Recommendations & Useful Links
On this page you will find links to websites and tools that I find useful for planning my travels. I also share a few of my favourite recommendations for tours, accommodation and products that I would happily recommend to a friend or indeed anyone reading my website. I have not been paid to endorse these websites (I wish) but it’s just another way I can share my favourites with fellow travellers to help you on your journey. And lastly, my fellow travel bloggers who give me ideas and inspiration.
HostelWorld is a great source for finding cheap hostels. Includes facilities, reviews and maps which are always useful!
