Star Wars Filming Locations we Love and Some More we Would Love to See!

May the 4th be we us travellers wherever we choose to go! With the international Star Wars day approaching us in light speed, we found the need to devote an article to some of the most influential movies ever, which also happen to be amongst our favourites. With the first episode of the series launched in 1977 and setting new highs for film production, George Lucas created a legend. From the futuristic editing and special effects to the detailed costumes and deep characters, Star Wars is indeed a series worth of being classified as a cultural treasure. What’s more however is that the different planets where everything takes place, as diverse as they might be, still are part of our planet. Most of them are open for visiting, whereas others would be avoided by most. Nonetheless, here we have some of the places where the movies were filmed and some places which could also be used and happen to be near well-known tourist destinations.

5 tips for safe Fun under the Sun

tan tips

As we all know, summer vacations bring happiness, fun and some summer days with that hard to get ‘away from it all’ feeling. Picture yourself on a sunbed by the perfect beach, sunglasses on, cocktail in hand and gazing down the endless blue. Sounds perfect. However, the perfect vacation is not perfectly worry-free. Besides the usual worries of not knowing the place and the language or not knowing where to have drinks and dinner without getting ripped off, one worry remains mostly unseen. Suntan may come at a certain expense such as burns and irritation but the main concern is the conditions which may be worse. Unfortunately, melanoma is a real threat and bearing in mind its potentially dangerous and detrimental effect on health, we considered important to devote an article on how to tan safely, without returning from say a holiday to Spain with worse than just cheap souvenirs.

A Purple farewell to Prince

purple-farewell

It’s been a few hours since another legend passed away, adding to the people who left us in 2016 after leaving their mark. Prince for us was always an idol. A charismatic musician who managed to captivate our minds, souls, eyes and ears through his work. In order to honour him and his music which inspired us more than ten years ago, we decided to name our company Purple Travel partly because of his song Purple Rain. Lots of dreams, fun times, bad times and anything in between could be dressed with Prince’s songs as a soundtrack and still be way exciting.
