EuroTribe’s Travel Gear Guide

0 Posted by - March 27, 2017 - Advice, Blog, Travel Tips

Quality travel gear can really make your life easier when on the road. In this travel gear guide you can see some of the things I use when I travel and in every day life. It consists of basics, electronics and other things.

Basics

Cabin Max Metz Backpack

Cabin Max Metz is flight approved carry on bag. It is designed to fit to the maximum size of most airlines’ guidelines including the low-cost ones such as WizzAir, RyanAir and easyJet. If you prefer the ease of movement and if you’re heading for a city break this bag is a good choice. It’s budget friendly and it’s made for urban travelers. It will also save you money as you won’t need to check in your baggage. However, this bag is not the best choice for longer trips or backpacking because it’s not that comfortable.

Herschel Supply Co. Settlement Backpack

This is the bag I use daily and I absolutely love it! It has a hipster retro look, just like their other backpacks. It’s light, comfortable and it perfectly fits my MacBook Air 13″ and other personal belongings. It’s also great for students.

Sleep Master Mask

The best sleeping mask that eliminates light and reduces sound. It can be used for traveling, while meditating and at your own home. It’s lightweight, comfortable and it really improves your sleep.

Comfortable Shoes

Having quality comfortable shoes is the best investment you can make for your travels and in daily life in general. On average you’ll be walking at least 5 to 10 km a day and you really want to have something of good quality.

Toiletries Kit

Good toiletry bag has different compartments and allows easy access to your cosmetics.

Water Bottle

Earplugs

Absolutely necessary if you are staying at hostels or trying to sleep while traveling.

Electronics

13″ MacBook Air

After my Toshiba laptop I needed something more lightweight and portable. 13″ MacBook Air was the perfect choice. This is really one of the best laptops you can get if you plan on traveling a lot or if you’re a freelancer who’s changing working environment often.

Incase Hardshell Case for MacBook Air

If you’re taking your laptop to places having a protective case is a must! It’s 50 EUR but it’s worth the investment.

Samsung Galaxy J5

I don’t like paying a lot of money for a mobile phone, so this Samsung Galaxy J5 was a perfect choice. It has great performance, and it also provides two sim card slots which is ideal when you’re traveling. It has 13 MP camera and it delivers a lot for that price.

Nikon D3300

I love Nikon cameras and this one is one of the best DSLR cameras on the market. It has an excellent image quality and is ideal for people who want to get serious with photography.

Lowepro Camera Bag

A protective camera bag is a must have. Lowepro produces quality bags that have numerous accessory pockets.

Memory Cards

You’ll need a good memory card for your mobile and camera. I use San Disc SD card for my Nikon camera and Kingston memory card for my mobile phone.

Sony Walkman

I know that people rarely use mp3 players today, but I really love my Sony Walkman. Its battery lasts for 35 hours and you can import music from iTunes or Windows Media player. Who doesn’t love to listen to music when traveling? 🙂

Headphones

 

Other equipment

Lonely Planet Guidebooks

These guidebooks offer a lot of great advice and I love using them on my trips. Their maps and suggested itineraries are especially helpful. Lonely Planet also has a free app that you can download and use on your next trip.

Medicine and Vitamins

You should pack hand sanitizer, pain reliever, vitamin C, probiotics and motion sickness remedy. Prevention is the key.

Moleskine Journals

I use Cahier Journals made by Moleskine. They’re lightweight and durable, and each has 80 pages. Great for every day life, not just travel!

Protein Bars

They come especially handy after long trips and hikes.
