It’s a favourite gripe of travellers. Why do people stand in the aisle as soon as the seatbelt light goes off? Turns out there are several reasons, and some of them may actually help you deplane faster.
The decision was made. The plans for China were scrapped. Me and one of my closest friends were instead going to meet up in the Philippines for almost 2 weeks of sun, sand, and tarsiers. I just had to book my flight. In the process, I discovered an unexpected trick that saved me $400. How?

When you think of budget airlines I bet Ryanair is one of the first ones that comes to mind, isn’t it? They advertise prices so low that you figure they can’t be true. Well, they are…sort of. Flying Ryanair can be cheap but it can also test your fine print reading skills and the limits of your patience. Make a wrong move and it could cost you.

“Is jet lag a real thing?” he asked as my head bobbed in front of my computer screen. Day three after returning from my trip to Asia and I was exhausted. If you’ve never experienced it, let me tell you, jet lag is indeed a very real thing. Crossing more than two time zones usually comes with the added bonuses of fatigue, disrupted sleep patterns, irritability, loss of appetite, trouble concentrating and more. In just over two weeks I’m going to be travelling back to Korea and most likely facing another fight with jet lag. This time I’m going to arm myself for battle and I intend to be victorious.
