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.

Zerowaste travel gear

We try to reduce our environmental impact when we travel. This usually goes well with budget travel. We bring our own thermos and don’t buy water in plastic bottles , where possible. We bring our own bags when shopping, pack dirty clothes in reusable bags instead of plastic ones and pack lunch in thermos or one of our favorite snack bags from Tidy Owl store.

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.

Booking has something for everyone. From beds in hostels to 5 star hotels.  Use the filters and check special offers.

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.

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.
