AmazonBasics Dual USB Car Charger
The last thing in the world you when you’re traveling is to have your devices run out of juice. This dual car charger is going to allow you to keep two devices charging at all time. For this price this is going to be one of the best car chargers you can get. It has yet to let me down.
There are times where you will find yourself in a sketchy hotel. Most people like to think that if they sleep on top of the sheets, it will be alot cleaner. The truth is, the top bedspread tends to be left unwashed more time than not. With the Cocoon you always know that you are going to be in a clean pouch.
Tarriss Travel Lock
Even though the TSA travel locks can be easily cut off, they offer me a little peace of mind. If anything it is going to keep the nosey airport staff out of your bag. This isn’t going to protect your bag 100%, because if you leave it unattended in Bangkok, your bag will still walk away.
Jiff Peanut Butter
I never travel without a jar of peanut butter. The brand doesn’t really matter to me. There will be that time that you’ll fly into Cairo at 12am and feel like you are near death from starvation and jet lag. That is when your peanut butter will come into play, and you will be glad you had packed it.
MacBook Pro 13in Mid-2015
When traveling around the world, I need to keep up on running BulkTraveler. My entire tech ecosystem is apple, so I like to keep it consistent with my travel laptop. The MacBook Pro is a solid option and if it does happen to break while traveling abroad, you can take it to any apple store and they will be happy to take care of you.
The guys over at BigScoots hosting are hands down the best in the business. They might be a small hosting company but they have the best support out there. They respond within minutes, and they will fix any problem that arises, no questions asked. As you grow your blog, they will assist with everything along they way. They treat you like a friend and not just as a customer.
We use the Envira Gallery for posting all of our image galleries. The plugin has a very small footprint, and the support for this premium plugin is fantastic. Their galleries are responsive and mobile friendly and offer video support. Another thing I love is how it adds social media share icons to every image. Did I mention how awesome their galleries look???
Every blog needs to build their email list. It helps you connect with your audience outside of your blog. OptinMonster has made the best email plugin out there. You can test all different ways of acquiring email address with their pre-done templates and see what opt-in method is working the best. This plugin also has a small footprint, and won’t slow down your blog.
Soliloque is the fastest loading and most secure slider plugin currently on the market. They have awesome support and they are always willing to help if something comes up. The sliders look awesome and they have one of the best auto featured post add-ons out there. Soliloque makes it easy to keep your blog looking up to date.
Security is always a concern for any website. Sucuri takes over all of your security concerns that you might have. If anything funky starts going on at your blog, they are the first ones to notice it and then let you know what the solution is to fix the problem. The firewall they use is amazing and the support is awesome.
I like to always have data when I’m traveling. I like to be able to keep up with the BulkTraveler social media, and keep in touch with family and friends. XCom is the best option out there for keeping connected anywhere in the world. I have never had any problems with them or their product. It is pricy, but you do get what you pay for.
