New members in my Travel kit

In the year 2012, I purchased two things for my travel kit. One is Coleman Sun Dome Tent for 3 people in green color and second is Speedo’s snorkeling gear.

Coleman Sun Dome Tent for 3 people:-
           The Sun dome 3 Tent features a new Ground Vent for improved airflow; a privacy vent window offers more ventilation, and you can control airflow with Coleman’s Airflow adjustable ventilation. A convenient electrical-access port lets you run a cord from your device in the tent to a power supply outside. An interior gear pocket helps keep your things organized. Setting up this 2-pole dome tent is a breeze—it sets up in 10 - 15 minutes. The durable carry bag includes separate storage sacks for tent, poles, and stakes. I purchased this tent from Dubai but now it is also widely available in India. This tent for camping is very roomy and if we figured in the size of the air mattress, we still had plenty of room to store our bags off to the sides. Proper instructions are available to build this tent.
Setup is easy and packing it up was also really easy. The pouches inside are very convenient and the fly’s and zippers all worked well.

Coleman Sun Dome Tent

  • 3 person, 7x7-Feet layout, 4-Feet and 4-Inch center height and 2-pole dome design
  • Color-coded and continuous pole sleeves with exclusive pin and ring design and InstaClip attachments
  • Proprietary Weather Tec System with series of inter-working features keep you dry and comfortable
  • 75-denier polyester taffeta fly,68-denier polyester mesh inner tent, 8.5-millimeter fiberglass poles
Now I’m waiting for more trips and camps to use this tent. Favorite camping nights are sleeping in the rain though... nothing beats the sound of raindrops on the tent!

My purchased price (Dec 2011) was INR 3800/- (cost in India at that time was around INR 4250/-)

Speedo’s snorkeling gear:-
          I love to watch underwater marine life from my childhood. After my trip to Andaman, we (Me and Renuka) decided to buy a set of snorkeling gear so we can enjoy marine life with our own gear.
The 2 piece mask Snorkel Set is the perfect entry level equipment for the beach. It comes with a deluxe carry bag to keep the set together during transit or in storage. We use this gear for our Malvan trip and looking forward more trips to enjoy the underwater beauty.

  • Comfort fit silicone skirt for leak-proof wear
  • Speed fit easy head strap for quick adjustment and anti-fog coating for clear viewing
  • Splash top snorkel with silicone mouthpiece to prevent water from entering while surface swimming
  • Fin features adjustable heel strap and soft TPR foot pocket
  • Size: Medium
  • Color: Blue
  • Brand: Speedo
  • Model: 7530361-004- Medium

  1. Hello Pritesh, this is a great blog and we traveled to Konkan last weekend after reading thru your blog.
    Could you please help me and indicate a travel blog which will help with planning a family trip to Dubai. Thanks, Suhas

    1. Hi Suhas,
      Really sorry as I haven’t been to Dubai so can’t help u on that.
      I can only suggest your is try to plan trip yourself with the help of Tripadvisor site or similar travel site rather than going by pre defined Package
