Travel Resources

Below are links to some resources that have been incredibly helpful for my travels. They are not in any particular order, and please reach out to me directly if you have questions on any of them!

I use HostelWorld for all of my hostel bookings. The site has reviews and photos of all locations and has been a lifesaver.

Couchsurfing is a network of like-minded travelers who let nomads stay on their couch. Great way to travel cheaply and meet people.

Airbnb is used to book accommodations at private properties.

Expedia is a booking platform for flights, accommodations, etc. I use them for their 24-hour cancellation policy.

Skyscanner finds the best flights for you and allows you to receive flight alerts.

Google Fi is hands down the best wireless carrier for digital nomads. They provide full coverage in over 200 countries and the ability to pause service (no fee) and get a local SIM card instead.

I use Google Flights to compare flight prices across different time parameters. Use this tool along with Skyscanner to track flights.

Does what it says: translates “Pants” to “Pantalones.”

Lonely Planet is my #1 resource for learning about all of my travel destinations. Seriously, you don’t have to use half of the things on this page, but you need this website.

Trip Advisor is great for finding different things to do in each of your destinations. Tours, restaurants, etc., with reviews of each.

Use Tripit to keep all of your itineraries in one place. Particularly useful if you use many different services to book flights, accommodations, events, etc.

World Nomads provides travel insurance. They even have a “Worldwide” coverage option for those with no set itinerary, which is great, albeit expensive.

Meetup is great for meeting people. You can join groups for shared activities (volleyball for example). Also good for organizing or attending group events.

Eventbrite is great for finding events in your destination. Used for anything from concerts to business and networking.

Express VPN is a virtual private network service that keeps your internet activity private on public WiFi networks. A VPN is a must-have for overseas travel, and their service the top of the line!

This is a great app for checking out global exchange rates. Updates regularly with Google’s standard market rates.

Spot is a GPS device that can send pings to others when you’re outside of cell service. It can also alert emergency services for evacuation to your exact coordinates.

Need a global hotspot? Skyroam can be just about everywhere, and they have several affordable plans.

This app is cool. NASA astronauts use it, and you should too. Basically, put in your travel destination and it will help give time-specific tips for doing certain things to avoid jet lag.

WiFi Map is a community-sourced app used to help individuals find local public WiFi spots.
