  • Backpack or suitcase: your responses

    We recently posted a blog about one of the most common questions a traveller must ask themselves: backpack or suitcase? You can read it here.

    We asked the question on Facebook, and got an overwhelming response. So we thought we'd lay it out for you here, and let you weigh up some of the pros and cons before making your decision. 

    Here's the responses we got, split into either backpack, suitcase or a combination of the two:

  • Top 5 travel apps to keep the kids amused

    These days, kids are so computer savvy that many of them work out how to use our new devices faster than we can! But the beauty of this is that they never stop learning. So why not make the most of the spare time on your next trip by setting them to work, and expanding their minds in the process?

  • Dress for success: Tips for packing the right clothes

    Packing the right clothing for certain destinations is important. It can mean the difference between entering a temple and missing out because your shoulders are exposed. Or having fingers that are too cold to work the camera and missing out on a breathtaking photo.

    Here are five reasons why: 

    The optimism

  • ‘Tahrir’ means freedom

    We’ve got our fair share of great images on our blog and Facebook, but few are as inspirational as these – photographs taken at Tahrir Square on Victory Day. Stirring stuff – as are the thoughts and tales of our local leaders in Egypt, which we’ll be posting here over the next few days as well.

  • The top five pleasures of Cairo

    Cairo. It’s one of the world great cities, with a street-life that swiftly sweeps you up in its merry hubbub and monumental sights that quicken the pulse of even the most world-weary traveller. We asked our Destination Manager Ryan Turner for his top to-dos when he’s in town.

  • Gauging travel experiences

    Our polar blogger Brendan van Son is currently somewhere south of the Antarctic Circle. Before he set sail from Ushuaia, he gave us the lowdown on some of his favourite travel experiences. Next week, keep an eye out for Brendan’s thoughts on his Antarctic adventure.

  • Bizarre landscapes

    All our trips get among landscapes that fascinate and capture the imagination. Some destinations, however, are just that little bit special in their ability to offer up the unexpected, where natural elements, and sometimes the hand of man, have worked overtime to create something that captivates because of its otherness. One we’ve recently added to our trips is Darvaza Crater in Turkmenistan, a mind-boggling open furnace in the middle of nowhere. Here’s Darvaza and a few of our other favourites.

  • Grand Middle East Adventure

  • A private family experience: Egypt and East Africa

    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the number of moments that take our breath away.
