Women's Solo Travel Essentials

It was in 2006 when I went on my first solo trip outside the country. I was ambivalent, scared and nervous because I'm taking the board examination in Hong Kong then. I'm also excited to experience what it is traveling in one of the shopping destinations in the world. After 10 years, I will be traveling solo once again. No one would help me carry my luggage so I have to pack light.

Here are recommended gadgets you could bring when traveling solo.

  • Mini Portable Speaker
I always have a small portable speaker when traveling or even going on a staycation. Music adds color to life so imagine you're at the pool area without music, it's boring right. It happened to us many times since then I always bring my own mini portable Bluetooth speaker.

One of my favorites is a JBL Bluetooth Speakers. Recently, the brand launched cutting-edge Headphones, Speakers, and SoundBars. The JBL Boombox rated IPX7 Waterproof, listeners can take the boombox to pool parties and beaches and leave their worries about rain, spills, and submersion in water behind. The JBL Boombox also comes in two sound modes: indoor and outdoor. Enjoy deeper bass and richer sound in indoor mode, or switch to outdoor mode for expansive sound with strong bass and longer playtime.
  • Headphone 
JBL shares its newest partnership with the legendary Quincy Jones for the launch of the JBL E55BT Quincy Edition wireless over-ear headphones. The legendary GRAMMY winner is most known for his work with Michael Jackson (Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad), Frank Sinatra (It Might As Well Be Swing, Sinatra at the Sands), and Donna Summer (Donna Summer, Endless Summer).

The E55BT Quincy Edition delivers Quincy’s personalized sound for superior audio. It also features the music producer’s voice for the device’s voice Prompts, which were made to guide listeners as they go through the headphones’ features. 

The JBL E55BT Quincy Edition wireless over-ear headphones boasts of a design that is as remarkable as the music producer himself. Made with carefully selected soft leather and equipped with form-fitting ear cushions, it features a comfort-fit, lightweight design, so you can enjoy your music to the
  • Smartphone with great features such as the Vivo V7+
It has 24MP clearer selfie front camera with built-in special Face Beauty 7.0 feature which brightens up photos and evens-out complexion. You may also check the full specs here. Since I'll be traveling solo, I would probably take lots of selfies.
