Friday Fun: 6 Travel Accessories for the World Traveler
We know who you are. You spend your weekdays scouring over discounted flight deals and keeping tabs on rates to potential travel destinations, eagerly awaiting your next adventure. And as soon as the clock hits on that Friday evening, you are already out of the office heading to the airport with your duffle bag packed and tossed over your shoulder. Your weekends are spent away from the place you call home Monday to Friday. Sometimes that away means the next state over and other times it means you’ve crossed the seas. You live for these mini escapes to explore the world around you. In this week’s Friday Fun roundup, we’ve gathered some of the best travel accessories for the world traveler, you! So what are you waiting for? #AdventureAwaits
1) GoPro Camera
You love tackling adventurous activities head-on! So don’t miss the opportunity to capture each and every picture-worthy moment. GoPro’s are amazing cameras designed to capture just about anything on the move, from skiing down the slopes of the Swiss Alps to leaping 15,000 ft off an aircraft in Australia’s Rainbow Beach.
2) Monthly/Weekly Planner
A planner notebook is a must for jet-setter like you! While you enjoy keeping notes on your phone, as a smart traveler you understand that sometimes you might not have access to a charger or be able to find a free outlet. There is something fundamental about writing things down to help you remember what’s next. Having a handy-dandy calendar nearby can also help you identify what days you’re free for your next adventure! Get inspired with a exotic planner like the At-A-Glance’s Marrakesh Planner 2017.
3) Wireless Headphones
As much as you like flying, sitting in a plane for XX number of hours can still be pretty boring. That’s why you seldom leave for a trip with your headset! If you haven’t it yet, now is the best time to jump onto the wireless headphone trend. These headphones operate by connecting to bluetooth for your phone and/or tablet for consistent smooth audio. The featured Boss Headphones offer interchangeable accents to customized with your favorite colors!
4) Inflatable Hoodie Pillow
Traveling light is a must but so is traveling comfortably! Taking a quick nap on the commute can restore your energy levels till you’ve arrived at your destination, but sometimes it can be difficult to sleep sitting. Now your problem can be solved… Try the inflatable Hoodie Pillow for the ultimate comfort experience. The neck pillow secures your head from nodding wildly and the hoodie is the perfect shield for when you want people to leave you alone!
5) Pencil Case
The best office supplies are ones that can work double-time on and off duty. Take your pencil case for example, its intended use is to secure your writing utensils (and sometimes more) for use during the day. However, take it on a weekend trip and it becomes an extra pocket to hold your passport, air fare tickets, your ID, cash, and more! Just choose your next pencil case wisely- we recommend a medium-sized case with a zipper closure like Advantus’s Large Soft-Sided Pencil Case!
6) Water Bottle
Smart travelers know that staying hydrated is super important, but purchasing a plastic bottle of water each time can become expensive. That’s why they often carry their own bottle to refill with water! As a rule of thumb, tap water throughout the U.S. is generally safe to drink from. Those who are backpacking a little further? You’ll need to do your research, but it will definitely be helpful to carry a water bottle like the Grayl Filtration Cup, which can filter and purify your drink!
