Qantas will introduce a new fee for unaccompanied children flying on the airline as a result of a rising number flying alone and the increasing supervision costs involved.

The airline on Friday advised travel agents it will charge $50 per booking on domestic and regional flights and $90 on international flights for children aged 5 to 11 who are not travelling with a parent, guardian, nominated adult or sibling over the age of 15.

On international flights of more than six hours, children must be at least six years old to travel alone.

Customers aged 12 to 15 can request to travel as an unaccompanied child without charge. The new fees will take effect on November 3. Bookings ticketed before then will not incur the extra charge.

“Qantas recognises the importance of providing children travelling alone with the highest levels of comfort and support,” a spokeswoman said. “Given the increasing demand for this extra support, and the increasing costs involved, we cannot continue to provide this service completely free of charge. This change brings Qantas in line with many of its domestic and international competitors.”

Qantas has been looking to cut costs and increase revenue to help it return to a profit in the first half of the financial year.

Rival Virgin Australia already charges $40 per sector on domestic flights and $60 per sector on short-haul international flights for unaccompanied children aged 5 to 11. That means the fees for a return flight on the same booking would be higher than those charged by Qantas.

If the Qantas fees are not pre-paid ahead of arrival at the airport, they will double to $100 for domestic bookings and $180 for international bookings. The fee is applied per booking, not per flight. That means a return ticket including multiple sectors will attract the same fee as a single flight.

Qantas said the extra services it provides to unaccompanied children include additional administration at airports, immigration and security processing for international flights, onboard assistance and a ground staff escort at the airport for connecting flights.

In some ports, it also offers dedicated waiting rooms for unaccompanied children to provide secure care.

“The introduction of an Unaccompanied Minor Supervision Fee will assist in recovering some of the additional costs of the extra services and facilities provided for the comfort and safety of children travelling without a parent or guardian,” the spokeswoman said.

Qantas, unlike some other carriers, does not limit the number of unaccompanied children that can be on a single flight.

Recommended consent letter for children travelling abroad, travelling alone.#Travelling #alone

Recommended consent letter for children travelling abroad

We strongly recommend that Canadian children carry a consent letter if they are travelling abroad alone, with only one parent/guardian, with friends or relatives or with a group. For the purposes of this consent letter, a Canadian child is defined as anyone who is under the age of majority (18 or 19, depending on the province or territory of residence).

A consent letter is not a legal requirement in Canada, but it can simplify travel for Canadian children, as it may be requested by immigration authorities when entering or leaving a foreign country or by Canadian officials when re-entering Canada. The letter demonstrates that Canadian children have permission to travel abroad from parents or guardians who are not accompanying them.

We recommend that you talk to a lawyer about the legal issues that apply to you and your children’s unique situation, particularly if your parenting arrangement has special terms governing international travel. Carrying a consent letter does not guarantee that children will be allowed to enter or leave a country, as every country has its own entry and exit requirements.

For additional information about entry and exit requirements for Canadian children travelling alone, with only one parent or with another accompanying person, see our Travel Advice and Advisories or contact the nearest embassy or consulate of the destination country.

We recommend that the letter be signed by every non-accompanying person or organization with the legal right to make major decisions for the child, including anyone with:

  • custody rights,
  • guardianship rights, or
  • parental authority (in Quebec only)

We also recommend that the letter be signed by any non-accompanying parent who has access to the child.

Consult justice.gc.ca if you have questions about parenting terminology.

We encourage you to use our interactive form to write a consent letter that fits your specific situation. You can save information entered in this form. However, this data is not collected or stored by Global Affairs Canada. Click on the following link to create a personalized consent letter:

10 Benefits Of Travelling Alone, travelling alone.#Travelling #alone

10 Benefits Of Travelling Alone

Travelling alone

Filiz loves reading self-growth and spiritual books. Full Bio

Travelling alone

Travelling itself is so beneficial for all of us because it simply expands our horizons and makes us realise the importance of exploring and not living in one place all the time. Travelling on your own has also great advantages for you. If you want to go and travel alone at least once in your life, here are the top reasons why you need to do it:

1. You will get to know yourself better

Once you are out there on the road on your own you will be faced with decisions you need to make, fears you need to overcome and discover your true self and how much you are capable of. Travelling exposes you to raw experiences where you get to know the person inside you, that little kid that always wanted to travel, wander, expand and grow as a human being through exploring different places around the world.

Once you are on your own, you will discover the importance of following and listening to your own heart. You will focus much better and enjoy the experience. You will live and feel now. A destination far away might help you find answers about your true purpose in life and what is it you are really meant to do.

2. It will get you out of your comfort zone

Going to unknown places and destinations will challenge you to learn how to rely on yourself at difficult times. Being away from the comfortable bubble of your home will challenge you in many different ways and test your patience. Only by putting yourself out there, you will be able to explore this beautiful planet and discover many new and exciting places.

You might be challenged to explain where you are going to a local person or do hiking for hours in the mountains. Both of these experiences will test your ability to overcome obstacles, challenge you and help you grow as an individual.

3. It is cheaper

When you travel on your own it is much easier to keep up with your budget because you are the one who decides where and what to eat. That also means that it is much easier to save up money for other things such as trying an adventurous sport or travelling to a distant island.

4. You will make new friends easier

Being a solo traveller makes it much easier to interact with the local people and make some new friendships. The truth is that the locals are much more interested in what someone travelling on his or her own is doing in their country and are more likely to help you out and could be also more open and engaging.

5. You get to choose your own route

When you are on your own, you get the opportunity to plan your own route and the places you want to visit. When you are travelling with other people, often you have to compromise going to some places so that everyone is happy about it. Travelling on you own means that you get to choose the extra activities you want to do and plan your trip in a way that benefits you most.

6. You will learn how to rely on yourself

Travelling to other countries in the world will show you the importance of relying on yourself in difficult situations. You are the one and most important person in your life so make sure you learn how to trust your own heart, take decisions and make your own choices. That will help you further in life when it comes to taking an important step in your life because you will realise that it is you who creates the reality around you and it is significant to respect your own needs.

    Advantage of Travelling Around the World

    Travelling around the world

    Travelling is a great thing to do, especially now. Summer is a good time of year to start a new adventure or see new parts of the world. But what exactly is travelling? Simply stated, travelling is a process of getting from one place to another.

    Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer. Are you familiar with the saying, “The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page”?

    There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesn’t have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the real world. Travelling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.

    There are many advantages to travelling around the world. Here are a few to think about:

    Travelling around the world

    You will enjoy the Adventure

    The reason why many people travel is because they love an adventure. There are several different types of adventures to choose from when you travel. An example of this is travelling to different beaches; some people enjoy diving while others prefer surfing.

    Wherever you will go, you will make memories of your adventure which will last a lifetime. You can relive the enjoyment again and again as you look back on the great adventure you had when travelling.

    You get to know different People and Places

    The world contains lots of countries and not all people are the same. When travelling, you get the opportunity to meet different people from different places. In life, one of the most important social skills we learn is how to interact and communicate with people who are different than we are.

    All people have their own way of communicating, and not all ways are effective. Some people tend to have problems expressing themselves because their social abilities are not developed. Travelling and interacting with a variety of people can help build or improve social skills with very little effort.

    Not only does travelling improve communication skills, it can actually boost self-confidence, since ideas and opinions are able to be more clearly expressed, shared and understood.

    Getting accustomed to different cultures

    Different cultures exist everywhere. As a traveler, it’s your duty to respect the culture of the people you visit. Some places have more modern cultures while others have traditional beliefs and customs.

    Experiencing different cultures can also be enlightening and educational; many travelers look for places to visit whose cultures are different from their own. Learning about other’s lives and customs deepens our understanding of ourselves and of our world. It teaches us respect and is humbling in many cases.

    Learning the culture of different peoples can reveal how people see themselves in a group. Culture may be defined as a total way of life, created by a group of people. It is then passed down from one generation to the next.

    You tend to see different places that you haven’t seen before

    For many people, the main reason for travelling is to see the world. Travelling can be a dream come true! It allows you to have adventures in new places and see things you never thought possible.

    Travelling around the world

    Relaxation

    Stress is a natural part of life; in fact it helps us to survive! But when we have too much stress in our lives, it can be dangerous to our health. Many things bring about stress: work, family, relationships, change in health. Even positive change brings on stress.

    There are lots of activities that can help reduce stress and tension. One way to reduce stress and anxiety is by relaxing or by doing activities you enjoy. Travelling can bring joy to life, especially in stressful times. It can be one of the best ways to remove stress, reduce tension and restore balance.

    The first travelling exhibition of objects from Auschwitz is set to go on tour in the hope it will become “a warning cry” to future generations.

    The exhibition is due to visit 14 cities in the US and Europe, and will be made up of more than 600 objects from the Nazi German camp in Poland.

    It will include a freight wagon, like the ones that transported people to the camp during World War Two.

    More than a million people, mostly Jews, were killed at Auschwitz.

    The items on show are not just the belongings of the victims – which also included Poles, Sinti and Roma and Soviet prisoners of war – but also items from those who ran the camp, the German SS.

    The exhibition, which is entitled “Not long ago. Not far away”, will have its first stop in Madrid, Spain, before the end of the year.

    It says it aims to reach people who may not be able to make it to the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum, and act as a reminder of what happened during the Holocaust.

    “Today, the world is moving in uncertain directions,” Dr Piotr Cywiński, director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum, said.

    “That is why we need to rely more and more on the strong foundations of our memory. Auschwitz and the tragedy of the Shoah [Hebrew for Holocaust] are part of those foundations, which cannot be bypassed in creating a new face of the world.”

    He added: “Nothing can replace a visit to the authentic site of the biggest crime of the 20th Century, but this exhibition, which people in many countries will have the opportunity to see, can become a great warning cry for us all against building the future on hatred, racism, anti-Semitism and bottomless contempt for another human being.”

    However, the museum has also been at pains to play down fears of trying to profit from the exhibition, which is being organised with the Spanish company, Musealia.

    Luis Ferreiro, the company’s director, told the New York Times the exhibition had cost $1.5m (£1.15m) so far, acknowledging they needed to “earn an income to sustain ourselves and keep the enterprise going”.

    “Our goal is to focus on larger social goals such as enlightenment and education,” he added.

    Bedkits

    Each $35 donation provides a bedkit that consists of a mat or mattress, pillow, sheet, blanket, mosquito net, clothes outfit, towel and school supplies. Bedkit contents vary from country to country depending upon local needs.

    Sleeping Children Around the World distributes bedkits to children in a ratio of 50% girls and 50% boys, who are aged 6 to 12, and are from any culture and any religion. Every child should be able to get a good night’s sleep. The contents of a bedkit vary from country to country, but always contain bedding and a mosquito net, clothing and school supplies.

    Bedkits are manufactured or purchased overseas by trustworthy organizations and individuals who use their local knowledge and expertise to pick the best bedkit items for the children living in that area. All bedkits are assembled in the country of distribution to eliminate shipping costs and to stimulate the economy.

    “As a sleep researcher, clinician and public health advocate who believes passionately in the value of a good night’s sleep for children’s health, well-being and success, I celebrate the incredible work of Sleeping Children Around the World. I have been fortunate enough to see the real and tangible impact this organization makes on children and families’ lives as a Traveling Volunteer in Tanzania and Kolkata India, and cannot say enough good things about their dedication and drive.”

  • Visas, migration and citizenship, travelling australia.#Travelling #australia

    Visas, migration and citizenship

    The Immigration Section of the Australian High Commission receives and processes visa and citizenship applications for people intending to travel to Australia. Travellers of all nationalities, except citizens of Australia and New Zealand, will need to obtain a visa to travel to Australia.

    Entry into the Australian High Commission for visa, immigration and citizenship matters is by appointment only. To make an appointment, you must call or email the Immigration Section.

    The information on this website is meant as supplementary, country-specific information to that contained in the website www.border.gov.au

    Visa finder

    To find out which visa option is for you, see: Find a Visa

    Travelling australia

    The Australian Government has announced it will enhance the way visa and citizenship services are delivered using the latest digital technologies. For more information visit the Department Immigration and Border Protection s website.

    Beware of Visa Scams

    The Australian High Commission in Nairobi has become aware of several visa scams. Please be cautious of any person offering guaranteed Australian visas.

    Country Coverage

    The Australian High Commission in Nairobi provides Visa and Immigration services to residents of Kenya and 21 other countries in east, central and west Africa. The Australian High Commission is also responsible for the Refugee and Humanitarian program for all sub-Saharan Africa.

    For more information including how to contact us see: Immigration Services

    Student visa applications are now processed by the Student hub at the Australian High Commission, Pretoria. See: African Student Hub

    Visa Application

    As the Australian High Commission in Nairobi covers a large area for immigration services, there are several ways a visa application can be lodged. See: Making a Visa Application

    Applicants in Uganda biometric collection

    From June 2016, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection has been collecting biometrics from clients applying for Australian visas in Uganda. All applicants, regardless of nationality, who are in Uganda at the time of making a visa application to enter Australia, will be required to provide their biometrics in person unless otherwise excluded or exempted from doing so under Australian Government policy.

    Visa applicants in Uganda who mail their applications to the Australian High Commission in Kenya, will be sent a letter requiring them to attend the Australian Biometric Collection Centre (ABCC) in person to provide their biometrics. Applicants lodging their visas online may be sent a letter informing them that they need to attend the ABCC in person to provide their biometrics.

    The ABCC will charge a service fee for the collection of biometrics. Please see the Service Delivery Partner (SDP) website below for more details.

    The details of the ABCC in Uganda are as follows:

    Australian Biometrics Collection Centre

    Block A, Victoria Courts

    Old Kira Road, Bukoto

    Opening hours : 8:30am – 3:30pm, Monday -Friday

    To avoid unnecessary delays, you are encouraged to make an appointment to provide your biometrics. Appointments can be made through the:

    Australian Biometrics Collection Centre (ABCC) website: https://au.tlscontact.com/

    Call Centre: +27 (0) 21 401 7500 (international call rates apply)

    Visa Application Charges

    For information on Visa charges click here

    Citizenship Fees

    For information on Citizenship Fees click here

    Processing Times

    Processing time for individual applications will vary and is dependent on a number of factors, including the complexity of the case, the planning levels and priority for the visa category and the number of applications lodged. Every year the Australian Government sets the overall migration program as part of the Budget process. See: Nairobi Processing Times

    Documents in support of a Visa Application

    It is important to include information and documentation in support of your visa application. The document checklist provides you with advice on what you need to provide depending on your individual circumstances. See: Application Document Checklist

    US airport security: How Trump s latest travel and laptop ban

    US airport security: How Trump s latest travel and laptop ban has changed travelling to America

    Our travel correspondent explains what the new rules will mean for airline passengers heading for the US

    • Simon Calder
    • @SimonCalder
    • Thursday 26 October 2017 06:24 BST

    The Independent Travel

    Passengers flying to America on a wide range of non-US airlines face additional checks in what Washington calls a “shared commitment to raising the bar on global aviation security”. The measures will include a personal interview for every traveller before they are allowed on the plane. This is what passengers need to know about what is changing.

    Why are the US authorities demanding changes?

    The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is convinced that various terrorist groups are targeting aircraft flying to America. The organisation says: “It is imperative to raise the baseline of global aviation security.”

    On a typical day, around one-third of a million passengers fly to America on 180 non-US airlines, from 280 airports around the world.

    The new measures flow from the Trump Administration’s sudden decision in March to impose a ban on laptops and other electronic devices bigger than a mobile phone on flights from 10 Middle Eastern and North African airports to the US. The UK immediately followed with a similar ban.

    By the summer, it became clear that Washington wanted to extend the electronics ban to all US-bound flights. The European Union was in the forefront of efforts to persuade the Americans that such a move could itself present a safety issue, with large numbers of potentially unstable lithium batteries being carried in the hold.

    The US agreed not to impose a ban if a range of additional checks are made at “Last Point of Departure Airports”.

    Some of the measures will not be immediately evident. They include enhanced surveillance of aircraft on the ground, and of the departure gate area; the US is known to be concerned about the possibility of an “insider threat” from an airport employee handing an explosive device to a passenger who has cleared security. Sniffer dogs are being deployed in greater numbers. In addition, the DHS recommends that “passengers flying to the United States prepare for a more extensive screening process”. Starting on Thursday 26 October, airlines are introducing new security measures, which could include steps such as “explosive trace detection” checks and will certainly involve a personal interview, of the kind that already takes place for travellers on US carriers.

    For passengers with hold baggage, this will take place before check-in; for travellers with hand-luggage only, it will happen at the departure gate. It is, of course, additional to the existing airport security screening that all passengers pass through.

    That depends on how interesting you are to the security staff conducting the interview. They will have access to data such as when you bought the ticket, and can examine your passport to identify previous patterns.

    A family flying to Florida on a holiday booked months earlier may be barely aware of any kind of interview having taken place. Security staff will be much more interested in single travellers who booked very late and whose passport shows evidence of travel to countries in North Africa and the Middle East.

    Will I need to fill in any more forms?

    At present a typical traveller to the US has to enrol online for Esta, the Electronic System for Travel Authorization, and an alternative to an American visa. In addition they must provide Advance Passenger Information (API) and Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD), which will be requested by the airline.

    Some carriers are believed to be requiring passengers to complete a short paper questionnaire. But security staff will have access to the API and SFPD, and will be conducting the interview based on that.

    Does this amount to “profiling”?

    The concept of tighter security for certain individuals is highly controversial, because it is thought that young Muslim men will be singled out for more intrusive investigation. What is being introduced is “behavioural analysis”, where a passenger’s demeanour and travel background are of interest, rather than their gender, religion and race.

    Do I need to get to the airport earlier – and could my flight be delayed?

    Given the extra steps that will be involved, from check-in to boarding the aircraft, it is probably wise to allow a little extra time. Planes will not be allowed to depart until security staff are certain there is no threat, which could delay some flights. The European airport most affected is London Heathrow, which has far more US-bound departures than any other.

    Will it put people off travelling to the US?

    Some may be deterred, but extra security including some personal interviews have been a feature of travel to America since the Lockerbie bombing in 1988. Since then the number of travellers to the US has steadily increased.

    10 Benefits Of Travelling Alone, travelling alone.#Travelling #alone

    10 Benefits Of Travelling Alone

    Travelling alone

    Filiz loves reading self-growth and spiritual books. Full Bio

    Travelling alone

    Travelling itself is so beneficial for all of us because it simply expands our horizons and makes us realise the importance of exploring and not living in one place all the time. Travelling on your own has also great advantages for you. If you want to go and travel alone at least once in your life, here are the top reasons why you need to do it:

    1. You will get to know yourself better

    Once you are out there on the road on your own you will be faced with decisions you need to make, fears you need to overcome and discover your true self and how much you are capable of. Travelling exposes you to raw experiences where you get to know the person inside you, that little kid that always wanted to travel, wander, expand and grow as a human being through exploring different places around the world.

    Once you are on your own, you will discover the importance of following and listening to your own heart. You will focus much better and enjoy the experience. You will live and feel now. A destination far away might help you find answers about your true purpose in life and what is it you are really meant to do.

    2. It will get you out of your comfort zone

    Going to unknown places and destinations will challenge you to learn how to rely on yourself at difficult times. Being away from the comfortable bubble of your home will challenge you in many different ways and test your patience. Only by putting yourself out there, you will be able to explore this beautiful planet and discover many new and exciting places.

    You might be challenged to explain where you are going to a local person or do hiking for hours in the mountains. Both of these experiences will test your ability to overcome obstacles, challenge you and help you grow as an individual.

    3. It is cheaper

    When you travel on your own it is much easier to keep up with your budget because you are the one who decides where and what to eat. That also means that it is much easier to save up money for other things such as trying an adventurous sport or travelling to a distant island.

    4. You will make new friends easier

    Being a solo traveller makes it much easier to interact with the local people and make some new friendships. The truth is that the locals are much more interested in what someone travelling on his or her own is doing in their country and are more likely to help you out and could be also more open and engaging.

    5. You get to choose your own route

    When you are on your own, you get the opportunity to plan your own route and the places you want to visit. When you are travelling with other people, often you have to compromise going to some places so that everyone is happy about it. Travelling on you own means that you get to choose the extra activities you want to do and plan your trip in a way that benefits you most.

    6. You will learn how to rely on yourself

    Travelling to other countries in the world will show you the importance of relying on yourself in difficult situations. You are the one and most important person in your life so make sure you learn how to trust your own heart, take decisions and make your own choices. That will help you further in life when it comes to taking an important step in your life because you will realise that it is you who creates the reality around you and it is significant to respect your own needs.

    9 Wonderful Benefits of Traveling, travelling alone.#Travelling #alone

    9 Wonderful Benefits Of Traveling

    Travelling alone

    Adam Siddiq is the Host of The Soulfully Optimized Life podcast and a Peak Performance Coach and Leader for Millennials Leaders, CEOs and StartUps on a mission to make the world a greater place. Full Bio

    Travelling alone

    If there was one piece of advice I have for people today to experience more joy in life, it is to travel more. I don’t mean taking vacations or going on pre-planning trips, I mean making the journey out to somewhere you’ve never gone before with an open schedule, to let life show you what opportunities were waiting for you that you couldn’t have even imaged before.

    Traveling is wonderful in many ways. It captures us with a sense of wanderlust and has us longing for more destinations to visit, cultures to experience, food to eat, and people to meet. As amazing as traveling is, most of us think we need to wait until our later years to really explore a lot of the world. I want to inspire you to travel more now and I will do that by sharing 9 wonderful benefits of traveling so you can take the leap of faith you’ve been waiting for.

    1. You’ll find a new purpose

    “To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” – Danny Kaye

    Traveling is an amazingly underrated investment in yourself. As you travel you’re exposed to more new people, cultures, and lifestyles than you are living in your homeland all the time. With all the newness in your life, you’re also opened to new insights, ways of seeing the world and living, which often gives people a new purpose for their lives. If you’re feeling stuck on what your purpose is, what you want to do with your life, the career or educational path you want to pursue, go travel…you might just be surprised about what you discover as a new sense of life purpose and direction.

    2. You’ll appreciate your home more

    “All travel has it’s advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” – Samuel Johnson

    When we spend time away from home, especially in a place where we don’t have the same luxuries readily available to us…like a village in Fiji that runs without electricity…we become more aware and appreciative for the luxuries we have back at home. I remember a time where I visited my cousin in Argentina after she’d been living there for about a year. I was visiting her around Christmas time and brought her the new Harry Potter book along with some basic goods that you can find almost anywhere in Los Angeles. She was over joyous and filled with gratitude, like she just got the greatest gift in the world. In other parts of the world, like India and Ethiopia, people don’t have as much access to clean drinking water…especially from what’s readily available on tap. Traveling through areas like that really make us appreciate what we do have, and often can spark the movement of something to support people living there experience a greater quality of life.

    3. You’ll realize that your home is more than just where you grew up

    “No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” – Lin Yutang

    The more we travel, the more we realize that our home is so much more than the town, city, state and even country that we’ve grown up in; we realize that our home is the world, this planet, and we become more conscious of how we can harmoniously live and support one another. And in that knowingness and state of consciousness, people like those supporting the movement of charity:water come into fruition.

    4. You’ll realize how little you actually knew about the world

    “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine

    There’s concept, and then there’s experience. When we travel, we may notice that some of the things we’ve heard about the world end up being very different than what we were indoctrinated and conditioned to believe. Many of the initial myths that get dispelled are often about traveling itself. Where you once may have thought it was too expensive and dangerous, you may realize how you can actually save more on your lifestyle expenses traveling the world than you do living at home. You may also realize how kind and friendly strangers can be, and how they are even willing to take care of you with a place to sleep at night. Beyond that, you have the whole world to learn about with every place you discover, every person you meet and every culture you experience.

    5. You’ll realize that we all share similar needs

    “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

    Tony Robbins has said many times that no matter what your background is, all human beings share 6 common needs. As you travel more, you notice the truth of this even more…and as that happens, you are more adept in being able to relate to people regardless of their background.

    6. You’ll realize that it’s extremely easy to make friends

    “A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill

    One of the first things I learned from traveling solo is how easy it is to make friends. Something magical happens in how people can show up more raw and real when they’re out of their conditioned environment and open to express themselves without feeling judged. That rawness and realness ends up inspiring others to be authentic, and that’s how you can become best friends with people when you’ve only known them for a few hours.

    7. You’ll experience the interconnectedness of humanity

    “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou

    Just as we notice how we share similar needs, how our perspective of our home expands, and how we become close friends with others from different backgrounds and cultures, we begin to realize how we are all connected. This state of awareness is a jump in consciousness, and what I mean by that is in the way we perceive the world, the life experience and ourselves. Ken Wilber speaks about consciousness as spiral dynamics, each level of consciousness inclusive of the one previous. I feel that traveling often helps people experience a world-centric view of consciousness, and some even on that’s integrated…able to see, understand and accept all states of consciousness, and utilizing the gifts of whatever is best and most appropriate in the moment.

    8. You’ll experience serendipity and synchronicity

    “Traveling is one of the easiest ways to become aware of the magic that weaves all of creation together through serendipity and synchronicity with perfect timing.” – Adam Siddiq

    Serendipity: luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for. And here’s Synchronicity: coincidence of events that appear meaningfully related but do not seem to be causally connected

    I’m going to share one story of how I experienced serendipity and synchronicity in Spain. It was early in the morning and it was time for me to return the motorcycle my friend had rented with me yesterday. She left very early in the morning on a flight home so it was my responsibility to return it. I woke up to a beautiful sunny morning in Spain and went out to the street to start the motorcycle. I started to drive, forgetting that the chain was left on the wheel. Having no previous experience with motorcycles, I realized I was in a predicament. Two minutes later, a car drove and parked behind me. I had a feeling that someone in that vehicle knew how to fix motorcycles and was going to help me remove the chain so I could return the motorcycle. As they got out, I spoke to them in Spanish, telling them what happened. One of them motioned the other to go on. He mentioned they were mechanics and here for a job, and that he could help me get the chain off…and he did. I thanked him and he seemed gratified to help a fellow soul on their way. In that moment, I realized that no matter what…the world is here to support me, which leads us to the last benefit of traveling.

    9. You’ll realize life is a wonderful gift

    “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

    Life is a wonderful gift. It really is, and as we travel and experience more of the world and life, we often become overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for all the beautiful moments we enjoyed and people we’ve shared them with. More often than not, this is a realization that we can experience and take action from now while we’re still alive with energy rather than stacking up regrets by the time we’re on our death bed. Rather than waiting until you’re saying “I wish I had”, live so you can say “I’m glad I did”.

    TIME. IT S THE CURRENCY OF LIFE.

    But unlike money, you can t make more. You can, however, maximize each and every second you spend. Lifehack s mission is to help you make enormous gains with the limited time you have. With the insights we provide, your seconds can be worth hours, and days can be worth years in value.

    The Train Station

    Trains In Thailand – Below are the quoted rates for non air-conditioned and air-conditioned trains with sleeping berth. At night pillows and blankets are provided. Sprinter trains are Special Express Trains without berth, but with reclining chair and air-conditioned. Trains in Thailand are clean and mostly punctual.

    There are three different types of service.

    First Class contains one small compartment for two persons. This class is not available on most trains and tends to get booked out first. The compartment is a private air-conditioning compartment consisting of two sleeping berths, a washing basin. The berth is a cushion, pillow and blanket which are comfortable. Only common toilet is available (no private toilet). To own a private compartment of your own while travelling alone, then two first-class tickets must be purchased.

    Second Class is the most preferred choice. It is only a common compartment. Private compartment is not available. Each berth has its own curtain, cushion, pillow and blanket as that of the first class. Fan or air-conditioning are available in either seat or sleeper form. Fan cooled sections tend to get a little hot at night and air-conditioning is the more comfortable of the two. The price is higher for the lower berth than the upper berth.

    Third Class not quite as hectic as perhaps India but suitable for only the more hardened traveller. No pre-booking is possible in this class.

    Sprinter Train – is a special Express train with air-conditioning and comfortable seats of reclining chairs, similar to that of the coach. There is no sleeping berth.

    All classes of train have refreshment facilities and most have full catering cars with cooked meals at reasonable rates. At practically every station food vendors offer local delights from fried chicken to more exotic local delicacies.

    Sleepers (Information)

    First class sleepers consist of two full size bunk beds whilst second class sleepers are assembled from two facing seats to form the bottom or lower bunk. The upper bunk is a stow-a-way bed which is unlocked when the beds are made up. All beds use fresh cotton sheets, pillow with cases and laundered towel-like blankets.

    Beds are arranged by the train staff at around 9:00 pm and they are stored away again at 08:00 am when travelling.

    In both classes the beds are around 2m (6.5 ft) in length.

    Safety

    Travel police actively patrol every train and the incidents of robberies etc is extremely rate. The service generally has a good safety record throughout the kingdom and the train people of Thailand are generally very professional about their given tasks.

    Does Travelling Heal a Broken Heart, WORLD OF WANDERLUST, travelling the

    Does Travelling Heal a Broken Heart?

    Travelling the world

    Time for a story from the heart.

    Last year I embarked on a year-long journey around the world across 6 continents, 50-something countries, and with just myself, my suitcase, and my camera to document every single minute of every single day. It changed my life, my understanding of the world and my approach to others, so much that I decided to write about it and share my experience with readers in my book A Year to Myself .

    I left my home country broken. Confused. Lost. And at a complete crossroads in my life. But I felt a certain sense of guilt then as I do now writing this, as I have been incredibly fortunate to have grown up in the Western World, in a system where my health, education, and society has always been held in high regard. So I didn t understand nor could I justify: why was I so miserable?

    I had just completed my university degree, been through a breakup that left me convinced I was destined for eternal singledom and 20+ cats (spoiler: I met the love of my life a year after this yearlong solo journey around the world right back at home, would you believe!), but I just didn t know who I was anymore. I didn t know my purpose. I didn t even know I had one!

    So I took A Year to Myself on a quest find myself, my purpose, and my happiness. From the title I m sure you re wondering how it all ends Does travelling heal a broken heart? Here s your answers based purely on my findings as a guinea pig who took the year-long solo adventure to find out:

    Travelling the world Travelling the world

    Above are two photographs of me: one taken at the start of my year of adventures (left) and one taken just after (right). One girl, two completely different people from left-right.

    There are a few obvious physical differences worth bringing your attention to: my hair is darker (much darker) in the first photograph, I am smiling ear-to-ear a genuine smile in the second photograph, and perhaps you can even tell I am much thinner in the first with a fuller face and figure in the second.

    In the first photograph I recall quite well how insecure I was, uncertain of the future and scared by it. In the second photograph I am by no means insecure and completely happy with myself and the body I live in, but I am still just as uncertain of the future the only different being I am by no means scared of that, rather, it excites me!

    Travelling the world

    Does Travelling Heal a Broken Heart?

    A lot of girls and women are now choosing to travel solo. Of course this doesn t always mean they are broken or really travelling for the sole purpose of getting over something particularly a break up. But at the same time, a lot of them are. After all that s probably why you re here reading this!

    I also get a lot of emails, tweets and comments from girls who have followed in my footsteps and other solo travel bloggers, many of whom have cited a break up as their reason for needing to venture out into the world to heal or find answers to the questions they don t even know. Point being: you are not alone. You are never alone and there is always someone fighting the same battle as you, just as there is always someone fighting a harder battle than you. [as girls, we gotta stick together!]

    When I took this year I took it completely for myself. I wasn t interested in getting back into a relationship with my ex-boyfriend and I wasn t even interested in getting into a new relationship. All I wanted was time to myself to figure it all out, but mostly to figure myself out. To find out what I did and didn t like, only to be discovered by actually trying those things rather than to conclude i hate peanut butter because I had never tried it (I now love peanut butter, by the way!)

    I needed to better understand myself, be able to become patient, more kind, more understanding because there isn t enough of that in the world and the best we can do is start with ourselves. I need to learn how to deal with stressful situations, with the rollercoaster that is life, and to tolerate others in a way that would leave a calm smile on my face when someone around me was doing something I didn t like. Being resentful doesn t help anyone, and least of all yourself.

    So in short, yes. Travelling did heal my broken heart and it is a sure way to challenge yourself, lose yourself, find yourself, create yourself it truly is a time to just be yourself. But that isn t to say you couldn t do this without travelling either. The point of that year was to take a year to myself not to focus on anyone or anything other than me, because I think in some ways to be with someone and let them love you, you really have to fall in love with yourself first.

    There are heaps of things we love about Europe – eating cheese at breakfast without being judged is certainly up there. More so that you can instantly become so darned cultured, freely changing course and whizzing across borders on trains, buses and in a car to tick off a few iconic countries in a day. We have heaps of flexible and independent ways to travel around Europe so strap on your rucksacks and head on a rail spree or hire a car and head to an epic European festival – breakfast cheese waits for no man.

    Each of Europe’s cities hosts it’s own collection of historic riches, cutting-edge, creative neighbourhoods and fiercely independent civic pride. From the anicent classic of Rome to the romantic streets of Paris, we’ve picked our favourite European spots for a cultural/boozy (delete as appropriate) European vacation.

    18-35s Tour

    European Encounter

    Every highlight possible has been packed into this 17-day itinerary, which starts off in hedonistic Amsterdam where bicycles outnumber cars. You’ll then whisk through Germnay and Austria before reaching Italy and its famous cities – the canals of Venice, the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome and the Renaissance sweetheart, Florence. Check out the crystal-clear shores of the glitzy Riviera before hitting Paris with its wide boulevards and chic fashion boutiques.

    Small Group

    Cities of Europe

    If you’re looking for a stellar, budget-conscious tour that provides a quick yet comprehensive sampler of Europe, this is a party you’ll want to join. We’ll hit up five countries in 14 days and take the time to drink in all the highlights in famous cities like Paris, Rome, Venice, London and more. Enjoy comfortable train travel between locations and soak up the experience of seeing Europe with a small group.

    Mediterranean Adventures

    There are countless ways to experience the Med – we have yachting holidays in the Greek Islands, traditional gulets in Turkey, and wooden cruisers or yachts to explore the hedonistic islands of Croatia. If it’s island-hopping you’re after, you can do this cheaply like the locals on one of our ferry-based tours in Greece, from sun-soaked Mykonos to volcanic Santorini.

    Explore Eastern Europe

    Take a peek behind the former ‘Iron Curtain’ and you’ll discover why Eastern Europe is one of the hottest destinations on the planet right now. It’s way cheaper and less touristy than it’s western counterparts which means you have more money left over for beer. Relax in Budapest’s thermal spa baths, visit the harrowing Auschwitz concentration camp or take a tour of Warsaw’s Jewish Ghetto – the history and beauty of these fascinating destinations will captivate your imagination.

    Travelling europe

    Eastern Road

    18-35s Tour

    From the edgy and exciting city of Berlin, you’ll visit historic Prague and cultured Vienna, the showcase capital of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. Straddle the Danube River as you explore the twin cities of Buda and Pest before moving onto Poland, where you’ll discover the sights and sounds of Krakow and Warsaw.

    When is the best time of year to visit Europe?

    Europe is pretty massive, so the weather can vary quite a bit from country to country. In winter, (generally November – March), northern parts of Europe are covered in snow and throughout December, magical Christmas markets pop up all over the place. Head to Germany, Austria or Prague for a traditional European Christmas, or to the French Alps for world class skiing and snowboarding. In summer time, the Greek Islands, Turkey, Croatia and the Mediterranean coast are glorious – you’ll find endless stretches of sandy beaches to kick back and relax on. Prices tend to be highest in Europe at Christmas, Easter and during the summer vacation (July and August) – travel during off peak times and you’ll be sure to bag yourself a sweet deal or two.

    Do I need a visa to visit countries in Europe?

    Australians tourists and holiday makers visiting Europe for up to six months don’t need to apply for a visa in advance. But if you plan on staying longer, or working in an EU country, you’ll need to apply using the Australian Goverment website. Speak to one of our travel experts for more information.

    Sleeping Children Around the World distributes bedkits to children in a ratio of 50% girls and 50% boys, who are aged 6 to 12, and are from any culture and any religion. Every child should be able to get a good night’s sleep. The contents of a bedkit vary from country to country, but always contain bedding and a mosquito net, clothing and school supplies.

    Bedkits are manufactured or purchased overseas by trustworthy organizations and individuals who use their local knowledge and expertise to pick the best bedkit items for the children living in that area. All bedkits are assembled in the country of distribution to eliminate shipping costs and to stimulate the economy.

    “As a sleep researcher, clinician and public health advocate who believes passionately in the value of a good night’s sleep for children’s health, well-being and success, I celebrate the incredible work of Sleeping Children Around the World. I have been fortunate enough to see the real and tangible impact this organization makes on children and families’ lives as a Traveling Volunteer in Tanzania and Kolkata India, and cannot say enough good things about their dedication and drive.”

    How to Travel by Cargo Ship Around the World, travelling around

    How to Travel by Cargo Ship Around the World

    Article and photos by Friedel Rother

    Resources updated 3/2015

    Travelling around the world

    Imagine for a moment that you are on the deck of a ship, sipping a glass of wine. You turn your head towards the water just in time to spot a pod of dolphins swimming by. After lingering in the sunshine for a while, it’s time to head inside for a 3-course evening meal and a splash in the pool before retiring to bed.

    Now, what kind of vessel are you on?

    No, you are not on a standard commercial cruise ship. This is no luxury liner hopping between Caribbean islands. It is a modern freighter. Hundreds of cargo ships, carrying everything from fire engines to apples, are crossing the world’s oceans and many are happy to take you along for the ride.

    A far more intimate and relaxed experience than you might imagine, the experience on board is a sharp contrast to the rough and industrial outward appearance a container ship tends to project. You will be one of a handful of passengers amongst a crew that is unlikely to number more than a few dozen. There will be no organized games of bingo or evening cabaret show. You might, however, be invited to karaoke with the sailors and you will almost always dine alongside the captain, who is far more likely to turn up in shorts and a t-shirt than full uniform.

    Our introduction to freighter travel was a relatively short 5-day sailing between Australia and New Zealand. We joined the French ship CMA-CGM Utrillo in the busy port of Melbourne, where our mounds of luggage including two bicycles and 11 bags were quickly hauled on board and into a spacious cabin by a host of cheery Filipino deckhands.

    The Costs of Cargo Ship Travel

    Here was our first taste of the wonders of sea travel plenty of luggage allowance. Not an eye was blinked at our 100kg (220lbs) of possessions. We were entitled to bring double that. In this case, we felt the 500 (

    US$550) per person cost for our trip was worth it as the excess luggage fees on the equivalent short flight would have been considerable, not to mention the stress of showing up at the airport to a bill of unknown proportions. About 100 (

    US$110) per day is the average fare to budget for a freighter trip, with 80 (

    US$90) the minimum and certain coastal trips on the higher range.

    Hospitality on Board

    Our next surprise was how quickly we felt part of the family. Just moments after arriving, our fellow passenger (a French woman literally going around the world in 80 days ) hinted that the captain was certain to throw us a welcome barbecue. He does that for everyone new, she said with a wink. Sure enough, the next evening was spent on the back deck of the ship, feasting on grilled fish and chatting with the seamen as the sun went down.

    Travelling around the world

    One of our concerns before sailing was that we’d find the days long. It was just the opposite. There were three square meals a day (hearty plates of meat and vegetables for working men) and the time between eating was filled with strolls round the deck and trips up to the bridge to check our position and ask questions.

    Had there ever been stowaways? Yes, once, a man from Iraq. What about pirates? Not here but there were off the coast of Africa. And just how much fuel did a cargo ship need? Apparently $60,000 U.S. a day will cover it, in the current era of relatively low oil prices.

    A Relaxing Way to Travel

    With our curiosity temporarily curbed, we would return to our cabin for reading, journal writing, and maybe a bit of table tennis if we felt especially energetic. Far away from the hustle and bustle of life on firm land, we were truly relaxed. It was a complete contrast to the hurried airplane trips we were used to.

    For Hamish Jamieson, the owner of Freighter Travel NZ and one of only a handful of travel agents in the world licensed to book tickets on cargo ships, the simplicity of being at sea is the main attraction.

    When you’re sitting up the front of the bow of the ship, on your own, and all you see is the sea going past and you hear the wind and waves, you’re in heaven. For me, an afternoon with a thermos of Chardonnay, sitting right on the bow, watching the world go by with my binoculars, that’s my heaven, he said.

    Flexibility Required When Traveling by Cargo Ships

    Of course nothing in life is all smooth sailing and while we didn’t encounter any problems during our trip, we did struggle with the uncertain nature of freighter travel before we boarded. Our initial departure date jumped forward first by three days and then seemed to bounce around by 12-24 hours every time we called to check the latest news. It is not an uncommon experience and one you must be prepared for.

    Even ports of call are not guaranteed because on a cargo ship, freight comes first, not the passengers. If the demand is not there for a certain stop, the ship will go where the business is.

    Our trip from the USA to Europe changed three times after initial booking, say Rebecca Hogue and Scott Drennan, currently on a journey around the world without using airplanes. Their initial trip from South Carolina to Belgium ended up being from Florida to Italy. Had we not been flexible with our departure times and locations, things would not have worked out.

    As Mr. Jamieson is fond of telling his passengers, when you go to sea, there are two things you must pack: a sense of humor and a sense of patience.

    Your trip may also involve some red tape, particularly where U.S. stops are concerned. American citizens are not permitted, for example, to travel within their country by cargo ship, although they can make international journeys. Meanwhile, travelers to the United States must have a visa, even if they would not need one to arrive by air. Only Canadians are exempt from this rule.

    Be sure to budget time and money to get vaccinations like Yellow Fever if you are going through the Suez and Panama canals. A medical certificate declaring you to be in generally good health is another common requirement.

    Where in the World Do You Want to Go?

    But perhaps the hardest part of booking your cargo ship voyage is deciding where to go. Will it be to South America and around Cape Horn? How about a 55-day round trip from California to Australia and New Zealand via Tahiti and Mexico? Mr. Jamieson offers a few more ideas.

    For me the ultimate voyage is the Bank Line voyage from Auckland, in New Zealand, to Singapore. It takes 40-45 days to sail what you can fly in just under 12 hours but it visits nearly every island in the Pacific on the way and it stops for 2-3 days. The second choice for me would be from Singapore through to Houston in Texas. It goes up through Thailand, Vietnam, half a dozen ports in China, into Japan, then straight across the Pacific and through the Panama Canal.

    With enough time and money at your disposal, there are few places in the world a cargo ship can’t reach. You just need to be adventurous enough to get on board.

    Travelling around the world

    The Golden Rules of Cargo Ship Travel

    • Be prepared to make your own fun. There are no programmed activities, aside from the odd safety drill.
    • Go before you’re too old. An upper age limit of 70-80 years is common as there is no doctor on board and plenty of stairs.
    • Check that your travel insurance covers freighter travel.
    • Be flexible. Schedules can and do change frequently. You may need 2-3 ships to reach your destination.
    • Book in advance. Cabins are limited and the most popular routes can be sold out months ahead of time.
    • Forget about working in exchange for your passage. Modern union rules mean this is no longer permitted.
    • Take a good supply of seasickness pills. While not very common, rough weather can occur, sending tables, chairs, and your stomach flying across the room.

    For More Information

    Freighter Travel (NZ) is Hamish Jamieson’s company, which was the agency we used. They are specialists in cargo ship travel, providing background, Q A, pricing examples, and assistance on planning a trip.

    Maris Freighter and Specialty Cruises and Maris Freighter Club Int’l offers a variety of voyages to many destinations. You can go from island to island. You may cross the ocean 1-way. You can take coastal routes stopping at major ports. You may even choose from around-the-world cargo ship cruise options.

    Insurance for Bicycle Tours, TravellingTwo: Bicycle Touring Around The World, travelling

    Insurance for Bicycle Tours

    Getting insurance to cover your big bicycle tour is more complicated than buying normal travel insurance. Here s what you need to know.

    Travelling around the world

    For your international bike tour, you ll probably want at least health insurance in case something goes wrong.

    1. Bike Touring Is An Extreme Sport (not really, but )

    We personally think bike touring is pretty safe but insurance companies see it differently. It s frequently listed under the extreme sports section of their policies. That rules out many generic backpacking policies.

    2. Bike Tours Can Be Too Long

    If you re bike touring for 90 days or less, it s easy to find insurance. Even finding policies of up to 1 year isn t too hard. For more than 12 months, however, you have to focus in on a specific set of long-term policies and hopefully find one that will let you renew the policy from overseas. This page focuses mainly on insurance for extended tours of several months.

    3. Bike Touring Is A Constant Activity

    Sometimes insurers will word their policies so you have coverage for bike touring, but only as an incidental activity. That means it shouldn t be a major part of your trip. If a policy has this wording, it won t be suitable for most bike tours, which involve daily cycling.

    Who Will Insure Me?

    Travelling around the world

    Cycling remote roads in New Zealand.

    With all of these challenges, who does sell policies for bike touring?

    In March 2011, we ran a survey of bike tourists who d been on long tours to ask their advice. We had 25 answers from around the world (America, Italy, Britain, the Netherlands, Australia ) and here s what we found out.

    32% Had No Insurance This surprised us! We no idea that so many long-term cyclists don t buy insurance at all. We did it on a wing and a prayer, said one person. The theory behind having no insurance goes a bit like this.

    • Disaster is unlikely. Insurance companies don t make money unless the vast majority of people never make a claim, so luck is on your side.
    • When there is a problem, it s likely to be small and cheap to sort out on your own. Indeed, in places like Thailandhealthcare is relatively affordable and paying for small medical checkups, minor ailments and even something as serious as a broken leg shouldn t impose a financial burden.

    The risk is that if you are unfortunate enough to truly encounter disaster, not having insurance could mean that you don t get to good treatment quickly. It could also place a substantial stress on your family.

    Insurance Companies Used By Bike Tourists

    Of those who did have insurance, the companies they used are listed below, separated by country of residence. The list begins with an International category for policies or companies that work in multiple countries. Where we ve easily found relevant information on the policies, we note this.

    Most of these policies cover medical emergencies as well as some basic provisions for theft and loss of personal possessions.

    *Keeping this list up to date and researching each policy is a big job for just 2 people running a blog If you have information to share, please leave a comment and we ll use the comments to update the list.

    International

    • IMG International Medical Group (used by Family on Bikes)
    • Mondial Assistance
    • World Nomads For people living in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. British residents can only purchase World Nomads insurance for single-continent bike touring. (Used by Going Slowly. Tour.tk had a negative experience.)
    • World Escapade A Canadian broker, offering cover for citizens of many countries.
    • World Wide Insure Policies for residents of many countries. One UK resident (Lee Hughes) asked about a policy for a long bike tour and was told of a Longstay policy with a maximum of 18 months cover. A recent change to their underwriting means extended trips will incure a surcharge.

    Australia

    The Netherlands

    • Joho Special Isis This policy is good for anyone with a postal address in the Netherlands, and who plans to start and end their trip in the Netherlands. It can be purchased for up to 4 years. You don t need a Dutch passport or to have domestic Dutch health insurance.
    • Europeesche

    Slovenia

    • Coris (not recommended by the person who used them)
    • British Mountaineering Council This is the company that insured us for all 3 years of our 2006-2009 world tour. Their policies are changing and they are now reluctant to insure anything other than short breaks away.
    • Campbell Irvine (used by Rolling Tales)
    • ETA Only covers up to 60 days worldwide (90 days in Europe) but if you can cope with the timescale then they do have some nice features, such as insurance for the bike itself.
    • Insure and Go Policies of up to 18 months under their backpackers policy (used by Bike About).
    • Navigator Travel This company seems to be used by a few bike tourists, judging by emails we receive. I ve got 6 months cover including cycle touring and I can extend it by phone while I m away, if my plans change. The price was really good and they insure up to age 64 which solves one of the problems I ve been hitting in my searches, says Ann Wilson.
    • PJ Hayman
    • Rock Insurance

    Questions To Ask

    No matter which company you go with, when you re comparing policies and prices ask questions like:

    1. Does your policy cover cycle touring as a primary form of transport? Many travel policies aimed at gap year trips and backpackers only cover cycling as an incidental activity, not a primary one.

    2. Can I renew this policy after one year and from abroad? For longer expeditions, this question is especially important. Some policies cannot be renewed or only from your country of residence.

    3. Will my policy be invalidated if I return home for a visit? The fine print may state that your policy becomes void if you go back home, even briefly. Because our trip started with a London-Montreal-London flight and then on to Europe, we had to exclude many potential policies.

    4. How long can I be away in any given period? Some year policies only allow you to actually be away for a certain number of days in that year.

    Travelling around the world

    Cycling the back roads of Spain.

    Check as well to see what is already covered by insurance you already hold. House insurance frequently provides some coverage and we met a New Zealand cyclist doing a tour of her home country, who said her car insurance included a break-down service if something happened to her bike!

    Forget About The Bike

    Many first-time bike tourists get hung up on finding cover for the entire value of their bicycle. Insurance for high-value bicycles is, however, expensive and hard to find in most countries.

    All in all, the risk of having your bike stolen on tour is quite small, so this is one risk it s probably best to just guard against yourself by taking basic precautions against bike theft.

    Advantage of Travelling Around the World

    Travelling around the world

    Travelling is a great thing to do, especially now. Summer is a good time of year to start a new adventure or see new parts of the world. But what exactly is travelling? Simply stated, travelling is a process of getting from one place to another.

    Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer. Are you familiar with the saying, “The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page”?

    There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesn’t have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the real world. Travelling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.

    There are many advantages to travelling around the world. Here are a few to think about:

    Travelling around the world

    You will enjoy the Adventure

    The reason why many people travel is because they love an adventure. There are several different types of adventures to choose from when you travel. An example of this is travelling to different beaches; some people enjoy diving while others prefer surfing.

    Wherever you will go, you will make memories of your adventure which will last a lifetime. You can relive the enjoyment again and again as you look back on the great adventure you had when travelling.

    You get to know different People and Places

    The world contains lots of countries and not all people are the same. When travelling, you get the opportunity to meet different people from different places. In life, one of the most important social skills we learn is how to interact and communicate with people who are different than we are.

    All people have their own way of communicating, and not all ways are effective. Some people tend to have problems expressing themselves because their social abilities are not developed. Travelling and interacting with a variety of people can help build or improve social skills with very little effort.

    Not only does travelling improve communication skills, it can actually boost self-confidence, since ideas and opinions are able to be more clearly expressed, shared and understood.

    Getting accustomed to different cultures

    Different cultures exist everywhere. As a traveler, it’s your duty to respect the culture of the people you visit. Some places have more modern cultures while others have traditional beliefs and customs.

    Experiencing different cultures can also be enlightening and educational; many travelers look for places to visit whose cultures are different from their own. Learning about other’s lives and customs deepens our understanding of ourselves and of our world. It teaches us respect and is humbling in many cases.

    Learning the culture of different peoples can reveal how people see themselves in a group. Culture may be defined as a total way of life, created by a group of people. It is then passed down from one generation to the next.

    You tend to see different places that you haven’t seen before

    For many people, the main reason for travelling is to see the world. Travelling can be a dream come true! It allows you to have adventures in new places and see things you never thought possible.

    Travelling around the world

    Relaxation

    Stress is a natural part of life; in fact it helps us to survive! But when we have too much stress in our lives, it can be dangerous to our health. Many things bring about stress: work, family, relationships, change in health. Even positive change brings on stress.

    There are lots of activities that can help reduce stress and tension. One way to reduce stress and anxiety is by relaxing or by doing activities you enjoy. Travelling can bring joy to life, especially in stressful times. It can be one of the best ways to remove stress, reduce tension and restore balance.

    Tips and advice on travel in Australia: The eight worst things

    Tips and advice on travel in Australia: The eight worst things about travelling in Australia

    There’s plenty to love about travelling in Australia, plenty that you can and should appreciate. This is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet, a place most people have to pay a lot of money for the privilege of coming to visit, and we get to experience it every day.

    Travel in Australia can be amazing. To visit your own country is to discover ancient cultures, beautiful landscapes, some of the world’s best beaches, cosmopolitan cities and friendly people. It’s something everyone should do.

    However, it’s not perfect. In some areas Australia lets itself down. Some of those factors are cultural, while others are just an unavoidable part of life here. If you’re going to travel in Australia and you’re going to enjoy yourself, these are the things that, right now, you just have to accept.

    The prices are high

    This is the most common complaint from overseas visitors as well as domestic travellers: everything in Australia costs too much. The hotels, the tours, the attractions, the food, the experiences. Super pricey. Go to Spain and you can get a glass of wine for a few Euros. Go to Thailand and you can live like a king for a couple of bucks. But in Australia? You’d better get saving. We can’t match the prices of overseas destinations for a variety of reasons, and we probably never will.

    You have to fly

    Plenty of travellers love to use trains when they’re travelling, whether it’s for short intercity hops in Europe, or longer multi-night adventures in Russia or Asia. In Australia, however, you wouldn’t travel by train. Unless you’re prepared to spend up big on a luxury adventure, there’s very little romance in train travel here. It’s just not a system of transport we really use to cover the huge distances you find in Australia. Travellers are far better off using the budget airline network and just getting to their destinations fast.

    You have to give up somewhere else

    This is another difficulty of travelling in Australia: to commit to a domestic holiday, you also have to effectively give up on an overseas journey. You’re making a choice here. If you elect to see Uluru, or Tasmania, or the Great Barrier Reef, or the Barossa, you have to accept that on this holiday you won’t be going to Vietnam, or Japan, or France, or India. For some people that’s a big thing to dismiss.

    The thrill isn’t the same

    There’s no language barrier when you travel in Australia, unless you count the accents in country Queensland. There’s no challenge to navigating a restaurant menu here, or to ordering a drink, or to getting from one place to another. Everything in Australia is predictable, safe, and easy. And in some ways that’s great. For those who thrive on the dizzying confusion of foreign travel, however, that can be disappointing.

    Our history is intangible

    Australia’s tangible history, its centuries-old buildings in places like the Rocks and Hobart, are fairly impressive – however, our past has a lot more to it than that. There have been human inhabitants in this country for possibly up to 80,000 years. The only thing is, however, that their history can’t be seen or touched. Ancient Aboriginal culture is not represented by churches or old monuments. It’s represented by stories and knowledge. That’s exciting and fascinating, but it does require viewing cultural tourism in a different way.

    Our snow is unpredictable

    The Australian ski resorts are now coming to the end of what has been a cracker of a season; however, that’s not always that case. If you’re going to commit to a skiing or snowboarding holiday in Australia, you also have to accept that maybe the snow won’t be so good this time. Maybe it’ll be icy, maybe it’ll be slushy. Or, maybe it will be a powdery wonderland. You just never know.

    The service isn’t always great

    Travel in the US, and you get great service. Every time. Same in Canada. Travel in Southeast Asia and you’ll probably be pretty well looked after too. Same goes for a lot of Europe. Australia, however, isn’t quite so reliable. We don’t have an ingrained service culture here, and travellers have to get used to the idea that they won’t always be cared for in the same way as they would in a foreign country.

    We’re different

    Travelling australia

    Longitude 131, Uluru.

    I wrote a story a few weeks ago about Australian alternatives to popular overseas destinations, about the places you can go right here if you don’t want to travel overseas. And we do have some truly great alternatives to the world’s most famous attractions. However, they’re not quite the same, and in some areas we’ll never be able to compete. We’ll never have the wildlife of southern and east Africa, or the art galleries of the European capitals, or the cultural exoticism of Asia or the Middle East. Sometimes it’s best to just accept that, and concentrate on the attractions that make Australia unique.

    Are there certain aspects of travel in Australia that we just have to accept? Or should things be different here?

    Advantage of Travelling Around the World

    Travelling is a great thing to do, especially now. Summer is a good time of year to start a new adventure or see new parts of the world. But what exactly is travelling? Simply stated, travelling is a process of getting from one place to another.

    Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer. Are you familiar with the saying, “The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page”?

    There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesn’t have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the real world. Travelling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.

    There are many advantages to travelling around the world. Here are a few to think about:

    You will enjoy the Adventure

    The reason why many people travel is because they love an adventure. There are several different types of adventures to choose from when you travel. An example of this is travelling to different beaches; some people enjoy diving while others prefer surfing.

    Wherever you will go, you will make memories of your adventure which will last a lifetime. You can relive the enjoyment again and again as you look back on the great adventure you had when travelling.

    You get to know different People and Places

    The world contains lots of countries and not all people are the same. When travelling, you get the opportunity to meet different people from different places. In life, one of the most important social skills we learn is how to interact and communicate with people who are different than we are.

    All people have their own way of communicating, and not all ways are effective. Some people tend to have problems expressing themselves because their social abilities are not developed. Travelling and interacting with a variety of people can help build or improve social skills with very little effort.

    Not only does travelling improve communication skills, it can actually boost self-confidence, since ideas and opinions are able to be more clearly expressed, shared and understood.

    Getting accustomed to different cultures

    Different cultures exist everywhere. As a traveler, it’s your duty to respect the culture of the people you visit. Some places have more modern cultures while others have traditional beliefs and customs.

    Experiencing different cultures can also be enlightening and educational; many travelers look for places to visit whose cultures are different from their own. Learning about other’s lives and customs deepens our understanding of ourselves and of our world. It teaches us respect and is humbling in many cases.

    Learning the culture of different peoples can reveal how people see themselves in a group. Culture may be defined as a total way of life, created by a group of people.  It is then passed down from one generation to the next.

    You tend to see different places that you haven’t seen before

    For many people, the main reason for travelling is to see the world. Travelling can be a dream come true! It allows you to have adventures in new places and see things you never thought possible.

    Relaxation

    Stress is a natural part of life; in fact it helps us to survive! But when we have too much stress in our lives, it can be dangerous to our health. Many things bring about stress: work, family, relationships, change in health. Even positive change brings on stress.

    There are lots of activities that can help reduce stress and tension. One way to reduce stress and anxiety is by relaxing or by doing activities you enjoy. Travelling can bring joy to life, especially in stressful times. It can be one of the best ways to remove stress, reduce tension and restore balance.

    travel

    The word travel has come to exemplify a common spelling quandary: to double or not to double the final consonant of a verb before adding the ending that forms the past tense ( –ed ) or the ending that forms the present-participle ( –ing. ) We see it done both ways—sometimes with the same word ( travel, traveled, traveling; travel, travelled, travelling ). As readers, we accept these variations without even thinking about them. But as writers, we need to know just when we should double that final consonant and when we should not. Because American practice differs slightly from British practice, there is no one answer. But there are well-established conventions.

    In American writing, when you have a one-syllable verb that ends with a single vowel followed by a single consonant, and you want to add a regular inflectional ending that begins with a vowel, you double that final consonant before adding -ed or -ing. stop, stopped, stopping; flag, flagged, flagging. This principle also holds for verbs of more than one syllable if the final syllable is stressed: permit, permitted, permitting; refer, referred, referring. If that syllable is not stressed, there is no doubling of the final consonant: gallop, galloped, galloping; travel, traveled, traveling.

    And yet at his trial he was accused of travelling to Ireland in order to provoke the Easter Rising.

    On another trip, to Pakistan, travelling in the deserts of Sindh I came across the Shah Jo Raag Fakirs.

    Modern neuroscientists, it seems, are travelling the same path as earlier investigators.

    TRAVELLING

    As for me I prefer to learn about the world travelling.

    Millions people all over the world spend their holidays travelling. They travel to see other countries and continents, modern cities and the ruins of ancient towns, they travel to enjoy picturesque places or just for a change of scene. It’s always interesting to discover new things and different ways of life, to meet different people, to try different food, to listen to different music.

    Those who live in the country like to go to a big city and spend their time visiting museums and art galleries, looking at shop windows and dining at exotic restaurants. City residents usually like a quiet holiday by the sea and in the mountains with nothing to do but walk and bathe and lay in the sun. Most travelers and holiday-makers take a camera with them and take pictures of everything that interest them – the sights of a city, old churches and castles, views of mountains, lakes, valleys, plains, waterfalls, forests, different kinds of trees, flowers and plants, animals and birds. Later, perhaps years later, they will be reminded by the photos of the happy time they had.

    People travel by train, by plane, by ship or boat and by car. All means of travel have their advantages and disadvantages. And people choose one according to their plans and preferences. The fasters way of travelling – is travelling by plane, but in my opinion the most comfortable is travelling by ship and the cheapest is travelling on foot.

    If we are fond of travelling, we see and learn a lot of things that we can never see or learn at home, though we may read about them in books and newspapers and see pictures of them on TV. The best way to study geography is to travel and the best way to get to know and understand the people is to meet them in their own homes.

    Nowadays people mostly travel by air, as it’s the fastest means of travelling. Passengers are requested to arrive at the airport 2 hours before departure time on international flights and an hour on domestic flights, as there must be enough time to complete the necessary airport formalities. Before passengers get on board the plane, they have to register their luggage. Each passenger is given a boarding pass to be shown at the departure gate and again to the stewardess when boarding the plane. Landing formalities and custom regulations are more or less the same in all countries: while still on board the plane the passengers are given arrival cards to fill in. After the passengers have disembarked, officials will check his passport and visa. Then the passengers go to the custom for an examination of their luggage. As a rule personal belongings may be brought in duty-free. In some cases the custom inspector may ask you to open your bag for inspection.

    As for me, I prefer to travel by plane. And now I would like to tell you about my first travelling by plane. It was in 1998 when I travelled to Italy. I travelled without parents, but with guide and other children. I don’t remember exactly how much time it took to fly from Minsk to Venice, but I think it must be about 2 or 3 hours. During the flight I communicated with my neighbours, I admired the view from my window and slept a bit. When we are were landing in Venice I looked out of my window and saw the entire city at my hand. It isn’t true, that there is no one road in Venice, but only water channels. I can say that only the third part of the city is covered with water. Then the plain landed. So, it was my first travelling by plane.

    And in the end I’ll say that traveling is a nice hobby and a great thing if you want to know more about the world and certainly if you are studying a foreign language.

    Some Risk

    There is some risk to your security elsewhere in Thailand due to the potential for civil unrest and threat of terrorism.  We advise caution.

    Political Tension/Civil unrest

    On 22 May 2014, the Thai military took control of the government in a coup and imposed martial law nationwide.  On 1 April 2015, martial law was lifted across most of Thailand but replaced by other special measures which continue to allow the military expanded powers to enforce order.

    Under the measures, authorities may restrict movement, public assembly or political gatherings and have prohibited the distribution of any information considered detrimental to Thailand’s national security or public order.  Individuals may be detained for violation of these and other measures.

    New Zealanders throughout Thailand are advised to exercise caution and monitor the media to stay informed of developments.  We recommend adhering to any instructions or restrictions issued by the local authorities. New Zealanders throughout Thailand should be wary of making political statements in public and on social media.

    From November 2013 until the coup in May 2014, Thailand experienced large-scale political demonstrations.  Several violent incidents in the vicinity of these demonstrations resulted in injuries and deaths.  A number of small explosions have occurred in public places in Bangkok since February 2015.  Police investigations into these incidents are ongoing and further such incidents are possible.

    New Zealanders throughout Thailand are advised to avoid any protests, demonstrations, and large public gatherings, as even those intended to be peaceful have the potential to quickly turn violent.

    Before travelling to Thailand we recommend you check with your insurance provider that they will continue to cover you for claims arising from the current situation.

    Terrorism

    There is an on-going threat of terrorism in Thailand.  There have been a number of explosive device incidents in Bangkok and other cities, including Phuket and Koh Samui.

    On 17 August 2015, an explosion near the Erawan Shrine in central Bangkok killed at least 20 people and injured many more.  A further explosion occurred on 18 August, when a device detonated in the water by the Saphan Taksin pier, close to the main tourist ferry terminal in Bangkok.  There were no injuries in this second attack.  Investigations into both incidents are ongoing.

    New Zealanders are advised to exercise a high degree of personal security awareness in Thailand.  Particular care should be taken in public and commercial areas, including landmark places known to be frequented by expatriates or foreign tourists, public transport facilities, hotels, bars, tourist resorts, shopping areas and places of worship.

    Local travel

    There is an ongoing threat of violence in the southernmost provinces of Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani and Songkhla.  Bombings and shootings are common in these provinces and over 5,000 people have been killed in the ongoing conflict since 2004.  Foreigners have been caught up in this violence in the past.

    In the north of the country, a dispute centred around the Preah Vihear temple (known as Khao Pra Viharn temple in Thailand) on the Thai-Cambodia border has led to hostilities and tensions in the past.  Thai and Cambodian troops are deployed in this area and have on occasion engaged in armed conflict.  The situation has stabilised however we recommend exercising particular care in areas close to the border with Cambodia and at border crossings.

    There is also a danger from unexploded landmines in areas surrounding the temple and the Ta Kwai and Ta Muen Thom temples.  If you are travelling in this area we recommend you remain on well-used roads and paths.

    General travel advice

    It is a requirement under Thai law to carry photo identification at all times.  A  New Zealand driver’s licence or a photocopy of the biodata page from a passport would be adequate identification in the first instance.

    New Zealanders travelling or living in Thailand should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place that includes provision for medical evacuation by air.

    New Zealanders in Thailand are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
