Travel Flashlight Tip

Travel Flashlight Tip
Here is a photo of what I recommend tourist and travelers carry when traveling. If you need a larger flashlight, torch or lantern you can purchase one and leave it when finished.

Travel Journal --- What is your travel problem?
I will write a Travel Tips with the solution

The one on the right I purchased in Wal-Mart for roughly two Dollars. The one on the left I purchased in Thailand, it cost about one US Dollar. .

I use this as a keychain, when I need light I squeeze it and the small LED light creates adequate light for most travel needs. I highly recommend this type of battery powered light, it truly is needed.

- Find the location of the lock on your Hotel door.
- Walking home at night
- Reading a map while in transit
- A temporary light until you can purchase a larger one.
- When the electricity goes off, you have a light to find a candle or the door.

I was very happy to find this type of light in Wal-Mart here in the USA, whereby I can recommend it without the remorse of knowing it is would be difficult to buy.

Do you need this, ask a friend that had traveled overseas this question…
“Do the lights go off in other countries?”

very good tip! Most of the 'conventional wisdom' before I went away was to get a small Maglite; since I had one that I use in theatre technician jobs, I took that along. And I lost it, and It's a pile of crap.

I was fortunate, I took a couple of other light sources with me. I had a 'Cyberlite' which is a small key-chain LED torch... Like this one, but you twist the head to activate and so the light stays on when i'm not touching it... I prefer this.

I also took an LED head-lamp... this thing is truely tiny and has an elastic to go round my head like a miner and also a small clip like a clothes pin to clip onto things. This was probably my most useful item, as I can see whilst keeping both hands free. This makes it easier to read, sew, hike etc. in the dark.
