Sunday, 27 October 2013 0 comments
Pennsylvania is home to 121,770 miles (195,970 km) of roadway, with 39,861 miles (64,150 km) of it owned by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, (PennDOT) making it the fifth largest state highway system in the United States.

You’ll have a lot to see while on Charter Bus PA as the Pennsylvania Turnpike system (America’s first super highway) is 535 miles (861 km) long, with the mainline portion stretching from Ohio to Philadelphia and New Jersey. Driving around can be tiring so, instead of driving the distance on your own, give Cus a call to see if we can find you the charter bus, party bus, coach bus, mini bus, school us or entertainer coaches that is perfect for your trip.

The Allegheny Mountain Tunnel which carries traffic from the Pennsylvania Turnpike through the Allegheny Mountains is the longest of the five tunnels on the Pennsylvania Turnpike carrying interstate 70 and 76 consists of two tunnels that are approximately 6,070 feet (1,850 m) in length and are the longest tunnels still utilized by the turnpike. Our bus drivers know the routes like the back of their hands, just point them in the right direction and you will be well on your way.

Charter Bus PA customers may not know this but, the first tunnel was built in the 1930s at the cost of $2,672,188 while the second tunnel, which was necessary due to increasing traffic was built in the late 1950s at the cost of $8,237,272

Interstate 80, an major east - west route that runs from Ohio to New Jersey at the Delaware Water Gap while Interstate 90 links Ohio and New York through Erie County. Interstate 79 runs north-south from its terminus in Erie through Pittsburgh to West Virginia while Interstate 81 runs from New York through Scranton, Lackawanna County and Harrisburg to Maryland.

Meanwhile, Interstate 476, begins 7 miles (11 km) north of the Delaware border, in Chester, Delaware County and travels 132 miles (212 km) to Clarks Summit, Lackawanna County, where it joins Interstate 81. Just imagine yourself cruising along with your friends and family members, relaxing in the charter, coach, party, or passenger sleeper coaches provided by Charter Bus is simply luxurious.

PA is charming in a very personal and friendly level. The next time you’re traveling by coach with us on the highway south of the main line of the Pennsylvania Turnpike do take a look out of the window and take in the view as the stretch is officially called the "Veterans Memorial Highway", commonly known to by locals as the "Blue Route". Such an unforgettable road trip can last you for a long time to come.

Live your astronaut dreams at Kennedy Space Center

Sunday, 20 October 2013 0 comments
If you have ever dreamed of becoming an astronaut, why not bring that dream to life by visiting Kennedy Space Center in central Florida.

Just a short drive from Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers a unique opportunity for you to tour launch areas, meet a veteran astronaut, see actual rockets, train in a spaceflight simulator, or even view an actual rocket or shuttle launch. It's all part of the amazing adventure that awaits you.

The Shuttle Launch Experience provides an exciting journey that allows you to feel what it's like to launch yourself toward space. Strap yourself in and experience the sights, sounds and sensations of a real Space Shuttle launch.

After entering the heart of Space Shuttle operations for a pre-launch briefing, you'll be guided by veteran Space Shuttle Commander Charlie Bolden as he you step-by-step through the shuttle launch sequence. Brilliant video screens spring to life on shuttle-like robotic arms. Anxious moments arise as atmospheric sound and lighting effects dramatize the moments before your space shuttle launch. Then hold on and enjoy the ride!

You can also travel back in time and history with a visit to the NASA Rocket Garden. Dramatic lighting brings historic NASA rockets back to life, including the Redstone, Atlas and Titan rockets that first put NASA astronauts in space. You can climb aboard Mercury, Gemini and Apollo capsules - and get an idea of the cramped quarters America's astronaut pioneers endured.

Then return to today's space age and climb aboard the International Space Station. This fascinating attraction gives you an up-close glimpse inside the actual facility where NASA prepares the real components of the International Space Station - the largest, most complex structure ever to be placed into orbit.

In an elevated observation room, you'll see the actual processing bay where each Space Station component is checked out, processed and readied for its trip into orbit.

After the observation room, you can enter a full-scale mock-up of the Habitation Module and see how Space Station crew members live, sleep and work.

In Space Shuttle Plaza, you'll find a full-sized NASA Space Shuttle replica - Explorer. See for yourself how astronauts live and work aboard real Space Shuttles. You'll also find other components needed to launch NASA Space Shuttles such as a huge external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters.
Next to the Space Shuttle Explorer is the Launch Status Center, where visitors receive live briefings on NASA's ongoing launch and space flight activity.

On a more somber note, the Space Mirror Memorial, designated as a national memorial by Congress and President George Bush and dedicated in 1991, honors the 24 U.S. astronauts who gave their lives for space exploration.

The names of the fallen astronauts from the Space Shuttle Columbia, the Space Shuttle Challenger and Apollo 1, as well as the astronauts from training and commercial airplane accidents are emblazoned on the monument's 42-1/2-foot-high-by-50-foot-wide black granite surface as if to be projected into the heavens.

Amazing Family Yoga in India

Sunday, 6 October 2013 0 comments
Ever thought about doing yoga with your kids? In addition to family meals and bedtime rituals, more and more families are adding yoga to their daily routines. If you have yet to establish a home practice with your kids, the benefits might surprise you. "Family yoga can become a way of life," says Amy Gabrielle Witmyer, owner of the Sacred Space Yoga and Wellness Center of West Orange, New Jersey, who has been practicing with her husband and their son, Juaquin, since the 9-year-old was in uterus.

In a world where cooking has become a once in a blue moon event and where fast food has dominated weekly meals, gaining weight has become an issue now more than ever. Kids are becoming over weight and obese, just as their parents are gaining weight as well.

Children of today would rather spend their time on the internet, their video games, and watch TV than go outside and play. Because lifestyles have changed over the years, weight gain and weight loss needs have changed too. Here is where amazing yoga may be of help.

The rewards of a family practice are long-lasting, including not only well-documented benefits like weight loss, increased concentration, muscle tone, and better school performance, but also stronger bonds among family members and better social skills in the world at large. If you have a good practice, you can't help but take it off the mat.

Remember though, if you really want family yoga to work for you, you also have to match it up with other important factors such as eating right, living healthy, doing your yoga routines regularly, maintaining positivism and enjoying your time on your mat - your sacred space. That brings up a key question: How can yoga compete against other enticements for children's attention? How do we keep from having to insist our kids practice with us? The answer, veterans agree, is modeling.

Practice yourself. Then yoga becomes part of the furniture for the kids. When the household is studying something deeply, the walls are vibrating with that knowledge.

So whenever people begin to practice yoga, all the people in the household are going to absorb some of that.
Stories, games, partner poses and massage are all likely elements in a family yoga class. Unlike adult classes that may include slow and sleepy sequences, too many props or sweaty aerobics, these classes are child-centered and built for fun.

Variations are given for each pose or activity to accommodate the students in class. For example, parents stand steady in tree pose (vrksasana), while children dance like the wind. Or, parents line up in downward-facing dog (adho mukha svanasana) to make a tunnel for the children to crawl through.

As the concept of Family Yoga gains popularity, it's not unusual for families to complement a family vacation with Yoga classes. What better place to learn and practice these wellness therapies than the land of its origin - India (where it originated more than 5000 years ago)? Yoga and Ayurveda are the most renowned therapies of India that have gained international popularity and repute.

Considering the growing demand of Spiritual Tourism in India and to cater to the specialized needs of discerning Spiritual travellers to India, Travel Spiritual India was established as a Strategic Business Unit of Pioneer Journeys Pvt. Ltd.
