The search for cheap housing with comfortable conditions was the first rebus, which, fortunately, we managed to solve positively.
Positive, because we didn’t have any special requirements except for the low rental price per month) The rental price of our apartment is 8,000 baht per month. The apartment consists of two rooms, a bath, a kitchen (very small), a micro-balcony, all utensils and appliances (except for a washing machine, but at the bottom of our house there is a laundry and washing 5 kg of laundry costs 20 baht, a portion of the powder for washing is paid here – 9 baht). Here in the washing room in the basement there is a vending machine for the sale of drinking water, the cost of one liter is 1 baht (in the store 1 liter – 14 baht).
A picture to attract attention, not our mansions))) The goal of minimizing housing costs was caused not just by rednecking, but by the desire not to overpay for secondary in importance. The fact is that we initially planned to travel a lot, which means it’s not enough to live directly in the apartment itself. Continue reading
Vacation is a special time of fun and carefree. In search of positive emotions and vivid impressions, many go to where they are guaranteed to get both one and the other, and even a little more. And, perhaps, one of the most recognized and famous centers where various entertainments are concentrated, where busy days are replaced by brilliant evenings and fascinating nights, where the real holiday of life is firmly established is Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Attractions
Of course, the most famous Las Vegas entertainments were, are and still are gambling. Countless casinos – one more beautiful than another – invite tourists into their chic gaming halls. Fans of hunting for luck spend days and nights here, hoping to wreck a large sum of money. Others – not so gambling vacationers – spend 10-20 dollars specially prepared for these purposes in slot machines, paying tribute to the tradition and the city that lives and thrives thanks to gambling establishments.

I have long dreamed of visiting the state of Florida. The advertised Miami somehow frightened, but, at first glance, the inconspicuous Jacksonville was exactly the opposite – it attracted. Especially if there lives a person very close to the heart.
Visit Jacks (as the locals call him) fell in May 2017. I just flew from Kiev to a conference in New York, and after it I decided to drop in for a three-day visit to a close friend. Frankly, May fits perfectly. Firstly, ticket prices are not so high, since the tourist season has not yet begun. For comparison: the flight from Kiev to Jacksonville and back cost me $ 780. If you buy a ticket for July, then the price will be at least $ 900. Secondly, in May there are not many tourists, the beaches are half empty. Thirdly, spring is not so hot. The sun in Florida is already painfully frying. I can hardly stand the heat, so I do not regret that I flew in May. It is also known that in the summer and especially in the fall in Jacks the rainy season begins, it often floods so that it is impossible to get to work. Hurricanes also come from time to time. It is noteworthy that in Jack is not as hot as in Miami, although there are also subtropics and palm trees at every turn. Continue reading
It just so happened that I teach sociology at the university. Once I found on the site of scientific conferences one sociological, held in the town of Madison, New Jersey, in May 2017. And she decided to fly. A visa at the US Embassy issued just for participating in a scientific event. I note that for a scientist, any opportunity to travel outside the country is a vacation: new people, contacts, a new atmosphere.
I think that May is a pretty good time of the year for conferences. It was plus 15-16, it rained. I had to spend two days in trousers, a sweater with long sleeves and a light jacket. Even take an umbrella with you. But this is better than snow, because I had to go by taxi, especially in the evening.
I had to fly to New York. Departure from Kiev at 5.45 to Amsterdam, then almost 8 hours from Holland. In New York, she was at 13:00 US time, or at 20:00 Ukrainian time. Total 14 hours of summer and three hours by bus from Zhytomyr to the airport of Boryspil near Kiev. In America, it so happened that many universities are located in small towns. Continue reading
It just so happened that in April 2017 I was granted a visa to America for 10 years, so in July I decided to visit this wonderful country again. She rested in the state of Florida for only a week – from July 22 to 30, in Jacksonville, along with her fiancé and his younger brother. It can be said, it was a family vacation, since his brother is only 14 years old. Nevertheless, on July 23, we decided three to go to the city of Orlando and visit the world famous SeaWorld theme park (“Sea World”).
Let’s just say: July 2017 in the States turned out to be very hot and stuffy. Earlier I was there only in May. In the spring I breathed much easier, it was calm, without precipitation, but I did not suffocate. In July, there was just some terrible frying pan. Just went out into the street – and you want to go back to the room where the air conditioners work around the clock, from which sometimes an unpleasant lump appears in the throat. Five minutes in the yard – and sweat is already covering your body, involuntarily looking for a napkin – it doesn’t matter, wet or ordinary. All this stuffiness with no less than +32 … + 33 was accompanied by torrential rains and showers, which came from somewhere and also disappeared in no time. Continue reading
