Going On a Holiday? Don’t Leave These Gadgets Behind

So, what’s it going to be this summer? A long road trip, an adventurous camping trip, a rite-of-passage backpacking trip through Europe or a luxury holiday to an exotic destination. Irrespective of the nature of your travel destination, some gadgets can make your experience more convenient and enjoyable.

Some of you might object saying that you go on a holiday precisely to get away from your laptops and all the workload they come with. While we aren’t denying that in any which way, we are only saying that your gadgets are good for more than just checking mails and getting work done. With a smartphone or a tablet, you can have access to valuable information in a foreign land, information that can make way for a more relaxed and fun-filled holiday. Here is a list of some recommended gadgets to carry on a holiday trip:

1. Garmin nuvi 3590LMT – We know most smartphones come with GPS these days, but it’s always better to have a dedicated GPS simply because of the better quality of information provided. The Garmin nuvi 3590LMT is one of the more high-end GPS models made by Garmin. It comes with a 5-inch touch screen, regularly updated maps along with traffic updates. It could easily prove to be priceless in a country where you might not even speak the local tongue. To be on the safer side, carry your directions with you.

2. Bowers & Wilkins Z2 – What do you do when you have an irresistible urge to party on a holiday? Simple, you carry your own speakers. Don’t worry, we aren’t speaking about huge and bulky speakers. Instead, we are talking about portable, sleek and lightweight AirPlay speakers which will play music directly off your iPod or iPad. The Bowers & Wilkins Z2 comes with all these features and much more including top notch audio quality.

3. Kindle Paperwhite - Always wanted to sit by the beach and read your favorite book? Here’s your chance, except you won’t have to carry multiple heavy books along with you. Just take your Kindle Paperwhite and load it with all your favorite novels. It comes with a no-fuss touchscreen, back-lit screen and the Kindle e-ink display technology. Just charge this e-book reader once and it will last for nearly a whole month. And, it could be a perfect companion for those long flight and road trips as well.

4. Nikon D5200 – What’s a vacation without a brilliant camera? We know DSLRs can be complicated if you have never used them before. That’s why we are recommending an entry level DSLR, which comes with a lot of user-friendly features. For instance, if you don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of things, just choose the Automatic settings and click photos to your heart’s desire. At the same time, the camera offers multiple features for photography enthusiasts as well.
