  1. I can’t wait to get a copy of Barnes & Noble’s Secret Places. It’s a great idea but will it spoil the magic of these places?

    1. Yes, you can get RFID-blocking wallets, sleeves and bags that can provide a simple yet effective solution to safeguarding sensitive data. They essential create a Faraday cage around the contents, as I understand it.

    1. Haha… 🤣 it can be a little like that sometimes, can’t it? But that’s the idea of these guides… to bring awareness to some of the many great products that are out there.

  2. It’s frightening to see the hammering that luggage takes on the carousels at airports.

    Recently I saw a case stuck on a corner for about 90 seconds and half a dozen cases battered into it.

    Reinforced corners on the Sterling case are almost an essential nowadays.

  3. Passport, tickets, money, lip balm!

    Lip balm is always on my travel check list.

    When it’s hot my lips dry up. When it’s cold they crack.

  4. Shared this with my partner. All his travel gear is looking very tired and shabby. There’s stuff here that he needs.

    1. Ha… I think you’ve still got a short while to wait there, Craig! But we will be trying to run some similar pieces more often as they are always popular…

  5. The thing I like about these guides is that they help me to keep up with the latest technology.

    There’s always a few new gizmos that would help my life on the road – or up in the air as it usually is a couple of times a week.

  6. Every man should have a formal, smart pair of shoes in his wardrobe. For months, I’ve been on at my husband saying that he needs a pair like those Vincent shoes from Carlos Santos. Now that they’ve got the A Luxury Travel Blog seal of approval may he might finally listen to me.

  7. This ain’t the best of times to have human skin. Skin is getting more and exposed to sunlight and pollution is getting worse and worse. Skin protection makes a lot of sense. Even I’m going to have to start thinking about using some.

  8. Plenty of little luxuries here to help make travelling less stressful. Big as we all know money doesn’t grow on trees so there are some hard choices and sacrifices to be made.

  9. It never ceases to amaze me that businesses are so good at discovering our problems and then designing solutions for them and as this selection of travel goods shows they usually do it all supremely stylishly too.

  10. I literally live on my phone and laptop. They are the hub of my life. Nowadays, I worry much more about having enough power than I do about getting enough to eat during the day. The Moshi charger would be very useful for me.

  11. Never heard of the Apple Vision Pro which may be because I’ve always been a dinosaur when it comes to the latest technology. I ought to find out what it’s all about.

  12. These round-ups help me catch-up with a lot of the gadgets and gizmos which then have my heading rapidly into cyberspace to spend my very hard earned dollars.
