One thing I’ve often noticed during my visits to The Gambia, is that women always look so wonderful in their colourful outfits, like these ladies in Kotu craft market, who have just finished work for the day. I come back from a day out with my hair all over the place, covered in dust, and quite frankly, looking like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards. How do they do it?

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.

Happy Tobaski!

Once a year, about 70 days after the end of Ramadan, virtually the whole of The Gambia holds a barbecue!...
