Re-reading some of my posts I was left thinking that I only talk about the awesome side of traveling BUT sometimes things just suck! And there’s always one thing that makes things just a little bit better… a good old rant. So here you have mine (this is a long list so stay tuned!)
1) The tanoy speaker system thing on airplanes:
I hate hate hate this thing. Ok, I get that the pilot may want to introduce himself to flyers on each journey (although even that is beyond me, bus drivers don’t tell us their bloody name at the start of each journey, do they?!) but is it really necessary to pause my movie at a crucial point to tell me that we are at 30, 000 feet or whatever with an outdoor temperature of -14 degrees?! I don’t care, can I please continue to watch Transformers now?! With the horrible movie controls it’s almost impossible to rewind to the point you want too – it’s like some sick joke! Once you come to terms with that, you get another bloody update, “oh great, 32, 000 feet now – wonderful thanks”. Grrrrrrr. Also, why can’t I watch my movie from when I sit down in the plane? And why can’t I continue to watch it while we land?! I just don’t get it!
So there is rant number 1, please tell me someone else feels the same way as me about this!? Anyway, stay tuned for more annoying things from my travels.
Remember, never travel without travel insurance! And never overpay for travel insurance!
I use HeyMondo. You get INSTANT quotes. Super cheap, they actually pay out, AND they cover almost everywhere, where most insurance companies don't (even places like Central African Republic etc!).

Do you work remotely? Are you a digital nomad/blogger etc? You need to be insured too.
I use SafetyWing for my digital nomad insurance. It covers me while I live overseas. It's just $10 a week, and it's amazing! No upfront fees, you just pay week by week, and you can sign up just for a week if you want, then switch it off and on whenever. You can read my review here, and you can sign-up here!
