Today’s blog comes from Jules Sanderson who worked in Hawaii for a summer with Work America
If someone had told me a few years ago I would spend a summer living and working on a Hawaiian Island I would never have believed them. But this year that’s exactly what I did! After finding my job as a receptionist on the island of Oahu (with a lot of emails and a Skype interview) I booked my tickets to The Aloha State.
On the plane over I remember mumbling the place names to myself, trying to work out how to pronounce them and worrying I’d never get them right. Three months later they flew off my tongue like I was Kama’āina (a local)!
As the cold draws in it’s time to shut the curtains, curl up under the blankets and get hot. We’ve searched the whole world (figuratively) to round up some of the best winter warmers from across the globe. So grab a mug and let it snow (drizzle, fog, whatever).
Today’s blog comes from Ryan and Lucy Williams who booked with STA Travel last year and had one epic adventure!
Travelling as a couple is a totally different beast compared with going it alone or heading out with a group of friends. Knowing how to tame that beast is the key to coexisting and thriving on an adventure with your other half.
We took an eight month journey from Rio to Malaysia, a trial by (exceedingly hot) fire, and at the beginning we honestly had no idea what ‘real’ travelling actually meant! Sure, we had been on holiday together lots over the course of the years and this was just a really long holiday…right?
Here at STA Travel we do multi-stop flights better than anyone else with exclusive flexible tickets, innovative routes, the freedom to travel overland and prices you can’t find anywhere else (hence the “exclusive” part).
As part of our series on incredible multi-stops we’re exploring a brilliant route from our mates at Qantas which packs in 5 continents (sorry Africa – next one’s all yours!) and a whole host of over-landing opportunities: it’s time to meet your multi-stop.
Ah, Los Angeles. City of angels, sizzling sunshine and that oh so famous Hollywood glitz ‘n’ glamour. What’s not to love? My lifelong dream to explore and experience what I consider the greatest city in the world was finally realised when I got the opportunity to travel there for two glorious weeks with my best friend in the summer of ’13.
Don’t just take my word for it though, let’s take a look at what makes LA one of the greatest cities in the world…
