Gear, Gadgets and Apps: Top Gifts for People Who Travel All the Time

If you love traveling, then you will surely like this post we have today from Eloise. She will share to us some gifts that people who like to travel will love the most. Take a look at what she prepared for us.

Top Gifts for People Who Travel All the Time

Travel can be a way of life for some people: they just don't seem to be satisfied unless they're off to their next big adventure. And if you have someone in your life who does just that, you may find that it’s difficult to find the right thing for them.

With today’s technology, however, you should have no problem finding them cool gifts and suggestions that they can use throughout their travels. Everyone can always use something, you just have to figure out what it is they need. Here are a few ideas that may be able to help the traveler in your life.

A VPN Socket

One of the most frustrating things about traveling is that sometimes you aren’t allowed to use apps that you normally can in your part of the world. Having a VPN is one easy way around this frustration.

VPN stands for Virtual Personal Network, and while there are many uses for one, it can help travels live with the comforts of home. If for instance, you want to watch Netflix in another country, you may be shut out because. Using a VPN will let you watch as normal because you can enter your home address.

The socket VPN creates a network when you plug your device in, so it takes the hassle out of finding an app to do so. VPNs are also a great added security feature for when you go on public WiFi so you can find uses for it wherever you travel.

A Great Weather App

Weather Live Free is a weather app by Apalon Apps that will keep you informed on all of the weather conditions -- present and future -- from anywhere in the world so you will always know what to expect.

The app has all of the pertinent information: temperature (including “feels like” temperature, the humidity percentage, the wind speed, and direction and it even has the sunrise and sunset times. Weather Live also features a seven-day forecast and uses a constantly-updated weather radar to show you any fronts that are moving toward or away from your location.

Weather Live also has a built-in widget that you can personalize on your home screen, so you can have all of the information right at your disposal.

A Portable USB Charger

One of the great luxuries of the 21st century is being able to have mobile devices with you wherever you go. The bad things about it are that you need to keep them all charged.

A good USB charger like this one can charge up to two devices at a time with speed so your devices are always ready. The charger itself plugs into a socket and can last for nearly 500 full charges so you will not need another one for a very long time. You can even use the devices while they're plugged in to save battery life.

Think of these cool items next time you talk to someone who travels all of the time.

Independent Travelling Tips With Kids

Tired of all the year-round stress and work? Want to take a break and see the world in a different perspective? The best way to do that is through independent travelling. This will surely give you an experience that you will never forget.

Independent Travelling Tips

When we say independent travelling, it means that you plan everything by yourself from the dates to the hotels and as well as to the activities you will do in the areas. You don't pay for a travel agency. You look for places to visit and you follow your own schedule. 

I haven't tried travelling with a travel agency because I prefer independent travelling. I don't want to be dragged on schedules and I am choosy on places to visit. Also, it is more satisfying on my part to plan my own trip.

But if it is your first time to do this, make sure that you will look into this three important tips that we will share below so that your first independent travel will be successful and full of fun.

1. Choose a destination. Of course, the first thing that you need to do is to choose a place to visit. If there is a certain destination that you want to see, check this out and try to list down which tourist spots you want to go when you arrive there. But don't just stick to one destination. Try to consider other places too so you can choose the best place to visit. 

2. Plan your trip based on your budget. You don't have to spend all your savings for a trip. So, allocate a certain budget for that. Then look for best rates for flights, and other transportation that you need. Book a flight earlier so that you can get a cheaper rate. Look for hotels that are not so expensive. Check their amenities if suits to your needs and reserve ahead of time. Also, allocate a budget for food. Try to look for restaurants that you want to try and check their menu prices.  

3. Know what to pack. Since you have planned everything already, make sure that you will plan beforehand on the things that you need to pack especially if you will be travelling with the kids. Don't forget to travel light. Why? Because this will save you for the check-in luggage and it would be easier to go transfer from the airport to the hotel with a light luggage. Also, you will surely hate it to wait on the baggage area for a long time!

It isn't that hard, right? Well, to make things a lot easier, you can just do it step by step and do it months earlier so that you won't be in a rush. Nothing beats a well-planned trip. But what about if you are travelling with the kids? Well, here is an infographic which gives parents some travelling advice from the kids. 

For sure, the kids know what they want. So, if you will try to follow their advice, you will realize that it can actually make a trip fun!
