We travel with a Microsoft Surface everywhere we go. I edit my videos on it & use it to backup my pictures and vides while we travel. It’s light and the best travel laptop on the market in my opinion.

We use Sony Alpha series cameras to film our videos. They are compact so you don’t look like a super tourist when you take great pictures and videos while you travel.

We use Manfrotto Tripods. They are compact, travel well, and honestly I would not use another tripod for my nice cameras.

Travel Plug that works in pretty much any country & has four USB ports. A must for any traveler.

Want to grab some great gear? We have used Osprey Packs for years & swear by them. Check them out here

Need some clothing for your next adventure? Patagonia has some pretty good stuff for all kinds of travelers.

  13. Can i have your advice between mexico (Cancun) and costa rica? I am looking to relocate for online work. Where do you advice between both? Thanks in advance.

  14. What i know from Costa Rica. Sorry Costa pobre. This is a country full of coronavirus righ now. They have a lot of poor people on the favas. There is a lot of prostitution and drug dealers. They can steal your money. Dangerous country. I prefer to visit other places around the world.

  15. As a Costa Rican-American, I am quite impressed with this video. You gave great and accurate advice, and you even talked about some of the lesser known staples of Costa Rican culture that most tourists would not even think about while they’re here. Pops Ice Cream, Lizano Sauce, Imperial Beer, Tres Leches, and Chicharrones are all giant staples of Costa Rican food culture, and are definetly some things tourists should try out if they have a chance! Especially the Lizano Sauce… once you try it you will be hooked. You can buy a whole bunch to bring home and Lizano basically goes well with any type of dish Americans could make at home and tastes so good.

  16. We had to cancel our trip to Costa Rica. We would of had some amazing videos but oh well. Hopefully travel will exist again soon so be can go back.
