Personalized coffee mug

Why coffee mug, you’d ask. Travelling is impossible without visiting cafes and trying the amazing coffees. These coffee shops are present in suburban districts of Vietnam, Sri Lanaka, Thailand, Bahrain, etc. A personalized coffee mug adds sophistication to your visits to local coffee shops. Who knows the hygiene quality of a local coffee shop and the utensils it uses. You can politely ask them to pour some coffee in your mug and get going. These personalized mugs are also a great Instagram add-on as it travels with you wherever you go.

For the travellers, who consider camera as an essential part of their trip, a camera stand to stabilize their shots is very important. Now, it will be absurd if someone asks you to carry a huge tripod everywhere. Instead you can cut down the weight of your luggage and carry a mini camera stand and enjoy making star trails and timelapse with the same quality that a big stand offers.

Universal USB Port

One of my personal favorites is the universal USB charger. This USB charger is a life saver as you don’t have to carry multiple charging plugs and get your work done through one multipurpose charger. These chargers have multiple ports and often come with charging point for laptop and camera battery. The worst part of losing a charger is buying a costly adapters, you can instead carry the USB cable and leave your worries of keeping many delicate USB adapters while traveling.

      Mug is a little tough to carry in the rucksack so many don’t think about it.

    Agreed! The USB port is a must, but I never thought about traveling with my own coffee mug, that’s genius!

    The USB Port I agree with 100%…. Coffee mugs not so much, as I like to get a new one on each trip (but each to their own) 🙂

    Thanks for the list, and your photos are fantastic.
