I’ve put together a short list with links to resources that have helped me both in my travels and my writing career.
These are based on my most frequently asked questions through email. I hope they help you in your journey, wherever you may be!
Regarding Travel Logistics…
Here are a few essential favorites…
The Flight Deal
Scott’s Cheap Flights
(especially for travel in Asia)
(will often browse here even if I book directly.)
Rome 2 Rio
(great to plan transport from point A to point B)
Foursquare City Guides
The only credit card I use for travel: Chase Sapphire Reserve
(Readers get 10% off with code: parttimetraveler)
Ever since I was robbed of $4,000+ worth of equipment while traveling in Colombia, I’ve become an even bigger proponent of travel insurance.
World Nomads is my favorite because they cover a large amount of the value of your electronics (which many of us travel with) and they have an excellent reputation. I haven’t had any issues filing claims or getting answers to my questions!
I recently upgraded my camera gear to the Sony A7Rii. This has been the best full-frame camera for the variety of shots I take around San Francisco and on my travels.
