    SLC has some amazing snowboarding in the winter right outside the city!

    Here’s a very cool review on the new DJI Spark – may need to have this in my bag going forward!

    If you’re not shooting professionally, get a Mavic or the new DJI Spark. The quality is more than fine for the average hobbyist/blogger/Instagrammer and the portability is key.

    I travel with an Inspire. It’s, uhhh, not easy at all.

    The best camera is the one you have with you.

    But iphones are never going to be quite as good. Skip the DSLR and move to a new mirrorless camera, they’re not much bigger than smartphones, it’s the technology of the future, and the quality on these little cameras is getting pretty remarkable. I highly suggest the ones Sony has come out with in the past few years,

    I’m a professional photographer, and I switched from SLRs to the high-end Sonys – and so has pretty much everyone else I have met that shoots on the go.

    Some lesser thought of items I’ve picked up along the way:

    – Empty ziplock bags
    These tend to come into handy for so many things – sneaking snacks out of a breakfast buffet, needing to pack wet clothes quickly, holding anything that breaks, etc etc. I always have a dozen in different sizes

    – A big swiss army knife (obviously in checked bag)
    I’m constantly in need of a bottle opener, pair of scissors, or a mini screwdriver

    – Chain bike lock
    For backpacking or less secure travel, I have a suitcase that locks, that I can then chain to a piece of furniture, or a luggage carrier on a train or bus – nothing is 100% but it definitely adds a good layer of security.

    – My own pillow
    I’m just really into my one particular pillow that I sleep with every night. It’s squishy and compacts into my carry on fairly easily. I pretty much never leave home without it.

    The Phi Phi Islands have tons of great dive shops and from what I hear, some great dive sites. I was only able to snorkel there but from what I saw, it was absolutely incredible. A lot of the dive instructors on those islands are Australian, so if you’re a westerner who speaks English, that makes it easy!
