Five Ways To Survive A Long Haul Flight

March 8, 2017
IMG_2244

I traveled on a lot of planes in 2016 – 34 to be exact. And a large chunk of those were long haul flights. I had quite a few fourteen hour flights. And those can leave you feeling restless, exhausted, and sometimes like you were hit by a bus. So, you must be wondering, “How do I survive a long haul flight?” Along with getting up frequently to help with circulation, drinking plenty of water both before and during the flight,…

I am a big believer in travel insurance. I’ve had to use it on more than one occasion and I’m going to share those two stories with you today. But before I do that, I’d love to ask all of you, do you buy travel insurance before a trip or do you just wing it and hope that nothing happens? I’d love to know your views on purchasing it before a trip. The First Time I Used My Travel Insurance Last…

How Do You Afford To Travel?

January 27, 2017
afford to travel

This seems to be the age old question. I get it all of the time. People email me and send me DMs and ask, “How do you afford to travel?” And I really don’t like to talk about money, but I’ve got to be able to direct people to a post. I think my biggest issue with this question is that it seems as if people assume that I don’t work. I work. I work while I’m not traveling and I…

I’ve become a bit of a pro at flying over the past two years. I have been on at least fifty planes in that time. Because of this, I’ve learned how to make the time pass quickly. This means I know how to not only stay entertained, but feel good too. There are several things I won’t get on the plane without. Some of them are fairly obvious, like a good pair of headphones, a sleep mask, ear plugs, and…

When I’m traveling, I love to make the most of my time in a location. And that sometimes means waking up at the crack of dawn to go exploring. It sometimes means scheduling days (although I do love to go with the flow). Keeping Time With Daniel…

Packing For 3 Weeks With An iFLY Carry-On

November 11, 2016
iFly Carry-On

I really like to think that I’m a good packer. Through the years I’ve definitely improved and learned to pack less. You may think you need something, but odds are you can get whatever you forget wherever you’re traveling to. As you all probably know by now, I usually travel with a travel backpack. But, it’s not always necessary. I knew that I wanted to have the option of using a carry on sized luggage on shorter trips. That’s where my iFLY…

STOWAWAY: The Makeup Kit That Every Traveler Needs

November 4, 2016
stowaway

I always end up traveling with about three or four toiletry kits filled with all of the things that I think I need on the road. Let’s face it, most place you travel to you can buy anything that you’ve forgotten. But, I found that when I was in Asia, every skincare or makeup product for your face was loaded with whitener. So, I ended up bringing so much more than I needed in fear that I’d run out. This was an…
