Universal Plug Adaptor

Travelling to Brazil every year via different airports has thought me that a universal plug adaptor is the best investment you can make. I used to carry a bag od several types of adaptors before, just to guarantee that my computer and smartphone will be charged when needed.

I have chosen an all-in-one model that has 2 Dual USB ports and sockets for UK/US/Australia/Euro and it also works well in Brazil and several worldwide destinations.

A DSLR camera is always the best deal for beginners because it’s easy to use and it’s also more durable. On the contrary some people may think; those cameras are becoming more affordable. Most of them have WI-FI connectivity and a good battery life too.

 Mobile Wi-Fi

Here’s something that I am considering adding to my travel gadget checklist. A mobile WI-FI device would be the best choice for those travelling abroad with more frequency; especially when you have long hour connections.

My last trip to Brazil had a 4-hour connection at the airport of Frankfurt.

The internet was so slow at my terminal, that was impossible to have a simple browse on social media. These gadgets offer 4G/3G connection and it can be used in several appliances at the same time for up to 10 hours. It’s definitely worth it.

Free Sand Towel

It seems the silliest item to carry on trips, but the truth is that a free sand towel can be one of the most versatile tools on your luggage.

This revolutionary accessory can be used not only on the beach but can be a good spreading out picnic towel, yoga mat, for example. I have taken my free sand towel even in long walking when just need to take a break for a quick snack. If it’s raining, the technology ultra-absorbent guarantees a dryer spot to sit down and enjoy your trip.

Bluetooth Speaker

I have to confess that it’s the essential accessory when I travel with my husband. We do like our music playlists and we take it wherever we go. The USB charger makes it also a good deal. Some models can be waterproof.
