Accommodations

Booking.com– Great site that includes vacation rentals, hotels, and B&Bs. Sign up for an account so you receive amazing discounts.

Expedia– Great for when booking.com doesn’t have what you want.

Trivago– A good comparison website for hotels, similar to Expedia but usually cheaper.

VRBO– Good for home away from home accommodation like having a kitchen and cheaper than hotels for long term travel.

Travel Gear I Love

BagSmart Compression Packing Cubes– I love the versatility of these packing cubes. The compression feature helps pack more clothes, plus they’re waterproof. The set of 6 also comes with a two-sided drawstring bag.

Handheld Portable Mini Fan– If you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors at festivals or attractions, this mini fan helps you stay cool. With an entire day’s worth of battery power on each charge, it’s a must-have. Bonus that it folds into a compact tube to take up less space in your bag.

S’well Water Bottle– When you need your water to stay cold like we often need in Florida, this is the best reusable bottle to use. I often take both of mine with me on a hiking day because nothing tastes better than cold water on a hot Florida day.

Waterfly Hiking Sling Daypack– This is the pack I use when I want to take my DSLR hiking. I can fit a water bottle, phone (in the strap pocket), camera with a lens or two, and small bottles of sunscreen and insect repellant. Lightweight and comfortable.
