If you’re looking for a getaway that offers more than just leisure; you might want to consider volunteering while on your holidays. Or better yet, volunteer so that you’ll have a good holiday – for free.

Volunteering during vacations is one of the fastest growing travel packages. This type of package is offered by hotels and by non-profit organizations. From local tours in the south to international travel to Africa or in Thailand, tourists can always find a package with a mission that’s close to their heart. It’s just a matter of finding it.

US based hotels are offering this type of package to tourists. There are also times wherein they invite their loyal guests to their hotels for volunteer travels for free. Hotels are usually offering volunteer trips related to the environment. If there’s a nearby chain in the area, the hotel will most likely offer the tour wit accommodation for free.

Non-profit organizations are also offering volunteering experience for a few days. Aside from local sites, they also have tie-ups to different international organizations which enable them to offer this type of experience to other countries.

If you’re being asked for a fee to volunteer, never hesitate to ask how much of the fee will go directly to the community. Sometimes organizations will just extract money from the volunteers and keep it for profit instead of giving it to the community. To be safe, work with well known non-profit organizations so that you can give back to the community without being ripped-off.
