I Need A Vacation

Travel SafeNo, really, I really do need a vacation. It has been quite some time since I last went on a vacation. Since my kids are still considered a toddler, I decided not to go on a vacation, at least not until my kids is big enough to leave on a minimal supervision.

But I might have to reconsider though. Perhaps we can still go to a vacation, provided that the destination is not very far from where we live. That way we can keep the hassle to a minimum since we won’t need to take a lot of stuff with us.

When we’re standing or walking on a dry surface, friction helps us keep our balance. But when we’re standing on a wet surface with little friction, it is getting very hard to do so, especially if the surface is also covered in soap or other cleaning agent which makes the surface very slippery.

That is actually quite dangerous, especially to elderly people whose balance and reflexes is not as good as we are. Read the rest of this entry »
