If you like to read information about a specific destination we recommend that you use the navigation to the right or the search function to find what you are looking for. Below you will find some general travel tips that can help you make the most of your trips.

  • Leave room for spontaneity. It is good to plan your trips in advance and to know what you want to do and see while you are on vacation but you should always leave time for discovering things you didn’t know were there and things that you only discover once you arrived at the destination. Planning every minute of your trip also risks turning the trip into a chore rather than the relaxing change of pace it should be.
  • Do not pack too heavy. A lot of people bring a lot more than they really need when they travel. That makes travel a lot harder than it has to be and leaves less room to bring stuff home from your trip. Se what you really need and only bring that. Remember that most hotels have laundry services so you really do not need to bring clean clothes for your entire trip.
  • Think about what you might want to bring home before you go and pack accordingly. If you as an example is going to a poor country like Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico you will be able to buy clothes and other stuff at bargain prices which means that you might not want to bring to much from home. This is especially true if you are a backpacker or budget traveller. It is as an example possible to buy a new silk shirt for USD2 in Nicaragua.
  • Make sure you got all the required visas before you leave your home country.
  • Check all entry requirements before you go. Some countries will as an example require that you have a return ticket out of the country to let you in.
  • Never be afraid to go off the beaten track to discover new gems that aren’t in the guidebooks. Many of your best travel experiences will come where you least expect them.
  • Take full advantage of the internet to find the best information about different destinations and the cheapest prices for airline tickets and hotel nights e.g. the Swedish site restresor.nu that lists last-minute trips from Sweden.
  • If you need to finance your trip there are plenty of sites offering valuable fast loans.

What is a flag?

A flag is a piece of fabric, often rectangular or triangular, that is used as a symbol, signalling device, or decoration. Flags are typically differentiated by their colours, patterns, and emblems, which can represent nations, states, organizations, or various other entities or ideas.

Historically, flags were used primarily in warfare to identify and rally troops, but today they serve a wide variety of functions. National flags, for instance, symbolize a country’s history, culture, and values. Flags also play a significant role in maritime signalling, ceremonies, sporting events, and political movements. The study of flags is known as “vexillology.”
