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.
If you use your phone camera for travel photos and video, or take video calls when you’re abroad, the PowerVision S1 is a gamechanger. Here are 12 reasons you’ll love the world’s smallest smartphone gimbal.read more

But with this new online landscape, what are some of the considerations to finding an online casino when you’re moving through countries?

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.read more
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.

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!read more
