I book all of our hotels through booking.com. I find the hotel selections excellent and free cancellation is available on most of their bookings. They have over 1 million properties to choose from so you are sure to find the perfect accommodation for your needs.
These are the essential items of travel kit that I always take with me.
I have a number of Travelon and Pacsafe bags and would NEVER travel without them. After a trip to Paris when thieves attempted to steal from my backpack (unsuccessfully) the bags have paid for themselves.
For day trips and city guides I recommend Get Your Guide. They have more than 30,000 activities available in 7500 destinations so are sure to have something you will want to do. Great prices and reliability make this the number one choice for me!
I know I am recommending another website but this is really the BEST site for planning your train travel anywhere in the world. This is the first place I turn when thinking about logistics when we travel by train.
