Pretty much every getaway, holiday, city break and adventure, we have at some stage used a vehicle on the road for travel purposes. I'm pretty sure most of us all know the rules of the road in our home countries and where we may reside...

We are very happy this year as the Tour de France is not only coming to Britain for the opening three stages of the 101st edition of the world's most demanding bike race, but it is also passing by locally for us too!  This Saturday...

Have you ever sat on a park bench and listened to a conversation in a foreign country wishing you knew how to communicate with them? If you have thought or attempted to learn a language whilst travelling then you'll be glad to know you're not...

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil has officially begun and is one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, with fans travelling from all corners of the globe. Whether you are a football fanatic or more relaxed unless there's a World Cup on (like...

Rainforests believe it or not, are fundamental to our planet's health. Pretty obvious right? Not only are rainforests home to more than half of the world's species of flora and fauna, rainforests are also the source of about 40 percent of the planet's oxygen supply! That's a fact that I didn't realise was so high. It's sad to know that despite humans being so diverse and "life-giving" we still continue to destroy these beautiful natural habitats through deforestation.

Now I'm not going to start lecturing you on how we should stop our every day lives and chain ourselves to trees to try save them (although that could be an idea!) BUT it's good to try spread some awareness about how extreme it's becoming. After all, we are all avid travellers who love the world and what it gives back to us.

Let us take you on a journey through some of the most extreme destinations in the world. See how much you really know about the world with these extreme facts! Do you know where the world's coldest place is? How about where the Sun never dips below the horizon, or the city that plays host to the tallest building in the world? Discover the world’s most extreme destinations in the infographic below. These extreme destinations around the world take things to the next level and beyond...

Following our post on how to poop in the woods, we thought we would share a topic which is a little more serious when camping, or out in the open - Hypothermia. Now as you are reading this you might be nice and snug in the warm, but when you adventure the outdoors you are set to experience all types of weather and should be prepared for the worst. (It's always going to rain isn't it? - Typical!) It's always colder in the mountains so no matter where you're headed on your next backpacking adventure or what time of year it is, bring these cold fact with you. You never know, a quick read over these may in fact save your life (IF they actually do, let us know, but in all seriousness please take care out there!) Remember hypothermia is deadly and unfortunately takes the lives of 600+ people a year so don't take symptoms lightly!

Following on from our post on how to choose and use a backpack, we wanted to continue with the theme and help keep you travel light. I'm not sure if it's the thought of traveling half way across the world that makes our natural instinct pack everything we can, but we've discovered a flowchart to keep you from a back-breaking journey! You'll find great tips to keep yourself from packing too heavy and unnecessary items that are available around the world.

Different people take different things when they travel. We've all seen the hippie walking through the airport with just a guitar and a journal or the businessman who has perfected the science of compacting his clothes into a small carry-on. But what does your luggage say about you? That you're a fun-loving risk taker? A checklist tourist? Or are you packing for the one-off chance that you'll meet someone and turn your vacation into an Eat Pray Love experience? We examine the spectrum of travellers by what they take along... At Round the World we go, both myself (Adam) and Kate have spotted every type listed below.. I'm not sure if that's an accomplishment or not, but I do love my medals! :D I think we all know at least one person whose luggage fits into the categories :)

Are you looking to learn a language? Dared yourself to learn one of the hardest languages? Or just maybe you've added learning something new onto your bucket list. Well this week we take a look at which languages are the easiest to learn (phew! :P ) and which ones are a little more taxing for the native English speaker! Having learnt both French and Spanish at school, I feel I should have kept it up as now I don't feel nowhere near as confident... So without further ado, what are the hardest languages to learn?

Are you new to travelling? Think yourself as an experienced nomad? No matter what kind of traveller you are, this list is perfect to find out just how much you have learnt from travelling across the world...

Thanks goes to Travelbag for putting this excellent guide together in such a fun way - we enjoyed the read and even learnt a few things! Who'd of thought which hand is best to pour wine with in Argentina ;)

Infographics are a great way to display information and we've found a great one to start off with... Sandymount Hotel presents an infographic look at the modern travel blogger. We'll look at their average age, most popular destinations, technology, income, use of online platforms and of course, their blogging. (that's us!)

Are you a travel blogger? Do you agree with the infographic? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
