Five must-have camping gadgets

Sometimes you see inventions that make you think: why didn’t I think of that? They make life simpler or more fun and therefore a lot more pleasant; and that’s exactly what these five handy camping gadgets do. Real must-haves for the avid camper!

1. Wash your cares away with the Laundreez!

Bringing mountains of clothes is not an option when you are travelling, so it is useful if you can occasionally wash your clothes on site. The Laundreez ‘washing machine’ is so small that it fits in a backpack, so your motorhome, tent or caravan should definitely have a place for it. Put your clothes in this waterproof bag together with water and detergent, close it securely with the cap and shake it! Yes, it is that simple.

2. Anker 15W PowerPort solar panels

During a holiday away from civilisation you may not always have access to electricity. Don’t worry! The portable Anker 15W PowerPort solar panels use the power of nature to charge your camera and other devices.  This handy device uses strong solar panels to quickly charge your devices and includes two USB ports. Another plus: it only weighs 500 grams, so it’s hardly any extra weight when you go hiking.

3. Spark(r) a light

The Sparkr kills two birds with one stone. This tool provides you with a torch as well as a fire maker when you go on an adventurous journey. Ideal because of course you want to carry as few things as possible. You can also hang it up as a lantern with the handy cord that comes with it.

4. Under pressure: the Helio Pressure Shower

Would you like to have a nice shower wherever you want? That’s a luxury the adventurous camper doesn’t always have. The Helio Pressure Shower is a portable shower for when you’re on the road. This handy device consists of a water tank, a pressure pump and a hose plus shower head that you can use to rinse yourself off after a day at the beach or during an intensive trip. Or you can use it to rinse off the dog,  or do the washing up. A big advantage: unlike many camping showers, the Helio Pressure Shower does not need to be hung up anywhere. You can just put it on the ground!

Er moet in ieder geval genoeg te bezichtigen zijn op het gebied van cultuur, historie en natuur. Een van haar favoriete bestemmingen is Londen en eigenlijk Groot Brittannië in zijn geheel. Een droomreis die hopelijk snel in vervulling zal gaan is een rondreis door Schotland.
