Traveling on a plane isn’t exactly fun. Entertainment options are limited on most flights, and you’re usually stuck in one spot for hours on end. How are you going to spend 5 or 7 hours in a plane?

A smartphone is a good way to break the tedium, but most apps need an Internet… Continue reading
There’s nothing like a good holiday to relieve stress and top up on rest and relaxation.

This is especially important if going on holiday with a caravan or in a motorhome. Missed turns, out-of-date route information, and motorway delays: these are common events that any caravanner probably knows only too well, and that all caravanners could… Continue reading

Walking those streets, thinking of its history, you might find yourself wondering what it would have been like to be there at some point in the past.
In fact, that is one of the most common things that crosses… Continue reading

One of the major concerns that come to mind while travelling abroad is the hazard of communicating with the people back home. One often gets disconnected from the world by failing to communicate properly. This happens because making international calls can get very expensive.

A good trip is not all about how fast it was. There are other factors that can ruin or make a trip. While driving down a roughed road with pot holes is obvious as a bad experience, I found that some people have actually had worse while just moving through the space but subjected to several flight limitations that do not only make a boring flight but led to a total ruin of trip. With Lufthansa, I saw that… Continue reading
