Travel Gadgets Every Digital Nomad Needs

Travelling is often a bit stressful for even the most frequent travellers who identify as digital nomads. You’re constantly making decisions. Do I bring a certain pair of shoes, or grab a few extra socks? Do I have my wallet with me, or am I relying on a credit card? Does my phone support GPS? In the digital age, having travel gear that allows you to capture your surroundings can make all of the travel stress a little more productive. If you’re living on your own, you’ll probably have your own digital ecosystem, with your own laptop, Smartphone, and tablet. However, if you have to travel with a significant other, you’ll want to check out these travel gadgets.


If you want to be able to quickly take a look at what you have on you before deciding where to go or what you want to do, you’ll need to have a travel backpack. A good travel backpack should have numerous pockets for accessories, such as memory cards, headphones, and flash drives. Your back should be comfy and supported while you’re travelling, and if you want to wear a bag on your back, a laptop bag will also work. You’ll need a way to organize your camera, or you’ll end up digging around for your camera when you’re trying to find something else on your pack. You’ll also need something with plenty of room to easily store your camera and other personal items. On the smaller side of the pack spectrum are backpacks that can fit in your backpack when you’re travelling, and your cell phone will be protected and tucked into the middle of the bag, so you can carry it like a wallet. On the larger side of the pack spectrum are backpacks that you can wear on your shoulder, which make travelling while sitting comfortably a breeze. If you want to take photos on the go, and don’t have the luxury of having a camera to take with you, you’ll want to carry a camera with a single lens, and you’ll need to have a bag that can fit your camera, lenses, and other accessories.

One of those walking sticks with seat combos makes total sense too, because they save so much space and come in very handy in action.

Lens Bags

As you decide which cameras you want to take with you on your trip, you’ll probably need to pack them. While digital camera bodies are compact and lightweight, they’re often large and awkward to carry, so you’ll likely want to pack them in a backpack. Lens bags will fit easily into your backpack, and won’t take up too much space, so you’ll be able to carry the camera comfortably. When travelling, it’s much easier to find a comfortable spot than it is to shuffle around carrying a camera bag. The lens bags will help you avoid digging for your camera in your pack while trying to move around.

Travel Screens

Travelling gives you plenty of opportunities to see the landscape and find out more about the culture, which may seem like exciting new destinations, but may also lead to some anxiety. You’ll be walking in crowds, moving quickly, and wondering what’s around the next corner. If you’re a digital nomad who can’t stop moving, it can be tempting to try to take a quick glance at your laptop screen, or to read a quick text message. If you’re worried about going blind in the middle of a crowd or reading something while you’re moving, you may want to invest in some travel screens. Your screen will likely also allow you to do a little more work than your laptop while you’re travelling, so you’ll be more productive when you’re out exploring.
