Taking Photos Whilst Travelling

Posted on December 22, 2017 at 12:20 pm

When you are on a travelling adventure, you will most likely have a camera of sorts with you. Some people choose to take a DSLR camera, whilst others may think that their mobile phone will suffice. Whatever method of photography you choose, you will be able to take lots of different photographs whilst you are away and you should make the most of it – this is a once-in-a-lifetime type of experience.

Don’t be afraid of taking too many photos. You might feel like you are going to be an annoying tourist, or you might possibly not want to take your camera out and carry it around all the time. Fair enough – don’t take it every day. You should also spend lots of time looking at places of interest and experiencing them in real life, not from behind a camera lens.

Do take plenty of photos though. You don’t want to regret it when you get home.

Golf is a great activity, especially if you are somewhere sunny. It’s a pleasant way to enjoy some sun and to see the surrounding area, all whilst playing a fun and engaging game. If you are thinking of taking up golf, why not learn to play whilst you are on holiday?

Gold has many benefits:

  • It’s good for your health
  • It is a sociable activity
  • It’s a great way to relax
  • It’s something the whole family can play

Taking a family holiday doesn’t need to stop you – take a family course in golf. It won’t be too much for younger children and it is a new way to spend time together.

If you are going on a holiday where you want to play gold, consider destinations like Portugal, Spain, Germany or even Austria. All are renowned for their world-class golf courses and will give you plenty of opportunities to practice your game.

How to Plan the Ideal Trip

Posted on October 28, 2017 at 2:48 pm

Planning a holiday or travelling adventure is no easy task. There are so many options and possibilities to think about – what could go wrong? Where should you stay? Will there be lots to do? What if you get lost and you’re on your own?

One of the key things to remember is not to panic. Many of the situations you think about simply aren’t going to happen. One of the best ways to be a successful traveller and to enjoy your journey is not to think about it too much.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan ahead. This is especially important in destinations that are likely to be busy because you might struggle to find accommodation. Plan, without panicking yourself.

Make sure you do your research about your destination. Have an understanding of what it will be like and how easy it will be to travel there. Make lists of things to do and plan your days as you go along.

Choosing a Winter Break

Posted on August 26, 2017 at 1:51 pm

The summer is almost over and if you haven’t had a summer holiday this year, you will probably not have much time left before the children are back at school. One other option is to consider a winter break. This gives everyone in the family the opportunity to try something new and enjoy a different type of holiday.

There are many winter holiday destinations where you can try activities like skiing and snowboarding. Make sure you get some professional tuition if you don’t know how to ski – it can end up being a very costly holiday if somebody has to go into hospital with a broken leg! You may also want to take some lessons before you go away on holiday.

Make sure you have the right insurance. Standard insurance policies won’t usually cover you for adventurous winter holiday activities. You need to be fully covered before you go away.

Posted on August 1, 2017 at 11:50 am

Travelling will often be trouble free and many holidaymakers enjoy wonderful breaks without having to worry about anything. Sometimes, vacations can be less than ideal though as you may get ill, be the victim of a crime or find that your accommodation is less than desirable. Here are some of the options if you run into trouble:

• Talk to a local. They can give you advice like where to find the nearest police station or who you should contact. They may also be able to lend you a phone. • Contact the travel police. Lots of destinations that have lots of tourists will have dedicated travel police to help you with any difficulties.

• Have a conversation with staff. If you find problems with your accommodation, speak to the staff seriously yet reasonably. Often they will be able to help you out and find a solution for you, like moving you to a different room or building.
