The Things I Love

Welcome to my resource and recommendation page! I’ve gathered together all the things I love and that help me to travel. From the best booking websites and travel gear to awesome photography equipment and tech – these are the things I don’t leave home without.

These are my go-to sites for the best prices on the web

My No.1 go-to site for finding the best flight deals. One of the largest flight networks out there, you'll be sure to be able to get from A-to-B for the best price. I also love their weekend break map - this shows you the latest prices for short haul flights for the next 30 days. Great if you're looking for a quick, cheap getaway!

I've always been a SkyScanner girl, but Momondo is easily a close second. Their gorgeous interface and handy habit of finding awesome deals have me checking them alongside the other options every time! I love a good flight deal!
Perfect for a quick overview of who flys where. Just type where you are to where you want to go and google will show you which major airlines can take you.
My favorite comparison and review site. As a frequent contributor I understand the importance of reading several reviews before making a decision on where to stay and love using their 'Top 10 Guides' to start my trip planning for new destinations!
With accommodation options to suit all budgets and covering destinations all over the world, you'll find the perfect place to rest your head - wherever in the world you happen to be!
A relatively new kid on the online booking engine block, has fast become my go to site. As well as having great rates, they also give you a night free for ever 10 you book. That's the equivalent of 10% off every booking. If you can commit to one booking engine. is the one to stick with.
Because everyone has heard of this one, right?!
If you don't have time to research, plan and book the perfect action packed itinerary for your time away, and prefer to have everything organised in one go, TourRader offers a range of tours to suit your needs. From short 5 day trips to long overland adventures, there is something to suit everyone. Better still - use this link and 5% off any tour you choose!
Don't fancy the full tour service, but still like to have activities and/or day trips organized - Viator could be exactly what you need. They have fun, interesting and quirky tours available all over the world.
If you don't have time to book all the components of a trip individually, Expedia offers great package deals - flights & hotels all in one place, with prices to suit any budget!

I would never encourage anyone to travel without insurance. If you think it’s expensive or that you don’t need it. Think again. You never know what is going to happen and it’s better to have your ass/possessions covered in case you need help whilst your away. If you can afford to travel – you can afford insurance – and these two are my top picks.

I have used Insure&Go since my first solo trip back in 2008 and I can't recommend them highly enough. Comprehensive policies which cover almost any activity you can think of - they are my ultimate go to insurance!
*Only Available in the UK & Australia
For those outside of the UK & Aus - World Nomads come highly recommended by my travel blogger friends and have got your back for all your travel insurance needs
