Through the eyes of Paula...

With the summer season closely approaching, many people will want to start planning their summer vacation (or just daydream about visiting exotic locations while doing important real-life work). Either way, travel is moving to the forefront of people’s minds, and many would like to know about what places are popular and trendy. There are gems all over the world – some hidden, some well-known, and some emerging into popularity. Here are five countries that are buzz-worthy for this year:

  1. Japan: Japan is a well-loved favourite by millions of people, and has been so for a very long time. You can experience almost any kind of scenario here: the hustle and bustle of city life, or the serene natural landscapes. Japan’s rich culture, both modern and ancient, permeates throughout the country, and there is never a shortage of things to experience. One excellent location in Japan is Kyoto. It used to be Japan’s capital city, and it has an abundance of historical significance and lovely temples.

Through the eyes of Kevin...

Although there are multiple ways to purchase flight tickets, the most common method is through online websites. Once people solidify their travel dates, they choose to book their flights in advance to ensure that they’ll get to choose from a variety of routes for the most affordable fares.

There are some online flight sites that may be a bit overwhelming and confusing especially to new users. I was once helping my mom buy flight tickets from a travel website. Once we had selected our flight route, seating and completed the purchase, we realized that the price was not in Canadian dollars but U.S. Dollars, meaning the price was a bit more than we had expected.

You may be on your way to a tropical destination for the next two weeks, but first, you have to bear a long flight in a cramped airplane seat. Sure, an in-flight movie (if it's good) can pass a couple hours of dull flight time, but what are you going to do with the rest? Depending on your interests, and the length of your flight, there are several things you can do to keep yourself busy and stimulated on an airplane. Here are some of our own tried and tested tips for keeping busy on a long flight.

Firstly, it is important to get up and walk around during your flight. Taking a break from your cramped seating position will allow blood to properly flow through your body, reducing tension and relieving pain.  You don't want to be that person who gets up every 15 minutes, constantly disturbing those sitting around you, but getting up every so often will make sitting down for long periods of time that much easier. It will also be easier to pass the time if your legs and back don't feel like they are encased in cement.

Once you have given your legs a break, try engaging your mind a bit. If you have anything outstanding for your trip, try and get it done on the plane. Not only will it pass the time, but it will give you a chance to tie up any loose ends that you may have, allowing you to kick your feet up and relax once you get to your destination. You can also bring a book and some fun puzzle games to keep you busy. You may not get through a whole book, or finish all of the puzzles, but it will definitely help keep your mind stimulated as you pass the time.
