TOURS

Tour Radar, great website for tours all over the world! They have all the big names like Contiki, G Adventures, Intrepid, Top Deck, aswell as local operators.

I did a tour to the Isle of Skye using them and they were cheaper than going directly, but if you find a tour for less elsewhere they do a price match guarantee. On top of that if you use my direct link you will get an extra 5% off your booking! (which means more holiday spending money for you :D). I’m currently eyeing up a few Namibia tours 🙂

Tour Radar are also currently running a competition to win a trip for 2 to bike or hike around Europe.

Inca Trail in Peru, I went with Peru Treks and had an amazing time, they looked after us so well and even baked us a cake on the mountain to celebrate us reaching Machu Picchu. Can’t recommend them enough and they are very competitively priced. Remember to book atleast 4 months in advance to get your hiking permit before they run out. Check here for up to date info on permit availability.

CAMERA

The question I get asked the most, is what camera do I use. I have a few but as I love to pack light, and rarely travel with more than 7kg, I try my best to only take my hiking camera, my trusted compact Nikon 1 J4, its light and solid, and has built in wifi. You can get a zoom lens and a wide angle lens and its very easy to use.

ACCOMODATION

Airbnb is always a favourite especially if there is a group travelling, use this link for £30 off your first booking!

Expedia has a great search function and is very competitive in terms of pricing.

FLIGHTS

When booking flights theres two sites I use every time, without fail!

Kayak has a great visual tool and the ‘Explore’ function even lets you filter flight destinations by temperature, time of year and holiday activities available e.g. skiing, golfing etc.

Skyscanner is an old favourite, and I’ll always use it to make sure I have the cheapest option before booking. I have used the ‘I want to fly Everywhere’ tool, countless times and some of my all time favourite trips have resulted from a last minute decision based on the ‘Everywhere’ tool.
