There are a variety of resources out there that I use to travel successfully as well as to run Canadians Down Under. Here is a list of some of my favourite tools.
- All travel photos are my own, that I have taken with my Sony Alpha a6000, I love it because it is compact but powerful. It takes up very little room in my purse.
- Any other stock photos featured on my site come from Adobe Stock.
- For all photo editing, I use Lightroom CC. I access this and few other Adobe services through Adobe Cloud.
- I use Canva.com to create my Pinterest pins as well as to design my logos.
Trip Planning Resources

Shop Now! I’ve used the one in San Fran and got to go to some museums that I never otherwise would have considered.
- Lonely Planet is my favourite for travel Ebooks. I just load them on my iPad and I am good to go for any trip. I’ve been relying on the Australia one a lot to find neat things to do.
- Trip Advisor is another site I rely on for travel bookings.
- Sky Scanner is my number one when it comes to finding flight deals.
- My other go-to for booking flights is Hopper.com. I love being able to see which dates are cheapest to fly.
- Intrepid Travel was who I booked my Egypt trip through. And to date, it is the best tour I have ever been on. The groups are small, which makes for a more intimate experience. Our guide was AMAZING. I cannot say enough good about him. I want to go back on an Intrepid Tour just to request Mohammed again. If I can rally and save up enough, I want to go to Antartica for my 30th birthday. I plan on using Intrepid again. But, my 30th birthday is rapidly approaching and Australia is rapidly eating my funds.
- Of course, for travel insurance I always go with World Nomads. Get a quote today.
- I always bring a re-usable, insulated water bottle with me. I’ve been actively trying to reduce my single use plastics.
- I am an avid walker and will walk anywhere that I can over driving. So, I always travel with solid walking shoes. Good quality shoes are one of the few clothing articles that I consider worth it to spend a lot of money.
- I recently bought a Kathmandu rain jacket and it has been the best rain coat I’ve ever owned.
- Dock & Bay makes the best microfibre beach towel that I have ever owned. The sand falls off of it and its huge!
- An Universal International Travel Power Adapter is a must for overseas travel. I prefer to shop for ones that have usb slots like this one does.
- My Osprey Packs Farpoint 70 backpack has seen me through many trip these last few years. I love the detachable backpack because it’s the perfect size for day trips.
- Camelbak offers great products such as water bottles and my hiking day bag. It has a built in water bag making it deal for long walks. Shop now

- Awin is a partner of Shareasale and they have even more resources to help you start your blog.
- Etsy offers logos, themes, and cute gifts for every new blogger.
- Blue Host is who I host my websites through. They provided me with great customer support throughout my blog name changes and my initial set up questions.
- Skillshare is where I’m learning Spanish. Plus, other miscellaneous things like web design and logos.
- Convertkit is great for newsletters. While they do cost, they offer great ways of dividing up mailing lists. I’ve also been making use of their tag features.
- My social media links are brought to you by Social Warfare. I like to use Social Warfare because I can customize the button colours to match my brand.
- Lately, I’ve been using Tailwind to help me schedule my own pins and to find new tribes to share them in.
