If the Digital Gadget List on the Road – a Girl’s Perspective can fall in the category of Travel Planning, My Digital Gadgets List on the Road – a Guy’s Perspective is already a different story. For those who love technology traveling with a DRONE is definitely a strong desire to get out there and play your toys.
I met Anthony on the diving shop in Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador. Back then he had just an iPhone. And I thought: what a simple guy: traveling around the world with just a phone. Of course that was just the appearance of the story, he has got his travel gadgets to get spoiled ones in a while.
Talking to him today, I told him I’m gonna write about my gadget list while traveling – a post idea I had for months. And guess what was his reply when I asked him about his travel gadgets list?
“I don’t have a gadget list, I have a whole Apple Store with me.” Anthony
