The Bahamas is known as a party paradise and there is no doubt that most of the islands are dealing with some sort of party fever. One of the consequences of this is that more and more people are turning to innovation and technology to make their way through life with a minimal of effort. This trend of opting for alternatives has opened up new opportunities all over the place: cabs, boats and even flying.
Working in tourism in the Bahamas I have seen the demand for services like helicopter tours and it is no wonder why since most of the islands are starved of good viable tourism infrastructure. Tourism is a priceless commodity and severe shortage of affordable services has previously caused businesses to shut down. But since the skies have opened up we are now seeing a handful of active and future tourists making use of these innovative services.
What is particularly encouraging is that the number of tourists who are choosing these services are a core part of the local community. Many of these small scale operators are related to the locals and they are able to grasp easily at a small scale. For example, if the local fisherman is able to convince his colleagues to carry out a service, it will be able to benefit both of them simultaneously.
This is a shift from the past where tourism and worthwhile activity meant coming and going to distant cities and towns. Today, local people are getting themselves out into the massive expanses of nature, using local tools and methods. This is a core element of local economic activity and in turn it supports local jobs.
Through this lens, small scale local competitors are helping each other by shifting their focus from “building” to “transitioning” – from using traditional methods to newest technologies. This creates an opportunity for the local village leader to bring his skills and efficiently teach his people from his village about new technologies such as GPS geocaching.
Around the globe, geocaching is fast becoming a passion for people young and old. It is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and explore some of the most beautiful parts of nature. There are thousands of geocaches stored away in people’s attics and homes just waiting to be found. Keeping this activity local will help promote these hidden treasures.
Geocaching a fun activity for families and friends. Kids love it! While it is great fun for adults, it is vital that parents have a hand in Trying to find these treasures as well. Geocaching a great way to learn about nature and the environment. It is Easy, Fun, and Local.
It is a great opportunity that the Lake Taupo region in New Zealand has offer geocaching activities during the winter months. Much of the lake is surrounded by snow now, however, rain and sun can still paralyze a person. The sun can also cause trouble for nearby campers who are just getting ready to have a camp out.
Lake Taupo, although surrounded by snow, is a wonderful place to go geocaching. Swimming, boating, hiking, and simple boat fishing can create memories that will last a lifetime. Many of these activities seem simple but are because of the challenge and the fun that is involved.
There are so many activities that one can do in this geocaching community. One person or a small group can compete to see who can locate the most objects. With the use of a GPS unit, timing is not as big of a problem as it is in smaller caches. Many of the old crawl maps of New Zealand can still be used for the location field and can also be Fitted to a GPS unit.
Taupo is a place that is rich in tradition. It is a place to leave footprints and stay in harmony with nature. Breathe in the fresh air and feel the life around you.
The most valuable form of recreation that a person can have is time. There is no such thing as leisure time. We always need to live our lives to the fullest. With this attitude of ours, we can lose weight and stay healthy as a result.
