We want to help you see the world on a budget and have the best experience possible. Whether you’re looking to backpack across Europe or take a luxury vacation, we’ve got you covered.
SOME TRAVELLING FACTS
60% of the lakes on earth are located in Canada
The second largest country on the planet is home to 60% of the planet’s lakes. Still not amazed? How about we rephrased: the number of lakes in Canada is bigger than the rest of the lakes on the planet combined! The largest lake in Canada is the Great Bear Lake, spreading over 31,153 km² and going as deep as 435 meters.
600 people work at the Eiffel Tower daily
When it comes to the most famous tower in the world, it seems like the work is never done. The Eiffel Tower is the daily work place of 600 Parisians, making it not only one of the biggest tourist attractions worldwide, but also one of the largest job generating businesses in the French tourism industry.
Jet lag feels worse if you travel from west to east
Science has proved that jet lag feels worse if you travel from west to east. Our internal clock has a natural cycle of sleep/wake modes that is slightly longer than 24 hours. Travelling from west to east makes the day shorter, while travelling from east to west makes the day longer, making it easier for the brain to adapt.
Working while on vacation is worse than you think!
Research shows that sifting through work emails and participating in “work-related activities”, such as messaging and going over work materials, results in you remembering less from your vacation.
We started Travel Tips in 2016 after our own budget-friendly trip around Southeast Asia. We had such a great time and wanted to help others have the same experience. We knew that we could show people how to travel without breaking the bank.
Since then, we’ve been sharing our best tips and advice on our blog and social media. We hope that our tips will inspire you to get out there and explore the world!
