Taking to the seas is one of the best ways to explore new destinations.
Whether you choose to go on a cruise, charter a yacht or book a catamaran excursion, you can enjoy a different type of holiday, experiencing a side of a country or city that few rarely see. If you’re ready to sail away, here are some of the best destinations to hit the water.
It’s something people have strong opinions on – should you wear activewear casually, in public. Should you wear lycra onto a plane? Personally, I’m a fan.
Activewear is the best travel wardrobe ever created, and I’m not ashamed to say it; leggings and a sports bra are the perfect clothes to travel in. It’s called athleisure, and while Paris your gym clothes might spark reactions from certain cliques, I probably think the same of women wearing stilettos to explore as they do of me (though kudos to their pain threshold – seriously!!).
Active wear is built to be comfy, easy to wash, odor resistant, and means you can pack less. Fabrics can take a beating while still looking fresh, and wearing it is practical, versatile and effortless. So when I’m asked ‘should you wear active wear while traveling?’ my response is a resouding ‘Hell Yes!’.
You might not think that ‘beauty products’ are essential when you travel, but really, most personal care, skin care, make-up and cosmetic products are all described under the same category.
It can be a definite struggle figuring out which products you want to take with you; which to buy in your destination, which to pack in your carryon, and which have the least chance of spilling and making a mess in your bag!
Though there are some which are so practical, multipurpose, and serve your ongoing hygiene, that they become essential to feeling fresh, clean, and stress free.
Whether you’re moving for a new job, family, or to address your wanderlusting spirit to live a nomadic life, transitioning from tourist to an expat means you’re in for an exciting time.
However, being a tourist is entirely different from living an expat life. Even if your stint in the country is only a year or two, the big move is not without hardship. There are endless things to do and certain challenges along the way. But fear not because the world is now a global village with many individuals constantly moving from one country to the next.
If you speak with any expat, they won’t bombard you with their complaints or lament how hard it is to move. Instead, you’ll hear amazing stories about their journey and how they treasure this opportunity. To make sure your relocation is smooth, check out these helpful tips.
As we head into summer, more of us than ever are looking to book holidays. If you’re yet to book a break, it could be because you’re stuck with where to go, what to do, or just what you’re looking for from a trip away.
Trying to decide what holiday to go on can feel like a bit of minefield, which is why we’ve put together some quick refresher tips on the important things to consider when planning.
Despite its popularity, Prague is surprisingly not as touristy as would be expected, sporting a fresh young vibe with many recent renovations such as with the National Museum and State Opera, as well as a bunch of new projects being unveiled since we were all forced into lockdown. Always popular with international travelers, Prague ranks as one of the top ten most visited European cities. Here is just a sampling of some of the best things to see and do in Prague.
Saudi Arabia provides a variety of unusual experiences as a nation that is still relatively unknown to visitors from other countries.
Having been closed to tourism until 2019, a lot is beginning to change across the Kingdom, and as it begins to embrace modernization, movie theatres have been built, and international festivals have started being held.
As with any nation with a controversial cultural history, travel to Saudi now presents an opportunity to widen perspectives about the world, and interact with a society who are broadening their own perspectives through interactions with foreigners.
So to help you fully immerse yourself in the culture of the Kingdom, we look at some of the best events in Saudi Arabia, from poetry readings to flower shows, and traditional souks to camel racing.
Thought to be founded as far back as 1,200 BCE; Lisbon is one of the most sought-after metropolitan destinations on the planet. It attracts millions of tourists on an annual basis and thanks to an amenable climate, it’s just as popular over the winter months as it is during the dog days of summer.
While there are countless sights to experience, the fact of the matter is that it is often better to avoid the throngs of visitors in order to appreciate this city in an entirely unique light. One novel method comes in the form of a sunset cruise.
What are some of the attractions associated with such an excursion? Why might this very well represent the best way to fully appreciate the eclectic nature of Lisbon and the surrounding areas? Let’s quickly examine the perks of such a cruise to better appreciate your options.
As an active traveler I’m constantly pulling muscles, carrying far too heavy packs on my back, and dealing with stiffness from failed attempts to sleep on a plane. And if I haven’t got sore feet from exploring, it hasn’t been a successful day!
So I’m now a big fan of massage guns, which saves a ton of money on spa treatments while traveling, especially since physical therapists like Bob & Brad have an excellent compact, portable range.
While the smallest massage gun I’ve found to date is the Bob & Brad Q2 Mini Massage Gun, which ranks as a personal favorite, their next massage gun up is the C2. With more power than the Q2, and a bigger body, though still incredibly compact and lightweight, the C2 massage gun is also a fabulous choice. Here is our review.
Whenever you’re traveling, it’s important to pack all of the essentials. This includes sunscreen, a hat, and your passport, of course, but it also means packing any travel skincare products you might need to build a skincare routine suitable for summer.
If you’re prone to acne, finding the right skin care products to take with you on vacation can be tricky. But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! Here are our top tips and skincare steps for keeping your skin clear when traveling.
