As a long term traveller, perpetual tourist, backpacking junkie and pure sightseeing addict, it is inevitable that sometimes I will embark on some cool flight routes and some unusual journeys. Today I pick out 5 of the coolest and most enjoyable flight routes I have taken in my time. 1.Guyana (Georgetown to Kaieteur Falls) The legendary aeroplane route from Georgetown to the splendid Kaieteur Falls will always rank high. Views are simply superb as your plane drifts into the Amazon basin region and over this gorgeous waterfall. 2.England – France (London to Paris) Sometimes the obvious journeys are the best and the speed and shortness of […]

Winter in the UK can be grim. It is cold, damp and generally no fun.  Dark early mornings, dark early evenings it can feel like you only ever see daylight when you are at work chained to your desk.  Getting away with some much-needed winter sun can really break up the long months before Spring arrives once more, so here are some of the top winter sun destinations for 2017. Valletta, Malta It won’t offer you steamy, sultry temperatures in the high 20’s during winter but Malta is still a lot more appealing than Britain.  You even find 6 hours of sunshine that is warming, […]

When you’re finishing high school and about to go off to college, you’re stuck in an ‘in between’. You’re not quite an adult, because you’re still heading to school every day and you’re still living at home with your parents. But you’re also not a child; you can drive, have a job and be independent most of the time. This kind of ‘in between’ can be fairly frustrating, but it also gives you the chance to choose whether you go directly to college or whether you decide to take a break from studying and go and explore. Part of choosing to have a gap year […]

Usually when we make our travel plans, we already know with whom we’ll be traveling. Whether it’s with a spouse, a friend, or even a colleague from work, we set off to explore our travel destinations together with someone else. There are those, however, who prefer to travel on their own. That is not something for everyone, as most of us prefer to share planning the logistics of travel. But for others, there are huge benefits in traveling solo. Before setting off on your journey, make sure to prepare for your trip carefully. While you may not necessarily plan anything more than its starting point […]

London is one of the most important cities in the world.   That sounds like a big claim, but it’s absolutely true. For one thing, the sheer size of London makes it a dominant city. Add into this its reputation as a financial hub, and it’s pretty tough to argue with the fact that London is as important as claimed. It’s often referred to as the capital of Europe, which is hard to disagree with in a sheer recognition sense. Alongside all this importance in general, London is especially vibrant in a historical sense. If you like to touch on the past with your travels, […]

Written by Nat Smith, community member. Rover is the nation’s largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers. Each time you jet to a new destination, you’re on a unique, unforgettable adventure. Wouldn’t you like your pet to experience the same thing while you’re away? Kennels and other one-size-fits-all approaches to pet care are not always ideal. They may not give your pet enough attention, or even turn her away because of breed, size, or temperament. So how do you find a caregiver as sweet, kind, and loving as your four-legged friend? That’s where comes in. Built as a supportive community for […]

When you travel the world for years on end, you end up with many stories. It is rare for me to share them on here, but now I decided I am single again so it is time again, having been into adult dating again recently. Sure I found love for real on my journeys, time and time again, but that can break your heart eventually. When I grew up in Northern Ireland, I delved into local dating a lot, and often used County Tyrone dating to secure nights on the rip with Ulster ladies. I didn’t want to name too many people on here as […]

When you travel the world for years on end, it can be hard to find love on your journey. Sometimes you don’t dwell or linger in a city long enough. You end up unstable and while I backpacked through North Korea, Australia, Italy, England and USA, I didn’t even find that everlasting love. You move on again and any friendships you developed are defined only via Facebook. Sure I found love for real on my journeys, time and time again, but that can break your heart eventually. So this is why many nomads and perpetual tourists are now turning to the internet to find love. […]
