My Favourite GoPro Travel Accessories

I began traveling with the GoPro in 2013 on my second trip to India. Ever since then I have fallen in love with this mini action packed camera. Throughout my years of travel I have enjoyed using many of GoPro’s accessories, however, not all of them are created equal.
As a professional travel blogger, I can honestly tell you that the world of travel pairs incredibly well with this powerful little cam. I never leave anywhere without my GoPro anymore. Currently, I am using the Hero 4 Black Edition, GoPro’s top end model. But in the past, I have used many other of the models which also worked great!
During my travels, I have recorded awesome videos of diving with whale sharks in the Philippines, rock climbing to the rock-hewn churches in Northern Ethiopia, and motorbiking across the Himalayas over the world’s highest pass.

The GoPro is simply unmatched by other travel video cameras!
