Everything you need for a summer staycation
This country of ours is pretty vast, so if you’re heading off on a road trip, pass the time with a portable DVD player ($59.99) featuring a 7” screen with high quality resolution, car charger, remote control and built in ports for USB and SD card. Unless you’re driving, in which case the only thing you should be watching is the road!
You can also challenge your travel companions to travel friendly card versions of your favourite board games, like Guess Who? and Trivial Pursuit ($10 each from Target).
Enjoy a spot of holiday karaoke with this nifty, go-anywhere microphone from Kogan for $99, just connect it to your smartphone music via Bluetooth and transform into the pop or rock star of your dreams.
With any break you have it’s important to get some ‘me’ time too. For your staycation downtime, pick up a gripping read from Booktopia to while away the day.
Make sure you document every moment—take professional shots with the Canon EOS Digital SLR camera ($497 from Harvey Norman), a perfect entry-level camera for first-time DSLR owners (complete with built-in Wi-Fi and a $30 cashback promotion). If you’re heading seaside, perhaps a waterproof Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera ($193) might be more on the money. Either way, you’ll have quality photographic memories to relive your adventures…until your next staycation.
