Travel Essentials

Our favorite gear for travelers, content creators, and online teachers

Osprey Porter Backpack

Having the right luggage makes a big difference. Osprey makes incredible backpacks that last for years. The Osprey Porter comes in three sizes; 65 L, 46 L, and 30 L. The two smaller sizes are perfect carry-on bags. We’ve taken ours on Phish tour, shorter trips, and to music festivals.

Osprey Ariel 65 Women's Backpack

This has been Rachel’s go-to travel backpack since 2013. It’s built to carry larger loads, perfect for long-term travel in varying climates. You can choose different sizes based on your height and waste size. It’s very comfortable to carry on longer trekking trips in Patagonia, for example.

Travel Laptop Backpack

You need a comfortable laptop backpack when you’re constantly moving your office around. This bag is comfortable to carry for extended periods of time, it has a built-in lock + charger, and it’s water proof. Rachel has been using and loving this bag for quite some time.

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are like drawers for your backpack or suitcase. They help keep everything organized. You’ll no longer need to pull everthing out to find one little thing in the bottom. They’ll help you save space and save your clothes from getting so wrinkled.

Macbook Air

Digital nomads need a computer that can handle any task but is also light and easy to travel with. An Apple MacBook Air is the best choice. The new models are faster than ever thanks to the new M1 chip. If you’re doing more intense video editing, a MacBook Pro is what you need.

Lenovo Yoga

If you prefer Windows, the Lenovo Yoga is a powerful yet lightweight computer that can do just about anything. Rachel has been using one of these models since 2018. The touchscreen is great for online teaching and the flip-and-fold lid design allows you to set it up in a variety of ways.

Electronic Cable Organizer Bag

Need help keeping things organized? This bag keeps all your cords, cables, memory cards, and other small accessories you use as a digital nomad all in one place. Sasha has a bad habit or leaving things behind or losing them altogether and this bag has made quite the difference. 

DJI Mavic Air 2

A drone adds exciting footage to your videos and travel content. We started with a smaller drone and bought the DJI Mavic Air 2 once we felt more comfortable. It shoots high-quality 4K video footage, takes beautiful photos, and gives you up to 34 minutes of flight time.

DJI Om Smartphone Gimbal Stablilizer

Always get that perfect cell phone shot wherever you go. This smartphone gimbal helps you take smooth videos, flawless selfies, and easily go live on your favorite social media platforms. 

Sony Alpha a6000 Digital Camera

This powerful camera can easily switch from high-quality photo to video mode. Sasha has been using his for many years. It’s perfect for taking professional photos and videos of your travels for your blog or YouTube channel.

GoPro Hero10

A GoPro is the perfect camera for capturing video of your travels, even if you’re not an avid videographer. The Hero10 shoots super high quality, smooth video. Click the button to read all the specs!

WiFi Range Extender

Some places don’t have the WiFi router in a central location, making the signal weak in some areas. Traveling with a WiFi Range Extender will ensure you can work anywhere in your Airbnb/short-term rental.

Portable Laptop Stand

Make your workspace more ergonomic with a laptop stand. It helps your posture and provides a more flattering angle for Zoom calls or teaching English online.

Logitech Headset

Ensure that you can hear and be heard during virtual calls, classes, and interviews while also cutting down the background sounds in noisy locations.

World Wall map

A world wall map is a great teaching background that easily travels with you. Your classroom will always be consistent no matter how often you move and you can show your students where you are in the world.

Quick Dry Microfiber Towel

In the words of Towelie, “You should always bring a towel!” but you don’t want a bulky one that takes up tons of space. These microfiber towels are compact and they dry quickly. 

Hanging Toiletry Bag

This portable and foldable travel bag is easy to pack and keeps your toiletries organized and upright. There are multiple pockets that makes things easy to find. It’s perfect for long-term travel.

trtl Pillow

This travel pillow is scientifically proven to keep your head in a better position when sleeping upright. You wear it wrapped around your neck like a scarf and it’s made of soft fleece. It folds up nicely and easily attaches to the handle of your bag.

Sleep Eye Mask

This light blocking sleep mask helps you get plenty of sleep on travel days and in bright bedrooms. It’s made of memory foam, making it super soft and the wide eye space allows more room for blinking or long eyelashes.

Ultra Soft Earplugs

Earplugs are a must for traveling and seeing live music. They help block out noise so you can sleep, study, work, relax, or attend loud events comfortably. We never leave home without them.
