What to Wear When Flying So You Don’t Get Kicked Off The Plane

What to Wear When Flying So You Don’t Get Kicked Off The Plane

We recently published a post on ‘should you wear activewear when traveling’, and this sparked some debate about what’s appropriate or not to wear on a plane. So in a follow-up post, you can find our best tips on what to wear when flying; what to wear to stay comfortable, while also remaining respectful of other passengers, and not getting kicked off the plane!

There are no universal laws dictating what you can and can’t wear on a plane, and while airline lounges may have dress codes, most airlines are pretty accepting when it comes to the plane.

“As long as you’re not sporting anything that may prevent the aircraft from flying safely, such as a suit of armor or a hoop skirt. – it’s up to the airline to decide what’s OK”. While all airlines will differ in their approach, here are some basic rules to follow.

Complete a Travel Memory Book by the End of Your Trip? Yes, Please!

Complete a Travel Memory Book by the End of Your Trip? Yes, Please!

On my first trip to Japan at 14, I got permission to take the family digital camera, and went truly overboard with photos. No-one could believe I returned home with … wait for it … 200 photos. Fastforward 20 years and we now take that many on our smartphones in less than an hour!

I got home from that trip, printed my favorites, and pulled out my scrapbook kit (glue, glitter, scissors – the whole thing!), to put together an amazing book of memories. And I’ve not completed a single scrapbook since.

Scrapbooking to preserve our travel memories is one of those things we’d all love to have time for, but unlike our 14 year old selves, as adults it’s a project we don’t have time to even begin. So our photos sit on harddrives, get buried in Facebook feeds, and we never have time to look at them again.

But what if you could finish a digital travel memory book BEFORE you even return from your trip? Something which was already designed for you, with very little time input, but produces an awesome product at the end? My friend Laura has you covered with her “On-the-Go Digital Travel Memory Book TOOLKIT”.

Fun Things To Do In Hong Kong With Kids

It may surprise you that the city with the most skyscrapers in the world is one of the most family friendly, with a huge range of exciting things to do for kids; but Hong Kong defintely is!

Between an exciting food to try, a long coastline with spectacular beaches, and perfect sub tropical weather, Hong Kong is a great way to introduce kids to other cultures, with a great blend of Western and Chinese traditions. And let’s not forget Disney!

While summer is best avoided because of the heat, and it’s not exactly stroller friendly if your kids aren’t walking (the city is very hilly and step heavy), Hong Kong is very family friendly, and should be more than a stopover on your itinerary.

Should You Wear Activewear Traveling? (Hell Yes!)

Should You Wear Activewear Traveling? (Hell Yes!)

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!’.

Bob & Brad C2 Massage Gun Review

Bob & Brad C2 Massage Gun Review

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.

Tips for Travelers Playing in Live Casinos

Tips for Travelers Playing in Live Casinos

Land based casinos used to be some of the biggest tourist draws for a country, with whole cities like Las vegas and Macau popping up in the middle of otherwise barren deserts, solely to meet the tourist demand. Though nowadays the online world is challenging the traditional land based experience, and you can cozy up in a luxury hotel room for the same type of thrills.

Live casinos is a relatively new form of gambling which is a hybrid of online gaming and a land based experience; you don’t have to visit the physical site and can log in from your device, though it’s still played with real life dealers, against other real life humans, and the action takes place in real time.

So you could be in Sydney, while playing in Vegas, without having had to pay for (or sit through!) the flight!

If you’re considering trying your luck at a live casino while traveling, or joining a live casino in another country, from home, here are some of our winning tips and secrets.
