Carry-on Luggage

Since we travel so much, we have gone through a lot of luggages. One of our favorite carry-on luggage is Lipault brand. They're super light and it fits a lot stuffs. They also have double spinner wheels - this make this luggage very mobile and easy to carry.


Travel Hard-drive

Lacie hard drive is perfect for on-the-go image transfer with memory card reader.

If you don't need the memory card reader, Sandisk will be amazing for you.


Fujifilm Camera

This is my favorite personal/travel camera. It is light to travel with and the quality is film-like and beautiful.
