ahh the tradegy of man hehe I think its rather refreshing to see men take on a role that use to be percieved as a females role in the past and in a way in some parts of the world this is what women are expected to do. :P so have you found out more things than you use to know before about your household?

Errmmmm let me list, lol

How to work the washing machine.
How to cook.
How to iron.
How to clean to my partners standards (the hardest of them all)

They seem to be the main ones!! o the life of a house husband/wife.

I have to admit, I envy the people who do what I do as well as have kids. I envy them because firstly they must have the patience of a saint and also to try and do housework and still have to think about where the kids are all the time is a task that I wouldn't be able to do at all.

So well done to all the stay at home parents with kids and even bigger well done to the single parents.

So what part of the travel industry are you wanting to break into. I know that you obviously want to keep it a little secret at the moment, but what can you tell us that won't give the whole idea away?!

travel is a hard one
1) you are up against some really big players
2) you are up against the internet and low cost bookings.
thats the bad new.
the good news is it makes it cheap to advertise to minority interests.
working holidays, odd places like libya and off the beaten track places for history. there must be a knights templar tour one could do from france to jerusalem and throw in the whole da vinci code/masonic/templar stuff. but keep it off the mainstream as you cant afford to take on the big boys research or booking fees.

yup the travel industry is definately hard thats why the type of traveling that Im going to offer would not be in a place where there are large companies.. at the moment the place i am thinking of going into has a monoploy and it would be good to introduct some competition against the company their. Ive visited several times and have noticed something about their services and ive read reviews fro people that have been their and the same problems keep arising. I think its about time I capitalise on it as well as create a certain standard thet would force the company their to reinvest to catch up. I feel it would offer a unique service. although I dont want to go into too much detail
