Into Traveling - For Those Who Love The Open Road

Welcome to – A place to hang out for those who love to travel and everything associated with the traveling lifestyle.

Whether you are looking for inspiration for your next trip, want to buy some travel related equipment – like a tent or rucksack or bike, or even a folding travel guitar – or you just want to find a cheap flight, this is the place to be.

There are so many ways in which traveling can be enjoyed – hiking, biking, boating, cruises, flying, driving – just to mention the main ones. And then there’s adventure travel – a whole new dimension. What about a balloon ride or some rock climbing, or hang gliding or horseback riding. And then there’s educational travel – what about learning Spanish in Spain or settling into life in a yoga ashram for a couple of weeks? Perhaps a week or two on a bicycle tour, being inspired by the scenery, and camping out under the stars at night.

For having a real break from your daily routine, you need at least a couple of weeks for a real traveling holiday – to allow some time to get into the rhythm of a different lifestyle. Go on a cruise for a couple of weeks in warm southern waters, or spend a month cycling through the beautiful French countryside. And if you are serious about learning a foreign language, there are all kinds of residential language courses available, and you will want to spend at least a couple of months if you are really serious about learning another language.

Choosing Outdoor Travel Gear and Accessories

If you are going to be flying, then packing your cases is often an issue, because we would often like to stuff in as much as possible to take on our trip. Since luggage weight restrictions, especially on cheap flights, seem to be getting tighter all the time, it could be very useful to get some portable travel luggage scales. These can save you a lot of stress when packing for a trip. Taking along a first aid kit is also a good idea, and perhaps get a gps navigation app for your smartphone. And unless you know that you are going to be in sunny climes all the time, it wouldn’t hurt to get some good travel rain gear to take along. We have many more suggestions for travel products in our travel equipment and accessories section.

Before starting on a trip, you will want to decide on where you are going to stay. Will you stay in one place for the whole of your trip? If so, you may want to consider something other than a hotel, as it may be cheaper. For example, you could try a holiday apartment, so that you can do your own cooking when you want to, and probably have more available space. Or possibly a home exchange might be a way to save even more money. However, if you do decide to stay in a hotel, then you will want to check out our opinion of the best booking sites for finding a hotel deal online.
