When I stumbled across The Budget-Minded Traveler, I immediately knew I’d struck gold. She writes perfectly in-depth posts about traveling accessories (suitcases, backpacks, scarves with passport pockets) and traveling tips (visas, cell phone usage, packing inspirations). Her blog archive is a wonderful place to start, with a tag cloud to help you find a subject you are especially interested in and a list of her most recent posts.
My favorite post so far (I’m still happily exploring her site) is her Ninja Packing Tips: Packing List for Europe With Just a 30L Packback. She includes a lot of pictures and incredibly specific suggestions about what items to take with you and which to leave at home. It was very inspirational, and I want to make my packing increasingly compact.
Once you get a chance to look at The Budget-Minded Traveler, share your favorite posts in the comments! I’d love to check them out.
