7th September 2018 No Comment
So this is it, my big news of the season – I’ve got a new job. And I’ll say this quickly to get it out of the way – it doesn’t involve any overseas travel. At all. If you follow my travels at all, you’ll know that a lot of the trips I’ve done have […]

It’s my last day at home today before I’m heading back to the office, so I thought I’d take some time to write down my travel plans for 2018. I love reading these kind of posts from other travel bloggers as everyone has such great plans and I look forward to travelling vicariously through them […]

Five ideas to beat the dreaded jet lag

The majority of my work travel over the past couple of years has been decidedly long-haul, which means that as well as getting to discover some incredible places, I’ve also enjoyed my fair share of jet lag (going both east and west).

I’m gearing up for another busy travel period at work, starting with a trip to Colombia, Jamaica and Barbados in about a month’s time. It got me thinking about what travel essentials I need to stock up on before I head off (I’m a planner and hate leaving that kind of stuff until the eleventh […]

I received the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones for my birthday/Christmas last December (see what other travel gifts I received here!) I’ve been using them on every single trip I’ve taken ever since and I don’t really know what I did without them. Basically, they’re absolutely amazing and have had a significantly enhanced my in-flight […]

So it’s summertime, you’re going away soon and you’re really excited! Maybe it’s just for a quick business jaunt or for that luxury three-week holiday that you’ve been saving for.
