9 Benefits of a Staycation Holiday

With all of our travel plans continuing to be on hold for the foreseeable future, I am sure I am not alone in dreaming about my next trip for what is becoming an increasing amount of time with every day that goes by. I have come to the conclusion that the likelihood is that domestic travel will be a more viable option before international travel, so whether you are accustomed to the joys a holiday in your own country can bring or not, here is a list of the benefits of a staycation to get you excited for when we are able to move around (a bit more) freely again.

How to Survive Long Flights in Economy

For the past several years I have been fortunate enough to be able to fly business class on my long haul trips. However, I recently found myself in a position where this just wasn’t an option and instead had the conundrum of trying to figure out how to survive a long flight in economy instead.

I flew economy for many years (and still do on short haul flights), but I traded up for my long haul flights a while ago now and honestly, I love it. Travel is my chosen luxury in life and I really enjoy and look forward to the whole flying experience now it is so comfortable, even as much as the holiday itself.

Things to Do in Plettenberg Bay: Your Ultimate Guide

One of the must-visit destinations along South Africa’s iconic Garden Route, you won’t struggle to find things to do in Plettenberg Bay. The town that is often the start (or end) point of any Garden Route road trip has lots of attractions and is an ideal place to base yourself when exploring this part of the world.

I am a big fan of South Africa and for my most recent trip we had a bit of a debate as to whether we should stay in Knysna or Plettenberg Bay. We had previously stayed at Tsala Treetop Lodge as part of an epic two-and-a-bit week journey around the country, but this time we wanted to set a bit of a slower pace and just choose one base for our three weeks here.

My Favourite Travel Books for Planning & Inspiration

I have to be honest, I am not the massive reader I once was. I very much like to be busy and therefore can often find I read a page and have no idea what it said, or I suddenly remember an “urgent” task I must get done straight away.

However, there is one type of reading I have no problem concentrating on, travel books (non-fiction mind you)! Whether they be inspirational, coffee table or planning, as long as they are related to travel I really don’t mind. They give me both my travel and organisation fix and I always come away with new ideas for my next trip.

All of the books on this list are ones I personally own and love, some so much I have also gifted to other travel (and organisation) lovers in my life!
