How I Deal With My Travel Pet Peeves

My Travel Pet Peeves

As you guys know I absolutely love to travel and see new places, experience new things and learn about other places. But just like most people that travel I also have a couple of travel pet peeves that can kind of ruin the whole experience of travelling. Recently, I took a poll/survey on what I should blog about or what posts I should write on and this was one of the suggestions and I thought it was a good idea so I decided to write about it. Here are my travel pet peeves and how I deal with them:


I’m plant based so that makes finding food during travel a bit more difficult and complicated and it does not help that I have a bunch of allergies. And of course airplane food is not always the best. I tend to find it a bit bland and it has that airplane food taste- I don’t know how to describe it but it just has this very specific taste and smell that kind of makes me nauseous. It’s also difficult to find vegan food in certain airlines. It can all be a bit frustrating and it can end up being a hassle when you do decide to travel.
Therefore, there are two things I like to do to help deal with this. Firstly, I do a lot of research and find out what airlines or whatever form of travel I choose to go buy offers vegan options. I also like to do research in advance and find out that the place I am planning to travel to has vegan options because not all places are very vegan friendly.
Next, I also like to make sure that I carry some food with me. For example, if I am going on a long flight where I know I will get hungry I try to pack a meal that is easy to carry with me or at the very least I try to carry some snacks like some Clif bars or a pack of chips or something.


One thing I hate that really gets on my nerves are delays. It’s especially annoying when you have to catch a connecting flight because you need to get there by a certain time. Honestly though, delays are kind of a part of travel and as annoying as they can be they are inevitable because you can’t really control the time, weather or external factors that may cause delays. The best thing to do is be prepared for them.
I would highly recommend not booking flights that are really close together. Instead have a couple of hours in between flights in case one of them gets delayed. Also, always keep an extra pair of clothes and some other necessary items with you in case you are forced to spend the night at your stop over city/country/state.


I like people in general but let’s be honest. There is nothing like a really long flight with crying babies, arguing adults and loud sleepers to make you hate humanity. Travelling is great and you will end up meeting lots of awesome people but you will also end up meeting some of the worst people ever. Like seriously EVER.
To deal with this what I like to do is always have headphones with you to drown out the noise and keep a book or books with you that you can read so as to tune out what is going on around you. I know these don’t fix everything but they do help a lot.

Rude Workers

I have been very lucky to have mostly dealt with really great people while travelling but once in a while you do run into really rude people who are working for the airline or whatever form of travel you are taking. Unfortunately, since they usually control a lot of stuff to do with your travel you are kind of forced to be the bigger person and just stay calm as much as possible.
The best way to combat this is to remain patient and not lose your temper. Try to keep calm and talk to them as politely as possible. If you feel like this is still not going anywhere try to talk to someone else who seems more friendly or helpful.

Dirty Bathrooms

Dirty bathrooms are such a travel pet peeve of mine and they are so often unavoidable when travelling especially when you travel by plane. For me, the best way to deal with this has been to make sure I always carry a bunch of hand sanitizer, wet wipes and lots of tissues with me when I travel.

Your Thoughts

Do you like to travel? Do you travel often? What is one place you really want to travel to? What are some of your travel pet peeves? How do you deal with these travel peeves?

Owning Property In Dubai’s Luxury Golf Estates

Dubai’s luxury accommodations have always made a mark on world’s real estate market and they have been advertised to be among the best ones around. Many new developments and communities have been built over the years and they all have their own exclusivity and special features that grab the attention of most discerning of home buyers.

There are many developments across Dubai that exploit the exclusivity of golf and the aspiration value it has to offer being a status symbol. With many golf courses in the city, there has been an increase in the golfing properties across the town. As golf estates in Dubai offer a perfect mix of landscaped greens and privacy combined with high ROI, investors are ever ready to grab every opportunity they get to spend here.

Some of the top Golf communities in Dubai include Emirates Hills, Arabian Ranches, The Lakes, Jumeirah Golf Estate and Victory Heights and they all present some of the top-selling luxury accommodations with all premium features and amenities on offer that you could have asked for. In fact, the best among the lot is the lush scenery and landscaping that adds to the value of luxury accommodations in these communities giving them a perfect golfers’ touch. Due to the luxury features and prime golf course location of these properties, more and more investors are planning to throw their money at these residences. And, with high demand, the developers themselves are focusing more on developing similar establishments.

So, if you want to own an investment property in Dubai, you should definitely buy one with connection to a golf course. The reports suggest that estimated premiums for such integrated properties are 20% higher compared to the properties that don’t have any golf connection. This means golf courses are only the second most-favorite attraction after waterfronts when it comes to desirable locations in Dubai. In fact, that shouldn’t be restricted to investors only. And, even if you are looking for a second home in
Dubai, these stats should be encouraging for you to buy a property in one of the luxury golf estates in Dubai.

If you talk about Jumeirah Golf Estates, it extends a world-class lifestyle not just for the investors but also for the residents where the recently opened Clubhouse is the latest luxury on offer and is also the reason behind its increasing popularity. The property also houses a couple of championship golf courses that have been designed by the experts to offer an impeccable golfing experience.

The latest district being released at the Jumeirah Golf Estates was Al Andalus. It combines some of the most amazing Mediterranean apartments and townhouses to redefine luxury living for the residents of Dubai. The residents of Al Andalus enjoy exactly the same lifestyle and quality that is on offer for everyone else residing in the Jumeirah Golf Estates.

So, if you are planning to buy a property here at the Jumeirah Golf Estates to taste the kind of lifestyle people enjoy here, you can expect to pay Dh5 million for semi-detached, entry-level villas. However, if you have the luxury of a massive budget, spend Dh30 million to put your hands at a 12000 sq. ft. property. Obviously, the amenities on offer and the size, landscape and location of these properties would vary accordingly. And, believe it or not, it’s just the tip of the iceberg. You’re sure to explore much more when you’ll actively start looking for a property here and see what kind of masterpieces are available for sale.

So, what are you waiting for then? Take the plunge and invest in one of the luxurious properties out there in Dubai’s Golf Estates. You’d surely experience a lifestyle you haven’t imagined ever before.

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

Getting A Job At Uni: My Top Tips!

Working while at university is harder then it seems so here are a few very helpful tips to help you find a job!

Abi Louise Allen

A longer post today focusing on what so many students worry about…

I think we all know university can be a huge financial struggle for a lot of people, some people only get a small loan that doesn’t cover their rent, some get no loan and others are not in a position to borrow money when needed. So, for many people getting a job is a necessity while studying.

For me, my loan unfortunately only covers half my annual rent total and all the money I saved working over summer just wouldn’t be enough to cover 6 months rent, food money, social money and transport and therefore, I had to find a job.

Whilst most universities are based in cities, and you’d think finding a job because of this would be easy, for students this just isn’t the case, for many businesses aren’t willing to…
