Useful Links

We’ll keep adding in websites and links that we find useful in our travel planning.

When we meet people, and tell them our story, they often ask about the various wildlife and conservation volunteering experiences we’ve had. All the links are on the relevant post pages, you can also do a search in the side column search box. I’ve started making a list here, and will keep adding to it, so do continue to check back if you’re interested in conservation volunteering.

Not travel planning, but a cautionary tale: backup your data now!

Travel Planning:

We’ve recently done a lot of traveling in SE Asia, and have found a huge number of articles and resources at Travelfish. Great free website, check it out!

Stuart also offers a travel planning service for SE Asia, if you’re completely stuck!

Train travel is terrific, and The Man in Seat 61 knows everything about it! A huge amount of information here.

We love housesitting. There are several websites out there, this is the one we use: Trusted Housesitters.

Have you heard about repositioning cruises?

Don’t forget to sign up for our travel newsletter, and find out what we think of the places we go to! We promise we will never spam you and never sell your email!
