You Don’t Need To Settle For a Life Without Sun

Now, it’ll come as no surprise that this blog is a pretty strong advocate on the life-affirming qualities of the sun. It’s warming, it gives us energy, allows us to explore long in the day, and that’s before we even mention the simple pleasures of sitting outside with a cold drink on a warm summer’s evening. Yes, all in all, the sun is pretty perfect. But only when you’re in it: when it’s far away, it’s like being on the outside of a party. If you think you could do with a greater dose of sunlight in your life, take our steps below and get back to being happy. Time Your Travel Well If you live in northern Europe, then your winters will be characterized by long, dark nights. It can feel like we go forever without the sun! In the summer, the sun does come, but oddly enough this is when most people decide to travel to somewhere with warmer climates. If you don’t have children – and thus don’t need to worry about …

Suitcase Essentials for a Sunshine Holiday

It’s October. The days are getting shorter. The temperature is dipping. You’re planning your escape with a holiday in the sun! Booking a warm holiday in the sun means we need to start digging for our summer clothes. Those garments we’ve stashed up in the loft. That are now gathering dust. And creases. As the holiday approaches, it’s time to rescue that bikini! It’s time to start packing. When it’s raining outside packing your flip-flops may seem a bit surreal. Write a list of suitcase essentials to avoid leaving anything behind. Trips to Tuscany packages, tours of Sydney, or a Safari adventure. Whatever your sun-seeking destination, be ready for anything! Swimwear When the sun is shining, most of us head to the nearest water source. Sea or swimming pool; both call our name when the weather is warm.

100 Days of Sunshine turns 6 Months Old!

Wow, it’s been half a year already? Seems like time just flew. Exactly 6 months ago I set up this blog on WordPress and my first post was published on the 15th of September. It’s been a wonderful journey so far and this blog has brought me nothing but happiness, but now I’m starting to think about monetization. About 4 months in, sometime in January, a friend of mine came to me and asked me to set up a fun Weekend Birthday Itinerary for her and her husband somewhere in Europe, which I would actually be paid for. This was my first gig offer, and I remember how excited I was about it. I think that any person that finds themselves in a field they feel so passionate about would at first feel slightly awkward and surprised to be paid for something they madly love to do. When I first started researching Travel Blogging last year, I noticed thatsuccessful travel bloggers suggested attending Travel Blogging Events. This was in the very early stage, because I started looking at …
