With ByKhushbu Shah March 19, 2019 I’m a recent convert to budget airlines, even though I may have once thrown a tantrum at the Ryanair check-in counter when they charged me 40 euros for forgetting to print out my boarding pass. Frequent fliers may turn up their noses when they hear I’ve traded miles toward Delta Platinum status to fly airlines that have suggested charging passengers to use the bathroom while flying at one point, possibly removing seats to make passengers strap up and stand for the duration of the flight, and the ever-evolving hidden fees on others. For the most part however, low budget … [Read more...] about 4 Tips to Fly a Budget Airline Without Hassle

December 19, 2018 By Guest Leave a Comment Volunteering abroad is an incredible opportunity to combine seeing a new country and culture with helping others and giving back. With volunteering available globally to include on a gap year or more short-term. Here are some top destinations to volunteer abroad: Australia Australia is home to The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system, arguably the best place in the world to volunteer in marine conservation. With over 2,900 individual reefs there is plenty to get stuck into. Volunteers are invited to collect important information on everything from mangroves to manta rays and coral to coastal habitats. This information helps both the community and decisions based on the reef. There are far more sheep than people in this country and thus, there are many volunteer options to volunteer with sheep on a sheep station. Similar to volunteering on an agricultural farm volunteers can help the hosts with … [Read more...] about Where To Volunteer, An Overview of Top Volunteering Locations.
Airlines · December 8, 2018 Every year I make the annual trek to Europe, a gruelling 23-30 hour journey from Australia that involves at least one stopover in Asia or the Middle East and after years of return trips, I’ve found my favourite route to be via Hong Kong to allow for a stopover in one of my favourite cities the world over. Hong Kong is a city that requires at least a few days and up to one week to visit, by which time you should have experienced the best the city has to offer and after which be ready to continue your journey onwards to Europe. The Deck Lounge If you don’t have time for a stopover or would prefer to arrive in Europe pronto (perhaps seeing Hong Kong on the journey home), the new lounge by Cathay Pacific known as “The Deck” is a must visit. The lounge has panoramic views of the busy airport happenings below, an open-ceiling verandah, an impressive buffet and even a dedicated noodle bar. The Best European Cities to fly in to When it … [Read more...] about Flying to Europe with Cathay Pacific
The first time I left to go traveling, I had saved about $10,000 and was ready to live off of that for an entire year. While I know that budget wasn’t massive, especially since my first stop was in Europe, I was determined to make it work. With that budget, I managed to travel all over Europe, the US, and all over Southeast Asia, in what I can only describe as a whirlwind of a year. I was on a budget but I still managed to see and do everything that I wanted, it just took a little ingenuity and resourcefulness. Eight months after I returned from my big trip, I decided to leave again, this time, with only $2000 to my name. Armed with big dreams, this blog which we just started, and not much money (at least on my end), my partner Tom and I left for Indonesia with no particular plans except we wanted to grow our blog and travel the world. Fast forward to today…we’ve been working and traveling the world for almost three years non-stop. Want to know how you can do it … [Read more...] about How to Travel the World for Longer: Our Top Tips
The Chronicle has launched a new weekly Travel newsletter! Sign up here. It was rush hour in Los Angeles, but I was going 155 miles an hour, northbound along Interstate 5. Ordinarily that would merit a hefty ticket, but I wasn’t worried — the nearest cop was at least 10,000 feet away. That’s the altitude we’d reached over the past few minutes in our tiny airplane, a four-seat Piper Turbo Arrow. I’d booked my flight through a ride-hailing app called Blackbird, which can fairly be called an Uber for airplanes. “We’re hoping to deliver on the promise of the flying car,” Rudd Davis, founder and CEO of Blackbird Air, had told me a few days before my flight. “Right now, driving is miserable — road infrastructure isn’t getting any better, and there are more and more cars on the road.” From the air, I looked down at the gridlock and found myself agreeing with Davis’ assessment. Before long, however, our route from … [Read more...] about Future of flight
