Good, Solid & Reliable Travel Information


There are some great web sites out there with incredible amounts of information on them that all travellers should read. They hold a wealth of information such as what to wear, what to pack, what to see, what jabs are needed etc. Not to mention information on how to keep your self safe, how to communicate non verbally, travelling with kids and more.

These are some of our favourite travel sites:

Travel Independent (Incredibly useful site)

Art Of Travel (European and world backpacking)

Rick Steve's Europe (Always a good read)

Smartraveller (Australian government's travel advisory site)
