Africa - So much more than a destination

Africa - So much more than a destination

Change your perspective on life.....

In 2014 I visited Africa for the first time, specifically Kenya where I had just under three weeks of traveling. Before I went, a couple of people said to me, “Africa will change you. You’ll feel different.” I really wondered about that concept of feeling different and being changed and wondered how a country could do that. But   it is absolutely true! Africa does change you. You come back a different person. And you come back with a different appreciation of what really matters.

I remember visiting a Maasai village and on our way back from the village, I said to our guide, “Gee, It’s a tough life”.  And his comment to me was, “Why do you say that?” And I said, “Well it seems very tough in terms of what they have and their living conditions.” Then he said, “But they have everything they need. They have everything they want. They have fresh water, they have food, they have a great sense of community and they’re happy. It’s an uncomplicated life.”

Solo group travel - the best of both worlds

Solo group travel - the best of both worlds

Travel Solo – But No Need To Go it Alone

More and more adults are travelling the world each year. In fact a recent study by Visa found that around 24% of trips undertaken last year were people travelling solo. That's 10% up on 2014. 

But there are still many more who would love to travel but would prefer to do it with someone else. Traditionally, solo travellers have found themselves caught between a rock and a hard place: wander the world alone, or sign onto a group tour and endure acting a perpetual "plus one." Thankfully, a new alternative is now available and promises to serve marginalised solo travellers in a new way: by offering solo only group tours. As it turns out, solo group tours is more than an oxymoron – it’s a travel revelation.

10 Survival Tips for Introverted Travellers

10 Survival Tips for Introverted Travellers

International travel is riddled with social situations that put introverts on edge – from the chatty passenger on the plane, to group walking tours, and dinners served with a hefty side dish of small talk. Far too often introversion is lumped together with adjectives like shut-in, shut-down, shy, or unfriendly. When the truth of the matter is that introverted travellers are just as adventure-prone and engaged as their party-hardy counterparts, they simply have a different way of expressing it and coping with the world around them.

6 Tips for Fitting Everything into Your Carry-On Bag

6 Tips for Fitting Everything into Your Carry-On Bag

Nothing wears down on a traveller’s joy quite like luggage problems. Hoisting unruly duffle bags through airports, wearing the same outfit for weeks while the airline tries to locate your lost luggage, juggling multiple suitcases as you flit from one hotel to the next – it all adds up to a travel nightmare.

Raptured for River Cruises

What would you do if you didn’t have to lug your bagged from one hotel to another? How would you feel if someone offered you no layovers, no crowded trains, or indecipherable bus schedule? What if your personal driver was a sea captain, and always greeted you with a new city to explore each morning and a new gourmet meal to dig into each night? It sounds like a traveller’s pipe dream, but it’s really just the latest trend in international exploration: river cruising.
