As much as I enjoy the somewhat-forced unplugging during travel, I’ve also been getting more and more frustrated with my lack of wifi in foreign countries. As much as I travel, I spend a lot of time getting lost, y’all. It was time to find an international hotspot or pocket wifi device.

If you’re sitting there glassy eyed, overwhelmed, and screaming inside about packing for EBC… I’ve been there!

Everyone loves a good Amazon deal, and carry-on bag filled with Amazon travel accessories is testament to that. Truthfully, I try to shop at small businesses whenever I can.

If you’re dreaming of the trek to Everest Base Camp but it’s just that… a dream… I understand. To trek Everest Base Camp requires a huge commitment. It’s a financial investment, is physically demanding, carries health risks, and will take you at least two weeks. This is not a vacation that you will return to work rested and rejuvenated from! For instance, I trained daily and had to quit one of my jobs prior to the trek in order to get the time to do it.
