HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS

  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.

 

 

  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
Here are my thoughts:

Native Shoes are excellent for travel. They are pretty stylish considering how lightweight they are. In Asia, I saw many travellers lose flip-flops when getting on and off boats. When I was in Asia I had a pair of the of Jefferson model which I wore in and around water. They are non-slip and very comfortable. It helps that they look like sneakers too. I’m a sneakerhead!

My favourite shoes by Native have to be the Jimmy boots. They were awesome when I was exploring around the Scottish Highlands and when it was wet out. I threw on a pair of warm wool socks and they were perfect shoes for walking around in the leaves and mud. Not only are they great for rain or shine, but they also weigh next to nothing and can squish down easily in my bag. I have also worn them in Whistler during the winter. I just made sure to pair them with heavy duty socks by Wig Wam for low temperatures.

If you haven’t heard of Native and are looking for a shoe that is multi-purpose, they are perfect for your future travels.
