    Quicker overall? Not so sure.

    To be honest I have never felt it that much of a big deal. Sure you got to travel smart, but just putting things in cupboards securely etc isn't that time consuming if you are organised. And would...
  17. Sticky: Poll: Avoid crowds if you can !

    Donna. This is the exact reason why we travel off peak season. I travel to get away from it all, not go with it ! I would rather have shorter days and chillier weather than little space. (I...
