30 Day Blog Challenge, Day 28

Where will I go to next?

Today in the 30 Day Blog Challenge, we learned about, "Travel Tools and Accessories: All You Need to Get Moving and Go Mobile." So our question today is,

"What travel tools and services are most important to you when taking your business abroad?"

One of my most useful tools is my Ultimate Laptop Travel Kit. I have had it for some years now, so it is probably out of date. But I still  find it very useful. It has laptop plugs in every shape and size for everywhere in the world; a flight light; a phone charger with various fittings for different phones, including a USB charger; a surge protector; a voice and data cable; different kettle plug adapters; modem and TV cables (probably redundant now).It has all sorts of useful items, all neatly packed into a leather case, the size of a pencil case.

Another item I never travel without is a backup hard drive. I am a photographer, so I don't want to lose any images. I keep all my photos on their memory cards until I get back to base, where I save them onto the hard drive, but I don't erase them. Then, when I get home at the end of the trip, I back them up again onto another hard drive before erasing the cards.

And then there is my Kindle, with a whole library of books to keep me amused, or educate me, depending on my mood. As long as I have my Kindle, I don't stress about delays. I just quietly get on with my reading. Bliss!

One major problem I have is with travel Insurance. It is difficult when you are older, as many will not insure those over the age of 60, let alone those travellers over the age of 70! A major problem for nomads is, even those companies catering for the older traveller insist that the insurance is only valid if you begin and end your journey in your country of origin, even if you no longer live there.

However, I wouldn't change my life for anything. I really am a happy travelling nomad!
