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.

Booking is my go-to travel resource to check prices, accommodations’ reviews, map for accommodations. Basically, I use it a lot. When I have to travel for longer, I install the app on my phone, and it’s easier to find accommodation.
Airbnb is an alternative, which can be cheaper if you travel in a group and/or plan for a longer stay. You can find entire apartments to rent, with a kitchen and it could be cheaper to travel if you can cook your own food.
The downsize of Airbnb is that you don’t get the exact location of the accommodation until you book it. Also, some owners have to give their approval for your stay, which can be tricky.

Flights and Transport
Kiwi.com is one of my favourite flight search engines. I can check all kind 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.

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 do not with you that.
I use Grammaly for a few years now, and I recommend using it if you want to upgrade your writing skills.
For Instagram, I use Hashtastic for researching my hashtags and monitor my account growth,
I’ve talked about travelling a lot and sometimes there is something stopping you from buying another plane ticket. It’s your bank account credentials. I am also a cryptocurrency girl, 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, straight forward platform where you can exchange your USD, EUR or other currency that you may have into crypto.
