I don't have much spare time so it's important to me that my gym workouts get the best outcome in the shortest time. I have done a lot of research into the more efficient gym routines and have been doing some comparisons on how effectively each routine builds muscle, burns calories and improves my blood pressure. This blog is my way of keeping a track of the different routines I have tried and showing how everybody responds differently to different workout regimes. I hope it will be useful for other people trying to get maximum effect in the minimum time.
The best way to tour Australia is via a caravan. Greyhounds and organized tours are great, but if you really want to see what the area has to offer, you're best to do so on your own time in the comfort of a caravan. That way you can rest when you want, sleep where you want and stop for a snack wherever you are! A real Aussie road trip will undoubtedly give you a much more satisfying experience than other options like organized tour buses. The question then becomes, 'should I buy or hire' a caravan.
This is an ideal option if your trip is going to be relatively short, as in just a couple of weeks. There are plenty of places to rent caravans around the country and they are very cost effective. One advantage to hiring a caravan is that all of your supplies are included, such as dishes, pots, pans, linens, etc.
Another huge advantage is that if the caravan breaks down a representative from the hire company will help you, regardless of where you are or what time of the day/night it is. Whether it's a flat tire or more serious issues, you can have peace of mind driving across the country.
A disadvantage of renting is that they are quite expensive, and if you're going to tour longer than a couple of weeks, costs can skyrocket quickly. There may be limits put on your caravan as well, such as how far you can travel. You may be capped at a certain amount of km, and then pay for every km above and beyond that.
Many people check out caravan sales when they tour, particularly if they are going to be more than two or three weeks. If you buy used, there are usually good deals to be found, and the purchase process is fairly simple. They can have you in your new caravan in just a few days.
Having your own caravan means that there are no limits on where or how long you can travel. If you buy one that is in good condition, you will only have to worry about changing a tire or two, and changing the oil.
Keep in mind that you will have to purchase insurance for your own caravan, so don't forget to include that in your total cost when comparing renting vs. buying. Whichever option you decide on, don't forget your camera to take pictures along the way!Share
