For even the most intrepid travelers, the big question of what to take and what to leave behind can be a daunting one. Should you bring that big camera or can you get it done with just a smartphone? How about the pair of high heels and dress that you’d love to wear on your night out with your beau in Bangkok? And if you’re one who needs a lot of things, how do you pack it all in a small suitcase or backpack? Check out the following blogs and learn about valuable gadgets and “hacks” that’ll make your trip a smoother affair.
One glance at Monica’s blog and you’ll rightly assume that she has been nearly everywhere in the world. Her clever takes on how to make the most of travel without the hassle are rewarding, and compiled into informative posts such as “5 Tips to Survive Songkran” – a popular festival in Thailand – and “What women should pack when travelling to India”. Her blog is refreshingly personalized, even documenting her pregnancy and birth of her baby boy last week!
