how-to-choose

The urge for a trip abroad is hard to ignore, whether you are a seasoned traveler or one that is just coming around to the idea of saving for a extravagant life-changing experience, and the most important question we are all faced with is where are we going to go. In many ways it is the best travel-related question of all to ask - so much nicer than, "when can I fit in a holiday?", "How am I going to afford it?" and "how do I possibly pack everything I need into that case?" - but that does not make it any easier to answer. How far from your front door do you wish to stray on this next adventure? Which of the many lands out there should you visit and what it is that you want to do when you get there? There is …

Fill Your Life

In this modern world of material goods, online shopping, Black Friday riots and competition to create faster, better and shinier gadgets, there is more and more pressure on consumers to buy items and to buy them now.

We are lead to believe that all these brand new items and pretty pieces of decor in our houses are making us happier when this "happiness" is actually rather transparent and shallow. It is not things that will make us happy in life; they may have a fleeting impression and give our lives a nice glossy sheen but their impact on our true well-being and our souls is short lived. Instead, we really need to be buying experiences - declining on those new gadgets for the chance to travel. Where you …

Tours to Spain

La Tomatina In All Its Glory Since 1945, the food fight of Spain's La Tomatina festival has been drawing in crowds of local revelers and foreign tourists who want to see the spectacle for themselves. Every year, in the last week of August, it gets bigger and better and 2015 is set to be no different as the local officials have gone out of their way to hold a safe, respectable fight as part of a much longer, vibrant week of events and celebrations. La Tomatina: the world's biggest food fight. Naturally, when people think of La Tomatina they think of the massive food fight that provides the rather messy but undeniably exciting climax of the festival.

It sounds compelling.  Search postings for an adventure of a lifetime, read reviews, book it.  Off you go. If only it were that easy.

Thailand might be more famous for its idyllic islands in the South and centuries-old cultural places such as Sukhothai or Ayutthaya, but it has also plenty to offer for those who seek adrenalin-infused adventures.

Where to find? Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, central Thailand. 2. Tham Lod Cave The cave is located in northern Thailand, close to the …
