Traveling is a great experience for all, but what you bring with you is always a tough choice to make. Here are the top five travel must haves for any discerning traveler!

Traveling with toiletries and liquids can be a hassle, especially if you need liquid carry on pieces and are limited to the 3 ounce rule. However, some very clever folks have created the dissolvable hand soap, body wash, and shampoo. These are great when you are traveling and in a pinch for some cleansing suds – but don’t want to risk bringing aboard tons of liquids either in your luggage or carry on. Each package (shampoo, body wash, and hand soap) contains 50 sheets. Shampoo requires 4 sheets for hair, but body wash can be used with as little as 1. You simply dissolve the paper in water and suds up! Ta-da!

French food is delectable, but it’s not always the healthiest food choice especially for those who are trying to cut down on calories and fat. It’s absolute sacrilege, on the other hand, to ignore these treats while you’re in the romance capital of the world. Here are simple tips to keep yourself from gaining inches while still enjoying what the city has to offer.

Choose the right type of bread

There is a bakery in almost every corner of France, and more than twenty bread types to choose from in each one of these bakeries. You might want to widen your choice from the usual baguette to something more scrumptious and healthier. Calorie-conscious bread eaters should go for a pain complet, or a whole wheat bread, or a rye bread which they call the pan de seigle.

The thought of travel might be exciting or scary for you. Perhaps you’re a veteran traveler, or maybe this is your first trip abroad. In any case, you’re wondering what to wear when flying.

If you’re not a business traveler and you’re on a long flight, opt for comfortable clothing. Loose jeans and a t-shirt or polo shirt, along with a zip-up sweater in case you get cold, will serve you well. For women, the same applies, but if you want to look fashionable, remember practicality too. You could opt for a knee-length skirt or dress, but make sure you pick one that you’re comfortable in.

For business travelers, you might not have to wear itchy suits or uncomfortable dresses. If possible, wear comfortable clothes on the plane and bring a change of clothes in your carryon bag. You can change in an airport bathroom and still look professional as you arrive at your destination.

Make sure the cruise will give you a new experience at a reasonable price.

If you’re looking for bitches (too bad 90% of them are ex males) that’s the place. Sex shopping is very well developed in Amsterdam, it’s behind the tulip industry tough. These beautifull flowers are always associated with Holland, but they’re origins are in the Middle Orient. A visit to the flower market it’s well worth it…after Red Light District. Then you can go and buy some good stuff from the cafeterias, marijuana I say. For clothes, best deals are at Zara, Bershka, Espirit, Diesel or H&M.

If you want your travel time to be a quiet and relaxing time for you, a chatty or worse an annoying seatmate is your worst travel nightmare. Here are some subtle, simple tricks if you want to be exempted from the small chit chats while in transit:

No eye contact
