​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)

I stopped making travel videos 5 years ago. I gave up because editing took too long and ultimately became too hard. It was overwhelming trying to learn complicated features, I was always so confused about music, and I could never get the effects and transitions working the way I wanted.

However I’m excited to say that I’m inspired to get back into it again, having discovered Filmora Video editor which is the holy grail of easy video editing!

It’s an amazing video editor for both Mac and Windows, which comes with huge libraries of music, transitions, effects, elements, titles, and very cool templates (like split screens) you can literally just drag and drop. It’s so easy to create amazing, epic travel videos with your footage, without a learning curve (it literally only took me 5 minutes to learn it), that beginners can look professional, and professionals can spend less time editing.

Better yet, it’s free to initially download!

This is the World’s First Waterproof Outdoor Power Station

A team of outdoor lovers have invented an incredible power station which can work in minus 40 degree weather, and is completely waterproof. This is the world’s first portable power station which can break through severe outdoor conditions, working in rain, snow, wind, or dust storms. It works in both extremely cold and hot temperatures (- 40 °C to 50 °C / – 40 ° F – 122 ° F), and over 5,000 meters above sea level.

Can you imagine being able to charge your phone on top of Kilimanjaro, or boil a cup of coffee while camping in Antarctica, out on the ice?! The DynaYak N35 is the first ever power station of its kind.

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.
