Travel Resources

Accommodation

I mainly use Booking.com to book all of my accommodation. I usually stay in hotels, even when I travel solo. I like the way you can filter results by facilities, order results by lowest price first, use the map feature to see where they are located. Many properties have free cancellation, even if you pay in advance, as long as you cancel by a certain point, you get a full refund no questions asked.

Insurance

I live in the UK and I usually purchase annual travel insurance plans. I either use AXA or Insure and Go. While living in the US, I used individual trip plans from Allianz.

Flights

I usually search for all of my flights via www.google.com/flights. I then book with the airline direct.

Transfer money abroad

Wise (previously Transferwise) is great for sending money abroad. As an expat, I used it multiple times to transfer money between the US and the UK.

Photography Resources

Along with my iPhone 2020 SE, I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80EB-S superzoom compact camera with Sandisk Extreme memory cards.

I also have a DJI Spark drone, however due to changing regulations and restrictions, I don’t fly it as often anymore!

Online Tutoring Resources

I use a 2020 MacBook Air and an iPad.

I tutor on Cambly Kids. So far I’ve had a lot of success with the platform and I love working for them!

My 120hr TEFL certification was through the International Open Academy.

Lifestyle Brands I love

I love my Kindle Paperwhite. I read a lot of ebooks, many of which are free or very cheap (99p). They have World Book Day promotions where you can download a heap of free books that have been translated from a foreign language into English. You can find my books below:

Between England & Iowa: A Year In The Life Of An Emigrating Wife

Between England & Iowa: My Guide To The USA CR1 Spouse Visa Process & The Journey To A 10yr Green Card

Dealing With Stress Related Hair Loss: My Story

I’m obsessed with my Fitbit Inspire HR. It also has a heart rate monitor and it’s waterproof! It also has a meditation breathing exercise on it which is quite a nice addition.

Pura Vida Bracelets are so bright and colourful and very hard wearing. I’ve been wearing them permanently for YEARS (not even joking, once they are on my arm, I never take them off). You can get 20% off your order using my discount code KYLIENEUHAUS20
