To Book my Accommodation
I love house sitting! First of all, it allows me to stay in a whole apartment or house for free, which is amazing. Second, for me it’s terrible disadvantage of being a nomad to not have a pet. That’s why house sitting for me is just perfect!
TripAdvisor is a great platform for reviews and for bookings! Try it next time you have to book your accommodation!
Do you love the atmosphere in hostels? I totally know what you mean… Then go directly to Hostelworld and book your bed or private room there!
What do I Pack?
Do you want to know what’s in my backpack? No problem! I wrote a blog post about it – including a video, in which I show you how I put all my travel gear in my two backpacks.
I take my photos with a Sony Alpha 6500*. It is small and light, so it is ideal for traveling. I love the touch screen and the possibility to transfer my photos on the spot with Wi-Fi. It’s the ideal solution for me. Alternatively, I actually sometimes take photos with my mobile phone. Since I got the iPhone 11 Pro*, it’s a good solution for not having to carry the camera around all the time.
I usually switch between my two favorite lenses: a 10-18mm wide-angle lens* and a 30mm fixed focal length*. I’d say that on my blog, 90 percent of the photos are taken with the wide-angle lens. To complete the family, I have ordered a 16mm fixed focal length*, which I still have to try out, but will certainly use a lot.
I then usually edit the photos in Adobe Lightroom. The fastest and easiest way to do this is with the app on my mobile phone. From there I can upload the edited photos to my social media channels. You can do the editing on the computer, of course, but I find it more convenient on my mobile phone.
In the beginning of my life as a nomad I had a normal travel insurance like this one: World Nomads*. It’s perfect if you’re traveling long-term and you can even make the contract while on the road (which is not always possible).
But I wanted an insurance that covers the whole world, including my home country! So I switched to an international insurance that allows me to move wherever I want whenever I want. I don’t need to tell them where I’m going and when I want to be at home. If I want to fly to Germany to see my family the next day, I can do it without any problem. That was important to me.
