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

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!

“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

While vacations are usually an escape from your habits of everyday life, sometimes incorportating parts of your daily routine at home can be a stress relief when you need to distract yourself while traveling, or unwind.
Online games have become many people’s go to ‘sport’, especially since even tech-friendly camping means you can charge a phone using the sun! But can you still play these if they’re classified as casino?read more
Travel evolves like everything in life, and I’ve found myself going from traveling solo, to traveling around the world with my partner, to now coordinating exclusive women-only tours.
I’ve quickly realized that traveling with a group of people is a lot different than traveling alone or simply with a single other person. You’ll find countless online articles that offer endless travel packing tips, but few focus on how to pack for group getaways.
Packing effectively for a group trip can be a bit different than when simply traveling solo, so I thought I’d offer some of the tricks I’ve picked up over the recent years while traveling with groups. Planning your next group getaway? Here’s how to pack when you’re part of a travel squad!read more
