Going on travel is probably one of the most exciting things you look forward to.
It’s that one activity that takes your mind off things and lets you have a well-deserved rest.
This one is a travel must-have; a need. And there are no excuses of not bringing your smartphone with you.Your phone can work many functions in your travel. You can use navigation apps to guide you around a new city. It can also be your camera if having a separate one is too much for you.
It can be your calculator to make sure you’re on the budget or your alarm clock for early morning getaways for those sunrise shots.
Bottomline is your smartphone could mean everything in your travel. Afterall, it became a ‘smart’ phone because it can do so many functions in one handy device.
What would travel be without capturing the beautiful scenes you witnessed?
Always bring a camera with you in every travel because you’ll never know what wonders you can see around.
You don’t necessarily need to bring a professional camera or the latest, most high-end models. You can go for DSLR or action cameras if you like. But sometimes, your phone is even enough!
But if you want to dive into travel photography, then look for a camera that you’re comfortable using and learn its settings and features so you can use it for any situation.
Also, don’t forget to bring any accessory that comes with it. Extra batteries, charge, lenses, flashes, memory cards, and a tripod. The list could go on but, of course, this varies on your photography needs.
Since you’ll be using your phone often throughout your trip, it’s best to be ready and have a backup plan with you.
Powerbanks may add a bit of weight to your bag when traveling around, but this is one gadget that could be a huge lifesaver.
Just imagine if you get lost, and you run out of battery! That could be a bugger.
- Hard drive
Bringing a hard disk with you may not be on top of your list, but this could be a vital gadget in your travel.
If you’re the type of person who takes lots of photos along the way, chances are, you’ll soon run out of memory.
Store your entire day’s pictures on a hard drive so you can free up some space for tomorrow and, at the same time, set them aside for some editing later.
Of course, it would be easier to access your hard drive and save your photos if you bring your laptop with you.
If you got some free time at the end of the day, you could start picking out which photos to keep and edit for later.
Other gadgets to consider:
Here are other devices that you might want to consider bringing with you, too.
- Underwater camera. Just in case you go on for a dive, it would be lovely to capture underwater photos since, for sure, your DSLR or smartphone couldn’t do that.
- Smartwatch. A smartwatch’s features can be a good backup for your smartphone so it won’t easily run out of battery.
- Pocket Wifi. This is best for countries that don’t have free wifi in most public places. Ask for your chosen accommodation if they provide one or can let you rent one. It helps you stay connected while on the go.
