After watching me rummage through my carry-on for a pen yet again, my travel bud gifted me with a Travelogue set. A5 in size, this lightweight wallet folds out to reveal a journal, pen slot (hurray!) and a closable pocket full of scratch maps. Eager…

    Anker Powercore+ Mini

    As someone who spends a lot of time on the move, I found myself to be one of the many travellers searching for ways to conserve my mobile device’s power life and constantly looking for convenient power sockets to keep myself connected for longer. This is not exactly what travel focus is supposed to be about and I wondered if the hundreds of power packs you see advertised are really worth their salt.
