As I set off to make 2019 my year of travel, this blog post is dedicated to some of my essentials that I have recently acquired and things that drive me towards my short-term and long-term goals.

The first one on this list is my visiting card. Yes, I got myself my own blogger card. I designed it (well, most of it) and got it printed online. The idea behind having my own card is to network better and to reach out to people in the community by having a tangible recall factor aka a business card.

Another favourite acquisition is this Urby passport cover that I recently received. This one’s from their Wanderlust Collection and it’s custom-made for Tinker Toes! Say what? I love customised goods and this passport cover just fits into my scheme of (travel) things so perfectly! The shimmery aster gold colour and texture of the cover is gorgeous and it’s already become one of my favourite travel accessories. Don’t forget to check out their range of wallets, for men and women. Whether you like your accessories suave and smart or with a touch of quirkiness, Urby has got ’em all.

Now, for some tech update! The most recent addition to my travel gear is this black beauty – the GoPro Hero 7 Black. Say goodbye to shaky videos with its brilliant stabilisation and insanely smooth 4K video. This has to be the best GoPro so far and the most amazing waterproof travel/action camera there is (in this range)!

Head to my Instagram for some GoPro travel content.
