Guides & Tips

Whether you are a globe-trotter or just love a good holiday, there are some things about the world that everyone needs to know. Take a look at my handy travel tips to guide you on your merry way…

Turbulence Tips

If you’re like me and absolutely hate turbulence, I have a fantastic tip that might just do the trick. Now, this might sound a little silly, but to counteract the turbulence, simply jiggle your body in your seat. You might feel a little foolish doing so, but you can guarantee everyone will be considered about the turbulence than your weird little movements.

Learn a Little of the Lingo

It pays to know a few words of the local language. Sometimes a hello, thank you or please in a person’s language can go a long way, because they’ll feel warmer towards you if you have taken the time to learn their mother tongue.Pack Earplugs

Pack Earplugs

Earplugs will be your saving grace when abroad. Trust me. They’re great if you want to sleep, and are perfect if you happen to book into a hotel with thin walls and/or noisy guests.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

If ear plugs don’t do the trick, you could always pop in some noise-cancelling headphones, which are perfect for drowning out upset children or noisy groups on the plane.

Take a Hoodie

It doesn’t matter if you are travelling to a hot destination, always take a hoodie with you on your travels. Even the most tropical destinations can suffer from bad weather conditions – and a hoodie is always a great thing to have on the place, because you can warm yourself up from the air-conditioning, pull up your hood and block out all the other passengers.

Bring a Kindle

Instead of buying books that will weigh you down or be damaged by the pool, invest in a space saving Kindle or another e-book reader. Load all your favourite reads onto the device and they’ll be just a click away when you’re ready for them.

Opt for Plane’s Vegetarian Option

Vegetarian meals are always served first on a plane – so you don’t have to worry about waiting in line. Plus, they are often made in smaller batches, so can often be a lot nicer than the meat dishes that are made in bulk.
