What’s in my Travel Bag? Gadget Essentials When Traveling
July 10, 2019

Here are the gadgets I always bring when I travel.

It’s summer once again, it is now a time when most of us head out and escape the crazy heat of the UAE. While most of us will pack clothes and other essentials there’s a big percentage of travelers who would prefer to take their gadgets with them – including me. While I try to avoid carrying heavy stuff like a laptop I substitute with something lighter like a tablet.

Since I’ll be roaming around different cities by the end of this month, here are some of the gadgets I always have in my bag whenever I travel:

Apple iPad (2018) with Apple Pencil – I originally wanted the iPad Pro, but budget constraints meant that I went for the cheapest option instead. Still, using it as a substitute for browsing websites, reading emails or binge-watching Stranger Things on Netflix – it certainly does the job. Add to the fact that I can also use it to edit my photos and videos also add to the reasons why I’d bring this instead of my MacBook Pro

Apple iPhone XS Max – It’s my primary smartphone where a bulk of my most-used apps are installed. I also use it as my primary camera, just in case I get lazy bringing my normal camera. I mostly have an Apple ecosystem, so having the latest and greatest iPhone is the main choice for me. Also when traveling, I always bring a power bank so I don’t worry about running out of juice while I explore places. In this case, I’ve paired my iPhone XS Max with a Battery Case from Apple.

Google Pixel 3 – Despite my love for iOS I still own an Android device. The Google Pixel 3’s camera also does wonders, and just in case I’m not satisfied with my shots on the iPhone the Pixel always saves the day. I also have Google Fi on my Pixel 3, which works wonders when I travel since I don’t always have to purchase a local SIM on every destination I go to. 

Insta360 One – I was given a 360 camera a few years ago and while I never used it at first, it gave me some of the coolest shots I’ve had on the different places I’ve gone to. I’m still in love with my current Insta360 One, though I already have my eyes on the newer Insta360 One X.
