HP Pavilion Laptop

HP Pavilion laptop

I can't recommend this laptop enough. I have it since September 2015, so it's relatively new. It starts in 5 seconds and has a 1 TB hard drive. However the biggest selling point for me that it has a battery life of 6 to 7 hours. Obviously applications such as Photoshop or Dreamweaver use more battery life.


nomadic mick iphone 5

Unlocked iPhone 5

I have a unlocked 16GB iPhone 5. This is the most reliable phone that I ever had. My only regret is that I didn't get the 32GB model. The 16GB Iphone just isn't enough space but I get by fine with it. It has an 8 Megapixel camera which is as good as any standard digital camera.

nomadic mick gp power bank

GP Power Bank

I have this power bank over 2 years now. It can be used to charge to smart phones (iphones etc), tablets (ipads etc) and cameras. It has a normal USB port. I had tried cheaper power banks before but there was always a problem with them. This power bank take 2 hours to fully charge and will then fully charge 4 devices. However the best feature of this power bank is it's accelerated charging ability. So not only is it a remote charging device, it also charged a device 4 times faster than a electric outlet.

Travel World Adapter

Universal Charger is a most have. This one also has 2 USB ports, so you can charge 3 devices at once. Of course it has the 6 main power point zones covered: Switzerland, Italy, Australia/China, UK/Ireland, USA and the rest of  Europe.

nomadic mick sandisk usb drive

Sandisk USB Drive

This is the most reliable flash drive that I have ever had. I keep a backup of my most important files on this. It can be password encrypted for added security. I once put this into washing machine for a 2 hours washing cycle, but that didn't harm it.


nomadic mick wheelie bag

REVELATION Wheelie Suitcase Alex Case 105 L

This is my latest and best wheelie suitcase. I have gone through so many wheelie suitcases over the years that I've lost count. I've had a very expensive wheelie's and one wheel broke after 2 years. These inexpensive wheelie seems very durable and it only costs €65/$78.

nomadic mick day bag

Shugon Classic Laptop Backpack 30 L

This backpack doubles as my day bag and my carry on luggage. It has a sleeve in the first compartment to hold your laptop. It's very comfortable on my back. The front compartment has an organiser section and a zipped pocket within that section. It costs approx €30/$38.
