Hi <<First Name>>

Hope you are well! This was a super busy week, with lots of walking as we got to test the new Samsung S9+ all around London for a fun little project we're doing with Three UK. The best of these mobile phone photos will be exhibited in the Herrick Gallery in London on August 1 and 2, how cool is that?! You can see some of the action from participating bloggers via the hashtags #GoRoam and #ThreeGallery.

I went on 4 different photo walks, around Tower Bridge, the Millennium Bridge, Kensington and Leadenhall Market and got some nice shots. Now it's time to edit them and submit... Exciting!

The rest of the week pretty much involved me sitting behind the laptop writing new content or opening the front door because another parcel got delivered. I'm doing a few other cool product reviews in the next weeks (ranging from books to hiking shoes and backpacks), so keep an eye out on the blog to see some cool new travel (related) gear appear!

If there are any products you'd like us to test (or perhaps give away in a competition) for your upcoming travels, please message us so we know what you'd be interested in! 

For now, have a great rest of your weekend and speak to you next week,

Why Travel Is Important

Why is travel such a common desire among people? Why do we want to go through the trouble and the expense to visit a foreign land? A place where we most likely don’t know the language or how basic things such as transportation work. It would be so much easier and cheaper to stay close to home.
