7 Reasons Why You Should Try Hitchhiking

1. Saving Money On Transportation

This was the reason why I first started hitchhiking, traveling on a shoestring and using public transportation don’t go well together. If I can get a flight from Portugal to Germany for 20€ I’m not paying more than that for a boring 200km, three hour bus ride to the next destination.

2. Saving More Money!

This might sound crazy to people who are concerned about the “dangers” of hitchhiking, but during some rides I have been offered food, money, drinks, accommodation and even marijuana and alcohol, usually they are just really into helping me and making sure I enjoy my adventure, some people have also driven off their paths just to drop me off exactly where I wanted them to.

Of course this situations don’t come very often, specially if you are hitchhiking with someone else. Although it feels amazing to be treated in such a nice way by a stranger you should be very grateful just by the fact that they decide to pick you up, so don’t expect anything else from the people who give you a ride.

3. Overcoming Your Fears.

When it comes to hitchhiking anyone who has never done it before tends to have enough misconceptions about it to keep themselves away from doing it unless encouraged by someone else.

The exact same thing happened to me, that’s why I want you to go out there and do it, after a few rides your opinions about hitchhiking will change drastically and once you overcome that fear you will feel more confident and even more determined to overcome other mental barriers that you may have.

Emotions are Contagious

4. Meeting Really Nice People

This is why I love hitchhiking! You will meet lots of different people and have many conversations with complete strangers. You can share your stories and at the same time discover more about the local culture or about someone else’s life, isn’t that great?

Of course not everyone is interested in hearing what you have to say or share with you their lives but countless times I’ve had really indulging conversations and learned much from this people and it also helped me overcome social insecurities.

5. Practising Your New Language

Please! Make sure you learn or at least write down some keywords or phrases from the local language. It’s easy to learn a new language and you can even practise for free with people who give you a ride by trying to introduce yourself, explaining where you want to go and even talk a bit about yourself in the local language.

If you and the person who give you a ride have any language in common it’s always funny to have a quick conversation in the local language, if that’s not the case be creative, talk with gestures or pictures, point at things, make an effort to break the language barrier.

You Are Your Own SuperHero

6. Save The World!

Every time someone picks you up the same amount of CO2 is emitted but more people are getting from point A to point B, this is what I call economizing. Can you imagine if more and more people start hitchhiking? Not only to travel on a budget but to actually do it on a daily basis. There would be less and less pollution, traffic jams and people would trust more on each other.

7. Experience True Freedom And Adventure

Hitchhiking is more than just sticking your thumb up and waiting. It’s the freedom of choosing where and when you want to go and never knowing where and when someone will take you there! It’s embracing the unknown! There are absolutely no certainties when it comes to hitchhiking, you never know what type of person or car will pick you up, how long you will have to wait or where they are going. This is what I call adventure!

When you don’t know what to expect you are living life in the present and experiencing everything in detail, you appreciate more the good things and easily ignore whatever doesn’t suit you.

I have countless good memories from hitchhiking: getting invited for lunch in a hill by the beach, having really funny or interesting conversations, getting rides on cabs for free, pretending to be moroccan on a police checkpoint and many more that are yet to come.

Thank you Lucas for this amazing post, you can find the original article in their website.

Non - Alcoholic Perfume? | OrganicIsBeautiful

Non-Alcoholic Perfume?

Today, on OiB I will discuss the ever increasing debate of non-alcoholic perfumes. There have various requests that have been asking me for the reality behind them. This is why I thought to finally give it a thought for all my readers out there. There have been various queries about non-alcoholic perfumes. Some ask if it is natural and organic while some want to know the benefits or the features it has to offer. Thus, you shall find all the answers now as I have tried and used the perfume myself to give you the reviews and knowledge about it.

So What Is Non-Alcoholic Perfume?

The primary essential of perfumes is the oil concentration with which it is made. This is also what makes the non-alcoholic perfume different than a normal alcoholic perfume. This oil concentration should be more and more in order to have a good perfume. All good and high quality perfumes have 15 to 30% perfume oil in them. Alcohol is mixed with this perfume to make the smell stronger.

There are higher quantities of alcohol in those perfumes that have a low quantity of perfume oil. But then there can be several issues with these alcoholic perfumes. It is here that the advantages or features of non-alcoholic perfumes come by.

Flowers OrganicIsBeautiful

Features of Non-Alcoholic Perfumes

The different benefits of non-alcoholic perfumes also include benefits for the skin which I have witnessed myself. These are all given as follows

  • These perfumes are not too costly
  • These perfumes do not attract to have stronger smell for the first two hours and then vanish through the next hour (as the alcohol evaporates faster). They remain constant
  • These perfumes have lower risk of being prone to develop skin infection or any skin sensitivity
  • The oil of these perfumes can also sometimes help to have a balanced skincare and fragrance as well
  • Non-alcoholic perfumes are more towards the organic and natural side in comparison

Where Did It Come from?

The actual word perfume is a Latin word called per fumus which means ‘through smoke’. Later on the Romans went on to define perfumes even more while the Persians and Arabs also were partners in the same. Today, perfumes are used in different cultures all over the world. The western society uses it in their own style while the eastern side has its own set of fragrances. Not to forget, the Islamic world also appreciates a person who applies non-alcoholic perfume and smells good most of the time, especially on a Friday.

Different Forms of Non-Alcoholic Perfumes

There are many different forms of these non-alcoholic perfumes. They can be made purely with the help of different essential oils that enhance the skin and bring about lots of fragrance as well. One can even combine different types of oils and apply them to act as a perfume. This is because the oil absorbs within the skin and the fragrance is maintained throughout.

For all your non-alcoholic perfume knowledge, I shall let you know that this is a really good option to go for in comparison. Different oils can be used to treat and maintain the skin besides having the fragrance as well. Let me know if you still have any queries, the comment section is all yours.

Is Your Skin Dry or Just Dehydrated? Don’t Know Well? Know It Now!

Happy Wednesday! It’10.20am here, and I am almost counting the hours to the week end!! 😉

We all have love/hate relation with our skin. Too Oily? Too Dry? It can easu drives anyone crazy! Today on OiB, let’s break the ice and start by the basic shall we?

Our skin condition of being dry or being dehydrated.

Are you not sure of what you actually are having? If yes, then this article is a must read because it helped me to find it out for myself as well. When I knew the difference, I could handle it well already! And, flolks, I made it easy for you and collected those differences below.

In order to know the basic difference between both of them, it is important that we know how both conditions rate or develop. Dry skin can be a common problem and might have normal to serious prolonged problems. On the other hand, dehydrated skin is an issue right from the start and can arise from different situations as well. The actual difference lies here that one is a skin type and the other is a skin condition.

Know Your Own Skin Type | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com
Know Your Own Skin Type | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com

A skin type is what anyone is born with. This means anyone can be born with dry skin already which means this is a skin type. On the other hand, dehydrated skin is a skin condition and can happen due to changes and a few factors that have affected the skin to alter it. This also means that while dealing with dehydrated skin can be temporary, dealing with dry skin is constant even though when dehydrated skin is a problem right from the very start.

Dehydrated Skin

  • Dehydrated skin produces a lot of oil
  • It can be tight and dry itself too, besides having flakes
  • Dehydration is a worse condition because it is dry and dehydrated both (dry under, oily above)
  • Dehydrated skin depends upon the weather as well as your hobbies. This includes having a regular sauna, swimming or any other such activity.
  • The oil in dehydrated skin is not consistent as it can be different at different times and conditions.
  • Dehydrated skin condition can happen to anyone independent of their skin type being good, normal or sensitive.
  • Dehydration can also be caused if the wrong products are used for the skin which is why it can happen to anyone using a wrong cream, a wrong beauty care item or even a wrong makeup product. It can also occur by applying something too frequently or using too many products for one thing at the same time too. It can also occur because of lack of water.

Dry skin

  • No oil
  • Is dry and can be loose or tight anything besides not being flaky.
  • Dry skin is a normal condition
  • Dry skin only depends upon the weather and is independent of one’s hobbies whether they are swimming, jumping, stressing etc.
  • The oiliness or dryness is almost consistent all the time.
  • Dry skin belongs to a specific type of skin that one is born with.

The above differences are well enough to distinguish one condition from the other.
