Memorial Day - Summer Start - Travel Start

Must-Have Travel Gadgets for Summer

Memorial Day (May 30,2016) is the official kickoff for the summertime travel season. So that means that the airports will be hopping. Expect the roads to be packed with people making the most out of their four-day weekend as well. I have put together a graph of the worst travel days during the holidays here: Top Holidays for Travel & Their Rating. Weekends are the busiest travel days during the summer and holidays.

Video Camera
Videos are the new photos. Maybe not. But videos are a lot more prevalent and easier to shoot than ever before.  With a portable video camera, you can grab videos throughout your travel and enhance your post-trip memories. Cameras, such as the GoPro line, are great for taking videos above water as well as in the water for some action shots. You would want one with great stability and resolution as your subjects and you are unlikely to stand still.

Summertime is a fun time. And fun time needs to be captured. A good camera can grab a shot, a great camera can take a picture of the moment worthy of all your social media. I like cameras that are able to multi-task and take great shots. This is especially important for travel so you do not have to drag multiple cameras and all of their accessories. That is why for our trips, I like the waterproof, and shockproof Olympus Tough Digital Camera. It can take the bumps and shakes of a trip and still take great shots.

Mophie Powerstation (4000mAh)
These are essential for any summer travel. All of the gadgets and entertainment devices depend on chargers for their lifeline. Smartphones and tablets need a power pack, such as the Anker PowerCore, to keep them going. Photo and video cameras need their batteries charged or powered up via a USB or DC source. DVD players, radios, and so on also need batteries or a way to plug in their plugs. So travel DC adapter wall charger units are also a great idea to pack.

Waterproof Case
Summer activities large percent of the time include water or other liquids. A waterproof case for your devices would keep them safe and you sane and not missing out on things because of water damage during your vacation trip.

It would not be a kick off of summer without official postings of displaying and saluting the flag, barbecues, hanging out at the beach on Instagram or Facebook. To make sure you can post your pictures quickly and without inquiring data costs, you would need access to a good Wi-Fi source.
To make sure your information is safe to use the private virtual network while traveling, such as Private Internet Access, that will encrypt all of your internet traffic and protect your identity.

Reading Material
In the world of reading in the 20th century, no gadget can beat the versatility, storage, and accessibility of Amazon Kindle. It's a great e-book to take just about anywhere with you. It is easy to load up with books and magazines. The device is quick to turn on, light has easy to see the screen, easy to flip through pages. And most importantly it substitutes multiple books and/or magazine in one compact package.

Bluetooth Speakers
On the plane and train, you likely would want to keep the music to yourself and plug in noise-canceling headphones. Though summertime is also a more social time. Hanging out outdoors is more likely as are barbecues, pool parties, and beach outings. During these events, you can share your tunes with the group with a set of great sounding yet portable wireless speakers.

It is important to safeguard your eyes from the direct rays of the sun during the year. But it is even more important during the summer as there are more sunny days and the sun is also stronger.
