Our Travel Essentials

Ever since the moment we met in Paris five years ago, Simon and I travelled quite a lot. When we were leaving apart in different countries, we would visit each other, we went on holidays together and more recently, we spent six months backpacking through Asia. Even though you don’t pack the same way for a week of holidays or a long-term backpacking trip, we have developed some habits and there are a few things that we can’t travel without anymore.

How much does it cost to travel Hong Kong?

If you have read this blog before, you might remember that we didn’t exactly fall in love with Hong Kong. After a month in Japan, where the streets are clean and people are kind and helpful (even though they don’t speak English), we ended up in the crowded and dirty streets of Wan Chai where I felt uncomfortable and stared at. It wasn’t our favourite destination but we would still encourage other travellers to go and experience it by themselves. Although we met people who share our point of view about the city, a lot of people actually love it there and expats are countless.

How to Travel Hawaii on Only $60 per Day

Hawaii is the most expensive destination we’ve been to. Even Japan didn’t seem that expensive to us after spending six weeks in Hawaii! But we were determined to make it work on a budget and we did. We ended up spending $60 per day and per person which is pretty good for a state like Hawaii. Here is how we did it.

How our World Tour Turned into a Travel through Asia

In 2014, we came back from a trip to Jamaica with one goal: tour the world. We would take two years to prepare and organise this adventure and the list of countries we wanted to visit was already endless.

Essential Oils For Great Travellers

Those of you who know me also know that I wouldn’t go anywhere without my oils. I simply use them everyday, for their skin benefits, their odors and even for cleaning the house.

A Guide To Vaccinations For South-East Asia

Now that we have defined our itinerary and budget, it is time to think about a concrete aspect of our trip: vaccinations.

How to Organise Your Next Trip With Pinterest

The advantages of Pinterest are not to be proven anymore. You have access to a lot of information about pretty much anything very quickly and it is just too easy to spend hours on it.

Long-Term Travel: Define Your Itinerary and Budget

Organising a long journey implies significant involvement and takes time. It has been about a year and a half since we started to think seriously about this trip and saving up for it. Now, it’s time to buckle down and start planning.
