This page is always “work in progress”, as we add our best links and resources here.
Tools to simplify your life
- MurphyBedHQ.com: Another site we launched in 2013. An online resource about Murphy beds with building plans, inspiration and much more.
- Dropbox (free): Dropbox is just great. We use it almost everyday. For travellers like us it makes perfect sense to digitize all documents, pictures etc. and have access to it worldwide. Plus it´s easier to live in a small apartment without physical folders and albums.
- WorkFlowy (free): Another tool we use everyday. The #1 tool for organizing everything from work to shopping lists. Easy access everywhere and the joy of the worlds simplest interface.
- Focus Writer (free): A great tool for 100% distraction-free writing.
Outsource your work
- Elance: A great place to find talented workers (probably) at a much lower price than you can find locally. You’ll find everything from programmers and mobile developers to designers and writers.
- Virtual Staff Finder: If you’re more looking for a virtual assistant (VA) to do writing, transscribing, coding etc. VTF is a great company. You get to interview the VA yourself, and only pay a one-time fee to VSF to find the right person, and your new employee will be working at a professionel work environment at the VSF office in the Philipines.
- HomeAway: Great place to find a place to stay. Primarily for short-term travelling and vacations.
- Hostelworld: Great place to book hostels, budget hotels, guest houses etc. worldwide. Cheap alternative to hostels – great for backpackers.
- Booking.com: Find good deals on hotels. Depending on where you go we recommend booking the first couple of days in advance, and then find a better price locally when you are on location.
- Hotels.com: Booking.com´s younger twinbrother.
- Numbeo.com (free): Great site for comparing living expenses. Type in where you are from and your destination, and you will see all the price differences.
Online Entrepreneur Stuff

- Bluehost: The best place to buy domains and hosting. Cheap solution with Great service! 1-click WordPress installation. Get a discount off the regular price with this link.
- Shopify: The easiest and best looking webshop system – and it’s cheap too. I have created several shops with Shopify, and recommend them to everyone!

Check out our post about Shopify.
