Best Travel Pillow

Posted on , by Giovanna in Travel Gear. Comments Off on Best Travel Pillow

To call this the best travel pillow would not be an exaggeration because it won the British Inventor of the Year Award in 2013. It has solved the problem of sleepless travel by stopping your head  from rolling forward while you’re sleeping with its unique chin rest.

This article is part of our gifts for travelers series. We are focusing on gifts for hikers, walkers and people who like to carry their world on their backs while they roam free.

Gifts for Travelers: Best carry on Bags

Posted on , by Giovanna in Travel Gear. Comments Off on Gifts for Travelers: Best carry on Bags

I have done some research into the best carry on bags and on how to pack everything you need for a 7 day holiday somewhere hot in that one bag! You can carry a handbag on flights too and that’s where I’d put my tablet and camera, mobile etc.



The three-person umbrella

There are very few places in the world where you won’t encounter the occasional rainy day. So unless a trip to the Sahara Desert is on the agenda, most of us pack an umbrella when we travel.



Best Camera Bag for Travel

Posted on , by Giovanna in Travel Gear. Comments Off on Best Camera Bag for Travel

This bag would make a great present for a traveler with a lot of photography gear, because it is a travel camera bag that you can carry on airplanes, eliminating the  worry of having to  put expensive equipment in the hold.
