Info For Backpackers, Gap Years and Working Holiday
With the shock news that Vienna, Austria has stolen the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ crown from Melbourne. We here at Welcome To Travel were able to secure an exclusive interview with the actual city to get their thoughts on the whole debacle. Today isn’t a normal day though is it, today is the day after Melbourne lost something they thought was theirs (it has been for 7 years), the title of World’s Most Liveable City.
So we often get stuck in the centre or the beach suburb of a City and there’s nothing wrong with that, it makes things easy to get to and it’s just nice to be by the beach-we’re on holiday right? However, something we often hear is travellers wanting to see places out of the City centre, cool suburbs that are sparse on tourists and that locals like to frequent.
So you’ve made eye contact across the free breakfast, engaged in lackluster conversation when entering the dorm and now you’ve even passed each other in the corridor. The time is now – ask them out. It’s hard to know what to do and where is good to go on a date when travelling. You also don’t want to break the bank! Well, it’s a good job that the Welcome to Travel team are real-life romantic heroes then isn’t it? 😉
We all know travelling is about broadening the horizons. For most, surprising and challenging the palate is a big part of that, for us, it’s our favourite part in fact. There are still sometimes though where you need that familiarity. You may be homesick, hungover or perhaps ill- sometimes you just need some home comforts.
As a Brit that now lives in Australia, there’s something that makes me feel lucky every summer. EVERY SINGLE SUMMER. It’s not just the fact it’s warm, we know Melbourne is warmer than Yorkshire (slightly), but it’s actually the sensation of finishing work and feeling like you’re on holiday.
Whether you are looking up a destination you’re about to travel to, stalking your favourite travel blogger on Insta stories or scrolling constantly through #wanderlust, there’s no hiding from the fact that Instagram is a great tool to get you excited about your future travels.
