Travel Resources

Even I get by with a little bit of help . . .
Travel planning can feel like a daunting task. You have to look at various aspects of travel like getting affordable flights, reliable accommodations, pick travel-friendly products to record memories and stay connected. You also have think about damage control if things go wrong (and they will). Prevention is better than cure, mis amigos.

And life happens whether we travel or not. It just makes sense to make it easier for yourself by cutting the crap.

I also love carrying my personality and never leave without my Bullet Journal. If you want to try Bullet Journaling for yourself, I’ve added are some of the best options I could find.

Or if you are curious exactly what I use to keep this blog sailing smooth, well, you have it.

I’ve picked these out from an ocean of options and personally use and trust them just to save you (and me) the trouble of decision fatigue. And have the convenience of finding everything in one place.

cheap flights
If I have to look for cheap properties, I always make sure to have a look at Agoda. Can’t really leave a great deal behind now, right?
Travelling on a Budget is challenging. But finding cheap flights won’t be anymore. I browse Dollar Flight Club regularly to find deals for places I’m planning to go. They send email alerts every time there’s a deal that can’t be ignored. And now with their new premium+ service, they are making travelling business and first class within your grasp. Use code DFCbusiness50 to get 50% off the membership. Even one flight booked will pay itself off many times over.
Booking Accommodation
Momondo is one of the most reliable search engine for finding flights. And you find them at quite the deal sometimes. Book your next flight using Momondo.
Every time I spontaneously decide to go to a place, I look for property options in the place while on a bus to the said place. They have great deals and most of the properties have free cancellation. If you want to book a property for visa purposes, it’s a great choice as you have the freedom to change your plans last minute.

blogging essentials
Professional blogging requires dedicated web-hosting. Think of this as your space that you own and can build anything on. I have hosted with Rovity for over a year now and my website has rarely run into issues since. When it does, I take the opportunity to trouble them for the smallest of my queries, which they resolve patiently. Their shared web-hosting plans are extremely economical and beginner friendly at less than a dollar.

That means you can customise every aspect of the theme. With their drag-and-drop builder, it is easier than ever for non-coders to create responsive pixel-perfect websites in a fraction of the time.
podcasting

You also get detailed stats for your podcast. Which is Awesome! Use promo code prerana at checkout for 1 free month of hosting and stats.
productivity
Freedom gives you time. The reason why I’m so productive is because of this tool right here. Freedom to blocks online distractions, apps that I would otherwise spend endlessly scrolling or streaming. When it’s work time, it’s actually “work time”.
