I am not talking about one of those pop up trailers that is about the size of a tent when you get done. This is a really big trailer that is about the size of a mobile home. I had to get a fifth wheel trailer hitch put on my truck and in fact it I did not have a nice truck it would be too much trailer for me to get up a hill. This thing already has a Directv in fact, although it is missing the little thing that makes it work. It is almost luxurious compared to the way that I was camping out. Read the rest of this entry »

While scouring the inventory of travel mug companies, one is likely to stumble upon a curious product: the Self Heating Travel Mug. Now we know the product exists because it is listed on many different websites and has been sold to people around the world. But does it actually work? After personally testing the product, the answer is: Yes they do work! The most popular self heating travel mug is the 16 ounce Executive Stainless Steel Travel Mug with Heat Adapter. The heat adapter plugs into the plugs into any car lighter on one end and then into a socket at the bottom of the travel mug handle. The travel mug quickly heats up the coffee while keeping the outer shell of the travel mug cool enough to touch.

This product is of particular interest since the travel mug industry has been searching for new ways to keep coffee warm. They switch from mainly plastic travel mugs to stainless steel to increase insulation and created screw tops for tighter seals. But this new adaptation opens the door for greater things to come in the travel mug industry. With all the advances seen in the travel mug industry from changing material to advanced features, this is by far the biggest technological breakthrough. Most cars have cigarette lighters which can be used to plug in electronics, since these lighters naturally product heat it makes them even more efficient for this heating task. Also most people carry travel mugs with them on their commute to work which allows them to keep their coffee warm from home-to-work even if the commute is very long.

So how exactly does it work? Well the travel mug comes with a heat adapter that is detachable making the travel mug easier to carry. The heat adapter emits twelve volts of energy to produce the heat in the travel mug which is just enough to keep coffee warm but not too much to make it boil. To prevent the entire travel mug from getting too hot, the mug has double insulation and heats up the inner shell. This allows users to freely handle the travel mug without burning themselves. Beyond the advanced technology in these travel mugs is standard travel mug tech like sturdy handles, spill proof sip top and a base that is sturdy and small enough to fit in a cup holder.

Visiting a foreign country someday is something that is on a lot of people’s to-do list. Did you know that you don’t have to simply take a vacation to visit a foreign country? There are many ways that you can work or serve while you are visiting a foreign country and learning about its culture. One way that you can do this is by completing a London TEFL course and getting hired as a teacher of English in another country. Granted, this means spending more than a few days or even a couple of weeks in a foreign country, but that’s part of what makes it such an adventure.

TEFL stands for teaching English as a foreign language, and this adventure should not necessarily be taken lightly. A good, accredited London TEFL course will probably involve several hours of classroom teaching, up to 100 hours of online coursework, and basically working through some teaching experience. You don’t need to have experience as a teacher to complete a TEFL course, though. Thus, if teaching is something that has always interested you, then taking a TEFL course could get you on the road to a great teaching experience!

You don’t have to start your adventure in a foreign country right away if you are still unsure about committing to a TEFL position. What’s more, you shouldn’t even have to travel very far to participate in a London TEFL course. A lot of the coursework can be completed online, and the in-classroom part may be available in other areas besides just London. By carefully selecting which course you want to participate in, you might not have to travel very far at all. There are courses offered in Manchester, Oxford, Birmingham, and many other places besides just London.
