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.
- The 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferriss
- Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel
- World Nomads: World Nomads – The company I’ve bought my travel insurance from for the last two years. I’ve written up my thoughts on a special travel insurance page.
- Hostel Bookers: www.hostelbookers.com – 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.
- Skyscanner: www.skyscanner.net – 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.
- Seat 61: www.Seat61.com – 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.
- Camera: Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Body – I recently upgraded from the Canon 20D to this body and have been loving every second of the upgrade. In addition to the body, I highly recommend two of the lenses I have with me – the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens.
- Backpack: Lowepro Fastpack 250 – I’ve decided this bag is my prized travel possession (outside of the obvious camera & laptop). It has been rugged enough to deal with two years of constant use and has protected my laptop, camera gear, and hard drives through thick and thin.
