Descriptions

Savvy in computing as well as travel, Aaron is just as comfortable backing across South East Asia and the Far East as he is taking frequent amorous trips to northern Spain. Backpacker at heart, flashpacker by nature, this man knows exactly when to rough it and when to get pampered by two masseurs on the beach. He enjoys long motorbike journeys through the countryside and always keeps a keen eye out for new and exotic foods. Whether it’s just a spicy rat on a stick or a French banquet, Aaron is pretty much willing to give it all a try.

    Tips

    Definitely take a swiss-army (smart) phone with you. Sim cards are usually cheap and easy enough to find in most countries and GPS is pretty much invaluable.
    Forget lugging around books and diaries – just invest in a half-decent tablet or netbook and keep your literature digital. You’ll free up a good deal of space.
    Don’t worry too much about everything going to plan. Doing things last minute can lead to all sorts of memorable adventures, most of which usually turn out to be good!

      Anonymous52592: Which medium for GPS is most reliable abroad? Mobile phone, handheld Garmin type thing, watch, etc?
      (Admin) Aaron: Hi! In my opinion, bringing a dedicated GPS is usually unnecessary. You can find a variety of offline maps for free on the Google Play or Apple App Store. Personally, i use Google Maps 'download offline' function on my phone and it's been great. There are a few situations where the GPS won't work, for example in a city with many tall buildings, but this is an issue for all GPS devices. If you're bringing your phone anyway, save your money and travel light smile
