10 of our favourite travel gadgets

GWhat would our world be without all those smart and helpful modern-day gadgets?? Well we sure cannot imagine our life without our daily dose of gadgets.

Although sometimes we do get sick of them and decide to shun it from our lives, it still is an integral part of us as it has made our lives so much better. For travellers, gadgets play a vital role in connecting with our loved ones no matter where we are, capturing and sharing all our memories, pursuing other hobbies and so on. A lot of times we tend to consider these items too trivial to actually add them to our packing list, hence making a blunder of leaving them behind. So to make it easier for you guys to remember, here are a list of 10 gadgets that one must carry while travelling:

1. A good smart phone

We are pretty sure this is one item no one is going to forget before leaving their homes. Nevertheless, always do have an easy to carry, well working smartphone that has a good camera, 4G/3G service and navigation features. Also do not forget to download some very useful travel apps that will not only help organize your holidays but also reduces the hassle of carrying any other gadgets πŸ˜‰

2. GoPro Hero 4

GoPro Hero 4 is one of our latest acquisition and we are totally hooked to it. With its HD photo and video recording, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and user-friendly touch screen this is the must have a gadget for all the adventure lovers out there. Attach it to the one of the many accessories and mounts like head and chest mounts, you can easily capture all the thrilling activities be it bungee jumping, scuba diving, skiing etc.

3. Camera

A decent camera with all the latest features available is a must have if you want to capture high quality pictures. With so many new products being made available in the market, you might possibly have your head reeling and hence we would suggest you to do your research well before investing on a good camera. As of now our favorites are the Nikon D5200, Canon EOS 1200D among the SLRs and Fujifilm X100T in digital camera list.

4. Selfie stick and Tripod

Want to click a picture of yourself standing infront of your favourite monument or just want to pout and make silly faces with your girlfriends without having to stretch your arms like some elastic man/woman? Well, a selfie stick that is compatible with your smartphone or GoPro is the gadget you need to have with you to capture all your fun moments. Incase you want to take it a notch higher and wish to capture full shots of yourselves or click images under low light or in slow shutter speed one has to have a tripod along with them.

5. Hard disk/ SD card

If you have the habit of clicking every single moment of your trip and then end up consuming all the space in your memory card, do carry a spare set of SD card. We always carry our WD My Passport Ultra Hard Disk along with us so that we can keep all our images as a backup in them.

6. Portable power bank

Using smartphones continuously with several apps running drains away the battery very quickly. As we belong to the group of people who cannot live without their cellphones, we always make sure we have our Asus ZenPower Bank along with us. It is not only compact in size but also very lightweight and with a capacity of 10000mAh it can easily charge your phone atleast 3 times when the power bank is fully charged.

7. Laptop

For all those travellers who find it hard to stay away from their laptops especially when you are travelling for long duration, do invest in a good lightweight, compact laptop. Over the years, we have constantly tried and tested various laptop brands, finally settling down with MacBook Air as it is not only light in weight and fits in easily in most of our carry on handbags but also ticks off all over requirements.

8. Ipad

On long flight or train journeys, we prefer to keep ourselves occupied by watching movies, reading or catching up on our work. Having an IPad along with you is also a life savior if there is no good movie listed in inflight entertainment

9. International plug adaptor

One of the least remembered item by almost everyone while travelling is the travel adaptor. This has to be one of the most essential travel accessories to pack as you will sometimes find it difficult to charge your electronic devices if the plug types are different. Also you will end up spending unnecessary money on an adaptor every time. Hence to avoid all the hassles always have a universal plug adaptor that can easily be used to various countries.

10. Noise cancelling Headphones

Lastly, do carry a good pair of noise cancelling headphones to listen to your favourite music and also to shut the external noises so that you can doze off happily without disturbances.

Well, these are the 10 gadgets we always carry along with us while travelling; do leave a comment below to let us know your choice of must have travelgadgets. πŸ™‚

      Oh, you must invest in a selfie stick πŸ˜‰ It is easiest option to capture yourself while travelling solo.

    I literally just bought noise cancelling headphones and I CANNOT wait to try them out! I also would recommend an eye mask – I bought one about a year ago and it is one of my favourite things while travelling. Thanks for the tips!

    A great list. I’ve got all of them covered, except I lost a GoPro while cliff jumping in Chiang Mai and I don’t have noise cancelling headphones. Need to get me both of those things asap.

    The iPad and Laptop (Macbook Pro) though really weigh down my back bag.

      Your welcome Natasha :). We would suggest you to invest in a GoPro if you are a adventure traveller. Nothing like capturing all the exciting any thrilling moments of your travel.

  10. April 28, 2016    

    I’ve been typing with a go-pro for awhile now as I don’t have a camera that can be used anywhere near water! Perhaps its time to splurge and go for it!

      Tripods are best used to capture slow shutter speed images. Hope you enjoy your new toy πŸ™‚

  12. April 28, 2016    

    I really need to get my hands on a noise canceling headphone and earplugs. Sometimes you need to tune people and other things around you out. Thanks for sharing your list!

    Noise cancelling headphones – need to get on that for my next flight. I seem to always be seated close to families as I like sitting near the exit. πŸ™‚

    Have been hearing so much about GoPro Hero 4 . You have mentioned about taking photos as well with this. Does it take still pics also?
    Also, I am planning a hiking trip, will it make sense to buys one for that?

    • 2travellingsisters 2travellingsisters
      April 30, 2016    

      Yes, it would be great choice for hiking trip. Do buy one of the accessories for easier access of the camera. And yes it does take still pics.

  18. April 30, 2016    

    Are you using the head and chest gear for gopro hero4? I have been contemplating if I should buy one because 1. I’m not really very active and will just use it most probably while swimming on the beach and 2. I think I would look silly with it. Lol.

    • 2travellingsisters 2travellingsisters
      May 23, 2016    

      No Noemi, at present are just using the stick! But planning to buy head and chest gear soon…:)

    Great list! My laptop and portable power bank are a must!

  • Its hard to believe that this magnificent Aqueduct in Segovia was built around 1st century to supply water from the Fuentes Africa river to the city. This was functioning until mid 19th century and has been maintained in an excellent condition and was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the old town in 1985. #TOTSinSpain #segovia #spain #traveldiaries #travelingram #traveladdict #wanderlust #travelblog #igworldclub #IGtravel  #mytravelgram #travelblogger #travelgram #Aroundtheworld #passionpassport #exploringtheglobe  #mytravelgram  #wanderlust #worlderlust #mytinyatlas #welltravelled #travelphotography #traveltheworld #bestplacestogo #instapassport #theglobewanderer #discoverearth #roamtheplanet
