When you think of the UK, what’s the first thing that springs to mind? Perhaps the vibrant city of London brimming with royal buildings, or maybe Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff or Glasgow with their shops, nightlife, festivals and general excitement.
There truly are some amazing cities in the UK. E
If you look up the most expensive countries to visit, European countries will be on top of the list. Whether you are on a 2 week or 3 month trip to Europe. You can minimize the impact this has on your wallet and sanity by not making the following mistakes.
1 - Not flying from City to City
Few things have the power to quash student travel dreams quite like money. A widely prevalent misconception is that exciting long-term travel is a preserve of the rich or at least households that have managed to accumulate substantial savings over several years. Yet, whereas travel
How do you plan your perfect holidays?
For a lot of people, the perfect holiday demands the perfect conditions. It’s a rare thing that only happens if you’re particularly lucky, just like winning the lottery. As a result, their holiday planning might suffer from lack of preparation. As simplistic a
That’s how they roll out here in Caye Caulker Belize. No one wants to work hard on this island and rightfully so, warm beaches, good food, and good rum do indeed contribute to the chill vibe. Life here is very simple and it revolves around leisure, not the struggle for money. In fact, there

Belgrade, a capital city I've visited three years ago when I was gallivanting around Europe in a car.

I met a traveler in Chile who told me she got scammed at the border - upon entry, she was certain she gave an immigration certificate to an official. But on her way out, she got detained by a border patrol who tol
In the summer of 2013, I went on a minimalism spree, packed up all my things, broke into my savings account, leased a car in Europe, and went on a six-month trip alone. Like most stories of self-discovery and awakenings, one day I realized my life was passing me by and I’ve pushed things aside think
One of the coolest things to see in Transylvania is ancient ruins and citadels. Rasnov Citadel is one such ruin that was built in the 13th century as a shelter from invading forces. The citadel sits on top of a rocky hilltop in the Carpathians roughly 650ft about the town of Rasnov. There're traces
What would you do if you had a day in Luxembourg?
A country so small you would believe it just a mere city. It's the world's only remaining grand duchy and boasts one of the world's highest GDP. I didn't spend too much time in Luxembourg, I explored it with a car and in a day, already saw most to th
