This passed year I have traveled to England, Spain, Greece, and Turkey. Between my flat iron, electric curler, curling iron, and hair dryer, phone charger, laptop charger, and all my family's electronic necessities I thought we would be in real trouble. I bought four of these bad boys and the difference they make is astounding. Before I had a zip lock bag with 10 different plugs in it as I struggled to find the right sizes and voltage requirements. I even fried my brand new chi flat iron in France, along with a portion of my hair when I was in high school due to adapter issues. Don't let something so simple add to your list of stress factors while traveling, just buy one of these and enjoy your trip!
