travel young

If you intend to take a trip down under planning your budget should be an important part of your preparations. Yes Australia is many atlas inches from pretty much anywhere else (no offence New Zealand), so your flight is unlikely to be cheap, but there are ways to save on an Aussie adventure while still having a bonza time.
Based on the prices of four and five star hotels, these 10 destinations offer excellent value for money and won't break the bank. Ranging from the mountains of Andorra to the shores of the Albanian Riviera, these hidden gems are slightly off the beaten track and perfect for an autumn getaway.
For British citizens, a six-month stay is allowed visa free for Hong Kong (HK) and with cheap flights from London matching those of Bangkok around the £350 mark, Asia's international city is seeing more and more backpackers stop by on their travels.
For me, owning a campervan is something more than having a classic car to show off, it is part of the family. You don't get funny stories from your holidays across the UK if you leave it in the garage. Almost six years on from that eventful first breaking down the van is a bigger part of the family than ever, and selling it would be like ripping the heart out of the family.
The grounds contain 14 enormous beer tents spread across a 42-acre area. That's somewhere in the region of 32 football fields to you and me.
It's never too late to travel, never too late in your life and never too late in the year. With the end of summer and weather cooling off, many travellers are trying to take advantage of one last trip before it gets too cold. I totally understand. From my experience, I believe that a great choice for that last trip before it gets too cold is going to a festival.
Lots of people see Ibiza and automatically associate it with endless parting in world renowned clubs. Yes, those words are synonymous with certain parts of the island, but there is another side of Ibiza that offers idyllic beaches, fantastic Spanish culture and quaint towns.
At first glance, it's easy to see why people might snub La Tomatina as a tourist trap... there is nothing more exhilarating than ditching a handful of rotten tomatoes at the face of a decrepit Chinese lady, only to turn around to a large German man waiting to smoosh a whole one in your eyeball.
Homosexuals who don't travel will still identify with what it's like to be an outsider, or what it's like to come out more than once, but crossing countries solo amplifies the scale of these challenges significantly. Overwhelming? You betcha.
Nearly a third of students say a road trip though America is their most desired YOLO travel experience, followed by a safari
A wolf was right in front of our car... We now expected to be its dinner, served in a forest and teared to pieces, raw. I kept my eyes shut, not wanting to see its claws scratching our windows and waving 'hello' and 'adieu' to us, all in a flash.
Travelling is extremely popular with students and graduates but we don't always have the time (or money!) to go gallivanting around the world for months. I have just got back from 8 glorious days in bella Italia- no, not the restaurant- beautiful Italy!
A request from the United States calling on a selection of overseas airports to implement even stricter security measures
Not much tends to exceed expectations, especially when you're talking about the most well-loved festival on the planet, Glastonbury. But come Monday, I walked away from Worthy Farm with my mind blown at just how peaceful and well organised this festival was... yet Glastonbury seemed to break all the rules that most festivals push so hard. So what is it that Glastonbury does so well?
What's sitting at the root of so much that we do wrong in this world? Prejudice, ignorance and bigotry. How does this state of mind manifest in us? By being insular, lacking empathy, allowing ourselves to be only familiar with our little corner of the world. An antidote? Travel.
An American student is touring the wonders of Europe this summer. So far, so normal. Except this guy calls himself the “Bathrobe

Hundreds of thousands of students come to the UK every year to study, but what about students travelling the other way - those
It's tempting to be lazy on your gap year and do what everyone else does; travel to Thailand and go to a full moon party
A gap year doesn't always have to be about backpacking in Australia or "finding yourself" in Thailand. Even your summer holidays
