Are you totally in love with bike tours? Me too! However, one thing that lets us down when we want to go for long tours with our faithful companions is the expense. Already the process of getting the bike ready can be so expensive. It can even make you think of just letting go off the trip.
But the good news are that you can actually go bike touring on a budget! Initially, I thought the only time to go for a long journey with my bike was when I had huge chunks of money in my savings account. But I have come to realize it doesn’t have to be expensive, and I have learned several tips that I am going to share with you so you can travel on a budget to wherever you want and at any time.
Why buy leather luggage when there are so many new materials seeing the light of day? Isn’t leather old fashioned and out of date?
If you think that, we strongly advise you to think again. There are several reasons that leather is an outstanding choice of material when you’re looking for a new bag or luggage. Or why not a tablet case or a wallet?
We here at Travel Gear have to admit that we have lived in leather-related ignorance. There is so much to know about this material that we didn’t have a clue about. Now we do, and we want to share this knowledge with you. Let’s go!
Going on a long haul flight, or perhaps a long-drawn train ride? Want time to pass quickly, and to arrive at your destination feeling alert and refreshed? You know what you need to do, right? 😉
Well, sleep of course! But on a plane with noises, lights and no bed in sight that is not always the easiest thing to do. It’s hard to relax properly when you’re stuck in a plane seat. Perhaps your neighbor is playing a movie on the laptop with a constantly changing screen. Lights are turned on and off, and your neck is starting to feel stiff.
But where there is a problem, there is also someone working out solutions to that problem! As is our commitment here at Travel Gear Depot we have searched the web for you to find some tips and aids to help you get your beauty sleep onboard 🙂 Read on for the travel sleep accessories we found and love!Read more
There are many ways to get to see the landscape of a place you are visiting. You can take a bus ride, rent a car, take a walk or perhaps even a helicopter tour!
You can also use someone else’s legs.
No, I’m not suggesting your travel partner should carry you, or that you’d commit some hideous act of leg swapping or anything like that 😮
This is about one of mankind’s best and most loyal friends since thousands of years, that have carried us far beyond what we would have managed on our own to legs.Read more
While backpacking becomes a more and more common type of travelling, most of us need more than just a backpack to contain all of our travelling needs. Or, we don’t care to carry all of our stuff on our backs. A good travel luggage is a must to get the best travelling experience. But the current traveller’s tribe is divided into two factions: the softsiders and the hardsiders (Okay, I made the terms up!). Nevertheless, choosing between softside and hardside travel luggage is a never ending dilemma among travellers. Both have upsides and downsides, and it’s up to you to choose which one fits your needs best.
If you’re torn between the two sides, you need to know them well before you can choose one of the two. While the name seems to tell you all, they have deeper personalities behind those pretty cases. Let’s have a look!Read more
Travellers around the world most likely agree that luggage rules and restrictions often are confusing as well as frustrating. This is especially true for those who often use different airlines to go places.
There is also the airport’s “Bermuda Triangle”, that sometimes makes your luggage disappear. But, the major problem is the inconsistency of rules and regulations about luggage. Hardly any two airlines have the same size restrictions, which is especially true when it comes to carry on luggage size.
To add to the problem, the airlines can change the rules to their heart’s content the way that they see fit. And that without prior notice.
But why do airlines put the rules up in the first place? What are the factors that will determine the luggage limitations? Let’s dig a little deeper!Read more
We here at Travel Gear Depot love travel. But we also love our planet. We do not believe that some people have the right to sustain a lifestyle that means putting limits to other’s.
So what does this have to do with you and your travels?Read more
Golden beaches, a turquoise-blue sea with salty cool water, warm nights. Roads lined with blooming oleander. A town with narrow streets among white houses with blue doors and window frames. Cozy restaurants with fresh fish and sea food.
Sounds like the place of your dreams for a family vacation, right?Read more
Does it really matter how you pack your stuff into your suitcase or carry-on? There’s still that much of space each item occupies, right?
WRONG! The way you pack can mean the difference between using both a checked bag and a carry-on, or just using a carry-on. Or perhaps, if you’re travelling with a travel buddy, using one checked bag for the two of you instead of one each. We’re not kidding!
