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.

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.

Health Advice for Travelling to Thailand

Posted on October 19, 2016 at 9:16 am

There are excellent private hospitals in Thailand but they can be very expensive depending on location. Public hospitals and clinics in Thailand are not always up to UK standards, particularly outside Bangkok and in the coastal islands. Many hospitals require guarantee of payment before they will start treatment. Make sure you have adequate travel health insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad and repatriation

If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 1669 and ask for an ambulance. You should contact your insurance/medical assistance company promptly if you are referred to a medical facility for treatment.

Medications which are only available on prescription in the UK like Viagra, Cialis and Valium are readily available in popular nightlife districts across Thailand. Medication sold on the street is unlikely to be genuine and may have been stolen. Taking medication without medical advice or a prescription can have serious health consequences. Please bear in mind that UK health authorities have classified Thailand as having a risk of Zika virus transmission.
