Jack Kerouac

The beat poet, author and traveller Jack Kerouac is probably best known for his journeys across America, which were documented in the book ‘On The Road’. Right at the beginning of the book, main character Sal meets the ‘excited with life’ Dean Moriarty, who both decide to take a trip to San Francisco. The pair are looking for a way to leave their normal hustle and bustle behind, which is the reason so many travellers pack up and head off.

Young, Free and Single? 8 Holiday Destinations for Party Goers

You’re young, good looking and bored of your local town’s slightly depressing nightlife scene, which consists of couple of grotty clubs that everyone packs into and a handful of pubs dominated by grumpy old men. Surely it must get better than this?

It does.

Modern travel is cheap and almost entirely painless compared to in the not-so-distant past. Since the fall of communism in the early 90’s, large parts of the world, which were previously out of bounds, have opened up to tourism and countries now compete to welcome visitors in their droves.

Why Bother Getting Travel Insurance?

That vacation you’re about to take is supposed to get rid of your stress, but if your travel plans go awry, it might actually cause you stress!  That is, unless you have travel insurance.

Travel insurance isn’t required for you to step foot on a plane or ship, but getting it is a really good idea!  Without it, you risk getting hit with expensive medical bills, paying for everything you lost when the airline misplaced your luggage, and even footing the bills for plane mishaps.

Think about it — if you go to a foreign country on vacation, your regular medical insurance may not cover you.  What happens if you get sick or injured?  What if you need to get home in an air ambulance?  Before you know it, you could rack up tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses!
