It doesn't matter whether it's a camping holiday or a mountain hike, a business trip or back-to-back: when we leave our sweet home, we often forego the luxury that we are used to at home. This does not restrict us on vacation, but is still sorely missed. Especially when we have to sleep on Mother Earth, drink bad coffee or wear crumpled clothes. With the right travel gadgets, these problems are a thing of the past.
The longer you go on vacation, the more difficult it becomes to take all the textiles that you need in everyday life with you - especially the towel. Before you pack several copies, which only take up an unnecessarily large amount of space, it is advisable to use special travel towels made of microfiber. On the one hand, the models are significantly narrower and lighter, on the other hand, they have the positive property of drying much faster. This is worth its weight in gold when traveling. Here you will find the towel.
Be honest: Have you ever stepped on your scales with your suitcase packed to find out how heavy your luggage really is? Then you are certainly not the only one! Especially if you want to fly to another country, every extra kilo plays a decisive role when packing your suitcase. This makes it all the more important to determine the weight of your luggage before you check in. With the digital hand scale, this will no longer be a problem in the future. Here you will find the scales.
It weighs just 155 grams and still fulfills a major task: the travel sleeping bag protects you from dirty bed linen when travelling. Especially when backpacking, in a hut or in a third-class hostel, the hygienic standards are rather insufficient - the practical inlay made of microfibre is breathable and pleasant on the skin. When folded, the sleeping bag takes up no more than a handful in your backpack, making it the ideal companion for on the go. The sleeping bag is here.
If you want to travel to a faraway country, you usually sit in the plane for several hours. The Senner TravelPro hearing protection can be used to compensate for the pressure and block out the noise: the special earplugs filter the noise without blocking out all ambient noise. In other words, if an important announcement comes, you will hear it despite hearing protection. Alternatively, there are also suitable earplugs for sleeping. You can find hearing protection here.
In many countries, the sockets look different than in Germany - charging electronic devices quickly becomes a big problem. To be on the safe side, we recommend taking a travel adapter with you, which can be used in more than 170 countries (including the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Ireland, Israel, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Fiji, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Botswana, etc.) can be used. You can get the adapter here.
How badly have you ever missed your own bed on vacation? Especially on camping holidays, the hard ground is often a nightmare - especially for people with back problems. This is where an outdoor hammock can be of great use: Whether traveling, trekking, hiking or on the beach: the sturdy material is extremely tear-resistant and can also be folded up to the size of a football - and therefore fits in any luggage. The hammock is here.
Electronic devices are often difficult to stow in luggage. You could often use them on the campsite or in the mountains. Above all, a kettle for warm meals or hot drinks is particularly practical on vacation - as long as there is a socket nearby. In this case, a foldable kettle is ideal, which with a capacity of half a liter is ideal for outdoor activities. The kettle is here.
If you spend your vacation on the water - be it in a boat, kayak or canoe - you should protect technical devices such as smartphones and cameras from moisture in particular. A waterproof bag is ideal here, which can be attached to the boat with a special strap and (depending on the size) offers enough space for all items that should not and must not get wet. You can get the bag here.
Even if the mobile phone captures most of the holiday impressions these days, many travelers occasionally feel the need to write down their experiences. A diary with blank pages is particularly good for this, in which you can record everything that moved you on vacation: pictures, receipts, words or paintings - the possibilities are endless. Years later, the travel diary will remind you of the wonderful vacation. The diary is here.
Before the holiday is after the holiday: If you like to travel a lot, the Scratch Map is the ideal companion - even if you don't take the world map with you. This is simply hung on the wall at home, so that you can scratch off the country in which you spent your vacation after each subsequent trip. Over time, more and more colored areas appear, which always remind you of where you have been... and where not (yet). The scratch map is here.
In many countries, coffee is downright undrinkable - not because of the coffee itself, but because of the way the local people prefer to drink it. So that you don't have to do without your favorite coffee on vacation, you can use a portable espresso machine. It works by pressure only, without electricity, and can be used anywhere as long as you can heat the water first. You can find the product here.
Do you know that too? You go to the trouble of ironing all the shirts for the upcoming business trip in advance - only to find out on the spot that the sensitive items of clothing are crumpled again. You can avoid this annoyance with a foldable shirt pocket, which not only protects the textiles from wrinkles but also the collar due to its hard shell, its double-sided design and its specially shaped case. You can find the bag here.
