How to keep your money safe while traveling

Category: Travel Manual Last Updated: Sunday, 27 November 2016

First of all you have to check with your bank if they support payment outside your country. Nowadays every bank should support this payment, but better be sure of it. Also, you need to check the taxes and fees that apply when paying or when withdrawing money from ATM's in other countries. Make sure they will not try to rub you with this one. Usually you don't have to pay any extra tax when paying with the card for different services. However, there is a small tax and % taken from the card when withdrawing money from ATM's outside your country.

Of course, for some of us, there are some chipper alternatives, like banks that won't charge anything for using their cards anywhere in Europe and/or the USA. For this, check out this article, you will learn about some of them: https://medium.com/nomad-gate/the-world-s-best-bank-accounts-for-international-travelers-and-nomads-3257e6839cff#.c1n4jug9l

How to (not) use Booking.com and why

Category: Travel Manual Last Updated: Monday, 19 September 2016

I presume you all know what Booking.com  is. It gathers a lot of hostels and hotels from around the world in one place - this is the main thing that it does. This service is grate for many things and makes our lives a lot easier. But it has one big flaw: it is 'the man in the middle'.

What I mean is that it doesn't own the services and you don't pay directly there. You have to pay at the property.

Category: Travel Manual Last Updated: Monday, 17 October 2016

 

There are so many things to say about this. But I want to say that this article is not for the experienced ones out there. This article is written for the younger me. For me when I started to drive. There were so many things that I didn't know back than. And I am thinking maybe will help others also.

How to get safely from A to B - preparing yourself and the bike before the ride

Category: Travel Manual Last Updated: Wednesday, 03 August 2016

Image source

 

Today I will talk about being prepared to ride and knowing your bike.

Remember: driving 2 wheels never was, is not and never will be like driving 4 wheels. This is why we choose it. But because of this we need to be ready and the bike needs to be ready when we decide to take a ride.

If you are planning to take a ride - it doesn't matter if it is going to be around the town or for a long ride you need to prepare yourself first.

Find a host on Couchsurfing

Category: Travel Manual Last Updated: Sunday, 04 December 2016

This article is written for the new couchsurfersCouchsurfing.com helped me stay here and there without paying for accommodation. Don't expect to find a host very easy. Keep trying and always have a plan B.

"Couchsurfing.com has changed". 'Old' couch surfers are complaining that the platform has changed and now it is used for different things and the people using it are not what they used to be. Somehow it has become more popular and it has lost its beauty but people still continue using it for finding a couch, meeting others or having fun.

If you want to start using it you need to invest some time in the platform. I'll try to point out some things you need to consider before trying to send a request.
