It's 2019 and you have a very long travel bucket list and on the top might be Iceland and if you're a millennial it's so hard to escape all the Iceland photos it's this beautiful natural landscape you see pictures of the Blue Lagoon and all these waterfalls and you're itching to go hey guys it's your girl Allie welcome back to my channel in this video I'm sharing with you six different travel life hacks how to save money while traveling to Iceland the best time of year to go what to wear and so much more you get to come along with me so if you're new to my channel be sure to subscribe this month I'm giving away a Polaroid camera just like this so without further ado let's hop into this travel guy go Travel hack number one so if you're thinking about going to Iceland and you're wondering what's the best time of year to go I like during the low season which is between October – I think December time and during my time tickets are the cheapest I flew without air which is a budget airline and what that means is they don't have a TV they don't offer included meals or check bags these are all things that you kind of have to add on our tickets for only $400 with one carry-on which is quite affordable because tickets can go anywhere between the 600 $700 range honestly we did miss out too much on the meal or any of those luxury comforts that you would get with a regular airline October through December is the best time to save money when you're thinking of flying to Iceland what to wear to Iceland okay depending on the time of year that you go it could be either spring or winter time it can very much very I would recommend wearing your heaviest items with you to the airport for instance like a waterproof jacket or your snow pants or all of those different heavier layers and you can't pack onto your carry-on wear that out of the airplane I was actually able to pack 11 days of clothes and one carry-on I packed in one down coat one waterproof raincoats a couple sweaters waterproof pants some thick winter snow pants because when I went it was wintertime waterproof boots gloves because you don't want your fingers to freeze off a scarf a beanie with a pom-pom because you're going to be taking a tie photos and those are pretty much all of the highlights that I would recommend if you want a full detailed packing list I'll have my blog linked for you guys down below fashion by Ali calm next up I want to talk about the food and Iceland food is so incredibly expensive just because it's an island expect to pay two to three times more than you usually pay for food the best travel have to save money in Iceland is to try your best to buy food from a grocery store or to cook all of your food so if you're on the road like I was and doing a lot of road trips I dependent on sandwiches I bought a lot of grocery store sandwiches that were anywhere between seven to nine dollars but that can easily add up especially three meals a day and try your best to not eat out as often but it's really hard when you're travelling right you do want to enjoy the food because it is incredible things are not preserved I had a lot of fresh fish vegetables oh just amazing definitely something you don't want to miss out on bring your own coffee and tea to try to save money because coffee was anywhere between four to eight dollars four dollars at a grocery store which is insane but is so expensive that can easily just rack up to a hundred dollar coffee bill do your research before you go there especially for hotels so I relied on hotels comm to find all of the places I stay if you booked over ten nights you get one night for free another affordable option is Airbnb this can only work for big major cities like reco Vic or Vic but anywhere else in the countryside you pretty much have to use Hotel calm or TripAdvisor it's just the way it is because there aren't as many homes out there most of the hotels in the countryside of iceland is more like a farmhouse so you do get this authentic experience if you're staying in a chain hotel I would recommend skipping the breakfast option because at one hotel we've paid over twenty dollars per person you can easily purchase food from the grocery store and save that money for a nicer bigger dinner or lunch travel hack number five I'm going to share with you my favorite activities while I was in Iceland so I wrote them down even made a full blog post on it you've probably seen pictures of people in Iceland in the Blue Lagoon and there's milky blue water and you're dying to go there and look so relaxing and luxurious it's super touristy if you have the chance I would definitely recommend driving up to my patent which is further up north and it is a little bit cheaper you get the similar experience and a view beautiful it's the less touristy sister of the Blue Lagoon this beautiful mountain view the water is so warm and it's so cool when it's wintertime because it's freezing and then you jump into this hot water it might smell a little bit like sulfur which isn't too bad and I would recommend if you have colored hair like mine to tie it up do not let your hair touch the water because it will dry it out become a frizzy crispy mess which you do not want my second favorite tivity was look like sure to look good over there there's like ice on the beach and we were able to see it when the Sun was setting it was beautiful I will insert some photos here and you could just see the sunset glistening off the water although it is a little bit sad that the reason why there are these glacier chunks is because of global warming it's still a really beautiful piece of nature of course your camera gear DSLR your phone your tripod because girl you might see the Northern Lights and you don't want to miss it you need a tripod for zyv you have to escape the light polluted city you can't be in an area with a lot of lights around you so I was able to see the Northern Lights when I was at a farm in my baton I'm going to list right here specifically the specs on your camera and how to set it up to capture the Northern Lights last but not least it might be kind of obvious but dress warmly because you're going to be shooting outside you're going to meet gloves and coat just so you can stay outside longer when I think of Iceland I think of waterfalls black sand beaches blue lagoon waterfalls are abundant okay so you might go to one with tons of tour buses don't worry there's going to be so much more if you end up doing the drive around the island like I did it's Marta Fox was beautiful just because it was just fall season so all the leaves and trees are changing color I just love seeing the seasons change so I really love the warm orange e tones and the leaves my next highlight had to bend the eastern fjords the fjords are finger like islands that kind of jut out a bit into the water so what's really cool if you do a road trip is you can type around the edges and you get this crazy like 360 view of the landscape and everything just feels so natural serene and quiet just decide to stop here on the side of the road it's not some quick photos so beautiful here it's cold I know it is cold but what's awesome about this spot is you get a little bit of the snowy mountains ocean just a bunch of these like mossy Mountain one of my favorite things about Iceland is the fact that there are natural hot springs just almost eye of the road the water is piped in here it's super hot very fresh and you can hop in with your swimsuit and have a good time and we literally parked right here I'm glad you made it to the end of this video thank you so much for watching if you want a full list of where I went while I was in Iceland be sure to check out my blog fashion by Ali calm I'll include a google map of all the places I went to you pin so you can just plug it into your phone and then you can go there yourself be sure to follow me on instagram at

Isn't it the worst when you forget to pack something and you desperately [need] it Well, here's a list of things that most people commonly forget [in] [today's] video I'm going to share with you a ton of different travel hacks waiting to save money on hotels and stays how to make your travel experience a lot more comfortable Packing tips and so much more tomorrow I'm flying out to New York [I'm] really excited because I haven't been back to New York since I was a little girl let's try to get this video to  thumbs up I know we could do it because we totally did it last time and if you're new to my channel please subscribe Like the button down below and the belt icon so without further ado let's jump into this video Okay, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I'm kind of obsessed with coffee and tea That's like a majority of where my money goes So a travel [asking] you to try is [to] pack your own teabags or even instead coffee anybody else like tea So when you go to your barista ask for a cup of hot [water] put in your own tea bag or your own into coffee And that way you just scored free coffee on the go So the next travel hack is all about shoes a lot of fashion Bloggers will wear flat shoes Until they get to their photo shoot location and just swap it out for whatever Heels that they want to wear for the photo [I] like to do when I'm traveling is to bring along these insole cushions. You could buy them at any drugstore Like Walgreens CVS They're really cheap All you do is just slip them into your shoes little gel ones that you place on the balls of your feet These ones are super lightweight. Don't take up too [much] room, but are really really comfortable, too. I? Actually didn't know that you could bring your own food onto an airplane Nobody likes being hungry at the airport so I like to pack myself a little snack [so] I just like having some platform with me It's just a nice little treat for myself in case I get a little bit hungry on my flight Back to my own snack it really helps me save money and also keeps you from being angry during my flight [Jover] Isn't it the worst when you forget to pack something and you desperately [need] it Well, here's a list of things that most people commonly forget for some reason. I always seem to forget to Pack my phone charger [my] phone is constantly Dying so it's really important for me to pack an external charger this one gets my phone about three extra charges I just always rely on my friends or my boyfriend to bring it. Maybe you're taking a lot of photos or snapchat pictures It's so so important to have my phone charged all the time because that can be the worst if your phone dies Hacking my clothes I just forget to bring my underwear along with me buy underwear on the go is probably one of the most annoying things to do Because it's something that you just can't go without unless you want to go commando girl that you do you owe? That time of the month [you] don't want to risk getting your period on the go and not having your favorite pads and tampons place It into my travel bag and make sure I don't forget Because I never want to risk getting my period on the go and not having my favorite products with me if you want more parent Hacks and tips you can click over [here] to see another video that. I made that you guys seem to really like Whenever I travel my skin feels, so dry I always forget [to] pack a lotion and lip balm, so I just have a spare one [in] my emergency bag This is a great travel size from H2O And I also love having this lip balm plus the size of it is perfect to throw into my emergency bag yes, we all have dirty clothes when we're traveling if you're going to the beach and your clothes get [wet] somehow just gets kind of smelly and gross so I like to bring a tote bag [that] can double as a shopping bag you want a way to Store your clothes without touching your clean hose look who we have here I'm Gonna Do you know what this is this is? So this is [a] hair tie to pack a couple of them. Just put them in your emergency pack and one thing I always seem [to] forget to bring is a reusable water bottle so if the country you're traveling to has water that's safe to drink be sure to pack something like this, so you can stay hydrated on the go a lot of Airlines offer Frequent flyer programs which are totally free [I] used to think that a frequent flyer program was like a credit card but it's totally completely different if you fly with a airline pretty frequently you get to rack up points and those points can be converted to different parts perks like Just counts off of flight tickets. I can maybe get bumped up on seating get a free check bag There's so many different benefits and signing up is totally free Nobody likes lost luggage [it] really sucks. If it's ever happened to you. I am so sorry put your Identification on the outside nametag and also inside so I like to put in my [name] my address and phone [number] that someone can contact me The next travel Hack will save you time at the airport So you should definitely sign up for TSA precheck if you've never heard of TSA precheck It's just a really simple process that you do so you [can] skip the security lines. So you sign up [and] you pay? $85 and it's a five-year membership all you do is go to the airport beforehand like days before your trip and you just bring your Passport or ID and then you just do like a really simple one our screening? And that's pretty much it it is you at the airport um? Sorry, sir let me just try to find my plane ticket. I know it's in here Let me [just] scroll back through like 200 selfies A really smart travel hack to do is to take a screenshot of your plane ticket the minute you get it so you don't forget and Then add it to your favorites that way when you're at the airport It's really easy for you to pull it up from your favorites folder The worst thing that can happen when you're traveling is to lose something or to have something stolen I like to use something called tile [tile] It's just like a small piece of plastic [that's] connected to an app on your phone So you can track things that you lose for instance Keys wallet phone [or] even like luggage Or purse as you can see the tile is really thin it's very compact and almost the size of a quarter Here's my phone, and then I'll go to the tile app and I can click find It makes a cute song play One thing that I can't live without is my wallet if that's stolen, or if it's lost [I] pretty much don't have any money or any identification when I'm on the go You're a made it to york just check it. Oh my gosh You app I've been trying is [hoteltonight] if you're a last-minute traveler like I am I know I'm such a procrastinator So when you book for a hotel you can check with the app and they usually tell you the lowest Prices for really quality hotels [if] you want to use hotel tonight And use my discount code it will be linked down below in the description box or I'll have it. Just floating around here Hey guys, what's up? So currently I just checked into my airBnb in New York City It was way [cheaper] to rent from an AirBnb than to check into a hotel Hotels were about like 200 250 per night Whereas the AirBnb was about 150 So it's such a great deal plus. We have this whole entire space This next travel hack has to do with dangly Jewelry if you've already heard of this hack then it's probably because it is really really [awesome] and really good Which is why I wanted to mention it again So the best way to pack jewelry is to actually use Saran wrap take your Saran wrap and just lay it down and place on top the necklaces That you want to pack and just fold it over a couple times, so it lays [flat] So by using Saran wrap it really just saves me a lot of time and effort and struggle in untangling necklaces.Yay So we made it to the end of this video I hope you learned something new be sure [to] leave a comment down below and share with us some of your favorite travel tips and hacks I'd love to know and love to learn something new so be sure to follow me and Bella on Snapchat Instagram My username is @FashionbyAlly.
