After sharing my post of Travel Essentials – a few of my favorite things – I’ve decided to add some of the purchases and replacements I’ve made along the way, from Amazon sites in Europe, along with a few things recommended by friends and fellow travelers. I welcome your suggestions of additions! Leave a comment as a “reply” at the foot of the page.

Shopping in France

GoPro HERO11 Black – vidéo Ultra HD 5.3K60, photos 27MP, capteur d’image 1/1.9″, diffusion en direct, webcam, stabilisation

A French acquaintance was crazy about her GoPro 11. I was envious! Not traveling with such a toy this year, as I have way too much to learn about editing. 448 euros at the moment

Shopping in Spain

WANDF Foldable Travel Bag with Shoe Compartment … Waterproof Nylon (Azul Marino, 60L)

In May I had to accept that I’d accumulated enough things that I needed a second checked bag, but I didn’t want a ‘permanent’ case. I found a duffel that folds up nicely when not in use. It held up to being checked on my two flights between Malaga and Istanbul – and Istanbul had been really rough on my new suitcases last year. So I’m very happy with this choice! Purchased for 24.99 euros.

Tira de alimentación universal de energía, Mutec 6 toma corrientes y 4 puertos USB – 100V a 220V / 250V y 2.500 vatios Surge Protector 

Other houseguests in Amsterdam made off with my bag of cords and adapters, so I had to order a replacement surge protector / usb charger. This is a bit bulky, not heavy of course, but has the advantage of accepting universal plugs, with a European-type plug on its cord. The usb ports charge quickly. Bought for 29.99 euros

Shopping in Sweden

FEIKFEIZ bil hoppstarter 2500A topp 22800mAh 12V super säker hoppstarter (tillämplig på alla gas- och 8,0L dieselmotorer) (2500A / 22800mAh) 799.99 SEK

Be prepared!

Some 30000mAh power banks

A real don’t-leave-home-without-it item, if you are hitting the road for an extended time.

Coq Rouge has been suggested as a fun read, and just a lightweight paperback to carry along. You might want to look at the author’s page as well: Jan Guillou.
