20 Best Travel Accessories Everyone Should Pack In 2019
13. GoPro 7
We use our GoPro every day for taking video and for some still shots. People can argue about quality cameras, and what is better for each situation, but we can tell you with certainty the Go Pro is an excellent camera. Two of the best qualities of the GoPro is it’s rugged and compact for travelers.
14. Handheld Smartphone Gimble
If you have a GoPro, or you take a lot of video with your Smartphone, you may want to consider this handheld Gimble. When we started traveling, we didn’t have a Gimble so much of our video is shaky and can be annoying for the viewer. When we added the Gimble to our GoPro, it smoothed our shots and gave it that cinematic look. We use the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimble.
When we started our trip, we took one laptop and a tablet for me. Because traveling is our business, we spend a lot of time editing videos and writing blog posts; needless to say the tablet was not cutting it and caused a great deal of frustration. It’s great for reading, but for writing and researching it’s awful.
While in Mexico, we decided to purchase the 11 inch HP Chromebook Laptop and I absolutely love it! It’s faster than a standard laptop, it’s big enough so I can see it, and it holds a charge for 10 hours. It’s easy to transport, very portable for travel, great for checking emails, writing, watching a video or browsing the internet. The only thing we don’t use it for is video editing.
16. Comfortable Shoes For Exploring
We do a lot of walking, whether it’s through airports, hiking or visiting the cities sights. It’s so important to have good shoes especially if you are planning on walking a lot. I really like my Teva hiking sandals because they are great for hiking, walking and they are cute! I wanted a comfortable shoe that looked good whether I was hiking or eating at a restaurant.
Joel is still hunting for the perfect hiking/walking shoe, so when we find it, I will add it to this article. He had a bulky (kind of ugly) pair, but a dog stole one while we were in Costa Rica.
17. Portable Bluetooth Speaker
We really like this waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It’s 10 watts, with excellent sound quality and a 10-hour playtime. The one we use is the OontZ Angle 3 PLUS – Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
18. Carry on Backpack For Computers & Electronics
Now if you’re not bringing your laptop with you, because you plan on having a vacation with no work involved you probably won’t need this item. Joel carries this backpack as his extra bag on the plane because we don’t want to check our computers, camera equipment, or drone. It’s basically our bag for all our camera and office stuff. We use the AmazonBasics Carry-On Travel Backpack.
19. Bring a Biodegradable Sunscreen
Sunscreen can be quite expensive to buy at your final destination, especially on the islands, so we always bring some with us. We like SunBum sunscreen because it’s chemical free, which means it’s safe for ocean life and our skin. It comes in 3 oz to 8 oz bottles, so you are covered whether you check your bags or not. We typically check at least one suitcase, because a lot of our bathroom bottles have more than 3.4 ounces and we have more than the 1-quart size bag of liquids allowable for a carry on.
20. Pack Coffee
This may seem nutty to some, but I am kind of addicted to coffee, and there’s nothing worse than waking up, after a long night of travel and not having coffee. Sometimes we arrive at our location late at night, and many places we stay do not have coffee or even a coffee maker in the room. We usually do not have transportation right outside our door, and finding a Starbucks is out of the question in many places we travel. So I pack a baggie filled with ground coffee along with some small filters so I can make coffee in the room.
Some of the best coffee I’ve had was during our travels through the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and Panama. I found the coffee to be less acidic, smooth, and inexpensive. If you want to check them out on Amazon, click the links below. I was able to purchase the ground while in the country; however, it’s a better deal on Amazon to buy the Costa Rican & Panamian coffee beans rather than the ground.
