Five travel photography essentials that won't weigh you down - Lonely Planet

Read Five travel photography essentials that won't weigh you down by Lonely Planet
RJ Tan's insight:

We commit things to memory better when we give singular focus to the thing we want to remember. Taking out our phone or camera and trying to take a picture fractures that focus, and makes it more difficult for our brains to cement the memory. Don’t do it for vacation. Don’t do it for luxury. Don’t do it to take pictures for your Instagram account. Do it for the wonderful memories the pictures will bring.

Let nature's greatest light show cap the perfect end to a warm summer day.
RJ Tan's insight:

There’s nothing better in this world than a beautiful sunset. The hues of red, pink, orange and purple that illuminate the sky as the sun starts its descent and starts to fall down below the horizon. It is a moment to sit and stare, to contemplate the world and hold the person you love a little closer. Wherever you are, a great sunset will make the world look beautiful, even if it is just for a short half an hour.

RJ Tan's insight:

Mark Twain once wrote, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  Each time you go on an adventure, you find yourself changing. Adventures build your confidence; and with each successive one, you challenge yourself just a little bit more.

Top 10 European Train Trips - Travel - National Geographic

Top 10 European Train Trips from National Geographic
RJ Tan's insight:

There's something refreshingly traditional about taking a train, particularly if you're traveling over a long, multi-night route. The days of silverware and fine china in coach class may be long gone in the airline industry, but on overnight trains you'll still find dining cars with full-service meals and uniformed wait staff.  When you travel by car or plane, it's easy to miss the countryside or true essence of a region; when you travel by train you can get to your destination in a hassle-free and relaxing way while having a view during your trip.

How to Pack for 10 Days in a Carry-On

How to Pack for 10 Days in a Carry-On | Travelling | Scoop.it
A ten-day trip to India with everything you need in one carry-on bag? Yes, it’s possible. Here’s how to do it.
RJ Tan's insight:

No matter how far you are traveling, and how long you are going for, a lighter suitcase translates to easier mobility. Dodging other travellers in the terminal can be done with greater manoeuvrability when you’re only carrying a backpack or a small, wheeled carry-on. And forget the airport, this stuff needs to get to the airport, from the airport to your accommodations, back to the airport, and back home. Packing lighter saves you all kinds of hassles.
