I’m excited to announce a contribution from freelance writer and mother of two, Jenny Holt. She loves nothing more than getting away from it and taking her pet Labrador Bruce for long walks, something she can do a lot more now she’s left the corporate world behind. She has written a post for us today with some tips to help you protect your gadgets while you travel. I hope you enjoy her article!
When you’re preparing for a trip, you might be thinking about getting all your travel documents in order and packing your suitcase, but you should also think about digitally preparing for your journey, as well. I’ve often found myself leaving this step until the last minute and regretting the decision. Let’s explore some of the things you might want to prepare with your technology before you head out on a trip:
Look…I get it. Life is tough. It’s complicated. Travel can be expensive. You’ve got other priorities. I totally understand all of the reasons you may not be making travel a priority in your life. When faced with a mountain of bills and responsibilities, it can seem frivolous and luxurious. I understand, I really do. But the thing is, no matter how many reasons you have NOT to travel, there are also a lot of reasons why you should absolutely make travel a priority in your life. I’m not talking top priority. Obviously you need to feed yourself, take care of your kids (if you have kids), pay off bills, etc. I’m not saying you shouldn’t be responsible, but I am saying you should travel if there’s any way you can. Here are some reasons why….
If you’re a newbie to traveling abroad, you may be wondering just where to begin. Don’t let the fact that it’s a little more involved stop you…it’s really not so hard and the rewards are well worth the effort. That’s why I wrote this guide to help you with all the things you’re going to need (or want) when you leave your country to visit another…
This is, primarily, a travel blog, but I like to write about general life happiness and wellness also because the fact of the matter is that most of us can’t live our lives in a bubble where we float from one fabulous location to the next. We can’t all satiate our wanderlust at all moments, and there are days, weeks, or even months at a time where life can feel like a mundane, dreary routine of monotony.
Ok. This post isn’t about travel necessarily, but I wanted to write about it anyway because, a) Traveling is a whole lot harder when your finances aren’t in order, and b) this blog is first and foremost dedicated to inspiring people to live life to the fullest. That’s hard […]
I wanted to touch on this subject because something I get asked a lot is how I afford to travel. People often assume I’m rich, have a trust fund, a benefactor funding my travels, unlimited time off of work, or some other thing that they don’t have. I’ve touched on this subject before, of course, but I thought it was worth revisiting the topic because it’s still something I get asked a lot. I think there’s a perception out there that people who travel a lot are either wealthy or are completely ignoring responsibility and not preparing for the future. While both of those kinds of travelers do exist, I wanted to talk about the fact that you really can be financially responsible, not wealthy, and still live the travel life.
Lately I’ve been writing some blog tips that I hope you’ve all been finding useful. Today I’m going to talk about getting professional graphic design services in order to enhance your blog. I’m a professional graphic designer and in the course of my career, I’ve seen and heard some of the same questions and misconceptions from clients time and time again. I’m hoping this informative post will help any of you out who have been wanting to get some professional design done for your blogs.
I’m calling this post “part 2” because you may recall a while back when I wrote a post on Getting By Using Public Transit in San Diego. In that post, I detailed the different public transit options in and around San Diego County to help you, the visitor to my fine city, find your way around.
Take a moment to look at what is limiting you from achieving your travel dreams. Those reasons will be different for everybody depending on their personal situation, but I would be willing to bet that there is a significant amount of fear involved. Making a significant life change comes with a lot of uncertainty and the fear of the unknown and the possibility of negative consequences can be a powerful thing.
