Equipment – 12 Fantastic Gifts for Spirited Travelers
I love my Dell Laptop and am ready to purchase a new one. One reason I love them so much is the technical support I receive. I pay for the extra technical support since I am not as tech savvy as I think. There are so many new models that I have yet explored and will let you pick and choose your favorite. Leave me a comment on which one you prefer.
My Kindle is my lifesaver. When traveling it is hurry up and wait and at those times it is great to pull out my kindle to read. I have already downloaded lots of books under wifi to read from Amazon. One can also download a travel book which is lighter, has the ability to highlight and bookmark. The fantastic thing is I can read in sunlight due to its back lighting capability.
3. Nikon D7100
I am an amateur photographer and love taking photos. I have graduated recently to the Nikon D7000 with interchangeable lens. My Nikon is a lot of camera but capable of taking some great shots. Accessories are a plus including a tripod is helpful. The Nikon D7000 has been upgraded to the Nikon D7100 from what I have read. I have not used this new one yet but would love to try the new upgrade since I took my husbands camera.
I always have plenty of Lexar Scan Disc Cards to take loads of photos. I just started using new ones every time I change out. That way I can keep track of my own photos especially if my husband takes photos too. One can also download photos off the SDHC Cards to a device and reuse. I like to use the Lexar 32GB SDHC.
4. Case Logic Backpack for my Camera
This Case Logic Back Pack is awesome. It has enough compartments to hold my camera gear and also a place to hook up my tripod on the side. Then just put on your back and go. Very rugged and a waterproof base for the times your on a hike and you need to set it down on the wet dirty ground. It can become heavy if overloaded and if your a girl or woman can be to much weight.
When I have the luxury of taking on a rolling bag the Delsey Carry On with Spinner Wheels is my go to bag. Fits in the overhead easily as long as I don’t expand. So easy to use. holds my laptop, kindle, snacks and a day worth of clothes.
Travel Clothing – 12 Fantastic Gifts for Spirited Travelers
5. Women’s Travel Clothes
My go to travel clothes are ones that wash and wear. I will usually by brands like Columbia, Title Nine, Nike and more. The stores I usually go are REI, Amazon, and Sporting Good Stores which always seem to be having a special sale. Travel Clothes are expensive so I like to try and find them at the end of the season. I love how I can pack light, wash them in the afternoon and wear them the next day.
6. Chaco Sandals
My Chaco’s 5 point sandals are great for traveling. They have ultimate support and 5 points to keep on your feet. They work well if traveling through the raining or warm seasons. They are my go to travel sandals. They are rugged with a great bottom grip. They have different styles with backs on them and some that go around the toe. The key to these sandals is to adjust the straps that gives you equal room all the way around. My go to sandals Chaco’s which I always seem to find on Zappos. I love how Zappos, they ship out quickly and have an easy return policy.
Marmot Rain Jacket is great for keeping the rain off. Has a hood, pockets that are at an angle closed by a zipper and Velcro. The jacket zippers up with Velcro enclosures in the front and zippers under the arms for ventilation. My husband loves this lightweight jacket. Easy to pack and go.

8. Here are my Favorite Travel Books
My go to travel books are Lonely Planet and Rick Steves. I choose one for the country and also for the city I am visiting. This way I can tab, highlight great places to visit to plan my holiday. My go to books that get very well worn. What I found funny was traveling through Italy one year and most travelers had the Rick Steves Travel Guides in their hands.
I like to keep my passport hidden in a leather holder. This way I do not flash which country I am from. A tip is to make sure to have it just placed inside for when going through customs not in the holders. I like this Passport Cover due to its RFID Blocking capabilities. I am all about safety and not being a target. This is on my Christmas wish list this year since my original one is all worn out.
I like to purchase my diary in the country I’m traveling in. If I can find one with the ability to switch out pages when finished that is a win win. It is always good to write down your experiences on paper and fun to read them at a later time. This will also give us travelers some memories to write in our blogs.
10. Laundry Detergent
I pack light and my clothes are mostly made of material that dry overnight. With the Woolite Washing Packets, just wash clothes, hang up and they are ready to wear the next day. The packets are individual use and you don’t have to worry about trying to save a liquid detergent.
11. Bug Repellent
These Off Deep Woods Insect Repellent packets are great and travel well. They are wipes and all you do is wipe on your skin and throw away. They keep working for hours. I keep them in a plastic bag and place in my checked in baggage. My husband loves these which came in handy while in Vietnam.
Some people including me are allergic to Deet. I found Coconut Oil is a great natural bug repellent. These Coconut Oil packets are great and easy to use. I make sure to transport in a zip-lock bag since they can be somewhat messy. Coconut Oil Packets are hard to find. I have not bought this particular brand put a similar brand.
