Weatherproof Phone Case
Do you travel without a smartphone? If you answered yes to this question, chances are still high you were not completely truthful. The smartphone is one of the first things every traveler takes with him during travel. With several apps, the ability to check your mails and social media, it’s a piece of technology we simply can’t miss anymore. But what to do when you get caught in bad weather? Protecting your phone in a ziploc bag is one option, but not very useful if you want to use it through a wet plastic bag. The weatherproof cases of LifeProof cases provide the ultimate solution!
There's a case for most phones
During your holiday, your smartphone, tablet or laptop will need to be charged. Several times. Not always an easy task when traveling in a country where they have a different type of outlets and you forgot your universal adapter. Or what if you don’t stay in hotels and want to spend your days in nature? A solar charger provides the solution to your problem. Goal Zero has several chargers that are even useful to take for hikers, backpackers or climbers.

Trakdot Luggage Tracker
Loosing your luggage is the fear of every traveler. Especially when it contains stuff you can’t miss and you’re traveling for a long period. More than once I carried important gear for my expeditions and was praying everything would arrive at its destination. The Trakdot Luggage tracker is a gadget that will ease your mind. Via an app on your smartphone you can track your luggage all over the world. There is an annual fee to be paid however.
The Ortrich Pillow
It may not look that fashionable but this bandana-like eye pillow will make your flying a lot easier. Having trouble to sleep during a long flight is a problem most travelers have to deal with. The Ostrich Pillow Loop is the result of a Kickstarter campaign fully funded by travelers dealing with those problems. It allows you to disconnect from your surroundings completely and will make snoozing a lot easier.

The LifeStraw is the number one gadget on my Christmas list this year. Maybe not useful if you stay at hotels and resorts, but for adventurers like me, it’s an amazing travel gadget that could literally save your life. You can use the straw to drink for any water source thinkable. The LifeStraw removes 99.99% of all bacteria and turns any water you can find into safe drinking water. One straw can filter up to 1000 litre so unless you are a very thirsty person, you can use it for a very long time.
Beats drinking your own pee!
Selfie sticks are so 2015, so if you’re still packing a selfie stick in your luggage, it’s time to check this new travel gadget. The foldable selfie drone is a very small drone with a small range but more than enough to take pictures of you in action. It can be controlled with your smartphone and is extremely easy to pack because of its small size. The ideal travel gadget to take your selfies to a whole different level!
