Holidays to Bali

Posted on October 28, 2016 at 4:26 am

Bali is a very popular holiday destination due to its fine weather throughout the course of the year. Many people from Asia, Australia and New Zealand holiday in Bali but it is also an attractive place for people from further afield like America and Europe. It’s not just the weather that holidaymakers rave about, it’s the fact that you can do all kinds of activities such as watersports, relaxing on the beach, visiting monuments, climbing mountains and snorkeling in clear blue waters. Bali to many is paradise and it’s certainly a place that you simply have to visit if you’re ever nearby. If you’re considering visiting Australia or New Zealand anytime soon, you may want to consider heading to Bali because the scenery really is out of this world. Don’t take our word for it though, go and see it for yourself.

A guided tour from Perth to Darwin

Posted on September 20, 2016 at 11:46 pm

Great news for adventurers, you can travel from the national parks of the Outback to the pristine coast of Western Australia with experts at a fair price, but you need to be pretty fit to do so. Many people choose a guided tour in Australia, and it’s important to pick a professional guide to keep you safe on your travels, but by doing this kind of trip, which takes around a month, you will see Kalbarri National Park, feed the dolphins of Monkey Mia and snorkel in search of turtles and whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef. What’s more, you’ll discover the natural treasures of Karijini National Park, creep through Echidna Chasm in the Bungle Bungles and enjoy a splash in Katherine Gorge. There’s so much to do on the journey from Perth to Darwin but it’s fair to say the accommodation on this journey can be a bit rough. You may have to camp, stay in hostels and budget hotels along the way, but it will be worth it when you visit these famous landmarks.

Travelling with a frontpack and a backpack

Posted on July 2, 2016 at 9:28 pm

When you’re planning on traveling Asia, Africa or Australasia, it’s easy to picture yourself wearing a light backpack with a smile on your face and a warm sun beaming down on you in the background. While part of that painting may be true, the bit about the light backpack won’t. To travel for long periods of time you need a backpack that can store everything you need. Your backpack is your best friend. You live out of it. You’ll likely have a front pack too, this will be a backpack which you wear on your front, and it will be smaller with fewer items in there. You need to make sure both of these are durable, comfortable and secure. Make sure you do your research before you head off to a new country with nothing other than a cheap lightweight backpack with no room for your belongings.

Redheads – Surviving in the sun

Posted on June 14, 2016 at 4:48 pm

Travelling to a hot country is an easy transition for some, but as redheads are more likely to burn faster, steps need to be taken to prevent risk of serious sun damage. Australia is one of the hottest countries in the world, yet these a surprising number of redheads living there, so how do they do it?

Well, they don’t stay indoors 24 hours a day, but keeping out of the peak hours of 12-2pm is a good start. This will mean you avoid the harsh sunlight. Wearing cream every minute of everyday makes sense too because you can burn on overcast days too. It will just become part of your daily routine, like it is for many Australians. Wearing large hats can also help and many European backpackers cover up with hats when roaming around. The only downside with this one is that you really will stand out as a tourist.

Travelling in 2016: How to pack light

Posted on March 26, 2016 at 10:39 pm

Whether you’re soon to be travelling around Europe, Asia, Australasia, America or Africa, you’re going to need to pack your suitcase or backpack light. It’s not going to be feasible to fit a year’s worth of clothes in your backpack, and you have to make sure every item you put in your bag is there for a reason. Depending on the weather, you may only need to wear swimming shorts and t-shirts the majority of the time, so taking some basic clothes and sun cream can be enough. Whatever else you need you can get while you’re out there. You’ll buy clothes whilst you’re on the move, and you’ll make do with ‘bad hair days’ by taking a dip in the water. Travelling is about living a bit rough, but as long as you take some clothes for the first week, as well as all of your important documents, as well as a camera and a mobile phone, you’ll be fine. Don’t panic.
