Travel & Blogging Resources

Travelling and blogging require planning and, most often, at least a hotel booking. Therefore, I want to share with you what I use for my travels and my blog.

As always, don’t be afraid to reach out if you have any questions. Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are my favourite virtual places to spend time when I am not travelling.

Accommodation

Booking is my go-to travel resource to check prices, accommodations reviews, maps for accommodations. Basically, I use it a lot. When I have to travel longer, I install the app on my phone, and finding accommodation is easier.

Flights and Transport

Kiwi.com is one of my favourite flight search engines. I can check all kinds of flight connections and prices. After checking a flight here (and always in incognito mode in your browser), go to that airline’s website and check the price there too. For some tickets, it might be cheaper to buy them from Kiwi.

Colibra is the app that will claim compensation for any airline delays for you without any hassle. All you need to do is to scan your boarding pass.  Read my blog about Colibra and how to claim flight delays with the app.

Some countries are best explored and discovered if you drive and go where tour agencies wouldn’t take you! I did this on my 7-day trip in Jordan, and I recommend you do the same in countries with many attractions or not-so-great public transport. I recommend Sixt car renting company. I had no problems, and everything was just great!

Check out all rental companies on RentalCars and pick the best option for you.

And if you want to backpack around Europe, then your best bet is Omio, which provides all you need to know about buses (the cheapest mean of transport in Europe) and trains.

For cities, I use Bolt instead of regular taxis. It’s always cheaper.

Travel guides & apps

HiHiGuide helps you get the local experience by helping you meet with a local to be your guide! Just search for the city you are going to visit and choose your city guide! Or you can even become a guide yourself!

One other app that I use is GetYourGuide, which allows me to book even last-minute tours and activities in foreign countries. I used it a lot in Morocco and other places.

I started out as a budget travel blogger, and I still like to save money while travelling. That’s why I recommend you get a Revolut or Wise card before travelling to Europe. It will save a lot when getting cash out from an ATM or simply paying with it in a foreign country.

Blogging Resources

Blog hosting

I use WordPress, and I chose SiteGround to host my blog. I recommend it, although you have to ask yourself if you are really serious about blogging before committing to the best hosting service for bloggers. Why do I say this? Because I had an absolutely terrible experience with another company, and I hope others don’t go through that.

Blog Tools

I have used Grammarly for a few years now, and I recommend using it if you want to upgrade your writing skills.

As a blogger, I am constantly looking for new ideas for my blogs, and I want to find the perfect keywords for SEO. That’s why I use Keysearch. It’s an affordable option, and it will help you get great SEO results in any language.

For Instagram, I use Hashtastic for researching my hashtags and monitor my account growth,

Cryptocurrency investments

I’ve talked about travelling a lot, and sometimes something stops you from buying another plane ticket. It’s your bank account credentials. I am also a cryptocurrency girl (I work as a freelancer writing about cryptocurrency projects), and money definitely counts as a travel resource.

I want to introduce to you Coinbase, probably the easiest way to get into crypto. It’s a simple-to-use, straightforward platform where you can exchange your USD, EUR or other currency that you may have into crypto.

Get €8 of free Bitcoin if you use this link to sign up and buy or sell at least €87 worth of digital currency.

If you want to trade crypto, then there’s no better place to do that than on Binance. Get here a free 100USDT voucher for fees after you deposit $50 into your account.
