Transportation

momondoMomondo

This is usually my number one choice when I am searching for a flight. The website is user-friendly with a well designed interface and it will definitely help you find the cheapest price around. Besides flights you can also search for hotels and car rentals.

 

skyscannerSkyscanner

Skyscanner is another great search comparison website. The reason I love it is because it also includes budget carriers to find the cheapest flight. It also shows the cheapest flights from your local airport which can be handy if you’re not really picky about the destination you wanna visit.

 

Accommodation

booking.comBooking

I find Booking the best website for booking accommodation as it probably has the best listing of properties worldwide. From hostels, hotels, apartments and villas you’ll surely find something that suits your needs and budget. Also the interface is easy to use and the booking process is quick and simple.

couchsurfingCouchsurfing

The world’s largest social travel network. Couchsurfing helps you find a host in every country free of charge and most importantly connect with other open and fun people no matter where you are. The site also lists various events across the world that you can attend.

Hostels can keep your costs down significantly. Hostel World is a great website to choose one as its interface is really easy to use and there are no booking fees.

Equipment

I use this 10 MP digital camera with 26x optical zoom and I find it great for travel. It is light weight which makes it easier to bring along too. And the best thing is its HD video mode.

I just adore this backpack. Quality and design are really good. It’s perfect for daily use and it has a separate sleeve for laptop. You can also fit in some clothes and books which makes it a great option for students too.
