How to Find Flights



This is my ultimate flight checker. I LOVE that you can choose by the month to see the cheapest date and you can choose “flexible” to find the cheapest city to wander to!

Google Flights

Google Flights has a great set up for seeing the entire month’s price before even clicking anywhere and I love seeing a map! But no “flexible” option.

Secret Flying

I haven’t used any of these deals (because they tend to have certain date availability only), but holy moly there are some good ones! It’s worth following their Facebook to see what error fares they have found.



FREE $20 for airbnb

By far the most comfortable stays I’ve had! You get something way more homey than a hotel. Plus you get a free $20 with my link. Boop! You’re welcome, friend!


I’ve used Agoda for ages now . It’s the best way to look up accommodation around the world. Even if you don’t book, it’s the perfect way to search what’s available and gives you an idea of the prices in the area.

Literally, hotels combined. They combine all the deals on offer for your selection from many of the popular hotel search sites.

A MASSIVE variety of properties to choose from. They offer hotels to homes.


Couchsurfing is always an option too! Not just for accommodation, but for meeting new people too!

Dealing with Money


Hands down the only travel card an American traveler needs. You get reimbursed for each ATM fee incurred and they don’t charge a dime themselves. Depending on what account you open, you could get $100 bucks (code REFER. nonaffiliated)

THE easiest way to transfer money, especially in different currencies, around the world. It doesn’t hurt to compare, but I’ve found it to be the cheapest.

Travel Gear


GoPro Hero 3+

My ultimate camera. I like landscapes and I like not being faced in pics because I’m not even the slightest bit photogenic, awkward AF annnddd I’m clumsy sooo. GoPro is the answer for me.

GoPro Accessories

For a mere few bucks, these accessories and extra parts come in handy. Don’t make fun of the selfie stick, it’s actually a great way to get an epic pic.

Canon 70D

This is the bf’s baby. I make him take pics of me all the time, but he somehow still loves me. He uses it to take epic photos, not just of me, and for his vlogs.

iPhone lifeproof case

I literally can’t have nice things. I ruin it. Unless it has a case, and even then… This case has saved my phone nearly everyday if its life. Bless.

iPhone 5 SE

Best phone I’ve had so far. Essentially an iPhone 6 but smaller, therefore, in my eyes, better for a traveler. The camera is excellent too!

Macbook Air

This is the Macbook I use! I’m all about the Apple products. I find them to be worth the extra cash because they last longer. I work online, so I can’t have my computer breaking down.

Dry Bag

I love this bag. Boat trip? Snorkeling? Beach? Rainy day? Waterfall chasing? THIS bag can go there with no issues. I have two. One of them is over 5 years old and going strong.


I have something like this, but this one is better. I’m due for a new one soon actually!

Carry on Backpack

These old-school backpacks really are my favorite. They last forever and are perfect for carry-on luggage. I use two!

Travel Blog Resources


Travel Blog Success

An investment, yes. An invaluable resource that continuously gets updated, yes. Totally worth it, yes, but only if you’re seriously thinking of starting a successful travel blog.


Most bloggers recommend Blue Host, but if you don’t want to deal with massive issues later down the road, I can’t recommend SiteGround more. I signed up with BH because I was being cheap, but Site Ground is worth the extra money.

Elegant Themes

Serious about blogging? I got the lifetime membership for two simple reasons. I’m awful at coding and figuring out technical aspect, so their support team is there anytime I need them. I also change my mind often and they have a plethora of themes to choose from. Boom. Sorted. (I use Divi theme)
