Sometimes on vacation, all you want to do is sit back and watch your favorite movies and TV shows. In the streaming era, that means logging in to Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Now. Sadly, not every hotel and Airbnb is going to offer a smart TV. For those of us who haven’t watched cable in years, that can be quite a disadvantage.

To avoid the horror of watching scheduled programming and suffering through commercials, bring along this Amazon Fire TV Stick. As long as you can connect to WiFi, you can plug in this discrete little Internet connector and access your favorite streaming services from anywhere!

Just plug it in, follow the easy set-up steps, and log back into your personal streaming accounts. Before you know it you will be watching your favorite movies and TV shows, right from the moments you left off at! It will literally feel like you picked up your own TV out of your house and brought it with you. What could be better than that?


Travel Tech Essentials:

Planes are loud, as are your fellow passengers. Sometimes the best thing you can do on a flight is turn on some music and tune everything out – and these Bluetooth headphones are perfect for that! They are small and easy to pack, which is great if you are trying to travel light. Plus, they connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, so you won’t have to wrestle with any cords.

The one small cord that connects the two earbuds together sits across the back of your neck and ensures that you won’t actually lose your right or left earbud to the abyss if you wind up falling asleep and fidgeting during your journey. The two buds even have magnets, so they will conveniently snap together around your neck when not in use.

This slim, convenient little piece of technology is bound to make your trip better than ever.
