You can expect the dreaded layover if you decide to venture abroad, and your expected time in the air exceeds a few hours. Time spent waiting for your next connection can be anywhere from sprinting to the next gate to catch your connecting flight, to setting up camp and thwarting opportunist thieves by entwining yourself … Continue reading Layovers – love them or hate them, you can’t get away from them

Travel means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Have you ever heard someone say they're travelling to put off being an adult? To put off real life?

This was the ultimate work life balance for a single male in their mid to late 20's. Flying home was not as appealing as turning my attention towards foreign shores in the hopes of leaving the red Western Australian dirt behind, replaced by days spent by the beach, swimming over coral reefs, treks through jungles, visiting ancient temples, and weeks spent up to my armpits in snow in the Japanese Alps.

One beneficial thing I have recently incorporated into my daily exercise routine is HANGING. … Continue reading A different kind of hanging out
Another easy and effective exercise that needs very little space and no special equipment is High Knees. This is amazing as both a warm-up exercise and mixed in with another exercise (like burpees for example) to keep your heart rate firing, improve your range of movement and compliment any HIIT routine. I like it especially … Continue reading High Knees
