  1. Great tips! It can be so hard to stay active while travelling, so it’s always nice to hear how other people manage to do so. I also try to do some yoga wherever I am, because I can do it anywhere as long as I memorise a few stretches and short sequences!

    1. Thanks Emma! Yoga and stretching is a great addition. It doesn’t take much to stay in shape, just 15minutes of heart pumping exercise per day. Check out my website for more

      1. Every time we travel and can’t afford a local gym membership, we always always always make sure to take the stairs (yes, even with the huge backpacks), do bicep lifts with our bags, grab a drink of water every time we pass a drinking fountain. and wake up early to get a nice run in!

    1. It is a challenge to stay in shape on the road, try implementing these tips. Just a little bit everyday will help you enjoy your treats and stay in shape

  2. Nice tips! It’s so easy to neglect your health on vacation, but these are tips are easy to follow. Another good tip would be to keep hydrated by drinking lots of water, instead of drinking sugary beverages since these have a lot of empty calories.

  3. Oh man…traveling is really the only thing that makes me pack on the pounds, even though we try to stay active while on vacation. Unfortunately, the more I travel, the more I gain 🙂 I’m currently working on getting rid of the 20 pounds I’ve gained over our last 3 trips this year. If only I could say “no” to all of the great food. Thanks for the tips!

  4. Thanks Rebekah for these great work out tips! Swimming is also great work out, if you are traveling in a place with warm climate. I try to go for an hour swim a couple of times a week, either in the sea or swimming pool. We are now traveling in Asia, so the temperature in the sea is not so bad :). Will definitely check out your YouTube channel!

    1. Hey Maria, great job with the swimming.

  5. This blog is very timely for me! Shortly setting off on a backpacking trip around central america and keen to stay as active as possible on the road! GREAT idea re the skipping rope! I’ll certainly be adding one to my packing list now! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. I lived in Melbourne for 3 months and using the public transport everyday can add up to be quite expensive so I walked everywhere. It was 5k to where I worked so I’d get te tram there and walk back along the beach. I saved money and kept quite fit.

    Parkruns are popping up all over the world now, especially Australia. It’s a free 5k run every Saturday morning around a local park. We try and do one everywhere we go. So far we have done the one in Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin and doing on in adelaide on Saturday!

    Great blog!!!
