Essential Accessories and Gadgets for Nomad Travellers

Nomad travellers are used to being on the road most of the time. The concept of a nomadic traveller says it out – a person who travels from place to place rather than living in one place all the time.

And if you have this exciting and hectic life, you must be organised to make things work smoothly. It is when the so-called travel gadgets always help make your journey a little easier, no matter where or how you go.

There are thousands of travel accessories and electronic gadgets available on the market. From favourites to practical ones, here are the essential accessories and gadgets for Nomadic Travellers.

Flexible Comfortable Shoes

That’s probably a quite redundant thing to say, choosing flexible comfortable shoes is a fundamental part of planning your travel journey. Experienced travellers will agree on this matter.

For this reason, you should always pick waterproof shoes that will be your best match for discovering new destinations any time of the year.

Loom footwear provides ultra-comfortable and 100% waterproof shoes that help you to explore cities or hike through mountains with some style. Its sleek and modern style make it also a great pick for going out as well.

If you need to travel light, they are also great for packing, fitting in small spaces. Its sleek and modern design is also a perfect match for going out or having a business wherever you may be when travelling.

Not to mention that if you are looking for a sustainable and cruelty-free pair of shoes, these are 100% vegan.

Bluetooth Speaker

I am not the kind of person that likes to listen to music without wearing headphones. But a Bluetooth speaker goes perfectly when we are relaxing in our accommodation in the evenings.

The truth is that any music fan knows how important sound quality is. And the wave of portable Bluetooth speakers available on the market has brought a real revolution in the way you listen to music, podcasts, and audiobooks. When it comes to travel when working, the right Bluetooth speaker is fundamental.

Reusable Bottle

While it’s not a travel-only accessory, a reusable water bottle is what I use a lot on my most recent trip.

Undoubtedly, it is a very worthwhile item. With its airtight lid, the bottle keeps the temperature cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. In addition, you can customise your bottle by writing your name on it or use other recycled materials to make it eco-friendlier.

Lighter Clothes

Being a digital nomad implies knowing how to adapt to the less is more philosophy. The truth is that you will never need to pack all your closet.

Make sure you bring essentials like pairs of jeans, t-shirts, and underwear you’ll need for the week; if you plan to visit a place with low temperatures, don’t forget to have a warmer jacket that can also be a key piece of clothing in the colder days.

Choosing the right outfit when travelling with a backpack is very important. Make sure that you choose your attire according to the region you’re going to.

Of course, your laptop is a great tool to work as a digital nomad. But don’t forget that you can also have a computer that can be repaired anywhere in the world.

Meaning, that the popular brand that you (not me) worship, does not have stores in many of the most popular destinations.

For a freelance traveller or for a new digital nomad, a netbook is a good option. But choose popular brands that won’t let you down when you need them. My HP has survived many long-haul flights. It’s a total trooper.

You can also try travelling with a combination of tablet and Android keyboards. Despite being light, the tablets with the keyboard are a little slower to work.

Portable External Hard Driver

An external hard disk is a data storage system that connects to the main device (desktop computer, laptop, tablet, etc.) to store information if a fundamental tool for a nomadic traveller.

However, hard disks are more expensive because they have more storage capacity.

Consider acquiring one if you are a content creator, audio-visual producer, digital marketer, webmaster, or computer engineer among other professionals and occupations where the information or the material you store.
