Over the course of her many travels, Trend Hunter Editor Jamie Munro has discovered that a few convenient travel items can completely transform a stressful trip into a relaxing vacation.
In order to spread her wealth of knowledge to less-travelled folk, Jamie has chosen her five favorite vacation-enhancing products to take your humble holiday to the next level. Her favorite pick is a website called EatWith that allows travellers to find local people who invite them into their homes for an authentic dinner. Everything from tapas to sushi is available on the site, depending on where you are in the world. By eating at a local's house, travellers can have a truly organic experience, hear some amazing stories about the place they're visiting, and share their own tales of adventure.
Jamie has also found a useful little smartphone app called Pivo, which tells travellers how to order a beer in over 50 languages. Whether you're in Japan, Brazil, or the Czech Republic, you'll be able to use Pivo to order a beer in the country's native tongue.
If you're an anxious traveller who worries about being unable to communicate with locals, rest comfortably on planes, or eat authentic cuisine, these five incredibly convenient travel products will keep all of those worries at bay, giving you the relaxing holiday you've always dreamed of.
