As we begin to enjoy more freedoms, we thought we should share these travel tips with you! It’s been a while since we last travelled, but we firmly believe that travel is a valuable and eye-opening experience, that everyone should be able to enjoy. With these travel tips in mind, let’s get back to our favourite pastime: exploring the world!

Check local safety measures
One thing is for sure, the pandemic has touched also every corner of the globe. Therefore, each country will have its own safety precautions in place. As restrictions and precautions vary from country to country, be sure to check before you travel. Another travel tip to keep in mind is that you might be required to wear a mask in public places or at sightseeing hotspots, depending on where you travel. Therefore, be prepared with a stash of masks. You’ll also need to follow the airline’s safety rules whilst travelling, which might include wearing a mask on the plane and taking the required hygiene precautions.
Tips for flying: beat jet lag
Many of us have been stuck at home, or at least stuck in our own country, for quite some time. As we prepare to return to travel, arriving in a new time zone has the potential to leave you feeling a little more frazzled than usual! Jet lag is the feeling of tiredness you experience when your body clock is knocked off balance after travelling to a time zone very different from your own.
You can alleviate this cranky, tired feeling by slowly adapting to your destination time zone before you travel. Alternatively, plan your trip so that your flight arrives in the morning. A tip for flying is to try and sleep on the plane if you’re arriving at your destination early in the day. Once you’ve touched down, be sure to get plenty of sunlight. Sunlight is key to kick-starting your circadian rhythm, so spend time outside first thing every morning. Furthermore, try not to fall asleep until sundown. Follow these travel tips and after a day or two, you’ll beat jet lag!
So, things have been pretty quiet recently around the worlds most famous sights. Over the past year, many of the worlds most famous landmarks have been completely empty. This is a world away from the busy crowds we’re used to! As we begin to travel again, be sure to go sightseeing and take advantage of the uncharacteristically quiet landmarks. From Machu Picchu to the Colosseum, the crowds will take a little while longer to return in full force. Combined with restrictions on capacity at many places, you can enjoy your bucket-list sights in their full splendour, without jostling with selfie-sticks and large tour groups! You might not have thought of this travel tip, but keep this in mind when choosing where to go on your next getaway. What better reason to make your next trip a trip of a lifetime!
