Finding Food on Holiday

Posted on August 30, 2018 at 10:58 pm

There tend to be two types of people in the world: those who are adventurous with food and look forward to holidays as a way of trying different cuisines, and those who are worried about finding anything at all that they will eat. If you are in the first category, then you may actually have chosen your destination based on its quality local cuisine, and the exciting food opportunities it will give you.

If you are a little more concerned about food, it may be worth conducting some research before you travel. This will help you to find restaurants that appeal to you, or that meet with your dietary requirements. This can really help to put your mind at rest. You might also find some more traditional restaurants that you like the sound of. Understand local cuisines before you travel, in case there aren’t descriptions on menus, so you have some idea of what you are getting.

How to See More of the World

Posted on May 28, 2018 at 9:05 pm

Travel can become a passion, something that you will always love doing that will open up endless possibilities for you. If you are an avid traveller, you will always find ways to see more of the world. Here are some tips:

  • Take last minute trips. If you have a long weekend or find you have some annual leave left over, book a trip on a whim. You can get very good prices and see some unexpected places this way.
  • Look for the cheapest flights. Don’t limit yourself by looking for specific destination. Be open to a holiday anywhere in the world.
  • Keep costs down. The more money you have, the more trips you can take. Travel overnight on buses and trains so that you don’t have to pay for accommodation.
  • Use holiday allocation wisely. Plan it all out in advance so you know how many days you have to use. This will really help you to do more.

What to Take on Holiday

Posted on March 31, 2018 at 8:41 am

Everyone has a different packing list when they go on holiday – different people are comfortable taking a different amount of luggage. Whilst some people might just take hand luggage, others may need to take a case that they pay for as well to go in the hold. However, there are some essentials that everyone will need to take – here are some things not to forget:

  • Passport. This is the most basic thing you will need! The holiday won’t go ahead without your passport.
  • Bags for liquids. At the airport, you will need to put your liquids into a clear plastic bag that seals at the top. If you have one, take it, because this will save you potentially having to pay for a new one at the airport.
  • Additional equipment, like golf clubs or skis. Make sure you check with the airline what their policy is on sports equipment. You will need to book this in advance.
