The 10 best things that happened to travel in 2015

As the end of 2015 is fast approaching, we’ve decided to take a little trip down memory lane and countdown our top 10 travel moments from the past year!

10.  Petcube

This little contraption lets pet lovers check in on their furballs while they’re away from home – perfect if you’re heading off on a city break and want to see how ‘Missy’ or ‘Rusty’ is getting on in the gaff without you (obviously in between the neighbors coming over to feed them etc).  It’s a remote wireless camera that you can connect to your phone – until dogs and cats figure out how to Skype, this is the next best thing!


9.  Booking a trip to Rio while under the influence

You know when you wake up after a heavy night on the sauce and realise that you somehow spent €60 on Dominos last night and there are three boxes of untouched pizza in the kitchen?  Yeah, well this guy did the same thing, except instead of Dominos, it was a trip to Rio…. (To be fair though, it worked out pretty well for him!)

Full story here..


8.  The ‘Uptown Funk’ Flight Attendant

Channeling Fleur East, this one…

7.  Wallet Ninja

We’ve all been there – you’re in a hotel room in god knows where and you’ve resorted to opening a bottle of wine with a wire hanger because you forgot to bring a wine opened….

We’ll the Wallet Ninja won’t open up wine bottles, but by the looks of it – it’ll do pretty much every other odd-job imaginable while you’re on the go – perfect if you’re backpacking around the World!


6.  Lip Sync-ing around the World

Safe to say these lads get around…(see what we did there?)

5.  Tom Sauce – NYC in a nutshell

This slicker-than your average NYC video caught our eye back in August.  Watch it and you can’t help but bop your head to the beat and start mentally planning your move to the Big Apple…

4.  The Crisp Sandwich

June 12th 2015 is a day that will live in infamy – when Aer Lingus announced that they will serve crisp sandwich packs (including soft white bread and Kerrygold butter *drool*) on international flights…pure genius.      tayto

3.  Snapchat

Ok, we know that Snapchat has been around much longer than a year, but I think you’ll agree that 2015 has been THE year for snaps – especially when it comes to keeping up with mates that are living abroad.  Can’t beat those snaps that you open in the office at 3pm from the lads in Oz streaking on a bar-crawl…especially when you’ve forgotten to turn the sound off on your phone and the whole room hears the chanting…

2.  Go-Pro gone wrong

A strong contender for the top spot – Vegas like you’ve never seen it before…

1. The weather report that gave us life

Now, you may be asking yourself what this has to do with travel right? Easy – ‘Don’t make unnecessary journeys’….

Wishing all of our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – see you in 2016!
