6 travel gadgets for 2014 that we have been looking into.

 

 

1. Mophie

Doubles the battery life of your iPhone and it doubles the data storage—up to 32 gigabytes worth—creating enough space for all your media, be it movies and tunes for a 19-hour flight to Sydney or tons of vacation snaps. A companion app integrates seamlessly with iTunes and photo gallery, allowing you to access and manage any file you may have downloaded from an email, from text documents to movies. Available March. $150; mophie.com

Mophie’s latest essential addition to your travel arsenal not only doubles the battery life of your iPhone, it doubles the data storage—up to 32 gigabytes worth—creating enough space for all your media, be it movies and tunes for a 19-hour flight to Sydney or tons of vacation snaps. A companion app integrates seamlessly with iTunes and photo gallery, allowing you to access and manage any file you may have downloaded from an email, from text documents to movies. Available March. $150; mophie.com

2. The Canon PowerShot N100

Feeling left out of photos? The Canon PowerShot N100’s nifty Dual Camera mode cribs from the smartphone playbook (see: Samsung Galaxy S4, iOS Frontback app) to shoot images using the front and rear cameras simultaneously, then sticks your selfie into the main portrait. A Story Highlights Mode also automatically compiles a chronological collection of your images and video, so you don’t have to. Better than a smartphone, a bigger sensor means higher-quality images, and a pivoting screen allows overhead and underhand shooting with precision and ease. Available May. $350;

3.  GALAXY Camera 2

Do more than ever with the Android-powered GALAXY Camera 2, now upgraded with the latest version of Jelly Bean: 4.3. Powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor—and featuring numerous camera and social networking apps—it does what conventional cameras and smartphones cannot. Like capturing brilliant images, even in low-lit settings, and saving photos to your PC and smartphone without having to use an SD card. Plus you can edit right on the display, and wirelessly upload to Facebook and Instagram.

  • The trips we host on @travelwithtjd on our polar journeys for the past years has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life and I’m so incredibly grateful for everything I’ve learned, experiences, felt, seen and for the people I’ve met on our trips! 
Our season starts this September with different groups traveling with @dennisstever and I to Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland! 
We have also released our travel dates for 2020 and with new destinations too and new experiences. I hope you can join us!! Click the link in my bio to learn more or follow @travelwithtjd for updates!
  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon 
Namaste

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
