Take your sax show on the road with this tiny saxophone, which claims to be the smallest electronic instrument of its kind in the world.
Traditional brass saxophones are not known to be the most portable of instruments, with most people transporting them around in hefty cases. This can be a problem if you are often on the road but want to keep up with your practice.
The Travel Sax is super small and lightweight, so you can take it anywhere. It’s also Bluetooth- and USB-enabled, so you can connect to a smartphone or tablet to record yourself via compatible audio apps.
There is even an accompanying Travel Sax app which helps you learn the instrument as you go. It has been made to mimic brass saxophones in terms of key position and pressure, so you should have no trouble switching back and forth.
A rechargeable lithium battery offers up to six hours of non-stop playing, long enough for all but the most obsessive saxophone students. When you run out of juice, just recharge via USB.
If you are keen on recording, connect the Travel Sax to your PC or Mac and use it as a mini controller. It’s a great idea and one that caught fire on Kickstarter, rocketing past its funding goal.
The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.
Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.
For many couples, honeymoons serve as a once-in-a-lifetime luxurious trip, often fulfilling a bucket list destination or experience. South Africa is one of those places. The country offers a variety of experiences, whether you want a relaxing or adventurous honeymoon.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
