Here's the drill: it's 2016, and summer is around the corner. If you're thinking of travelling, now is the time to try something different from the way you've been traveling for years. If this is your first time, then it's never too late to start out in grand style.

Sure, going to the beach, hiking or camping is fun. But I want to take it further. Traveling doesn't have to follow the conventional anymore. Thanks to technology, travel's not only fun but memorable too.

Yeah, I know you've got a Smartphone and social apps to break the boredom, but what I'm talking about will totally blow your mind. I've got a list of items that is the real definition of fun, unique and innovative. Yes, I've got you covered from suitcase to flip flops.

1. Sim cards That Keep You connected

The vacation wouldn't be much fun if you couldn't stay connected to folk at home as well as connected online. Rather than subscribing anew to new networks whenever we take a trip, It would be a great idea to subscribe to an international sim card that can serve you on most trips.

With these international sim cards, you can stay connected while travelling, get prepaid internet at very low costs in numerous countries, reduce your data roaming charges and much more so that you don't have to worry about additional spending. You can also use them in a portable wifi router. This Sim Card is especially necessary for you if you are embarking on a multi destination vacation.

2. A suitcase that can turn into a scooter
