MAKE YOUR TRAVEL DREAMS HAPPEN

Why do we travel?

To get a change of scenery. To meet people. To learn more about other cultures. To get away from the stuff we’re used to. To learn more about ourselves. There are plenty of reasons why people travel, and it’s going to differ from person to person.

When to travel?

You can travel whenever you are physically and mentally ready. So forget age. Forget whether you’re single, married, with a family or retired. It just doesn’t matter. Just like there’s no one right way to travel, there’s also no right age or situation to start traveling.

Who do you travel with?

A pair is able to make a decision and go for it so much easier than three. There always seems to be two jobs going, or two beds available. When you travel in pairs, you have a buddy to share those magical moments like watching the sunrise on the top of a mountain.

Great product for travelers

Adapters & Charging. If you’re traveling with a good amount of technology then you should consider packing this handy Glamfields powerstrip. Many times hotels will have just one outlet, so this is the best way to ensure your camera, phone, and gear is all charged in the morning. I always carry a bigger multi-adapter (and these have gotten very cool now, where it has a USB-C charging spot for my Mac, as well as three quick-charging USB ports!). Then, a few stray smaller ones usually float around my bag since I have a lot of electronics to charge—although now that the bigger adapters have so many USB ports I can more easily get away with just one universal travel adapter.

This Glamfields travel charger supports UK / US / EU / AUS plugs, applicable in more than 200 countries.
