On the following pages, I’ve put together all of the information I wish I had when I was planning various trips. The reviews and comments that I make are all based on personal experience – I would never recommend something or write about it without having first experienced it myself. If you have any comments, as always please feel free to e-mail me at frugalwanderer [at] gmail [dot] com.


One of the biggest expenses a traveller faces is accommodation. Here, I will list all of the different places I’ve stayed, review my favourite spots, and fill you in on the websites where you will get the most bang for your buck.

Gear Review

Based on experience from years of hiking, camping, climbing, and travelling, I will review many different types of gear you need for travel. From carry-on packs to iPhone apps, my hope is to cover it all.


I will review different airline websites, options for getting from one city to another, and what you can expect when traveling.

FrugalWanderer Spreadsheets & Checklists [in progress]

You will have access to all of the tools that I have used and perfected over the years to create everything from a monthly budget for everyday life, to a travel budget (overall & individual trips), a gear list, and much more. Stay tuned!
