Packing your bags for an overseas holiday? Here are a couple of tips to assist you on your next overseas adventure…

Use technology

Technology makes our lives a lot easier.  As I will be traveling to Indonesia soon, I have set my cell phone on a dual display for my home city and my destination city for the last two weeks before my departure. Now I can see what time it is in Bali and at home and what the weather is like in my destination city. This will assist me to decide what to wear and what to pack.

To travel or not to travel?

Should i travel

The dream of an adventure to faraway lands seems to be out of reach for many South Africans. Due to the constantly changing exchange rates and the falling value of the Rand, travelling overseas seems to be an unaffordable luxury.

Unfortunately, instances of terrorism and international tragedies at restaurants, dance clubs and airports have frightened many people off from travelling overseas. Natural disasters like tsunamis, earthquakes, and cyclones have taken the lives of many travellers and have made foreign destinations less attractive to some explorers.

Travel to thailand

Thailand is the most popular destination for most. It’s almost constantly sunny and warm, it’s cheap, you don’t need a visa, and there’s a huge hype around the beaches.

Bliss in Bali

Bali travel

The boarding gate’s waiting area is slowly filling up with seasoned travellers. Parents calm their young ones and urge them to rest on the benches, while couples share a set of headphones, and a Bohemian type sits peacefully next to a large tiled flowerbox and reads Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. The one thing I notice about all of these people waiting to board their flight to Bali is that they all have the same sense of excitement and anticipation to reach the island paradise that they have clearly given a piece of their heart to.
