Why You Should Take a Walking Tour With a Local Amsterdammer!

Let’s be honest. When you’re visiting Amsterdam, you have to see the Dam Square, Red Light District and Rijksmuseum. But is it also a must to hop on a hop-on hop-off bus to check off all main tourist attractions like the typical tourist?

Even though many tourists still jump on that double decker bus, Amsterdam is a city brimming with local secrets and hidden gems that are off the beaten path. So what better way to explore the real city (and avoid the crowds!) than to go on a walking tour with a local?!

Local Amsterdammers are filled with pride for their city; they know its in and outs, know it’s beautiful nooks and crannies, and know which parts of the city offer incredible experiences without any tour groups or crowds.

But where can you find a local Amsterdammer, willing to take you around?

4 Things To Do During Dull Layovers

As exciting as traveling is, airports can be some of the dullest places on Earth (with the exception maybe of Singapore – being in Changi is like discovering wonderland after having fallen down the rabbit hole!) Yes, travel is often about the journey, not the destination, but no one enjoys being trapped in the terminal.

No matter how prepared you are for the airport downtime, armed with a top ten’s worth of airport best sellers and a fully downloaded Netflix hit, it’s still hard to make a layover interesting. Often times it takes all our energy not to fall asleep at the gate!

If you’ve got a long journey coming up, here are a couple of ways you can keep yourself entertained during layovers.

Things to do in Tenerife on a Canary Island Cruise

Things to do in Tenerife on a Canary Island Cruise

A Spanish volcanic archipelago of seven major islands, the Canary Islands is one of the world’s most beloved cruise stops. While the Canary Islands may belong to Spain, they sit just off the coast of north-western Africa, geographically part of the African continent.

The largest and most populous of the islands, Tenerife offers up a year-round destination with ideal weather and abundant natural beauty; from the north to south, the island is blessed with diverse landscapes and range of unique micro-climates.

There are readily available direct flights from Europe to the Canary Islands, but the most popular way to travel is by cruise. Luxurious Canary Island Cruises not only take in the islands but also often include incredible destinations such as Portugal’s Madeira archipelago and the stunning Cape Verde islands.

While there are a number of beautiful islands to explore in the Canary Islands including Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and La Palma, Tenerife is often considered the most exciting and beautiful.

Traveling to Tenerife by cruise? Whether you’re into nature, outdoor adrenaline sports, archaeology, or simply relaxing, check out these amazing things to do!

Book The CHEAPEST Flights on the Internet: FlyLine Lets You Buy at Wholesale Prices!

Book The CHEAPEST Flights on the Internet: FlyLine Lets You Buy at Wholesale Prices!

There are many tricks out there for booking the cheapest flight, and a lot has been written about hacking your way to paying less.

In 2016 the advice was to book exactly 56 days before departure. In 2017 we went nuts about mistake fares. In 2018 email subscriptions took off, where you could sign up for alerts of cheap prices, and in 2019, companies started offering everyday travelers access to wholesale airfares.

Over the past 4 years, I’ve written about each and every one of these trends. And each and every year I think: This is it, travel can’t get ANY cheaper. This is the biggest game changer yet.

Because you can only hack your way so far before reaching the bottom. Surely, at some point, there’s no more room for any less. But I’m proven wrong year after year – travel does continue to get cheaper. And a new company called FlyLine has just defined 2020’s cheap flight trend.

By offering virtually interlined flights (I’ll explain that in plain English in a sec), while giving you access to wholesale prices, FlyLine is beating out companies like Skyscanner and Kayak for the cheapest flights, and is the newest way to book flights for less.

This is the biggest game changer yet!

Essential Apps Every Digital Nomad Needs to Succeed (They’re ALL Free!)

The cultural shift towards working remotely has been one of the biggest trends of the 21st century. In the 1900’s, people were proud of their traditional office environment, but once the 2000’s hit, we dared to reinvent this.

We dreamed of working from our laptops in Sicily one day, and Switzerland the next. Of filing reports from a villa in Bali, or answering emails from the plane, en route to our next exciting country.

Yes, the concept of remote work has been one of the biggest movements of the century; it’s now incredibly common for entrepreneurs and freelancers to sustain themselves through online income, and more and more companies are offering positions for remote employees.

And while this is exciting; total freedom of movement, and the ability to work from anywhere as long as there’s a laptop with a connection, there’s a lot of work and discipline required to stay on track while traveling.

There are many tools and products that make life easier as a digital nomad, from blue-tooth keyboards, to lap desks, and portable wifi, but today we’re going to look at the apps you need for success.

Covering everything from your accounting, to your diary, and easy-to-use video conferencing, the best thing about the apps in this list is that they’re ALL FREE … keep your business expenses down by using these!

Teaching English Overseas: A Guide to the TEFL Industry

Look out your window, whether that be your office or your bedroom; what do you see? Is it the same old scene; dreary, boring, cold? Is the nine to five, Monday to Friday ritual just becoming too repetitive, too samey? Wish you could magic yourself away for a while?

Oh, wait, there is! You can teach English as a foreign language – TEFL for short.

For a while now, people young and old have travelled to other countries to teach English. There are a myriad of reasons why: for the love of teaching, experiencing other cultures, funding globetrotting, gap years, a break from the ordinary… the list goes on.
