- Choose clothes Carefully:
Everyone always wants to look their best when traveling but sadly there isn’t enough space for all the stylish clothes you have. Our advice is to choose clothes which are thin and weigh less. Most importantly, pick the ones which can be used for multiple occasion and dress codes. Once you’ve decided, cube your clothes or make sushi rolls because that saves a lot of space.
Deciding which shoes to take is especially harder for women. But the truth is that you can’t take a pair of shoe for every set of clothing you packed. I wear my most comfortable pair and keep a pair of flats and heels in my luggage.
- Fill dead space:
I have small feet and I mostly wear flats. Each pair of my shoes goes in a shopping bag and I thrust it wherever there is space. You can do the same with socks and undergarments as well.
- Wear heavy clothes:
Wear your heavy clothes to reduce weight of your luggage. Wear a heavy jacket which you can then take off and put in an overhead cabin once you’ve boarded the flight.
- Stock ziplock bags:
One day, I do not remember if I was in a backpacker or in a pub, I saw an advertisement on the wall that unchained my imagination. The image of wonderful tall ship with all its sails unfurled appeared in front of me. A comment said that being on it would have been an adventure of a life time experience.
It was about a week cruise around the Whitsundays, a collection of 74 continental islands in the North-East Coast of Queensland.
I was hooked. I knew that I needed to go.
The ad also publicised: “Backpackers willing to help out with serving food and cleaning up will get a huge discount.” Without hesitation, I went to a travel agency and I bought a ticket immediately. I was very lucky; the ship was nearly booked out for the next weeks and they only had a few places left.
I was very excited about the trip and the ship as well. I started to gather information about my new mean of transport, which was a brigantine.
What is a brigantine? I am sorry about the technical wording but there is no other way to get
You are expected to eat breakfast and dinner in the same lodge where you are spending the night. Prices of rooms are seemingly inexpensive because of this (100-300Rs for a double) lodge owners tend to make more money on the food and drinks they are selling you than on the room where you are sleeping.

Manang and Mustang are of the higher elevations and are predominantly Tibetan Buddhist. The Manang people are Gurung (not Tibetan descent) and are very proud of their unique cultural heritage and merging of lower land Gurung and Tibetan cultural influences. People of Mustang identify themselves a lot closer with Tibet and the Mustang region has actually been part of Tibet in history. Mustang also is one of the last places in the world to view the ancient Bonpo Religion in action. Annapurna trekking has been wildly recognized as a naturalist’s paradise. The upper sub-alpine steppe environment harbors some of the rare snow leopards and blue sheep. The conservation area has 100 varieties of orchids and some of the richest temperate
Choose a Medium for Your Journal Entries
Most people love the idea of writing their travel stories in a leather bound notebook. However, if you want the world to read about your adventures, you can even start a blog and start putting in your entries. It could be anything from a small paragraph about the places you are visiting or your experiences. And if you have the time, you can even write complete How-to blogs to help other people plan their journeys.
Start Travelling ASAP
In order to be able to maintain a travel journal, you will first have to start travelling. Pick up a destination and go there. If you have a busy life, dedicate a certain period of the year to your travels. If you don’t have money, you can save up and plan a trip on a budget. For instance, you can easily book cheap flights well in advance so that you save both money and time.
There’s a reason why most people these days want to be travellers and not tourists. It’s because tourists go around a place, sightseeing the important monuments or historical landmarks. On the

The guests will get to view the Burj Al Arab Hotel, the third highest hotel in the entire globe and one of the most astonishing buildings of Dubai.
Another magnificent tour in Dubai will be to Jumeirah, or the beautiful place. This area hosts the largest artificial island in the world and many other notable buildings like the Jumeirah Mosque, one of the magnificent mosques newly built in the Gulf Region. Jumeirah welcomes many of the tourists who spend their vacations in Dubai.
The highlight of Dubai and the most famous landmark of the city is Burj Khalifa, the highest building in the world. The height of this skyscraper exceeds 800 meters; the construction holds many international records like the world tallest structure ever built, the world highest restaurant and nightclub, and the world highest structure that is freestanding. A visit to skyscraper is included in almost all tours to Dubai.
The guests who tour Dubai will have a superb time in the traditional Dhow dinner cruise, where the guests would enjoy riding in one of the traditional Arabian sailboat, enjoy an entertaining oriental performance, and have a delicious dinner.

The Sea of Cortez is incredibly diverse in marine life. From a stone and stucco beach house on the Baja Peninsula, you may see whales breach 200 yards offshore! One of the finest things that I have ever seen was a sunset viewed from a Spanish stone arch doorway that led to a beach-level patio at Altata, on the Sea of Cortez. It wasn’t just the colors of the sunset, but the warm feeling in the air, the allure of old Spanish Mexico, and the aroma of delicious food that cooked over a fire pit, that brings my memory of that place alive.
Every town along that sea originated as a sleepy fishing village. Most still are that, but American tourism has caused changes, especially when the village becomes popular because it is mentioned in a film. Zihuatanejo is not on the sea (it is farther south on the Mexican West Coast), but it used to be mostly a fishing village. Now, cruise ships go there to bring thousands of people to see where Andy Dufresne hid after he escaped a New England prison in the film “Shawshank Redemption.” Andy told Red, “Hope is a good thing,
- Leave early! Your commute is much more likely to be harrowing and stressful if you are running late. Leaving a few minutes earlier than you think you need to provides a buffer in case something goes wrong. And if you’re driving you’ll be less likely to speed since you won’t be trying to make up for lost time. That means increased safety for you and other drivers on the road.
- Listen to podcasts. Downloading podcasts to listen to while you drive or walk provides an opportunity to learn about virtually any subject or topic. TED talks are a great place to start. If you love reading, why not try buying (or borrowing) an audiobook? I have a friend who swears by these.
- Tune in to local radio stations. Some morning radio shows are downright funny and entertaining. My favorites are the ones where listeners call in to play trivia games.
- Learn a new language. I’m finally making use of a CD set I purchased a few years ago and have been learning French for the last two months during my commute. If you use a mode of transportation where your hands are free (like a
Pre Planning for Long Weekend Outing

There are many things, you have to plan to go for a long weekend outing.
Packing these kinds of stuff is not a difficult or tiring task; the difficult task is to decide.
It is to choose which garb to pack. Let us help you a little in this weary task.
Here are some ideas that you might want to consider for attires to be packed.
“Travel and change of place impart new vigour to the mind.” Travelling is something which we all love. But even during travel, we have to clinch what clothes we want to wear. As it is very much important for us to be comfortable even during travel. These are some of the garbs you might want
Choose a Location That Requires Minimum Travel Time
If you are going to need a long time to travel to your destination, then you will be wasting a lot of time on just getting from one place to another. Pick a place that you like and is also close to your place of residence. You could choose a small place on the outskirts of your city. If you, however, want to fly out then make sure that you keep the travel time in mind. Also, if you are looking for the lowest airfares on domestic flights, then the shorter the distance, the cheaper they will be.
Decide What You Want to Do
When you are going on a vacation, you might have some idea about what you would like to do while you are at it. If you are just going to destress, then you don’t have much planning to do. All you need to do before flying out is to book a hotel so that you don’t have to worry about it later. On the other hand, if you want to explore a place, then you must narrow down the places you would like
