    Traveling with family or friends can be super fun, but if you travel as a group, you could be paying more for your airfares than you would if you were traveling alone.

    Most of us take holidays just for rest and usually we used to spend our holidays doing by nothing or sitting in front of television, sleeping, drink wine with friends, playing with pets, reading some interesting books.

    That annoying flight passenger in the dark

    In my last flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles, we started off in night to reach LA in afternoon. This meant that most of the flight route would have daylight outside.

    Ditch the checklist model of travel

    Often, when we talk about travel, the emphasis is placed on breadth of geography, rather than depth of experience. Plenty of people boast about seeing Rome, Paris, and Berlin in a single week, as though crossing capital cities—and by extension entire countries—off of a metaphorical checklist. Certainly there is something to be said for visiting […]

    Travel tip: How to access offline Google Maps on iOS

    We always recommend getting lost in a city or town rather than using maps, which is another reason to talk to locals asking for directions or for that amazing restaurant. But if you’re searching for something specific, then maps help. Most travelers don’t have data connectivity while on the road in international destinations and sometimes […]
