Last week, I wrote about how much I like to use packing cubes to organise the stuff in my bag and make packing a lot easier and more efficient. In addition to those packing organisers you also need a great bag to pack. And my favorite backpack (ever) is the Topo Designs Klettersack.
Who loves packing?
Ok, no one does. But it doesn’t have to be that bad. I’ve never been a great packer. I was always the person who just threw everything into a bag and hoped everything would fit. Without a system or a thought behind how I was packing. Maybe you are the same way. Or not. Either way, you should really use packing organizers.
The internet is full of advice about everything and travel is no exception. Some of it is better than others so I decided to make a list of all of my favorite tips I’ve been given either in person on the road or on the internet.
You all know this. You get home after a trip and your wallet is full of coins and bills of a foreign currency and you have no idea what to do with it. Let me help you with that.
It was my first backpacking trip, my first trip to South East Asia and a lot of other firsts. It was very scary at first but thanks to the warm welcome of all the other travellers that vanished soon. I learned a lot of new things during those two weeks. First of all that two weeks is way too short. It’s more like a sneak peek than an actual trip.
On our 4-week road trip across the western United States, Lake Tahoe was our first destination after departing from San Francisco.
We stayed at the Meeks Bay Resort with our RV. It is located directly at the lake at Emerald Bay. When we arrived it was already the down season so we managed to get a space for our RV with full hookup for only $30 a night. It was one of my favorite campgrounds we stayed at during the four weeks.
One question that I get asked a lot is how I could afford to travel during school and my apprenticeship without earning a huge salary. It’s actually a lot easier than you might think. Consistency is key.
No matter how you want to travel, it’s cheaper than you think but it probably isn’t free. Some money will be required to get you going.
While the Grand Canyon might be bigger than the Bryce Canyon in every way, Bryce Canyon is something you should not miss. I would even go so far and say that if you could only visit one, visit Bryce Canyon.
Dutch food has a reputation to be not the greatest. Together with British food it might be considered the worst food in Europe. And yes, it’s very hard to compete if you get compared to Italy, Spain, France etc. So, does Dutch food deserve it’s reputation? Yes.
A few months ago I already wrote about my favorite flight search engine Google Flights. Since then Google has worked a lot towards improving their travel products. They released Google Trips a few weeks ago which sounded very promising so I had to give it a go.
