    Amsterdam is one of those cities you’ll find yourself thinking about long after you’ve got back home. With all the amazing architecture to explore and friendly people to meet, the capital of the Netherlands really is one of the world’s most breathtaking places. Whether you plan to spend a weekend in Amsterdam or want to stay longer, it’s a good idea to think ahead and make a list of things you want to pack. In case you’re looking for some help, here are five essential items you’ll need. A quality camera This one may go without saying but there are just so many beautiful spots in Amsterdam and not taking as many pictures as you can would be a real shame. Although most of us have smartphones with a passable camera, if you’re into photography or you just want to take high-quality snaps for your Instagram page, investing in a good travel camera is recommended. If you end up buying one, make sure you visit some of the top photography spots in Amsterdam such as Sint Olofssteeg corner and Groenbuigwal canal towards the Zuiderkerk. Earplugs Most tourists stay in Amsterdam’s city centre and if you decide to do the same, bringing earplugs is the only way to make sure you get enough good night’s sleep. With all the popular bars and cafes, noise levels in the city centre remain high the entire evening and peak at about 1 am when all those places close for the night. Things are a little bit better in the morning but there’s still plenty of traffic and having earplugs at hand can be a real lifesaver. If you don’t like earplugs, you can still make a playlist that’ll serenade you to sleep . A good memory pillow Amsterdam is great but there are also places outside the city you might want to visit while you’re there. The Pyramid of Austerlitz and Bloemendaal Beach are just some of the other places that are worth the ride. If you want to prevent neck pain when riding on buses, bringing a good memory pillow is a great idea. Luckily, there are brands such as Go Travel that specialise in travel gadgets, meaning that you can find a quality memory pillow that’s guaranteed to help you avoid neck pain. Waterproof clothing If you plan to spend a couple of days in Amsterdam, there’s always a chance it’s going to rain. Since the last thing you want to do is spend the entire trip in your hotel room, bringing all kinds of waterproof clothes is recommended. Probably the most important item you need to have is a decent pair of boots that’ll protect you from catching the flu. Packing enough waterproof clothing will give you the courage to go outside and see the sights no matter how heavy the rain is. A mosquito repellent A mosquito repellent is one of those things you might want to have in your suitcase no matter where you’re going. When traveling to Amsterdam, you can be assured you’ll need it, especially if you’re traveling between early spring and mid-autumn. These little critters seem to be in love with Amsterdam’s canals and usually target buildings close to them. Although mosquitos in Amsterdam are annoying, you don’t have to worry as they don’t carry any diseases. In case you’re already there and you forgot to pack a mosquito repellent , applying lemon to your skin can help. Over to you Amsterdam is one of the most wonderful places you can visit and having the five things we talked about earlier is guaranteed to make your trip more enjoyable. The vibe will draw you back for more and you’ll soon start planning your next trip to the “Venice of the North.”

    Going on a road trip is a fun adventure and, if travelling in a group, definitely the most cost-effective means of travel. The best thing about it, however, lies in the fact that it gives you so much time and opportunity to hang out as a group and bond on a deep and personal level like never before. When it comes down to it, there’s no place that’s as road-trip friendly as the Australian outback. Beautiful landscapes, open road and plenty of opportunities for camping and sightseeing. Nonetheless, heading out with the girls into the unknown carries its own set of dangers, as well. What if something unexpected was to happen? Would you be able to respond accordingly and in a timely manner? It all depends on your overall preparedness and here are five tips to help you get going. Map out your itinerary and stay on the grid The first thing you need to do is plan the itinerary of your journey. Sure, you don’t know everything that lies ahead but with a simple consultation of apps like Google Maps, you should be able to figure out the very basics of the route that you’re about to take. Make sure that a person of confidence knows what this route is. Also, make sure to notify them along the road (via an IM service like Viber, Instagram DM or Facebook Messenger). This way, if anything goes wrong and the rescue party is needed, they’ll know where to look. The supplies One of the most reckless patterns of behaviour that you can engage in on one such a journey is the idea that you’ll be able to restock your supplies anywhere you go. This is especially true on your voyage through some parts of Australia ( like the outback ) that are sparsely inhabited. You can drive for hours and hours without encountering a gas stop or a store. This is why you need to have enough supplies (water and snacks) on you to be safe. Check the car Another thing you need to make sure of is that your car is in a proper working condition. Everything about it needs to be absolutely flawless. So, take it to a mechanic and have them perform all the necessary tests. Ideally, before a long-distance voyage, you would check your fluids, replace your wipers (a simple DIY task that virtually anyone can do) and replace your tyres. Sure, your tyres may still be in a decent condition but sometimes decent is simply not reliable enough. Instead, you should look for retailers of new tyres in Sydney and set yourself up for longevity. Be extra careful When it comes to on-road safety, you need to understand that it mostly depends on your patterns of behaviour. So, adjust your driving speed to road conditions, don’t take hitchhikers and have some kind of protection (a pepper spray or a stun gun) on you. Other than this, avoid driving at night and try to trust your intuition as much as you can. In the outback, it’s particularly dangerous to drive at night, especially in locations where there’s a danger of kangaroo and emu crossing . Keep valuables in a safe place On your trip, you won’t always be able to rely on your pin-based credit cards, which means that your wallet might contain more cash than you are comfortable with. Second, some girls plan a wild night out somewhere along the road, which involves make-up and (yes) even jewellery. Nonetheless, it’s quite important to point out that you won’t have many opportunities for crazy nightlife in the outback, until you reach your final destination or return back home. Not to mention the fact that you’ll also carry papers, documents and all sorts of things. Keeping these items safe is a top priority and keeping them all together in one place is usually not a smart move. Conclusion One of the worst things about reading this list and following these instructions lies in the fact that it often feels as if you’re expecting the worst to happen. Outback can seem like a vast and intimidating place. Keep in mind, that being aware of the fact that things might go wrong and taking pre-emptive steps against it isn’t being pessimistic – it’s just a matter of having common sense. Sure, the majority of the above-described hazards aren’t likely to happen but why not be prepared for them, just in case?

    Many people like to say that travelling to New Zealand feels like going to the end of the world because it is even farther away than Australia. However, despite the fact that it’s so far away and that it will take you 27 hours to get there if you’re travelling from Paris, for example, New Zealand is still worth visiting. If you’ve never been to New Zealand before, you’ll need a little bit of help to create a good travel itinerary and make sure you cover all the bases without missing out on anything worth visiting. Browse through online accommodation options First, you’ll want to look for accommodation options and see which one is best for you. Luckily, New Zealand has an array of available accommodation options. First, if you like to stay outdoors, camping is a great option. There are various camping sites in which you can pitch a tent or stay in your motorhome. You will have clean toilets, often hot showers too, and some of the sites even offer a kitchen. The prices are very affordable and go from $4 for children and up to $10 for adults per night. Make sure you book your campsite in advance. Hostels, hotels, apartments, and Couchsurfing are all also available, so browse through the Internet well before you opt for your accommodation. Check transportation deals New Zealand is composed of two islands – North Island and South Island, so if you want to visit both islands, you’ll need to switch between transportations. Starting from day one, if you chose to fly to Christchurch, a good idea would be to get a car rental from the Christchurch airport to your accommodation and continue touring the island by car. This is especially convenient if you're travelling as a couple or with a few friends. A car gives you plenty of flexibility and freedom to go where and whenever you want, without having to depend on a certain departure schedule. Internal flights are quite inexpensive, so you are free to check those out and do the New Zealand tour more quickly. To go from one island to another, you can also use a ferry instead of a plane. Where to go in New Zealand The highlights of the North Island are definitely the Bay of Islands for starters, where you can enjoy mesmerizing beaches and islands. Auckland is home to numerous volcanoes and real urban city life and it will certainly enchant you. If you want to learn more about the Maori culture, be sure to visit Rotorua. When you cross to the South Island, don't miss a chance to visit Abel Tasman National park and enjoy the lavishness of forests. The lovers of marine life will find Kaikoura fascinating, and if you've never seen a glacier in person, head to Franz Joseph and Fox Glacier. Queenstown will be a true delight for all adrenaline junkies, and if you’re craving water activities, be sure to pay a visit to Picton. Best time to visit New Zealand When you start planning your New Zealand trip, you should know what the best times to visit are. Being situated in the southern hemisphere, New Zealand’s spring is from September to November, summer is from December to February, autumn is from March to May, and winter from June and August. However, winter isn’t too cold and summer doesn’t get too warm, with temperatures ranging between 12 to 16°C in the winter and 20 to 25°C in the summer. Nevertheless, if you travel during winter, you should expect mountains on the South Island to be covered in snow. When it comes to rainfall, the north of the North Island gets more rain during the year, while on the South Island, rainfall is evenly spread throughout the year. During the summer months, prices will be much higher in New Zealand, because of the demand. If you plan to visit Queenstown, make sure you book early because it fills up. Final thoughts If you're planning to visit New Zealand for the first time, the tips we've just mentioned will be of great help. However, you should also do a bit more research on your own, and don't forget to check the reviews online and know for sure if you're picking the right accommodation or the restaurant. Budget carefully, and if you want to save some money, avoid peak seasons when prices go up everywhere.
