Luggage


If you need some new luggage before heading off on your trip, then we have a number of guides to set you on the right track. Whether you’re looking for the convenience of a travel backpack or are searching for that perfect wheeled carry-on, we have some great recommendations.

If you are interested in purchasing a travel backpack, then you can’t go wrong with the Osprey Farpoint / Fairview series. We have personally used these backpacks for years and have nothing but praise for them.

Alternatively, if you would rather find a hybrid wheeled backpack so you can get the best of both worlds on your trip, then be sure to check out the Osprey Farpoint / Fairview Wheels.

And if you’re simply looking for an excellent carry-on sized suitcase, have a look at the Samsonite Winfield 2 for a lightweight yet spacious choice.

Clothing


Need some new clothes before jetting off on your adventure? We’re here to help!

Whether you need a great, waterproof jacket to keep you warm and dry in Europe (we recommend the North Face Resolve for this!), an excellent and stylish pair of shoes that provide all-day comfort and style (make sure to check out the Ecco Soft 7) or want to find some incredibly stylish clothing that is made for travelling (we absolutely love Bluffworks for this very reason!), then we have written a guide for you.

Make sure to browse the guides below to find the perfect clothing for wherever you may be visiting!

Accessories


Travel accessories can come in many shapes and sizes and you may not even know what you’ll need for your trip until you start putting in the research.

Whether you’ve read that packing cubes are the best and easiest way to organise your luggage (the Eagle Creek Pack-It Compression Cubes have revolutionised our packing!) or you’ve realised that an anti-theft travel handbag is a great way to give you peace of mind while wandering the streets of a busy city (that’s why I never leave home without my Pacsafe Citysafe Convertable Backpack), we’ve got a number of accessory guides to help you figure out the bits and pieces you may need before leaving on your trip.

Staying Connected


Travelling in the modern age means that you seriously need to consider how you plan to stay connected while on your trip. While it is always a great idea to unplug from your devices and try to be more present, sometimes that’s not always practical and you need to have a data plan and a way to stay safe on the internet while you’re on the road.

So if you’re looking for the perfect SIM card with data to make sure that you can easily access navigation and keep in contact with friends and family, then we suggest checking out the Orange Prepaid SIM or the Three Prepaid SIM for Europe.

And if you plan to connect to a number of different WiFi networks, then you should also really consider investing in a VPN. We personally love Express VPN because it keeps our sensitive information secure on open wireless networks and also allows us to watch streaming services from all over the world!
