Travel photography gear

Gadgets and accessories
A solar portable power bank is the best way to keep your device going with no possibility of charging from an external electricity source on a long journey, whether camping or eco-tourism. The principle is really simple. The solar power bank picks up even the slightest sunlight and converts it into electricity that charges your smartphone. Essentially, it’s a portable battery with an eternal and free source of energy.

No more worries about the safety of electronic equipment and data during a thunderstorm.

This transforming bag is just adorable! It’s equipped with a pair of robust wheels and a telescoping handle system, allowing you to easily deliver luggage from point A to point B without lifting it. However, if transporting the bag on wheels isn’t preferable, you can transform it from a suitcase with wheels into a backpack within seconds. If you need to take only a couple of things, then just put them in the included daypack. As a result, instead of three separate suitcases, you can take one that takes up a minimum amount of space and accommodates maximum gear.
Use this Eagle Creek set to perfectly organize your clothes. With packing cubes, you’ll be surprised how much space your suitcase has. The dimensions of the cubes are quite versatile and let you store all types of clothing without its getting wrinkled during the trip. Due to the semi-transparent but durable and water-resistant fabric, you can easily recognize the contents of each packing cube.
This is a real catch for those who care about their appearance even while traveling. This folder weighs almost nothing but holds up to seven shirts and prevents wrinkles. The envelope provides protection against pilling for fabrics requiring careful storage.
With this packing folder, your shirts will remain in good condition during a flight or on a camping trip. If your friend gets a call to hold an online conference, he’ll look decent even if you’re out on a hike.

A travel journal can inspire the recipient to write their own book. Where else if not on a journey can you connect with the brightest ideas and deepest thoughts, when the mind is free from burdensome things.

A personal travel journal is a great way to capture the atmosphere of adventure and to understand yourself not only at the time of travel but also when re-reading your thoughts years later.
