Travel with family/friends

Consider taking a train

In Europe, trains are a very efficient method of transportation. Consider taking them for overnight journeys as you can save on a hotel cost that way. You may opt for the sleeper cars or sometimes they have wide seats in the normal day cars.

Take a headset with you

When you fly, most airlines allow you to use your headset from home. This means you can listen to your music with the same quality as at home. So don't forget to take your headset with you on your trips.

Get a power adapter

Unfortunately not all countries use the same type of power plugs. As such this means you have to get a different plug for select countries such as the U.K., the rest of Europe and Australia. All you need is just the plug as most electronic device have an auto switching power supply to regulate the voltage. Consult your item's manual for details.
