Unsorted thoughts about traveling with tech from a horrible nerd 🤓

  • Not sure if I need pocket wifi, I'm expecting Google Fi to just work 🤞🏻
  • Might buy a sim card at the airport too, not sure 🤔
  • For the plane ride, I have a pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones and an iPad loaded with downloads from Netflix, HBO, Disney, Plex and a metric fuckton of Kindle books (I can also just re-watch The Venture Bros!)
  • Suitcase and backpack have been outfitted with AirTags
  • Configured Tailscale for secure, remote access to my home network
  • Installed WhatsApp for the first time
  • Copies of my ID, important papers, travel plans and reference material saved to my phone so I can access it without an Internet connection
  • Before I leave: Download my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist among others
  • Downloaded the Google Translate language pack for Japanese
  • Traveling with an M1 MacBook Air to run Photoshop and Lightroom. For years I stuck with Lightroom Classic but I'm starting to use the cloud-based Lightroom app on macOS and... I like it. It seems faster!
  • The Macbook Air with a wireless mouse is a workable combination for getting things done
  • Haven't worked out a backup solution yet, might settle on an external hard disk
  • Need to invent an SD card management system to avoid accidentally formatting things I care about
  • Installed Yurekuro Call for earthquake notifications 🙀
  • Running OwnTracks on my phone to periodically save my location over time. Below is the result of some code I wrote with Python and OpenStreetMaps to show my locations during a recent trip to Florida.
  • Configured a remote camera to check in on my cat 🐈‍⬛
