Some creature comforts for your getaway
There's nothing like taking to the road and catching up with new cultures, people and places. Everyone has their own idea about what they want from a getaway: café lounging or club-hopping, sightseeing or thrill-seeking. I love being pleasantly disorientated by strange foods and unfamiliar streets myself. You could call this 'being lost' but I like to stay optimistic (if you prefer to stay on track however, a satnav is always handy).
Much of the magic of travel though is leaving the familiar behind - still, no matter where your tastes take you, there are slices of home that are always welcome. After all, nobody ever romanticised about forgetting the corkscrew and there are few things worse than an airport layover without distractions.
So, read on for some tips on staying spruce and entertained wherever you go as well as some suggestions for capturing the moment - all without weighing you down.
