Visiting Gallipoli

Travel

robin-1591052_640Gallipoli is a place steeped in history, and if you are in Istanbul or any other part of Turkey, a tour to the historic site is well worth considering. Whether you are interested in military history or not, the area has a huge amount of cultural significance and provides an eyeopening travel destination. The first world war battle for control of Hellespont strait was fought largely on the Gallipoli peninsula and it was a bloody and horrific conflict with 100,000 casualties. Today, in memorial, Gallipoli is a national park and has a huge amount of memorials across the multiple battlefields.

The easiest way is to use a company offering Gallipoli tours, this will mean that a lot of things are taken care of for you and you can follow a structured itinerary and ensure you see everything with a guide whilst you are there. The experience is very profound and is something that is recommended for people from all sorts of backgrounds, and many have relatives who fought in the war and find it very interesting to learn more about one of WW1’s key battles.

As well as the memorials, the landing beaches and the cemeteries, the area has an interesting natural history and is visually very impressive. Visiting the site is relatively simple if you are staying in Turkey’s capital and a Gallipoli tour from Istanbul can include pick up and drop off from your hotel and even light meals so you can just enjoy the ride without the stress of having to make your own way there.

Featured Business: Travel Bug Co

Blog

travelbugWho doesn’t love to travel? In the modern age, travel is easier than ever, and in a world of low cost airlines and travel deal sites and hotel price comparison, the process has become relatively simple. On top of that there is more travel inspiration via blogs and youtube channels and the chances of catching wanderlust have improved markedly too!

One inspiring company story is that of Travel Bug Co, who founded based on an ethos of not having to work a nine to five, and the fact that travel should be accessible to all. They have created a huge range for travel lovers and some quirky products for those of us who enjoy heading around the globe whenever the opportunity arises.

Tank tops, t shirts and hoodies are among their best selling products, and with such well made apparel, they are great for your next trip!

Their ethos is also to keep their designs both eye catching and straight forward and simple designs, and with so many big heartless clothing companies out there, it is very cool to see a company doing good work like this and thinking about their customers.

I love their location specific series which have designs based on certain destinations, their ‘I left my heart in Vietnam’ series for lovers of the Asian country steeped in history is particularly great.

For readers of our blog, who more than likely adore travel and all that goes with it, the designs are great for staying fashionable as well as showing the world what a travel bug you are!

Postcards, 21st Century Style

Blog

mypostcard-postkarten-app-logo-mainSending a postcard is a wonderful tradition for people on their vacations. For hundreds of years now, postcards have been a great way to send a message home from wherever you are in the world and let people know how your trip is going, as well as giving them a photo from wherever you are in order to keep. The excitement of sending or receiving a postcard is a wonderful thing, but it has started to die in recent years.

The revival of postcards has been digital, and companies like mypostcard who have a website and an app designed to help you to digitize the process, and change the whole process of sending a postcard. As well as being easier to do via the my postcard app, the whole experience can be even more exciting as you can make it personal. Instead of sending a photo of a random beach, send a photo of your family sitting on the bench on a beach or take your own pictures on your phone before adding filters, effects and of course your own message before you submit it for postage. No need for you to go to a post office yourself as you can do it all from the comfort of a beachside restaurant on your phone or tablet. If you have taken your laptop with you you can also do it from their site.

The process of sending a postcard has become better. Not only can you personalize but it is so much easier than it has ever been. The fact that you can send something unique to you will be even more exciting when received by your friends and family at home.

Benefits of a VIP Transfer in London

Travel

london-530055_640There are many reasons to visit London. It has an amazing amount of history and the capital city of England offers a huge amount in both leisure and business. Many of the biggest companies in the world have bases in the city, and the multicultural melting pot is also an amazing place to stay, and home to some of the most brilliant sights in the whole of Europe, from big Ben to the Shard to the London Eye.

If you’re landing at one of London’s airports, you’ll need to work out  how you’re going to get around, and some of the airports that serve the city aren’t very central, meaning a transfer is essential, but if you’re new to the city and don’t know your way around yet, or don’t want to handle the driving, it is best to leave it up to the pros and get a luxury transfer. This takes a huge amount of the stress out of the process. It is tough even if you aren’t driving to work out the public transport system from the airports to your destination. London is a beautiful city and if you’re going to get around on public transport you will likely end up on the tube, and in an underground system, the opportunities to soak up the sights are gone!

There are many companies offering luxury airport transfers and chauffeur services which can kick off your trip to London, whether a luxurious travel break or a business meeting, in style.

How to Raise Extra Cash for Traveling

Blog

cash-1296584_640Most people want to travel at some point in their lives, and the urge to visit new and exciting foreign lands is inbuilt within the human race. Though traveling can be one of life’s most fulfilling and amazing activities, it is also one that comes with a price tag, and especially if you want to go for a long period of time or head to somewhere exotic, the money can quickly become an issue. We’ve put together a quick guide on how you can raise some extra cash for your next trip, suitable for pretty much anyone to try and hopefully to see you jetting off to foreign lands.

Sell Stuff. I don’t necessarily mean to sell things that are precious to you, or to get rid of your car and not have transport when you get back, but a lot of us have things around the house that we wouldn’t mind selling on online stores or auction sites which allow us to get good coverage for our items and hopefully raise a fair amount of cash. Old clothes that don’t fit, video games we don’t play any more, jewellery we don’t wear, there is so much that we can pick up over the course of our lives that we don’t end up using. Another clever idea is to sell stuff on behalf of your family or friends (no, I don’t mean stealing their items). A lot of people have tons to sell but don’t have the time to list it online themselves, meaning if you did the job for them in return for a small cut of the profits, you could quickly find yourself picking up some extra cash without too much work.

Crowd Funding. Crowd Funding is often for business ideas and charities, but if you have a large and generous circle of family and friends, a lot of the time they don’t mind throwing a little cash towards your next travel adventure. Make an appealing page explaining why you’re asking for money and what you plan to do on the trip, and if it is a once in a lifetime break, aunties, uncles, friends and even strangers might be willing to contribute in some way. A lot of small donations can add up, so you don’t need to ask for much money from each of your friends.

Rent Out Your Place. If you’re lucky enough to be a homeowner, it is easier than ever to rent out your home on places like air b’n’b. This can be a great way to ensure you still have some money coming in while you’re on holiday, and even if you are only going for a couple of weeks, having someone pay to be in your apartment can take a big chunk off your travel costs. If you live in a popular area or somewhere in demand for those traveling for either leisure or business, it can be surprisingly easy to find a suitor to take over your lodgings while you make money on the go.

Hotspot: Making Roaming Charges a Thing of the Past

Travel

wifi-1264065_640We travel more than ever before. Cheap airline flights and modern technology have made it easier than ever to head to even remote parts of the world. When we land at a new destination, most of us will quickly turn off the mobile data on our phones to make sure we don’t rack up huge bills. Horror stories tell of people unknowingly spending thousands on data when traveling, and some phone tariffs are not friendly to globe trotters!

Fortunately, there are alternatives, and one of these, hotspot on the go, is tackling the problem by providing unlimited internet use for up to 10 devices whilst holidaying in one of Europe’s most popular destinations, Greece. The fact that you can connect so many devices safely means it is great for families as well as solo travellers and can provide internet in even remote areas, no need to go hunting for an internet cafe! The battery life can last around 8 hours too, so you don’t have to worry about it dying on you as soon as you get started.

As if all this weren’t enough, the company can drop off and pick up at your apartments, meaning you don’t even have to go to specific stores to collect your device. All in all, this is a truly brilliant system.

In a busy world where none of us want to be away from our email updates and news for too long, having internet access is something we all expect, and we don’t want to pay the earth for! This innovative solution is great for travellers heading to Greece.
