The Benefits of Going on a Local Staycation

The Benefits of Going on a Local Staycation

While I readily admit I have a preference for international travel, there’s nothing stopping me nor anyone else from experiencing a rewarding vacation right in their own backyard.

Staycations are a great option for travelers who may be short on time, have limited finances, or when there’s a global pandemic that forces a country to ban its citizens from traveling internationally as I’m currently facing.

While a staycation may not seem as exciting as holidaying in a far flung exotic destination, there are a number of benefits from holidaying at home. So why not consider staying within your own locale and take advantage of what your own city or town can offer.

There’s never been a better time to embrace staycations. The current pandemic has seen many countries close their borders to tourists and many of us have taken a financial hit due to ongoing lockdowns and restrictions.

Whether you simply don’t have the means to travel internationally right now or don’t feel motivated to deal with the many Covid-related travel regulations and restrictions that have been imposed around the globe, consider planning a staycation and realize for yourself why it may be a rather enticing idea.

A Close Look at the Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh Portable Power Station

There are many portable power stations on the market, and it’s now become an essential for when you’re camping, roadtripping, or embracing vanlife; a guaranteed, reliable source of power even when you’re off grid or traveling remote.

Electricity is not something you want to sacrifice on when traveling, and when it comes to portable power stations, this is one area where it pays to invest in the most reliable, highest capacity choice.

Despite new brands and models constantly hitting the market, the Bluetti AC200P 2000Wh is still the most reliable portable power sources. So today we’ll be expanding on my original review, to take a closer look.

5 Reasons to Choose a Bicycle Over a Campervan When Travelling New Zealand

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.

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

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.
