The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-02-17T16:01:52Z Panama Relocation Tours Explains Three Reasons Why Australians Move To Panama 2017-02-17T16:01:52Z panama-relocation-tours-explains-three-reasons-why-australians-move-to-panama A leading Panama Relocation Tour company that has launched a new FREE 8-Part Series, which provides information on Living and Retiring In Panama has launched a campaign to make people aware of three good reasons why more Australians are moving to Panama. Panama Relocation Tours, who provide all-inclusive tours of Panama (https://panamarelocationtours.com/tours) has witnessed an increase in the number of Australians looking for a new exciting life in the popular country located in the continent of Central America.   Australia is fast becoming one of the most expensive countries in the world to live with food prices increasing, property prices increasing and the overall cost of living increasing while wages are not following suit. That has resulted in more young people, families, and retirees looking to move to a country that offers them a better and more cost effective way of life.     Jackie Lange, the owner of Panama Relocation Tours, explained: “Many people think of Panama as a place where retirees move to for a better way of life, but it’s not just retirees who move to Panama. People of all ages move to Panama for new opportunities, lower property prices, and a better lifestyle.”   There are many reasons to move to Panama according to Jackie Lange, but three good reasons include:     Low Crime Rate: - Crime is increasing around the world, but one of the main things people who move to Panama mention is the low crime rate. While other countries have a serious problem with Crime including the UK, Spain, and the USA, Panama has introduced measures to tackle crime to allow people to feel safe and secure.     Thriving Economy: - Panama has a thriving economy which means there are lots of opportunities available for young people looking for work or looking to start their own business.   Low Cost Of Living: - The cost of living in Panama is much lower than Australia and is much lower than most of the world. It allows people to enjoy life more for a lot less.     There are many other good reasons to consider a move to Panama which includes the weather, lower property prices, and the great healthcare.

According to Panama Relocation Tours, Inc., Panama, can offer retirees everything they need. Panama has become very attractive to retirees for the comfortable way of life it offers. When people go to visit Panama on one of the Panama Relocation Tours, they are shocked at how developed the country is. A lot of people are not aware of how modern Panama is with its cluster of skyscrapers and how much cheaper it is to live. The country, which is fast becoming the number one place to retire to, allows retirees to have a better way of life for less. With all the luxuries and comforts available, including cheaper property prices, lower transport prices, and eating out for less, it's not surprising why so many people including retirees and young people move to Panama. There is so much to do in Panama, and with lower priced entertainment including theatres and jazz clubs; retirees can do so much more for a lot less. Real estate in Panama is much more affordable than the UK and the U.S, giving retirees many options on the type of property they would like to live in. That includes living in a high-rise modern apartment, or a condo in a beachfront community. The low property prices allow people to live in a property they have always dreamt of instead of living in a property they could only afford. The health care in Panama is another more affordable service than the U.S. With modern hospitals and many doctors U.S trained, and not to mention lower priced prescription drugs; the Panama health service really does stand out. Jackie Lange for Panama Relocation Tours Inc. said: "Panama is such a wonderful country, and with its low cost of living and a great ex-pat community, it has become one of the most enjoyable countries to retire to." Panama Relocation Tours Inc., offers a tour of Panama once a month. The tour is a six-day all-inclusive tour and allows people to see the real Panama. In addition, tour guests have the opportunity to meet with numerous expats at lunch and dinner during the 6-Day all-inclusive tour.

Bilingual children also possess enhanced cognitive flexibility and a broader world view. Learning a second language should not solely be seen as an academic pursuit. As a matter of fact, learning a second language can be a very enjoyable extracurricular activities for children that improve their experiences and creativity. For that reason, children who are not interested in learning a second language for academic reasons can attend private classes to learn useful foreign language skills. Learning through virtual classrooms is a plus for saving time on commuting and finding a language school near you. Mastering a foreign language that greatly differs from one’s first language can only be achieved through personal coaching by a professional language teacher. Some studies on second language acquisition show that children successfully acquire a foreign language when the factor of a personal contact is present; something that is missing when children learn from recordings or language apps alone. Learning direct from a native-speaker also has the added advantage of imparting important cross-cultural skills - something that can be experienced only through meaningful interactions with people from that culture in an extended period of time. Although European languages have remained to be popular choices for Australian children wanting to learn foreign languages, increasing number of parents have seen the value in learning Asian languages. This is indeed a smart choice to equip our children with a competitive advantage for their future. Understanding the language learning needs of children in Australia, Asian Language School have created language programs in Chinese and Japanese for students age six to seventeen years old. Curriculum is divided for primary school children and secondary school children. The program for children age six to eleven teaches Japanese for three years and Chinese for four years from term one to term four, providing these young learners with year round exposure to the second language and clear learning objectives. Meanwhile, the program for teenage children are more flexible whereby students can enrol in any level throughout the terms. The language programs for teens are created to enable students to achieve fluency at the completion of their study, including speaking, listening, reading and writing. Classes are taught by native-speaker teachers who are long-term Australian residents and are familiar with Australian culture. The school also enables parents to join the first few classes to accompany their children learning. Tuition fees are affordable at around $200 per term. Children learn in a virtual classroom with two to three other students under the guidance of a teacher. There are options to learn either once a week or twice a week.

It may be that extra special items like a Swiss watch or MacBook require additional protection or should be covered under home and contents insurance to make sure you’re not left out of pocket should the worst happen.” Flight delays are also likely to be experienced by those travelling to the Northern Hemisphere, as severe weather conditions are expected across the USA and Europe. “A white Christmas isn’t always a good thing for travellers. Aussies visiting the US should expect a chilling winter, with plenty of rain and snow. This applies across the States, as bitter cold temperatures are even predicted to reach as far south as Florida and the Gulf Coast.[4] Buying travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your flights can help to protect against cancellations and delays.” To help minimise the impact of potential misadventures, the team at World2Cover has five top tips for local holidaymakers heading away this summer: 1. Leave early – It’s the oldest trick in the book, but Christmas falls on a Sunday meaning you can expect even more people than usual to be hitting the roads, train lines and airways this Friday evening. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to make your flights and connections, as most travel insurance policies will not cover missed flights simply because of traffic.  2. First in, best dressed – As it’s one of the busiest travel periods of the year, it’s not uncommon for accommodation providers and airlines to oversell spaces. Be sure to confirm your reservations and check in as early as possible to help protect you’re booking. 3. Avoid the ‘silly’ part of the season – Partygoers can get carried away with the Christmas spirit. Keep your wits about you when celebrating, don’t leave any personal items unattended – whether on the beach or at a bar seat – and make sure you know how to get back to your accommodation safely. Failure to take due care of your belongings can actually invalidate travel insurance coverage for any lost items. 4. Pack with care – If you’re taking Santa’s presents with you, safely wrap and carry any fragile or valuable items, taking as many as possible in your carry on to avoid any tears come Christmas morning. 5. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, even if you’re staying close to home – It’s important to be fully protected, even while travelling domestically. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of things that can go wrong on a local trip, including delays, cancellations, and lost or damaged luggage. Domestic cover can help protect against the impact of these potential nasty surprises, meaning you won’t be out of pocket during the already expensive holiday period.   For more information on the comprehensive range of coverage options from World2Cover, visit www.world2cover.com.au.

Shitbox Rally 2017 forms strategic partnership with Bingle 2016-12-18T21:00:00Z shitbox-rally-2017-forms-strategic-partnership-with-bingle-1 Monday 19th December 2016: Box Rallies is excited to announce Bingle as a major sponsor of Shitbox Rally 2017. The leading car insurer will also be supporting the rally with free third party property damage insurance.   Starting in Adelaide on Saturday 27 May 2017, 450 participants will take to the Australian outback in cars worth less than $1,000 all to raise much-needed funds for the critical cancer research initiatives of Cancer Council Australia. Shitbox Rally now in its eighth year was founded by James Freeman in 2010. Each year, the rally challenges teams to explore some of the most remote regions in Australia. In 2017, the rally will embark on an arduous 3,800km seven-day road adventure from Adelaide to Cairns via the Oodnadatta Track and Plenty Highway. “The rally teams already cover numerous costs and devote so much of their own time in preparing for the rally and fundraising,” says Alison Connolly, Bingle’s Executive Manager, “Bingle believes in making everything ‘as simple as it sounds’ so as part of our sponsorship we’re proud to be making things simpler by providing free Third Party Property Damage Insurance to the rally teams.” Box Rallies Founder James Freeman welcomes Bingle’s support to the rally. “For years I have thought that an insurance company would be an ideal sponsor for the rally, so I am thrilled Bingle have come on board for 2017.  They have the right attitude for what we do at Shitbox and they are very supportive to our philosophy around humor and challenges. Their tongue in cheek name works so well with ours and the support they are giving to the rally teams is greatly appreciated,” says Mr Freeman. To further support Shitbox Rally, Bingle is also entering its own rally team to get the full experience for themselves. Shitbox Rally has raised over $8.164 million to date since its inception in 2010.

Shitbox Rally was founded in 2009 by James Freeman after both of his parents died from cancer within 12 months of each other as a way of raising money and awareness in the fight against cancer – a disease that now affects so many people. Over the last seven years, Shitbox Rally has raised over $8.164 million for cancer research, making the rally the largest independent fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.     The rally is a reward for all the fundraising the dedicated participants do to put into research for prevention and ultimately to help find a cure for cancer, and it’s a chance to meet like-minded people and see our vast and beautiful country in a totally unique way. To qualify to be in Shitbox Rally, supporters must have raised a minimum of $4,000. 2017 marks the eighth Shitbox Rally. Previous rally routes include 2016 Mackay to Hobart across Bass Strait, 2015 Canberra to Townsville via the Birdsville Track, 2014 Perth to Darwin via the Gibb River Road, 2013 Adelaide to Fremantle via Uluru, 2012 Melbourne to Cairns via Innamincka, 2011 Brisbane to Darwin via the Savannah Way and 2010 Sydney to Alice Springs via the Oodnadatta Track.
