powermonkey across Asia

"In late April 2013 I set off by train across the UK, Europe, Russia, Mongolia and China. I was going to my friend’s wedding in China, by train. From Leicester, England to Kunming, Yunnan Province, in SW China, took 14 days by train, including taking the famous Trans-Siberian railway!

I made sure I bought a powermonkey before I set off, to keep my smart phone charged. It made all the difference being able to contact friends and family, plus check my facebook, emails and language translation apps! Throughout the journey I was able to re-charge my smart phone using my powermonkey, through plug sockets (where available), or by using the solar panels, which was especially handy on the Beijing to Kunming train where there were no plug sockets."
