• How the Pandemic is Changing the Way We Travel
    Written by Raffy Joyce The word ‘travel’ would bring out a myriad of reactions from people, from fear to excitement. The Office for National Statistics’ article on COVID-19’s impact on travel pointed out that, just last year, monthly air passenger arrivals to the UK dropped by 98.3% in a span of 2 […]
  • Travel’s Dirty Secret
    Travel is dirty. Just how dirty is set by the price you pay or the level of adventure involved. An example is our Indiana Jones inspired family adventure, travelling through Morocco on the train. The journey south involved cramped spaces and a shortage of seats in a very communal carriage. […]
  • Plan your parcels for Christmas now
    Over the weekend I made a trip to my local Homebase, with the purpose of purchasing a back-up gas canister for the recently acquired patio heater that would enable us to meet friends and family outdoors now that my local area has gone into Tier Two. It’s actually a very […]
  • The Airport Experience in a Covid-19 World
    The banning of hand luggage on all low-cost flights has sent us back to the dark old days of having to arrive at airports at least 2 hours ahead of flight departures because of the fear of lengthy check in queues needed to get your bags in the aircraft hold. […]
  • Are you ready to take a flight?
    Overseas travel is now not only permitted by the Government, holidays are being actively encouraged as the message pivots from “Stay Home” to “Go Out and Spend”. Admittedly the UK Government would prefer it if we holiday in the UK so our economy benefits, but with the weather feeling distinctly “British” and the forecast for the rest of July […]
  • Dominic Cummings – on the periphery of acceptable or utterly irresponsible behaviour?
    To most, I suspect this would be a very short article, and there would be a simple answer – utterly unacceptable and irresponsible behaviour. But for some people, things are not always categorised in “black or white” and there are grey areas. Is there an argument that this matter falls into the grey category?   If the question is taken from […]
  • 14 Day Quarantine or Travel Bubbles?
    The British government’s proposed 14-day quarantine for most people arriving in the country due to be implemented as early as 01 June 2020 in order to try to prevent a second peak of the Covid19 pandemic has been widely rejected by the airline industry who predict it will strangle any hopes of a travel recovery.   Britain’s biggest […]
  • Sending Luggage During Lockdown
    How many of us were caught off guard when the UK went into lockdown? What I mean by caught off guard is where you were when it was announced and for some people that place wasn’t where they would ideally have been? Having to work away from home perhaps, or staying with friends or […]

  • The rise of bicycle holidays
    It’s difficult to escape the cycling revolution on British roads. Everyone from MAMILS to Brompton Boys throng the roads on the daily commute while cycling for pleasure is on the rise with nearly 14% of adults cycling for fun once a month. It’s no surprise, then, that bicycle holidays are […]
  • Ski holidays – reasons to transport your ski equipment
    Travelling to a ski resort is usually a little more complicated than reaching a summer holiday destination. First of all, it’s winter time – it’s cold and the weather can cause disruptions. In addition, the resort is usually a good distance from the airport, meaning you need to take a […]
