Going for a vacation normally inspire people to disconnect from the outside world. It is a chance to get away from the stress and the distractions of our everyday life. The Caribbean has always been extremely popular among tourists and travellers from all over the world for its beautiful sandy beaches, crystal clear blue waters and picturesque islands. Starting from a vacation in the most popular places like the Bahamas or Cuba to lesser known and much more serene Anguilla vacations, each and every trip to this region is full of memorable experiences which you will want to cherish for your whole life.
Technology, like every other aspect of our lives, has made travelling much easier and accessible. It has also made capturing the precious memories that we make during our travel. And if you can to enjoy and capture every moment of your Caribbean adventure, here are the top ten techs which you should carry with you.
1. Universal plug adapter
Not every country has the same type of plugs, as each and every traveller knows. And that is why, a universal plug adapter is not only a must-have tech when you travel to the Caribbean, but it is an essential tool when you travel anywhere outside your own country. These universal plug adapters will let you keep all your gadgets fully charged up so that you can use them as you please.
2. Action camera with a waterproof enclosure
Going on a trip to the Caribbean is all about watersports, taking a dip in the ocean, hiking to remote beaches and a lot of other adventures. To capture all of those adventurous activities, there is no better way to take an action camera with you. And the waterproof case for your action cam is a must, as you will be able to record all of your precious memories even underwater. So when you go for a dive into the water or spend some time snorkelling, you will be able to record all of those moments and cherish them forever.
3. A good camera
Action cameras are a great way to capture your memories in video, but they cannot do the job when it comes to capturing images. And with a destination full of awe-inspiring, picturesque places, it would be a crime if you do not click some stunning images to share with the world. You have to pack a good DSLR or a mirrorless camera with you so that you can take those jaw-dropping stills to post on your Facebook or Instagram profile.
4. A number of memory cards
So you have your action camera and you have your DSLR, and you are clicking away to your heart’s content. But you got only one memory card, and that memory card has become full on the very first day! It is a disaster is it not? That is why you should always carry a number of memory cards with you so that you can swipe them out when one gets full. Three is a good number to start off with, however, some of the professional photographers will tell you that you can never have enough memory cards.
5. A thin and light laptop
Taking a hint from the professional photographers, carrying a laptop with you is a really good idea. First of all, it completely eradicates the risk of running out of storage while you are enjoying your vacation in the Caribbean. You can click as many pictures or capture as much video footage as you want and just dump those pictures or footages on your laptop in the night. This will make sure that you never run out of storage while you are travelling. The laptop will also keep you entertained when you want, as your favourite music or movies or shows will be right there with you. However, choose a thin and light laptop when you are travelling and not a bulky one so that you can carry it with you anywhere you go.
6. A power bank
No matter what gadgets you are carrying with you during your Caribbean adventure, they are not going to be of any use if they are not powered up. And to ensure your mobile phones and your laptops stay on all the time, you need to carry a power bank with you. Make sure you carry a power bank which has the capacity of at least 10,000 MAH, anything less will be too insignificant.
7. Noise cancelling headphone
Travelling to far away places are full of long aeroplane rides, and aeroplane rides are boring and noisy as hell. Normal headphones really do not work well in an aeroplane cabin due to the noise of the plane. A pair of noise-cancelling headphones keep all the outside noises away and help you keep yourself entertained during those long flights.
8. An e-book reader
Many of us love to read a book or two while we are travelling. We don’t get much time to spare during the hustle and bustle of your regular lives, and that is why the travelling days present us with an opportunity of spending some relaxing time while reading some literature. However, carrying a lot of books is not possible while one travels, and that is why an e-book reader is a great option if you would like to have some options for the book you choose to read. You can have thousands of e-books stored in these e-book readers, which will ensure you can pick and choose your piece of literature to read and relax.
9. A portable Bluetooth speaker
A portable Bluetooth speaker will always come in handy when you are chilling by the sea or at your hotel room and are in the mood of some music. They are especially great if you are travelling with your family and friends.
10. A flash drive
A USB flash drive is simply an essential thing you need to carry everywhere you go. Starting from sharing some documents to the hotel desk to taking a digital photograph to the print shop, it can come handy in countless situations.
