When it comes to road trips, my most favourite things are the views! 🙂
It’s almost as if you are going through countless mini-destinations before getting to THE ONE. You know, like the appetizer before the main course. A lil’ extra side dish, if you will. Okay, okay… Hahah! I’m gonna stop now. 🙂
Here are a couple of pointers to help you plan your next road trip:
1. Good company.
If you have a say in this, make sure you pick people who bring out the best in you and vice versa.
2. Comfort is key.
Go for loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. And remember to keep warm if it’s cold, especially during the morning and evening hours.
3. Cue the music.
Carry your favourite playlists along with you because you can’t always rely on the radio.
4. Stock the snacks.
Potato crisps, banana crisps, apples, grapes, passion fruits, groundnuts, water, juice… pretty much everything you can carry.
Lastly, you’ll need to find a way to keep the memories of your trip. And what better way to do that than to take lots of pictures. So make sure your cameras and phones are fully charged and ready to go! 🙂
Always be kind.
I recently purchased what I love to call my “photography starter kit”. Every thing I bought was carefully thought of and I’m really proud to have. I do tend to use my phone more than my camera to take pictures though because it’s way lighter and more convenient.
I thought it would be a good idea to share with you what I currently keep in my camera bag:
1. Sony NEX-3N.
With a 32GB memory card and a fully (I try to keep it that way) charged battery.
2. 18-50mm lens.
This is the lens that came with the camera. Also came with a UV filter.
3. Samsung Galaxy Grand 2.
Like 80% of my entire gallery is shot on this little device. If only they made good quality DSLR cameras in this size…
4. JOBY GorillaPod.
I got the small one for my phone since I tend to use it more. I wouldn’t use it with my camera because of the heavy lens.
5. Selfie stick with bluetooth.
I have to admit that I’ve never used it for any of my pictures, yet. I have a strong feeling that when I do finally use it, I’ll try to modify it to a tripod and mount it to some base rather than hold it myself. 🙂
6. Power bank.
This portable charger is, again, just for my phone since it’s my most used device and the power runs out faster than the camera’s.
Always be kind.
