Backpacker Electricals

There are some electrical items that you will not be able to live without when you're travelling. Ofcourse a camera is absolutely vital to capture your adventures along the way, an MP3 player is also a good purchase to help ease those long tedious journeys. A torch comes in very handy when in hostels after lights out and on camping expeditions, and a head torch makes reading at night much easier! If your hair is a bit of a nightmare, a hair drier could come in very useful. Ofcourse with all these plugs you'll need an adapter.
