We have a few favorite websites that have helped us with our travel plans.
Kayak – generally, start looking for your airfare here. Sometimes kayak won’t list flights on low-cost carriers.
Momondo – Along with Kayak, Momondo will usually find the best options for any trip.
Google Flights – Good for some of the more obscure destinations.
and some advice: visit our destination airport’s departures/arrivals board. Often this will show you discount airlines that don’t appear elsewhere.
airfarewatchdog.com – annoyingly daily, but if you have a flexible schedule, this enewsletter is beyond worth it. I’ve subscribed to dozens of email airfare bargain newsletters; they’re all terrible. Except this one. We’ve booked a handful of flights thru airfarewatchdog, with many more to come.
Nomadic Matt – I had been reading Matt’s travel tips for quite some time, and then realized that I knew him. His tips are great, especially for those who are just beginning to travel.
Spanish with Laura – Online Spanish lessons via Skype, Laura also offers in-person lessons in Queretaro, Mexico. She’s an amazing teacher, witty, personable, and makes learning Spanish FUN!!
Images Etc. – The photography website of our travel companions and good friends, Tony and Erika Craddock. They’re well-known in their field for a good reason, they are both exceptional photographers. Watching them work is a bonus of traveling with them.
More Photos and Images from Tony Craddock at Fine Art America – Tony Craddock’s photos and images, which you can purchase in different forms (on coffee mugs, postcards, etc.)
