With post pandemic travel back in full swing, it’s time to dust off those passports which have been sitting with us in lock down for so many months / years. Though despite many of us in desperate need of vacation, as quickly as borders started to re-open, most worldwide economies started taking a hit.

Getting out in nature is something everyone can enjoy in the right conditions, but not all camping trips are going to provide a satisfying experience. Unless you’ve prepared for a trip that’s suited for you, you’re not going to get a whole lot of enjoyment out of it. You need to make sure that when you’re camping, all of your needs are being taken care of.
Sure, some might argue that camping is all about roughing it – but it doesn’t have to be. You can spend your time in the woods living in luxury if you want to, so long as you can pack it and bring it with you. Ultimately, the experience you have comes down to how you prepare for it.read more
We’ve written a lot of different articles on ways to stay entertained while traveling; from staying entertained on road trips, long bus journey’s, and when you’re stuck at the airport because of a killer flight cancellations and delays.
But one of the best places to spend time in an airport is the lounge; beyond the great food, free champagne, and comfy seating, there are often showers, magazines, and free WiFi.
Some lounges come with great inbuilt entertainment – cool games rooms, libraries, a la carte dining, and even spa centers. But some can be downright boring! A restful, quiet space to kick back in a comfy chair with some great food.
If that’s not enough to keep you entertained, here are some ideas for things to do, while still maintaining a respectful, quiet atmosphere for the other travelers who do just want their chair and their food.read more
Digitalization has made it possible for us to store a significant amount of personal and financial information online. As a result, we no longer need to worry about having the right paperwork and documents for travel, making travel even more convenient.
But with every good comes the bad. The more your personal information is accessible online, the more likely you are to become a victim of identity theft.
Identity theft occurs whenever someone else uses your personally identifiable information (PII) without your permission and with malicious intent. You may think that only naive people fall victim to identity thieves, but the unfortunate truth is that even the most cautious individuals are not immune to this risk. So how do you protect yourself?read more
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.read more
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”.read more
