This week’s travel snap is also my entry for Round 46 of Travel Photo Roulette
with the theme of ‘Smile’.

If you’d like to enter you’ll find all the details and all the entries on the website 2Away
who are the hosts for this round.

I took this photo while visiting a school in The Gambia.
We were there making a short film about tourism helping local people.

Here’s a link to the film called ‘Nyodema’ which means ‘helping each other’ in Mandinka (and it’s also the name of community group that I’m involved with that helps schools in The Gambia). In this film you’ll see the school where this photo was taken as well as an interview with your’s truly which they sprung on me out of the blue!

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.

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.

 

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, 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.

 

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.
