Was the golden age of travel the 60’s era when cigarettes were allowed on planes, suits and ties were standard gear for long haul flights and tickets cost multiple weeks of salary? Or…

Is the golden age of travel right now – a time when you can fly half way around the world for under £300 on amazing airlines, and wear sweatpants when you do?

The Crazy Flight Deals

San Francisco is paradise for foodies, wine lovers, photographers and anyone who just loves the California lifestyle. It’s a city rich in history with fascinating districts for miles.
