Before we started this family travel blog, we have always taken tech for travel especially away with us on a family holiday. Even now we still have a number of must haves that we take away with us. As kids the most we ever took away with us was a CD player or games console…oh how times have changed!
Our Top Tech For Travel
We all have tablets…yes even the boys. Saves them both fighting over them. On the boys tablets they both have games, educational apps, and videos (Amazon Prime is a life saver!). I use my tablet mostly for emails, internet and checking the blog. We try not to take away any laptops, however if we do then we take my trusty Toshiba Netbook.
I’m the only one who takes a phone with us on holiday. Luckily with Vodafone I get my UK price plan in most European countries for £3 a day. Which is useful for during the day when I might have work emails coming through. No such thing as a holiday without work when you run your own businesses.
I love my Olympus Camera. I don’t go anywhere without it. I tend to take a small tripod with us too which fits in our day bag, for any photo opportunities. It is also great as I can send pictures straight to my phone which I can then upload to social media channels if needed.
New for this year, we have bought ourselves a Go Pro. So watch out for some of our adventures. I just need to get better at editing videos.
Our trusty Wifi! We found it so useful on previous trips, that we now have a monthly contract. This is great for when we have work to do in the evenings. No need to buy slow Wifi from the hotel or campsite.
Lastly, not so much tech but we don’t go anywhere without our Gro Clock. If we do go away and forget it, then our boys just wake up in the night and think it is morning. So Mr Sun as we call him, works wonders for our family…even when on holiday.
What tech do you take with you on a family holiday?
