Each of the items in the travel collection is made with merino wool and includes some nice touches that make them very useful for all types of trips.
It’s back to school time, but with everything still going on in the world, this means many will be attending school virtually. In addition, there are many who are still fortunate to be able to work from home and so I wanted to put together a few of the things that have made it easier and more comfortable for me to work from home over the past few months.
No matter where we go, one thing we know for sure is that we will be taking many pictures and videos along the way. And although we don't consider ourselves professional photographers by any means, it is an important part of the blog and Youtube channel so we always want to make sure we have some great gear that still allows us to travel with one bag. Below is a list of some of our favorite camera gear and accessories for use while traveling.
Ever since we started to travel more often we have always loved finding creative ways to display all of the different trips we have taken. Sometimes we had used the pin feature on iPhoto and at some point we had printed out a map that we put thumb tacks into to mark the countries we had visited. The World Scratch Off Map from GoGo Unique, however, has definitely become the easiest and nicest way to showcase the countries we have traveled to and it has become a point of inspiration for us to plan future trips in an effort to try to scratch off as much of the map as possible. Keep reading to learn more about our experience using the GoGo Unique Map (Note: I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review).
With Apple's adoption of the USB - C standard for it's newest laptops, it looks like this is the port of the future. As with any new technology, there is always an adjustment period for most people and it is difficult to have to go out and buy a bunch of new accessories to be able to do everything that you were already used to. As I have transitioned to using the 2017 Macbook Pro which only has USB - C ports, I have done a good amount of research on which adapters and cables would ease my transition into this interesting new world. At the moment, many companies are just starting to produce these cables and dongles, which means that there are a lot of low quality items on the market or they are just really expensive. However, after spending a great deal of time on Amazon I was able to find the following accessories which I thought were a good balance of price, quality, and features. Keep reading to see the USB - C accessories I use on a daily basis.
I absolutely love the iDOO V4.1 Bluetooth Headset! When I travel I currently use a pair of Wireless Beats Solo 2, but those can be bulky and honestly there's always a fear that such an expensive set of headphones can be lost, damaged, or stolen. So for my everyday movement I always carry a pair of the iDOO headsets. During my search for an affordable pair of bluetooth headphones (especially after I got an iPhone 7, RIP headphone jack), I tried many many pairs of headphones under $30. There were a few options that were ok, but there were always too many trade-offs to really be able to ditch my Beats or wired headphones completely. Finally after weeks of searching I found these Powerbeats- imitating headphones on Amazon that seemed to really hit the sweet spot on price, performance, and look. Read on to see why I loved these headphones and ended up buying a pair for all my family members this past holiday season.
We are excited to share our thoughts and (hopefully) helpful tips on traveling, exploring, and dancing around the world!
