Our travel tips

How to prepare your travel

We love planning new trips. This is where the travel dreams fly the highest. Admittedly it can sometimes be a big task to get a handle on all the formalities, bookings, and practical preparations.

How do you find the best flight tickets? Do you need to buy a visa before departure? Where to stay and what to pack? And how to make your travel dreams and budget work together? We don't have all the answers, but we are happy to share the experiences we have assimilated over the years.

Below you can find our travel guides and checklists. We have also listed the search engines and travel sites that we ourselves use and think are the best. Over time, we will update the site and provide tips covering all sorts of things about traveling, resources, gear, and essentials.

Can't find the travel tip you're looking for, or do you have questions? Feel free to contact us or even better write your comment on a relevant blog post. In that way other travellers can read along and join in with their experience.

Happy traveling!

Before you travel

20 useful things to know

Regardless of how you travel, what your budget is, and where you are going, there are several practical things that are good to check before departure.

Our prefered

Travel resources


Our preferred search engine is MOMONDO. Here you can compare prices, put together round trips, find the cheapest departure days and find inspiration for new destinations.


Depending on the destination, travel dreams, and length of stay, our go-to booking sites are either BOOKING or AIRBNB. They have a wide selection for all budgets.

If you use Booking on a regular basis you qualify for their loyality program ‘Genius’ and get discount on selected hotels.

Car rental

We have gradually tested several carrental companies without having found a preferred one. Instead, we use the search engine RENTAL CARS to find the best offer.

Travel guides

We are big fans of blogs and social media when looking for travel tips. But we always combine research with TRAVEL BOOKS.

Both novels about the destination and travel guides that provide an overall overview. AMAZON is our go-to bookshop.


For us, the best thing about traveling is the freedom to experience things on our own. However, there are some attractions that are either better or only accessible with a guide.

We can recommend GET YOUR GUIDE. Here you can check prices, book tickets in advance to avoid queuing and find inspiration for other attractions.


We always drop by GOOGLE MAPS and TRIP ADVISOR, where other travellers share personal reviews of hotels, restaurants, and attractions.

We suggest reading the reviews with a healthy amount of skepticism, but overall, it's a good way to get a fast feel for what to pay attention to.
