    Travel Tips: Japan

    This October, we were lucky enough to go to Japan again. And this time, we went together. So, we’ve compiled a list of tips for you, if you’re planning a trip to Japan. Always have cash on you. Foreign currency ATMs are hard to come by and you’re never sure a vendor will accept your debit card. Download Google Translate (and Japanese) before you go. It’ll be a lifesaver. If your hotel or Airbnb offer pocket wifi, go for it! And bring an external battery to recharge. Wifi hotspots are almost as hard to find as foreign currency ATMs. Get a JR pass. They’re flexible and will let you take…

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!

And if I’m flying on a long haul flight, add a travel pillow and refillable water bottle. But what are the five items it all boils down to that I can’t live without? Important documents…

    Bus Rides: How to make the time pass faster

    I just went to New York, so I spent 9 hours on a bus over the weekend. Bus rides can get long and boring, so here’s a couple of things you can do 🙂 1. Listen to music My personal recommendation is the Hamilton: An American Musical soundtrack. The whole soundtrack is about 2.5 hours long, so it fills up your time very nicely.

If you get too lonely and sad (which might happen), take out a $10 bill and stroke Alexander Hamilton’s face, it will make you feel better (jk, because that would be weird, right?). Any music will do, though.…
