Booking.com (Hotels & Apartments Worldwide)
I often use Booking.com to book accommodation options, both for trips in Asia and Europe. Booking.com offers an incredible range of hotels, serviced apartments, even hostels, and at great prices than direct booking from the hotel. Best of all, the rooms are often free cancellations should you change your mind. Check your preferred stays for your next trip!
Expedia (Flight &/Or Hotel Combos)
Expedia offers great prices and deals, especially when you’re looking to put together flight+hotel combo packages. I’ve used Expedia at different times to book packages, discounted flight fares, and hotels. In fact, my first solo trip to Tokyo was easily settled by booking the flight & hotel combo!
Skyscanner (Flight Pricing)
If you’ve never tried Skyscanner before, you have to give it a chance! It searches across different airlines for the best flight prices at your time of checking. Afraid to book through third-party agents with dodgy names? I like to use Skyscanner’s pricing as a guide, then book directly from the airlines.
Yoga outfits / Hiking pants
No matter I’m taking a flight, doing yoga poses in the hotel room, or even hiking in Bhutan, Onzie is my go-to brand for apparels. The material is smooth, soft, stretchy, wicks moisture away and really comfortable to wear. It’s cooling, so if you’re hiking in cold weather, put on a layer of thermal leggings underneath & you’re good to go! I secretly hope Onzie won’t be too popular so others won’t wear the same as me, but since you’re my reader, I’m sharing with you. Check out Onzie today!
Love documenting your trips and memories but find it too much of a hassle to journal on a notebook? Day One is a journalling app that I loved so much I paid a premium subscription for. Even the free version is great for quickly noting down words in different text formats, lets you insert photos, records where you’re journalling from and more.
Travelling or not, Headspace is a wonderfully designed app that makes meditation easier. With 10 free meditation guided sessions that you can repeat as many times as you like, as a traveller, Headspace helps to make falling asleep in foreign countries easier.
Commonly used for project-management, I actually love using Trello to note my trip full itinerary & plonk in useful information like addresses, directions and more. Trello might not work fully without mobile data though, do note this. Trello syncs on the cloud across different devices.
After trying different web-hosts over the years both as a consumer and a professional designer, I’m so glad to have finally found Siteground. Their Live Chat support is always prompt, helpful and professional experts. It helps that they’re also all warm and polite on their end. My websites have hardly experienced any downtime. I highly recommend Siteground for all your web-hosting needs, no matter if you’re a blogger or am looking for stable hosts! Check out Siteground’s plans out today!
