The best travel gadgets for your 2019 adventures

Thinking of seeing the world in 2019? Whether you enjoy walking through the mountains or spending a night on the town, these travel gadgets should improve your vacation.

The best travel gadgets for your 2019 adventures
  • What are the best destinations to visit in 2019? Admire the architecture of Puebla, Mexico; find spiritual enlightenment in Agra, India; or explore the rugged South Atlantic island of St. Helena.
  • How useful are translation apps? Apps like Google translate will usually get the message across, but they sometimes make confusing errors. Specialist translation devices perform at a similar level, but you don’t need an Internet connection to use them.
  • What is smart luggage? Any suitcase or carry-on bag with digital features, such as Bluetooth tracking or built-in charging ports. Some also provide specialist storage space for your gadgets and smart locking features for better travel anywhere you go.
