cool gizzmos and gadgets for travel part 2

Here’s some more I read about in the NYT:

– ShaveMate razor $9.99 these razors include shaving cream in the handle so you don’t have to tote along travel-size shaving cream and take it out when you go through security.

-NYRIUS 11 – language translator, $39. This sounds really cool -a talking translator with 11 languages including the usual usefuls (spanish) as well as Mandarin, Russian, Dutch and Swedish.

– Contigo Travel mug 19.99  – or anyone like it that you can use to fill up on free coffee, filtered water or OJ offered at hotels, b&bs and youth hostels at breakfast time. These 16 ounce ones reduce the fear of spilling because they have a top that opens only when you push a button.

– Bheestie, $20 – if you’re vacationing near water or in a wet clime, this is a ag full of moisture-absorbing pellets that you can place your wet cellphone, ipod or  camera to dry off.

Cool Gizmos and Gadgets for Travel

Last time I went to London, I  wanted to take home a bottle of Pimms but couldn’t carry it onto the plane – due to security restrictions on liquids – and was afraid to pack it in my luggage for fear I’d end up with Pimms-soaked everything. Enter the WineSkin – a bottle-shaped sleeve padded with bubble wrap (to prevent breakage) and sealed (to prevent spillage if breakage isn’t prevented), according to a recent NYT frugal traveler story.
