The Biggest Sports City in the World? Los Angeles, California

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!

Best Countries for a Motorbike Road Trip

Best Countries for a Motorbike Road Trip

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.

Toucan: The Free Browser Extension that Helps You Learn a Language Without Even Trying

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.

Guide to Driving in Dubai for Tourists and Expats

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.

Spend the Night on an Archaeological Dig Site: Sydney Harbour YHA Hostel Review

Spend the Night on an Archaeological Dig Site: Sydney Harbour YHA Hostel Review

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.

How to Deal With a Toothache While Traveling

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.

How to Keep Up to Date with Life Back Home When You’re Abroad

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.
