When I started out travelling I didn’t have a clue, I just booked and flight, packed my bags and went for it. Now after over 10 years of travelling, planning and making mistakes I’ve managed to collate some of the best travel resources I use for every trip! No more searching endlessly for answers, it’s all here!

What are travel resources? They are the services and products that make travel planning easier and more affordable. It includes everything from accommodation to help forums for answers to specific questions you can’t find anywhere else.

Each resource listed below is one that I regularly use and I believe you to find them useful also.



The crux of visiting every country in the world, these articles will save you a ton of time!

You don’t need to use Google Maps but it’s offline function is super useful when you are in a city you don’t know with no network.


Completely necessary to increase security when surfing the web, not to mention the ability to watch home television you would have since missed. Another huge benefit is the ability to use Facebook, Google, Whatsapp amongst many more in countries that have decided to outlaw them.
