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.

Ekrin B37: The Best Portable Massage Gun for Travel & Outdoor Adventure

Ever craved a deep muscle massage while traveling? Maybe your muscles are tight from all day exploring Angkor Wat, or your back is killing you from that airline seat you’ve been strapped into for 10 hours.

Massage guns have always been a tool used in fitness; they relieve pain, reduce soreness, and improve performance for both gym junkies and athletes.

Using them improves the circulatory system, central nervous system, and all of the connective tissues in your body: muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, cartilage, and fascia.

But there’s another activity that puts stress on your body: Travel and outdoor adventure (OK that’s two activities, but for me they go hand in hand!)

And to cut down on the high cost of spa treatments when traveling, a massage gun that you own; that you can pull out at any time and use for unlimited recovery; is a brilliant option.

Portable, light, and in a travel case with 8 hours of battery life, the Ekrin B37 is a fantastic massage gun to take with you for travel, and have on every outdoor adventure.

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.
