What to pack for a Caribbean cruise

Other than by luxury yacht, there are few better ways to explore the Caribbean than on a cruise. But with a range of activities and onboard events, you may be left wondering just what to pack for a Caribbean cruise. While every island is unmistakably “Caribbean”, they also offer something decidedly unique. One day you might be exploring the roots of reggae in Jamaica, on another you could be simply relaxing on the white sand beaches of Barbados. Then there’s the fun evenings back onboard ship, and formal evenings such as the Captain’s Dinner. All of this means packing for a Caribbean cruise needs some careful consideration. Continue Reading

Unusual places to visit in Tenerife and one of the best RCI resorts on the island

Tenerife has long been a popular holiday destination, particularly with the British. This Canary Island promises year-round sun, cocktails on the beach, and fun-filled attractions such as Siam Park and Loro Parque. But there are also plenty of unusual places to visit in Tenerife, away from the busy resorts and guaranteed to keep even the most over-grown kids occupied, including the world’s third largest volcano, Mount Teide.

Tenerife is so varied – from the vibrant resorts and golden beaches of the south to the dark, volcanic sand of the north, through to its historic towns, so you’ll want to explore.

Hiring a car in Tenerife is always a good idea, as traversing the island from south to north and vice-versa is very easy and ‘doable’ in 70-minutes. You can also do the journey by bus so you get the best of both worlds on the island .

If perhaps you’ve visited a few times before, or you’re looking for a day trip that offers something a little different. We have great ideas on what to do in Tenerife as well as where to stay.

Plus don’t miss an exclusive special offer at one of the best RCI resorts in Tenerife. Continue Reading

How to travel: 12 travel beauty hacks for your best holiday ever

Although travel can often be a time for us to let our hair down and shake off our usual routines, it’s also one of our most photographed times — and it’s nice to still feel as though we look nice, and a little polished. But the flight restrictions regarding the amount of liquid you take in your carry-on luggage, and the ever-present fear of exploding shampoo plus dehydrating cabin air all collude to try and bring down our travel beauty dreams.

Two ways to see Africa’s Big Five at Kruger National Park

For those in need of a serious wildlife fix, you’ll likely struggle to find anywhere as wildly populated with incredible animals than the Kruger National Park. It was one of the best experiences of my life when I visited recently, and I was lucky enough to experience it in two very different ways. After a very long drive, one I hadn’t anticipated to be quite as long we were scaling the dizzying heights of the magnificent Kruger National Park, all 4.8 million acres of it. (Yep, it’s THAT big!)

How to travel to Helsinki and beyond on the Airbus A350

Helsinki, the capital of Finland may at first glance seem an unlikely destination for travellers, but I’d urge you to reconsider. Finland may be a land less travelled (all the more reason to go there in our opinion). And visitors that do head there tend to go to Lapland to see Santa Claus or the Aurora Borealis, missing places like Lahti region – part of Finland’s incredible lakelands – this is a country with more than 188,000 lakes, it’s southern coast and archipelago with 20,000 islands and the capital. However, Helsinki is a diverse and vibrant city with much to offer in its own right… Continue Reading

A tale of two cities: a twin city break from Helsinki to Tallinn

The journey from Helsinki to Tallinn is certainly different to what you might expect between two European capital cities, certainly in winter at least. In the deep freeze of the season in northern Europe, these cities are set in ice, and the journey on the Helsinki to Tallinn ferry is an ice-shattering experience as the ship cuts through a frozen Baltic Sea. Northern Europe was for a long time under-explored for us, so we were excited to venture north, and discover these cool cities. They have commonalities – a trendy, kooky Nordic vibe – but their contrasts make them a fascinating twin city break. Continue Reading

How to book a package deal – 7 tips to find a great package holiday and transform your travels

Booking a package holiday may seem simple. We all know how to find a package deal, right? That’s so 1988. So the title could have you thinking we’ve stepped into a time machine to steal you away from that online booking engine you’re using. But the travel industry is changing. For some years many holidaymakers have turned their back on the trusty old travel agent, and have been crafting their own holidays. Researching their destination, mixing and matching flights and hotels, finding preferred dates, services, and more. We’re big fans of this way of booking travel, and have packaged our own trips for well over a decade now. But, as with any trend, things are cyclical and it seems the package holiday is back.
