Clothes, toiletries, camera, phones, cash, cards and passport are the things we need to bring when we travel.
These are all important for us, however, there are other essentials that are not really “important” but can provide cleanliness, security and access that make our travel both efficient and comfortable. So, what are these things exactly? Here are my share of travel essentials:
Whether I am in a guesthouse or in an airport, an electricity outlet is one of the things I always look for. Cameras and phones can’t be used without chargers but chargers can’t also be used without universal adapter. Not all countries have the same type of electricity outlet. For example, South Korea’s outlet needs two rounded metals while in Philippines’ outlet needs two flat metals.
I didn’t think I would ever need a wallet with RFID. Maybe because I don’t have any experience of having my card details stolen to an electronic device. But, it never hurts to be careful, right? What if? Just what if? RFID technology means that it has an anti-identify theft material that blocks any penetration of devices that can read the chips in my card and passport as they walk pass me. Plus, the wallet can keep my passport, coins, cash, cards and even family photos. (But don’t put everything in one wallet to avoid having them physically stolen at once.)
The worst thing that can happen inside my luggage is to have my shampoo spilled out on my clothes. Other than the need to wash the clothes, drying them up will require me to rearrange the outfit schedule. This eight-compartment bag is an on point essential for anyone who prefers to bring their own toiletries. Rubber bands, toothbrush, napkins and any sharp hygiene tools are in one place and I can even hang the bag with its hanger to save space in the toilet.
What are yours?
