This delightful video of traveling to Japan is just so much fun to watch

Francisco Fuentes’ amazing visual diary of his trip to Japan is so awesomely captured and so well edited and so fun to watch that it makes me want to take a trip there immediately.

I Wish I Had This Do-It-All Portable Power Station When I Flew Abroad

I just came back from a two-week vacation in Europe. I took loads of gadgets. How did I keep them charged? Why, an unwieldy gadget cornucopia consisting of two AC splitters, a USB wall wart, and an external battery for topping up on the go.

Video: Iceland might be the most magnificent place in the universe

It’s unfair, really. One place shouldn’t be able to stun your eyeballs as much as Iceland does. Its landscape is just unreal, like it’s a physical manifestation of a glitch in the Universe to allow for so many jaw dropping places in one country.
