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.

No matter how many trips you take, actually planning it will often be a very long and frustrating experience. Add to that trying to plan a trip between multiple people and it just gets that much more complicated.
