Finding the perfect photo accessories for the avid travel photographer can seem like a never-ending journey into the depths of Amazon reviews. MeFOTO makes it easier by compiling its top photography equipment in one place with an easy-to-use web search function on the website.


One of MeFOTO’s innovative pieces of photography equipment is the BackPacker Classic Travel Tripod. Among the dozens of travel tripods on the market, MeFOTO’s tripod stands out thanks to its ability to fold into itself for easy transportation in smaller backpacks and suitcases. The tripod is built to accommodate various types of cameras, from point-and-shoot to more advanced DSLRs and even smartphone cameras.


The tripod’s camera holder can rotate a full 360 degrees, allowing for steady shooting when capturing panoramic scenery. Flexible legs can lock into various positions to make it easier to shoot on rocky surfaces or in tight spaces. But the flexible legs don’t mean instability: The tripod is equipped with a spring-loaded recessed hook on the bottom of the central column, which allows photographers to hang heavy items to weigh down the tripod and prevent it from tipping over. Five leg levels aid in obtaining the perfect height for snapping photos.


Available in 10 colors, the tripod can be purchased on MeFOTO’s website or on for $119.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
