Its no secret that family road trips can be incredibly stressful 

Especially if you have multiple children, and many, many miles to go. We have all seen the same blog repeated a thousand times with a myriad of activities to keep children occupied during family road trips, and yes, in a perfect world, all children are content to color and play with pipe cleaners and quietly keep to themselves for hours on end… but back here, in the real world, children have to use the bathroom, (always at the WORST time), they get bored (understandably so), and this boredom and frustration over the inability to get up and use up some of the endless energy they can’t help but have, often ends with tearful tantrums on their part, and equally frustrated parents. In this article we will provide a list of activities to keep your little one(s) occupied, but we will go beyond that and focus on family roadtrip ideas for parents.

To be clear, the following family roadtrip ideas are not a cure-all, nor are

Things to Prepare Before Taking a Long Trip

1. Make sure your household bills are up to date

This may sound obvious or even pedantic but you really need to think about something like this. Last year I went on a tour that was 3 weeks. It covered the last 2 weeks of one month and the first week of the next month. Once of my household bills from the first month hadn’t arrived before I left and was delivered whilst I was away. This meant I had no way of paying it for that month. When I got back I was greeted by final demands as this particular authority was known to be ruthless with non-payers.

2. Check your travel and medical Insurance

It is important when going on a long trip you have the correct travel and medical insurance.

Pre-Travel Tips for You to Trip Using RV

Most people these days are over enthusiastic about an adventure backpacking and why won’t they be? After all, these days’ people hardly can enjoy an extended vacation due to extreme work pressure. So the prospect of a hiking trip seems extremely appealing to most people. As appealing as it might sound, going hiking is not everyone’s cup of tea.

Methods to Travel the World

Many people dream about being able to someday retire and travel the world. There are also a growing number of people who are considering career breaks and time after school to travel extensively. A top concern and deterrent of these individuals is the cost of travel. This article will outline the several ways to save on transportation costs to allow discounted travel around the world.

Know your top destinations, but be flexible. Making a list of top destinations is an excellent outline for a travel plan, but keeping flexibility on how and when you arrive there is a key to budget travel.

• Airlines use specific airport hubs to connect flights to other destinations. Searching for direct flights both in and out of these locations can save significant amounts of money on tickets. It also often allows for time to explore the area around these hubs between flights.

• Start at an end destination and work your way back. Look at a top destination’s airport website and look at all inbound and outbound flights. This will give you information on which hubs service these locations most often, and other possible destinations of interest you can use as a connection.

Tips for Girls Traveling Alone

Choose accommodation wisely.

Check all the hotel options, location, services they provide and type of rooms. Try to avoid hostels.

Protect your money and documents.

As your packing and luggage, you need to travel light and avoid carrying many handbags and stuff with you. A good tip is to get a money belt, you can find it easily, it is cheap and you can use it under your clothes.

Visit public and safe places.

Avoid walking alone especially at night and in dark places. Try to visit popular places and if you need something or get some information avoid asking a stranger, you better go to a coffee shop, restaurant or store and ask an employee. You can also have with you a pepper spray.

Avoid Taxi Cabs.

Taxis are not always the best option, you don’t know if they’re completely safe or which route they can take. You don’t need to be looking for a taxi standing alone at street, there are some private transportation agencies like Uber or any airport shuttle that will provide you the whole information of your ride like the type of car, driver’s name, routes, and timing information. You can also ask for a woman driver if you want to!

List of Character Traits for Adventure Travelling

One aspect of traveling that will always remain a constant is that the road you choose will always challenge you. That’s just part of the journey my friend. And if you aren’t tough, it will eat you up. I’m not talking about being physically tough. All the exercise in the world doesn’t combat mental challenges you may face while traveling. I am talking about character toughness. The ability of being able to turn negatives into positives. The ability of being able to move forward through the tough times you’ll face in order to reach your final destination. The ability to welcome adverse conditions along the way and grow from them. This list of character traits will help you reach your goals when the gear you packed just isn’t enough.

Accept Criticism

Life is full of critics. There’s never a shortage of people saying you can’t do that and here’s why. For one reason or another, someone will always find a reason to project their insecurities, negativity, and fears onto you and your life. Being able to accept that criticism in a positive way will help you grow as a person and plan for situations you may not have otherwise seen on

Maximize Your Travel Budget

Thinking of going on an expensive getaway this year? At first glance it may seem too costly but there’s a good chance it may not be as unfeasible as you had initially thought. Listed below are some tips and tricks I have picked up throughout my travels to hopefully help you save up that little extra bit of money you need for your future trip.

1. Leave one night early, cut out one night of rental costs

When traveling on a budget one very easy way to cut down on extra expenses is to leave the night before you were originally planning to depart for home. Doing this will effectively cut out one night’s worth of hotel costs and if you set up a red-eye flight you can still get a whole day worth of activities in before you have to head home. Booking flights during the traveling off-season can also net you some serious savings if you wait for the right opportunities too.

2. Cut back on unnecessary meals

Another tip I recommend is that, if possible, you should agree to cut back or cut out one meal per day. If you can’t do that then come prepared to make yourself a

Plan a Spring Break Vacation

Spring break is right around the corner and heading off on a trip with your family would be amazing, but it’s not always in the cards. Work, money, health issues and more can get in the way of planning a vacation out of town. A staycation can be a great alternative, but how do you make it a success? Here are some tips and ideas to get you going.

Set Some Ground Rules and Make a Plan

Start by deciding exactly when your staycation begins and ends, and then set a few guidelines for what your family may or may not do during this time. Consider disallowing mobile phones, electronic devices, working from home, arguing, cleaning, cooking, and whatever else will interfere with your family time. Next, book some activities and entertainment, just like you would on a real vacation. The following ideas will give you inspiration for planning your spring break staycation.

Go camping. Reserve a site at a local campground and spend a night or two in the great outdoors. If it’s not camping season yet, hit your backyard or take it indoors in rainy weather. A family sleepover in the basement or living room is a novelty for most

Guide to Checking Travel Bags

Let’s admit this; a lot of us think checking baggage is the ultimate travel solution. It’s not as straightforward as it looks. Anyone who has faced the misery of having reached their destination without their luggage knows exactly what a terrible experience this can possibly be.

On many days, it is simply sheer bad luck. However, on others it can be traced back to some mistakes on your part once you check-in your luggage. Here are some things to keep in mind when you are checking travel bags.

1. AIRLINE POLICIES

This is often taken for granted by many travelers. If one airline is generous with it, the other should be following their footprints. This is seldom the case. All airlines may have very different rules when it comes to checked baggage. There is mostly only one thing common among each of them; airlines are not very generous when it comes to luggage that you check-in.

To avoid putting yourself in any awkward situation, you must read the fine print about the airline policies towards the luggage. This should be done when you book your ticket with the airline. Little can be done once you arrive at the airport, oblivious of what the
