November is nearly over and winter’s drawing in so the log-burner’s been ramped up to ward off the chilly evenings. There’s been no travel this month except a business trip to Tenerife and I’m there now as this post goes live. It’s not too sunny but it’s not raining either so I’m happy with that. Despite very little travel it’s been all go on the blog with a RIB ride on the Thames, a vintage tour of London and my very first attempt at paragliding! Here’s what’s been happening with the Travelbunny in November…
Looking for the perfect gift for the travel lover in your life? (Or maybe I should say, things I wouldn’t mind getting my mitts on myself!) I can’t believe how quickly 2015 has rushed by and soon the holiday season will be upon us so I’ve put together some travel-inspired gift ideas in a range of prices. Read on for some unique and quirky gift ideas that travel addicts will love – and who knows, there may be something here you’ll want to add to your own wish list. Oh, and there’s a giveaway too… (more…)
One of the first things I had to do when I started working in the travel industry was to learn my airport codes. You know, those three-letter IATA identifiers, LHR for London Heathrow, SFO for San Francisco – you get the idea. There are some really cool codes like HIP which belongs to Headingly Airport in Australia and BOO for Norway’s Bodo Airport – luckily I only needed to learn the mains codes because there’s hundreds of them ranging from Aberdeen to Zurich.

I don’t know about you but I’m a massive Instagram fan. I love taking photos on my mobile phone on the spur of the moment and as the whim takes me. It’s pretty instant and there’s no need to fiddle about with lenses or camera settings and my phone is always close by in my bag or pocket. I just click, share and I’ve captured a little moment in time.
But here’s the rub, as much as I love Instagraming and taking photos on my phone, that’s usually where they stay – I’ve just checked and there’s over 1,000 photos floating around in the depths of my smart phone’s memory and that’s without the ones on the cloud. So now I’m on a mission to free my photos from my phone. I’ve decided to collate all my best Instagrams and phone photos into a yearly photo book. That way I can look back year by year and go through all the special moments and travel highlights in one gorgeous book. It’s the perfect reminder of the year and so much better than some of those tacky trip souvenirs which get pushed to the back of the cupboard – and, yes, I’m guilty on that count too.
Say hello to Printastic, a new app that makes it really easy to add all your favourite phone and/or IG photos to your book, directly from your phone and Instagram feed. All you need to do is make sure you have the latest version of Printastic installed on your iPhone or iPad. Printastic makes it simple to create a bespoke book with up to 200 pages. You can adjust the page layouts with one to four photos per page, re-order them to get the best look and even add captions. I think it would make the perfect gift for someone and is spot on for my (not so) little project. The app is completely free to download from the App Store. It’s only currently available as an iOS but there’s an Android version in the pipeline.
