Why chose an adventure holiday

Posted on September 29, 2014 at 10:50 pm

Most of us live day to day doing the same job, carrying out the same mundane tasks in the same boring setting so it’s hardly surprising that more and more of us are opting for a new more exciting style of holiday, an adventure holiday.

Whether it be scuba diving, white water rafting or rock climbing more of us are choosing to spend our ‘down time’ up and about partaking in adrenaline fuelled activities that take us away from the norm. A holiday that can suit all ages, these adventure holidays are our chance for a great escape and can perfectly demonstrate the theory that a change is as good as a rest!

So when deciding on a holiday this year why not put down the book, forget the beach towel and flip flops and get ready for the hair raising holiday of a lifetime, after all, you only live once!

Budgeting for a holiday

Posted on September 24, 2014 at 10:25 pm

Holidays are something that almost all of us look forward to every year. It is the one time when we can get away from the challenges of daily life and really enjoy quality time with our friends and loved ones.

Affording a holiday is often the thing that stops many of us going away more often and can mean that we end up going years without having a proper break away. I would recommend budgeting for a holiday as if it was an essential item such as your rent. Obviously if things got really tight then you may need to use the money elsewhere, but it is important to have that time away.

Holidays need not cost the earth, sometimes a few long weekends away in the UK are just enough to recharge your batteries. Some newspapers offer great budget camping holidays that can cost as little as £5 per person per night, and often these turn out to be great fun.

Traveling light

Don’t think you can manage going for a week’s holiday with only hand luggage? Here are a few tips to help you!

Don’t take toiletries – your hotel will likely provide the basics, and local shops should supply the rest.

Most hotels will provide a hairdryer, so check before you go so you don’t unnecessary items.

Decide if you really need to take straighteners or other similar items.

Try not to take too many pairs of shoes and wear your largest, heaviest pair whilst traveling!

Take a kindle rather than several books – you will save a lot of weight this way.

Plan your holiday and your outings and take clothes to suit. If you need to wash your clothes, hotels normally do a laundry service, or you can wash items in the sink/bath and hang dry them. By planning and removing unnecessary clothing you will save a lot of bulk and weight.
