When we traveled to Mongolia I have experienced to ride a camel and horses it was a little bit scary at first but later on I have enjoyed it because actually it was quite comfortable. The camel or horse wouldn’t do anything scary unless you create some noises or something that could irritate them.
The only disadvantages is being in a saddle without proper riding clothes like breeches or jodhpurs. According to what I have learned this type of clothes can ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment while riding a horse as they are stretchable so you won’t feel any discomfort while on a saddle. On buying breeches you have to make sure that you are going to buy the correct size, most of them are sold by clothing size or waist measurement so you better know which one will suit you. Breeches also vary in color, fabric and style and like most other things they range in price depending on the fabric used and quality of the product, so you should buy according to your budget.

Shopping online is one of the things I enjoyed, it is therapeutic for me. Almost two weeks ago I shopped for several memory storage such as micro sd cards and flash drives, they were on a sale so I grab the opportunity to buy them. If I were going to buy memory storage here in our island it will cost more, maybe twice the sale price. The flash drives are for my mother, she immediately requested me to order 8G and 16G for her when I told her they were on sale. They download a lot of drama series episodes online and they need USB drive so they could watch it in the television which has a bigger screen and resolution.
When I shopped online, I always make sure to pay in cash on delivery to avoid hassle of losing the items while they are on delivery. The micro sd cards I have bought are for a tablet and possibly a phone, if my resources permit me. I have ordered 16G and 32G respectively. My phone is already sluggish, the wifi button doesn’t work most of the time I have to press and restart it many times before the wifi could be enabled. Maybe because I dropped it many times or it was already old since I bought it as second hand in South Korea two years ago. I have brought it in a shop to have it fix but just after few days it was not working again. With this, I have also decided to order a tablet for affordable amount.
Buying gifts for the blind elderly is quite a challenge since they cannot instantly relate and appreciate the physical form of the items given to them. The giver of the gift must consider things such as the preference, interests, safety, and lifestyle concerns of the blind recipient. Although challenging, understanding the need and limitations of a blind person can guide you in choosing the gifts that would make her/him happy and comfortable.
Handicapped or disabled persons are in an unfortunate situation but this does not mean that it is the end of the world for them. One major concern of the blind is their general health. Who would take good care of them, prepare their food, bathe them, and guide them in their situation. Issues and questions on Senior Transitions from the usual routine to a totally different way of life can be very drastic and sometimes hard to cope.
Family members should be able to sense this stage to help the disabled elderly back to its normal life again. The person who is taking care of the blind elderly must be able to understand the situation to give the appropriate love, care, and attention especially on his/her health. Treating them like a normal and capable individual will make the disabled person feel adept.
Although amenable with their situation, it is still best to make the elderly feel appreciated and loved by celebrating special moments with them and showering simple but memorable gifts on their important day. Helping sightless elderly live in the light and live life to the fullest is such a challenging but noble act especially if you are doing it to the person that is dear to you.
