Student Travel – Earn & Save (transferable jobs to take abroad)

*Collaborative Post

There’s no denying that students don’t quite have it as easy as certain people may think, and even though we may look back on our time at university and recall the late nights and the friends and the fun, there was a lot of hard work that went on in between the revelry.

Vacations with an Elderly Parent

*Collaborative Post

Travelling with an elderly parent can come with some real challenges, but it can also be very rewarding. Vacations are a great way of bonding closer together and providing your loved ones with amazing memories. By including your parent or parents in your vacation plans, you get to give them a real sense of belonging, and for the elderly, isolation and loneliness can be very real worries.

Flying with a Baby Checklist

We are about to embark on our very first holiday abroad with a baby. We first took Jake aged 2 and even though he was still in nappies, he had far fewer needs. As long as he had toys, games and stickers he was a happy boy!

But to combat this I have done my research and this is my flying with a baby checklist: Continue reading “Flying with a Baby Checklist”
