12 Reasons Why You Should Visit the Same Destination Twice

Everybody has a different style when it comes to traveling. Some like to visit a country only once and then move on to somewhere else. Others like to travel back to that same destination again and again. We’re the latter, and we’re about to tell you why you should visit the same destination twice! We spent the month of March 2016 in Japan, and fell in love with absolutely everything about the country. From the incredibly kind and caring local Japanese people, to the awesome attractions and how smoothly everything runs. Tokyo might be the most populated city in the world, but life still runs more smoothly than anything we’ve ever experienced. Our love for Japan is so deep, that we’ve already booked our next trip! We’ll be returning to Japan for another month, during January and February 2019. We’ll be spending a lot of our stay in most of the same…

Visiting the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas

The Grand Canyon is probably definitely one of the most impressive National Parks in the world. If you’ve been living under a rock (or a canyon) for your entire life, the Grand Canyon is located in Arizona, in the United States of America. No matter how you decide to explore the Canyon, I can guarantee one thing: it will not disappoint. Visiting the Grand Canyon should be at the very top of your USA bucket list, trust me! I visited the Grand Canyon back in June 2015, while on the Best of USA Contiki tour. Although we we didn’t spend too much time at the Canyon itself, it was still one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. Contiki definitely came through and organised one of the most awesome ways to explore the Canyon. Visiting the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

The Ultimate One Month Japan Itinerary

When we were planning our one month Japan itinerary, we knew we wanted to fit in as much as we could into those four weeks. Japan might be a fairly small island, but there’s an incredible amount of things to see and do. It would take an entire lifetime and then some, to just explore Tokyo. We wanted to visit as many cities as we could, tick off as much as possible, and have the time of our lives while we were at it. Well, we are happy to report that all three of those goals were achieved! We managed to travel to six different cities over a four week period. Starting in Yokohama, we then traveled to Osaka, Hiroshima, Nagoya, Nagano and finally, Tokyo. We didn’t want to spend the entire four weeks only exploring Japan’s major cities. We wanted a taste of traditional Japan amongst all of the bright neon…

If you’re new to the world of travel, you’re about to discover something unfortunate. International flights suck. Whether it’s your first or tenth overseas trip, you’re gonna need some long haul flight essentials. Some people underestimate how boring, frustrating and plain awful long haul flights are. Not only are you stuck in a cramped and uncomfortable chair that’s way too small for most humans, you also run the risk of being seated near an annoying fellow passenger. I’m talking about those people who kick the seat in front of them, and the ones who think it’s okay to have loud conversations with someone from across the aisle. Those people are not fun to travel with. So in order to make the best of a potentially more than likely bad situation, you’ll need to be prepared. We’ve come up with 13 of the best long haul flight essentials, no matter your age.…
