These resource pages are ongoing and come from many sources including online searches, word of mouth recommendations, books, pamphlets, brochures, and my own travel experiences.  If you have anything to add, would like something removed, or something isn’t working correctly, please let me know.


Travel Insurance


  • Hostel Bookers: – When I’m expecting a new destination to be busy or otherwise want to have something booked ahead of time, there are two sites to use – Hostel Bookers and Hostel World.  I prefer Hostel Bookers because there is no fee associated with booking the hostel and they’re otherwise pretty much identical.

Air Travel

  • Skyscanner: – A fairly new airline search engine that allows all manner of various air searches across the majority of airlines.  The best part is it includes budget airlines so you don’t have to check them out separately.

Train Travel

  • Seat 61: – The man in Seat 61 – THE resource for anything having to do with train travel.  Seriously, whenever I need to look up anything involving a train, this is where I go.
