Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Inch

We love to read and surf the internet while on the move and cannot recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 enough. It is light weight and has a great battery life for those long haul flights we dread. It has built in WiFi and additional storage for photo editing etc. Check it out.

Our laptop is one of the most important items we travel with. If we didn’t have a fast, lightweight and durable laptop while we were travelling then we wouldn’t be able to run our blog. It is perfect for editing photos with Lightroom as well as watching movies on. Check it out.

While I would love to upgrade to the SIII, it just isn’t feasible. This phone allows us to update our travel blog in real-time as well as take amazing photos for Instagram. It is the perfect smartphone in our opinion. Check it out.

Hotels.comimage 3032045 10772148

We love to use because it allows us to earn one free night of accommodation for every 10 nights that we book. And considering we travel a LOT, we earn lots of free nights. They also have lots of special deals and sales for every city around the world.


Couchsurfing allows you to find spare rooms or couches around the world for free. Perfect for meeting the locals and saving money. You can even host couchsurfers in your own home if you want to return the favour.

Expediaimage 3032045 10517623

Expedia can be a good option for finding package deals for accommodation, flights and experiences. They also seem to beat most other cruise comparison sites too. And once you start booking with them regularly they have a great loyalty program. is one of my other go-to sites when I am looking to book my accommodation online before embarking on my next adventure. I love showing up to a place knowing I don’t have to door knock to find a bed for that night. With I can just dump my bags and start exploring.
