If you are planning a lifetime
trip that includes long trips by plane, you might try to find out how you can
manage long flights and still feel awake, refreshed, and ready for your new
adventure. But, as we all know, taking long flights is draining and tiring
because we can rarely get a good night’s sleep while sitting almost fully
upright, crammed in between two other people and dragged up by coughing people,
crying babies and people people sweep you in the hallway. It’s amazing we can’t
just pass out for a day once we get to the hotel room.
But did you know that now we have
an excellent alternative to airlines that offer truly horizontal beds that make
you sleep well while lying completely flat? Now when I say completely flat and
horizontal, I’m not talking about a steep backrest combined with footrests,
what I’m talking about is a flat bed like your bed with comfortable pillows and
blankets. Wear your face mask and put on your earmuffs and you will have sweet
dreams while flying through the clouds and wake up refreshed and ready to leave
as soon as you touch the ground. Getting good quality sleep on your flight can
make your trip much more productive and enjoyable which makes it worth the
But I know you must be wondering
about how expensive this option is and whether it is only available for those
who can afford First Class. Unfortunately, most of them are only available in First
Class, but that doesn’t mean you can’t afford it. One thought might be that it
might be useful to stretch your budget to include a sleeping chair to help
ensure you get the most out of your trip by being energized by deep sleep.
However, … Read more
Love to travel but don’t have the
thousands of dollars to do it?
You can get luxury travel on a
shoestring budget by planning your vacation or trip just a bit more carefully.
Read a few of these tips, and
then go on your well-deserved getaway without burning a hole in your pocket.
Always remember: When planning
your trip, timing is key.
For example, school vacation
weeks are the worst times to plan trips. Most parents have no choice but to
travel at these high-peak seasons, so school vacation periods in any country
are always going to be crowded. The airfare is always sky high – no pun
If you’ve traveled during these
peak seasons, you may noticed that coach seats during a school vacation week
could cost you more money than a first class ticket during the off-season. So
remember, unless you MUST travel during these peak periods, avoid winter and
spring breaks at all costs.
Here’s another important tip:
Regardless of how you decide to book your luxury travel arrangements – either
through a travel agent or through an online travel website – make sure that you
know exactly who you are working with. For example, your best bet to save on a
hotel and car rental package is probably going to be with ‘s “name your
own price” option. However, is not
the best choice for international airline travel. You’d be better off with an
agent. Either way you go, try to use the same travel agent or service. This
makes sure that you build a solid relationship with the company you’re dealing
with. If you are loyal to them, they will be loyal to you. Always remember,
they want your business.
Think about how frequent flier
programs work: if you choose their airline consistently, they’ll … Read more

trend is making many of us with young children to start reliving our childhood
days when we had to travel to most places with our parents by car.

day your kids love to travel. Let your family vacation take-off plan match this
time of the day. For some of us, our kids don’t travel well in the morning;
they do much better in the noon towards evening
parents like to travel when the little ones are going to be having their
day sleep. Another strategy is to wake the kiddies very early, about 4am, and
put them in the car and get under way. That way the children will cuddle down and
sleep for several hours before waking up and wanting food or drinks.
2. Package things that
will keep kids busy while travels last-DVD and CD players inclusive: It’s good
you stock your car with things that will keep your kids busy while the car
