Useful gadgets and tech for your next adventure abroad

*Collaborative Post 

While we cannot travel much at the moment, hopefully, things will slowly change for the better soon and we can start getting excited about planning for our next adventures. Wherever you are in the world, chances are you’ll see someone using at least one form of technology as they go about their day. The most obvious one is a smartphone, with our phones capable of performing a whole host of functions they have become quickly embedded in our lives, not only for communication but for photography and sharing our travels with others. There is also a range of travel tech many modern-day holidaymakers can’t seem to get enough of it.

Some of the products on offer are a tad gimmicky, promising to provide a range of functionalities when in actual fact, they hardly deliver. So I thought I would share a few tech products that are beneficial to any traveller and enable even the most tiresome of journeys to go a bit more smoothly. Just like a comfortable travel pillow or a camera capable of capturing high-quality images as you venture through Italy, or a portable white noise machine to help your little one sleep, the options are vast.

With holidaymakers turning to a number of popular travel tech and gadgets in 2021, I thought I’d narrow it down to some of the best products ahead of your next trip away.

Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimbal

Being placed in charge of capturing some memorable holiday snaps or footage can be a big ask, especially if you’re only using a smartphone. To improve your chances of nailing the challenge, consider purchasing an Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimbal. This clever device will hold your phone steadily in place thanks to its built-in controls, which allow you to move the phone in a sweeping motion, enabling you to take solid images without the worry of having any shaky or blurry shots.

PowerCore 20100 Power Bank

I personally always carry a portable charger with me on my travels and adventures because you can never be sure when you may have access to a charger, especially as we have become increasingly reliant on our smartphone devices not only for taking photos but for email, booking details or Sat Nav to help locate a local restaurant or to pass the time on a coach by trying games online for a change. Keeping a battery fully charged can be a challenge, though, particularly if you’re travelling from location to location. In order to make sure your battery doesn’t die, buy a PowerCore 20100 Power Bank. This power bank is easy to carry around, and it offers two USB ports so you can charge two devices at the same time.

No Bounds House of Marley Bluetooth Speaker

I have one of these speakers myself and can vouch for how well made they are and the quality of sound -  perfect for a little bit of music when you're on the beach or having a picnic on a hike. It's also pretty robust being water and dustproof and has a 10hr playtime so isn't going to flake out on your mid-song. The No bounds speaker is also crafted with sustainable cork which is pretty cool.

Nayo Defensor Anti-theft Smart Backpack

The Nayo Smart Anti-theft backpack is perfect for those who are travelling with high-value tech such as a laptop and camera that you want to keep safe, along with your passport and travel documents. The Nayo Defensor makes it really hard for any pickpocketers to gain access to and has locking zippers, slash-proof and waterproof fabric and secret pockets along with an ergonomic design making it comfortable to carry. 

OVO Travel-Size Iron and Steamer

Creased or wrinkled clothes can be a real pain in the backside for people while they’re on an adventure abroad. To make sure you always look your best, consider purchasing the OVO Travel-Size Iron and Steamer. This miniature iron and steamer works brilliantly, and it only weighs 1.6 lbs, too.
