Travel tools and resources

On this page you’ll find the exact tools, gear and resources I use to travel, take photos, and maintain this website.


MacBook Pro Retina 13.3 inch
My main computer.

iPhone 13
This is the smartphone I use at the moment.

Apple Magic Mouse
Not the best mouse available, but great for travelling (it’s really flat!).

Apple EarPods
I tried with AirPods. I can tolerate the wire in exchange of not having to charge another thing.

Canon EOS 1300D / T6

Canon EF 50 mm 1.8 STM Lens
My trusty 50mm to food & drink shots, portraits and street photography.

Canon 18-55mm
Just the lens I found with the camera.

Canon EW-63C lens hood
Prevent unwanted stray light from entering the 18-55mm lens.

Targus Remote Wireless presenter
Cheap clicker for when I give presentations.

Google Chromecast
Send audio and video content from smartphone, phone or tablet to tv.

Syncwire 4-USB Port Wall Charger

Bags & wallets

Pack all your things in these cubes, then place each cube in your suitcase. Best travel hack ever!
