Yoga is everywhere these days. It's fair to say it's become well and truly mainstream.

By re-jigging your spending habits, you can spend the same amount of money (or less) and get so much more for it. Essentially having a luxury holiday for less cash. This is how I've been travelling for years - knowing exactly where I want to spend money, and exactly where we can opt for cheap (without it effecting too much).
I have never been one to be wardrobe-ready when such occasions demand such practicality. The biggest, most notable problem has always been my lack of appropriate shoe-wear.

It's the media that makes the fuss, not the Royals themselves. So I hope the world will give them a break. They're not lauding it over anybody, nor would you ever hear a Cambridge say, as some celebrities have been known to, "Do you know who I am?" And if their loveliness is due to being "boring", really? Then give me some more "boring" to counter our high-drama, high-octane lives.
