We’ve all heard the word mindfulness and know that meditation is the latest buzz these days, but what does being mindful actually mean? Meditation isn’t just sitting in a dark room, crossing your legs, closing your eyes and humming for hours on end. Meditation is a form of mindfulness which helps us escape the present and enter a deeper mental state. It’s a state where we can block out background noise, turn down the chatter in our heads and just be still.
No longer is phuket that desolate island just filled with sandy beaches and street bars. Far from it! Phuket is now investing in its infrastructure and is becoming one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Here are three of our favourite Phuket upgrades that we’re currently loving.
Thailand is known for one very special animal, the elephant. Elephants are probably one of the most beloved animals of all time. Huge in stature, yet kind and caring in nature. Known to be man’s best friend. However sadly elephants in Thailand are often mistreated. They are commonly used for amusement in the circus, used as rides for the tourists or even worse, abused and killed for their ivory tusks. It’s up to us to help save the elephants and bring them back to their natural habitat. They can’t speak up, but we can speak up for them.

We all love the travelling lifestyle. Packing up, hopping on a plane, going into the unknown. Exploring, going on an adventure and expanding your reality. It’s fun and exciting for most of us, but it’s not always as glamorous as it seems. Travelling lots can take its toll, so we’ve put together out top 5 plane hacks which you can use for any flight to help ease the travelling process.
