The Compass: Travel Gear

Learning and travel are ways of life on The Compass. That’s why our whole mantra as a program is to stay “lean and mean” on the road. To make your journey as light and easy as possible, The Compass will provide you with  a Eurail TravelPass, making it easy to hop on trains and do your Authentication Travel in style. Yours will cover all of your free travel days and get you to Normandy. Take a look at the awesome power of this tool at: Eurail Passes

Get yourself a Tablet, an iPad or bring along any Notebook you already have!

This way you can store all of your Compass materials in a simple, virtual format: guide books, maps, films, music, pictures just for starters. Plus a tablet or laptop/notebook will be your skype link to home, as well as your email and tech base for taking care of your Compass assignments. Learn more about our recommended tablet: iPad at the Apple Store

Get yourself a good Backpack/ or Roll-Behind Suitcase!

Move easily from city to city, and between hostels and train stations all over Europe with your gear packed safely and smartly in a small duffel/pack like the one we recommend. But feel free to use any small roll-behind suitcase or backpack that you already own. Learn more about the pack we recommend at: http://www.thenorthface.com/catalog/sc-gear/base-camp-duffel.html
