Shop Around – Autumn edition

Whether you’re the pampered traveller or prefer to take the more adventurous route, we’ve got you covered with our round-up of this season’s top shopping finds.

SodaStream Power

Cabin humidity can drop to less than 20 percent on a flight, and even lower on a long-haul flight, which can leave you feeling depleted and groggy, worsening the effects of jet lag and impacting your energy levels, physical capacity and cognitive abilities. Refresh yourself after a long trip with the new Power sparkling water maker from SodaStream. Allowing you to make sparkling water from tap water in seconds at the touch of a button, it gives you the choice of three levels of carbonation, while the brand new range of SodaStream Waters in great flavours such as Berry Mix, Agrum, and Pink Lemonade contain less sugar, and more fruit, putting the fun and flavour into staying hydrated. •
