Where to Play Online Bingo When Traveling Overseas

Where to Play Online Bingo When Traveling Overseas

For many years, bingo has become known as a game played in retirement homes by seniors and middle-aged women. Though this stereotype is incorrect, and in many countries the game is more cultural than their (other) most popular ball sports; for instance, more money is spent every year in the UK on bingo tickets than it is on football!

Bingo is a game appreciated for its simplicity and social form, and around the world it’s played in pubs, drinking halls, cruise ships, and, in Italy, where it was invented, it’s still played over pizza every Saturday.

If you’re traveling, Bingo is also a really fun way to practice your language / number skills with locals. But with the closure of many land based bingo halls, can you still partake in the fun in the new digital era?

12 Reasons Travelers Will Love the PowerVision S1 – World’s Smallest Smartphone Gimbal

When it comes to travel essentials, there are none more important than your phone (your passport is strong competition though!). And when it comes to essentials for your phone, travelers need three main fundamentals; a sturdy phone case, headphones (because the whole plane doesn’t need to hear the soundtrack to Bridgerton), and a gimbal.

A gimbal is a handheld device that allows your camera to rotate smoothly along an axis, so you can take smooth travel video (without the camera shake). There are a million of them on the market, but only one which is truly worthwhile for travel.

The PowerVision S1 is a stylish and portable smartphone gimbal with easy magnetic mounting, AI tracking, gesture control for hands free recording, a built-in tripod, and a portable power bank with wireless phone charging, all packed into a compact device that fits in your pocket.

​Tips to Finding an Online Casino When Traveling

​Tips to Finding an Online Casino When Traveling

Exploring a new destination, and all the adventure that comes with new sights, sounds, smells, and tastes is energising, and there are plenty of ways to stay entertained. But then there’s the time you spend in transit – actually traveling from point A to point B. And this is a lot less interesting!

There are plenty of ways to stay entertained during your downtime while traveling, especially now that the world has become more connected, and it’s easier than ever to travel with a WiFi connection. You can run with the more traditional passtimes, like reading a book, people watching, or doing airport yoga between the seats, or you can binge watch Netflix, scroll the hours away on social media, or fine tune your casino skills with online games.

Gambling has evolved throughout the world much since the first games of dice in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) in 3000 BC. And while land based casinos are still a big tourist draw, online games are now also part of the lives of modern day tourists. But with this new online landscape, what are some of the considerations to finding an online casino when you’re moving through countries? After-all, you want the best gaming experience possible, while still safe guarding your money and data.

The Laptop Strap: Travelers Will Love This Camera Strap for Your Laptop

The Laptop Strap: Travelers Will Love This Camera Strap for Your Laptop

As a young traveler on my first flight trip, I made the mistake of taking a very bulky carry-on. I had no idea how narrow the aisles were on the plane and how tight the storage space would be underneath the seats. This made for a less than pleasant experience as my big laptop bag (which also doubled as my purse) overlapped onto the arm rests of passengers and embarrassed me all the way to my seat.

Thankfully I’ve learned so much since that first flight. As a writer, I need to always keep my laptop readily available (much like my partner, who needs to keep his camera ready as a photographer).

But more bags equals more problems, so 9 times out of 10 I just end up carrying my device in the crook of my arm. It was less than ideal, but it was better than bulky baggage, right? That is, until I discovered The Laptop Strap! It’s the perfect way to carry a laptop for any traveler.

Wondershare Filmora Review: Best Video Editor Everyone Can Use (The Easy Way to Make Travel Videos)

5 Things Your Smartphone Can Replace During Travel

5 Things Your Smartphone Can Replace During Travel

It’s the age of the minimalist traveler, and it’s something we definitely take for granted now – just how easy it is to travel light. Gone are the days of traveling with bulky paperbacks for entertainment on long plane rides, big cameras and bags of film (do you remember traveling with film?!), and road tripping with an actual atlas (who even knows how to read a map anymore?!).

Quite amazing to think that all of these things have since been consolidated into one pocket sized device (especially for those of us who actually know what an atlas is!).

That’s right – nowadays you simply hit the road with your smartphone, and you have a camera, map, your banking, plenty of entertainment, and even a translation device. Here are 5 things your smartphone can replace during travel … and here’s to traveling light!

Portable Laptop Monitor for Photo Editing: INNOCN 4K OLED Travel Monitor PU15-PRE Review

Portable Laptop Monitor for Photo Editing: INNOCN 4K OLED Travel Monitor PU15-PRE Review

Earlier in the week I reviewed my favorite entry level portable laptop monitor; the INNOCN Travel Monitor N1F PRO, a great way to enjoy an external computer display on the go.

Though since then many of you have reached out and asked about a portable monitor with a screen specifically built for photo editing, which is still slim enough and sturdy enough to travel with on the road.

Much of my photo editing happens on the road; in the downtime I have in hotels, or in transit. Though I’m often traveling with an old laptop (safety hack, I leave my good laptop at home!), or sharing photos straight from my phone. So I definitely understand the importance of investing in a high quality laptop monitor, with a premium screen for a strong and vivid visual experience.

For me that’s the INNOCN 4K OLED Portable Monitor PU15-PRE. And just like the N1F PRO, for this monitor I also have a discount code: $120 off code: INCMT15RE

Laptop Travel: Review of the INNOCN Travel Monitor N1F PRO

Laptop Travel: Review of the INNOCN Travel Monitor N1F PRO

I started life as a digital nomad 7 years ago. At this time, working from my laptop while traveling the world wasn’t heard of.

And even in 2019, it was still a very ‘out of the box’ idea for most of society, that you could pack up your belongings, grab a laptop and a travel monitor, and work from the road.

My office has been on a cruise ship in Antarctica, from a hammock in the Galapagos Islands, and from a treehouse in Costa Rica with the sloths and monkeys as my neighbors for the night.

Of all the 100 countries I’ve visited, my laptop and portable laptop monitor have always been with me, and now that the world has woken up to being able to work from home, people have also realized ‘home’ can be substituted for the road.

Whether you’re working from home or the road, the INNOCN Travel Monitor N1F PRO is one of my favorite entry level laptop monitors for personal business, office, and travel.

How the Pandemic has Changed Gambling Tourism and the Casino Industry

How the Pandemic has Changed Gambling Tourism and the Casino Industry

Covid-19 has impacted nearly every industry including the gambling industry. Many of the world’s top casinos have been forced to close intermittently as countries go in and out of lockdowns.

While things started to look promising for gambling tourism to return in 2021, the more serious Delta variant has forced many casinos to find alternative ways to appease their customers’ urge to gamble. One of these ways has included the increase of online live casinos.

Over half the world’s population gambles at least once a year, many of those choosing to do so in casinos while traveling. As the gambling industry has grown, it has become an integral part of tourism and the economy of many nations.

Casinos of course employ a great deal of people themselves, but it’s also the flow-on effect of drawing millions of international tourists and having them support local restaurants, hotels, and attractions that really impacts the local economy.

The pandemic has forced casinos around the world to take their gaming floors online, inventing new ways to enhance the experience to make it as close to the real thing as possible.

While online casinos may never fully replace real-life physical casinos, they have definitely found their place and are likely to stay given that there remains uncertainty of when many countries will open up their borders and restrictions will be eased enough to allow famous gaming floors to open to tourists once again.

How to Keep Up with Your Gaming Hobby When Traveling the World

Whether you’re a professional gamer en route to an overseas tournament or simply resort to video games to kill the boredom at airports and during long-haul flights, many of us wouldn’t think of leaving our beloved virtual games behind when traveling.

For anxious travelers, video games can help alleviate the many stresses of traveling, and they’ve become so lifelike that many almost make you feel as though you’ve been transported to another world.

For avid travelers who have been restricted during the pandemic, Tomb Raider lets you visit Peru, Assassin’s Creed can transport you to places like London and Egypt, and Microsoft’s Flight Simulator can pretty much take you anywhere in the world.

Thankfully, travel restrictions are beginning to be eased and we can get back to real life travel experiences. While many of us will gladly put down our games in favor of real life hands-on experiences, it’s important to remember that with international travel often comes a lot of downtime.

Toucan: The Free Browser Extension that Helps You Learn a Language Without Even Trying

Toucan: The Free Browser Extension that Helps You Learn a Language Without Even Trying

It’s widely accepted that the best way to learn a new language is to immerse yourself. But how do you immerse yourself in Japan when borders are locked down? Or when you don’t have the means to just take off and escape to Italy (a girl can dream!).

There are plenty of ways to immerse yourself in language from home these days; apps, games, and even video chat with foreign strangers (though that’s if you’re paying attention to what they’re saying!). The problem is though, that while companies are constantly trying to make language learning fun, you still need to take time out of your day.

But that just changed! Toucan is a free Chrome extension (download it here) that helps you learn a language as part of your normal, everyday web browsing. Once turned on, it scans the text of whatever website you’re reading and changes a small number of words into the language you want to learn.

It peppers your normal daily web experience (social media, news and everyday reading) with translated words so you can pick up a new language without even trying, without changing your behavior, and without taking any extra time out of your day.
