While it’s true that Orlando offers up an abundance of family-friendly fun and entertainment, it’s also a major playground for adults, especially those who love to golf.
Not only do golfing snowbirds flock to Orlando every winter to escape the chill and snow up north, there are a number of famous golfers who have taken up residence or have been raised in and around the city.
Whether you’re looking to tee-off at one of the area’s historic, challenging, or simply downright beautiful courses or simply wish to be a spectator at a PGA event like the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, here are some of the top golf courses in Orlando you should check out.

For anyone who has been to New Zealand, you’ll know it as a country of unparalleled beauty, famous for its rugby team, world renowned trekking, and of course, for The Lord Of The Rings movies.
Unless you hire a campervan or a car, there aren’t actually a great many ways to see the country due to the distinct lack of a rail system. Of course there are buses that go almost anywhere but that’s a topic for another day.
There is another option though: cycling.
New Zealand and travelling by bicycle go hand in hand. So why not consider using a bicycle the next time you are fortunate enough to find yourself here.
Los Angeles has almost everything you could want from a modern metropolis. From fantastic food to vibrant nightlife, golden beaches, beautiful views, celebrity sightings, and of course professional sports, this Californian city boasts plenty of drawcards.
When it comes to sports, the City of Angels has the highest concentration of professional US sporting teams compared to any other city in the country.
Whether you are into football, hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, or even minor sports like esports, cricket, or surfing, LA has everything a sports fan could ever dream of.
Perhaps the only thing missing from LA’s sporting culture is the opportunity to bet on matches. While many other states can place online wagers, Americans are restricted to opening new betting accounts when they are out of state or in countries with legal online sports betting – like Australia.
Wondering what makes LA the biggest sports city in the world? Read on to find out!
Travel is all about freedom, and possibly a bit of adventure. Road trips offer an even greater sense of freedom as they allow us to travel at our own pace, ditch the public transport and tour buses, and uncover the lesser known gems of a destination.
While we often envision a vehicle when planning a road trip, a motorcycle road trip may just be the most liberating way to travel. Not only does riding a motorcycle force you to travel light, it also allows you to experience a greater intimacy with the landscapes you pass through and the people you meet.
Whether you’re thinking of planning a motorcycle road trip within your own country or abroad, there are a number of things to consider including choosing a route.
There are a number of exceptional motorcycle destinations, some of which will require a generous amount of planning and others which offer easy to plan self-drive holidays or even more stress-free guided motorcycle tours.
Whether you’re a fan of Harleys, Yamahas, or BMWs, here are some of the world’s top motorcycle road trip destinations you should consider.
It’s widely accepted that the best way to learn a new language is to immerse yourself. But how do you immerse yourself in Japan when borders are locked down? Or when you don’t have the means to just take off and escape to Italy (a girl can dream!).
There are plenty of ways to immerse yourself in language from home these days; apps, games, and even video chat with foreign strangers (though that’s if you’re paying attention to what they’re saying!). The problem is though, that while companies are constantly trying to make language learning fun, you still need to take time out of your day.
But that just changed! Toucan is a free Chrome extension (download it here) that helps you learn a language as part of your normal, everyday web browsing. Once turned on, it scans the text of whatever website you’re reading and changes a small number of words into the language you want to learn.
It peppers your normal daily web experience (social media, news and everyday reading) with translated words so you can pick up a new language without even trying, without changing your behavior, and without taking any extra time out of your day.
Whether you’re just visiting or newly adapting to expat life, one of the most challenging parts of being in a foreign country can be learning the local road rules.
You can easily find yourself driving on the opposite side of the road and trying to navigate road signs displayed in a different language. There may also be road hazards you’re unfamiliar with and harsh fines or punishments for breaking rules you’re not used to.
If you’re planning to travel to Dubai or have the opportunity to make the move here, there are some things you need to know before driving a vehicle that are unique to the UAE.
Dubai has a wonderful network of roadways, and having your own vehicle allows you the freedom to explore the hidden gems beyond the reach of the city’s public transport along with driving to the other emirates within the UAE.
While Dubai may offer a well built public transport system, there are many benefits for tourists to rent a vehicle or for expats to lease a vehicle. If you do plan to drive, be sure to check out this guide to driving in Dubai to ensure you’ll stay on the right side of the law and stay safe on the roads.

As far as budget accommodation goes in Sydney, you can’t find a hostel with a better reputation than the Sydney Harbour YHA.
With a killer location, killer facilities, and that million dollar view (think sushi from a rooftop terrace directly overlooking the Bridge and Opera House), booking a room is the best choice you’ll make.
But not only is the hostel clean, affordable, friendly, with spacious, stylish communal areas and all the amenities you’d expect from a modern hostel, it also wraps around the archaeological remains of colonial Sydney.
The Big Dig Archaeological Site is an area of land with archaeological remains from the late 18th century, the time of Australia’s first European settlement. The excavations are part of the hostel itself, and this remains one of the largest urban archaeological dig sites in Australia.
With rooms built around the excavated foundations of over 30 homes and shops from 1795, and artifacts on display throughout it’s halls, this is one of few opportunities in the world to spend the night on an archaeological dig site.
We often fear catching a stomach bug in places like Delhi or breaking our neck while zipping around on a scooter in Bali, but few travelers give much thought to how we’d manage a severe toothache while traveling.
This is rather surprising given that dental problems can be quite debilitating, so if you haven’t given much thought to your teeth when you travel, it’s probably time you start.
Dental pain is one of those aches that is really hard to ignore. Despite how minor problems with your teeth may be, pain can radiate around your sinuses and head, leaving you with a relentless headache and feeling exhausted.
What would you do if you cracked a tooth during a trip or came down with a sudden severe tooth infection? Do you keep up with your dental hygiene while traveling? And should you need to visit a dentist while traveling, will your traveler’s insurance cover the expense?
It’s time to uncover the most effective ways you can manage dental pain while traveling, how you can avoid dental issues, and everything else you need to know when it comes to traveling and your teeth.
Life back home doesn’t simply get put on hold when we travel. Although many of us welcome any chance we get to escape the monotony of our everyday lives by heading off to some exotic location around the globe, you can never really cut all ties with home in today’s world.
Thankfully, today’s technology easily allows us to stay connected to any responsibilities we may have back home while also allowing us to connect with friends and family to reduce the feeling of homesickness setting in.
Whether you’re jetting off for two weeks in the Bahamas or a year of backpacking across Europe, here are some of my top tips for how you can keep up to date with your life back home.
It’s always worthwhile staying close to the ones you love and maintaining your normal life back home so that it’s ready for you when you return without having to deal with any unfortunate surprises.

It’s this winning combination which made us fall in love with Spain; here are some specific reasons to love both Spain, and the Spanish culture.

After all, New Zealand has some of the best landscapes in the world!

But the basic travel essentials you’re used to will be very different once travel picks back up again after the pandemic.
Starting to plan your travels again? Here’s a checklist of the travel essentials you’ll need to add into your existing list of basics.
The pandemic has forced us to rethink how we do many things in our lives, from working and schooling remotely to social distancing wherever we go.
Travel too has been greatly impacted and many are now seeking out COVID-friendly holidays as travel restrictions ease; looking to adventurous RV holidays as a way to avoid hotels and public transport, joining the millions who have already embraced vanlife.
Vanlife is the movement that’s rocking social media. It’s about simplifying your life and realizing what’s truly important. It’s easy to see why so many people are embracing the lifestyle as it offers a great deal of freedom, flexibility, and adventure.
Renting an RV is a great way to decide whether you want to commit to vanlife as a lifestyle or simply wish to experience it as a travel break from everyday life. The flexibility allows you to change your plans at a whim; stay an extra day in a place that invigorates you or easily escape somewhere where the weather may not be cooperating.
If you want to experience a holiday where the possibilities are endless, check out these top tips for renting an RV and taking a vanlife holiday around Europe.
If you’re anything like me, one minute you’re typing up that report and the next thing you know you’re staring out the window imagining paddleboarding with sea lions off the Canadian coast or enjoying tapas at an outdoor cafe in Barcelona.
For most of us, making those daydreams come true takes a lot of work. You have to make a plan, figure out what the trip will cost, and then save up enough money to make it happen, all while crossing your fingers your safari money doesn’t end up as “fixing the broken car” money instead.
And then there are those travel hackers – the ones who manage to visit 10 countries every year and post about how awesome and easy it is to pay for first-class flights and 5-star hotels using credit card rewards.
It’s true – you can use credit cards and points and miles to take amazing trips for free, but travel hacking has a steep learning curve. You have to put in a lot of time and pay close attention to detail to consistently earn enough rewards to cover your travels.

While it may be one of the world’s most tourist-friendly cities, the mix of craziness, excitement, and sheer amount of choice Vegas presents can prove a bit overwhelming for first-time visitors looking to break their Sin City virginity.

Haven’t got the time nor patience to wait until 2050 for space travel? The good news is that you don’t have to and can do it right now in the world of gaming!
The original space race which ran from the late 1950’s right through until the culmination of the cold war in 1991, laid the foundations for space exploration and hopefully one day soon, space travel.
The thought and ambition of civilians traveling effortlessly through space, venturing to different planets as if they were just a simple Boeing 747 on a City-hopper journey, let alone inhabiting any of them may seem a bit far-fetched.
However, if history has taught us anything it is that anything is possible and with the rate of technology expansion and development it would be naive to completely rule such occurrences out in the future.
There have been many space theme games that have attempted to shed light on what life would be like if space travel were to become reality. Perhaps, for the time being at least, we’ll have to be content with a continuation of this until the correct advancements are made.
If you’re an avid traveller, collecting souvenirs of the places you visit is a fun way of commemorating your trips. Most people do this by taking photographs of their favourite destinations or saving boarding passes from their journeys.
However, there are times when you’re too busy to take a photo of your destination or even pick a trinket.
That’s when vintage travel posters come in handy.
Besides reminding you of places visited and the people you encounter, vintage travel posters have a truly aesthetic appeal. Photographic ads, banner ads and TV commercial are all the rage, but they can’t replace the rich culture that travel posters embody.
While winter may limit a number of things you can enjoy around the U.K., the snow and cold offers an excuse to check out some of the more unusual indoor British activities and attractions.
While many use the winter months to catch some West End theatre or explore the many museums, why not use this time to be original and experience something new.
While winter may not offer the warmth and plentiful outdoor activities the warmer months provide, it does present the opportunity to go skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, and even check out the Cairngorm’s reindeer herd.
But what if you’re not exactly into rugging-up and heading outdoors to brave the cold, snow, and ice? While you could simply snuggle up on the couch and binge The Crown off Netflix, there are endless exciting indoor adventures to be had around the U.K.
Here are just some of the top quirky indoor attractions that will keep you energized and amused as the days grow shorter and spending time outdoors becomes less enticing.
Being that Canada is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area, it should come as no surprise that it’s home to many incredible hotels and resorts.
Whether you’re looking at travelling to Vancouver in the west or Toronto in the east, there are luxurious accommodation options spanning the entire country from coast to coast.

Nepal is a heaven for trekkers with a smorgasbord of trails ranging from world-famous to lesser-known ones. Among those, the Manaslu Circuit Trek has been gaining popularity as one of the best treks in Nepal in recent years.
This 2-week tea-house trek is considered a great alternative to the well-trodden Annapurna Circuit, largely thanks to its beauty and the fact that it does not allow solo trekkers.
If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful region in Northern Central of Nepal, you’re in the right post!
