What would be the first impression when you step in Galveston yacht basin?

Flexibility is what matters a lot.

While I was busy surfing the internet gathering information about Galveston yacht basin, I found some cool stuff that makes this place a blessing one to take a trip to. It goes without saying, we all know nothing goes 100% perfect and that’s why I tried to look for disadvantages.

Let’s cut to the point: When we refer to something as “lame” or “dum” is mostly based on our believes, behaviors and characteristics. When I did read a negative review about GYB, simply, I couldn’t find a convincing reason in that review. That’s why people commented and rejected the issue as well. The key to take pleasures in is flexibility. I for one, as a tour leader, always try to bear these statements in my mind: “nothing is 100% perfect but that won’t prevent me from traveling. I WILL keep on wandering in the world. Challenge is what makes a trip sweet. It teaches you new lessons. BUT that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be playing it safe: Always check the weather, Make necessary reservations, Do your researches (google, ask for others’ experiences). Keep an open heart and an open mind then you’ll see how a trip can turn out to be both enjoyable and memorable.”
