Travel Blogging: Why, When, How
Aug201617

 

It seems like a new craze, but starting a travel blog is something that everyone that goes on holiday should do. Of course everyone does it for different reasons, but the point is that it can be a very rewarding thing to have and something of a hobby, that has a lot of other potential avenues. Here are all the answers to the questions that you have about how to start a travel blog.

Why

The first and main reason for thinking about how to start a travel blog is naturally to document your travels for your friends, family, colleagues and anybody else. It usually starts with this kind of audience and as a way to document a trip. Perhaps you are going to Europe for a few months and you want to keep everyone in the loop about where you are and what you are doing. For me personally, I find it very difficult to go over everything with my family after a long holiday. Of course we talk about it, but it is a great opportunity for them to read it and it gives you something to talk about.
Writing and blogging is also a really great way to preserve your memories of your trip, just like you would with a journal. I have found that in the past I had forgotten some very small details about my trips that I found again when reading over my previous blogs.

Lastly, the opportunities that come with blogging are amazing. There are opportunities for you to make some money as a guest poster on other sites, test new and exciting products and perhaps even get some free accommodation and flights to places around the world. The possibilities are almost endless!

When

The best time to start a travel blog is right now. You don’t even need to be traveling right now to do it, but it is always a useful thing to have regardless. You can talk about anything you want, it doesn’t even have to be travel. Starting a travel blog is one of those things that many people put off, but they should just take the plunge, it really isn’t expensive at all.

How

Honestly, you don’t need anything fancy to begin with. I would highly recommend finding a hosting website and getting a domain name and then installing WordPress. It is undoubtedly the best blogging platform around and it is something I use for this blog. The next step is to blog about any and everything you experience. Enjoy!

What I Love About Taking A Limousine in Toronto
Jul201628

For someone that travels so much, I find it really important to try and take the stress out of what could be a totally stressful lifestyle. Can you imagine travelling all the time and just spending half the time getting to and from the airport. I really don’t enjoy this, but I have found that taking a limousine is the ultimate solution for me and I always take a private limousine in Toronto. Here are some reasons I keep coming back

Convenient

The best thing is that the second I step off the plane I simply look for my name and find my driver, and I must say it is absolutely perfect. From that point on I no longer need to carry all of my heavy bags as the driver always helps me.

Knowledgeable and professional drivers

The job of a driver is to know things about the city he or she is in and also to be a professional. This means not only great customer service, but a huge knowledge of a city like Toronto. This is perfect for those looking for that invaluable tip that you absolutely cannot find anywhere else.

Time saving

For me as a traveler, saving time is worth so much. When you spend 4 days in Toronto, you really don’t want to be spending half the time on public transport just to get to and from the airport. These few days are precious and

You can relax

I also like that you can relax in the limousine and prepare yourself for your next step. Often when you go somewhere you tend to relax in the hotel for a little while when you get there, but with a limousine you can simply relax, drop off your things at the hotel and then get going. This is another great way that a limousine can save you a lot of time.

Reliability

I think one of the main things is that limousines are very dependable and they stake their reputation on their quality of service. Their business is dependant solely on this and if they cannot deliver reliability and good service, they will not survive. I like the fact that when I need to get to the airport early they arrive 15 minutes before I have requested them and do things like give me a courtesy call to let me know that they are there. This is great and totally stress free.

5 Ways Technology Has Changed Travel
Jul201601

 

Technology is general is just changing so much and so quickly and this has extended to the ways that we now travel. Travel is now something that requires very little interaction and we are able to do a lot without actually talking to real people, which is a stark contrast to the now obsolete ways of doing things from the past. I decided to make this blog post to talk about how technology has changed the way that we all travel.

Discounts

When we think about discounts in the past, usually these were deals organised with a real person, but this is truly something of the past. Now when we see a flight we can use things like coupon codes to provide discounts and there are even sites like My Voucher Codes, which are dedicated to all kinds of discounts.

Booking

Can you remember a time when you had to physically go to a travel agent or book a flight over the phone? This is something that has been changed forever due to the internet and booking comparison sites have become a major deal when it comes to finding flights and accommodation.  

Flights

Flights have changed forever and a lot of the time you don’t even need to physically check in. You can usually do this online and a day in advance, so there really is no rushing to get to the airport to wait in line to check in. There are also simplified bag drops that require very little interaction with people. Airports have adapted to this and many you can simply scan your digital boarding pass and head straight through security. This has made flying that much easier, with much less delays.  

Getting lost

It really is a different landscape when it comes to finding your way around different places. With smartphones equipped with GPS technology, it is very easy to navigate cities and countries that we have never been to before. There really is no excuse for getting lost now and this is in stark comparison to the typical image of a tourist walking around trying to navigate with a paper map.

Other transport

We already touched on booking sites and how they have affected travel. Another aspect of this is local transport, like trains, trams and buses. There are now websites and smartphone applications that allow you to precisely plan your journey by taking and combining different modes of transport to get you where you want to go. This has greatly helped tourists to get around faster and more efficient, allowing them to maximise the potential of their holidays.
