Like many of you, I love ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft! Not only is the entire experience better than taking a cab but Uber and Lyft are usually 40% cheaper than taxis!

What Is A Travel Daypack? A travel daypack is a smaller secondary bag that you travel with. This is in addition to your main bag or suitcase.

DIY Norway In A Nutshell Tour - BOOK IT YOURSELF & SAVE

POST UPDATE Sept 9, 2017: I originally wrote this article in May 2015 and then actually went on the DIY: Norway In A Nutshell trip in July 2015 and it was amazing.
