All the stuff I use in my travels
At times when you need travel help…
Travel bloggers have the reputation of knowing everything travel but we really don’t! This page is dedicated to all the reliable travel resources who have been with me through hell and high water for as long as I am traveling. Below are a few selected brands and companies that I run to whenever I am in trouble. I have handpicked the best of the best so remember that I am not going to recommend you anything (or anyone) that I don’t trust (or use).
In here, you will find things like how to find cheap flights, accommodation booking, travel photography resources, and of course – everything I need to be able to run this blog.
Finding Cheap Flights
For long flights, I always use Qatar Airways’ business class flights: they are affordable for the service that this airline offers.[/us_iconbox]
Kiwi.com shows budget airline flights that not all booking platform does. RyanAir, Cebu Pacific, EasyJet, etc cheap flights – they’re all here![/us_iconbox]
If you live in Europe, this website is for you. Fly4free filters super cheap flights from Europe to any point in the world. (i.e. RT 300 eur)[/us_iconbox]
Sometimes, you just don’t feel like mingling in the hostel and that’s totally understandable! Rent a full apt/villa for cheap through Airbnb![/us_iconbox]
Own an entire home/apt for a week or more by exploring HouseSitting. All you have to do is take care of pets and accommodation is free![/us_iconbox]
Remember that immigration always asks where you are going to stay? Booking.com accepts reservations (without paying) w/ last min cancellations![/us_iconbox]
Hotels posted on TripAdvisor are usually cheap and the good thing about this is you can see real comments (and sometimes brutal) from people![/us_iconbox]
Backpacks, Luggages and everything nice
Basically, your website is like a data plan where the consumption depends on the number of people visiting your site on the monthly basis. Professional blogging always require a web host. For me, SiteGround is superb!
Wondering where I got my blog layout/theme? It’s from Theme Forest! This website offers a wide variety of choices of themes for professional blogs. Magazine, Responsive, Shop, etc – they have everything!
I am always on the road and with the type of job I do, I always need wifi. TEP Wireless is available in over 60 countries so I make sure that I bring it with me all the time. It is cheap, fast and super reliable in times of need!
As a business transacting everything online, Internet browsing safety is very important to me. I use a VPN called Tunnel Bear for secure browsing anywhere in the world! Blogger or not, you should get one.
Did you know that I didn’t study journalism? I started writing when I was 9 and from then on, I developed a habit that helped me improve the kind of writer I am today. As much as I am always on the laptop, you will see me often writing in a notebook! Surat Journals is one of my best travel buddies – small, sleek, hand-made with love by one of my very good friends. I am not recommending this just because the amazing Mr. Surat is a friend but I really find this useful in all my random and disorganised thoughts.

You need a travel insurance when you travel long-term! World Nomads is my best pick. It might be a little expensive than the others but what I love about this is it also covers my travel gadgets which I use for my Digital Nomad work.[/us_iconbox]
