13 Long Haul Flight Essentials to Stay Entertained

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.…

10 Things to do in San Francisco in A Weekend (For First Time Visitors)

In June of 2015, I embarked on my first solo adventure. Although technically I wouldn’t be traveling alone, I still survived a 15 hour flight from Adelaide to Los Angeles on my own. After spending most of my life dreaming about visiting New York City, a couple of years ago I decided to do something about it. I found the perfect Contiki tour that would not only take me to New York City, I would also be able to finally visit San Francisco, too. I only knew a little bit about the things to do in San Francisco, but thankfully we already had a rough itinerary planned for us. There’s only one thing that I was certain about at the time: I was very, very excited but at the same time, extremely I think I’m gonna vomit nervous. Whether you’re visiting San Francisco for just one day, or an entire week, there are lots of things…

11 Tips for New Travel Bloggers

Blogging is a very competitive industry. A lot of people don’t consider this when starting a blog that they intend to monetise, but soon come to realise that it can be a rough gig! During the first two years of this blog (back when it was Rhiannon Travels – a travel blog), more and more people started up their own travel blog. I personally started mine because I love to write, and wanted a place to share my own travel experiences. Though there were lots of travel blogs online already, there weren’t many for the type of traveller I was writing for.
