Minimalist Travel Resources

Minimalist Travel
Have Stick, will travel

One of the things that selling all our stuff allowed us to do was to travel. While we first sold all our stuff to move abroad, we then decided to travel some more. And because we live life with less stuff, we’ve become quite adept at minimalist travel.

Here you’ll find tips, books, blogs, and bargains all related to our minimalist travel life. Lightening your load doesn’t mean you have to lighten up on fun and enjoyable experiences.

In addition to these top-notch, state-of-the-art, information-packed, dash-filled minimalist travel resources, we also like to tell the world about our travels, so check out our travel related blog posts (may or may not contain dashes).

Wondering how we fund our minimalist travelling ways?  Check out our eBook: Sell All Your Stuff and Travel for some great advice (and free access to numerous spreadsheets, checklists and of course my quirky sense of humor)!

Need some more minimalist travel resources that fall under the $5 gift maximum spend? We use some of these affiliates below to help us find house sits or affordable accommodations. Oh, and if you’re travelling in the USA, we HIGHLY recommend some form of insurance like World Nomads.

airbnbAirBnB is a great alternative to hotel stays. And here's some savings - $20 off your stay at Airbnb! If you don't know what AirBnB is, it's basically someone renting out their home (usually a condo) or a room in their home - hence the "bnb" portion of the name.

We recently made the switch to Siteground and are happy we did. Our previous host had server uptime issues, slow load times, poor support response time, and just a lack of honesty and integrity. After the switch to SiteGround that problem went away. Our previous host didn't own the problem, which made the problem worse! Lesson = own the problem.
