With international travel slowly coming back to most parts of the world apart from the Australia and NZ people are starting to get excited about traveling again. The EU were the first to reopen the borders and they did a good job of trying to keep things open as much as possible during the pandemic. The USA has now announced that it will be open from November to fully vaccinated people so that is also another big plus and will surely pick up a lot of interest.
So now that traveling again is back on the menu here are the top 3 things that we recommend you bring traveling for your 2022 trip.
- Mini massage gun – OK this might seem like an odd one but as you get older you will appreciate having such a device on your trip! A massage gun uses percussion to work out the knots in your muscles that you can get whilst carrying heavy travel bags around with you during your trip. Usually these come with multiple heads for different body types. I brought one on my trip in 2020 and used it daily as part of my recovery trip from a year of working out and work stress. I got mine from the massage gun Ireland official store.
- Yetti flask – this is also a must! The yetti flask is perfect for keeping your tea/coffee warm and you will save a fortune on when traveling as you can make these in your hotel.
- Travel pillow – again a must and speaks for itself! Every backpacker must have a good travel pillow for the plane, bus, train etc!
Comment below on what you think your top 3 things are to bring backpacking…we would love to hear about them!
Electric scooters have been on the scene for quite some time now however in Ireland they have yet to be made road legal. One thing that did come out of all of these covid restrictions and lockdowns was that people were doing their best to stay off of public transport and away from buses, trains or any other enclosed places where they are more likely to pick up the virus.
This has led to a huge surge in the sales of electric scooters. The main electric scooter on the market now is the Xiaomi 1S electric scooter. Not only is this the most popular scooter today but it is the best in its price range. There are of course many knock offs that look similar but do not have the same quality of battery, warranty and are generally just not as safe the original Xiaomi scooters.
By using an electric scooter people are able to commute more safety in terms of talking about the corona virus. It means people can commute to work without worrying about being on a packed bus or train and this generally causes anxiety. With the Xiaomi 1S scooter having a distance of 30kms it plenty for most people to get to work and back on a full charge. There is also the Xiaomi Pro2 which is the upgraded model and that has a superior range of 45kms on a full charge..that is quite a distance indeed.
So if you are looking for a way to commute to work and want to avoid being in crowds then this could be a great option for you too. Electric scooters are set to be made road worthy at some stage this summer in Ireland so now there is really no barrier to entry to start your scooting adventure!
