Money, visas and physical fitness aren’t enough for a good trip. In the modern era, travel gadgets are a must too!
Here is a list of some must have travel gadgets:
1. Travel Pillow:
This is one of the must have things whether you’re traveling on a bus, train or a plane. Pillows provided by airlines are very thin and slippery. It’s really hard to set one in the right position. And you don’t even begin relaxing when it slips down and the struggle starts anew. Best thing to do is bring your own travel pillow. Since it goes around your neck, it will never fall off. Plus you can rest your neck comfortably on either side. Now you can spend more than half the journey taking a pleasant nap. Even if you wish to spend your entire journey watching movies, you won’t get any neck cramps!
2. Leg Hammock:
This ingenious invention will be a lifesaver! Once you use it, you’ll never want to travel without it! It attaches to the tray table and hangs low. With the comfortable inflatable pillows inside, your legs and feet will be elevated, improving blood circulation and even allowing you to sleep on your side! You can recline your seat, rest your head on your travel pillow and place your legs in the hammock. We promise you’ll be more comfortable sitting in your economy seat than you will be sitting in business class. No need to waste money on a business class ticket anymore!
3. Universal (all-in-one) Plug Adapter:
Carrying around so many chargers is hard enough but then carrying an adapter for each one is worse. International travel requires some extra care of your electronic gadgets. You have to make sure you have a matching adapter for each device so that it gets the correct voltage. There’s nothing worse than plugging your phone charger directly in a 220V switch and then seeing your device blow up. However, the good new is that one universal adapter will work with all different chargers!
4. Noise-Cancelling Headphones:
Whether it’s the baby in the next row crying his ears out or the couple in your neighboring hotel room having a yelling match, this gadget will save your ears (and sanity!) each time. Noise-cancelling headphones will block out the world around you so you can listen to some soothing music or just sweet silence! Trust me, when you’re stuck in a traffic jam in a third world country and your bus driver won’t stop honking, you’ll be grateful you had these! It’s also a great signal to say you’re not in the mood to socialize.
5. Protection Case For Your Smartphone:
Since you’ll be using your phone a lot for navigation, it’s best to get a protection case. It’s hard to keep your phone in your hand when you have so much luggage to carry. You’ll be dropping your phone a lot so better get a shock-proof case! These days, waterproof and dustproof cases are available as well.
Travel gadgets can make your trip a lot easier and comfortable. Here is a list of gadgets you should buy for your next trip.
