Safaris can be the most incredible experiences for a nature lover. It is a style of holiday and travel unlike any other. Let’s look at what you should be bringing along (hint: it’s not khaki).
“Classic”. The word is used to denote a time gone by, a way of doing things that we recognize as ideal. Classic literature, classic rock, classic movies. Not that modern things are bad, of course. But despite any new and shiny arrivals, we all know that the classics are king. It can take some effort to bring back an old habit… But here are a few travel traditions that I think we’d all like to see returned.
Books are like wine. The right wine can make or break a meal, and it’s vital that they are paired correctly. In the same way, the right book can make or break a holiday.

Exercise tends to be part of our daily or weekly routines. Travel (in the very best way!) disrupts those routines. Of course, traveling itself can provide exercise (kite-surfing, anyone?)

Here are some helpful tips to have you dozing off in no time.
While many travelers want to behave nicely to the people who take care of them during their flights, there are those who would rather forge their own path. Those who know best, and who need their own way to be done no matter what. These are the people who will want to be as infuriating as possible to their cabin crew. But how can you make sure you’re doing all you can to reach your goals? Here is a handy and comprehensive list of activities to ensure effective and efficient irritation of your flight crew during the time you have available. From boarding to landing, we’ve got it covered.
Ah, the healthy glow of the sun-baked traveler. The deep, golden tan. The wrinkles. The spots. The doubled risk of skin cancer.

Sometimes (often) the excitement of planning and packing for the perfect trip can get in front of our common sense. And even if you have gone over your trip in minute detail, preparing for the unexpected is something else entirely. (Of course, preparing for the unexpected is kind of a contradiction, but… anyway. Ahem.) There will almost always be something we regret not packing, so here are a few items that you should consider bringing along.

Here are a few tips to help you choose which mode(s) of transport will be right for you.
