Travel Resources

After three years of traveling around the world, we have found a bunch of travel resources that can help you out. We’ve put down all of our favorite tools, brands, and website that we have found helpful over the years. 

All of the stuff listed on this page is stuff we’ve used and loved! We have to admit that brands like Patagonia and Prana cost a bit more, but we love their ethos and quality.

Packing Tips & Travel Gear

Our collection of travel gear and experience continues to grow every year. When we first left to travel the world we made so many mistakes. It’s easy to pack too much, too little, or just all together the wrong stuff. 

We’ve cursed gear and we’ve praised it. When you spend months on end traveling you learn to find the best gear possible to make your life easier. Check out our travel gear page to learn more.
