Our favorite tool for exploring a city is Google My Maps. It’s incredibly useful for saving places to see grouped by different categories with your own custom descriptions. While we’re researching our next destination we start a new map for that city. As we go along we add more places we like including restaurants, landmarks, hidden gems, cheap eats, cool bars, and places to work to name a few.
You can save our map to your google drive and pull it up on your phone. Click Here for instructions on how to use the maps.

What’s in our bags? Everyone’s gear set-up is a bit different and unique to their needs and styles. What we do know that is universal: Less is more.

Here are some essential items we can’t live without. Check out this article for more details about what’s in our bags.
