We all know that celebrities are vacationing a lot better than us normal folk. They are always out at some obscure island, that you have probably never heard of.
Italy has one island that you might have heard of as a child: the island of Monte Cristo. The exclusivity of this island is so intense, that you know people are vying to get a peak at this Italian island.
The island of Monte Cristo only has four people leaving on it, and there are only two times a year that people are allowed to visit the island. Unless you have granted access to visit the island, transit is not allowed within one kilometer of the shore.
Only 1000 visitors are allowed access after filling out an application. Typically those granted access are scientific teams and people on school field trips. The window for one of the visits is opening from August 31st to October 31st.
However, even if you have filled out an application to visit this exclusive island, you might have to wait years for a response. The reason for the exclusivity is to preserve the islands untouched environment.
Environmentalists want to preserve the island, which is why there is no transit allowed on or near the island. So if it’s worth the wait, sign up to visit the island today… because it might be a while.
Jet Lag Explained
Bella Breakdown If you are an avid traveler, or if you’ve only traveled a handful of times across a time zone, than you are probably aware of the term, ‘jet lag’. You have just gotten off of a 5+ hour flight and find yourself in a time zone that is anywhere from 3 to 12 (maybe even more) hours. You feel sluggish, maybe even a little loopy because your entire daily schedule is completely different now. You might find you’re sleeping in later, or waking up earlier because of your ‘circadian rhythm’ is completely off. Your ‘circadian rhythm’ is essentially the timing your body is used to on a daily basis. Have you ever noticed you wake up at the same time every day, regardless of if you have your alarm set? Yup thats the rhythm. So when you travel into different time zones, there is an adjustment period...

Bella Breakdown The Millennial generation definitely has the travel bug and it just will not quit! Therefore, they seem to be quitting their jobs instead. Now, I’m not sure if traveling is for the sake of looking a certain way on social media, or if we as a generation refuse to be stuck the confines of a 9 to 5, but either way we tend to opt for equal parts work and life. Millennials are ditching the idea that we have to work until we die. Sure, we know we need to work, but in the meantime we’d like to live until we die as well. A lot of Millennials are leaving six-figure jobs for a more flexible schedule...
Bella Breakdown I don’t know about you, but I tend to be an awful packer whenever I have to travel anywhere. If I leave for 3 days, I’m packing for almost two weeks. If I have to go somewhere for a month, I seem to never have enough! Everytime I have to pack or re-pack I end up jamming stuff into my suitcase until it’s bursting at the seams. Also, why do I never pack enough underwear? When I’m packing to go somewhere, I don’t even consider purchases I’ll be making while on the trip. Clearly, my brain space much like my suitcase, is all taken up. Now, I know I can’t be the only one who does the...
Bella Breakdown I’m not sure which part about traveling with a baby I dread the most. Is it the part where I have to deal with a child who may or may not end up screaming, whilst in a flying tube for hours? Or is it the part where I have to give apologetic glances to the other passengers? Passengers whose own glances are either that of annoyance or pity. Hmmm.. what to decide? It sort of all sounds miserable. Stop the dreading though, parents! There are ways to stave off the impending misery that is traveling with a young child. Here are a few ways to make sure traveling with your little one is as painless as possible:...
Bella Breakdown Many people are making it a point to travel, even when they’re on a tight budget. They harbor tricks of the trade to stretch their dollar as much as possible while they explore what the world has to offer. We can’t help but wonder, “how!?”. There are a number of ways to travel while you’re living on a limited income. The best way is to save, don’t spend. What I mean by this is to allow yourself some time to save up some of your hard earned money to put towards your trip. While at all costs, avoid maxing out your credit card and spending money that you don’t have. If you do feel comfortable using a...
Bella Breakdown What is there not to love about Scotland? Rolling hills of green, rich history, fantastic people, golf! And the kicker? The invention of the Golden Retriever! Scotland recently celebrated the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Golden Retriever at the breed’s ancestral home in the Highlands. The Scots partied in style, holding the Guisachan Gathering, a four day festival dedicated to over 300 Golden Retrievers and their owners. The Golden Retriever fest featured activities such as informational lectures, games and picnics, afternoon tea, and even a gala dinner! The video of these happy pups frolicking in fields of green is enough to make you hope that Scotland decides to host a 151st anniversary, solely so you...
Bella Breakdown I was recently talking to a friend about helpful baby travel gear. She made me list of three or four essentials. After looking at the products, I realized they were lightweight no frills versions of items I already have. Those of you with kids will understand, regardless of how many or few baby items you have at home, there is never enough room for everything. It made me think: why couldn’t I use travel friendly baby gear in my everyday life. This is my list of travel friendly baby gear for everyday use: Any Breathable Baby Carrier: There are a ton on the market, many have breathable mesh or lightweight options.
