Backpacking around the world is one of the most exciting and upsetting experiences anyone can have. That said, traveling around the world also comes with its share of challenges, as many extremely enthusiastic world travelers soon discover before they have even reached their fifth country or their second continent! Fortunately for us, there are so many fantastic gadgets available in the modern world – all designed to make our lives as easy and safe as possible. With many of these gadgets available in portable form, they are effectively becoming essential for any long-distance trip. Let’s take a look at the best gadgets to pack in your backpack…

Universal Power Adapter Kit

Since so much of our life can now be managed online (banking, business email, staying in touch, etc.), it is essential that we always have a way to recharge our electronic equipment. When traveling to several countries on different continents, it can be difficult to charge our equipment because there are many different standards for devices. Fortunately, by packing a universal power adapter kit, you will always be able to charge your devices and stay in touch with the rest of the world, wherever you are!

Unlocked Smartphone

When traveling abroad, it is essential to always have a smartphone with you to stay in touch and be able to contact help in matter of emergency. Not only that, but smartphones can be loaded with many good, effective and practical applications. Financially speaking, there are several excellent tax calculators and estimators that work wonderfully when combined with a budgeting application. Our best recommendation is an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Siii, which allows you to quickly, easily and inexpensively change local SIM cards wherever you go. This will save you a fortune in hidden roaming charges that can easily add up to hundreds of dollars while you travel. The Galaxy Siii will also be very useful by allowing you to capture the best moments of your trip on the camera with crystal clear clarity using the excellent 8 megapixel snapper. In addition, the model has a wide range of Android applications to make your life easier, such as free dictionaries from English to foreign languages and applications that help you find housing in any country.

Swiss Army Knife USB

One of the great challenges of hiking is trying to fit everything you need to take with you into the limited amount of luggage and in-person space you have, not to mention choosing equipment that puts minimal pressure on your shoulders! So it is extremely useful when you have the opportunity to combine several individual elements into one element. The Swiss Army Knife USB flash drive excels in this role because you have a range of useful functions at your fingertips (blade, blade, LED light and screwdriver) while having the electronic advantages of the USB flash drive to store valuable data in a compact format.

Going on the road as a backpacker is fabulously rewarding, but can also have challenges. Fortunately, with these great gadgets, the challenges can be minimized so that you can have the time of your life.
