WHETHER YOU’RE A PISTACHIO, TIRAMISU OR JUST A CLASSIC VANILLA KIND OF PERSON…

All gelato is good gelato when eaten in Italy. Ever wondered what the difference is between gelato and ice cream? It all comes down to creaminess. Italian gelato in fact contains less fat than ice dream, and is a softer, creamier texture than traditional ice cream, plus the flavours are seriously on point. Whether you’re in Rome, Venice, Florence or elsewhere in Italy, no day is complete without at least two gelato encounters.

SHOULD I TAKE A SUITCASE OR BACKPACK?

Again, this is all dependent on where you’re travelling to. For trips to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, a backpack will be your best bet. Oversized suitcases or metal framed backpacks are a no-go due to luggage limitations, but you can bring a smaller bag to pack for the Galapagos, leaving your main suitcase at the hotel in Guayaquil to collect on return.

On our Australia trips which include sailing and/or 4-wheel drive trips, there is a super small luggage space so again, make sure you bring along a small bag to transfer your essentials into. Your regular luggage will be stored back at base.

On European ski trips and New Zealand trips with a ski option you have the option to bring one pair of skis and ski boots, to show off your pro skiing skills.

Other than what's mentioned above, travelling with a backpack or suitcase is totally up to you. Weigh up the pros and cons of each here.
