Alex Tabarrok notes his favorite items for travel: an inexpensive noise-cancelling headset, a Paul Frederick non-iron dress shirt, and his Kodak DX7590 digital camera.
Allow me to suggest a wireless pocket router. Too many hotels have wired high-speed internet. I don’t always want to sit at the desk to work (especially frustrating at resort properties with balconies overlooking the ocean!). Or sometimes my wife travels with me and we’d both like to be online.
This is the one I’ve been using, about $40 + shipping after $10 rebate.
Second, power converters. Magellan’s has a nice website that’ll figure out for you just want converters and adapters you need, wherever in the world you’re traveling (I was shocked to find them accurate for Rwanda!).
And don’t forget that clicking on the link to Magellan’s at ebates.com will earn you a 7% cash rebate on whatever you purchase.
(Most online shopping earns cash or miles, of course, for which Andrew Cram’s chart is an invaluable reference.)
And truly indispendable for long trips? Ambien.
