Why Travel and Kindness is the best thing the Doctor can't prescribe

I have to admit, when it comes to gloomy winter time, I go back to animal instincts and prefer to be in hibernation mode...until I start getting cabin fever. 

At the start of every year I like to make a winters outing to two travel events The Adventure Travel Show and The Destinations Show, both held at Olympia, London.

I go purely to spend the chilly wintry day or weekend listening to other people, people with inspiring spirits of adventure and can-do attitudes as they regale tales of journeying around the world for all sorts of different reasons and needs - a real pick up from the dark, dreary days of British winter.

At the shows this year, there were a couple of talks that I felt were worth talking about in this blog post and the message that I myself have inwardly felt as I've embarked on various adventures in my short life so far.

Reduce your Plastic Footprint : Water-to-Go Drink Bottles

Greetings readers! 

Happy New Year! Been a while since I've done a blog post over winter. I've been trying to work on my new creative writing travel book among other things including trying to cope with my SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) but to try and banish the winter blues, I wanted to share this super cool product I came across which I've wanted for a while.....

I was attending travel writing seminars with Wanderlust Travel Magazine at the Adventure Travel Show in London last month (and if you like Adventure and you like Travel there are some really cool and inspiring talks in the theatres) and on my way around the labyrinth of orange stands, tents and an aeroplane flying dog (there really was - check end of post) a rather interesting water demonstration was going on at one of the stands which of course piqued my curiosity - don't you just love a good demonstration?

Saving For Travel Tips - Working For Your Travel Funds Before You Go

Working For Your Travel Funds Before You Go.

Some useful Notes and Suggestions on Working Before You Go.

Ok. So you've done your research, asked your questions and signed up to a ethical turtle conservation program you've always wanted to do in Costa Rica, done the rounds of appealing for sponsors for you to coach football to orphaned children in Ghana for a few months, had a stab at fundraising for that and downsized your clutter load for any bits of pieces you could exchange for some cash.

Now, unless you've got a Working Holiday Visa, you'll need to pay for placement companies for your niche volunteer experience or living costs on the road before you leave - time for some elbow grease and work to suffice your travel funds nicely before you go.
