I'm off travelling for three weeks in just 12 day's time and I couldn't be more prepared or excited. There's something about leaving London temporarily and exploring a new country that makes me feel so at peace with myself and the world so I am really looking forward to getting away. My last travel related post explains where I am off to this year so I had better get packing pretty soon-ish!

1. A durable iPhone case. 
I have an iPhone 6 which is just under a year old. I don't fancy breaking it any time soon so I think the most sensible idea for me right now is to get a durable phone case that will see my phone returning home in one piece with me. Tech21 have a whole range of different iPhone case styles that are specifically designed to protect your iPhone. My top case of choice is their Evo Xplorer which is waterproof, rustproof with impact protection. Absolutely perfect for being around the pool or at the beach and having one too many holiday cocktails!

2. Power bank.
It's to no surprise that a power bank is a must have for just about anyone who has a smart phone. 100% battery can quickly go to 85% simply by just checking all of my social media in the mornings so I'll be taking my customised one which I wrote about a few months ago. I get about 2 full charges out of it so it's perfect for travelling as I can re-charge it every few days.

3. GoPro HERO4.
One of my favourite possessions, ever. I got the GoPro HERO4 last year before I went travelling and I used it so much whilst away. It's a great camera that is waterproof in its case for up to 40m, captures 12mp photos and films at 30 seconds per frame. Check out my travel post from last year for photographs shot on my GoPro and I also filmed a video here

4. Bluetooth speaker.
I love listening to music whilst chilling on holiday; whether it's in my earphones or through a speaker at the beach. The UE roll is a must have for me since I used it whilst travelling last year. The sound is amazing for such a small speaker. It's also waterproof so is perfect for being around water. It's pretty much THE perfect holiday tech essential.

5. DSLR.
My DSLR goes with me pretty much everywhere. I always get asked questions regarding what camera and lenses I use and I will do a post on this in the future. I use a Nikon D5100 which is a very old model now but as with all photography; your lens choice is the most important thing. I'll be taking my 50mm and 35mm lenses as these are perfect for outfit and food photography!

6. Tripod.
It's not always the best idea to rely on other people to shoot your outfit photos whilst on holiday. Together with the hot weather and general laid back approach; it was tough getting everything that I wanted shot done by the end of my holidays last year. Therefore, I've decided I'll be taking my tripod away this year which is a super light one so is perfect for travelling with weight restrictions. I got it from eBay about 4 years ago for around ten pounds.

  1. I'm travelling soon and really wondering whether to take my DSLR with me - It's new and I'm so scared of breaking it! Hope you have a great trip.

  2. love these! I def need to invest in a new/better charging bank! I also recently found a cheaper yet better alternative to the GoPro and can't wait to try it out!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Such a great list! I agree that a durable phone cover is a must-have item all year round - not only when travelling! :)
