I’ve been a collector of travel books as soon as I reached adulthood. What began with curiosity to read up on my next travel destination became an obsession with finding the right travel book. When traveling, the last thing you want to do is carry a clunky heavy book on your journey. We’ve found the below books and gadgets super useful.
We love the Rick Steves’ Pocket guides and we love his free audio tours. His books are tiny and light enough to pack and carry with you as you tour a city. They have a lot of handy features like maps and walks you can follow.
Rick Steves Pocket Venice,
Lonely Planet’s Lisbon guide.
Outlander backpack: We found this backpack while perusing options on Amazon. We liked it because it folds up and can easily be packed away when not in use. It’s been one of our favorite travel purchases.
Bugxpro Bracelets: OMG these things have been such a life saver, especially nowadays with the fear of Zika virus looming over us! We wear these in buggy places and have never gotten bite. Would highly recommend.
