PM2AM Trip – Baltic Sea cruise stop 4: Tallinn

On March/April 2018 we joined a cruise journey organized by PM2AM student trips, an organisation that arranges different trips for young adults (until the age of 35). The cruise we went on is epic. The route started in Stockholm and took us further by cruise ship towards Helsinki, Saint Petersburg and Tallinn over the span of 4 nights. A new country every time you wake up! In this series of four blogs I will tell you how we experienced each city. The fourth and final stop: Tallinn, Estonia!

A teaser of the sights we saw during our trip will surely persuade you to read on, will it not ;-)?

How Apps Can Help You Plan A Trip

We believe that trip planning is the most important aspect of a trip plan, and it’s fun too. Going through various destinations, checking flight timings, reading train timetables and comparing car rental prices, searching for bargained hotel prices, deciding where to shop and eat; this all this seems very exciting, isn’t it? Now whether you are planning a business trip or a family holiday, you need to plan your itinerary in such a way that you have plenty of time to do everything you want, and not miss out on anything.

With today’s technological boom, it’s easy to plan your trip sitting on your couch with a phone in your hand. Let’s look at them one by one:

TripIt:  A great app that helps you combine all your travel bookings and confirmations at one place. It will send you timely reminder about the flight you are going take and what time will your car rental service arrive. The only drawback on this app is that it won’t suggest your various travel destinations, or help you search hotels.

Guides by Lonely Planet: Now what this app does is that it will help you create your travel wishlist. Now this may include travel destinations like Paris Disneyland with the family, or going on a Solo trip to Bali; or travel experiences like bungee jumping off the Bloukrans Bridge. Again, as you can see, this app will not help you make the booking for that particular trip. TripCase is another such app that helps you arrange all your flight, train, hotel, car rental confirmation in one place. One more example in this list is the quintessential, TripAdvisor.  

TripAdvisor: TripAdvisor will help you plan your trip from start to the end, compare reviews and help you arrive at a right decision. The only drawback of this app is that it will not centralize your travel documentation.

TripHobo: It  is a unique trip planning tool that will let you choose your travel destination, make wishlists and compare hotels, while also letting you book tours and experiences. The two most striking features we found in this trip planning app are group planning and budget calculator. Group planning helps you invite your travel buddies to share ideas, chat and custom-create your travel itinerary, which is then made available on everyone’s dashboard for a ready reference; while the budget calculator gives you a unified budget by taking into consideration your flight, hotel, sightseeing costs, plus lets you add expected costs for food, shopping, tips, and other miscellaneous items. This itinerary planner will also suggest you readymade trip plans that have been created by millions of travellers from all around the world.

 

Costa Rica: Experiencing the Pura Vida lifestyle

Hola Travelers,

Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The country has everything anyone ever dreamed about. No wonder the slogan of the country is Pura Vida, meaning no matter what your current situation is, life for someone else can always be less fortunate than your own. Pure Life if you translate it literally. Great way to think about life isn’t it? In this blog I will show you that the environment the Costa Ricans live in helps enjoying life more! These are some of the top places to visit when in Costa Rica. I personally picked out 4 for you guys to get inspired!

1. Puerto Jimenez

Puerto Jimenez is a Peninsula in Costa Rica and borders the Corcovado National Park. This place is a must visit. Easiest access is with a boat. There are a few very good hostels where you can stay. Make sure you are prepared for the humidity, it is in the middle of the jungle after all!

All your travel experiences in one overlook? Decorate your home!

There are plenty of ways to decorate your home to remember all those beautiful travel experiences. We did it as followed:

An IKEA world map sticker, some red threads, pins and pictures from Instagram is all you need! 🙂

Tip #5: Be open for new experiences

Being open for new experiences will mean that you will experience new things quicker.

Respect local habits, religion and learn about the past, present and future of the country you are in. Be open to try new food, from trying Springbok or Crocodile in Africa to bugs in Asia! Maybe you like it, maybe you do not. Atleast you know after you tried!

Try different things. Instead of always chilling at the beach, take a hike up the mountains! Experience a different side the country you visit has to offer, and come back with great stories to tell to your family and friends!

Tip #4: Photo’s, photo’s and movies

Tip #4: Photo’s, photo’s and movies

You see a lot when you are travelling. Interesting streets, nature, wildlife, buildings and people. Of course you want to look back somehow to relive your trip, photo’s and movies are the answer to that.

And, take a lot of them! Even if you are a perfectionist, it is better to take 30 pictures of a sighting and pick out the perfect shot, instead of just taking one which you might not like after all.

Also, movies are great. I myself use a GoPro Hero 4 Silver edition, everything you record and you do not like you can edit out anyways!

Keep on recording y’all!

Tip #3: Staying with locals

Howdy travellers,

Another week, another tip!

Tip #3: Want to experience your trip to the fullest? Use the knowledge of the local population!

Meeting locals is one of my favorite things to do when abroad. There are a lot of people who love to give you some insight information about their culture and habits. Just go out and meet the locals!

There are a lot of apps on your smartphone to connect, like Tinder or Badoo (beware of people with other intentions though). But if you also want to save some money on ho(s)tels and not only meet but also stay with a local, I can highly recommend finding an host through Couchsurfing. A lot of like minded people host travellers and like to show you around and also hear your stories! Don’t forget to bring a small gift for the host 😉 (a cool alcohol bottle is always a great gift!).
