One of the reasons I started this blog was to share my travel successes and failures with others. If I learn something the hard way, I love to be able to share information that may help someone else avoid it. That being said, it’s been hilariously fun to write out some of the worst mistakes I’ve made when it comes to travel. Not a “how to” post or anything (unless you want to call it a “how to fail”). Just a “let’s laugh at my expense” sort of post. And if you’ve made some major travel blunders, don’t worry, you are not alone!
Back in 2015, I posted that two of my favorite accommodating-booking sites were Airbnb and Booking.com. I still use both of these regularly, and in particular, I still love Booking.com for hotels and bnbs. And no, I’m not being paid to say this, I just really like their website for a number of reasons. I mean, they should pay me, because I’m constantly promoting them!
If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I’m big on traveling light. I like items that are versatile and compact and make my life easier. That’s why I was excited when I was approached by jimmyCASE about reviewing one of their products. I made the decision when I started blogging to only endorse products or services that I have personally used and find helpful. I have been contacted by many companies wanting to advertise on this blog and my response is pretty simple: if I’ve used it and I like it, I’ll share with others! jimmyCASE was confident I would like their product. And they were right.
There are always things I forget. I don’t mean to, but when there are so many details of the trip to remember, you’re bound to forget something. There are some things that you can forget that aren’t that big of a deal (like a toothbrush). There are some things, however, you’ll want to double-check.
