This is a travel blogging course from Nomadic Matt, one of the most successful bloggers in the world. It includes all the business details required for running a blog, as well as courses in writing, photography, and video.
I SWEAR by World Nomads. Theyâ€™re affordable and theyâ€™re designed specifically for travellers, so they know the run-down on what happens on the road. Although Iâ€™ve had really great experiences with AMEX too — their customer service is unbeatable.
Long-term insurance? I went with Merit Travel for my year-long Germany trip on my youth mobility visa. This one is only applicable to Canadians, though. But itâ€™s comprehensive and tends to be the go-to insurance for Canadians doing a work/travel program.
I almost exclusively use Skyscanner.net to book my flights (their prices are always cheapest), or Google Flights. My rule is to not book through third-party sites, but directly from the airline via websites like Skyscanner.
When youâ€™re doing really convoluted flights, I LOVE FlightFox! Basically you put up your route with a price, and travel hackers will try to find you the perfect route. The person who succeeds wins your bid!
Iâ€™m a big fan of group travel, and Iâ€™ve travelled with Contiki twice now. Theyâ€™re excellent at making things comfortable for those who havenâ€™t travelled before. And if you use promo code PPCCWALSH, youâ€™ll get $100 off any Contiki trip 7 days or longer.
It would not be a stretch to say the DivaCup has changed my life. Itâ€™s a reusable menstrual cup that collects your flow and only needs to be changed every 12 hours. Itâ€™s completely non-messy, and I wouldnâ€™t be able to live without it!
Innovative travel gear! Itâ€™s a dress, skirt, maxi…AND itâ€™s reversible.
