Links & Apps

Collection of crucial links that have been helping and inspiring me!!! Hope they can help you too 😀

 

My favourite Travel Blogs

Now that I officially started planning my trip, and decided to join the travel blog world, I couldn’t quite believe the amount of travel blogs I have found and the great tips, advice and stories their share with us all. It is so amazing and I often find myself at 2:00 am getting lost in these travellers’ worlds! It truly inspires me plus is so comforting to know that I am not alone and there’s plenty of adventure seekers pursuing a less ordinary life. Here are some of my favourite bloggers/blogs, some of them old friends of mine, some complete strangers that I would love to meet someday around this tiny little planet we call Earth 🙂

 

Plan your trip

Preparing for a trip will never be easy, but we are so lucky to be part of a generation and a time where with only a telephone/tablet/computer and internet connection, we are just one click away from a massive list of tools to help us plan and prepare for our dream! Please find a selection of links that contain information on the countries, visas, flight planning, tour ideas, insurance, work abroad, finding travel buddies, creating your blog etc. I use them pretty much all the time as it saves me a lot of time and money 😉

 

A place to snooze and recharge batteries

For a long term traveler, home is where your heart is (and your 20 kilos of stuff). But I find it important to have a place to call home even for a day,  where I can not only charge my camera, my laptop, my phone, etc but mainly to recharge my own batteries. Here’s a selection of links I use to help me find a place to sleep, shower and increase my knowledge about the culture I am in. Been an avid HC and CF user for over 10 years now, I have been a host and been hosted for literally thousands of times, it is still my favourite way of travelling! Also, I do love to find places on the go, very often I arrive to a town and go to knock on hotels/hostels doors and ask to see the rooms and negotiate prices, it works really well for me.

 

Books, Movies and Documentaries

Well, what can I say. This is probably what inspires us the most…. I can drink books, love to consume its pages as they make me travel and dream even higher. Same for the good old Hollywood and some of their fantastic images that became cult films to me… same for extraordinary documentaries… Here is a selection of some of my favourites when it comes to travel and lifestyle. 🙂
