Have you ever seen a photograph on a travel blog that took your breath away, read a post that changed your opinion of a destination and left you desperate to go there or found a travel tip that made you wonder how you managed to get by without it? I certainly have.

Next month I’ll be starting a new series on the award-winning website 101 Holidays where I’ll be sharing my favourite travel posts, photography and tips from the previous month. So if you come across a fascinating article, a stunning photography essay, a post that shows a destination in a new light or an unusual adventure, in fact anything from an independent travel blogger that you think is worth shouting about, shout at me! I’m particularly keen to discover some lesser known sites that deserve greater recognition.

I’m looking forward to writing this monthly column and I’d really appreciate your input! Please let me know what inspires you in the world of travel blogging by leaving a comment here, emailing me at travelwithkat@rocketmail.com or tweeting me @TravelWithKat.

Travel Insurance

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.


Travel clothes for women

Book your hotel or package holiday

TripAdvisor is my preferred hotel search engine. They compare all the top sites to find you the best deal. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.


Book your flight

Skyscanneris my preferred flight search engine. I'd recommend them for finding the best deals on flights.

Rent a car

Discover Carsis a great site for comparing car hire prices to help you find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.


Book an experience

When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions. You can't beat a good food tour to introduce you to a new city!


Don’t forget your travel adaptor

Worldwide travel adaptors are perfect no matter where you are travelling from or to. Buy this one from the US or this one from the UKIt’s pretty much the only one you’ll ever need. Please note that as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
