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. They’re affordable and they’re designed specifically for travellers, so they know the run-down on what happens on the road. Although I’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 it’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 you’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!
I’m a big fan of group travel, and I’ve travelled with Contiki twice now. They’re excellent at making things comfortable for those who haven’t travelled before. And if you use promo code PPCCWALSH, you’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. It’s a reusable menstrual cup that collects your flow and only needs to be changed every 12 hours. It’s completely non-messy, and I wouldn’t be able to live without it!
Innovative travel gear! It’s a dress, skirt, maxi…AND it’s reversible.
