  1. So costly.. the word that will come to anyone’s mind who reads this post but when they are done blaming the costs and think about it, this things are actually worth investment. loved this informative post. You own all these things for your journeys?
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Actually yes. when you look at the initial investment converted in rupees, they are costly. But it is really valuable, considering how they help you when you are backpacking around.
      I own two of them so far, the Toshiba Memory drive for all the photos I take and the Skyroam. Hunting for the ‘Laser Projection Keyboard… 🙂

      1. I think the same about things too… Even if it’s costly, if it adds something better to aid you then why not buy them instead of buying cheap things that you will throw away in a year or two…

        I hope you ll get all of these soon and have much wonderous experiences. I hope the same for me too… lol

        take care.. see you 🙂
