    Travelogue

    For the budding travel bloggers among you, I’m sure you’ll agree that being organised and finding time to write on the go is not always easy. If you have even a mild version of OCD (that’ll be me), then a trip can see you carrying notebooks, pens, tablets, diaries and more to ensure you have what you need to hand when you are working remotely. 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. The Anker power packs were one of the first selections I came across. With dozens of reviews for each design and economical price tags, these seemed like a worthy option to try and so being a fan…

The list for use actually includes a number of places such as traffic jams, country walks and camping trips. The She-wee extreme in Nato green that I opted for came as a set of the She-wee original, extension tube (for use with the Peebol) and carry case. This ingenious…

    Chocolate Frog

    The Chocolate Frog is one of the best selling sweets available from the store at the WB Studio Tour and I couldn’t resist buying one of these after our afternoon learning about all things Harry Potter. The box you buy is beautifully presented and you’ll notice quite a weight to it as you carry it to the till. After unwrapping the cellophane, the box opens to one side revealing a very decent sized chocolate frog in a sealed wrapper plus a collectible wizard card underneath. The details state that there is 150g chocolate inside. There was in fact a few grams over this. The frog is solid chocolate, so an…

    Staying safe

    Staying Safe is something you learn to do along your travelling way. There is an element of common sense and awareness of your whereabouts, but there are also some surefire tricks that you can adhere to for every trip.  Here are a few ideas that I have found useful: Ziplock bags – There are many sellers of ziplock bags out there. Amazon in particular have a great selection of these. I bought a shoulder bag as a day pack for a recent trip around Europe and was very impressed. The bag was a medium handbag size with wire in the straps to prevent thiefs cutting the strap and whipping my…
