Who you need a Torch on your Travels
So here’s my ‘why you need a torch’ story…
It was a warm evening in Pushkar, India. We stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the lake – Baratpur Palace. My two travel buddies stayed in one room and I had my own. I was reading, relaxing, chilling, as you do when backpacking around India.
It was out of the corner of my eye that I saw it – the biggest, most disgusting cockroach I ever did see. It was looking at me! I swear it wanted to attack. ‘It’s ok,’ I told myself, ‘I’m armed and ready with a book!’ As long as I could see where it was, I was ok with it being in the room.
And then this happened…..the electricity cut out. Did I have a torch? No! I was relying on my travel buddies, who were in a room across the way, which I couldn’t get to in the pitch black! And then I heard it drop……
Thankfully, the electricity came on within 10 minutes and the cockroach was still in the same place – phew! But I never travelled without my torch after that!
Why Maglite are the Best Travel Torches
If you are looking for a travel torch, I highly recommend Maglite. Benefits of these torches are…
- Strong and Durable
- Strong beam
- Drop Resistant and Water Resistant
- Compact Maglite are made from high grade aluminium
Maglite have designed a variety of sizes and colours, so you can choose the perfect Maglite for you.
PINK Compact Maglite!
Maglite have designed a variety of sizes and colours, so you can choose the perfect Maglite for you. The pink compact Maglite is my current Maglite of choice!
The pink compact Maglite takes 2 X AA batteries. Although it is just 14.5 cm in length, it has a beam length of 96m!
Don’t let yourself get attacked by falling cockroaches, get yourself a Maglite 😉
