Travel 101 Guides

I want to help you make the most of your travels – however long the duration, whatever budget you have planned, whichever region you choose.

On this page I have included personal tips, my unsolicited suggestions, helpful resources and links, and best practices that I have used and tweaked during my years of solo traveling.

With these pages, I hope to alleviate your stress during travel preparation and pre-planning, offer you potentially unexplored, non-traditional transport options, and show you how to go farther and spend less money during your travels.
