Travel resources, tools and tips

Catle. Miramare, Italy, Trieste, travel

Our visit to the Miramare castle was planed using Airbnb and lots of internet.

Here is a short list of our favorite tools, resources and tips for planning a trip

Where to sleep?

We used to book rooms only, now we search for apartments or private rooms with kitchenette on Airbnb. It makes traveling with a toddler a lot easier.

Airbnb gives 30 Eur (40 $) discount to  all new users. Use this link to sign up.

Booking has something for everyone. From beds in hostels to 5 star hotels.  Use the filters and check special offers. Get 10% off your booking with this link.

We love road trips

At the beginning stages of planning we use ViaMichelin for route ideas. On the road Google maps app. usually does the trick. For offline areas, we download maps in advance.

How to get to the Airport?

We have used Goopti shuttle service a few times. You can get 5 eur discount for first booking here. They also provide baby chairs, but must be notified in advance.

What to do there?

Check on your favorite blogs. Ask questions about current situation in a country on Lonely Planet’s Thorn Three Forum. Their books are awesome too.



Lately, Goblinette finds lots of great ideas on a supportive community for women who travel with more than 50K members globally – Facebook Community GoWonder or on the website GoWonder.
