Disclaimer: I am not an expert travel blogger, what I am sharing are items which I have found useful and use when I travel.
Now that that’s out of the way, lets discuss 5 essential travel items for a blogger.
When I shared the post on 10 things to carry in your hand luggage I got quite good feedback and some bloggers even managed to pin my post for the future. I have quite a lot of travels planned in the next couple months with my first trip abroad this year being my trip to Seoul, south korea next week. As you can imagine I am pretty excited, this will be my first time in South Korea and my first time overall in an Asian country. My aim is to visit each continent at least once in my life, so Seoul pretty much ticks Asia off.
I travel a lot over the weekends and this is because I either have to go to see my parents, visit friends, attend blog conferences or visit that special someone. I am sure every blogger will agree with me when I say every travel I make whether a couple hours or days/weeks/months I always walking/travelling with my blogger hat on. Thinking maybe this would be nice to share with my readers or maybe I want to record this for my own accord etc. So it’s important for me to carry around certain essential items.
At any point in time, you will find the following in my bag:
Phone – Both my personal and work mobile phones are always on me more than my wallet and keys. I need my work phone for obvious reasons but on weekends for the awesome iphone apps I have installed. My personal mobile for everything really including uploading pictures to instagram and/or Facebook/Twitter. I also use my phone for notes but this is rare as I love writing my blog ideas down.
Headphones – The other day I went into the newly opened Didcot Lidl and it was very busy place, I did my food shopping and when it came to pay I took my headphones off. OMG was I glad I had them on when I entered the store, it was so loud, so many kids running around and screaming some poor mummies trying to control them and nothing worked. I love my headphones big time, not only for what have described above but for travelling as well because sometimes I struggle to sleep so playing classical music helps.
Powerbank – Even before I was given the chance to review the power by I used to walk with Boo’s powerbank in my bag. It is such a life saver, most of the smart phones these days die faster than back in the day but then again back in the day we never trolled the internet like we do now and remember the nokia brick that never died no matter what?
Camera – I am yet to meet a blogger who doesn’t either walk around with a camera or has no camera on their phone. Though I do not carry this camera daily since both my mobiles have good enough cameras I do take it with me when I am going away for longer than a day or for my trips abroad.
Ipad/Laptop – For almost a year I used to use my ipad to blog and yes it was hard typing up posts and still is for when I do it. I bought an ipad extension keyboard but the connector broke after a few uses and I went back to just ipad screen keyboard. I have since bought a chromebook which is more or less an ipad with keyboard attached but nonetheless I always walk around with either my ipad or my chromebook mostly for movies than blogging if I am honest.
Another item that I always walk around with is;
Notebook – I always walk around with my notebook for taking notes and jotting down blog ideas. The current notebook has more about what I want/need for my first apartment than blogging ideas.
These are some of the items I like to travel with, what are some of yours?
