Gear and electronics
As a long-time traveller and travel blogger, I rely on a few pieces of gear that I recommend for anyone hitting the road, and especially for those travelling long-term and carrying electronics. Number one is my Belkin Mini Travel Surge Protector. You can buy it here from Amazon: Belkin 3-Outlet SurgePlus Mini Travel Swivel Charger Surge Protector with Dual USB Ports (2.1 AMP / 10 Watt), BST300.
I would NOT plug my expensive MacBook Pro into a wall socket in India (or just about anywhere else) without it. And you shouldn’t either!
For India Travellers
India Someday provides a helping hand to those who want to travel independently, but would like some assistance with planning and turning their dream trip to India into reality. What I like about them is they are very transparent about pricing, and have no hidden costs. They offer highly personalized service, based on your preferred style of travel, and give you just the help you need. They have a lot of experience and expertise to make sure you don’t waste a single moment trying to navigate the vast expanse of India. Plus, they are always available if you need help. They really are like having a local friend. I travelled with India Someday through Rajasthan, and had an amazing trip – that was also amazingly smooth. Based on my experience, I recommend this company without hesitation. They specialize in working with solo foreign travellers to India, and those who want to travel independently.

I’ve successfully used Airbnb to stay in some of the poshest areas in New York, London, Delhi and Mumbai — for a fraction of the price of a hotel. My advice is to read the reviews very carefully — they tell the truth about a place and reveal details that you might otherwise miss. Also, contact the host ahead of time and introduce yourself. Start a conversation to see if they’re friendly and open, and if they fit your style and personality. I thought I had found the perfect place in London until I chatted with the host.
