Best guidebooks and travel maps
Even though we love online resources to plan our travels, sometimes a good old fashioned guidebook and map can make your trip planning easier. Here are our favorite maps and travel guide books available worldwide:
- Lonely Planet – great practical advice from independent travel researchers. Our favorite guides for Asia and South America
- DK Eyewitness – deep historical and cultural guides with excellent graphics for understanding the context of the places you visit
- Rick Steves – America’s favorite authority on European destinations has a great mix of context and practical advice
Best travel photography gear
If you love capturing photographic memories of your trips like we do, it pays to invest in some great equipment. You might be surprised to learn that most of our photos are taken with my Samsung Galaxy S9 phone but when I want to slow down and capture the moment I use my Olympus Pen Mirrorless camera or Canon EOS DSLR
Best travel shoes
Travel shoes must be comfortable but there is no reason to compromise on style. Classic footwear is the best way to go when planning for any trip. Here are some of our favorite styles for women.
Summer travel style
Summer vacations are fun to pack for. Throw in a couple of cotton dresses, a floppy sun hat, sandals and sunglasses and you’re ready to go.
Best handbags for travel
I always carry a crossbody bag on our travels. This is the best style for keeping belongings safe and close to hand. There are many stylish options to choose from so it is the best of practicality and style.You can read our full guide to buying a crossbody bag suitable for travel here.
Best travel luggage
We never regret investing in high quality luggage. Most of our suitcases are made by Away, Samsonite or Delsey and they have stood the test of time and battery by hundreds of luggage carousels.
