If you’ve ever seriously trekked in the wilderness for days, then you understand the difficulty of carrying all of the equipment you may need without entirely burdening one’s self with the excessive weight and overall burden of a full pack, plus essentials. When you consider how many items are needed for a simple 3-day trek and stay in the wilderness, it cam become daunting… Imagine carrying your clothes, toiletries, food, cook wear, tent, sleeping bag, axe, medical supplies, pack, boots, etc. And that’s keeping it to the basics, because when you’re out in the deep wild world, you never know what may happen, so you must be prepared for anything.
Going on a trip with your kids can be a really rewarding experience and can give them experiences and memories that will shape their childhood and last a lifetime. I’m sure we all have a particular trip or holiday that we took as a child that will always stay with us. Whether it’s the English seaside, the lakes and mountains of Europe, the cities of the USA or the distant shores of Australia or Asia, there are so many fantastic holidays to go on around the world, and nowhere has to be limited because of where it is! Campervanning can mean you need to consider these With this in mind, wherever your budget and your heart takes you, there’s always extra things to consider when you’re taking the kids with you…
Optimum protection of digital devices has become a hot topic in the travel world, and as the iPhones, tablets, and phones advance, the price point ramps up and equally does the risk of traveling with such a powerful, yet expensive technology. When I started backpacking, I’d take a bulky, heavy laptop and a basic cell phone that can take alternating sim cards, so depending where I was in the world I would be able to call home. But now, laptops are thin and lightweight. Yet, even more amazing, is just how powerful and versatile the tiniest devices are.
The Digital Nomad lifestyle is all the craze. After all, who wouldn’t want to run a business from a beachside bar in Bali. Before embarking on a career and lifestyle change, it is vital to consider all angles, which, for U.S. citizens, includes tax obligations. As a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder, you are required to file a tax return declaring your worldwide annually, no matter where you reside.
With the release of the new iPhone 8 and X, the buzz around the travel world has been louder than it has in some years. Why is that? Because Apple has continually reinvented the way people go about their everyday life, business, and travels. From changing the way we wake up, learn, communicate and be entertained, the new models of personal devices are here to stay in a big way. When I travel, I rarely go anywhere, even deep into the woods, without my own personal device. But that’s not to say that I let it control my life, and/or happiness, because I don’t. And though phones have shown to become addictive and lifestyle changing (sometimes more toward the negative experience), it doesn’t have to be that way. Like with all new technologies that redefine the way we live and interact with our world, we must find a balance.
When I’m traveling, I always carry my iPhone on me, no matter what sort of trip, no matter what country, and it doesn’t matter whether I have service or not. Because the iPhone is my personal device where I work, I write (sometimes) and I take photos (when my full camera system isn’t necessary). It not only holds a great deal of information and media, but it also provides the savvy modern traveler with all the tools he needs to work on the fly, anywhere in the world. When I backpack Europe, I no longer take my camera to every location, often leaving it in my rucksack. Space and weight are big concerns for the backpacker lifestyle, but the burden improves with such a dynamic multifunctional device.
