Top 10 Things to do in Gothenburg, Sweden

I can’t believe I’m writing a “Things to do in Gothenburg” post, because our trip almost didn’t happen. And if you know just how obsessed we’ve been with Sweden in the past couple of years, you’ll know just how much this meant to us. Our obsession with all things Swedish probably began a million years ago with Ikea (just like everyone else) but went on to mean much much more

The I amsterdam City Card – 5 Reasons You Should Get it

The I amsterdam City Card promised to be a fantastic way to dive into all the great attractions the city has to offer what with all the discounts and freebies advertised on their site.

Taking a Personal Loan to Travel? Read this.

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you rich. Sure, but if you’ve seen that meme flying around, the one about That Rich Friend Who Travels, you know that it isn’t the first priority in everyone’s budget.

How to choose the best travel sunglasses with SmartBuyGlasses

For someone who swears by travel sunglasses today, I must confess I wasn’t always comfortable wearing sunglasses. For years I shunned them, believing firmly that I didn’t really need them, and that everything I was looking at, was best seen with my naked eyes. It’s taken a whole lot of coaxing from Charles for me to invest in a pair of Ray Ban Aviators, and I haven’t been able to
