Electronics: it’s Crazy

When traveling, I tend to be a light packer. I only bring the necessary clothes and documents and don’t put too much stuff in my toilet bag: a roll-on deodorant, a dental kit and a razor. For obvious reasons, I don’t even bring a comb 😉

But then, when it comes to electronics, everything changes…


I’m traveling to the United States in a few days and this evening I made a list of everything I will put into my suitcase. This is what the electronics category looks like:

  1. Laptop
  2. Laptop power adapter
  3. Smartphone
  4. Smartphone (and ebook reader) charging cable
  5. Portable battery charger
  6. US Sim card
  7. Smartphone mount (for the car)
  8. Running watch
  9. Running watch charging cable
  10. Ebook reader
  11. Dashcam
  12. Dashcam power adapter
  13. Earphones
  14. USB car plug adapter
  15. US to Euro plug adapter
  16. 6 outlet power strip

I won’t say I’m terrified because I’m used to it. But it’s crazy, isn’t it?
