The passport is, obviously, our greatest treasure as a traveler, without which on the one hand, we could not travel (that romanticism was already lost in the EU xD), and on the other hand, it reminds us of what we have traveled and what it remains to travel. How many times stamps added on your passport, thinking that they are not enough? xD. Then protect it with this piece of the leather sheath in vintage style, with the world map stamp and stamps. Very cool.

Of course, do not forget that you have to bill it;).

* Travel portable washing bag

I have to admit that I’m looking forward to buying this item and being able to prove it. Yes, a “portable washing machine”, especially useful for camping and rural and diverse natural adventures, and those trips or escapes in which it is not easy to find washing machines or/and wash clothes easily. It occupies very little folded space, and you just have to put your clothes, water, soap, take out the air through a valve, and “massage” the clothes (as if you were washing by hand we are going). And ready … I want it!

And what’s better than having your personal cooler connected by USB that cools your beer cans? Oh, it’s just that it’s a fucking past. So, while you are writing on your blog, you will not have to get up to the fridge to get a beer. Yes, I know, you love her but hehe.

* Portable fridge with integrated speakers

The ideal portable fridge for all lovers of camping, having a cold beer … and music. And it is that this portable refrigerator can take it anywhere in the car, keeping cool your drinks and, besides (already imitating the classic “parrots” of the ’80s), has two integrated stereo speakers so you can listen to music to make the enjoyable journey. It’s cool, is not it?

To see the colleague, you know that safety is the most important and that prevention is better than cure. Every traveler knows that a travel insurance that covers you for any problem or event, is absolutely essential and essential, especially for destinations where a simple problem can come out of the joke of several thousand euros: S. I have been using IATI Insurance for many years and obviously I can recommend it, and you also have a 5% discount! Well, right?

And for the end, the best gift for any traveler, which is none other than a trip, a flight to any place on the planet and always at the best price. There are many search engines. I always use VIA to search for any flight, it is always the reference, for its options, its versatility, its database of airlines including lowcost, and the possibility of searching by departure city … to any destination; ). Give a flight.
