Safe Travel Destinations:
When you are unsure about the safety of travelling to a country you can contact or visit the website of the Australian Department of Foreigh Affairs and Trade (DFAT).  On the website they maintain travel advisories for more than 160 destinations providing accurate, up-to-date information about the risks you might face overseas.

Tip:
Whilst travelling overseas make sure you know where your Country Embassy is.  Keep yourself informed about current world issues and keep in contact with family and friends - provide them with your current travel plans.  In today's WWW world there are Internet Cafes almost everywhere so keeping in contact with your family and keeping up to date on world happenings is much easier.
Comfortable Flying:
Nowadays 'Flying' is almost an everyday experience for a large majority of people - either across the country or across the world.  Unfortunately due to demand the world's airlines look to maximise numbers on a plane and this means that much of the seating space is on the cramped side - leading to discomfort, especially on long flights.
Here we have gathered some links together for you with suggestions that might make your next trip a little more comfortable.
Travel Fitness:
Again due to the large amount of people flying on a regular basis, as well as comfortable flying 'travel fitness' has become an important factor...
Regular exercise & eating correctly can help reduce stress on those long trips.
