Post Secret

For years now, I have been following the Post Secret blog, started by Frank Warren in 2005. An ingenious idea, the blog is a collection of real secrets mailed anonymously by real people. Whoever you are, whatever it is that you are hiding, Post Secret ensures that you are not alone. The world is stranger than we think, and somewhere in it, we all find a place to belong. 

One of my favorite songs, Dirty Little Secret, by The All American Rejects, is based on Post Secret:


I’ve tried a lot of websites, services and apps over 8 years of travelling. There are my favorites:


Travel insurance

  • World Nomads: Safe for trips abroad, adventure holidays and high risk destinations.

Flights / Public transport

Packing essentials

Be a responsible traveller

See what else I carry in my bags


  • HappyCow: Maps vegan and vegetarian eats near you.
