Hands down, the absolutely best travel accessory we have is the Balanzza Digital Luggage Scale. This $25 gadget has saved us hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in excess luggage weight fees.
Other excellent accessories include Garmin GPSes – we presently use the Garmin Nuvi 350 – loaded with maps for our destinations. The base units come with North American travel information, including roads, attractions, and even shopping information.
And our trip wouldn’t be complete without electronic book readers. Jake is favoring Amazon’s Kindle DX at the moment, while Linda is alternating between the Kindle and the Sony Reader PRS-700. Krystyana uses a Sony Reader PRS-505.
