I love nerdy things. Any time I find myself in situation where I know there’ll be a Funko Pop or two and some good company, I’m ecstatic. When I discovered nerdy travel accessories, it was like rolling my first polyhedral dice across the villain’s dungeon map.
What nerd doesn’t like fun travel accessories? Everyone does!

Just as Geralt of Rivia’s mercenary exploits lead him to new places, people, and compromising situations, your travels will hold unexpected new experiences! And require a bit of logistical preparation. Although you won’t have trusty Roach, you can find dependable luggage to ease the burdens of your trip.
On a shorter trip use something small like a Dr. Who Laptop Backpack, Super Mario World Carry-On Bag, or Marvel Hero duffel. On longer trips you’ll need something big and sturdy like the Star Wars Hard Side Spinner Wheel Suitcase or a Poké Ball Full Size Suitcase Cover. For specialized gaming trips, bring a table top miniatures travel bag to protect your figures in route.
Finally, safeguard your luggage from Nilfgaard soldiers and careless luggage attendants by labeling it with a sturdy luggage tag.

If only we all had Hermione’s Undetectable Extension Charm Bag that would allow for an almost infinite amount of space in a suitcase… think of the number of outfits you could bring to a convention or Renaissance Faire!

Travel Tech Gadgets
Quality gadgets amplify the skills of stealthy stars like James Bond, Tony Stark and Ethan Hunt. They know what we know – there’s nothing like a dead battery to slow down an evolving adventure.
Keep all your accessories charged up with a power bank, travel adapter or global charging kit. Assuming you don’t have a private airplane or jet-powered suit, you will likely need some entertainment in-route to your destination. I recommend an iPad and some statement headphones (Hello Kitty, Elf Ears or AirPods with a Nerd-y case).
As you get ready to embark, there are a few last-minute small gadgets that deserve a spot in your travel bag. A Bluetooth adapter will allow you to use your regular cordless earbuds to tap into a headphone jack audio system (in a car or on an airplane). Give your luggage some extra love by using a digital luggage scale to meet weight requirements before getting to the check in counter, and adding a Tile Pro to each of your bags to easily locate them if they get lost.
For a comfortable journey of 300 miles distance or 30,000 feet in the air, a Pikachu travel pillow and Velma Glasses eye mask are the ideal relaxation accessories. When it gets cold, bundle up in a Nintendo controller throw or super hero blanket with sleeves, and some cozy Star Trek socks. When you need some peace and quiet, pop in your loop ear plugs and get some shut eye. You’re almost there!
Health and Wellness
Despite mask mandates ending earlier this year, many travelers are still choosing wear a face mask when they travel. Stock up on a set of Pokémon masks that will comfortably protect you from sickness in public places. If you’re traveling to a destination that requires you to present a vaccine card, keep it in a small Harry Potter themed holder.
When it comes to general travel health, Spider-Man hand sanitizer is a must—buy a set for each of your carry-on bags, totes, and backpacks. Emergen-C vitamin packets are a great way to give your immune system an extra boost and are easy to bring along.
Closing out this collection of nerdy travel accessories are some extra fun odds and ends. You never know when someone will try to steal your identity so disguise your passport with a clever gamer case.
Staying HYDRA-ted is a constant battle that requires a good reusable water bottle. Now you can stop buying overpriced bottles at the airport, helping both your wallet and the environment. Win-win.
When you’re done saving the day toss your pedestrian clothes and super-suit into a large travel laundry bag. Kick back and relax after a long days work – you deserve it!
