Is Your type of luggage important? - While travelling









Ever since man has moved from place to place and took his belongings with him, some sort of luggage was used. It was used to keep all his belongings together and even kept it organized. Like everything, luggage has evolved.


The evolution of luggage:


From the beginning of time, Trunks was used and were often made of fine woods like oak, pine, or cedar.


Currently now luggages are made of a combination of materials including cloth and leather. 


We now have suitcases, tote bags, and backpacks. Which come with places for bottles of water and are laptop compatible.


We have luggage with wheels, luggage which can expand, luggage that is soft and able to be fit into tight spaces, and hard luggage that protects your belongings and will survive the very rough handling of baggage handlers.

Benefits of wheeled type luggage:


For many years people have been physically carrying their luggage. The evolution of luggage brought us luggage with wheels. Its a real joy for travelers to have luggage on wheels. 


The main reason wheeled luggage is preferred is because its use makes getting through the airports easier. The ease of mobility with wheeled luggage is another reason for its preferred use.


Wheeled luggage also reduces the strain on your back. 


Things to consider when looking at wheeled luggage:


The quality of the wheels, the type of frame and what material the bags are made of. Also, consider the durability of the luggage. 


Frequency of your traveling, if its occasional durability is not as much of a concern as it would be if you were a frequent traveler. Frequent travelers need luggage that will survive the rough handling it will get.


Luggage for kids also comes with wheels making them feel grown-up.

How to avoid Jet lag & Cabin Pressure when flying

 








As Flying is becoming more of a routine activity for millions of people around the world, many of them have found ways to somewhat remove the effects that flying can cause.


For a first time flyer, or someone that is new to flying, there are some effect that flying has on your body. Such As:


- Jet Lag & Cabin (Air) pressure. 


However, there are certain things you can do to ensure that your flight is as comfortable as possible.


What is jet lag? 








Jet lag is when you travel across different time zone at a quick pace especially when there is a big different from your normal day and night times. It technically can be called a temporary sleep disorder. The more time zones you cross, the more discomfort you might face.


You can minimize the effects of jet lag in several ways:


- Get a good nights’ sleep before your trip. 


- Try to take a flight that arrives at night, so you can go straight to bed. Preferably take a nice warm bath before bed to relax your body. 


- Try Sleeping during your flight. 


- Stay hydrated 


- Try Sleeping Pills 


How to deal with Cabin Air Pressure 








1) Changes in air pressure can temporarily block the Eustachian tube, causing your ears to ‘pop’ or to experience a sensation of fullness. To equalize the pressure that is been applied to your ear, swallow frequently, chewing gum as well as yawning can also be effective. 


If the above method still isn't working, try the use of the ‘valsalva maneuver’: 


- Pinch your nostrils shut, then breathe in a mouthful of air.


- Using only your cheek and throat muscles, force air into the back of your nose as if you were trying to blow your thumb and finger off your nostrils.


- Be very gentle and blow in short successive attempts. When you hear or feel a pop in your ears, you have succeeded. 


2) Babies are especially troubled by these pressure changes during descent. Having them feed from a bottle or suck on a pacifier will often provide relief.


3) Avoid flying if you have recently had abdominal, eye or oral surgery, including a root canal. The pressure changes that occur during climb and descent can result in discomfort. 


4) Air pressure changes and the duration of your flight can cause your feet to swell up. Try not to wear new or tight shoes while flying and try walking abit during a long haul flight. 


5) Airplanes is a mostly dry environment to start of with. Alcohol and coffee both have a drying effect on the body.


6) Sit towards the front of the aircraft, before the start of the aircraft wings and aircraft engines.


The more precautions that you take maybe the difference between a Good holiday or a bad one.

Zimbabwe is not only home to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites but also boasts a Natural Wonder of the World – the mighty Victoria Falls. 


The Zambezi River runs along Zimbabwe’s and Zambia’s border and flows over the spectacular Victoria Falls.


The best time to visit Zimbabwe is from November through to April, which brings about the rainy season. Peak season is from July to September due to prime wildlife viewing, great white river rafting and canoeing on the Zambezi River. 


Victoria falls








If you’re travelling to Victoria Falls in the rainy season be sure to pack rain boots and a rain coat


Victoria Falls is Zimbabwe’s main attraction and known locally as the ‘Smoke That Thunders’. There is no doubt why, when looking at this impressive phenomenon surrounded by lush rainforest and abundant wildlife, it has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. 


Gushing over a 1.6 kilometre-long cliff before plunging into the Batoka Gorge, the sheer volume and force of the water will take your breath away. Explore it from all angles during spine-tingling walks and expect to be blown away by the majestic power of it all.


Victoria Falls will be the starting point of your adventure. This amazing location will get the adrenaline rushing through your veins with bungee jumps or boat cruise along the Zambezi.

 

One of the most dramatic spots is the westernmost point known as Cataract View, where steps lead down to outlooks of Devil's Cataract, a dramatic view of the falls often accompanied by a rainbow like effect. 


Heading back eastwards takes you past multiples viewing points of the main falls, where you'll witness the drama with full 180 degree views.


Another track leads to the aptly named Danger Point, where a sheer, unfenced 100m drop-off will rattle your nerves. From there, you can follow a side track for a view of the Victoria Falls Bridge


There are many tour guide and tour operators that will be able to guide you, for an additional amount. Most times this method is perfered when you want to get the most out of this attraction. 


Also Victoria Falls has its own international airport. 


Rafting:


There is rafting activities all along this region but nothing compares to the might of the Zambezi river immediately downstream of Victoria Falls. 


Safari Activities:


Hwange National Park,One of the oldest national parks on the continent, and the largest in Zimbabwe at 14,650 square kilometres. 


The Main attraction of this park, are the park’s elephants, with an estimated of 40 000 tuskers roam the park. There is also possibility of a walking safari with an experienced guide. 


This park is accessible by road, and can be reached from Victoria Falls in about 1.5-2 hours


Zimbabwe has never needed your support more than it does today. It allows us to continue to serve our industry and contribute to the conservation for our wildlife whilst serving our local communities.
