Gadgets

There are a lot of gadgets, tools and devices that can be used to enhance your travel and your destination experience. We are field testing a lot of them and will let you know how they worked for us.

  When we travel, we have been carrying foldable toothbrushes as a way to save space. These are made by a nationally-known company, so we figured we were pretty well covered. The we were alerted to Dr. Plotka's Mouthwatchers. They come in regular versions, but also in a foldable model - so we thought we'd try them out. The Dr. Plotka's...
When we travel, there are some things we like to keep cold.  At times this has been a challenge - especially when we stay at a place that does not have a refrigerator. We have tried using an ice-chest style cooler but there has been ice leakage from time to time and we have had mixed results with the...
 Like the tool kit we have in our car for minor vehicle repairs, we also carry a first aid kit in case of minor cuts, scrapes, abrasions, bumps and bruises. We actually found the bright red case with Emergency written in large print on the top side, for under a dollar at a garage sale.  We since have updated the...
  In the past we have written about the little multi-plug we carry to extend our ability to have sufficient electrical sockets when we arrive at a motel that does not have all the facilities we need.   On a recent shopping trip,  Mrs. Funmeister found a new and improved model made by Charging Essentials . This one not only...
   In traveling, one must be prepared for many eventualities. One is the dreaded car trouble.    Although cars get increasingly technological and we are not mechanics, from time to time there may be minor repairs and modifications that need to be done.    To that end, we carry a small toolbox under the seat with some common tools that could...
   You see them everywhere, sometimes in a socket, sometimes at the end of an extension cord. There are simple multi-plugs and fancy power strips with surge protectors, fuses and even on/off switches of their own. You see them everywhere except when you need one - that's why we carry one with us whenever we travel.    How many times...
We carry a few items for security when we travel but none is more convenient and pleasing than our diffuser. Our travel model is the URPOWER 2nd Version diffuser. We picked it up for a song - $16 on Amazon and we use it in our motel rooms for a variety of purposes.  Travel wife is the expert. She...
On our recent trip to Siesta Key, we had several tasks to accomplish. One was to test out a new travel clock.  Over the last few months we had become spoiled, inasmuch as the clock in our bedroom has a function that projects the time on the ceiling, which is quite handy. One does not have to crane his...
  Staying in different places always is a challenge and we have found that carrying a night light is truly a must.   There are a wide variety of hotel. motel, bed & breakfast and other accommodations that have a wide array of different amenities, but there is one problem that is always the same. Stumbling around in a strange,...
How do you stay safe while you travel?    As we travel we want to be safe and one of the ways we secure the room is with a simple door wedge alarm. It is easy to carry in the suitcase and has served us well. I have to tell you that one is the door wedge alarm. There are several...
