    Fuel Your Travel Plans With Coffee

    MELITTA AVANZA SERIES 600 FULLY AUTOMATIC COFFEE MACHINE ⇷☓⇸ One of the most exciting parts about travelling is the planning stage. Who, what, where, when and how play a major part and be both riveting and daunting at the same time. Everyone’s different. Some people are spontaneous. Some like to have a day-by-day itinerary. Some are happy just exploring a city on foot with no real plans to speak of. And some just want to sit on the beach and relax – doing stuff isn’t their idea of a relaxing vacation. I find the same comes to coffee. I prefer a decent latte or a classic Americano to get me…

    How to Travel from Home

    SATISFY YOUR TRAVEL URGES WITHOUT LEAVING HOME ⇷☓⇸ After coming back to the UK after years of travelling around the world I often get asked how I deal the dreaded post-travel blues and staying in the travel mind-set to keep on going.  It’s a tough question to answer and one I often ponder myself sometimes, as I am sure many other travellers often do as well. There is honestly no easy way to avoid the blues, especially if you are back for a significant amount of time.  What makes it harder is when you are required to stay at home due to health issues, family ties or other commitments and…

    Exploring Mexico

    WHAT TO SEE AND DO ⇷☓⇸ When most people think of Mexico they picture long beautiful beaches, delicious food and of course the infamous spring break pilgrimage. While Cancun has rows of luxury all-inclusive resorts, that is not the only thing to do in Mexico and it is far from what the country is really about.  Is it dangerous though, you may ask? Well to a degree yes, but so it every other country you may visit. You just have to be careful, keep your wits about you and not flash your cash too much to draw unnecessary attention to yourself.  While Mexico’s beaches are beautiful, and there’s nothing wrong…
