    Student Agency Review

    This weekend we planned a very impromptu trip to Moravia, eastern Czech Republic. After looking at trains, we decided a bus to Brno was going to be the easiest way to get to our final destination: Breclav. Once we decided to take the bus, we knew we would take Student Agency. We have traveled with them in the past and we were always happy with the service. So here’s what we think of the agency. The buses are clean and comfortable. The seats are really nice and when you put them back a bit, you might even sleep well. Even though there isn’t a whole lot of space for your…

    Canoeing: 10 Tips for your adventure

    Canoeing is a very typical Czech activity. Lots of people go on canoeing trips with their friends and family in the summer, because it is a fun and cheap way to enjoy the warm weather and have a little bit of an adventure. I have gone canoeing several times, so here are some of my tips, if any of you want to try it out! Water!! Bring lots of bottled water! Hopefully it’s going to be warm and sunny, but this means you need to buy bottled water that you can have with you all the time.

    Flying with Finnair

    When I decided to go to Japan, the biggest concern was getting tickets for the correct dates, price and availability. Seeing as I was buying these tickets less than two days before my intended departure, availability was key and we chose Finnair. It’s also the shortest route from Prague to Osaka, with 2 hours or so from Prague to Helsinki and then 9 hours from Helsinki to Osaka with a brief 3 hour layover. Pre-Flight Pre-flight procedures here are pretty standard. You get a reminder e-mail 24 hours ahead of time and you can check in, nothing to remark on. Everything worked as it should have and I was on…

    Mozambique

    Our three day trip to Mozambique was very relaxing, even though it was short. The road trip there from Johannesburg took a while and there are a couple things you should be prepared for if you’re going to take a trip like this. When preparing for this kind of trip, pack everything you might need. Bring plenty of drinks and food, not just as snacks but also to eat at your destination. Plan your route well, along with possible places to stop for food. You should also plan the route so that you know what kind of a road you will be driving on, whether it’s a highway or dirt…

    Zimbabwe

    In 2012 on my trip to South Africa, we decided to explore a little more, packed our bags and flew to Zambia and crossed over to Zimbabwe to see the Victoria Falls. This crazy short trip, only two days, a little north of South Africa was definitely worth it! We stayed at the Lokuthula Lodge, which has one main building, but more importantly, there are little huts, which is what we stayed in. Heads up, these huts aren’t closed all the way, they have a wall that is open, that you can close just with a flap door. So make sure you close the mosquito net around your bed, so that…
