Anyone who travels for work knows that every second of the trip is essential and everything that is possible to do to make the stay away from home is a great help. Starting with the suitcase!who travels to work knows that every second of the trip is essential and Anyone everything that is possible to do to make the stay away from home is a great help. Starting with the suitcase! 

Some entrepreneurs have shared with Business Insider their tips on how to pack a suitcase with everything you need and make life quicker during a business class flight with cheap tickets. Check out the following tips.

1.Choose a few colors

Pack your suitcase with just a palette of colors, and preferably some dark tone. There are two less things to worry about: you do not need to think about combinations and dark colors hide stains or small dirt in case any unforeseen occur.

  1. Have a kit of essentials

A last-minute meeting or an off-budget business dinner is common on business trips. So it is important to have a kit of essential and varied items always at hand. So keep your personal belongings, cables and chargers necessary for your electronic devices and documents always around if you need them for some reason.

  1. Check the weight of your suitcase at home

Always check the baggage weight limit of the airline you are going to use cheap flights and check the weight of your bag before arriving at the airport.

  1. Two suits are enough

For men, two suits should be more than enough for the trip. With shirt changes, you have no problem keeping the same suits.

For women the ideal are two blazers and for each pair of pants and a skirt, one can be used already on the way, to avoid extra luggage.

  1. Learn to bend without kneading

One tip to minimize the creases of a suit is to fold it from the inside out and wrap it around soft items, not to press the fabric and not knead much while traveling. In addition, you can carry an extra belt to put on the collar of the shirt to prevent it from forming creases and marks.

Instead of folding your clothes, one option is to roll up shirts and pants to save space and avoid creases in clothing.

Divide the luggage by weights inside the bag 

Place the heavier items near the wheels of the bag and the lighter stack of clothes on top to keep the bag balanced. Thus, the heavier items do not crush the lighter ones and the clothes knead less.

  1. Shoes and extra spaces

The shoes can be used as a space to put the socks or some object of the same size, to preserve the format of the shoe and to save space

  1. Portable Battery

In a business trip it is important to ensure that the battery of your appliances lasts until the arrival at the destination point. Charge everything before you board or carry portable chargers.

  1. Copies

As a precaution, always carry a copy of your passport, driver’s license among other necessary documents or have a photo of them saved on your phone.

If something is lost, the process of retrieving items will be infinitely easier. And along the same lines, always have copies of presentations and paperwork. Therefore, cheap ticket flights are available if you buy online in advance as it’s always good to be safe!

How To Prep For Your Whale Watching Trip – guest post by Mia at Sydney Princess Cruises

Whale watching is an amazing experience which should not be missed if you have the opportunity. If you are living in Sydney or plan to visit it between May and November this year, you should definitely put the jaw-dropping whale watching experience on your list of things to do. Whales are wonderful creatures and display their awe inspiring majesty by jumping and breaching the surface of the ocean.

There are several whale watching summer boat cruise options in Sydney. So before you venture into whale watching there are certain things you need to prepare yourself for. They are as follows:

  1. Know when the whale watching season is

This is the most important and obvious tip. You don’t want to get excited and find out at the last minute that there are no whale watching cruises available or even if you go, you don’t get your money’s worth by not seeing any whale. Whales are migrating mammals, so they are active during both summers and winters. This is one reason why you wouldn’t find any humpback whales near Sydney between December and April – it’s off season!

  1. Find out where the best whale hangout is

Whales are social mammals and tend to swim together in groups or “schools” as they are called. They can also be found travelling separately with their offspring and like to socialize with other whales. Ask your local whale watching tourism guide or centre where they plan to take you.

  1. Prep for the weather

You need to prepare yourself for any rough weather. Strong winds and high tides aren’t favourable for whale watching. Lucky for you, Sydney experiences rough seas during December and January, when the whales are halfway on their migration to Hawaii. That does not however mean that you skip out on checking the local weather forecast before making any plans for whale watching.

  1. Your whale watching gear
  • Sydney gets a lot of sun during the summer and is famous for its beach culture and coastal life so always use a good SPF level sunscreen. Wear sunglasses and hats as well to protect yourself from any glaring sunlight.
  • Take a good camera which can zoom quite ahead so that you can take great pictures for your whale watching
  • Get good binoculars for some closer views.
  • Wear appropriate clothing, even though it might be summers but it can get windy or chilly at sea, so always take a jacket with you.
  • Pack some food for your hunger cravings. Most whale watching cruises offer food so you don’t have to bring any. It’s included in their package.
  • If you get seasick or don’t know if you are prone to sea sickness, it is always a good idea to bring your medicines with you.
  1. Choose the best whale watching tour

It’s really important to do your research in order to get the best whale watching experience and your money’s worth. There are many great whale watching tours available in Sydney during summer, which offer attractive packages for everyone. So choose wisely and enjoy the experience.

Some people enjoy sun bathing on the beach, others having roasts and barbeques in their backyard while you can take it up a notch by doing it on a cruise and actually relive the day by the Sydney Harbour.  There is so much to do on Australia Day. Other than the fireworks and the food, there is ferry racing, fly-overs and tall ship parade, tugboat ballet and much more.

The ship from the worldÕs largest cruise line is too big to get under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and if tipped on her stern, the 292.6 metre long Carnival Spirit would stretch more than 42 metres above the observation deck of Sydney Tower, the cityÕs tallest building. Sailing into Sydney with up to 2,680 guests and 1,000 crew, Carnival Spirit offers more accommodation than AustraliaÕs largest hotel, the 658-room Crown Metropol in Melbourne and has more balcony cabins than any other ship based in Australia. With the steepest and fastest waterslide at sea, over 40 onboard activities per day and 20 restaurants, bars and lounges Ð big is definitely better on Carnival Spirit Ð SydneyÕs latest holiday destination.

Many cruises specially decorate your entire boat with special Australia Day themed items and flags, party memorabilia, etc., so that you truly enjoy the national day. Cruises offer a wide array of delicious things to indulge in. From canapés and treats to buffets and cocktails, they have got it all covered. Let the open bar set up in the boat with the bar tender take care of you and your guests, enjoying the day will be really easy as the infectious celebratory vibes are all around.

Since it’s a family-friendly day, why not bring your entire family including kids out for a fun time at the harbour?  Older people can enjoy it as well and they have special accommodations for people with disabilities. It’s fun for all ages. Nowadays, cruise boats have exclusive kids’ areas so you don’t have to worry about bored kids bothering you by asking “when can we go home?” over and over again. Although the sea and fireworks will keep them pretty much preoccupied all the time, there are fun activities and games available in the cruise as well. This will ensure that you have a relaxing time with other adults.

If you have never planned your national day out like this before, then look no further. Surprise your family and friends by booking an amazing and unforgettable journey across the Sydney Harbour. You will not regret it and who knows, you might even make it an annual family tradition.
