Why Bicycles Hold All the Cards & What are Their Integral Parts

I could probably talk about the health and environmental benefits of riding a bicycle for hours, and most of it would be common sense. Instead, let’s talk benefits from a financial point of view. An average vehicle costs about 80 cents to operate per kilometer, and that isn’t taking into account the costs that come with maintenance and replacing parts, which can cost anywhere from a couple of dollars to several thousand for more serious part replacement and repairs. Oh yes, and then there’s the initial cost of a brand new vehicle, registration, and so on and so forth. Conversely, a brand new, quality bicycle costs a fraction of the price of a vehicle. You can do most, if not all of the maintenance and repairs by yourself, and bicycle parts are quite affordable. Riding a bicycle to work doesn’t have any operating costs, except muscle power, which can in…

How to deal with long-haul flights

Unless you’re regularly flying business or first-class, the idea of being comfortable on a long-haul flight may seem ridiculous. And sure, you may not exactly feel like you’re lying on the beach with a margarita in your hand, but that doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily be suffering. Even if you’re resigned to suffering when flying long-haul (as I am), these tips will help make the experience ever so slightly better: Choose the right seat Seat choice is everything, and airlines know this. That’s why many of them (even full-cost airlines) are now charging for people who want to choose their seats in advance. It can be well worth it though, and you’ll be thanking your lucky stars once you board your flight. Window seats are great if you’re anticipating spending the majority of the flight sleeping. You can use the wall to lean against, and you also have control over the…

Why I’m taking a cruise this year

Typically, I’ve been a hostel and bus or train kind of girl. I take the budget airlines, I stay in the cheap motels, and I look for ways to save money whenever I can. But lately, I’ve found that I no longer want to make life more difficult for myself when I travel. I would actually rather take a shorter trip and truly enjoy it than take a long trip where I’m constantly on the move. I’ve always hated packing and unpacking my things when I’m travelling, and this has only increased as I’ve gotten older. I’m not a light packer, and I tend to spread my things out all over the hotel or hostel so packing is time-consuming and stressful. I also usually prefer travelling slowly, simply because while I would like to see as much as possible in a short time, I’ve learned my lesson and I hate…
