Kaleidoscopic Wandering
Okay, so if you’re off on a cruise you can skip the airport advice. But you might want to take a look at some tips on staying safe at sea. As always, research is the key. Oh, and it’s probably best to avoid trying to replicate Kate Winslet’s front-of-ship pose from Titanic. You knew that, right?

Your Worst Travel Experience
Nomadic Matt’s Travel Site

When you’re on holiday, it’s all too easy to think the unexpected will never happen. As travel insurers, we know it does. Some of you may even have a holiday horror story of your own. When Nomadic Matt opened his blog for his readers to share their experiences, the responses came flooding in. Some of them are humorous, some of them scary (being stranded alone in Harlem at 2am is no joke), but all of them underline how important it is to make sure you’re properly protected on your travels. Have a read.
