Traveller Resources

As long-term backpackers, we feel we’ve learned a lot over the past few years of non-stop travel.

Our Traveller Resources are here to inspire, help and inform you while you plan your adventures. There’s no reason you can’t do the same and travel like us!

If you have any travel questions or concerns, please drop us an email and we’ll be happy to help you out.

Essential Tips Before You Travel

Buy all necessary Guidebooks!

Definitely grab all your guidebooks before you head to your chosen destination! You can’t always reply on buying them when you arrive, unless you like photocopied fakes. 😉

Organise your Accommodation before you arrive

Checking out accommodation costs well in advance can save you a fortune in the long-term. Plus arriving knowing where you’re actually staying will save loads of stress! When you want to indulge yourself, click here for some tips, or check out Loveholidays!

Set up Dropbox or Flickr for photo backup!

Dropbox allows you to upload and store your files securely in the cloud to access anywhere. You start with 2GB of space, but can earn up to 16GB by recommending friends!

Flickr offers a massive 1TB for free, keeping your image and video files at full resolution and quality, unlike Facebook

Save up enough money!

Simple, but save more money before you travel! That extra round at the bar back home will buy dinner, drinks and dessert for 2 in Thailand!

Our Travel Funnies are silly observations, weird experiences, crazy goings-on and everything else that’s amused us on our adventures so far.
