You can't deny the fun and excitement of planning your next holiday. As it gets closer to your travel date, make sure you've checked off these 10 essential tips before you take off on your journey to avoid and travel blunders. So, where to this year?
If your luggage gets lost, those undies and that toothbrush will come in very handy.
Even if you are not the ‘map person’ on the trip and you’ll be relying on someone else’s map reading skills, it doesn’t hurt to know your bearings just in case you get lost.
Hard copy? Yes, we have heard of google maps but when connection is poor and your phone battery is dead, you’ll be glad you’ve got a hard copy backup. And also we feel that the art of traditional map reading has been lost. Get your pen out and draw all over that map!
Self explanatory but important!
Losing things at the airport or getting things stolen while you're overseas (especially gear!) sucks. Protect yourself and make sure you buy travel insurance before hand. As photographers, our gear is dear to us so let's not skimp out on a couple hundred dollars when you could end up thousands of dollars out of pocket instead.
We like the TID guys.
We don’t always want to lug around our laptop while we travel so we love this Wireless Passport by WD that allows you to Transfer or back up photos and videos from your SD card in the field so that you can keep on shooting. You may also share your content stored on your My Passport Wireless using any device that is connected to the drive.
Avoid looking like a tourist with an understated and protective camera bag so you’re not flashing your expensive gear around. Bring your essentials only and travel incognito with a No More Ugly Camera Bag.
We hope you enjoyed these 10 Essential Tips and Happy Travelling!
