Who would have thought that what type of computer we use will pre-determine the type of travel accomodations that we likely purchase online. Just recently, Orbitz find out that Mac computer users tend to buy more expensive hotels or room accomodations, and are more likely to avail room upgrades compare to PC users. Depending on what type of computer you use to purchase your hotel accomodations online at Orbitz will possibly be a determining factor in the near future on which hotels will be displayed in your computer monitor in the recommendation lists of hotels. When these latest data findings will be intergrated into the Orbitz online booking system, then Mac computer users may possibly see 5-star hotels and more expensive nightly rate recommendations, while PC users will most likely see recommendations of cheaper priced hotels.
Here is a video about this latest findings:
Here is a video how Orbitz may possibly utilized this latest data statistic that they gathered when it will be implemented in the search result querries while purchasing hotels at their site:
People have mixed reactions about this announcement. Some if not most of us would probably prefer to get the same lists of recommendations regardless of what type of computer we are using. What about you, how do you feel about this? If you are using Mac computer how do you feel about the fact that you will be getting pricier hotel recommendations simply because you are using a Mac computer? Do you feel that this personalized recommendation basing on what type of computer you are using will serve beneficial to you? Feel free to comment..

Who's going to Disney World in Florida (FL)? Do you know that if you stay in most of the Disney World resorts that they actually have jogging trails? This is great news for all the morning joggers and walkers out there because now you dont have to leave your favorite morning routine behind while on vacation just because you are on vacation! Now you can continue doing what you love to do everyday, jogging and/or walking while on vacation, not to mention the exciting trails and new sceneries that you can explore while you do your run and walk.
Most of the Disney World resorts have jogging trails, so when you get to your booked resort, you need to go to the front desk of the resort you will be staying and ask for more information and possible maps of the jogging trails of that particular resort.
Here is a quick tour of what to expect in the jogging trails in Disney World:
We were in Disney World several years ago but we stayed in a hotel outside of the resort. Having to deal with car traffic to get to the park was not very fun at all, I would rather spend the time to travel to get to the park in a more enjoyable way like jogging or walking within the resort vicinity.

Cars Land In Disney California Adventure

In the west coast of the United States, there is no better way to enjoy the view of the pacific ocean than driving through the stretch of Hwy 1 in northern California. Although Hwy 1 stretches from southern California in San Diego CA all the way to northern California and ends at Hwy 101 intersection, we will be cover primarily on the northern side of CA for this road trip, particulary in the Bodega Bay area (for this article) since there are plenty of photographs to share and it will be too much to put them all in one web page, thats how much there is to see in Hwy 1 alone! If you plan to do a road trip there anytime soon, you need to make sure that the fog is almost or fully lifted so that you can safely drive in the mostly one-lane roads and inorder for you to fully maximize your visit and be able to view of the pacific ocean fully with no haze. Timing is everything especially in the Bay Area since it is common to have foggy days out there.
Bodega Bay California is located south of San Francisco. To drive to Bodega Bay coming from San Francisco the route will be in Hwy 1 towards Forts Bragg CA or heading towards north in Oregon State direction. Once you arrive in Bodega Bay, its pretty easy to tell that you are there because you can see the bay from the road and there are some business like restaurants and bars that you can pull over to have a nice meal as well as be able to enjoy the view of the bay. We stopped by at Lucas Wharf to enjoy the bay and took some shots of the bay (above).
