Whenever I go on a trip, I always carry a lot of tech gadgets minus my MacBook Pro of course. As a blogger, I like to have variety with what I'm shooting and that means carrying more gadgets than normal.
This list is a compilation of the top 5 tech gadgets for travelers and where to get them to fit your budget.
The GoPro would be my number one suggestion for all you travelers out there who seek out adventurous activities. I have taken my GoPro sledding in Switzerland and swimming in the Mediterranean. It is one of my favorite tech gadgets that I own. Not only does it take amazing videos but it also captures pretty amazing pictures as well. The GoPro is something that you invest in, however, and isn't something that comes cheaply. It also has a lot of accessories so you can build your collection over the years - don't feel like you have to purchase all the accessories at once because that would be expensive. I have several accessories but I'm always looking for more!
2. Attachable Camera Lens for Mobile Phones
I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6S and love the pictures that it takes so much. However, sometimes it doesn't get the whole picture OR a selfie doesn't fit everyone in it which is why I decided to purchase an attachable lens. I absolutely love it and even if you don't have an iPhone, the clip will fit on my most phones so don't worry about that. It takes really good photos and has allowed me to capture more of the sceneries that I visit without cropping some out.
3. Portable Charger
Whenever I would go on trips, before I upgraded my phone, my iPhone 5c would die ALL the time. It's just something that happens when you've had your phone for a while and the battery is a little run down. However, if you aren't able to upgrade your phone immediately before a trip, I suggest getting a portable charger for your phone (or a few) and always keep them charged for when you are out and about. These are a lifesaver when you don't know when you will be heading back to your hotel room or when you will get to charge your phone again.
A tripod is something that I'm currently looking to invest in. I've seen fellow travelers use it for their solo pictures and it's super helpful. So, if you are a solo-traveler and have a hard time finding people to take your pictures then this adjustable tripod might do the trick!
If you are traveling to different countries, other than your home country, you will need a converter. This allows you to charge your products in the country you are visiting. Luckily, with iPhones, you can plug them directly into the converter (which you may be able to do with Android, I'm not sure though). Either way, traveling without a converter isn't an option and the one I've listed is decently priced with the USB plug in as an option which is always great!
